than $03,900; and in 1880, his most pro

The Journal whines and whimpers
and appeals to business men and the
public to give it support, and stop this
paper. How does such a manly appeal
strike the average business man any
way? The Herald has the field here
for legitimate purposes, and means to
keep it. We hope our neighbor will be
able to live and prosper. We ask no
favors which we do not fairly earn, and
are not fairly entitled to. We have been
informed that our neighbor is a yery
wealthy man(?) coining money in his
business, (?) and think he ought to be
satisfied with that, and let the unfortu
nates in the newspaper business alone.
Out business is all we expected, to start
with and so prosperous that we enlarge
our weekly to an eight page paper this
coming week.'aud hope we shall deserve
the patronage in the future which we
have received iu the past.
Organization of the Growers and Breed'
crs of Pennsylvania.
Pittsburg, Pa., May 24. Prominent
wool-growers of Pennsylvania to the
number of nearly 100 met in this city
today and organized the Pennsylvania
Wool-Growers and Sheep-Breeders' as
sociation, of which John McDowell, of
Washington county, was elected presi
dent. Eight counties were represented
Statistics were presented showiug that
Pennsylvania ranks third among the
states in the wool industry. Resolutions
were adonled denouncing the new tariff
law as an unjust discrimination against
the wool -goo wers and inimical to their
interest., demanding that congressmen
from the Ohio valley endeavor in the
next congress to m roc tire the re-enact
ment of the taritTon wool; and attack
ing Senator Sherman ftr luartle-ly vet
ing with their enemies to ruiu their Ltis
iness. A number of speeches v. . re
made, . elaborating the principles' set
forth in the resolution. The Hon. A.
A. Sprague, of Ohio, spoke on the vital
aspects of tho wool and kindred Inter
ests, nc said the wool-growers had
been betrayed ; they had been misused;
aad the time lnd come when a combi
nation of the wool interests wa3 abso
lule'y necessary t protect the business
from becoming the victim of political
and hostile tariff enemies. Ejc.
noted watering places, where fashion
reigns supreme. Thousands visit Eu
rope every year; some with profits to
themselves, and all with profit to their
entertainers, who are convinced that
all Americans are overflowing with
money, and desirous of paying two
prices for everything they get. Rut
the most intelligent class of Ameiican
people who have lung held thut it is
the part of gx;d sense as weli as pat
riotism to see a good deal of uur own
country before going abroad, e.t e of
late years exerting a consideiable in
fluence in turning the tide of tourit
travel toward the sea cost, the lakes
and the mountains of Uiicle Sam's
wonderful domain. The demand for
pleasure resorts increases with the in
crease of wealth and population.
It is only within the pst deeudu
that the Missouri Valley has begun to
he a factor in anv calculations as to
the spending of money and the support
of watering places.' Rut the great
states of Missouri, Iowa, Kansas and
Nebraska, have now accumulattd so
much wealth that their people can
many of them afford to seek pleasure
abroad. It is these, I am convinced,
that the Rocky Mountain snimmr re-j
sorts will have to look for their prin- j
cipal support. I espiJt to see ti e j
present wonderful growth of Kansas ;
and Nebraska continued, until they
rank with the wealthiest states of the
Union"; and I dare not venture a pre
diction as to the population they will
contain within half a century, for fear
that I might be regarded as wholly
visionary if not partially insane.
Their people w ill soon have plenty of
money to spend ; and it is ;ui instinct
with them not to seek in the East what
they can find in the West. Trutn twelve
to twentj-four hours' rid upon the
cars will take them into the very heart
of the loftiest portion of the Rocky
Mountains, where the summits are
beautifully covered with perpetual
snow, and where it is necessary to
sleep under heavy blankets during the
hottest portion of the summer. Here
also are deep canons, beautiful parks,
innumeral springs, flashing trout
brooks aad, added to all. almost cloud
less sky; and in Colorado the most ro
mantic scenery, and the most beauti
ful resorts, may be readily reached byr
rail. There are eiyht places in Colo
rado where railways cross mountain
passes at an altitude varying from two
miles to two and one-quarter miles
above the level of the sea.
To those who do not care to "'rough
it, Colorado can alrealy otter numer
ous resorts where healing waters, cool
breezes and romantic scenery, eo-exist
with hotels that would do credit to
any Eastern watering place, and where
wealth ar.d fashion disport themselves.
Chief of these are Idaho Springs and
Manitou. The latter, especially, has
many fine hotels, and is near t he beau
tiful city of Colorado Springs, where
one of the finest hotels in the State
to be called " The Antlers," is to be
opened this week The walks and
drives in the vicinity of Manitou are
especially fine the Pike's Peak trail,
Garden of the Gods, Glen Eyrie, CheyJ
enne and Williams canons, and the
Cave of the Winds, being among the
Tlere in Denver the Exposition has
stimulated many public enterprises
that without it the city might never
have known. Without the Exposition,
the Circle Railway, which now has
over Qve miles of track laid, and will
eventually encircle the town, must
have been held in abeyance for many
years, but its Exposition trade made
it profitable from the start, and now a
company is engaged in platting and
beautifying a large park, five miles
out, to which the Circle Railway rur.s.
This will be a great boon to Denver
people, as heretofore the city has had
no paik, if we except a few well
shaded lager beer gardens along the
Platte. The new park has fine trees
and shrubbery, plenty of water from
the Platte, a largo canal, and a number
of large and beautiful springs. The
proprietors propose to exclude liquor,
and all improper characters, and make
it a resort for families and pie-nic ex
cursions. It is beyond the Exposition
and will no doubt attract many of the
Exposition visitors, who can spend a
portion of the day in the Exposition
building, and afterward close the day
with a visit to the park.
The prospects of the Exposition
grow brighter day by day, and it prom
ises to exceed in magnitude the most
-anguif.es expectations of the mana
gers. Governor J. N. Irwin, of Idaho,
is now in the city, and states that he
will urge npon the peopls of that ter
ritory the importance of a full repre
sentation, and that Idaho w ill require
an increasid space for her exhibit this
