The democratic party of Chey enne county has long labored under the disadvantage of having no medium through which it might reach the people on im portant questions that are con tinually arising, and with which the people generally are unac quainted and seldom advised, and the further disadvantage of be ing unable to get its political ex pressions admitted to the columns of the republican press of the county. This is the most important period in the history of the dem ocratic party in Cheyenne county and the columns of this paper will be open to the admission of anything on any question i n which the general interests of the whole people are to be served. The most important questions in our political history are to come before the people this year, and this paper will keep you posted on what is happening aiong po litical lines in county, state and nation, and will, without drawing distinct party lines, give space to such readable matter and such questions as will more nearly benefit the people as a whole. It will be a medium through which the rights of any citizen may find expression, and will be propa gated, prosecuted and financed on the principles of equal rights to all and special privilege to none. In the dissemination of the di rect primary law and those legal questions that are to come be fore the people now, on short notice, and on which many of \ Boarders and Roomers i l -WiLITTED t ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ |THE ALBANY HOTEL? t W.

The great question before the people today is, do the people want to rule, now that they have a chance, or do they want the corporations and the money power to rule them. At the coming election, next November, you will have a chance to decide by your vote at the polls, as to vs hether you want to rule the money plutocrats and predatory corporations by laws of your own initiation, or you want them to rule you. If you decide that they are to rule you, vote the republican ticket. If you decide to rule them, vote the democratic ticket. It is up to you, and your future happiness will depend on the position you will take at the poles when you vote. The East er n Colorado Times is democratic in belief, practice and principle, but it is going to be run just as much for the interest of the republican, socialist, prohibition, social labor in everything and on every ques tion pertaining to the public good, without regard to party, place or power. It is being pro moted for the purpose of boost ing Cheyenne county into the respectable ranks of the demo cratic party, of raising the price ot its real estate, its cattle, horses, sheep and farm products until the mention of Cheyenne county in the states east of us will be the means of bringing our prices of farm lands to where they properly belong, $35 to SSO per acre and this paper will never stop boosting its real estate values so long as there is anyone in Cheyenne county to be bene fitted by it.

A popular actress who was In Cleve land last week was telling how she got rid of her fa—er, embonpoint. "After I started,” she said, ”1 occa sionally Indulged myself 'lust this once.’ 1 found I was not making any progress. Anyone who wants to get thin must beware of the 'lust this once' habit." The possession of too mush physi cal substance Is a real source of mis ery to some people, especially those of the gentler and lovelier sex, and often it Is caused and maintained by the habit she mentions. In fact, "]ust this once” Is the source of half the miseries, failures and wrecks of hu man kind. A bank teller gets a tip on the stock market. He sees a chance to make several thousand dollars by the in vestment of a few hundred. He is not possessed of the required'sum. The temptation comes to take it from the bank’s money and return it a little later when he has realized # on tb<s deal. He says to himself: “Just this once.” If ho does not at once get a Arm grip on himself, he falls. The owner of an unseaworthy vessel, greedy for gain, sends It forth again to battle with tempests, “jußt this •nee.” No port ever sees It more. With Its captain and crew It lies fathoms deep until that time when the sea shall give up its dead. And widows and orphans mourn on the land. and know not' where to look for succor. "Just this once" Is the devil's whis per. Once heeded, the portals leading to the under world have been entered, its persuasive power has filled peni tentiaries, hospitals and Insane asy lums. It has put crepe over the faces of women and sorrow In their hearts. It has bowed down the gray heads of fathers and mothers to their graves. He who learns to know what "Just once" really means and put Its smil ing, Insidious Invitation behind him has mastered one of the life's most vital lessons.—Cleveland I-eader. ARE NOT REAL ENGAGEMENTS Young Ensign Explained His Affairs With Ten Other Girls Were “Sham Skirmishes.” Apparently love Is not always blind, nor do the ears after much whispering of undying love and nil that always become deaf—at least, not (f there la any sincerity In the plea made* by a wlhsome young woman beneath one of the weeping willow trees on the campus at the Philadelphia navy yard. Beside her, with bis arms around her, was a young ensign. He w'as a handsome young fellow and one that might easily be guilty of all that she accused him. He had paused for a moment. In a description of the paradise that await ed the young wife of an officer In the service of his country; he had painted the brilliant future In store for him self and which must have looked very "good” to her; their faces had grad ually approached until they were very, very close, when suddenly the lass with the dusky hair and the melting eyes sat upright. "No," she said, "1 don't think I ought to believe you at nil. What about those ten girls you were engaged to last year?" “Ah," said he, "those, dear, were not engagements; they were Just, ah—er, sham skirmishes, you see.” —Philadel- phia Times. ?? • • -n,., Women In Holland Prisons. There are now less than 200 women lu the prisons of Holland, according to Dr. Simon von der Aa. who for 60 years has been the chief of adminis tration of prisons In that country. "During my administration three prisons for women have been closed lor lack of Inmates," declared Dr. von der Aa. “There are two reasons for this decrease of criminal women. One Is the growth of social work. There are societies without number not only to rescue the fallen but to help the poor and suffering. The other reason Is simply the fact that women aro al lowed to work and support them selves honorably. I am convinced that the Industrial freedom of women Is keeping them out of prison In Hol land."

S. supreme court has upheld the Missouri anti-trust laws and affirmed the decision of the supreme court of that state in ousting the Standard Oil Co., of Indiana, and its subsidiary corporations, the Republic Oil Co., and the Waters-Pierce Oil Co., from doing business in Mis souri. The $50,000 fines imposed upon each company by the Mis souri courts were also affirmed. The suit was the biggest trust busting attempt so far undertak en by the State of Missouri under its anti-trust laws. Taylor and the 3 Year Law Senator William E. Borah, of Idaho, paid great praise to Con gressman E. T. Taylor in an in terview at Washington last Sun day. It was in connection with the rapid passage of the Three Years Homestead Bill through the house in spite of the opposition of the Interior Department which does not desire to see the bill Gasoline Stoves Twelve Reasons why you should use a DETROIT VAPOR 1 It is absolutely SAFE 2 It requires NO generating H It is ready for use ns soon as lighted 4 It burns the gas DIRECT from supply pipe, therefore no chnuoe for explosion 5 It burns more nir nnd less gasoline than others <■> It will burn ANY GRADE of gusoline 7 It burns a PURE BLUE FLAME from start to tini^Ar"^ 8 It is free from sot and smoke f'* 0 It is the most DURABLE burner mndo J 10 There is nothing to get out of order in the, burner 11 It is perfectly reliable at all times 12 It will also burn alcohol, the coming fuel.

Senator Borah said: "The friends of the meas ure in the house managed it Vritb remarkable ability. They were" active and vigilant in Congressman Taylor, who Fad charge of the bill as acting chair man of the Public Lands Com mittee, managed the measure with gratifying tact and judg ment. Too much credit can not* be given to Taylor and his friends.” The bill is now in the hands of a conference committee, of the Senate and the House and there is every indication that it will soon become a law, stripped of all of the objectionable feat ures which the interior depart ment essayed to have inserted among its provisions.
