the South. Winters are mild and dry: very
1 ttlc rain or mow falls in that season io lit
tle in Tact that cattle live all winter with no
hiy or grain. Plenty of rain fHi in the
spring and summer. The summers are not
disagreeably warm, as there is always a cool
breexo especially in the evenings. The
county first began to se:tle in 1870. 1 1871
the oempty was organixed with a population
f 45. Its i.opulatio is now between 2500
and30G0 and is rapidly increasing. There
are at present 38 organised school districts
within its boundrier and school facilities are
thtrcfore amplo-better than those in some
Fa tern States. The apportionable school
lund furnishes nearly enough money to pay
teachers' wages.. Farmers can buy R. U
land frwn: $1.50 to 96 per acre with ten years
time. There is yet a considerable amount of
government lands for homesteadt and pre
emptions. Asa stock rawing country it is
hard 'o excel. CatUe'do welt, and for sheep
it cincot be beaten. It is just suited to that.
Furtuues can be easily made by raising sheep
as the expense of feeding is very small. Tbit
corn. oats, barley, potatoes, buck wheat, and
all kinds of roots ana vegetables, are grown
hero with little labor. 35 bushels of sod corn
lo th acre is nothing new. Wheat averages
about 25 bushels to the acre. Fruit doei ex
tremely well. Every farmer has his orchard
growing. Forest trees srow rapidly. Cotton
wood, boxalder, whitewood. soft maple, and
many other kinds of trees grow into timber
large enough fur fuel in about Jtbree years.

In another column we publico an
item from the famines Journal. The
icooil people of Hastings have finally
heard of the projectet narrow gagae
road up the Republican valley and are
girding op their loins and buckling
their belts to give us battle. Hast
ing is determined to control the val
ley trade. It may rain the valley.
but it build? up Hastings. A com
mittee of four has been appoiuted to
gaiaa representation in the coming
Convention. Dague is among the
number and where the Sen
ator is buy, mischief is on foot.
This action of Hastings should arouse
us. It shows us what unscrupulous
neighbors we have. It demonstrates
that whenever the people of the valley
wish to take means to insure their own
prosperity, ther will be a determined
foe utrugliog against them. This ac
tion of Hastings h indicative of the feel
ing of the railroad towns and the rail
road corporation. They all pull together
and always will pull together to pre
vent a railroad from catena this val
ley. The money made froai the farm
era of this $mh n is Med, ta dsfeat

country. There is one inaportaat lei

ti s we most be on an equal footiog.
We want a railroad and wide awake
towns, if we want ear eeeatry settled
A railroad meeting is about to eon
veae in Liacoln, aad we have elected
delegates to represent this county. In
all probability the csaveotioa will pro
pose to the people ef the valley the
projected aarrow gauge from Lincoln
to Denver. The question of narrow
and broad gauge roads will present it
self for oar determination. In consid
ering :he kind of road desired, we
must consider the tendency and the
wants of toe country ia the direction
of railroads. It is conceded by all
that the narrow gauge is the cheapest,
that it may be worked at less expense,
that it can carry freights for much
So far as we are able to learn there
are ooly two plausible objection j to the
proposed narrow gauge. The first is
that narrow gauges are slower than
bread gauges, twenty Eve miles being
their greatest cpeed. This want of
speed is not deemed to be an import
ant objection and is more than com
pensated by the reductioa of the cost
The next objection is that the pro
posed road terminating at Lincoln will
give us bo eastern outlet. It is
thought or clsHuoed that the cost of
transfer and resbipping the grain at
Lincoln will be a grievous burden.
The difficulty of re-shipping seems to
us to be very much exaggerated.
From the best means at our commaod
the cot caq not be more than three
or four cents per bushel, and possibly
will be considerably less. Three or
four cents compared to twenty five the
present rate to LincnlnIlowing twen
ty cents for haulling to R. R. is but
Another thing to be looked at in
this connection is the tendency of the
couutry to make use of narrow gauges.
The subject of cheap transpo.tation
has been agitated with increased inter
est every year for the last tea years,
narrow gauges better than any thing
yet devised seem to meet the wants of
the farmer. Already io the east nar
row gauges are rapidly taking the
place of broad gauges. While to the
west broad gauges are unknown. Of
tbeeew. roads constructed ia the
Eaxtern states by far the greater aiai
ber are narrow gauge. A road eoa
nectiug with the linos aow mmptoitd
in Colorado aad preeeediag east to
Liaeoki is bouad in a vary fcw years
to be extended to Chicago. Already
on this parallel a road has been con
structed across the state of Illinois.
And one is in contemplation, and will
undoubtedly be built if this road is
buiit, crossing the state of Iowa from
Burlington to Nebraska City. We
need then have no fars of our narrow
gauge terminating at Lincoln. In the
same time while waiting for a broad
gauge, we may take advantage of the
present opportunity, and have a nar
row gang coanecting a with Denver
on the West and Chicago aw the East. I

To the caisson of Nebraska interested
in a Narrow Gaage Railroad horn
Southern Nebraska to Colorado.
At a saeetia of the eitnea ef La-
castereowaty, Nebraska, aM at the
city of I iaoola, December 13th, 1875,
for the purpose of taking actio a reseet-
tug the practicability of a narrow raage
railroad from wathera NaT ask a to
Denver, Colorado. The ttadenofaed
comauttea were aalasted ta preseat
country. To compete with these ooaa- i the questioa to all iatarasttd, aad
care a co-operation of all counties con
cerned in the great enterprise. To tha
end the committee issued a call for a
oMveatioB of delegates froaa the coun
ties particularly interested ia rbe mov
ssent, to be held in the chy of Lincoln
oa the 6th day of January, 1876, at 2
o'clock p. m. We beg leave to offer to
the public the following reasons for an
immediate organisation and hearty oo
operatjoa to secure the construct tun
of the proposed railway.
1. Nebraska, with its rich agricul
tural resources unexcelled, and Col
orado with its raises of coal, iron, sil
ver and other mtnreaL", and sparse in
ducements for agriculture, cause the
eitixens of each to fally reaJixo that
cheap transportation between the two
is the great problem that seeks solu
tion. 2. The distance from Lincoln to
Denver by the Union Pacific is over
GOO miles ; by the Kausas Pacific, over
700 miles. Direct by township lines,
up the rich valley of the Republicoa
river, 440 miles being a saving in
disfanc of over 16U or 260 miles or 26$
and 37 per cent
3. The practicability of a rout
from Denver through southern Neb
raska is fully assured by two surveys
made by the B. & M. railroad coiupau
y. and b travelers and freighters who
have frequently traversed the mute.
The country i comparatively lvel. re
quiring title gradinc and excavating,
aud ue large bridging, for a railway.
It is thought that the roadbed with
bridges and culverts, completed for
the ties aad track, could be made fur
$3,000 per mile over the route.
4 The cost of the nirrow gaugft
raUway, with the nectary rolling
stock, it is estimated, will not exceed
$9,000 per mile, or 60 uer cent, ef the
cost of a broad gauge rtud.
5 A narrow gauge roaJ is preferred
to a broad gauge for thu reasou that
the former only costs sixty per cent of
the Itater, and woold be of a-Jequtte
capacity for all the trade and travel
over it. The repairs of road and rol
ling stock for narrow gauge i found to
be less than 50 per cent of the broad
gauge. 1 he average cost or currying
a ton of freight on the broad gauge i
two cents per mile in the west uar
row gauge, one and one-fifth cents per
mile. Ano her argument for Using
the latter is, the railroad system of
Colorado with its great area of moun
tain us mining districts must neces
sairily be narrow gauge lo carry, the
products of Nebraska to the miners
and bring in return coal without break
ing bulk on the rout, we man have
highways of trade like Colorado.
It is to the west that we must look
for our market we Lave looked in
vain to the east. A bountiful soil has
filled our cribs and granaries,, but com
is htarwry waatsd at fftaea or eightae
ceats per bushel, sad wheat goas bag
ging at sixty aad s- vnty oents-that too,
while the miaer of Colorado,aly 450

thaws prioes far ban sabeutaace. The
ayatematised robbery of many grain
dealers in Chicago, in the way of stor
age couituisin, insurance and low
grading, has driven many shippers to
6. The mineral resources of our
sister State are inexhaustible. That
in which we feel a special interest is,
her vast fields of coal, biturainoas and
anthracite, with vein from six to
twenty-two feet thick, which can be
miued at a trifling expense.
With them the cost of living is a
serious question. At Georgetown,
forty miles northwest of Denver,
I the cost of potatoes, flour, core and
oats are from three and a half to five
cents per pound ; hay $55 per ton.
The price of com, oats and potatoes in
in Nebraska is ahorjt one third of a
cent pf r pound , hay, $4.00 and $5 00
per ton; other products being relative
ly the same, the general average be
ing one to twelve.
The distance from Lincoln to Chi
cago is 53S miles. Corn is shipped
from the former to the fatter for thir
ty ceuts per 100 pounds. The regular
price per 100 pounds for corn and
other prada.'ts from Lincoln to Denver
is $1 ,65. Over a direct mrrow gauge,
such freight should be carried with
good profit at filly cento per 100. be
ing sixty-six percent more than the
price to Chicago yet the millers of
Lincoln have found it to their interest
to ship over five hundred car of fl ur
containing 50,000 barrels, to Denver
during the last eight mouths, with a
special rate now of $185 00 per ton.
The pasMoger fair from Lincoln to
Denver is aow $38.00 by either the U
P. or K. P. roads. 5 and 3-7th aad
6s coats per mile The cotof travel to
Chicago from Lincoln is ahoat 3 cents
per ante, over a railway jhat costs
forty per cent more than a Barrow
gauge ; hat allowing the cost of pas
sage to be the same 3) cents per
f sotw, the fare to Denver over the 440
atiTes woald be $15 40.

to Nebraska to get good em! from the

300 miles of as fertile soil, ia Nebras
ka as can be found oa the continent ;
having towns ot importaae that woald
rapidly develop wkh railroad facilities,
and give a fine loeal trade.
Io this country, at a great distance
from the sea-board we eaa oaly hope
to overcome the disadvantage of loca
tion for trade aad commerce, by ibeap
and rapid transit by rail. The rail
road is the great civilixer of these fer
Decry as we msy, and often justly,
the exactions of railroad corporation,
yet without these road Nepraska
would still be the home of a few hardy
settlers, the savage aad buffalo.
Undvt a salutary provision of our
new corstitotioo, the people will fix a
limit to the avarice of the corpora
tion. By one route suggested through
Southera Nebraska to Denver, the
road would pass through ointeee coun
ties in Nebraska that represent a pos
sible bonded MUpport of 600,000 from
counties, and probably much aid
could be secured from precincts and
towns. 1eover is snxious and willing
to give the enterprise substanti tl and
active support, for she, though rapid
ly developing oiuce the building of the
K. P. Road, feels the necessity of
healthy competition. --
10 The proposed rout will give 325
miles1 of rail through Southern Neb
raka, which at a fair compensation,
with switches, depots, warehouse, ro
pair shopj, watr tanks, lulling stock
and other property at 9.000 per mile,
would make $2,925,000 of permanent
taxable property, to be added to the
wealth of the counties through which
the road patses.
11. In each township of six square
miles, there are 23,0 10 acria of land.
It is fair and reasonable to estimate
that the tier of townships through
winch the road would pass, aud the
tiers on each side of the same, making
a Leit eighteen miles wide, or nine
miles ou both side, would euhauce iu
vasue $1,25 per acre, which is the in
creased value that the Government
puts ou her lands in railroad belts
would be an increase of $'8,650 for
each of such townships, or 14,325 lot
each mile of the belt eighteen miles
wide, $4,655,625 lor the U25 miles of
belt iu Nebraska. There would like
wise be a saving to farmers in bautii.g
their grain, coal and lumber, who now
only have distant railroad faciluits,
but we will not stop to make the com
putation. 12. Thus this road can be made the
connecting link to tap the network of
railroads leading north, south aud east
from Liucoln at the one eud, the nar
row gauge roads of the Centennial
Sute at the other end.
