He was so well pleased that he pur chased a tract therein. Mr. Pad dock owns a large area of land in Oklahoma, but he found the XY land so much superior that he started for that territory, Saturday, to dispose of this land in order to invest more heavily in the XY lands. Mr. Pad dock shows his wisdom by so doing Moving Pictures of Colorado Indus tries. The Arkansas valley will be well represented at the World’s Fair next year not only in froit, melons and farm products, but in a some what novel way. Motion pictures have been made, and these will be exhib ited at St. Louis either as a portion of the state exhibit or alone. H. H. Buckwalter, of Denver, has made several very interesting negatives that show up the resources of the valley in fine shape. One of these shows the gathering of the fourth crop of alfalfa on the XY ranch near Granada. Auother shows the gathering and shipment of sugar beets. At Rocky Ford long strips of film show the farmers com ing in with wagons laden with beets, the (weighing, delivering and hand ling at the factory and the farmers driving away with empty wagons but full purses. Another pictuae will show 5,000 head of sleek cattle being fed on the waste pulp at the beet factoiy and still another picture shows a very at tractive and interesting watermelon scene at Rocky Ford in which the melon gets a good advertisement and the spectatoi laughs at the mishaps of several pretty girls who try to carry away the monster products of the valley. Arrangements are being made with the Colorado Bureau of Infor mation to show these pictuies throughout the eastern farming com inanities this winter so as to lay a ground work for the advertising of the valley at St. Louis uext summer and then following up the work with h systematic effort to induce eastern farmers to visit the valley and see f«>r themselves the advantages over farming in the East. The Santa Fe road lias promised to establish a special Arkansas valley bureau of immigiation and do much toward tilling tip the district with desirable farmers and their families The American Beet Sugar Company has also promised to assist in this work, The Lamar Register We give you our word that We take great pleasure in the watches we are giving away giving out customers these £thfm:”mzrts: ■lh iiWirli- i Jewel Waltham, full nickel, and his our wa Y of showing you guaranteed.

The Military Mockery. The joyous little pannage of arms at the state capitol known as the court martial, is booming along mer rily as of yore, but there is a chance that it will bo completed. I rather anticipated matters last week iu ex pecting that, the proceedings would last but one week. Foolish thought! I should have known that the torture wan of such a delicious aod tantaliz ing kind that the valiant General Bell would protract it as long as pos sible at the expense of both General Chase and the state. Yet, there is a ray of light, hidden as yet, bat likely to burst forth at any moment- the governor, to wit; If the governor “bursts,” as I am calculating upon, General Bell will feel the force of the explosion. Here is a chance for a poetic dram atist, one who uses the proverbial license to the utmost and has an imagination that would cause the shade of Homer to writhe with envy. Take a tale of ancient Greece as the j model, say “How Tbesens Slew the Minotaur,” and then commence the bringing down of the golden days to sordid modern times. General Chase of course, should be cast for Thesus and General Bell the Minotaur By this simple allotment both can do considerable fighting and General Bell will expire in the last act, as he onght to, if not before. You cannot rush matters in a play, though, as much as you would sometimes like to. The coy and gentle Ariadne who shall play the pensive maiden who escaped with the victorious Theseus from the island of Crete? Why, there is but one person in our company who can do it, the gover nor, himself. The silken thread which led Theseus from the laby rinth after his successful combat shall be the honorable court martial. This is not inappropriate when yon ' consider the red tape they now rep reaeot. This shonld be recommend ed to Klaw & Erlaager. It surely could not be worse than some of their “unsurpassed attraction,” and possibly better. The daily press early in the week asserted with great positiveness that the complexion of the conrt martial is changing, and that where Bell held the preponderance of power a change has, appeared and Chase now has the sympathy of these rigid mil itary justices as well as of the pub lie. I have ray doubts. We of en lightened and purified Denver are tolerably familiar with the packing of juries, and surely such a process o uilil be applied to a court martial ns well. There is also the encouraging re port that the governor has tired of his adjutaut general’s malevolence and spleen and is going to forcibly eject that gentleman by either strate gy or force.

NOVEMBER 4, 1903. that case there will be a lively com bat for the vacant position That blushing bud of society, Maj. Zepb T. Hill, is beiug announced now as the most prominent of all the eligi bles, and Denver’s aristocratic circles are agog over the possible elevation of one of its members to some pub lie office where a display of brains is essential at times. It has been urged against the ma jor that at one time he ran a large and handsome meat shop in Denver, bat I can see no valid objection to this. Because a butcher in the every day walks of life, is that any reason , why ho shovld be so when in a uni form and at the head of role ntless legions? No, perish the thought and elevate the cleaver. Socially, this should not be urged against him either. -Surely we should not scorn a cotillion leader because he assists oar physical well being at reasonable recompense, when others furnish us with suspenders, hardware or coal. Let there be no discrimination on this account, Governor Peabody. Remember this is a democratic aris tocray, Colonel Watterson’s ideas not being considered. Col. A. W. Corlifs and several others wbo have seen actual service, have been mentioned in connection with this position, but they shonld not be given a moment’s thought. I agree with Mr. Dooley in this as in other matters.

Open Season the Whole Year. The following from the New York Times will give the South Car olina idea of the open season for killing editors, since the jury vindi cation of Tillman: Among the residents of South Carolinu who have been seriously | annoyed by the criticism which fol | lowed the Tillman verdict is one W. I. Risinger, who was a member of the jury that gave Tillman his “vin dication.” Not only is Mr. Rising er annoyed that fault should have been found with the action of him self and his companions in the jury box, but he has written a letter to the Spartanburg Journal, wherein, with rather more of courage than of discretion, ho reveals, as cleany as his somewhat imperfect commaud of English orthography and grammar would permit, that Tillman was ac quitted because the jurors consider ed the killing of an editor a j ermiss- j ible exercise of anybody’s right of ’ private judgment. “I refer you,’ | writ“i Mr. Risinger, “to the annals of h lory when you fail o ti d a single conviction of any man for for shooting an editor The state and cotm-el for same was satisfied with the Verdict, otherwise the state could have gone to the appeal courts; the Masses have accepted the ver diet as fair, but seemingly the preaa j wants more blood which can be found Iby walking in the foot prints of N. G. Gonzales. Mr. Gonzales was an able man, but unfoiLu.outely he made a great mistake by abusing the lib erty of his press, the courts have sustained the defendant by which all law abiding citizens should be satis tied,” So far, Mr. Rising r on the past. As for the future he is equally ex plicit. “If I was mi editor,” he says, “aud not satisli»d with the de ! fondant’s acquittal and had the grit ito follow rny pen, I would certainly | invite the defendant to entertain me beyond the Georg; lines, which would be more patriotic to my fellow man than to sit in my sanctum and abuse him with my peu. In extend ing this invitation mentioned above I would say to rny brothor editor: If I shonld prove the unfortunate one in the affair not to call it mur der, but suicide by the abuse of lib erty with the wrong man.” Judg ing from the comments of the South Carolina press upon this curious doc ument, Mr. Risinger expects to be busy for some time to come in mak ing excursions “beyond the Georgia lines.” For the South Carolina ed , itors seem to like neither Mr. Rising er nor his letter, aud they express their disapproval in terms that must bo extremely try ing to the patience of a gentleman with his views as to the limitations of journalistic free dom. They are, however, presum ably competent to deal with his theory that editors are “of wild ua ture” to be shot with impunity when ever inclination or convenience sug gents, and we will not ourselves venture to increase Mr. Risinger’s indignation.
