The publishers of THE TIMES have made arrangements to have papers carried to Buena Vista by special courier. All persons wishing to mail THE TIMES can leave them at this office.

A NEWSPAPER, in a rich and growing mining camp like Aspen, is more than an advantage; it is a necessity. That necessity is two-fold, for the newspaper in a mining camp assumes two duties, the one being to furnish the camp with the news of the outside world with a knowledge of the production and of the strikes in the camps.

These two duties THE ASPEN TIMES will try to fulfill, and we promise to make things lively for the camp and for the capitalists. We are not here to boom Aspen, for we believe that the Aspen mines and prospects will boom themselves. We believe that mineral, like money, talks better than brag, and we propose to leave the brag to the camps that want it. We don’t. If we cannot make the assays and mill-runs talk, we won’t talk. But when the ore runs big, we want to be there to say so.

For news from the outside world, we shall make the fullest possible arrangements, and we expect to get the news quickly and accurately.

In entering the field, we ask nothing but a square deal and we promise a square deal in return. We mean business, and we’ve come to stay.
