"Silent as Clams" is the head line to a
little editorial paragraph which appeared
in last week's issue of The Herald atfd
which was directed to The Times editor
and the writer of Marsland items. We
feel sure that The Times man is able to
speak for himself, and as for the writer we
will say that early in life we were taught
to reverence and respect grey hairs and
bald heads, (no personalities intended in
either clause, Mr. Editor,) and further
more we feel sure that we voice the opin
ion of many when we say that our friend,
Capt. Akers, shows to much better advan
tage in his lecture "To the Holy City"
than he does in open campaign letters.
The Heratd seems to have a fondness for
reproaching letters, for the years ana not
so far removed that its readers have for
gotten the nauseating ''Pilkington" letters
whose vituperations were hurled at this
same Capt. Akers, who was then running
on the city ticket for mayor of Alliance
with a pronounced temperance platform.
We try, always, to give praise where
praise is due, but reserve the right to
keep "silent as clams" when we choose to

Father Butter came down from the ex

cratic ticket, with the exception of con
gressman. He said he was here to vote
for "that man Kinkaid " Father Butler
must have missed getting that copy of the
Heratd which contained the Akers letter.
The republican ticket carried with the
exception of county attorney. The demo
crats rallied nobly to the support of their
candidate, young Edwin Crites of Chad
ron, and it is said they even influenced
some republicans to vote for him, and as a
consequence he ran far ahead of his
