The County Seat. I
A small party of Alliancoitosl
appealed befoio the boaid of;
county commi.sslont'r.s Tuesday
aud presented a petition asking!
for th calling of a special eloc-1
lion for tho purpose of sul mit
ting the question of relocation of
tho county scat. They emphati-1
cnlly requested tho houid lo actj
upon tlieir petition and call an
election forth villi. This tho
board declined to do for the
reason that they dosiro to inves
tigate tho petition and ascertain
whether or not the signt rs there
to are resident electors of this
county. The roiuonstiators ap
peared before tho board and re
quested sixty days time .for the
petition to be investigated and
the board took action today and
granted them 52 days. Tho Al
liance "10c lawyers" tried to run
their same old dodgo of having
the election called before their
petition can bo investigated. Ap
parently that is their only hopo.
If their petition is a good one it
ought to keep for a few days.
Two years ago they presented a
similar potiliou which upon in
vestigation was found to contain
a great many illegal names and
a glance at the petition now on
file would indicate that it is simi
lar to the old one, as it is signed
by people who reside in adjoin
ing counties Attorneys Smyser,
Mitchell and Berry represented
the petitioners while Tut tie and
Ilamer appeared for the romon
strators. IT WAS OBSERVED
That LawyerBorry put in most
of his tinio trying to look wise.
That lawyers Sullivan and
Nolemainlid not visit Heming
ford this week.
That Lawyer Mitchell was con
spicuous for his absence when
Judge Hamor arrived.
Thai Aiiie Simonson's argu-
mouts(?)had utile weight with
the board aud tho only good Alio
accomplished was lo pay for
tlireo days board at ono of Hem
ingford's leading hotels.
That Lawyer Hampton was not
as enthusiastic as ho was two
years ago and parsed away tho
tinio smoking fragrant havanas.
Mr. Hampton wns suspicious that
th6so treacherous Ilomingford
ites had a mine placed somewhere
aud ho was not desirous of jar
ring anything loose.
That Birdsell, tho B & M train
master, spent Tuesday with his
Alliance frionds at tho court
houso and that his clerk George
Burke was hero all day Monday.
Those "fellows are smooth enough
to make good detectives.
That tho hardest task was
shouldered on Uncle Sam Smyser
because he was used to 'pearing
in public. After a short consul
tation it was decided that someone
must ansy?or Hamor and Sam was
selected. He pointed his linger
high in tho air, drew a long
breath and oratory began to flow.
Sam niado tho effort of his life
and done evorvbody's heart good
to hear him. The Alliance boys
really thought that they were lis
tening to the secoxd Abraham
Lincoln. Everything wont along
smoothly until he closed. Judge
Hamor arose and' then it was
Judge Smvser ihou!ht 'n- i in

bad fixed him i(h one of their

veil and seein"1 so muiiy familiar
faces of old Homintrford friends
he realized tint he was on Amer
ican soil and in friendly hand's
and then he was thankful that
the old Judpo let him off so easv.
However. Mr. Sm-nr is a good
natured fellow and the best at
torney in the "midnight town."
