This is a $250,000 improve ment that will save the Santa Fe company much money directly as well as indirectly, for the trainn have had to slow down and crawl over th - bridge for more tl an a year and this has necessarily cost much loss in time, especially in the case of fast trains. • • • [ From theOruuadH Time*.)

In the common schools there will be twelve teachers the coming year. There will be three at least, and per haps four rooms occupied in the new north side building. All teach ers have been employed but one of the second grade and the seventh aud eighth grade teachers.

There are several names missing which all would have liked to see in the list, but these have all gone to better positions else where. State Politics. * The Register in oommon with a number of others in this vicinity last week received circular letters from the republican county commit tee of Otero couuty booming G. W. Swink for governor this fall. Just why a republican committe should be sending out these circulars is be yond our ability to explain. Mr. Swink is a good man, but his candi dacy was sprung by the Rocky News and has been carefully nursed by the democratic press. The La Jun ta Tribune, the leading republican paper of Otero county, Mr. Swink’s home, had the following to say when his candidacy was first sprung by Patterson: “The great trouble breeder, known to fame as the Denver News, nomi nated George W. Swink, of Rocky Ford, as a republican candidate for governor of Colorado. * We will have to consider the source in this in stance. Mr. Swink has probably done more for the Arkansas Valley in the boosting line than any other one man. He was the instigator of Watermelon Day and is the recog nized father of the sugar beet indus try, for all of which he is entitled to due credit. From a republican standpoint he is decidedly off color, politically, having been affiliated with almost every party, except the republican during the last ten years. The nomination of the News, so far as we are concerned, is respectfully declined.” The only knowledge the republi cans of this section have of Mr Swink’s politics, is that he ran against and defeated D. E. Cooper, the reg ular republican nominee for state senator, a few yoars ago. It is evident to every one that the Arkansas valley can have but one place on the state ticket, and Hon. A. E. Bent, who in two years as •tate auditor has given the state OFS'XSIX.Ij OS' ZXT TZTZOZ CCVWTY LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. JULY 4. 1906 the best administration of that office we have ever had, and ban won more recognition for all the valley counties than their entire legislative representation has in the past, will be a candidate for state treasurer. By all the rules of party fairness and public bolicy he is entitled to the position, and should have the united support of the valley in his fight, and the springing of a new candidate is done mainly for the purpose of trying to weaken his can didacy. When Mr. Bent was defeat ed for the nomination for state sena tor by an Otero county man, he ral lied immediately to the support of the successful candidate, and it was Prowers-county that saved that can didate’s election. Prowers connty will take pride in presenting sncb a stalwart repnbli can and faithful public servant as Hon. A. E. Bent to the state con vention as her only choice for a place on the state ticket. Defection of Colorado's Senators. In the interval of Senator Patter son’s going from and coming to Den ver, say a month, this city had done well. His failure to create one of his old-time stampedes served the community. The people determined that an end should be put to the after-election excitement, which conld serve no good purpose. At Washington, at this hour, there would be need for Senator Patterson and Teller were they in harmony with their constituents. If the two senators from this state had carried ont the will of the people at home they would have been on the “firing line” during the struggle that has been going forward to secure legis- lation demanded by President Roose velt and the nation. These are the trying moments at the nation’s capi tal, where the opponents of the pres ident have sncceeded in getting a deadlock on the important measures in the conference committees. But Colorado is a nonentity in the upper body where the anti- Rooseyelt strength is fortified. The two senators from this state are play ing peanut politics at home or at tending to their corporate interests elsewhere. On the great issues be fore congress at this session neither of them have been heard from. We doubt very much whether a vote was recorded from Ibis state on any one of the critical votes called for. Throughout the railroad rate bill | debate, the unmerous discussions on | the Panama canal, the pure food bill, the regulation of the packing centers and other matters, the Colo rado senators, if they were in their places at all, remained dumb as oys ters. Denver has been much interested in securing an appropriation for a new postoffice building, but when the question was brought forward in the upper body a day or two ago the 1 seats of the Colorado senators were vacant. Benator Warren of Wy-I oming, always a sterling friend to this state’s best interests, stepped into the breach and aided by the re publican members in tbe house of representatives, secured the “half loaf” which is better than none. Colorado has been most unfortu nate in her senatorial representation in recent years. Senator Patterson has made everything a personal mat ter. His hundred of speeches were delivered on “personal privileges.” Senator Teller seems to have been obliterated by his younger collea gue. This year the duty will devolve on the republicans of Colorado to elect a legislature that can be depended on to send to the United States sen ate a man who is known to be in accord with President Roosevelt and who can be depended on to support his policies through thick and thin, against all opposition, not. excluding the powerful railroad combine.
