SAGUACHE CRESCENT. VOL. XXI. NO. ¢6. COUNTY NEWS NOTES. Furnished By Oar Correspondents And Clipped From Exchanges. Gunnison Tribune. Mr. Perry, the Upper Cochetopa ranchman, was purchasing goods in Gunuison this week. H.C. Lucas, the Iris mining man, was in the city yesterday. He hopes to have the Mingral Hills property working again in the near future. There is no reason why that mine should not be a paying proposition at the present time. G. W.~Kooglo was in town from Iris Wednesday, He says there were twenty votes east in that precinct of Saguache county and the result was mixed. Both republican and democratic candidates carried it, according to the popularity of the various aspirants. Moses Herald. i-leery and Charles Thompson have bonded their claims on Sand Creek to the Blanca Mutual for $4,000. Sallie Warren and a cousin from Kan. came in Sunday evening and went out to the Warren ranch to stay a while. According to reports but one democrat is elected in Saguaohe county aud that it E. O. Stewart, a constable in the 41 country. Peter Trugillo, who was badly injured at Gea. Clark's ranch Monday by being run over by a horse while on the round- up, is recovering. J. C. Hammond and family went through Hooper Monday, moving from Cottonwood to Alamosa, where they will take charge of the Inter Ocean Hotel. Crestone Minor. Mrs. Chu. Creger, sister of Mrs. H. A. Imrd departed for Salida Wednesday. A new contract will be given Monday for another I00 fe~t on the Banner tun- nel. They are now in over 450 feet. Mrs. H. A. Lord and little son will spend the winter in Denver. The doctor feels lonesome but says he will eat Thanksgiving turkey with them. The Garfield put on a force of ten min- ers Friday morning and will increase the force as fast as room can be made for them. This property has a great future. Whoa the local democrats "jump on" Judge J. C. Boleg for not being a good Thomas Jefferson democrat, they are "barking up the wrong tree." The folds of the republican party are open Judge, and you are welcome. Center Dispatch. The repairing of the Farmer's Union ditch is completed and now it is carry- ing watar. Mnrried,--Walter Justus to Miss Ruth Birdwell, Wednesday eve., Nov. 6, at Sa- guache, W. W, McUoy and family are talking of leavfffg Center for the winter and move near Denver. Mrm. Dean Noffsinger who has been quit pogrly lataly is compelled to go to slower altitude. With her parents she expects to go to Pueblo. They will leave this week. There were money orders issued at the post ol~oe in Center during the month of October to the amount of $1,084.65. This shows what business is carried on in a little inland post office like tnis. J. L. Hurt returned from the Gunni- son country last week with cattle. With his sow punchers, Mr. Hurt arrived at the Biede]l ranch with 1,000 head, after having shipped about 400 head to Pu- eblo. It was quite cold crossing the range but they say it only snowed about two inches where they were. Mr. Hurt will place most of his cattle on stubble fields hers in the valley for the winter. A Deserted Mining Camp. In the last issue of the Gunnison Tri- buns we notice the following regardin~ the town of Chance, which is just over the line in Ounnison county from Iris. Many of our people will remember the camp in its boom days some five or six ~,ears ago, and several of them helped to build the town, residing there and pros- peoted and mined iu that vicinity: "With this week the post office at 0hanee will be only a remembrance. John Weir, who has been acting in the c~pacity of postmaster, and in fact the only citizen of the place, announces that his doqrs are to close. He will remove to Irlsand relieve E~ E Elliott. Uncle Sam's representative there, who also runs a store in connection with the post- OffiOo. Mr. ElIiott says Iris ie not liv,dy enough:for him and he will movotoLako City. The passing of Chance recalls the activity of that camp only five years ago when tha Lucky Strike and Only Chance were pouring out their wealth of gold bullion. ~he little town was very lively and an excellent future was predicted for It. But like many other mining camps, theyare made aud deserted in a day. Chance was unfortunate, because almost Bince its two mines were discovered they have been mixed up in litigation and the uwners, it is said, becoming discouraged have closed them both indefinitely. Thus must Chance suffer on account of strife and dissension, yet she will live again mama day in the not distant future." SAGUACHE, COLORADO, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1901. WHOLE NUMBER 1086. We Ting Fang, the Chinese minister at Washington, has been recalled by his government. It seems that he was be- coming too familiar with our people to suit the rulers of his country. The extensive mercantile firm of H. Shifter & Bro. of the San Luis valley shipped 5,000 lambs to the river market last week. There was no especial call for them at home and they had to be railroaded, as the Shifters are not ranch- ' men and acquired the stock over the cou[~tor.--Field and Farm. The British government has leased a farm at Lathrop, Kansas, as preparatory headquarters for horses to 1~ exported to South Africa. From 200 to 500 animals are assembled at these quarters and go through the process of inoculation before shipment to New Orleans, from which port they embark for Cape Town. The vaccination is supposed to develop any latent disease that may afflict an animal and renders it immune. " The Twentieth Century lode at Iris, a relocation of the Lakota, is to be dove]p- od this winter by Koogle and Fairbanks. who bane commenced a shaft about 100 feet north of the old workings which are something like 150 feet deep. In that vicinity the granite is heavily impreg- nated with free gold and thorough pros- pecting ought to reveal the vein from which the precious metal was thrown out. The owners anticipate getting cap- ital to assist them in the enterprise.-- Gunnison Tribune. • New Smelter at Salida. Ground has been broken for the new smelter to be erected by the Ohio and :Colorado Smelting and Refioing com- pany at Salida. The site selected is on the Arkansas river, two miles from the city. The plant will have a capacity of 1,200 tons and will embody the most modern appliances for treating low grade as well as high grade ore. Construction will be carried on rapidly and the plant will be ready to handle ores by the first of next May. The company is capitaliz- ed at $3,000,000 and is independent of the trust.

F. Campbell. We have been requested to publish the following extended obituary of H.F. Campbell, the grandfather of the Gee. P. Ellis children, a notice of whose death we had in the CRF~UC~,NT tWO weeks ago. This obituary notice is taken from a Cedar Falls, Iowa, newspaper: "Hiram Francis Campbell, who died suddenly last Thursday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Gee. W. tIughes, was born in Ohio in 182~, He was own cousin to James G. Blaine, and his moth- er dying when he was three yeays old he went to Mrs Blaine's home where he lived until he was 20 years old, the play- mate and companidn of his distinguished cousin. Mr. Campbell cHne to Iowa in 1866. living near Webster City until four years ago, since which time he has made his h~me in Ced~u' Falls. He had not been well for six weeks, and his daugh- ter.in-law, Mrs. Camphell. of Webster City, was assisting Mrs. Hughes in car ing for him. He was not considered ser- iously ill, however, and the day before his death sat up for some time. When the neuralgic pain touched his heart he ~went Ioo quickly to have even the morn-i bers of the family summoned. Four children survive, Mrs Gee. W. Hughes, i or this city, Messrs. A. L. and Francis Campbell of Webster City .nd J, B,J Cmq,hell, of Fairmont, Minn. Triers were present at the foneral Mr. John Hughes of Sioux City and Mr. Stephen Murphy of Webster City.

The relatives accompanied the remains to Webster City where burial took place." ADJOINING COUNTIES, Doings Among Our Neighbors Of Inter. eat To Crescent Readers. Salida Mail. Filed For Record.

S. Boughton left yesterday for business visit to Sargents of several days duration. Mrs. G. W. Means and little daughter, of Villa Grove, came over Saturday and were the guests of T. H. Brown and fam- ily over Sunday. J. M. Staley, of Hooper, a brother of D. A. and Wesley Staley, who are parties to the new state bank about to be estab- lished in Salida, was taken to the hospi- tal last Thursday where he is now being treated for sQme chronic stom~h trouble Monte Vista Journal. The Saguache populists did not know fusion was dead and had to be shown. Many of the populists in this county voted the republican ticket Tuesday, the more effectually to kill fusion wi~h democracy. W. S. Wintermute and family moved to Csnter Thursday where Mr. Winter- mute has charge of T. A. Brashear's mammoth general store. In Saguaehe a fusion between the populists and democrats was effected but in that county fusion had already bess dead a whole year and could not be again brought to life. The matter of looking after the beet sugar industry has been placed m the hands of John McArthur, R. B. Wallace and J. A. Kelley. Everybody who has any suggestions to offer should corres- pond or confer with this committee. .Alamosa Journal. There appears now to be nothing in the way of the location of the beet sugar factory at Alamosa. Experts will go over the ground and when their report is made the question will be decided defi- nitely. W. A. Braiden loaded 2600 head of sheep at Moffat last Saturday and took them to Alamosa where they were trans- ferred to seven standard guage cars and shipped to Greeley for winter feeding. They were bought near Saguache. " As an indication of how confident real estate owners in Alamosa feel about the location of the sugar factory and the projected railroad improvements, prop- erty on Main street has advanced 50 to 100 per cent. Along with other promises of great de- velopment in and about Alamosa comes the announcement, as yet unofficial, that the Denver & Rio Grands railroad is to build a large new depot and make other great improvements at this point to pro- vided facilities for the heavy business which will follow the widening of the narrow guage line to SantaFe. The mak- ing of this standard guage road to Santa Fe, with its connection§ with El Paso and California, will place Alamosa on a transcontinetal main line. Hooper Press. We knew Robert Buckley would carry hie own precinct. A cup of coffee and a sandwich wins out every time in this community. Mrs. J. W. Beery, of Saguache, sad J. N. Sanders, her brother, spent the latter part of the week waiting at the home of Mrs. T. E. Seaton. The Center Dispatch has just found out that the new town of Liberty has in the person of John Norviel a citizen that !believes in expansion. School district No. 29, Saguache coun- ty, first month just closed, number of pupils enrolled 12, average attendance i0 4 5, per cent of attendance 95. J. N. Norviel, teacher. While the stockholders of the Farmer's Union ditch are sleeping, those of the Prairie ditch company are exerting themselves trying to devise ways and means for building a reservoir. Judge W. R. Pyke leaves in a few days for Silverton. He and the Kinney boys have bonded and leased a mine over there that will without doubt make them millionaires ere the roses bloom again. Here's success to ' you and graciously given, for the judge has given to under- stand that he will tske the Press plant off our hands so that, we may invest in Arehuletta county oil stocks and also be- come owners of great wealth. Election gesults in Valley Counties. In Saguache county the republicans elected every candidate, except a consta- ble in Crestone precinct. In Conejos and Costatia oonntie.~ the republicans and democrats put up the same candi- dates anti o.F coarse elected them. In Rio Grande the republicans elected every~hmg but supt. of schools. M', Carpenter, the, fusion c:,ndidat,-, was ~, third terser, and had a woman candi- date against him, but pohties did ,~t,t seem toeut much figure for this offi'e, ae it should not. In Mineral county there was a fusion of populists aud re- publicans against the demnerats, and they elected only the candidate for commissioner, a district. October 23. No. 35416. Robert Moltun to C.
