OMAHA , Nob. , March 20 , 1882.
To ono who for a number of yours hav
lived in the Platlo valley or on th
level plateau iri Southern Nobrask
between Ashland nnd Kearney , nnt
has got ] accustomed to the monotony
of the level prairie with its hundred
of sections of fertile Innd , which cat
hardly bo told ono from another , i
is hko making n trip to another stat
to visit Northern Nebraska.
At present tinio when not only al
the homestead land has been taken
b'ut also nearly all of the best rail
road land has boon sold in the former
mentioned district , n correct and im
partial description of this hitherto
stop-motherly treated part of our
state mpy bo of public interest.
In this hope I have taken my pen in
hand , but even if I should bo mis
taken in regard to the value of the in
formation , I think myself nblo to
give in regard to'this part of Ne
braska , I shall still consider myself
well paid for my trouble in writing
this letter , if I only thereby should
guido ft few of my fellow-citizens to a
selection of a good future homo on
Unolo Sam's domain , and thereby free
themselves from the necessity of
strikes on account of ill-paid labor.
Lot mo hero remark that since 18G5
when the writer first behold the Ne
braska pr.n'rins in their virgin beauty ,
I have boot ; u comtant and zealous
advocate of the advisability for people
without sure incomes , to take up pub
lic land , and by their own effort work
themselves up to bccomo independent
owners of "hapny homos" sooner
than to swell the throng of applicants
for labor with its fluctuating supply ,
which often forces them to travel
from town to town , nnd every winter
almost v invariably compels them to
spend the last dollar which they , even
with the strictest economy and dili
gence , were able to save during the
summer. How enviable compared
1 ! with such a fate seems to mo even the
struggles of the homesteaders.
It is not my intention to undervalue
the desirability for nnyono under
taking to obtain a now homo on pub
lie land , to have at least n few hun
dred of dollars to start with ; but on
the other hand I have known nnd
can mention cases where people wh6
started with nothing but empty labor ,
hardened hands nnd an unconqnor-
' able will ; ovnn to succeed bettor than
others who had their hundreds nnd
even thousands to start with , nnd I
bolioro that what has boon clone can
bo dona again. The homestead law
does not prevent anybody from
working for others until tlio owner
has hia land in culture , and then is
able only to work for himself for the
balance of his life. From thin long
transgression lot mo proceed with my
theme :
The main difloronco of Northern
Nebraska from ics half-sister oouth of
the Platte river is two-fold.
1st. It has as a general thing moro
rolling land , and second , a great many
moro running streams , and on account
thereat also less depth to water than
Southern Nebraska. Both of those
scorns only to bo in its favor at the
present iimo , when Nebraska farmers
. are going largely into the raising of
corn , cattle and hogs , and lots wheat
and other small grain beautifully
alono.
In other regards Northern Nebraska
stands very far behind its sister half.
I mean in the number of its inhab
itants. The cause thereof is obvious.
Until of quito a late date it has had no
railroads , and consequently it has boon
moro trouble and expense to hunt for
a homo there than in Southern
Nebraska , 'and the north part of the
State has had no corporation influence
used whatever trying to bring residents
within her borders. Still another
cause for the poorly settled condition
of a good deal of thd best land in
Northern Nebraska exist , to-wit : It is
owned by speculators , who have
bought it for a trifle direct from the
government , and who unlike the rail
road companies are unwilling to sell or
improve , and far loss will make any
effort or expenditures to that effect ,
A single honorable exception to this
rule 1 shall mention further on.
MADISON COUNTY.
What a change since I was hero
several years ugp , I involuntarily ex
claimed when I stopped from the cars
of ono of the railroads tlmt centres at
Norfolk in Madison county. I was
so much moro able to notice this
change as in former years my own
humble little log cabin gave shelter to
my8"lt and my family not tar from
where Norfolk stands to-day. I shall
not dwell long on this tmbjoct , or go
into poetic eruptions by the remem
brance of the tirao when I walked
barofootodbehmd a pair of oxen break
ing Nebraska land. Suflloo it hero to
say that Madison county is traversed
by the beautiful Klkhoru river and its
north branch , Union crooks and other
strpamii , and is ono o ( the best and
best settled counties in all of North
ern Nebraska.
Only little railroad and speculators
land remain unsold , in Madison coun
ty nnd homesteads are out of question
to obtain , I found my former neigh-
bora all in very prosperous conditions
with fine frame houses and barns for
which the moro modest log or sod
houses had given room.
Norfolk with ite net of railroads will
in my estimation in the future become
what Bastings is to-day in Southern
Nebraska , ono of the largest und most
prosperous of the towns.
PIBKCE COCHTY.
'North of Madison county comes
Pierce county and connected there
with by a branch of the Sioux Oity &
Pacific railroad running from Norfolk
to Grelghton in Knox county , Tlio
land in JPieroaconnty varies very much ,
from some of the richest in the State
' to some almost worthless sand land.
In the east half of the county there is a
great deal of speculators land and some
railroad land. From Hndar , the first
station north of Norfolk , and north ,
only few houses are scon nnd quitn
lot of good land may yet bo obtains
at fair prices between there * nt
Pierce , th county seal. From Pierce
north the train runs through fine bet
torn lands traversed by small atreami
but hardly n house is in sight before
you come near to PJiunviow , n
fine little new town. For miles
around this plnco the country
was well sotttlcd on accoun
of no speculators land being founc
hero , as the west half of Pierce count ?
was never in market , but wasreservec
for the use of actual sotlors. From
PJainview I wont northeast into Knox
and Codnr counties. In the north
eastern part of Pierce county I fount
quite a number of now built , roomy
houses with adjoining barns on differ
ent quarter sections of land and with
considerable now breaking on oacl
quarter. I learned that they wore al
owned by n Mr. Thompson , of Driven
port , Iowa , who is n wealthy lam
owner In the district. During 188 :
ho had over 4,000 acres broken (81 (
acres on each quarter ) , nnd built tin
aforementioned houses on the farms
which ho now rents out , mostly t #
German farmoro. If other specula
tors would do likewise they would no
only benefit themselves very materi
ally , but also the whole district whore
they have invested their moans. In
Pierce county some vacant government
mont land remains untakon.
KNOX AMI ) CKDAll CONTIES.
As far as I saw and could ascertain ,
joth of those counties are very much
iliko in their general feature. Both
lave excellent land and an uncom
mon number of fine email crooks ,
rippling near the undulating surface ,
and also some larger streams carrying
the water into the Big Muddy ( Mis
souri river ) , which forms the north
: rn boundary of both counties. In
loth counties arc nlso found some
fory rough land , especially where the
loads of the creeks are found , and in
act land so rough that it is unfit for
anything but stock railing , for
which it probably is even better
idoptcd than the most level land , as
loth the soil and grass is good.
Some fine settlements are found in
> oth counties along tholargor streams ;
iut the cold weather forced me to re-
urn before I could visit tlioso settle-
nents , which was my intention when
' . started. The whole part of those
counties I visited , that ia the south-
vest part of Knox and the southeast
> art of Cedar was only ( next to the
nnd as described nbovo ) remarkable
iy the almost total absence of settlors.
? or over 20 milca I only found two
louses , and the same solitude reigned ,
as I wns informed , for at least 10 miles
'urthor cast until the trawler reaches
Smithlnnd poaloflico , located in about
ho center of Cedar county.
As a storm and very cold weather
c.imo upon us while \isited those nt
> rcsont inhospitable regions , wo wore
ndeod lucky in finding two dnya good
quarters by the family of Mr. A. M.
joe , who lives clone to a very fine lot
imbor on ono of thu branches of Bow
rook. The residence ia located on
oction 33 , township 31 , range 2 west ,
on the south line of the suction. A
roll-built frame house and a kind
; rooting moots the traveler who is
uoky enough to got sheltered by this
very estimable family. Mr. Leo wns
ibsont , but his wife , with the help of
, wo nearly grown up sons nnd a
[ nugjitor 13 years old , took carejof the
> lnco and its business , which consisted
> rinoipally in stock raising
or which the place wns
cmarknbly well selected , not only on
ccount of the shelter oflbrod to
[ took in the rather largo grove of Urn-
> or along the creak , but also near by ,
is the oldest son informed mo , that
or five miloj around there was run-
ilng water on each half section of
nnd. Mr. Loo's postoflico address is
Jlyvillo , Knox county , Nob.
Only very little and this very rough
ovornmont land remains in the part
f the two counties I visited. A. good
enl of land is vacant in Knox county
is well as in Antelope county yet ,
> ut I also learned that quito a lot of
oed land was offered for sale on long
rodit at the quito reasonable price of
13 per aero. AB this very likely ia
lolocted land , and part of it probably
iaa running water , I hardly see that
ny hotter place for engaging in stock-
aising in Nebraska can DO found.
Mr. 0. B.
Nelson , of Omaha , was
aid to bo general agent for the land
fferod for sale in the two counties.
I forgot to mention that in the
whole thus far described part of our

AKTKLOrii , WIIKKUill AND HOLT
COUNTIES.
On another recent trip to Long
'iuo , the present terminus of the
Sioux Oity & Pacific railroad , I stepped -
pod off nt Noligh , in Antelope county ,
where the U. S , land office for this
iistrict is located , in order to obtain
ull and correct information about the
vacant government land , and I am
iluasod to state that all information
' . desired was cheerfully given by the
gentlemanly oflicor of said land office ,
which also was the case at the land
office of North Platte , where I also
iiquirod for information , It is my
duty especially to mention this , as
quito u different treatment woa offered
no at another U. S , laud oflioo which
also visited. Ono of the officers
hero was entirely too big for his
toots , and when I asked for informa-
ion about his district , in place of
Hiving it himself or through his clerk ,
was handed the written address of
wo different persons , both living
iinny miles from railroads. The
whole affair , as conducted at this
office , struck roe as a partnership con
cern with outsiders to make extra
nonoy out of the business , nnd I
ihould be very much mistaken if this
s not the case. This would seem
nearly incredible but for the fact that
I BOOH other complaints in the Omaha
> apers , moat likely from the oflioo
lero apokon of , and that the addresses
of parties living miles off from the
office , to whom I there was directed ,
are still in my possession.
As before stated , I passed through
Antelope and Holt counties on my
way to Long Pine atntion in the uii-
oryanirod territory weat of Holt
ounty. The Elkhorn river runs
n a southeasterly direction
hrough both of sail' counties , and
n both sides of it is found some ex-
client bottomland , hcwevorsparcoly
ottlod ynt , and consequently it ia
cither owned by railroad companies or
npcculators. The bluffs are rather
rolling , nnd in some places oven
rough.
It struck mo that already in * ho
west part of Holt county the country ,
if by no means unfit for genera
farming , won still better adapted to
etockraising in its various branches.
At the head of Elkhorn river then
is a very largo area of bottom lent
Mibjcct to overflowing in the rainy
seaion , but containing excellent grass
well adapted for being made into
baled hay for shipment , especially BO
as it lays right close to the station
Stewart , and two next stations west
A largo portion of this hay land is yp
vacant government land. It lays it
the Niobrarn land district.
A careful examination of the town
ahipplata of Wheeler county ( Wheeler
county has double the amount of town
ships of ordinary counties in No
brnsl ; _ , or 32 in place of 1C ) , rcvealoc
the fact that hero is still a largo portion
tion of the land vacant yet or subject
to bo taken under the pro-omption ,
homestead or timber culture laws ,
and , also , that there is quito n lot ol
good land in said county , n
largo portion of poor or sandy land ,
especially in the west part thereof ,
and this , I believe , holds also good
for all the lands further west. It is
spotted , or good land surrounded by
bad land , or vice versa.
It will hero only be just to add that
while the land in Wheeler county ,
and also in parts of Antelope and
Holt counties are , at present , rather
situated some distance from railroads ,
that there is moro than a prospect
that the branch of the U. P. railroad
now running to Albion in.Boono
county will , before lone , bo extended
into this very district , and most earn
estly do I consider this part of the
state to contain the most valuable
vacant government land in Nebraska ,
nnd well worth n trip of the land
duntcro , ns hundreds nnd even thou
sands of good claims can yet bo taken
icro.
LONG I'INE AND THB COUNTRY AROUND.
Still further west , in the unorqan-
zed territory west of Holt county
[ judicially belonging thereto ) , the
Sioux City it Pnci fie trains lands the
passengers at Liing Pine Station. It
is after inidni lit when the trains
arrive here , ns.d passongorp have to
wait till next day before they can sat
isfy their curiosity in regard to the
surrounding country nbout which en
much h"B been Hind lately.
The first ghinco will surely cliunp-
point the beholder , for the land around
the now town is very sandy , and yet
lie will find a cornfield not far off ,
which shows thnt good corn was
rained hero.
On my first visit to Long Pino'I
icard BO much about the good land
urthor west , six to eight miles , at-
[ leone and Turkey crcokH , that I con
cluded to make n moro careful exam
ination of the country , nnd therefore
' . visited it n second time. I found
nest beautiful lajim : land there ,
ovol or slightly rolling , xtending
over at least 'throo townships ,
nnd the soil was nil that could
10 desired , or from good to rich , nnd
resting cither on clay subsoil or
gravel. I rtho s\\\v \ some smaller and
argor creeks with nrystnl clear water
running winter Und summer. Besides ,
on the LOIJK Pine creek there wns
considornblo timber growing in the
nrgo canyons , which uflbrds most ox-
collect nhdltor for stock.
In regard to farming , or whether
, his wast * of far-west territory of our
state in the near future bo n well set-
.lod and prosperous part thereof , the
only question that can arise in the
nogutivo is : Does it rain enough for
uccessftil farming ? Many , and
among them the oldest settlers , claims
lint it does. Others nro doubtful
'ot. ' It seems to bo a proven fact
hat all kind of vegetables grows
hero to perfection , also that corn
especially the earlier kinds ) can bo
aieod , while many still doubted that
ho largo and later ripening kinds
would mature hero.
In my estimation the whole country
rom Long Pine north to Niobrara
md Koya Palm rivers , and west to
Snake nud Minichadusa rivers , which
s mostly vacant yet , is wonderfully
well adapted to stock-raising , ana
may in time also prove to be a very
; opd farming country , but I hardly
bink it advisable for anybody to go
hero and at onop break up a lot of
and for extensive farming. Rather
; o slow and _ fool your way ! In cno
hing is the district hero decidedly
ahead of other parts of Nebraska. I
mean in regard to timber fpr fuel and
pncoa , nnd nlso partly for buildings ,
"n spite of the nearly total destruction
of the codara ( for fence posts ) which
s daily going on , where they can bo
reached in n day's drive from the sta-
ion , there is still pines , oak and
elm trees enough loft as a supply for
ho eventual settlers for n good many
roars. The destruction of the cedars
sould bo called shameful , but for the
act that poor men make a living
horoat who else could not have sot-
led in the district and supported their
'amilios. .
The question in my mind and why
[ have written this long latter is : Can
wo , at the present time , when BO ox-
raordinary ' efforts are being made , by
'air and foul moans , to draw not only
the foreign emigration , but also the
native Bottlers , to far off northern
states and territories ; can wo hero in
Nebraska sea this without at least to
; ivo the hint , that a far bettor coun-
: ry may bo found ' nearer by , and n
lountrythat a't least , in regard to
loalthy and pleasant climate , is all
, hat can desired , nnd whore thou
sands may yet find happy homos on
vacant government land. The an
swer to this question ought to bo
"No. "
To the boat of my ability I have
.riod to give this hint , ami in accord ,
anco with the atrioti t factf. and at
east for a part of the hero described
; erritory ( the eastern part ) can I witji
i good conscience advise anybody to
ook fpr a future homo and to receive
as a gift from Undo Sam ICO or 320 '
acres of free land under the homestead
and timber culture laws. In conclu
sion I will aay that it ia my most ab
solute conviction that land which to
day can bo had for the takiug , will ,
ere many years passes , bo entirely out
of the roach of the poor man or those
with only moderate means.
