LINCOLN. Dec. ll.-(Speclal Telegram.)
-Several weeks ago a complulnt was
filed with tho railway commission by a
largo number of residents of Gerlng.
county seat of Pcott's Hluff county, that
the Union Pacific railway, which ter
minates at that town, had placed its
depot so far away from tho business
center that It worked a detriment to the
town. The complaint was not made public
until today.
Some of tho panics making the com
plaint go so far as to say that- the rail
way company Is trying to kill off the
town, or at least tho older portion of It,
whllo the company insists that tho depot
Is placed where the people will best bo
served. a9 tho town lies In a pocket In
tho hills and the road could not havo
gono closer, and. In fact, on account of
expense of grading a great deal would
havo been saved by leaving the town
half a mile farther away. One largo
petition declares that 93 per cent of tho
ptoplo will have to roach the depot by a
detourcd route, which will take them
half a mile out of the way. and asks
Ihe commission to compel' the company
to movo the depot so that It will be con
venient for the public.
