By a strike in the cotton mills of Lan

The house of representatives of Ohio

wishing to adjourn in order to allow

'people of that state to improve on the
'quality of men they select as legislators.
Special Agent Cooper reported some
thing like $200,000 due fo Hie Sioux who
.were friendly during the uprising at Pine
fedge in 1891. Congress appropriated
one-half -that amount. White men
would make a terrible kick about such
'treatment and it is not to be wondered at
the red n.trr get dis-aiti sited.

'signed the pardon of Capt. A. D. Yocum,

that act Gov. Boyd will be commended
by thousands of people, Rot only in his
bwn state, but wherever ti; fact's to Hie

human life is- to' be' regretted and as a
rule punished' there are some things that
ban be done and which are crimes of the
most daw tartly nature and yet there is

contemptible purpetrators, and it is then
that it becomes the duty Of the natural

steps as will prevent the Ghoul-like crea

The nlsli tiich always follows the
opening of a MW tract of land by the
government for settlement always causes
people to wonder why those desiring to
secure government land do not take ad
vantage of the land1 open to settlement
The only solution of the problem is that
ihe preparation of the government to
open a tract of land gives the locality a
good deal of notoriety and people get an
idea that it is better than any other land
6pen to settlement which is an error.
The fact m that Sioux county alone coo
4tiM80$MO ac of government land
yet subject to hottestead entry which is
a good' 6$ better- than that receutly
opened for' MttMqdM? (tf which there
was socb a scramble.' All that is necea
torf far for people to be informed of the
fOMa in Uie eat and they Wirt come here

The Republican Oiiut j Convention.
Tlie republican county conventions of
pa-st years in Sioux county have been a
good deal out ' 1 the general order, but
the one held ou lust Saturday exJle-.I
anything ever witnessed, both in luck of
numbers and rank jobbery.
In Bowen precinct the fight was
Walker and Hough against anti-Walker
and Hough, but by tactics known to
such political shysters the Walker-Hough
delegation was elected by two votes.
When the convention day arrived it
was found tliat primaries had been helJ
in but two other precincts. Running
Water sent John A. Green with author
ity to cast the full vote of the precinct
delegation, and S. R. Story represented
Antelojie precinct J. W. Robinson, of
Andrews, was present and Eli Smith, of
Bodarc, was in town.
John A. Green was elected chairman
and P. B. Bitrelow secretary. J. H. Bar-
tell, S. R. Story and J. W. Robinson
were apM)inted a committee on creden
tials. The committee reported the dele
gations from Bowen, Antelope and Run
ning Water precincts and recommended
that J. W. Robinson and Eli Smith be
authorized to cast the vote of their re
spective precincts. tins report was
signed by all three members of commit
tee. When the report was read Mr. Story
made a motion that Messrs. Robinson
and Smith be allowed to cast the vote of
their respective precincts. George
Walker was running the Bowen precinct
delegation, which was the property of
himself and Hough and he gave them
their instructions aud no one seconded
the motion. Chairman Green requested1
J. II. Bartell to take chair anil this lie de
clined. He then called Mr. Story to the
chair and taking the floor seconded the
motion to seat Smith and Robinson.
Walker instructed the chair that such a
thing could not be doue and so the mat
ter stood. A motion was then made to
strike out that part of the report of the
committee and that was earned. The
fact was that had Robinson and Smith
been seated the little game of Walker
and Hough could not have been carried
out and so they proceeded to stop them at
the start, rather than risk their chance
of being elected delegates to the district
and state conventions.
George Walker and Eli Smith were
elected delegates to the state conven
tion and E. G. Hough and A. R. Dew to
A. R. Dew was elected chairman of
the county central committee and W. IL
At the conventions Messrs. Hough and
Walker can have the satisfaction of
knowing that they were elected by one
precinct At home they have added one
more proof that they do not care one bit
for the republican party or its interests.
It is in line with acts of their predeces
sors in the conduct of the party affairs.
There is no doubt that the reason repub
licans did not turn out and hold primar
ies was because they are heartily dis
gusted witfc such men as Hough and
Walker and want no more to do with
them. The disreputable methods re
sorted to by those who have been in con
trol of the affairs of the republican party
in Sioux county has made the county,
which should be republican, so that the
state ticket at the last election only re
ceived 152 votes, or about three-sevenths
of the vote cast, and the action ?.t the
convention last Saturday and the shabby
treatment accorded the delegates from
the country precincts is not at all calcu
lated to strengthen the party lines.
The only good thing the convention did
was the bouncing of Walker and Hough
from the county central committee and
the election of A. R. Dew a)s chairman.
Mr. Dew is also authorized to name the
committeeman for each precinct Ashe
is a republican from principle and not
simply to down some one or gain a little
public notoriety regardless of the cost to
the party, Mr. Dew has it in his power to
do more to get the party in shape in
Sioux county than has any one man ever
had. By making proper selections in the
matter of committeemen he can regain
for the party the good wrll of tire repub
licans in the coc'ntfy precincts and if
they see that they are to be treated fairly
they will take an interest in party work
ami attend the primaries and therebv
raise the banner Of republicanism from
the dirt and filtti in which it has been
trailed by Hough,- Walker and those of
their kind and return-to it the dignity to
which it is entitled,-and all w ill rejoice
to see Hough and Walker relegated to
the political oblivion' which- they so
Now let every mau who is a republi-
Lpan from principle get in line and assist
tlie chairman in l is work. It is only by
a united effort that good can be accom
plished and now is the time to do good,
honest, earnest work for the party that
has done more for the progress of the na
tion than all other parties combined.
! Tlie democratic state convention' last
week proved that party to be in a pretty
badly split condition. There was
doublo-lieafled' delegation from Douglass
county, resulting from a split in the
county convention. It was charged that
delegates favorable to Gov. Bovd had
been secured by purchase arid repeaters.
While tlie state convention sealed the
Boyd men it certainly does not reflect
any credit to tlie chief executive to have
such a state of affairs, neither do the
men who' represent his faction in his
home county .indicate that he is upheld
wy tM iat mmm of m pawy."

There lias been a good deal of feeling
all over the fifteenth judicial district in
favor of JiMlg Kinkaid as a candidate
for Congress. Last week parties in Cliad
ron asked him if he would 1 a candidate
and he answered by telegram stating
tluit he would not That leaves l.i.

thev please. The indications are that the
northwest irt of the district will sii
xrt I .'orrinKtou and the contest at pres
ent appears to have settled down to Ifc-r-
rington and Whitehead and the question ,
to be decided is which w ill prove the
stronger man at the j-olls. That is the j
object every good republican should
have and if adherence is had to that there
is no doubt of republican success next
The difliculty between the cattlemen
and the rest of the pojiulation of Wyom
ing has Wen settled as far as open war
fare is concerned. The cattlemen started
out with an annul force to do upall who
were not their kind of jeople. They
killed a few straggling settlers whom
they designated as rustlers, but they
soon found themselves surrounded by
several hundred of the men whom they
had started out to murder in cold blood,
all well armed and determined to defend
their lives and honied. The probabilities
are that there would have been few, if
any, of the cattlemen's outfit to tell the
tale had not the governor called on the
president of the United Slates for troops
to put a slop to the trouble. The troops
got there and arretted the entire cattle
men's party and put them in the guard
louse and will turn them over to the
civil authorities to lie dealt with accord
ing to Inw. Public sentiment was at
first greatly in favor of the cattlemen,
but their high-handed attempt to either
murder or run out of the country all
who might interfere with their use of the
vast tracts of government lami for a
range soon turned the tide of puolic sen
timent and the press of Wyoming is al
most unanimous in its condemnation of
the "regulators" as tli cattlemen style
themselves, and demand that the full
penalty of the law be meted out to them.
The same spirit has existed all during
the settlement of the great prairies. It
was because he attempted to drive a set
tler out of his range that Gov. Boyd is
said to have received a dose of lead a
number of years ago. It was the same
spirit that caused the murder and burn
ing of Mitchell and Ketchum in Custer
county a few years ago and many other
acts of violence and oppression have been
committed all over the west The fenc
ing of large tracts of government land by
the cattlemen caused the government a
good deal of trouble a few years ago and
in fact the whole history of the range
business is anything but creditable to
those engaged in it and now tliat the
catlemen of Wyoming have been guilty
of acts wholly unwarranted by law
strong and certain steps should be taken
by the authorities to put a stop to a bus
iness which does not recognize the rights
of others. The troubles in Wyoming
will doubtless be the cause of breaking
up the stock association of that state and
will hasten the end of the range system
of cattle raising by several years. The
business h a greatdetrimenl to those who
raise cattle and properly care for them
and that class of people will rejoice to
see the range cattle disappear from the
