The Nebraska-Dakota boundary
commission has lllcd a report wit h
Governor Mickey. Nebraska gets all
the territory south of the now river
channel in what was formerly Union
county, South Dakota. By this ar
rangement Nebraska gets about r,000
acres of now territory and Dakota re
ceives approximately l,ftX) acres of our
land in oxchango for it. Governor
Mickey expresses himself as more than
pleased with the work of the commis
sion and believes that the public owes
a debt of gratitude to C. F Swauson
of Oakland, F. O. Kobinson of Hart
ington and A. E. Lundberg of Wiiyno,
who represented Nebraska on tho com
mission. If a similar arrangement could bo
mado with Iowa, giving tho lattor tho
tract near Manawn in oxchango for tho I

would bo made happy and tho resi
dents of tho isolated territory would
doubtless bo aw woll satisfied.
