A BIO WATER POWER PROJECT.
While the state authorities are playing marbles with the Loup
river power project, and preventing the speedy development of that
wonderful natural resource, another project has been financed and
will soon be under way. Omaha parties have made all arrangements
for the construction of a big power plant at Fremont, securing a
head of 121 feet by means of a canal tapping the Platte river twenty-
bix miles west and carrying the water well up on the bluffs on the
Saunders county side just south of Fremont. Engineers say that
the canal will furnish 35,000 horse-power.
There will be no reservoirs in connection with this project. The
head of the canal will tap the inexhaustible underflow of the Platte
river, and provision will be made against lack of water supply
through any cause by maintaining auxiliary steam plants now exist
ing in Omaha. This power project will furnish ample power for
lighting purposes in Omaha, for street railway purposes, enough
will be left over to turn every factory wheel now operating in the
metropolis, with a huge margin of reserve power left over. The
men who are interested in this great project have ample means
behind them. They will not need to beg for money, for the simple
reason that they are able to command all the money they need for
any purpose whatsoever. When men like Fred Nash, the Kountze
family, G. W. Wattles, and others of like business standing, take
hold of a business project, it is a sure winner. And these are some
of the men behind the Fremont power project.
If there Are those who doubt the Platte river's ability to furnish
power, let them study the history of the power canal at Kearney.
That is the pioneer power project of Nebraska. That it has not to
date been a success is in no wise due to the fact that the power is
not there ; it is due to the fact that it was built twenty years ahead
of time. It is there now, however, and Kearney, and a lot o near
by cities will soon be seizing upon the advantages it offers. Some
of these days Kearney is going to move ahead just like it did in
the old boom days, with this difference that whatever Kearney
undertakes in future will be founded upon a solid basis, not upon
There are scores of possible water powers in Nebraska yes,
hundreds of them. Nebraska is more fortunate in this respect than
any other state. When her citizens realize what they have and take
advantage thereof, Nebraska will be independent of the coal barons,
and then will begin Nebraska's supremacy as a manufacturing state.
She will have the power, just as she now has the raw material.

of this wonderful county in the northwestern part of the state. It is
favorably located, getting as much rain as most of the eastern coun
ties. "Whenever it has made an exhibit at the fairs or land shows
it has stood pre-eminently at the head of all sections of the state and
in fact of any western state. It is noted for the potatoes that it
raises and the crop statistics from the State Bureau will compare

and alfalfa is gaining ground. Flax has been proven a sure crop on
sod, making it possible for a man plowing new ground to get pay
for the ground cultivated the first year. Alfalfa has proven a great
success and there is a large acreage of this being put in. Some men
putting in as high as 80 acres this year. "What is already in is as
fine a stand as seen any place and cutting one and a half tons per
acre the first cutting. The second cutting is now ready to harvest.
There is no use telling the people what alfalfa will do for a country
and now that it is a settled fact that it is a success, this section will
reap rich rewards from its production. This country can't be beaten
for the production of cattle. The high price of beef is causing many
to wake up to the fact that more cattle must be raised. The news
papers are all commenting on the subject and figuring out different
methods of production, but the small rancher with the small herd
is the solution. The dairy interest also is very important. Men who
are only carrying it on as a side issue make $25 a week, besides their
other farming work. The raising of hogs is a sure thing in this
section, there is no decease to contend 'vith and with the production

After due deliberation we have come to the conclusion tfiat the
trouble with Nebraska democracy is that it has too darned many
leaders and not enough followers.
If Nebraska's wheat crop fails to pass the .50,000,000 bushel
