The Passing of (he Homestead.
An articlo in tho Omaha Bee states
that practically all of tho free land !n
this state ha been entered ns home
teads and cites that on December 1st
there wero in tho Valentino distriet
nineteen sections subject to entry, In
thoAllianco district there are somo
scattering forty and eighty acre tracts,
nnd in tho Broken Bow district thoro
nro few scattering tracts. Tho condi
tion in this, tho North PIntte district,
is not mentioned, but we can supply
this information by stating that on tho
first of Inst July tho ncrenge of vacant
land was in round numbers 19,000 acres.
Since that dato practically ono half of
this acreage has been hotr.estcaded, so
that today nbout 10,000 acres remain in
forty, eight: and 100 tracts. This land
is the "leavings," rough, sandy nnd
good only for grnzlng purposes. So
much for the vacant land in tho west
part of tho state.
In tho North PIntte land district on
July first Inst thero were 2,000 home
steads on which proof had not been
made, but theso proofs nro being made
at the rnto of nearly one hundred a
month, so that at the eh"3 of"of eigh
teen months tho groat bulk of those
2,000 entries will have had final certifi
cates issued thereon. It is probable
that in tho other land districts of tho
state these same conditions as. to final
proofs exist, and that within two years
me ianu win nave pnsscu uy patent to
It will, however, bo necessary to
maintain n land ofilco in tho west pnr.t
of the state for a number of years' to
finish up tho belated proofs, look after
such few contests as may bo filed, and
transact routine business of othor
nnturo, nnd naturally before that time
comes there will bo a consolidation of
tho districts nhdn discontinuance of at
least threo land ofiiccs.
With its new federal buildiner the
third floor of which hns been set aside
for ttio land office coupled with its
googrnphlcnl location,, it would seem
that North Plntta would bo the logical
location for the ofilco when the consoli
dation occurs, nnd wo believe that
D1090 interested in tho welfaro of tho
town should keep in viev this Inevita
ble consolidation and use concerted
effort in having tho North PIntte ofilco
continued. Commercially the land
office is of vnlUo to North Platto; tho
fact that it is located here brings to
tho city from one to two hundred poo
plo n month who othorwiso would not
dome, nnd as a result our hotols, res
taurants, rooming apnrtmcnts ajid other
business houses are benefitted.
Watts Ranch Sold,

west of town has boon sold to a Lin
coln party for $25,000, tho salo having

Thero aro 570 ncrcs in tho ranch, stho
