NOVEMBER ±4:, ±90t. I. N. Stevens, of the Colorado Springs Gazette, is giving the republicans of the state some good advice these days, and incidentally a few doses of "hot shot." W. J.'Arkell, of Colorado Springs, has been.appointed by the president inspec- tor of customs for Colorado. He is prob- ably one of I.N.Stevens' recommendation• We arecompelled to run two extra pages this week, making a ten page pa- per, in order to accommodate the delin- quent tax list and not cut down our usual supply of reading matter. The Pagosa Land, Oil and Coal com- pany have struck another flow of oil in its well and experts say a good well is now assured. A big stream of hot water is flowing from the works and is heavily coated with a good quality of oil. It is estimated that the four mill levy for state purposes on the assessed valua- tions this year will produce a $400,000 ,urplus over and above the appropria- tions for the year. But a surplus is much euier wiped out than a defloency. Franklin E. Brooks, a well knowp at. torney of Colorado Springs, has announc- ed his candidacy for congress from Colo- rado at large, and it is said has already received pledges of support from many of the leading men of the republifan party of the state. Chairman Ford, of the republican state central committee, has appointed a com- mittee of thirteen, one from each judicial district, to formulate a set of rules to govern the party m Colorado. Judge C. {3. Holbrook is a member of the commit- tee from thin district. The election of Lysight as clerk of Teller county may be contested on the charge of violating the law. It ig said that he made a $30 bet on the result of the election. If every man who violates the election law was kept out we would have no one to fill the offices. Sid Boughton, at one time a Saguache politician, but who is now in business at Salida, spent election day in Sargents in the interest of the candidates on the late fusion ticket. It is a significant fact that Sargents gave the republicans a majority, the first time for many years. All but a few of the counties of Colo- rado, which used to be republican, re- turned to the republican line in this" week's election. That means Frank C. Goudy for governor next fall and a wip- ing out of the scandals which have been disgracing the state of late years.~Ala- mcea Journal. President Roosevelt looks to congress to break the power of trusts, and will urge in his message legislation at the coming session to so amend the Sher- man anti-trust law as to make it oper- ative. Amendments to the interstate commerce laws also may be made to curb oombinatiops of capital. In formulating that part of his mes- sage relating to irrigation, President Roosevelt, it ia believed, will follow the views of practical Western men whose opinions upon this subject have been sought by him and this course, taken in connection with his knowledge of the subject, will serve to give his recom- mendations great weight in congress. " The Political Situation. The past election does not prove con- clusively that the republicans are in the majority in the county, but that there are alarge number of independent voters, who pay more attention to the personality of the candidates, and the conditions of their candidacy, than they do to party, espeeially in local elections. Take for example the election of two years ago, for county officers, which gave most of the republican ticket over 300 majority. Last year it went democratic by about the same majority. And republican again this year. It shows that a fusion between any two parties just to beat the other party, made by conventions or committees, is unpopular and does not tend to influence the voter to support the ticket. It also shows that an officer who has served one term to the satisfac- tion of the people, is hard to beat for the second term, as the vote of Supt. Palmer and other candidates proves. In the election next year conditions will be entirely different again. There will be a full state ticket to elect, a com- missioner, and what is more important, a representative and state senator, who will help elect a United States senator. Of course the county has little to say as to who will be the candidates for state sfficers, but our people may Select the candidates for the state assembly, and if the republicans wish to carry the coun- ty next year they must select their can- didates wisely. There are plenty of men in the county wl~o would fill these offices with honor and ability, and we believe there ought to be several-candidates for each office• We will suggest shortly the names of several republicans who can be elected if nominated. gonstitntional Amendments. Among the several amendments to the state constitution to be submitted to a vote of the people next fall is one provid- ing that all county elections shall be held at the same time with general elections for state officers. In case the amendment is adopted there will be an election hut every two years after 1904, and thecoun- ty officers elected this fall will hold office for three years. We will publish a full text of these amendments some time during the year, and will also comment on the good and bad features of each one aa we think for the beet interests of the people of the county and state, so that all our readers may know just what they will be asked to vote for or against. Our columns will always be open for a dis- cussion of the amendments, by those who do or do not agree with our conclu- sions on the subject, and we invite al} who are posted, to avail themselves of the opportunity of trying to enlighten the voters when the time arrives. The switchmen on the Rio Grands went out on a strike last Friday. There are only about 130 of them, and the places most effected are Dewar, Pueblo, Salida and Alamosa. With the assist- ance of train crews and other ample}sea the tracks are being kept cleared so that there ia not much delay in running pas. senger trains. An English• Author Wrote. "No shade, no shine, no fruit, no flowers, no leaves.--November." Many Americans would add no freedom from catarrh, which is so aggravated during this month that it becomes constantly troublesome. The~e is abundant proof that catarrh is a constitutional disease. It is related to scrofula and consumption being one of the wasting diseases. Heeds Sarsaparilla has shown th tt what is cap- able of eradicating scrofula, completely cures catarrh and taken in time prevents consumption. We cannot see how any sufferer can put off taking this medicine, in view of the widely published record of its radical and permanent curse~ It is undoubtedly America's greatest medi- cine for America's greatest disease-- catarrh. J Mount McKinley, also known as Mount Massivo~ ie the highest mountain in Colorado. There is considerable con- troversy going on over the question of the highest peak in the state. Mount Blanca has been generally accepted as The Official Canvas. On Monday the County Clerk, assisted by Justices Birt Clare and Andrew Forbes, made the official canvas of the returns of the election hem on Nov. 5. We publish this week the vote as shown by said canvas. Some Changes were made in nearly every precinct from -the figures given last week, but no changes in the final result• Following is a list of the county el]t- cars elected, all being republicans, to- gether with their majorities: County Clerk--John W.

Crestone qast the largest vote of any precinct in the county, 371, a gain of about 100 over last year and about 325 over two years ago. Saguache cast 257 votes, the largest number ever polled in the precinct. Biedell is the smallest precinct with It votes tallied, though the poll book shows i the names of but 13 voters. Embargo is the next smallest, with 17 votes. This ?recinct, as well as Union H~ll, shows quite a decrease from the vote a few. years ago. Also EIRhorn precinct ahows i a gradual decrease every year. The total vote cast is the largest in the history of the county, 1949. Last year it was 1856, and two years ago 1385. ~z A ~VORTHY SUCCESSOR. "8omething New Under The Sun." All Doctors have tried to cure CA- TARRH by the use of powders, acid gas- es, inhalers and drugs m paste form. Their powders dry up the mucuoua mem- branes causing them to crack open and bleed. The powerful acids used m 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 treatment of CATAt~RH, has at last perfected a i treatment which when faithfully used, not only relieves at once but permanently cures CA I'ARH 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 GuaranteedCa- tarrh Cure and is sold at the extremel) low price of one dollar, each paokag~ containing internal and external medt. cine sufficmnt for a full month's treat. ment and everything necessary to its per- fect use. "Snuitiea"is the 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 neglected.often leads to Bright's Disease. The largest sum ever paid for a pre- scription, changed hands in San Fran- cisco, August 30, 1901• The transfer in- volved in coin and stock $112,500.00 sad was paid by a party of business men for :. a specific for Bright's Disease and Dia- betes, hitherto incurable diseases. ~ They commenced the serious investi- gation of the specific Nov. 15,1900. They I i~ interviewed scores of the cured and tried ~I it out on its merits by putting over 3 i~I dozen cases on the treatment and watch- ing them. They also got physicians to J name chronic, incurable cases, and ad- ministered it with the physicians for judges.
