WUey has fil ed a complaint before the dlatrict court o( Bent county aguiusl the Fori By on Canal Co. to eiiforce their old time contract for the ap pointment of two diroctora of the latter coiupuny. We don’t know how much else they ask aa the com plaint la too voluminous for us to read—in fact it is so vulurn. inous that the plaintiff aaka refief from his own complaint to • the exteut of not being forced to publish the same. It is feared even the Equit able Blfe couldn’t stand for that. Any Method Satisfactory Some who brag that they did not vote for Taft four yeaia ago and that they will not vote for him this year if nominated are trylug to tell Prowers county republicans how they shuLl couduut their pri maries. This Is a matter to be de cided for the republican party by republicans. The method does nut uiattermuch to real republicans Just so the selecting is done by the republicans. It is only tbe class who want to break into the party Just long enough to dictate its nominees and then get out be fore the election whose voice will not be given a hearing. NO CITY ELECTION laSiiar Map 11a\e to Forego Its l’sual Spring Five for All The announcement was made the first of the week that unt’er the construction of the law by the city’s attorney there would be no election this spring, but tbe pres ent officials would hold over for another year. The change from a town government to a city of the second class being given as the cause. This immediately start ed a big legal discussion and probably there never were so many legal lights in the city be fore. Some say It’s law, and some say it isn’t, and some Just want to scrap anyway. The ins say it would cause endless llttig&tion if an election was held, and the outs says it will cause endlesser litiga tion if it Isn’t. The Register never furnishes legal opinions. but our candid horse seinse opinion, from watch ing the avidity with which our citizens are signing the resubmis sion petition, is that w e don’t blame the drys from avoiding an election if possible. People can’t be blamed for side-stpeping an avalanche If they can, and it is up to the legal fraternity to prove whether they oan. The statute regarding second class cities provides that elections shall only be held in the odd years, and wtiile some other towns have reorganized In even years as Bamar has done, it seems some have held elections the first year to fill the vacsjicies for one year and some have not. As no litigattlon has ever been started over the matter there are no de cisions by the courts on the point at issue. Take your choice, suid stick to it, but there is no need to get warm under the col lar as everybody’s term expires next year and there will be of fices enough so we all can run. Beet Prizes Tbe American Beet Sugar com pany have In mind the offering of prizes pertaining to the rais ing of sugar beets for the coming season, as in former years. It lias planned to distribute the sum of 11150 in prizes. The company bus asked the several farmers clubs of the county to submit sugges tions covering points for which these prizes should be awarded, and many worthy and helpful sugges tions are being made. Manager Gerecke of the Bamar factory is arranging a Joint meeting of the several committees in the near future, at which time the matter of prizes and the •basis will be thor oughly discussed. This meeting will be held at the Bamar factory of-* flee, probably a week from this coining Saturday. Mr. Gerecke has taken very kind ly to the m-atter of offering prizes to the members of the boys’ clubs that are now being organized by. agriculturists Deverman and Ray. Tiiese prizes will of course be In addition to those offered the grow-* ers, as ex explained above. The boys’ club organized in connection with the Enterprise farmers’ club is taking more than passing interest in the rais ing of small tracts of sugar beets for the season of 1912. This club already possesses the follow ing boys as members: George Gill, Stanley Oook. Joe Ralston, Harry Tracy, Glen Dodd, Isacc Elienberger James Elienberger, Oscar Oxley, Percy Esgar, Herbert E«gar, Ar thur Esgar, John Cline. Frank Ray and Carl Peterson. The ages of these boys run from 13 to 16 years, and they are plan ing to organize a club having a lull quota of officers and contmlf eel about March 2d. Tho par ents of these boys readily see the business education, as well as the farm training that wLH accure irorn such an organization. Agri culturist Deverman when seen recently reports much interest In the May valley district along the llzves of the boys’ club in that locality. Work of the Association The Prowers County Teachers’ association will hold its annual zneetLng in Bamar Saturday, Febru uary 2 4-th at the Bamar high school. All meetings are open to the public and tbexe Is no charge for admis sion. While the subjects to be discus sed pertain to school matters they will be given in a practical way and will be interesting to persons not in the beaching profession. At the section meetings in the morning chlldrt n’s classes from tbe Ba mar schools will give demonstra tion lessons of the daily work in music. AA the afternoon meeting there will also be classes in cal isthenics. and games showing the use of the Victrola or graphophone for school purposes. The Umar high school will furnish the music for the afternoon and evening meeta ings, and there will be a general exhibit of work in art and other subjects from all grades In the Lamar schools. Owing to the interest now being given two subjects In school work namely, industrial education and moral training, the program centers around these topics, and the as sociation ha* been fortunate in se curing speakers of ability and ex perience in these lines of work. Mrs. Venard, who speaks at the afternoon meeting, supervises the school maintained by the Daniels and Fisher Dry Goodß company in Denver for their employees of *ohool ag e . This school has at tracted much atttentlon from both eduucational and business institu tions and Mrs. Venard’s talk will be timely and interesting to all classes. Mr. Mooney, the other speaker of the afternoon, holds the position of public school visitor at the Colo rado State Teachers’ college, and from his position and experience is well qualified to epeak to either a school audiem-e or a general one. Mrs. Venard will speak on char acter building and Mr. Mooney on essentials in teaching. Dr. Lory, president of the state agricultur al college will give an address on the growth of Industrial education. Dr. Lory’s practical ideas of the duties of his school to the citi zens of the state are well known and should make his uppearaiue very popular in an agricultural com munlty.
