VOLUME XIX. COLORADO LEADS. Pumpkin Show Contestants Yield When Colrado Enters Product Pie and Jack-O'-Lantern Lovers Gaze LonKlnslv at Centen nial State’s Exhibit. The state of Colorado is not only “koiu© pumpkins” when ii cornea to digging ore out of the ground ard r lining a particular brand of disturl • auce to which Geu. Sherman com pared the horrors of war, but she also has. the pumpkins. For in stauce, one mounted by the ceuten ninl State yesterday in the palace of Agriculture weighs 145 pounds. It is said to have growu on the same vino that produced the celebrated vegetable of nursery fame in which “Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater,” put his runaway wife, and thereafter managed to “keep her very well.” Iu order to show that the possi bilities of Colorado irrigated soil are not exhausted by the production of big pumpkins, the commissioners sent along a Chilian squash weigh ing 110 pounds, a hubbard squash weighing 27 younds, a turnip weigh ing 11 pounds, one beet weighing 31 pounds and a package of potatoes averaging 3| pounds each.—Globe- Democrat. The above is accompanied by a cartoon showing the next World’s Fair in Colorado and the buildings constructed by takiug pumpkins, squashes, sugar beets, etc., and bol lowing them out. Colorado is strict ly it, for agriculture. Democratic Economy Now that the old Lamar boodle gang is again in the saddle in the democratic party and is asking the taxpayers to give it control of the county finances on the ground of economy, it wonld be well for the newer residents of the comity to in quire as to the record of that gaug for economy in the past. It is well knowD to all who pay any attention to our Colorado laws and regala* tious that the only part of onr taxes over which the commissioners have any control is the county levies, the state, school district and town taxes being certified to them by the proper authorities arid they have no power to chnnge them. When the republi cans had control of the connty from *Ol to ’93 they made three annual county levies aggregating 00 mills, or 28 mills on the average per year. The democrats then took charge and the Lamar gang ran things to Bnit themselves for seven years from *94 to 1900 inclusive and made seven annnal levies aggregating 182 mills, or an average of 26 mills per year. This record would be worse too, if it were not for the last two years o.f that time when W. J. Johnston was chairman and in all strictly business matters acted with his republican colleague, J. N. Leslie, and reduced the levies to 22 mills for each of those two years, thus materially re ducing the average for democratic boards, which in the previous five years had been 27 3 5 mills per year. Since the republicans have taken charge again they have made three levies aggregating 49 mills or an average of 16£ mills per year. This is the kind of economy the demo crals have in store for the taxpayers if they can seduce them into return ing that party to the power it so grossly abused iu the past. That Great Debt. The democratic orators and pa pers are trying to make great politi cal capital out of the big war debt they claim the Peabody state admin istration has piled up forthetaxpay era to pay. They start out their Very misleading denunciation by the statement that the war expenses are over a million dollars when the and itor’s statement shows them to be $700,000. They give the state ad ministration no credit for the amount saved in the other departments over the last democratic administration which is SOOO,OOO, and shows what careful business methods have done in two years time. Prowers county’s share of the balance against this ad ministration over the Orman admin istration is just about $450, and the share in taxes to a man with an as sessed valuation of SI,OOO, which is more than the average, would be about 15 cents. This is the price he will pay to have law and order es tablished in the state in plaoe of an archy t aud the state made fit for law The Lamar Register jgjJ IT IS TIME!! \A 9 Take due notice and govern i TRADE MARK 2 , I TRADEMARK • yourself accordingly ■ The Season has arrived when Colds, La Grippe and Pneumonia MU TSBE LOOKED OUT FOR It is conceded by the great majority of people that PEPSO-QOININE and WINDSOR CODGH REMEDY ARE the greatest remedies in the world for those troubles.

Out side capital was practically shut off from Colorado from the time Orman accepted the report of his adjutant general that “there is no cause for alarm as the mines and other proper ty are in the peaceuble possession of the strikers,’’until Gov. Peabody dem onstrated that while be is in office the rights of property will be respected. Office Holders Union. The Sparks has been asking the people to vote the chestnut demo cratic ticket as the only means of getting rid of the office holders union. If Joe is trying to be sarcast ic at the expense of the democratic ticket he is certainly making a sac cess of it Let us see. Can any of you remember when Alva Adams was not either holding or running for office. Jußt once that we remember since we have beeu in the state, and that was when he withdrew because the general public seemed to think it was not necessary for a governor to keep up too many typewriters. Aud then there iB Shafroth. John has been sacking a public teat so continuously that he just can’t get used to work so is back io the run ning again. And Ammons for lieu tenant governor, the oldest iahabi taut when he struck the state found Ammons holding an office, and he has never let loose. Mrs. Grenfell too started in just as soon as the passage of the woman’s suffrage bill allowed her, aud has been keeping Ammons company ever since. Joe Maupiu for Second Distriat Congress man is only different in the fact that sometimes he failed iu his aspira tions and had to rest uutil the next election. Aud oar own l'raxler. You all know Trakler. In the 17 years he has been here he has held water commissioner three times and made Beven other attempts to hold office. Though often defeated he has stuck to the office seeking bus iness like a sick kitten to a hot board, and iB still there. Frank Tate has just held the sheriff’s office three times, that’s all. Miss Exline is making her third race for county superintendent on various tickets. While Thorne boasts of time he served as office boy for the attorney - general and other positions of equal political importance. Altogether it is no slouch of a record in the office holding liue and brother Lawless will have no trouble getting them in under the anion rales. Lamar Beat Holly to It. From the dispacthes sent oat from Lamar and the reports in the local papers, the erection of a beet sugar factory at that place for the 1005 crop is no doubt An assured fact. The coutract is made between the American Beet Sugar company and omcxJtx. os’* r'xeoTxrasxis ccttmtt LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY*. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 26, 1904. the Lamar Beet Sngar company and is said to provide for the erection of a sugar factory iu Lamar in time to work up the 1905 crop of beets, the business men of Lamar pledging five year contracts for growing 4,- 000 acres of beets. The factory is to be erected just north of town on a plat of 100 acres of land which the Ameiican Beet Sngar company pur chased of A. E. Bent at $12,5Q0. The business men of Lamar have, ever since the beet industry was first started in the valley, been thorough ly alive to the fact that a factory is a good thing for a town to have, and consequently they have put forth every effort to secure one. Their perseverance has at last been crown ed with success, and they have good reason to rejoice over it. We congratulate the people of Lamar for the remarkable enterprise they have shown in their efforts to seoure a factory. They have won ont by bard and faithful work and are to be commended. —Holly Ghieftain. FIGHT ON ROOSEVELT. Voters Bhould Rally to the Burport of Our Crest and Gallant Leader. The democrats have announced Ibeir intention of usiug the money John D. Rockefeller and other Standaid Oil magnates have been so freely pouring into the treasury of the democratic national committee’s treasury, to be handled by August Belmont, for the purpose in the last week of the campaign of baying up enough states to give them a major ity with the aid of the Solid South. This list is made up and Colorado's five votes are necessary to the sue cess of the scheme, and they iutend to pour enough money into.the state to buy up the majority that would naturally go to President Roosevelt on account of the hearty approval of our people for his sterling American ism and manhood. There is no question bat what his hearty sympa thy for the West and western enter prises and the assistance he haft giv en to every measure for the develop meat and npbnilding of this section, would under ordinary conditions prove sufficient to ensure him an overwhelming majority in Colorado, but our people have the power of the Standard Oil company to face in this fight, and success can only be attained by every voter taking inte rest aud coming ont to cast a vote for Teddy and trying to get his neighbors to come also. There should be no shirking of duty on this question, and no feeling of se curity. No election is won until the votes are counted. Let every Colo rado voter come up to the scratch and do for President Roosevelt what be did for us wheu the great irriga tion bill was held up by southern and eastern congressman, and there will be no question about where Col orado stands in the electoral college. Standard Oil money cannot prevail if the voters oome out; their only hope is iu an apathetio election, and for that reason they are now tr\ iug to make it appear tbit there is no fight on president. Go to your poll iug place next Tuesday, November Ist, the last day of registration with out witnesses, and see that your name and others that you know are registered, and then on the Btb day of November go and cast a ballot for Teddy. Then von can rest with the assur ance of your duty well done. Lamar May Have the Experience. Some of the people of Lamar who are trying to make out that the de portation of objectionable characters is a great crime, had better pay some attention to the following taken from the Rocky Ford Gazette and show ing what may happen during the building of our factory: “The deporting of men has sud denly become a real naughty pro oedure among certain people in this vicinity. To hear them talk one would think that depot ting was the unpardonable sin. it is not such ancient history that our people have forgotten the deporting that was done in the city of Rocky Ford whou onr sugar factory was being built, when a gaug of obstructionists was escorted out of town by a posse of 1 indignant citizeas and told to “bike!’’ The only crime that these men had committed was to attempt to tie np the work on onr factory. Some of these same men who are so vigor onsly denouncing now were aruong the most active in deporting the lo cal agitators. You see, things look different when brought home to us.” Suppose this should happen in Lamar and the obstructionistsshculd outnumber the citizens and the gov ernor should say as did the last dem ocratic governor: “There is no need for alarm as Lamar is in the peace able possession of the strikers.” Wouldn’t that jar yon f The peo ple who are congratulating them LAMPS! LAMPS! LAMPS! LAMPS! LAMPS! fe] THE FAIR selves that the situation at Cripple Creek is of no concern to us, can see by the above that the only differ - ence in the Rocky Ford situation during the building of the factory was that the citizens outnumbered the disturbers and Mettled the matter themselves. The Chestnut Party. Here are three prepetnities which the people of this state would do well to get rid of: The perpetual candidate The perpetual state chairman. The perpetual Old Perplexity. Adams has beeu a candidate off and on—mostly on —for twenty years; Milton Smith has been demo cratic chairman well, how long is it? Aud Old Perplexity has been perplexing, 10, since the early ’7os We may have to stand Old Per plexity but we can get partially rid of the other two in November. Register Tuesday, Nov. 1. Regen ter! No difference what section of the county you come from, in voting the straight republican ticket you will vote for some of your home people. No party has ever placed a ticket before the voters of Prowers county heretofore of which this could be said. The management of the finances of a big corporation like Prcwers county is a business affair and should bo run on business lines. No party has ever placed before the people at oue electiou before two such thorough business men and honest, reliable citizens as T. J Sayler and W. W. Reynolds for the manage ment of the county government No deals will ever be countenanced by them, and no tnonsy of the tax pay ers wasted. They are both pro gressive, careful and enterprising business men, and if elected every taxpayer will foel assured of his money being properly spent. They are a platform for the county ticket in themselves that will carry more weight that any Hmonntof platitudes that can be evolved by a *resolu tion committee.
