Send for stationery. Do it now ! Address , The Democrat , Valentine , Nebraska Dan Barnes on County Division. Lake , proposed Like Countj Nebraska. To the Voters of Cher ry County Will we or will w not divide Cherry county this fal in the unjust way that it is pu before us ? If it had been proposed to dividi the county through the center put ting the west half in a county b.i itself , and placing the county sea in the center of the county , when all county seats should be , then w < could run it a great deal cheape ; than we can with the county sea at one side of the county , and i divided as proposed the county seat will be at Cody , Nebraska in the extreme north edge of tin county. Giving twenty-fctur township : to Hooker and .Grant countie- looks unjust to me. Of coursi Hooker and Grant are willing tr. accept twenty-four townships o the best part of Cherry county because if , they can secure this territory it will place their count.y seat in the center of their counties and give them three-fourths more territory than they now have. Look here Voters if it is so nice and cheap to run a small count.y with the county seat at one side , why do "Hooker and Grant wish tc enlarge their counties ? Sure the. ? wish to enlarge their counties thus gaining more taxable property and enabling them to pay more competent salaries to the county officials and also enabling them tc meet the demand of other county expenses. Here a few years ago the people in the southern part of the county wanted to be annexed to Hooker and Grant counties. They brought it before the voters of Cherry county and what did Cody and Merriman do for them ? Look over the returns of the election and you will not find a single vote cast for it , and there are lots of voters in the southern part of the county that are going to return the com pliment. That truly remarkable county divisionist , The Cody Cow Boy , in his issue of October 13th takes as one of his subjects of discussion on county division the schools of Cherry county. If he will take the trouble to investigate he will find that Cherry county ranks among the highest in the state oi Nebraska in educational work ; there are as few children in Cher ry county over the age of six years who have not attended school six months in the year and there are as few pupils over sixteen years of age who have not passed the eighth grade examination as can be found in any other county in the state of Nebraska. Is this educational work a disgrace tc " , B5g Cherry" No , certainly no disgrace , it's the highest- honor bestowed upon a county ; and what is the reason Cherry county now has this honor in the educational world ? Is it because the pupils are more intelligent than in other counties , or is it due to the com petent county superintendents of Cherry county Ihe one holding the office at present as well as those who held it before her whohave , and now exercise good control over their teachers and schoolsl In the same issue he states that it costs ten dollars per vote in cer tain precincts ; that , I think is true but it'isn't altogether the fault of the county. If the voters ar ef A , not patriotic enough to attend1 the election and cast their vote , it is no ones business except their own , and it costs just as much to hold election and have five votes cast as it. does if a hundred votes are cast. I do not think it will cost ten dollars per vote this fall b.v the way the voters are talking oi turning out to vote against county division. Yours for Big Cherry as it is , DAN BARNES.
