ROW OVER ROAD.
From Saturday's: Daily.
Mr. Frantz was home over Sunday
and reports that a large delegation
from the northern part of the coun
ty was before the Itoads committee
of the house last week protesting
against the disignat ion of O street
as the official highway through Cass
county. Mr. Frantz laughingly re
marked that when they told him
they would get him in the next elec
tion if he did not favor the Mnr
dock route, he remarked that if he
did his home people would get him
if he did not. so he saw his finish as
a legislator, but he should worry.
The fact stands out bold that O
street is the logical route and even
if the Murdock route were paved
the O street would have the bulk of
the business because it is the nat
ural highway. True it is some ben
efit to Otoe county, and the Mur
dock line would benefit only Cass
county, but the United States gov
ernment is paying r.O per cent ol
the cost and the State of Nebrask?
a large share of the balance, and if
is hardly probable that these fundc
will be available tor the r,ole benefit
of a few inteersted in the establish
ment of a new road which lias never
been traveled and in all probability
never will do to any great extent.
The federal government is in the
good roads business - to establish
permanent, convenient and direct
highways for the benefit of all the
people; not merely to place a paved
road in front of some individual's
property. Of course after the main
arteries are built latteral roads may
come, so in time every road will be
a paved road, but for the present
it is a hundred to one bet that it
will be O street or no road through
Cass county. Eagle Beacon.

ED AT LAST
SOME MINOR CHANGES IMPROVE
ON ENGINEER'S ORIGINAL
BEST ROUTE FOR THE COUNTY
And One Accessible Alike to Those
Living in North and South
Parts of County.
From Saturday's Daily.
After much consideration in the
state legislature over the designation
of the hard roads which are to be
established in this county, and con
stitute a part of the "Federal Aid"
road system of the state, the report
of location of the Cass county road
shows that but few changes have
been made from the original draft
submitted by the engineer, and in
these instances the changes are read
rly seen to be for the best interests
of the tax payers and citizens of the
county as a whole.
Altogether, there is much satisfac
tion expressed over the county in
the designation of the route chosen
to receive state aid. True, the road
west from here through Jouisville
would have been the most conveni
ent route for Plattsniouth people.
but realizing that it is situated too
far from the central portion of the
county, our ctiizens did not press the
advisability of such establishment be
fore the lawmakers.
The original draft as submitted by
the state engineer, took into consider
ation the interests of the people of
Cass county as a whoirv and those of
i portion of Iincaster county as well,
and provided that the road should
continue directlv west from Murray
The undersigned will offer for
sale at Public Auction on the Dovey
Section, three miles east of Cedar
Creek, six miles east and two miles
north of Louisville, and nine miles
west of Plattsniouth, on
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH,

to Waverly. as this would make the
distance shorter from the east end of
the county to Lincoln, and accomo
date no few of the people living in
Lancaster county as well. Another
proposed route was one across the
southern part of the county, and its
advocates pressed their case before
the legislature with considerable ac
tivity, yet, are willing to admit that
the route chosen is best for all citi
zens of the county as a whole.
The new road as outlined in the
committee report will run from Mur
ray due west to a point a half mile
south, of Murdock, where it contin
ues south into Elmwood, thence to
the west and south through Eagle,
where it joins the road leading from
Nebraska City, which also passes
through Eagle, and the two are
united from there into Lincoln, thus
saving the expenditure of keeping up
two roads. The route chosen, aside
from being centralized in the county,
possesses numerous natural qualifi
cations which make it feasible as a
state aid road, principle of which is
its freeness of hills and the fact that
it is at present in very good condi
tion for improvement at the minimum
Not alone is this road one that will
respond readily to the money and la
bor that may be expended on it, but
one that will accomodate citizens of
the entire county, and those passing
through the county. It is to be hop
ed that roads running north and
south from this highway will be im
proved to the limit, thus giving the
county as good a system of roads as
any county in the state. Let every
one stand behind this federal aid
road movement and do his best to
keep the highways in first class con
dition this summer.
