VOLUME XXII. First Passenger Train. The first pnssengei train ovor Ark ansas Valley R. It. between Lamar and Laa Animas was ran on Monday of this week to accomodate the stock holders of the Fort Lyon Canal who were to hold their annual meeting at the court house in Las Animas that day. The train left the Lamar depot about 8 o’clock that morning and had only a few passengers here as mauy feared it would take all day to reach its destination and went on the main line trains. There were large num bers got on, however, at each station after leaving Lamar, and when the train reached Las Animas both ooaohes were crowded and many standing up. The trip was made in about two and one half hours includ ing the run over the Big Bend branch line, and everybody was well pleased with the trip. The day was a bright and pleasant one and the trip was a great pleasure to all who went. The country through which this road runs is a marvel to all who knew it a few years back, and now that this new road is about completed we can look for a far more marvelous develop ment in the next few years. Manager Ward of the Arkansas Valley road informs ns that the bridge over the Amity Canal will be completed this week and tbat the six miles of track will be laid to connect with the Holly branch before the end of auother week. After that it will only be neoessary to get the line worked into shape for a regular train service, and this great farming sec tion will have just as good fact]ties as the main line. The Santa Fe is putting a good many hundreds of thousands of dollars into these vast improvements, aod they have faith that this valley will soon be the rich est of their tributary territory along their whole line. A considerable portion of the capital which has built the sugar factories throughout this territory has been contributed by the men who are directors or in terested in the Santa Fe Railroad, and the road has been the greatest factor in working up this great in dustry which has increased the value of all the valley real estate many times over. When one looks over the vast investments of this great corporation in the valley it is easy to see that their faith in its gloroius future is even stronger than that of our people, and that they are mutu ally interested with the people in its further devolopment. Insane Man’s Act. This, Friday, morning while a freight train was nearing Syracuse, two men in a freight car saw the body of a man lying just south of th< railroad fence two miles east of the depot. To make sure ef the fact before notifying the authorities thej walked back and found that it was indeed the nude body of a man. They then hastened back to town and notified Marshal Forbes and others, who found it to be the body of George Satterthwait, a printer, who had worked in the Republican office here all of Thursday. He had come here from Lamar wheie he was known, having worked in the News office. He appeared to be about 25 years old. There is a theory that he fell off a train last night while trying to take passage east; that he reoeived injur ies on his head which rendered him insane, and while in that condition he took off all his clothes at a point 200 feet south of the John Reilly house now occupied by George Cdwards, as his clothes were laid out in a heap on the ground. The poor fellow then started to walk eastward, in his bare feet, through wire fences aud thistles, through snow and over frozen ground and with the temper ature hovering around zero, until be dropped exhausted and expired. When first seen two coyotes were near the body. Scratches showed where the barbs of wire fences bad resisted bis progress in his walk with Death. From letters found in his clothes it was learned that his father is J. N. Satterthwait, editor of the Douglas Tribune, Douglas, Kansas, who has been notified. A couple of dollars in money was found in his pockets which indicates that he was not as saulted for purpose of robbery. The body lies in the undertaking room. -Journal. The Lamar register More Democratic Harmony. While the democrats are trying to work up oourags by imagining the republicans are quarrelling among themselves, there are some very dis cordant notes in their own ranks, as the following dipped from a stanch democratic paper aud oopied with ap proval by the Bent Cnunty Democrat will show: “We are in receipt of several com munioations from Ed Taylor's advis ory committee, one inviting us to a banquet at Denver and both asking for onr sage oounsel and patting us on the back like all other politicians do. We have notioed that when peo ple get ready to ride a jackass they always pat him on the baok and we baye been patted and patted and ridden and ridden until we are tired of it. There is not a more consis tent democrat in the state, but we are sick and tired of the rotten man agement which the party in this state gets at the hands of the self-termed leaders, and are not making any pro mises right now whether we will work for the election of the democrats in Colorado or not. We will think it over, aud will probably be a jackass once more and be patted on the back aud then ridden again, but we pro pose to read the riot act to a lot of fool leaders and let the ohips fall where they may. We are getting mighty tired of defeat, and woold like to see somebody at the head of things that could make a winning once in a lifetime. We had every chance in the world to oarry the state last campaign, and nothing but the rankest kind of blundering upon the part of Tom Patterson was the reason we got soup and defeat. And now it looks very muoh like that same sort of dope was going to be on tap again, and if it is, this paper will oolt the ticket from start to finish and quit politics. “The statement is made ia the last communication we nave reoeived from this new advisory committee that they will have to depend upon the patriotism of the people for con tributions to oarry on a campaign. We depended on the patriotism of the dear people the last trip, and ifter spewing out about all the oraius of the party we went before khe dear people and asked for dollar contributions, and we got what? Just exactly SB. Appealed to the patrio tism of the people and got 98 worth >f patriotism! And John Barnett and Milt Smith swiped that eight dollars to the best of our knowledge and be lief. “The people have not got any pat riotism, that is none that can be ap plied to politics, and if that old rack et is to be played again just oount us out. We are not a saint; we are a sinner. We believe that it takes money and lots of it to wage a sue cessful campaign in Colorado or any other state, and we do uot propose to camp with any two-for-a-skate bunch like the alleged leaders of the last oampaign any more. We are democrats from the toes up and the oars down, but we traveled all over Missouri lately and will have to be shown.”—Ouray Plaindealer. Beet Sugar Good as Cane. That Colorado beet sugar is super ior to the southern cane sugar has been demonstrated by experts, and it is'expeoted as a result of the find ings just made publio, that the de mand for the sugar products of tbat state will be largely increased. Reports on the varies tests have just been^ received at the offices of the Western Sugar and Land com pany and the United States Sugar company in this city, and the result is moat gratifying to the beet sugar ■ producers ef the state. Among the last and most crucial of the experiments made under the supervision of experts, were those to , determine the use of beet sugar in preserving fruits. Both cane and beet sugar were used in a test of 2,- i 0)0 cans of various fruits, and the re sults were suoh as to destroy any be i lief that may exist regarding the , superiority of cane sugar. There , was absolutely no difference in the i results obtained. i The foregoing applies equally to i beet sugar produced in California, . Michigan, and in faot, all beet sugar » states. Ample tests have demonstra ted that beet sugar is equal to cane ’ for all purposes.—National Farmer* orrcaiAh araursPAPMi urvna cotrarrr LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 22. 1908.
