VOLUME XXII. BEET HARVESTING MACHINE Six Yura of Labor Rooults In a Won tforful Piece of Labor Savins Machinery Tbe American Beofc Harvester Co., of Saginaw, is celebrating its sixth anniversary by sending a oar load of beet harvesters to Colorado. One machine is now working in the beet fields of California, and reports re ceived give it highest praise. Two maobines will be shipped to Utah, and one to Garden City, Kansas,and one will be retained for work at home. The company received a dispatch from California last even ing stating the machine was doing splendid work and has been leased for the season by the oompany on wboee land it is operating and the rental for the entire season paid in advance eo well pleased the oompany with its work. For six years the oompany has been at work making improvements each year, antil now it olaims that the machine is a complete beet harvester, and will harvest from 3} to 5 acres per day according to the width of rows. The harvester palls, tops, cleans and delivers the beets into banohes, about 25 piles of which make one ton. The tops are entirely separat ed from the beets. The maohiue as it stands today will work in any kind of soil and does its work per fectly, not injuring the beet iu the least. The oompany has recent in quiries from Denmark, Austria-Hun gary and Sweeden, and other points in Europe, all deeiring information regarding the maobine. The Ameri can Beet Harvester Company hold patent for the United States, Europe, and Canada. Next year it ia intend ed to invade the sugar beet countries of Europe, where the machine will be introduced. Many thousands of dollar* have been expended in per fecting the harveeter, and the oom pany has ample capital to carry on the work neoeeaary to plaoe the ma chines in every sugar beet growing country on the globe. No maobinee will be manufactur ed for general sale. The right to manufacture and use by sugar com panies in given territories or states will be sold, as the machine is too expensive for the ordinary indivi dual to handle. —National Farmer. Bryan's Retreat. Mr. Bryan went in search of an issue a few years ago, and so be stumbled upon government owner ship of railroads, whioh is as dis tinctly in conflict with the prinoiplee advocated by Thomas Jefferson as anything else that he oould have found. But he wanted an iasue,and government ownership seemed at the time to be tising in public favor, and so he took it up. He soon found, however, that a large percentage of the Democrats, notably those of the south, would not follow him in that vagary. Still he persisted for a time and there is little doubt that egotistic faith in his own superiority to other Democrats caused him to believe that he could force his party to aooept both him and his newly found issue. But at last the ramparts of his egotism were so far broken down that he recognised it to be Impracticable to foroe the Democratic party to in dorse either state or national owner chip of railroads. Preferring a eham leadership to a total laok of fQllowing, he thereupon took coun eel of discretion and changed front. He now declares that government ownership of railroads will not be the issue next year, but that govern* ment regulation of those corpora tions will be still farther tested. He profeeees to adhere to his belief in government ownership, but he is willing to lay it aside for the present. This means that he will put it aside forever, if it continues to be object ionable to the massee of the Demo cratic party. His facility in forget ting iesuee is as marked as his readi ness to take up something new. What he now proposes is really an imitation of President Roosevelt. Notwithstanding he will try, there is no danger that he will deceive any body by loudly proclaiming that he was the great original disooverer of the plan of dealing with the rail roads which President Roosevelt has eo ably advocated.—Denver Repub lican.

At an early date these will be followed by another corps of engineers who will eetab lish the permanent line and grade, and from this time the work will be pushed with all possible dispatch. In a statement by Hon. A. E. Bent, president of the new oompany, published herewith, its plans are set forth in a straightforward manner, i Mr. Bent reoounts the conditions ex isting in the valley, the need for the new road, the purposes of the com pany and the plan it will follow m accomplishing these objeote. Mr. Bent's statement follows: > To the Press and People of the Arkansas Valley: —No territory of i equal area between the Rooky i mountains and the Atlantic ocean is i legitimately entitled to olaim the I ability to sustain a more dense rural i population than the Arkansas valley, ; from the oity of Pueblo to the Kan i sas state line. The basis of this i broad assertion is, the fertility of the • soil, the stability of the water sup ■ ply and irrigation works, our unex celled climate conditions, and the i recent favorable dcoision of the f United States supreme oourt in the ■ celebrated Kansas-Colorado water . suit. During the past few years the ; population of the valley has inoreas i ed at a marvelous rate, likewise has ' the traffic increased until now the • time has oome when the valley is en » titled to, and shall enjoy, greater i and better transportation facilities i With this in view, the Canon City, Pueblo and La Junta Railway and , Power Company has been organized . and is engaged in making an earnest . and determined efTort to locate, oon . struot and operate a first-class stand . ard gauge, interurban, electric rail way throughout the valley, r When first approached regarding . this enterprise, I positively deolined i to become connected with it unless ■ the project, after due considerarion, t should receive the approval, aub f stantial moral and financial support -of various gentlemen of high stand i ing in the valley.

Stanley, of i Manzanoia, together with various I other worthy citizens of Colorado and • other states, to pledge to the people r of the valley to exert every possible effort toward the accomplishment of the construction of this railway. ' Realizing full well that most power -1 ful influence will be promptly brought to bear in order to thwart our every step and controvert our purposes. Having been actively engaged in the development of the valley for over twenty years, it is but natural that I should welcome an oppor • tunity to assist in a worthy enter prise of this kind. Therefore I de t sire it clearly understood that we have entered into this undertaking knowing that the people are de manding it; knowing that sufficient i traffic is now developed and waiting ' for it; knowing that this is the very ’ best undeveloped transportation i in the entire west; and i knowing that the oertain rapid, fu -1 tore increase in population and , traffic is a guarantee of absolute safety to the investor and good pro i fits to the railway at reasonable rates. > Furthermore, we are absolutely free of any allianoe with any existing - transportation company, and we do i not propose to be bluffed off, begged > off, or bougnt off from our steadfast i determination to procure for the val ' ley an additional railway, running > up the valley on the south side of • the Arkausas river to the city of i Pueblo. We do not propose to be i parties to any stock jobbing scheme, nor do we pretend that we have the r road financed, but we do assert that we are associated with responsible , men who are in touch with capital 1 and who have absolute faith in the I true worth of the enterprise. 6 We also announce that our engi neers have been, for several days, • actively engaged m making prelim ■ inary and permanent surveys for the road. We are selling no stock, ask l iug no subscriptions, and paying I our own expenses, and propose to i exhaust every available resources in , the attainment of the results as out - lined.

The secret of the trans formation of the State from a dry semi barren expanse of prairies and hills to its present state of fertility is simply this: Colorado’s push and enwrgy coupled with the uatuaal resources of the state. Colorado Means Opportunity. Colorado means opportunity. The people of tbe east are begin i niug to realize this fact. For tins through tha medi um of systematic advertising by railroads, local boards of trade and state organizations they have had this bronght before them. Now they are finding it out for themselves. Never before in the history of 1 Colorado have the railroads carried so many homeseekers as they are doing now. They are coming from all quarters by every train. For tbe most part they are coming not only to see but to invest. The advantag es and the resources of the state have been set before them. They like us when once they see us and wish to become one of us, Every new settler that comes in brings jnst so much money into the state. Consequently yon reap your proportionate share of tha benefit. . Figure it ouL 8 Pages NUMMIN 7. 20 YEARS AGO Notes from The Lamar Register of July 23, 1887 The Methodiat ooufereoee sent Rev. H M.
