ADDRESS, Arapahoe Phoneys Colorado Homesteaders Too Eager to Make Final Proof. When a number of newspapers published what was purported to be a copy of the new homestead law week before Jast, this news paper thought it had been slight ed, and so stated in our last week’s issue. We have learned since from P. O. Hcdlund regis ter of the U. S. land office in Hugo, that the three year law has not been sent out from Washington as yet and the land office has not been advised as to the contents of this new home stead bill. A great many homesteaders have rushed in to take advantage of this new law who, perhaps, are not in a position to comply with its requirements. As soon as this law is published, a copy will be sent to each homesteader. In the meantime it would be well for the homesteader to make haste slowly and wait until you get reliable and authentic infor mation before you go too far. Promenade 300 Feet Long. The furnishings which have been placed in the new fire-proof annex of the Albany Hotel in Denver, as well as the rooms with bath in the main building, are the Louis XVI style, all be ing finished in neat, light enamel colorings, many being provided with twin beds.

Not because any man or set of men wish us to be; not because our father’s were, but because we have waited until we’re tired expecting the republican and democratic parties to do some thing for the good of the people. But they only legislate in favor of the capitalist and allow that capitalist oligarchy to coin human lives into dividends to further their own selfish ends. Believe me, we flat-footedly de nounce this capitalist system (which both old parties stand for) as incom petent, corrupt, rotten in county, state and U. S. government and the source of unspeakable misery and suffering. Crime, boodling and everything that has a tendency to drag good men and women down, goes along hand in hand with this corrupt system, and in the name of freedom we condemn wage slavery. We condemn the system of exploitation' and we believe that our Divine Master never intended that one class should enslave another. And in the name of humanity we demand social rights to all and privileges to none. We believe in private owner ship of home, and as much prosperity as one can manage without exploiting or taking other’s opportunities from them. We believe in government own ership of all means of producing so cially used articles. These are just a few of the many good things socialists advocate. We kindly ask all to make a thorough study of all platforms and past records and let’s vote according to our best judgement at the coming election It is our intention now to get out a ticket in this county and work for the principals of the social-' ist party as laid down in our platform and not for the spoils of the office, as is generally the incentive. So, onward, comrades. Let’s work faithfully, let’s give our helping hand to a cause that is inspiring men and women to - action all over the world. J. H. Owen.
