S4 Lnd Office Business. G. N. TO REMOVE SHOPS FROM LARIMORE The city council met Saturday night and a very warm session was the result. A Mr. Clay, rep­ resenting the Great N orthern rail­ road company was present, and the proposition of building the Great Northern viaduct was brot up. Mayor Roach is Notified That This Will be the Case—Company's Representative Meets City Council Saturday Night. The company wishes to build a viaduct fourteen feet high or higher, from their right-of-way on the north to Ward street which would throw the south approach not far from the Jacobson ele­ vator. Most of the members of the council did not favor this plan, as it would throw the traffic too far from main street. The council is in favor of the via­ ducts being built to lleishus street, a block west of main street, which would throw the viaduct diagonally northwest and southeast to Ward street on the north. This would cause the company to go to a great deal more expense, as in that case, the viadu...
