Editok IIekald: Tho Alli
ance Times says "wo are informed
that a republican club has been
started at Box Butte -with 84
members; that tho farmers are
not all going to bo fooled with
tho free silver bait."
I want to suy that there is a
Bryan club organized in Box
Butto precinct, in .township 20,
range 17, and out of '27 voters
there is only ono hard sboll "jon
go" and ho is an old timo republi
can ofiico bolder. That's tho
way tho farmers are "baiting" at
that cursed gold standard. In
tho midst of plenty we aro in
want; helpless children and tho
best womanhood and manhood of
America appeals to us for release
from .that Continental Jowish
bondage that is destructive to
life and liberty. Npw, Mr. Ed
it6r, I contend that it is the farm
ers duty to nail those republican
lies as fast as they make them.
Wo understand that Mr. Mont
gomery, ropublican candidate for
county .attorney, made a speech
in Alliance replying to Hon. W.
L. Groan, but wo do not find any
report of sumo in tho Allijinco
goldb'ig papers. Wondor why?
