OCTOBER i0, ig01. Kind Words From Our Friends. We have received many kind compli- meats on the first issue of the CRY.SCEnT under our management, not only from the people of Siguaohe, but also from friends in other parts of the state, for which wa feel very thankful and much gratified. We have not yet been able to make all the improvements in the paper that we have under consideration and we holm soon to still further better it, both in looks and in value aa a country newspaper. We may suffer many disap- pods/manta before the paper becomes the ideal newspaper that we have in mind, and po~ibly we may fall in our ambition, #t " " but It is prmseworthy to even attempt a great good." The New Revenue Law. The Supreme Court, District Judge Dixon, the Governor, Attorney General, and state board of assessors, are becom- ing so tangled up over the new revenue law with their injunctions, writl of pro- hibition, man-dam-us-co, contempts of court and disbarment proceedings, that a Philadelphia lawyer will not be able to straighten them out after awhile. And still the citizens of Colorado are going along making money and enjoying them- aslvss just as though there were no courts or state officials. The whole matter has been put off by the Supreme Court until next Monday. Will President Roosevelt Act? We are not running a"yellow journal," but we cannot help suggesting that I,resident Roo~velt already has a chance to distinguish himpelf, and at the same time save the kind hearted people of this country something like $100,000, and an old maid missionary from death or mar. rlage to a Turkish brigand. The former, probably, if she is as homely ae the news- paper pictures make her out to be. It the president takes our advice he will immediately proceed to dispatch the neer~t fleet of war ships, with a regi- ment of rough riders, to Turkey, and capture the Sultan, his court and harem, and if Miss Stone is not found among the captives, she will no doubt be produced free of charge, upon a word from the Sultan. We owe the Turks uo money, or good will, either. Governor Orman has issued a procla. marion making Salida a city of the sec- ond ola~. We have had to drop out about two columns of railroad and other outside ad- vertisements thin week to make room for our reading matter. Over 800 national banks-have been Or- ganized under the new national bank law, many of them in towns that neV~ had the convenience of a bank before. Governor Odell, of New York, has re. fused to conmder petitions to commute Czolgesz's sentence to life imprisonment, presented to him by eastern socialists. L --. . The Supreme Court of Kansas has de- cided that although saloons in Kansas are declared by statute to be public nuiasno~, it does riot justify their de- struction by ady person without process of law. Dave Day is grooming C. A. Johnson for congre~ If Charley runs for con- Irresa like/~e did wheh his wife got afar him with a 6-shoot~ there can be no questloj about the oa~ome.~Antonita Ledger. Fairbanke, county clerk of Sa- guache county, has purchased the Sa- guaohe CRmso~l~r and takes charge this w~k. Lss has mlmy friends in Gunni- son county who ~ to see him prosper in the journalistic fleld.--G~uun/aon Re- publi0an. O.D. Bryan who has published the Bonanza Bee for come mouths, announces that he has cold the paper to Fairbanks & Rockwell. This paper has been among the best edited of the rural ~rees in Colorado and is a valued exchange.~ Colorado Springs Gazette. The forests of Saguache c~mnty have luckily escaped any bad tires so far this mmson, and as moisture is now falling in the mountains in the way of both rains and snows, we will probably not have any sueb destructive forest fires as have visited other portions of the state. In the counties heard from up to date the proce~ of the Democratic party swallowing its former allies seems to be going on satisfactorily to the party doing the swallowing.--Graphic. It looks as though the order will be reversed in this county, and that the I)emocrat~ may be swallowed, POLITICAL POINTERS. Three County Conventions To Be Held Before Our Next Issue-.Some Chuuges In Candidates. The political outlook has changed somewhat from last week. As the time for the conventions draws near matters appear to be getting down to a more set- tled basis, but notwithstanding this fact, we prophecy a lively time in the old town next Saturday. The Democrats and Popuhsts will hold their conventions on Saturday, and the Republicans on Monday following, and the campaign will be in full blast next week. The situation in the Republican ranks has not materially changed from what wan reported last week, with the excep- tion that a new candidate is a possibiLi- ty for Superintendent, and there may be some opposition to another candidate who was supposed to have a walk-a-way in the convention. Dr. Shippey, of Villa Grove, will probably be a candidate for coroner to succeed himself. It looks now as though a part of the Democrats and a part of the Populists will be able to form a fusion, out whether or not they will be able to bring the rank and file--the voters~of the two parties together, is another matter. Tommy Lyons, who was mentioned as acandidate for assessor on the Populist ticket, has declined to accept the honor. E. W. Garretson, of Crestone, it is said would like the nomination for either as- sessor or treasurer on a fusion ticket. Uncle Johnny Wills, of Center, would also be satisfied with either of these places if the plum happened to fall to to him. It looks as though the main fight would center on sheriff, between Bob Monteith and Dick Mooney. This is an office that former officials have t~ld us many times that it did not pay, but there are always plenty of candidates for the place. Bob Buckley seems to be the only candidate who is trying for the clerkship in opposition to the Republi- cans, but there may be others. J.W. Beery will be a candidate for county supt. in the Democratic convention. Next week we will give you the names of the candidates on all of the tickets, and also a full report of the convention. DEMOCRATIC DELEGATES. We have not been able to get returns from all the precincts, but we give them to you so far as heard from. John E. Ashley will represent Park- ville, Jack Holden is a delegate from the Upper Saguache. I. Stephenson and W. H. Hiner from Elkhorn precinct. Pete Sheridan, Mike Funk and Win. M. Brashear from Center. Dan Davidson and Elmer Murphy were elected in Cotton Creek precinct. Thee. P. Goodman, a wheel.horse Dem- ocrat will probably represent Sargenta precinct. J. A. Hall was unanimouly elected a delagate in Russell Springs precinct, but of course Dr. Werner will attend the convention. Herbert Ellis, W. H. Lillard and W. J, Southy were selected to represent Bo- nanza, at a caucus held in that precinct, The delegates elected in Crestcne pre- cinct areJ. C. Boles, J. M. Lawrence Frank Melvin, A. Sievert and J. A. O'Brien. Two caucuses were held in Lower Sa- guache precinct, and two delegates were elected, Frank Brown and Ab Ashley. They are entitled to but one. At the Democratic caucus held in thig precinct last Saturday night, J. B. Mor- gan was chairman, and J. W. Davidson, secretary. John Lawrence, J. M. Ellis and J. W. Beery were elected delegates. M. S. Dentou was nominated for justice of the peace, and James B. Fullertcn for constable. All harmonious. John Sanderson, of Biedell, will prob- ably be a delegate to one of the conven- tions, Guess which? Democratic County t~onvcnuon.

Frank Kcough was troubled with his eyes a part of last week and went over home on Friday. Eva Adair spent Suuday at home in the41 country, going and coming with Roy. Butler. Some new and much needed shelving has been placed in the physical labora- tory.

A ~ame of foot ball will be played on Saturday, at 10 a. m. between Saguaohe and Del Norse. This game was postpon- ed from last Saturday. Tbe Del NorSe team will have to be entertained by Saguache, hence it is nec- sssary to charge a small fee. There will also be a game between the Saguaehe and De] Norte basket ball teams. COURT HOUSE NEWS. County Judge Bryan is spending the week in Denver. County Treasurer Jewell is expected kome today from a trip east with a ship- ment of lambs. The assessment on railroads and other corporations in the county, as furnished by the state board of assessors, amounts to $2,302,690 this year as against $507,995 last year. A pretty big raise, but the tax payars of the county will probably not kick as it ought to very materially lower their taxes, if the as- sessment as made by the state board is not changed. Sheriff Williams went to Denver Sat- urday with the girl who was last Friday sentenced to the state industrial school for girls by the county judge. Remember that District Court this month will convene on the ~th Monday, the 28th. There will be a much smaller number of oases on the district court docket this month than there was in June. The registration books were mailed last Saturday, and the Registry Boards are to meet next Tuesday for first regis- tration day. The commissioners have contracted i with Mrs. John F. Williams to take charge of the Fellows triplets until other homes can be found for them, for which she is to receive $3 per week. The county commissioners on Tuesday changed the east line of Saguaohe pre- cinct one mile further east than the old line, thereby taking in the families of Argo Taylor, Wm. Woodard and J. E. Mitchell, who formerly were voters in Lower Saguache precinct. The commissioners will meet next Tuesday as a board of equalization to hear and consider complaints from those parties raised on their assessment. The commissioners on Wednesday ap- pointed John T. Duncan, judge of elec- tion in Duncan precinct, in the place of H.E. Smder resigned and Albert Hen- sen in place of J. W. Stambaugh, re- moved from precinct. The board of equalization having gone through all the schedules without making any changes, again takes them up. It is de-i cided to classify the land in each water district according to the water right at- tached to the land as near as possible, Land under ditches from 1 to 10 inclu- sive shall be assessed as let class, at 89 per acre, from 11 to 16 inclusive, 2nd class at $7 per acre and from 17 to 26 inclusive, 8rd class at $5 per acre.
