VOLUME XXI Election Thief Adams. Alva Adamn stood by and rubbed bis bands aud chuckled with glee when Senator Jesse F. McDonald and Senator Dick were thrown out of tbe state seuate in order to give the democrats enough votes to send Teller to tbe United States senate. Ue made no outcry against bis own political ballot box staffers when, day after day, hundreds of bogus ballots were taken from tbe boxes and shown to the public by the state Supreme Court. He was ready and willing to have them counted for himself. He has spent his spare moments ever since denouncing the court aud tne republicans who right ed that robbery. And be is still de nouncing Jesse McDouald for per forming his sworn duty, and taking the office he was elected especially to fill if a vacancy occurred. Alva Adams is against fraud and ballot box stuffing unless it is com mitted in his or his party’s behalf. This is the reformer who again threatens bn pester the people with a campaign of wind aud sophistry. This is the man who wauts to be vindicated What an amusing per son Alva is.—Ex. Make Your Voice Heard. Republicans, don't fail to get out and help nominate delegates and oaudidates. If you do fail to do this duty, you will likelv have it thrown up to you later on if you complain about the way matters were handled. Nothing is accom plished by kickiug uuless you get iu your party caucuses, primaries and couuoils, where your kick will he heard. The party leaders have all agreed that slates must go this >ear an l that every republican must have free access to caucuses and conven tions. Get iu early, do youi best to have your views adopted When the matter is decided, stand by the verdict of the majority and go dowi the line for the ticket aud youi party doctrines You cun win uu other way. Keftmueta can not re form without votes, and votes can not be made to accomplish their pur pose without a party organization. If you can not stand either party, you will soou belong to the “lude p n lent” party aud that party, to ac couipliah auylhiug, will have to have au organization. The best thing to do ia to secure your reforms within your owu party, for your party has the power to do things. So far it has accomplished wonders aud it will continue to do ao, but it is al ways iu need of the combined wis dom of the rank and file. Get in the procession and help some. Colorado Leads Colorado can raise the best sugar 1)0018 in the world, aud with propbr •care aud cultivation the average crop per acre can be doubled. This ia the opinion of Ernst Grotkass of Madgeberg, Germany, former beet sugar expert for the (iermau Agri cultural association, aud recognized as one of the most eminent authori ties on sugar beet culture iu the world. “The climatic aud soil conditions of Colorado and the region about the Kooky Mountains generally are un equalled anywhere for the sugar beet industry,” says Mr. Grotkass. “The beet sugar possibilities of the west are unlimited. This country can produce all its sugar without de pending on Cuba or other cane coun tries. I think ihe government does aot yet recognize the importance of tbe industry or < there would be greatei efforts visible to foster and protect it." Why? Why did the Denver News-Times •ml Post suppress tbe letter of May or Speer to the public 1* Why did they suppress that part of Judge Lindsey’s speech at the Woman's club in which he declared that the democrats had stolen more elections in Denver than the republicans? The answer is easy; they dare not print the news; they will not print anything unfavorable to tbd accom plishment of the shhemes they haye iu view—first to get control of the state democratic organization and second to fool a majority of the vot ers into putting their candidates in ito offioe.

The Lamar public schools will open on Tuesday, Sept. 3rd, and Lamar Union High School No. 2 will be opened on the same date. Once more Lamar has demonstrat ed its ability to rise to an emergency. The rapid growth of the town dur ing the last year rendered the two buildings heretofore occupied by tbe school entirely inadequate. In u few weeks after the openiug of school the handsome new Lincoln building will be ready for occupancy aud ample room is thus provided for all. Three additional teachers are employed for the grades aud one for the High School. With the pleas ant quarters thus provided aud with the increased teaching force the school will be greatly streugtbed in the efficiency of its work. The High school will be larger than ever and will occupy nearly all of tbe upper floor of tbe Main build ing and also the chemical laboratory iu tbe basement. It should be borne iu mind that tbe Lamar Union High school is au accredited school aud that its diploma will secure eu* trance to all the best colleges and universities of the middle west with out examination. During the summer another dis trict has joined the Union High School District thus making eight districts iu all. The increased in terest in the Union High School manifested by districts outside of Lamar as well as within our owu borders is tbe best possible indica tion of what the school is doiug It seems highly probable that the en rollment in the High School will pass the one hundred mark this year. The exceedingly low levy which has proven sufficient to con duct the affairs of Lamar Union High School for two years now fully vindicates the poaitiou of those who orrrrrfl.l- xtcj*xrof ruc-jj-EKs covmtt LAMAR.
