It Has Been the Year of the Createst Ditch Building and Improving in the History of the County. When the history of the develop ment of Prowers county is written 181)7 will bo given place as tho red letter year in many respects. In the development of the canal systems, those great arteries of life which en able the farmer to make hie land productive, and on which the pros perity of all in the community de pends, it has never been equalled. On the first of Jaunary last year the farmers under tho old Henry canal were just beginning to sign the contracts for the enlargement and improvement of the canal by the Storage company, bnt the company in charge of the canal at the time re fused to allow the work to he done. A hard legal battle followed which at last left the farmers in actual pos session of the canal they had bought and paid for. Tho many and costly improvements, which were proposed on this property, were pushed as soon as the farmers got jiossession, and are now nearing completion. When it is remembered that half tho farm ing of the county is done under this ditch, and it has long been in an un satisfactory condition, this improve ment alone is enough to make the year a notable one. The greatest work of the year has boon that of the Great Plains Storage Company in developing their great reservoir system, which will include the big King luke as one of the small resor%'oin>. This system is estimated to cost a half million dollars, and will bring 100,000 acres of new lands in Prowers county under irrigation be sides furnishing to holders of water rights under the Amity canal the most reliable water supply in the country. This great work under the management cf Engineer E. C. Haw kins is being poshed very rapidly, and the present year will see it com pleted to the point where water can be applied to the new lands. This company have demonstrated that they have money and mean business, an agreeable contrast to many of the enterprises started here in the past. The Lamar canal, the largest one on the south side of tho river, has also at last got into the hands of men who mean business, as the $30,00U spent on improvements, now almost com pleted, will show. This will give a new impetus to farming on this side of tho river, and make a marked im provement in the appearance of the county from the railroad, where most strangers got their view of it. Tho Amity company has continued its work of development and improve ment, which is rapidly placing it in lead as the greatest irrigation system in the United States. The rapid increase in tho .popula tion of the connty has been one of marked features of the year. This increase amounts to 20 per cent of NUMBER 31. the population, and is made up prin cipally of farmers who have purchased lauds, built homes and moved their families here. They are for the most part men of substantial means and a desirable addition to the population of our county. The farmers this year have nearly all been blessed with bountiful crops of most every kind, and the unusually high prices which have prevailed on much of the farm produce and stock has caused it to be a remarkably good year for the farmers. One evidence of the general prosperity can be found in the bank statements. The one published the first of last year showed $75,000 on deposit, while the one published last week showed de posits of over SIOO,OOO, the largest in the history of the county. This is a gain of 'lo per cent for the year, and this big total is rapidly' increas ing we are informed. In the town of Lamar the improve ments and progress have been no less marked than in the county. The building boom still continues to grow larger and larger, and although many new dwelling houses nave been added to the town, there ure not near enough to supply the demand. A number of fine business houses have been built during the year, and add much to the appearance of the busi ness part of town. The population of Lamar has increased even more rapidly than the county, as shown by the crowded condition of the public schools, although two new rooms were added during the fall. The rapid influx of settlers under the Amity canal has caused a revival of interest in the east end, which has been sleeping since the boom. The newcomers nre men of means and have in one year’s time built up a fine farming section composed of cul tivated farms and comfoi table homes. This settlement has caused the new town of Holly to spring up in one year from away station to a thriving and enterprising villiage. Granada has also felt the effects of the new settlement, and the spirit of progress is at work there also. The year 1898 opens with bright prospects for Prowers county, and we hope that on the first of next year we can record even greater progress than we have for the past year. SANTA FE ROUTE. New and Improved Train Service. Denver to California in two duys. Two fast trains daily to Kansas City and Chicago. Seven hours quicker time to New Mexico, El Paso and Mexico. These nre some of the improvements offered to Colorado travelers oy the San ta Pe railroad. The through sleeping and chair car service has also been extended. Fred Harvey’s dining cars and houses are too well known and liked to need mention. Going east, west or south from Colora do the best route is the Santa Fe. Excellent local service between Den ver, Colorado Springs, Munitou and Pueblo. For information nnd reservations call on any agent, or address, J. P.
