the street oar company. It waa proposed i
that the new line make a direct connection
with the depots. If this were done, then
those who were trading in Omaha would
transfer on Twenty-fourth street in the
business section. This improvement, the
club agreed, would make a convenient con

depots, and would often aave fifteen min
