The proposition of having a road
running direct from Galveston, Texas
to Winnepeg, Canada, was discussed
in Columbus Monday afternoon. An
organization had already been perfect
ed in Kansas, to be known as the Mer
idian Road Association of Kansas, and
a similar association for Nebraska was
organized here. The idea is to have
an organization to build and maintian
an interstate road across the country
through Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas,
Nebraska and the Dakotas, and it has
been found that the line of the sixth
principal meridian appears to be the
best line for this trans-continental
route. In fact it is now the only
through north-and-south road across
Nebraska. Steps have been taken for
the organization of the road through
Oklanoma and Texas, and Dakota peo
ple have entered into the correspond
ence. The meeting Monday was at
tended by John C. Michaelson, secret
ary of the Kansas association, and by
the following gentlemen of this state:
George W. Post, York, O. E. Mickey
and C. E. Milks, of Osceola, R. L.
Castile, of Stromsburg, Chas. Krutn
back, of Shelby, and C. H. Dack, E.
B. Feaster, H. A. Clarke and Super
visors Schwarz and Smith of this city.
These gentlemen organized the Neb
raska Meridian Road Association, and
elected the fol lowing offcers: president
O. E. Mickey, Osceola; secretary and
traesurer, H. A. Clarke, Columbus;
also a committee of one from each of
the cotnties through which the road
will pass, which consists of Charles
Baughn, York, F. O. Edgercomb, Gen
eva, O. P. Hendershot, Hebron, R,.
L. Castile, Stromburg, G W Phillips,
Columbus, M. C. Garrett, Madison,
and A. Koyer, Norfolk. The associ
ation also adopted as a marker an
outline of the state of Nebraska bear
ing the words, Meridian Road asscia
tion of Nebraska, and giving the
names of of ccmty seat towns through
which the road passes and the distance
between them. The action of these
associations will, if carried out success
fully, make a state and interstate
thoroughfare that will certainly prove
to be very important.

Need Not File Acceptance.
The following exchange of letters
between the county attorney of John
son county and the attorney general of
the state will probably prove of inter-
set to a number of people in Platte
county. It appears that a portion of
the primary law was repealed at the
last session of the legisature, and the
question was brought to the attention
of the attorney-general in the follow
ing question: "If a candidate is
nominated by writing his name, should
he file an acceptance or in any manner
indicate acceptance of the office to the
county clerk, and if so, when?"
- In answer to this qustion. Attorney
General Martin returned the follow
"I find that the law which requires
the filing of an acceptance by the
candidate receiving the nomination by
the electors writing his namt on their
ballot has been reealed and nowhere
in the law do 1 find a provsion requir
ing the filing of such an acceptance.
1 therefore, conclude that where
one receives votes sufiicent to nomina
te him by the electors writing in his
name, he thereby becomes a candidate
of that party, for that office, and his
name should be placed on the official
ballot at the general election, unless
! he sees fit. at least fifteen days before
general election the to file with the
proper officers a declination, as pro
vided by section 5901, Cobbey's An
notated statutes of 1909."
Thus it will be seen that those
candidates who were nominated need
not file an acceptance of the nomina
tion, but become the regular nominees
of the party unless they see fit to de
cline the nomination.
