To the General Public We Sell Iowa's Best Coal and Hatfield'Dana Following is a summary of our experience in trying 1 to get ,a site on the f allowing railroad land. This letter explains why our company has had difficulty in securing a site. "A year ago last May the writer wanted a location on the C. M. St. Paul & Pacific R. R. just at the end of North Thorington Street, known as the Thorington Street Spur, and we made an application. Mr. W. P. Ingraham, Superintendent of the Iowa and Dakota Division, stopped at the depot, and got Mr. Chas. Joynt and the writer, and we went down together to the switch. They located me and told me where the scales, office and shed should be erected and then Mr. Ingraham asked If I wanted them to make a special trip to measure up for blue prints and I said no, that when the engineer was going through he could stop off and make the blue prints, but that I must have it before July 1st following. July 1st came and nothing was done, so Mr. Joynt wrote them three times and nothing came. Finally they called Mr. Joynt on the 16th of August and told him to advise Mr. Taylor that they had leased the ground to toe Botsford Lumber Company. So I went direct to the M. & St. L. and made written application for a lease on that line. The third day afterwards, Mr. Salter, travelling freight solicitor, came to Algona, Iowa, and advised us that he would have the lease for us in 48 hours. After over four weeks he returned and said he was so disappointed inasmuch as a representative of the Botsford Lumber Company of Winona, Minnesota, the head office, had called on their Mr. Lucas and that all three of the other dealers had made such a protest that they could not let me have It at all. We at once filed through the Railroad Commissioners at Des Molries, and when they had taken it up with the above railroad, they claimed that we had not made an application. The writer sent a copy of the application to Judge Henderson of Des Moines and then they came across and claimed it had been misplaced and again advised that things would be adjusted in a very short time. Time flew by, but finally Mr. Salter came and advised that the land was leased for a full two blocks, which was not used for anything and which Included the portion we had made application for, and they would not cancel the Anderson lease, but if we would go and see the Anderson Grain & Coal Company and if they would release, we could have the portion lying south of our ground which we owned. The writer, wanting to be a good citizen, went and asked Mr. P. R. Irons of the Anderson Grain & Coal Co., and he flatly refused to release, and now it is up to the Railroad Commission to decide whether or not they can hold this lease when it is not in use by them or anybody else. "We wanted to do the right things, and I believe any fair-minded man will so decided. I regret the stand I was compelled to take, but I stand or fall on the merits of my position. "We are in the business for a living profit, and if anybody starts to snowbird, this boy will never lift a hand to stop anybody from making an honest living. We are Very truly yours, E.N.Taylor, Inc.
