Reports from the mountains show that there has been a notable accutn ulation of snow in nearly all parts of tae state where the ranges reach a great elevation. This has changed the situation in comparison with what it was six weeks ago, when it looked as though there might be a scarcity of water for irrigation during the coming sum. mer. The accumulation seems to be great enough to make the snow fall about normal, and there are possi bilities for still more during this month and even during the early part of May. Some of the most se vere snow storms known in Denver have occurred in April. So much has the situation been improved that the farmers have rea son to look forward with confidence to a year of good irrigation and con sequently bountiful crops. When ever the streams run full of water ir rigation makes farming-in this state practically a certainty, so far as the yield is concerned. —Denver Repub iican. Duty of Republicans to Unite. Whatever differences may exist among the republicans of Colorado relative to a suitable candidate for the United States senate, such differ encea should be laid aside this year OX’FXCZA.L 2rSIZr3FA.FEXi OF FFOISrEFS CCTFXT’X'Sr LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. APRIL 20. 1904. aud the party all over the state should cordially and earnestly unite in selecting state and local tickets that will command the confidence and support of the people. The senatorial contest does not come up until 1900 and there is ample time to make that fight inside the party after the state is safely landed in the republican column this fall. The cause of good government and, to a large extent, the prosper ity of the state, are closely idontili ed with republican success this fall, aud no republican can affoid to jeop ardize that success by any feelings of personal hostility to individual mein bers of the party, and no republican should be permitted to wreck the party or to injure its prospects by an attempt to serve his selfish pur poses or ambitions. The party all over the state should close up its ranks, should relegate the agitators and disturbers to the rear, should use the utmost wisdom in the selection of candidates, and should adopt such progressive poli cies as the people of the state de maud. It is time for back-bitiug and bickering to cease and for all loyal lepublicans to get together. —Pueb lo Chieftain. From the above it looks as if even Ikey had decided to get into line. Alleged Horse Thief Taken to Lamar Undersheriff J. H Frisbie of of Prowers county was in Denver yesterday for the purpose of taking into custody Will Roll Painter, who is wanted at Lamar for stealing four horses and a mule. Painter is said to have stolen the animals and afterward disposed of them to a man named Howe in New Mexico. He disappeared ane Under sheriff Frisbie took up the scent. He struck the wrong trail in the be ginning, thinking Howe was the guilty man. Frisbie went to New Mexico and brought Howe up to Prowers county, where the fact that he was the wrong man was discover ed. Trace of Painter was found later, however, it being learned that he was in Kansas. From that state he returned to Colorado, locating in We'd county and afterward coming to Denver. Painter’s arrest in Denver was made in an unusual manner. While scurrying about this state aud Kan sas endeavoring to elude pursuit, he stopped at New Windsor, where he bought a money order for $9 and seut it to a man in Fort Collins. The money order was not called for and was returned to New Windsor. The postmaster at that point made efforts to locate Painter and discov ered that he was in Denver. The money order was forwarded to Col. Sullivan of the postoftice depart ment here. Monday when Painter called to receive a return of his money Col. Sullivan had a police mau stationed nearby, who promptly made the arrest. Undersheriff Frisbie aud his man left last night for Lamar. —Denver Republican. Value of Pumping. The importance of irrigating land by pumping water from the under flow is beginning to be recognized, and this feature of irrigatioq is •growing very rapidly. The national irrigatiou act has stimulated this work enormously and has already increased the demand for irrigated lands of the west. Fxperimeuta show that in many portions of the arid west well sunk from eighteen to fifty feet will supply large sections of land which can not be irrigated in auy other way, and in this man ner low or seepage laud can be made valuable by water being forced up on to the dry and unprolitable table* land. No storage reservoirs are nec essary and the expense of canals and irrigation ditches is thereby saved. Tests have recently been made at a distance of seventy-five to one hundred miles distant from the foothills, in which it' was found that water could be had in abund ance along draws and dry water ways at four to eight feet below the surface. It is believed that the un derground flow will constantly in crease and that this source of water will be unfailing.—lrrigation Age.
