An especially significant phase of J the opposition to Prohibition just now quite prominent, is the demand for “free raw materials.” This is the first decree to which the free trade neophyte is introduced, and in which he is expected to become proficient, preparatory to assuming the more advanced altitude of the Cohden Club and its representatives in the Ifnited States. !)• mat'd for "free raw materials” -erves well f.»r a rallying cry, he cause of its Ambiguity. It is suffi cientlv flexible to sail the most f«s lidious voter—provided he should not lie too inquisitive. So long as he is not called upon for particulars, our tariff reformer gets on swimmingly. Force him to enumerate those material* he would include in the proposed exemption from duty, and it will be found that his logic followed to its legitimate sequence lands at absolute free trade in nearly every article competing with the products of domestic raanu faeturers. In the iron industry not an article short of the very highest product would escape; while with Irv goods.only ready.made garments md fabrics requiring no further nia nipulalion to tit them for u*e would he exempted from the comprehensive list. For in the entire range of man ufactured products there are but few that do not become the base, the “raw material,” of some more advanced industry. In the case of clothing, the finished cloth is the raw material of the tailor, wool of the weaver, corn and grass of the sheep owner. In iron, ore comes to the smelter, pig iron to the maker of Inrs, and these in their turn to the makers of cutlery, mat hinery and other articles, niuiiv of which—such aa nails, hinges, gas utpes, etc., —are but auxiliary to the business of workers in other indus tries. The cry for "free raw material” is a dtag net, just now most persist entlv manipulated by freetraders foi ths capture of recruits to the Cohden policy. In vain should it be set in the presence of intelligent voters. L. Wirt MarkhAin was a pleasant caller at the News office yesterday, and was enthusiastic over the pros pects of the Arkansas valley in gen and of Lamar in particular. The big irrigation canal scheme of Henry and Keen is having already a marked ef fect on the valley, and creameries and canning factories and flouring mill enterprises are the order of the day. At Lamar, Fred Harvey, who manages the eating houses on the liue i of the Santa Fe, will erect a creamery and canning factory for the purpose lof supplying his railway hotels all along the road, while a second can ning factory will be erected by Long mont parties. A flouring mill is »Im> :an assured fact in time to grind the : crop of the present season. The two j great ditch enterprises of the year are Mr. Keen’s South Side ditch and Mr. Henry's Bob Creek ditch on the north side. All along the valley from Pueblo to the east line of the stale agricultural development is in progress, and all of the towns of the valley, Rocky Ford, La Junta, Lar Animas, Lamar and Granada are des tined to experience a substantial and prosperous growth. The valley of the Arkansas has begun its devel opment, and in its development, and in its future may have rivals but no superior.—Denver News. Up to last night there was no abater ment in the gale which has been con stantly blowing for the past twelve days. Its parallel has scarcely been known in the valley.—Fort Garland Republican. Granada is enjoying a season of pleasure now. Churob socials, con certs dances, magic lanterns and poker games, take your,pboicc.—Gra nada Exponent. The steady centralization and dom-1 ination of wealth goes on, Rcpubli can simplicity is decreasing. Mono and its power war great. The rich man is nought after and worshipped by society, church and state. An adventurous or lucky boor who ‘ strikes oil” is solicited to lead soci etv, church and state, and real merit —refinement, education, intelligence, industry pure life—counts hut little Loo)c around you, is it not largely so? The patriot, the Christian the human itarian has much cause for alarm. A revolution is going on, ceaselessly, steadily, powerfully, and will go on. until society, church and state are dominated bv wealth. A millonaire in a community will organize and control its society; the pastor of the church he patronizes will not offend his views upon morality and creed; the state will demand his services in places of honor. One millionaire can modify the orthodox creed of a minis ter more than the edict of an ecclesi astical council. And is this growing power desirable? If not. what is the remedy? You suggest a theory and it is only ns a breath of wind. Manv breezes blow against some strong lower—drift by unseen and the tower ••--maims seep and even admired bv those who knew not the breeze pass ed on. Only an earthquake mav shatter the shaft; when will the oath quake come? Not soon—probably centuries hence—but it will come af ter all. Meantime the student of his lory sees in all another cycle of changing conditions. Hoisington Hank Reporter. Mr. Brown kept boa. Jers. Around his table sat Mr. Brawn. Mrs. Brown, Mrs Andrews, the village milliner. Mr. Black, the baker, Mr Jordan, the carpenter, and Mr. Hadley, a flour, feed and lumber mereh-mt. Mr. Brown took out of his pocket book a $lO note and handed it to his wife, - lying; ‘ Here are $lO towards the S2O I promised you.” Mrs. Brown handed it to M«s. Andrews, saying; “That pays for mv new bonnet ” Mrs. Andrews said to Mr. Jordan, as she handed him the note, “that will pay for your work on my counter” Mr. Jordan handed it to Mr. Hadley and requested him to give him credit for that amount on his lumber hill Mr. Hadley gave the note back to Mr. Brown, savin: “That pays $lO on •ny board.” Mr. Brown passed it to Mrs. Brown with the remark that that paid her the S2O he had promised She, in turn, paid it to Mr. Black, to -ettle her bread and pastry account, who handed it to Mr Hadley, will - ing credit for that amount on his flo«r bill. He again returned it to Mr. Brown, with the remark that it settled that month’s board. —Mr. Brown put it back into his pocket, exclaiming that he nev*r thought :i *lO note would go so far. Within five minutes the bill paid S9O indebt edness.—Meeker News. The game chicken is the king of fowls, and is erroneously supposed to bo good for fighting only This is a mistake, for games arc f:»i«* layers and for fine flavored meat they are without a rival aud are plumper than they appear. Unfortunately the breeding of fancy points has weak ened their constitutions, and at pres ent thev are not as hardv as we would likw them to be. The new Indian games are claimed to be the best market fowl in existence. They are certainly handsome in plumage and remarkably rapid growers, but the price asked for these birds precludes the idea of farmers investing at pres ent except for the luxury or fancy.— Field and Farm. The wearing of martingale rings as ornaments in the toilet of young ladies is a craze at present, A sash is made, and to the ends of this is at tached celluloid, ivory and brass rings, these being purchased at har ness shop.—Las Vegas Optic. Professor Dujardin Beaumeiz, Par is, Franc**, in a lecent lecture at the Cochin Hospital, Paris, France, oa the treatment of nervous diseases said: I need not hero speak of the advantages and dangers of morphine. I have many times discussed this subject, showing that if morphine is an admirable analgesic medicament, it is also the most dangerous of all by reason of the fact that the patient becomes accustomed to and depend ent on the morphine injections, and **nds in becoming a morphiomaniao. It may be affirmed that morpioma nia has become one of the vices of the day, and we inay almost lay it down as a rule that any patient who for thirty consecutive days take mor phine injections will ever after be a victim to the habit, even when the symptoms of the primary malady shall have completely disappeared; and it will thenceforth be a matter of no little difficulty te cure the mor phine hahit, now become a disease more rebellious than the affection for which these injections were first or dered. The number of morphiomaniacs increase every day, and this deplora ble vice exists in all classes of so ciety. Unfortunately, our own pro fession is not exempt from this abuse, and I know quite a number of medi cal confreres who have been or are still victims of morphine.—Scientific American. If our county attorney ftdlows the letter of the law iu prosecuting delin quents who have failed to pay their military poll-tax before March Ist, there is likely to be some wailing and gnashing of teeth among the delin quents, as the law provides a fine of $25 each. This law was passed by the last Legislature, and is the.efore not very generally understood, and if it is rigidly enforced the State is likely to receive a large amount in fines and the county attorney will reap quite a harvest, as the Stautes allow hitn $lO of every $25 collected. La Junta Tribune. The employes of tWe Illinois Steel company, at Joliet, Ills., with th*- Protective Tariff club of northern Illinois, recently celebrated the vic tory for protection in the increase in wages of 20 per cent, at the rolling mills of Joliet. These workmen were reviled during the campaign by democats and free traders, who claimed that the result of republican victory would he a lowering of wagep. The workmen and citizens turned out and serenaded their first president, Nathan Bennett, at his bouse.—Pueb lo Merry Wot Id.

It surely went in. What was the name of it? Parson—“ Feed My Lambs.” Editor (alter searching through the paper)—Ah—yes—urn— here it is.

Here the city of Trinidad has been squandering itn means, and piling up its expenses in excess of its income, and issuing warrants beyond ibe le gal limit—and has been doing this for year*—and nobody has seemed to pay any attention to these matters. If any one dared to whisper that all was not going well, the public in general, with that happy-go-lucky spirit which has characterized most Trinidadians for the last two years especially, has disregarded the warn ing, and matters have gone on as heretofore.—Trinidad News. Editor to printer—You’ve ruined me. Iu describing tbe great ball, I wrote that the famous lecturer on dress wore nothing that was remark able. You’re printed it: “Mrs. B. wore nothing. That was remarka ble.” Get your inouey of the cashier and go. VYe’ve got no use for a man like you around here. —Life. The coming season will be a test one for Baca county.
