Tb ClnlleleN farmrr,
A farmer had acven daughters,
Anl but little else bo had;
And the if Iris all huil good appetite.
Anl times were very Imd.
He brllied tbe country paper
To nay In hln cellar's mold
He hud hidden, being it miner,
Seven kog of rel, red gold.
He thought bo knew human nature.
That farmer, and he smiled
When down the seventh rope-ludder he
Saw eliipe his seventh child. 1
But It In extremely doubtful
If at the time, he foresaw
Their return with his fourteen irrundehildren,
And seven sons-in-law.
Tli Attorney General.
Governor Shelden must have been un
informed as to (he statu of the Attor
ney General's ofiiee, or lie would have
hardly made an appointment at the
present time. We do not believe it
possible that the Governor desires to act
in opposition to the decision of our high
est court ; but that is what he really has
done. The Supreme Court, at the Jan
uary term of the present year, decided
tliat the oilice was vacant and that the
(Jovernorhad.no authority to fill the
vacancy : and nothing has happened to
change the condition of a flairs since
In the spring of 1878, a vacancy in the
oilice occurred by resignation, and Gov,
Axtcll appointed Judge Waldo Attor
ney General, under Sec. 18i)8, of the U
S. Revised Statutes, which reads as fol
"In any of the Territories, whenever
"a vacancy happens from resignation
"or death uunng the recess of the legis
"lative council, in any office which, un
tier the organic act 01 the lerntorv
"to be tilled by appointment of the Gov
"ernor, by and with the advice and eon
"sent of the council, the Governor shal
"lill such vacancy by granting a com
"mission which shall expire at the end
"of the next session of the legislative
Before the expiration of the next ses
sion of the council, Gov. Wallace nomi
nated Mr. E. A. Fiske for the office, but
Mr. Fiske was rejected by the council.
After the council adjourned, Gov. Wal
1 nff- -i-v 1 .
i.tce gave iur. risKe a commission as
Attorney General. Under this eommis
sion, Mr. Fiske endeavored to exercise
I lie duties of Attorney General, but tiie
courts in which he appeared refused to
recognize him. Nothing can be urged
in support of Governor Shelden' s re
cent appointment of Col. Ureeden,
which was not advanced in the Supreme
Court in favor of the validity of Mr.
Fiske" s commission.
It was contended on behalf of Mr
I.V . 1. . . 1 . .. . .1 .
risKcinai me vacancy was ine same
old vacancy created by the resignation
of Judge Waldo's predecessor, and that
the Governor had authority to appoint
under Section I808, above referred to
The court, however, held differently,
and Judge Bristol says :
i 111s construction ot the provisions
"oi mat act cannot he upheld.
. .'HI. 1 I II in
1 ne governor snail 1111 such vacancy
ijy granting a commission, etc., is the
"language of that act.
"If the vacancy was so filled by the
"appointment of Mr. Waldo, and he
"was thereby.te .wrc as well as de facto
"constituted an Attorney General, of
"which there can be no doubt, then
"there could be no further continuance
"of that particular vacancy.
"Under the circumstances, therefore,
"this act of Congress conferred no au
"thorityon the (iovcrnor to appoint Mr.
The opinion then proceeds in the fol
lowing strong language :
"The appointment of Mr. Fiske being
"without authority of law, and therefore
"void, Mr. Waldo conies in and claims
"title to the office.
"If the appointment of Mr. Fiske was
"without authority of law, as we be
"lieve, then we believe Gov. Shelden
"acted without authority of law in ap
"pointing Col. Breeden.
It is unnecessary to state here the
grounds of Judge Waldo's claim, as it
was quite different from the present
case. Judge Bristol closes the opinion
by saying that the Governor has "no
authority to make recess appointments
to offices of this description, except
where vacancies occur by death or res
ignation." "We all concur, therefore, in the
"opinion that neither Mr. Waldo nor
"Mr. Fiske is entitled to the office of
"Attorney General, and that the office
We trust that no one will imagine
that we, in the slighest degree, question
the litness of Gov. Shelden's appoint
ee, for we do not believe that the Gov
ernor could have made a better selec
tion" Col. Breeden is both able and elo
quent, and has had large experience as
a prosecuting officer. His appointment
"by and with the advise and consent of
the legislative council," would givo
WE M.1Y BE HAPPY YET.
Hon. John Evans and the Denver &
New Orleans railroad company have
each sued the Tribute for $100,000.
Both com plaints allege that the articles
published in the Tribune of yesterday
are false, malicious and detamatory,
meant, intended and designed to injure
Evans in his management of the Den
ver & New Orleans railway, and to
damage, hinder and embarrass the said
railway. And both complaints further
allege that upon information received,
complainants believe that these articles
referred to were published at the insti
gation of the Denver éc Km Grande
railway or some agent thereof because
they desire to prevent the construction
01 tne Denver & Xsew Orleans road,
tearing that it may become a 'rival
Denver Tribune, ... ..- .
There is a railroad war raging in Col
orado. The article in.the Denver Tri
bune alluded to, stated that ex-Governor
Evans had sold out the stockholders of
that road and is playing into the hands
of Jay Gould. Nearly every paper in
the State, so far as heard from, has ar
rayed itself against the Tribune. Pop
ular opinion is that the I). & R. G. K. K.
has instigated the attack, that the Tri
bune has fearlessly followed up by other
articles equally positive and couched
in even stronger terms. If the 1). & R.
company desires to k ill another com
peting line let it select the best route to
the gulf, that is the best policy to pur
sue, By building from its present ter
minus at Elmoro to Las Vegas and
then down the Pecos valley to Laredo;
it can do this. It looks as though the
D. & It. G., will be driven to adopt this
course. If it does not, then the Den
ver & New Orleans will build to Trini
dad, and then on to Las Vegas and
down the Pecos to a connection with
the Texas & Pacitic R. R., placing Den
ver in communication with New Or
leans. We may be happy yet!
