The trade of Northern Thomas coun
ty mostly goes 'to Oberlin, and will so
continue until Colby opens for busi
ness and offers inducements to trade,
which she will shortly do. Oberlin
merchants are enterprising.
Mr. Mills, one of the proprietors of
the new town site, is preparing to
build . His five car? of lumber will be
hauled from the railroad, a distance of
twenty miles, as soon as it can be done.
Mr. Mills' postoffice is Colby.
A. B. Kneudsen and A. Christianson

Our young friends, Charles Coover
and Almond Vincent are engaged in,
boring wells, and they intend to can
vas for the sale of windmills this sea
son. They can be found two miles
east of the new town site, on the Dog.
We may expect a large number of
land seekers here from the Eastern

soon as the weather gets settled and
congenial. Ottawa and Mitchell
counties will contribute a good s'z.ed

preparing to locate a colony of his peo

We call the attention of the railroad
authorities to the importance ot send
ing an agent to monument. The set
tlement of the county this summer
wi!I be rapid, a gre.it many will desire
to read; the county by mil via Monu
ment, it being the nearest point to the
canter of the county and the canter of
settlement. A great many settlers ask
that an agent be sent to Monument.
COLBY, THOMAS COUNTY,
R. M. Goucher, the popular jeweler j
of Minneapolis, Kan., was the first to
enroll his name on the Cat's subserin-
tion list. By the way, we have quite a
list at Minneapolis, and hope we may
be the means of locating c number of
those who are on our list on the broad
and beautiful praries of Thomas? county.
When a man goes to a new country
to look for land, it is essentially neces

Since the above was written a town
site has been located 2 miles north of

and the name proposed for the new
town is Comjy. Water can be obtained
on the netv town site at a depth of 30

We have received the initial number
ot the Thomas County Cat, D. M.
Dunn, proprieto-, and E. P. Worces
ter, editor and publisher. Messrs.
Dunn and Worcester are too well
known here to require an extended no
tice of their peculiar fitness to conduct
such a journal as Kansas people de
mand. That the enterprise will be a fi
nancial success, we have not the slight
est doubt. Thomas county is a portion
of our magnificent western area and the
rush to that point rivals the story of the
eaily days in the history of Kansas.
We are perfectly familiar with the re
gion under discussion, and know from
personal observation it ranks with the
best pastoral portions of the State. Its
prairies ::ie long level stretches of ex
cellent grass, the famous "Sesteria
dactyloides" or Buffalo predominating.
The title of the paperwhich our friends
have, inaugurated, while perhaps it
lacks euphony, is expressive and char
acteristic of a western journal. The
Cat is published at Colby, on the beau
tiful Prairie Dog one of our historical
streams in Indian traditions, and is
destined to become a great cattle and
sheep center, the two prominent indus
tries of Kansas. We ay success to the
Thomas Cat. and its mewing will soon
be heard as lively as its namesake on a

THE INTER OCEAN
In 1SS5 The Inter Ocean enters upon
the fourteenth year of its existence.
Given unusual confidence by the peo
ple in its early days it has steadily
grown in favor until this day, when
the publishers take, pride in the fact
that the paper goes into more homes
and has a greater number of readers
than any publication west of the Alle
ghanies. From the beginning The Inter Ocean
has stood firmly by the principles of
the Republican party, and has, in sea
son and out of season, contended for
"protection to American industry." It

mission of the Republican party is fin
ished ; on the contrary it believes that,
purified by adversity, it will in the near
future again rise to the higher planes
of thought and action and be complete
ly restored to the confidence of the
merican people. The most import
ant agencies in accomplishing this re
sult will be Republican journals. If a
reliable, stanch Republican newspaper
was important when the Republican
party was in power, it is doubly so now
that tne Demociacy control tue .Na
The Inter Ocean will in the future
as in the past be the medium trough

will be given to the people. It will
voice the convictions of advanced Re
