an old wooden bridge spanned the
great Republican river south of tile
city, to-dav one of the fiuest iron
bridges in the west stretches across
its placid waters, a monument to the
enterprise of our city and county.
Four years ago if a person had talked
about Red Cloud having a street rail
way he would certainly have been dub
bed a fit subject for the insane asylum,
yet the track is graced, the iron be
ing laid and the cars en route for the
city, the whole line to be completed
by Maj 1. a first class line in every
particular and a credit to the
growing and enterprising city
of the valley. Of all of the
above enterprises there are none that
the people take more pride in than the
street railway. It shows that foreign
capitalists have their eyes on our grow
ing city and purpose to invest their cap
ital where it will do them the most
good i e in Red Cloud, As to manu
facturing capacity Red Cloud has in
the Republican river, thousands of
horse power easily obtained and as for
location for manufacturing there is
not a city in Nebraska that has better
advantages, and as to inducements,
our people arc always ready to assist
in all that come this way of what so
ever character. The city is located
on the famous B. & M. railway and
in about 90 days more will have the
second line of toad, the Missouri
Pacific, and then wc shall be prepared
to compete with many of the laiger
cities. Other railroads are heading
this way and our people arc willing
to aid them liberally and will give
them money to come. Red Cloud has
only about four thousand inhabitants
yet she has all of the advantages of a
city ten times as large, besides being
located in one of the healthiest por
tions of the west, naturally drained
beautifully situated, taxes compara
tively light, fine streets, substantial
brick storerooms, and a host of other
advantages that tell ef an enterprising
people. The population will be near
ly doubled this year and people who
are desirous of locating in the west
