THE HAYS FREE PHESS, "THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 1221.
Tke Interstate Commerce Commission Among the first nominations sent to the U. S. Senate by the new Pres- - 1 . 1 1. -!- T 1 T .' TT V - -T Wisconsin, and Mark W. Potter, of New York, as members of the Inter state Commission for a term of five ""years. Both were promptly confirm ed and begin their term April 1st. Mr. Potter - is a noted lawyer of New York, jioted f or.his work on this line, now seventy years of age, was appointed some time ago by Pres ident Wilson and now reappointed. Mr. Esch is the late Congressman from Wisconsin, and with Senator Cummings of Iowa, is author of the noted Interstate Commerce Commis sion law which has to do with all rail road and shipping and other com mercial work in" the United States. There are eleven of them appointed by the President for five years at $12,000 a year. This is the Comm ission that has in hand the matters of granting the per mission to build to the Golden Belt Railroad of this section; have had it under their "control since December 28th last. They wrote Congressman White and Senator Curtis they would give the application very careful con sideration. It has now gone through the Business Department and the At torney writes this week that it is now in the Finance Department to exam ine the statement what it will cost to build and equip the proposed road and how it is proposed to pay for it. The promotoJs are feeling jubilant, the financial part being their least fear. It was opposition to its build ing at all that worried them the past month. There mu3t surely be some thing in the whole matter that is as suring, for such a Court to give the matter their careful consideration. If, like some Hays people think, it would have been rejected 1 the first week 'after being filed, it wouldn't have reached first base, let alone getting to 'third this week. If the promotors have their say, and the Driectors will approve, the Golden Belt proposed new road will use iron fence posts along the route, the same kind now being used by the Government in their parks and the boundary line between Mexico and the United States. They may cost more to start, but fires aldng the road don't burn them out, and they are driven in instead of digging and fill ing, making a more solid fence. Mr. Cochran and others around Hays and in Barton county are using them ex tensively. They are guaranteed to last 25 years. The fence man of the company was here last Saturday and since sending in their prices in the first questionnaire to the Interstate, the price of iron has fallen and there will now be for the 64 miles, a sav- i-nrr it nrror ton fVimiQflnd rlnllars. Xhe price of their ties and bridge lunber has also taken a big tumble in prices quoted to the Interstate. While on the other hand the price of town lots and terminals have taken a rise with the prospects of improvements to come. - . Great Benders Here Hays has had its first joint meeting with Great Bend that may mean much in the future; not only among the older folks but the children and young men and women of both cities. The State Athletic parties put Great Bend High School among the contest ants this year at Hays, and the young men came over last week and at the tournament won lots of friends for their gentlemanly playing and took home the loving cup as their trophy. This season in their games in their own section they have won the cham pionship of the Western Athletic League and hold three cups one pre sented by Gov. Allen, and now take home the Golden Belt Cup for north western Kansas. They have to defend it for three years to own it, so will come back next year. In an interview with one of their party at the office of the Golden Belt Railroad on! East Normal Avenue, last week, they were congratulated by Superintendent Freese, shown the maps and papers of the proposed new Hays and into Nebraska, and went home rejoicing. The first through trains between Great Bend and Hays will be an ex cursion train of not less than fifteen cars. One day the business men and i;eorle cf Great 3e-?d, Barton s-nd Rush counties would be brought to Hays to get acquainted and see their State Institutions, as they are feli.wv rtats taxpayers and are helping to vy cur appiopriations. The next day te tzain would bring every child from six to twenty-one years of age in that neighborhood, to Hays to see their future State Normal School and ls Coliseum, that extends the glad hund to all of Western Kansas. The roxt day the Hays and Ellis county eh Hrors of school age would be taken Ic Gieat Bend and they will show then their city and schools and the following day the men and wjmen of Ellis and Kush coun ties wll be given a free ex cursion to Great Bend to see tNit piotiy city wherethey are prom ised a hearty reception. ... The pro-r-otois promised Mr. Freese, if he helped put this road over he should have the free use of the engines and cars of the company for these excur sions before the road is thrown open to general travel. The trains will leave at 7, arrive at the city at 10, and return at 4 o'clock sharp, giving . five or six hours of sight-seeing under .. charge of Dad3y Freese, who has be- past world, fairs. This will be news to the children of both cities and make them enthusiasts for the building of the road. Buckeye and Catharine will be brought in early enough to join in the celebra tion. This wa3 arranged some time ago but has been kept secret until the ; Interstate had shown its attitude and the presence of the Great Benders in Hays has brought it out. The fifteen flat cars of the Company will be seat ed, wired in, and decorated. They will carry over a thousand. The Hays band will be paid to accompany the j crowd from Hays both days.
