The Coniiny Kicction.
Tuesday next will be election day. The
candidates, groomed and fit, are already
on the track and both sides coming strong.
Partisans in the grand stand are whooping
up their respective favorites. "Git there,
Eli I" It is anybody's race so far. We
have nothing to add to the opinions we
gave last week. The public is well aware
of existing conditions and the respective
merits of tho3e in the raccand therefore is
competent to pick the winner. Twelve
months is not a very long time between
elections and though considerable harm
might be done by incompetent officials in
that space of time, still the accounting day
will come and at the next election they will
meet a blizzard of condemning votes from
the hands of their outraged fellow citizens.
Tub Herald wishes each man to vote ac
cording to his conscience and may God de
fend the right. It is up to you now, Mr.
Voter. Do your duty.
1 hings to be Hoped Foi.
Whatever ticket may be elected on
Tuesday next it is to be hoped that on
Wednesday there will be a general hand
shaking and a formal burial of the toma
hawk for twelve months at least. It is to
be hoped that the successful candidates
will work for the upbuilding of our vigor
ous young city. We hope for honest trans
action of municipal affairs. We hope for
good and abundant water supply. We
hope for honest fulfillment of electric light
and other franchise contracts. And we
do earnestly hope that a proper sewerage
system may be provided for the city. Let
all put aside personal animosities aDd give
at least moral support to those whom the
majority of the voters select as municipal
officers for the coming year.
Give Your Names, Plcuse!
We are compelled to repeat for the ben
efit of the public that we do not publish in
our paper anonymous communications
dealing in personalities Such a declara
tion on our part ought to be unnecessary
but considering the gro violations of this
obvious rule by our coutemporaries and
the many anonymous communications that
are sent to us for publication we deem it
necessary to express ourselves most em
phatically on this subject once more. An
editor who publishes an anonymous letter
rcllecling on the character of another
ought to be held responsible therefor.
Theteritecofithero. is a coward and honest
men spurn tho coward. If you wish to
sling mud at your neighbor be prepared to
stand for the damages.
The Clirmix of His Trip.
We received another letter from Rev.
Dr. Horn Tuesday. It is dated at Haifa,
March to, and reads " I am doing Pal
estine thoroughly. Will spend thirty days
here, counting time already spent. Saw
Caesarea and Acre today This is really
the climax of my tour. 1 traveled 3,4bo
miles in India and about i.Goo miles in
Egypt that I did not have in my original
plan. 1 did not have Constantinople,
Turkey, jet my plau includes Constanti
nople and Smyrna, also Athens, en route
to Naples and Rome. I expect to arrive
in New York by April 20 or 15."
Doctor, Cure Yourself.
"I fear the Greeks bearing gifts." Croc
odile tears from our contemporaries of the
quill give unmistakable evidence that we
have disappointed them. They regret ex
ceedingly that The Herald has not put
itself in a false position in the present mu
nicipal campaign It would be more be
coming for our contemporaries to keep
their regrets and their advice for their
own benefit They will need both in the
near future. The Hkrald knows its own
business, thank you, and usually attends
to it. It never has to regret its principles.
Hurlington Telegraphers Organizing
Representatives of the Order of Railroad
Telegraphers are scattered all along the
system in the interest of the order and
their members report that all are meeting
with very tlattering success. The Hur
lington operators are the last of the west
ern lines to organize successfully and it is
claimed are now the only road west of the
river not paying standard wages in this
department. Demand will be made some
time in the summer for a schedule and no
trouble is anticipated.
Go to Church !
The pulpits of Alliance will resound Sun
day next with oratorical efforts on the
present municipal crisis. The history of
Jews and gentiles will be ransacked for
parallels and opportune parables. Among
the old Jews there flourished some pretty
tough old politicians so there will be no
low for opportunties to "point a moral
and adorn a tale " The devil will have
his gouty toe stamped on. If you don't
know how to ote, go to church next Sun

Committee and Cltlcnt to Secure
TbN Excellent Institution.
Interest in the securing of a state nor-
mal for this section is by no means on the
wane in Alliance. Since the passage of
House Roll No. too, locating at Alliance
a junior normal, which will commence
June 8, the securing of a permanent nor
mal school has been among the subjects of
first importance in the minds of the busi
ness men of the city.
A meeting was held Saturday evening
at the courthouse to discuss what further
work should be done toward getting tho
the school located here if the senate should
pass House Roll No. 1, the provisions of
which have been previously outlined in
these columns. It has passed the house
and it seems probable that the bill will be
come a law. Its provision that the place
at which the school shall be located must
donate $10,000 is the one that most deeply
concerns us at present. The gift of twenty
acres of land will of course not stand in
the way an instant and the $10,000 can,
from present indications, be raised with
out difficulty. Quite a number of men
present at the meeting stated their willing
ness to give $500 each toward the sum..
The following committee of ten was select
ed 10 have the raising of this sum in
charge. W. G. Simonson, president; J.
W. Baumgardner, secretary; Geo. V

Editor of The Alliance Herald,
Dear sir- It would seem to a person
of ordinary intelligence that a party,
whether a political party or a party of
preachers calling themselves christians,
could do better than to engage a well, a
mule's fattier to desecrate the Rook of
Rooks to throw mud and slang to beat
their opponents. Probably they did not
engage him, for he may be using his jaw
bone to gain cheap notoriety. Probably
the longeared gentleman thinks that no
one but himself knows that he is not com
petent to write Biblical parables, but must
necessarily use a book that lots of people
are familiar with besides himself. Last
week he came out heading his harangue
First Chapter of Chronicles We all know
that to use that term of itself is no harm,
but when he writes up a chapter copied
from the Bible, substituting names, thus
trying to deceive people and trying to
make them believe he is a writer of para
bles, then he shows himself to be wrong
in his head It seems that last week he
must have taken a shorter chapter than he
did the week before, for before he got
through with his harangue. When left to
his own leather headed resoutccs he com
mences to flounder like a fish out of water.
In his last week's epistle he would have us
believe he was neutral for he casually
mentioned Big Hill, thinking perhaps by
so doing he could hold on to his job which
ever gentlemen won. He thinks because
he is a Maverick and unbranded that no
one knows to which herd he belongs Rut
undeceive yourself. The herders saw you
sneaking from Runningwator and when
election is over and you come up for re
appointment you may be sorry you used
your jawbone and will not know whether
your name ought to be spelled with an F
instead of a P. Yours, etc.,

Mrs. Thomas Regan held her millinery
oponing yesterday and in spite of the in
clement weather many ladies were there
to see the display of beautiful new millin
ery and tasteful decorations. The ar
rangment of the show window was indeed
a work of art. Yellow roses were the
(lowers chiofly used, long festoons of them
being gracefully draped from the front and
sides to a point above. The central piece
was a rose tree liearing the beautiful heavy
Marechal Niel roses, as natural looking
as if produced by natnre and more beauti
ful than nature's best effort can produce in
this climate. And then the hats. That
they were all that could be desired in
beauty, artistic combination and variety is
the very least that could be said of thorn
While as in formor seasons all colors are
used in those creations, shades of yellow
seem to be the reigning favorites and the
hats are most of them made of lace though
fancy braids are used to a considerable ex
tent. The opening is to be continued to
morrow. Do not fail to visit the store
then if you have not "already done so.
