CALL CITY CLERK'S ' YARN FAKE
Railroad Men Laugh at Day Dream
of Union Depot.
Norfolk has gained a union depot
What the Norfolk Commercial club
was unable to .accomplish wttli a
month's negotiations , the city clerk
World-Herald correspondent of Nor
folk , effected with a simple day dream
wired Into his Ornaba paper as "news.1
Here Is the union depot that the
city clerk built for Norfolk :
"The Northwestern railway has com
menced work on the new passenger
station which Is to supplant the bor
car which has served as a station for
more than a .year. The new station
will serve as a union depot. The Oma
ha road will use it and the Union
Pacific will probably arrange to use li
also later on. The statement that the
Union Pacific will use tbo station wll
come as a surprise to the majority of
the people of Norfolk. "
"That last sentence is certainly al
right , " said General Manager F. Wai
tera of the Northwestern passing
through Norfolk yesterday. "It Is a
surprise all right. It's a surprise to
me and I suppose that it is to Norfolk
Seriously speaking , though , we are
building a depot in Norfolk for our
own use. It's going to bo a good sta
tlon , a splendid station that other
roads entering the city could well use
But we are building the depot under
the same arrangements that exlstci
In the depot situation before the fire. '
By other local railroad men the dls
patch to the World-Herald was characterized
actorized as a simple "fake. "
The Union Pacific and the Omaha
roads are operating in Norfolk undo
a contract for Joint terminal arrange
ments. This contract is still in force
Tbo Northwestern , according tc
General Manager \Vnltern , Is building
n depot for Its own UNO , The Union
Pacific Is contemplating remodeling
the Interior of their Norfolk station ,
giving electric lighting , new fixtures ,
natural wood walls and greater room
In the walling rooms. That the Oma
ha line would cancel Its depot con-
Irnel with the Union Paclllc IH cliurac-
torU.ed as a simple "gucim" or fako.
