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 pound 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 -ruption from snow •teilFguarantee free coin munication every day in the year., • . 'file northern tier of cid wisely appreci ative of the immense possibilities placed within their reach by the Pacific Railway, arc bending every energy to secure the now -comprehended trade of the plains. Their representatives are active and yealetis guardi ans of their interests in Congress; shall ours be laggard in fiseering our internal commerce and securing for us the traffic naturally our own? Every Congressman from Kansas, - Missouri, Southern Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, East Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Penn sylvania and New York has a special geo graphic,al interest in the extension of this central railway to the mines of Colorado and across the continent to San Francisco, while the entire South are vitally concerned in its construction . since, for years to come, it promises them the only practicable western outlet for-their commerce, as well as their Inostdirect channel of import fromthe whole Pacific coast. • Corr op.lavnso.—On . the question of bow large a sum may be saved from a small sala ry, a lady save In an exchange : .11y income is $8 per week,which I spend in the following manner :---Board and wash ing, $4.25; church contributions, 25 cents; car fare and books, 50 cents.; clothes, $1.50, total, $6.50.
