Enoch Boyer for Sheriff.
Another change has taken place in
the candidacy for sheriff on the fusion
ticket. When Frank Gilleran, who was
nominated by the democrats and
people's party, withdrew from the
ticket, the name of H. E. MacCray
was substituted, but after due deliber
ation. Mr. MacCray has announced
that he finds it detrimental to his busi
ness interests to go into politics and
hence he respectfully declines the
nomination. But, as the old saw has
it, "There's as good fish in the sea as
ever were caught," and the two parties
have hit upon an old-time and popular
resident of Box Butte county for the
office of sheriff. Mr. Enoch Boyer is
the man, and there are very few Her
ald readers who are not acquainted
with the gentleman. Mr. Boyer is a
is a man of excellent character and
thoroughly qualified for the position.
He came here from Wayne county,
J Iowa, seventeen years ago and located
a few miles east of Alliance, where he
owns a good ranch. He is a man of
integrity and by his untiring industry
has been successful. Mr. Boyer moved
to Alliance about a year ago and en
gaged in the bottling works business
with Fred Harrison who are today
doing an excellent business. As to the
capability of this new nominee there is
no question. Just in the prime of life'
39 years of age, he is in excellent health
and in every way capable. There is
no doubt but what Mr. Boyer will
prove a popular candidate and make a
