Seventy-five or more citizens gathered at tho court houso last ovoning, dis cussed the depot proposition, and after debating tho subject for an hour and a half, left tlo matter just where they iounu it at the start tho meeting was barren of results. President Mohlor hnd said that he had recommended nn appropriation of $336,000 for a new round house, coal shutes and other ter minal improments for North Piatto; he had also included in his budget $85,000 for n now depot; ho did not think the directors would allow both: while the company wanted the terminal improvements ahead of tho depot, the citizens were insisting on a depot; ho put up to the pooplo the question which did they want first, tho round house and other improvements or tho depot. To discuss the proposition the meeting had been called. Remarks were made by Messrs. Seeborger, Patterson, Keefe, Neville, Hoagland, Fathor McDaid, Dr. Quigley, Bare, Martini and osiers. Some iavored a straightout domand for a new depot, others favored the tormi na! improvements, while others thought best to keep hands off nnd not attempt to interfere with tho plans of tho com pany. The lotterview finally prevailed, and President Seebergor of tho Cham ber of Commerce was authorized to communicate with President Mohler that tho North Piatto peoplo wanted both tho depot and the terminal im provementsand God speed the day when we could have both.
