' This is traditionally one of the VAL-
ENTIXE DEMOCRAT'S birthdays and in
recounting the good things that are
ours we can say that for 17 years we
have gone through storms of winter
and summer and today we are stronger
than at any previous time and with a
inqst liberal patronage from the best
people on earth in a number of ways
A\Vfeel encouraged to continue with
our course , ? , going to more homes , giv
ing more news and with an endeavor
to merit a greater patronage than ever
before. We give below some happen
ings of 17 years ago this date in the
DEMOCRATIC BLADE :
< TnE BLADE was so filled with com
missioner's proceedings last' week that
mention of many important local mat
ters was unavoidably crowded out.
TIIE BLADE now has a job stock and
one of the best , printers in the state.
Bring in your work and if you are not
satisfied ve will refund your money
and throw in a chromo.
Gordon Flats will hereafter be called
Simeon in honor of Simeon Mor ar-
eidge. A postoflice has been establish
ed there with E. Stillwell as postmaster
and will be opened soon.
Val Nicholson , who has been in the
land office since spring , lett Tuesday

office now being done by three clerks
Nick is a first class fellow and man' )
friends regret to see him leave ,
'Squire Shaw's court is kept bus }
with lawsuits. Four criminal cases
last week besides the civil business.
He puts the fines on Leavy , and if not
paid , parties have to go to jail. He
.don't remit fines on promises of futurt
The Valentine House has become so
popular that when the train comes in
there is a grand Tush to secure a room
With more sleeping rooms and larger
dining room capacity than any hotel
this side of Cbadron , it is always
crowded. It is also popular with the
farmers who remain in town over night
or for a single meal
Tom Allen , cattle inspector at Mo.
-Valley , la. , was visiting in town this
week. Tom was a Texas cow-puncher
who rose to the position as foreman of
an outfit and so well were his services
appreciated that he was selected lasi
spring as stock inspector at this place ,
and in the fall transierred to the more
important station of Mo. Valley. He
has hosts of friends here , where he has
been known for several years , always
glad to see him.
J3ro. Mayes of tho Eushville Stand
ard again "fills the bill" in an article
on Bartley's pardon and the probable
Vs effect. It is true that many of us ex-
\ pected GOY. Ravage to do just as he did
and that Bartley knew too much that
was dangerous to the ring , to be kept
and held a prisoner by republicans who
were bound to turn him loose at the
first opportunity. The following from
the hand of Bro Mayes is copied from
Lis paper : The pardoning.of Bartley
out of the penitentiary after serving
one-fifth of his sentence was no sus
prise to the fusionists of Nebraska or
elsewhere. Bartley is only one of the
great leaders of the state who manipu
late republican politics and who , for
years prior to populist rule , had been
looting the treasury of the state. The
same work would have continued with
out interuption had not 4tbe voters of
the state scented the rottenness and
"turned the rascals out. " The same
gang lias gut control again and the loot
ing will bo resumed. While it is true
that most of Ihe .republican papers of
the atatejcondemn Gov..Savage for pard
oning Bartley it is dono simplyfor ef
fect and for tho purpose of deceiving
the voters and conveying to them the
impression that.Savage , and not tho re
publican party is responsible for Bart-
ley's release. Governor Poynter was
* offered $30,000 just prior to his-exit
from office if he would issue tke pardon
but flatly refused to do so. Bartley.
had to be pardonod because he was get
ting weary of confinement and threat
ened to give the gang away. What
must be .done ? It was either a eacri-
or an obliteration of the republica1
party in Nebraska , and who can doubl
but what , Savage * eceiyed1SLjJarger < 6una
oanoihoy for pardoning Bartley that
several terras as governor would have
brought him : The gang could readily
loot enough out of the public offices tc
make the sum back if they can make
it appear to the taxpayer that only
Savage was reponsible and * he rebubli-
can party voted back into power.
$570,000 is the sum that the Hartley
earig deliberately' itole' from the ta'x :
.payers ( tithe state and in figuring , the
time he seryed behind the bars you will
find that he received more than $2,000
per week for looking after the ilowei
beds of the state penitentiary. He is
now Jfiee ancPen joy ing his stolen wealth
with all the boinbasity of a prince. We
opiiie that enough republican papers
will continue their tirade against
Bartley between nosv and another elect
ion' toconvince the majority of voters
thatttie leaders'of the repuolican part )
were in favor of Bartley serving his
full sentence , and they will go to the
polls and cast their ballots in approval
of being robbed , that the theives might
hold banquets and give toasts to the
biggest thief in the land behind closed
doors to the outside world.
