At the outset, lot me say our people
have no fooling against any psrt of the
stato or nny city. Wo are divided on
county option' and other police regula
tions just as they are elsewhere.
The present state capital is forty-five
miles from Iowa, fifty-five miles from
Kansas, 165 miles from the .north line
of Nebraska and 385 miles from the
west lino. It takes one of our people
thrco days at big expense to go to the
state house and do any business. We
pay our share of the taxes. Lincoln
county, alone, paid 1010 state taxes in
the sum of $24,987.00; in 1909 $25,817.00.
All are agreed that our state is now
n a position to build a suitable capitol,
but before this is considered, the loca
tion should bo selected; that will be fair.
A little history in connection with the
location of our present capital may not
be out of place, A young man went to
Lincoln soon after the .location of the
capital, with a little money. He was
going to buy a lot, and being acquainted
with one of tho men activo in the m-
tcrpriso, he sought his advice, and was
told tho plan was, in a couplo of years,
to locatn tho capital at Lone Tree (now
Central City.) This young man lives
at North Platte to-day,
When Lincoln was selected, it was
claimed that it would bo the Saginaw
of tho west, furnishing salt for all the
country from the Missouri River to the
west coast. Millord was first agreed
upon, on account of its good water, but
that did not suit the land speculators,
bo it was placed nt Lincoln, whoro they
claimed they had good air and woro
going to distribute salt.
No one wants to hurt Lincoln or any
othor town. No one, is for or against tho
brewery in this matter. Givo us the
right to vote on a reasonable propoBi
tion. The attention of our members in
tho legislature in this matter is invoked.
