The La wes County Journal ofSept. th
comes up from lielow with a very ex
pressive article casting reflections on our
Republican delegation to the Senatorial
and Representative conventions. We
are sorry to have such things said alxmt
our Republican delegates but such is
life. Tlie following is an extract:
"The Senatorial convention at Rush
ville on Wednesday closed a liook
marred by only one black and dirty
Sioux county 'was misrepresented by
two iucapables who delilerately deliver
ed themselves over, body and breeches
to unscrupulous drivers and were voted
like brutes to betray not only the inter
ests of Dawes, Slieridon and Box Butte
counties, but the material interests of
Sioux county as well, for the latter
county is bound to her sisters by ties of
locution and association which cannot
lie cast away, and wuat is the serious
injury of these counties must lie the ser
ious injury of Sioux county as well.
These bright delegates, who b' pure ac
cident and unthinkingness were given so
important a trust, sold and delivered the
welfare of the county which they so
unhappily misrepresented, and the closely
allied friends and neighbors of that coun
ty as well. It was the most brazen,
openiy traitorous ileal winch lias ever
been maneuvered und engineered in
northwestern Nebraska and the men who
accomplished the dirty work the men
who so openly and confessedly betrayed
"nd bartered away the interests of the
people they were instructed to represent
who so brazenly violated their volun
tary pledges and obligations deserve tlie
indignant censure and condemnation of
every honest republican and every hon
est citizen. They are devoid of the at
tributes of honesty and truth, unfit for
uny trust, and unworthy of any" confi
dence or belief, It wns a black and dis
graceful page of political infamy.
It made no dill'erence, however, who
the erson put forward was. The trad
ers were organized to defeat any west
end man, and so Mr. Carley went down
with Colors (lying; honored by the solid
support of Dawes, Sheridan and Box
Butte counties, and defeated by only one
majority. He was deliberately noM out
by Hunter and Davis of Sioux county,
and they were fixed to defeat any man
whom the west end might name.
That justice Was defeated, that the
west end was sold out, was a disgraceful
and dirty job, the opprobrium of which
must rest on the sliouluers or tile men
who were guilty of it and responsible for
Wednesday night after the close of the
Senatorial fight at Rushvillc, and after
the delegations had adjourned to Chad
ron, me hioux county delegation, repre
sented by the "honorable" Mr. Hunter,
went into executive caucus over a mon
te table. Mr. Hunter had four hundred
or five hundred dollars in a big fat roll
which he made a greiit show of. He
Iropped probably $150.00 into the insati
ate tiger's maw before he was through,
and didn't have but $350 left of his bood
le to go home with this morning. The
democratic machine in Harrison which
owns utul commands Mr.' Hunter body
and breeches, bus reason to be proud
that he was valued so high in republican
circles, and that he carried out the dirty
work he was bought for and set to doj
with such dog like fidelity."
HOW THE PEOl'LE'S MOSEV OOKS.
The Editor of the Herald, E. J). Saiter-
lee says in the issue of tlie l"th, that I
had accused the county officers with
soma "irregularities."' No! no! Satter-
lue,' read it again. It means that you in
presenting and swearing to ( lain No. 355
for one hundred dollars swore falsely,
and that false swearing is perjury, and
that a man convicted of perjury shall be
oullneil in the penitentiary, according to
the Compiled Statutes 1887, pg. MM,
If any person having- taken a lawful
oath, or mode lawful affirmation in
any judicial proceeding, or in any oth

firmation Is required, shall upon such

ascribed as the probable cause. Mrs.
