"Ttuout tor a suitable candidate tor
representative? We have a number
of excellent men, but whether any
of them can be induced to run is a
question. While "ve would like to
have a good man, one who would be
a credit to the county and state, we
can favor a man only who is a
straight republican and will pledge
himself in electing a United States
senator, to vote for the caucus
nominee as long as there is a reason
able show of election. There is no
impropriety in making such a pledge
and in fact it is eminently proper.
In these times when so man' are
masquerading in the garb of reform
ers, farmers1 friends, communists
(alias greenbackers) who are appar
ently willing to lay down their lives
fighting to restore to the dear people
the liberties which have been
filched from them and trampled in
the dust, we hope and expect that
every man will show his true colors.
No one can afford to be looked upon
with suspicion. Ever7 true republi
can is on the side of law, order and
-ood government. As such let us
work with a will and triumphantly
Vindicate our principles in the elec
tion of such men as will carry them
into effect.
The bill repealing the pre-emption,
timber culture and desert land
laws has passed the house and it is
believed will speedily pass the sen
ate, there being no serious opposi
tion to the measure this year, nearly
everybody having made up their
minds it is best for the country.
With only the homestead law by
which you can acquire title to gov
ernment land, the business of the
land offices will be greatly reduced,
and the occupation of land attorneys
and others who thrive by making
out papers and locating will, to a
very large extent, go "where the
woodbine twineth." We will then
have an era of peace and Jeffer
sonian simplicity pleasant to behold.
Leavitt Burnham, who has been
land commissioner of the Union
Pacific Railway Company for the
past eight years, has retired from
the service of the company, being
succeeded by Mr. George M. Cum
ming, of Duluth, recently assistant
general land commissioner of the
Northern Pacific. In his new posi
tion he will have charge of the
Union Pacific lands in Nebraska,
Wvoming and Utah, the Kansas

have been readily sold. In Utah
the land lying within the grant is
much broken, and will not be fit for
much of anything unless it turns out
''What was the largest single sale
of land ever made by the Union
"The largest sale was made in
lSS4to the Wyoming Central Land
and Improvement company, of Lara
mie. They bought 600,000 acres at
1 an acre, the company being com
posed of farmers and ranchmen who
had settled in the immediate vicin
ity of the land in question and de
sired to buy them. A sort of a co
operative company was formed and
the land purchased at the figures
named. To-day the lands are paid
for and a small dividend besides has
been realized on the investment.
The farm lauds are of course irri
gated." Mr. Burnham then spoke of the
wonderful progress made by Ne
braska and the northwest since his
first view of it in 1S(V7. He
then connected with the
ment land survev at a time when
most of Nebraska was in- a wild con
dition and farming was not5 dreamed
of further west than 150 miles from
the Missouri river. , "Now," said
Mr. Burnham, "agriculture is suc
cessfully practiced 400 miles from
here and time can only tell the pos
sibilities of the country beyond."
Mr. Burnham will retire from
office to-morrow evening, but will
remain in Omaha where he has
made his home for years, and is now
interested. What he will do in the
future he has not yet determined,
but he will probably engage in busi
ness here.
