Twenty thousand square feet 6( Hoof spaco, suitably arranged. Is needed ana while that amount 01 space could easily be found In the various office buildings, the officials of the road are anxious to have all of the departments under one roof and-as near tcsether as possible. The^strternent was made on Wednes- «ay toat Einj u^Dired amount or space could be secured In the Carter building, but owing to the fact that space on avery floor is steady occupied by tenants it would be nectisiary tu scatter the railroad employes and offices all over the building. The officials hope to be able to secure several whole floors In the bijlldlntr. but If this arrangement io made »oma of the tenants now In the building wlll.be obliged to take other quarters. In addition to private offices for the officials of the road, several large rooms or halls are) needed/for the various departments, which ore under the supervision of chief clerks. The revising department, the freight claim department, and the passenger department are usually Ipoated In extra large rooms for convenience. It is nald that at least 200 employes of tho International Great Northern will move to Houston when the general offices of the road are moved here. With their families the move will probably Increase the population of the city by 1,000. S«b]tei to duuuc* Wltieuf Xutlor.j as. NUECES .............. SsL. Aug. !8 S. S.BRAZOS .............. Wed. Aug.
