a the THE HARTFORD DAILY COURANT, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1909. 15 GRAND CANYON COLORADO RIVER. GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OF MARVEL OF NATURE. Scene of President Taft's Recent Visit. THE GREATEST WONDER OF THE WORLD.

In going west over the Santa Fe when one approaches Trinidad at the junction of the great plains and the foothills materially. Rockies Here the the changes snow-capped Spanish Peaks first ful and, if a clear day, Pike's Peak appear, is distinguished although a hundred miles distant. Here also begins the to the first of many lofty tain gateways, the Raton Pass. The grade 15,50 steep two powerful mountain engines are required to haul the train at a pace hardly faster than a walk, From the rear vestibule the view grand, beyond words, as one mounis tain range after another appears, the train passing through the very heart of the mountains, along canyons with breaks, through which one may look out to other ranges. A short disfar tance this side the summit stands the old toll of adobe, which has recently been renovated and is to be preserved as a museum, where for many the veteran Dick, Wooten collecttoll from those who used years the wagon road through the pass, belonging to the ante-railroad period, for by this road journeyed every overland stage, caravan, cavalcade, prairie schooner ern those early days, and emigrant, bound to the southwestFrom the summit looking backward down the pass one catches a farewell glimpse of the Spanish Peaks, and then the hills and shut off the view.

There is a boundry post marked upon one side "Colorado" and upon the other "New just as the train enters the tunnel at an elevation of over 7,000 feet. The second tunnel making a double-track over the pass from Trinidad to Raton was completed in 1908, 9,000 different workmen being employed during the thirteen months of construction. South of the Raton Pass are the 2,000,000 acres now being occupied by miners, ranchers and farmers, formerly known as the Maxwell Land Grant. From Trinidad to Williams (about two days' trip), where one changes for the branch line running to the Grand yon, the ride is of special interest, passing through the Mexican settlements of quaint adobe houses, ancient, Indian pueblos, still inhabited, tracts of the desert covered with sage bush, mesas, dead volcanoes, lava beds and arroyas cut deep and wide in the red soil. The recent heavy rains having worked great destruction.

Here and there one sees the cowboys rounding up the cattle, or Indians in gay attire racing over the desert on ponies, and above all the blue sky of New Mexico Arizona with the brilliant sunlight and deep shadows. At Williams the train enters a pine forest. As the ascent begins, the San Francisco Peaks come into view, the scene widens and the outlook is one of great beauty. In the clear air one can see for miles and miles to the foot hills of the nearer mountains. A large sheep ranch thirty miles away appears but a short distance, and the thought constantly comes to mind--what a great country this is.

In places the pines melt into a vast plain and to mountains ranges lying on the very edge of the horizon, and following all the way the San Peaks, with the snow them and the fleecy clouds below. the summit of this great plateau, 7,000 feet above sea level, the train enters Conconino Forest, a Government reserve, and the largest continuous belt of pine timber in the United States. Not from this point, nor in the surrounding landscapes, is there the faintest hint that within a few hundred feet "is the greatest chasm in the world, and the most superb." One has read many times that the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River is 217 miles long, measured by the length of the river, but many thousand by the winding canyon rim, nine to thirteen miles wide, and midway more 6,000 feet below the level of the plateau, and in the canyon are hundreds of mountains of indescrible colors, more imposing than Mount Washington, yet none of which project their peaks above the canyon rim, and also, that twenty Yosemites might lie unperceived below, or a Niagara would not here possess the dignity of a trout stream--but when one really stands on the brink of that horrible chasm where 1,000 square miles lie wholly beneath the eye, and looks down, and then across mountain tops never yet. scaled by man, having the appearance of turrets, cliffs, and castles with domes and spires, all wonderfully colored and perfectly carved by the storms of ages, to the opposite wall of the canyon which stretches to the outer mountains lying against the horizon--all these figures and facts mean nothing, one feels as if standing on the very brink of eternity, and for a time individual objects are not noticed. It is a scene that grows upon one, and only after days and even weeks can the mind begin to grasp it.

The coloring of the canyon is most delicate, there are terra-cottas and grays, creams and yellows, which contrasted with the pines of the towering cliffs, under the blue sky of Arizona and the glint of sunlight and shadow, brings out every color known to the palette, and defies description. The memory of the sunrise here will be a life-long pleasure. Standing on the brink while the stars were still shining the canyon was filled with a shimmerIng purple haze, which lifted as the first rays of the sun appeared above horizon, bringing itno view one the mountain peak after another, touched with color upon color--the light and shadows playing from turret to castle, and minaret to cliff as mountain range after range was disclosed, while the east still lay shrouded in mist. Across the stillness a lone bird winged its flight, One lingered long as each moment brought new scenes. Soon after breakfast the mules are brought to the of the El Tovar Hotel, for those who are going down the Bright Angel trail to the river, a mile below the rim and seven by.

trail. There are several trails. but this seems to be the most popular. The trip takes about eight hours allowing three for rest, and is as safe as any mountain mule does not slip. Provision is the trail providing made for those who wish to camp over night on the river's edge.

A number of people walked inciuding ladies. but It is a be made hard trip, as the return cannot is until late in the evening. It that by anything descending like a into comprehension the canyon of only Its walk only a short may be distance gained, down and the a proportions trail than repays one for the hard el'mbing. Nearly every one in the trail party carried a camera and lunch, and all possible do not make the best appearance in the hired suits. The nonchalant air (which the Royal Baking Powder is the greatest of time and labor savers to the pastry cook.

From certain points of the canyon the river channel can be seen. perhaps five miles distant in a straight line, more than a mile below the point and view, and looks like a narrow brown stream but is from 250 to 300 feet wide and runs with velocity of fifteen miles an hour. Its volume and turmoil are equal to the whirlpool rapids of Niagara. Drift is often lodged in the crevices thirty feet overhead as its rise in time of heavy rain is rapid and appalling, and huge tree trunks are I tossed about in the river like chips.

One of the small boats in which Major J. W. Powell undertook the exploration of the river with nine men in 1869, is seen in front of the hotel. The expedition started in May and on August landed at the mouth of the Virgin River, more than 1,000 miles by the river channel from the place of starting, minus two boats and four men. One of the 1 men gave up before reachArizona, and three, after encountering the perils for five a weeks, chose rather to suffer the dangers of an unknown desert, and suddenly appearing on the plateau were by the Indians who refused to believe they came down the river in a boat.

Powell's journal of the trip is a tale of true heroism, Before this the exact course of the river was unknown for many hundred miles. even its origin being a matter of conjecture. It was in 1540 the civilized world heard first of the Grand Canyon through Spanish explorers. From then until the middle of the nineteenth century it remained practically unvisited, and one cannot help think in looking at the man who came upon it must been. canyon what the feelings of fathe first There are many fine drives of miles above the canyon where it can be seen from different points, and a large number of visitors take long horseback rides.

Then there is the Hopi House, a miniature Indian pueblo, where one may see rare and costly specimens of Indian and Mexican handiwork. Here the Indians dance in the evening, and during the day one may go into their house and see them at work. In adjacent "hogans" live a number of Navajos, the women wearing the fine blankets with their babies beside them or in little wooden cradles on their backs. The men appear to take life easy when not in the saddle, and one seated on the ground admiring himself in a looking glass, turning it this way and that, for a different view, caused much amusement. There is a fascination about the canyon and one comes back again and again to the rim where a low parapet marks the edge and a number of benches are placed, to watch changing scene.

One of the threatest beauties is the impressive purple that lingers in the canyon all day. Here one finds fellow travelers from all over the world, the average is about 10,000 year. People, who have toured the old country for years, expressed themselves as never having seen anything like the Grand Canyon. From the rim, trail through the valley and over the plateau mile below looks like a small brown thread, and about noon, if one has good eye-sight a number of insects can be seen crawling over it, which proves to be the trail party that left soon after breakfast. The trail over the but plateau in reality appears is to a be mile but and el few yards, a half, and the little collection of tents, called the Indian Garden, look like turned over tea cups.

So the afternoon passes, as the shadows lengthen the scene changes, for the canyon is never the same, and there is always something new to see. Toward five o'clock those who went down the trail return, all burned to less degree, and tell their admore or ventures to an appreciative audience, how two women and one man fainted when they reached the foot of the trail, and two other women utterly refused to return, but were finally persuaded to mount blind-folded, and their mules the trail. One gentleman from up Chicago declared, "any man who goes down that trail is a fool, my mule hung his head over the edge of the canyon, and there he stayed. and what could I nothing." For the first time in his do? "there was nothing doing." busy An elderly gentleman, who appeared exceedingly warm, but was full to be of enthusiasm, said, "I wouldn't have that trip for $1,000 but I missed wouldn't go again for $5,000," and the of the gentleman from impressions amounted to the Texas, he had seen the fellow that dug hole, he would like to see the that that painted it." "That reminds chap said another, "of the time President Roosevelt was here, a wag who stood near him as he was looking said, 'Mr. President, I at the canyon, dug that was Roosevelt's reply."

He says that that deer are now making life miserable for farmers thereabouts, and that a herd of five, camping in the rear of his farm, make frequent excursions into his crops. Another farmer named Hubbard has been relieved of a good crop of Hubbard squashes by the deer, and numerous other depredations have been made by the animals. Chief Belden recommended that' Holman write to the game warden.

CHIEF JUSTICE CALLS PAPERS IMPERTINENT. Attack on Appeals Court to Be Stricken from Records, I States by announcing that papers in the case of the Yellow Poplar Lumber Company against S. F. Chapman would be stricken from the records of the court because of their scandalous nature. The case came to this court on a petition for a writ of certiorari asking for a review of the decision of the United States circuit court of appeals for the fourth circuit.

The controversy involves a contract by Chapman to deliver to the company 50.000,000 feet of lumber in Virginia. The court of appeals decided in favor of Chapman, and in its petition the company asks a review on various grounds, one of which is stated as opinion of the court of appeals is so grotesque in its conclusions of law and prepared with so little care and study as to be almost unintelligible, even grammatically, not to say legally." The chief justice did not quote any part of the papers, but, referring to them in a general way, said that they were "so impertinent and improper that they would be stricken from the docket in order to protect the records of the court from scandal." The petition for a writ of review was denied. The judges sitting in the court of appeals who were attacked in the case were Pritchard, circuit judge, and Boyd and Dayton, district judges. The case was tried originally in the United States circuit court for the western district of Virginia. Washington, Nov.

Justice Fuller today created a mild sensation in the supreme court of the United BARGE LOAD OF GRANITE DUMPED INTO RIVER. Vessel Collides With Bridge at Saybrook and Capsizes. Saybrook, Nov. hundred tons of granite blocks were dumped into the main channel of the Connecticut River at the rallroad bridge last night when the barge Kaaterskill collided with one of the bridge abutments and capsized. The barge was in tow of the tug Sachem and consigned to Schoonmaker Rice of New York.

It broke away from its tug after the collision and floated about a mile down the river, but later righted itself and grounded on one of the Lyme flats. When the barge struck, the captain saved himself by jumping and on the abutment. The water is deep at this point, and while it is not expected that navigation will be interrupted as result of the accident, an examination is to be made by a diver to ascertain whether they are a menace to vessels and also whether they can be removed. The blocks vary in size from four feet long and four feet high to fifteen feet in length and height. NO RE-HEARING FOR TENNESSEE SHERIFF.

Shipp and His Deputies to Be Sentenced for Contempt. Washington, Nov. Joseph Shipp of Chattanooga, and five of his co-defendants in the prosecution by the United States for contempt of the supreme court of the United States, will be required to appear before the court on the 15th of this month, and undergo sentence at the hands of the court. Their petition for a rehearing was denied today by the court, but without any reason being stated for the denial. The men who will undergo sentence, in addition to Shipp, are his deputies, Gibson, Collins, Nolan, Padgett and Mayes, all of whom were found guilty during the last term of the court.

The charge against them is that of conspiring to lynch a negro named Ed Johnson in March, 1906, after the court had taken cognizance of his case. UNIONVILLE. The Brookside Rod and Gun Club have finished a two days' hunting contest, the result of which will be made known after the game supper, which will be held at the Hotel Worthy this evening at 8:30.
