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

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

The great foundation upon which our business is built. “Quality is long remembered after price is forgotten." Goods of inferior
quality, in any line, are expensive at any price, how much more so in our lines. Just at this time we are handling large quantities
of paints and painters'materials, we adhere strictly to our principle of selling only the VERY BEST.
We positively assert that we have no competition in the high grade of paints that we handle. Our stock is always complete.

it always rains good and hard, the

still, the raiubelt shifts 200 miles

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

years ago, and there will be no
change in a hundred years to come.

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
They have engendered a sort of so
cial democracy and a community of
interest among church people that
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
Last Sunday $2,007 was collected
for Mr. Sunday and presented to

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

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

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

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,
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
Miss Seeberger will be remember
jed by all old time Lamarites as the
bright little daughter of one of the
former editors of the Register, and
she is now a beautiful aud accom
plished young woman. 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

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

the waterway is completed, it is cer
tain that the local tratlic on the Isth
mus will produce much larger earn

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.
