A FAIR DEAL.
HEMINGFORD IS STILL
AHEAD ON THE COUNTY
Allianco Asks Judge Westover
to Order the County Commis
sioners to Forthwith Re-con-veno
and Call a Special Elec
tion, all of which his honor
On His Own Motion Judge "West
over orders tho Commissioners
to meot Monday, March 30th,
1896, and- act on the petition
and evidence before them, as
They deem fit and proper.
At 9 o'clock on tlitj 13th insL,
tho Alliance county scat petition
" era,-by -th.oir-nt4ornyrG.r.lI.Sul-
Hvan, appeared before Judgo Wes
tover at Rushrille and applied for
a peremptory writ of mandamus,
ordering the commissioners to im
mediately ro-convuuo and call a
county scat election. Com
missioners Barry and Ilollinrako
were represented by Mr. Barry in
person and Attorneys Gihnan,
McCIung and Hauler. Commis
sioner Duncan was also presen t
with W. G. Simonson as counsel.
Judge Westover listonod patiout
ly to the pleadings of the different
partit'3 and then very properly, de
nied tho unreasonable and illegal
prayer of the relators' attorneys,
but probably considering that the
petitioners had somo rights and
interests in tho matter which
should not bo allowed U) suffer
through tho incompetency of their
counsel, ordered tho commission
ers to reassemblo on March 30,
ISOfi, and resume tho consideration
of the petition whero th ey left off
on January 17, which is entirely
satisfactory to the people of Hem
ingford and vicinity.
Thereupon Sullivan asked tho
court to lim it tho time of hearing
of evidence by commissioners to
six days, which the court properly
refused. This loaves tho status of
tho case at present as follows:
The commissioners are to meet
March 30, remain in session as
long as they duem necessary, and
then decide on the petition accord
ing to tho ovidonce before them.
On Monday cveuiug last, the
parlor doors at tho residence of

said, "now I will teach you how,
to surrender arms, then if you,

stood near. "Hold on, lieuten
ant," he cried; "I'll teach them
that." Ho seized a musket from
a soldier near by, and raising i t
to his shoulder, stood for an in
stant as if in tho act of iiroing
upon an enemy, then lotting it
drop from his hands ho staggored
like a man shot through tho
