Thinks He May Yet Solve Union
Depot Problem.

"Among the greater things that my administration of city affairs is rapidly solving is the Union depot and West trafficway problem," said Mayor Beardsley last night to a small audience at the meeting of the Technological Society in Central high school building. "The depot surroundings will be both beautiful and attractive, and the West trafficway will be settled satisfactory to the many interests involved."

The mayor then went down the list of public utilities and said that it was his aim and ambition to make them complete and effective and in keeping with every demand. He told about the city acquiring forty acres of lad in Platte county to establish a sanitarium for tuberculosis victims, the new emergency hospital in the city hall and the contemplated children's playgrounds and bath house in the North end.
