THE EXCELLENCE OF SYRUP CF riGS

to the care and fckill with which it is

II. S. Cable, vice president of the
Iiock Island & Peoria, tieiit-lal At

Island, and Attorney .f. K. I.ane and
Knitter C. F. Lowetb. of the Ter

warehouse and railway commission at
Sprin'-tield Moudav in relation to the
tirornjseil crossing bv the Terminal
company of tho Peoria's tracks on
First avenue at West Seventeenth
street. Mr. Cable holds that an inter-
lockirv' device with s't-uais should le
installed, but the Terminal folks hold
that it is not necessary, but if the
commission should decree that one
should be put in, they want the Peo
ria to stand half of the attendant ex
pense. To this Mr. fable objects.

official orgau of the Frternal Tri

to the effect that there were no live
