GOV. WHITMAN SCORES LAWLESSNESS IN HIS INAUGURAL ADDRESS Albany, X. V., Jan. l.—A warn ing that the spirit of lawlessness in all American communities goes un checked was one of the striking ut terances in Governor Charles S. Whitman's inaugural address today.

"Xo material prosperity, no abound ing wealth, no progress in tlio scienc es can save us from moral decadence and untimely decay if this spirit of lawlessness and contempt for legal authorities shall continue. ‘‘There s but one way of meeting the question and that way was is through the creation of a dominati) and .persevering public sentiment in support of the enforcement of the law.

King Albert of Belgium sent ilie following message from his general army headquarters: "On the occasion of the New Year 1 1 send you my most sincere congrat ulations and the wishes I form for the \velfa>e of the groat American nation whose generosity to Belgium is of so much help in this time of distress and sorrow.” New Year’s day in the national capital was unusually quiet. Because of i lie* formal state of mourning which has continued since the death of Mrs. Wilson, there was no reernthm at the White House. The annual diplomatic breakfast by tin* secretary or state to the mem bers of t.lu diplomatic corps has been abandoned heeliutse cf the war and many other time-honored ceremonials which usuallv play an important role : in the Washington official New Year celebration were omitted for the same reason. In official and diplomatic 1 circles the day was observed with the usual exchanges of greetings, though many of the diplomats were unable to greet old friends of the corps, hav ing become enemies, at least official ly since 1!»1 4 was ushered in.

JANUARY 1. 1915 Reminiscences of The Frontier Days The goose that In id- ill** golden ! nuggets was a pretty busy aruoml 1 Gilpin county in tin*, roseute days, o- . IXG7 and the fellow who could not pick u * a fortune must have been the partner of Jgff. The hills were teeming with prospectors by ; that time bait found so manryrßooci ! things that they were becoming , overloaded with ore, for as yet there : was no way to reduce it. The arrus ■ tns and stump mills wore there : pounding away on the* free milling gold ore but there was no smelter I lor reducing the silver ores and in | this drawback lay the only wot blanket to many a rosy dream. The countryside was flecked with , the wrecked remains of abandoned mills which had proven failures be cause the ores were so refractory and stubborn in their intricate com position that nobody knew how it treat them. There is always a Moses, however, for every emergency unit it only required the divining rod of some master mind to bring order out of chaos. It was the great poet. Goethe who said: ‘‘Genius is the in - unite cujmeity 'for taking pains," and it must have been something more than this that directed the .....steps of Professor Nathaniel P. Hill to tlio Black Hawk district, for *J)o was a graduated chemist, geolo gist. mineralogist and metallurgist, all combined in one, and such a gen ius had never before been seen in the Colorado mountains. He hud just come from the great smelting, plant at Swansea, Wales, and was full of the scientific ideas appertaing to the new processes of extracting the pre cious metals front the crude ore. The young professor had no mon ey to speak of but lie had the brains and the hustling spirit. The first tiling he did was to look over the in numerable dump piles, make assays and then ho peeled his Jacket. He found a vacant spot at the tool of Randolph Hill and began building some funny piles in alternating lay ers of cord wood, crushed ore. lime stone and rock salt, all laid up in the o ten. Those pyres eight feet square were sided up and fired much as a lime kiln is kindled. As a re sult the sulphur was burned out and the ore reduced to copper matte. Pot a number of years these mattes wen hauled out by bull train and shipped clear over to Swansea but the re turns from the rich ores were so gratifying that -the experiments paid. Then in January the following year after getting some money from William H. Abbey of Boston, a kal sominer and a furnace stack were built by the Boston Colorado • Smelting company which luunched out on u most brilliant career anil from which many of our greatest ' Colorado fortunes were made thru i the redutcion works subsequently ; built at Argo, near Denver. In IS7B Richard Pearce, ul?o a post gradu ate from Swansea, came over from Georgetown and took practical charge of the. enlarged works at Black Hawk and then tin* triumcratc of Hill, Abbey and Pearce was com plete. It was the greatest reduction and refining enterprise ever estab lished in the world anil cot along all right until the Guggenheim smelting trust came along and killed the ; goose.—Field and Farm. From Field and Farm. Tlie Last Stand.; Old Fort Wash akie was one of the historic forts around which clustered many great events in the Indian wars of .°>r>.and 40 years ago. It was In the vicinity of this post that was fought one of the great and final battles of the In itial! wars that followed the Custer massacre. General Nelson A. Miles was in chief command or the regu lar troops at the time and the Indians opposing hint were the Northern Cheyennes. Arapahoes and Shoshones. General Crook was engaged in the farther noKli Black Hills country against the escaping Sioux. The chief in command ol' the allied Indian tribes was Washakie, often referred to in frontier history as the double ,of the great chief-Teeumseli of the Shawnees of IHll, whom General William Henry Harrison overwhelm ed at the buttle of Tippecanoe. Wash akie was a Hnonsiionc and always maintained that he was in direct de scent from Teeumseli. In the con cluding battle t.he Indians were over whelmed and. Washakie was taken a prisoner. The camp. 1C miles north west of the present town of Lander. Wyo... was named for him and the Indians were held there as prisoners. The camp had been established as a ease of supplies for operations against the Indians and was built of Ipg wails with canvas or tent cover ings. Many of the Indians broke out of their temporary prisons and were shot down by the troops. The. bucks were taken completely by surprise, and were recaptured-and reimprison ed. Washakie was not of the escap ing party, hut counselled against the attempted flight and was given the liberty of the eontonment. It- was through his good offices that peace was eventually declared in that part of the country. The cantonment of Camp Washakie was subsequently re constructed into a tort, partly stock aded. and was named Fort Washakie in honor of tire old chief. The fort as such was built In the early eighties and for years was oc cupied by federal troops. About f eight years ago an order was issued f abandoning the fort, bin the order ' jv.as shortly thereafter revoked and the place was continued as a one com pany pom until 1 ftOlt. In llo*7 the government expended $2 tib.no • in re.- \ .habilitating the water supply at-the post, but no further improvements were other than mnporury re pairs to the old log buildings. With the opening of the Shoshone reserva tion at that lime the continuance of the old fort became unnecessary, hut the ruins are still there 1 miles west of the Arapahoe agency. * From Field and Farm. Next to Godliness: On the Na vajo reservation, comprising 20,000 square miles In northern Arizona and New Mexico such u thing ns a hath tub is unknown. Nevertheless, it must not be assumed that. the Xavn jos, of whom there arc 28,000. never take a bath. Much of the reserva tion ifi desert with water a scarce and precious commodity. Perhaps this explains why it. is that they have in voiitod a method of taking baths without the application of u drop »*t water. Near every hogiin may be seen a sweat house which is in use probably more in the winter than in ihe summe* It is a small ovonlike structure, usualH built of adobe clay, l ut sometimes consisting simply of a woodoti frame covered with skins and blankets. When a buck desires to take u natli in* builds a lire close to a sweat house and place therein it number of good sized stones. When the stones have been lien ted ted hot they are piled up against the wall In the interior of the sweat house Then the bather divests him self of all clothing and crawls In side. allowing only the head to pro trude. closing the entrance by means of heavy blankets held tightly around the neck so that the al * heated by Hie red hot stones cannot escape. In a very few minutes he begins to per spire freely and before long appears to be literally inciting. After while the bather comes out. rubs himself down vigorously with a blankets ami pees on his way rejoicing, having ac romplish°u Ihe feat of taking a wa terless ablution. Thus perishes the common opinion that the redskin never known to take a hath. MRS.

COLORADO CROP VALUES SHOW STATE’S GROWTH Fifteen year:?'ago all the apple or chards of Colorado produced only 257,huh bushels. This year the pro duction was more than *1,000,000 bushels, and hundreds of thousands of growing trees have not yet come into bearing. Colorado's hay and potato crops this year are of greater value than ull the rye produced In the I’nited States in any year. Buckwheat is produced in 25 states, but the wheat crop of Colo rado alone this year is worth more than the total buckwheat crop of the country: and all Lite money paid to tlio buckwheat growers of tlie* na tion would not buy the sugar beets produced In four Colorado counties. North Carolina produces more sweet potatoes than any .other state 'n the l iiion. but their value is less than that of Colorado’s apple crop. Colorado, with a population of less thali I per cent of that of the coun try. ranks tenth among the states in the value of Its hay crop for 1!»14. All the flaxseed produced in the United States this year was of less value than two crops of Colorado — wheat and sugar beets. The rice crops of Louisiana ana Texas combined are loss valuable than the alfalfa crop of Colorado for 1014. More storage capacity is required for the wheat crop of Colorado than tor the eutire peas crop of the Unit ed States ami Canada combined. More sugar was produced from beets grown in Colorado this year than was produced In the entire United States twelve years ago. Tills year's out »ut of Colorado re- ; fineries won hi supply for more than a year all the people of Colorado. Idaho. Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada. New Mexico and North Da kota. If it were all shopped to Now 1 irk it would supply the demand from all, the people of that city for fourteen months. Ii is sufficient, to meet the demands of all Australia and all New Zealand for a year and a half. It is worth more than all the cocoa and chocolate consumed In the Unit-, od States in a year. It is more valu able than all tlu* intoxicants import-; ed into the country in a year: also more valuable than all the tea. coil-' sinned by the people of Ihe United states In twelve mouths.
