The Beacon's attempt to cast in
sinuations against Senator Carrie's
record in the senate reminds us of
the fellow who "strained at a gnat
and swallowed a camel. " Most of
the bills ho voted against , of which
the Beacon complains wore partisan
and wore introduced for political
bunoomb , a sample of which was
bill 2GB asking that the army bo
withdrawn from the Philippines.
Other bills of doutful runrit intro
duce late in the session when there
was no time to oonnidor them bo
wisely voted with the majority of
his colleagues to get them out of
the way of more important legis-
laton. In voting for Senator Curtio
yon will yoto for a man that has the
courage to vote bis convictions and
ono whoso judgment is not warped ,
In Whitney yon have a "orank"at
heat i pliable in the hands of his
masters as clay in the hands of tlio

At the trial of II , Mathews at
Alliance last week , for the murder
of Waite , the jewnler , tbe jury
brought in & verdict of not guilty.
Thus another man goes free of a
crime , which at the time it was
committed was considered one of
the foulest witnessed since the set
tlement of the west. Wo are sorry
for the people of Box Butte county ,
from the faot that it will now take
the rank ahead of Cheyenne county ,
aa to freeing criminals. Scottsbluff

EDITOII REPUBLICAN :
I feel it my duty to inform you
that before I had spent four days in
the M. E. parsonage at this place ,
on October 18th my borne was in
vaded by a host of people , both old
and young , who , after making
merry with us for several hours ,
finally departed , leaving many to-
keni of their good will upon our
larder shelves. They did it so
pleasantly that I fool like saying I
wish that they would come again.
Yours truly ,
WALTER E. MATTIIEWB.

The following we clip from tbe

in reference to the new minister on
the Woritorvillu charge : "Tuesday
night a number of Iriouds of Rev ,
W. E. Matthews assembled at the

gentleman and his family a recep
tion before their departure for their

organized and Mr. Matthews wan
put on trial for his conduct during
his throe yoara Ktny among ud , and
upon duo ovidepto being taken , was
convicted of having done bin full
duty in every particular , and of
having spread bouds of kindness ,
and scattered HiiUHhine wherever hia

bo was convicted , and Judge Angler
sentenced him to receive 821 and a
nice lot of presents which had-been
brought iu for the occasion , after
which bo received a small amount
of cash that came in late. These
donations wore the marks of esteem
showered upon a deserving man by
the people of the world who do not
