The Northwestern Railroad Announces
That It Is Now Too Late to Reopen
Negotiations on the Union Depot
Even Though It Were Possible ,
Apparently Norfolk's clmnco of BO-
curing a union depot liavo gone. The
Commercial club has abandoned nogo
tliitlons looking to that end. The
Northwestern railroad announces tlia
It Is now too Into to further consldci
any proposition regarding a union eta

Chairman A. J. Durland of the Com
merclal club union depot committee
who had done everything within his
power and all that any'jody ' could have
done looking toward th'i gaining of a
handsome union passenger station foi
Norfolk , announced Thursday morn
ing that any further efforts In behalf
of the project were useless and that
there was no further hope of securing
the desired end for the city.
Mr. Durland's determination to drop
the depot negotiations was caused by
the result of a conference held be
tween the city council , acting In an
Informal and unofficial capacity , and
a number of citizens who had origin
ally objected to the closing of Philip
avenue for a Northwestern Indepen
dent station and who took the same
stand with regard to vacating the av
enue for a union depot. While some
of them announced that they would
not stand In the way of a compromise
a few of the original remonstrators
remained firm in their attitude that
Philip avenue must not be closed for
a depot , declined" to accept the com
promise offered by which their past
expense in the matter should bo reim
bursed and said that they were un
willing to withdraw active opposition
to the proposed street vacation. They
said that the best interests of the city
demanded that Philip avenue be kept
open and that future generations
would' thank them for resisting efforts
to vacate the thoroughfare.
Informed that legal delays would
arise In securing the street vacation
for the union depot , Mr. Durland declared -
clared that it was useless to make
further effort looking toward a union
depot for Norfolk , since the railroads
liad explicit'specified that ( if the
union station were built in Norfolk ,
the proposition closing Philip avenue
from Eighth street to the Northwest-
em's right of way , closing Seventh
street from Madison to Park avenues
and giving assurance that adjoining
property needed for the depot could
be bought reasonably , must come
quickly. With the chance gone of
making any immediate offer of these
provisions to the railroads , in return
for the construction of a creditable
union depot costing at least $40,000
and the removal of switching from
Norfolk avenue , Mr. Durland and oth
ers interested in securing the depot
gave up the attempt when word came
from the Northwestern that any ac
tion which might be taken hereafter
would be too late to reopen union de
pot negotiations.
Regret in Norfolk.
There is a deep and unconcealed
regret in Norfolk over the apparent
fact that the city has lost the only
chance it ever has had and perhaps
the only chance it ever will have , to
secure a creditable union passenger
station. Many consider the failure to
gain the station , when it was so nearly -
ly within the city's grasp , as nothing
short of a public calamity.
The chance for the union station
came upon the city suddenly and at
a moment when it was hardly expect
ed. It flew In at the open window
when the directorate of the Commer
cial club was not unanimously of the
opinion that It was worth ta king ; U
fluttered about for an Instant before
any organized method of seizing It
had been developed and then , while
plans were still being discussed , it
flew out of the window and away ,
never to return.
City Was Solid on One Point.
During the three days during which
Norfolk discussed the project senti
ment in favor of a union depot like
that which was In sight , grow rapidly.
Toward the last the city was prac
tically solid upon the point that a
union station of the dimensions pro
posed was Inestimably to be preferred
over two separate stations. Not a
man could be found In Norfolk at the
end who did not believe that a fairly
handsome and creditable union sta
tion was not to be mentioned In the
same breath with two smaller Inde
pendent stations. The final difference
of opinion lay In advisability of giv
ing up Philip avenue. Probably at
least ninety percent of the people
wore In favor of vacating Philip av
enue because they considered that the
only means of securing the desired
union station ; those who opposed It
argued that they were as much In fa
vor of a union depot as any of thrs
who were bringing pressure to bear
upon them In the street closing mat
ter , and perhaps more than some ;
while they were anxious for a union
station , they could not see In such
a structure enough of value to war
rant them In withdrawing their oppo
sition to the closing of Philip avenue.
The claim was made that there
ought to Imvo been fiomox other loca
tlon feasible for a union depot beside
that Involving the vacation of a streu
which , having already been the sub
ject for legal controversy , had sllgh
chance of being vacated In any oven
without nctlvo remonstrance and de
lay In thi ) court * . Those- opposed to
the street closing argued that the
proposition under which a union depot
pot was promised was unfair in tha
It put upon thorn the responsibility o
preventing a union depot when In fac
they wore , at the outset , more enthu
slastlc In regard to the deslrablllt }
of a union depot than a number o
other citizens.
In reply to this argument camewort
from the Union Pacific that anothei
location seemed unacceptable ant
from the Northwestern that /the ofll
clals of that railroad had determine. !
to proceed Immediately with their
own Independent station.
Proposed New Northwestern Depot.
The new Northwestern depot to bo
built In Norfolk will bo constructed
on the same plans which were drawn
for the Northwestern station nt Fort
Atkinson.V,1 . The bulldlnir Is n
long , low structure of much the saint
dimensions as that at West Point
though a better building , built of stone
and brick , with waiting rooms and
apartments for men and women. The
plans show a tiled lloor. Fort Atkin
son Is a town of about 'Norfolk's size ,
having at the last census ; i,0ii. ;
The depot will bo located on the
east side of the N6rthwcstern tracks
between Madison and Philip avenues.

Dr. W. II. Pllger was summoned at

Depot Apparently Dcnd.
Whether or not Mr. Mohlor's trip to
Norfolk had any slgnlllcunco that
might mean further hopu UH to a
union depot after all , In view of his
statement that ho would confer with
thu Northwestern general manager to
morrow regarding lliu depot situation ,
was not apparent. Not having seen
Mr. Walters since ( ho conference last
Saturday , Mr. Mohler was unpropaiod
to ilellnllely say either that the union
depot project was dead and burled or
I hat It had been burled allvo and
might lie rug up 1'iom Its grave and re
vived to life. Those who talked with
ilin , though , seemed rather of the
iplnhm that the union dupol was dead
ind that Mr. Muliler'u conference to
morrow with Mr. Wallers would sim
ply be ono to diagnose the casu and
sign the death curllllcale.
Looks Over the Debated Ground.
Mr. Mohler and the accompanying
otllclals were met at the Union Pacific
station by a number of Norfolk cltl-
/ens who had been advised that the
special train would arrive. Immodl-
itely the railroad men were escorted
to the block between Madison and
. 'hlllp avenues , which had been dis
cussed as the silo for a union depot.
Mr. Mohler pointed out that the vaca
tion of Madison avenue would not
lermit a union station because of the
allroad Intersection there , destroying ,
10 said , thu value of the place for a
lepot building site.
Why Philip Avenue Is Needed.
Asked In regard to the need of va
cating Philip avunuo lor a union Bta
lon. MiMoliler mild : "Them Is
ilenty of room in the triangle to build
i depot. The long trains are what
naku the street necessary. Norfolk
s situated on the mainline of the
Northwestern railway and the lime
vlll cpnio when that toad's trains will
jo twelve and fourteen cars long , Just
IB are our overland trains.
Would Mean Sure Trouble Ahead.
"If the depot were built without
closing Philip avenue , trains would
( and across the stieet. It would be
jut a short time before people pass-
ng along the Htreet and as the city
; rows the tralllc will Increase would
jegln to complain and criticise be-
ause Mains were blocking the load.
Ve KM'O been through the mill over
and over again and there Is no use
rylng to dodge the thing. You might
IB well prepare for that trouble be-
ore you begin. For it would surely
ome. It's just like making a pur-
hase. When you buy an article you
< now you'll have to pay for it or at
east you ought to. And wo know
here would be trouble about trains
cross the street if the avenue were
ot closed , I know the situation In
hat regard as well as I know the ten
ommandments and better , I pre-
11 me.
Would Need Commodious Grounds.
"If we built a union depot In Nor-
oik It ought to be ono large enough
o comfortably handle the tralllc for
ears to come. There should be at-
ractlvo grounds and ample drive-
vays. But you gentlemen will admit ,
believe , that you must have room
n which to lay out those things. "
Would Have Spent Over $40,000.
The railroads would have been wili
ng to put at least $10,000 Into a union
lepot In Norfolk , according to Mr.
"Was our proijoslllon , aside from
acklng the closing of Philip avenue
a satisfactory one ? " asked A. J. Dur-
and , who has so ably engineered the
depot matter as chairman of the Com-
ncrclal club union depot committee.
'Was the requirement that the build-
ng cost at least $40,000 satisfactory ? "
"Oh , I think so , " said Mr. Mohler ,
apparently of the opinion that at least
hat much would have been necessary
for the station that was contemplated.
As to Location North of Avenue.
Asked as to why a union depot
could not bo placed north of Norfolk
avenue on the forty acres of vacant
and owned there by tljo Union Pa
clflc , Mr. Mohler said the location
would not be convenient to Norfolk
[ jeople. And before the point could
jc thoroughly discussed the railroad
ofllclals were summoned to lunch In
their dining car.
Accompanying Mr. Mohler were Su
