The Excutivo Committee of tlio Alliance Boomerang are out in a circular letter which shows their red-handed cusseduess moro than over. It is presumed that this circular letter was sent to each of their petitioners for the purpose of still carry ing out their hollinh designs, but such slush'as this circular let ter contains, is not whit tho farm era and tax payers want.

Wo still have another sample of their "facts correctly recited'' and their willingness to stoop so low as to oven blight the name of some of the best citizens which today live in Box Butte county, by casting slurs at our fellow workers, I. E. Tush, John O'Kcefe, L. Sampey and G. C. Alexander and others.

Siders of Alliance, has our thanks for compliment ary tickets to hear tho world re nowned EH Perkins; (Melville D. Laudon) lecture at the Phelan opera house, Saturday ovening, Feb. 15th. Mr. Perkins subjects who have charged themselves with the Herculean task of re moving the county seat to Alli iwice, - have . been Hooding .tho country with canary-colored cir culars in which they givo a garbled statement of the status of the question and of tho recent action of the county commission ers. Had it been printed on pa per to correspond with the state ment which it contains, there would have been a large demand for tar paper. Referring to tho action of the commissioners in , postponing tho hearing until , Juno, this saffron-hued document contains this quotation from the stump speech of some sand lot agitator, "This was one of tho most high-handed outrages over , perpetuated upon this or any , country, and if this is not re dressed by square actions" (won der what they mean by that?) there would be h -1 to pay, or words to that, offect. This sounds well, don't it, coming from a town which on March 4th, 1890, htuffed the ballot box to the ex tent of over 100 fraudulent votes, : and which would do it again should opportunity otter, thus outraging, tramplhtg under fool this inalienable and dearest right of tho American citizen.

TIiq man from Nova Suotln Likus sp much iiiteicat In iht imtjuu of to make tho town the county seat of Box Butte county. Tins agree ment was made in spite of tho fact that the Lincoln Land com pany exclusively ownod tho townsito of Alliance, and "that it would bo doubly to the intorost of that company should Alliance beconn the county soat. The ajjraomont made between these two companies was carried out. and Nonpareil, romoto from tho railroad, the then present county seat, was defoated in tho three cornered contest between Alli ance, Hemintrford and Nonpareil, and Homingford secured the prize, notwithstanding 1110 ntut . that Alliance had five hundred j I more votes pollod than it had voters. Tho recent county seat I light, that has been raging in .that county, was instigated by 1 Alliance in an endeavor to wrest the county seat from Iloming ford. It was bosun at a time when tho farmers wero all away from their farms, which is gen erally the case during tho winter months, during which time they are pursuihg other lines of bus iness, making a livelihood in the mines iu the Black Hills, and such other work as they eantind. In this effort of Alliauco, al though, as before stated, it would bo greatly to tho interest of the Lincoln Lund company to havo the county soat at that point, yet they stood uutlinch iugly to their agreement with 1 the Interstate Townsito company, ' and have rendered no assistance or encouragement to Alliance in its efforts. This is in keeping with the established reputation with that company for a consci entious compliance with tho very letter of overy agreement. that thev wore opposed to tho ef fort made by Alliance to add on to the county a debt that would b burdetisoiu in thnto depressed financial timed. It is practically a favorable ending for Jlemingford. The latter town will always re main the county scat of Box Butto county. There can be no question on thut point. It is in the center of the county, accessible to all cit izens, and the force at work to hold it' there is a strong as to be absolutely unassntlable. Alliance spent about $7,000, it w .said, in its efforla the other time. It ii doing the same thing now ami it is likely to impoverish those j who are at the head of the moVe-meut.--Edgemont Express. sz-- i " A.T WILDY'S!
