THE ISLAND STREET CARS.
Secretary of War Ihrucs a Permit to Ran
to Arsenal Shorn.
Street cars to and from the shops
at Hock Island arsenal arc to consti
tute a convenience of much earlier
date than was originally anticipated.
Saturday Secretary of" War Alger is
sued a revokablc permit to the Tri-
City Railway company to run cars on
the island (eyond the avenue over
which the franchise now extends, af
fording rapid transit, thus insuring
the running of cars for the accomoda
tion of employes from the three cities
between the shops and their homes.
tieneral Manager Lardner, of the
railway company, stated this morning
that tracks would be located up over
the island as soon as possible, this
procedure ol course being in the hands
of Mai. Biunt, and the rails would
then lie laid and the employes' trains
put on mornings and evenings.
It is quite probable that eventually
the men living in Hock Island and
Moline will through the instrumen
tality of the Tri-City Kiilway com
pany 'senterprise and influence receive
even a quicker or more direct mode
of transportation, to their place of
work than is now contemplated, this
o le accomplished by a crossing to
the island midway between the two
cities, which will be equally accessible
to the men living in both cities, and
for their sole beneiit.
