Tho Alliance papers in their
county seat argument speak as
they usually do in everything
else and refrain from answering
the solid argument of the Heii
ald. The Grip says that a ma
jority of its readers want "some
thing else." From what wo can
get out of 4he Grip wo should
judge that the major part of its
readers are not hard to please
for the 'something else" outside
of its county seat insinuations
are very scarce, in fact there is
nothing except R. R. news, ?.nd
if the editor has tho interest of
tho taxpayers of Box Butte
county at heart, it seems to us
it would be well for him to give
some of his valuable space tell
ing tho taxpayers wherein they
will save money by voting for
and agitating a county seat ro
moval. The facts are they have
no argument only we are sti'ong
onough to move the county
seat and by tho Gods wo
are going to do it, regardless of
taxation" or tho consequences.
The American voters have had
thir sort of medicine about long
enough and it is time they were
looking into tho result of their
votes, and not be Flim Flammed
into voting for anything that
happens to come along just be
cause it might suit some friend
of theirs. This is especially true
with tho voters of Box Butto
county. You are on the, vorgo
of prosperity or destruction and
it might bo well for you to select
which course you will pursue.
There is no way to settle these
questions only by the ballot and
in view of this and the future we
carnostly hope every voter will
take special pride in so posting
himself that he will be able to
cast his voto intelligently, and
wtien this is fully done tho pres
ent Court House will not bo
thrown away. The county seat
will remain where it is. Tho
taxes of 1896 will bo reduced and
BoxXButto county will hold the
position that she rightly has
earned the Banner county of
the Northwest. Now voters, in
considering this matter, tako
special pains to look over all
your county papers and see if
The Herald is not advocating
everything that is fair and that
which will effect your future
welfare, and also be suro and see
if tho Alliance papers are not
void of any argument that will
tend to educate you on future
taxation. THE HERALD wants
J" J1 SS1SC
and then vote in tho light of
their knowledge and if three
fifths of tho voters think it will
bo a savins to tho county to
make this change, then and only
then, wo will say that it is prop-
er, right, just, and lair, and is
good financial economy. Be
cause we havo groat faith iu tho
judgment of tho majority of the
American votors. In trying to
post yourselves do not tako any
one's word for anything, but go
to the county records and got tho
true status of the count," and of
tho men who are so very anxious Professor Fonnor and Supt. Our ostooinod friend Alonzo Pioaoait iiciso. It is tiresome to hear the AM-
to increase the taxation and see Neelnnd returned from Lincoln Sherwood of Box liutti county, Mrs. Jns. Wholan has I woo suf- aneo Grip howling about tho phil

tho fairest way possible and wo r. m. Hampton was up from

Well, well, Bro. Sheldon can't
you sco the point. Tho "Alliance
