Commends Sammy Girls.
Editor of The Trlbtino:
I want to say that tho Sammy Girls'
(Mub Is the most enthusiastic crowd of
war relief workers I havo met this
summer. And now they aro going to
convert tholr energy to making surgi
cal supplies to bo sont to the hospitals
In Franco, and I know they'll do n
great work along this lino, as thoy'vo
done for tho Lincoln county boys Tho(
suffering In Franco Is indescribable,
and wo need tho work of overy club I
and society In North Platte at this crit-j
the number of Americans who may bo
killed in France

Grocers llctvrccn Millstones.
Retail dealers in flour aro being
ground botweon the millstones of food
regulations. One regulation requires
that all cars loaded with flour must be
filled to capacity, 60,000 pounds. This
requires utilizing nearly every avail
able inch of space. Another regulation
larger number of bakers and retailers
will havo to buy their flour In less than
carload lota. This means that tho.
freight rato will bo higher and tho cost
of bread and Hour to tho consumer in
creased. j provides that they must not keep flour
I on hand over thirty days. This means
I that they must, if thoy buy flour on
hand by the cnrload, get rid of it at
leal period. Now these girls are going
to have an entertainment to raise mon
ey for war relief and I am asking that
the rate of about fifty 50-pound sacks
a day, and that is a big selling record
either for flour or bread.
The result of tho conflict Is that tho
every patriotic citizen In North Platte
help the girls that their work may ho
a real contribution toward lessening!

We, tho undorslgned, after reading
4n nrMina nnncaring in tho different
news-papers, feel that in Justice to
Sutherland and ourselves, tho follow
ing statement of facts should be given
in tlin nulillc.
. ..ferritin' ttfltll HOIllO Of tllO
J,,,-!!, men of Sutherland, Geo. L
whii, n n. Oordon. C. A. Lau and W.
J. Root went up to Tryon to confer
wiih Mr. Dunn, tho editor of tho Tryon
Graphic, with the idea of trying to gat
Mr. Dunn to buy out tho Sutherland
Free Lance.
For some of tho following reasons
the 'people felt that a chango in tho
newspaper would bo for tho benefit of
Sutherland. At tho tlmo tho First
Liberty Loan Bonds wcro offered for
Bale, one of the above parties who wont
to Tryon, requested tho proHcnt editor
of tho Free Lanco to publish on tho
front pago of his paper a cut advertis
ing tho Llhorty bonds, which was fur
nished them by tho peoplo who furnish
their advertising. Tho editor was not
asked to publish it as an advertisement
for any bank, but with the namo of
both banks as tho places whero tho
bonds could bo 'purchased, and was
oven asked to use tho cut on tho front
page without any names attached, and
receive full advertising rates for same,
but refused to do so.
When tho Sutherland high school
paper was to bo printed it was taken to
our local editor who refused to publish
it, and it was consequently taken to
Hcrshoy and published there. We be
lieve this business should havo staid
in Sutherland.
Llttlo or no publicity was given to
the Red Cross work or tho Red Trlan
glo drive, which matter, wo understand,
was furnished frco of chargo, to such
papers as would print Jt.
As it was understood that tho pros
ont nowspaper plant was for salo,
this fact being brought homo to us by
tho editor himself, and knowing that
Mr. Dunn had tried to purchaso tho
plant last Bummer, wo, In our doslro
to help tho editor securo a purchaser,
and, at tho samo time, securo for our
town a llvo nowspaper man, went to
Tryon to try and get Mr. Dunn inter
ested In tho purchaso of tho Suther
land paper.
No nttcmpt whatever was intended
to In nny way boycott anybody, or to
try to forco anybody to soil below tho
valuo of tholr plant, thoro wns no
intrigue Our interest was mutual in
trying to socuro a purchaser for Mr.
Roynolds for his plant at tho full
valuo, and to Bocuro for ourselves tho
kind of a nowspapor man that wo
think Sutherland is entitled to.
A meeting was called and a largo
numbor of tho business men woro pres
ent. Nobody present attempted to
sot a prlco on Mr. Roynolds plant, no
body had any ill fooling whatovor
against Mr. Reynolds personally, and
tho proposition as finally put up to
Mr. Dunn was, that if ho could pur
chaso tho plant from Mr. Roynolds tho
business men represented thoro would
hack him in tho proposition.

bovo to bo tho facts In tho caBO.

Tho Right of 1'orrcltiire.
Senator James Hamilton Lewis has
presented a bill boforo Congress, pro
posing that tho cltizonshlp papers bo
taken away from disloyal naturalized
citizens of tho United States and for
tho Bonding of theso people back to
tho countries from which thoy camo.
If tho national legislature enacts
this law it will bo a fitting occasion to
provont peoplo apparently unablo to
appreciate citizenship in tho United
States from gaining such status in this
country; and of ridding us of "con
sclontlons objectors," who by thoir
volco and actions endanger tho pcaco
and prosperity of tho nation, who Im
podo tho progross of preparation for
this war of democracy, and who try to
creato public opinion against tho gov
ernment and incito tho peoplo against
pecuniary responsibility and military
necessity which consists In tho urgoncy
of those measures which aro Jndlspon
slblo for socturlng tho quick tormina'
tion of tho war.
Tho peoplo of this country colloct
ivoly and dlstrlbutivoly must learn
that citizenship is a pearl of too groat
a (price ns to bo despised, dishonored
and troadod upon. I
