that this will offect a considerable

Considerable fun is being poked at
Editor Bryan because he credited a well
known poem on the American flog to
Francis Drake instead of Joseph Rod
man Drake It is likely that about
three fifths of those who laugh at the
blunder didnt know before the point
was raised whether Joseph Hodman
Drake or Kill Nye was the author
nevertheless it is somewhnt astouishiug
that tho man who claims to be tho

According to tho Citizon tho people of
Tildon with but a fow oxceptlouR were
not nt all ploasod that tho town should
bo given tho notoriety resulting from
tho lato boxing contest Tho peoplo
of tho village nro qulto gouornlly moral
and tho number of persons attending
tho contest is evidence that it did not
turn out a crowd It is presumed that
of the 100 attending not more than 50
woro from Tildon and for a placo that
oan turn out from 1 000 to 1 500 people
to a Fourth of July colobratiou baso
ball game or political speech it is a
small showing Tho sports wore un
doubtedly sadly disappointed also at tho
sizo of tho Norfolk crowd Thoro wore

It is high time for tho north Platto
mombers of the legislature to got to
gether and dooido upon somo man whom
thoy will support for United States son
ator Tho difficulty at Lincoln seems
to bo that there are atogether to
many candidates and particularly does
this apply to tho situation iu the north
half of tho stato Only ono of those
men can bo elected and it is fully time
that ono was determined upon While
wo beliovo tho best interests of tho stato
would bo conserved by the olection of
Edward JRosownter to tho Uuitod
Statos souuto yet if ho cannot mako it
let tho toga fall upon some other good
mau but by all means let the toga fall
After tho north Platto members have
centralized upon somo good man then
thoywill bo in position to talk business
to tho south Platto peoplo and the farce
which has boon enacted at Lincoln day

republicanism thnt the deadlock be
broken and that quickly oven if drastio
measures have to bo adopted to do so
Editor Pont of tho Stanton Register
makes a beautiful defonse of his position
in regard to the proposed joint county
teachers institute It will undoubtedly
surprise some of his renders to learn
that investigation will provo that our
authority for items published is always
tho best obtainable The publisher of
his rival paper Editor Enos has fre
quently differed with him in this regard
and uuy ono with a scintilla of political
wisdom who has read his paper will be
inclined to doubt his statement How-
over much of Mr Pouts shortcomings
can be overlooked because of the state
ment at the beginning of his comment
that tho editor of Tub News defends
Norfolk in all cases whether right or
wrong Tuk Nbws is proud to know
that it has attained this distinction but
is inclined to speculate as to what paper
would stand up for Norfolk if it didnt
Tub News has endeavored to stand by
its home town sometimes when the work
was up hill and whou the town didnt
seem to stand by it a little bit but that
is not essential to the subject in hand
If Stantons superintendent did not
wish first class accommodations for his
teachers there are numerous small hotels
boarding houses and private families
that could take care of them comfort
ably aud just as reasonably as could be
done in Stanton If Mr Pout doubts
tbat things can bo done cheaply enough
here let him fill his basket with lunch
and apply to either Widamau or Kane
aud he can probably secure accommoda
tions that wont cost him a cent
Filipinos Will Co opcrato
Tho leaders of the federal party in the
Philippines havo served notico on the
insurgent leaders that if they do uot
come in and surrender they will raiso
a native force of volunteers to go out
aud fetch them in Thoy assure the
guerrilla chiefs that they are determined
to put a stop to brigandage and restore
law and order to the islands There is
little doubt if the well disposed peoplo of
the archipelago undertake to act in har
mony with the United States authorities
it will have a decisive moral effect
The antipathy that the federals ex
hibit against the return of the friars
will doubtless attract the support of a
great many of tho common people who
sympathize with the rebellion chiefly
because of their fear of the ultimate
vongeanco of their friar landlords
Tho proposal of General MaoArthur

Value of Rect Sugar Factories
Tho groat value of tho boot factories
to Colorado cannot bo estimated by tho
paltry dollars which tho invested capital
iu tho building nud machinery add to
tho taxnblo assets of tho stute which ns
compared to other interests directly
arising from the location of a sugar
pant iu auy community is insignificant
to moution As a safe criterion wo can
refer to Otero county which has wel
comed two factories in tho post year at
a probablo cost of two million dollars
which has been listed upon tho county
tax lists But lot us look farthor
These two refineries havo brought to tho
county at least four thousand now poo
plo who hnvo boou enrolled ns bona fido
residents Tho forming and agricultural
lauds havo been enhanced in value at
least thrco million dollars Tho busi
ness and commercial interests of the
oonuty have boen quickened by tho in
creased capital which has been placed
in circulation Tho slipshod custom of
careless agricultural methods has beon
abandoned and tho theory of intense
farming has been almost universally re
sorted to
The value of an acre of laud depends
on the amount of cash it will pay
its ownor each yoar ond its value
can not legitimately rise above
this basis Here is where the great
profit in general comes in from the es
tablishment of tho factory and the grow
ing of sugar beets Land which has
heretofore produced when cultivated in
ordinary farm crops of alfalfa and grain
from 7 to 10 per acre net to the owner
is capable of producing when properly
grown to sugar beets from 50 to 70
per acre besides giving pormanent em
ployment to at least four times the num
of laborers Hence wo can see in tho
starting of overy factory the solution of
two great problems the increase of
land values and the maintenance of a
