Loyud says that the Kansas sugar beet raisers are very enthusi nstic over the idea, and that while they raised only 400 acres this year, they are after contracts to raise 1, 000 acres next season. Kausas pays a bounty of SI.OO a ton on sugar beets, aud this is supposed to be the roason for the anxiety to increase the product. Col.

The bride, a charmiug brunette, looked lovely when, to the strains of Men delssohn’s wedding march, she ap proached the altar upon the arm of the groom. She carried a shower boquet of bride’s roses. An elegant repast was seryed in the dining room, which was decorated with pink nnd white chrysauthemnms.

The Democrats and Panama Apparently the democrats, ever in search of issue, are going to repeat their old bluuder of trying to block the foreign policy of the administra tion when it has the support of the American people as a body. The democrats think that political capi tal can be made out of the Panama situation, and they intend to attack the action of the President and Sec retary Hay at the extra session of Congress. The first step will be to call for the papers iu the case, which may or may not he furnished. Ex pediency may require that for the present they be withheld. Both Mr. Cleveland and Mr. McKinley found it for the interests of the country not to take Congress into their conti deuce when matters in Cuba were critical. When the democrats ask for the state department documents boaring upon the Panama crisis, it will not be in good faith, but to ob tain, if possible, a party advantage —not to hold up the hands of the ad ministration, but to hold them. No other part of the country is so much interested in the construction of a chuhl across the isthmus as the polid South, and the democrat party and the solid South are very much the same thing. Public senti ment in the South undoubtedly ap proves of what has taken place in Panama; the triumph of the revolu tionists is hailed with elation, and any further bargain with Colombia would be condemned among the peo pie of the South at large. If they are properly represented in Congress there should be no disposition to em barrass the administration. Prob ably there is no democratic repre sontative more in sympathy with the overturn in Panama and the results that must flow from it than John Sharp Williams of Mississippi, the new leader of the minority. If Mr. Williams cares about hi* reputation he will prevent his party from p**r petrating the blunder of raising the shout of “imperialism” when the Panama question comes up for coi - siderition. —New York Evening Sun Mr. Roosevelt as Candidate. There are not wanting indications that the republican policy in the next orncutL --TETxrsr'-n.rE'nsxs cr cc LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO. WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 25, 1903. presidential campaign will be much more conservative than might be ex pected. The •purp oßo will he to sur prise some of the Piosident’s critics by the temperate character of the campaign and the business quality of the issues presented. Those most interested cannot foresee at this time to what extent or in what manner the tariff and the financial questions may enter into the campaigu. An effort will be made to have the test come in dealing with questions arising between capital «nd labor, with consideration for the geueral public welfare and the development and progress of the country. Other things to which prominence is to be given is the claim of free dom from corporation influence and vigor in the enforcement of honesty and punishment of dishonesty in the public service. The claim or free dom from corporation influence will be based upon the so called anti trust legislation speured by the President aud the general plau of operation adopted for the depart ment of commerce and labor and the prosecution of the Northern Securi ties cases. In answer to the sugges tion that the anti trust legislation by the last Congress was very limited and insufficient, aud that the depart ment of commerce and labor has not yet done auy thing to demonstrate its usefulness in dealing with corpora tions, it will be contended that the very caution and moderation with which the matter is being considered at the outset is a guarantee of earn ostness of purpose; thut the subject is too great to be dealt with at one sweep, aud that if the work is to be undertaken in earnest the foundation for action must be carefully laid and a system of healthy regulation and control of corporations bo coustru t ed deliberately along broad lines. It is auticiptaed by Mr. Roose velt’s friends that he will have to en counter opposition, perhaps of a se cret sort, from great corporations, while being criticised by impatient anti trust people for not moving faster, and that he may have to withstand an attempt to make the administration shoulder the respon sibility for the reactiou in great financial and business undertakings This, they declare, they will bo pre pared to meet.—State Journal. Is Socialism Declining? Massachusetts is the homo of American Socialism. To that state the socialists of the United States looked for inspiration in 1903. But they did not get it. Iu the eleetton of 1902 Chase, the socialist candi date for governor in Massachusetts, polled 33,029 votes. This year ac cordir g to the predictions made by his supporters just before the elec tion, the same uihu being the candi date, he wits to get at least 4(1,000 votes, and probably 5O,(H)0. But he fell far sh ort of the smallest of those | | figures, his poll being 25,222, or 8. 407 less than a y« ar ago Iu 1900 Debs, the candidate of the social democrats for presi lent, received 88,000 vote- Malloney, the social labor nominee, polled 40,000. The smaller organizations of so cialists also rolled up some votes. In some of the state elections since 1900, notably iu Massachusetts in 1902, the sosialists made a strong showing. In 1903, however, it fell back. Tom Johnsou’s programme has a good deni of socialism in it, and it got some hard knocks from the people of Ohio this year. Whether Tom , will be extant next year or not is uncertain, but it would seem that Ohio has uo favors fur him. Even socialism w enemies hnve 1 been predicting u big display for i( in the cauvass of 1901. Many re j publicans have been assuming that if Debs or some other personally popular man with some talent for oratory should be nominated by the socialists in 1901 he would receive 300,000 or 400,000 votes. In the state elections of 1902 the aggregate socialist was over 400,000. That big poll aroused the hopes of the so cialists and the fears of their enemies all over the couutry. But things have turned out different from wh it both sides expected. Of course it would be rash to predict that the ' socialist poll in 1904 will be smaller than it was in 1900. Much will de pend on the condition of business at that time. If there should be iu dustrial stagnation the socialist vote would be likely to expand. In any case there is enough floating radical ism of one sort aud another in Amer can politics to render it probable that the socialist candidate of 1904 will make a showing that will attract some attention, through the propor tions of his vote are not likely to be quite so majestic as was assumed a year ago to be inevitable. —Globe Democrat.
