Senator Quay Bays he had a dream the other night, a very pleasant one. He thought he bhw Blaine coming. The next Governor of Massachussotta possesses the dietinguishod and scholarly name of Crapo, and not Craps, as some misguided and illiterate Western editors have seen fit to make it. The subject of ex Senator Ingalls' lec ture is to bo “Eli and Dennis.” The Senator's life is a better lecture on that subject than any which even his fertile imagination cun evolve. Sick or well, Bright's disease or no disease, candidate or no candidate, Sec retary or citizen, James G. Blaine holds a bigger place in the popular heart of this country to-day than any other liv ing man. Ex. Sugar touched the lowest point this week that it has ever reached in this country, selling in Philadelphia at twen ty-five itounds for a dollar. Mr. Blaine’s reciprocity scheme, as his opponents call it, is working wonders for the country. At the election for members of the Legislature iu the Territory of Utah this week the Democratic party won a sweep ing victory. Thus is the wisdom of our National law makers in refusing to ad mit it to the sisterhood States clearly demonstrated. The Lamar Register has been pur chased by Messrs. Soeberger and Merrill. It has been for some time past one of the rankest republican sheets in the valley, and the new management will see that it maintains its reputation in that re spect. Success to the buys. —Garden City Herald. The financial statement of the Atchi son, Topeka and Santa Fo Railroad published the first of the week shows a very substantial increase of business over last year. This is caused by the increased prosperity of the country trib utary to it, and is most noticeable in the groat Arkansas valley. The decision of the divorce judge at Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to call a halt on the promiscuous grantiug of divorces has caused consternation among the nu merous temporary citizens of that place, who are seeking relief from the burden some ties which prevent them from mar rying some other fellow's wife or some other woman’s husband. One of the most distressing rases on record of the injustice of hanging a man on purely circumstantial evidence has come to light in n Nebraska town, whero a man has been found alive for the mnr dor of whom a man was hanged nearly eight years ago. Tt has started tho agi tation of the question of making impris onment for life the extentof punishment in cases whore only circumstantial evi dence ean be produced. Tho Farmers’ Alliance after sending P.ffer, Simpson and Willets to Kentucky and making a vigorous campaign for ten weeks, succeeded in polling only 3,000 votes at the Stale election last Monday. The Republicans did not, have a popular or agressi ve candidate for Governor, and the Democrats made a decided gain over their majority in tho last campaign. Ev idently there is no hope for reform from the old Commonwealth. The Irrigation Age published at Den ver, came to us this weok, all spick and span, with a new cover and headings, and a good write-up of Prowers county. The Age is the only paper published in the interest, of irrigation in the West and handles its subject in a masterly manner. If the Reoister readers will follow tho teachings of the Irrigation Age and the Lamar Register, and have a Bible han dy for reference, success will crown their efforts. Tho magnitude of the alfalfa indus i try in Colorado is something enor mous for so young a State. Colorado contains 101,85-1 acres of this magnif icent hay and pasture crop. Placing tho estimated yield at the low average of four tons to the acre, aud we find I hat 0*47,410 tons ore produced annually, and valued at $(3.00 a ton the crop is wi r h to the State 183,884,490 a trifle less than one-seventh of the total value of the mineral output of the State Review ami Farmer. Tho quarter centennial of the Grand Army of the Republic, which took place at Detroit this week, was the grandest of the many encampments that have been held by that glorious organization. Tho old veterans recognize that death must soon thin their ranks, and time will enfeoblo thoso who still remain, nnd thus cause a gradual decrease in tho grandure of their future meetings. They have, therefore, striven to make this anniversary the most brilliant in the his tory of their order, nnd sui-cess hat* crowned their efforts. THE LAHAH REGISTER, The only Republican Paper pub lished at Lamar, the Comity Beat of a strong Republican County. SIJH* per year. NO. 9. Wake Up. Harvest is about ended and Prowers county, in the second year of its existence as agricultural territory, comes bravely to the front with 150,000 bushels of wheat, about 35,000 tons of alfalfa and oats, barley, rye and corn in proportion. It is safe to say that next year these amounts will l>o doubled, aR thou* sands of acres are being and will be broken' Not only will the acreage be increased but the yield from the old ground will be materially increased. These facts and figures can easily be ver ified by investigation or inquiry. But as the Register stated lust week, these facts have not been appreciated by many at home, and of course not realized abroad. * * * We have too many men, who, while they do little themselves, lack the ener gy or inclination to watch the industry and advancement of others. They labor under the delusion that everything is going to the “demnition bow-wows," and their song and story is burdoned with adversity. If some man more energetic and more pushing than under takes a work, the great benefit of which to this community can scarcely t>e esti mated, these croakers, who hold their sway on sidewalks and goods boxes, throw every stone in their reach in his way, and then they sit and curse the times, but never crawl out of their shells to see the progress and prosperity around them. Their existence is a nightmare, and while they dream of woe, others are building castles over them. They make it a point to croak and detract from eve rything that relates to home, perhaps not from a spirit designedly malicious but on account of thoughtlessness, and the ignorance of their surroundings. The feeling of calamity engendered spreads like a contagion, and when they hear their own tales echoed by voices of strangers they deem them slander. These croakers and calamity howlers don’t seem to realize that they themselves are the fountain heads of all such falsehoods. * * * The time has come when this howling, and abuse of the inen, who are doing so much towards swinging old Prowers county gloriously to the front, must be made odious. Let us stand by those who are standing by us. The man who builds a ditch that brings to our land “that Got! of agriculture—Water,” the man who faithfully toils from day today and cuusoh “two blades of grass to grow where there was but one,” the man, who conducts in our midst any honest enter prise of whatsoever kind or naturo, is a friend to the community. He is at least entitled to our well wishes and should not bo compelled to contend with our antagonism. The Town We Live In. It is a common occurence to hear citi zens of western towns complain that are often enllod upon to contribute mon oy for the public good. They are asked to share in the exponso of advertising their city, obtaining a new industry, or accomplishing pome other result aiming at the common good rather than at their own personal benefit. There are times when this is felt as a burden, and when even patriotic citizens turn their faces in aversion from the man with with a sub scription paper. No public-spirited cit izen should allow himself to be possessed by such a feeling, and in a western town all citizens should bo public-spirited. Next to a man's fam ily and business, nothing should stand nearer to his heart than the town in which he lives. It is his homo. It is the place where lie wins his competence and educates his children. lie wants to make it as populous, as thrifty and as widely known as possible. He cannot afford to be indifferent to anything which will further these ends. It is true that demands for such purposes are frequent and that it is necessary to use some dis crimination in cliosing methods, but in a general sense it can be said that a town that is not worthy of the devotion of its citizens in making it widely known, and greatly prosperous, is a town which is not worth while to live in at all. Western mon should remember that such public service is the penalty of living in the ambitious West where the glories of civilization are in the future rather than the past. They should not forget that, they are the forefathers of this new oin jure, and that it falls to their lot to leavo a legacy rather than to receive one from other hands. It. is a mistake for the public to expect a few prominent citizens to preform all the labor and bear all the expense of such undertakings. Real estate is not the only interest benetitted when a town is mado famous, populous, and therefore prosperous. Everybody, down to the man who soils peanuts on the corner, feels the puiso beat of this new develop ment.. Everybody can therefore afford to do his share to bring it about. Nor are the benefits to bo measured entirely by the amount of money obtained by live methods in making a town known to the world. There is no wife like our wife. There are no children like our children. There should be no town like our town—the town where we live, the town whose streets our baby’s footsteps tread, the town whore we shall somo day sleep. If such a town is worth anything it is worth all we can do for it. It is worth the full measure of qur devotion, whether we re ceive an immediate dividend in dollarn and cents, or whether wo momly take our share of the common benefits accru ing ti tho community.
