From the fusion press the wail guns up that an extra session will be neces- sary if the supreme court affrms the decision handed down by Judge Dixon in tha revenue law case. Wa do not be- lieve that this is at all necessary. We have always maintained that the old rev- enue law'wu sufficient, the trouble being in the assessors. Even if the governor should decide to call a special session there ie no reason for calling it at once, The legislature can in no way pass a law which will offset the revenue of this year. If the decision of Judge Dixon is sustained this years revenues must be collected u~der the old revenue law. The argument advanced by some that because the state has collected and paid out over $100,000 of special taxes under this revenue law and if the law is not sustained will have to pay it back, is no reason why the gross irregularities in the presage of this bill should be overlooked by the supreme court. Dcfcatof Revenue Measure. Surely the long suffering state of Colo- rado ia tired by this time of the reign of Mad Mullahism in its politics and is willing to abandon tha fusion scheme as a sad and costly experiment. The decision of Judge Dixon in the district court at Pueblo declaring the revenue bill passed by the recent fusion legislature unconstitutional for the rea- son that it was never voted on, ib another illustration and an exceedingly costly one of the irresponsibility of the con- glomeration that is brought to the statehouse under the guise of fusion and in the name of "silver." The measure in question was before the assembly from the first day until the lot and yet it was acted on after the tmmion had legally adjourned and even then in a manner wholly at variance with requirements of the constitution. The retmon for this was that the members were responsible to no one but them- selves and a large number of them were there "for what there was in it." They were hired by parties intarested to make the bill unconstitutional and they did so and the whole state is the sufferer. It wu known to the governor and his ad. vises that the bill had not been legally pasm~, but the executive signed it and the politici*me around him upheld it' purely for political purposes. The bill was heralded as a slap at the corpora- tions and a measure that would require them to pay their just taxes, when every one knew that the corporations found, not only in this particular case, but in i every other, the meet pliant tools in the irresponsibles brought about by the l fusion scheme. It is a crying disgrace that such things i should be lmrmitted. The finances of theI state have been disorganized and untold injury will be done to its business before the jumble can be extricated, and what makes it all tha wor~ is the knowledge that there was no necessity for the bill in the first place. The revenues of the state are now higher than ever they were before. All that is necessary to secure sufficient revenue is a simple amend- ment to the existing law, stopping the leak through the state board of equaliza- tion and electing a state administration that him some business een~.--Herald- Democrat. q[ha ~Jses of a Vice President. It was not expected when Theodore Roosevelt was elected last fall that he would be a vice president just like any- one else. For a number of years past that position has been called the politi- cal graveyasd, but we have had ashrewd suspicion that this was chiefly beceuso it was chiefly occupied by individuals of whom it was always considered polite to speak in the past tense. Roosevelt was not that kind of a man, and one of the good things that was ex- pected to result from his election was a development of the possibilities of the vice presidency. So far he ban disappointed his ene- mies and delighted his friends by doing nothing sensational or absurd. The most rn Teethi g Then the baby is most like- ly nervous, and fretful, and doesn't gain in weight. Scott's Emulsion is the best food and medicine for teething babies. They scrupulous advocate of senatorial dig- nity or care:ul observer of senatorial tradition could find no fault with the quiet gentleman who has presided over tbe American senate. But Mr. Roose- velt has shown us recently that the vice president may perform au important ser- vice in vacation by I,ringmg the national government personally closer to the peo- ple of the remoter sections of the coun- try. We are quite sure that as a result of the events of the past two weeks Colo- rado, and in particular Colorado Springs is nearer to Washington than it ever was before. The vice president of the United States has been among us, he has talked and visited and dined and made speeches and gone hunting and assisted in puhlic I ceremonies in a thoroughly American manner, and he has been to us an object lesson of the unity of our nation and the i alikeness of Americans east and west that has been most valuable. It wouldn't be a bad idea for the vice president of the United States to make a regular practice of doing just this sort of thing. Our country is so large that the relations between the federal government at Washington and the people in distant parts must necedserily be indirect and infrequent. It is a good thing for the president to travel all he can and meet all the people he can during his term of office, and this is also a good thing for the vice president.--Gazette. NeW Song by ZNewman. Edmund Vance Cooke, the Cleveland poet, is the author of "The Langmd Man," a very clever song which Joe Newman has helped to make popular. Mr. Cooke recently visited Denver and he and Mr. Newman met aud a warm friendship has sprung up between them. Mr. Cooke recently sent Mr. Newman the following odd and clever selection with the request that he write a melody for it, and Mr. Newman intends to do so at once: OTTO AND THE AUTO. 'Tls strange how fashion makes us change the objects We admire~ We used to sing the tireless steed, bat now the steedless tire. So Otto bought an auto. ~o as not to be an- tique, But the thing was autocratic, As well as automatic, And the auto wouldn't auto as it ought to, so to speak. He thought to get au auto-operator for the work, And first he tried a circus man and then he tried a lurk, For he knew the circus man drove fifty horses with SUCCESS, And if a man be shifty Enough to m'~nage fifty, It's palpable enough he ough to manage one horse-less. As for the Turk, 'tin also plain, deny it It you ean~ He ought to run an auto, since a Turk's au Ottoman. i 'Twas all no use, so Otto moved to Alabama, purely i That he might say, "I'm Otto. From Mobile, and my motto: 'A Mobile Otto ought to run an auto-mobile surely.' " Then Otto sought to auto on the auto as hei ought to, But the auto sought to auto as Otto never thougbt to, 8o Otto he got hot, oh, very hot! a~ he ought not to, And Otto said, "This auto ought to auto, and it's got to," ' And Otto fought the auto, and the auto it fought Otto, Till the auto also got too hot to auto as It ought to. And then, Great Scottl the auto shot tel heaven~so did Otto~ Where Otto's auto autos now as Otto's auto~ ought to. Rough Riders Wanted. W, C. Gockett, secretary of the Sa- guache Stock Growers Association, is in receipt of a communication from the Mountain and Plain Festival directors. It is to the effect that they want to se- lect three of the best riders of the state for the Rough Rides q-ournament" to be held on Oct. 2nd. The following from the circular is self explanatory: "We want to select three men from each state furnished with the proper credentials. If we do not take these means of securing the riders that we want we fear that we will have more men here than we wish. We are anxious to have every man triad before he comes to Denver. "We will offer proper inducements to bring the riders that we will need. As premiums we will offer a belt that will be known as the Championship Rough Rider's Belt of the World; this belt will cost $300; besides six cash purses rang- ing from $150 down to $50. "We are also going to sel~ you to asnd us three of the worst bucking horses that can be found In your state. As in- ducements to get the horses here, we purpose to offer purses the same as above. "We have invited the organizations of 18 Western states and territories to uame three riders and three horses from each state. "It will be a great favor ff you will give us the names and addressas of three men whom you consider the best riders in your state, as we can take only three men from each state, and we want the very best. Tharefore, any reformation as to each rlder's qualifications will be appreciated. "Our commiit~ will select from the lists sent to them." Douglas vs Douglas.

A WORTHY SUCCESSOR. "Sol]3ethlng New Under The Sun." All Doctors have tried to cure CA- TARRH by the use of powders, acid gas- es, inhalers and drugs in paste form. Their powders dry up the mucuous mem- branes causing them to crack open and bleed. The powerful acids used in the inhalers have entirely eaten away the same membranes that their makers have aimed to cure while pastes and oint- ments cannot reach the disease. An old and experienced practitioner who has for many years made a close study and specialty of the treatmgnt of CATARRH, has at last perfected a treatment which when faithfully used, not only relieves at once but permanently cures CATAI~H by removing the cause stopping discharges and curing all in- flammation. It is the only remedy known to science that actually reaches the af- flicted parts. This wonderful remedy is known as "Snufflels",the Guaranteed Ca- tarrh Cure and is sold at the extremely low price of one dollar, each package containing internal and external medi- cine sufficient for a full month's treat- ment and everything necessary to its per- feet use. "Snuffles" is tbe only perfect catarrh cure ever made and is now recognized as the only safe and positive cure for that annoying and disgusting-disease. It cures all inflammation quickly and perma- nently and is also wonderfully quick to relieve hay fever or cold in the head. Catarrh, when n~glected often leads to consumption Snuffles will save you if you use it at once. It is no ordinary remedy. but a complete treatment which is posi- tively guaranteed to nure catarrh in any form or stage if used according to the di- rections which ac, eompaey each package. Don't delay but send for it at once, and write full particulars as to your condi- tions, and you will receive special ad- vice from the discoverer of this wonder- full remedy regarding your ease without cost to you beyond the regular price of "Snnffles" the Guaranteed Catarrh Cure.
