Small Towns fight Order to Abolish
Six South Dakota towns are en

cent order of the Chicago and Mil
waukee railroad closing the telegraph
offices at their respective stations.
Oldham, Vienna, Erwin, Garden
City, Elrod and Lily are the villages
affected and some of them have beta
doing a large and profitable business
to the road for yeara. Oldham and
Vienna particularly have a freight
business amounting to a number of
thousand dollars each month and are
among the most remunerative points
on their respective lines.
The order of the road has been re
ferred to the railroad commissioners,
who, under the law passed by the last
legislature, must first concur before a
railroad is allowed to close a telegraph
office. This is the first lime the new
law has been invoked and the action
of the board, which Is no'. investigat
ing the facts, is being watched with
interest, not only by the villages In
question but also by a number of
otherjilaofs which Mve .been threat
