THE EAGLE: WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1895.
11 ItequeKted to Investigate. The Enterprise of the 1st prints what it calls the proceedings of the commis sioner's meeting held ten days previous ly. The report of the proceedings is very meager and gives the reader but a little idea of . what transpired at the meeting. For instance it says that J. E. Sheridan, the editor of the Enterprise, was the lowest bidder for the county printing and was awarded the contract. A very important part of the proceedings of the commissioners is the price at which Mr. Sheridan took the county printing, and an interesting part of the proceedings is the bids made by other men for this work, all of which was carefully omitted by the Enterprise. It is understood chat the Enterprise in its greed for the printing offered to print the proceedings for nothing. This, however, is no excuse for leaving out of the report any important part thereof. It also printed some twelve columns of the delinquent tax list, for which print ing it gets but little more than it does for proceedings. When it took the con tract for printing the tax list it was un derstood that the list should be printed correctly, and this involved reading and correcting the proof. From the appear ance of the list it looks as though a proof reader had never seen it. There are many glaring errors in it, and of course mese errors invalidate tne descrip tion in which they appear and ren der it useless as an advertisement. It is stated that the Enterprise will claim in mitigation of these errors and omissions that it is giving full value for all it re ceives in what printing it does, but this is no excuse. The law provides that the county shall have printed certain mat ters, and if a paper is so foolish as to un dertake to do this printing at a ruinous price it should Iks held as strictly to the work that should he done as if it was getting four prices for doing the work. The county commissioners are requested to investigate the matter. Western Liberal. A I'oxtage Stump Fraud. . A niuulier of people in this city have been receiving requests for stamps for an alleged charitable purpose. ISut the true gist of the matter is set forth in the following clipping from the IMainville, III., Observer: A young woman of Eaneville, Kane county, this state, has conceived a bril liant idea for collecting postage stamps, which at the same time has made her town famous and is causing the postollice no end of trouble. She wrote to three persons asking them to send her ten or more cancelled postage stamps and each to write to three other people asking them to do the same, the chain of geometrical progression to bo kept up until it reached i i ft y when it was to lie broken. She stated as a reason for this request that she was a cripple and desired to secure a million stamps which she could exchange for treatment in a hospital. The result is astounding, even to the brilliant mind that conceived the scheme. Kaneville.a postofHce that at most received twenty five letters a day, now receives a daily mail of from 10,000 to 17,000 letters, near ly all addressed to Edna Brown, the au thor of the brilliant idea. Over eight million stamps have been collected and the end is not yet. Edna Brow n is a married woman named Gorman and the hospital Htory is a myth. The public is requested to stop sending stamps and thus relieve an overburdened fourth-class postmaster from the arduous duty of as sorting thousands of letters daily. The Latest About Citpt. .John 1'. Hyland. The Globe-Democrat prints the follow ing special : Maryvili.k, Mo., February 4. The identification f John O'Connor, the missing postmaster from this city about twelve years ago, has been claiming at tention from the press lately, based on rumors. The following letter, received here today, is from a reliable source, and satisfies the best judgment in Maryville that John Hyland, of the Kingston "Shaft," published at Kingston, N. M., is John O Connor: "Hillsboro, N. M., February 1, 1895. Ira K. Alderman, United States commis sioner, Maryville Mo. : Dear Sir Yours of January 28 is received. It seems clear, from recent developments, that John P. Hyland, who formerly resided at Kings ton and edited the Kingston "Shaft," there, and who lately resided at Uincon, N. M., and edited the Hincón "Shaft," is the same John O Connor for whom you are inquiring. I see that it is an nounced in the i'A raso (lex.) 'Times and New Mexico papers that John Hy land has disappeared and is nowhere to be found at his residence in Hincón. I happened to be on the train upon which Hyland went from Hincón to El Paso, and since that time he has not been seen in the territory, lie came to Kingston, N. M., about twelve years ago, but from where he came no one seems to know. He has posed as an ex-soldier, and has been prominent in the Grand Army Lodge at Kingston ever since coining here. He is a man about 5 feet (i or 8 inches tall, weighs about 175 pounds, black hair and mustache not quite gray; about 50 years old. Has a very light complexion, through which a great deal of color shows. Since going to El Paso on the train mentioned 1 know of no one who knows anything of his whereabouts. I conversed with him and was then aware of the charges against him, but the subject was not mentioned between us. If I learn anything definite I will communicate wit 1 you." Mr. Hyland is said to have a family living at Kingston. Mrs. O'Connor, his Maryville wite, stoutly insists that her husband is dead. SILVER'S CHAMPION. THE ROCKY ' MOUNTAIN NEWS KstuMlHlirrt lHr.ft.
