The Alliauco papers aro out
denying tho name of ono John
Ronsvold "deceased," and say
that tho namo is shown on tho
potition as John Underwood and
tho county clerk and his doputy
take tho stand with tho Alliance
combination and say tho namo is
John Underwood. Now tho clerk
and his deputy aro vory elastic

i It is possible to change tho
original so it would read Under
wood, and as this is a county
seat fight it might be done. We
I take it that tho clerk and his
1 deputy want to do tho right
thing and wo do not make this
charge against them, but thero
, aro others in Alliance that could
make the change. Tho name on
tho petition is in load pencil.

Rev. Kendall's father died last
Sunday at Rushvillo. He was
nearly 70 years of ago and had
been ill for sometime. Mr. Ken
dall returned Wednesday.
Mrs. Friel is quite ill.
The Alliance people now say
that a crazy man stole that letter
from Mr. Hall und carried it with
him to the insane asylum at Nor
folk, from which placo tluy ob
tain it. This explanation of the
u atter suggests the thought that
the Alliance county seat boomers
should 6end sonu ane person to
the asylum, if such a one can bo
found among their number, to
pick up all letters that go tho
s.imu way. JtiJiiu fro u the
action of the gang considerable

liar feature of tho maladv that af

tho fact that they havn a mania
for handling other people's mail
In county seal fights, a latitude
has to be allowed to tlm men who
aro getting up thn fight for their
own ends as far a, tho truth goes.
Alliance must Imvo appreciated
this fact in their work but the way
in which thy lie indieriininataly
is wonderful to lt)hoId.

Dada, wife of Rov. 13. P. Dadu,
pastor of tho Congregational
! church, aged 00 years, 5
I months and 28 days.
I For two weeks Mrs. Dada had
boon suffering with pneumonia,
but was convalescing. On tho
morning of her death she was
j unusually bright, ato a hearty
I breakfast and asked hor husband
to go for tho mail. On Mr. Da-
I da's return from tho ofilco ho
i found her suffering very mucli
; but with his assistance slio walk
od to tho bed and in twenty min
utes from that timo was dead.
For 82 years she had boon a
minister's wife, enduring tho
i hardships and trials like a true
servant of tho Most High, and
rejoicing over victories. She
was possessed of a lovely chris
tian character and worked zeal
ously for tho building of the
Master's kingdom on earth.
Her daughter, Miss Velma,
who was at Denver, was tol
egraphed for and will hero this
evening. Her husband and
daughter have the sympathy of
the entire community in their
suddon bereavement. .

When the Alliance people wore
circulating their petition they
were not called "lying, unscrup
ulous, unprincipled knaves" nor
did v.'o ask tho .armors or cit
izens of Hcmingford to take
down their shot guns and go af
ter them as tho Times of tins'
week suggests. But now that
wo are digging up some of tho
rottenness, how different. Now
Bro. Ellis this shot gun business
don't scare anybody, but wo will
bo with you on all mattors an:l
if you want to fight that way, we
aro ready. We want to serve
notice just here to tho effect that
we aro going to fight you for the
next twenty years, or more if
necessary, to hold our rights.
Judge Spacht is quite sick nt
his homo with intermittent fever.
Dr. Bollwood is attending him.
The Alliauco papers aro not
content with backing up the coun
ty seat gang in deliberately try
ing to steal the county seat which
is Plemingford's by every right
but think that this paper has not
even airy right to live at all and
inferp that, wo are bought by tho
Inter State Townsito Company
because wo stand up for what is
our rights. How easy it is for
them to see faults in other people
and ignore their own. It is possible,
nay more, probable that tho re
cent additions to the printing of
fices in Alliance wero purchased
with money from tho county seat
fujid of Alliance. Sudden riches in
the Alliance newspaper offices at
' the time of a county seat fight is
apt to lmvo a shody construction
' any how. But wo aro alive, o.vn
ourselves ami our paper and will
stick in this fL'ht to tho fi l.sli and
Homingford will keep the county
seat. When papers like those in
Alliance seek to back up an
unholy fiht like this attempt to
' steal a county oat their 6enso of
moral honor is apt to gut warped
so that they think everyone i as
bad as they aro.

at this timo for mo to say that
we aro in Box Butto county to

adopted to burden our proporty
with taxation for the benefit of
any ono class and not for tho
wholo peoolo, we aro in the fight
and will undertake to protect our

tition or any other potition that
docs not represent tho residont
electors of Box Butto county.
IWo wero informed whilo at Alli

aro ready to see that it is lawful,
and are with tho honest taxpay

ROUND-UP OF HOr?SE9.

One Great . unch.
Ftvo thousand horses In ' a Blnglo
bunch, rearing, running, snorting and
nhylng, urged on by two-score plctur
oequo Indian and halt-brccd riders,
sending Into tho air a cloud of dust
that envelops and partially conccaln tho
vast band of cayuscs, as tho rldcro,
with Bwlsh of ropes, with ohoutn and
yells, urged on the Burglng band of
half-wild creatures bofore them, writes
a correspondent from the Jocko Indian
agency. It is a picture seldom seen
now, and only posslblo in tho unre
stricted range of tho reservation a pic
ture, If seen, never to bo forotton, saj
tho Anaconda Standard. For flvo days
theso bronze riders havo scoured th
northern range of tho reservation, driv
ing boforo them every horao that wao
found In this long stretch of country.
They have ridden across tho rolling
ground of the lower valley; they have
eearched the canyons; thoy have peno
trated the dense timbers of the foot
hills; thoy hnvo ''-nhed to tho open
parks on the mountainside. From val
ley and canyon and hillside they hava
driven tho half-wild horse, and have
gathered them on tho banks of the
Pend d'Orcl'.lo river for tho cutting
cut. Five thousand tossing heads, 10,
000 vicious eyes, 20,000 trampling hoofs!,
Almost as far as the eye can reach are r
horses, horses, horses. There are steeds
at every color and of every size. Near
ly all of them are the mean, treacherous
Indian ponies, some of them shapely
and handsome, It is truo, but in every
eye la a flash of wlldnees that betokens
111 for tho man who attempts to tarns
tho ow r. Hero tnd thcro in a mass
of horses that Is being urged onward
at a trot is a big, fine-looking animal
that evidences good breeding. But there
aro not nany of theao. Thoy aro near
ly all cayuscB of the cayuaost order. At
ono of the ranches on tho banks of tho
river thero are three big, well-fenced
pastures, and here the cutting-out will
be done. On the reservation there are
now about 15,000 horses, and of these it
is estimated that ful'.y 2,000 have no
right to the Indian range. This
will do much to Improve the
condition of the range, and It la for
this purpose that tho big round
up has been undertaken. The band of
horses now belnc driven toward the ex
temporized corrals has been gathered
in tho rogion north of the Pend d'Orellle
river. Ab soon es the cutting-out has
been accomplished tho riders will cross
the river and will rcurd up the stock
between that stream and Crow creek,
and thcro will bo anothor separation at
tho Allard ranch on Mud creek. In ad
dition to the removal of all horses,
Agent Carter has ordered that a'.l cay
use stallions may bo disposed of In or
der that there may be some improve
ment in the grade of horses raised on
the reserve Thun the round-up will ac
complish a double purpose.
Town and country succeed one an
other. The train passes at full speed
over low bridges, spanning broad
rivers "hich flow botween fo!sts re
mains of forests, rather violatod, mas
sacred forests, whose vigorous vegeta
tion still bears witness to the primitive
splendor of this country before "tho
pale-faced destroyer of forest" had set
foot upon It. Rowo upon rows of cot
tages, without gardens, without a sin
