Downing The democratic gang now howl ing so loudly for eoonomj don’t re* far at all to their own record for seven jeers while in charge of the eoonty finances. Joel ask one of them aboat that period and see how mam he tarns immediately. The old three-per-oent oonnty tax democratic gang is again trying to fool the voters into trusting them with the oonnty government. They promise even more reform than they gavs os before and that waa a 20 per oent increase in oonnty taxes. The editor of the Sparks last week said the per capita circulation of this eoonty is S3O. Reliable informa tion from the five other editors of the oonnty shows jost 30c among the lot, so Mr. Lewises moat be omr rying the balance of $179.70 belong ing to the fraternity. The editor of the Sparks insists that anyone living east of the east line of Lamar is a resident of Kan sas, (not eyen allowing Carlton a place on the Colorado map) so it is easy to understand why he worked to prevent any of the offioes going to the seat end of the oonnty. The old ring of Lamar democratic boodlera, who kept the oonnty levy op to an average of nearly three per oent for five years, are now asking the new voters to give them oontrol of the oonnty in the interest of soon - omy. There are too many voters here yet who remember the doinge of ( the Lamar democratic gang in former daya to trust them again. A look over the democratic oobnty ticket will show yon that no plums worth holding have escaped the old three-per oent-levy gang of demo cratic boodlera, the only new mem ber being Thorne for judge, and he having joined every political organi sation in the state that would give him an office, was immediately recog nised aa a kindred spirit and taken into fall membership in the gang. The Sparks made its usual roar lest week on Boas Hasty and asks the voters to elect the democratic commissioners in order to get rid of him. It offers no eridenoe that the democratic party of the oonnty has reformed, eo the voters will take its promisee with considerable salt, aa they were given seven opportunities to fire Boss Hasty and refused, al though there were three democratic 1 doctors in the oonnty. Yon will have to invent something better than that to fool Prowers oonnty voters. |f*pj of theo fire from Mieeoori. Practically every taxpayer ib the oonnty knows and trusts Messrs. W. W. Reynolds and T. J. Sayler, re publican candidates for commission ers, and knows they will give tbs oonnty economical and faithful bus iness management No member of the opposition dares to say one word against either of them, and this in spits of the feet that the old Lamar democratic gang is trading all the rest of the ticket to get hold of the oonnty finances again. The Lamar Sugar Factory. “The long continued effort to se sore a soger factory at Lamar has at last reached snooesa. The American Beet Sogar oompany has purchased a tract of land upon whioh a modern factory is to be bnilt, and the work of oonstruotion will begin immedi ately. “Thera is no donbt that Prowers oonnty will be able to supply a suffi ciency of materiel to keep this new factory going without censing any shortage at the other plants of the oompany, and the decision to bnild this new factory is a striking proof of the snooesa of those already in ex istence. “Lamar, Prowers county and tbs Arkansas valley are to be congregat ed upon this new proof of industrial progress, end public thanks ere due to those by whose persistent work this resalt has been secured.” —Pueblo Chieftain. Republican District Candidates. The two candidates on oar dis trict ticket who will be elected or not ss Las Animas oonnty wills are men of ability and good straight re pnblioanism and worthy of yonr support. Hon. A. W. McHendrie, candidate for attorney, is a young attorney who passed the best examination ever mads before tha Colorado supreme oonnt, and while young at the prac tice has as a oourt officer become thoroughly familiar with the duties of the offioe he seeks. He is a Col orado boy and was raised in this section of the district, so we can lay as good claims to him as can Las Animas eoonty. Ha is popular all over tha district and will make a snoosesfnl canvass, without question. Hon. 8. F. White, of Holly, is candidate for representative from this district, and will add one more to Mr. Trailer's long list of defeats. Hs is an orator of ability, an attor ney of several years standing and a successful merchant at Holly for tha past seven years. He is thoroughly familiar with all the needs and in terests of this seotion of the district and will be heard from in the next general assembly as one of its lead ing and moat foroefnl members.

Bent the Great Arkansas Valley has a fit candidate for its first representative on the state ticket, as there is uo man in the wbole valley mors prominently oonnected with its development, or more represen meat of hnndreds of thousands of dollars in building other canals. He was one of the leading spiriU in securing the first sugar factory for the valley and the develop uient of that great industry. He was the pioneer in giving Prowers county a telephone system and Lamar an electric light plant. He was a foremost leader in organizing the associations that have promoted the great indus - tries of shipping alfalfa hay and cantaloupes from the valley, and the real estate associations that have spent thousands of dollars in advertising the counties of Otero, Bent and Prowers, and their great resources. To give s fall account of the various enterprises he has helped to promote would be to write the history of the Arkansas valley for the past 18 years, and the people of this section will show their appreciation of his work by handsome majorities in each county. To show that this feeling extends to the entire valley we take the following from last week’s issue of the Rocky Ford En terprise: “Alfred E. Bent, of Prowers county, is a name inseparably coupled with the upbuilding of the wonderful new empire which Colorado is bring ing into being by means of irrigation. He is one of the ferewost citizens of that section in the southeastern part of the state, and in naming him as its candidate for Auditor the republican state convention paid a tribute to the man and bis section. “Mr. Bent has promoted a nnmder of irrigation projects and no single man has done more to develop the arid region. He is now interested in several projects of this kind and is a successful business man. Mr. Bent is a thirty second degree Mason, and is High Priest of Orient Chapter No. 32 R. A.
