VOLUME XX. LAMAR’S NEW RAILROAD Connecting the Great North Side Country with the Factory and Mill at Lamar Matters oonneoted with the new railroad to the farming country north of Lamar have developed rapidly the past week, and enough has now been done to enable us to state that the road is a sure thing. Mr. Channing M. Ward, of Chicago, representing unlimited eastern capital announced at the meeting on last Saturday afternoon at the opera house that he had the arrangements made and ma terial under contract and oould go at onoe when the right of way - v is scoured, that being the only in ducement the company will ask. The meeting was held to develop the sentiment of the people on the sub ject, and was addressed by Messrs. Lubers and Ereybill of Las Animas and a number of north eiders and Lamar people before Mr. Ward made his statement. At the close the large majority both of the farmers and the Lamar business men announced their intention to take hold of the matter with the usual Lamar vim and push it through. A second meeting held at the club room on New Year’s day appointed a commit tee consisting of C. C. Goodale, Fred Burger and I. L. Maxwell to secure the right of way. The committee has been busily at work since and have secured a considerable portion of the right of way already. The road will begin at Lamar run north on half section line for six miles, and then run northwest through the heart of the rich Big Bend valley, and extend as far west as it can be profitably nin, probably running to Sugar City. A finance committee consisting of W. F. McCue, T. J. Sayler, W. J Johnston and Granby Hillyer was appointhd at the meeting to secure the funds that may be necessary to carry on the work of the right of way committee. This road running diiectly through the heart of the north side, and bringing all sections of that great farming region within a few miles haul ef a railway station, will be the greatest boon that could be secured by our people, both farmers and business men. All our citizens should put their shoulders to the wheel and work for the success of the road, end this will insure success. County Notes.

If anybody proposes anything that is for the town’s good get out your little ham mer and oummence to knock until you have discouraged everyone who thinks of doing anything to help the town. Have a bucket of cold wat*r handy and if anything for the go( d of the town is agitated, douse it good. People like to live in a town where some one is always knocking* A reputation of that kind will al ways attract people to a town. They like to live in a town full of knock ers. If a new railroad is headed towards a town, knook it because bonds are asked and it may increase your taxes fifteen cents. If any body proposes anything, find out whether it costs you anything and if it does oppose it. You can’t af ford to favor anything that costs you money even if it does help the the town. Let the town take care of itself. If anybody starts on any thing that is going to make him some money, knock on it. You oan’t afford to help anybody but yourself. If you are in a business knock on every other man who is in the same business. Better have the trade go to some other town than to have it come here and let your competitor get it. If a road is asked for knock. The country people don’t need any road to town. Let them open gates. They have lots of time. You don’t need any roads to go to the country on. If the countiy people need roads to get to town, let them fix them. You’re not interested. Let r>n»gr<->T »t- XTEVrSPJLTXS ©W COVNTT LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY.
