Vineyard Citizens Protest Closing . W.
Vineyard, Feb. 28.—The busi-
ness men of this community met
with the Rock Island officials and
• the Railroad Commission of Tex-
as, Friday, Feb. 24, at Bridgeport
and opposed the Rock Island’s
application to close Vineyard
Mr. C. F. Petet, secretary of
the Railroad Commission of Tex-
as, heard the arguments of both
the railroad officials and the bus-
iness men of this territory and
will bring the matter before th
Railroad Commission of Texas, at
Austin, before issuing a decision.
„ The business men of Vineyard
feel sure that the decision will be
in their favor as they feel sure
that they were able to show'that
there should be a greater volume

resentative stated that while
the Railroad was somewhat
justified in endeavoring to
close the station at this time be-
cause of business being at its low-
est ebb the past few months;
however, we are sure that their
officials will co-operate with us
to the fullest extent in affording
the territory agency service in the
event we prove to them that there
is enough business to warrant the
continuation of the service that
has been afforded since the build-
ing of the road through this
Just now the railroads need
the patronage of the people, but
we also need their service and
should reciprocate with them at
every opportunity. It is univer-
sally agreed that to put the rail-
roads on their feet will be the
solving of the depression and it is
trusted that through the co-ope-
ration of the people and the rail-
roads with the help of our legis-
lators, that this feat will be ac-
complished in the near futui'fc.

munity received from Hon. Quinn
