Whether or not the convicts, now at work on the state highway, will complete the work i nthis county is a matter that is giving the public spirited citizens of the city and coun ty a considerable degree of concern. An itemized expense account shows that the $10,000 appropriation has al- riiost been exhausted but a move ment is now on foot to keep the work going by subscriptions of local busi ness men. The chamber of commerce has taken the matter in hand and sev eral business men have signified a willingness to help matters along un til the next appropriation is made by contributions. The convicts are averse to going back to Canon City and the county is loath to see them go, fear ing that the work in this section will be abandoned if once it is stopped. Other portions of the state are anx ious to have the work stated there and unless the work is completed as far as Trinidad at least it is feared that this end of the state will be abandoned. Mules, tents, machinery, etc., have already been purchased and paid for, and the subsequent expense will not be large as compared with the results obtained. Definite action will probably be taken at once. HENRY LIVRAN General Hardware Paints, :: Oils ;: and :: Varnishes HARNESS Harness V Repairing CANVAS AND SPORTING GOODS Two Doors East of Post Office.
