"Leaves have their time to fall, and flowers to wither at the north wind's cold blast, but thou, oh Death! hath all seasons for thine own." Once again a Brother Mason, hav- ing completed the designs written eor him on life's trestle board, has pa~- sod through the portals of Eternity and entered the Grand Lodge of the New Jerusalem and hath received as his reward, the white stone with t~e new name written thereon. And whereas, the all-wise and merciful master of the universe has called from labor to refreshment our beloved and respected brother, he having been a true and faithful member of our beloved Order, there- fore be it Resolved, That Olive Branch Lodge, No. 32 A. F. and A. M. of Saguache, Colorado in testimony of its loss, drape its Charter in mourn- ing for thirty days and that we ten- der to the family of our deceased brother our sincere condolence in their deep affliction and that a copy of these resolutions be sent to th~ family.

CARD OF THANKS To the friends who came to us i~ our hour of trouble, and contributed all that humhn kindness could sug~ gest, to help and comfort, we return most heartfelt thanks, and although such devoted friendship cannot r~- move the sad memories that linger around our vacant chair, it brings into view the brightest side of hu- manity, and throws the pure light oi an unselfish friendship into a dark- ened home. May the day be fa~ distant when those friends who ga- thered around us will need similax attention, but when the time comes may they receive the same full mea: sure of generous aid and tende~ sympathy they brought to our home when death was an inmate there.

Swa|n ~r Politics, Whleh?~ ends with the State re- publicans taking things easy and awaiting the outcome of their na- tional convention in Cleveland. The salt which the I~oover faction of the republican party gave to the Land~n faction in California is being studied by the leaders of the party in this State very carefully. Colorado's delegation to Cleveland goes unin- structed. California sent an unin- structed delegation but it was :on- sidereal before the primaries and is still considered as a delegation more or less inclined to follow the wishes of President Hoover. No one in ~his State thinks that Hoover will be nominated, but they are beginning to wonder if he will not have something to say about the nominee and the platform. For that reason the mem- bers of the party are more or less in- clined to await the action of the na- tional convention at Cleveland be. fore they take any further steps here. During the week Henry Sher- man of Ft. Collins announced him- self as a candidate for attorney general, and that was the only event of interest in the party. On the democratic side the main event of the week were: first, the trip to Judge Benjamin C. Hilliard and Mayor Ben Stapleton to Wash- ington to look over things political. Stapleton is there trying to get money for three Denver projects. Hilliard is there to talk things ovex with the president and with Senator Adams and to determine whether or not he will run for the Senate again- st Johnson ]n the primaries. The second event was the practical an- nouncement of former governor Sweet that he will be a candidate for the governorship, but that he will not enter the assembly but will go on the primary ballot by petition. The third event of the week was the com- ing to Denver of Elmer Headlee of Monte Vista to discuss with many of the political leaders the propositi~n of his running for the governorship. There are a large number of derek. crats who want Mr. Headlee to get in that race. And the fourth event of the week was a trip made by Moses E. Smith, of Ault, to the Ar- kansas Valley to build some fences for himself should he later decide to get into the gubernotorial race. If all of the democratic candidates who are being discussed for the gov- ernorship enter the race, someone will be left out in the assembly. Each candidate must poll twenty per cent of the total vote of that es- sembly to get on the primary ballot. So far seven are being discussed That could eliminate quite a group of them. The motor vehicle department has cancelled the license of 149 owners of automobiles since December 1. Colorado officials are watching the new tax laws of New Mexico. They have recently adopted an amendment to their constitution that provides that the automobile license' f money and the general tax on the car will be collected at the .same time. If it proves to be satisfactory such an amendment may be proposed here. Colorado will receive $750,000.00 of the $75,000,000.00 that has been led "of five years after the buildings left leg.
