spelling is indicated with reference to a certain city: Canon City
(p. 77 and elsewhere), Canyon City (p. 400), and Cannon City
(Index, p. 499).
In places the composition is extremely weak. Occasionally
there is a series of sentences beginning with the same pronoun
and sometimes the writer changes both the pronoun and its
number without indicating any corresponding change in the
antecedent. For example, in summarizing the achievements of
the Legislature of the Territory of Jefferson he says: "It pro-
vided for twelve counties, nine of which were organized. It
incorporated Denver City and many roads and ditches. It pro-
vided for an ideal revenue system - a system that taxed every
occupation, except the two in which most of them were en-
gaged. It taxed every occupation except farming and mining.
They levied a poll tax of one dollar per person which turned
out to be very unpopular in some of the mountain districts.
They adopted what was in effect a protective tariff when they
levied a tax of one quarter of one per cent on all 'foreign'
merchandise sold" (p. 188).
