VOLUME XX. County Notes. rFrotn the Holly Chieftain I W. E. Fee, one of Lamar’s attor neys, was in Amity and Holly Satur day on legal business. • • • The brick and stone work of the Jones Bros, new opera house block is completed to the top of the second story and the floors and roof are now being put iu. It is expected to have the building finished by December 1. Ths work of manufacturing and laying up the concrete blocks on W. C. Simpson’s new store building is being pushed right along by J. L. Wilson and J. Q. Simpson. These blocks make a very substantial as well as a very neat appearing build ing, and are no doubt more durable than either stone or brick. • • . The Mace brother, from Lamar, have fitted up the north room of the Gill block and opened a restaurant and short order business. These young men have had a great deal of experience in this line of business and they know how to cater to the wants of the inner man. They have named their the Holly Cafe and will keep it open day and night. • • . [From theQranada Times.] Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Wylie, of Wash ington, Kansas, arrived here yester day morning for a visit with Mr. and Mrs W. \Y\ Jones. Mr. Wylie is a brother of Mrs. Jones, and was here with Mr. and Mrs. Jones in ’72 and ’73, but has not visited this country in the past ten years. The ohanges he finds in our country aie little less than phenomenal. • * . Last Saturday, an automobile run ning through town at a high rate of speed scared a team belonging to SV. A. Bell, causing the team to run away and smash things up a bit. A tele phone message to Holly placed Dep nty Sheriff House on thelookout and the reckless auto driver was captured by Mr. House. He was glad to get away by paying $lO and the.expense of his capture. Model Farms on the Santa Fe The Santa Fe railroad has practi cally decided to establish model farms along its lines under the Camp bell system of dry farming. This is one of the most important innova tions ever made by a railway in the west and will result in bringing thousands of dollars of eastern capi tal to Colorado and other western states where there are great areas of arid land lying idle. J. L. Donahue, vice president of the Colonial Securities company, left last night for Chicago, where he will confer with J. W. Kenkrick, vice president of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railioad to arrange the par ticulars for starting the farms. H. W. Campbell, the father of the system, sent Mr. Donahue a telegram stating that the cooperation of the Santa Fe was now assured and the officials were prepared for the devel opment of the scheme. Now that the matter has been de cided the establishment of model farms will be rushed as fast as possi ble, and next year will see many of them in operation. Their location on the lines of the railroad will give tourists an opportunity to study the yalue of the system and its support ers claim that this will be all that is necessary to brine eastern capital and farmers to Colorado to follow suit. — Denver News. Fort Lyon Canal Meeting The regular monthly meeting of the directors of the Fort Lyon Canal met in Secy. Kreybill’s office, in the court house, on Monday. Those who attended wore Fres. B. F. McClave, Dr, J. S Hasty and D. B. Nowels, of Lamar, J. J. Cooper, D. Mclntosh and Secy. Kreybill, of Las Animas. Aside from routine business the only business transacted was the adoption of a resolution granting to K. E. Messenger 210 shares of stock upon the payment of $216. This resolu tion was the result of a deoision handed down from the district court in favor of Messenger, ordering this water turned over. This erse, how ever, has been appealed to the su preme court, and the resolution was made to take effect in case the decis ion was against the canal company.

This order of the court is obviously one of great injustice to the present stockholders of the canal. Messen ger rented this watertoriginally from T, C. Henry, paying an annual rental therefor, in addition to the assess ments. These shares were among those excess rights sold by Henry. Now after using this water for ten years and merely paying rental, Mes senger gets a decree of court com pelling the issue of stock to him, of $3,750 worth of water for $2lO. How ever, the supreme court may reverse the lower court.—Las Animaa Leader. Municipal Integrity. The standing disgrace of Ameri ca is the failure of honest govern ment in the oities. Every Euro pean observer has commented upon our failure to provide effective ad ministration of the municipalities, and upon the success of the lowest elements in obtaining possession of their governments, There is hardly a large city in this country that has not been the viotim of graft. Mil lions upon millions of the people’s money have been stolen. Hundreds of men are living in luxury today, not through the honest exercise of their faculties, but through their success in getting their dirty hands into the public funds. Not content with successful graft in the past they are still hungry and thirsty. They oan never get enough.

Like the horse leeches’ daughter they still cry, “Give! Give!” Bold, aud cyni cal in their boldness, they exclaim, like Tweed, when discovered, “What are you going to do about it ?” There is a movement in favor of municipal ownership of pnblic utili ties in certain cities of the couulry. The movement has its advocates i n this city. But before municipal ownership will become desirable in any city of the land, municipal in tegrity must first be obtained. To turn the pnblic utilities over to tbe management of the cities, in their present stage of political develop ment, means further opportunity for graft and greed. An enlargement of the opportunity for political cor morants to steal is what mnnicipal ownership means, and it means noth ing more. Good government is the first essential in our cities, and it is one of the deplorable facts of tha time, that a goodly proportion of the men who are shouting loudest for municipal ownership are the men who would be least safe if a city’s affairs were placed in their control. —Denver Hepoblican.
