Tho result was about as predicted we mean guessed, as we made no predic tions in Tho Herald, except that the total vote was lighter than we had expected. "We missed our guess the farthest on county clerk outside of Alliance. MMtn cntifitrinnf t'nes o4 inmr1 r iti favor of giving the present in cumbant, who is serving his first term, another two years; this, together with the fact that tliG democratic candidate was not well acquainted throughout tho county, gave the republican nominee a large majority in the country precincts, although tho vote on that oftice was close in Alliance. The defeated candi date takes his defeat cheerfully and is not knocking on anybody because he failed in the election. The democratic candidates for treasurer, sheriff, judge, super intendent of public instruction and surveyor were elected, and the republican candidates for clerk, coroner and commissioner received a majority of the votes cast for those offices, the demo crats having no candidates for the last named office.

Russell -Westcott It is a pleasure to chronicle the wed ding of another highly respected young couple, one of whom, the groom, has been a resident of this city for many years. Last evening at eight o'clock, j at the residence of the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Russell, Rev, J. M. Huston pronounced the words that united for life the destinies of Mr. Marion C. Russell of Alliance and Miss Minnie M. We&tcott of Oshkosh, Nebr. Only a few of the most inti mate friends of the contracting parties were present, including the parents of the groom and Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Stevenson, relatives ot the bride. The happy couple left this morning for their homestead, near the North Platte river, fifty miles southeast of Alliance, where they will make their home. The Herald wishes them all the happiutss possible to humanity, and the prosperity which they no doubt anticipate in married life. Godfrey- Dloomfield. Rev. Alvin L. Godfrey, a recent grad uate of Xenia Seminary, at present sup plying the church at Alliance, Nebr., is to be married Tuesday, Oct. 26, to Miss Maude D. Dloomfield, at the home of her parents at Albia, Iowa. The above is taken from the Oct. 26th issue of the Christian Instructor, the of ficial organ of thb United Presbyterian church, published at Philadelphia. We have no further information in regard to the happy event, but suppose, of course, that it occurred at the appointed timp, and BOX BUTTE possible to get anything like complete returns before tho of ficial count has been made. Prom what information we have wo think probably there is about an even break in this county on candidates for tho supreme court, while tee republican can didates for regents of the state university probably have a con siderable majority. We have a page of state and general olection news furnished by tho American Press Associa tion and sent out from Omaha yesterday. Later news is to tho effect that tho result' in tho state is still in doubt, with tho chances favoring the election of Judge Sullivan and a possibility that the other two democratic candidates for justices of the supremo court may have also been elected. The latest news that we have show Judge Faw cett to be the low man of the tlireo republican candidates, so (hat if but two of them are elect ed they will probably be Judges Barnes and Sedgwick. FollowingMs the unofficial voto of Box Butte county offices, with the vote on some candidates missing in one precinct. Next week we will give tho official count, including the vote on can didates for state as well as coun ty offices: 4. h fe u a a a a a o o Q .c & CJ .a tc o G 34 81 90 33 00 38 50 03 30 00 32 57 39 51 44 03 27 81 01 11 34 13 13 4 17 14 14 35 32 15 5 11 11 8 14 0 29 18 80 11 80 10 400 579 119 479 20 10 701 25 14 29 18 31 11 5 8 282 059 832 018 438 559 409 035 331 20 827 21 7 10 03 52 53 05 14 24 11 27 8 20 180 15 22 15 14 21 7 11 90 32 18 20 23 0 3 13 8 19 54 13 33 12 29 804 50 45 05 31 10 18 8 13 24 0 9 10: 9 408 545 31 90 17 hasten to extend congratulations and best wishes.

Tho extra work and loss of time from reg ular work during a political campaign in terferes seriously with the business ot n local newspaper, One of tho things that wo rcgrot most is tho unltentional omis sion of interesting news itoms, nnd one of the most aggravating omissions of last week was that of an announcement of the birth of a daughter to Mr, and Mrs. S.

It is hoped for the good name of Alliance that people will turn out in numbers sufficient to warrant tho company when going away to sing the praises of Alli ance as possessing a citizenship cap able of appreciating a good show when one worthy of their liberal patronage is produced. Do not wait until the day after and then wish you had gone when everyone present tells about what a fine show it was, but get tickets aud see it for yourselves, Mike Vaughn has rented the Car miclmel building, first door west of the Golden Rod Bottling Works, and will begin tomorrow morning, repairing and renovating the same preparatory to moving his grocery store into it next week.

"Gone on Before." Tho ruthless hand of death entered tho home of R. II, West, northeast or Al liance, on Wednosday, Oct. 27, and took therefrom the wifo nnd mother, who as queen of tho homo had for so many years made It one of the happiest in tho land. In extending sympathy to tho bereaved family The Herald gives sincere expression to what we feel, and wishes for them tho consolation of Christian love nnd faith that in tlmos ot grief nnd pain sustained tho dopartnd ono, Lydia Ann Savelle was born April 8, 1854, """I died October 27, 1909. On March ig, 1873, sho was married to R. H. West, in Nemaha county, Nebr., where she had resided since five years of age. In tho year 1892 she came with her husband and family to Box Butte county from which time she has resided on tho home stead farm until tho time of her demise. At the age of fifteen years sho united with the Methodist Episcopal church nnd lived a consistent Christian life, being a mem ber in recent years of tho FnirvJew church. The funeral service was conducted from her lato home by her pastor, Rev. I. E. Nolto, on Saturday, Oct. 30, interment being made in Greenwood cemetery, . An immense concourse of people testified to their esteem and love for tho deceased by attending the last sad rights of respect, the funeral being one of the most largely attended of any ever held in tho county, some of those in attendance coming from a groat distance. There were forty-seven vehicles in the funeral procession, All of the children, two nons and two daughters were at home at tho time of her death. Death of Mrs. Gilshannon Just as. wo are going to press 'with, this issue of Tho Herald, new,9v reaches us of the death, nt 1 p.m. today, of Mrs. Thomas GilBhaunon, after a lingering illness of cancer, Mary Ann Hayes was born at Wood stock, Canada, August g, 1858. Sho was man led to Thomas Gilshannon, October 10, 1887, ftfGlcii. Rock.'Wyo,, and came to Nebraska that year. To them wen.' horn three children, name ly: Fonuy Elizabeth, July 22, 1888; Ellen Mary, Dec. 3, 1889; and Thomas Kingford, May 12, 1892; all of whom were born in Alliance. Tho funeral will be held Saturday, Nov. 6, at 9 n.m., from Holy Rosary church, maBS being said by Father McNamara. For a long time the deceased had suffered from that dread disease, can cer, when death came to her relief, as stated above. A very large circle of friends and acquaintances will wish, as does The Herald, to offer condolence to tho bereaved relatives,. The Perry Carter Co., Cartoonist and Soloist ' The entertainment was well attend ed, the house beiug crowded. The turning of a picture of sublime art into one of the ridiculous with only a few strokes of the artist's pencil shows better than can be told of the develop ment of an artistic temperament by hard study and porsistent effort. Mr. Carter's last picture of the evening's entertainment was especially worthy of note, being a picture of pXsunset scene in colorB with an American beauty rose in the foreground, all of which was drawn upside down. The solo work fcy Mrs. Carter was also very fine and shows exceptional talent, If this, the fust number of the Lyce um Entertainment course be a sample of the numbers which are to follow, the people of Alliance will owe a debt of gratitude to those who are instru mental in bringing people of such char acter and talent to our city. Thompson-Hoy At the Baptist parsonage in Alliance on Nov. 3, 1909, Mr. Cbas. E. Thomp son, a prominent ranchman of this vicinity, and Miss Bessie A. Hoy were united in holy wedlock, Rev. J. M. Huston officiating. They were accom panied by a brother of the bride, P. W. "Hoy. Although not acquainted with the contracting parties, tho editor understands that thoy are estimable people and most highly respected by their acquaintances, and we are glad to offer congratulations and best wish es. The water bond proposition in Alii ance. that is the proposition to issue bonds for the extension of the city water system, we suppose carried by an almost unanimous vote.
