THE CAR FAMINE.
There is a notible shortage of
the Western railroads. Beets
are delayed and freezing for lack
of cars. Coal is lying on top of
the ground, while a hundred
miles away it is selling at fantas
tic prices i because of lack of
cars. The railroads are losing
freight, the farmers are losing
their crops and the coal dealers
ere losing their market, all be
cause there are not enough cars
. to go round,
This is a situation that will
bear investigation. J What the
exact cause of the shortage is
the News does not knowi It
may be that the country has out
grown the railroadsi It may be
that the agricultural interests
have underestimated their needs.
It may be that the roads have
been lax in finding out the duties
they wei'e likely to be called up
on to perform. The News is on
ly sure that the shortage exists;
that it is causing enormoüs loss
and vexation; that it ought tobe
someone's business to sed that
this does not occur agaim
There are a number of organi
zations formed for the "boost
ing" of Colorado., The News
would like to suggest that here
is a subject exactly suited to
their wishes. Let these associa
tions take tip the matter of car
shortage with the railroads, and
feee what can be done Rock

Colo. Tho distance .they drove

The different stock associa
tions of this section oí country,
we suggest, should join in and
make a united effort to remedy
this shortage. v'

The Masons Have Completed
Plans for a City Cemetery
And Ask Your Help.
The Masonic . Fraternity has,
after long years of more or less
effort, finally succeeded in being
able to present a proposition to
tne community for a cemetery,
that now looks to be a very ex
cellent plan. '
It is believed that if about twelve
hundred dollars can be secured
by general subscription the plan
can be carried through. W'This
plan includes the removal of the
bodies of all persons who have
no friends to remove them to the
new grave; tho surveying and
platting, with all lots and blocks
distinctly marked arm nunbered;
fencing with a very substantial
fence and the payment for the
laud, which is locates within one
and a. half miles from town and
consists of ten acres of as nice
level rich soil as can be found
and entirely free from stones.
As planned this ground will be
laid out in streets and driveways,
with blocks and lots of convenient
size for the purpose of providing
later for water.
''.The Masons are not undertak
ing this with any idea of making
money at all, but a cemetery must
have somebody who will become
responsible to tho public for its
maintenance and as individuals
they will pay as liberally as any
to secure this much needed im
provement and they will, by the
means of lots sold afterwards, be
able to have the grounds proper
ly looked after, not only fora
short time but perpetually. t
Now the plan of the cemetery
and all particulars'' will be fully
explained by the subsciption pa
per that will be circulated, and it
ra certainly mosi aeiraoie inai
every one will do his share in
a iding this Veiy worthy work.
