in the northwestern part of Dodge county, on the Scribner and Oakdale branch
of the F E & M V Ry, 36 miles from Fremont, the county seat.
It is located in a very rich farming and stock country, being mostly settled
by Germans and Bohemians. This is a lively trading point and is making
rapid strides in improvements, several new stores and residences having
been erected in the past year. A splendid brick school has been built
at a cost of $13,000. There are three grain elevators here having
a combined capacity of 58,000 bushels and shipping on an average 90 car
loads per day during the season. A splendid full roller system flouring
mill located here assists in the consumption of the surrounding products.
The Dodge Advertiser is the local journal and is edited by Mr G W Rosa,
one of the early settlers of Dodge. The financial interests of the
community are well taken care of by the Farmers State Bank, which has a
paid in capital of $15,000 and authorized to $60,000. There are two

FREMONT - The county seat of Dodge county,
and is located at the junction of the Union Pacific, Sioux City & Pacific,
the Fremont, Elkhorn & Missouri Valley Ry, and its Hastings & Geneva
& Lincoln branches, 47 miles west of Omaha. The site was originally
selected for its slight elevation of ground and being at the confluence
of the Platte and Elkhorn valleys, the two most picturesque and productive,
and now the most densely populated valleys in the state. It has at
this writing a population of 8,000, and shows an expenditure for private
and public improvements for the past year of $450,000. It is conceded
by its strongest rivals, that Fremont contains more fine residences than
any other western city of its size. In the center of the city is
a beautiful public park, upon the side of which stands the water tower,
130 feet in height, and from which over four miles of water mains are supplied
with cold and pure water. The system consists of a series of driven
wells from which the water is drawn by a powerful and effective steam pump
and forced into the tower, or in case of fire can be soconnected as to
give direct pressure to the mains. The principal streets and business
places are lighted with electricity and about four miles of horse car track
run through theprincipal and resident parts of the city.
Manufactures and Wholesale Houses - Among Fremonts most important manufacturing
plants are: Fremont Foundry and Machine Shops, whose pay roll and
amounts to nearly $50,000 a year; the Continuous Brick Kiln Co., with capacity
of 40,000 per day; the Nebraska Creamery claims to have the best equipped
creamery in the country, employs 35 to 40 hands, pays out in Fremont and
vicinity nearly all of its expenditures and has a yearly output of over
half a million pounds; the Fremont Milling Co have lately made large improvements
to their plant, and turn out a produce equal to any; the Fremont Manufacturing
Co. and Denny & Lumbard operate two extensive planing mills; the Fremont
Carriage Co., though lately organized, is making rapid strides forward
and is turning out a large amount of work equal to any in the west;
the Fremont Hemp and Twine Co, are extending their plant and employ 35
or 40 hands, the Globe Cornice Works, the Fremont Broom Co, a large number
of men, and turn out well known products; The Seeley Elevator Co, having
its headquarters here, is perhaps the most important of its kind in the
entire west; over 100 grain elevators in Nebraska bear their name, and
their buildings and machinery are now well represented in adjoining states.
Fremont also has a packing house with a capacity of 1,000 head of hogs
daily. Among the most extensive mercantile houses are the Nye &
Schneider Co, dealers in grain, lumber, coal and live stock, and owning
over twenty elevators in various parts of the state; Huette Son & Co,
wholesale hardware, stoves, furnaces and cornice manufacturers, and H J
Lee wholesale hardware, wagon and carriage material; Albers &
Co., wholesale liquors and cigars, and agents for Anheuser-Busch Brewing
Post Office - More mail is handled at Fremont with corresponding net
receipts than at any other office of its class in Nebraska. The carrier
system having only been in operation since July 1888, and at present employing
but four carriers. The last session of Congress passed an appropriation
for the erection of a government building here, and the commissioners have
already selected the site.
New Buildings & Public Improvements - The principal buildings completed
since our last edition are as follows: Dodge County Court House,
a magnificent piece of architecture, at a cost unfurnished of $60,000;
Fremont City Hall, a commodious and substantial brick, cost $11,000; two
public schools cost $35,000; the Masonic Hall erected by the fraternity
mainly for their own use at a cost of $35,000, is not only in its interior
as handsome and convenient as any Masonic Hall in the west, but presents
an imposing exterior, having a magnificent brown stone front, which is
both massive and beautiful. The German American Bank building is
another imposing brown stone edifice costing $20,000. The Anheuser-Busch
Brewing Association have just erected a handsome frame storage house at
a cost of $10,000. The Postoffice block cost $8,500, the Union Block
cost $10,000, The Fremont Carriage Works handsome and commodious building
occupies a prominent location in the heart of the city. Several costly
private residences have also been erected with the past year, one at a
cost of over $20,000. Over $40,000 have been expended within the
past year in paving. The Fremont Hemp & Twine Co., have just
commenced the erection of an extensive twine mill here which, with its
machinery, etc., will approximate $35,000 in cost. This will be run
in connection with their flax mills here and at Elkhorn and North Bend.
Educational -Twenty thousand dollars, or nearly $2.50 per capita of
its population, is yearly expended for the support of the city school system.
There are four capacious brick buildings heated by steam, two of which
have been nearly doubled in capacity during the present year; one more
wooden structure has also been built, making in the six buildings a seating
capacity for 2,000 pupils. All of the schools are nearly filled.
The school board is liberal in its appropriations and has provided the
rooms with all modern apparatus and one of the best corps of teachers to
be found in the country. The growth of the Fremont Business College
during its first year, just closed, has been most phenomenal. It
was due largely to the fact that President Hamlin is widely and most favorably
known throughout the northwest and has made a great record as a business
educator. Other features of the institution which have added greatly
to its popularity are the carpeted rooms, inside blinds, lace curtains,
model furniture, and unrivalled equipment. The business offices and
their belongings are most original and complete. The department of
telegraphy is conducted by a Western Union expert, the department of languages
and academic branches is in charge of a Michigan university graduate.
Everything is done in a rational manner and upon business principles, and
pupils who enter there learn many valuable lessons outside the books, and
carry thence thought and aspirations, which will surely lead to grand results
in the business world of the future. A strip of some ten feet wide
running the entire length of the main room or hall has been partitioned
off into various compartments which have been fitted up with every interior
convenience and expensive office fronts; these represent in every detail
two banks; a home bank with $1,000,000 in its own paper money, and an exchange
bank representing the manner in which drafts etc., are handled at the other
end; there is also a railroad ticket and freight office with all the paraphernalia
of such, including tickets to all points; a telegraph office, a wholesale
house with cards representing every commodity; a commission house etc.,
in fact the student is put through an actual business training here in
every possible way. In connection with this college is a complete
phonographic institute which afford a thorough training in phonography
and typewriting, composition and a general preparation for active life.
In addition to the above there is the Fremont Normal College, which was
established about three years ago, and has from the first been favored
with surprising success.
Churches - The St James Episcopal and the Congregational churches have
magnificient edifices. The Methodist Episcopal, Presbyterian, Danish
Lutheran, German Lutheran, German Evangelical, Church of Christ, Seventh
Day Adventist, and Roman Catholic denominations are all established in
handsome homes, and have large attendances..
Societies - Masonic: Fremont Lodge No 15 A F & A M,
Signet Chapter No 8 R A & M, Hiram Council No 7 R & S M, Mount
Tabor Commandery No 9 K T, Emmet Lodge of Perfection No 5 A A S R..
Odd Fellows: Centennial Lodge No 59, Apollo Encampment No 22, Fremont

No 21 U R, Damascus Division No 30 U R,; Miscellaneous: Modern Woodman,
K of H, A O U W, American Legion of Honor, Royal Arcanum and Grand Army
of Republic are all represented here by prosperous bodies. Among
the social features of the city is the Fremont Club, with a membership
of 125, of which the president is L D Richards and the secretary if John
Thomson. The rooms are fitted up with all of the modern applicances,
and this merchants club is considered one of the finest in the state.
The Women’s Christian Temperance Union is a very large and prosperous organization
here, owning an elegant frame building opposite the city park, which is
equipped with an ample library and has an auditorium that seats 800 people.
The Y M C A has new and elegant quarters; a fine library is being gathered
and a fully equipped gymnasiun is well patronized.
Newspapers - Fremonts press representation is by three daily papers,
HERALD, TRIBUNE and FAIL(each issuing weeklies) and the Platte River ZEITUNG(German
weekly). But few cities of the population of Fremont are more creditably
represented in the journalistic field. The HERALD has been under
the editorial and business management of N W Smails for the past 12 years,
during which time it has been regarded as the standard democratic paper
of eastern Nebraska. The TRIBUNE with Frank Hammond as business manager
and Ross L Hammond as editor, deals out to its readers the principles of
true republicanism. The FLAIL is a daily and weekly published by
The Flail Publishing Co. It has been recently removed from North Bend and
is having a large and increasing circulation. The Platte River ZEITUNG
is a German democratic weekly and has a good circulation of Dodge and adjoining

NORTH BEND - is situated in southwestern
part of Dodge county, 16 miles west of Fremont, the county seat, and 63
miles west of Omaha via Union Pacific Ry, on which it is a local point,
although trains on F E & MV RR may be taken by driving three miles.
The population, according to unofficial reports of 1890 census is 1,000.
The Platte river is bridged at this point and makes the town easy of access
from Saunders county on the south, and a profitable county on the south,
and a profitable trade is thereby done with the rich agricultural district
in that direction as well as with that portion of Dodge county in which
the town is located. Large shipments of grain, cattle and hogs are
made from this point, and this section of the state, on both sides of the
river, is a highly prosperous one. North Bend has two elevators,
a flouring mill of 100 barrels capacity just erected at a cost of $10,000,
two banks each with $50,000 capital, two good hotels, two live newspapers,
a commodious brick opera house, and a score of substantial business houses
besides many lesser ones. The religious denominations represented
are Methodist, Episcopal, Presbyterian and the Congregational and Christian
churches. Bonds have recently been voted for the erection of a new
