UNION PACIFIC WILL TALK WITH
LETTER FROM VICE PRESIDENT
Secretary Mathewson Has Received a
Letter From Vice President Mohler
of the Union Pacific , Stating That
He Will Act on Union Station.
There Is a possibility thnt the con
templated station of the Northwestern
will ha u union Htutlon according to
iv letter Just received by Secretary
Mnthowson of the Commercial club.
Vice President and General Manager
Mohlcr of the Union Pacific has writ
ten him to the effect that ho will take
up the matter of such a station with
the Northwestern authorities. To
date this Is the most encouraging no
tice that has been given to the desire
of Norfolk and It is reasonable to be
lieve that careful consideration by the
Union Pacific and Northwestern au
thorities would make the now station
sv union station. It is quite probable
that such may be the case now that
both roads have had the possibilities
of such a scheme brought forcibly be
Some time since Secretary Mathew
son wrote General Manager Mohlerof
the Union Pacific detailing the lack of
depot facilities for the Northwestern
in Norfolk and the unsatisfactory con
ditlons of the Union Pacific station.
At the same time he offered the help
and goodwill of the city In any fair
way toward making It possible for the
building of a union station. It was In
answer to this letter that word was
received announcing the Intention of
the Union Pacific authorities to take
up the matter with the Nortbwestern.
The M. & O. need not be worried
over as a block in the matter for they
will undoubtedly come Into a union
station if the other two roads go in.
In reality this road Is part of the
Northwestern system and , as such ,
will follow with the Union Pacific If
the old Union Pacific station is aban
