County Board Selects J. B. McKee,
Now Engineer and Boad Ex
pert in Saunders Co.
From Friday's Dally.
Among the important matters that
were handled by the commissioners
yesterday afternoon was that of se
lecting the new county highway com
missioner, and for this position the
board named J. B. McKee, who is at
present connected with the road
work in Saunders county, selecting
this gentleman from a number of
applicants for the position and after
due deliberation of his qualifications
and efficiency in the job.
Mr. McKee comes very highly
recommended by the state depart
ment of public works, with which he
has had more or less experience in
the past year. He is one of the best
lualified civil engineers in this por
tion of the state, which makes his
acceptance of the position as high
way commissioner especially pleas
ing to the commissioners, bringing,
is he does a fine technical knowledge
f the value of road work that will
enable him to give the people of
Cass county a thorough business ad
ministration of the. office.
The county commissioners have
taken their time in making the ap
pointment and examining thorough
ly the qualifications of the varipus
applicants and have decided that the
special training in the line of road
construction which Mr. McKee has
received will make him an especially
valuable man for the county at this
:ime when several road extension
propositions are up for action.
Mr. McKee is the second highway
commissioner of the county, suc
ceeding C. F. Vallery, who is retir
ing from the office after having suc
cessfully carried through the first
year of the extension of the good
road movement in the county, and
the work of Mr. Vallery and his as
sistants has been very effective in
getting the movement well under
way. Under the administration of
Mr. McKee it is hoped to carry it to
even greater lengths in the coming
The commissioners also plan a
re-adjustment of the road patrolmen
of the- county with a view to greater
efficiency in the work of caring for
the roads.

Proposal to Design New Seal Becalls
Part Cass County Man Had in
Designing Present One.
The introduction in the state leg
islature of a bill to design a state
flag and to provide for a commission
to design a new state seal recalls the
important part that Captain Isaac
Wiles of this county, an dwho pass
ed away Just a few days ago. had
in securing the present seal of the
state of Nebraska.
It was at the first state legislature
in June. 1867. that Mr. Wiles in
troduced in the legislature an act
to provide for a great seal of the
then infant state and on June 15,
1867, the bill was passed, carrying
with it an appropriation of $25 to
have the seal designed and made.
The act as introduced by-Mr. Wiles
was as follows:
"The eastern arc of the circle to
be represented by a steamboat as
cending the Missouri river; the me
chanic arts to be represented by a
smith with hammer and anvil; in the
foreground agriculture to be repre- i
sented by a settler's cabin, sheaves J
of wheat and stalks of growing corn; j
in the background a train of cars;
heading toward the Rocky mountains
and on the extreme west the Rocky
mountains to be plainly in view;
around the top of this circle to be
in capital letters the motto, 'Equal
ity before the law,' and the circle
to be surrounded with the words,
'Great Seal of the State of Nebraska,!
March 1. 1S67.' "
The seal has from that time to the
present served as the official seal of
the 6tale and while it might not ap
peal to the higher artistic sense of
some it is truly a fitting representa
tion of the arts and pursuits of the
people of the great state and the
mctto one that all free men should j
see is kept inviolate at all times. !
Living through the early days of
the state and representing as it does
a distinct emblem of the west during
pioneer days it should remain as it
is, the official seal of the state. I
With nations and states the anci-'
ent seals are kept inviolate and their
age represents the greatness of the
nation or state that they represent,
and the proposition to change the
present seal is one of folly, aLthough ;
the proposition of the adoption of a
state standard is a very good and t
logical suggestion. j
The state seal is a lasting monu-'
ment to the great services of Captain
Iraac Wiles in the pioneer days of
statehood and should be left undis-.
uirbed by the efforts of the legisla
tors who could well devote their ,
time to less laws and more effective,
