Wants Station at Crookston.
A station kept open by the Norlh-
western road al the town , of Crooks-
ton , Cherry county , according to a
Lincoln Dispatch , Is what Max E.
Vlertol wants. Ho called on the rail
way commission and filed a vol
uminous complaint asking that an
agent bo maintained at Ihe station built
many years ago but never opened. Mr.
Viertol said among the lasl acts of
tins old board of traiiHporatlon was an
order requiring Ihe Norlhwostorn road
to build a depot at Crookston. The
work was done In the fall and the
company promised to have an agent
on duty In the spring. In the mean
time the supreme court declared the
board of transportallon unconstitu
tional on account of the Irregular passage -
sago of the act creating It. This de
cision loft no body In power to en
force the order of the board and the
depot has never been opened. Mr.
Vlertol alleges that the station might
draw a great deal of business from the
Rosebud Indian reservation , because
It Is thlrleen miles nearer the reserva-
Uon lhan Is Valentino , the town that
now gets most of the reservation
