the Makesh ft Structure on the Rlrer
Front. Which Is Promised to be Bat
President H. B. Shuler, of the
Bridge and Terminal company, says
that the Terminal people expect to
build a $10,000 depot ou the river
front in Moline if the move for a union
depot which he indorses is not suc
cessful. Mr. Shuler gave this in
formation to Dr. J. W. Morgan. John
II. Mueller, W. A. Jones and W. A.
Dierolf. of the Business Men's asso
ciation, during a visit of the Moliners
to Mr. Schuler Wednesday afternoon
in the interest of the union depot
movement in Moline. Mr. Shuler
said he was in favor of the plan and
would help it along. The Dispatch,
speaking of the conierence with Pres
ident Siuler, says: '-The Moliners
inspected the new Terminal depot in
D-ivenport and were well pleased with
it. Tne structure cost $10,000."
It is not stated that the Moline com
mittee inspected the depot building
which the Terminal people recently
erected overlooking the new river
front in Rock Island. The excuse
for a building so referred to
was put up umler promise that
it should '"i satisfactory to the mayor
and council, and may be taken as an
evidence of what the company thinks
is becoming to a city which has done
for it what Rock Island has, although
it is explained that it is to be but tem
porary and will be removed in the
spring. Admitting this assurance to
be worthy of acceptance, which it is
not unless the city takes tbe matter
iu hand, it is a dUgraceful structure
even for a makeshift, and one the com
pany would not have had the audacity
to attempt to erect in either of
the other two cities. Itnck Island
does not begrudge her neighbors the
good fortune cither may uitain from
tbe Terminal company, but she is in
dignant over her own shabby treat
An Fye Sore at ll.st.
It is all very well ami very easy to
make representations as to structures
of a merely temporary nature, that
a few months will s-ee belter thing,
with the Terminal company running
trains into the Twentieth street depot,
which will solve all mysteries, and all
that. Rock Island has been liviog on
mysteries so long that, were she like
most cities, she would be wondering
if dreams come true, and would be
thoroughly imbued with the spirit of
the Missourian in all future transac
tions. But Rock Island is not pessi
mistic in temperament. The people
here confidently hope for great things
from the Terminal company, as they
iiive from the fiist. And they have
bargained lor them, to an extent, at
least, in tbe franchises that have been
Jsut all the rosy prospects do not
license the Terminal compiny to
come here and disfigure the city's
front yard not for a moment. The
depot recently erected on the river
front is an evesore and a disgrace,
and it will be so every moment it is
permitted to remain.

any shaped man c n be fitted; though some
