Through an oversight the nomination of
I E. Tash as postmaster of Alliance was
notpublished last week. However, Herald
readers were advised several weeks ago
that such a possibility existed. The presi
dent seut Mr. Tash's nomination to the
senate on the 6th inst., and since there is
no opposition to his appointment confirma
tion will doubtless be made soon,
Tash informs ushe has received a
ber of applications for positions
office and that he has decided upon the ap
pointment of D. A. Foley for deputy and
Miis Jessie Sweeney as clerk. The Her
ald congratulates Mr. Tash and we be
lieve that since a change was decided upon
that his appointment will give general
satisfaction to the patrons of the office.
The Herald has never had occasion to
register a kick against Postmaster Mont
gomery or his assistants. They were
obliging and always treated us fairly and
that's all we could ask. We do not know
what Mr. Montgomery's future plans are
but whatever they may be his Alliance
friends wish him well.
We also desire to congratulate W, F.
Walker who is to succeed A. M. Miller as
postmaster at Ilemingford. Mr. Walker's
good nature will allow the registration of
the usual number of kicks which falls to
the lot of the aerage postmaster in small
towns but he's got 'oni all this time -every
patron of the office signod his petition'
Mr. Walker has had charge of the Hem
ingford mill for the writer during the last
year and a half and we found him lacking
in only one way- he wouldu.t vote the
Then too, since our friend Colonel
Ketcham found the duties of postmaster
and editor of the Crawford Tribune, the
leading republican paper on the B, & M.,
was too much for him and lesigned from

to see him succeeded by Lee Van Voorhis

A chapter of the Order of Railway Con
ductors was organized in this city Wednes
day afternoon, Box Butte Division, No.
427, with a membership of thirty-six. The
organization was effected by Grand Junior
Conductor L. E. Sheppard of Camdin, N.
J., assisted by members of the order from
Lincoln and other points on the Burling
ton. The following officers for the new
chapter were elected-
Chief Conductor, M. E. Johnson; Assist
ant Conductor, J.N. Andrews; Secretary
and Treasurer, L, King; Senior Conductor,
J. H. Cantlin; Junior Conductor, W. G.
Eubank; Inside Sentinel, W. E, Coutant;
Outside Sentinel, S. Granger' Trustees.
D. H. Briggs, H. H Hough. M. L.
Wright, S. Granger, representative to
in connection wait the business ol or
ganizing, the most elaborate social event
of the season occured, it being a banquet
and ball given in celebration of the order
on Wednesday evening. Those having
the affair in charge left nothing undone
that could add to the pleasure of their
guests from a distance as well ns their
home friends. Following are the various
Arrangements L. King, D. II. Brings,

The banquet was given at the Hotel

Hon. F. M. Dorrington was toastmnster
and in his happy manner presided in that
capacity to the entertainment and pleasure
of all present. Just as the banqueters were
seated divine blessing was invoked by
Captain W. R. Akers. Speeches were
made by L. E. Sheppard, Captain
W. R Akers, Captain Dorrington, Dr.
Knight and others. We regret that lack of
space prevents a fuller writeup of the
speeches, as so many contained bright,
witty and wise things and were so much
enjoyed by those who heard them.
About nine o'clock those who had at
tended the banquet and upwards of two
hundred others betook themselves to the
Phelan opera house where elaborate pre
parations for the ball had been made.
Draperies and othet decorations had trans
formed it into a beautiful ball room and
the music provided for the occasion was
indeed excellent, it being furnished by an
orchestra from the Tenth cavalry at Fort
Robinson. It was probably the most
largely attended ball ever given in Alli
ance. About one hundred and fifty cou
ples participated in the grand march which
was led by Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kendlen
of McCook. To an onlooker it presented
a scene of beauty and animation.
The order begins its existence in Alli
ance with the brightest outlook, socially
and in all other repects, and its many
friends who shared their lavish hospitality
wish for them the best the future can give.
Among the visitors from abroad were
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kendlen, Mr. and
Mrs. II. A. Beal, McCook, Mr. and Mrs
M. E. Sheppard, L. B. Lyman, Lincoln;
Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Birdsall, Mr. and Mrs.
C A. Turney. Deadwood.

county since the days of their babyhood.
Good wishes follow them to their new
surroundings Chariton, (la.) Hearld.

DIFFERS FROM LACEY BILL
Amount tolte Leased Cut Down and Terms
CluitiRcil -Will llrst He Presented
to the Nebraska Legislature.
Members of the Nebraska delegation at
Washington, including Senator Dietrich
and Representatives Shallenbcrger, Bur
kctt, Stark and Mercer, held a conference
Tuesday with the secretary of the interior
relative to the Nebraska land leasing bill.
The new bill is about the same as the
Laccy bill except in the amount of land
that may be leased and in the matter of
rentals. A copy of it will be submitted to
the state legislature for approval or disap
proval before it shall be presented to
The text of the bill is as follows
Be it enacted, etc.: That the secretary
of the interior is authorized in his discre
tion to lease for live stock grazing purpos
es, for such advance annual rental, upon
terms, with such restrictions, in such
quantities, not exceeding twenty sections
in any single lease, anu for such time not
exceeding a period of ten ears, as to him
shall seem reasonable, such of the public
lands within the state of Nebraska as arc
in t'leir natural condition -aluablo only
for live stock grazing purposes nnd aro not
capable of irrigation. Not more than one
lease shall be, directly or indirectly, made
to or held by the same person, aiid no
lease shnll bo transferable, without the ap
proval of the secretary of the interior A
far ns possible bona fide settlers nnd own
ers of private lands shall have a prefer
ence in leasing the adjoining public Innds,
and where two or more such homestead
settlors or private owners are desirious of
leaning the snme adjoining lands, the latter
shall be equitably apportioned among
them So long as any lessee fully com
plies with the terms of his lease, but not
beyond the term for which the lease is
I given, he may enclose the land embraced
in the lease and shall be entitled to the ex
clusive use tnereoi ior iivcsiock grazing
purposes, but the lands embraced in any
lease shall continue to be subject to settle
ment and acquisition by qualified persons
who, in good faith, go upon such lands for
the purpose of making actual settlement
and maintaining actual residence thereup
on, as is required by .sections 2289, 2290,
2291, 304 and 2307 of the revised statutes
of the United States.
Every lessee and tranferee of any lease
shall, as a condition precedent to obtain
ing or holding such lease or transfer, be
required to igree in writing that he will
not, during the continuance of the lease in
any mauner, directly or indirectly, violate
any of the provisions of the act of con
gress, entitled "An act to prevent un
lawful occupancy of the lands," approved
February 25, 1885.
The rentals of lands leased hereunder
after deducting the expense of administrat
ing this act, shall be annually disposed of
under the direction of the secretary of the
interior as follows:
One-fourth shall be paid to the state of
Nebraska; one-fourth shall be paid to the
county in which the leased land lies, and
one-half shall be credited in the treasury
of the United States for the reclamation
fund established under an act of congress
entitled, An act appropriating the re
ceipts from the sale and disposal of public
lands in certain states and teritories to the
construction of irrigation works for the re
clamation of arid lands," approved June
The purpose of this act is to provide for
the economic use of public lands in the
state of Nebraska which are adapted only
to grazing purposes, to encourage the im
provement, use and protection of the grass
thereon and to determine by actual experi
ment and observation whether a system of
leasing public lands of this character may
be justly and advantageously inaugurated

Not he. He'd really been an' done an'
gone an' got married and he told them he'd
