We are informed, for tho first
time, by the Allanco Times, that

readers all about it next week.
If tho Intor State Townsite

Tho Alliance Times published
last week an official certificate
by I. E. Tash when ho was coun
ty clerk during the last county beat
contest in 1890, and in editorial
comments calls it an "affidavit"
and insinuates that it is false. Tho
first part of tho charge is imina
tnrial and will bo overlooked for
the reason that the editor of tho
Times hasn't sense enough to
know tho difference botween an i
an affidavit and a certificate, but
to the charge that tho certificate is
false, wo emphatically deny. In
that certificate Mr. Tash certified
that a WARRANTY deed from
the Lincoln Land Co., to Box
Butte Co., for Block 35 in Hera
iqgford had been left in his hands
uo """voiou ui kiiu eminty
when tho county seat was located
at Homingford. That deed was

Boiug'owded for spaco last
week wo id not havo tho oppor
tunity to fully reply to tho dis
graceful article published in tho
Allanco paper concerning one of
tho gonllomon employed to work
in tho interest of tho citizens of
Homingford and the honest,
hard-working, taxpaying far-;
mars of Box Butto connt.v in tlm
uncalled for but expensive coun
ty woat fight now forced upon
them by a fow avaracious own
ers of additions to Alliance and
I a iew otnor narrow-minded, un
posted illogical journalists (?)
whose only idea of sottling a dif
ficulty is by tho shot gun route.
To stronsrthon our nosition
that tho only argument that Al
liance can put forth in this mat
tor is force, wo cito the consorv
tive, industrious farmers and
laboring men of this county to
the petition presontod to the
board of county commissioners
Jan. 10th purporting to bear
only tho. signatures of resident
electors of this county and
strengthened (?) by tho oath of
'some of the representative (?)
men of Alliance to tho effect that
no other signatures appeared
thereon, when but ONE glance
at this honest (?) potition is suf
ficient to convince man that, it is
full of rotteness from top to bot
tom; men's names appear on it
that have been dead four years; I
others who never were residonts
of the county; othors who own
and live upon homesteads in ad
joining counties. Now what the
honest, resident, taxpaying elect
ors of this coulity want is- fair
ness, and fairness wo will havo.
They havo been in the west too
long to have tho wool pulled over
their eyes by any set of unscrup
ulous schemers who, to add one
penny to their purse would not
hesitate to drag this county into
usloss expense and doubly in
crease the taxes of every prop
erty holder in it, and shame upon '
tho man who would advise
throug tho columns of his paper i
tho "skull and cross bone" I
remedy for any man who dares J
raise his voice for humanity and
justice. Now Mr. Journalist stop '
and think; think what would bo

suggest that you transfer your
property immediately, if you
haven't done so already. We've
got ours in our wife's name now.
Tho Alliance Grip thinks that
wo aro dovoting too much spaco
to county seat. There would bo
no occasion if tho respectable
people of Alliance would tako
Ellis' shot gun awav from him
and make throe or four more ly
inrr boot-locrrrors 15r down Wn
havo nothing against Alliance
and liko to seo her prosper but
when they attempt to steal what
justly belongs to us, and allow
a paper (?) to make dirty person-
al attacks against old, respected
citizens of this couuty, and ad-
vise people to use their shotguns
on them, we call a halt.
The Farmer's Lament,
Or How Ono Man 1'ared at tho Hands of Al
liance A Bong of To-da. By H. R. Oro-m
and 109 Others,
Down in tho brick poor houso tho other day
riat a farmer, old and Kray,
Broken by a lifo of toll,,
Dim and Mv-nut woro his eyes,
Sad and touching wero his eighs,
As ho moaned this dismal sonc,
Wht'o the old world jogged along.
"Ono fullhlooded Berkshire sow,
Ono old sway-hacked sorrol cow,
Two red heifers, weight unknown,
And a colt, a strawberry roan,
These wcro mlno both great and small,
But Hampton got them all.
Then I raised his hoary heal,
"Come, cheer up, old man," I said:
"Try to cuitivato a smile, . '
Homingford yet has tho county seat,
And will keep it quite a whilo.
But ho only sang avray,
Palsied, old and gray:
Ono old sorrol sviay-bnckod cow,
One ten-dollar breaking plow,
Ono farm wagon, nearly now,
Ono corn planter, painted blue,
Ono old maro whom namo was Hell,
And ono deep drillod well:
Nlco new paper on the nail.
Bill Hlmonson's mortgago took thorn all.
"Frlond," I said, 1 know its tongh,
But I think you'vo groa ,rd enough:
Let tho dismal past lie dt ad,
Let it go -nud look ahead.
Blighter da s are coming soon.
And thoro will be no election in June,
Starry nights aud sunny days,
Bluer skies and better ways,"
But he sang his dismal lay,
Palsied stricken old and gray:
On old bee-hhe filled with bees,
Ono old press for making choeso,
Double harness, husking pegs,
Kitchen table, minus lejrs.
Hens a. d turkeys, ducks and get-te,
Monkey-wrench and axle grease.
Busted grlndstono, not much good,
Fifteen cordH of pitch pirn wood,
All Ihefo things wer mlno last fall
Rut BnllUan swiped them all."
It was vain to try to cheer,
One so gloomy, sad and sore;
Ko I left, and as I went,
Fillod with pain and dis-contcnt,
I could hear him sadly call:
"Alliance got them alll"
It is too bad that Mr. Hamp
ton will not havo a chance to
rent his building a fow months
for court houso purposes, and
then it is too bad that the Simon
sons wont havo a chanco to fur
nish tho material for a new court
house. They are abont the only
ones who want tho county seat
at Alliance. Poor boys!
