Big Bend Towns Seek Mail Route

From the "Spokane Chronicle."

April 23, 1940

Delegations from Almira, Creston, Coulee City, Davenport, Hartline, and Govan met with the Wilbur Commercial club Monday evening to discuss possible mail service, should the Northern Pacific discontinue service on the Central Washington branch from Spokane to Coulee City.

Railroad officials have intimated an intention to discontinue passenger and mail service and operate freight trains only on the line.

A committee consisting of one representative from each town on the line will be appointed to further investigate the problem. Deputy Sheriff Frank C. Rambo and Jim Downie attended the meeting from Davenport.
