Editor Good of The Valentine
Democrat has beenielected captain
oJLkanithtary company organized at
Valentine This makes our brother a
war democrat nope hell not get
a Thorn in his side Ainsworth Star
Evidently Bro Leach thought he
did a very cute thing when he cut us
offrthd exchange list of the Oracle
While he tried to instiuct us in news
paper courtesy he by this act shows
that he doesnt understand the first
principles of newspaper decency to
Bay nothing of courtesy Up to this
time we have always supposed Lelloy
possessed at least a modicum of sense
An income tax is the most just and
equitable tax that can be levied
There is no other civilized nation -on
earth that does not levy one There
has been an income tax levied in this
countryand nobody seriously question
ed its constitutionality until the mon
ey powers had entrenched itself in the
supreme court as well -as in the other
branches of the government The de
cision that it is unconstitutional was
an outrage and the manner in which
it was done was indecent
Just to think After all the ad
miration we have expressed tor
Commodore Dewey and after exalt
ing his patriotism and bravery to the
skies it now turns out that he is the
rankest kind of a Grover Cleveland
democrat Gprdon Journal
And so is Eitzhugh Lee a democrat
Does their democracy dim the lustre
of their fame or detract from the
greatness of their services to the coun
try Cannot a democrat be a patriot
apjlfisit written in the constitution
that no man is a true American unless
he is a republican Remember Grant
was talKed of as a possible democratic
candidate for president
The threenewspapers of Valentine
ie the Republican Democrat and
News have wisely got together on
one proposition that of charging one
half regular rates for all cards of
thanks resolutions of condolence
and announcements of all church
show and society entertainments where
an admission fee is charged When
the newspapers receive compensation
for this cisff work they pay their
way into the various entertainments
and consequently are not snubbed
as they so frequently are for being
comps when in reality the work
they have performed and for which
they receive complimentaries amounts
to much more than the price of the
tickets given The majority of pa
pers over the state are now adopting a
schedule of prices for all work of this
clasB Chadron Journal
We have heard complaints about a
few meeting and electing themselves
officers of the volunteer company now
being formed in Valentine which in
our judgment is not well founded
There must be a head to everything
r 1 org3szing a company to go to
the front is not an exception to this
rule At any rate we would as soon
fight under Capt Good as any other
man we know in Valentine Xot be
cause he is any better in this respect
than a great many others but for the
reason that he wants to fight conse
quently will take the active Interest
in drill and charge thatr puts life and
confidence in those who in battle ar
ray meet the enemy on the field to
conquer And while -a great many
are not yet volunteering to go they
are just as loyal and true to our coun
try and if need be will rally to the
lopport of those whogo before later
in the struggle for lBerty How
ftireet the word Liberty sounds to him
tfbo canand will enjoy it Valentine
Dissecting Table
There are schemes and schemes and
here is one of them-
The editor of this paper has lived
inValentine for over two years and
to the best of his knowledge no one
has ever thought be was a consump
tive until after he was elected captain
of the Volunteers Then the interest
ingdiscovery was made that not only
did he have one foot in the grave but
that both his father and mother and
goodness knows how many uncles and
aunts had died of consumption
This will be an interesting item to the
editors father now in the employ of
the state at 1626 Wirt street Omaha
and also to his mother 2215 Q St
Lincoln Also to bis uncles and aunts
not one of whom has died since the
editor was old enough to attend school
also to his four brothers all of whom
are in the best of health This story
had less foundation than did the story
that the editor was a republican be
cause a number of his relatives are
tainted with the latter disease
We will not say wfiere the consump
tive theory originated nor why it was
so assiduously circulated but we feel
confident that we know both these
Ourinvitatioh to attend the meet
ing of the Elkhorn Valley Editorial
Association at ONeill on June 4 was
lost strayed or stolen but neverthe
less we expect to be there if Govern
or Holcomb doesnt order the Valen
tine Volunteers to the front in the
meantime We know that the ONeill
people will treat us right and we ex
pect to have a good time We also
intend to acf as guardian for Bros
Smith Lyon and Cooper and pledge
them that we will not allow them to
board a Short Line train when they
want to come home And of course
we will take in Robinsons circus
drink lemonade and feed peanuts to
the elephant with thSTestof tii boys
