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
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.—

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
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.
