This is the season of the year when politicians expect to pay a subscription price for the support of a newspaper and fifty dollars for a saloon's support. In some eases the paper is only ordered and never paid for. To the candidate for public office nothing is so essential and necessary to success as newspaper sup port, and no honorable man should tnink of receiving the use of space in a paper without paying for it, any more than he would think of using space in a hotel bed without paying, while campaigning. Many papers devoted to a certain po litical party’s interests are paid largo sums by the Central Committee, and thus in duty bound to support vigorous, jy the nominees of that party* Not so with the paper of independent or neutral political color. Such a papet should be, and usnallv is. a fair and fear less exponent of the best interests of the public, and consequently their influence can not be had by unworthy candidate. But because a newspaper cannot con sistently support a candidate does not Imply that it should bitterly oppose him. Whatever seeming ingratitude may be evinced toward newspapers by politicians is not the fault of anybody except pub lishers whose truckling methods display a lack of knowledge of their own inter ests. Until newspaper men learn the value of their stock in trade, they may expect politicians to look upon the sa loon investment as a business proposi tion, nnd newspaper expense as a sort of necessary evil. Trans-Mississippi Exposition. We are in receipt of a handsome little prospectus of twelve pages, filled with interesting information about the ap proaching exposition at Omaha, to be held from June to November, 1898. Since the World’s Fair, the San Fran cisco, Atlanta, and Nashville attractions directed wide attention to their sec tions of the country. Now, at a most opportune time, the great Middle West is about to have one that will be only second to the Columbian celebration in the closing years of the century. Omaha is peculiarly well situated to make such a show a success, and the managers are not indulging any wild or unreasonable expectations. As an ex ample of this conservatism the estimated attendance for the five months is placed at 2,500,030 people. It is to be hoped the interest being manifested throughout Colorado may erystalize into perfected plans for a state exhibit worthy the Cen tennial State. Doubtless the meeting of the Western Editorial Federation, which was to have met in New Orleans, in October, will be postponed indefinitely, until the yellow fever epidemic is past. Week after next is Denver's gala sea son. Everybody in Colorado who can do so should attend. Enterprise that cre ates such magnificent events deserves patronage* and aside from that the Fes tival of Mountain and Plain is distinctly Coloradoan, and superior to other great Annual celebrations. It is more exten aive than the Priests of Pallas at Kansas City; possesses the originality lacking in Bt. Louis’ Veiled Prophets, and more originality than New Orleans Mardi Gras, to say nothing of being in the handsom city in the west, where intense heat **ver mars the pleasure of itd visitors. CRYSTAL, GUNNISON COUNTY, COLORADO, SEPTEMBER 24, 1897. AMONG THE MINES. Float Picked Up Around the Crystal District and Echoes From the Dany Mines. Frank Dempke will soon l»egin work on Whitehouse again, having secured a lease on the Jackwhacker. Dempke is a hustler when it comes to securing a lease or contract. The Crystal Mountain Mine was idle a few days the first of the week , but re Burned again Thursday. The tunnel is being driven in a quartzite formation, which is very hard. The Daisy is offering encouragement to its owners. In the small amount of development work done the vein the quality of the ore streak continues to show better values. Bill Batt has finished his assessment work in Crystal Basin and is now doing assessment work on the Agnes, a Sheep Mountain property about a thousand feet above the Black Queen. A1 Lee reports that some of the lx*st showing prospects in this district are on Galena Mountain, and predicts that with in a year some shippers will be numbered among the properties up there. The Bear Mountain Tunnel will echo the roar of the air drills, and daily blasts within a few days. Everything in the equipment is first class in every respect and when the actual work of driving the tunnel is under way rapid progress will be made. The Stockholm mine which has been in comparative idleness for some time is | now being worked in away that reminds I one of its early days. Work is being j pushed in the breast of the tunnel, and j expect to continue with a good force of miners until the contact is cut. The Lead King has been shipping a good deal of ore this week, and has been doing a great deal of dead work. The development work lining done is showing constant increase in the visible ore sup ply, and the shipments may Ik* largely increased at any time the management may choose. OUR SALTED PLACER.

The Gunnison ('Hampton will publish \ the delinquent tax list, for about 75 per cent of the legal rate. From the daily Lance, Sept. 24, 1901: A message received just as wego to press brings the expected news than the Mc- Lean bill has become a law. the signa ture of President Bryan having been af ! fixed at 10:30 this morning. Senator McLean, who has been the silver leader ■ in the east, since defeating Mark Hanna i for Senator four years ago, is naturally I gratified that the bill is a law. It has | required more time for Congress to enact ( the coinage law than it did the extra | session of ’97 to pass the Dingloy bill. • The pen holder used in signing the bill ! was made of sixteen parts silver and one Ipart gold, and the pen of copper. The 1 silver was taken from the Black QueeD, Catalpa, Inez and Belle mines, nnd the j gold from the Bear Mountain Tunnel, Van Deusen and-Daisy, while the copper was from the Lead King. The special commissioner appointed by the Crystal . council, presented the pen to the Pxesi dent, who after signing his name, handed it to the national museum ef the Smith | soiian Institute. Carbondale Happenings. Mrs. Bogan is in Aspen again at this writing. Mrs St. John has !w*en spending a few days in town, putting up fruit. Mrs. Kosn Nurenuburg has returned from Wisconsin, where she has been on an extended visit. Miss Jessie Rinehart was compelled to miss school the p;u*t few days on ac count of her eyes. * There were seven new pupils enrolled this week at schr>ol, thus making eighty three in attendance. One day this week Charley Melton brought down Mr. Burnett’s family, on their way to Aspen. Qtii'e a number from here attended the Garfield County Fair at Gtenwood, Friday nnd Saturday of last week, A surprise party was given last Satur day at Mrs. Patterson's home in honor of her mother’s fifty fourth birthday. Harry Gardener who has l>eoD working at the Belle of Titusville at. Crystal, the past few months, is again seen on our streets. Mr. and Mrs. Pollch, who have been residing here for some time past, depart ed for Pueblo, where Mr. Pollch has an appointment in a store. • Editor Williams of the Marble Times advertises his paper for sale or lease in order to give his attention to mining enterprises. Tuesday Cripple Creek was the scene of five county conventions all in one day. The metropolis of El Paso county is not without glory in her own land. The railroads have made very low rates to the Denver Festival. When people can go to a big show’os cheap as they can stay at home, they generally travel. W. M. Pace, Thos. O’Bryan aud W. S. Smith have been appointed judges of election for Crystal precinct, number 2!l, at the coming election. As tin* first named does not now reside here there will be a vacancy. Thursday Inst, a Mexican bearing the name of Arrova attempted to assassinate President Diaz, at the capital of the Republic of Mexico. His attempt was frustrated, but the populace seized the assassin and hacked him topieces. Jess Lovesay, who has the mail eon tract on the Crested Butte, Irwin and Ruby star route, has been taken in cus tody by the officers for examination ns to his sanity. Physicians attribute his tin fortunate condition to overwork. The American Commission seems to have accomplished something in induc ing the Bank of England to consent to hold onefifth of its reserve in silver, on conditions. Eddie sc«*ms to be using that hundred thousand advantageously. The Glen wood Springs Avalanche is now in the Democratic column. Editor Holmes finds there are not anough of the National Silver party left in Garfield County to hold an experience meeting and announces the Chicago platform is good enough for him. Miss Nellie Flavin, was elected Maid of Honor to represent this county at the Festival of Mountain nnd Plain. The Tribune says "Miss Flavin is oneof Gun nison’s handsomest young ladies, a de cided favorite, and a home grown girl in every sense of the word/’ The Lance congratulates Miss Flavin. On our desk lies a white winged mis sive, announcing the approaching imp tials of Mr. E. J. Hurd, formerly of the Lance, and Miss Winnifred G. White, to lx* solemnized at the home of the brides parents, in Denver. Thursday evening, I September 30th. at 8 o’clock. Miss White j is a talented and very attractive young | lady, which is ample evidence of Ed'•# good taste. And Ed well, he is a news paper man. ’Xough said. We note that the Morgan county peo ple have selected Miss Ethel Flannigen, daughter of the editor of the Herald , as .Maid of Honor. Miss Flannigen will be a most creditable representative of that splendid agricultural district. She is a talented young lady, who has grown from childhood amid the changing scenes of ( that section, and observant of its rapid j development. Among Morgan's many beautlful young ladies a better selection i coaid-not have boen made. Atchison Globe Sights. Neaely all luck is bad luck. We hate people who read aloud. Women nnd preachers are overworked mighty easily. No man who wears a heard should l e called ‘‘Jack.’’ No man looks well when the thermo n* eter is above 90. People who have the least luck have most faith in it. A compliment is nearly always the rankest kind of a lie. A man who induces little boys to fight is always worthless. Here’s to the home makers of the country: The Hired Girls. If you w-ant to hear snorting, praise a Christian scientist to a doctor. When a man is looking for trouble he should get into a dentist’s chair. Some women would excuse a crook if he went to communion regularly. Did anyone ever know a railroad engi neer who died a natural death? A reformer is always ready to lis.en to i reason, if there is any money in it. Did you ever notice how kindly every one speaks to a real worthless person? The more the newspapers’“roast”some people, the more they advertise them. There is no quarrel quite so fierce as that between a farmer and his renter. Watermelons begin to taste like a guest's visited that has lnsted too long. Nothing will make a good housekeeper move so quickly as the sight of a moth The women bring about most of the marriages and sue for most of the di vorces. Our idea of a chump is a man who carries a tooth brush sticking out of his pocket. When a man can’t catch fish with min * nows, he thinks he ought to have frogs for bait. What a lot of courage it must have required in the man who was the first to eat an oyster. Give a woman time to go off by her self, and she can always meet the demand for a pin. Don't exagerate: if you repeat a story as it was told to you, you are exagerat iug enough. When a society girl takes a position as n bookkeeper, it is said she has become an amanuensis. Every man thinks he is a good man. but the facts are that good men are dis tressingly scarce. An old man's idea of a bright and in telligent woman is one who enjoys hear ing reminiscences. We make the claim that at least in one* particular we are like the I>»rd: we love a cheerful giver. The real lucky boy is the one* who is well during vacation, and takes sick just before school begins. Even good and patient women long to be rich jmt long eon ugh to snub some one who has snubbe*el them. A boy who goe*s away freim home to attend a “military" school, shouldn’t come back wearing the clothes. A man works awfully harel all his life in order to have enough saved to pay a doctor to cut him open at last. Nothing makes a woman feed quite so prouel as to hear her children say that they have never seen a bed bug. A man who builds a new house, at tracts as much attention and criticism as an old widower who marries again. Our idea of a gex>d time would Ik? to go to Europe, and get killed in an ava lanche* while making a tour of the Alps. The average* woman will let nothing on earth prevent her from putting up fruit for the* winter, except a chance to attend a murder trial. After people pass sixty years of age. they trace every ailment of. youth to the* indiscretion of having remained up as late* as ten o’clock at night. Whenever any one enters a place of business whistling or humming a tune, you can set him down as a chump, and refuse to back down from your opinion A man was Iwmsting of his good health and of his long lived ancestors. “There* was my grandfather,” ho said, “he was 85 years old, and never did die; ho was killed.” j The Silver Republican county conven tion will meet at Gunnison.
