[From the Amity Optimist.J According to agreement, the Santa Fe unloaded five carloads of cinders at Amity the first of the week to be used in street improvement. Men with teams have been busy placing the cinders and as a result a tine Bidewalk now extends from the de pot to the postoffice, and strangers entering Amity in the dark hours of night can find their way up town without getting into mud shoe top deep as has been the condition in the past. • • . Owing to the extreme high water in the river Tuesday caused by recent heayy rains, much anxiety was felt among our people for while. The river overflowed just north of the railroad bridge but not enough to cause material damage, and did not reach town. Considerable drift came down stream and the railroad bridge at the east approach was moved about four inches out of line, in the center it has settled some six inches. Traffic was in no way re tarded but trains approached very cautiously. The Arkansas Valley. Some of the newspapers of the valley seem to be enfoying great prosperity. The Holly Chieftain has been enlarged and improved. The La Junta Tribune printed a handsome souvenir edition to cele brate its birthday, and the Las Ani mas Leader gets out an extra sheet each week now. • • • In the district court this week Judge Northoutt signed a decree awarding the Fort Lyon Canal com pany 172 second feet of water in ad dition to the priorities for 701 cubic feet of date August 31, 1803. This gives the canal priorities for 033 cubic feet. In addition to the above the caual has something like 200 feet on account of the loss it sustains when carrying its second priorities for 033 cubic feet. The petition of the canal company asking that it be awarded this additional priority was filed about two years ago. The Cat lin ditch through its attorney, J. M. Waldron, fought the matter bitterly, and while the court upheld the cou tentions of the Catliu company, as a whole it sustained the position taken by H. L. Lubers, attorney for the Fort Lyon Canal company. —Bent County Democrat. • • . The Tribune is reliably informed that the Santa Fe will build a ninety foot two story addition to the depot during the present summer. The plans are now in the bauds of the Harvey House people for approval and work will be commenced in the very near future. —La Junta Tribune. * * . GETTING DESPERATE. As the question ot how the con tending aldermen will proceed and be met is subjudice now, the Tribune interviewed the principals, the at torneys, and exhausted all sources of information, and as near as we can learn the case is about in this shape: The Citizen aldermen have served a quo warranto on the present aider men and they are to appear before The Lamar Register W-E-T—P-O—T-W-K. ®S3T QUALITY -S3® The great foundation upon which our business is built. “Quality is long remembered after price is forgotten."

Down at Garden City they are twisting the octopi’s tails pretty rough and have ordered Standard Oil Co., to take their old oil tauks out of the city.

We have always noticed that when sit irrigation project is to be submit ted to the farmers of Finney county it always rains good and hard, the river gets up, aud it is too wet to plow, but what is more remarkable still, the raiubelt shifts 200 miles west The farmers should romem her that the wheat crop in western Kansas was lost last year for the lack of moisture at the proper time, and that the first crop of alfalfa was short. There hasn’t been a year in the past twenty that some crop or otuer bas not been lost for the want of water. The climate of this coun try is the same as it was a hundred years ago, and there will be no change in a hundred years to come. We need irrigation, and w« need it bad, aud now is the timo to get it through government aid. —Garden City Herald BIG REVIVAL The Sunday Meetings at Canon City the Greatest of the Kind Ever Held in Colorado. The great religious revival which has been in progress at the Taber uncle for the last four weeks under the preaching of Evangelist W. A. Sunday closed last Monday night with a total of 934 conversions, mak ing it the most remarkable series of meetings in the number of confes sious ever held in Colorado. But it is not in the number of those that professed a faith in Christ alone that rendered these meetings of more than local interest. They have resulted in a moral aud spiritual up lift that will have an effect upon the people of Canon City for years to come. They have engendered a sort of so cial democracy and a community of interest among church people that OFFICIAL ITE-arSFJLFEF OF COinTTY LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. MAY 3, 1905. will make them an irresistible power for good. They have resulted in a spirit of unity that will enable all to enlist under the banner of the Re deemer and go on to still greater victories. The most sanguine hopes of those who were instrumental in bringing Rev. Sunday here have been more than realized and the work accomplished for the Master marks a distinct epoch in our relig ious annals. The financial outlay which the en terprise demanded was easily aud cueerfully met, fully $4,400 being raised to meet the exigencies of the occasion. Of the amount subscribed approximately $2,300 went into the current expense fund, viz: the con struction of the Tabernacle, lights, janitor hire aud a score of other things. This sum was raised by voluntary contributions several weeks ago and all indebtedness has been liquidated. Last Sunday $2,007 was collected for Mr. Sunday and presented to him as an evidence of public appre ciatioo of bis services, it being con sidered impossible to compensate him upon a basis of value received. From whatever standpoint the meet iog just closed may be viewed they were eminently successful and their influence will be manifest for a gen eration. The series of meeting at the Tab ernacle Easter Sunday will nevfr be forgotten in Canon City. They mark an epoch in the history of its religions evangelizatiou that stands out distiuct and prominent it its an nals and gave an impetus to a move ment that must inevitably influence the community for good for many years to come. The day was one of the most disa greeable experienced here for six months, but that fact did not deter people from leaving the comfort of their homes and making their way to the big temporary structure at the intersection of Macon avenue and Eighth street to hear Rev. Sunday preach the gospel in his forceful, eloquent manner. Dnriug the day fully six thousand people listened to bis appeals for men and women to forsake tne error of their way and enter upon a Christian life. —Canon City Record. Nebraska Young People. A wedding solemnized at high noon today unites two of the wealth iest and most influential families in North Piatt, Neb., the bride and groom milking the trip to Denver so as to avoid the elaborate ceremony which a wedding at that place would have meant. Miss Louise Seeberger, daughter of E. F. Seeberger, one of the most prominent bankers and real estate men iu North Platte, and Francis Loo Tobin, of the firm of Harrington & Tobin, operating the largest mercantile store between Omaha and Denver, are the princi pals and their marriage is the cul mination of a friendship formed in childhood back in North Platte. Mr. Tobin was born there and Miss See berger, who was born in Lamar, Colo., went there as a small child. They became acquainted and were fast friends. A few years ago both came to Denver to attend school. Miss Seeberger going to Loretto Heights and Mr. Tobin to the Col lege of the Sacred Heart. Both com pleted their studies not so very long ago and resumed their old acquaint ance, which resulted today in their in an i age. The ceremony was performed at Logan Avenue chapel at high noon by Father H. L. McMenuwin and was followed by a wedding break fast at the home of the groom’s mother, Mrs. M. C. Harrington, of 934 East Seventeenth avenue. Mr. aud Mrs. Tobin will leave touight for Colorado Springs and other points in the state, after which they will go to their future home in North Platte, Neb. Mr. Tobin is manager of the Har rington-Tobin Mercantile company’s store at North Platte as well as being junior partner, and although but 22 years of Hge has a marked talent for business. Mr. Seeberger, father of the bride, is at the Brown hotel, hav ing accompanied his daughter to Denver. Miss Ida Ottensteiu at j tended Miss Seeberger as brides maid and Quinby Tobin, brother of the groom, was best man. —Denver Post.

The family has a host of friends here who will join with the Register in extending heartiest congratulations and best wishes tor the future. The Panama Railroad. Much public interest ceuters about the operations of tae Panama rail road now that iH stock has been pun chased by the United States Govern ment. Its future management is of pecular interest to the owners of transcontinental railway stocks. The probable rate redaction policy cannot tail to have a marked influ ence upon overland rates from Cali fornia. The result of the company’s oper ations for the year 1904 was ex tremely favorable. After the pay - ment of operating expenses and til ed charges there remained net earn ings of $1 10,895, or more than 10 per cent of the capital s tock. The prosperity of the railroad is assured by the construction of the Canal. During the ten or more years before the canal is opened, the road is as sured of a large increase in its local and through business and jeven after the waterway is completed, it is cer tain that the local tratlic on the Isth mus will produce much larger earn ings than those which have hitherto received. An important transaction mention ed in the report is the termination of the exclusive contract with the Pa cific Mail Steamship Company, which has lasted since June 11, 1902. The termination of this agreement is ex pected to introduce further confu sion into overland freight rates. The report contains the statement of the Committee on Interstate Com merce of the House of Representa tives. The conclusion of this report is that the Panama Railroad is a val uable property which should be re tained and operated by the United States Government. The committee holds however, that the rates now charged are much higher thau would be necessary to insure a fair return on the capital of the road, and recom mends a considerable reduction. The committee also recommends an improvement in the steamer connec tions of the railroad. The experiment of public opera tions of the Panama railroad will be watched with groat interest. This is the first attempt of oar federal government to embark upon an en terprise of this character, and the re suits of the experiment will throw much light on the possibility of government operation of railroads under the American political system. - Railroad Word.
