There was very little business submitted for consid eration by the clerk and everything was disposed of by 9 o'clock and an adjournment taken shortly thereafter. A communication was read from J. B. Flaherty of Cripple Creek, superin tendent of tbe Canon City & Cripple Creek Railroad company, complaining of what he denominated as “the ex cessive rates charged the company for supplying Its locomotives with water at •this place.** Mr. Flaherty says tbe company is required to pay thirty-five dollars a month for water here for filling the tanka of two or three en gines a day. which is the same price the company formerly paid when it used four or five times the quantity It uses at present, and he asks that a reduction be made If possible to cor respond to Its decreased consumption. The matter wss referred to the water committee with instructions to inves tigate the complaint and report at a subsequent meeting of the council. An application was made by Mr*. Margaret Alexander for a reduction in the water rates assessed against tbe premises occupied by her on Greenwood avenue, but after s discus sion of ths petition It was decided by the council to disallow It on the ground that the existing schedule could not in any case be changed without prejudice or discrimination being shown. The monthly reports of the officers were read and adopted. Tbe clty clerk’s report shows that there was collected In tbe general fund for th# month ending November 30 from all source* the aum of 13.C24.10 nnd to the water fund $1.226.76. Tbe city treasurer’s report shows that there was on December 1 a cash balance of $2,067.29 In the water fund; 11.5K.3t In the general fund: $633.92 In the sewer fund; $1,027.21 in the slaking fund In sidewalk district number on*;; SRS7 03 In sidewalk district number two; $331.14 In sidewalk district num ber three; $371.71 In sidewalk district number four and an overdraft of $709.49* in sidewalk district number five.

In that letter I also stated that T did not know so far in advance, my term not expiring until March 3, 1913, whether I should desire re election or not; that my decision would be made on considerations wholly personal and that should I decide not to be a candidate I would announce the fact in ample time. Since then I have given this mat ter careful thought, and I now tfieh to announce through you as state chairman, to the Republicans of Col orado. that I shall not seek re-elec tion as United States senator from Colorado. In justice to myself and to my f3l - republicans of Colorado, I feel that, in making this announcement, 1 should state that I hare come to this decision solely because I know that my own interests and those of my family require me to give to my business affairs the personal atten tion and eare they have Wholly lack ed during my service In the senate, and that I cannot defer attention to THE PREMIUM LIST Foftssath Ams»l Fruit Exhibit of Tba Fremont Coonty BotttHSandSMMfaatDtauCmtßinaS c Canos City.

(Vmrnmi mt a) ALEXANDER ELECTED DY OVER 30,000 GOOD GOVERNMENT CANDIDATE DEFEATED SOCIALIST AT LOS ANGELES f ________ (By United Press.) Los Angeles, Dec. 6. —Complete re turns from all but about twenty pre cincts of the city in yesterday’s elec tion give George Alexander, the Good Government candidate, a plurality cf nearly thirty thousand over Job Har rfman, the Socialist candidate. The indications are that when the full re turns are in, Alexander’s plurality will be nearer forty thousand than It will be thirty thousand. Evidently two-thirds of the women supported Alexander. The Socialists concede Alexander's plurality will be close to thirty thousand. An ordinance which would make the city the driest place in the coun try was defeated by three to one. NOW IS THE TIME TO DO YOUR CHRISTMASS SHOPPING With Christmas but little more than two weeks away those who have holiday purchases to make shouhl •minimise the worry to the occasion by doing their shopping early. A good many people are doing this and should be congratulated on their thoughtfulness and wisdom. The long llat of relatives and friends for whom gifts are to be secured are Is. perhaps, already made out and laid away to receive attention later. There is this one and that one to be provided for and the task of procur ing the moat suitable present la by no means easy to the average man or woman. The matter la greatly simplified by buying one or two gifts at a time and laying them away, so that when Christmas arrives you will have nothing to think about, but can enter into the joys of the occasion without that feeling of weariness experienced by those that leave ev erything until the last moment By making your Christmas pur chased calmly and deliberately before the rush of shopping begins yon will avoid the danger of forgetting some friend you had intended to remem ber with some little souvenir of the ] season, and, without that mnch more ' annoying sensation that you **Jost J can’t find what you want” for the person overlooked till the eleventh hour. By buying early the most ex acting shopper can find the very ar ticle desired for sister or brother.! mother or father, son or daughter, or this or that friend, and can bar gain for It leisurely. Christmas will soon be here and the shopper. If he has not already begun to make his purchases, should prepare for It at* once. The merchant will appreciate his thoughtfulness, and so will his clerks. Burly buying lightens the bur dens of all connected with It. Canon City people can get better values for their money by trading with the local merchants than by going to Pueblo. Colorado Springs or Denver and the patriotic of the community will 'not go away to spend their money.
