Water Rights. In the Valley. Attorney General Post and Judge Platt Kogers, tbe attorneys for the Arkansas Valley Ditch association, have issued a timely letter in regard to the effect of the Kansas litigation against Colorado to restrain this state from diverting water for irriga tion in the Arkansas valley. It seems that some persons are fearful that because of this litiga tion they may in the future be pro bibited from using the water from the Arkansas in irrigation, and that in consequence their farms and ranches may become valueless. It was a natural conclusion, for the Kansas suit looked like au assault upon the irrigation interests of the whole valley. But the two distinguished lawyers named assure the public in any event water rights already acquired will not be injuriously affected by the result of he pending litigation. The suit is to restrain the state of Colorado from hereafter grauting the right to divert the water, which of course does not apply to grants of such rights already in existence It also asks that the state be eujoined from extending or renewing any li cense already issued. To the latter proposition the attorneys reply by saying that all water rights in Colo rado are granted in perpetuity, and that there is no period when they will expire, like the life of a corpora tion organized for banking, railroad ing or other such purposes. We hope they will be found cor rect in the position they occupy in this particular; for if they are, Kan sas will not be able to desttoy agri culture in the Arkansas valley al though they may prevent its exten sion. The Kansas suit is wrong in itself and the supreme court pugbt to deuy the injunction asked. The rights of Colorado are certianly aa good as those of Kansas, and it is defendant in the proceeding. Where rights are equal the position of the defendant is always the better, ac cording to an old maxim of the com mou law, and tne principle applies in a case of this kind as well as in an ordinary proceeding at law. The Arkansas is a Colorado river as far as the boundary of this state, and since it is not navigable and the diversion of water within the limits of Colorado does not interfere with the navigability of the stream fat ther down, it follows that the ua tional government has no jurisdic tion over it. —Denver Times. No Danger of Overproduction. According to Willett & Gray, of New York, the accepted authority of the United States upon all sugar statistics, the total amount of HUgar of all kinds consumed in the United States for the year 1900, was 2,219,847 tons, or an average of 05.2 pounds for each person. Ac cording to the same authority the total production of sugar withiu the United States for the same year was 202,180 tons. Of this amount only 82.980 tons were the product of heels. This indicates that 1,957,001 tons were grown in other countries, and paid a tariff upon being imported in to this country. A country that can consume its entire product of anything which it can grow or manufacture in unlimit ed quantities as cheaply as any other country, iB considered extreme ly fortunate, and those who are en gaged in that special industry have a natural advantage in cost of trails portation, to say nothing of what ever protective tariff may exist for the benefit of domestic producers. Here, then, we have a margin of nearly two million tons of sugar actually consumed by our own peo ple, as a home market, before we shall come into competition with other sugar growing countries. If. for the sake of admitting all that is liable to offset this, we mention that during 1900 there were imported from the Hawaiian Islands, Philip pine Islands and Porto Rico, 818,- 880 tons, and that it is probable that this government will be forced to ad mit, duty free, hereafter, the product of those islands, this will still leave a prospective deficit of 1,044,281 tons. Now if the beet sugar factories in the United States only produced 82, 780 tous of sugar in 1900, and they sbonld continne at the same rate bearafter, and other factories should be added, until the home- market alone was supplied, it would appear that about seven hundred additional factories would be required It will also prove true that the sugar output of tne new tropical col onies will somewhat increase in the near future, but this will be offset by MAXWELL’S P Z CLOTHING HOUSE $lO if you want |slo “IP A TEN DOLLAR SUIT tWe want to say to you that uncommon suits for $lO is our kind —-they are perfect fitting, t well tailored suits, suck that any man migkt wear with dignity suits that are satisfactory the very first time you them on to satisfy they are worn Perfect suits —that’s the kind.

MAXWELL [^j the increased consumption, per capi ta, and the additional consumption arising from the increase of popula tion. That tbia may not be underesti mated in the general conclusions, let it be remembered that in 1890 the total* sugar cousuinptiou of the United States was only 1,47(1,877 tons, while as stated above, iu this article, the consumption for 1900 had reached 2,319,847 tons, a growth in the home market demand of 743,- 470 tons, or more than twice the ag gregate output of Porto Rico, the Philippines and Hawaii, for the year 1000. So that these capitalists and beet growers who have noticed the receut developments in beet sugar circle§, may calm their fears and de vote themselves more profitably to the extension of the industry. When this country can produce somewhere near what it consumes, then it will be in ordei to proceed with more caution. In the meantime there should be hundreds of new factories planned and put into operation in Colorado and the adjoining territory. —Sugar Beets. The Hog Easy to Find. A number of democrats have inquired of the Sparks why it is that Sheriff Tate gave the sale notice of the Lamar Canal company property to a republican paper. The fact is that the sheriff hud nothing to do with the matter, and the Sparks is glad to set him right before his friends. The notice was originally issued some two years ago as a sheriff's sale, but some parties who believe in hogging the whole thing, knowing that the sheriff placed his own sale notices, had it changed to a commissioner’s sale in order to deprive this paper of the pub lication. These same people will bo around asking the Sparks for fovors again as they have done in the past, und they also join in denouncing the suggos tion that Commissioner Leslie ought to resign merely because he has forfeited the right to hold office, deploring such agitation as an attempt to interfere with their vested rights to patronage. Sparks. We do not believe that any paper in the county except the Sparks would knowingly publish such a gross falsehood as the above. The editor of that sheet, as is well known, has been for several years throwing all kinds of base underhanded insin uations at certain men of Lamar, but has always lacked the courage to come out openly and name them. The large legal notice on the lust page of this paper, which seems to have troubled the editor’s “innards” and caused the above eruption, was contracted for by the proprietor of The Register with one of the attor neys, one not interested in Prowers county or its politics, almost a year before Mr. Tate was elected sheriff, and jts publication was never at any time within the control of the sher iff’s office or any citizens of this county. That portion of the Sparks article about “hogging” and “vented rights to patrouage” will excite no other feeling but derision from one acquainted with the facts. For years he held a “rested right” to public printing and the mayor’s of fice without a kick from the opposi tion, but when called on to give them up for one year, he pours out his bile on all who opposed him, and joins with another patriot, pulled away from a teat, in a scheme to oust a republican commissioner and obtain by underhaud methods a por tion of what he fairly lost.
