HE DECEIDED TO WORK FOR AN OLD FREIND THE C&NW RAILROAD.

THE OMAHA ROAD IN THE TWIN CITIES, THE TWIN CITIES OF ST. PAUL AND MINNEAPOLIS WERE TWO OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TRMINALS ON THE OMAHA ROAD, AND THEY WERE PART OF THE OFFICIAL TITLE OF THE COMPANY FROM THE INCORPORATION OF THE CHICAHO, ST. PAUL & MINNEAPOLIS RAILWAY IN 1878.
