Iff City treasurer. NEW CITY OFFICERS. INVITATIONS ACCEPTED. RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, TUESDAY, JUNE 7, 1904. RESTAURANTS GREfSOBE FIND mm FARMER ENLARGING PREPARING FOR THE RUSH OF ST. LOUIS TRAVEL THAT WILL COME SOON. v LOCAL RESTAURANT Will Construct an Addition on the West Side Facilities to Be Increased. The restaurants along the line of the Pennsylvania-Vandalia railroad, probably the shortest and quickest way to the fair, are getting things ready preparatory to an enlargement of their facilities, the enlargement due to the lack of accomodations for the feeding of the large numbers of people who jump off the St. Louis bound trains, shout "Sandwich cup o' coffee," bolt their food and are back again on the train in five min utes. Mr. Dwyer, manager of the restaurant at the Richmond station, will soon receive the plans for an ad dition, to be built on the west wall of j the depot, which addition will be of the same size as the present restaur ant, but only temporary. Doors and passageways will be made between the two rooms and the restaurant will be in condition to do the large busi ness expected. Extra waiters will be secured, the cooking apparatus in creased and enlarged and several min or improvements, all tending to the increase of accomodations, will be made.
