Daily Leader. WEDNESDAY. NOV. 18. CARKOLL Kditor.

sympathetic view of it. Tbe handsome tribute paid by the Denver Sun of yesterday to the memory of George L. Beard was very much appreciated by that young friends here and for the benefit of those who have failed to see it we produce it: Tbe suspension of the Cheyenne National bank has had a painfully and an awfully tragic sequel. It is the suicide of the young and popular cashier, George L. Beard.

This man, from all accounts, a few short weeks ago had before him the fairest and the brightest prospects. He held a high and responsible position in a banking institution of reputed wealth and recognised soundness. He had a fair private fortune. He had the ability, the culture, the attainments and the personal graces aod accomplishments to command alike public confidence and popularity. Life seemed to stretch out before him as a fair prospect It seemed to be for him prosperity, wealth, tbe realization of ambition, happiness.

But today lie is dead, slain literally by bis own hand, but really by the dark hand of hopelessness and despair. A few days ago Mr. Beard's bank was forced to suspend on account of the ure of another bank with which it had large business connections. It was, however, supposed to be solvent, and is still so regarded. He at once placed his private fortune, $40,000, among the assets of the institution.

There have been no developments to create a suspicion of his integrity and honor. But of course there have been the usual outcry of the depositors. Those things, as it now appears, wrought deeply upon the sensitive nature of the young cashier. He was only 30 years old, he had had no experience with misfortune and with the slights and tbe abuse and condemnation that too often go with it. He could not endure the reflection that others had suffered or would suffer loss through trusting him.

And be sought refuge in death. Os course he will be blamed. It will be said that he should have stood up against his misfortune, that he should have fought the thing through, that he should have accepted the result. This sounds well. It is easy to prescrllie the heroic course for others.

It is easy to be heroic against possible contin gencies But how many do squarely face dire hard, cruel fate? How many of those who do not seek relief in holdback from unworthy refuge? For a ymr man, a youth indeed of 30, without the gathered strength and ex pcrience of years, there should be much of charity. The flitting thoughts over his open grate are of what he was at his best and what under happier auspices he might have been. It begins to look very much as though Col. Kingi would occupy winter quarters in Wyoming. Tub commissioners have disallowed the bill of Court Clerk Atkinson for salary and are now about to sue him for the probitc fees amounting to about S2OO which ho retained on an order of Judge Scott and which arc retained by every court clerk iu the state on the order of Judge Blake and Judge Knight.

Atkinson will now be forced to sue for his salary. If the case is decided in his favor in the district court the commis sioners will probably engage another batch of lawyers (at tbe expense of the county) and tight the matter through the supreme court. It looks very much as though the commissioners had grown pig headed and their intention is not so much to sec justice done as it is to keep Atkinson out of his salary for the longest possible time. The people naturally turned to The Leader yesterday lor a full, comprehensive and accurate account of the death ofGeorgeL. Beard and none of them went away disappointed.

A London Labor Paper. A short time after the discontinuance of L.tbor World, a now paper was launched in London called The Cry, published by a stock comany and edited by ex-Commissioner Frank Smith. The first issue of the paper was dated May 2of this year. It immediately took possession of the field left vacant by The Labor World, and met with phenomenal success. It has now consolidated with The Leader, and is known as The Leader and Advocate.

Frank Smith, who edits it, will be remembered as the ex-commissioner of the Salvation Army. Mr. Smith did not agree with the methods of General Booth, and resigned his position iu the colonial office. Dollars and Sentiment. Any combination of labor to prove as successful as the combinations of capital must act repressively upon the independent action of the workman.

Dollars and cents are set down upon the debit or credit side of the ledger with as little feeling as knights and bishops change places on a chessboard. Os itself, money has no sentiment; too often it is the case that no sentiment goes with it when it is paid out. The intelligent workman, on the other hand, has a great deal of sentiment, and the display of wealth, when it is used simply for display, is B. Choate. The Central Labor nnion of New York adjourned in honor of the memory of Charles Stewart Parnell.

Special Correspondence. Carbon, Wyo Nov.

luckiest wreck that has ever occurred here took place today at 11 o'clock a. m. As No. 8, the East bound passenger train, consisting of mail, baggage, two passenger coaches, four sleepers and a Pullman car, entered the west side of the city, running at the rate of twenty miles an hour, was crossing the switch used to put rmpty coal cars in for mining purposes, the first wheel on the north side of the tender was seen to fly out fifteen feet north of the track. The engine.

No. 1804, broke from lhe train running fully 175 feet, all the wheels off the track except the two pony wheels iff front. Tbo tender lay on tbe south side of the track with the first two wheels and axle gone. The west end of tbe United States mail and east end of the baggage cars were thirty-six feet south of the track mines all the trucks. The other ends of the cars were near the track the mail car being overturned.

The track was torn up for a distance of 150 feet and considerable damage was done to the ends of the mail and baggage oars. When the axle broke on the tender it is supposed to have turned the switch causing two of the passenger cars and one sleeper to run in tne side track. No one was hurt further than a good shaking up. The passengers congratulated themselves upon their escape from iniurv. One old lady said: dangerous to travel by rail out here with six inches of snow below Tbe expressman was chased about the car by flying trunks and mail pouches and had a narrow escape.

8o badly was the track torn up that a new track was laid around tbe wreck. lie Longed in Vain for Freedom. Twenty-three years ago Philip Steinmetz entered the doors of the Ohio penitentiary a life convict. The other day they carried him to the cemetery, for death had claimed him and the worn and weary prisoner was at rest. Steinmetz thought himself a lucky fellow when Governor Hayes commuted his sentence from hanging to life imprison ment, but as the days and years rolled by he longed for freedom as earnestly as he had longed for existence when he stood almost under the shadow of the gallows.

He was a model convict, and despite the brutality of his forced bls way into a Imm -riu- ledo and killed officials time and again called notice to his good conduct and favored his pardon. The old man was seventyfour when he died pleaded pathetically. He asked release on parole, commutation of sentenceany sort of mercy which would give STEINMETZ. him at least the hope ot again breathing the air of liberty. But all in vain; and he died and was buried In the stripes of disgrace, after a confinement In the penitentiary longer than that of any prisoner on tbe record.

Ad That Pay. The advertisement such popularity in Europe as in the United States, and when one lowers the dignity of hla position by inserting a matrimonial proposal or anything of that sort he is liable to create trouble for himself. A clergyman at Buda-Pesth has got into grave difficulty with his superiors because he published the following: Greek Ortho dox Servian priest, handsome, alone in the world, without children, and twenty-eight years of age, with 2,000 florins income, living amid beautiful romantic scenery, not far from Temesvar, is anxious to wed a pretty young lady or a widow under thirty, independent, with a little property of her own and no children.

The Jury Wanted Cash Down. Six thrifty jurymen at Willimantic, refused to render a verdict in a civil suit the other day until they had been paid their fees, alleging that if the case was appealed they wouldn't get their money for four or five years. The cash was promptly forthcoming. Mary Matchett is the appropriate uame of a Buchanan (Mich.) woman who is uow thirty-six years old, who is a grandmother and who has been married five times.

R. Wilber's dramatization of Dumas' Famous Novel, The Clemenceau Case. Admission 25c and 50c. now on sale A Novel Notion. Archibald Ulavcring Gunter, the author and dramatist of Mr.

Potter of Trxai, which will receive its first stage production here at the opera Thursday night. Nov. 19, conceived rather a novel idea while adapting his popular story. The book opens in Alexandria, where the famous siege of that Egyptian city is in progress. The characters in the first chapters of the book are many of them foreign in manners, customs and nationality to those of the story after the introduction of Mr.

Potter of Texas upon the scene of action. To place the entire narrative upon the stage it would necessitate tbe introduction of two separate classes of actors and fully five hours would be required to present even the startling scenes predicted by this clever word painter. Mr. Gunter, seeing this, had almost adopted the novel idea of organizing two compan: and devoting two evenings to each representation of tbe entire play. But after deliberating with Manager Frank W.

Sanger, to whom be intrusted the production of Mr. Potter. and who had to successfully exploited hie Mr. Hama of Hew York on the road, tbe scheme was abandoned, and the story taken up where the rough and uncouth, though big hearted Texas ranger, appears upon the scene on a visit to bis beautiful daughter in England.
