The Times' Unjust Attack on Com
GREED THE MOTIVE
ChnrfiCH of Dereliction of lititv Proves
the Times Unwarranted AttncK-A Poorly
'Concocted Falsehood Mndo Vdra by
The Alliance Tames, in its frantic effort
to gain political capital out of nothing,
makes a long-winded attack on the board
of commissioners of Box Butte county in
its issue of last Tuesday, in which every
member is charged with a neglect of of
ficial integrity. But like everything else
to his credit, Mr'. Ellis has again made a
blunder and proven his inability to deal
fairly with his fellow men.
The charge is made that the county com
missioners failed to act in regard to a
road petition establishing a highway be
tween our neighboring town of Heming
ford and the county seat. The .road, as
prayed for, was to run parallel with the B.
& M, railroad right-of-way. Now, the
fact of the matter is this: Said petition
was filed at the office of the county clerk
and a commissioner appointed .as over
seer to establish such highway. And, just
as brief as it is to tell the story, be re the
matter rested. No report was made and
no legal proceeding relative to the petition
in question was ever brought before the
county commissioners. This is the truth
in a nutshell, while Bills' long attack is
a bushel of falsehoods. The singling out of
Mr. Caha In the false attack shows the
cloven foot of his accuser. The Insinua
tion that Tub BIbkald as the official paper
of Box Butte county is where the shoe
pinches and Ellis' greed to poke hi snoot
in the public trough is the real contention.
Jt will be doing that man no injustice to
state that he cares as little for the road to
Hemingford as he does the way to heaven.
County pap alone will nurse his injured
feeling and he puts up baby talk, to ga'Vi
his' point. Mr. Ellis is starving for want
of patronage and not having the necessary
circulation to entitle the Times to official
recognition he becomes desperate and
attacks the county board without provoca
tion. Had Mr. Ellis, in his attack, but
omitted his selfish motive for county pat
ronage his charge might have carried
weight, but as it is, the poor fellow's cake
is worse than dough.
The road in question is the same that
has been traveled the past fifteen years by
residents of Hemingford .and Alliance and
tve do not believe the trickster of the Times
will be able to cause estrangement between
the good people of these towns and those
living along the route.
Those who desire further information in
regard to this road question are respect
fully referred to either of the commis
sioners, Messrs. Duncan, Loer, Caha or
County Attorney Mitchell, and close in
spection of the county records is also
solicited that this matter may be fully
A Republican Hoodoo.
And why does the Times publish ma
licious falsehoods against Sheriff Reed?
And why does it attack' Commissioner
Caha? The reason is obviour. It is
simply a question of the dollars and cents.
The Grip is now republican. It has flopped
over, to the dismay of tho Times and
there's not enough of g. o. p. pie for two.
The land office publishing is given more to
the Grip than the Times, And hence
those howls. Better watch out Mr. Ellis,
or you'll lose all. The republicans think
you a case of "too much Johnson." For
even if Reed and Caha are defeated, you
need not expect any of the county, pie.
The Grip will swallow the Time's share
if not the Times. The Times might give
it appendicitis. Ffas the Times iorgotten
how a year ago when it attacked Commis
sioner Loer, as if is now attacking others,
that many republicans voted for Loer who
was elected because of the Times oppo
sition ? In fact the whole republican
ticket would fair better politically if it
were not cursed with tt)e asinine support
of the quill driver on the Times.
Theodore Johnson, one of our old-time
friends from the north part of the county,
was in the city yesterday. While here he ac
quired title to another quarter of land ad
joining his ranch, making the third quarter
he has purchased this year. Mr. Johnson
came to the county sixteen years ago with
little of this world's goods, but he is now
one of the most prosperous stockmen in
this section. And The Herald is glad to
see him prosper.

The lad was at once brought to this city

voters of Box Butto county. Tho busi

Reed's rccoid and will support him at the
polls noxt Tuesday, And they are cer

It would be tedious and unprofitable to
