Joel Knowlen Nominated for County Commissioner. There has never been a gathering in Prowers county on an off year politically that equalod the republi can county convention last Monday, either in point of numbers or the general appearance of the members. The 80 members of the convention all bore a general air of prosperity and substantial standing in their re spective communities. Considering the little amount of business to be transacted it was remarkable that such a large attendance could be ob tained from all parts of the county. There were many new faces in the body, showing that the new settlers of the county are taking an intorost in the county affairs, and their con stantlv increasing numbers will in a few more years place them in the majority. The interest and enthusi asm shown in this convention is evi dence that the republican majority in Prowers county is alive to the neces sity of redeeming Colorado this year from the misrule and corruption, which has marked the fusion admin istration of state affairs, and placing the state once more in the republi £ can column where it has always be longed, and thus regaining the con fidence and respeet of the financial and commercial section of the coun try. The convention was called to order at 2:30 in the afternoon by A. E. Bent, chairman of the county central committee. On motion A. E. Bent was made temporary chairman, and C. L. McPherson, of Holly, tempor ary secretary There being no contests the tem porary roll call of the convention was adopted as tho official roll of members, and was as follows: Lama it No. 1.

Wing, C. L. McPherson and Frank S. Batcher reported the following resolutions which were adopted: “We Republicans of Prowers county in convention assembled, call the atten tion of the voters of the county to exist ing conditions in the nation. We con gratulate the nation upon the success of the Republican standard bearer and typical American, Theodore Roosevelt. His administration hns been the most successful in the history of the world and the work begun by his lamented predecessor is being carried out loyally and faithfully. Attention is called to the condition of every class: the toiler, the business man and every one is benefitted by these en larged channels of success under Repub lican administration. Under the policy followed by the democratic party these channels were stagnant, congested and narrow. We condemn the course of fusion nnd Democaacy in the state. The leaders of the party have become so unstable, cor rupt and dangerous to good government that scandals in departments of state are as numerous as the leeches who in ] feat the 'parties. Public money is will* orncrgJi srETxres’ju’Esi ©s' s»:Rc-.irx:sis covittt LAMAR, PROWERS COUNTY, COLORADO, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1902. fully and shamefully squandered with out regard to the needs of the people. The state land is absorbed and made a matter of barter and sale by those who are supposed to protect and save it to the interests of the school children of Colorado. We condemn the duplicity of Senator Teller, who, in a recent speech in his own city, stated that ho had always been a Democrat, meaning in substance, that he hud held office by the grace of the Republican party for thirty-one years under false pretences. His unfairness is so manifest that the people of the state will repudiate him for unstable conduct and place him with those who have proven themselves more eager for pelf und power than for the furtherance of honest political and personal convic tion.” The order of business was on motion made the same as in the call for the convention. Nominations for county com missioner for the 2nd district being in order, Frank S. Butcher named JoelKnowlen of Granada, and Capt. Wing seconded the nomina tion on behalf of Carlton. Mi.
