Tlic Kearney Military Re
xorve. At preent, tho above subject is one-of
much intercut to the citizens ttf this re
gion, above and below, on either aide of
thn river. It xeenm that a purchase of
ten miles eaat and west, and oeTenil mile
in widib, including the . present . itc of
the fort and a portion of (irand Island'
wan'inade tf tha Pawnees, sotiRihin
lc than twenty jema ago, for 1 iniliU
tj post j at a later period, it seem, that
n addition to that purchase was made
of nearly all or the whole of t'irand Inl
and. A few years since, the amount or
area thought necegrfa;- to hold an a mili
tary reserve wa surveyed out and poaw
aet at the corner, including enough tim
ber for bair a dozen military posts.
Moantime the Government survry of the
land on tho aoutb of tho river took place,
and in aectionizin, a fraction was left
on tbe west' Bide or the Reserve line, up
on which a 'certain party "filed" and
proceeded to improve several stores
wero built, and other building and im
provement made adjoioing to the town
ot Kearney city." I'pou the informa
tion given by tho V. f. Marshal, that
geroiiieit had relinquished all claim
to. land north of the north bank of the
Platta rivor, Beveral ranches worn -tablihed,
and much money expended
about the cnosslng, on this side.
'Just now, all seems to he commotion in
regard to these several matters. Humor
U current thai those merobanta aud busi
ness men settled near, tho Reserve line
are ordered by tho commaudinK officer
' to vninqse'.' as, I'nalo Sam's nbarp
shooters want n little more land, ord
must bare tbc fraction they are oecupy
ing, and also that the ranchcros on this
aide most "absquatulato" and give tho
room they oecupy for a military stamp
ing ground and what is still more im
probable, that the commandant will
prosecute all the citizens who have, or
way, cut timber upon the whole length
and breadth of Orand Island, which, by
tlJl by, reaches from the fort away be
low the German settlement. All this is
more noi'J than probable and we do not
believe lha gentlemanly commandant,
Col. IKles, wF.l' make Invpropcr or ill
advised 'movement in this'raattrr, neither
will he disturb or distress the property
of he pioneer citizen, unless peremto
rilt'instruotod to de so by the Deport
ment. V We. live reason to believe that
the original military purchase extending
to Ihe north bank of the Platte will give
room, of ample width and length, for all
requirements and necessities or the post,
and that the department should relin-
