Lahcastek, March 2S, 1SG7.
Ma. Editor : The interest I feel
in the welfare and prosperity of our
new State and the early development
of her resources, prompts me at this
time to present some of the most vbvi
ous reasons for the location of public
buildings in the interior. Should my
views on this subject be deemed wor
thy the attention of your readers, I de
tire them to be made known through
your columns. It frequently happens
that whenever questions ef this char
acter arise, the true interests of the
State are not consulted, but it becomes
a matter of sectional (peculation. I
may be, however, that those who are
to decide upon (he location of publir
buildings of Nebraska are not of th
number who can be bought und told
for a few dollars, in a transaction o'
such vital importance to the interests
of the State, which it is their duty to
guard and protect. It is not my design
at this time o advance all the argument
that may be urged in favor of locating
the Capitol, and oiher public buildings
in the interior, but will briefly offer a
few of the most weighty. In the first
place we have in the interior 44,640
acres of saline land which is th prop
erty of the State. This land, if dis-pete-?
of under the present arrange
ment of things would probably sell for
an average of not more than two dol
lars per acre, making a total amount of
SS9 230; whereas, by the location of
public buildings near them, their value
would be enhanced to not Ies than ten
times their present worth or twenty
dollars per acre, making a sum total of
SS92.S00. From this one considera
tion it is eviJentxhat tfearly one million
of dollars might be immediately added
t'Vh5MT?1,'f'ilour. jS'ato Beside r
this saline land occupies nearly a cen
tral position with respect to populatian
and what will ever be the settled and
improved portion of Nebraska; and the
location of public buildings being a mat
ter in which all are equally interested,
it is nothing more than doing justice to
every one to seek a central point as
near as practicable for the location of
such institutions as the wants of the
State demand. It is plain, also, that
such a plan can work no detriment to
the river towns, for whatever builds up
the interior mutt be of corresponding
benefit to them. If the Capitol and
other Slate buildings were located in
the interior population would be induced
thereto; Government lands that would
otherwise remain unimproved for a
long time would be taken up by actual
settlers and a rapid march would be
began towards the development and
valuable improvement of our resources.
Nothing of this kind can be realized by
making either of the river towns the
seat of our State government. By do
ing so we have all to lose and nothing
to gain; their own interests are against
it and the interests of the State at large.
