A movement was started at a recent meeting at the commercial club room to organize for the purpose of try ing to have the Lamar land district included in the proviaiona of the law passed at the last session of Con gress making the homestead acreage in the at id belt 640 acres instead of ICO. A number of onr citizens went to Denver to interview Secretary of Agriculture Wilson and Commission er Kichards on the subject; and there will probably be a number of other districts similarly situated that will join in the movement. The bill will have the endorsement of practically all onr people and should also have their efforts in the line of letters to congressmen of their acquaintance showing that it is the sentiment of The Lamar Register the people here. There is no qnes , tion but that the bill can be passed if only the eastern congressmen can be made to understand the situation , here and the fact of the small value of the land in its present condition. That the measure will be a great i help to onr country the following » letter written to D. B. Nowles, chair man of the local committe, by M. P. • Kincaid, congressman from Nebras ka, who secured the passage of the , original bill, will show: O’Neill, Neb. Aco, 9, 1904. D. B. Nowels, Esq , [ Lamak, Colo.

PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 17. 1904. section homestead Act, passed at the I last, session of Congress and made applicable to public lauds in Western Nebraska. lam pleased to say the i entries made under this Act have been unexpectedly large and have been made ho rapidly that more than ; one half of the whole land, 8,500, 000 acres, has already been taken. The prospects are that abont all of the land will be taken at the end of i six months. The settlers are of a very good claes. The results so far . have proven to be very satisfactory and with good prospects that the measure will grow in popularity. I deem it uot unlikely that the Con gressional delegations from other states will introduce bills for the ! same purpose at the next session of i Congress, because representatives from two different states have told I i me that they were contemplating in- < troduciug similar bills.

In a blistering editorial , , it says: “The 6,000,000 democrats who voted for Bryau will uot follow him ■ into tbo bastard republican organize i *tion known as the gold standard de ' mocracy. If democrats are forced j \ to vote for republican principles aud the choice is resolved into a choice of men, all intelligent patriots will prefer Roosevelt to Parker, for, with all his erraticism, be is a safer man for the republic than Parker, for he is more democratic. Parker, back ed as he is by the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Belmonts and the money power, is the ultra embodi ment of imperialism ....
