The state hoard of transportation has
passed a resolution urging the railroads
to make a reduction in rales for the ship

I-iuring our absence last week we made
a trip over the P. M. from Crawford
to Hastings. Of course the line from
Alliance east has been in oiieration for
some years and is not new to the travel
ing public, but from Alliance to Craw
ford it is certainly new to people who
till VH traveh-d all over Nebraska. There
are a few miles of this road which cost a
lortune lo build. The grade is so steep
that it was necessary to make a curve
inui h resembling a mule shoe and this is
followed by a reverse curve making a
sort of letter S, after which the tunnel is
reac hed. The tunnel is something over
TOO feet long and is approached by deep
cuts and represents a vast amount of la
vor, but the road is completed to Craw
ford and regular passenger service was
put on Oct. fith, and it is the intention of
the management to put ou sleepers in
the near future. C K. Huntington is
agent for the company at Crawford and
he is one of the most pleasant and ac
commodating railroad men it has lieen
our fort une to meet for a long' time.

The re-election of Hon. L. D. Richards
as chairman of the republican stato cen
tral committee was a happy tribute to
the excellent executive ability displayed
by that gentleman during the campaign
of 1SS8. Iu that fierce political contest
Mr. Richards proved himself master of
the situation and marshaled his forces
in a manner that proved irresistable to
democratic, narlv. Mr. Richards not
only has the confidence of the republi
cans as a party lender, but he has the
highest respect of all for the high traits
of character possessed by him, and it is
to be hoped that when he shall have
closed the second year's labor as chair
man of the stale central committee, lie
will hear the call of his friends to accept
