McCarthy, of Duluth, Minn., father of Walter F. Mc- Carthy, cashier of the Traders State Bank, is here this week in company with President P. J.: Lyons of the Cheyenne County' Development Co. They came' out to attend the stockholders meeting of the company, Tuesday and incidentally brought several land buyers with them who were favorably impressed with the company's extensive wheat acre-1 age, and who will probably be- j come resident tax-payers of our, county in the near future. Me- : Carthy and Lyons are certainly I advertising our real estate, and they are getting results. Who Got the City's Money. For the last two months we have been trying to get Mayor Cain to have his finance com mittee make a financial state ment to the tax-payers of the manner in which the revenue of the city has been spent, but to no purpose. No word of information have the people had on this subject If the city revenue has been hon estly spent, why are the people refused this statement the lato directs they shall have. If this money has been honestly appro priated for the payment of just debts honestly incurred by the City, why do you refuse to do what you swore that you would do, when you took your oath of office. A Boon to Homesteaders. Taft last Thursday signed the three-year homestead bill per mitting entrymen on public lands to prove their claims in three in stead of live years; allowing five months’ absence from a claim each year and reducing the acres to be cultivated on large claims from eight/ to forty acres. The pen used was given to Rep resentative Taylor of Colorado. The bill is designed to so liber alize the homestead laws as to check the immigration of Ameri can farmers to Canada. This law is a boon to the home steaders of this section and is 1 greatly appreciated by our people generally. Copies of this law will be printed by the govern ment and sent out shortly so that we may know the full text of it Big Hail Storm and Rain. The biggest hail storm that ever visited this town came in | from the northeast about eight o’clock Wednesday evening and when it had finished there was perhaps three inches on the level and drifts knee deep in places, . Hundreds of window lights were broken out and stores and homes' were flooded. The hail in size i was no larger than a quarter but it came with tremendous force. Trees were stripped of their fo | liage and gardens were ruined. I Very little hail fell outside of the 1 j town limits. The rain only ex- J | tended about six miles north and ( about five miles west, but east of us and south the rain was pretty general. In places where the hail drifted here in town it didn’t melt all day Thursday. At the experiment station, 1 35-100 inch of rain is reported. Very little hail fell at the experiment sta tion just a mile out of town. Dealers in glass did a big bus iness Thursday morning and our. j people were busy fixing windows. 1 PUBLIC AUCTIONEER W. K.

ADDRESS, Arapahoe phon « 146-3 Colorado Democratic (Campaign Fund. We are in receipt of a letter from Hon, M. A.

When you are approached by your supposed friends and solicited by them to run for office, and they tell you that you are the logical candidate of your party and they will back you at the primary, and that through their in fluence you will be nominated and af terward elected, you want to look them square in the face and feel their pulse. They are telling you a lie. Take into consideration the business in which your friend so interested in you is engaged and see if you, can’t find the reason he is so anxious to have you run is that it will benefit him in some way, directly or indirectly. Don’t be mis-lead by an attitude or pretended interest in you, when it comes from people, and especially those in business that have never sought your advice on political mat ters and who never before approached you on any proposition where it would require any assistance on their part to do you any good. It is easy enough for you to determine whether these overtures for your benefit are made in good faith or by design. If they so licit you to run for office when you know that you are not well enough acquainted to make a suc cessful campaign, and when you know J. F. Me Carthy J. p. Peterson President W. R.

Phone 0. too, that there are other men in your party much stronger than yourself with the party, of broader experience and much better acquainted through out the county, you can put it down as proof positive that their interest in you is purely mercenary. They know you haven’t the ghost of a show; they simply want to get you sore at the party when you are defeat ed for the nomination, in the belief that you will make a fool of yourself and play into their hands by bolting your own ticket at the election, is the very outcome of your candidacy they looked forward to when they whispered to you in a low sweet voice that ypu would make a good race and they and their friends would all sup port you. > What kind of business is the man in who wants you to believe against your own judgement that with their assist ance you can easily be elected. Is he some one that you owe? Then his in terest is mercenary. Is he a merchant that sells goods to tlm county? Then he wants to bribe you. Is he a banker? Then he wants to placate you and sub sidise your office and your manhood, your integrity and your freedom. Is he a saloon keeper? Then he wants to control you with whiskey and dis credit you in the eyes of the people of all parties. Is he a curb-stone politi cal harpy? Then you are being led to the altar of sacrifice as a burnt offer ing to appease the avarice and design of a gang of boodlers that see nothing of interest in you except what they can turn to their own benefits, regardless of whatever sacrifices of honor or principle it calls on you to make. Is he a would-be politician? Then turn your back on him and all of his prop ositions; you are being made a fool of, and in such a sugar-coated way that you fall into their mill and are ground into a pulp, which they are going to use for tHemselves later on. There are some men in business who are so ignorant of the principles of their party, and so utterly ignorant on political questions in general that they solicit a man in one party to be come a candidate in another, and the poor fool is gulled into the belief that they are his friends and want to see him successful, when they only want to use him for a mat to wipe their feet.
