FINISH OF HAND CUR
New Time and Labor Saving De
vice Introduced on Rail
OPERATED EY GASOLINE ENGINE
One on Trial on the Rock Island &
Peoria--General News of
Ag evidence of the rising dignity r
labor and the increasing econo.nv
practiced in its employment may .e
offered the example of a time and
labor-savinj: device now in use on one
section of the Mercer county branch
of the liock Island & Peoria road.
It is a gasoline car used to trans
port the laborers over the section of
track from Milan to Taylor liidge.
While the one in question has been in
use over two months, it is a compara
tive! v newr thin or. In fact, it is the
second one of its kind known to be in
use. It was built by Fairbanks,
Morse & Co., of Chicago, beinz the
second of a pair put out by that tirm.
The lirst one was taken by the C, M.
& St. P. road.
On Same Oeneral Plan.
J he car itself 19 built on tae same
general plan of the ordinary hand car,
tut in place of the back-breaking
lever, a -'-horse power gasoline engine
is connected with the gearing and
there are seats running along each
side lengthwise with the car. On a
test this machine has carried 13 men
at a speed of teven miles an hour.
With the ordinary load of eight men
it will do something better. The
principal objection to the innovation
so far discovered is its weight, which
is about 1.000 pounds, ' or nearly
double that of the ordinary hand car.
This renders it rather "clumsy to
handle in putting it on and oil the
track. Another objection i3 that the
power developed by a 2-horse power
engine is not sufiicient. This, cf
course, is easily remedied.
The section upon which the test is
being made is in charge of Foreman
Tom Griflin, and is a particularly hard
one to keep in order. It is eight
miles in length and has three miles of
very steep grade up Turkey Hollow.
An Ariloonn CllnVb.
This furnishes an exceedingly ar
duous climb for a gang of men on the
ordinarv car, especially in the face of
a southern gale, aud a very practical
test for the car 111 question, lue ob
ject in using motor cars is, of course,
to effect a saving of time and energy
on the part of the men. Although
there is a very perceptible saving in
these respects, the device is still too
crude and too costly to warrant rail
road companies in doing entirely away
with the old order of thing3 just yet.
Further improvements, however, are
entirelv feasible and the day is un
doubtedly near at hand when the old
car that has put the crook in many a
section man s back .shall
forever from our midst.

Now that the newC, 15. & Q. Twen

tion, the expressions of satisfaction
that are everywhere expressed with
what the compiny has done so far, in
cluding the a-suranee of the clock in

ab.uit the little park promised on the
south side of the station and the
matter of ornamtntal train sheds on
the north side. As to the grass plat,
it is understood the company 's de
batipg about erecting an attractive
brick wall along Twentieth stree t in
place of the park, which would, er
haps, answer the purpose as well, but
at all events the handsome structure
that has just gone up should not be
marred by unsightly railroad yards
adjoining. As to the train sheds, no
modern depot is complete without
them. The mere port ecochere does
not answer the purpose. It is hoped
the new Uariingtcn will Iks up to date
in liock Island and provide the orna

liock Island is credited with be;::g
the birthplace of Charles M. Hays,
reneral manajrer of the Grand Trunk
railwaj.who has been called to the
presideucv of the Southern Pacific, to
succeed to tbe vac3ncv caused bv the
death of Collis P. Huntington. It is
probable hs is the son of one of two
liays families who moved away from
the city in the 50's.
A dispatch from New Ycrk to a
Chicago paper says:
Mr. Hays was born at Hock Island
in lob. At tne age of "26 he entered
the service of the Atlantic and Pacific
load as a clerk at 5t. Louis. He was
promoted to a clerkship in the oCice cf
the general superintendent, and
served in that capacity until tS77.
From that year until -18S1 he was
seeretarv to the general manager of
the Missouri Pacific, and left that post
for a similar one with the Wabash,
St. Louis and Pacific. In 1SS6 he was
promoted to be assistant general
manager of the roa-1. and in lfcs was
made general manager of the Wabash
In 1SS3 Mr. Ilavs was again ad
vanced, this time to the important
position of general manager of the
Wabash railroad, and five years later
he succeeded to the por-ition of vice
president and general manager, which
he left to go to Montreal.
" Not onv as a railroad official ff
great ability, but as a snave and dip
lomatic gentleman Mr. Hays is known
to his friends. Having risen from
the ranks himself, he is appreciative
to the last degree, and he is as just in
his dealings with bis subordinates as
he was conscientious when he was a
subordinate himself " -

Madison Square theatre. New York,
and was an all-summer triumph in
Chicago, will b presented ,at the
Burtis opera house Tuesday, Oct. :0.
This was the author-actors's lirst
work after his famous all-conquering
Secret Service"' and is a worthy suc
cessor. "Because She Loved Him
So" is an adaptation from the French
of Bisson and L3clcrc, but as in all
Mr. Gillette's work of this sort he
adds considerable of his own juaint
and witty originality. The new piece
is not all adaptation, but reveals other
provocations to laughter than are
to be found in the source, from
which the piece comes. Mr. Gillette
has been very successful in pleasing
the American public with his come
dies, the lirst of which, "The Profes
sor," "All the Comforts of Home"
and "Mr. Wilkinson's Widows" are
as fresh in the minds of theatre-goers
as the last. "Too Much Johnson,"
which, it will be remembered, was a
great triumph. "Because She Loved
Him So," written at the ripest part
of his career, eclipses them all.

feeling ill early in the evening and
was put to ted by the wife before she
left for Davenport. This is in ac
cordance with evidence brought out
at the inquest. A physician who was
called in testified that there were no
symptoms to indicate that death had
been due to poisoning or foul play of
any description. The wife told a
very straightforward story, declaring
that she and her husband hai been
living in comparative peace for some
time previous, and appeared to take
the matter greatly to heart. It was
shown that the deceased had been a
heavy drinker for years and that he
had indulged to excess daring the
two days previous to his death.

KINGMAN PLOW FACTORY.
One of the leading topics amor, the
traveling men who visit Rock l.l.i;
is the strike early the present week at
the plow factory of Kingusan & Co
in Peoria. It is pointed to as another
evidence of the kind of prosperity the
administration boasts. Tae" men in
the factory found that the wages they
were getting were not enough to pro
vide a "full diuner pail,1 .and they
struck. The trouble is the result of
a second reduction in wages within a
month. The men have organized and
have notihed all workmen 01 all sur
rounding: cities to keep away from
Peoria, hoping in this manner to force
the company to either entirely sus
pend operations or accede to their de
mands for a restoration or me 01a
ware scale. It is the general opinion
of the men that there is .politics be
hind the action of the company. One
younjr man asserts that the superin
tendent of his department approached
him and said: "lou will cast your
lirst vote this year. It is important
that vou should vote for the interest
of your employers and in order to in
sure holding your position l nope you
will vote for McKinley." The young
man replied he knew it was bis hrst

to be free, he should vote as he saw
