It is not only a plain duty, on busi

,13crgp for governor, but it real pleasure
as Well." '
Nothing should attract vour attention
from state issues this year. No matter
who is elected president, it will not les
sen your taxes or correct the infamous
revenue law. O'Neill Frontier.
The now revenue law takes away the
right of local assessment and the voters
of Nebraska have the power in their
bauds, if they are nt all dissatisfied
with it by voting; aganst the return of
the present members of the legislature,
who voted for.tbc law.
All possible haste should be made by
the city council in tho matter of the
new wells. The long dry spell has
jnado evarythiug dry as tinder and if a
fire should get beyond the control of
our fito laddies, for lack of sufficient
water supply, there is no telling what
great damage might be done. What is
more our fire department is considera
bly handicapped on account of the scar
city of water.
Colonol John S. Mushy who led the
famous "Mosby Guerrilas" during tho
civil wnr has recently bc,on promoted
to an assistant attorneyship in the de
partment of justice at Washington.
Colonol Mosby is well known in Alli
ance having spont several months here
sometime ago ordering stockmen to
take down their foncos. ' The cplouel
is in bis seventy-fust year, lie did
not need the endorsement of western
cattlemen to secure his now job.
There is no better time than right
now to agitate the question of an arte
sian well. What a grand benefit such
a thing would be to Alliance as well as
to the surrounding country. An at
tempt of this sort might be a risk, but
what do we attempt that lias not a cer
tain amount uf risk attached to it?
Then if it should prove to be a success
ful undertaking what a lasting blessing
it would be to Box Butte county. We
would like to see the matter investigated.

Brown Potato Diggor.
The inspecting agent of the United
States government held up a car load of
stuff belonging to Wm. Fcwket and son
Oran. The stull was driven to town and
yarded with a car load he did pass aud
which had run over the same rango. They
were put into a yard here that has never
been disinfected so far as the people here
know. The cattle which were passed were
lodc.u in cars so dirty that it was evident
that no disinfecting process worthy the
name had been undertaken. Either the
government has not got its regulations down
to the point where they are effective or the
work done by the inspectors is a graft and
they hare to hold up a car occasionally to
make a showing. The way it is managed
at tlie present time is so notoriously ineffi
cient nd childish that the people have
cause to think Hint the inspection, as now
conducted, is to give a few men fat jobs.
The diseases which they hold cattle up for
are not necessarily fatal and it seems like
a good deal of fuss to be made over some
thing that from the nature of the yards,
cars and feeding stations will never be
eradicated by present methods. It is to
be hoped thnt tils government will so
change its regulations under the present
law so that the diseases it is trying to
stamp will be eradicated or else let every
thing go with out inspection.
