ATTEMPT TO FORM WILSON CLUB IN COLORADO FAILS The attempt made in Denver on Thursday night to organize a perma nent Woodrow Wilson club In Colo rado failed through lack of Interest on the part of Democrats In the mat ter. Ex-Gov. Thomas called a meet ing to be held at the Albany hotel at £ o>clock, but only about twenty per sons, none of whom represented the state outsider the city of Denver, were present. Governor Thomas realized the uselessness of organizing a club under such conditions and moved that an adjournment bo taken until No vember 15, and this motion prevailed. A number of persons delivered wh it might be termed consoling messages on account of the recent election re sults in New Jersey. George Hosmer and George Creel both reported th it they had been in New Jersey' during the campaign and that while there they learned that the machine was mgafnsf Wilson. The governor’s mess enger, who- happened to be present, suggested that no wonder Wilson was •defeated with Hosmer and Creel '.n the state.

THURSDAY, MV EMBER M, toff w CLIPPTED SECOND OFF RECORD TOM MIX ROPED AND TIED WILD Tom Mix, who came to Canon City a lew months ago from Oklahoma to assist In giving exhibitions ot a "wild west” character for reproduction In moving pictures by the Selig Rol.v acope company of Chicago, on Friday roped and tied a wild, four-year-old steer In the Sand Creek bottoms, around Soda Point, in sixteen seconds, breaking the world’s record for such an achievement by a fall second. The feat was witnessed by a number of gentlemen and halt a dosen watches were held on Itr. Mix during the per formance and there can be no doubt about the time required by him to do the work, it was a marvelous accom plishment and was heartily applauded by those who tew It. Another “stunt’’ done by Mr. Mix at the show grounds on Friday was the ‘‘bulldoggtng’’ ot a large steer in something like twelve seconds, which, perhaps. In celerity bas has never been equalled In Colorado. “Bulldc.?* glng" a steer by a cowboy consists in lamping on tbe back of the animal, grasping Its horns In bis hands and throwing It to the ground by twisting tbe neck and bolding It there In a helpless condition. In the instance ■- luded to Mr. Mix, was driven In an sn tomoblle at a high rate ot speed t > within a few feet of the steer selected for the experiment when he leaped from the machine to the back of the animal and threw It to tbe ground In the manner described. The whole thing was done so quickly as to as tonish spectators. Both of the per formances were photographed and will be shown In motion pictures throughout the country durir.- the coarse of the coming winter. 1 Man j of the sports "pulledv>H" by Mr. Mix and his associates here for photographic reproduction are hazard ous In the extrdhe and reoulra-a de gree of skill that Is truly marvelous HADSCRABBLE DIRECTORS PLEASED WITH WORK Florence, Nov. ll.—The director* M the Hardscrabble Irrigation district held a meeting at the office of the district at Wetraore yesterday after-, noon which was attended by a large number of land owners.
