W. R. Davis and family lett last
Thursday morning for Denver, where
the Judge is seeking a wider field
for his efforts. He came to Lamar
early in ’B6 and assumed control of
the Register, which he owned and
edited until he sold out two weeks
ago. Judge Davis’ republicanism
was always spelled with a capital R,
and his loyalty to the community in
which he lived was beyond dispute.
Ills many friends will miss his
genial presence from our streets, and
the Register but voices the senti
ment of all when it wishes him and
his estimable family, wherever they
may go, that prosperity which they
| so well deserve, and commend them
! to the people among whom they may
; cast their lot.
Parties receiving the Register
this week will please consider it an
invitation to subscribe. The paper
is not what we expect to make it ih
a few weeks, when it will bo enlarg
ed and greatly improve. It will be
our constant endeavor to make it
pre eminently tUo people’s paper;
loyal to the county in general and
just to its enemies.
