fOLUKI IZVDI W. R. HEARST QUITS DEMO ORATIC PARTY Monroe Doctrine) Jeopardized, J®f fdnon Repudiated, and Public- Money Waited, Editor ToUm New York Crowd New York, Oct. 30.—William Ran ,4k>lph Hearst has taken up the fight against Tammany’s candidate for mayor, in a speech at Cooper Union he announced that he was through with the democratic party, and hereafter would champion the cause of the Hearst Independence party. He declared for Mitchlel, the fusion candidate for mayor. In his speech, he aald: “At the last election 1 had hallu. cinations about the democratic party. I had been raised a demo crat. I had been taught to respect the party for Hs early achieve ments. 1 thought that perhaps it still held some lingering flame of it* former glory. “I knew that at the last election the democratic party had opportun ities for beneficial achievement as great as were ever presented to any political organisation in the history of the world, and I did not believe that any collection of human beings <ould be found on the face of the earth either with skill enough or stupidity enough to avoid those op portunities., But I made a mistake “With a mile-wide, deep-water channel to success directly in Its path. K has managed to avoid the stream and to bump the good old Ship of State over every rork and reef In the political harbor, ft has failed tgnomlnouely to carry for ward the great democratic naval program begun undeij Cleveland, and it has squandered the money available for an adequate navy io postoffices for -Podunk and custom houses for Crossroads Center. “It hu failed to fulfill Its plat form promise to protect the live# and legitimate Interests of Ameri can citisens throughout the world, and in so failing M haa ignored ev ery established democratic precedent since Jefferson humbled the Dey of Tripoli In 1904 and Madison pun. Uhed England in the War of 1812. “I Haa jeopardised the Monroe Doctrine, which Monroe, one great democratic president, so nobly enun ciated. and Cleveland, another great democratic president, so boldly and bravely upheld. “It has repudiated the reciproc ity of Jofferson. It has opened our markets to the piquets of foreign countries without having had the buslnesss sense to require reclpro. cal concessions 'of foreign markets In the Interests of the producers of our own country. “It proposes to curtail our terri torial possessions, although nearly all of the great accessions of terri tory which have made this country the powerful, important nation it is have taken place under democratic presidents. “It has proceeded so unwisely and so undemocratlcally that I feel that there Is no longer room in Its ranks for either a radical or a democrat. I have registered in the Independ ence party, and I want to see the Independence party do Its utmost to advance the cause of honest In dependence and genuine radicalism in this and every other campaiggn.'' What the Decision Means to Colo rado The decision of the state su preme court In the commission fonm of government for Denver means that the commissioners elceted this last spring shall serve their terms unmolested, that there will be free dom for the community from more charter elections for some time to come and that the city may proc##4 to bustosM. LAMAR. FROWKKB COUNTY. COLORADO. WEDNESDAY', NOV. S, 1918. Stripped of verbiage, the finding of the majority of the court means that, when *a matter of such im. portance as the adoption of a fund amental law Cora great botdy of people is decided by the people themselves, the courts will not un do the will 08 the majority by the interposition of technicalities. There was question whether the Oxd charter of Denver could be su perseded by a new* one under the guise of amendments to the old one. But the voters at the polls were given the right to determine yes or not If they did not want the amended charter they could have said,so at the election this yeai If a large number of citizen* failed to vote on the issue the fault was theirs. Courts throughout the land are giving less attention) to hair-split ting and more to the will of the people. To submit a new charter under the form of an amendment technically is wrong, and if a leg. islative body had attempted this the courts might not have been so lenient. But the whole matter went to the people’s forum for decision and the greater number who vot ed voted for the "shortest cut” to getting a charter for Denver. If the contention of the office holders, deprived of their offices on June 1 last through the new charter’s becoming affective, had >een upheld by the court, the city would have had to -undergo several elections. The losers in the suit just decided maintained that, un der the state constitution, the one way to get a new charter was through a charter convention. This would have required elections to nominate and elect delegates to such a convention and to appYSVi or disapprove of the charter so framed. While this was being done the Arnold administration would have returned to office Denver Times. TUESDAY'S ELECTIONS Progressive Party Rapidly Disap pearing Democrats Still Too Nuntcrous flow Divirted Republicans The few state and local elections on Tuesday of this week were more significant in their figures than they were In results. Most of the candidates elected were demo crats but the vote was far less than Wilson’s of last year although still sufficient.to.defeat the divided republican party. The regular re publican organization made remark able gains everywhere except In Massachusetts and there the repub lican candidate for governor had repudiated the republican platform and adopted one for himself which was not satisfactory to the party’s nters. The progressive' party showed up very weakly and Is rapidly be ing deserted by the rank' and file. There will soon be nothing left but the leaders. In New. Jersey where the vote a year ago was Wilson 188,000, Roosevelt 145,000, and *aft 88,000, the progressive candi date for governor made a hard fight and got only 40,000 votes,' the democratic candidate lost some al <(,, while the republican candidate made a gain of over 60,000. In ,’ew York the republicans lost last year by over 300,000 and came back this year and elected the state ticket over a combine of dem. ocrats and Independents, also secur ing the legislature Jn Pennsyl vania where Taft was a poor third the republican ticket swept the state with the progressive ticket running along with the socialists In Ohio where only local elections vere held the republicans regained the big cities of Cincinnati and To ledo and the progressives made no showing whatever. The big cities THE PIONEER NEWSPArt* OF PROWERS OOVNTY in Connecticut come back into the republican Hndi and in Indiana of the larger and cities the republicans earthed 19 to the pro greesives 4. liryaryland the pro. gressives made Vk> showing what ever, and even: in Massachusetts, where they did £helr best owing to irouble the republicans had with aeir candidate for governor, the gressive ticket outside of the candi date for govern# %vas a poor third. A* a whole the elections teach dat the democf#ts are a minority n the cc.untrjr %ut too many for o republican pfcrti-s.

We ara hoping to have better luck the next time. “What kind of power do you contemplate using in case the ex. pertinent is successful?" was asked. "Well, we are only several hun dred feet off the line of the Ar kansas Valley Electric Light and Power company, and It is possible we would Install electric power. However, we are at this time In vestigating the cast and results in the use of oil, and the question of power has not been decided."

Irrigation Tubes A simple device is on the mar ket which all farmers can use with profit in irrigating beets, or any other crop where row Irrigation is ppracticed. The device consists of a galvan ized iron tube about eighteen Inches long, it is squared at one end and the metal is clipped back about inches, so that one side of the square part becomes a tongue. A/ tube of this kind is placed at the head of each row by taking out a shovel full fof dirt, dropping in the. tube and replacing the dirt. The farmer can set any number of these tubes he desires in a few min utes, turn in his water and regu late the flow in each row, by press ing down or pulling up the tongue of the tube. While the water is running down one set of rows, tubes may be plac ed In another set and everything made ready for turning the water down to them. While the water is running on the second section* /the tube# in the first section ara removed and placed in the third section. The tubes can be purchas. ed of any size desired and work well in the field. E>. B. HOUSE. Colorado Agricultural college, Fort Collins. R.
