Guide rovoals the fact that her

aro again preparing to mount the

windod old hobby horso of CounMroctin' the Hunter school this win

think that tho small portion of
Alliance population who favor
tho renewed agitation of this
question, would havo learned bjr
past experience that the majority
of tho people of Box Butto Coun
ty aro entirely satisfied with
their present County Seat Hom
ingford. A contest was had, fair
on Hemingford's sido, though
undeniable attempts at fraudu
lent practices woro made by Al
liance's partisans. It was decid
ed that Hemingford bo tho coun
ty seat of Box Butte comity.
Wo do not deny that if Alliance
wero mo uountv aeat it would
b'e moro convenient for a fow Al-
lianco lawyers. But is the desire
of tho majority of tho people of
Box Butto County to ho set aside

offers an opportunity for cheap
Hemingford is in the center of
tho county. Tho interests of tho
major part of tho people of tho
County demand that Hemingford
remain the County Seat. Tho.
town of Hemingford has present
ed to tho County a fino Court
House. Thera is thus no exponso

' 'representative business men"
passed a resolution declaring
that if the county seat bo remov
ed to Alliance, it was not tho in
tention to issuo bonds to build an
expensive Court House.
In tho first placb wo would like
to inquire, by what authority these
"representative business men" pro
tend to guide the destines of Box
Butte County to state what tho
County will or will not do?
Furthermore, though their dec
laration be true, what difference
would it mako to tho tax-payers of
tho county whether they pay taxes
to keep up the interest on bonds
or pay rent for county offices,
which the abandonment of the
present Court House at Heming
ford would necessitate? The elec
tion which it is proposed to havo
would entail an expense of up
wards of a thousand dollars. In
these hard times tho people should
think twice before burdening them
selves with this additional indebt
edness. But wo havo no fear that
this matter will be moro than
"a tempest in a tea-pot." Tho
West has had enough of these
senseless county scat fights, where
by somo unwisely ambitious town
seeks to put aside tho will of tho
people of the county for its per
Alliance has the railroad round
house and machine shops to which
it is justly entitled; Hemingford
has tho county seat which by vir
tue of its location and choice of
tho people, it should remain in un
disputed possession of. There
should bo no animosity between
wo two towns. Jjot us live in
peace and harmony allowing this
county seat matter to bo only a
memory of the past.
