The students of the high school gave a
reception in lSaglc hall Monday night in
honor of Miss Irene Elliot who won second
honors in the dramatic clnss at tho state
elocutionary contest held at Schuyler Fri
day night. The first honors were won by
the contestant from the Omaha high school.
The hall was nicely decorated in the class
colors, the platform beiug transformed in
to a bower of lummy draped with the colors
and surrounded by palms on which was
seated the queen of the evening. The
guests were received by a reception com
mittee of the 12th grade, and had the pleas
ure of listening to the following excellent
program: Vocal solo Vina Perry, -accompanist,
Pearl Mitchell, instrumental solo,
Nina Nation, Heading, Miss Combs, vocal
solo, Marion Lotspeich, piano accompanist
Miss Bartz, violin, Miss Crawford, instru
mental solo, Leah Kramer, instrumental,
Inez Beck. This was followed by speeches
from different members of the faculty.
This is the first time the Alliance school
has entered the contest for state honors
and that our contestant should return bear
ing the laurels of victory is a source of
great satisfaction to the members of the
high school faculty and the people. Miss
Elliot has had no professional training as
had mauy of the contestants from the east
ern schools, but has remarkable talent, a
pleasing,appearance and has given much
hard work and practice to this work that
she might represent her school creditably.
The students here rejoice in her victorv
and we give three cheers for the high school
in general and the class of '04, in particu
lar. Some of the "boys" had a great time last
Saturday evening at the home of D. C.
Taylor. Mr. Sutherland invited a num
ber of friends to spend the occasion with
him feasting on roast pig and other del
icacies that the guests displayed decidedly
active appetites in devouring. 'IT ere were
other articles on the menu which were of
a rare and pleasing nature and brought
forth the enthusiasm of the invited to Mich
a degree that there were some very inter
esting (lights into oratory and poetry.
Cards and dancing were the pleasures of
the occasion and the cup of joy and good
nature overflowed. Bro. Broom acted as
tofstmaster in his usual happy style.
The first installment of an interesting
serial story appears in this issue of The
Herald. The title, "Darkest Russia,"
makes the story doubly interesting at the
present time for the fact that it treats at
length of history and the present-coadition
of life in Russia, the mighty nation who is
at present in a most fierce struggle to over
come the Japanese power in the far east.
The author of this serial is none other than
the well known literary writer, H. Grattan
Donrielly, and this production is considered
one of his master pieces. While the story
is educational in a historical sense it is also
well written as a novel and will be enjoyed
by everyone who will interest themselves
in reading it.
The Alliance Stea,m Laundry has in
stalled a new machine known as a power
starcher, for the purpose of starching such
small articles as collars and cuffs. It has
a capacity of 1,000 pieces an hour and
does it work well. There's no raveling or
destroying of linen and hence overcomes
one of the most troublesome features of
the business. The Alliance laundry is one
of the best equipped institutions of the
kind along tue Burlington route.
The weather caught another cold last
Sunday and as a result there was quite a
heavy frost that night. Overcoats and
heavy underwear were a necessity and a
fire proved was cheerful as a May bride.
The cold snap extended to other sections
and in fact it all the western states cast of
M. B. Quivey returned Wednesday from
Sheridan, Wyo , where ho has been buy
ing pototoes for the last six weeks. He
(.hipped out fifteen cars from that vicinity
to Kansas and other states. Mrv Quivey
says the potatoes grown there are large
and nice looking but in quality will not
compare with Box Butte tubers.
Miss Pearl Bartz entertained the lady
teachers of the city schools last Saturday
night. The evening passed pleasantly and
quickly. Flinch, reduced to a science be
ing the game indulged in until a late hour
when elaborate refreshments were served.
A good old jolly time was the report.
Mr. and Mrs. C.A. Newberry have a new
baby daughter at their home, born last
Friday. It is said the new arrival has won
a place in the hearts of the other children
and there's nothing too good for her lady
ship. The infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter
Floharty died Sunday night at 12:30, of
spinal disease and the funeral took place
Monday afternoon fronvthe M. E. church,
Rev, Scamahorn officiating.
Miss Allison Johnson and Blanche Mc
Donald accompanied Miss Elliot to Schuy
ler last week.
Misses Delia Reed and Almeda Fosket
were the guests at the home of Sheriff
Reed over Sunday.
C. H. Tully was up from Lakeside
last Monday transacting business.
The Long Fought Contest for County
Trcosurcrship at Last Ended.
A surprise was sprung in political and
county office circles last Saturday, when
County Treasurer Alex Muirhoad annouc
ed his intention of giving up the long-,
drawn contest, which has been going on
since last fall, when he nnd Charles
Brennan, the democratic candidate, made
the race for treasurer nnd which final
ly resulted in a tie at tho rosunt session nf
the district court, the contestants drawing
lots and Brennan winning. Muirhcad
later was inclined to appeal to the
supremo court and in fact had made ar
rangements to carry the matter to that
tribunal but it seems after due cousideralion
the chances were so uncertain that he
concluded to let the matter drop and
therefore llrcnnan has assumed charge of
the office. It can be said to the honor of
both contestants thauin the history of
politics for many daysrulierc has not oc
cured h like instance, where the dignity
and consideration of one party to the
other have been demonstrated and only
the law and decisions of those interested
permitted to decide the matter. Wc
believe that the county of Box Butte will
find in Mr. Brennan a competent, obliging
officer and The Herald is free to concede
that Mr. Muirhead has proven himself to
be a nian who while in office discharged
the duties thereof with enjire satisfaction.
' One of the considerations in settling
this matter was the concession of Mr.
Brennan in allowing Mr. Muirhcad clerk
fees from the first of the year, amounting
to $250. While this was not obligating on
the part of the newly installed treasurer
it shows .1 spirit to do the right thing and
wo are all pleased to see such reciprocal
considerations shown on both sides.
Lockwoods to Leave.
The announcement that gained circula-'
tion recently to the effect that Messrs.
Lockwood, who compose one of our most
prominent and substantial business firms,
contemplated leaving Alliance and remov
ing to Pocatella, Idaho, has proven to be
true. It. F. Lockwood returned from a
trip to thatcity last Saturday and as we
understand made a deal that will necessi
tate the firm's locating out there Pocatel
la, is situated in the southern part of Idaho
and is surrounded by a rich agricultural,
mining and grazing country. The water
resources are excellent and the town has
had a steady growth ever since it was plat
ted. It is the connecting point of the Ore
gon Short Line and the Union Pacific rail
ways and is also a lively place a.-, far as
transportation is concerned. The Lock
woods will dispose of their stock as soon as
possible so they can make the change in
time to commence business anew in Pota
tella at the time arranged. Of course the
friends and patrons of this firm will regret
to learn of this proposed change, but they
will also wish father and son success in
their new home. And The Herald, which
has done lots of business with the Lock-
woods, wishes to speak a good word to the
citizens of Pocatella in their behalf.
Ed Hall, a car repairer for the B. &
M. at this place, was taken into custody
last Saturday by Marshall Harrand Sheriff
Reed for showing unmistakabls sigus of
insanity. In fact Hall was considered a
dangerous character and the commissioners
saw fit to have him taken to the state asy
lum at once, which Sheriff Reed did Sun
day night. The demented man came here
from Shenandoah, Iowa, during the winter
and has been working for- the company
ever since. Hall has a wife and children
in this city and ar, we learn they are not in
easy circumstauces. He bears .the repu
tation of being an industrious employe and
not until this incident, has he shown indi
cations of mental weakness.
R. E. Coburn of Carroll, Iowa, was in
the city Tuesday on his return east from
the Big Horn country in Wyoming, where
the First National bank of his home town,
of which he is cashier, is largely interested.
Mr. Coburn s an old time friend of J. B.
Kniest, and the meeting of the two Car
rollites out here in the west was interest
ing to both parties. The bank is also in
terested in considerable land along the
Platte and Mr. Coburn spent a day at
Bridgeport looking up their interests.
A postal dated May 6, received by The
Herald yesterday from John Pilkington
states that R. C. Noleman, E. P. Sweeney
and himself were enjoying a visit at the old
Mexican town of Tia Juana, which is just
over the border line, a few miles south of
San Diego, Cali. He says they were all
well. No doubt the genial John is showing
his guests a pleasant time.
An old folks concert will be given by
forty children in costume at the opera
house next Wednesday ovoning, under the
auspices of the First Presbyterian church.
The program will consist of old time songs,
solos, duets and choruses. Admission, 25
cents, children, 15 cents, resorved seats,
Frank G. Miller, of the University of
Nebraska, who is now doing special duty
for the state in forestry department, was
here a few days the first of the week over
seeing the planting of 10,000 jack pines on
the Cramer ranch west of town. The Tri
bune is pleased to note that interost in
the matter of artificial forests is being
stimulated quite generally throughout this
part of tho hills and much credit fcr the
fact is due to tho enrarprise sf those who
hnve been experimenting in the past yoars
and who hnvo confidence in their pieces
at the outcomo Walter Hardy, John Porter
and G. W. Sparks will each put out a
thousand pines this season. At the J. R.
Weber ranch south of Elsworth, 15,000'
were planted last week. Mullen Tribune

A pretty wedding occurred Wednesday
night at the home of Mr, and Mrs. J,
Rowan, the contracting parties being Jos.
W. Rusher nnd Miss Olive M. Adams.
Tho ceremony was performed by Rev. G.
C. Jo (furs of the Baptist church in the
presence of n few intimate friends. After
the ceremony that united this worthy
couple in the married state, those pres
ent gathered at the banquet table and en
joyed a sumptuous wedding supper served
in honor of the bridal party. Mr. Rusher,
the groom, is a oung man of sterling
worth, and his integrity has won for him a
responsible railway position at Minatare,
where they will make their home. His
bride has resided in Alliance during the
past year and by her ladylike, amiable dis
position has made many warm friends, And
the publisher of The Herald desires to be
counted among those who wish Mr. and
Mrs. Rusher every blessing and ihapptncss
Mr. and Mrs. Schill also rejoice over
the arrival of a baby daughter whom was
born to them last Sunday in this city.
My, but its a caution how the baby girls
ouffwmber the baby .boys in the past few
weeks. If this ratio is continued Box
Butte will have some swapping with other
sections where the conditions arc the
reverse. Mr Schill was not at home
when the new daughter arrived but he
came up in post haste Tuesday after the
glad tidings had reached him on his distant

ing shop in the room formerly occupied by
R. Madsen. Mr. Nichols is well aquainted
here, having bqen in the qmploy or the B.

gentleman, a first-class workman and will
doubtless command a large share of pat
ronage. Yesterday the Roman Catholic church
observed the anniversary of the ascension

Dr. Bellwood performed a surgical
operation on the seven-year-old son of

VICISSITUDE OF POLITICS
Republicans Turn Down Plielan
Tlio two factions of Bon Hullo count v
tcpuhlicuns nto still at loggcrliouda.
This iact was very evident at tho pri
maries held Tttosdny evening for the
purpose of selecting dolcgntos to the
county and state conventions.
Wlmt is known as the machine or
Plielan faction of republicans wore out
in force nnd had the wires nicely laid
for capturing tho primaries. Their plan
was to elect a cliniiman and have him
appoint a committee of thtec to select
delegates. They wcro the first to ar
rive in Jstwnrd and succeeded in hav
ing one of their number elected chair
man. Hut that is an far as they got.
A motion was made that the chair ap
point the committee hut the maimer of
selecting delegates to the congressional
convention was still fresh in the minds
of the nntimachine men and they were.
not slo.v in knocking the motion into
smithereens. The ttutis then made a
motion that delegates bo elected by bal
lot which carried with the result that
the Phelanites were completely shut off
the delegation and they sneaked out
beat at their own game and "sadder
but wiser men." lnt!e Second ward
a sufficient number of machine men
were sent to tho caucus to carry it but
were without u loader and not being
familiar with the gamo of politics the
nntis scoted another victory, claiming
to have elected 8 of the 1 1 delegates.
As the country piecinctsarc practically
solid anli-machiu'e it is anticipated that
the Phelanites will be shut out of the
various delegations. It is said that one
of the machine men is very dcsiious of
stepping in County Chairmen Corbin's
shoes but the captain advised the gen
tlcinan that he "would see about it"
.and tho prospects ate that Mr. Corbin
will wear them so long as ho desires.
It is indeed painful to Tint IIuuai.d and
tho democrats of the county to see our
tepublictin btethteu indulging in such
encounters brit wo know not how to
stop them. Following are tho delegates
