a good republican paper in the county.
Well, poskibly so, but it's not so material
now as ninety-nine per cant, of the repub
licans of the county seem to think that
The Herald fills the bill.

was shot and killed at Bridgeport Tuesday
night by Ray Tarble. It seems that the
men had some difficulty and went to a
saloon to settle the matter. Snelling
reached for his gun but in some way it fell
to the floor. Tarble pulled his six-shooter
and told Snelling that If he picked up his
gun he would kill him. Snelling grabbed
the gun from the floor but Tarble was too
quick for him and shot him twice. The jury
returned a verdict of justifiable homicide.

PHIZ E O !
Apostle Klim is Mot Again.
Tuesday's issue of the Mormon Timos
contained nearly a column of ranting
against th editor of Tin: Hrraiai. Thu
spostlo is msd; that is very evident. His
bile long suppressed has nnnlly "popped"
and the long-suffering public has Imcti re
galed with BilllngsuBte and naughty lan
guage. Even if the apostle feels bad ho
should not make a public exhibition of
his lacerated feelings and above all he
should not abuse honest men. Forgetful
of politeness and the requirements of good
society ho compares Tint Hhrald editor
to various of the lower animals who In
their sphoro reflect more credit on their
kind than our apostle does on humanity.
It would bo needless for me to refer to the
many and divers ways in which the apostle
has deviated from the narrow and correct
path of conduct and morality. Tiik Hkk
Ai.n never. expects to be compelled to beg
the public's pardon for anything that ap
pears hi its columns but the citizens of Al
liance and Box Butte county know that if
we were to publish nil thnt we might con
cerning the public and private record of
the apostle we might be compelled to
apologize for the sake of outraged decency.
Though Tiik Hhrai.i editor may be a
"contemptible cur" still he never turned a
wife and child adrift in thu bleak wide
world and thou sheltering behind an in
iquitous divorce law take two wives succes
sively instead of simultaneously. Though
the editor of Tiik Hkkalu may have made
mistakes, which he regrets, still he never
laid himself open to the charges that arc
being made against the apostle by church
and society circles in Alliance at the pres
ent time. We will not go into details fur
ther just now in the matter. Sulfico it to
state that between the character of an
honorable man and that of a dishonorable
one there is no basis of comparison.
In his frothing we gather that Tin: Her
ald is seeking at all times to tear 'down
the character and business of nthurs.
There's no need to tear down your charac
ter, Mr.Apostle. That yon have torn down
yourself and in its fall it has ruined your
business. We would like to repair your
character, if it were possible but we aud the
public know thnt chloride or lime and ob
livion arc all we can consign you to.
What an example you are for the rising
generation 111 I'd rather be a yellow dog
and bay the moon than such a character.
Now, Mr. Apostle, "forbearance ceases to
be a virtue" with such as you. Kindness
is lost on coyotes 1 1 1
If you did not offer to take the place of
the Grip in the interest of J, R. Phelan
why did you tell me that you did and that
Phelan said "Yes, but what if you would
sell out, I wouidn t have any then." It is
true and you know it, I never told you to
go to see Phelan to try to induce him to
sell the Grip to me. When I decided to
come to Alliance fear of my coming filled
you with terror. You begged me not to
order my new plant until you could see
Phelan; you .also stated at that time that
you would take the place of the Grip for
him. I never offered to compromise my
self with Phelan in any way. I could not
do so and retain my own self respect, let
alone the respect of ninety-nine per
cent, of the people. The editor of Tiik
Herald has come to Alliance as a busi
nessman content to abide by the verdict
of his fellow citizens. He asks no favors
and he fears no man. He defended the
retention of the county scat at Hemingford
for the same reason that he would now de
fend its retention in Alliance. If he were
as the apostle he would sell out to the
other party. Such loads always do. You
sought to sell out to the pops but after
consideration they thought you might prove
a hoodoo. 'I here is no need of informing
the public that you owe no allegiance to J.
R. Phelan. J. R. Phelan with all his
faults has always been credited with ability
to pick his satellites. You are a wander
ing star ! ! ! We pity you, dear apostle, for
the senile impotoncy of your hcurrilous
rage. We thought you could do better
than that. It is difficult to stave oil the
consequences of late and early iniquities.
Honesty is the best policy. You'll find it so
in the end if you'll take a friend's advice.
Now, dear apostle, don't stay mad for if you
do we will cool you better next time.

of Tint Murali) may bo assassinated but
he cannot bo intimidated. Tiik. Hhkald
stands for truth, righteousness and honor in
public and private life and for JCion's sake
it shall not make peace nor compromise
with the powors df darkness. Yes, we
have been informed that if we do not stop
publishing things about the apostles of
free love in Alliance we nre likely to be
shot. So we were told yesterday by one
who says he knows. We hardly anticipate
any such thing but we do not protend to
know everything. However, we do know
it to be a fact that nome time ago an Alli
ance man was threatened with bodily
harm if he did not leave up. on "the great
Pasha." This threat was from two of the
"janissaries." We haVe no desire to kill
anyone. Neither do we desire, that our
thread of life be cut just yet. But we
here and now defy the apostles and elders
of Mormonistic tendencies to do their
worst against the editor of Tiik Hkrald.
Threats do not scare us and we will pub
lish the truth even if the heavens fall. We
will publish whatsoever we choose and it
takes more than threats to scare a man of
Irish blood from his duty. Alliance is now
our home; and we would just as soon our
body would lie in the little cemetery north
east of town as that we should be bulldozed
into compromising with the powers that
