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. The list
of appointments are as follows:
Misses Jessie Sammons, Rachel
Ford, Louise Gauss, Myrtle Marx aud
Mrs. Ella D. Barnes, of last year’s
faculty, and Miss Margaret Watson,
of Denver, Miss Mabelle M. Joy, of
Maryville, Missouri, and Misses Ida
Wilson and Rosa Thoman of Lamar.
This list so far as the teachers are
known will give general satisfaction
to the patrons of the school, aud the
new teachers come with highest rec
ommendations. There are several
names missing which all would have
liked to see in the list, but these have
all gone to better positions else
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
“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
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
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
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
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. Ex
