Stale Railway Commission Hears Com. plaint Against Missouri Patific From Friday Iuily. The state railroad commission made findings In order yesterday in the complaint of William F. Gillespie, engaged in the shipment of stock and grain, and others of Mynard, Neb., against the Missouri Pacific Railway company and the Western Union Tel egraph company. It is charged that the defendants have substituted a telephone service for telegraph service at the depot of the Missouri Pacific at Mynard, and that the telephone service la Inade quate and unsatisfactory. It Is also charged that the facilities for doing commercial business, by telegraph hc-rt-tofora existing have been dis continued, to the detriment of the complainant. A hearing was had In the above A. E. LeeSiey, of Greenwood, is a new addition to our Semi-Weekly case at the office of the commission subscription list this week. Mr. on January 25, 1908, at which time Leesley was in the city today and it was developed by the evidence that op. n the O'Neill lineal the Burling ton ufier it had been closed by snow drifts, says the people in this part of the state have no conception as to the extent of the storm along that line. Cornfields were really little protection. The snow was blown through the fields an into the railroad cuts, and along with the snow came a great deal of dirt. In some places the rotary plow bored a hole through drifts higher than the plow itself, and these drifts were packed, the dirt aiding In mak ing a more difficult compound to move. To make it worse a warm day followed the worst and first storm and packed the snow hard. In some places It was almost as difficult to move as Ice. The line is open, how ever, and a heavy business Is being done. State Journal. ADAM SCHANTZ IS DEAD V V DAILY PERSONAL NEWS ?
