Membera of Amityville Grange and the neighbors of Mr. Carson, met at his place Wednesday aud pro ceeded to harvest and deliver his beet crop. Mr. Carson has been down with typhoid fever for some time and this kindly act will remove quite a load of care from his mind and help on his recovery, which at this writing is progressing rapidly. • • • [From tho Granada Times.) The Santa Fe has had the waiting room and office of its depot here nicely papered and the wood work re painted. It is a great improve ment on the previous looks of the interior, but the outside should be given a coat of brick. ••• A number of relatives of L. D. Boggs arrived from Las Animas yesterday, called here by the death of Mrs. Boggs. Among them were his parents and W. 10. Culver, senior member of the firm of Culver & Boggs. Mrs. Boggs’ mother and brother arrived from Missouri, as did her brother aud his wife from Lamar. * * * [From tho Holljr Chieftain | Cora Strain of Lamar was attend ing to some business matters in Holly Saturday. * * * Aaron Hiatt, aged 88 years, died Monday night at the home of bis son, fifteen miles northwest of town. The body was shipped back to lowa for interment at bis old home. • • . Both the republicans and demo crats of this precinct held conven tions on Wednesday and nominated candidates for constable. A. L. Job son was chosen by the republicans and the democrats nominated A. J. Witt. The Bonds The official proceedings of the late meetings of the commissioners are published on another page of this is sue and those interested can see that the money to be raised from the bonds, if they carry, has been appro priated for certain purposes in cer tain amounts. An attempt is being made to convince voters that the money is to be used for other pur poses, but even the parties making tue charge know that it is false, as the officials making such misuppro pnation of funds would be responsi ble for the amount so spent. Look over the list of appropriations and if you are at all conversant with Prowers county affairs you will find that the money must be raised. The question for the taxpayers is how they wish to pay it, in a lump by a direct tax, or vote bonds and pay in small installments. Association of Ministers Oq October 27 the ministers of the Arkansas valley from Manzanola to Holly, and of all denominations, meet for conference in Lamar. There will be a very interesting program both afternoon and evening, and the pub lic is invited to attend. The afternoon discussions are “Pastoral work in this field’’ and “The Pastor and the Children.” Several men will speak in each of these. The evening pro gram begins at 7:30 with the topic “The Preaching the time demands,” followed by a lecture by Rev. Kim ball of La Junta on “The Slaying of the Prophet,” a forgotten page in Ameiican history. Tne afternoon session is in the Presbyteriau church; the evening in the Baptist. This should be an unusual treat for La mar people. Colorado's Answer The answer of the state of Colora do to the amended bill of the state of Kansas in the snit of the latter state to enjoin the former from the further appropriation of the waters of the Arkansas river for irrigation purposes was filed in the United States supreme court by Colorado’s attorney general, N. C. Miller, who is to be assisted in the case by a formidable array of counsel, includ ing former United States Senator Wolcott and former Chief Justice Hayt.

It is also denied that the Arkansas is a navig able stream or that the use of the water for irrigation in Colorado has the effect of diminishing the volume of the stream in Kansas. The use of the water for irrigation is defended ns in accord with the custom prevail ing in the arid region of the country, and the fact is set forth that many of the ditch corporations now operating in Colorado were incorporated by Kansas when that state comprised the territory now embraced in Colo rado.

Wall Street Aiding the Republicans Wall street is unintentionally, but very effectively, helping to roll up a big majority for Roosevelt and the Republican party in 1904. It is do ing this by laying the blame for the drop in stocks on the President. The whole thing began with the coal strike. When President Roosevelt intervened in the strike and con strained both sides to arrange a truce whereby peace was established he be gan the mischief, according to the way that Wall street talks. The miners gained a big victory; this gave them an incentive to make ex orbitant demands, and as a con sequence, there was a shrinkage in the building operations of the country, a decline in general busi ness, a break in Bteel stocks and a general collapse in the speculative markets, which begins to affect other activities This is the way that Wall street attacts Roosevelt and the Republican party. The attack is eminently cal culated to make votes for both. In the first place the President did not arbitrarily use any authority in get ting the miners and the mine oper ators to go together. He told each side that the sensible and patriotic thing to do in the exigency was to arrange some sort of a modus vivendi which would permit a reopening of the mines, and that he would see that a commission was appointed which would go over the whole affair carefully and impartially, and make a decision which would appeal to the country at large as just. His in fluence prevailed, the mines were re opened, the commission was selected and the investigation took place. The character of the commission at once gave the country confidence, and its intelligence and impartiality won the favor of both sides to the controversy. The settlement was acquiesced iu promptly by both par ties, and the work of coal production omcuLi* ©~ ccxrajmr LAMAR. PROWERS COJNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 21, 1903. has not beeu interrupted since. Without the President's interposition the strike would probably have last ed several months longer, and mil lions of dollars’ further damage would have been inflicted on the country. All this is something that the President’s and the Republican par tv’s enemies should take especial pains to conceal, instead of telling it to the country. The strikes which Wall street attributes to the Presi dent’s interference began before tho coal contest was settled. There were serious labor disturbances several months before the coal men went out. TheD, too, the advance in tho price of materials has had something to do with the shrinkage in the building industry. But the strike which the President is accused of arbitrarily stopping inflicted im measurably more injury on the country than the stock market’s de cline has caused. Only a compara tively few have been hit by the fall in steel and the other stocks, and most of these are men who can stand the loss without serious harm to them. The present Wall street flurry has beeu styled by Gates, who is something of an authority on this subject, a “rich man’s panic.” On the other hand, the coal strike hit S. M.
