WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 14.
The long silence of Blood to the Bridles
Waite, of Colorado, gives rise to the awful
Binpioion that he is afflicted with lockjaw.
How serviceable that 150-mile an hour
train, proposed by Westinghouse nnd
Baldwin, would be to McKinley in airing
his presidential boom.
The action of the Las Vegas board of
education in excluding children nnder
seven years of age from the benefits of
the public schools of that city is ns in
just as it is arbitrary. Why not open a
Why not employ some of those Jack
son Hole newspaper correspondents as
blood detectives at the Holmes "castle"
in Chicago f Clearly men capable of
manufacturing nn Indian war out of one
dead Indian eould make something of
themselves if they had tbe Holmes case
to work on.
Judoino from the fact that 100 or more
delegates representing the soveral states
are talking free coinage and straight De
mocracy in the national capital to-day, it
would .appear that the cause of silver
isn't doing mnoh "dying out" as far as
Democracy is concerned. It is the gold
bugs and the Republicans who insist on
the "dying out" business.
Tnit Republicans of New York didn't
sneer very exteusively at the electoral
vote of "little Colorado" the clay after the
presidential eleotion in 187C, when the
three votes of that state would have given
the presidency to Tilden in spite of the
larceny of the votes of Florida, Louisiana
and South Carolina. The time may come
again when the Republicans will need
Colorado and need it mighty bad.
state, and other properties were put up
by the Pennsylvania Trust company, of
Reading, executor of Joseph C. Wright,

value of the properties was realiztd.
There were very few bidders. The face

Kansas farms, aggregating 720 acres, were
soid. A few years ago they were valued
at $25,000. The entire lot brought $2,315.
Some of the farms were settled during the
boom, then improved and havesince been
Therefore when we read about wonder
ful yields of this or tha product in the
Arkansas valley or any other valley we
need not go into n furore and try to get
options on nil the farm land in sight be
fore it goes up to some tremendous price,
for it is not going to do anything of the
kind, or if it does you can get it next
year, when the reaotion conies, for a
ridiculously low figure.
It must be understood, of course, that
all this is in referenoe to lands used for
agricultural purposes. Such ns are situ
ated near a city, or are reputed to con
tain oil or mineral, may have a certain
additional speculative value. But no ag
ricultural laud can have a farm value ex
cept snoh as is based on the actual cash
value it yields. To try to give it nny
further value is like trying to invent per
petual motion or a self-propelling ma
chine. It oan not be done.
These remarks, says the Pueblo Chief
tain, are freely offered in the confident
belief that it is directly contrary to the
interests of the people, whether in city
or country, to hae land held nt high
prices. City values are an entirely diff
erent thing. If a man does not want to
pay $100 a front foot let him walk tint
to the suburbs to buy lots it will do him
good. But agricultural land ought to be
kept down to the lowest possible price,
and by the inexorable law of output and
intrinsic worth it is going to be.
THE PRICE OF LAND.
Just now there is apparent all over the
western country, a sort of boom in farm
ing lands, such as usually occurs when
manufacturing and other employments
nre depressed. In consequence laud
values have gone up to some extent, but
beyond the actual figures at which they
can be sold there is an indefinable idea of
what is "going to be," just as, in the
cities when they are having the good
times, there is the exhilarating prospect
of what is "going to be."
Now let us ask whether it is either
probable or desirable that agricultural
lands should go up to any fancy prices.
We have already seen what beoame of the
"going to be" in the cities, and have wit
nessed the bright hopes and sanguine
predictions which have fabulous values
to their suburban lands flattened out like
the shapeless, helpless balloon whose gas
If the idea that any western lan's are
"going to be" worth vast sums per aore,
either in the near or far future, is well
based, it would be logioal to suppose that
in an older country we would find farm
land held at tremendous figures. But a
casual investigation will show that fine
farming land, which does not have to pay
any ditch assessments or to lie limited in
its water Bupply by expansive and non
expansive dividing boxes, can be bought
in northern Missouri for $25 to $10, in
southern Missouri for $15 to $25, and
Becond-olaM land at $5 to $7.50 nn acre.
In south central Ohio, within the rich
belt of the Ohio valley yet away from the
cold lake winds, fair land is offered at
$12.50, and in Kentucky rolling yet fertile
land can be obtained for the same
amount which has under it beds of fine
eoal five feet thiok. In Tennessee mar
velonsly rich land can be had almost for
In the New York Sun and Philadelphia
Record advertisements have been run
ning for many months offering five-aore
tracts of good, well drained, partly wood
ed farm land in New Jersey for $75, or
, $15 an acre, lying right between the two
largest oities in America.
It is notorious that in New England
hundreds of farms, with good houses Bud
great splendid barns, have for years been
abandoned because they oan neither be
old nor rented. The deer have so in
creased in numbers that last winter a
herd of them trotted through the streets
of a Vermont town.
Going aoross the ocean, official reports
just published in England (how that the
ratable value of all the land in England

agricultural depression. In Germany

Messrs. Darling and Sneed of the Den
ver & Rio Grande railway visited the
Times Saturday last. Their mission to
this county was an important one, that
of computing by personal inspection and
inquiry the probnbleoutput of fruit for the
purpose of considering the question of a
reduotion in rates from Durango to the
large centers snoh as Denver and Pueblo.
The railway men have visited the larger
orchard j, and gained all the information
possible. They assert that the people
should commence the reform movement
at this end. First, they say, that the cost
of hanlnge to Durango is too much; next,
then, the price of the apple box lumber
is too great. We can not expect, so they
say, the railway to stand the loss oc
casioned by the prioe of haulage and
boxes, to ont down their rates so as to
save the ranchmen in these respects.
The railway must be paid a paying prioe
as well as tbe freighters, so they assert.

The soil of the Peoos Valley is of high average fertility, and nnder irrigation produces bountiful crops of
most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate and some of those of the semi
tropical zone. In such fruit as the peach, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot, neotarine, cherry, quince, etc.,
the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminence with California; while competent authority pronounoes its
upper portions in particular the finest apple country in the world.
Enormous yields of such forage crops as alfalfa, sorghum aud Egyptian oorn make the feeding of oattle
and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable occupation.
The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great value is beooming an important industry in
the Peoos Valley, a home market having been afforded 'for all that oan be raised, at a prioe yielding a

Lands with perpetual water-rights are for sale at low prices and on easy terms. The water supply of
the Peoos Valley has no equal in all the arid region for oonstanoy and reliability; and this with the superb
olimate, productive soil and the facilities afforded by the railway whioh extends through "the Valley's en
tire length, will oaue these lands to enjoy a constant, and at times rapid, increase in value.
The recent completion of the Pecos Valley Railway to RoBWell will cause the mire rapid settlement
and development of the upper portions of the Valley, inoluding the rioh Feliz seotion. The company has
recently purchased many of the older improved farms about Roswell, and has now for sale lands to meet
the wants of all raw lands, partially improved lands, as well as farms with houses, orchards and fields of
alfalfa and other orops. In the vicinity of Roswell several pieces of land have been divided iuto five nnd
