le nearness of the congressional
ention for the Big Sixth is eaus
more or less comment on the
able outcome. The fact that
pressman Kinkaid is receiving
li favorable mention from a cer
coterie of newapapers does not
lecessity constitute the mouth
* of tlie district. In fact in each
tv in the district may be found
s a following of republican voters
are not altogether satisfied with
work done by the present member
ng his two terms, and that
led with the fact that lie has
■d two terms in congress and lias
pleased a very large number of
rs especially in the cattle coun
gives rise txi the question, would
■ wise to give him a third nomi
in? The opposition to Judge
caid is much larger in his own
\ than his followers may perhaps
| be aware, and lie would' have an
e opposition that might tie disastrous
should he tie nominated. The North
[■ western lias always in the past been
! an earnest supporter of Mr. Kinkaid
[ but will not allow such friendship to
lead it into an error which might
I prove costly to the republican party
in this district. Among those whom
possible new Moses in this district i
and one whom we understand would i
Ik* favorably received by the republi
can- of the entire district, and of the j
cattle country especially, is Hon. Ed.!
Could of Woibach. an extensive cattle-!
man. and well and favorably known
throughout the country. Owing to
the questions arising between the
cattlemen of the northwest and the
government!, would it not be a matter
of most interest to the Big Sixth to
send a man to coqgress who is in
! touch with the great interests above
mentioned, who knows from the
ground-work up all about it. whose
integrity and honesty in unquestioned
and upon whom the government can
rely as being in direct touch with
such interests? We do not know that
: Mr. Could would accept such a nomi
nation: we are not personally
acquainted with the gentleman, but.
we do know from knowledge of his
personality and reputation as a busi
ness man that he would make a good
servant of the people of the district,
iti case of his nomination and election.
In company with Attorney Starr,
a NoimiWKSKKKX reporter visited
the enterprising little town of Rock
ville last Friday, and by the way the
first time we have tieen a visitor
there. We found it one of the
neatest, busiest villages in the coun
ty. and better than all a town whose
people are a unit in sentiment, action
and enterprise. They all work to
gether for the upbuilding of their
town and for good roads reachiug
out in every direction, winch is one
of the best drawing cards for any
community. And another tiling we
found, and it is that from all we
could leaon. the new B. & M. line
from Cairo through to Loup City will
pass through that village, instead of
through Boelus. as formerly supposed.
The stakes and thorough survey by
the railroad people lias been made,
and leading Rockville financiers are
assurred the survey through by way
of Rockville will be the one on which
tiiev will surely build. We are not at
liberty to say at this time by what
sure .authority we give the above, but
our readers may rest satisfied that
the best evidences point to Rockville
instead of Boelus as the point through
which they will come to Loup City.
We will give further news later.

If farmers would cut the tall weeds
