The published reports of the sol diers reunion at Columbus is that the old soldiers are haying a grand time. Mr. Thurman is said to be very feeble, and some of his friends are fearful that he will not live until next spring. Jenkins the man who killed a showman at Granada last summer was found guilty of manslaughter at J.as Animas this week. J. F. Lyttle, of Granada, has been nominated by thp democrats for state Senator of the tenth district, J. G. Gunter, of Trinidad, for Judge and J. H. Maupin, of Fremont county for district attorney of the third ju dicial district, they will all conclude to stay at home after the sixth of November. Pres.Cleveland accepts the nomina tion of president, and in his letter says he really dors not believe in tre<- trade, or something like that, but as lie did not Relieve it right for a man to be president but one term a few years ago and now thinks it just the proper thing, he may be joking about his free-trade ideas. General Harrison’s letter of accept ance was given to the public Tuesday, it is in short a platform upon which the republican party can safely go to the polls. Mr. Ilarrisou speaks in his letter to the point, there is no uncertainty left in the mind of the reader what he means or as to what his views are on matters of greatest importance to the nation. There is a daisy little mountain narrow g&gue road, that but little is said, but is one ot considerable im portance and will in the near future extend their line north and south, we refer to the Texas, Santa Fe & Northern, the road now runs from Santa Fg to Espcnola, New Mexico, and is the connecting link between the capitol of the Territory apd the H. & Ft. G., and makes up orm of the threat lines to the north and cart. The report of the democratic state convention Rt Denver this week re veals to the public* that the demo crats of the state are crowded tfy their private business. It was found that pearly every roan named for a position had so much private bust ness that he could not possily accept the nomination, and the nominations made were unanimous. Mr, Patter son was the only one who accepted a nomination staing he offered him self a sacrifice for the good of the party, they all probably felt that way but did not say so. Here is the result of the democrat state convention, for Governor Thomas Patterson, Lieut Governor J. A. Porter, Treasurer A. G. Hen derson, Secretary of State \Y. R. Erhardt, Auditor L. Meyers, Attor ney General J. M. Abbott, Superin tendent of Public Instructions J. L. Lowe, Regents of the University F. A. Chavez, and C. Ambrook. For Justice of the Supreme Court long term M. 13. Gerry, short term A. J. Risng, for Congress Thomas Macon, for Presidential Electors J. M. S. Egan, C. J. Hughes ainl L. Horn. Tliere are many strange and vexing things in connection with politics, and especially is this so when in fair ness and right a location is entitled to a representation and then fait to get it. We were strongly reminded of this at the third judicial conven n at Pueblo last Monday, some months ago Pueblo said they wanted the juJge, and their choice was J. C. Elwell of that city who is the pres ent district attorney, a number of gentlemen of that city expressed a willingness to aid a Rent county man for district attorney. Mr. Elwell himself was as we had reason to be lieve a friend to any man Rent coun ty might put forward and would do everything he could for him. Mr. A. M. Nicholas of this city consented to become a candidate for district attorney on tbe statements of Pueblo gentlemen that he would have a part if not tbe whole delegation of that county, what was the result, Mr. Nicholas went to the convention en dorsed by a resolution passed by the republican county convention a few weeks ago, malting his nomination a request from Rent county as a rej*- rcsentative of the Arkansas Valley, the only one thing the valley has ever asked for, the morning of the convention the l’ucblo delegation stat*J that Mr. Nicholas w ould get a part of their delegation and Mr. Elwell thought the number would be from seven to ten, this was the un derstanding up to the time the con vention was called to order, there were three candidates for judge, Mr. Elwell received the nomination, the names of Mr. Nicholas and W. AY. Dunbar were placed before the con vention tor district attorney. Rent county cast seven votes, Custer elev en and Fremont fifteen for Mr. Nich olas, and one for Mr. Dunbar, this was something Pueblo county or Mr Elwell was not looking for and they saw Mr. Nicholas would be uomina | ted on the first ballot if they gave him more than one vote, so after L is Animas county gave Mr. Dunbar fourteen votes they gave him nine j teen and one for Nicholas, the vote stood the same for five ballots, when Pueblo county went back on all 1 promises and gave the one vote nec essary to Mr. Dunbar to nominate ; him. We have no fault to find with Mr. Dunbar his course and canvass as far as we know was honorable and legitimate, but we are satisfied now that Pueblo county never intended to any more than give our candidate a complimentary vote and then on the pretence he could not get the nomination leave him, but the strength he showed on the first bal lot, forced them to show' their hand, and of course he was defeated and the Arkansas Valley virtually told that they was not located in the right part of Colorado to receive anything more than a complimentary vote, and not that if it was dangerous. To Custer and Fremont counties we want to say the gallant manner in which yon stood by the Arkansas Valley will not be forgotten and when an oppoitonity presents itself as it surely will, wo will show onr appreciation.
