Kditor Alliance Herald:
In your laat iseue of The Herald
you have formulated three plans, by
which there could be a primary for
the. purpo.se of eliding a candidate,
to be appoint Oil postmaster to suc
ceed Mr. Tash at the expint ion of
his term. I, as a I'r gressive Dem
ocrat, believe in ,'n sic 'an, "Let Un
people rule", and ain in favor Of the
first plan. Permit all legal voter
that are patrons of this office to
vote for their choice. The candi
dates o be patrons of -this office
and residents of Box Butte county,
and must tie good democrats, it is
true that some people differ as to
the right method to approve of an
appointment. This in my Judgement
Is the right way to select our next
The candidate must declare if ap
pointed that he will look after the
office to the best of his ability, that
be will not run the offleeby an as
sistant, but will attend to the office
The reason that I approve of this
system is because I think that the
patrons of this office know better
who they want than four or five
men down three to four "hunon u
miles east do. No man would like to
get an appointment 'uness he at
least had his home indorsement. II
this should be chosen as the way to
decide. I would suggest that some
fSimmluy should be set for the pri
mary and that there he one voting
place, the candldulea o put up
enough money to print the ballots,
and pay for the Judges and Clerks
of election. .Candidates fo file as
The Elks will hold their regular
lection of officers Friday night. A

The members of the Alliance Vol

It Is expected that, a large delegn

More Than Half Ton of Print and
Book Paper Necessary for
This Issue of The
7 I
-f , I !
IHetaBHsiHfiV s7 . JSaF
Compnrat ively few people- have
any idea of how much paper is re
quired for an edition of a leading
newspaper or magazine, or even how
mitefa is required for a special edi
tion Of a total paper, such as this
i-stie of The Herald. There are
many magazines ami metropolitan
news). apt ri that require several
tons of paper for a single edition,
while there are a few that the
amount necessary for one issue runs
into car loals. Compared wth these,
riie Herald would, look very diminu
tive, but compared with oineri In
our class it makes a nood showing.
It requires about fifty pounds of
paper for an issue of an ordinary
country newspaper. WelUe one hun
dred to two hundred pounds Is suf
fUWnt fcr the average pup r of
-.owns having a population t.f !,onh to
5,000. The above information will
show something of the relative im
portance of this issue or Die Herald
wlun w e say that it rt quires I ,:100
pounds ef-paptr to print it, 1 ,0M
pounds of "8up rior" print and M
pounds Of hook paper lor tin- cover
To brin: the comparison closer
home, we esCinate that the cost of
postage on this one issue of The
IBrald will be more than that paid
by the Alliin Times for an eni rc
mouth, altliough that paper is pub
lished twice a week.

o fer ofi minor matters, President Wilson has selected a cabinet that o
o may be properly classed as aggressively progressive. Following is o

At the presint time homesteaders
in the western pari of the state, af-.
ter they have nrade final proof on
their lands, are paying a rate of In
terest that amounts to about 10 per
cent, including commissions. Mr.
Deaver is of the opinion that they
ought to secure the money at from
6 to 8 per cent.
This spring, according to Mr. Den
vi r, there are hundreds of Nebraska
homesteaders who will make final
proof on their lands and if tiny can
borrow money a: reasonable rates of
intettst they will mortgage and put
the proceeds Into cattle, generally
cows, thus making the west half of
the stale i gn at dairy section.
Mr. Denver liguns that a Kinkald
