^ - Editor Slieenan of Boston Vis
I its O’Neill on Tour
COUNTRY PLEASES HIM
Many Foreigners Coining to America
Seeking Homes. — Efforts to
Head Them This Way.
“We arc here on a tour of investiga
^ 'ton and have been asertainiug the
oportunitcs your country offers to
home-seekers.” said Geo. II. Sheehan,
editor of The Hibernian, of Boston,
who with Capt. John H. Diliion have
been in O’Neill since Saturday.
In reply to a question as to what he
thought of Holt county he replied. “I
am very much impressed with this
beautiful country with its rich and
fertile soil and had no conception that yon
had such a thriving city as O’Neill,which
speaks volumes for its founders and it
should stand as a living monument to
the sterling worth and persistant efforts
of that sterling Irishman General John
O’Neill. I am sure that his fellow
countrymen in the east will be delight
ed to learn of the progress of the city
which bears bis name.’’
Mr. Sheehan stated that there was no
doubt in his mind but what some of his
countrymen in the east would take ad
vantage of the oportunities that now
presents themselves in this section of
the country. Mr. Sheehan further stated
that he would also pay particular atten
tion to impressing this fact upon the
Irish immigrants which are mow arriv
iugin such large numbers as he says:
“The immigration to the port of
Boston this year is greater than ever
before, and about two-tbirdsof the new
comers locate in the cast, which already
is overcrowded. It is absolutey neces
sary that something be done to relieve
the congestion, and some of us have
taken up the work of finding locations
in the west for as large a proportion as
possible. We have discovered that
scarcely any of the overflow has been
headed for this part of the northwest
which tact is due to the lack of any
thing like systematic action in this
country to let its advantages be known.
I have heretofore had a chance to know
something about these advantages, and
have been impressed with the opportuni
ties afforded, and so will do everything
in my power to send families to the
farms in the country tributary to
O’Neill. We are here to investigate, as
we understand land prices are not out of
reach of the people whom we will strive
to send out.
vve win send representatives to meet
the boats coming into the port ofBoston,
^ and later it is our purpose to send men
to uthe old couutry to see that immig
rants are informed of the opportunties
out here before they leave home. Some
idea of the number of people coming
from Europe is afforded by the fact that
on one boat arriving at Boston there
were-2,281 immigrants, and on another
there were 1,475, both arriving in one
week. There is a pressing necessity for
directing some of .this immence influx
out towards the great west, where there
is not the engorgement that afflicts the
east. Ill our paper, the Hibernian, we
have been agitating this for a consider
able time, and other papers in New
England have been taking the matter
“The time is ripe for sowing a consid
erable amount of seed in tbe far east at
very little expense. If the newspapers
out here will prepare articles enumerat
ing the advantages of their sections and
send them to Now England newspapers,
particularly the rural weeklies, they will
doubtless be genesally reprinted.b ecause
there is quite thorough recongnition
that something must be done to relieve
the pressure now being felt upon the
“Our object in the matter ir nothing
further than to find homes for people
who need them. Of course, the class
that we will most likely come in contact
with are Irishmen, but there are other
nationalities to be reached. Our special
interest in Irish immigrants is natural,
as may be understood from the charac
ter of our newspaper, but we would be
glad if there could be systematic work
for the relief of other classes also. It
would be altogether too much of a task
for us to undertake to cover the whole
field, and so we will confine our efforts
to our own people.”
Mr. Sheehan and Capt. Dillion learn
ed of O'Neill through Neil Brennan
who has been showing them about
Holt county the past week. They shall
leave for the east on Saturday.

Niobrara Pioneer: The wolf scalps
continue to roll into the county clerk's
office. This week has been a recird
breaker and we donbt if the record
made Monday will be beaten. Henry
Hoese, jr., of Hartington, while passing
through this county on a pleasure hunt
captured 71 and turned them into the
clerk’s office Monday. The number of
scalps recived this week has been 101.
This makes a totai of 450 received this
year. The county’s bounty of one
dollar a scalp is apparently an incentive
without the the state bounty, and if the
killing continues it will soon be rid sf
its immense supply of wolves.

The true sportsman is careful to note
before shooting that his bullet or shot
will do no damage except to proper
game. He closes and fastens the
farmer’s gate when he passes through,
and refains from firing his gun near the
farmer’s house and thus alarming the
family,He dosen’t shoot tame pigeons,
or a hole through the fan of a windmill;
he recognizes that he is favored by being
allowed on the premises for a kujffaud
proceeds to do that one thing. It each
person who goes out with a gull 'and
dog would exercise ordinary care, most
lands would be open for decent hunters
at any and all times.
Bury the croaker out in the woods
in a beautiful hole in the ground, where
the bumblebee bums and the wood
pecker pecks, and the strabblebug
trabbles around. He is no good to the
folks of the town, too impractical’
stingy and dead, but he wants the whole
world and part of the crust, and the
stars that shine over his head. Then
hustle him off to the dead, and bury
him deep in the ground; he’s no use to
us here, get him out of the way and
make room for the man who is sound.
Congressman Neville will soon re
turn to his home at North Platte. Last

recently has been at Hot Springs, Ark.
