Subscription Hates: Joe Year— SI 50 Six Mouths 75 Three Mont he 50 Lamah, Colorado, December 0, 1908 The Governor's Proclamation. The effect, ho far, of the Gover nor’s proclamation declaring Teller county to be in a state of rebellion appears to have been the suspension of the habeas corpus act, without suspending the civil conns. The object of the proclamation seems to have been to enable the militia to arrest and detain danger ous characters, —men who are known to be criminals or counseling vio lence and resistance to lawful uuthor ity. That there are a number of desperate characters in Teller conn ty is well known, and in fact, has been well known for months, and while direct evidence connecting them with recent crimes may be lacking, their records, their attitude toward the lawful authorities and their public conduct generally is such that the military authorities believe the pub lie safety demands their arrest and detention until it is deene 1 safe to again turn them loose upon the com munity. While this action may seem arbi tary and unnecessary to the friends of the men so detained, the great majority of law abiding citizens will approve of any legal method of briuging the intolerable condition of terrorism that has prevailed in Tel ler county to a speedy end. That such differences of opinion as to the necessity for the Governor’s action will exist goes without saying, but there can be no doubt that he acted within his cousitutional right in issuing the proclamation, nor can there be any doubt that in doing so he was prompted solely by a desire to restore peace and good order in the disturbed district. The time it will tuko to restore normal conditions depends entirely upon the citizens of Teller couuty, and the assistance given the military authorities by the local otticials.— Colorado Springs Telegraph. How Rumors Crow. Groundless rumors have recently teen circulated to the effect that the Amer ican Beet Sugar company hail neglected to place orders in a sufficient quantity i with several of the beet growers in order to (-liable them to get all their crop m before the factory closed this fall. In order to get at the bottom of this report a representative of ti e company recently interviewed all of the growers who have any beets on hand: being nine in numlter. Those nine growers hnd on hand 173 tons of beets, and they hnd previously received orders from the fac tory for the shipment of 623 tons, and hml delivered on these orders a totnl of 311) tons. Now it is a matter of fact, the American Beet Sugar company notified all of the growers to deliver all the re maiiuler of their crop as quickly as pos sible after November 21st, and after the last date of delivery these few remain mg growers who had usmnl ton age of beets left were given four days addition al in which to deliver the entire remain der of their beets. The company went to the expense of having four empty beet cars hauled from La Junta to La mar to accomodate those growers, with the result, that about J.j of one car was loaded during the last four days of de livery. Further more these growers stated to the representative of the com pany in a personal interview that tlmy had no complaint to make against the American Beet Sugar company but were perfectly satistied. The circulation of such rumors as the the above should be discouraged by all citizens who have the interest of the community and valley at heart, as they enu only serve the purpose of discourag ing farmers at this time, when they are feeling the effects of the first failure of the beet crop. The beet crop is un questionably one of the best and most profitable for our farmers us well as the greatest maker of land values and all our people should pull together to en courage its production.
