The general superintendent of the

cently issued an order to change the
name of the station of this city from
'•South Enid" to Enid. The order went
into effect last Sunday at 12 o'clock
The Wave has been fighting f«-r
this change ever since the depot was
established herf and we never have
been able to understand why the com-
pany insisted in misnaming the sta-
tion. The city was incorporated as
Enid by proclamation of Gov. Renfrow
during the fall of 189H. It was named
Enid by the Intorior department at
Washington; the land office was
named the Enid land office; the post-
office wa9 named Enid, but the rail-
road company called it "South Enid,"
which caused the people as well as
the railroad employes oceans of
trouble. Freight belonging to this
town was dumped off at North Enid
as well as baggage, express and tele-
The north town was incorporated |
as North Enid and the postoffice was
named North Enid, but the railroad
company insisted upon calling that
station Enid, but hereafter it will be
known as North Enid which will stop
all the late confusion.
Now; Enid's fight with the railroad
company is really over and everybody
concerned should really be glad of it.
However, it will bg a long time before
the people of Hennessey, Kingfisher
and 1.1 Reno will learn to call this |
city Eniu; they will probably continue I
11 address their letters 'South Enid" |
and there is no such postoffice.
In behalf of the people of Enid the
Wave heartily thanks the railroad
company for making the change.
The same change was made for our
Pond Creek friends; theirstation has
been changed from Riund Piiund to
