Ed. Chief : I have watched to
some extent, from its earliest settle
ment five year ago, the progress, ad
vancment and growth of your town.
1 have at various times visited it, and
uoted the character and disposition of
some of its leading people, gjt ac-
quainteu witn many ot tnem, and in
this acquaintance I found nothing but
sociability, good fellowship and the
best of treatment from all with whom
I became acquainted ; but this feature
has uever been more marked than iu
my recent visit, while on my way to
Lincoln to attend the Railroad Con
vention held there on the Gth inst.,
as a delegate.
I do not know, that it would be
proper for me, to specially mention the
names of those of your citizens with
whom I have come in contact, lect I
may forget that of those equally a
good and sociable with whom I am
not particularly acquainted, still I will
mention the Chief itself, and its staff;
M. Btl) of the La CleJe House ; Mr.
David Lutz and lady, who govern a
family of as nice and intelligent a lot
of children as it has been my lot to
know in my maoy travels through life.
There is Mr. Warner, proprietor of
the Valley House; Mr. Samuel Gar
ter, brother of our Governor, th
founder of your town; Mr. John Will
cox, the gentlemanly and able attorney
of your town, and his partner in the
legal profession, Mr. Gilham. Shall
I extend this matter by mentibbhig
the names of Mr. Potter and Mr.
Sherer your druggists, Mr. Hanner,
your hair dresser, and in facte.ery
one of tbem, including the proprietor
of your stage line between your plncc
and Hastings, Mr. Taj lor Webb.
A town blessed with such a peopb
need not fee! doubtful as to its future
I prospects. No sir, they need not.
(For any drawbacks which it may now
have, depends on time alone to rem
edy,) for a locality blessed with a peo
ple such as youn psssess, cannot fail
fits want of friends, whenever neces
There is another matter I should
like to tweak of, but for fear that some
may say that I an flattering for selfish
motives, to gain influence' fur political
reascwsi I-would prefer oat mentioning
it. Nevertheless, at' the risk of ali
this, I must say that the people of
Red Cloud ought to feel proud of the
founder of their town, Gov. Silas
Garber A man of themselves,, who
with a few intelligent followers- cam
here in the fall of 1870, to build up a
home and grow with it, is to day Gov
ernor of the State of Nebraska. Here
is a lesson for tho young of oar State
to learn- He has not sought office,
bat the people from his manner and'
coaduct. so&Bfst them, sought him
ts fill office, becaasethey feoew he was
m. -a. i
fitted for the position, at tne satae '
time capable of understand'ng what it
wa- to be a pioneer, from the fact,
that he was one of tbem himself,
fought advemtiee, suffered with their
sufferings, knows their fceliugs, will
not get above bis position as a public
servant, and who, will not; forget the
common interest of alL Enough of
thifr, You are young yet, and so are
we, but our interests are identical,
Rivcrton as it standi to-day, ha no '
political friends, Mid consequently
must depend entirely on whatever na
ture has done for her, to become a
point of trade in the future. Wekuow
that Red ClouJ and ks people always
have been friends of Rivcrton. The
two tow e have always been on the best
of terms, and on this platform, as far
as we are concerned, we are anxious to
continue for by a unity of effort we
expect to succeed. CoucquentIr, in
the prospective railroad matter now
in hands, (a common interest beinin
voivvd) while each locality is in duty
bound to do the beat it can for
itse f, we hope that both will
woik in harmony ao that one will not
iuterfcre with tho other, in their
future growth. I have much to say
on this subject, but as long as I have
ahcudy gue too far on your patience,
will dcier ic until the next ; thank
ing however, the people of Red Coud
foi their courtesy to me.
I am very truly youw,
