Some local pessimistic publications
are disgruntled because Tun Herald
advocates sewerage for Allianco and
the erection of public or piivnto build
ingsthat could be used for similar
purposes as those already constructed.
Now keep your shirts on brefliren 1 If
the erection of a three story block by
Norton is going to hurt the town wo
fail to sec how. If tho building of a
sewerage plant will hurt ttie town wo
fail to see in what manner. True
thcie may ho a little additional taxa
tion but who would refute to pay it
that owns proporty here or oxpects to
make Allianco his future home. A
new Federal building might cause the
syndicate block to lose a government
tenant ami Simouson who owns the
port office building might have to got a
now tenant, but is that any valid
reason why no more building should by
done ? Neither will the establishment
of an Elks club here interfere in any

business men's club, nor the quartet
they ocoupy. There h room for both.
Neither of you would object to another

could hope to get a piece of tho buti-

The City of
LLIANCE is a thriving city of
perous and glowing prospects
of Omaha, 23C miles north of
western Nebraska. It has wator works, electric lights, a three story city
hall and fire engine house, first class fire company and apparatus. Two
large school buildings; employs twenty teachers to educate its 1000
school children. Seven churches. U. S. land office, Court house, two
National Banks, modern business blocks and handsome residences. Its
railroad facilities are the best. It is on the main line of the Burlington
from cither Chicago or Ht Louis to Portland and the Pacific coast. It
Is tho Division headquarters for western Nebraska, Wyoming, South Da
kota and Montana, the offices of General Superintendent Rhodes having
been recently located here. The western division shops arc located
here and more than 600 railroad men arc' employed here. Its people
arc hospitable, enterprising, and intelligent. Its climate is healthful and
invigorating. In short, no town in Nebraska presents superior induce
ments for men of capital, enterprise nnd push, to locate within her
bordors Letters of inquiry addressed to the Alliance Hsrai.o will be
nnswered promptly and in detail. Better write for a copy of our hand
some twenty-four page Illustrated Industrial edition, it will tell you more
than we could write you in a month. '
while the brook trout came next with
292.000. Those are the only species
which came ovor the 100,000 mark,
it is the policy of the department to
plant game fish as much as prnc
ticablo. A large percentage of the entire
num-ber Idistributed during the two
years, 19,881.061, wero placed in the
clear sandy bottomed streams in the
western pnit of the state. Six-month-old
croppios to the number of 87.775 were
distributed also. The department
also distributed 23440 eightccn-montliH
old catfish, 22,200 of the samo species
one year old and 16,590 yellow bull
heads. The waning popularity of the
Gorman carp is shown by tho fact that
only 750 fry wero distributed, and 2,3Go
of the six-monlhsold fish and 775 of
tho one-year-old fish. During the
two years the fishery distiibutcd 5,309
gold, silver and pcail fish.
ThoNiobara, th'e White, the Elkhorn
and the Loup rivers have secured most
of those supplies, and the time is near,
if we foster tho industry, when rainbow
trout, wall eyed pike and black bass
will bo within .the reach of ordinary
mortals, while now only the wealthy
can indulge in thii kind of luxury.

It is manifestly unfair for one com

principle of allowing every man to vote

the present Slocum law but onforce it.

Mr. Britton suffered a second stroke of
paralysis a couple of weeks since, the firM
stroke having been three or four years ago.
He was in the field getting a load'of feed
and was driving a friaky team. He had
pretence of mind enough to wrap the lines
nrlmnd his arm and thus held the team
until help camo probably an hour or more
later; he lost the power of speech and his left
side was completely paralyzed. He ral
lied rapidly and soon became able to write
and thus make his wants' known. About
this time he received a committee of Ins
brother Masons from Alliance which he
greatly appreciated. On Tuesday evening
he was stricken again nnd this time the
paralysis extended to the lungs and hope
was abandoned. He passed away the net
Friday morning, very peacefully, the im
mediate cause of his death being oxygen
starvation. He was unconscious for sev
eral hours preceding .his death.
Mr, Britton was not a memcar of any
church but always supported and encour
aged tu3 work of the church which he at
tended. Ho was a thoroughly good man.
His neighbors say that no one could have
been a better neighbor than he.
