HtiCOMMEXIlS AN ADDITION
TO THE FEDOAL IJUILDINO.
An inspector spent yesterday in
town Inspecting tho federal building,
und after investigating the work room
of the postofflco recommended thb
erection of a one-story 30x60 addition
on tho wedt side of the present build
ing. Tho growth of tho postal bus?
onss in North Platte has boon such
that employes are much hampered in
their work by lack of room and whlit,
a 30x60 addition would provide more
additional spaco than is now needed,
it would bo nono too largo in. tho
courso of a few more years. Whether
tho recommendation of tho inspector
will receive prompt attention and the
addition authorized is not of courso
Tho inspector also recommendca
that the Interior of the federal build
ing be repainted and that the soft
marble on tho floor bo taken out and
replaced with a harder substance. .

I have just returned from a trip of investigation of thb
motor car situation, -and I.find that there is a marked short
' age of good cars everywhere. This Is most marked among
the Big Six, those cars being the old standard cars, which
for, years have predominated in their respective price
I have the pleasure to represent two of these popular
sellers in North Platte Dodge Brothers and Chandler
s motor cars.
The Dodge shortage is universal, with the factory pro
ducing COO cars a day, they are 100 per cent oversold, and
the Omaha distributor reported the immediate need of 500
, Dodge cars. Dodge shipments to me have been good, but
t the deiriand-Js pYcrwhelming.My only suggestion to you
Is to get your car ordered today, and I will make delivery
to' you in the order.of the receipt of your signed order.
I also found Chandler denlers everywhere oversold, in
the larger centers running into hundreds of cars.. The new
models, with their beautiful lines and complete equip
ment have taken the market by storm. Buyers generally
know that it is the only high grade six which can still bo
bought at last ycars's prices, $1795, factory, which is from
$200 to $800 lower than any comparable car, and in many
instances lower than many other assembled cars, which a
year and a half Qgo sold for much less. Extreme value for
the price is the reason for present Chandler over-demand.
The "Dispatch" four passenger Speedster model is far ov
er sold, and an order today will obtain a factory delivery
for you about the 1st of July. An early order for a touring
car will obtain a quicker delivery. Use your own judgment
under these conditions.
I am trying to hold a demonstrator of both iJo.dgo and
Chandler and you may test either out at your convenience,
without any obligation to buy. .
Yours for Good Cars and Good Service on thcCars I Sell,
J. V. ROMIGH, Dealer

At a meeting held nt Kearney Sat

along tho Lincoln Highway in Nebras
ka was represented, with tho excep
tion of Deuel a unanimous and co-op '
orative movement was ontlorscd to tho

holm bill provisions and suggested a
courso that might bo pursued to no
curo titlo to tho lands within tho rnll-t-oad
right of way, to bo used for road
purposes. He went into detail as re
garded the original land grant to the
Union Pacific, tho Norrls bill passed
by congress in 1912 nnd how this of
fered a courso of action, namely, thai
of counties condemning land within
the railroad right of way where such
land was to bo used for road purpos
cs. Ho held that inasmuch as the Nor
rls provision permitted tho railroad to
sell lands within its right of way the
state and county had an equal right
to condemn such land If it wero
needed for road work. Ho urged that
all counties in Nebraska, affected by
this movement, take co-oporativo ac
tion to hnve tho roads In question
Figures wero shown that In crosa.

at present located runs a total dls
tanco of 200 miles on the U. P. right
of way, twenty-eight miles, of which
arc in Lincoln county.
A permanent organization was ef
fected, and this organization has
pledged its co-operation with county
boards in carrying out a plan to have
the right of way condemned for road
purposes, and that such proceedings
be taken at once.
