It may he interesting to give for what it is worth
some infoimalion volunteered by John N. Baldwin,
of Iowa, who has been here this week trying to fix
up tho rnilroad tax case for tho Union Pacific in whose
department he is retained. In n loquacious mood
Judge Baldwin do-clarcd:
"We are not bothering about tho governorship
any more. Thai's been settled. Wo had a confer
ence u day or two ago, and WE ALL AGREED
ON MICKEY AS OUR MAN."
against tho people of Nebraska is by voting for William H.
Thompson for governor, John N. Lyman for treasurer, aud
Charles Q. DoFrancc for state Auditor.
Klbction day is a little loss than three weeks off. Have
vott decided what ticket you afo going-to vote? la it for a
governor who is affectionately and patronizingly called
"Our Man" by tho railroads operating in the state, who
will be their subset vicnt tool if elected? Is it for a don
gressmnn who will through patty loyalty or blindness vote
for any measure desired to bo passed by gojd gamblqrs-and
treasury looters, such as the Infamous Fowler bill "which
comes Up for passage at tho next session of congress? ' Is
it for a party that in this state has been conjured by rail
roads and great corporations to permit them tp bo taxed at
one half the valuation at which you, Mr. Voter, uro taxed?
It is going to make the taxes much lighter on tho small prop
erty holders of the state it tho big corporations owning
property in the state are taxed as heavily proportionally as
tho rank and file of the voters in tho slate, Moreover, it is
but just that they should be. It ought not to be a hard
matter for any thinking man to decide what man as govern
or, what man as congressman, what party to be in control
of tho state it will bo to his interest to vote for.
The Times seems to be considerably agitated over tho
Herald's telling tho truth in regard to Colonel Mosby's
recall. It is still anxious to have the people believe that
democrats got Mosby out hero to pull down republican
ranchmen's fences. In doing so it tries to turn the Her
ald's assertion that it was well acquainted with the inside
of tho whole deal as proof of its statement. Tho Herald
repeats tho assertion: We arc well acquainted with the in
side of the whole deal. We know tho whole republican
.scheme. We took the trouble to acquaint our selves with
it. Unliko the Times, we do not publish our surmises or
desires for facts. That the Times admits it does when it
naively states it was not."on to tho inside of the deal?!' If
it was not, why did it publish that string of falshoods wo
reprinted with proof of their falsity last week? It spoke as
if it were aware of nil tho facts. Any one who had taken
the trouble to investigate, as tho Herald did, knew that was
not tho case that the Times was either maliciously lvine
or printing what it wished were true as the truth; but that
docs not alter the fact that theTimesmadeit appear that it
knew whereof it spoke that it might thereby mislead those
who had not been watching the affair. Mosby's recall and
its attendant circumstances, his correspondence with the
Nebraska senators and western ranchmon are public prop
erty, .known alike to democrat and republican. The Hkr
ald simply exerted itself enough to find out tho truth,
which the Times cither did not, or seeing it would be detri
mental to admit it, pretends not to know, while the former
desires tho people to know the truth and told it to them .
The spirit and letter of the Times in the article regarding
Mosby's recall is false as the facts show. Its separating a
part of a sentence in the Herald's article from the remain
der and by so doing enabling itself to give it a meaning
wholly foreign to what it had, read "in the, sentence and
article as a whole, and which the writer intended it to have,
is a base sort of falsification that no honorable man would
resort to. Prominent republicans of this city and county
are disgusted with tho Times' method of misrepresenting
Mosby's recall and endeavoring o falsify the Herald's
publication of the truth regarding it. They know that the
making a reputation for untruthfulness and unreliability on
the part of a republican paper is an injury to their part3'
and they resent it.

IT COMES AT LAST.
The republicans of Dawes county failed to file any
certificate of nomination, hence all the candidates will have
to run by petition. It iV reported that tho candidate for
county attorney is so disgusted that he has declined to run.
nd then we. aro surprised that the "brilliant" Frank Cur
Md overlook such a matter.

Geo. W. Loer.
Tho Herald does not deem it necessary to publish a
biography either civil or military of Geo. W, Loer.
He is too well known for such a thing to be necessary.
His official record as commissioner from tho second
district f6r the past three years is one to which every
fusionist can point to with pride. His every act will bear
the closest investigation and will show that he has always
had the interests ot his constituents at heart. Mr. Loer
was renominated without any solicitation or efforts on his
part, his party believing that he has made a record which
entitles him to a second term, Mr. Loer will s'ucreod him
self by a larger majority than he had three yeaia ago and
that was over a hundred.
According to a careful estimate made by "The Omaha
Bee," the leading republican newspaper in Nebraska, the
railroads of this slate are shirking taxes to the amount of
more than one million dollars each year, and what the
railroads ought to pay is being paid by the plain citizensof
Nebraska. The railroads aro assessed by the governor,
the auditor, and the treasurer, and the republican candi
dates for these offices are opposed to any increase in rail
road taxes. The only way you can remedy this great wrong
AnthTrust Law Enforced Onty by Democrats.
Tho only federal law ever passed for the regulation of
trusts was passed by the republican congress.' Don't over
look that fact. The democrats subsequently had control
of congress, as well as of the presidency, but not o.nly did
they fail to pass anti-trust laws through tlieir congress but
their president and attorney-general failed to execute the
laws that actually were on the statute books, jilaced othcre
by a republican congress. Crawford Tribune.
If the Tribune refers to the anti-trust law of iSgo, the
Herald is pleased to givo the information that so far as it
has been able to learn the only enforcement of that law
ever made was made by democrats. In the only democratic
administration since tho law was enacted Attorney-General
Garland enforced the law against tho coal cdmbine in
Tennessee so effectually that it was broken up" and certain
railroad combines in the west hict a like fate at his hands.
Subsequently he instructed United States Attorney James
Bible at Chattanooga, Tenn., to indictand enjoin the Ad-
dyston pipe trust at that place and it was' broken, up. At
that time it had been a mooted question whether the law
was constitutional. The court held tha$uit was., Judge
Peckham, a democrat, speaking for the United States
supreme court, decided that congress could prohibit inter
state combines which tend to restrain interstate cdmmerce
and that this act did prohibit and outlaw Such combines or
trusts. So you see, the only enforcement of .this law was
made by the democrats. It has been in force ever since
its passage and ever since Cleveland's administration the
republicans have held the reins of government. During
that time tho trusts have multiplied and waxed great. Why
have not tho republican administrators of government ap
plied their own remedy for them?
The anti-trust law of 1890 seemed to be working well
enough during the democratic adminstration that trusts
could be checked by it aud no further laws relating to the
subject seemed needed at that time. Since then it has be
come the conviction of the democrats that in addition to
the provisions of that law, trust-controlled products should
be pfaced on the free list and that whatever other legisla
tion is .needed for the control of them should be enacted.
Moreover, had democrats remained in power and accom
plished free trade as they had long advocated there, would
now be no trusts to bo dealt with. Don't overlook the fact
that the democrats did enforce the anti-trust law and with
effect, also. . Don't overlook the fact that while the law has
been continuously in force and republicans continuously in
power since the great combining of capital has been going
on that they have failed to enforce it, or to make any 'at
tempt to enforce it. ? ' .

The Times Lets Drop Its Long Promised
Some time ago the Herald was in
formed that Harve was mad and was go
ing to bring some "terrible charges"
against Commissioner Loer before elec
tion. The first of the Beries began last
week but he happened to get the wrong
man. J. A. Lore, a prominent republican
of Wright precinct, was the victim. (Now
voter, don't get confused when you go to
cast your ballot November 4th. Mr. J. A.
Lore may be a candidate for road over
seer or justice of the peace but he has
never aspired for a county office, and is
not a candidate for commissioner, so don't
vote for him for that office.) But this J
week we are pleased to observe he has
looked up the official directory and ascer
tained the names of the county commis
sioner s and named the right man lor once.
Well, he decides "not to attack the per
sonal character" of Mr. Loer and pro
poses only to show up his ' official rec
ord." He says:

but a duty It owes tho republicun party

lie says Mr. Loer's claims have been

taxpayers should know; and then he does
not state where those "hundreds of dollars

says " not one dollar went into the pock

definite information in regard to this.
The next charce is that Mr. Loer " is
WEAK and allowed himself to be used as
a tool." Now wouldn't that kill you? The
idea of Harvo accusing anyone of being
weak and used as a tool! And then he
says all Loer had to do was to vote NO
with Mr. Duncan. He forgot to state that
the only time ho desired Mr. Loer to vote
NO with Mr. Duncan was a certain time
last winter in a little matter in which he
Harve) was interested. But how is it,
Harve, that you fail to mention Commis
sioner Cahas name? Oh, that's so. He's
not a candidate this fall. Well, the next
is that $ias present to Smsyer and as Smy
ser has replied to that himself in this
Issue, we will pass the matter and take up
" Old George" the janitor who has been
"robbing" the county of $30 a month.
We asked Commissioner Duncan for in
formation on this question and he
informed us that George was being
kept, at the poor farm at an expense
of $15,00 per month besides his clothes.
Mr. Duncan stated that the county was'
paying out money for planting trees and
caring for the courthouse grounds and that
it was a saving to the county to keep
flenrge there as there should be a ;anitor
anyway and George has certainly earned
his salay. There are not a half dozen
counties in the state that do not employ a
janitor and very fow of them pay less than
$40 per month. It costs Box Butte less
than $15. Mr. Duncan also stated that he
believed Mr. Loer and Caha to be good
conscientious men, just such a man as the
Herald believes Mr. Duncan to be. Come
again, Harve, but when you do remember
that the Herald will state in plain lan
guage why you would criticise Mr. Loer,
the proposition you made him, and other
things that may not set well on your weak
stomach. Good day. ,

The Triple B Cattle Co. delivered a
top bunch of steers last Friday to
Fred T. Rew of Silver City, IoA'a.
The bunch consisted of 100 head White
faces about 75 being two-year-olds
and tipped the beam at J,ti5 pounds
each. Mr. Rew is a prominent Here
ford breeder and bought these cattle
at a fancy price, expecting to top the
market with them next year.
E. G, Bellwood, a member of the
Tripple B Cattle Co., arrived iu the
city from Avery, Neb., Wednesday
morning and will visit his parents Mr.
and Mrs. James Belwood till Monday.
The report has been circulated by a
newspaper whose stock in trade is false
hood and slander, that Charles H. Tully,
the fusion candidate for representative of
this district, made the statement that he
"was a democrat and did not want populist
votes." No one who knows Mr. Tully
would belive that he ever made such a
statement but for the imformation ot those
who are not acquainted with the man we
publish the following letter written by him
in September 1897, when he was nominat
ed by the democrats for sheriff in Sheri
dan county. The letter is furnished us by
the Rushville Standard and it does not ap
pear like Mr, Tully was opposed to the
populists or fusion. If he had remained
on the ticket it meant the election of the
republican candidate. Here is the letter:
"To the Public: Having been solicited
by my friends to make the canvas for
sheriff of this county, I consented to be-'
come a candidate and have received the
nomination of my party for said office
Since entering the contest I find that for
me to make the race it places my friends
regardless of political affiliations in a posi
tion not at all enviable while the contest is
being waged between the ' common people
on one side and the money power on the
other. I consider it of the greatest impor
tance that there be nothing said or done
that will in any way tend to divide the
forces of which I am a party. I therefore
take this opportunity of thanking my
friends for their efforts in my behalf
especially, and respectfully Withdraw from
the canvas with the end in view of uniting
our forces that we may go "to the ' polls'
shoulder to shoulder to triumph in a cause
we believe is right. Respectfully,
Charles H. Tully."
