   Hastings, the county seat of Adams county, is at an altitude of 1,934 feet, has a population of 13,630 (census of 1890), and is the central point of a network of railways in the heart of the South Platte country, 151 miles from Omaha. It is on the G. I. & St. J. division of the U. P. Railway, the Republican Valley branch of the M. P. railway, the York and Hastings line of the F. E. & M. V. R. R., the main line of the B. & M. R. R. from Omaha to Denver, and three branches of the B. & M. R. R., to Kearney, to Aurora and to Red Cloud. The city is a bright example of thrift, enterprise and perseverance, especially in wholesale and rail mercantile operations and educational institutions. The manufacturing opportunities, too, are excellent. The city enjoys a splendid system of public improvements. The water works were constructed at a cost of $85,000 and $25,000 have since been expended in extending the system. The water is clear, cold, sparkling, and inexhaustible, the pressure being sufficient to throw water to the tops of the highest buildings, it affords an excellent protection against fire. A paid fire department and police department are under metropolis control. Hastings is handsomely lighted, being supplied not only with gas works, but also a fine electric light plant, with furnishes 600 incandescent and 60 arc lights. Two street railways have about 17 miles of track, making communication with the various parts of the city quite easy. The Adams County court house, which is just being completed at a cost of $76,000, occupies a commanding position, is the most attractive building in the city, and one of the finest of its kind in the state. The State Asylum for the Incurable Insane is another fine edifice which was erected by the state at a cost of $75,000 on 160 acres of ground presented by the citizens of Hastings for that purpose. There are at present 120 insane confined within the institution. The Hastings College, under the control of the Presbyterian denomination, occupies a prominent place among the educational institutions of the West. It has two fine substantial buildings, surrounded by one hundred acres of handsome grounds, which have been laid out and ornamented with great care and taste. Thirty-five acres have been reserved for a college campus, which contains one of the highest elevations about the city. The college is heavily endowed. The Academy of the Sisters of the Visitation is a large and commodious building costing $75,000 and affording good accommodations for the growing attendance on the school. The new High School is a model of architectural beauty, accommodates 600 pupils, and was built at a cost of $25,500. Four additional buildings of a substantial character are provided for the ward schools. There are five banks ands four other financial institutions, with a total capital of $1,385,000. Many fine private buildings and business blocks have been erected. The Walback block costing $35,000, the Opera House and others. The newspapers are what we might expect in such a live progressive community; they are the Hastings Daily Nebraskan, Gazette-Journal, Tribune, Union Worker, Hastings Democrat, Hastings Republican, and Weekly Independent. There are 13 civic societies representing the various orders. The churches are Congregational, Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, Episcopal, Catholic, German Evangelical and Christian.
