We regret to note the attitude of some of our contemporaries regarding the acts Of the Uninted Stater Secretary of State through which he has aroused the ire of j Great Britain. The Associated Press retains at Wash- J ington the liest news editors it can find, ' and as a great news organization is not ! given to prejudice or partisanship. This agency tells the world that the head of the United States Cabinet is in his dotage. If os a result of the impnired condition of John Sherman's mind, he who was for nearly three decades a leader of the great national party in Congress, has been guilty of a violation of the ethics of di ploinacy and thus gained the ire of British statesmen we cannot conceive how a patriotic citizen can be moved by uny other emotion than regret that our country through any political necessity should suffer the humiliation of having at the head of the diplomatic branch, a man whose intellect is clouded. Too many American journalists l>elieve the displeasure of England should be courted in all matters at all times, on the same principle of the delegate to a convention a few years ago, who, upon entering the hall somewhat late, found a measure being warmly debated; jump ing upon a chair he shouted “If Waite is against it I am for it.” There' are times and topics that lead newspaper men to allow prejudice rather than intelligence to direct their pen. If this government has offered England uncalled for offense then an apology is due. The “Mexico” was “The ship that nev er returned” though her passengers all came into port safely. The closing of the Inez is a pretty strong object lesson on the effect of the market on silver mines. If one Europoan commission can have such an effect on the silver let us hope . €lie juuior Senator will not ask for a sec ond. This i 4 Carnival week at Colorado Springs, and Little London is in holiday attire, entertaing several hundred visi tors. Whatever may be the outcome of the fight against the federal courts, the ( Kansas officials are getting their pictures in the papers. The State University, at Boulder, will in all probability make a new record of attendance the coming school year, sur- 1 passing all former years. Little^lsaac“Vader vat means dot giAt stantardt?” Old Man Mosc:—“Mine son Isaac, dot fneaa ten per cendt a mond.” All the' flies in Crystal assembled in a mass meeting aronund the Lancb paste bucket, one day this week, aud by a rising vote adopted the following resolu tions:— m il' Woyler’s deadly trocha has been moved by the Cubans into Havana province, and at any time the capital city may bo the scene of the last battle for freedom M the “pride of the Antilles.” AMONG THE MINES. Float Picked Up Around the Crystal District and Echoes From the riany Mines. A patent survey of the Diadcmn, on Sheep Mountain was mnde this week. It is reported that some good strikes have been made in the south part of the ' county near the Saguache line. J There has not been so much activity in the vicinity of Scofield, Stringtown and Elko for five years as at present. C. S. Attix is taking out nice ore and ‘ a good deal of it from his mine near Elko on which a good strike was reported last week. The ore wbicn Wm. Boucher has been shipping is from tlie* Youngville, on tl.e east side of Treasure Mountain. It was good ore. From over on Yule Creek, east of Whifehouse, come reports of premising prospects - . That section has not boon prospected to any extent. Frank Dempkc was dowh from White house Tuesday and reports work pro gressing rapidly on numerous mines up there and some shipping. Squire Burke’s State of Nevada mine on the north side of Sheep Mountain is said to lie the prettiest mine in this sec tion, from an engineering standpoint. Wm. Boucher has a pile of good ore on the dump at the Last Chance to which more is being added daily. He lias not yet made a shipment from this mine. Chicago capitalists are figuring on the erection of a smelter iu Galena park above Scofield and have had an expert examining the district and securing samples of the ores. Tuesday the In.ez closed down, pend ing a settlement of the financial question. The management did not feel justified in continuing operations under the present condition of the silver market. In the Belle of Titusville the mineral is widening as the shaft goes deeper. The ore is now found in a vein of pink spar. Considerable water is coming in which is being handled by the new pump. Dr. Evans and nephew. N. Evans are doing assessment work on the “Gay” a Sheep Mountain prospect on the contact below and east of the Black Queen. It is owned by Mrs. G. E. Frohn of Grand Junction. The Jack trains from the Lead King continue with the regularity of a clock carrying about seven tons of ore down the canon every morning. This output could be doubled if the management de sire, the mineral in the drift at the fifty foot level having widened considerable. The Scofield concentrating mill has begun running day and night, and the proprietors, Straub A Bell, desire to run at its full capacity of fifteen ton3 a day. Nearly a thousand tons of the ore on the dump at the Leadville has been bought and is being brought to the mill by a train of fifty jacks making two trips daily. OUR SALTED PLACER. Washed From the Rich Deposits on The Lance Exchange Table. Last Saturday District Attorney Rohde caused the arrest of Frank Purlin for shooting sage chickens unlawfully. He \ was brought to Gunnison and taken be fore Justice Schmitz, who set the trial for tomorrow at ten o’clock. Defendant was allowed to go at liberty on his ow n recognizance. —Gunnison Tribune. Now that Alaska is attracting so much attention from all over the world, each mining state and county in the United States is coming forward with its liack 1 ers to prove that Alaska “isn’t in it” as 1 compared with what their camp can 'show'. Never mind, gentlemen, “ just saw j w ood at home” and the people will come | back to you. Mining Industry. *** A friend yesterday, speaking of Sena- j tor Teller’s w'ords predicting the final 1 triumph of bimetalism, shook his head, j and expressed the belief that silver had I practically been killed as money’. We believe that many people who are good . silver men take that view. They may be 1 right, for when a thing or principle is I fought by that power which is stronger I than any Government in Europe, it has j indeed a hard battle. But we must not forget that while our gold friends are rejoicing greatly in this country, the ar- 1 guments of bimetalists have all the more : weight across the sea, for our present | prosperity has its origin and force in the I misfortunes of the world outside. The producers, the world around, except in ; our country, are w'orkiug for nothing, and ours can only trace their present prosperity to a fa nine. -Salt Luke Tri- I lot n<i. CRYSTAL, GUNNISON COUNTY, COLORADO, AUGUST ao, 1897. Little Sweetheart. Little Sweetheart! I know loves me, For she often has said so Aud nice things I choose to whisper Set her pretty cheeks aglow. Though she oft’ condescends to smile, Upon castles for her bliss And I, quite happy all the while, Have not yet a single kiss! * * * My beloved Little Sweetheart, May sorrows ne’er contrive To sunder thy lores apart; Little Sweetheart, aged five. Frank I. White. Day’s Dawn In Crystal. If one would see the sunrise charm One must awake in the stilly hour, Before the cock's morning alarm Disturbs the calm of Morpheus power. Old Sol long lights ihe prairie p*lain ’Ere on Crystal falls morning light Tinting the tow ring mountain main While in vales linger shades of night. Then aro touched warm emot ions. Am on Whitehouse’ snow flocked crest Fall billows, as from an ocean, Of days light from out nature’s breast. Down o’er forests a Hood of light Sweeps the low hanging clouds away And mists dispelled by rays bright Are lost to view and it is day. Frank I. White. Over Aspen Trail. V Geo. C. Eaton came from Aspen to Crystal, yesterday afternoon, in six hours and ten minutes. This is believed to be the fastest time yet made between the two points over the West Maroon trail. Since the wireless telegraph is an ac credited success some journalist wants hi know if we can have wireles* j olitics. No, the millenium is yet a long way off. The open season for grouse came in Sunday, One flock was seen a little way a*K>vc Scofield a w**ek ago and everyone in camp has designs deep and daring to bag them. Government by injunction may not be making new friends rapidly, but is daily securing wider application. The courts seem to be fast usurping the legislative functions. These days a new low record for silver is about the commonest thing. This is a promising time for the fellows who in their speeches last fall compared silver with wheat. The hope of international bi metalism doing anything for silver is a will o the wisp in a distant swamp, The confer ence may t ike place, but that does not mean bimetalism. Gunnison county’s rich stores of lead and copper, quarries of marble, beds of coal and agricultural interests may not be lessened iu value by the fall of silver, but will feel its effect on commerce in general. It is indeed gratifying to note that be cause of the failure of crops in other lands the American farmer will receive a fair price for the immense crops of Corn and wheat grown in the United States this year. There are “wheels within wheels.” It is asserted that the reports sent out from | Washington derogatory to Secretary of State Sherman are only a part of a deep laid pl< > oust the venerable statesman ! at an early date. j There are a number of amusing ancc | dotes based upon misunderstandings of ! the deliuition of the little word, “ditto”; I same thing. Gunnison has a merchant whose name is Ditto, and in that case it i means “groceries”. I j The Denver Post man who “Glances * at our neighbors” through smoked glass : is credited with having immortalized ; himself. He has invented the new word “Klondiciiis” which has the virtue of obvious translation. — W. C. Calhoun, the Denver publisher, with his customary enterprise, has issued “Alaska’s Gold Fields” a book tilled with all available information of the Klondike, i It is a volume of seventy pages, enjer i tainingly written, and invaluable to the ! person afflicted with Klondiciiis. It is * mailed to any address on receipt of 25c, i by the publisher. A Crystal Young flan’s Golden Rules Never be too inquisitive. Never do a thing in a hurry Never grow weary of living.

Don’t feel hurt that you are corrected. Never hide your light under a bushel. Don’t worry yourself about other peo ple. Don’t think yoursolf too good for oth ers. Don't fail to find some good in every person. Don’t forget that y >u alone are but mortal. Don’t kick a person who is already down. Never forget that the wheel of fortune is fickle. Don’t fail to show the good traits of your character. Never illuse a dumb animal: do not forget they have feelings. Atchison Globe Sights. People worry a great deal over troubles that come under the head of things that are none of their business. Everyone is conceited in his thoughts: the humble are those who keep their conceit out of their words actions. When a woman visits in a town where some of h**r kin live, and doesn’t go to see them, all the fat is in the lire. Our idea of a very energetic woman is one who lives next door to a greenhouse, and keeps up an extensive flower garden. Some folks believe thsy are so good that people will never think of go wiping about them. But they are mistaken. H *.v a woman must love a man wh'> thinks so much of her that ho shoots her to prevent some other man from getting her! No man ever amounted to anything who could answer nil the fool questions risk-; 1 at n school or civil service examin ation. The cold truth is no amount of polish will make a man an agreeable conversa tionalist unless he sandwiches in some gossip. We believe that we wuld like 1 je y better if newspaper accounts of acci dents didn’t use the expression, “Crush ed to a jelly. Somehow a man or woman who has been divorced, always reminds us of a hire ! girl who has been discharged with out references. When a woman refuses an invitation by saying that an acceptance would lie an imposition, that settles it: she is getting ready to accept. There is one serious objection to the watermelon: the watermelon season makes a woman discontented with the size of her refrigerator. A man may find cause for a feeling of pride at this season of the year if the pile of watermelon rinds at his alley gate is larger then his neighbor's. If the women do not go to heaven, as Evangelist Needham claims, where do they go: it can’t be pdRsible that hell has been turned into a Cautauqua. What a fool trick it is for a country dog to follow his master’s wagon to town on a hot day when he might have re maincd at home in the shade! It must often impress a father that love will work miracles in a girl’s extrav agant tastes, if it is love for a young man instead of love for her father. We hope we are patient, but when we approach a man, and ask him if he knows anything new, and I10 studies half an houriiefore answering “No,” we hate him. When a man falls in love with a wo man, there is no use calling his atten tion to the fact that there are miliums more in the world of the same sex: he knows it. By some mischance, the women who claim that a large family can live com fortably on 825 a month, if well managed never seem to lie the women who are sueing for alimony. Every once in a while a girl says in tl e presence of the young men that all tl e desirable men are already married, and i though the young men don’t say much, ! they recall that all the best cooks in the 1 world arc also married.
