1'he citizens of the South I
LouP in the vicinity of Georgetown -
town , are enthusicastic over the
prosp"ects of a railroad in their
'community , The U. P. R. R. "
has' ; . ignified a illingness to
consld9r a showlUg the comu
munit1. ; desires to. make advant-
ag t the extension of th road
froII11Pleasanton to Georgetown ,
a distance of thirty miles.
, A meeting wai held Tuesday
night. . at tbe Downey sch09l
hJ : e to ascertain the Wish o
the people" and to gath r.uch .
data as would be of material advantage -
vantage to the proposed exte'n-
sion. An orgamzation was effected -
fected by electing P. F. Camp-
I bell , chairman ; and Nc George ,
Forty of \ the representative
men of tbe community were present -
, ent and the sentiment was unan.
imous in favor of the extension.
The estimate of resources show.
ed that tbe 40 present own 4,500
cattle and horses , and 4,600 hogs.
It was estimated tha.t the 150
tax payers of Loup township
alone represent 15,500 cattle and
horses , 16,000 hogs , and have
not less than 30,000 acres of land
under cultivation , and a flouring
mill of 50 barrels capacity , besides -
sides the cream industry , which
would assume mammouth pro.
portions. Not less than
fifteen miles extending north
and south would be tributary to
the proposed extension. Fully
two thirds of the territory is now
best accommodated by tbe . &
M. , but many of them are 20 to
25 mile ! ) distant from the nearest -
est shipping station. A road
up the Loup on the proposed
. route would develop a large increase - I ,
- crease of business over the present -
sent and make it profitable for
the railroad company as well :1S :
. . the people along the route. The
territory between Pleasanton and
Georgetown IS setteled with
thrifty people and every community -
. munity compares favorably with
- Loup township. Many of the
most extensive stock raisers and
breeders live on the South Loup , .
and the REPUBLICAN joins with
them in hoping tbeir highest
anticipations may be realized.
