VOL. VII. SENATORS ARE TALKING. FACTS, ARGUMENTS, REASONS. JTO Danfer Chat the Repeal ltlll Will Be. come m Law for a While Yet.— House Preparing tor Dullness. Monday, September 4th. Senate. —Mr. Allen moved an adjourn ment out of respect to Labor Pay, but Mr. Voorhees objected, and the motion was de feated by a vote jf 41 to 8. A resolution was adopted making September 18 a holiday In Washington. It will be the centennial an niversary of the laying of the corner-stoue of the capitol. Mr. Allen offered a resolution calling upon the Secretary of the Treasury for Information as to whether ho had re deemed any silver certificates in silver, and If he had coined all the bullion in the treasury, as empowered by law. Mr. Kyle offered a frce-coiiiagc amendment to the repeal bill, which was «cferred to the Finance Commit tee. The Senate was addressed by Mr. Cul lom In favor of the repeal bnl. In favoring the repeal of the Sherman law he said: “1 “I am not a monometnlllat. Ido not believe In the disuse of cither of the two metals named iu the constitution, but the close com mercial relations which mark the advance of civilization makes international concur rence in the free and unlimited use of both metals as money morn desirable, if not abso lutely necessary. I favor the free use of sil ver, which cornea from international coinage upon a common basis or agreed ratio. Gold has no money function Inherent In itself, any more than has silver.” Mr. Coke of Texas then 6poke In favor of free coinage. After hii executive session Mr. Jones moved an adjournment, but it was de feated by. a vote of 19 to 31. At 9:50 the Sen ate resumed its legislative session, and Mr. PctTer’s amendment to the repeal bill, pro viding for free coinage, being tho pending question, was read preparatory fo Mr. Fellers addressing the Senate. He had uot finished Ills speech when the Senate adjourned. . Tuesday, September fftli. ’Senate. —Among bills Introduced was one ■by Mr. Feller to appropriate $28,000,000 for * national scientific college. Mr. Morgan, offered a concurrent resolution creating n joint select committee on llnance, consisting of seven senators and sevon representatives. This committee shall examine Into the llnan •clal and monetary condition of the govern ment and the people of the United States, with * view of revising the curreuoy laws und re monetisation of silver, Mr. Allen’s resolution' asking the secretary of the treasury If he bad redeemed any silver certificates In sliver was adopted. At the conclusion of the morning business Mr. Fe,fer took the floor and concluded the remarks commenced by him yesterday In sup port of his free coinage amendment to tho re peal bill. He was followed by Mr. Stewart who recited the events that led up to demonetization. Mr. Sherman, he said, had introduced a bill prepared by a clique In the treasury depart ment, headed by .John Jay Knox, professedly to revise und codify the mint laws, but which In reality omitted the standard dollnr from the list of oolua. After two days' debate the bill, whleh bad been reported by Mr. Shernum from the finance committee, was passed, Mr. Sherman, he said, voting In the negative. Mr. Sherman very well knew, said Mr. Stewart, before his name was reached in tho calling of the roll, that the bill would pas# by an over whelming majority. The history of the bill In the house of representatives was the same. After it was developed that the bill demonetiz ed silver Mr. Hooper of Massachusetts, iu ebarge of the bill, affected to abandon It. Bomo days afterwards. In the nbscnce of Re- Sresentatlve Potter of New York, who had Iscovered the fact that the bill demonetized silver, Mr. Hooper presented a substitute for the bill, which he falsely claimed contained none of the objectionable features of the orig inal bill. The suhstitltue was passed uuder the erroneous belief produced by Mr. Hoop er’s statement, that . ao substitute was devoid of the objectionable provisions of the original bill. The substitute an it came from the house contained the sixteenth section provision for a dollar of 884 grains over proilt. Morgan moved that the Senate go into exe cutive session and although the anti-silver men opposed the motion it carried by a vote 85 to 28 and the Senate afterwrads adjourned. Wednesday, Bept. oth. Senate. —Resolutions were reported from the committee on privileges and elections granting $2,500 each to John B. Allen, Wash ington; Lee Mantle, Montana, and A. C. Beckwith, Wyoming, for their time and ex pense in prosecuting their claims to seats In the Senate. The resolutions were referred to the committee on contingent expenses. Mr. Voorhees announced that he hnd de cided not to ask the Senate to change the hour of meeting to 11 o’clock. Mr. Voorhees stated that he would ask to have Mr. Mor gan’s resolution for a special committee to Investigate the financial condition of the country referred to the finance committee-. Mr. Morgan strongly opposed any such ac tion. He made a speech in which he said that be declined to recognize Mr. Sherman as the leader of the Democracy. The repeal bill was then taken up, by a vote of 37 to 21. Mr. Stewart resumed his address lu opposition to it. After a few moments Mr. Teller arose and asked for a call of the Senate. Fifty-nine senators appeared. When the presence of a quorum was developed, Mr. Teller tempor arily took the floor. He said that he dla not suggest tue absenco of a quorum for tho pur pose of delaying the business of the Senate, but because be thought tho question was great enough to justify them in Insisting that there be a quorum present while the bus iness of the Senate was transacted. He wanted the supporters of the bill to bear the arguments of the silver men. Mr. Stewart then resumed the floor. He rend newspaper articles and authorities on matters of finance, and when his voice slightly failed him, Mr. Allen of Nebraska and Mr. Mitchell of Oregon and the reading elerk were called to his assistance. The Senate adjourned be fore he bod finished. House. —The House completed tbs consid eration of the rules to-day, and they were adopted with only two important changes from the form in which thoy came from the committee. The first change placed the Com mittees on Banking and Currency and Coin age, Weights and Measures on the same foot ing with the Ways and Means and Appropria tions committees, clothing them with power to report at any time. The second restores the size of the quorum In the committee of the whole to the old number, a majority of the House. The Rules committee made a complete surrender on tho latter proposition, and General Catchlngs’ announcement this morning of the fact that the committee had decided to retreat from Its position In favor of reducing the size of the quorum to 100 members, gave rise to the most entertuluing debate of the day. It was participated In by the leaders on both sides. The Republicans led by Mr. Reed urged the propriety of adopt ing the rules of the Fifty-first Congress, but the Democrats denounced these rules sis ar bitrary and voted them down by a vote 65 to 148. The House then adjourned until Satur day. Thursday, Sept. 7th. Senate.—When the Senate convened this morning, Mr. Wolcott (Republican, Colorado) presented a petition, wnich be said was signed by every business man of Durango, Colorado, graying for the repeal of the McKinley law. ,e said the petition was on the blank form sent out by the banks for the repeal of the Siierman purchasing law. He said In this case the petitioners had erased “ purchasing clause of the Bberman act” and instead the “Mc- Kinley bill.” This statement caused laugli- among Republicans. ♦Mr. Wolcott also submitted a resolution fllfcctlng the secretary of the treasury to In form the Benate what has been paid ns boun ties on maple sugar under the law of October 14. 1890, since the passage of the act, showing • lie states In which the payments have been I side. Adopted. I . he repeal bill waß taken up and Mr. if art gave way to Mr. Walthall of Mississippi, who addressed the Senate. He favored the passage of the repeal bul if the declarations 1 of policy in the bill were embodied In ttie C.in of a binding act-. lift wanted sll- v °r restored to the position It occupied before the act of tSi'3 Watt passed. Mr, Stew,- art resumed, and rend articles froth the New York papers whleh ly* criticised. Referring to President Cleveland, Mr. Stewart said it was ■& and thing for the Ameri can people lhat In his early life and riper manhood, be had not been surrounded, as Andrew Jackson had been, by the producing i classes, by the laborlngmeu und the farmers, j that he might sympathize with them, Mr. : Cleveland w as reared lu the city (Ills office was lu the Mills building, N'cwYork,the very center in the United Statbs.of European influence. He i sympathised with his surroundings, and his I surroundings were uufortunato for the j American people. Mr. Cleveland’s ’organs, | said Mr. Stewart, constantly praised him for ; the u»e of federal pAttonage to secure the de- • struction of all legislation that pointed to j silver. Mr. Stewart said there were several other i brunches of the subject of which he would ■ treat hereafter (laughter), but that-,he would i now close for the present. As a Matter of j fact Mr. Stewart has in his desk six more ! speeches, which will consume at least two • days each, and be is ready, whenever the “lull” about which Mr. Voqrhceh spoke the other day conics,to jump Ir.tb the breech. Dur ingthe day the roil was culled several times. Friday, Ncqit. Kill. BeKatb.—At 12:45 the repeal bill was taken up und Mr. Faulkner (Democrat, West Vir ginia) uddressed tho Senate. Mr. Faulkner announced his intention to vote for the re peal bill, blit In doing eo expressed hla belief In silver as a money metal and declared bis intention of bringing in an amendment to the present bill providing for the. coinage of $3,000,000 of silver per month until there was $800,000,000 coined. Mr. Turplo (Democrat, Indiana) said the i&uu licrc was uot whether the United Sthtcs should further coin and use silver as money, but the question was whether the purchase of 6ilvcr for coinage purposes should he con tinued. The act of ptuchuso Itself was a dis crimination against silver, and was a vice In the scheme. It placed upon silver the braud of bondage. It was unsound, dishonest money, degraded by law. Mr. Jones (Democrat, Arkansas) said he did not believe the present condition of the j country was brought about by the Sherman j act. On the contrary, the limited coinage of sliver had acted ns a measure of relief In the flnanclnl stringency. That the stringency was caused by the wealthy few, and it re mained to be seen whether the representa tives of 65,009,000 free people would submit to their Insolent domination. It was now 3:39 o’clock and Mr. Voorhees said he would not usk an unrcasanable session but he thought 3:80 an unreasonable bour to adjourn. If there were no senators who de sired to speak, he would have to n>k a vote. Mr.'Haleof Main.- urged Mr. Voorhees to press tho matter to a vote as soon a3 possible. It was appareut Senator Voorhees had trot received the remarks of Mr. Hale in good feeling. He rose and. In thunderous tones, said: "The zeal of the senator from Maine for the repeal of the Shertnan act and Ills desire to assist the senator from Indiana Is deeply appreciated. It would be more so, however, if In these six weeks he had been In his scat more than one week. 1 desire to say to him and to all concerned that the senator from Indiana expects to discharge his duly as he secs it, and not according to the desires of the senator from Maine.” The colloquy between the two continued several minutes. Senator Dußols (Republican, Idaho) said that Mr. Hale did not represent all the Re publicans. It seemed difficult for Mr. Hale to realize the fact that the Republicans had lost control of the Senate. The Senate then adlourned after Mr. Teller had announced that he would Bpcak to-mor row. Saturday, Sept. 9th. Senate. —Several changes In committee as signments were made. Mr. Feller’s resolu tion to Investigate the New York banks was taken up and discussed by Mr. FclTcr. No : action was taken upon It and the repeal com- , log up Mr. Teller addressed the Senate upon it. j Mr. Teller complained of the attempts of the ‘ Eastern press to intimidate West v.i Senators and shut off debate. Silver senators were asked i not to vote because their constitueuts were ir.- i terested In silver, but ho had never heard a | senator from a manufacturing state refuse to i vote on the tariff question. Referring to the ; published statement that the President had ! sent congratulations to Mr. Wlleon on the passage through the House of the repeal bill Mr. Teller declared It Impossible that Mr. Cleveland had been guilty of so gross a breach of public dignity. Mr Teller said he repeated the challenge made In a recent speech for anybody to show that the Sherman law was responsible In any degree for the present con dition or the conditions which existed wbcu Congress assembled. The act, said tbc senior senator from Colorado, had been made the senpegoat. No senator had declared that, in his judgment, the present deplorable condi tion was caused by the Sherman act. It was pusillanimous to yield to public clamor, got ten up by tho interested parties, and repeal an act that senators admitted had nothing to | do with bringing about the condition. The prosperity of the country during 1890, ' 1891 and 1802 and until a recent time, was an absolute refutation of thu charge that the act had brought disaster to business enterprise In this country. The present distress was not • confined to the United States. It has been ! felt In Great Britain, Germany and other countries. Before Mr. Teller had concluded ; tho Senate adjourned. House. —A joint resolution providing for the erection of a storage building for the use of the Senate, at a cost of $7,500, was passed; but here business, by unanimous consent, was stopped, cutting off a resolution by Mr. Mleklejobn of Nebraska, cuffing for Informa tion as to the administration of the pension i law of 1890 and the recent suspension order j of Commissioner Lnolircn. Mr. Fayutcr of Kentucky made a report per- ; □sitting Representative Belknap of the Filth Michigan district to make a contest for the 6eat held by Mr. Richardson and giving him sixty days In which to lake testimony. i The House then udjourued until Monday to await the report of the committee on account, assigning clerks to committees. 'Until provis- j lon for clerks Is made, the committees of the j House are unable to proceed with their work, j Mr. Vest says that be will not vote for re peal, but that he will not filibuster against the hill. The first thing that the Democrats In the House will do, will be to pass a bill repealing the laws providing for supervisors of federal elections. Tho ways and means committee of the House Is now engaged In hearing arguments from Importers, manufacturers and others as lo what the tariff on various articles should be. • Office-seekers are pouring into Washington Just now from every part of the country. Just why they should luvade the capital at this particular tlmo is a matter liard’to ex plain. The silver men In tho Senate Tuesday sprung a surprise on the repeal forces In the declaration of Mr. Stewart that hereafter a , quorum of the Senate would have to be pres ent wben senators spoke on the silver ques- , tlon. If the opponents of the repeal luslst upon a quorum being present at all times it i will be a new move, and may seriously inter- i fere with the programme of the friends of re- ; peal. The sliver senators arc now in the midst of the struggle, no stone will be left unturned and the debate will be continuous and ex haustive. The men from the West have said the Sherman law had nothing to do with the existing depression, and that statement Is supported by the fact that business is pick ing up and trade is reviving The great fear of the administration Is thnt business will have thoroughly recovered from the blow the bankers have dealt It, before they can get the bill repealed, and that their only argument, false and Illogical as It is, will fall to the ground, Its only prop buvlng been knocked from under it. ROCKY FORD, COLORADO, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 1893. GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC. Orsit Throng «r War Veterans Outlisr at Indianapolis to Attend the Encampment. The encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic began at Indianapolis on the 4th. The city had made great preparations for tho event and every effort was made to render the visit of the old soldiers a pleasant one. Great crowds of them were In attendance from all parts of the country. Receptions and re unions were the order of the day, and electrio Illuminations were given for their entertain ment. The business of the encampment be gan on the '6tb, In Tomlinson Hall which waa magnificently decorated with flowers and pa triotic designs. Governor Matthews, In be half of the state, welcomed the veterans and Mayor Sullivan performed a like service In be half of the city, while Colonel Eli Lilly, chair man of the Executive Committee, added a few Words. Commauder-in-Chicf Welssert made the response in behalf of the Grand Army of the Republic and the encampment then went into executive session to hear reports of the officers. One of the most Important roports made was that of the special committee ou legisla tion. The purpose of the appointment of the committee was to do something to secure the enforcement of the general laws, almost to tally disregarded for many years, the flrst providing those discharged from service by reason of wounds or sickness lucurred in the line of duty should have a preference in ap pointment to publlo office and tho other one recommending tlioso honorably discharged by reason of expiration of their terms of service in navy or army, or the close of the war, to the business men and firms of the country for lucrative employment. An effeot will be made to have stronger laws passed. After the reading of the various reports was completed at 4:30 o’clock, and a half hour’s routine work disposed of, Fast Com mander-In-Chief Merrill arose and nominated j Captain J. G. B. Adams of Massachusetts as commander-in-chlef to succeed Commander Welssert of Wisconsin. Immediately there was a pandemonium, and cries of “Adams, Adams,” resounded through the great ball. General Hurst of Ohio withdrew, and Adams was chosen by acclamation. Ivan E. Walker of Indianapolis was elected senior vice commander, and J. C. Bigger of Texas was elected junior vice commander without opposition. The convention, in the midst of the great excitement, adjourned until 10:80 o’clock to morrow morning.

He was promoted to captain for bis valor. He participated In every battle of the army of the Potomac, in which his regiment was en gaged.

Fleming was chosen as a member of ! the national counoll of administration from ; Colorado. The committee on pensions rendered a re port In which the present manner of admin istering the pension bureau was denounced. It was resolved, “That os the commissioner of pensions by his recent withdrawal of the obnoxious rulings which have been so gener ally condemned has virtually acknowledged the incorrectness of such rulings, wo deem it his further duty to at once restore to the rolls the thousands of pensioners now standing il legally suspended.” The encampment Instructed the com mander-ln-chlef to carry the question of the legality of suspension of pensions up to the Supremo Court of the United States. ! The resolution asking that veterans be : given preference In publlo service was adopt ed, as was also the memorial asking the Grand Army to hold services on Washing ton’s birthday.

The Regular Republicans Denounced fer Straddling on the Temperance Question. The Prohibition Republicans of lowa held a convention at Des Moines on the sth with about 200 delegates In attendance. The temporary obalrman, Dr. Emery Miller, In his address said if Governor Boles was elect ed it would be the result of the work of the regular Republlcau convention, not thle one. Rev. Wells wae made permanent chair man. The platform, reported and adopted after a lengthy discussion, speaks bitterly of the action of the recent Republican convention In repudiating prohibition, and says that It had become necessary, in order that the elec tors of the state may not be misrepresented, they should nominate a candidate for Gov ernor whose views and sentiments are in ac cord with the sentiments of the people. The only purpose of making the nomination Is to repudiate, in the most emphatic manner, the doctrine of local option or license or any other device by which the saloon may gain a legalized existence in lowa. Tho platform further declares that the question of maintaining and enforcing tbs prohibition law Is the practical and para mount issue of the coming campaign, and recommends to the Prohibitionists of all par ties to secure by every proper means tho election to the next General Assembly of such candidates as may without question he relied upon to maintain and enforce the present prohibition law, or who will favor such legislation us will make prohibition effeotlvc.

Yhe House of Lords Will Have None «*f It. Tim Vote 41 to 410. The home rule bill was defeated In the nouse of Lords Friday night by a vote of 41 to 419. 1 The House of Lords presented a brilllahf and almost unprecedented spectacle when at 10 p. in. Lord Salisbury rose to deliver the last speech In opposition to the home rule bill. Tho house was filled lu every part with people anxious to hear the decision of tho Lords upon the measure which had been so long debated In and out of Parliament. Not only was the House Itself filled with peers, but all corridors and approaches thereto were packed with peo ple “eager to be In at the death.” Prominent among the crowd were tbc Rt.- Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, *hc Rt.-Hon. Ar thur James Balfour, late chief secretary for Ireland, and n host of minor lights of the British political world. The United States minister, Thomas F. Bay ard, was also present and received much flat tering attention from many of the prominent parliamentarians present. Tho side galleries were filled with duchesses and countesses, their daughters nnd other ladles lucky enough to obtain admission. The peers wero all lu evening dress and fairly blazing with dia monds nnd Jewels. In the diplomatic gallery could be noticed the German, Austrian and Turkish embassadors. The ctfergy of Great Britian were well re presented, no less than seventy bishops, In cluding the primate of all England, the Arch bishop of Canterbury, awaiting tho decision. After Lord Salisbury hnd denounced the bill with his customary energy, he was replied to by the Earl of Kimberly, who spoke brief ly. The vote was then taken and resulted 41 for and 419 against the measure. An analysis of the vote shows that twenty live bishops and both archbishops, who were present at tbe decision, all voted with the ma jority. Th«* vote was the lurgest ever record ed In the House of Lords. In tbe street an Immense crowd awaited the announcement of the result of tho decision. A strong detachment of police was on hand. When the result tl nally rerched tho people, It was received with vociferous cheering, wliioh had here and there mingled with It cries of disapproval. Tho Catholic Congress. The great Catholic Congress opened at the World's Fair on the 4tb. It waa a brilliant scene when Cardinal Gibbons, attired in kls scarlet robes, entered with Secretary Onahan, and followed by Archbishops Feehan of Chicago and Ryan of Philadelphia, In full purple. Just back of them, In pluin civilian attire, was Archbishop Ireland, his strong fentures easily noticeable In a group of other distinguished prelates, each of whom, however, except him, wore some mark of ecclesiastical dignity. After addresses of welcome by Archbishop Feehan, President Bonner, of tho World’s Congress Auxiliary, and Hon. Thomas B. Bryan, who was the special envoy of the United States government and World’s Fair to Pope Leo In behalf of the exposition, Car dinal Gibbons made the opening address to the Congress. He urged charity in discuss ion, nnd took occasion to laud Mr. Gladstone. A mossage from Pope Leo was read by Car dinal Gibbons giving his blessing to tho Congress, praying the Almighty to assist and Illume it, and enrich with tbe treasures of bis choicest gift* Its deliberations and con clusions. . , . Considerable significance was attached by many to the choice of a temporary chairman. Tbe selection, as expected, fell upon Judge Morgan J. O’Brien, of tho New York Su preme Court, n delegate from Archbishop Corrigan’s territory. Addresses on special topics chiefly occupied the remainder of the day, the flrst being by Edgar H. (lans of Baltimore, “The Relations of the Catholic Church to the Social, Civil aud Political Institutions.” Other addresses were by Father Elliott, of the Paulist order ; Walter G. Smith of Philadelphia, Judge Mar tin E. Morris of Washington, D. C., and Richard Clarke of New York, Mary J. Ona han, of Chicago, and George Parsons Lath rop. _ A New Cleveland Baby. President Cleveland la the father of another child. It is a girl and first saw light at high noon Saturday. Mrs. Cleveland passed through the ordeal wonderfully well. The event had been hourly expected for two or three days and Dr. Bryant of New York, the Cleveland’s family physician, had been In at tendance night and day. Aa soon as tbe news that Baby Ruth had a sister reached the de partment there was a flutter of excitement and messages of congratulation were sent to the President and Mrs. Cleveland. The child weighed about ten pounds. It was over an hour after the baby was born before anyone outside the White House was aware of the fact. Tbe news was bulletined at tbe telegraph of tlce.tbe capitol,the,departments and tbejproml nent hotels, and was almost the sole theme of conversation during the remainder of the af ternoon. Everywhere disappointment was manifested that the baby was not a boy. Though the press has Intimated at times that Mrs. Cleveland would become a mother a second time, the birth of the baby was a surprise as Mrs. Cleveland w«b out driving Friday evening. She bowed frequently to passing friends and acquaintances and ap- I peared to he In excellent health and spirits. This is the first time that a child of a presi dent has been horn at the White House. Want Another Cromwell. As a result of the defeat of the home rule hill In the House of Lords, the Radical news papers generally call s for the abolition of tbe House of Lords. The Star, for Instance, says: “It Is the duly of every Democrat lo prepare to alay the Lords. Let us abandon talk and do some thing. Strike, Gladstone, and the people will hall you as another Cromwell.” Smokln,' out •• Sooners." Prairie fires have been set In the Cherokee Strip by the United Slates troops who are charged with keeping the strip free of intrud ing “ sooners.” Many sooner* had succeeded in biding In clumps of bushes and in hollows In the prairie, ami It was for tho purpose of dislodging them that the fires were started. The result of these Arcs was the capture by the troops of a number of sooners, whose names, places of residence, etc., were taken for the information of the officers In charge of tho registering booths. When these per sons apply for certificates of registry they will find that their names nrc on the blacklist and that they cannot get certificates, without which they cannot file on a claim. The registering booths are about completed and will be open for business September 11. Between that date and the day of opening It Is believed that 10,000 persons will take out certificates at these booths declaring tnelr In tentions to claim a homestead In the Strip and to become settlers. The opening of two more Indian reaerva j tions Is under consideration at the Interior : department. The conditions of the opening. I as at present contemplated, are practically I the same as those under which the Cherokee | Strip will be opened. The opening of the • Klckapoo reservation, in Indian Territory, I lias already been decided upon and allotment* J nre now being made. The president Is ex pected to isnue in a short tune the proclama tion opening this land to settlement. I The uext reservation to be opened. It la bo -1 llcved. Is the Uncompbagrc and Uintah Uteln ! Utah. In the latter valuable minerals are : abundant, while each comprises rich farming land. The Colville reservation In Waabtng- J ton state will probably be opened to settle : ment early next year. This reservation con tains about 8.000,000 acres, about half the size I of the Cherokee outlet. NO. 16 BOLD BANK ROBBERY AT DELTA. CASHIER A. T. BLACHLY KILLED. After the Robber* N«ure SI,OOO, Two of Them Are Shot to Death by W. K. Mmpson, a Rf*»- ehant. Delta was the accne of a terrible tragedy on the 7th as the result of a darlrtg attempt to rob the Farmers’ and Merchants’ Bane. About 10 o’clock In the morning threo men rode up to the rear of the bank and dis mounted. Ono man was left holding the horses while the other iwo entered the bank by the front door. Only the cashier and as sistant cashier. Mr. A. T. Blacbly and Mr. IL 11. Wolbert, were In the bank. Both thtf cashier and assistant cashier went to the front to wait on the men when they were covered by revolver* and told to throw up their hand*. Mr. Blachly yelled loudly once and was told If he repeated It ho Would be shot. Mr. Blachly yelled the second time, when the robber covering him shot, tho ball entering Mf. Dlncbly’s neck on the right aide, Just under the ear and coming out at the top of the bead. The robbers climbed over the partition and seized what money they could find on tho deak and made a dash for liberty through the back door of the bank. While tho robbero were climbing over the partition Mr. Wol bert got hold of his gun, but before he could use It he wna again covered by the robber* and ordered to throw the gun aw it,* which he did. On getting out of the bank the robbers ran for their horses and mounting started on tho dead run down the alley toward the Gunnl non river. When the shot wa* fired that killed Mr. Blachly, the cry was raised on tlui street* that there waa a bold-up going on,and there wa* a general hunt for guns. Mr. W Kay Simpson, a hardware mer* chant, just across the street from the bank/ got hold of hi* 44 Sharp’* rifle and started up Third street toward the alley and just got to tho corner of Third and Main street# as the robbers crossed tho street half a block away. He took a shot at ono of the robbers and hit him In the head, knocking tho entire top of bis head off. Mr. Simpson then ran to the alley and shot at the robber* twice, killing a horse and rider both, hitting the mau in tho head. Tho horse and man, when killed, were over a block away from Mr. Simpson. The third robber turned across lot* to the Gunul •on river, which he crossed aud started on the road to Grand Junction. About flfteon minutes after tide occurred a strong posse, well armed and mounted,started In pursuit of tho third man and, from ac counts brought In by ranchmen living down tbe river, they were In close pursuit, hut as he lu well mounted there is not much hope of their overtaking him. The robbery was evidently planned some time ago, a* the gang who did It have been lying around here for four or flvo day*. No ono knows anything about them, only that they put up at tho best hotels while here, two of them registering under the names of James U. Bradley and Clarence Bradley. These two men were the ones shot, and are evidently brothers, and were the ones who did the rob bing and shooting. About SI,OOO was taken by the robbers and SBOO or S9OO was recovered from their dead bodies and where they had dropped It In their flight. The two dead robbers are at the undertak ing establishment of Gale Brother# and the oldest one has been Identified by parties who lived In Telluridc at the time aa one of the gang who held up the bank In that town four yenrs ago. The horse ridden bv Clarence Bradley and shot during the melee, baa been Identified aa one of tbe boraes ridden by the robbers In Telluride. No papers were found on the bodies that will lead to their Identification. A reward of SSOO baa been offered for the capture of tbe third robber. Cashier Blachly was an old citizen of the Western Slope. He was 40 years old and leaves a wife and seven children. RUNAWAY CAR AT GOLDEN. Wreckage Piled Up on One of tbe Main Thoroughfares. Wednesday morning, shortly after 9 o’clock, a car loaded with about thirty-five tons of clay broke away from a Lakewood engine at Bapp’s Grove. The grade from that station to the station In Golden Is quite steep, and the car dashed down It with fear ful rapidity. At the Intersection of Third and Jackson streets the track curvea ao rap idly that cars are frequently derailed there. On the main track at this curve stood two passenger cars filled with passengers bound for Denver. People who beheld the runaway car turned faint as they saw It apparently dashing Into these cars, but the switch above them happened to be open and It flew rapidly around the curve within a few feet of the frightened passengers, careening over In a threatening manner and spilling some of Its content# along the track. A short distance ahead were located a box car and two heavy refrigerator cars. These It dashed Into with such force as to drive them on over the track, through tbe sidewalk at It* terminus and directly across Washing ton avenue, completely blocking that thor oughfare for tbe day. Several of the car* were badiy shattered. The damages to the railroad company will probably not fall short of SI,OOO. That con siderable loss of life did not result la almost miraculous.
