Office of Superintendent, 14th Divis

M. H, McCarthy, The Postmaster,
O’Neill, Nebraska.
My Dear Sir: For some time this
office has been endeavoring to improve
the mail service on the Omaha and
Chadron by having a train scheduled
out of Omaha about midnight.
It is very pleasing to state that ef
fective October 7th, the Chicago &
North Western Railway Co. have ar
ranged to establish train 13 leaving
Omaha 12:15 a. m,, arriving Long
Pine 9:25 a. m., arriving Chadron, Ne
braska, 3:25 p. m. This will give u's
a daylight train westbound between
Long Pine and Chadron which has
been desired for a long time, and also
greatly expedite mails from the
Omaha gateway.
With this improved train service, the
Department has found it practable to
improve the mail service, and it is
proposed, effective October 7th, to es
tablish Railway Post Office service in
train 13 between Omaha and Chadron,
and in train 8 (formerly train 2) be
tween Chadron and Omaha, Railway
Post Office service will continue to be
performed in trains 3 and 22 (for
merly train 6) between Omaha and
Chadron. We will also have Railway
Post Office service in trains 11 (for
merly train 1) and train 2 (formerly
train 8) between Omaha and Oakdale,
and closed-pouch service between Oak
dale and Long Pine. This will, I am
sure, be greatly appreciated- bvthe
Northwestern Section of Nebraska".
Very truly yours,
The above announcement is pleas
ing news to people in this territory.
O’Neill people have been longing for
just such a train schedule as is now
going to be put in dperation. The new
change will bring the Omaha and
eastern Nebraska mail to us about ten
hours sooner than we are now re
ceiving it
The receipts of the postoffice and
the present population of the city en
titles us to free mail delivery and If
the proper requests are made the
service can be had. Many towns of
the size of O’Neill are now enjoying
this service and O’Neill can have it if
she goes after it. The new trair
schedule will make free delivery moi«*
desirable, because of the arrival of
the mail trains during the forenoon.
