What per cent, j will vote? Will they want office? Will t they all vote for prohibition? I There is one thing sure the 1 saloon ele- I ment will get a black eye. The major I itv of women me decidedly in favor of temperance. Last spring in Kansas it was found most of them voted with the Republican party. The man who neglects his family will stand but little show of election as far as the female vote goes. Many of the women of our State will be eager and active in political matters, and to be contrary will vote exactly opposite to their husbands and brothers. Others will pay but little attention to the study of which party is right or wrong, but will vote just as “hubby" does. When a candidate is placed in nomination it is supposed naturally the questions will Ik* raised “What stylo of coat dots Lc wear?"

Last Friday evening the school build j ing of lower Gunnison valley was crowdi ed to overflowing by members and friends ; of the society of whose organization last i week’s issue of this paper gave an ae| count. j Visitors from Delta were present .and i seemed to enjoy the society, j A long and interesting program was j carried out consisting of songs recitations I and readings and last but not least (al- I though it almost drifted into the “wee ' sma" hours or the night) was the debate uj>on the subject with, which the readers of the Independent are familiar. Statistics were given and opinions were expressM by each debater till with "Honest farmer folk” “the wonder grew that one small head could carry all he knew." The “chaiT' which How while “threshing out the question” tilled the air with good humors. Mr. Ong led the affirmative in a lengthy argument assisted by Mr. Coombc in a terse and humorous address. Mr. Angell in reply showed he had given much thought to the subject and his colleague Mr. Smith introduced statistics showing the great importance of mining industry to the jx-opl(* of Colorado. When the debate closed the judges Messrs. Nutter. Mays and Talliert decided for the affirmative of the question. After some business transactions the a *cicty adjourned to meet hereafter every Friday evening. An interesting program is prepared for No\. 17th and the question: “Resolved that intemperance causes more misery than war.” will lx- debated by the follow - ing j i rsons Messrs.

NATURAL GAS. <.'rnn?l Junction Company l'ou:i:l a Coed I'tnir. The people of Meea county are rejoicing. and well they may. They have a flowing natural gas well which means ! much to the Western Slope. Last summer a company was organized ; to bore for oil. gas or artesian water. The I capital stock of the company was 81.0G0,- 000. shares 81 each. The principal stockholders arc residents of Rock Island, 111., and the officers are in Grand Junction. The well is ten inches in circumference. and they propose by placing one casing in another to bring oil, gas and water from the same well if all be found. There is little doubt from indications that they will soon have a flowing oil well before they go many feet further down. At a depth of 330 feet they have j a flow of gas with a pressure of sixty j I mju mis to the square inch. Last Thursday night in the presence of a large crowd they lighted the gas which produced a flame U 0 feet high. They exj>eet to go down about H.OOj ■ feet in order to determine what is under them. There is no doubt but the sacir condi i tions exist on this side of Grand Mesa. There are continuous veins of coal on i the Mesa side from here to the head of the North Fork. Last summer an attempt was made in Delta county to J organize a company fur the purpose of j making the same experiments in the Gunnison valley, but the hard time.- , knocked out the undertaking. It would j be a good idea to 6tart the project again, before Grand Junction picks up all the j industries these developments are bound i to bring. l or Bml.

I.v last DvcVfl, lWtl) POPULISMDEDL Tlac Election* Show bal Very Few ( onnfioN Carried in t!«e l". fi. By Followers of Mm. Lrn«e. ! The elections hast week clearly proved one fact, and that is the fact that the v isionary principles and cries of repudiation anarchy indulged in the Populists are dead. A few of the smaller counties in Colorado gave even larger Populist votes this year than last. This is particularly noticeable in the western tier of counties, but the State went overwhelmingly Republican. In Kansas but a few of the counties where the Greenbackers once had their strongholds went Populist. The state oSiccrs elected are all Republican, and almost every county went Republican. In Virginia where the Populists sent their best speakers and a large amount of money, the state went Democratic by alxmt GO.COO. In Nebraska the Populi6t6made slight gains, which was no doubt due to the fact that the Democrats had recently endorsed Cleveland, which caused the Bryan following to bolt. In Denver when it beeawe known that the county and most of the state had shown their disappro'.al of Governor Waite. **Wheels’* Holden, and their attempts to ruin the State, business at once picked up. produce of every kind ad vane ed in price, and mining stocks rose from three to five j>oints. These facts clearly prove that the majority of the people in Colorado and Kansas are not satisfied with the revolutionary actions of Governor Llewelling and Waite, and prefer the better times we enjoyed under a Republican admin istration In the elections of the East of course the Populists arc not a factor, but the results clearly show that the people do not approve of Cleveland’s policy, as everywhere that elections were held the Republicans got everything, even New Jersey which never went Republican before in the history of the State. Ohio's election clearly shows who will be the next President of the United States. We arc glad that we never voted any ticket but the Republican, and if Sena tors Teller. Wolcott. Jones. Stewart. Cameron amt other Republicans who are in the silver tight ere the best hopes for the white metal in the g. o. p., we know their constituents will sustain them in their actions.

The Washington Post comments editorially oa the situation in Colorado. It says, in part: “There is nothing but the best of feeling in the East and all over the country for the welfare and prosperity of Colorado. It is true that the opponents of free silver, by their successful effort in bringing about a suspension of the purchase of silver and indefinitely postponing further coinage, are regarded almost in the light of conspirators against one of the great industries of the Centennial state, but the question here involved was of a national rather than sectional character, and it had to be settled on na tional rather than sectional lines, and the fact remains that, while Colorado may have Suffered thnralu; it n-ne no unfriendlinef'to the people of the silver states that all all these things were done. Colorado has really fared worse at the hands of the Populists of that state than by the action of Congress. She can sur\i.o the temporary depression of her silver interests, but even the wealth of other splendid resources would avail little so long as the g wernment of the commonwealth was lodged in an administration which had neither credit at bone nor abroad, and now we all know how manfully the issues were met on Tuesday last, there is no friend of good government who will not rejoice at a result which foreshadows the release of Colorado from a yoke of misrule, and which cannot fail to unlock the hoarded capital that is now lying idle, and open wide tho doors to millions of investments from abroad." Rev. Gill of the Methodist church will introduce a cow feature in the Sunday evening services. Just preceding tho regular sermons he will give a five minutes talk on the leading topic of interest either local or national every week. The Epworth League will give a literary entertainment to morrow evening at tho Methodist church. - —— 160 acre* on Ash Mesa all uu lor fence and water.
