THE LAM a REGISTER.
found it the PostoAco »t Umar, Colorado. ma Sooood-cla— Moil Mottor. Lamar needs more brick or stone business buildings bat the pressing demand is for a commodious and well built hotel. The state senate has persistently refused to transact any business — even to the passing of a bill for the salaries of the members. A resolu tion is before the house to adjourn to-day, which it is to be hoped can be carried. It is doubtful if any town in the state has been so devastated by tire as has Lamar. Although less than eight years old, it has passed through tive destructive conflagra tions and several minor ones. It is not to be wondered then that large and mighty scars have been left. During the boom times buildings wore run up in a day, and those wooden structures, dried until they were like tinder, have been a stand ing menace. While the repeated losses are discouraging, and for the time of great inconvenience to busi ness interests, it will be only tempo rary. There is not now enough bus iness buildings in the town to accom modate the legitimate and necessary demand This want will be supplied by substantial stores of brick and stone. This is even new being done despite the extraordinaiy hardness of the times. When the tide turns and the business revival comes, the burned and unsightly places will be hid by handsome and enduring buildings. COUNTY CORRESPONDENCE.
