Reference readers, 889. Making a total of 10,196. Onr last year’s report showed that during the year previous there had been 2246 readers, and that 19,726 volumes had been given out, so that during the past year it will bo soon that the readers have in tUQg—ii and that more hooka have The Lamar Register been given than during the prev ious year, which la a very gratify ing indication of the interest that the people of Lamar and this vi cinity show in the Library, and that they appreciate its privileges by the increased patronage they gJve. It is a pleasure to command the work of our Librarian, Miss Maude A. Miller, whose strict attention to her duties, and the zeal with which she attends to the wants of those who patronize the Library, as well aa the neatness of the library room and the care she bestows on the books, deserving approbation of this Board and of the public which she serves so well. Miss Miller has been of great assistance in the selection of the books which have been purchased during the last year, and fan keeping them in good repair. Mr. Charles Maxwell, of the La mar Milling and Elevator company, the former president of the Board, interested himself in the collection of the subscriptions that have been set out in this report, and is de serving of commendation for his efforts in raising that amount in addition to a Liberal personal sub scription. The present mayor of Lamar, Mr. 2. M. Lee, the president of this 3onrd, as well as the present Board Trustees of the Town of Lamar, are taking the same interest in the I parking of the grounds about the Library, and it is a pleasure to state that by their efforts the grounds surrounding the Library building will soon be a beautiful park *whloh will be a fine ornament to the town. 1 think that the Board of Direc* | tors have reason to congratulate themselves upon the continued in terest and increased patronage that la being given to our Public Library. Vouchers for expenditures of books accompany this report. All of which la respectfully sub mitted. C. a GOODALE, Committee. The Primary Reason A good lie, planalbly told and well stuck to, la said to ha almost as good as tha truth, and a vary present help la lima of troubles, but there are people who prater the essentially bad and stupid false hood, even when tha truth would serve their purposes better. The extra session has now been in a chronic state of recess for about two months. The ostensible reason for keeping It in session is to pass a primary law. The Plat form Democrats, who, however, are bound by the caucus, want a direct primary. That is, they want a system of nominations that will do away with conventions, and permit the party at large to select Its own candidates. The so-called •’Machine* ’ Demo crats are not anxious to have a Primary Law at all, but if they are to have one, they want it to be in addition to the convention, so that the “machine’* can still in struct its several cogs, its Alch eles and Dillons and Tom Phillips es and fixers, for whom to count the returns. Both sets of near-statesmen have argeed on one clause, and as it la the only one they do agree on it may be said to be Important. It Is a proviso that the law shall not go into effect until AFTER the Denver election in 1912. Yet they claim “an emergency exists.” This is surely the moat brazen and im pudent lie ever invented. It is a lie that is costing the state over SI,OOO a day and which deceives no one. Take as a shining example the railroad hill, recently railroaded to the senate from the house, whirl is laying much unction to Itself for its record of accomplishment. Tha repealing clause, instead of read ing in the usual way, “All Acts or Parts x>f Acts in conflict here with are hereby repealed.” said that those “in cohflict with this •Section” are hereby repealed, which would seem to be a blanket repealing clause, repealing all pre vious repealing clauses, no matter what statute affixed to. This Is just one Idiotic sample of the sort of horse-play the Extra has been Indulging In at our expense. The truth is that the proposed primary law, unless hedged about with a number of amendments dic tated by sad experience elsewhere, might be entitled “An Act to Limit Office-Holding to Rich Man.” for that is its first effect. The amend ment to the proposed registration bill submitted by the Machine sen ators was a bare-faced attempt to give the Big Mitt oomtrol in the city of Denver. The sooner we have done with government by conspiracy, which is what • the present senate caucus means, the better for the state. The attempt to eliminate Denver from the scope of the law makes as clear as the moonday sun the aim and objects of the peanut pollticiana now enthroned in the State House. >rmzzLi tr® our -jl-sks octjxttt LAMAR.
