THE LAMAR RESISTER.
Katered at tUe Poetoffiee at Lamar. Colwratio. aa S«coad-ola*a Mai) Matter. Have They Any Connection. One of the stock arguments of the free silverites is that the price of farm products is controlled by the price of silver. We ask oar readers to study this table of grain and sil ver prices fo* 1890 and 1897, taken from the St Louis market reports, and see if they can figure out any connection between them: August 13 1807 1896 Silver, per ounce 55t,c 65> 4 c Wheat, per bushel.... 89H° 57S<s Corn, per bushel 281*0 21 rhe Denver Republican is becom ing a first-class prosperity howler these days. Senator Stewart, of Nevada, who has for five rears been a populist pes simist, turned over to republican optimism this week. Klondyke promises to produce a bigger supply of gold than California did in the ’sos. Wonder if it will keep op the record in grass widows also? The silver republican and national silver branches of the republican party at Pueblo have given op their organizations and joined in with the regular party. Even the chronic calamity howlers are now forced to admit the rapid improvement tn all lines of business, and their attempts to explain the fact are amusing indeed. Premier Canovas. of the Spanish cabinet, was assassinated this week by an dago anarchist. His death is expected to help the cause of the Caban insurgents. Both the republican and demo cratic state central committees have called their state conventions for September Oth to nominate a candi date for judge of supreme court. The “Klondyke or bust” crowd is still increasing, and the snow covered mountain ranges to cross do not cool off the enthusiasm of the gold seek ers or check the exnt>eraace of the liars. The democratic party has nothing to do with hard times—it just hap pens when they are in power. The republican party has nothing to do with good times—it’s just forced on us while the party ruus the country. Bryan has announced that he is going to make a trip to Mexico and come hack and tell our people how much more prosperous the greasers are. He is not as smart as Stewart, who has crawled into the prosperity hand wagon. That man Hanna must be the big gest champ that ever acquired the habit of “getting to the front.” The democrats accuse him of buying up the Ohio populist - convention. The vote was 535 to 170 against fusion with the democrats. Just think what a chump he was to waste money buy ing 180 more votes than be needed. The bondholder caunot buy near bo much wheat or flour or meat with his interest this year as he did last, but he has to take his medicine just the same, and wre don’t hear any cal amityite howling about the injustice of thiß treatment either. General Harrison's Book. The Indianapolis Journal prints this interesting story oouceming ex- President Harrison’s forthcoming book: General Harrißon has just completed the revision of articles which have apj*eared in the Ladies' Home Journal, making extended notes and additions to them. There is a little story in connection with both articles and publication. When the arrangement for the articles was made with Gener*d Harrison by Ed ward W. Bok, editor of the Ladies’ Home Journal, the General was paid for them, with the understanding that when they were pot into book form the magazine was to share the royalties accruing therefrom. Mr. Bok, however, of his own accord, generously released General Harrison from paying him any royalty, for the reason, as be states, that by the pub lication of the articles by General general Harrish the subscription list of his magazine was enlarged many thousands. The profits to the Ladies* Home Journal were more than the publishers anticipated, and in view of this Mr Bok asks nothing further General Harrison placed the disposi lion of his book in Mr. Bek’s hand*. The beet offer came to the editor from the Scriboem, and to them Mr Bok gave the book for his distin guished contributor. General Ham son’s revision of the book has just been completed, and the volumn will appear in the autumn. ‘Sand Possums' Have Advanced in Price bat Shoes and Furnishing Goods Have Dropped.
