stry, he has never had a strike, a shut-down, or a lock-out, and no concern has more employees who have grown gray in its service. They number many scores of men and women who have worked for it from a dozen to twenty years. At the other end of the line in Boston, the work is done with equal zeal and discretion. Over twenty traveling salesmen and thirty office-employees are engaged in distributing the manufactures of the company, while the branch stores in New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Denver, and San Francisco almost double this staff. It is not often that it can be said that a young man undertakes the management of a business within a year of graduation (Mr. Davis is a Harvard ‘83 boy), and builds it up to so high a plane, without a single period of relapse. In each year since 1882 the annual sales have increased, the credit has bettered, and the standing of the concern become more firm. It has steadily discounted its purchases of raw material, and even during panic years ha

All but one of the majority were from the free States. The nays from the free States (thirteen in all) were Democrats, John Kelly and Wheeler of New York; Cadwallader, Florence, and Jones of Pennsylvania; English and Miller of Indiana; Allen, Harris, and Marshall of Illinois; Hall of Iowa, and Denver of California. The Boston Advertiser, July 16, classified the vote. except John Scott Harrison of Ohio, elected as an American. Three or four Fillmore men (conservative Whigs) and two Northern Democrats voted for the expulsion, and also eight members—who voted against admitting Kansas under the Topeka Constitution. There were few absentees, and the anti-Nebraska members kept together better than in any vote during the session. Those naturally infirm of purpose were carried along by the p

romised not only rest and change, but an opportunity for studying glacial phenomena over a broad region of prairie and mountain which Agassiz had never visited. They were to meet at Chicago, keep on from there to St. Paul, and down the Mississippi, turning off through Kansas to the eastern branch of the Pacific Railroad, at the terminus of which they were to meet General Sherman with ambulances and an escort for conveyance across the country to the Union Pacific Railroad, returning then by Denver, Utah, and Omaha, and across the State of Iowa to the Mississippi once more. This journey was of great interest to Agassiz, and its scientific value was heightened by a subsequent stay of nearly two months at Ithaca, N. Y., on his return. Cornell University was then just opened at Ithaca, and he had accepted an appointment as non-resident professor, with the responsibility of delivering annually a course of lectures on various subjects of natural history.

Jula Ward Howe, Reminiscences: 1819-1899, Chapter 17: the woman suffrage movement (search)
d account of our many meetings would be out of place in this volume, but some points in connection with them may be of interest. It often happened that we visited cities in which no associations of women, other than the church and temperance societies, existed. After our departure, women's clubs almost invariably came into being. Our eastern congresses have been held in Portland, Providence, Springfield, and Boston. In the Empire State, we have visited Buffalo, Syracuse, and New York. Denver and Colorado Springs have been our limit in the west. Northward, we have met in Toronto and at St. John. In the south, as already said, our pilgrimages have reached Atlanta and New Orleans. We have sometimes been requested to supplement our annual congress by an additional day's session at some place easily reached from the city in which the main meeting had been appointed to be held. Of these supplementary congresses I will mention a very pleasant one at St. Paul, Minn., and a very us

Two othettacked and menaced on their left, the Confederates retired, leaving twelve dead on the ground. Denver and Smith met at the cross-roads, where they stationed their pickets. This engagement was the cedge of this clearing. The attack was to be made in front by one of Sherman's brigades, that of Denver, while another, under M. L. Smith, was to turn the enemy's position through the woods on the ease left and crossing Philips Creek near its source, it proceeded to take position on the right of Denver.

News from Pike's Peak. Fort Kearney, Nov. 17.--The Western stage coach, which left Denver on the 12th inst., with a full complement of passengers, the mails, the messenger of Hinckley & Co.'s express and $11,000 in treasure, passed here at an early hour yesterday, bound for Omaha, but by some mistake the telegraph package for this office was not handed in until this morning.-- By it we have the following Denver City rates: The Denver Mountaineer extra of the 11th last, says: "The Western stage coach reached here at half past 2 o'clock on the morning of the 10th inst., bringing Hinckley & Co.'s messenger, with a single dispatch containing all the presidential election returns received at Fort Kearney by telegraph up to the evening of the 11th inst. By private correspondence we learn that this news reached Denver and was published and started six hours ahead of that taken out by the Pony Express.
es in favor of the former. As near as can be ascertained, the Legislature stands as follows: Senate — Douglas (Democrat,) 9, Breckinridge (Democrat,) 5; Republicans 4 House --Douglas (Democrat,) 40; Breckinridge (Democrat,) 21; Republicans 19. Of the 17 Senators who hold over, 11 are understood to be Douglas, 4 Breckinridge, and 2 Republicans. There are already numbers of Douglas Democrats aspiring for Mr. Gwin's place in the United States Senate--among them, Governor Downey, General Denver, James A. McDougall and others. The contributions to the Washington Monument fund on election day, at San Francisco, Sacramento and Marysville, exceeded $1,300 Returns from the balance of the State are not yet received. More than $100,000 was wagered on the result of the State election in San Francisco alone, and some parties are suspicious that the election returns may have been falsified in some instances by parties interested in the bets. The total vote cast in San Francisc
Western Dueling. --Duels in the far West seem to be as publicly announced as horse races here. A dispatch from Denver, Pike's Peak, dated the 28th inst., has the following announcement: A duel is to be fought at 10 ½ o'clock to-day, between a Mr. Riley and Charles Harrison. --The former is the challenging party. He is a young lawyer, formerly from Virginia, and has been acting as deputy sheriff at Mountain City for some time past. Charles Harrison keeps the Criterion Saloon in this city. The weapons appointed are navy pistols; distance fifteen feet; arms to be drawn after the word "fire" is given.
coalitions with opponents. It will probably lead to combinations contrary to partisan usage on the Senatorial question. The Assembly has not yet organized. A desperate struggle over the election of a Speaker is progressing. John Conness, a Broderick-Douglas Democrat, is the leading candidate, having received the caucus nomination of that wing, but changed no Republican or Breckinridge support, and seems destined to defeat, although the contest is likely to continue several days. Gen. Denver and J. N. McDougall are regarded as the leading candidates for the United States Senate. The impression among conservative men is that neither will be elected, as the nomination of either in the Douglas caucus would not ensure his election without considerable outside support. The suits against Harrassethy, the former refiner at the San Francisco Mint, are set apart for trial on the 5th of February next.
