MAY'USE SAME TRACK
Rumcr Now That the D., R. I.
& N. W. Will Use C. M. &. St.
P. Line to Fulton.
AH ALLIANCE HAS BEES POSHED
Shifting in Upper Circles of the
Rock Island Road Small
The latest rumor in local railroad
eircles is to the effect that the D. R.
I. & N. W. will not only use the
tracks of the C, M. & St. P. from
Port Byron Junction to this city, as
heretofore referred to in these col
umns, but will use the line all the
way to Fulton, which might in other
words eventually mean the C., & N.
W. coming down on this bide as well
as theowa side.
Early in the present year, it will be
remembered, the St. Paul road was
anxious to sell the local branch. Dur
ing the summer, however, extensive
improvements have been made, in
volving the expenditure of a large
amount of money. Steel bridges
with concrete abutments have been
put in and now new and heavier rails
are being laid above i-.st Moline.
In view of this it is hardly reasona-
ble to suppose that the sale of the
line is still contemplated. Ihe tne
orv that a southwest connection is
contemplated has been previously re
ferred to. but in view of tne manner
in which the D., R. I. & N. W. and
the C, M. & St. P. have been work
ing together of late, it seems alto
gether likely that some sort of alliance
between the two roads has been

AN EXPENDITURE 01 $150,000
Preparations Under Way for the
Installation of the New
Small Arms Plant.
The year 1900 has been a particn
larly busy one at Rock Island arsenal,
the principal constrnctive work un
der Maj. S. E. Blunt's direction being
in connection with tha preparation
for the installation of the new small
arms plant recently provided for by
A new boiler house for the central
steam heating plant for the arm orv
row has been constructed in the court
yard of shop "F," at a cost of $4 000.
This building also includes the neces
sary lavatory, and clothes and closet
provision for the workmen in this
shop A new elevated coal bin, with
the approaching railroad tracks and
necessary side tracks and switches,
has been built at a cost of f 18.000. A
new brick power house has been con
structed on the dam to replace the
one destroyed by tire about IS months
ago. It is much longer than the old
house and affords accommodation for
the additional wheels needed for the
power for the email arms plant. Its
cost has been $10,000.
Vst Improvement In Power.
The eigit old water wheels formsr
ly in the dam, which were of only
moderate capacity, developing not to
exceed :00 horse power in all, have
been replaced by 14 new turbines of
125 horse power each In connection
with this the old wire rope method of
transmitting power from the dam to
the shops hs been removed and gen
erators installed directly upon the
main shaft upon the dam, and p wei
transmitted by underground wires to
motors on the different shaft
throughout the shops. The contract
for the electrical portion of this work
was made with th General Electric
company at the price of 67 000.
Work In the shops.
A large amount of work has beeD
pt-rforuied in the shops of tho armory
row preparing them tor the reception

of tbe arms from one shop to another
duriog process of manufacture, lb
total cost of these preparations in th
ihops exceeds $50 000.
In addition to the above, and a fea
ture which the public thoroughly ap
preciates, the arsenal drives have b-en
improved at a cost estimated at $5.-
l'laos for Small Arms Plant.
