VOLUME XXII. Sugar Campaign In a few days probably before an other issue of the Register the sugar campaign for 1907 will be on, and the marketing of beets will be under way all along the Arkansas valley. The acreage of beets bas been in creased at every factory in tbe valley in Colorado and some of them more than doubled, and in addition there is a heavy acreage for the new facto ry at Las Animas. This faotory will be ready to begin the season at the same time as the othei factories. When the season is under way these factories will handle about 5000 tons of beets per day, and pay the farmers at the rate of $25,000 per day. Even at this heavy daily average it is estimated that the factories will run oyer 100 days on the average. This is certainly a healthy size for an infant industry that just seven years ago required the entire valley crop to keep one faotory at Rooky Ford running for sixty days. That season about two hundred thousand dollars was distributed to the farmers of tbe entire valley. This year tbe sum will be between two and three mil lions. The end is not yet either, as there will be three or four new fac tories constructed in tbe next two years. The sugar beet is the great est land developer and prioe raiser yet discovered, and its work has only just commenced here. It is also a great business and labor boomer, as nearly 3000 men will be employed at the six factories during the cam paign, besides hundred of extra la borers required in harvesting the beets in the fields.

Another Financial Institution. The Farmers’ bank opened its doors for business at Lancaster Tuesday morning. John Adamson is the man back of it and as be has unlimited capital at his cemmand and abundant experience in the banking business we bespeak for him the success he so richly de serves. The Holly oountry is well repre sented with financial institutions now and all of them are clean and tev Mid. —Holly Chieftain. Might As Well Be Good. Henry Clews, the New York banker, tells the corporation mag nates and managers that they might as well fall in line and let the presi dent and the public understand that they will strictly obey the Inter state Commerce and Sherman anti trust laws. Ho says they might as well accept the inevitable since there will be no let up in the polioy of en forcing the laws. Meantime Mr. Clews sees no cause for apprehen sion in business. He calls for calm ness and self-poise by those who control the purse strings, giving needed assistance to concerns of proved soundness and earning capa city and rigidly withholding it from those whioh are unstable and un duly speculative. Under such policy there is encouragement for the pur chase of good stocks for permanent holding.—Ex. Who Wouldn't Go.

Governor Buchtel’a friends won a notable victory over Patterson and yellow journalism in tbe Methodist conference at Grand Junotion yes terday. The governor has been persistent ly villitied by tbe Patterson sheets because he would not usurp tbe functions of tbe mayor, or the sher iff, or the distrioft attorney, or other officials of Denver. The Patterson press has been aided and abetted by a small company of men, some of them preachers, who oonolnded that the governor was not doing his duty because Patterson said so. They stirred up considerable feel ing among their ministerial brethren at the Grand Junotion conference and attempted to make the confer ence believe that the governor was not doing bis duty, either as a state executive, or as a consistent mem ber of tbe Methodist ministry. The opposition to the governor was led by a political preacher from Denver named Rader, who was chap lain of the last legislature and who broke into the limelight by a series of foolish prayers, which not only lowered him in the eyes of the peo ple bnt really had a tendency to make the entire denomination ap pear ridiculous. He was the type of man who was fighting the governor and stirring op jealousy and strife. It may be said to the credit of the lay delegates to the conference that they saved the day for the governor by working among the ministers. They knew that the yellow journals were only waiting to yell that the governor had been repudiated by the Methodist conference, and were ready to harp upon that fact for the next six months. They knew that if he were re jected as delegate to the general conference that it would be made to appear that tbe entire Methodist church had deserted and disowned the governor, no matter how fax from tbe trnth that might have been. And thus it was that Governor Bucbtel received tbe exceptional and unusual honor, while chancellor of tbe university, of election as dele gate, also, to the conference. The honor was worthy and deserved and timely. So far as his critics are concerned the governor may never hope to satisfy them. The angel Gabriel, if he were in public office, wonld be abused for not doing his duty. Bnt no man is greater than the law and no governor will attempt to over ride the law. Governor Bucbtel is the same sort of a citizen that he bas been for 20 years, and just as firm I an advocate for law and order —that wsjrarxpaa ©»* prouters oovwtt LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 11. 1807. may be taken for granted. Bnt be can de some things, and others be cannot do. If he is wise he will do his duty as he sees it, and let bis critics, either lay, clerical or yellow, keep on barking until they get tired of it.—Colorado Springs Telegraph. Patterson in the News lays tbe blame for tbe defeat of his scheme to beat Chancellor Buobtell on oar fellow townsman, L. Wirt Mark barn, who was in attendance'as a lay delegate at the conference. If it ia true Mr. Markham is to be congra tulated on his good work, forcer tainly nothing could injure the Methodist church more than to al low itself to be used as a tool of tbe Patterson spite machine. The lay delegates by a unanimous vote ex pressed their entire confidence in Governor Bucbtel. Prowers Notes. Mr. Mann has finished shipping his wheat from here to Lamar. Several Prowers people spent Thursday in Rooky Ford. The proprietor of our hotel, who bas been somewhat iudisposed for a few days, ia now improving.

Then between races there were other amusements such as broncho bust ing, roping, bucking cow, etc. Those who stayed away missed something.—Holly Chieftain. 20 YEARS AGO Notes from The Lamar Register off Sept. 10, 1887 Ad election was called for the first Monday in October to vote bonds for $22,000 to buy the water works.
