Mr. Erb Replies.
Alliance. Neb., May 2, 1898.
Will you please allow mo a fow
lines of space in tho only truthful
paper in Box Butto county. I
understand thai tho county com
missioners and myself have been
raked over tho coals by tho most
unreliable, unprincipled, low-lived
papers in Box Butto Co., and
as I have never seen or road the
articles myself and do not take
tho Alliance papers, as they are
not tit to be kept in a respectable
house I can only form an idea of
what the articles were liko and 1
must be condemned by thoso Al
liance hoodlums for the follow
reasons: First, Because I would not ac
cept tho forged petition to re
move the county seat.
Second, Because I exposed
their fraud and forgery by exam
ining said petition.
Third, Because JL would not bo
a party to tho scheme of im
peaching Commissioner Barry
ami redisricting the county so
asto give tho corporations a
chanco to elect ail the commiss
ioners and run ttio county muuuL
at their will and levying a
speciul tax to build a tfoJ.UJU
court houso and jail and to im
prove thuii property, reduce the
taxes in Alliance precinct and
raise it iu the country liku they
have done when they had tho
power' and because 1 would not
allow my knoes to bow under
corporate power and be bribed
with a little corporation pap
and boodle funds, ridein tho hobo
car, drink boodle swill Willi them
or allow myself to bo used by
the Alliance .skinflints as some
of the pap suckers m and around
Alliance do. if thoso hobo bruis
ers had any proof that Will Jesse
lived on .section 0. township -j,
range 47, and some others which
I testified to tho contrary, I say
if those were honest why did
they not off or such proof and
contiadict m before the Board
and not go idling those lies in
V.UI ",,jau "- .,.,. -,.
this time of year. 1 did not
want to say anvthinir but I desire
lo iet the honest taxpayers of
' I3ox Butto county know that I am
with them, and to toll those pap
suckers that if they think they
can drivo mo into lino by abuse
Umt t, havo got holtf of tIlf,

to say that wo havo two county
officers in Box Butto county that
