NOVEMBER 2i, ig01. NOTE AND COMMENT. It is being persistently rumored that Senator E. O. Wolcott has been offered a cabinet position by President Roosevelt, and that Postmaster General Smith will Joon retire, Mr. Wolcott taking his place. We are of the opinion that the rumor iJ unfounded. In the first place we do not believe the president has offered him a position, aud in the second place we believe that the senator is out of politics and that he would not take the position if offered to him. During the late campaign we heard a good deal of talk about the bills of one of our candidates during his first term in office. Some people talk as if he ought to have been beaten because he drew from the county all that the law al- lowed him in payment for the faithful performance of his official duties. They did not seem to take into consid oration that if some one else had been elected in his place he would do the same thing, which is no mote than right. But the result of the election shows that the majority of voters are willing that a public official shall be paid his right dues, and that because he takes it is no reason why he should be turned out and another put in. This candidate received as many votes as anyone on either ticket. The way that campaigns have been conducted in this county ever since the days of Otto Mears, when it is said to have cost him $15,000 to be elected a repr~ntative to the state assembly, is rather disgusting to the average citizen, and momewhat discouraging to the poor man wbo aepirem to public office. As soon ae a man is nominated for office he is considered good and rightful "picking" for every Tom, Dick and Harry. Those who never work, and some that do; some who have influence, and all who have none. Many of his friends 'whom he never would have thought it of, turn '*grafters," and his leg is pulled--yes both legs, for all he is worth, and some- times for all that he can borrow. Fre- quently candidates are nominated for no other reason than that they have a "bar- rel." It is high time that a change was made in the methods of conducting our cam- paigns in this civilized and progressive country. Some plan ought to be adopt- ed whereby one would not have to buy his office, aud then frequently not get what he pays for. Either all parties get together and put up one set of good can- didates, or the candidates agree to stay at home and spend no money and let the voters decide the election. We notice that a good many politi- cians of the state are jumping on C. H. Brickenstein, of Copejoa county, for holding so many offices. He is surveyor of customs in Denver at a good salary, clerk of the district and county courts of Conejos county, and has just been re- elected county treasurer for the sixth term, by virtue of which office he is also public trustee. From a pohticai standpoint we don't see anything wrong with Charlie. He is in politics, and in that profession "to the victors belong the spoils." ['he most of the kicking is done by those who are "out" but would lille to get "in" just as deep as he is. No one can say that he is not capable of conducting his offices to the satisfaction of the people and until someone comes along who is smart enough to get them away from him he is welcome to them. The writer has also held office, sometimes more than one at a time, but he has now voluntarily given them all up, as he has more congenial work, and he knows from experience that many will call one a hog if he holds more than one office, but these same peo- ple, together with many others, will call him afoolif he gives any of them up just to please his enemies. Much has been said during the past few years, and especially in this county, about third formers for office, but ~ve no. tics that most of the talk is made by the politicians, who find it to their interests to discourage continuity in public office, and get up new candidates fre- quently. The people of Saguacbe county have been led to believe that a man could not be elected for the third term, and it has become a sort of an unwritten law that an official shall not hold more than two successive terms. We have also noticed tbat a "third former" in other counties, if he is honest and capable, all other things being equal has as good a show for election, if nomi- nated, as a new candidate, and fre- quently gets a bigger vote than first termers on the same ticket. Leaving out of the question the counties of Cone- jos and Costilla, who re-elect their officers for many terms without opposition, we find that in the last election Fay, of Chaffee county and Brothers, of Gunni- son county, were re-elected county clerks f~,r their third terms, also Carpenter, of Rio Grande, for supt. of schools; and we presume there were many other third termers elected in the state. It is a sig- nificant fact that all the candidates just mentioned were either democrats or pop- ulists. We believe that if an official is honest, capable and accommodating in office that the majority of voters will support him regardless of how many terms he has held. Many of the republicans of Denver and other parts of the state are laying most of the blame for the defeat of the repub- lican ticket in Arapahos county this year to the part taken by the federal office holders in the campaign and their management of the affairs of the party generally. It is said that 185 of the dele- gates to the Arapahos county convention were federal office holders, their clerks and members of their families, and that they absolutely run the whole thing. It is reported that state chairman Ford national committeeman Stevenson, and many other party leaders will be asked to resign, and turn over the party leader- ship in the state to able republicans who are not influenced by federal office hold- ers While many public officials are well qualified to conduct and control party affairs, aud would do so for the best in- terests of the party, if there were "no strings on them," still the people gener- ally will not fdllow self constituted leaders, and they resent any interfer- ence from what appears to be outside in- fluences in the conduct ot local cam- paigns. If the republicans expect to carry the state next year we believe there will have to be a change in the manage- ment of the affairs of the party, and possibly a change in leaders. In this county the republicaus had an example of what appeared to be outside interfer- ence during the last campaign. An old resident of the county, and one of the beat postmasters, was removed from office for no reason apparently, and a man placed in his office who has been iu the county less than a year, and was not even known by half the patrons of his office. The only reason why he got the office was because he had a "pull" with headquarters. And only a short time after he was appointed he came into our republican county convention with a contesting delegation from his precinct and asked to be seated. The convention very promptly and rightly seated the regular delegation, and thereby saved the party from defeat iu the county. Public officials should besatisficd to con- duct their offiee,'and let others manage party affairs. Colorado Women in Office. Tweuty-two counties in Colorado elect- ed women for county school superinten- dents at the late election. In two coun- ties a woman was elected county clerk, San Juan and Logan, one of them for her fourth term. Also in San Juan county Miss Nellie Tulley, sister of de- puty state treasurer Tultey, was elected county treasurer for her third term. loot Races In Two Towns. Manuel dc Herrera blew in from Tabs, Thursday ostensibly selling chile and when it leaked out that he was also hunting a foot race, a match was soon made up with Glen Cochran, and all sorts of money placed on the result. The distance was eighty yards and the Mexi- can now owns the coin.--Del Norte Prospector. Manuel's advance agents came to Sa- guache the first of the week and match- ed a race between him and Art Creger. Distance 100 yards, $60 on a aide was put up. The race was run Wednesday, and the Mexican now has some Sa- guache coin also. m Deeds Filed For Record. Nov. 14. County treasurer to D. E. Glasgow-tax deed-lots 6 and 7 block 2, Villa Grove. Win. G.
