▼OLUMB XXII. Denver Boosters Here. On lest Thursday morning about 0 o’clock the speoial train oarrjring about seventy-five of tue business men of Denver and ladies, arrived in Lamar from Holly where they had paaaed the night. They were accompanied by the famous Twenty first Regiment Band, one of the best in the regular army, and as they marched from the train up Main St., and during the entire stay here this band furnished a splendid musical program which was a treat to all. A large delegation of our citizens ac companied by the Lamar Citizens Band was out to meet the train, and marched with the visitors up Main street. Mayor pro tern N. N. Mo- Lean headed the delegation and de livered a short speech of welcome. Congressman at large Geo. Cook and others were oalled on and made short talks after which many of the Visitors were taken over the town in autos, while the representatives of the business houses were making the aoquaintanoe of our business men. The delegation was certainly in every sense a representative one, and no finer appearing body of men has ever visited our oity, and the fact that they were under the ohaper onage of Lieutenant Governor E. R. Harper, the jovial representative of the state government, is proof positive that they were just as tine a crowd as they appeared. Denver has always been noted for the push and energy of its business men, that alone being responsible for such a beautiful and large city having been built without any apparent demand for it, and this boosters train com posed of mostly of the younger gen eration shows that the mantle is falling on worthy shoulders and Denver will oontinue to be the oity of the far west. Owing to the train being late the stay here had to be cut to one hour muoh to the regret of both the visi tors and oor people. The Hobo Millennium. Those of us who basely toil for a living, do, to console ourselves for our lack of wit and courage, sooff and deride the “hobo.” We speak of him as one destitute of “pride,” whioh, somehow, we regard as a noble quality, though it causes most of our troubles. The hobo acknowl edges that be has no “pride,” and is glad of it, but he denies the other allegations that we make against him; to-wit, that he does not concern himself with ths great problems of the race, nor seek to improve con ditions. As testimony to the fact that he does seek to better the world, be may point to the “Brotherhood Wel fare Association.” an organization of hobos founded by James Eads Howe, and the declared objeot of whioh is to absolve man from toil; or, at least from taskmasters. This association holds regular meetings here and listens to address es (whioh proves that the hobo is not afraid of work) and is endeavor ing to “point away.” Two weeks from now, Mr. Howe will address the society on “The Hobo and the Millennium.” We await that address with interest. In it Mr. Howe will doubtless show that the millennium will be ushered in by the hobo, who will ultimately convert the world to his way of thinking. It be a toilless 1000 years. And what happier condition oonld be imagined than one in whioh no person labored for another? After all, the hobo idea of the millennium does not differ greatly from the Christian idea of a future state. In both there is nothing to do but loaf, and sing. The hobo's idea is, in deed, superior, for he hopes to rea lize this condition on earth for all men, while in ths other, man must wait until they die, and then take chances of being sent to Hades, whioh is a place of everlasting toil. Speed the hobo millennium. —Ex. Enterprise Doings. Dr. Hasty spent a couple of days on his ranoh this week looking after his sheep.
