Bad Blood Ball Game
The game of base ball at the Alliance
grounds last Sunday between the homo
team and Bridgeport resulted in a vie
try for the former by a score of o to
j. There was a slight mix-up with the
players and Umpire- Murphy which for
a tunc seetilod to be liable to terminate
in n rough-and-tumble fight, but for
tunately Such 'was not the case. As
long as there Will be ball cantos and
umpires there will bo danger of trouble
of. this kind. Wo have no apologies to
make and pf course detest anything of
the kind that happened last Sunday
but that won't guarantee that it will
not happen again. Base ball excites
the players as well as the spectators
and when men are in that state of craze
they are ready for a fight at all times.
That's all there is to base ball most of
the time. It's the true American spirit
of hilaritv and wc can't live without
being scrappy.

What Is County Option?
A number of our readers have, asked
us this question, as it is a prominent
issue in the present state campaign.
County Option means the enactment
of a law that will give all voters of a
county the right to vote "Yes" or "No"
on the proposition of saloons, or no sa
loons in the county.
AH incorporated towns have a right
to say whether the taloon shall be li
censed, or not, but the farmers and
ranchmen have no vote on the issue
under our present "Local Option"
law. All property owners in a couuty
help pay taxes with which to defray
court costs arising from the liquor traf
fic, without receiving any benefit from
the saloon license. It is contended by
many that this is unfair, as it appears
to be taxation without representation.
An effort will be made to pass a Couu
ty Option law in our next legislatuie.

family is visiting relatives at Bridge
port. Mr, Wilcox stated that they
have returned to remain in western
Nebraska but as yet have not decided
on the town in which to make their
home but it will probably be in the
North Platte valley. He liked Oregon
pretty well, especially the climate, but
his wife was never pleased with that
country. He says you can travel a
long distance before you can find a
better town than Alliance. Mr. Wil
cox may'decide to engage in the news
paper business again, having spent sev
eial years in the woik before he first
came to Alliance.

house bad a pleasant chat in the office
of this democratic journal. Moses ex
pressed bis regret to Judge Cornier
for the manner iti which the republi
cans of Iowa defeated him for renomi
nation at the recent primaries in that
state, but Mr. Conner felt that the
spirit ot dissension that prevailed
among republicans in the tenth Iowa
district was general all over the United
States. It i9 a year when the Republi
can party is disrupted because of its
sins. But such is the history of all
political parties sooner or later.
