Allen Turner who killed William Dunlap,
the restaurant keeper in Lead, S. D., and
was shot by young Silverdollar in this city
last week, died last night at 10 30. At Ihe
post-mortem examination held today by
Dr. Moore, coroner, Dr. Bowman and Dr.
II. 1$. Miller the bullet was found l)ing
under the left lung, having Mruck one of
vertebrae and glanced off. The lungs were
badly congested and in such condition that
the jury believed it would have caused his
death if he had not been shot The wound
was healing nicely. Turner's exposure
coming from Lead to Alliance is supposed
to bo responsible for his condition. He
expressed the wish that he would dio be
cause if he lived it probably meant death
anyhow for the crime he had committed.
Public sentiment is divided as to whether
Silverdollar was justified in shooting Tur
ner as he wasnot deputized and County At
torney Mitchell believes that it is his duty
to file a complaint against him, which he
has done and a preliminary hearing will bo
given him before Couuty Judge Spacht to
morrow morning at 9 o'clock. The body
was buried from Humphry's undertaking
rooms this afternoon. Turner's mother,
who lives at Dallas, Texas, telegraphed to
day to give him a decent burial and send

The committee on state normal school
legislation held a maeting Tuesday even
ing and framed a letter to our state sena
tor, Hon. W. C. Brown, regarding the
rumor that there is opposition here to a
junior normal in Alliance and to the pro
posed normal school legislation and stated
the position of the people to be favorable
to both House Roll No. 1, providing for
the establishment of a state normal school
west of the Sixth principal meridian, and
House Roll No. 100, providing for the es
tablishment of several junior normals in
the portion of the state west of the Sixth
principal meridian, hut that we favor let
ting House Roll No, 100 await the passage
of House Roll No. 1 aud the selection of
site for the college The needs and bene
fits of such a school are pointed out, the
greatest among which is that such a school
would secure greater permanency in the
character of the residents of the western
part of the state. Most people, or rather,
a very large per cent, of them, are out
here to make all the money they can up to
the time their children outgrow the meager
school advantages of the country and then
intend to go back cast where they can have
such advantages. Moreover, the people
of this portion of the state pay their just
proportion of taxes for the maintenance of
state institutions yet receive practically no
benefit" from any of them, which is unjust.
Enclosed with the letter they sent a copy
of the bill drafted by the people of Sheri
dan county with a petition by them which
had been sent here for approval. They
also offer to get a petition praying for the
things desired signed by from 400 to 600
people living in the territory affected if
Mr, brown thinks it would be beneficial
to the cause.
Another Republican Paper.
It is not the purpose of the editor of this
paper to obtrude his political views onto
the readers of the paper. When the man
agement changed tuo or three weeks ago
it was understood that efforts would be di
rected toward continuing its prestige as a
thoroughly reliable and up-to-date local
newspaper with the political features elim
inated. It is, however, our purpose to up
hold and encourage all citizens believing
that the present administration of Presi
dent Roosevelt is a wise and patriotic one.
These are days when people need to stand
by the president in his wisely directed ef
forts toward the progress and welfare of
all people of our nation. Grip.
The above item written by Bro. Broome
in last week's issue shows the political atti
tude of that paper henceforth and coming
as it did upon the same day as the an
nouncements in the daily press that Judge
Wilcox (our republican brethren are pleased
to call the prospective register "Phelan"
WiIco) was recommended by the two
United States senators from Nebraska for
register of the Alliance land office is, the
republicans of Alliance say, significant,
i. e , that the (lop was made to secure half of
the land office printing which will be given
by the new register and the question now in
their minds is which will be the official
republican paper of Alliancu. This "change
of heart" was expected by the Times two
years ago when its editor told what "hard
work he did to keep the Grip from going
republican" then, although he said nothing
about the "hard work" he had to keep
himself from falling headlong into the pop
ulist camp a short time previous to that.
This c6ndition of affairs is amusing to
'democrats In fact, the antics of those
papers reminds us of a story our good re
publican friend, Sam Wilson, tells of at
his old home in Missouri, which is some
thing like this A man went hunting one
day and killed a coon. On his way home
he met three boys each of whom wanted
the trophy. He made the proposition that
each boy tell his politics, giving his reason
for so being, and he would give the coon to
the one who gave the best reason, Johnny
said he was a republican because Abraham
Lincoln was a republican and Mr. Lincoln
was a good man. Jimmy said he was a
democrat because his father was a demo
crat and he believed his father was the
liest man on earth. Sammy said he was
neither a republican nor a democrat but
that he was anything to get that coon.
The Times and the Grip are 'just like
Worse Tlinn Mormonlsm.
Alliance is a thriving town because it
has push. When it has worked up all the
material in sight it goes after more. This
is true of all the strata of its society, from
city boss down to grocery clerk all are
striking out for new features. Brother El
lis wont and got married, but Arthur Cholf,
so intent on building up the town that he
forgot, within four days was married
twice. Although misdirected, the fellow's
habits are energetic. We are pleased to
see something in him that we can com
mend We would give him a cradleful of
advice but ho is out of roach. Chelf is

Our neighbors have been roasting Alli
ance considerably about its "Mormonistic
proclivities," some even going so far as to
dub it "Mormon City," but Tub Herald
desires to inform them that the conditions
calling forth their censure arc not of such
magnitude here as has been reported and
that no city has as a whole a more upright,
moral and honorable class of citizens than
However. The Herald cannot and will
not deny the fact that two or three of our
citizens have wantonly and shamefully
deserted their wives good, honest women
who were good enough to spend all thoir
thought and energies for them and share
all their hardships with them in the days
of their poverty and to raise families for
them, bin Tilu Herald can truthfully
say that the actions of these men in dis
carding these poor, broken hearted women
is not approved of by one per cent, of the
citizens of Alliance and the day is not far
distant when they will realize their mis
take in supposing such riddance cnu yield
them happiness, for punishment follows in
the wake of such misdeeds. Look at the
experience of others, For instance, Suna
tor Tabor of Denver Some years ago ho
and his wife were keeping "tavern" in a
Colorado mining camp and poor as Job's
turkeys, his wife taking in washing to sup
port the family. A few years later fortune
smiled upon them when Tabor made a
rich gold find and proceeded to enjoy the
luxuries which his wealth afforded. All
went well until he became prominent and
came to the conclusion that his wife was
too much of a back number for him, hence
must be discarded, so he deserted her and
married a younger and buxom lady from
Chicago. Mrs. Tabor No. 2 of course was
in clover and proceeded to spend the old
man's wealth in the quickest manner pos
sible. Later on reverses overtook Tabor
and he was then deserted by his young
and buxom wife, who pronounced him
"an old fool," He died in poverty and
the poor wife whom he had deserted was
the one who ministered to him during his
last sickness and death.
Moral Don't go back on that poor girl
who stood by you in the days of your pov
erty. Don't worry, it will get here. Geo.
When it comes we'll tell you all about
it. 'Tis surely coming. Geo. Darlino.
Miss Inice McCorkle and Mrs, Stoner,

"Is ilcox 11 ltcptibllciui. '
That seems to be what the Nebraska
senators now in Washington desire to
know or they would not have sent telegrams
asking that question to half a dozen lead
ing republicans of Alliance yesterday, It
appears that Alliance republicans have
charged him with being a democrat before
coming to this county and if he is appoint
ed that J . R. Phelan will receive two-thirds
the salary of the office. As previously
stated it makes no difference to The Her
ald w ho gets the plum but we desire to
publish the facts for the benefit of our
large list of republican readers who are
interested in the mrtter. One of the most
prominent republicans in Alliance said
yesterday "The Herald is the only news
paper in the county. There are two other
toadying mouthpieces but The Hersld is
the only paper that has the nerve to print
the news." This is one reason why The
Herald has the largest republican support
of any paper in the county.
