VOLUME XXI. County Notes. [From the Granada Timon.) The National Bloomer Qirls de feated the Granada team la»t Friday by a score of 6 to 3. • • • Miss Stella Hughes and Harry ltobinsou, of Lamar,*were visiting in Granada last Sunday. Russell Darrougb was thrown fiom a horse this forenoon in front of the Granada Mercantile Company’s store. He was severely injured about the Loud, but no bones were broken. Harry Hammond and family ar rived Tuesday evening from Braw ley, California where he has been for weeks iu the interests of the Granada Melon Growers’ Associa tion. Fart of the time he was sta tioned at Tucson, Arizona. • • • The contract has been let by the American Beet Sugar Company for the erectiou of 40 new houses on the Manvel ranch. The material for twelve is already on the grounds. It is the intention to cut this ranch up into small farms and let them out to teuauts for the culture of sugar beets. Progress of the Beet Sugar Indus try. The Department of Agriculture has just issued a report on the pro gress of the beet sugar industry iu the United States, and the special agent Charles F. Saylcr, has this to say in part: “In general it may be said that the progress being made is highly satisfactory to all the interests con cerned. The pioneer period of the iudustry—the period of experiment, of investigation, of doubt, of mis takes—appears to have ended, and the period of confidence, of reliable of careful advancement along safe lines is well begun. A paramount fact in the develop ment of our great West today is the reclamation of arid lands through irrigation. This is becoming the all-absorbing question in most of the area west of the 100th meridian. The great popular interest iu this subject has been inspired largely by the National scheme of reclamation by the use of funds derived from the sale of public lands. The cost of the undertaking is gigautic, but no less so than the industrial and social development which will speedily follow. The importance of the ■changes which will take place can hardly be estimated. Regious which are now barren and unteuanted will be settled, towns and cities will be built aud equipped with all the modern means of communication — railroads, trolley lines, telephone and telegraph liues, and rural free delivery of mails —schools and churches will be built, ann the pop ulation of these new communities will enjoy all the benefits and con veniences of modern life. To ac- all this in a decade seems W like the work of magic. One can hardly keep track of the evolution of the West. It appears like doing in a few years what has heretofoJe been considered the work of a century. Among the industries which will play the most important part in working this modern miracle is the beet sugar industry. Some of these government ditches are nearing com pletion. There are many under way aud whenever water flows, or is plan ned to flow on the land through these systems can be found plans aud prospects for establishing the beet sugar industry. The installation of a sugar factory is always accompanied by the intro duction of the most modern and scientific methods of farming appli ed to beet culture, and incidently to other branches of farm industry. In tensive farming is taking the place of sheep and cattle grazing. A Good Record. The republican party has been in control in this state for four yearsi In that time the state’s finances, had been left in a tangle from democratic and fusion ad ministrations, have been put in shape. Colorado is on a business basis. Its finances are in far better shape than ever before. Appropr iations aud expenditures are kept within the revenues.

Call early pH ° Nin °- 122b14ck MCLEAN BROTHERS rants are unknown, Four years ago in this city an election was a huge aud expensive farce. Crimes against the ballot were accepted as matters of fact. It was then a question of whether the republican state of Colorado ever would be able io overcome the fraud ulent vote cast in Denver. Com pared with population Denver’s rec ord iu election stealings stands high and dry above the best, or the worst, ever done in New York or Philapel phiß. , Under republican administration the ballot box has been purged. The notorious machine has been smash ed to smithereens. The citizen’s vote counts for something. Four years ago Colorado was in a ferment. Under the several state administrations dominated by Fat terson the spirit of anarchy and re volt was fomented. A criminal or ganization controlled the mining camps. Capital and labor were at daggers drawn. Mob rule prevailed in certain parts of the state. The professional agitator and dynamiter dominated. To-day, thanks to four years of re publican party rule, Colorado is en joying profound peace and prosper ity. The anarchical institutions have been overthrown. Labor is free. The state is prosperous aud satisfied. Then why should the apologist raise his voice in the republican party?
