Advertisers Should Remember
That when they place nu advertisement in Tim IIukald Unit it in
road by nearly twice as iiuuiy people as an ml 111 any other Alliance
paper. In othur words Tim Hukald's circulation is nearly twice that
of any other Alliance publication and by circulation wo moan a paid
nj) bona fide subscription list. Tun Hi.kald has averaged more new
subscribers KACH DAY than all other Alliance papers combined hnve
nvcraged EACH MONTH during the last year. These statements may
sound strong but we challenge anyone to refute thorn. Tint Hukai.h
has the largest circulation in Alliance, Hemingford, Mut stand, Lawn,
Canton, Box Butte, Dunlnp, Lakeside, Reno, and in Sheridan county.
Subscribers Should Remember
That Tin! Herald is reliable. That its home news service is
unexcelled. That it is the official publication of the county. That it is
the only paper that keeps a corps of good correspondents from neigh
boring towns. That when there are any special articles such as Dr.
Horn's letters, etc., insight that Tin; Herald will get them. That
Tins IIukald is the only independent newspaper jn Alliance and is not
( afraid to publish the truth.
"O, Ilnsc Ingratitude."
Most every paper in the district, except
the Alliance Times, has commented on the
Alliance Grip changing its political coat
since the announcement of Bruce Wilcox's
nomination for the registership of the Alli
ance land office. The Times has not even
mentioned the fact. Doubtless Bro, Ellis'
heart is too full to speak of the matter and
he is thinking of the base ingratitude of the
owner of the Grip. It was only a year
ago that Ellis went to Phelan and offered
to turn the Times over to him for a mouth
piece, to take the place of the Grip, if he
(Phelan) would, sell the paper to the pro
prietor of The Herald but Phelan re
plied 'Yes, but what if you would sell out,
I wouldn't have any then." This and other
things that have come to pass gois to show
that Bro. Ellis has always been ready to do
the "right thing" with him and now to be
dropped like a hot coal, the same as sev
eral other Alliance men were, is indeed
cruel and hard to beat. But the Times
continues to play second fiddle for Jay R.

JnUfiu Kicker Ali.s Himself.
The last Allianco Herald in an interest
ing number. Brother O'Keefo is tossing
fisticuffs at other brethren of the quill
down there with a regular John L. Sullivan
abandon. He landed one full and fair on
Broome's right optic. Now Broome is
both a good fighter and good sprinter, and
tli ;re is no ucsd that wo jump into the
ring to save him from a Jail, but it so
happens that he has weakened his right
feeler by whoring with the B. & M. so
that he will not be able to push O Keefe
into his corner. Being the original Bryan
man in northwest Nebraska and having
never hesitated as to what is political truth
nor faltered in voicing it, our knuckles
now are mailed in virgin metal. First as
to Broome. He unfortunately got tangled
up with the B & M. which took the con
troling interest and made him a
mouthpiece a muzzled editor. It was not
Broopie's deliberate choice; it was galling
to his nature; a sad mistake in getting
caught in plute machinery and whirled
through the air. It was the mistake of his
life, Ho better had eaten dirt in the
streets. When a man surrenders or even
compromises his honest convictions
wounds his sense of duty and yields to
the dictation of a leper man, woman or
corporation he invites the tortures of the
inferno to come in hut haste.
Now, O'Keefe, by what record of Jeffer
sonian sanction do you let your right and
your left out at Broome? Didn't you go
whoring too with the enemies of the Saints?
You made money by it. As a result you
have a tip-top local paper. And you ride
a good horse when on horseback. But
you paid a tremendous price for material
gain. No temporary or temporal advant
age can ever make up for what you lost.
Temporizing with eternal principle hurts
a man beyond all reparation. You held
your breath for Clevelandism until you wero
black in the face, and fell down on the
"pregnant hinges" of your nnatomy before
the tyrant god, Tobe Castor, till your
knees struck through your breeches. You
are both men of great excellence of heart;
both have made mistakes as the rest of
the mortals have done; therefore please
drop athletics and brickbats till you have
strayed to farther distance from the glass
Under the caption "Tortures of the
Damned" Judge Kicker has thu above to
say in the last week's issue of the Chadron
Times. The Herald has believed
Judge Kicker to be an honest as well as
an able man nnd has always had a sort of
admiration for him
is evidence that
However, the above
the venerable judge
"makes mistakes as well as the rest of the
mortals have done" and one of them is
to "make mountains out of mole hills."
No, Judge, Brother Broome and ourselves
have had no great pugilistic encounter,
only a little friendly political tilt. The
Herald is pleased to recognize you as the
"original Bryan man of northwest Nebras
ka," judge; but does that make you any
better than those who have been "Bryan
men" since 1896? But judge, your repre
sentation that we have made money by the
forsaking of party or principle is as errone
ous as you are radical. This is the first
time, to our knowledge, that such a charge
has been made against us and if you ever
make such an insinuation again, judge,
more than your knees may be "sticking
through your breeches."
