RAYNER'S BRILLIANT ADDRESS AWAKENS MUCH ENTHUSIASM Washington, Nov. 8.--The cIlmax of the Schley court of inquiry came on Wednesday afternoon, when Mr. Ray- nor ,the chief counsel for Admiral 8ehley, concluded a brilliant argument of over three hours with a peroration so eloquent and impassioned that all within the sound of his voice were pro. foundly touched. 2~ais remarkable trial, he said, sought to condemn the man who had brought to a success- ful termination as great a naval ln'l- umph as was ever won. In vivid col- ors he painted the picture of the Brook- lyn with Commodore Sehley on the bridge, fighting the entire Spanish fleet until the Oregon appeared out of the smoke. 'q'he thun~lers of the Brooklyn. mu- sic for the ears of his countrymen," he said, "aroused Admiral Schley'e en- vious foes." He pictured the victori- ous sailor suffering as few have suf. fered, for three long years, while the fires of persecution leaped around him, and now awaiting the hour of his vindication in the verdict of the court, "And when it comes." he concluded, • "he can. from the high and exalted po- sltlon that he occupies, look down his traducers and maligners, and excellent pride exclaim: "I care not for the venomous gossip of clubs, drawing rooms and cliques, and the Poisoned shafts of envy and malice. I await under the guidance of Divine Providence the verdict of posterity'." The scene in the court room as he finished with *,.hose words was thrill. The attendauce had been large all day, and ar the morning scsslon a lady had fainted from excitement. As Mr. I{ayner began his eulogy of Schley those in the audience. many of whom were ladies, leaned forward in their seats. The spell of his oratory was over them. and when he described the admiral's gallant deeds and the long persecution to which he had been subjected, many of them broke down and wept. The members of the court displayed evidences of emotion, and Admiral Schley himself was plainly moved. He s~t leaning back, with his hand~ behind his head. His chin twitched, and as his counsel said he could af- ford to await the verdict of posterity, two big tears rolled down his cheeks. He moved uneasily to conceal his emo- tion. and. under the pretence of ad- Justing his glasses, brfished the tears aside. For fully thirty seconds after Mr. tLayner closed there was not a sound. Then the session broke into a loud burst of applause. Admiral Dewey, after about half a minute, arose to remind the spectators that such a demonstration was out of place. A moment afterward the court adjourned, the Judge advocate plead- lag that lie could not well go on till next day. Then another remarkable thing happened. As soon as the gavel fell the entire audience surged forward to shake the hands of Admiral Schtey and Mr. Ray. nor. But the oncoming spectators fell back a moment as they sa~ Admiral Dewey and his two assls~qnts move around the ~able, as if by common im- pulse, and congratulate Admiral Schly and him eoun,el. Even Captain Lemly, the Judge advocate, came forward to Join in the congratulations` Then the public had Its tnnings, and for fifteen minutes after the court adjourned A-d- mlral Schley and Mr. Bayner were kept busy 'shaking bands. _ - : _ ~ _ - __ _ _ @ - -_ ~ - _ - _ _ . -- - IMMENSE SMELTER TO CRUMLEY NOT GUILTY BE BUILT AT SALIDA OF MURDERING STRONG Denver.

Denver, Nov. S.--A Republican spe- vial from Cripple Creek dated last night says: At 10:45 this evening the jury In the Grant Crumley trial brought in a ver- dict of not guilty. Crumley was for- mally discharged by the court and was immediately surrounded by his friends, who showered congratulations upon hlm. The arguments of attorneys were concluded at 6:30 this evening and the ease was given :to the JmT at 6:45. Prior to retiring the Jurymen paid a final visit to the scene of.the tragedy, the Newport saloon, which was cleared of customers and attendants for that purpose. On returning to the court room Judge Seeds gave them final In- structions. At the morning session Attorney Crowell. leading counsel for the accus- ed. "his friend and client," as he term.

Members of the colony In all parts of the West are iuvited. A movement is on foot to build strong retaining walls on both sides of ChezTy creek in Denver, the walls to extend from Colfax avenue to Arlington Park and to be paid for by the owners of adjacent real estate that would be benefilted by them. By the overturning of an automobile near Overland park tn Denver on the 7th instant, three ladies received pain- ful injuries. The ¢letims of the acci- dent were Mrs. N. K. Morris, Miss Anna Lewis and Miss Julia Campbell. Fortunately no l/hues were broken. Judge W. S. McElroy of Cripple Creek, who broke two of his ribs by falling over an embankment while walking fast to catch an electric car at Amteonda a few days ago, was at- tacked by pneumonia as a result of the accident and died on the 5th inst. The Western Passenger Association has granted a rate of one fare plus $2 for the triennial convention of the In- ternational Sunday School Association. which will be held in Denver June 26th to July 2nd, 1902. The convention is expected to bring more than 25,000 vis- itor:: to the state. Elmer, the eleven-year-old son of Greeley Draper of West Florence, was almast instantly killed on the 9th inst. He was playing ball with some c~m- panions, when one of them threw the ball at him, striking him on'the breast and causing a hemorrhage from which he died in eight minutes. The travel to Platte Canon resorts last summer broke all previous records The Colorado & Southern reports re- ceipts of $23,000 from this source in 1900, while the close of this year's tour- ist season showed receipts approxim- ately $31,000. The largest increase heretofore was twenty-five per cent. The preliminary hearing of Charles Taylor, charged with criminally as- saulting Pansy Burford, an eight-year- old girl, near Arkins last week, was held in Justice Gordon's court at Love* land, The defendant was bound over to the next term of the District Court, and in default of $2,000 ball was :':-~-: to the county jail at Fort Collins. Charles Taylor, said to have been re- cently released from the Canon City penitentiary, was caught a few days since near Arkins, in Larimer county, in the act of criminally assaulting Pansy Burford, eight years of age, and turned over to the sheriff by Clarence Smith and William Catlett, who over- taowered him after a hard struggle. The Grand Junction sugar factory started on the 7th instant. One hun- dred men and boys are employed and 350 tons of beets were sliced the first day. It was estimated that between 6.000 and 7.000 tons of beets were al. ready harvested and theft fully as much more would be brought to the factory' before the close of the season. Cresceus. the champion trotting borse, will trot in Pueblo at the State Fair ground track against hls own rec- ord November 21st, The previous date for the famous trotter's appeanance at Pueblo, November 7th. had been can- celled, and it was feared that it would be impossible to arrange for his ap- pearance in Pueblo. The occasion will be made a gala day by the Pueblo Driving Club. ~Phe Gray Reservoir Company has been incorporated by J. L. Gray, Ed- win Hull and G. Y¢. Bailey, to build resc-rvoirs in Latimer and Weld coun- ties and to take water for one reservoir from Box Elder creek. The company will. if occasion demands, take from the Cache La Poudre river any water which may b.,, due it for the construc- tion of the reservoir. The capitaliza~ ties is $10,000. The railroads of the state have granted a special rate of one and one- fifth fare to the annual meeting of the Colorado State Beekeepers' Asso- ciation and the annual hortleulturel convention. Tickets will be sold to enable the holders to reach Denver on November 18th or 20th and will he good three days after the close of each convention, not counting Sunday. Copies of the report of the commis- sioner of the general land office for the year ending June 30 last have been received at the Pueblo land off~ce and show that this office has maintained its place as the office doing the largest bnsiness~in the United States. During the firscal year ended June 30. 1900, the Pueblo land office did twenty-five per cent. of all the land office business of the government. At a meeting held in the office of Governor Orman a few days ago it was determined to at once advertise for a forty-acre or smaller tract of land on which to locate the State Home for Dependent and Neglected tohlldren, With the surplus of the legislative appropriation, estimated at $8,000, a first payment will be made and the next legislature will be asked to complete paying for the farm, At midnight on the 7th instant'work eloquent ceased at the Nlwot well on the Con- plea for acquittal.

The well was bored a depth charge of the state that the killing was of 3.000 feet through shale nnd stopped premeditated. Iie was followed byE. in a hard cap rock. The well was C. Stimson for the state, and while bored until the company was con. the eloquence of the attorney made out vinced that further boring was an a strong case, it was the consensus of ~ unprofitable venture. This is the see- opinion that he was absolutely fair to end well bored in this field to a depth beyond 1,600 feet and is the first dry well that has been bored. Work will be continued nearer Boulder. Two important conventions will be held in Denver during the present month. The Colorado State Beekeep- ers' Assoctatlon will hold its twenty- second annual session on November 18th, 19th and 20th, and the annual State Horticultural:convention will be held on November 20th, 21st and 22rid.

Elliott, the owner of the ranch, had missed Veney for some days, and in making a search for him, found the body in the well. It is sup- posed that he had an attack of heart failure and fell head foremost into the well. P. E, BROOKS, A CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESSMAN AT LARGE. Something over a year ago, when the question of selecting a candidate for Congress for the Second district of Col. Grade on tile Republican side caane up, ! the name of Mr. Franklin E. Bro~ks, of Colorado Springs, was mentioned. It was most favorably regorded, and ifI Mr. Brooks had been willing, he might have lmd the nomination. At that time, however, his business and pro- fessional interests were such that it was impossible for him to take the nomination, and it went ~manlmonsly to Mr. Hogg, who made an a t~gressive campaign and a good fight, in which Mr. Brooks helped. Since the last election, many friends have approached Mr. Brooks on the subject of becoming a candidate for the place of congressman at large be. fore the Republican convention next year. He has. had assurance of su.p- porz fronl divers sources, in various parts of the entire stale; and especially are the business and professional men of his own city glad that at last he has consented to the use of hls name in connection with this nomination. They feel that In him they have a candidate whom they can present to the conven. lion with pride and confidence. Mr, Brooks has lived •in Colorado Springs more than ten years, and is well known at the bar. and in educa- tional and business circles. He has taken an active part in polities as a Republican, and has always worked with the regular organization. While lie is a regular. It may be said timt he is not the kind of man who would ever wear any other man's collar, and that he stands for clean and honest politics ahvays. The announcement of the candidacy of Mr. Brooks was made a few days shlce in the Denver Republican. Since that time. the Evening Mail has inter. viewed some of the prominent men of that city concerning the matter, and to-day some of these opinions are pre- sented. They show in what regard Mr. Brooks is held by his neighbors and those who know hhn best, and out- line very clearly his standing in ~his community. Mr. h'ving ttowbert said of Mr. Brooks' candidacy: "This nnnpuncement comes at an oP- portune time. It is falr notlce to the rest of the state that El Paso count:~ has a candidate for the place of con- gressman at large next year. ~ffhis county has been a Republican county always, and has been generally recog- nized as the staunchest Republican county in the state. It has never had a candidate for Congress since Colo- rado beeame a state. It seems to me that it is entirely proper that such a candidate stmuld come forward now. The county has always given loyal support to the Republican candidates for Congress in its district, and has never asked for the nomination. I be- lieve it will be generally acknowledged that we have a right to ask for the nomination for one of our men. "As for Mr. Brooks pel,-sonally, he Is a remarkably good candidate, tie is a good lawyer, he has taken an active part in politics, and he is in touch, as few lawyers are. with the business in. terests of the state. He is active and energetic, a hard worker and a man of great ability. I heartily indorse his candidacy." Mr. A. G. Sharp, cashier of the Ex- change National Bank, spoke as fol- lows: "I can't speak from a polltlcal stand- point, for I am no politician; but I can I say something from the standpoint of a nmn of business. Mr. Brooks is a leading attorney, and I have had a good deal of business both with him and with his clients, lie is a shrewd and careful business man. who con. ducts his own affairs well; and he is ,levoted t.o the interests of his clients. A good many of these have had deal- ings with the bank, and I know that Mr. Brooks looks after them closely. Now. my idea is that a man who can and does do that would make a good member of Congress. I tilink he would look after the interests of his constitu- ents there as he looks after the inter- ests of his clients here: and a very large part of the duty of a congress- man. as I understand it. is to attend to business. He may make speeches once tu a while, anti of course he studies great Eublie questions and knows something of politics; but after all. a great deal of his work is really business, and I think Mr. Brooks is ex- ceptionally well qualified in this re- spect to represent the state at Wash* lngton. So far as abilffy |s concerned, I regard hhn as the peer of the ablest men in the state, and it need not be said that lm is a nmn of absolute Integ- rity and a fine sense of honor. I think he would make one of the best repre- sentatives In Congress Colorado has ever had." Hen. Ira tIarris, who was for six years Judge of the District Court, says of Mr. Brooks: "You cannot say anything too good about hhn. He is a first-rate candidate in every sense of the word, H~ is a strong Republican, and always has been; he is not only in sympathy with the party, but has been a worker, and helped it actively to win the victories it has won in this county. He Is ex- ceptionally able, remarkably energetic, and a man of culture and breadth of view. We could not put forward a bet- ter marl as the representative of El Paso county In the race for the nomi- nation: and I feel that this County, if it should speak decidedly, would com- mand the respect of the other counties in this matter. It has been from time immemorial one of the banner Repub- lican counties of the state, and while It has a candidate on the state ticket occasionally, it has never pressed lts claims for office. We should have an advantage In presentlng to the state convention the name of a man who IS strong in this stronghold of Republi- canism." President Slocum, of Calorado Col- lege, was enthusiastic in his reception of the announcement, He said: "All good citizens will take great. satisfaction In the thought of sending such a man as Mr. Brooks to Congress. His education and experience have fit- ted him for the position, and with his keen know/edge of public affalr~ his uprightness of character and strength of moral purpose, he is Just the kind of man that I should ta~e the greatest pleasure in having represent our state { at Washington. It is a very good thing that such men as Mr. Brooks are willing to undertake the burdens and duties of the position." FARMING MATTERS. The Greatest Industry. In bulletin No. 33 of the National Live Stock convention, Secretary Mar- tin magnifies the calling of stock rais- ers in this country as follows: During the past fifty years there have been many conventions hell in the United States representing the en- tire industry of the wealth and prog- ress. But the first great congress of the twentieth century, the fifth annual convention of the National Live Stock Association, representing the entire in- dustry lu this nation, which will as- semble in Studebaker's theater, Chi- cago, Illinois, on December 3d, will represent as much enterprise ahd more money than any gathering of men ever before assembled on the globe. In 1850 the total value of the live stock of every state tn the Union was less than $1,200,000,000; to-day It is $4,- 555,827.375. a sum incomprehensible to the mind of man. In the year named there were but 17.000,000 cattle, 21,- 723,220 sheep, 4.89#3,*050 horses and mules. To-day the figures are ,50,602,. 414 cattle. 15,623,551 horses and mules and 50,20~,000 sheep. Then the grade of this stock, except In some sections of the extreme East. was of the scrub order, which grew and ran wild upon the pastures. To-day no finer Mood nor more lmproved methods can be found than in the United States. The magnitude of this industry can only be comprehended by comparison. All stock yard companies, commission ex- changes and a large per cent. of the freight Income of all transportation companies being nearly incident to and dependent upon the efforts of the Live stock growers and feeders, which term embraces avery farmer In the Union. Live stock and cereals are the same as cash in hand. Were the former converted into cash it would take ev- ery dollar in circtflation in the United States, and then the commlss|on man would have to borrow more than $2,- 225,000,000 from foreign banks to liqui- date the bill. The cereal crop of the country is valued at $2,025,116,545, yet the llve stock is worth more fTmn all the cereals, metals, cotton, lumber, su- gar and tobacco combined. The live stock men could buy the stock of every national and private bank in the United States and England, and then have millions of money left. They could own all the stock yards and packing houses in the country and have a surplus of more than a bilUon dollars. They could establish a stock yards company as large as the Union Stock Yards and Transit Company of Chicago in thirty-three cities, with a capital of $30,000,000 each, and one in every city In the Union as large as Helena. Montana. each with a capital of $14,220,000. They could build three transcontinental railway lines from the Atlantic to the Pacific and have left $750,000,000 for a reserve fund. They cotfld own every steel works and smelter in America or Europe and have a billion dollars left to ~urchase ore with• They could control every oceanic transportation company in the world and have left a sufficient sum to run them for ten years without taking in a single dollar• There are 8,000,000 of these noble- men in the United States. If they were to become so united upon political matters as to vote as a unit they could elect every officer in the nation from the President to the mos~, humble back- woods road overseer. ~here is abso- lutely no limit to the pc~tdbilittes of t~nese men if they should Collectively divert their force and influence in any direction. This, the greatest industry of the country, will hold its fifth annual con- vention on the date and place already stated. There will be several bills ap- proved by them which the incoming Congress will be asked In no uncertain tones to pass• Every delegate, there- fore, should attend every session com- mencing at 9:30 a. m., and permit no other affairs to interfere with this duty. All railroads have made a round trip rate of one fare, plus $2. The citizens of Chicago are making extensive preparations to entertain all delegates and vis4tors, and cordially invite all interested m be their guests during the week of December 2d. Sug~tr igeets In Color~do. Three million dollars represents the value of beet sugar produced In Colo- rado during 1901. says the Denver Re- .publlcan. The value and magnltude'of this new industry to the state can readily be seen when it Is |~emembered that this total does not reckon In the expenditure of money for beets and the wages paid to employes• Again the majority of owners of factories expect to double the capaclty of their plants next year. The result in a few years is obvious. * "The beet sugar industry will be a close rival of mining in thls state, without a doubt. If the present remark- able rate of progress keeps up," said C. S. Mercy to a Republlcan reporter. "No one can appreciate the magnitude of the thing unless he has seen, as I saw Saturday, the unloading of thous- ands of tons of beets at the factgry "and the process which finally resoled the beets into sugar. "As near as I can learn, the approxi- mate production of the four sugar beet factories now in oi3peration in Colorado will be 300.000 tons, divided as follows: Loveland 7.000. Grand Junction 25,000, Sugar City 125,000, Rocky Ford 75,000. At five cents a pound, this represents the value of this total as $3,000,000. "It can clearly be seen what this means to Colorado; how many hun- dreds of thousands of dollars will be kept within the state that would other- wise.find their way outside. The prod- uct o.f the four factories will be practi- cally 2,000,000 p~unds of sugar. Half of this will be exported, the rest wiql be consumed here." l]est ]B~t~ed of Cows.
