As tho prosecuting officer of the

His appointment Is distinctively

From n political standpoint tho se

"I will not say that," ho replied.
"I put the wholo matter Into the
hands of the Wyoming delegation In

Which probably means that Mr.

that Senator Warren handed It In to

tclf stated that he had received no
Information In regard to his appoint

sure of It, mid was leeching congiat
ulutlous In his ortlco.
Atkinson was a dark horse mid

that he was n candidate for the posi

been putting in some good licks In

work duriiiK tho past season, aver-
ago extraction 91.28 per cent. This
season we have commenced grinding
night nnd day, nnd have alread)
mnnufnctiiied about 3000 tons sugar.
Owing to the rather wet weather
during the latter part of December

has been somewhat low; however.
samo Is gradually Improving and we

Wo have bulla one more new reser

To Judge from tho )leld of sonio of
the Irrigated low land fields, which
we have already partly hai vested, we
must say that Irrigation Is a success;
to be nblo to give tho 'cane water
durfng a short. dry spell has given
exceedingly good results. Soiuovof
