THIRTY-FIRST YEAR. NUMBER IS BONNERS FERRY. IDAHO. THURSDAY, NOVEMBERS, 1921 OFFICIAL PAPER OF BOUNDARY COUNTY ALL AGIN" THE G. N. RAILWAY COMMERCIAL REGRET THE ATT1TUTE OF RAILROAD OFFICIALS CUB MEMBERS SAY IMPROVEMENTS' OPPOSED Town and County Officials Voice I'ro teists Tuesday Night. Judging from the many expressions heard from business men and citi zens Tuesday night at the meeting of the Kootenai Valley Commercial Club, there is not an overly kindly feeling toward the Great Northern Railway company in this community. The feeling that the Great Northern Railway ofifcials pass up, slight and ignore Bonners Ferry and Boundary county, has been growing for soma time and found expression Tuesday night in a resolution adopted in which it was resolved that the commercial club express its disapproval of the at titude of the Great Northern Railway company towards the community. A committee composed of O. C. Wilson, C. W. King and W, T. James was ap pointed to prepare the resolution and forward a copy to Great Northern officials. Discussion was opened by O. C. Wil son who reviewed several instances where the Great Northern Railway had been asked to make Improvements, had promised to do certain things and had' thus far failed In promises and had, apparently, gone to extremes in hin dering matters pertaining to the gen eral welfare of the district. The speaker cited that the Great Northern officials had promised to fill in a gulch on Cottage avenue and to fix up two street crossings, which are believed to be dangerous, but as yet, nothing had been done. He said further: "Considering the amount of revenue which the Great Northern Railway Company secures from this town and surrounding district, it is surely un der obligations to fix up its crossings 1 and to keep its right-of-ways through town in such a condition that they | will not become a public nuisance and i a menace to the public health. The town could proceed in court to force ' certain improvements asked of the 1 Great Northern but it cannot spare the | money which might be required for; litigation. Every time we have started : anything in the past towards securing j these improvements, some one comes I along with soft-soap promises and tells us not to bother the Great North- I ern because it Is going to make Bon-' nors Perry a division point some day." j The speaker went on to relate how ; the work on the state highway hea been held up for many months be- j cause the Great Northern Railway of -1 ficials had refused permission to con- j struct a bridge over the Great North- i ern right-of-way at Naples and County I Commissioner Welch stated that the | Great Northern had not yet permit- j ted the county to straighten out the ! county road at Deep creek and Mo- ! ravia where the road passes under I the tracks. Both these improvenfbnis I would be beneficial, the speaker ! thought, to the railway company and would make the road safe for travel. George R. Causton told how ihe Great Northern had promised Bonners Ferry a new depot many years ago and . that today the company has not pro vided a decent waiting room even. F. A. Shu if is told of the efforts of the city co.uncil to secure the coopéra tion of the Great Northern in street improvements and said that he thought dtn"eM"t'aMte. ° Ca ' P " PlS " trï Charte. £S,1 ,ata tto, l„ s,„d. point several years ago the business men found themselves unable to se cure cooperation from the Northern Pacific Railway and so by mutual agreement they turned their business to a competing line and it was not long before the Northern Pacific across with improvements which had been urged. Other business men spoke on the subject and all expressed the opinion that some drastic action should be taken at once. A motion was made and seconded to the effect that the of picric acid to be shipped from eastern point to Bonners Ferry for distribution in this county, be routed over some other railway than the Great Northern but the motion not put when County Agent Alexander stated that he had already promised the routing of the car. came car an wa Want Free Express Service An effort will be made to secure free express delivery service in Bon ners Ferry and at a meeting of the Kootenai Valley Commercial Club held Tuesday night, a committee composed of J. W. Reid, L. N. Brown, George Causton and C. D. Simonds, pointed to petition the W'as ap express com panies serving Bonners Ferry for the free delivery. J. W. Reid first brought up the mat ter, stating that other towns were re ceiving this service and that it could be had for Bonners Ferry, in all prob ability, if requested through the >r officials. prop John Meyers Burled Tuesday John Bernard Meyers died Saturday at the Bonners Perry hospital, death resulting from injuries he received some five weeks ago at White's log ring camp. Burial was had Tuesday morning in the Grandview cemetery The deceased was about 55 years old and was a native of Wisconsin. A brother, Geo.
