This afternoon tho commis
hi 1101 s rejected tho petition call
ing fur a special county aunt
under tho homestead laws.
Thai thirty-five of the resident

That six other persons who
signed aid potition liavo rotnov
ed from Box Butte county since
signing tho samo.
That Christ Hornburg whose
name appears on said petition did
not sign tho same or authorize
his uaoio to bo placed thereon.
That one hundred and ten
other persons who signed said
, petition are not resident electors
of Box Butte county, Nebraska,
!lll(l wcro not when they signed
And that said petition is not
signed by resident electors of
Box Butte county equal in mini-
The proceedings will bo pub
lished next weok.
The Alliance men aro now ou
gaged in the disrepnlable work of
blackmailing and causing the dis
charge, whenever possible, of all
who had courage enough to sign
the remonstrance opposing tho
calling of a special county seat
Thcic is no use denying thefact
that local ofticiuls of the B. & M.
railroad at Allianco aro lighting
Hemingford as hard as possible.
A special car and freo transpor
tation is always tendered everyono
who wants to come lo Ilemingford
to "bring down the county seat"
and tho county seat agitators offer
every inducement in order to get a
crowd to come.
An effort was mado at Allianco
last Friday to take tlio remon
strance away from John Ditto.
Thore wore '.) or A big yahoos in
tho deal but after John smashed
one of them till he had enough
and then made him set 'em up,
the others conclude;! that they
hadn't lost any remonstrance.
Some one suggested that they
run the Ditto boys out of town
.but others thought they "hadn't
lost any Dittos". The Alliance
bruisers can find tho Ditto boys
any time they want to do busi
ness with them.
The Allianco fellows now travel
to Hemingford, (now and forever
the county scat of B. x Butto coun
ty) in a special car and bring ihoir
dinners with them. On Tuesday
ono case of heer was brought up
in the car but that not being suf
ficient to satisfy their thirst,
another case was brought up on
the afternoon freight Wo under
stand that tho committee passed
resolutions to the ell'ect that they
would never eat another meal at a
Hemingford hotel, smoke a Hem
ingford cigar or oven drink Hem
ingford water. They may do all
these thing hut they will coimj to
Hemingford to attc d court and

mistake in their lives; that rid- j
ing in spuci.d cais and drinkiiiL'
beer don't get county seats; that
Ilemingford wonlc are nrellv
cull a county scat elect ''on; that a
great many hu.-iness men of Alii
anceown liMine.ileads in adjoining
counties and should bo living
thereon; that the county coininis-
-inuers are not to hr bnlldossMl,
dictated to or bought and laHt but
nof least that the Ml liavo a "hot I
time in the old town" bofoio they
gel tl o county seat.
We aro informed that a deputy
U. S. Marshal visited Alliance
Sunday and escorted Alius and
W. G. Siiuoiison to Sioux Kails,
S. 1)., where they wore wanted
by the federal court in soino
connection with a case where
timber was cut on goverment
land Tho Allianco boys didn't
seem to want to givo any
information on tho subject henco
wo are at a loss to know just what
tho charge is. However, wo pre
sume Allio has something to think
about this week besides Com'r
liarry and county seat. Mr.
Barry is still at. large.
Attorney M. A. Hall of the well
known linn, Montgomery & Hull,
Omaha, was hero Monday and
Tuesday in behalf of the remon
strators to county seat removal.
Mr. Hull !b a very competent at
torney and a pleasant gontloin.in.
Attorney Porter of Crawford
was also counsel for tho rcmon
slralors. Mr. Porter is considered
one of tho leading attorneys of

That the recoup ntradoos and the

That money heorand "Allianco
wants it" aro poor arguments to
rjinovo a county seat.

are no disgrace to tho legal profes
