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
“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
“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.”

Our Candidate for State Auditor
In Hon. A. E. 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
“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
