Orders were issued to growers last week and the delivery of beets com menced on Tuesday. These first orders were giveu to those growers whose crops the field analyses prov ed to have reached such a stage of maturity as to possess the requisite sugar content. During the past few weeks the finishing touches have been put on the repairs and cleaning up the mass of machinery, and the vast plant iu all its departments is in readiness for what is expected to be the long est and most profitable campaign for both farmer aud factory. Now that the growers are to be paid a fiat rate of $5 per ton the work of the laboratory will be great ly reduced. Analysis of individuhl wagon loads will not be made as heretofore. However, analyses will be made with such frequency as to assure the company that they con tain such a per cent, of sugar con tent as to make their working pro fitable. During the past week the office force bus been largely increased aud now has the regular ermpaign ap pearauce. The four new upright tubulars boilers have been fully enclosed by a brick building and are ready for use as soon as the active operations of sugar manufacturing shall make a demand for the large additional steam power which they will furnish. A change in the matter of tare has been made this season. This un pleasant and oftimes vexatious part of the business is now being attend ed to at the shipping stations. The Russians seem to be more rapid and successful in agricultural than military operations. The first load of beets delivered at the factory this season was by Michael Nill, a Russian. —Rocky Ford Enterprise. What Others Think.

Miners will show conclusively that the present stata government in Colorado is not alone in its condem nation of them as trouble breeders: “With regard to these organiza tions, we think they ought to be specially declared illegal, as their leaders have shown that they care nothing about the obligations of contracts or about the interests of their employers against whom they are ever fomenting discontent; that they ignore the constitution and Stiles of their own organisations whenever it snits them to do so; that they at all times preach the doctrine of confiscation of property without compensation, and that so ciety is divided into two classes, the toilers and the spoilers; that they justify the use of the boycott and the sympathetic strike; that they do not disapprove of violence aud in timidation; that they are wholly in different to the loss and damage which they iufiot on the public, and that they recklessly allow suffering and privation to befall the families of those misguided followers with regard to whom they are constantly guilty of deception aud conceal meat.’’ Advertising a Big Show. The honorable methods adopted by the Sells & Downs show’s ad vance department in advertising that big circus institution is such a con trast to those of other shows that we cannot refrain from 'commending the Sells & Downs people. They seem auxious to be fair an(| reason able and deal honorably iu all iu stances. In regard to their press work, it is noticeable that the press agents are armed with ao immense scrap book filled with clippings about the Great Sells & Dowds Shows. Every arti cle, and some are quite lengthy, is complimenatry to the show. The most influential papers, the city and the country papers alike, seem to unite in one common song of praise for the real merits of the Great Sells <Sc Downs Shows.

On the Republican Record. “We base our appeal upon what we have done and are doing,” says the President for himself and his party. We rest our case upon prov ed governmental efficiency.” What results of republican govern ment during the last seveo years would the democracy annul if it had the power? Suppose the democra cy put in full control of the govern meut. What would it do?. Would it apologise for aveugiug OFFXCIJLL XTEUTSFAFSB OF CCOMTT LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 28, 1904. the Maine aud freeing Cuba, haul down our flag in Porto Rico, and cat Cuba adriit? Would it tear up the treaty with Panama, turn anarchy loose there, and indefinitely delay the building of isthmian canal? W’ould it stop rural postal delivery, abandon internal improvements, re peal the irrigation law, disband tbo array, aud stop building ships for the Davy ? Would it repeal the gold standard acts, and plunge the currency again into the confusion and finance into the uncertainty of 1003? Would it again revise the tariff as it did before, with such anxiety to prevent a few from getting too rich that it gladly took the chance of making everybody poor? Where is the democratic leader who dares even to whisper that his party would do any of these things? Would the democracy abandon the Philipines immediately, continue the repub.ican policy of fitting their people to become self-governing Americans, or promise them indo pendeuce at some future time? Within fifty days the democracy’s chosen leaders have declared for all three policies What would their party do? What could it do, with out betraying the republic and com initting an international crime, ex cept what the republican party has done and is doing? W’ould the democracy, while en forcing all laws against poor men, omit to enforce some laws against rich men associated in trusts? Some rich men are supporting Judge Parker because Theodore Roosevelt declined to respect per sons iu enforcing the law, but neith er they nor the democratic leaders dare tell the true motives of their action. The deeds that the democracy does not aud dares not pledge itself to undo are the deeds of the republi can party. They are its work in government. “So well has the work been done,” as the President says, “that our op ponents do not venture to recito the facts and then oppose them. They attack them ouly when they have first misrepresented them.” Against a party which does not and dares not pledge itself to undo republican deeds —against a party which does not aud dares not even criticise republican deeds without first distorting the facts as a basis for its argument—the republican party appeals with confidence on the facts—on the results of its work — to the sober judgmeut of the Ameri can people. —luter-Ucean. $20,000 just received for farm loans. No delays. L. Wirt Makkuam. REPUBLICANS MAKING SURPLUS Thomas and Orman Both Left State In Debt for Current Expenses. This is not the year when petty matters will be allowed to intervene in the political situation, the great issue of whether Colorado is going to be turned back to the professional agitators and dynamitarda oyer clouds all else. In the faultfinding resolutions adopted by the demo cratic state convention complaint is made of the alleged Extravagance of the present republican state admin istration. No specific charges are made. The platform throughout is one of glittering generalities. As a plain matter of truth, the present administration has been un usually economical. It has bad bus inessmen in charge. The board of audit has attended to its duties aud saved the state hundreds of thou sands of dollars. Secretary of State Cowie has given as much attention to the purchase of state supplies as though he were making purchases on his own account, and Auditor Holmberg aud Treasurer Newton have not let a dollar go through un less they knew where it was going. The people have a right to know., A big saving has been effected in expenses. Figures compiled from the books of the different offices at the state capitol show that a saving has been effected of SOOO,OOO in the 20 months of the administration of affairs. This has been brought about through better collections and greater care iu the expeudituies of public moneys. The decrease in the expenses is as follows: Printing dnpartmont S 90,000 Supplies iluimrtineot 20,1X10 Incidental expenses 30.000 Kxtrn session ex|*en«cs 30.000 Other extras &0.000 Total reduction $240,000 INCKKAfIKD BKVBNL'EH. Auditor and treasurer $170,000 Laud board receipts 17.V000 Insurance department I.'i.UOO Total RWO.OOO Grand total $900,000 Since the republican administra tion assumed office there has been no scandal in any department. The printing department has been con ducted as a business department, not as a graft. Iu striking contrast is the record of the previous democratic adminis trations. Although the legislatures, being of the same faith, gave them liberal appropriations, tha Thomas government and the Orman admin istration left the state heavily in debt. Gov. Thomas hadtoboriow $140,- 000 from the Denver Clearing Houses association, and the Ormau adminis tration was not ranch of an improve ment. Its record was such that the party was decisively defeated there on on an appeal to the people, al though the principal waa sacrificed to save the party name. The money appropriated to pay the Thomas excess warrantn whs squandered by the Orman adminis tration, and the best testimony to be had is the scathing dennneiation by Mr. Thomas himself on the “graft” of the Orman government aud the use of the money referred to iu the psyment of “cooked” printing bills. On its efficiency aud economical ad ministration of affairs the present state government should win. The democratic platform wail did refer to the misuse of the appropria tious made for the World’s fair, and unfortunately there was some reason therefor. Cne half the appropria tion was made under the Ormau go as you please days, aud the demo cratic board of managers, with Capt Thatcher at the head, should be call ed on further to explain. The first thing the republicans did when it took office was to cast the cheap out tit from the capitol and to defend that course in court. Remembran ces of the Ormau and the Thomas administrations are still coraiug to the top. The Chestnut Ticket. The democratic party either has no new material to work on or else it is trying to kill off its old. Just look at the office running record of a few of its state and local candidates, and you will no doubt cease to won der why the people turn them down. We have been called on to vote for or against these candidates as fol lows: Alva Adams, Governor, 4 times. John Shafrotb, congress, 0 times. Helen Grenfell, 8 apt. 4 times. Horace Havens, Secy. State 3times. Joe Manpin, congress, 4 times. J. B. Trailer, representative4times. Frank Tate, sheriff, 4 times. M. H. Exline, Supt. 3 times. Eight candidates have run 32 times and we believe should now be given a rest. REPUBLICAN RALLY! Congressman H. H.
