The Business and Railroad Prospects
of Colorado. •
AbodL tha middle of November last the
mareleusts Of Denver City. Colorado. organ* I
Lied a Board of 'Trade and elected the.usual STOVE WORKS!
compliment of officers: John W. Smith, Esq.,
is President, and Mr. Henry C. Leach, form- 1
erly or St Louis, Secretary. Since entering
upon their duties, the executive and other
officers have been untiring in - their efforts to
stimulate Interest in the business of their city ,
both there and throughout the emMtry, and
as a trims thereto have compiled statistics !
of the trade of Denver, which are published
in the first annual report of their Beare.
And though, as stated in their report, "the
exhibit represents the least active year in the I
history of Denver, covering a period of Indi
an war, when the main lines of travel, east
and west, . were almost closed by Indians,
and immigration virtually prohibited," the
statistics disclose a healthy activity in 'busi
ness, highly. treditable to the new city. Tho
following are the figures taken principally
from official returns in the Assessor's office:
Gross sales of merchandise, $5,948,000 00
Cash paid for freight, - 2,171,000 00
Pounds of freight received, 17,122,000 00 •
Sacks of flour sold, 70,886 00
Cash Value of lumber sold, 850,000 00 ,
250 buildings erected, valued at 722,650 00!
Cash value of goods manufac
tured in Denver; - 88i,000 00
Cash received for passengers by
stage lines, - - - 591,801 00
Cash received for express mat
ter, - • -
Gold shipped by Wells, Fargo
& Co., - -_, 1,560,000 00
Gold bought by banks, - 604,000 00
Gold and silver received by the
U. S. Branch Mint, - 289,168 70
Average 'cash deposits in banks, 741,000 00
Average loans and discounts by
banks, - 398,000 00
Eastern exchange sold by b'ks, 8,304,000 00 I
Amout of cash paid over bank
counters, • - - 71,870,000 00
' This amount does not represent the yield I
of gold for the Territory, nor even approxi
mate to it, as over one-half of the gold pass
es to the East in the hands of private parties. !
The principal yield of gold is from the
counties of Gilpin, Clear Creek and Summit,
and nearly all the gold from those counties is
• purchased tit Central City.
Such is a statement of the business of a
city, isolated from railroad communication
and reached only by stages or wagons across
the Plains, where insecurity from Indians is
- added to the present discomforts of travelers,
or slow transp o rtation of freight Yet, de- ,
spite all these drawbacks, the wealthy mines .
adjacent, with the vast freighting trade of ,
the Plains, have made Denver a well-built,
thriving city, with a business such as above
reported by her Board of Trades Though
attaining her present growth while remote
from railroad facilities, the past year has
greatly hastened the extension of the nation
al Pacific railways, and Denver, with all the
rich mining regions of-Colorado, has been
correspondingly benefited. The Omaha
- Union Pacific, in its western course, at Chey
enne, passes within 110 miles of Denver, and
the Union Pacific, Eastern Division, though
retaisred in its construction, is, to-day, 200
miles nearer Denver. than a year ago. '
This road being almost an air line between
St. Louis, Denver and the Colorado mining
, regions, its route and progress are vitally in
teresting to the former city and Missouri,
while scarcely less important to the whole
central railway system extending from New
York to Colorado. We learn from that com
pany that the Union Pacific Ralway, Eastern
Division, has reached Coyote Station, 335
miles west of its initial point on the •Missouri
ricer, at Kansas City, nnd, with the'opening
of spring, will be- rapidly constructed, via
Pond Creek or Fort Wallace, as far into Col
orado as its bonded subsidy extends. The
company are about applying to Congress for
further governmental aid. to secure the con
struction of their road through New Mexico
and Arizona to the Pacific, and in recent is
sues of our paper we urged the importance
of their obtaining this aid for national and
local development. We learn also that the
proposed extensibn southward has not caused
the company to abandon their line through
Colorado to a junction with the Omaha road;
but, in their application to Congress, they
have included the further issue of govern
ment bonds to assist its immediate construc
tion. The land grants, already theirs, embrace
the most arable soil of Colorado, and that best
adapted to speedy agricultural development,
while the contiguous extensive pineries and
coal fields promise both cross-ties for the rap
id construction and fuel for the cheap opera
tion of the road.
During the past summer Col. W. H. Green
wood (the war Topographical Engineer of
the Cavalry Corps, Army of the Cumberland)
surveyed the entire distance between Fort
Wallace (Pond Creek) and Denver, finding
an excellent railroad route. From these care
ful preliminary surveys, those of definite lo
cation will be rapidly made, while the con
struction of the road, if unretarded by Indi
ans, can go forward' at more than a mile a
day. From Denver westward to an intersect
" tion with the Omaha road, no topographical
difficulties exist, the "Eastern Division" being
. chiefly embarrassed to select, from the sever
al practicable routes, that•best -calculated to
laibserve the mining interests of Colorado,
thus promoting the rapid development of
these sources of public revenue and improve
ment of the national currency.
- The wealth of the mines west of Denver,
which have fostered and produced the flour
ishing towns of Central -City, Golden-City,
Blackhawk and Georgetown, has long at
tracted the attention of capitalists has made
the cost of transporting machinery enormous.
The speciment of gold and silver ores from
these mines, which we have seen at the office
of the Kansas Pacific Railway Company, are
or great richness, some of the silver ores from
the Georgetown mines yielding from $7OO to
41,200 per ton. Copper abounds in all the
auriferous and argentiferous ores of Colorado,
but from the comparative, inaccessibility of
the lodes and consequent cost of reduction,
has not been profitably worked: An idea of
the expense of Colorado mining now and
heretofore, with the slow and precarious
wagon transportation, may be gained from
the simple statement that the salt indispens
able for mining purposes, though manufac
tured in the South Park, costs ten cents per
And since under all these disadvantages
Colorado has sufficiently developed her mines
to yield a large proportion of the gold and
silver produced in the United States, how al
most illimitable will be their productive ca
pacity when the Eastern Division of the Pa
cific Railroad unlocks her _mineral treasures.
And nothing but similar legislation for the
Central, to that already accorded the North
ern and California Pacific Railroads, is re
quired to* assure the construction of this
much-needed thoroughfare within a few
Months. Capitalists are ready to add their
means to the loan of the Government, while
an energetic and responsible corporation will
prowchte the' great work, affording continu
ous and rapid rail transit between Denver or'
the mountain cities of Colorado and St. Louis„
Cincinnati. Pittsburgh. Philadelphia, New
York and ficiston. The central railway sys
tem thus prolonged westward will enjoy a
milder climate. whill! he ahsence of inter
