Railroad A Surety
Contract Entered into with Kennedy & So?by which
the Altus & Roswell Railroad is Secured.
A contract was signed up with Mr. KENNEDY this
week which without doubt of defalcation insures
Lubbock a railroad. It is now up to Lubbock and
non-resident land owners of Lubbock county to
respond to the ìbonus callî and that liberally.
Donít bring up flimsy excuses tending to exert
and influence disastrous to this great
enterprise. Every man should put his shoulder to
the wheel and put in a word of encouragement for
it if you havenít a dollar to give. On with the
road in spite of every opposition. Every man
should carry his part of the burden.
Pull togather with united effort and the road
is assured. The only men of worth to a town or
community are those who forget their selfish ends
long enough and are liberal enough in their ideas
to encourage every public and private enterprise,
who are at all times ready with brain and purse
to land things. Our town may just as well
prepare for its funeral as to be indifferent to
those great enterprise in its midst.
We know that men who live in Lubbock and
Lubbock county can see far enough ahead to see
money placed judiciously in this railroad
proposition will multiply a hundred fold in fine
appreciation of their property. Donít be a
nocker. Be hopeful and talk for it. If you are
for the best interest of your country you will go
into this light boldly and bravely, and we will
build the road over every obstacle or selfish
impediment that exists. More than half of the
land of Lubbock county belongs to non-resident
people, and for that reason half of the financial
burden with fall on them. We hope that a
multifarious liberality will seize these people
as we cannot accomplish this great task without
their hearty co operation.

S. B. BURNETT of Fort Worth dropped into the

demanded to know if the Amarillo people were
taking an interest and if they were enthusiastic
for this great industry. He said if the people
only knew and could appreciate the value the
packing house to Amarillo, they would be hustling
to beat the band. He concluded by asking what
would Fort Worth be without her packing house.

building on Polk Street, the latter cabled his
subscription of $1,000 to the project from London

Buy Lubbock County Land.
R. M. WALSH, a real estate dealer of Dallas,
yesterday closed a land deal, amounting to
$42,000, covering 8,400 acres of land in Lubbock
County, which was sold by the owner, T. E.
DEWITT, to the Chicago Southwestern Land and
Colonization Company of Chicago, Ill.
The owner, Mr. DEWITT, collected the land in
small lots, until he became posessed of nearly
10,000 acres. He made the sale of the 8,400
acres at $5 an acre, retaining the balance, about
1,600 acres, although he says he could have sold
that tract with the rest at the same price. Mr.
DEWITT was in Dallas in connection with the deal,
as was P. L. MONAGAN, representing the
colonization company. Mr. DEWITT said yesterday
that the company got a bargain, and that he would
not have sold the land under any conditions had
he not been offered an exceptional investment for
the money which he secured.
ìWhile I believe,î he said ìthat the value of
the land will double in the next two or three
years still I had an openping for about $40,000,
where I believe it will treble in three years
time, and therefore I took the cash.î
The land company will cut up the tract in

The Panhandle is destined to become in the

now taking place and their incomparable climate,
fertile soil and opportunities for stock raising
combined with farming, it offers the most
attractive inducement, in my judgement that can

Praise For Panhandle
Dairying, Hog Raising, Poultry Producing and
Sugar Beet Culture ñ More Experimental Stations
In a recent article E. A. PAFFARTH the well
known Panhandle booster, has much to say that is
pertinent to this section. The article in part
is as follows: As per various articles that I
and others have written and published thru The
Forth Worth Telegram and Stockman Journal and
other papers on the question of dairying, hog
growing and poultry producing by feeding the skim
milk to hogs and poultry and sheep raising to eat
weeds and cultivating of sugar beets as an
additional feed crop, as well as an additional
industry. You may say that all of the aforesaid
five industries would be camparatively new in
Texas and are five of the most profitable
industries in the United States and are well
adapted to the entire state of Texas, and
especially to the Panhandle of Texas. I say
especially to the Panhandle because of the great
diversity of feed crops that can be grown in the
Panhandle of Texas and great tonnage per acre of
feed stuff that can be grown in the Panhandle of
s and great tonnage per acre of feed stuff that
can be grown in the Panhandle of Texas, and
because of the great number of acres that one
manís labor can cultivate in the Panhandle of
Texas, and because of the climatic conditions of
the Panhandle of Texas, and because good water
can be had at a reasonable depth any where in the
Panhandle of Texas. For the above reasons the
Panhandle is best adapted to the aforesaid
industries and is the most attractive part of
Texas to the people who have made Illinois,
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska and Ohio great.
In fact there is no part of the United States
today that has a better class of population than
the Panhandle of Texas. They are as a rule
natives of the United States, educated people,
young and ambitious and full of energy, who have
some money and credit. The class of population
that means success to any of their undertakings
and means greatness for any locality in which
Of course I have demonstrated heretofore the
foregoing fact and the fact that the Panhandle of
Texas naturally always was in its wild state a
live stock country. The smooth part of it used
to be full of antelope, buffalo and wild horses.
The broken part of the country used to be full of
quail, deer and wild turkey. The sand hill part
of the country used to be full of prairie
chickens. Since the country became civilized we
find the highest bred herds of range cattle in
America. The calves bred in the Amarillo country
have gone into the feed lots of the central
states of America in competion with native cattle
that you may say are the thorobreds and have
taken premiums at the various fairs at Chicago,
Kansas City, St. Louis and Denver Colo. These
premiums were obtained not because the judges
were partial to that section of the country, but
because the cattle were so good that the judges
were compelled to award the premiums to cattle
bred in the Panhandle of Texas, and!
the aforesaid cattle came off of the L. S.
ranch, the X. I. T. ranch and J. A. ranch and the
Mill Iron ranch and the Herefod bulls bred by
John HUDSON of Canyon City took the premiums at
Denver, Colo., fair last winter.
ìThere is no better sheep packeries of Fort
Worth, Texas. There is no better country in
which to breed and develop horses and mules than
in the Panhandle of Texas, and it is also a fine
ìI refer to the above to prove beyond a
reasonable doubt the wonderful possibilities of
the Panhandle of Texas and the balance of Texas
is a very close second to the Panhandle in the
possibility of deversified farming and
deversified stock raising, fruit growing,
dairying, etc., and in order to familiarize the
citizenship of Texas with these wonderful
possibilities and of the country and age in which
they live in the things that are best adapted and
most profitable in their respective localities is
why I have in my various articles advocated the
building of seven or eight experiment stations
with dairying farms attached to each to be
maintained if possible by the state and national
governments which would save the necessity of the
individual experimenting and wasteing of time and
money by giving a practical education to our
citizenship, which would double and treble the
earning capacity in dollars and cents of every
individual citizen, as well as every acre of land
uld enable the people of this generation to get
some of the benefits and fruits of their own
labor, to the glory of the entire state and
nation. Of course, the people would say this
takes money, but no better investment can
possibly be made of the peopleís money than to
make liberal appropriations to be used by the
agricultural department of Texas and by the
Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas than
to build and maintain the aforesaid experiment
stations with dairying demonstration farms
attached to each. Our next legislature should be
liberal in appropriating all funds that are
necessary to successfully and creditably carry on
all of these departments to the honor and credit
of all the people of this state and nation.
Parents Take Notice.
Lubbock Public school will open Aug. 31st,
1908, at 9 a. m. On that day pupils will be
classified and lessons assigned for work to be in
on Tuesday Sept. 1st. Let all pupils bring their

Some of the more Important Planks as Adopted by
the Democratic Convention at San Antonio.
Following is some of the more important planks
of the Democratic platform as adopted at San
Antonio: 1. Declaring for submission of a
prohibition amendment without pledging the party
either for or against the same.
2. Recommending a law to provide under state
control and supervision a guaranty for deposits
in the state banks of Texas.
3. Recommending legislation to protect rice
growers against overcharges by canal companies
for water they use in irrigating their crops and
protecting oil operators from overcharges by pipe
4. Recomending a revision of the civil and
criminal laws to get a speedier and more just
administration of justice in the courts of Texas.
5. Endorsing the national Democratic nominees.
6. Endorsing the official acts of Governor
CAMPBELL and the Thirtieth legislature.
The following is the majority plank on
submission adopted by the convention upon a vote
of 448 against 225 cast for the minority plank
offered by the anti-submissionists.
We demand the submission by the Thirty-first
legislature of the state of Texas of a
constitutional amendment to the people of Texas
fos their adoption or rejection, prohibition
within the state of Texas the manufacture, sale,
gift, exchange and intrastate shipment of
spirituous, vinous and malt liquors, medicated
bitters capable of producing intoxication, except
for medicinal and sacramental use.
ìWe recommend that prohibition amendment
demanded by the recent primary election be
submitted to all qualified voters at a special
election to be held in 1909.
We declare that at such election a vote for or
against the amendment shall not be considered a
test of demrcracy, as it is not the purpose of
this conventeon to commit the Democratic party
for or against state prohibition.
The Widowís Gratitude
A newly made widow of Geary county sent this
card of thanks to the Republic for publication:
ìI desire to thank my friends and neighbors
most heartily in this manner for the united aid

of death on Friday last while eating breakfast.
To the friends and all who contributed so
willingly toward making the last moment and

Subject: Alves/Williamson/Michie/Harris Connection?
Since John Williamson lived near George Alves in the below 1719 New Kent
Co. Va land patent, I was wondering if anyone has any early Williamson
connections to their Harris line.
My best candidate for a maiden name of my Thomas Harris' wife, Sabra, is
the Sabary Williamson (b 1732 King Wm Parish, Goochland), dau of John
Williamson/Sara. Sabra's name was written Saborey in a 1763 deed.
Since she & husband Thomas named a dau, Elizabeth, I'm thinking maybe her
name was a contraction of the name Elizabeth--Elizabeth has many
different pet names--depending on whether Scottish or English.
Isabella/Sabella are two English versions of Elizabeth. Don't know if I
can squeeze the name Sabary (Saborey, Sabra) as a version of Elizabeth
but am posting the following as a speculation that she was a dau of the
below John Williamson.
The Elizabeth Michie named below in John Williamson's 1767/69 will as a
natural daughter of Sarah could be connected to John Mechie who witnessed
a 1743 John Williamson (then wife, Prudence Cox), of St. Paul's Parish
Hanover selling 200a in St. Martins Par., Louisa Co. It seems I read
that there was an Elizabeth Michie speculated as a wife of a William

Subject: Muncie locations/businesses
In the 1893 directory in the location column, is that the place of business
or where they lived?
Charles D. BEEMER worked at Bowles & Beemer. At 410 W. Main. Does anyone
know what that was?
Frank BEEMER was a theatrical manage boarding at

Subject: Brenda - Muncie locations/businesses
In the 1891-92 directory there was a druggist listed at 104 S. Walnut
by the name of Bowles and Beemer.
In the resident section of the same directory, Homer E. Bowles and
Charles D. Beemer are listed as proprietors of People's drug store,
dealers in drugs, medicines, and drug sundries at 104 South Walnut.
That might have been below the two office floors in the Patterson
Block - I'll have to check to see exactly how they're numbered there
but the intersection of Main and Walnut, I believe, is the beginning
point for addresses downtown. There were probably more than one
storefront in the Patterson Bldg, street level. Someone please
correct me if I'm wrong about that.
Homer Bowles is listed as living at 310 E. Washington.
Charles D. Beemer is shown living at 410 West Main.
The SE corner of Main and Walnut is the Patterson Block and is still
there. That building has never been anything but an office building.
Prior to that bldg, in the very early days of Muncie, there was a
tavern but that was way before the time you're talking about. All
the buildings on that corner were built by my Turner family and the
Patterson Block is named after my Pattersons.
I do see that a Frank A. Beemer (known as Skip) roomed at 120-1/2 S.
Walnut at (above?) Lockwood's Restaurant.
I do not show (1891-92 Directory) a hotel or boarding house by the
name of LaClede or one at either the location you mention or at the
Lockwood's address. The name LeCledes does sound familiar though.
I do have an old postcard of that intersection looking East on Main.
I can scan it and send to you but it will be appearing on the
Delaware County site within a day or two.
Hope this helps some.
I am researching a Bowles family in Lambton county, Ontario who seem to
have spent a lot of time living and working in the lumber industry in
Michigan. St. Clair, MI is just across the border from Sombra township
in Ontario. Would anyone have any information about Bowles in that

Critically Injured in Mill at Morse Mill Monday
A shocking accident occurred Monday morning in the mill at Morse Mill when
Clyde son of Riley WILLIAMS was caught by machinery in motion and
frightfully mangled. (This is the wording in the article.) The miller and
the owner James BITTICK, together with the day crew who were just going to
work, were standing about a large wheel where the belt needed attention. In
some way the young manís arm was caught in the belting and he was whirled
madly round and round the wheel in view of his companion (sic) who were
powerless to help him. The miller instantly rushed and shut the mill down,
but already the right was mangled so that it had to be amputated, a foot was
crushed and several ribs broken. The young man is in critical condition and
his recovery is doubtful.
