HOW WII.I. VOl' CAST YOl'lt VOTi:?
The day will soon be hero when
cverv voter in tho grandest republic in
the world Will be invited to cast
bis vote for a candidate for the
most exalted position in the government,
namely, president of the United States.
This right is given to all, from the.
highest to the lowest, the rich and the
poor alike. When tho ballot box is
entered the voter judges for himself
and it is within his power to mark
in the circle opposite the candidate's
name for whom be will vote. From
whence came this act affecting every
individual of this great commonwealth?
How many who will exorcise the right
to -voto next Tuesday know who ad
vocated and brought about this act
making all men equal? History points
out plainly that to Thomas Jefferson,
the father of democracy, must be
given credit. It ns thiough his efforts
tbut we all have the right of fran
chise today. Alexander Hamilton, the
leader of tho republican forces, was in
favor of class legislation and before a
cittecn would be given power to vote, he
would be obliged to possess a certain
financial standing. This spirit smaked
too much of the old English law, and
tho young American colonists, who bad
but recently cast off such a yoke, op
posed and defeated the Hamilton idea.
But the spirit is not yet dead. The
battle ot.Jeffcrson, liko the opposition
to tyranny, must bo fought even in next
Tuesday's battle of tho ballots. On the
one side stands Judge Alton B. Parker,
the Jeffersonian candidate of democracy
and equality of manhood, while on the
other is Theodore Roosevelt, the repre
sentative of Hamilton and class legis
lation, of the rich vs. the poor. One
believes! in the constitution of the
United States and strict observance
thereto. The other, that might is right
and money must rule.
The day is at band ! With whom
will you cast your voto ? Jefferson or
Hamilton? Parker or Roosevelt ? Your
interest or that of the money power ?
It's up to you voter, take your choice.
VOIT. l'OIt HON. G. V. HKHOIm
The campaign in the interest of Hon.
George W. Borge, the fusion candidato
for governor, is sweeping the state and
the general prediction gives him a
majority of 3,000 to 6,000. Mr.
Bergo's open oposition to the free pass
system, tho inequality of railroad tax
ation, high freight ratos, etc., have
drawn voters toward him irrespective
of party lines. The conditions which
the present revetuio law has brought
lias sot tho farmcts ami stock growers
against a contintiatiotnof tho Mickey
Lot the voters of Box Butte county
assist In increasing Mr. Horec's'ina
jority ntul thereby receive the bailouts
of bis wisdom ami justice in the gov
sThnt A, C Johnson will poll a large
voto in all parts of the county is tho
opinion of n groat many. And there
nro not a few political proRiiosticalora
who arc predicting bis election. Re
tnuinbur "Dad" when you go to the
Win. Mitchell lias pioven such a
strong and popular candidate among
all clnaios that the opposition press
tins" resorted to fulse insinuations 111 its
attempt to injtiro him. Thcte is no
(Utostion about his election.
A vote for Robert Graham for ropio
sontativo means that you will assist a
man to tho legislative body in whom
you can have implicit confidence. Mr.
Graham, we can nssnrc 3-011, will prove
an able exponent of the inteiests of
stockmon and laboring classes alike,
and ho will not be dominated by the in
fluences of corporations. Protect your
own interests by supporting honest,
able 'Bob" Grahnin at the polls next
HON. W. B. McNEEL
Democratic Candidate for Congress
in the Sixth District.
If there is a man in western Nebraska
who is 'meeting with merited success it
is Hon. Walter B. McNee of North
Platte, Democratic candidate for con
gress in the Sixth Nebraska district.
Mr. McNcel was in Alliance last Wed
nesday for a short lime and while here
had the pleasure of meeting a large
number of voters irrespective of party
lines. Mr. McNcel is a pleasant and
inteiesting conversationalist and thor
oughly acquainted with public questions
which ho discusses openly and plainly.
It is bis natural, manly attitude that
draws the voter, and it was noticeable
that even those who differed with him
on political propositions held the same
respect and consideration accorded him
by party men. For those who have
not met the Democratic candidate or
beard expressions coming from him,
wo consider tho following interview
hearing 011 questions of paramount im
portance to the people of this distiict
as giving a good idea how Mr. McNeel
stands and what the voters may expect
of him in the event of his election:
"I am getting acquainted with the
voteis of my distiict," said Mr. Me
Neel, "and it takes some traveling to
do it. Tho Sixth congressional dis
tiict is as large as the state of Indiana,
containing 45,000 square miles of tun i
toiy. I am gieatly interested '" thr
development of western Nebraska and
believe that much of its vaB .icimgc
can be put under irrigation. It elected
to congress 1 shall advocate tho sinking
of artesian wells for irrigation purposes,
and another thing as well, as I have a
firm impression that most of the land
covers minerals. There is every rea
son to believe that coal exists under
western Nebraska 111 quantities sum
ciently large to pay mining operations,
and in boring,) for artesian wells the
drills will bring to the surface what
lies bencath.There are thousands of
others in my district who share in this
belief If I am elected to congress I
shall safegaurd the interests of my con
stituents in every possible manner. 1
believe in direct legislation, govern
ment ownership of public utilities, and
the election of all public officers by the
people. 1 am also in favor of larger
appropriations for internal improve
ments and less for external, so that
tho taxes we pay the government will
(low plentifully and freely among the
noonle. I am entirely opposed to mo
nopoly, trusts, fraud,, bypocriey and
sham of every description. I am also
opposed to a tariff on lumber. I do not
believe the people should be freezing in
sod houses for tho want of lumber pro
tected by an unjust tariff. In the gub
ernatorial campaign there can be but
one ending. Mickey will run behind in
every precinct in the state. We have
Beige elected right now. Tbero is no
mistake about it and as 1 have been
visiting many communities during the
past few days I know how things are
Mr. Toxpaycr, Con You Afford This?
Voters should remember that the cost of
running the state government during the
last four years was ONE MILLION SIX
HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS
MORE than under the previous four years
of fusion management. Do you want a
continuation ol such extravagance? If so
vote for Mickey, Currie and lirezee.
Voto Against the Amendment.
An unncossary expanse which the re
formers have buen saddling upou thetax
payers of the state is the proposed consti
tutional amendment. Not one voter out
of twenty pays the loast attention to it and
all thinking men sao in it a chance for
partisan newspapers to filch upwards of
$25,000 from the taxpayers of the statu
every time such an attempt is made. Vote
against the constitutional amendment and
rid the state of a squandering nuisance.
HON. CHAS. F. COFFEE
Fusion Candidate For Senator in the
It is in a spirit of gratification that
Tim IIkkald is able to announce the
goneral expression throughout the 14th
senatorial district of the predicted sue
ecu of Hon. Chailes lr. Coffee, fusion
candidate 'for this important position.
The Confidence placed in Mr. Coffee's
honor and integtity 1ms been and is the
socio t of his universal popularity, His
past rocord as a member ot the logis
latin p was so well earned that his
name is respected by men of all parties
in the diotrirt who lmvc learned the
wisdom of his oflicinl actions. In
speaking of tho candidacy of Mr. Cof
feo, the Chiuliun Times, published nt
the home of this cnudidatc, says:
, "Mr. Coffee is a native of Missouri,
whote he was born Murcli 22, 1847. In
1 80 1 be emigrated with his father to
Toas, where bo passed bis young man
hood. In 1871, being fond of advent
ure and partial to the free life led by
the" cowboys in those exciting days, he
began trniling cnttlo to Wyoming, and
two years later he located a ranch and
started in the slock business on his
own account. In 1879 he married Miss
CHARLES I'. COFFKK.
Jennie Toney of Camden, Arkansas,
and in the same year opened another
ranch in Sioux county, Nebraska; but
tor leuson that the country was wild
and the Indians troublesome he did
not bring his family hero to reside till
about 1887. He lived in Sioux county
up to the time he was nominated in
kjoo for representative, when he re
moved to Chndron to obtain tor his
child! en the benefit of our excellent
rchools. In his candidacy for the
lower house of the legislature in kjoo
be was successful against Allen G.
Fuller, and received the flattering
majorit' of 387 votes as a testimonial
of the remarkableconfidence which peo
ple reposed in him. Mr. Coffee remain
ed in Lincoln during the session of the
legislature, which lasted three months,
the members getting pay for only sixty
days, and he attended strictly to the
duties which devolved upon him,
shirking nothing, dodging nothing, but
working faithfully all the tune for his
constituents. He was well enough
thought of by bis paity associates to
receive at their bands two compliment
ary votes for United States senator.
There are three classes of men who
make up legislative bodies. Those
most noticed arc tho forensic members.
Those usually the most effective are
the silent but quiet workers who labor
adroitly with individuals and are suc
cessful. It is to this second class that
Mr. Coffee belongs. Work on the side
privately among legislators wns where
lie'uiake himself felt in impoi taut points.
Mr. Coffee is personally identified with
all the people in his district. He has
lived in this section of country from a
very early date, encountering and over
coming the hardships and dangers of
the 1 emote frontier for many years,
and has carved out an honorable suc
cess and fortune. All the property ho
owns in the world is right here paying
taxes. He is one of the large cattle
raisers of the state, and not one of
them knows better than he what is best
adapted to the stock interests of west
ern Nebraska; nor can they accom
plish more for the extension and safe
guarding of this all-important industry.
Let no man in this dirtrict be deceived
into casting bis voto for an abstracter
of real estate titles as against a man
like Mr. Coffee who has arrived through
experience to an unequalled knowledge
of all the important requirements of
this senatorial district."
