A Very Pleasant Surprise
Dr. Owen, our very popular homeopathic physician, moved into his new office, in Fitch's building, on Thursday, and good, easy soul, thought he was quietly inaugurated in his new quarters with no flourish of trumpets. Bus alas! An element was at work of which he little dreamed. Busy hands, moved by friendly brains, were preparing a house-warming surprise, which culminated last night. A host of patrons, friends and admirers assembled at the Lindell, at 7:30 o'clock, and marching in solid phalanx moved on the doctor's works. He was taken entirely by surprise, but like the sensible man that he is, he surrendered at discretion and the invaders took entire possession. Quite a number of friends brought appropriate presents, a partial list of which is appended below.
Among the patrons and friends we noticed Mr. Wm. Ingersoll and wife, Mr. J. V. Andrews and wife, Mr. D. P. Wooten and wife, Mr. J. D. Miller, Mr. Josiah Hughes and wife, Mr. Gantz and wife, Mrs. Cowperthwaite and daughters, Miss Wilcox, Mrs. Dodge, Miss Hill, Mrs. Barnett, Dr. Stinson, Mrs. Howard, Misses Montgomery, Mr. Beck, Mrs. Robinson, Will Reid, Miss Gantz, H. R. Francis, R. L. Hatton, George Dunbaugh, Rev. Mr. Gage, Mr. Baird, Miss Barndollar, Miss Herbert, Mr. Campbell, Mrs. Campbell, C. J. Reed, F. H. Shrock, Mr. Catheart, Mrs. Dolan, Dr. Robb, Mr. Lampkin, Mr. Buchanan, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Kincaid, Mr. Skeank, Mr. W. Rice, Miss Wheelock and Mr. Phillips. Quite a number were present whom we did not know.
At a little past 9 o'clock an elegant supper was spread and the guests laid a good foundation for a lucrative practice for the doctor for the next few days, for the way chicken, turkey, ham, pickles, pies, cakes, coffee and "et ceteras" were disposed of, ensured a complication of diseases demanding medical treatment.
During all the evening the doctor seemed unable to conquer the feeling of surprise which took possession of him at his first outbreak, early in the evening. No doubt he must feel proud of this demonstration as it is not only a personal compliment of a high order, but it further shows the very high estimate his many and highly respectable patrons place on his medical skill and the homeopathy system of practice.
Quite a number of handsome presents were donated, among which were noticeable brackets, paper baskets, card dish, chair tidy, etc., etc.
During the evening Messrs. Baily and Skeank rendered in superior style "Lurboard Watch" and "The Minute Gun at Sea."
In making the presentation speech Mr. C. J. Reed expressed the hope on behalf of the visitors "That the doctor's success and happiness might be portioned out in the largest alapathic doses, while his misfortunes are dosed out in their three hundredth attenuation."
The entire occasion was a grand success and the highest compliment to the doctor's popularity.
The elegant new quarters of the doctor are fitted up in a syle he has long desired and for comfort, ease and elegance are unsurpassed, and his many patrons and friends cordially wish him not only the success which has marked his professional course, but an increase his skill and merits deserve.
South Pueblo Items.
A twelve inch main is being laid to the steel works.
The immigration boom is a bonanza to the A. W. Jewell & Co., brokers. Their office is thronged daily with pilgrims. They have tickets to anywhere for any price.
The water mains have been laid to the brow of the mesa, and will be laid down in the business portion of the town as soon as the weather will permit.
Our town is crowded with the shivering tenderfeet who thought they would never need any overcoat in this semi-tropical climate. They find that two big revolvers and a rifle are not the only outfit necessary to a Colorado visit.
Mr. Wm. Moore having peremptorily declined the nomination for mayor, we would suggest Mr. Joseph McMurtry, a citizen known and respected by all. Mr. McMurtry is a property owner and a man of experience in municipal matters. He would make us a splendid mayor. We put him forward.
Mrs. O. B. Wellock & Co., consisting of mother and daughter, have rented the South Pueblo bank building and will soon open a first-class millinery and dress making establishment. These ladies come highly recommended from their old home in Marshaltown, Iowa.

Alex. Robinson, a well known old Denver and Rio Grande boy, after visiting the centennial, the Paris exposition and all Europe, and the Canadian provinces, has returned to take his old position on the road. Everybody except the Sam Hop Chinaman will be glad to welcome Alex. home again.
The E. H. Saltiel Mica and Porcelain company shipped twenty-one thousand pounds of mica from their mines on Friday, so we are informed by Mr. Saltiel.

Rocky Mountain News 2-2-1884 - Pueblo's Democratic Leaders - Pueblo, Feb. 1 - A few days ago The News called the attention of the Republican leaders to not only the advisability but actual necessity of recognizing their party talent in Pueblo county. Neither of the factions of that grand old party can succeed in Colorado without the aid of the Republican giants of the Pueblo. Notwithstanding the importance of these Republicans Pueblo county is a Democratic county and always goes that way, with a ticket properly distributed. The fact that a majority of the county officers elected last fall are Republican, is not due so much to Republican strength as to carelessness on the part of the Democratic convention in selecting as many candidates from one precinct. Their party is not liable to make the same mistake in the early future, and therefore it is not out of place to call attention to prominent Democrats of Pueblo county who are available for national, state or county positions. In suggesting the names of these gentlemen your correspondent has no desire to make a slate. Hon. James B. Orman is a gallant young Democrat and unquestionably one of the strongest men in Colorado with his party. He is a native of Iowa and has resided in Colorado for a number of years. He has been twice elected to the state legislature from this county and was warmly supported last winter as the nominee of his party for the short term in the United States senate. Hon. Alva Adams, at one time designated as the Democratic war horse of the San Juan, is also a young man, not yet 34 years of age. He is a native of Wisconsin and like the gentleman named above came to Colorado before reaching his majority. He is a true Coloradan in every sense of the word. Mr. Adams was elected a member of the first Colorado state legislature, in 1876, from the county of Rio Grande and was the acknowledged leader of the Democrats in that body. He has repeatedly been urged by friends to become a candidate respectively for congress and governor, but modestly, combined with business cares, would not permit of his doing so. Mr. Adams is a deep thinker, a good scholar and a ready orator. Hon. John M. Waldron, another young Democrat of Pueblo county, is one of the ablest lawyers in the state. His ability was first brought prominently before the public as state's attorney for this judicial district. With the exception of being elected to the office named and to which he could have been re-elected, he has eschewed politics and devoted himself to the law, in which he has succeeded to an eminent degree. Hon. George Q. Richmond is also a talented young Democrat and an able lawyer. He was the Democratic candidate for attorney general of Colorado in 1876. With the gallant ticket of that year headed by the veteran General Bela M. Hughes he was snowed under but not vanquished. Mr. Richmond is at present the law partner of ex-Governor F. W. Pitkin. Hon. A. B. Patton is another promising young Democratic lawyer of Pueblo, who is possessed of fine ability and unimpeachable integrity. He has had but little experience in politics and is most available timber. Hon. James N. Carlile has perhaps more personal acquaintances than any other gentleman in Colorado. He is a gentleman of great influence, his strength consisting largely in his well-known goodness of heart, his integrity and his universal politeness. He is a thorough Coloradan, loyal to his home at Pueblo, but with a mind and heart big enough to take in the whole state and the interests of all its people. He was elected a member of the first state legislature by a handsome majority, and was offered the Democratic nomination for state treasurer in 1880, but declined on account of his large business interests demanding his personal attention. Hon. William B. Hamilton, like all the others mentioned, is a young man, but has seen some service in the party, having been a member of the first state senate, defeating State Treasurer Walsen before the people in Huerfano county. He served creditably in that position, and at once retired from politics to look after his business affairs. He is at present a member of the Pueblo city council. Hon. Stephen Walley, ex-mayor of South Pueblo, is one of the substantial citizens of the county as well of one of its leading and most intelligent Democrats. He has devoted his great energy to the building of the Pueblos, giving but little time to politics, excepting in the heat of a campaign. He is thoroughly honest, and a man of strong convictions. He is a tower of strength in his party. Ex-Sheriff H. R. Price is one of the old reliable Democrats of Pueblo county who can always command strength in a campaign. He is at present engaged in commercial pursuits. Still he will be heard from when the time comes for work. Hon. Henry Richardson, ex judge of the Pueblo County court, is a straight Democrat and a genial gentleman of the old school. He is possessed of honesty, integrity and large ability. He is not in any sense a politician, knowing but little of the ways in which voters are "whooped up" at the present day. He deserves and commands the respect of all who know him. Hon. Charles Henkel, president of the board of trade and ex-chairman of the board of county commissioners, is by no means a politician, but in this very fact lies his great strength. He is a Democrat, true to his party, but has known nothing of politics in his active business life. George J. Dunbaugh is an active young business man of acknowledged strength in the Democratic party, and possessed of considerable ability, as evidenced in his short experience in politics. Christopher Wilson, the present treasurer of Pueblo county, is one of the survivors of the Democratic Waterloo last fall, having having pulled through when all of his associates, with one exception, fell a prey to the enemy. This fact shows the strength of Mr. Wilson among the people. Their confidence is not misplaced. Arthur G. Bond, who was scratched out by some chicanery at the polls and "scratched" in by an honest count, is the Democratic assessor of Pueblo county. The crookedness developed in the contest has given the assessorship more than usual notoriety. Mr. Bond is an exceptionally clever young gentleman and will make a faithful officer of the people. Judge W. P. Deck, late Democratic candidate for county judge, is a young lawyer of good ability and possessing the confidence and esteem of all who know him. He will be heard from again in the politics of Pueblo county. Hon. T. T. Player, judge of the Criminal court of Pueblo county, has shown himself to be possessed of a fine legal mind, his decisions on the bench being approved by the oldest and best legal talent in the state. Judge Player is a young man that is destined to make a fine legal record. He is a Democrat in politics. M. D. Crow, chairman of the Democratic county central committee, is one of the promising young Democrats of the county. He is at present the efficient clerk of the Criminal court. District Attorney Maxwell is making a splendid record as a lawyer and is rapidly advancing in the estimation of the people. He is a member of the Democratic family. Judge Frank H. Shrock is one of the prominent Democrats on the south side who dispenses impartial justice "regardless of race, color or previous condition of servitude." He is Democratic by nature and practices and carries considerable strength in a campaign. The Democracy of Pueblo county is composed almost entirely of young men, only a few of its prominent members reaching towards "three score and ten." Among the latter is the venerable jurist and statesman, Hon. A. A. Bradford, who has filled high positions of honor and trust, and now in the winter of his life, enjoys the confidence and esteem of all people, and no stain attaches to his long and useful career.

They have already purchased and will drive into Colorado 45,000 head. This immense band of cattle will be mostly one and two-year-old animals, largely of the steer kind. Before they have left their native heath they have mostly been contracted by large stock raisers at Trinidad and Pueblo and along the Arkansas river. The prices paid by the Colorado parties will range from $17 to $25. We do not learn that any of these Pryor cattle will come north of the Divide. To drive this immense herd of cattle the Pryor Brothers have purchased 400 head of saddle horses and will employ from thirty to forty men. They will consume from sixty to ninety days in making the move. This tedious journey, were the Denver & New Orleans road (railroad) completed would be performed in sixty hours. - Tribune.

Honorable Judge and gentlemen of the Jury: I think I have performed my duty in this case. Wherein the State of Colorado as plaintiff and Mr. Cobbler Freelin is defendant. As you well remember, on the night January 1st, 1885 were gathered together many law-abiding citizens. On this particular evening, taxes were due on several claim shanties. A great many had paid, in fact, all but one; that one man, gentlemen of the jury sits before you. He refused. Now the penalty for non-compliance in performing this duty should be heavy. The tax was not burdensome. In order to liquidate then it was required that the tax-payer sing a song, tell a lie or “set up” the cigars. Gentlemen of the jury, you know, the court knows, we all know, that the defendant could have accomplished either of the three without any exertion whatever. Cobbler Freelin arrived here about ten o'clock. He was asked to pay his taxes; he refused to do so. It is claimed that he should be acquitted on the ground of emotional insanity. Gentlemen of the jury, I don't believe he was insane, although some might naturally think a man crazy to buck against any of Fort Morgan's interests. I rest my case with you. Defense offered no argument other than the testimony. The Judge's oath to the jury was a follows: “You solemnly swear to render in this case, wherein the People are plaintiff, and Cobbler Freelin defendant, an unfair and partial decision, so help” scat.” The Judge then turned to the sheriff, saying: “You will convey this jury to some suitable retreat, where they can get nothing to eat, drink or sleep with until a verdict is reached.” After a reasonable time the jury returned, and rendered a verdict of “Guilty,” with a recommendation of mercy, because of his youth. The Judge rose stern and majestic, his thumb in his eye and a tear at the end of his nose, and delivered the following sentence: “Mr. Freelin: It is the sentence of this Court that you shall not die with your boots on. You will be divested of your hat, and what other property you may have about your person, the same to be turned over to this court to be held until your taxes are paid. Sheriff, do your duty, and take the swag.”

When the train pulled into the union depot their son, Henry, of perhaps 10 years of age, had an overwhelming curiosity to see the great Pueblo that is rapidly growing in fame throughout the East. So he crawled out of the coach and sauntered around the depot, viewing in utter amazement the magnificent arch that welcomed King Rex to the city. The towering chimneys and clouds of smoke rolling in perfect grandeur to the skies attracted his attention, and while he stood upon the platform appalled by the immensity of his surroundings the train pulled out and left him.

Rocky Mountain News 7-28-1889 - Patriarch's Parade - Odd Fellows From Far and Near Exhilarate Pueblo With Bugles, Banquets and Blarney - Large Delegations From Denver and Colorado Springs Swell the Tide - Election of Grand Officers - Pueblo, Colo., July 27 - This has been a notable day among the Odd Fellows' order not only of the city but of the state. Two events occurred of more than passing interest. First was the organization of a new canton, and second was the election of officers for the department of Colorado. The patriarchs militant, the new uniformed rank of the Odd Fellows, corresponds to the Knights Templar in the Masonic order. Their uniforms are the best that money can buy, and with the sword and plume make an imposing appearance. The members are drilled rather more carefully than the Knight Templars usually take the time and patience for, and as a general thing the chevaliers, as the uniformed Odd Fellows call themselves, are younger than the Knights. The new lodge in Pueblo is called Canton Piper No. 12, getting its name from G. J. Piper, a well known and popular contractor. It musters three dozen members, their officers being the following: Captain, W. T. Fairfax; lieutenant, W. F. Boob; ensign, W. T. Clemmons. Canton Piper and Canton Garfield turned out at 5 p.m. with a brass band and marched to the depot to meet a special train from Denver, which brought representative chevaliers from those cities to a considerable number, so that the uniformed Odd Fellows in line now numbered about 140. A platoon of uniformed policemen led the parade, which was very imposing. About a dozen officers of the various cantons represented rode on horse back. The line of march was up Union and Santa Fe avenues. The parade was witnessed by large crowds on the streets. The visiting chevaliers were the following: From Denver - Colonel I. N. Rogers, Major Norman, Grand Master Fay, General Woodbury, Major Marks, Captain Willard, Bugler Mills, Captain Simmons, Captain Gee, Captain Rushmore, Captain Dubbs, Captain Henderson, Lieutenant Bergstrand, Lieutenant Cisler, Ensign Titcomb, Ensign Davis, and Chevaliers Ashley, McCue, Munson, Thomas, Nellis, Williams, Woodward, Cross, Rice, Aff, Tucker, Elliott, Hodgson, Willard, Hammen, Trask, Sneath, Mills, Jackson, Hoskins and Horn. From Colorado Springs were Grand Warden Horne, Captain McCrary, Captain Whaite, and Chevaliers Nicholson, Taylor, Moffat, Baker, Holloway, Sellers and Meservey. The banquet, which began at midnight at Grand hotel, was enlivened by the spirited music of the drum corps. The toasts were responded to as follows: "Odd Fellowship," Grand Master Fay of Denver; "The Lodge Grand of Colorado," Grand Warden Horne of Colorado Springs; "The Patriarchs Militant and Departments of Colorado," Colonel Rogers; "Canton Arapahoe," Captain J. A. Dubbs; "Canton Navajoe," Captain Henderson; "Canton Colfax," Captain A. H. White of Colorado Springs; "The Grand Encampment of Colorado," J. M. Norman of Denver; "The Sovereign Grand Lodge," A. J. Woodbury of Denver; "Our Colonel," Dr. W. T. Stemmons of Pueblo; "Our Canton," Captain W. T. Fairfax; "Canton Pueblo," Major Kelly. The election of officers during the evening for the department of Colorado resulted as follows: colonel, I. N. Rogers of Denver; lieutenant colonel, G. J. Piper of Pueblo; major of the First battalion, Louis Williams of Denver; major of the Second battalion, H. O. McCreery of Colorado Springs; major of the First separate battalion, E. C. Carver of Greeley.
