VOLUME XXIII. STATE COMMITTEE MEETS. Big and Harmonious Meeting of the Republican State Organization. Denver. Colo., Juy 25.—Eathus-1 asm and unanimity of action marked the proceedings of the meeting of the republican stare committee today. The recent flop of Bill Evans to the democratic, party where he has found he can get m* cb more consideration than he ever, did from the republican: has left the party without any dis cordant element. There was a large attendance, all couutles being repre sented, and from every quarter came cheering news or the prospects tor an overwhelming victory in Novein her. There being no county committee iu Denver coui.ty, which the supreme court has decided is a separate organ ization tom Denver city, a commit tee of seven consisting of State Sen- James C. Burger, chairman, Wil- W lls V. Elliott, C. D. Ford, W. R. Free man, J. H. Harrison, Horton Pope, J I**. Vivian, was appointed to organ ize a new county committee iu Den ver. The last vestige of the Evans influence in the party was thus re moved. The largest convention ever held in the state was called to meet be tween September 12 and 16 according to which date the chairman can se cure the big auditorium. There will be 1105 delegates aud Prowers county will have 13. LOOKING OVER COLORADO. Secretary Wilson in Btate to Make Through Investigation. Cascade Canon, Colo., July 25. Sesretary of agriculture, James Wil son, is here to investigate complaints on the federal supervision aud tax of grazing lands in forestry reserves, and to satisfy himself of the justice or injustice of the protests that have been made. Likewise he is here to inspect the forest reserves, to determine their fu . ure growth and expansion, and incid •ently to fix the responsibility, if pos sible, for recent damaging fires, with .a view to punishing the guilty ones. He will also inspect the breeding .station at the State Agricultural coll } ego, but he will not take a hand in tthe fight against President B. O. Ay ies worth. “The station is a Colorado institu tion and not a Carlyle institution.” said the secretary. “Regardless ol the outcome of the controversy at th Agricultlral college, and whether Carl yle goes to Kansas or not, the breed ing station will remain a permanent factor in the development of Colo rado.” Regarding the grazing problem, Se< retary Wilson is here to get informa tion and not to impart it. Complain have been made that the policy of the auministration is keeping out homeseekers; that there is needless attenelou paid to forestry growth; that there has been to much tree cut ting by the experts who have been sent out here, and that these men have antagonized settlers by their curt demeanor and reckless display .of authority. Secretary Wilson will look into -.these things. It may as well be understood at the outset that this cab ftnet officer is in sympathy with the administration’s politcy, as especially applied to the forestry reserve. He will nt be quick to act on complaints that are indirectly a criticism of that policy. .-»♦« Preparing to Pack the Court. On various occasions the Rock> Mountain News has indicated that the democratic campaign this fall wil be largely based upon the proposition of getting a supreme court that will he amenable to the wishes of Mr. Patterson and those who surround him. He raises, of course, the old cry, an “anti-corporation court,” for that seems to be the best card to play and, if possible, to arouse the preju dices of the people. But his real pur pose is to have a court that may be controlled by Patterson, that will ren der its decisions along lines that are pleasing to him, and, if possible, wipe out the sting of that contempt where in he was fined and was compelled to pay SIOOO and costs for attempting to rule or ruin the court, by casting aspersions upon its integrity. So far as Mr. Patterson is concern ed, therefore, the supreme court will he his chief aim and object in this gall’s campaign. The people will neec to arouse themselves and be on their guard against his designs. The court shold be neither corpo ration nor anti-corporation, it should neither be Patterson nor anti-Patter son; but it should, and will be, in a position to give every individual and every corporation a fair and equal and impartial hearing. And the best way to do this will be to frown at once upon these efforts to pack the court in advance and to render a ver dict in November, as was done two years ago, in favor of an honest, in dependent and unbiased judiciary.— Colorado Springs Telegraph. The Lamar Register MASS MEETING. Citizens Meet at Commercial Club Room to enter Protest A- | gainst Factory Closing. The large reception room of the Lamar Commercial was packed last night at the mass meeting of busi ness men and citizens called to take some action on the ‘matter of closing of the sugar factory for this cam paign. L. F. Adams was elected chairman of the meeting and N. N. McLean sec retary. The chairman announced the purpose of the meeting and then re quested Mr. Gerecke, the local mana ger of the factory, to give the facts of the situation as far as he felt ad visable. Mr. Gerecke stated that owing to the shortage of water this year it was estimated that the total touage of the American Beet Sugar Co. would not furnish more than a two thirds campaign for the Rocky Ford factory, which being the largest and therefore the most economical to run, it had been deemed advisable to run all the beets there. The additional freight rates he said were a trifling matter compared to the expense of opening all three factories for a few weeks run. He stated that person ally he would like to see the Lamar factory run but from the company’s standpoint It meant a heavy loss and he did not see how they could do otherwise. He said that the growers would be taken care of and deliver beets Just as heretofore and be paid as last year. Pulp where asked for will be delivered from local factor ies, and farmers will probably not have to silo at all. A general discussion followed and it was soon apparent that this sec tion, which from the start of the in dustry has been the warmest support er of the American Beet Sugar Co. in this valley, and the business men of Lamar who have been particularly active In working for its Interests, would not be content to let the mat ter rest without a vigorous protest. On motion a committee on resolu tions was appointed by the chair as follows: Geo. H. Thorne, W. C. Gould, Chaa. Maxwell, W. E. Eastou, and W. A. Zimmer. The chair olso on motion appoint ed a committee of five to personally present the resolutions to the Colo rado officials of the compauy and en ter' an emphatic protest against what all believe to be an injustice to La mar and an injury to this great In dustry in this section ofthe valley. This committee is as follows: N. N. McLean, C. C. Goodale, T. J. Sayler. A. E. Bent and J. M. Williams. The campaign If made here will he so short that it will make very litle difference from a business stand point, but It is the unanimous senti ment of the community that when we have a large portion of the beets and have been at aheavy expense to Introduce the industry in this sec tion, we are entitled to have them ground at home.

Catchers Caught .Marshall Crooj of Rocky Ford and nu assistant were captured yestar day by a harness thief whom they were chasing. He disarmed them, made iutm handcuff themselves to gether. and then made them drive him II miles out into the coun ry, unhitch their horse and wait nut.il dark. He then took the horse and left them to walk hone. Of course they insist ihat it was Henry Starr. The outlaw was evidently a Social ist, for while he had the two men lying on the ground he gave them a long harangue on Socialism. He also went through Croop’s pockets and Look what money he had, but did not take John’s money saying: “You have to work for your money and you need every cent you can get, but you ought to read up on Socia lism andget some sense Into that nut of yours.” Either one of the Lamar banks has more deposits and assetß than Rocky Ford’s three banks put together. Times have been somewhat dull here, but it Is evident that we are well off compared with some others. 20 YEARS AGO Not«« from Lamar Register of July 28, 1888 A state republican convention was called by H.
