AHTI-SALOON I.KAOUK. -
The Anti-Saloon lenguo'liave violated
their contract with their conscience and
arc working for the election of n saloon
or high license ticket at the primaries
tonight. They having like Bishop
Potter, decided to have saloons run
their way if they can nominate and
elect a ticket. It is none of our bust
nesR, hut it does look like tho mcllctii
uhm..u at hand when that organiza
tion will advocate the election of men
who have anuounced over their signa
ture that they arc -for saloons.
But we have no objections. ' Only sym
patic for the league when thoy come
to square up with their conscience.
TUG CJUIP AND TIMES.
Brother Ellis, of the Times, only
comment on tho direct primary is this:
"Yea, a direct primary caucus is fair
to everybody, providing 'everybody'
is not allowed to vote." Does tho
Times mean to insinuate that the
twelve prominent and representative
citizens of Alliance who signed that
caucus call, would be guilty of not
allowing any citizen 4o vote? Docs ho
mean to say that F. V. Harris, Dr.
Bowman, C. A. Aspenwall,-Dr. Knight.
C. A. Newberry, Fred Mollring, Chas.
Brcnnan, Jules Zbinden,' W. O. Barnes,
Judge Berry, D. W. Buttler or R. M.
Hampton, who all signed the call for n
direct primary, are not fair, honest
men? The very purpose that inspired
those men to call such n caucus is the
spirit of fairness, for by that method,
and by that mn,thod only can a fair,
unbiased expression of tho people be
reached as to who the people want fof
Brother Broome, of tho Grip, says:
"Scheme to beat Dr. Bowman." No
more unfair statement could have been
made. Dr. Bowman was tho first man
to suggest a call for a caucus by the
direct primary system and also set the
time to call the primary, giving ten
days notice; and ample time for every
citizen jo make up his mind how he
wanted to vote and to further prevent
the unfair method of other systems,
which permits a little coterie to get
together and at a given moment have
those present vote.
Mayor Bowman is too fair a man to
be charged with wanting to object to a
fair and free ballot. Dr. Bowman's
record a& an executive is all he needs.
Broome's zeal to shut out all other
candidates is not the desire of Bowman
who only asks for, or will accept a nom
ination to carry out his .well defined
plans for municipal government, and a
diiect caucus is decidedly In his favor,
if the people want to rotain him as
mayor, and yet it does notcompel
people to vote for him, who may have
a preference for some one else, and the
same is truo of tho other city officers.
If any man or sot of men will or do
object to a dirrct primary, in the mat
ter of nomination it is evidence that he
is either unfair, dishonest, or afraid.
The citizens of Alliance are all able to
go to a caucus and express their choice
and Dr. Bowman, Dr. Knight, Fred
Harris, Judge Berry or any other mem
ber of the present city official staff are
ready and willing to submit the matter

The City of
LtilANCE is a thriving city of
porous and glowing prospects
of Omaha, 236 milos north of
western Nebraska. It has water works, electric lights, a three storr city
hall and fire engine house, first class fire company and apparatus. Two
large school buildings; employs twenty teachers to educate its tooo
schoolchildren. Seven churches. U. S. land office, Court house, two
National Banks, modern business blocks and handsome residences. Its
railroad facilities are tho best. It is on tho main line of the Burlington
from either Chicago or St. Louis to Portland and the Pacific coast. It
is the 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 are located
-here and more than 600 railrqad men are employed here. Its people
are 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 and push, to locate within her
borders. Letters'of inquiry addressed to the Alliance Hxrald will be

The Nebraska State Journal of yes
terday had this to say editorially:
"Alliance has set a 'good example to
other towns in tho matter of the direct
primary. Without waiting for tho leg
islature to pass n compulsory direct
primary law, they have gone about it
to let the people of tho town vote
directly for their nominees for town
ofnecs'tobe filled at the spring election.
Alliance people evidently feel that they
are as capable of choosing candidates
for offico as would be n few local
bosses: They aru not likelv ever to
go back to tho old way, for it can
usualU be said of tho direct primary as
advertisements sometimes say of an
articlo of merchandise; 'A trial will
convince the most skeptical' "
1 take this means to announce myself a
candidate for the office of Police Judge of
Alliance, for the ensuing term. 1 have held
the office for one term, and have tried on
all occasions to act for the best interests of
the city. Having been for thirty year's
engaged in law business, I think myself
fitted for the nosilion. If chosen to fill the
position, I promise to give the office tho
same careful attention which I have given
to it during the term about to close.

Shipping Potatoes South.
The Nebraska State Journal of Tues
day morning states that the potato
growers in northwest Nebraska are
moving their crop as rapidly as the
railroads can furnish cars. In the sand
hill country pierced by the Burlington
nnd Northwestern railroads a heavy
crop of tubers was raised last year,
nnd the larger part " of the crop was
hurried in the ground last fall owing to
uiu siuijjj in tmccs. incsiiiavc uce.11
excavated and the railroads arc now
taxed to furnish cars as rapidly as the
growers wistt to snip. I lie heaviest
potato growing section on the North
western is near Rushvillc, where it was
estimated last fall that eight hundred
car loads were awaiting a market.
Many other stations in that part of the
state also reported heavy yields. On
the Burlington the heavy shipping
points arc Hcmingford, Minntare and
Scott's Bluff. Each of these three
stations is offering about ten cars a
day for shipment and enough stuff is
offered the road to make a heavy po
tato train for the south every day, if
cars' could be supplied.
