To the Voters and Taxpayers
of Box Butte County, Neb.
I have been informed that some!
.unscrupulous person or persons
have taken tho opportunity to in
form the people that the Inter
state Towusito Company had con
cluded to drop Hemingfoid and to
step down and out of Box Butte
county. As Agent for that Com
pany I desire to say that sucli
6tuten.Gi.ts are wholly false and
our interests at llomingford are
just as groat as they ever were
and wo are are just as inuoh inter
ested in the county heat remaining
at Hemingford, us ever. To that
end wo will work in the future as
we have in the past.
We take the position that one
part of the county is just as good
as another and the people's rights
should be respected just tho samo
in one portion of tho county aa
another Wo have no ill-feeling:
towards Alliance and believe she
is entitled to all no has. The
above statement will also hold
good as to Hemingford or any
other locality of Bos. Butto county
and it is our purpose to deal fairly
with every one interested in the
future developomont of tho re
sources' of Box Butte county.

We reproduce the following
articlo from tho Edgomont Ex
press of April 8.
"Tho various immigration so

is settled, and the citizens UniteU me meai, aoparuneni ana aiso

mouse amount of good can bo'paintiug and decorativo work is
done. At Hemingford last Tuos- dono by G. 0. Alexander. H.H.

men met the commissioners, and I and sale stable business. Clark
by the iujluonco of level-headed
mon the conflict was ended. Box
Butte county now has a great
future, and the citizens will take
xy their arms and fight for tho
good of tho county iu every thing,
Hemingford is situated in the
most advantageous part of the
county for a big town. With tho
ground sloping gently from
nchool house hill in overy direc
tion, fine building sites appear.
Already tho town is feeling tho
press of tho good prospects for
tho coming season and will con
tinue to duo so for somo time.
The Herald, in commenting on
Prof. Fonner's speech, says: Tho
professor's brief lecitalof what
ho noticed iu tne way of substan
tial improvements and wonderful
developments of tho horctofore
unnoticod resources of Edgemont
is important to the people of
Hemingford and vicinity, chiefly
because tho same powerful com
bination of brains and capital,
known as tho Intor State Town
site company, controls tho sitos
of both Edgomont and Heming
ford, and tho wonders accon
plished by this company at Edge
mont under tho management of
their able superintendent, AJr. A.
L. Sharrocfc, will be re-onacted
at Hemingford on a grander scale
within tho next fow years.
The above statomont is a solid
fact and tho improvements that
are under way for Hemingford are
great, and tho next two years
will see a season of unexampled
prosperity and growth in tho
city. In mentioning the town
the chief attraction is tho elegant
school houso, standing most con
spicuously on the top of a rise,
and this location will allow of
Ilemingford's educational mat
ters coming first from the very
prominence of tho school house.
The school house contains four
largo rooms and closots and is
two stories high, with a very
completo basement, and by next
winter the building will bjtJ boat
ed by steam. Prof. L. B. Fenor
assisted by Miss Frnzier in tho
intermediate and Mrs. Blahchard
in the primary departments, take
tho lead in tho education of the
young people of Hemingford and
tho school is a most successful
one in every way.
Tho Hemingford Cornot band
of 23 pieces is ono of tho finest
in tho stale, and has taken sev
oral prizes for excellence. In
tho summer evenings tho elegant
band stand is occupied by thoin
and tho citizens are treated to
somo excellent music.
The city is incorporated, Sam
uel Switzer being chiof executive
and is ably supported by a board
of trustees and they are now
planning for some great improve
ments in tho town.
Among tho prominent business
men and bankers in tho city were
uoticed tho following: C. J.
Wildy has got an enviable rep
utation for "dealing in every
thing" and selling at prices with
in reach of all, and his largo bus
iness shows that he is in touch
with the people. G. A. Burlow,
president of tho Box Butte bank,
attends to tho finauciul matters
of tho community. In tho hotel
business Samuel Switzer has tho
Metropolitan, J. T. Pinkerton
tho Piukerton, and M. Shindler,
tiie Farmer's hotel. H. R. Green

Saturday, April 11th, 189G, at
tho homo of her brother, Patrick
Kinsley, occurod tho death of
Mrs. Maggio Alworth. Tho do
coused had been suffering with
lung trouble for a long time,
which wrys tho prime cause of
hor death. She was born in

ents to Box, Butto county, ton
years ago, where she was united
in marriage to Edward Alworth,
who with three small children

Tho fact that Mr. Whitney is
again taking active interest in pol
