FOREWORD TO THE PUBLIC It is the policy of the Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Railway Company to comply with all reasonable and just demands of the committees it serves. For some years past there has been a growing demand in all cities of the country for information regarding the business operations of public service corporations To meet this de mand and in a friendly spirit give to this community such information as it is is entitled to know regarding the affairs of the Street Uailway Company, it has been decided ' by ' the Board of Directors of this company to publish weekly articles in tho Sunday editions of our daily papers, which will give an outline of tho history, the development, the operation and the financial condition of our company. "We do this with the belief that the public has a right to know all the material facts regarding the operation of its public service corporations, and that with a knowledge of these facts and witii more intimate information regarding the plans and policies of the Street Railway Company, that our citizens will better understand and act with greater wisdom on such ques tions as from time to time are presented to them concerning this corporation. Frequently garbled and incorrect statements have been made for political and other purposes, and laws and ordinances have been proposed, which, if enacted, would greatly retard if not entirely destroy the development of the street railway system in this community. Believing as we do that the 6treet railway system of any city furnishes the most important arteries of trade, and that the growth of theso arteries must keep pace with the growth of the city, we do not hesitate to break the long established rule of public service corporations, by tak ing the people into our confidence and telling them our history, our mistakes, our losses and our gains. Beginning on Sunday, January 24th, there will be published a series of weekly articles which, when com pleted, will furnish much valuable information regarding the affairs of this company from its organization to the present date. vIn these articles we shall endeavor to give such information to the public as will correct misunderstandings and misstatements regarding our affairs, and which will acquaint the community with our future plans and policies. The first article, on January 24th, will treat of the organization and early history of the 6treet railroads of Omaha. G. WATTLES, President. -Omaha & Council Oluffs Street Railway Company.
