Official announcement of the change was made by Division Freight Agent Wight, Friday, con- firming earlier rumors. The Fos- tona office will be opened July 1. The Business Men's Association will make an effort to have the offices re- tained here and has already taken up the matter with officials The only reason assigned by the raihoad management for the change is that Fostoria is more conveniently located On the main line of the Chi- cago division. It is now frequently necessary for men connected wifn the office to use other roads to get to various points on the big division. The change is a hlam-to Sanfusky as it will take from the city a num- ber of families. Mr. and Mrs. Wight will make their home in Fostoria and with them will go Chief Clerk J. Lemgang; Traveling Freight Agents J W Malone and R. M. McKee: Rate Clerk Lewis 43. Seitz; Telegrapher P. B.

He Friday that he felt all broken over the prospect of leaving. He has been in Sandusky ever since the divi- sion freight office was established "lh> 1S96. During that time he and Jkttg, Wight have resided continuously ,at the Sloane -House. The office rooms in the Kingsbury block have also been occupied continuously. One of his earliest accomplishments here. was the reopening of the big grata elevator which had long been and he also brought about yard terminal facilities improvements. Mr. Wight said Fridayi that he ai- ticipated no further change Jn the B. 0. business here. The laks coal shipments are not within his de- partment but it is evident that com- paratively little in this line will be done here this season.
