As r ill be seen by reading thtt
issue or The Herald, a number of
Ileum are printed Ihnt jure nut In
to type for last week's Issue, but
crowded out QSttt an amount of
IStiltSlllH matter Is being crowded
out again this wki-e on ic ount of
the demand of advertisers for Spay I
We are very much pleased with the
IncreaswiR business If It continues.
Wi that elRht panes arj not suffl

and advertising space. It will be
met by enlarging the paper to twelve
or sixteen pages.
Clarence E. Harman of HoldreRe.
candidate or the democratic and pen
pies Independent part let for state
rail wn v oinmlssloner. was in Alli
ance Tuesday forenoon getting tic
qua lilted us best he could III such n
short atay. It Is but fair to say
that Mr Harman made a very favor
able Impression upon voters whom
he met here. He believes thoroughly
in democratic principles and pledget
himself to promote the same to the
bci of his ability Kor many years
he has been a traveling salesman,
and like commercial travelers gener
ally be is thoroughly posted on pre
Mil day issues and is well qualified
to fill the office for which he hits
been nominated, and to which he
will in all probability be elected
There Is I strong feeling that the
western Mirt of Nebraska should
have more of a representation among
the state officers than it has been
having. This fact, coupled with Mr.
Harmnn's popularity, his acknowledg
ed qualification for the position of
st;ite Railway commissioner, and the
htltbef fact that thta Is a democrat
Ic. year. Insure him a large vote in
this part, of the state.
Hy order of the county commit
eioners, a notice is being published
In The Herald, for an election to
vote on the proposition to bojid Box
Butte county for 176,000, .for the
"erection, construction and furnish
ing; of a court houae". A court
house with more room than the pres
ent building affords and with better
protection for the county -ords Is
badly needed, and In the opinion of
The Herald should be built without
unnecessary delay, but If bonds
are voted for that purpose we hope
It will be with the consent of a
majority of the voters thruout the
entire county. We do not feel dis
posed to rush thru any such proposi
Hon without due consideration by
the voters concerned. Whether or
not there shall be a new court
house constructed within the next
year It a QUSSttOS for them to de
cide, and we trust that they Will
give the matter careful consideration
before election day. Our opinion Is
thai practically the entire county
favors t new court hoot, hut whetb
i r the county shall be bonded for
$7fc.00(i for that purpose It also a
question for the voters to settle.
We are willing to abide by the de
clslon of the majority, but are sine
M will ie for the good of uVH lanes
basin, sh interests to have the co-opera
tioa and good will of the country
precincts, whatever may be de id mJ
upon in the matter.
