OCTOBER 19. 1904. Lamar’s Sugar Factory Site Definitely Selected by Ti» American Beet Sugar Co., and the Work of Construction Will Begin at Once. Will Give Employ ment to 300 Men. Queen City Celebrates There were “thing doing" in La mar last week a few boars after the Registei was printed. As it was the paper annonnced that the factory wonld probably be located in a few hoars, but there has been so many slips since the announcement that we bad secured a beet sngar factory, which was made a year ago, that we did not care to be too positive until it was definitely announced by the officials of the company. About 8 o’clock on last Thursday night the officials of the American Beet Bogar Co. signed the contract by whiob they purchased the Bent 100 acres just north of Lamar and east of the oouniy road, and agreed to build a faotory thereon and com plete it in time for next year’s beet crop. The price agreed on for the land was $12,500. The business men of Lamar on their part agreed to see that 4,000 acres were raised here next year, toUhU our citizens should give their nearty assistance in seeing that this contract is carried oat Tbas after two years of bard work by the business men and farmers of Lamar and vicinity, and tnnch knocking on the part of some people this great enterprise is assnred, and will be bnilt and conducted by the most experienced and most reliable company which is manufacturing beet sugar today. This last is an additional reason why oar people should feel jabilant over the result of their long and hard labors, and also feel well paid for both. Lamar, in the center of the largest and best watered body of irrigated land to be found anywhere in the west, and the county seat of Prow era county, having the largest irri gated area of any county in the ktate of Colorado, and already one of the beat and moot progressive Young cities of the state, will, with the ad dition of this great industry, jump to the front as tbe leading town of tho Arkansas valley east of Pneblo, and once in that position will easily maintain her standing for all time. Just watch onr smoke! It was no wonder that things broke loose in LHmnr last Thursday night after the official announce ment, and the citizens who had work ed so bard and endured such long drawn out anxiety as to the result of their labors, should get np au im promptu celebration- that will dis count the usual carefully prepared Fourth of July celebrations, for as we said before “thing were doing" iu Lamar that night, and for three hours whistles, bells, horns, drums, bonfires, speeches and yell were the order of the night, while staid old business men who haven’t beeu boys for twenty years before were cake walking np and down Main street. It was a hot time while it lasted and enabled our citizens to work off their surplus feelings so that they settled down next day as calm as if the bnilding of a sugar factory was a weekly occurence in Lamar. The benefits which will accrue to Lamar and the whole county have been gone over so often heretofore that it is useless to repeat them now, but it is a certainty that all real es tate in the entire oonnty ia worth from 60 per cent to 100 per cent more today than it was a week ago, and all sections and all towns will be benefit ted accordingly. The plans for the new factory have already been drawn and the work of construction will begin at once and a force of severiil hundred men will soon be at work on the site of tbe factory. The building will bo alurge and imposing one and the factory will give employment to 800 men and be operated at least five months every year. All the latest and most Up to date processes will be put in operation in this factory and it will be the model one of tbe atate. Tbe engineers will be in Lamar tomorrow to lay ont tbe switch to tbe new fac tory site and the work of construc tion will commeuce at once. The work of construction will be in charge of Chas. E. Howe, of Denver, tbe Colorado manager for the company, and an appropriation of over a half million dollars was made at tbe lust meeting of the directors in New York for the erection of this factory. This with the purchases of Prowers coun ty property made by tbe company in tbe paat two years and improvements being made thereon, will make the company’s Prowers county holdings oyer tbe million dollar mark. In addition to the factory tbe com pany will do much more improve ment work on their Prowers county properties this winter and wiil giye employment to hundreds of men fur many months. Anyone at all ao qnainted with canal building in this section has only to look at the work of construction on the canal they are bnilding to water tbeir lands under the old Lamar canal to see that they are slighting nothing, but are de termined to have the best that mon ey and fiue engineering can con struct. They are already purchas ing more small tracts of land and show tbeir faith in tbe country by their investments. With holdings of nearly .10,000 acres of land on the aonth side of the river and along tbe railroad, and large town inte rests in both Lamar and Granada, this great company will in a short time have the south side of the Ar kansas river in Prowers county as well cultivated and as prosperous aa is the north side, aod people passing through will get e real idea of what this section is capable of doing. This of itself will be one of the beet advertismenta for Prowers coun ty and one that has long been ne glected. Look out for Lamar and Prowers county! Our day has come at last. The officers and directors of the Lamar Beet Sngar Go. have been at considerable labor and some of them at large expense, all contributing more or less, iu the work of pushing this exterpriae to a successful is sue, and at times because of the nec essary secrecy that was imposed on them have been much misunderstood and by some very unjustly abased, hut all mnst see today that they have been faithful and earnest iu their work and fair with the public. The etreid has been greater on them than on auyoue else, and Lamar certainly owes them special praise and grati tude iu the hour of success. Tbe Pneblo Chieftain In its issue oi last Saturday mooning has the following to saX of onr factory: The Republican County Ticket. Now that the campaign is fairly opened and the voters have had a chance to look over tbe various tick eta in the field, wo wish to call the special attention of all our readers to tbe high character and fair geo graphical divisiou of the candidates on the republican ticket. They arc men of the heat standing in their home communities, and all capable and progressive citizens and taxpny era. The great north side is represent ed on the ticket by W. H. Blosser, ns candidate for tho important office of county clerk. Harve is a graduate of tbe Holton, Kansan, high school, is a capable business man and has made a success as an up-to-date progressive farmer, and will bring to the office energy, capability and good sound business judgment. He is popular with all his neighbors and they will all tell you that the county never had a better or more accommo dating public official than he will make. Larnar is represented by F. 11. KosacranH as a candidate for leeleo tion to the office of county assessor, aud no man has more thoroughly proved his worth than he has during his first term. He took charge of the office just after all assessed val nes in (he state had been messed up by the fool revenue bill passed for political capital by the democrats, and known at the time to he uncon atitutional. He proceeded at once to straighten out matters and equal ize values aud succeeded iu such manner as to save the taxpayers thousands of dollars, and anyone iu vestigating the work of bn office for tbe past throe years will ackuowl edge the people owe him a roelec tion Lamar is also represented for the first time on the republican ticket by a candidate for commissioner and in order to show her appreciation has put forward one of her best citizens and most capable business men, T. J. Saylor, for that office. It is sel dom that men of tho high character 8 Pages NUMBER 19. and business standing of Mr. Saylor ran bo indued to run for an illy paid an office an commissioner, and it is certain the voters will not got a chanoo to voto for any hotter man at any timo. If you want county af fairs handled in a businesslike uian i nor vote for him. L. M. Markham and Fred Loo, also represent Lamar, and are run uing for roeloctiou to the important though yery unroiuuuorutive offices of surveyor and coroner. They are both ellicient officers and good re publicans, which of course means good citi/.ons. Carlton has n represeutativo on tho ticket iu the person of Capt. J. H. Wing, a former attorney of good standing in the Nebaaska bar, and ouo who has no previously announc ed axe to grind. He is not seeking the office to carry out any personal spite, or iu the interest of any par ticular litigants, but will go into the office unpledged and in a position to do equal justice to all, alid give every interested party a fair show. The Captain is au old soldier ami spent three years of the best of Ins life iu his country’s defeuse. The Granada nominee is our pres ent couuty superintendent, Prof. J. A. itosebrough, who has held the office so satisfactorily to our people ior the past three years, and is now a candidate for reflection. Since tin* organization of Prowers county uo incumbent of that office has done so much to infuse new life into the work of our public school syntein as he has, and the practically unani mous support of the teachers of the couuty will testify to his fairness and ability as au officer. He has been in the lend ih organizing the Annual Eighth Grade commence ment exercises, which have done so much to stimulate the school work of the pupils, ami also the reading course for the pupils. He ban de voted more time to the work than any predecessor, and has spent con siderahlu of his own salary in etforls to euconrage work on the part of t he pupils. If you believe iu aiding the cause of education help reelect him Amity republicans have placed O. H. Thomas on the ticket as a candi date for sherilf, and because they know his worth a.ik tho people of the county to give him the neces sary support to wipe out that one vote which defeated him before. Mr. Thomas made a splendid canvas* for that offico three years ago against his present opponent, who was a can didate for reelection at that time, and was considered so popular that no one else car* d to run against him. Although unknown outside his own precinct Mr. made the can vass and only missed winning by one vote. Ho Las a splendid record in the past as an efficient police r.ffi cer, and is tnoioughly familiar with the duties of the office of shetilT. He is a winner this time Holly is also well represented on the ticket. L. F Mathews, one .if the most substantial and reliable ranchmen of the countv is a candi date for county treasurer. Lew is not related to or interested in any bank, and his candidacy is not made for the purpose of helping out. huv financial institution, Imt he is n cup able and experienced man, having been six years county clerk o: liar a couuty. He is a man of substantial means, the reward of his own efforts, and has the personal respou»b.ili< v which will insure the safe ha«. l':i.g of all tuotieys which the count; may trust in his hand*. He is running on his own responsibility and no one mail’s candidate forth.- posi tion. His elect ori will tie insured if the taxpayers look to their own in terests. \V. YV. Reynolds, the cahlidute for the east comiiitHHioiier’s «1 iat i iitt, can hardly he called any town's can didate as every pr.-emet in tie* conu ty made such violent claims to own ership in him tnree years ago, ilmt they rolled up such hii unprecede.it ed majority as rio candidate in ibis connty ever received b*-f. re « r wi I again soon. ,N othwithstatidinp this he refused to run for n third t.-rm a* treasurer, and only con-en'd | U make the race for couimis-ioner -<r. the earnest solicitation of hi* ms v neighbors and friends in the rad district. His record in office is connty history, and his thorough familiarity with the county's tin-m --ces and needs makes him an nieul Candidate for the position.
