The county commisionors mot in ses
sion Wednesday for tho purposo of or
ganizing n new precinct, n petition for
which was filed some timo ago. This
precinct which will bo known as Platto,
embraces tho territory along the Union
Pacific from the enst bank of tho river
through to the east lino of tho county
and includes the land in Hall, Maxwell,
Brady nnd Vroman precincts, nnd tho
purpose of tho consolidation of the ter
ritory is to vote bonds to aid in the
construction of a bridge across the
rivor east of North Platte. With tho
construction of the bridge will bo tho
building of a highway parallel with tho
railroad through Maxwell and Brady
and thenco to the east line of the
county, there to connect with n road
into Gothenburg. By the building of
this road tho distance to Gothenburg
as compared with tho route south of
the river will be shortened oight or
ten miles. This now road will be part
of the Lincoln Memorial Highway.
In the construction cost of the bridge
North Platte will need vote bonds for
its share, which we think our people
will be willing to do, as tho new road
and bridge will bring much additional
trade to our city. One-half the cost of
tho bridge will bo borne by the state.
