The disgust of Senator Penrose be
causo of his colleague, Senator La
Follette, having been guilty of "con
milting with Hie edilora of yellow jour
nals find uplift magazines" is not nt nil
astonishing. The very idea of uplift is
nauseous to the Pennsylvania states-man-
Tho only uplift they know any
thing about in the ranks of his political
machine is to lift up the lid of the pub
He treasury when opportunity offers
and help themselves.
present constituted, is the great barrier in
the path ot political progress in this coun
try. In the election of United States sen
ators by direct vote of the people lies the
only hope for a restoiation of that body to
lis former position of dignity and useful
ness as a part of the government machin
ery. An unbiased analysis 6f the Payne
and Aldrich bills as compared with
the Diugloy bill will convince any hon
est investigator that the tariff revision
ists are not making any great reduc
tion in the tax on the necessities of
life for tho poor man. Nine articles,
namely: Men's shoes, iron knives and
forks, hams, bacon, cabbage, sugar,
cornmea), watch movements and tin
roofing show a reduction In the Payne
bill over tho Dingley law. But the
Aldrich bill promptly and expeditiously
restores tho Dingley law duty on hams,
bacon, cabbage and iron knives and
forks- Things to cat and tools to cat
them with will be just as dear for tho
workingman as they ever have been
when this tariff tinkering is over with.

we have been linviug this spring- lie

Alliance Defeats Crawford
High School Alumni Banquet
If President Taft should now say
that ho did not intend in his promiso
last fall, if olected, to convene con
gress, in special session, for the pur
pose of revising the tariff schedules
mainly downward, the country would
not believe him. Tho country did
understand him to mean, that, while
some duties in the existing tariff ought
to be raised, a majority of them ought
to be lowered' It docs not matter
what Henry Cabot Lodgo may now
assert. Mr. Lodge belongs to the re
actionary wing of his party- The hon
est republican papers contradict Mr-Lodge-
That the eighteen unfaithful demo
cratic senators vho repudiated party
'principles and platform pledges when
the scent of tho pork barrel got into
their nostrils do not fairly re resent
the views or wishes of their constit
uents, jb clearly shown by the tono-of
a majority of influential southern pa
pers. Mr. Taft and his friends need
not count too much on breaking up tho
solid south by a distribution of tariff
pork and oratorical taffy. The south
is too well grounded in its faith in
democratic principles to be led astray.
And the infamous eighteen will have to
face an aroused and indignant constit
uency when they get back home.
The Alliance High School Alumni
Association held their second annual
banquet at tho residence of Mrs. W.
W. Norton last Tuesday evening. The
tnblcs were decorated in pink and
white carnations and at the plates there
were very pretty menu cards and also
place cards made of ribbons with a
card attached, the ribbons at each place
being the colors of the class to which
the recipient belonged, and on the
card wcro neatly Written the name of
the person, tho year of graduation
and the class motto for the year,
Howard Jameson was toastmaster
and the following toasts were responded
to: Commencement, Opal Russell;
The Faculty, Earl D. Mallerv; The
Alumnus, Edith Swan; Reminiscences
of Class '09, Frank Rumer; Tho High
School Student, Prof. D. W. Hayes.
After the banquet a business meeting
was held and the following officers
were elected for the coming year:
Edith Swan, Pros.; Howard Jameson,
V. Prcs.; O. Blanche Macdouald, Sec
and Treas. Every one had a very en
joyable time and a unanimous vote of
thanks was extended t6 the Ladies'
Auxiliary for the splendid way in
which they entertained the Alumni Association.
End of a Noble Life
The diamond Cast of town was the
place and Sunday afternoon the time
selected by Alliance to hang the foolish
sign on the Crawford ball team. It
was but the second game of the season,
yet was played in mid-season style; in
only one inning, the second, was the
error bug in evidence. Dr, Copsey
pitched in his usual cool, effective
manner. Salenc, first base, had the
old saw twisted to read, "If at first
you don't succeed you'll never get to
second," and he was ably assisted i'l
this by the unerring whip of Catcher
Bohncr, whose snappy playing made it
as hard for Crawford to reach second
as it is for the Republican senate to
reduce the tariff- Smith, second base,
pulled off an unassisted double play
that-was spectacular, and also planted
the ball against the center Held fence
for a three-base hit- Carey's work at
third was good, and he is credited witli
n home run, having swatted the ball
into territory closely adjacent to the
Burlington tracks. In fact, Alliance
has a team with speed that promises
splendid ball this summer. Wilson
pitched an excellent game for Crawford-
The attendance was good and
the score g to 3 in favor of Alliance.

What can be expected in the way of
legislation for the interests of the common
people from a body composed largely of
men who have made vast wealth by op
pressing or exploiting their fellow men?
What reason is there to expect any large
measure of helpfulness to the masses to be
framed or passed by the United States
senate? "The Millionaires Club" it has
frequently been called, and with reason.
But a scant few of this body's members
have any real, genuine interest in any
measure having for its purpose the amelio
ration of the burdens of the poor and op
pressed. The New York Evening Post has never
been accused of harboring excessive hos
tility to corporations or "captains of in
dustry." Therefore, we may take the
Post's word on any subject in which they
are concerned as being at least unbiased
against them. The Post has been making
an investigation of the records of United
States senators as individuals, and it lines
them up as to business and professions as

ago of the demise of his brother, R. O.
Johnston, who died at Garnett, Kans.,
on the ist inst. The deceased was 61
years old and leit a wife and nine
children, most of whom are grown, to
mourn his death. There are also three
brothers and one sister left. He had
been in poor health for several weeks
but had somewhat recovered and his
death came as a surprise to his ac
quaintances. He is the father of Geo.
F. Johnston, formerly a brakeman out
of Alliance, who left here about two
years ago and with whom many of The

The funeral was held at Garnett on
June 2nd. He had been almost a life
long member of the United Presbyter
ian church, having been converted and
joined that church when a boy. He
led a consistent christian life and was
highly esteemed by those who knew
him best. His iufluence while living
was on the side of right and since his
death will continue lor good.

At present there are some different
weights of rail in tho yard., They vary
as follows: On the old track there is
56 pound steel, on some other lines it
is 65 pound, on track No. 1 it is 75
pound steel and on the main line it is
85 pound steel. The old 56 pound
steel is wearing almost as well as any
of the heavier steel in the yards here,
but it is pretty light although it was

Alliance Junior Normal T Juncr7: -n

county has many teachers in attendance
and is enrolled for work in the normal her
Co. Supt. Dellinger visited the normal
Tuesday. Supt. Dellinger is one of the
county superintendents in this part of the
state who never fails to visit the normal.
Miss Clara R. Gilford of York, who
represents the Nebraska School Review,
and Prof. Gibson of Gibbon, who repre
sents the Nebraska Teacher, visited the
school Tuesday and Wednesday 61 this
week in behalf of their respective papers.
Under the very efficient management of
Supt. Hayes, the registration of students,
the distribution of text books and the as
signment of lessons was effected Monday
and on Tuesday morning the school opened
with as little confusion as though it had
been in session for a month.
Several of the married ladies of the
town have caught the school spirit and
have enrolled for work in the normal. We
should be glad, indeed, to have others en
roll. We think we can be of service to
you and that you will feel that it is good to
be with us.
The enrollment for first grade and life
certificate branches is larger than it has
ever been heretofore and shows the pro
gressive spirit of the teachers in this part
of the state. It is our impression that
this is the only Junior Normal in the state
where the life certificate subjects are
The faculty this year, with two excep
tions, is the same as last year and is as
follows: Principal, D. W. Hayes; regis
trar, Supt. Ora Phillips; instructors, Prof.
C. W. Philpott of the Lincoln high school;
Supt. Woodard of Havelock; Supt. Wilson
of Albion; Supt. Pate of Sidney; Miss
Frazier of Alliance; and Mrs. Rustin of
the Lincoln schools.
School opened Monday with the largest
first day enrollment in the history of the
Alliance Junior Norntal School. The en
rollment last year was the largest to that
time and it was hardly expected that the
enrollment this year would equal that of
last year, so Principal Hayes is highly
gratified with the attendance. The en
rollment the first day last year was 16S,
while that for this year is 170, a gain of
two. The number, who enrolled for insti
tute only, last year, was 46, and the num
ber this year is 30. This means that the
actual Junior Normal enrollment for this
year is 18 more than for lasttyear. The
Alliance Junior Normal wai the largest, in
the state last year and we hope it will be
the largest again this year.

sandy land and if they are successful
in getting a good stand it will demon

Nolll Boon, one of the big cattle men

450 of them and thete will probably be
250 or 300 more to deliver by next
September, which will clean out all of
that Hue of stook that he has at his
ranch, southwest of Alliance, although
he will have a big bunch of steers and
dry cows left.
Mr. Boon made The Herald office a
pleasant call while in the city last Sat
urday, and informed us that he has
been in this country twenty-one years
pose of officially accepting the road
between here and Lisco. Mr, Mc
Keown informed us that the steel has
been laid to within ten miles of North

the road will not cross the river into
Bridgeport but will be on this side of

that town. In all probability the
road will be pushed beyond Northport.
