(From tho Omaha Bee, Juno gth, 7th Col., ist
Page. From tho staff correspondent in Lincoln.) .
It may be interesting to give for what it is worth
some information volunteered by John N. Baldwin,
of.Iowa, who has been here this week trying to fix
up tho railroad lax case for the Union Pacific in whose
department ho is retained. In a loquacious mood
Judge Baldwin de-clarcd:
"We aro not bothering about the governorship
any more. That's been settled. Wo liad a confer
ence a day or two ago, and WE ALL AGREED
ON MICKEY AS OUR MAN."
Of all tho disgusting twaddle scut out by republican
campaign managers, that to the cilcct that Mickey's elec
tion is opposed by the saloon clement is about the must dis
gusting. Thoy have not sent it only to republican news
papers for publication but have sent it to tho ministers
throughout the stato. If Mr. Mickey is opposed by the
saloon element, tho saloon clement is most ungrateful or
uninformed, for just about the time of his nomination for
governor, Mr. Mickey resigned his membership in a prohib
itionist organization in which ho was an officer and refused
consent to tho society to longer use stationery on which his
namo appeared. Now if tho saloon clement thinks it just
to oppose his election for that deed it has queer ideas in its
head. Moreover, tho saloon element cares not what politics
of Nebraska's governor is. It is only another piece of re
publican managers' clap-trap and the sending it out is an
insult to voters and especially to tho intelligence of minis
ters. Any minister of tho Gospel who could not see that it
was sent to htm as a bait is too blind to bo entrusted with
the spiritual direction of a congregation and should bo
asked to resign. ,--r.
Voters of Box Butte county, when you go to the polls
next Tuesday, remember that William Mitchell has made a
splendid official; one who has always looked after the best
interests of the county and will continue to do so. You
cannot employ a better man as county attorney. Vote for
Charlie Jeffers, the fusion candidate for coroner, is
an upright citizen and ono who is qualified to fill the office
satisfactorily. Make a cross opposite tho name' of C. W.
Jeffers. ' .
Read the record of General Barry in this issue and ask
yourself if ho is not a safe man to send to congress. The
General is not so good looking as his picture indicates, but
ho would be only for tho scars received in fighting for his
Charles H. Tul'ly, the fusion candidate for repre
sentative of the fourteenth district, is a pioneer of Sheridan
county and has a wide' acquaintance throughout northwest
Nebraska. He is a successful business man, well educated
and qualified to represent the people, especially the stock
men, of this section of the state. The letter published in
last week's issue is an index to Mr. Tully's character and
shows where he stands politically. Above all, he is honest
and liis constituents need have no fear of Charlie Tully
selling out or playing the part of a political trickster. In
Sheridan county, where pveryone knows him, he will run
several hundred' votes ahead of his ticket and right here in
Alliance he will receive a large republican vote.

A vote for Kinkaid is a vote for ship subsidies, branch
banks, asset currency, retirement of the greenbacks, a re
deemable silver dollar and the government's subserviency
to Wall street. .
A vote for "Only a Private',' Barry is a -vote for good
government, for liberty and for equality. It is a vote
against Wall Btrcet domination of the currency, against the
Fowler bill, against a trust fostering and trust protecting
tariff, and against special privilege in any form.
The Dinglcy tariff law has fostered giant trusts and
monopolies and robbed the people right and left for the
benefit of men who bought and paid for special privileges.
It stifles competition, places the burdens of government
upon shoulders least able to bear them, and robs the many
for the enrichment of the few. A vote for a republican
candidate for congress is a vote to continue this infamous
The election of a republican congress means tho enact
ment ot a ship subsidy law, the enactment of the Fowler
currency bill into law, tho increased control of government
finances by Wall street speculators and gamblers, reckless
waste of public money and continued disregard of every
principle laid down by the founders of tho republic.
A vote for a democratic or populist candidatefor con
gress is a vote against all the infamies enumerated aboyc,
and for equal rights, tariff for revenue, government control
of government finances, and destruction of trusts and
Nebraskans should lay aside their partisan prejudice
and vote ior honesty in governmental affairs, for economy
in public expenditures, and for their own interests,

The Summlna Dp.
Every dollar of bonded indebtedness of Nebraska was
paid off during the fusion administrations of Holcomb and
Poynter. During these administrations the floating indebt
edness of tho state was reduced more than 250,000. To
day Nebraska has a floating debt approximating $2, 000,000,
every dollar of which is due to republican extravagance and
It is up to Nebraska voters to decido between a debt
paying administration and debt creating administration.
Under the administrations of Holcomb and Poynter tho
state institutions were run economically and well. Tho
present administration will leave a leave a legacy of deficits,
mismanagement and ashes of burned buildings.
It is up to tho yoters' of Nebraska to choose between
Today the railroads of Nebraska aro worth 50 per cent
more than they were when Benton and Moore were in office
and formed a majority of tho state taxing board, yet tho
present republican administration lets the railroads off with
less taxes than ever before.
It is up to the voters of Nebraska to say whether they
approve of this criminal sell-out to the corporations.
The present attorney general is a weak and pliant tool
of the corporations, and the auditor is tho same kind of a
man. These men arc candidates for re-election, and it is
up to the voters of Nebraska to say whether such men aro
fit to manage the important affairs of the state. .
The republican candidate for governor was selected as
the standard bearer of the party by a coterie of railroad
bosses who met in Lincoln and made their choice ten days
before the republican stato convention met. It is up to the
voters of Nebraska to say whether they will endorse the
selection of John N. Baldwin and his political pals.
Fusion administration has resulted in economy, good
management of state institutions, payment of publio debt,
increased state credit, emancipation from corporation con
trol. Republican administration has spelled extravagance,
wanton waste of people's money, reckless management of
stato institutions, penitentiary steals, asylum scandals,
burned state institutions and corporation control of every
office iu the stato house.
It is up to the voters of Nebraska to choose the kind of
administration they prefer.
The Herald has made its fight for what it believes to
be right and for tho best interests of all the people. It is
confident of tho result. But whether the result be to its
liking or to its disliking, the Herald will continue to stand
up for Nebraska, for Box Butte county and for Alliance;
for genuine democracy, which means equal rights to all and
special privileges to none.
A Hcply That Does Not Reply.
This is Ellis' reply to S. M, Smyser's

that did not belong to him. Aside from
being a ludicrous reply after charging a
man with such a serious crime, did you
ever read such a silly conglomeration as
