Editor of The Herald:
It is a significant coincident per
haps, that both local papers of last is
sue contained a defense of the public
schools, from that Old Fogy of Gering.
The writer was on the platform com
mittee of the new party when an effort
was made to include a plank striking
at the appropriatoin for our schools,
which would throw us back twenty
years. He, in common with another
member threatened to carry the fight
on the floor of the convention, and thus
succeeded to keep it off of the plat
form. The main instigator of that
proposed criem was an editor from
Blue Hill, Neb. This man vowed he
would renew his fight next July. The
point and purpose of this letter is to
express my appreciation for the atti
tude both local papcr.5 take on the
school question. Alliance ought to be
proud of its editors in this respect. In
a meeting of railroad men, the men
expressed their willingness to strive
for a decrease in taxes, but not in a
way that would interfere with the in-

It is astonishing how quickly Tanlac
will produce results. You usually feel

Holsten. , ,
remain as they are, teachers are the
poorest paid people in tho world. The
common laborer receives more than the
average teacher. The teacher draws a
salary, but a part ofthe year, but is
expected to live the entire year, tnd
take special courses beside.
To use the words of one of the rail
road men, "Let us not pass the cost of
the war to our children, let us not
make them pay for the war, by depriv
ing them or the best that money can
get from an educational standpoint.
It is the only thing that the poor man's
child has, that he can get the same s
the rich man's child."
Let us seek ways of decreasing
takes if we can, but for goodness take,
let us let the school alone. If any
thing, let us spend more money upon
our schools. The money we spend
upon our schools, in the way of bet
ter education, brings a greater return
than any other money spent. As long
as Alliance editors take this attitude
on the school question, we may well
be proud of them.

Another contract was made, wherein
Mr. Moracek agreed to deliver 1,200
bushels of Red Triumph spuds at a
price of 75 cents, nothing being said
about the quality of the tubers. The
sum of $120 was paid on the contract,
When half of the potatoes were de
livered to Schlank, who purchased
through the Nebraska Land company,
he refused to pay any of the balance
due, claiming that the potatoes were
or inferior quality, and afflicted with
stem rot, making them unsuitable for
use as seed potatoes. Moracek brought
suit for the balance.
The court, basing its decision on
the wording of the contract, allowed
the plaintiff the balance due under the
contract. ISO cents a bushel for SI
bushels delivered and accepted above
the amount named in the contract, to
gether with costs of ?20 and interest
from November 15.
