Thursday Evening Edition
Club Monday Evening Well Attended and Some Questions
Discussed in Lively Fashion
Considered and Committees Appointed to Look Further Into the Matters
and ReportInteresting Talk by Prof Taylor Also
Part of the Programme
A special meeting of the Mc
Cook Commercial club Monday
evening brought out a fair repre
ssntation of the membership and
several special matters were- con
sidered and some action taken
The first subject discussed was
that of the proposed reduction
of train service on the Burling
ton main line the contemplated
taking off of trains 9 and 10
consolidation of 16 and 2 at Den
ver etc
Supt Flynn was present also
the new trainmaster J E John
son Supt Flynn stated that
the move was contemplated and
that the new time card was in
course of printing when the com
pletion of the card was held in
abeyance by telegraph instruc
tions from Ciucago Just what
would be done he could not at
that time state The action pro
posed however is only the reg
ular winter schedule in effect
last year
The matter was discussed at
same length the sentiment being
that an effort should be made by
the club acting in harmony with
the people on the Imperial branch
and elsewhere o have trains TJ
and 10 run at least to McCook
The talks of members anade
plan the fact that not only Mc
Cook but all the surrounding
country would suffer from delay
ed mail that passengers on the
Imperial branch would be delay
ed here for 2 1 hours as well as
mail for all that section of the
country and that other inconven
iences would necome eitective
fers every advantage from the
railroad point of view for th j
dispatching and operating of the
trains having facilities only eq
ualled at Lincoln and Denver
After considerable discussion a
committee of three was named by
President Cordeal to cooperate
with Supt Flynn in the effort
The committee is composed of F
M Kimmell F A Pennell and

C II Meeker thought we- do
not have the water supply to
make such a plan effective on a
large scale and referred to the
fact that we have 2000000
worth of surface water flowing
by our door every year which
should be utilized gravity irri
gation being finally much cheap
J F Wey bright was more fav
orably disposed toward pumps as
was also W B Mills Both of
these gentlemen gave facts and
figures1 from neighboring towns
where pumps are in service and
where others are being placed for
that purpose at Stratlon Culbert
son etc
Mr Meeker conceded that the
pumps could be used effectively
and profitably where the water
bearing sand and gravel aie of
sufficient deptth but that there
is difficutly an this section to
secure such sand
While admitting the inestimable
value of the water nOAv coursing
its way by our doors every day
Mr Mills spoke of the tremen
dous expanse of storing the wat
er arguing that in the meantime
pumps are available at compara
tively small expense and thai
they are practical within their
capacity This interesting dis
cussion finally culminated in the
appointment of a committee o
three to further investigate the
subject and report at the next
