WALDEN, COLORADO, JUNE 16, 1910. HAHNS PEAK DESTROYED County Seat of Routt County Wiped off the Mijp by Fire- Court House Saved. Saturday night the town of Hahns Peak was practically wiped off the map by fire. Everything but the Court House and a few small buildings, was burned to the ground. The Court House was badly damaged and was in such danger at one time during the fire that all the county books and records were taken out. The town, which a few years ago was a prosperous mining town of 3,000 in habitants, is now almost deserted, most of the people having gone to Steamboat for shelter. It is doubtful if there will be any attempt to rebuild it, as steps are being taken to have the county seat changed to Steamboat Springs. The fire started from a defective flue in the Larson Hotel and spread rapidly to other buildings in the neighborhood, under the impulse of a high south wiud. The total loss will probably exceed $75,000. WALDEN HAS THREE AUTOS AND MORE ARE COMING. Our Town is Just Beginning to Wake Up and is Letting the World Know that Its on the Map. on Eve of big Boom.

With the coming of the L. H. P. & P. railroad it ought to ceme to the front in big bounds, that will make the people 'sit up and take notice.

It seems strange that, after tracing so much poverty and crime direct to the saloon, the American people do not rise en masse aud obliterate it from the face of the eaith. No one who keeps pace with the times can deny that the saloon is responsible, either directly or indirect for nine tenths of this poverty and crime. No one can deny that it is whiskey that has made the coward a demon who took the life of hjs fellow man. No one can deny that in nearly every walk of life its baneful influence can be traced, from the United States Senate to the almshouse and penitent iary. No well advised trades unionist can deny that a larger part of the in fernal quarrels and bickerings among trades unionists have have been con cocted in the back rooms of saloons. The greatest curse to the labor move ment has been the saloon, and it is high time that the labor leaders get together REPORTS from RAND Mrs. Rutledge spent Friday with Mrs Dorsey.
