THE OPERATORS IN FABTICULAB.
Areata Supposed to de Doable Duty, When
a Operator C. H. DeerCa Beported
Parehaae for the C, B. A Q. Heard by
the Tie Walker.
While there is no noticeable do
orcase in the ircncral freicht and
passenger traffic of the C, M. & St.
P., the officials of that road are on
every division of the svstem dis
charging employes, esficcially sec
tion hands and operators, as far as
possible. An order which goes into
effect today, and which applies to all
towns where the amount of business
will allow, calls for the discharge of
night operators. This can only be
done where the local agent is an
operator, he being expected to do
the day man's duties in connec
tion with his own. The day opera
tor is then transferred to nirht
duty. This order will mcau the lay
ing oil of quite a number, although
not affecting the local force. All car
repairers are reduced from 10 to eight
hours per dav.
Coal Itnd Parcbane.
The Orion Times is authority for
the circulation of a rcDort that C.
U. Deere, while in Europe recently,
purchased for theC, B. & Q., a large
tract of coal land in section 1, Rural
township. Coal has been nscd on
thU land for several years, mostly
for country trade. Surveys have
been recently made by the "O.
looking to the building of a track in
this section, and from this it is in
ferred that the company had at the
time virtual possession of the land.
It is said the company will build a
track either into the city of Eock
Island or up the Rock River valley
to Bars tow; it will enter Cable.
where the company will get patron
age from several shafts; that a line
will be run from Cable to Lynn,
where a good vein of coal was found
last summer. Another rumor is
that the "Ci." will build from Gil
christ to Cable, from Cable to sec
tion 1, and from thence to Rock Isl
and. While this is feasible it is ex
tremely doubtful, as the cost would
be immense. But the report came
from good authority that section 1 is
to be opened in the near future bv
the road, and that lots have been
sold to 20 miners, ou which houses
wiil lie erected.
Division Sunt. II. D. Mack was
called upon by an Alices represents-.
live uus morning, ana asked as to
the reliability of the above facts. He
stated that while he hoped they were
true, noiumg oi sucn a nat ure had

pany, as far as he knew. The fact

Mr. Lowell, a railroad man, re-1
marked recently that the time is not
far distant when every locomotive'
will be equipped with an electric
headlight, but before this is done
the price must be lower and some
changes made in handling it. He
says it must be so constructed that
the electric headlight will swing on
a pivot and be controlled bv a rod
extending from the headlight back to
the cab, so that the engineer by lit
tle exertion can throw the light in
any desired direction; as his engine
rounds a curve he can turn the head
light to meet that curve, and as the
engine approaches a sidetrack he can
turn the headlight to strike the
switch, flooding it with light, and in
an instaut showing him if it is in its
correct position for the train to pass
sateiy. Mr. ioweli says there will
be a saving which will pay for an
electric headlight on every locomo
tive a road has, as there will be no
necessity for placing switch lights,
which are not only an expense in
having a man to look after them, but
their cost and that of the oil tbey
burn, is much greater than would
be supposed. Aside from this,
he thinks electric headlights are a
preventitivc of accidents from head
or rear end collision. Another point
he makes is that in case of an acci
dent, if the electric light can be han
dled as desired, it can be nsed as a
signal of a wreck or trouble of any
kind, as by flashing it upon the sky
its reflection can be seen by actual
experiment ten miles.

aba- "Mikado ToaiRht.
The charming opera, "Said Pasha."
was given its first presentation by
the Houck Opera company at Har
per's theatre last evening. The
opera has been heard in Kock Island
before, but on the whole, never bet
ter. The choruses, with the compa
ny's own orchestral accompaniment.
were ricn ana given with splendid
precision and volume. The costumes
were tasty and elegant throughout,
having the appearance of newness
and brightness. Individually, the
composition of the company is not
strong. Miss Mcrtic Houck is not a
glittering star in the operatic firma
ment. Her Hal all twioli was ideal in
ppearance, but we' will not do her
he unkindncss of further comment.
E. 1 Graves1 Said Pasha was typical
in all respects. Frank Ridsdole's
Hassen Bey was faultless, but Alonzo
Hatch's Terano was painful. In
stead of the brusk Mexican. Mr.
Hatch's interpretation was exceediog
ly effeminate. His voice had been
left in Moline and he was unable to
bring it this side of Brooks' crossine.
and the audience was given the im
pression of phonographic transmis
sion rather than the clear impetuous
lone that should attach to the role.
Dan Packard as Hadad and Li insep
arable Hockey in the person of John
Henderson, looked after the comedy
baracters and did them well.
C. W. Philips' Kniali was listless.
Miss Goldie Kinelurt as Alii, was the
ideal queen of Allara, indeed. She
is possessed of rare genius, a sweet
modulated voice, which is indeed a
feature of the company's entertain
ments. Marion Chester's Serena was
fair, and the others in the cast were
fully up to the average. Scott Law.
rence appeared in some wonderful
whistling solos. The company gave
a matinee this afternoon.
This evening Gilbert & Sullivan's
comic opera, The Mikado," is to lie
given by the same company and a
urong presentation or this musical
production may well be anticipated.
