ANOTiiiiit niicr-vr ki'.m'iii.irax.
Ucglstcr of the Land Office Harrington
Is to lietulu Ills Job,
A republican, nnd as good a man as in
habits Box Butte county, barring his de
votion to an arrogant, imperialistic and
monarchial political party a staunch
friend and patron of the Herald, mind
you has said that he is making a nolo,
keeping an account, of every mention by
the Herald of a decent republican, with
the foolish idea that after awhilo we will
have them all enumerated under the head
of "decent republicans." Well, this article
concerns another political follower of
Roosevelt and Hanna who richly merits
the distinction of being classified among
"decent republicans." And they are none
too numerous in this neck o' the woods, or
elsewhere. This time the man the
Herald has singled out for the distinction
is F. M. Dorrington. Some folks prefix
the name with the word "captain," and
others with "honorable" but the Herald
will call him plain "Mr." Dorrington.
Nothing of public interest has happened
in a long time that pleased the Herald so
immensely as the announcement that the
combined efforts of a number of would-be
"silk-stocking" gentry to retire F. M,
Dorrington from his position as register of
the Alliance land office and install in his
stead a man whose character from any
standpoint he may be considered cannot
approach the present incumbent of that
office. In a letter under dale of June 30,
1902, Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock
notified Senator Millard that the president
had instructed him to say that the appoint
ment of J. R. VanBoskirk would not be
made, but that in vtew of the splendid re
cord of Mr. Dorrington, as shown by the
official reports he will be retained in his
present position. Had one of the Oregon's
big explosive shells fallen in their midst it
could not have caused more consternation
in the camp of the "silk stockings" than
did this announcement it fairly took their
breath away. But the Hkrai.d, has not
a tear to shed nor a simgle word of sym
pathy to express for the ridiculous position
in which they find themselves. It would
like to pat the rough rider on the back,
though, just once; and when he shows
himself in Alliance this fall perhaps the
Herald will doit.
After all, the termination of the struggle
for supremacy in connection with the Alli
ance land office is only another proof that
"murder will out," so to speak. F. M. Dor
rington has been a veritable watchdog in
the interests of the government in this land
district; and while every boni fide settler
has found in him a friend and advisor, he
has proven himself capable to protect the
government against many frauds. For in
stance, the action of this land office rela
tive to the wholesale encumbering of our
public domain with reservoir filings pre
vented much litigation and saved hundreds
of dollars to the people of this dirtrict. In
fact, the record made during Mr. Dorring
ton's entire administration of the affairs of
the Alliance land office must have given
him a splendid standing at Washington,
and doubtless inspired the president to
reappoint him. The Herald does not
agree with Mr. Dorrington, politically
and it is proud of the fact but it does
know, and is not afraid to say what it
knows that he is oneof the ablest and
most efficient land officers in Nebraska.
A man who has been a homesteader, knows
his trials and tribulations and made his
final proof upon the land. He knows a
settler's wants and knows how to assist him,
and does do it. A lawyer of ability, a
genial friend, a much respected citizen
and a pioneer of Nebraska.
President Roosevelt, the interior depart
ment and Senators Millard and Deitrich
arc to be ccngratulatcd upon the happy
termination of the registership of this of
fice. And here are the Herald's congratu
lations, gentlemen. For once in your lives
if you never do it again you've done
the square thing. How do you feel, Mr.
Mugwump? We are talking to you down
there in the opera house cellar. The laugh
is on you. and every little schoolboy in
town knows it. All the chicken-pie you'll
get out of this deal would not appease the
appetite of an English sparrow.
At Crawford, on the Fourth, the Alliance-Burlington
ball team again demon
strated their superiority over the Tenth
cavalry fellows, fairly wiping up the earth
with them. The decendants of Ham
hadn't a ghost of a show from start to finish
In the afternoon, the Alliance boys, weary
from the fatigue o'f the forenoon's work,
and perhaps a little overconfident, know
ing that they had only second-raters to
contend with, were defeated by the Ctaw
ford team badly defeated. They didn't
or couldn't play ball at all. But their
defeat is not charged up against them.
Their friends and admirers are still con
fident that under equally favorable circum
stances they can tcst any ball team, with
the exception, perhaps, of three," in the
state of Nebraska.

An I'Rty C.Iiiii'kc.
Difficulties over range are becoming ns
frequent in Box Butte county as pistol
practice parties used to be in New Mexico
over' irrigation. With the distinction that
there they were wont to kill, and hero they
only knock down and drag out. But the
methods of the New Mcxicoitos were prefer
able to those resorted to by the Box Butte
ites. Or perhaps wo ought to say New
Muxicans and Box Buttenns- it wouldn't
grate so harshly upon the cars of would
be over-nice folks. The latest range row
occurcd about twelve miles north of Alli
ance, nnd the participants were a young
man by the name of Clayton Worley nnd
Mrs. M, Hood. Worley is charged with
knocking Mrs. Hood oil her horse. Sheriff
Reed arrested Worley late Monday evening.
Tuesday morning he was arraigned beforu
County Judge Spacht, upon the charge of
assault and battery, who, upon motion of
consul for accused, postponed the hearing
until August 8. Tho Herald will refrain
from further comment until the facts in the
case nre known. It dislikes to lcleive that
Clayton Worley would so far forget him
self as to be guilty of such brutality and
cowardice. It's an ugly charge, to say
the least of it.
Attractive nnd Appropriate.
Among all the Fourth of July decorations
in tho city none were so attractive to us as
that of Marcus F rankle, proprietor of the
"Famous Clothing House." The front
windows of this establishment presented a
picturu that was not only unusually attract
ive, but acted as an inspiration to all lovers
of our country's history. In the north
window appeared a facsimile of Die original
copy of the Declaration of Independence,
draped in the national colors. In the same
window was a beautiful color picture of
that greatest of all great battles in the
world's history, Gettysburg. The south
window was but little less conspicuously
adorned. There were large paintings
showing prominent Union and Confederate
generals, mounted on their war horses as
they appeared during that memorable and
fratricidal struggle from 'fii to '65. Also
pictures of our principal battleships in
review. Mr. Franklo was the recipient
of frequent congratulations on account of
the taste and appropriateness displayed in
the decorations, and large crouds gathered
in front of the windows to admire them.
The idea of the display originated with
"Mf. Cogswell, the trimmer at the Famous.

The rumor that B. F. Lockwood it Co.
have a "car of groceries" at the depot is
quite amusing; but we will tell you what
we have got and that is a car of fine furni

day, so as to have it ready for pudlic in
Also, we have another car of furniture
to be shipped on the 17th of this month
and a half car coming between these ship
ments. This, with the stock on hand,
will make the largest stock of furniture
this side of Omaha. All these shipments
were bought before the rise and will en
able us to compete with eastern markets,

Miss Letha, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
R. T. Watson, of this city, returned home
on the morning of the Fourth from St.
Johns, Michigan, where she has been at
tending school for the last year. Miss
Watson was graduated with the highest
honors from the St. Johns High School
June 19. She is a talented young lady and
until the last year was a pupil in the Alli
ance High school. Miss Watson was the
recipient of a large number of presents,
presented her by classmates and friends in
The young people of the LT. P. church

the date and don't fail to attend.
Miss Mae McDermott was graduated
from St. Mary's convent in Omaha June
27, and the Alliance people who witnessed
the graduation exercises describe them as
unusually interesting and express delight
with the manner in which Miss Mae car
ried out her part of the program. She re
turned to her home in this city Saturday
to remain a couple of months and will then
go away to study music.
In their effort to wrest the laurels from
the Alliance-Burlington base ball team,
last Sunday, the newly organized city ag
gregation made a lamentable failure. If
the wind has not been entirely taken out
of their sails, and they will practice daily
for a score of years, perhaps the new team
might interest the Burlington boys. But
even then it would be doubtful. The score
was sixteen to five.
