MAY 25, 1910.
Organized Yesterday by the Vote
of the People.
The election for the new district
was held yesterday and In the three
divisions there were 38 votes cast
out of a possible 48 or 50. Every
vote cast was in favor of the dis
trict and it is therefore carried and
me district will be formally or
ganized as soon as the commission
ers meet and canvass the vote.
For directors Division No. 1 will
be represented by J. E. Newsom and
Division No. 3 Dy Thomas F. Bell,
in Division No. 2 mere is a tie be
tween V. Z. Haven and H. F. Deck
er, which will have to bo settled by
lot unless the official canvass shall
change the result.
The formation of this district
means the beginning of active work
on the promotion of this great Irri
gation enterprTse, which Is of vast
material promise to both Prowers
county and I.amar. The canal will
take its water supply from the
Mammoth reservoir on the Purga
toJre river and from tbe flood wa
ter of the Arkansas when the pres
ent canals are supplied.
It is to be so constructed that
It can safely carry water in the
winter months and the company has
filings on reservoirs north of Lamai
in which 80,000 acre feet of water
can be stored each winter.
Over 65,000 acres of land are
now either deeded lands in the
district or contracted for and then
are over 25,000 acres of state land
and desert claims that can be wa
tered by the canal. More than half
of this great body of land Is tribu
tary to Lamar, and can be brought

Hon. A. E. Bent, president and
general manager of the Purgatoin
development tx>., is here and In
forms us that he has the greatest
faith In the district and ballev
that It will appeal more strongly
to capital than any that has been
undertaken in the state. He expects
to use every endeavor to push the
promotion of the enterprise.
Once More. Mr. Taylor.
The sedulous care with which
the lion. Edward T. Taylor, cob
greasman-at-iarge from Colorado,
guards the interests of his constitu
ents may be illustrated by a pass
age from the Congressional Uecoid
Oi May 16. We quote verbatim
irom the Record:
“The first business on the Un
animous Consent calendar was the
bill (H K. 24012) granting certain
public lauds to the stale of Colo
rado for the use of the State Agri
culture 1 college, for agriculture, for
estry and other purposes.
“The clerk read the bill, as fol
lows: Providing for the sale to
the state at 91.25 per acre of 160 U
acres of land ‘for experimental, ed
ucational auu ainured uses.'
“The Speaker. Is there objec
"sr. biayueu: Mr. Speaker, re
serving the right to object, 1 woulu
like to have some word oi explana
tion with reference to this hill.
“The Speaker: Who has charge
of this bin 7
“Mr. Mann: Mr. Speaker, the
gentleman from Colorado tMr. Tay
lor) reported the bUL"
And Mr. Menu made tne explana
tion which was expected from the
member In charge of the hill, and
it went through.
Uf course »t would grieve Mr.
Taylor to assert or Imply that he
was not a “real friend" of this
hill; but when a bill la called, at
tne opportune ume for Its passage
by unanimous consent, and the mem
her in charge of It la absent and
sot ready to take advantage of the
opportunity, there Is surely reason
lor Inquiry on the part of his con
stituents. If Mr. Mann, in the ab
asnea of the gentleman In charge
of the bill (and apparently also of
hotlh the other gentlemen from
Colorado) had not kindly made
4h# necessary explanation, the bill
would not have been passed, and
Uf now forestry acnooi oi tne Ag
ricultural college would have had to
wait probably another year or two.

ORDER STORAGE COAL
TO OUR PATRONS:
The storage season is now on for all kinds of coal. From
our experience of last year we find that if we and our cus
tomers had not stored coal very liberally there would have
been quite a shortage here, as the mines are unabel to sup
ply euough during the cold months. Besides, the coal la
better, having less slack In It where It la handled but once
out of the cars. You also save on the price. We advise ev
eryone to store coal that can, whether they live In tow . 4 or
in the country. Bills for storage coal are due and payable
