New Law for Counties.
A law was passed by the last legislature

They must reside in the district, however.
A law was also passed legalizing sheriffs'

Alliance Greets the President
With Hearty Cheer.
ENTHUSIASTIC CROWD GATHERS
President Makes Happy Speech and
Leaves With Hearty God
speed From All.
Saturday last was Roosevelt day in
Alliance. In train and buggy, buckboard
and farm wagon, crowds thronged, to
town to greet the nation's chief magistrate.
The day was perfect and everybody and
his wife entered into the spirit of the occa
sion. Great preparations were made by
tho citizens. Bunting and banners wcro
lavishly displayed and the picture of tho
president was a prominent feature in the
windows of the business houses.
Some patriots cut a shine by their prom
inence and assumption. Others equally
patriotic were In total eclipse. Where
were they and why did they not appear?
The former party monopolized so much of
the patriotism that there was not enough
left to go round to tho latter. And hence
tears of disapointment.
The special train bearing the president
arrived amidst a salvo of steam whistles,
cannon music, cheers and general enthu
siasm shortly after 6 o'clock. A plat
form was erected north of the depot facing
the square and to this the president was
escorted and introduced to tho people by
Capt. Ackers. "Teddy" looked as usual,
glasses, teeth, smile and all. He certainly
showed the benefit of his outing in the
He spoke very interestingly on the topic
of "Good Citzenship," praising the pio
neers of the west for their hardihood and
He urged kindliness towards one's fellow
citizens and that we should be willing to
always help those who endeavor to help
He gave sage advice to the "promising"
politician. He bade his hearers beware
of promising more than could be fulfilled!
and from accepting promises that are im
possible of fulfillment.
He strongly urged honesty in public
life and decency in private life, especially
the latter in relation to one's own family.
Some sitting near the president cast
anxious glances around, fearful lest the
president might express himself more
clearly on such dangerous topics. Con
science makes cowards of us alll
The president greeted the school chil
dren very heartily and congratulated
Alliance both on the quality and the quan
tity of her noblest product.
Thetrain pulled out for Grand Island
amidst the enthusiastic Godspeed of the
large crowd, and Theodore Roosevelt de
parted, bowing and smiling his farewell to
Alliance, leaving a most favorable impres
sion ou all who were present at his recep
tion. Marshal Reese received inquiries from
the undertaking firm of Yost & Son of
Hiawatha, Kansas, this week from which
it is thought a former resident of this town
was killed by the cars there a few days
ago. They say the man was about sixty
years of age and that he told the policemen
who picked him up that he was a tailor
and had formerly lived at Alliance, Neb.
His name was thought to be Colby or
Cody. This description is so meager that
no definite opinion could be formed from
it, but a good many think he is Frank
Krajicek, who wrote from Omaha to rela
tives here over a year ago that he was go
ing south, since which time nothing has
been heard concerning him. He was well
liked here and those who know him earnest
ly hope it was not he who was the victim
of this accident.
The vagaries of the weather in this
section of the country reminds us of Sam
uel L. Clemens' famous discourse on New
England weather and ours runs it a close
second both as to quality and quantity.
We certainly have had a grand review of it
duringthe past week summer heat Sunday
and since then it has been cold, snowy, rainy
and blustery with variations; but at pres
ent there are indications of the approach
of warmer weather.

Omaha's Mayoralty Contest.
The interviews published in the World
Herald relating to the democratic candi
date for mayor, coming as they do from
voters of all political parties, are convinc
ing proof of his ability, if elected, to rid
that city of the disgrace and disaster that
has been brought about by tho present ad
ministration. The democratic platform is
the only one worthy of consideration by
the tax payersof Omaha. The democratic
candidate stands squarely upon it. His
past record both in a business and politi
cal way prove that his word is as good as a
goverment bond and his record as coun
cilman and as state senator prove that he
is honest and fearless in the discharge of
Whether Omaha-fa to have Mr. Howell
for its next mayor depends entirely on
democratic voters. If they do their duty
by giving him their loyal support he is
sure of election. Those familiar with the
situation regardless of politics admit this.
Therefore there is p. great responsibility
resting upon every democrat in Omaha at
this time. On the success of Mr. Howell
depends largely the future success of the
party in Douglas county and Nebraska.
Democrats of northwest Nebraska are
with you in spirit, as well as all loyal citi
zens regardless of party, who wish to see
Omaha throw into the deep blue sea the
whole quarreling republican gang nnd for
once give the tax payers a business ad
ministration. It will not only do this but
inject new hope into the party in the state.
