LOUIS BUECHSENSTEIN WINS
Elected Mayor of Alliance by a Hand
Everybody and his wife were out a"t the
polls last Tuesday the largest number of
votes being cast in the history of Allianca.
The voting was spirited but good natured
and nothing unpleasant arose to mar the
event. Oversix hundred votes were polled
showing the interest that everybody con
cerned took in the election. For the first
time in the history of Alliance two munici
pal tickets were in the field both nonparti
san tickets and strange to say the only dif
ference was as to which candiddates would
give the best administration to the city.
Both sides used the war cry "there's nothing
too good for Alliance." Down in Broken
Bow the bowling alleys and billiard halls
formed the issue but Alliance has over
grown the kindergarten stage and aspires
t) metropolitan notions. A decided ma
jority of the citizens choose Buechsenstcin
for mayor by 132 over his opponent Cap
tain Akers. The mayoralty contest was
the one around which most interest center
ed. The following is the way the vote
W. K. Akers.
Jas. H. H. Hewett..,
F. M. Knight
R. M, Hampton
For City Engineer.
J. P. Hazard
For Police Judge.
L. A Berry
D. W. Butler
A. D. Rodgers
F. C Mollring. ...
G. E. Leidy,
C. A. Snow ,
For School Directors.
D. V. Hughes
R, C. Noleman
W. L Achespn
John Pilkington ....'
Hughes and Noleman, the two
the highest number of votes for
rectors, were elected. ,
Most everyone was surprised at the large
H C. Armstrong, John Carmicle find
Lou Suprise seem to be pretty good politi
cal prophets while George Burke and Ed
Marks are better judges on the outcome of
a baseball game.
D. W; Butler takes his defeat philosoph
ically ,and considers it as much of a victory
ai if he had been elected. Mr. Butler is
entitled to the lion's share of credit for the
winning ticket being placed in the field
and he did lots of hard work for its suc
cess. K. M. Hampton is not losing any sleep'
over the treasurership. It is reported that
Congressman Mercer would make a per
sonal canvas for votes and kiss all the
babies. We never heard of Dr. Knight,
Captain Akers or Judge Berry doing this
but such a trick would be just like A. D.
Rodgers, Charlie Snow or Fred Mollring.
It was amusing to watch the ladies cast
their first ballot. Judges Bert Gilman and
Dick Watkins seemed delighted to instruct
them while Mr. Cavin and some of the
other clerks looked on with jealous eyes.
Some of the fair sex seemed to particularly
have John Pilkington in mind. John says
' he don't care a cent about being defeated
but he didn't like to see some of those
'goody' people who have neither property
or children walk up and cast illegal votes."
He says he can give their names.
"Vanity of vanities and all is vanity"
says Solomon. I wonder what he'd say if
he'd got defeated running for office. Guess
he'd take a vacation into Africa in search
of consolation for wounded vanity and
pride of spirit. Vanity is our most vulner
able point and when we are classed among
the "also ran" we feel like crawling into a
gopher hole to avoid the loud "ha ha" of
the other side. But better luck next time.
A year hence, try again and fortune may
favor you. The co-operation of all good
citizens is necessary for the upbuilding of
our city. The captious critic and the
chronic kicker are public nuisances.
Though citizens may differ as to the meats
yet the end to be obtained is acknowledged
by all and though you may not approve of
the other fellow's methods still unles3 they
are opposed to the welfare of the commun
ity you ought not to get out and brand him
as a criminal.
"Let each man learn to kuow himself
To gain that knowledge let him labor,
Improve those failings iu himself
Which he condemns so in his neighbor."
Some amusing dodgers were circulated
on election day. Some were signed, others
were not. Some promised too much,
others promised too little Some promised
pork and beans, others promised roast
duck. And all for office. "Who paid for
that duck?" "Who hit McGinty?" "Who
stole Mrs. Brown's husband?" These are
nuts for you to crack. The public does
not favor such things. - -
Sanford Dodge and his excellent compa.
ny will appear at the Phelan April 28 and 29.
Geo. A. Fentori and Sarah R. Stoutlt of
Lakeside were married last Friday after

announced. All other services will be held
George Snyder's barn caught fire, or
was set on fire by children it is thought,
last Tuesday and was almost wholly de
stroyed before the hose company could ar-"
rive upon the scene.

Grandma Phelan, who had speni several
months visiting relatives and friends here,
departed Sunday night for her home at
Albert Lea, Minn. Mrs. Phelan made
many warm friends during her stay in Alli
ance. Dr. C. W. Kreamer, the new dentist,
has been in town several dqys this week.

Albertl, which will be given at the Metho
dist church tomorrow evening. The lec
ture will be profusely illustrated by lantern

most entertaining talker and as ho speaks
front personal knowledge and experience
his lecture is expected to be one of unusual
interest. The Masons pay for this them
selves and only themselves and families
and ttose to whom they send invitations
will be admitted.
The moral and religious weeklies up the
street must be having a bad case of cramps
just now For weeks past they have, been
aching for rightousness and morality in
Alliance. Ye gods! what a change from
olden times. There is always hope for
the conversion of the erring one. Who
would imagine that such things would come
to pass? "When the devil is sick, the
devil a monk would be. When the devil
is well, the devil a monk is he!"
Announcements have been received by
friends in this city of the marriage of Mr.
Alfred Tyler Hemmingway to Miss Arabel,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Barber
White, at their home at 616 East Thirty
sixth street, Kansas City. Mr. Hemming
way is in the employ of the Forest Lumber
Co., and has gained many friends in the
few months he has been in our city, The
bride's father owns the largest amount iu
the Forest Lumber Co. She has visited
in Alliance and created quite favorable
impressions upon those she met then.
They will arrive in the city next week.
Swanholm Department Stoie Opens.
The Swanholm department store gave
an opening last Friday evening which had
a very large attendanance and elicited
much favorable comment on the part of all
present. No sales were made but the
clerks in the various departments were
present to assist in explaining matters and
entertaining the visitors. Moore's or
chestra, which had been engaged for the
o:casion, discoursed sweet music from a
platform in the center of the store. The
scene was brilliantly lighted and the
shelves in all departments were loaded
with fine lines of goods tastefully arranged
to display them, and decorate the store.
Mr. Swanholm dispensed fine cigars Jo the
gentlemen and Mrs. Nellie Hillier brewed
delicious chocolate for the refreshment of
the ladies. The occasion was certainly
very successful in acquainting the people
with the store and its genial proprietor.
Alliance'welcomes such enterprising busi
ness men and wishes them success.
Tito Late Unpleasantness.
Our municipal election has come and
gone and the counlry is safe. The stand
pipe is still on tliu hill and though much
hot air has been put in circulation no
blood has been spilled. 'Twas exciting
while it lasted. It was a good spring tonic
like Sarsaparilla. and now we can settle
down to business. Both sides ought to be
satisfied. The election was square and
above board and an emphatic majority lias
signified its willingness to confide the des
tinies of Alliance for twelve months to
Louis Buechsenstcin and his colleagues in
in the council, and we have every reason to
believe that the majority will not regret
its choice. Of course thero will be the usual
number of soreheads, swelledheads, soft
heads and deadheads who will join the
chronic kickers and blame every cyclone
and hail storm that came In thU section
of the country during the coming year on
Buechsenstein just as they attributed the
harvest producing showers of past seasons
to Mark Ilanna and the other partners of
providence, who control our destinies.
However, we prophesy a square, honest,
business-like administration by our mayor.
We do not expect that he will do impossi
bilities but he will certainly stand by and
be responsible for his public life and will
ad a chapter to the good opinion held of
him by all classes of people for his upright
and kind dealings during the many, years
he has lived among us. Louis Buechsen
stcin has always been considered an honor
able citizen of Alliance and he will now
make an honorable mayor. The other of-
nciais elected nave the commence ot the
people and Insure a clean, healthy admin
istration of municipal affairs.
Retail Clerks Organize.
The retail clerks of this city held an en
thusiastic meeting in the courthouse last
Friday evening, at which a large number
of clerks were present. The meeting was
to form an association for the protection of
their rights as clerks and for the good and
general welfare of themselves and their
employers. The organization will be
known as "The Retail Clerks' Union" of
Alliance, Neb., and the following officers
were elected: President, H.G.Warrick;
vice-president, Norbert Fronapfel; secre
tary, G. F. Cornu: treasurer, Will Davis,
guide, Rube Chapman. A constitution
W"as dr.iwu up Tind bylaws adopted and
everything bids fair for the success of the
new organization. There is a meeting
called for nezt Thursday evening for the
purpose of furthering plans relating to the
future welfare of the organization at which
meeting a large number of applications
fomembership will be passed upon. It is
to be hoped that the new organization will
obtain the support of the people at large,
as their banding together is for an honest
and just cause.
The Hills Automatic Door Strip.
The recently patented door strip put on
the market by George A. Hills is the hiost
ingenuous and practical invention conceiv
able for the purpose which it serves.
Various devices for excluding rain, snow,
etc., have been offered the public, each
with its advantageous points, but of in
different utility. An ad showing by
illustrations the operation of Mr. Hills'
patent appeared last week in The Her
ald's advertising columns. It absolutely
keeps out wind, rain, dust and drafts and
its cost will be more than saved in one
season by saving carpets, mats, etc.. and
reducing the cost of heating roomj? in cold
weathor. It prevents new doors from
warping and is simply and easily attached.
Its cost is so low that it is easily within
reach of all. They are manufactered and
shipped from Alliance. He now has a
large number of agents out on the road
introducing it and is constantly establish
ing others in new territory.
Live and Let Live."
We agree with Emperor William who
says that "the surest way to preserve peace
is to be always prepared for war." The
Herald dislikes squalid squabbles. It
always did and does now. But the other
fellow started the row and The Hekald
will always be the last in the field. How
ever, it is our earnest wish to live in har
mony with" our neighbors of every degree.
We bear no personal spite or malice. Our
policy is "live and let live." We do not
wish an enemy where we may have a
friend. Life is too short and the struggle
for existence too acute to waste energy in
