Omsha Good Roads Car.
Tho Omnha Rood roads car, enrouto
to Salt Lake City, arrival shortly after
eleven o'clock Wednesday, having been
met at Maxwell and escorteJ into town
by several local cars loaded with good
roads boosters. The men composing
tho Omaha boostorsaro H. E. Fredrick
son, chairman of tho country roads
committee, James C. Dahlman, mayor
of Omaha, G. E. Ilaverstick, president
Omaha commercial club, J. M. Guild,
commissioner of tho same organization,
George McBridc, Douglas county high
way commissioner, w. A. DuUoru, an
attorney, and E. L. Emory, president
of tho Wyoming highway commission.
Upon arrival of the party at the cor
nor of Dowey and Sixth, a large crowd
quickly gathered, and Mayor Patterson
introduced Mayor Dahlman, who spoke
for fifteen minutes, telling of the ob
ject of the trip, tho importance of
having good roads, and the desire of
thopcoplo of tho Platte valley to have
this valley selected as the official trans
continental route. The object of this
trip of the Omaha men is to arrouse
interest in the making of good roads
and the proper marking of tho route.
The present work of these good roads
boosters is of particular importance.
inasmuch as A. L. Westgaard, repre
senting tho official AAA book, is to
follow during the first part of July,
along this samo tour on tho first leg of
a triple trans-continental tour, in wnich
an tne roaus will be inspected ana
mapped, and roports made as to their
condition. If, through the efforts of the
local authorities, and Good Roads
Boosters, this Platte Valloy trans-continental
routo is well posted with signs,
nnd woll improved, Mr. Westgaard will,
no doubt, report this as tho best of the
three routes which ho proposos to
traverse. In this event, much of tho
trans-continental touring which
promises to bo particularly hoavy during
tho San Francisco Exposition, will bo
directed across tho entire length of No
braska: tho benefits of such general
traffic being far more extensive than
one would imagine without making some
analysis of tho subject. It will not onlv
mean that thousands upon thousands' of
dollars will bo spent by these tourists
in travelling across our stnto, but tho
beautiful fnrmH, modern improvements,
up-to-date towns and excellent roads
will be heralded from one end of
America to another.
Following tho address by Mayor
Dahlman, the visitors were taken to the
Ritnor House whore dinner was served,
plateB being laid for fifty. The dinors,
Other than tho Omaha men, were com
posed of local men, nnd several Her
shoy boosters who came here to escort
tho car to Sutherland. When the
good meal was disposed of. Mayor
rauorson introduced several of tho
visitors who mode short nddreases.
At 1:30 tho party loft for Horshoy,
accompanied, by several well loaded local
Tho Blx-cvlindor car which tho nnrtv
used, has nn interesting history. It
was built by the Chnlmera Motor Com
pany in 1910. and has been driven a
total of 40,000 miles by their engineering
department, including a run as tho
Official Press Car for tho last Glidden
tour. They havo turned this car over
to Mr. Fredrickson with instructional
drive it hard, nnd thoroughly test its
construction. Mr. Fredrickson hopes
to averago 160 miles por day during tho
t next three months, putting it through
nil sorts of roads and giving tho car a
most through tost.
Ezra Meeker in Town.
Ezra Meeker, with his long white
hair, yet bearing his eighty-two years
with considerable sprightline3s, nrrivod
in North Platto Tuesday evening driv
ing an ox team attached to tho original
typo of tho prairie schooner. This is
Mr. Meoker's second nnd last overland
transcontinental trip, and his mission is

This trail was laid out during the rush

This week mnrks the sixtieth anniver
sary of tho first time this trail was

drawn by oxon, tho trip being made
In that mannor of travel most in
voguo and moat practical at that time.
Now ho is covering the same ground in
the same manner, not because the
prairie schooner and oxen present tho
most luxurious moans of modern transit,
but because it protrays to tho modern
settlor and tho newer generation the
means by which tho road to the groat
west was first opened.

There never was such a time in the
history of this country for newspaper
reading, and it is important to read a
paper of impartial views one that is
free from any office-seeking or office
holding influences. The important
thing to a great newspaper like The
Lincoln State Journal is to get trial
readers, as it has no trouble holding
them bv its aualitv. The cheapest way
to get new readers is to make a spacial
price, which we now do only $2 for
thi dailv and Sunday nannr until Janu
ary 1, 1913 much less than the regular
price. At that time the paper will stop
coming unless you order it continued
and pay in advance for it. You really
cannot afford to bo without this capital
city paper when you can secure it at
such a price. Send $2 to the Lincoln
State Journal todoy and the paper will
come to you regularly the remainder of
this year. It will be a lively year, too.
Notice To Owners of Dogs.
Under the city ordinances it is the
duty of the chief of police to kill any
dog which he may find running at large
on which the license tax has not been
paid for the current year beginning May
1st, 1912, and a license tag attached to
the collar of said dog. Tho license tags
for male dog costs $1.00 and for female
dog $3.00. License tags are now ready
at my office. C. F. Temple,
