submitting the question of herd law to
the people, but if it is t'ue (and I am
about convinced that it is) that he is now
working on the other side, then it is
well that he has withdrawn his name,
and it will also 1 e v 11 fcr him ra vcr to
present his name for any ofi-ie a.n.
The friends ef Mr. 1 avis bad full confi
dence in him before he was nominated
at our convention, but the reports cir
culated in regard, to the eaucus held in
Harrison and the nominating at the- con
vention, created suspicion in the minds
of many that I have heard express them
selves. The "sell out'' down the road
was too much to believe; but since La
vis' withdrawal J" favor of a democrat
aud a radical fence la w advocate, they
can report most anything and the people
will believe it.

Walker and Robinson;
bear Sir As considerable of interest
in manifest in tLit- precinct over the
election of county commissioner, it
would perhaps be of interest to your
many readers to learn the views of our
people. W. A. Raum was the choice of
the entire precinct, but finding that the
people of this valley and Hat creek val
ley could not be united for him, he is
now practically out of the race as our
people want to act in harmony with the
settlers of the basin. 1 have talked to
every voter of Sioux county 1 have met,
upon this subject of ttnitfing with Hat
creek, r.u.1 have so fa.r found only two
opposed to this. J. 51. Robinson will
poll a large vote here if nothing comes
il to stem the present tide of public sen
timent. Lew is Gorlach was in this vicinity re
cently 'to see Mr. Raurri but was disap
pointed os Mr. Rauin is out, ko v.e un
derstand, for a thirty days hunt.
In talking with the White river people
they tell us they will not support a man
for commissioner who will not get down
o!T the fence on one side or the other. It
looks as though no straddlers need ap

Beautiful weather and corn husking

Why on't the Herald and Mr. Satter
lee work for W. A. Raum? The latter
gentleman, we are told, works for Sat
terlce in this way: "Well he was the
only man we had to put up."
At a Republican primary held on L't
tlu ottonwood,-which was a large
gathering - those who would vote for
Representative Gilchrist will run well
"n this part of his district. The people
do not want the chief counsel of the
eastern cattle companies for their r prc
sentative. We've heard from the dance at Mr.
S lasbury's. H was fairly attended ex
cept by the fair x. A little as we ex
pected: the boys all went up Jim reek
and found the lady engaged. We are in
hopes the boys will form the acquaint
ance of more ladies hy the time thei-e ir
Shall it be Herd Law!
The Republican asks the question. He
says he came Iroin a country where herd
law was the rule and his experience un
der that rule was anything but pleasant,
the rattle used to get away from the
herd &r. Now we were from the same
county and will say it was unpleasant
for the Judge for lie was a herd boy and
used to go to sleep op the prairie and let
the cattle get away. It was a little bet
ter than fence law after all. 1 will here
say: the Judge and I have not yet got at
;!i-t what we were created for. 1 bad
."in a- res in cultivation there, but what
could I do with it here with hundreds
of caul'- running at large day and night'?
Oh! no Judge we will vote "against sus-pt-ru'lon
of herd law." The Judge well
knows that if we had herd law we could
break up and put in large crops, win re,
as it is, if we cm prous-t a potito patch
and a small garik n we do v -. il. If t,(!
so-called cattle men wot. Id observe the
present law and corral their cattle at
night, it would not be so bad; we could
guard our crops until we could fence.
But the Judge is working for the inter
ests of eastern stock men, not for Sioux
county. Never mind judge, the people
will speak for themselves.
Just one thing more in regard to hen)
law, to inch that feel disinterested. f
you vote for herd law, you vote for the
advancement of the county, Ix-cause all
farmers who are not al !e to fence can
go ahead and farm all they wish. On
the other hand, we will have to work
around and do the best we can until we
are able to fence.

When a person fails to answer argu
ment with argument but instead resorts
tii calling names and trying to cast re
flections upon the private character of a
political opponent and his friends, it is
conclusive evidence to the minds of fair
thinking people that the ierson has Uen
driven to the wall by argument that is
conclusive and unanswerable.
The kind of campaign argument used
by the Herald shows plainly the moral
stratum occupied by its author. Using
allusive language and vulgarity is only
the fruits of 'former associations: the
otiteroppings of a mind debased by con
tinued contact with evil thoughts and
