CR&INATOR TIN FOIL SMOKCR PACAASC
FINISH OF HAND CUB
New Time and Labor Saving De
vice Introduced on Rail
OPERATED ET GASOLINE ENGINE
One on Trial on the Rock Island &
Peoria--General News of
As evidence of the rising dignity
labor and the increasing economy
practiced in its employment may
offered the example of a time and
labor-saving device now in use on one
section of the Mercer county branch
of the Uock Island & Peoria road.
It is a gasoline car used to trans
port the laborers over the section of
track from Milan to Taylor Iiidge.
While the one in question has been in
use over two months, it is a compara
tively new thing. In fact, it is the
second one of its kind known to be in
use. It was built by Fairbanks,
Morse & Co., of Chicago, being the
second of a pair put out by that linn.
The first one was taken by the C, M.
& St. P. road.
Ou Same (ieneral Plan.
The car itself is built on the same
general plan of the ordinary hand car,
but in place of the back-breaking
lever, a L'-horse power gasoline engine
is connected with the gearing and
there are seals runr.ing along each
side lengthwise with the car. On a
tet this machine has carried 13 men
at a speed of seven nrHe.s 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 oft" the
track. Another objection is that the
power developed by a 2-horse power
engine is not sullicient. This, cf
course, is easily remedied.
The section upon which the test is
being made is in charge of Foreman
Tom Griftin, 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 Arclaons Cllnib.
This furnishes an exceedingly ar
duous clhnb for a gang of men on the
ordinary car, especially in the face of
a southern gale, and a very practical
teat for the car in question. The ob
ject in using motor cars is, of course,
to effect a saving of tune and er.ergy
on the part of the men. Although
there is a very perceptible aing 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 things just yet.
Further improvements, however, are
entirely feasible anil the nay is un
doubtedly near at hand when the old
car that has put the crook m many a
section man's b.ick shall be banished
forever from our midst.
TIC A I X SIIi:i)S Wfll'I.U COMPLETE IT.
An Improvement tbe C,T5. & O.Shnnlil Not
Omit In Cotiiplatlng Its New Drpot.
Now that the newC, 15. & (J. Twen
tieth street station is neJring comple
tion, the expressions of satisfaction
that are everywhere expressed with
what the compmy has done so far, in
cluding the a-surarce of the clock in
the tower, am attended by itujuiries
ab.mt the little park promised on the
south side of the station and the
matter of ornamental train sheds on
the north side. As to the grass plat,
it is understood the company is de
bating about erecting an attractive
brick wall along Twentieth street in
place cf the park, which would, per
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 vards
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 Barlinglcn will le up to date
in Rock Island and provide the orna
mental sheds for the comfort of itn
patrons and the beauty of its general
HATS SrCCEEDS IirXTINGTOX.
Former Rack Inlatutler Called to I'resldun
cy of Southern l'aclttc.
Rock Island is credited with Lei::g
the birthplace of Charles M. Ilu-i.
general manager of the Grand Tru jk
railwaj.who has been called to the
presidency of the Southern Pacific, to
succeed to tbe vacancv caused bv the
death of Collis P. Huntington. It is
probable hs is the son of one of two
Hays families who moved away from
the city in the iO's.
A dispatch from New Ycrk to a
Chicago paper says:
"Mr. Hays was born at Unc& Island
u 185S. At the age of 23 he entered
the service of the Atlantic and Pacific
load as a clerk at -t. Lduis. He was
promoted to a cleikship in the oCice cf
the general superintendent, and
Fervcd in that capacity until tS77.
From that year until -IjSI he was
secretary to the general manager of
the Missouri Pacific, and left that post
for a similar one with the Wabash,
it. Louis and Pacihc. In lSfc6 he was
promoted to be assistant general
manager cf the road, and in lfc3 was
made general manager oi the Wabash
In 1SS3 Mr. Ilavs was again a 1-
vaneed. this time to the important
position of general manager of the
Wabash railroad, and five years later
he succeeded to the position ct vice
president and general manager, which
he left to go to Montreal.
Not onlv as a railroad official f
great ability, but a3 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 his subordinates as
he was conscientious when he was a
subordinate himself " '

William Gillette's latest and great
est comedy, which ran a season at the
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 first
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 Bison and L2clereq. but as in all
Mr. Gillette's work of this sort he
adds considerable o! his own quaint
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
his been very successful in pleasing
the American public with his come
dies, the first 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.

violence upon his person and the body
did not appear to have undergone

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 wtre no
symptoms to indicate tht death had
been due to poisoning or fonl 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.

sonable clue to the cause of his death

KINGMAN PLOW FACTORY.
One of the leading topics amor, ; the
traveling men who visit Rock 1 -,-aiid
is the strike early the present week at
the plow factory of Kingman 4c Co
in Peoria. It is pointed to as another
evidence of the kind of prosperity the
administration boasts. J.ue men in
the factory found that the wages they
were getting were not enough to pro
vide a "full dinner pail,". and they
struck. The trouble is the result of
a second reduction in wages wuuin a
month. The men have organized and
have notified all workmen of 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 of the old
ware scale. It is the general opinion
of the men that there is .politics be
hind the action of the company. Une
young man asserts mat tne superin

him and said: "iou will cast your
first vote this year. It is important
that vou should vote for the interest
of your employers and in order to in

that it had been due to apoplexy re

excessive use of intoxicating liquor.
Not long after the funeral had taken
place people livirg in the neighbor
hood became aware that irregularities
were being practiced at tbe widow's
abode. Things grew rapidly worse
until relatives of the husband inter
ceded in behalf of the three small
bovs that had been left in their moth

neglected. Finally the mother was
requested to turn them over to the

mission herself and leaving them
