about the disappearance or elope

Whatever may have been her

of a paramour, is deserving of

thorforo with pride, sand erect

our county in the late county set
contest, which is again agitated by
the Alliance hankers, politicnbs

the abovo mentioned people of Al
liance ask you to sign the petition
for relocation of tho county seat,
rofuse,defy and remonstrate against
such actions and give us you
aid by signing our remonstrance
which is boing circulated all ovor
tho county with no othor induce
ments whatever save tho wolfaro
of Box Butto county nt heart
which moots daily with unexpect

this present writing, Its support

half thousand patriots of Box
Butto county. Let tho good work
go on, your reward will be reaped
by low tax receipts for many years
to come. Our court houso here
in Jlemingford is a- structure
that would be a credit to many a
far eastern county, ailiplo room
and large enough for many years.
Stand by youf rights protect your

ruinous petition of tho Alliance
