NOWELS, Manager \ j; The Lamar Register. OrriCIAL XTE-STSPAFEB ©** Pr-C-VESI COViTTT • LAMAR, PROWERS COUNTY, COLORADO, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1901. Empire Valley. D. F. Stnkey has taken his teams to the reservoir to work. Geo. Cole has his grader outfit at work on some much needed work at the head of the valley. Elmer Wagner has bought a car load of lambs to feed from the Hoosier ranch proper. An interesting timo is promised those attending next Friday evening’s meeting of our literary society. A large headgate has been put in at the head of Wheat ridge lateral. There is a large body of water passes through this gate and it has been very difficult to control. The Sparks gives many reasons for the late landslide, but the prin cipal one and which it fails to men tion is that the Sparks has lost its influence with the republicans of Prowers county. It can no more cause dissatisfaction in republican ranka. Great loads of lumber, fencing wire, etc., purchased by Kiowa coun ty ranchmen from the enterprising business men of Lamar are seen north bound daily. In addition large bundles of dry goods and no tions are piled up secureiy on those passing wagons and where heretofore Kansas City has boen supplying most of the latter articles the prices sJb Lamar will draw an ovor increas ing line of business. Rio. The Beet Sugar Situation. It has been noticed that the sugar produced this season at Oxnard boa been allowed to accumulate at the American Beet Sugar Co’s warehouse That which has gone forward to dia tribnting points is nearly all stored there. In fact, very little of this years output has been soli—none in fact since the ‘‘Sogar Trust” declared war and cut prices. The heavy beet HUgar men of the coast, the American Beet Sugar Co. (the Oxnards) the Alamitos Co. (the Clarks) were not born yesterday. They recognize that that sugar is a staple necessity, of which the United State imports $100, 000,000 worth annually. When the “trust” made tho cut they saw no renson why they should give sugar away, so they simply withdrew their stock from the market and allowed the “trust” to fill all orders at a loss. The result is that the “trust” has lost the difference between the nor mal price and the cut price. Tho beet sugar men have their stock on hand ieady to sell at regular legitimite prices. It has been noted that they have not been greatly dis turbed, and so far all the “trust” has accomplished has been to spend a part of its* $15,000,000 increased capital and has warned the farmers of its purpose to crush one of their most important industries—if they can induce congress to admit raw sugar free. —Oxnard (Cal.) Courier. The same policy of storing has been practiced by the Rocky Ford factory. In “bucking against” tho beet sugar makers the sugar trust has met antagonists with both brains and money, which, coupled with the great extent of agricultural country identi fied with the growth of sugar beets, will make a sugar trust victory im possible.—Rocky Ford Enterprise. County Notes. I From tlio Holly <’lii«>ftnin. | Several families from Indepen* deuce, lowa came in yesterday and will nmky this their future home.
