YOUNG MEITS BEETJEUCAir CLUB.
On Wednesday evening a number of
the young republicans of North Platte
met at J. S. BToagland's office for the
purpose of organizing-a Lincoln County
Younff Men's Republican Club. The
boys were enthusiastic in the discussion
of the question of orgauization. A tern
porary organization was effected by
tho selection of H. C. Nesbitt as chair
man and W. V. Hoagland secretary.
Committees on constitution and by-laws
and resolutions were appointed. It was
was resolved to ask the ward primaries
in the city to give tho club one delegate
to tho county convention from the First
ward, two from the Second ward and
one from tho Third ward.
The club adjourned to meet at the
court house next Monday at 7:30 o'clock.
This meeting is intended to be a big or
ganization rallr. Short speeches will
be made by Messrs. Grimes', Hoagland,
French andliVilcox on the "Young Man
in Politics." There will also be speeches
by the young men. A report will be
read from tho committees, und a perma
nent organization effected. . Every
young republican in the city and county
should be out to this meeting and there
can be formed here" a Young Men's Re
publican Club that will be second to
none in the state. The public i3 also
invited to attend.
Tho young republicans should ba
given great encouragement in their ef
forts to thus organize the young men.
Tho timo has been when this element
was looked upon as infants, so to speak,
to vote and blindly follow in the foot
steps of their fathers. A man must be
ton to fifteen years in politics before he
is considered a competent person to be
recognized . Thus" has arisen the ex
pression that a young man is a republi
can because his father is. This should
not be. The" young mnn should bo
taught to think for himself and to do
this he must be organized. This recog
nition can only come under tho present
condition of things from an organized j
and united effort of the young men
themselves. Wonders are being accom
plished in the oast in thi3 manner. In
.Lancaster county this fall Sam E. Low,
a young man about twenty-one years
old, was nominated by the republicans
for clerlrof the district court," the best
ffice In tho county. As a result the
young men-are out iaLswarms helping to
eloct the county ticket. Let us have
seme of this enthusiasm here. Let us
get the young men interested and the
party need have, no fear of being de
feated. Come out Monday ovoning and
see tho boys organize. '
The North Platta and Wyoming' Eailway.
Ed Sear of tho Golden Jlule store and
Mr Gering, toth of, Gering,- returned
last week from North Platte where they
-have-beon negotiating" mhoEBcefff o
the Burlington road. They aro trying.
to get the new road to he built through.
Gering and came back nopef ul. -
Messrs. Martin Gering and Ed W.' Sayre
went through, here on their way to North
Platte last week. They conferred with
the people or. .worm iiatie ana are in
hopes of getting a railroad from 2orth
Platte to Gering. The Gering Courier
says: "They found the people there en
thusiastic, by reason of encouragemen
which, had been extonaea. a company
will be organized at once,, after further
conference with the Union Pacific re
ceivers, and there is good reason to be
lieve that a road from North Platte to
Gering will be the result and not in. the
remotely distant future, either. Banner.
The railroad question has occasioned
considerable discussion Jhere; this week?
There is little difference of opinion as to
the extent to wnicn it woum oe proper
to encourage the scheme, by voting
bonds if necessary, as it will no doubt be.
There would be twenty-two miles of
the county line up to Gering if the road
went no farther at present. The valua
tion of that amount would be fully eight
or ten thousand dollars per mile, and
would double our assessment at onco, to
say nothing of the influx of population
and property which would follow the
building of a road. It would evidently
be a good business proposition, therefore,
to vote bonds, if nothing was to be se
cured except the assessable property, for
the road would more than pay it itself
However, the publio is agreed as to the
necessity for a road on every other
count, and the need was never better
realized than now, when wheat, for in
stance, is only worth 30 cents at the rail
road and it costs that to take it there
As a county we need a railroad to put
us into communication with outside
markets,where we can sell what we raise
under canals that we already havo,worse
"than we need more canals. If a matter
of ten or fifteen thousand dollars, in
county bonds will assist ln.brmging in a
railroad 'believe tKenxranty would
say the word on demand. Gering Courier.
