fore lie Succeeds In KxetiUlnr Bia
Frank P. Blair, the energetic pro
moter for the Terminal Railway com
pany, was stopped yesterday in what
baa the apperance ot an attempt to
lay tracks in tue new levee.
'Blair claimed that he was only do
ing what he had been granted permis
sion to do by the city council. Mayor
McConochie and the aldermen differ
with him. The Terminal embank
meiit skirts the liver to the west line
of West Seventeenth street. From
that point it is proposed to cross in a
southeasterly direction and connect
with the Burlington's main track.
which is to be shared jointly by the
Terminal and Burlington eastward, it
is understood, to a point in the vicin
ity ol Brook s' crossing. Air. iilairnas
aiways had designs on the Rock Island
levee and has been continually
complaining that be was receiv
ing the "short end of it" because he
was not allowed by ordinance to occu
py that valuable strip of river front
that the city bas set aside ior tbe ac
commodation of steamboat traffic.
Attempts Queer Methods.
baturday afternoon ties were
dumped on the levee and a gang
of men was put at work ar
ranging the tracks for the install'
inr of frogrs. Mayor McConochie
was notified and announced that he
would put a stop to anv such busi
ness, and that nothing further would
be done there until the council was
Bright and early yesterday niorn-
inr a force of 25 men arrived on the
scene and were pushing operations at
a lively rate when Acting Chief of Po
lice Miller, who had been instructed
to keep a watch on the premises, un
expectedly appeared, and ordered a
cessation or hostilities, ior the way
picks were being swung and hammers
pounding-and tracks being torn up
it looked as the railroads for a block
were doomed to destruction. Mayor
McConochie and several of the alder
men soon joined the chief, and it was
not long until Mr. Blair himself, who
had been apprised by telephone by
one of his men that operations had
ceased, arrived. He expressed him
self as surprised at the action of the
city officers, claiming that he did not
mean to take unfair advantage, and
bad decided to do the work Sun
day as an accommodation to the
1'eoria, as tne tracks 01 mat company
had to be temporarily removed in or
der to make the connection, and to
execute the job on a week day would
interfere considerably with the com
pany s operations.
Has No Such Permission.
Mayor McConochie informed Mr.
Blair that he did not believe he had
permission to go onto the levee, and
anvwav. be bad no business point
ahead "with work of that character
without at least conferring with the
street and alley committee, under
whose supervision all tracks author
ized in the ordinances are laid.
Mr. Blair came over to Rock Island
this afternoon to confer with Mayor
McConochie further in relation to
yesterday's episode. To an Argus
representative woo saw mm ne tie
clared that he had done nothing more
than the ordinance allowed in at
tempting to put in the switches yes
terday, insisting that bunday was the
only day that the frogs could be put
in tbe llock island oc reoria tracks.
The company was anxious to lay out
it's yards, be said, and tbat tbe oper
ation undertaken was apart of the gen
eral plan allowed by the ordinance.
One of the aldermen speaking of the
matter today stated that Mr. Blair
had pushed through tbe council such
a multiplicity of ordinances that it
would require a Philadelphia lawyer
to find what rights he did have and
what he did not. The alderman be
lieved that yesterday's caper was sim
ply a bold attempt to seize Che track
privileges on the new levee that Mr.
Blair has so long coveted, and that
was time for the council to give
him to understand that he has -no
mortgage on that property.
It's high time that the council was
having an understanding with tbe ter
minal people once and for all time.
