Wanted Three Hundred More.
During the last two months about three bandied new
names have been enrolled on Tint Hi:kau list, which pushes its
ciiculntion up to the 1,200 matk newly as much as nil other
Alliance papois combined. But we'ie not satisfied. We want
to make it 1,500 and if people only knew what they'io missing we
would have 300 more new subscriptions inside thii ty days.
The following letters show what hueicsling loading matter,
outside of local and state news, they're missing. Besides this,
we desire to tomind you that Tun Hnvi.n is the official paper
of the county and the one in which alljofficial notices ate pub

Captain W. R. Akers of this city slays; ,
" I have read the lettor of Dr. HJrn dated November 24,
fiom Tokyo, Japan, and I am free to say that this lettor contains
more of interest, to me at least, and I believe to the general pub
lic, than any letter I have ever read written by n foreign
traveler. Most of these foreign letters arc filled with generalities
while Dr. Horn gives the details 'of life and habits of the people
and at the same time gives enough goneialities to make his sub
ject instructive and attractive."
Attorney J. E. Porter of Crnwfoid, speaking of R(v. Dr.
Horn's letters, says:.
"I am very much interested in those letters. I heard n
course of "lectures delivered by General Bailey on China and I
consider Dr. Horn able to tell more of the habits and customs of
the orient in one letter than General Bailey imparted in his
whole course of interesting lectures. His descriptions arc the
most concise, condensed and interesting I have ever read. Dr.
Horn's perceptive faculties and descriptive powers are certainly

Glad to Get The Herald.
Under date of December 29th Hon. C.
F. Coffee, the Chadron banker, and one
of the best known stockmen in the west,
writes The Herald in regard to his sub
scription. He says;
"The Herald is all right and am glad
to get it every week. I like the stand you
have taken in rdgard to the stock interests.
If this was a farming country you would
be justified in taking the opposite course:
souie of our papers are hurting themselves
by their idiotic ideas. Hope you will con

A. Triplett and Other Alllnnce Men Visit
Kcdfcrn Mine Arc Pleased With
the rintterlnR. Prospects.
On December 27, ioo2,.in company with
Dr. Allen, C.E. Pierce and A.G. Stevens I
madea trip to the Black Hills to inspect the
group of mines belonging to the Redfern
Gold Mining and Milling company. Mr.
Stevens, the principal promoter, has been
at work here Is Alliance for some time,
has laid his plans before a number of our
citizens and his representations are fully
yerified.by the appearance of the property
and, by a test in panning: also by an assay
made by Henry Schnitzel at Lead on ore I
took, to.hijn on December 29, showing the
gold to run 10.80 to a ton of. ore.
We found the "property was well tim
bered and the water supply iljr sufficient
to operate a mill of much greater capacity
than will be needed; We also found that
there has been enough work done on the
property, to -satisfy almost anyone that
there is plenty of ore near the surface to
last for many years, as a clearly defined
ledge is. in sight. The machinery at present
consists of a -jo-horse power engine and
boiler and five stamps with pump fixtures
sufficient to run the water about 150 feet
from the stream to the mill. We were
satisfied that Mr. Stevens had not over
estimated it in any particular.
After the day had been spent at the
mines, Dr. Allen and Mr, Pierce returned
and I went to Lead and Deadwood to
make the acquaintance of the officers atd
incorporators. I found them to be inter
esting gentlemen to meet, three of them
being in the employ of the Homestake Co.
at the big cyanide plant. They are men
of ability, judging by the positions they
hold, and have earned their reputations by
giving from nine to eleven years' service
with the company.
I do not mean to convey the idea that I
am a judge of mines, ores or their treat
ment and development, but from general
observation and the tests I made I am
satisfied there is a good opportunity to in
vest safely, as there are thoroughly com
petent men among the stockholders to
place the mine on a paying basis as soon
as they liao reasonable time to do so. I
will not attempt to descrioe many things
that might be of importance that came un
der our observation but hope this article
will give a fair idea of the most important
I have been asked by a number of citi
zens about samplus. I will say I have
not made any display of them as I do not
wish to excite any one or have them get
the impression that there is a big fortune
in sight in a short time.
Curd of Thanks.
We extend our thanks to the kind
neighbors and friends who so kindly assist
ed us during the serious illness and death
of our beloved husband and father, also
those who contributed the lovely flowers.

Did you ever stop to consider that out
siders usually judge a town by its newspa
pers? For instance Alliance is one of
tho best known towns In the state and one
does not have to go far to discover tho
cause. A recent issue of one of her pa
pers contained 28 columns ,pf advertising.

He was accompanied by Mrs, Porter who

also enjoyed by a lew other friends. After

United States Senator Millard returned
from Washington Tuesday. He says:
"The fence question is settled for this win
ter at least, and, in a way, for the future
as well. It is understood that the matter"
will be allowed to rest until a land-leasing
I ,aw can be passed, which will very likely
be in the near future. Such a law will
restrict the cattlemen to a certain extent
while not imposing any unnecessary hard
ships, such as tearing down their fences
would do. Besides, this is a bad time of
the year to begin tearing down fences, any
way." Colonel Mosby is in Washington
now and Senator Millard thinks that he
will be eliminated from the question by
an appointment elsewhere. 1
