Madison , . Neb' . , May 7. Special to
The News : As announced In The News
yesterday , Commissioner W. H. Cow-
Ill , of the Nebraska railway commis
sion , visited Madison and was enter-
ained by the members of the Madison
Commercial club. In addition to a
horough Investigation of the depot
facilities , the entertainment commit-
ee , In company with the commission
er , toured the city and surrounding
country In automobiles , so that the
commissioner has a clear idea of the
iceds of the community depending
upon the railroad.
Badly as a now passenger station is
needed , a freight depot with better fa
cilities for loading and unloading ) s
even more urgently wanted . Addi
tional help will also tend to relieve
the congestion at this point. Under
present conditions , merchandise Is un-
oaded In front of the passenger sta
tion , where the space Is all too small
'or such purposes and where the op
erations of the trainmen and piles of
jarrels and boxes are a source of con
stant annoyance to passengers , and at
times somewhat dangerous.
Fey many years there has been im
portant freight traffic here. While this
'raffle ' has been increasing In Import
ance and value , the same old methods
of caring for It are still In use. The
commissioner met the comittee cor-
liaily and took a keen interest In these
matters and seemed to get at all the
'acts bearing upon the situation. Mad
ison people ore greatly impressed with
Commissioner Cowglll , and believe that
tie will exercise his good offices In
heir behalf.

Windy Blaze In Railroad Yard ,
About 1 o'clock Friday afternoon .1
fire , the origin of which Is not known
but presumably started by sparks from
an engine , broke out in the bridge
supply yards of the Northwestern rail
way company at the south end of
Fourth street.
Obtalnlng a good start and fanned
by a strong southwestern wind , the
flre had already made much headway
by the time the flre department ar
rived , and In spite of the valiant ef
forts of firemen and railroad em
ployes , who wore much handicapped
by poor water facilities , It seemed for
a time that the valuable tiers of 40x44
piling nnd other lumber In the yards
would be destroyed.
The strong wind blow sparks from
the burning tiers of piling fifty and
sixty feet away , and It kept a number
of meji busy extinguishing these
smaller blazes.
An attempt was made to pull an en
tire tier of piling out of the way of
those already on flre by attaching one
end of the long three-Inch rope to an
englno and tlelng the other part
around the timbers , but the enormous
weight proved too much , for the rope ,
and when the started It
snapped like so much twine
After nn hour's hard work , however ,
the firemen had the fire well la hand
A largo crowd witnessed the con
flagration. While no approximate es
timate of the damage Is yet known , It
Is thought It will bo around ? 6,000.
