Katared at the PoatofHce at Lamar, Colorado at Second-clast Mail Matter. PUBLISHED KVKKY WEDNESDAY BT OHIO. B. Editor and Proprietor. Hubboription Hath : Ona Year II 50 Six Mouths 15 Thrae Months 50 Lamar, Colorado, February 4, 1008 According to Home of the papers Senator Teller has been the guest of honor at a banquet every night since his election. The democrats must be determined to kill tne old man ofT as they failed to bent him. Indian Bill is now working the Denver dailes for numerous inter views. Bill has succeeded in work ing up such a reputation through the newspapers that ho may yet qualify for the lecture platform. Two La Junta farmers fought over a road this week* and one was killed. The road question is still unsettled, the only result being four children left fatherless. A re sult to force never settles any kiud of a dispute. The legislature has been quite peaceable this week. Evidently they realize the war is over and have set tled down to draw their “$7.00 per” as easily as possible. It is the last opportunity for many of them. The war cloud which some of our daily newspapers are trying to scare up refuses to look black, and all in dications are that the little affair with Venzuela will be settled peace ably as was the one a few years ago. The Denver News continues to till columns with what it don’t know about the intentions of leading, re publican workers. It is after any thing that will detract attention from its back-down in face of the challenge from the Denver Post to prove circulation statements The democratic papers are kick ing about the thugs that were placed in the lower house of the assembly to guard it during the recent contest. They fail to add that it was demo cratic votes that put the hirers of these thugs in power, and that the few republic.' us in the combine were promptly denounced by the republi can state committee, and their action repudiated. No democratic paper has yet denounced the members of their party who unanimously voted to put these hirelings in charge of the house. Land Laws Will Stand. It may be stated with certainty that the efforts which have been made in the present congress to re peal the various land acts of the country will come to naught. Bills for this purpose were intro duced in the senate and house and referred to the respective public lands committees. The house com mittee discussed the repeal measure at some length, and informally de cided not to make a report upon the repeal bill which had boon introdnc ed by Representative Powers of Mass achusetts. The senate public lands oommittee has not considered the repeal bill pending before it. which was introduced by Senator Quarries, and it is not likely to do so. The bill is not known to have a single friend in the committee Even Sen ator Quarries, who introduced it, says that he did so by request, and that he has no interest in the meas ure, In the meantime there has been considerable alarm on the part of Western citizens lest these repeal measures should be seriously consid ered by congress, and many letters and petitions have come from all. parts of the West protesting against the proposed changes in the land laws. On the other hand, a large nura ber of stereotyped resolutions and petitions have come to the senate and house from labor organizations in the extreme Eastern and Southern states asking that the laud laws be repealed and “the heritage of the people preserved.” The similarity of all of these petitions, and the fact that most of them are in printed cir cular form, indicates the workings pf an organized bureau or lobby which ha« for its purpose the repeal of the laws under which the West ia being nettled and developed. Chairman Lacey of the house pub lie lands committee attributes the nn wonted activity and desire on the part of Eastern organizations for the repeal of Western land laws to the agency of George H. Maxwell, who is the representative of the land de partments of several transcontinent al railways. These companies have large areas of land, acquired through grants of congress, and they find it difficult to sell these holdings while the government is a competitor and offering its land practically free of cost. If the remaining public land can be withdrawn from sale to the public, and can only be acquired through the homestead law, those who are seeking to obtain homes and lands in the West will be fore od to buy from the railway compan ies, and the corner thus established in Western iand will be greatly to the advantage of these companies. Much of the literature which now reaches the public, either through the columns of the Eastern press or of the several publications maintain ed by the railroad lobby, is paid for at much more than space rates by the railroad companies whose inter ests it seeks to advance. The gen eaal line of attack is to denounce the citizens of the West as land grab bers, or land pirates, and that the lands of the Wost are being stolen in wholesale quantities by land spec ulators. These articles lose their weight when it is known that their source of inspiration is the land de partment of a railroad company which wishes to sell its land and put all other owners having lands to sell out of the market. Spring’s coming is anticipated in The Designer for March, in which toilettes and millinery appropriate for this mosi beautiful season of the year are becomingly set fourth in dainty colors as well as in dlack and white.

Short artioles of merit are “Duties and Disillus ions,” by Stilletta Peyton Burke, “Profitable Pursuits for Women,” by Anhetta Halliday-Antona, “How I am Training My Boy,” by Edna Best Crawford, and “When A Woman Wills,” by A. S. Atkinson, M. Dr. Sarah A. French-Battey contributes three daintily ilustrated pages on “Dancing as an Exercise,” Landon Knight presouts “A Unique Cat Home” in a very attractive light, while Mary Kilsyth writes of “Win dows and Window Seats.” “What Women are Doing” gives many in teresting paragraphs in this issue, “Doilies in Filmy Lace” shows some beautiful pieces of fancy work, and many clever poems for old and young are given in “Selections for the Tecitationisfc.” “Floriculture” and “Book Notes,” also an illustrat ed article on “Lingerie,” are likewise to be found in this month’s Design er. Right Kind of Wives. This is the season of the y ear when the Indian chiefs come in from the reservation to see the Great Father. There are a score of them in the city now. A group of half a dozen stand ing on the curb watching an auto mobile recalled to some Texans who were passing the story Col. Bill Sterrett used to tell about the man who went into the Indian Territory to sell baby carriages. Everybody said he was crazy. It was admitted that there was a fine crop of babies in the territory, but uo one could see what the squaws, who were used to packing their off spring on their backs, could do with baby carriages. Still, orders began to come back, first for dozens and then for carloads and finally Sterrett went np to in vestigate. He weot into cue of the Indian villages. “And I’ll be dashed,” said Col. Bill, “If I didn’t see a dozen big fat Indians sitting in baby carriages, all scronged np, while the sqnaws w«*re pushing them around. The baby carriage man had made the Indiaus believe that baby carriages were the right kind of pleasure rigs for the noble red man.” —Ex. Watch St. Louis.
