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
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
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
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
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.
