VOLUME XIX. ALWAYS REMEMBER!!! That there is at least one business in Lamar where the quality of goods sold is the governing principle upon which every effort is based. We leave no stone unturned to supply you with the very highest grade of everything we handle, not one single department excepted. You have noticed how this institution has grown in the last two years and we positively believe our success is due to our unceasing efforts to give the highest quality it is possible to get. “QUALITY IS REMEMBERED LONG AFTER PRICE IS FORGOTTEN” DON’T FORGET —We offer $5 in prizes for the best bunch of Sweet Pea Blossoms next Saturday, July 2nd.— SWEET PEA DAY. THE UP-TO-DATE DRUG COMPANY The largest institution of its kind in the Arkansas valley. Postoffice Building, Lamar, Colo. THE 4TH Everybody is invited to come to Lamar on the Fourth and enjoy the biggest and best celebration of the day ever held in the valley. The committee on arrangements has all the work well in hand now and there is no question but what the event will be a success. The progiam as announced is so varied that every one can find something to suit his taste, and every one who wishes can take part. If you do not do anything else the big basket picnic and out ing at the fair grounds will be a va cation well worth the trouble, lie member no admission charged any place. Everything is free. Don’t miss the biggest time of the year. Empire Valley. All vegetation is making a rapid growth. The rains have put the range in excellent shape, and as it is not overcrowded, cattle will fatten. Most of the beets have been thin ned and in the pink of condition. The Mexicans brought in certainly have no cause to complain, none that work make les-i than $1.50 per day and members of some of the field crews have made from $2 to $8 50 each. The weather and condition of the land have been favorable. There is some thing doing all the time on every farm in the valley just now and to talk of the big tasks performed daily would be almost incredible to one not acquainted with farm life. Wm. Rose has leased his alfalfa and tillable land to bis sons Jesse and Harry, for this and next year, and his time will be mostly taken up in the care of his large orchard of cherry, plum and apple, etc. As many of the varieties are being mar keted he has to ‘‘keep things mov ing.” Harry and Herbert Heath traded their big black matched team for a lot of young mares and colts, the number makes corral room at a premium. slr. George Bishop, after being confined to the bouse for several weeks, is again able to be about piloting the farm work. Hetb Fry is the leading gardener of tbe north side. He has set out thousands of cabbage, tomato and sweet potato plants at this date aud not yet done planting. Our water consumers have had the priviledge of helping themselves to all tbe water they could baodle and it is a new iuuocatiou to be able to use water at times and iu quantity desired. ’Rah for for the Fort Lyon canal managemeut. Surpress the Spirit of Anarchy. Industrial activity is tbe corner stone of business success, but it is impossible where tbe laws are not enforced, where a spirit of anarchy driyes away capital aud intimidates labor. Let an organization that em ploys murder and assassination to coerce papital and frighten away in dependent labor control the mining industry in Colorado and it will in directly control all other labor or ganizations. It will dominate all in dustries, reduce business men of every kind to a state of slavery and cause capitalists to withhold their investments from the community in which it bears rule. An organization of that kind is in direct conflict with not alone the in stitutions of this country, bat with tbe very genius of our civilization itself. It violates fundamental prin ciples of American liberty and sets up its will as tbe supreme law in place of the constitution and tbe laws of both state and nation. An organization like the Mafia so ciety, which committed so many out rages that it caused the leading men of New Orleans to adopt extreme measures for its overthrow, is abhor rent to every intelligent and patri otic American citizen. It is recog nized as alien to onr institutions and our civilization But what is true in this respect of the Mafia society is no less trne of any other organi zation which employs like measures for the accomplishment of its pur poses. That such an organization may exist without numbering among its members a single immigrant from Southern Europe was shown in the case of the Mollie Maguires orrxcxjLi. wmrspjirx* or frotsterb ccvittt LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. JUNE 29, 1904. of Pennsylvania, and is now shown by tbe acts of tbe inner circle of the Western Federation of Miners. There can be no peace in Colora do, no industrial or commercial pros perity, so long as such an organiza tion is permitted to hold sway, or so long as it can appeal with success to public sympathy. It is, therefore, for this as well as for other reasons, the duty of eveiy law-abiding man to take a firm stand against tbe spirit of anarchy and intimidation which animates the inner circle of the Western Federation. It is the duty of every such citizen to uphold Gov. Peabody and other officials in their enforcement of law and the preser vation of order, for if onr people re pudiate tbe officials who have enforc ed the law they will thereby give a license to anarchists and criminals of all other kinds to ran riot —Denver Republican. Just Heap Big Talk. Tbe American Free Trade League held its annual banquet in Boston the other night. It was tbe twenti eth anniversay of the formation of tbe league, and the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Richard Cobden, tbe father of tbe free-trade movement, hence the banqueters sought to make a great night of it. Tbe principal gnests of honor and the chief speakers were Charles Francis Adams, Edward Atkinson, L. R. Ehrich and H. M. Shepard. All of these men talked more or less violently. Shepard declared that the United States eventually would hays free trade, that a pro tective tariff was as much oat of plaoe in a republic as an established chnrch. Charles F. Adams told in a lengthy speech how protection op pressed the common people. Ed ward Atkinson denied what most free-traders have hitherto admitted, namely, that Great Britain was en abled to adopt free trade through having fully attained the purpose of protection, and he declared that this conntr) could never become a world power until it abolished the last vestige of a protective tariff. These eminent gentlemen are very much like the Hindoo philosophers, who assert that a man cannot stab bis toe against a stone or any other object, because there is no man eor any toe nor even a stone. If the history of American industry since this league was founded does not give the lie to all these free trade ( benqasters said, then they are not | to be convinced by either facts or I miracles.—Cedar liapids “Republi can.” The Right Kind of a Trouble Maker. The Galveston Daily News has the following to say concerning the candidacy of Mr. Roosevelt. “He is the very kind of man to keep the country in a continuous ntate of uncertainty and turmoil and to make serious trouble even in time of peace.” To which the Burlington Republi can makes the following very effec tive reply which places the charge made by tbe News in tbe same cate gory with tbe boomerang: “He is and always has been a dangerona man. He was dangerous to the shirks, threves and big mitt men on the force when he was police commissioner of New York. He was dangerous to tbe enemies of the country when preparing for the Spanish war, and to tbe Spaniards at San Juan. He was dangerous to the dishonest officers of tbe array after the war. He was dangerous to the officers of tbe army who hadn’t sense enough to keep their mouths abut when in the service. He has been especially dangerous to the thieves and grafters in the postal and other departments of the gov ernment service. He is dangerous to the trusts and big corporations that are seeking any special privi leges from the government for the purpose of robbing tbe public. He is a dangerous man to lazy, incompe tent, dishonest and undisciplined public servants everywhere, aud of coarse be is a dangerous man to the democratic party. Yes, Roosevelt is very dangerous, and that is why the people are going to re elect him by an overwhelming majority. They like a man who is dangerous in cer tain ways.”—Pueblo Chieftain.
