hours, Just now the people of Box
Butte county are considerably ng-
itatod ovor the question of a ro
inovol of tho county seat. Hem
ingford, a beautiful little city, lo
cated neur the geographical center
of tho county, is the prcsont seat
of county government. It war lo
cated thoro by the sensible choice
of the people of tho county, after
tlio downfall of old Nonpareil, but
Allianco. after gaining the distinc
tion of a division station of tho B.
& M. railroad, then tho U. S. Land
Office, her peoplo have looked
with covetous eyes upon tho coun
ty seat, and tho time having expir
ed during which they wero prohib
ited by law from making au effort
to movo tho coveted seat of gov
ernment, thoy began the agitation
last summer. Tlioy circulated a
petition praying the county com
missioners to call an election, and
a month ago it was presented. At
the samo time tho Hemingford
people and fanners generally, pre
nented a counter petition. As it
was an important mattor the board
did not grant or rofuso the petition
but passed it over to some future
time. The Alliance people becamo
anxious and at once commenced
mandamus proceedings to eoinpal
tho board to call a county scat
election. Judge Westover consent
ed to hear the case at chambers,
and did so at his othco in Rush

"Lincoln was tho child of

great thruths: Liberty and
equality. There was no pootry
in his onvlronment, yet his na
