Speer addiessed a letter to Senator Napier in which he stated that he believed an extra session of tlie assembly should be called for tlie pur nose of selecting a United States senator. He also said that in bis opinion all men who were candidates before the regu lar session should be eliminated and he further said that if the finances of the state were In such shape that the expense of the ex* tra could not he met, then the Deimx ratio state organization could well afford to pay all the costs rather than have the present bi ennial term end without Democracy having elected a United Btates sen ator. The letter of Mr. Speer Is Issued for two purposes. First: To place his position before the people of the state and second, to place Gov ernor Shafroth in a position where If he does not call the extra, the Speer wing of Democracy <an claitg that the governor is responsible for no senator having been chosen Mayor Speer concludes his letter as follows: "During the regular' session of tlie legislature I had the honor of receiving as many votes as all the other eandldates combined, and was always ready to go into a party caucus and abide by Its decision, but no one was elected, and I would now suggest that you elimi nate all the candidates who were before the regular session and elect some new man. If you cannot gel a special session, let those who an responsible for Its failure U> meet assume the responsibility. A special session could speed ily settle the senatorial question No member of the legislature would receive any additional salary, and (he tost could be kept down to a normal amount. Our party organ ization could well afford to pa> all «ost rather than have no ac tion taken in this matter. Very truly yours, (Slg.) R. W. Speer. " The work of ralsiug $10,000.00 with which to malutaiu the farm ex tension departments at the agricul tural college is progressing with more success than those bock of the movement at first anticipated The Great Western Sugar company heads the list with a cash contribu tion of SIOO for each of their nine factories. The stockmen of the state have guaranteed SSOO. The real estate exchanges and business mens' associations of a number of towns have endorsed the move ment. In addition. Chairman Mc- Donald of the Republican party and Bradley of the Democratic party have each given the committee in ■ barge of the work authority to -ay that they endorse the proposi tion and that they hope the total sum will be realized. Plans are about completed for the committee to visit Che various sections of the date and hold conferences with J those who represent the agricul tural interests of those sections. I So far as it is generally known I this is the first time that the rea ' idents of the state have taken it ' upon themselves to raise funds with which to maintain a state institution, when the state itself is ihort of funds for that purpose. State Auditor M. A. Leddy was visited by a committee representing | tjhe men who are back of the move ment to raise the funds. This com mil tee explained why the mill levy collections could not be used to coutiuue this experimental work and Mr. Leddy withdrew ull ob jections. Muyor Speer suggests that if an ex tar session is held lor the pur pose of electing a United States stiuutor. Democracy owes it to the state to pay the additional expense or that extra session. Under the same reasoning does not the Dem ocracy owe the state about $200,- 000? Since that party came into power in Colorado the legislature lias been in session 287 days at an approximate cost of SI,OOO per day. No one will claim that It ■ could not have performed the work 1 in 87 days. When Democracy re i'uiids the amount that it really owes then will the people be will ing to admit of her genulnl re ! urination. NO A DJECTIVE CAN BE ATTACH ED Either a Moil Is it PriHertiomlst mill n Republicsji nr He In Something Very Dliffeismt Front That Congressman Charles K. Fuller of Belvldere was the host to the editors and friends at one o'clock, and one of the finest Briggs House banquets »un served. After the dinner of course, there were speeches and toasts, etc. but none more Important thsn that giv en by Mr. Fuller himself. John W. For no I of Btroatnr. post master and editor of the Free Press, presided He Is president of the district edi torial association, ami an excellent presiding officer He is one of tlie most strenuous "straight" re publican writers and editors in the Htate. a consistent Fuller man. and in every way qualified to take the dignified part of presiding at surli an august body of republicans When he Introduced Congressman Fuller he Introduced him both n the guest and the host of the edi torial gang, and Mr. Fuller respond ed by talking twenty minutes on re publicanism as It exists today in Illinois and in his district. For many weeks there has been a con stant agitation going the rounds of the press on tlie part of those who would like to see Mr. Fuller ootae out as an avowed candidate fot governor of Illinois. We hellev< there could be no more cl&rifyint effect on Illinois politics than the announcement of his candidacy. However, it is patent to all polltlo il observers that such a step would *e a great sacrifbe on Mr. Fuller's part, with the uncertainty of win ning, owing to the grrat number of factions In the state. He feels, and >f course, his party feels that he :• n and is doing a great deal for this district and for Illinois in his present place in oongress, where he is the leading member of such Im portant committees as Invalid Pen sions, Insular Affairs and the Militia. When Mr. Fuller warmed tap to hlmseLf he talked plainly to his editorial and postmaster friends on the ®ubje«t of " Republicanism." According to the Fuller doctrine, with which every one present agreed, there is no such thing as "Progressive Republicanism," “In surgent Republicanism." ‘‘Standpat ism." and the thousand and one other isms and factions. No party on earth ever showed such a pro gressive spirit as the Republican party sLnce the days of Lincoln and lx>gan a/nd Grant and McKinley; no political organization ever Inaug urated the number of reforms and progressive and stable measures for a country as has the Republican party. During one season of Dem ocratic rule more harm was done the country, more men were out of work, more soup houses were op erating thn/n ever before or sin<e in the history of the United State**. When it comes to attaching an ad jective to the word "Republican," declared Mr. Fuller, there is no adjective that can be attached and strengthen the appellation in the least. The word Republican stands for progress, reform, prosperity and a protective t-aiff, and there is uoth- Inng further that can be said to add any lustre or meaning to the word, if all parts of the state and nation could be as enthusiastic in the following of their leader as the Republican editors of this district were in following Congressman Ful ler there would be little room for sueli factionalism and radicalism us | marks the party Loduy.—Hiukly (111.) Review. BUREAU OF EDUCATION PLACES U. OF C. IN CLASS 1 Flnssifi* jrtioii Kumml V|Min Pre iwntiii) m> of Graduate* for Advanced Work According to the following state ment which appeared in the Col orado School Journal, the Burea of Education lias put the Univers ity of Colorado in class 1 in a classification of institutions of higher learning which was recent ly made. "The United States Bureau of Kducutlou has Just published a preliminary elussificatiou of Amer ican colleges and unlversltites bas ed upon tlie the preparedness of the gruduutes in arts for advanced work In our largest graduate schools. The classification has been made by Kendric Charles Babcock, a specialist in higher -ducat lon In the Bureau of Educa tion. Ills Judgment is bawd oh personal visitation of many insti tutions and data secured from a large number of educational ex perts. lie baa considered about 350 Institutions <»f college or uni-! versify standing and in ‘('lass 1’ I be give* 60 institutions. Of these only four—the Universities of Cali fornia. Colorado, Washington and Lelnnd Stanford are situated in the Rocky Mountain and Pactfl ■ coast regions. Graduates of institutions in ‘Class 1* would ordinarily be able he says, totake the master’s de gree at any of the large graduates schools In one year after receiving the bachelor's degree.” Denver University is placed in "(’lass 2" which requires that it is r-ccessary to work two extra yoarr for the master’s degree, and Colorado College is classed between I and 2 which means that more tnun one year’#* extra work is re" •ulred. Republican Pint form The following resolutions adopt ed unanimously by the republican state editorial association of Illi nois would make a good enough platform for any genuine republi can: “We unqualifiedly approve the candidacy of Mr. William Taft for reelectlon and heartily indorse both our national and sta e admin-j Ist rations. “Wo adhere to the Republican principles of protection and favor a scientific revision of the tariff which contemplates the maintenan of the American rate of wages and the American standard of living We are unalterably opposed to ialistlc doctrines embodied in tl* : Initlatiive, referendum and recal and denounce these measures as destructive of Republican govern ment. "We recognize that the state wide primary law is not productive of the result intended; that it is j a rich candidate's advantage, not a poor one’s opportunity; that it is ) NUMBER 25. a Luxation burden on the people and Lu its operation nullllfles party harmony and substitutes plu rality rule for mujority rule. "Therefore, we recommend a sys tem of conveuliou of delegates chos cu by the people for all nomina tions higher than county offices." School Notes The eutire school leaching force of Lamar with the exception ot Coach llawkins is in Denver this week iu attendiUioe at the sessions ol the Blato • Teachers' association.

A good program has been arrang ed far and refreshments will be served, all is asked is your time and attention. This Is the place that you get something for nothing. Lamar Wallops Rocky Ford Leaving their wives and children at home, the husky Lamar football players journeyed up to Rocky Ford Saturday and (leaned up the local team to a score of 33 to 0. The game was one sided from the be ginning. The Rocky Ford high school boys never had a chance with the bearded men they had to run up against. The Lamar players weighed about fifty pounds to a man more than the local players and some of them have been play ing football for years. A good crowd saw part of the game, but most of them left before the slaughter was over.—Rocky Ford Tribute.
