VOLUME XXIV.
Fort Lyon Canal Meeting.
The annual meeting of the atock
holders of the Fort Lyon Canal Co.
was held at Las Animas on Mon
day of this week, and as usual at
tracted a large crowd.
A special train was run from La
mar over the Arkansas Valley R.
R. leaving the union depot at La
mar about 7 o’clock in the morn
ing. Nearly 200 Prowers county
stockholders were on the train when
it reached Las Animas and return
ed during the night reaching La
mar about 6:30 Tuesday morning.
The most interesting feature of
the meeting was the annual elec
tion of a board of directors, and
after a very exciting contest the
old board was returned with the
exception of B. T. McClave. who re
fused to be a candidate again, and
who is replaced by C. B. Ray of
Wiley. The vote was as follows:
J. 8. Hasty 63,874
D. B. Nowels 59,411
D .Mclntosh 57,468
Jas. Heiser 56,168
C. B. Ray 52,340
Ray McGrath 47.606
Mr. Washburn 38.989
A new bond issue of $250,000 wat
voted by the stockholders. Of thic
$50,000 is to enlarge the intake
ditch to the reservoirs, SIOO,OOO it
to take up the floating indebtednes:
and SIOO,OOO for the Horse Creei
flume. A committee was appoint
ed to examine the secretary's re
port that a 60c per share assess
ment was necessary, and afte.
careful examination of all the fact
the committee reported that tht
company could not be successfully
managed the coming year on less
aj that assessment was voted.
On motion it was decided to hire
an expert to examine the books and
records for the past few years and
check up the same.
Mr. Wiley made a motion to em
ploy a manager to take entire
charge of the canal and be respon
sible for Its management, and he
made a very strong and business
like talk along the line of running
the canal In a genuine business
way. His motion failed by a small
margin, but It is the belief of many
that the necessity for such a san«
management will grow until it
1s adopted
Half Way Station Needed.
One of the great needs Just now
of the public and a profitable open
ing for some enterprising citizen Is
the establishment of a feeding and
lodging station on Clay creek on
the route to Two Buttes.
Hundreds of teams and driven
have to stop some place on this
route every week, and all would
gladly pay a reasonable price for
comfortable lodging for themselves
and teams. Besides this many pas
sengers are forced to stop every
day at some place on the route and
at present there is no adequate ac
commodations for them. This is
not a temporary business, but as
soon as the present work Is over
hundreds of families will move on
to these lands to farm and prove
them up, and these will make the
business continuous.
The Dowler Automobile Co. has
established regular passenger ser
vice from Lamar to Two Buttes, and
there will soon be special telephone
lines in, and these improvement*
will cause an Increase in the al
ready heavy travel along the line.
There Is a big opportunity in this
line for the man who gets in right
away.
Two Buttes Improvements.
The immense wagon trains of sup
plies leaving I.amar every day for
the south are evidence In themself
of the work going forward on the
great Two Buttes project, and the
car loads of homeseekers leaving
town nearly every day to look over
the lands always report several sales
on their return. Over a thousand
acres have been taken in the past
few days, and several car loads are
now out looking over the tract .
All the contractors are reporting
satisfactory progress on their work
In spite of the spell of real winter
weather which is so unusual in this
section. The progress at the Two
Buttes townsite is equally satisfac
tory and a number of new build
ings are going up and many sales
•of lots being made which insures
more building.
