The rallwuy commission has handed
down a decision on tho hearing held
some two weeks ago wherein George V.
Hill, acting for the peoplo of dandy,
made complaint to the commission that
the Union Pacific Railway company had
built a lino of road a mile and a half
north of that town and had established
another town called Staploton three miles
from Gandy and had refused to erect and
maintain depot facilities at Gandy or
any place near the town.
Tl)ey set forth that Gandy had been
established as a town for twenty years
anffl was the county seat of tho county,
wltJh a court house and that the bulk of
the farming trade for the new town of
Stapleton would nave to pass through
Gandy to reach the new town and for
that reason tha road should maintain
facilities for taking on and off freight,
express and passengers at Gandy.
-The railway company set out that there
was no good location for a depot on tho
Mine of road nearer Gandy than tho now
I town and that since the road had been
built that the people of Gandy were mov-
fng tJieir residences and business places
Stapleton and that It. would bo un
reasonable to expect that the company
would erect and maintain two depots
within a mile and a half of each other.
Commissioner Wlnnett, In writing the
opinion, said that the commission would
uphold the complaint of the people of
Gandy and that the company must erect
a. email depot building In the most con
venient place nearest to Gandy and main
tain facilities necessary to tho people of
