Depot Master Prophesies Big Crowds
at Union Station Next Week.

Crowds larger than have been handled for years are expected at the Union depot next Tuesday, when, in addition to the regular Carnival week excursions, which are at their height on the day of the Priests of Pallas parade, several homeseekers' excursions, bearing thousands of people, are also scheduled.

"I have been at this depot for fifteen years, and I have never failed to see it packed to its capacity on the day of the Priests of Pallas parade," said Lee Mitchell, the depot master, last night. "With the addition of the homeseekers' excursions, I believe the crowd will be the largest we have ever handled. It will be impossible to keep people off the platform, and I don't see now how they will even be able to get on and off their trains. However, we have always managed crowds before, and I suppose it will be done without any more friction than necessary this time."
