TO PROMOTE MUTUAL IUTEsESTS
Committees to Act With Club and
The Rock Island Retail Merchants1
Association last evening held one of
the best and most important meetings
in the history of the organization in
the quarters in the Mitchell & Lynde
Questions of vital interest to the
city were taken up and discns3ed in
an altogether businesslike manner,
nearly evjry member present in the
assemblage, which was representative
of the best and foremost element in
the city, having something of im
portance to say. Best of all, action
was taken, live men being given defi
nite work to do, and unless all indi
cations fail, results will follow.
As previously announced, the main
r.ubject taken up was the city's rela
tion with the railroads. The matter
was brought up in an address by K
J. Barns, in which he spoke as fol
lows: "I desire to call your attention to a
f aw matters of great importance not
only- to our association but to the
people of the city of Rock Island as
well. K listing conditions brought
about by recent changes made by the
various railway lines entering our
city forces the conviction upon me
that the changes already made and
more of a similar nature to come,
will be a great hindrance to the future
growth and prosperity of our city.
With the spirit of progress pervading
our city at the present time it is my
candid opinion that no time should
be lost on the part of our association
in taking time by the forelock and
checkmating, if possible, any move
ment tending to retard our progress
brought about by the railway lires
entering our city and enjoying rights
and privileges within our corporate
limits. I want to call your special
attention to some of the changes
already made which greatly affect our
Btskea City a, Way Station.
"The Chicago, Milwaukee & St Paul
Railway company originally entering
this city making this their terminal
points, commonly known ns the Fa
cine & Southwestern division, now
run their trains down the Iowa side
to Davenport; thence cross the new
bridge to Rock Island, run through
Rock Island to Moline, necessitating
the train crew to come back to Rock
Island and stop at our hotels heie,
while their trains on the Illinois s'.de
pass through Moline, Rock Iiland,
cross the bridge to Dtvenport. mak
ing It necessary for the train crew ti
stop in Davenport, practically making
a way-station of our city. Tne orig
inal intention of the Milwaukee road
was to run their Kansas City trains
down on the Illinois side through
Rock Island, but now tbey intend to
run the Kansas City trains on the
Iowa side through, Davenport, and
through the efforts of our Davenport
citizens in connection with the desire
of the C, M. & St. I', officials they are
going to extend their mail runs to
Davenport, which will have the effect
of taking employes of the railway
mail service on certain runs to Dav
enport. I am also advised that there
is a determined effort on the part of the
Davenport merchants with an object
in view of changing the division office
of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
Railway company from Rock Island to
Davenport, also the Chicago, Burling
ton & tjuincy roundhouse, through
inducements offered by the Daven
port merchants. With all these facts
confronting our association consisting
of manufacturers, merchants and pro
fessional men, it behooves our asso
ciation to take immediato action."
Mr. Burns also spoke of the changes
under way on the Rock Island road
and the losses which are resulting to
this city as well as to some of the
road's employes whose homes are
here, and in conclusion introduced
the following resolution, which was
ThrM Bodies to Act Together.
"That the chair be given full power
to appoint a committee of as many
members of our association as he may
deem proper; said committee to act in
conjunction with such committees as
may be designated by the Rock Island
city council and Rock Island Club
with a view of conferring with the
chief officials of the various railroad
having rights and privileges and inch
other railway lines desiring to enter
here. The object being to promote
interests, mutual between the city
and the people of Rock Island and said
railroads. The chair is also author
ized to include the present and futnre
O. M. Loosely called attention to
the effect changes in the running
of the C. B. & Q. trains has had upon
a large trade which formerly came to
this city from the upper end and from
Whiteside. Previously people from
that section could get to this city and
home again the same day, but now ow
ing to the fact that the trains run over
the D., R. I. N. W. tracks to Clinton,
they can reach this city only through
Clinton, which practically cuts of the

ing that the matter be laid before the
officials of the road at once so that it
might be taken into consideration in
the forming of the new time table that
will go into tffdet next Sunday.
Mr. Hack oa Remedy.
Division Agent H. D. Mack, who was
present, was called upon and said he
had already brought this phase of the
question before General Passenger
Agent P. S. Eustis and Superintendent
of Illinois Lines F. C. Rice, and that he
was confident some means would be
f jund to overcome the difficulty. lie
also stated in reply to an inti
mation on the part of a mem
ber that the' Q has taken
employes away from this point that
the reverse has been true and that
about 50 persons have been recently
brought here to live, lie said also
that an effort Is now being made to
lengthen the St. Louis mail run from
this city to Savanna, in which case
three extra mall agents will be
brought here. Questioned in regard
to the probability cf the road's re
moving its terminus from this city tJ
Davenport, he replied that such a
course had net been thought of. In
support of this he pointed to the im
provements now being made in the
terminal facilities here, incidentally
stating that the sum of (2,500 will
soon be expended in enlarging the re
pair shops and roundhouse in this
city in order to better accommodate a
growing business and that a fill will
be made in the slough north of the
Rock Island road's yards to give ad
ditional switching room.
Facilities For Country People.
In a general discussion which took
place the need of facilities for people
from the surrounding country to get
in and out of town by rail to better
advantage was painted out. and it
was shown that tne time table of the
Rock Inland might be arranged with
more regard for the city's interests
A member also stated that Davenport
business men have demanded the re
moval of the passenger terminus to
their city and that they appear to fel
they are in a fair way to get it. The
result was the adoption of a resolu
tion authorizing the president to ap
point a permanent railroad committee
of three members.
Dr E M. "ala, in a short talk,
brought up the question of the devel
opment of factory sites in the west
part of town, and suggested a definite
plan for the purchase and improve
ment or a tract or lana.
Factory Seeking; Mew location.
F. G Young mentioned one factory
that employes about 30 men, which is
now looking for n suitable building in
which it can enlarge its output. The
desire is to secure a suitable tract of
land for building purposes with build -lag
capital at a low rate of Interest or
the use of a building which will meet
the needs of the concern at a reason
able rental. Davenport has held out
inducements and unless something is
done here within 80 days the offer
from across the river will be accepted.

appointed to look into the needs of
the concern and report at the next
meeting. The chair also naoied li

Terrific hitting by Rock Island was
the feature of today's game. The
collegians played desperately, but the
best they could do was to roll up five

Manager Tate said after the game:
"Judging from today's work by the
boys, they will be traveling a pretty
lively pace when the season opens.
Hoy, the new third baseman, is a hit
ter and a fielder, and we can thank
Secretary Lou Eddy for landing such
a prize. The players are a trifle sore
as yet, but will be in the best of shape
when the gong sounds."
Secretary Eddy arrived today A
newsboy quizzed him about the Roc i
Island team, and this is said to have
been his reply: "We have certainly
got a bunch of bread winners that the
old town won't have to lie down with,
for they are the best that is."

FIELD MEET PLANNED
FOR HIGH SCHOOL TEAMS
Tha managers of the Davenport
and Roi-k Island high school track
teams have completed arrangements
for a dual field meet between the two
high ecbols. - The date set is Satur
day, May 4, at the old fair grounds
on Ninth street in South Rock I-iland.
Parties who have followed the
schools In their contests are well
aware of the rivalry between them.
TInnr a HvaIv pnntpit ii naenrpd A
banner will be awarded to the school 1
scoring the most points and a fine
medal to the best all around athlete.
A small admission fee will be
charged to help defray the expenses
of the meet, ana the boys should have
the support of both cities.
Directly connected with this meet
is the annual interclass meet of the
high school, which occurs next Satur
day. Much enthusiasm is developing
among the different classes. The
seniors, who are sure of a great vic
tory, met last night to stir up their
nerve and tell each other how sure
they are. The juniors are expect d
to follow their example today, and no
doubt the other under classmen will
come up in force.
Tickets are selling like hot cakes,
and it is hoped that the boys will
come out clear of the great expense
due to their loss by the fire.
How the Reporter Got Bvcn.
The people of Muscatine are in
something approaching a tumult, be
cause their nice new opera house has
been in danger of falling down. The
wild eyed story tbat is on the street runs
to the effect tbat the walls have
been bulged, and need to be repaired.
All of which is the worst kind of non
sense. The statement reaches this
city, from a reliable source, tbat the
story was started by a reporter who
wanted to get square with the man
agement because he was refused a
couple of complimentary seats over
and above the allowance to his paper,
la any event the opera house is as
safe as any building in that town, and
the people who have been mainly in
strumental in circulating the report
are kept very busy now in trylDg to
stop it before it goei any further.
The incident goes to show the mis
chief that a foolish man can do when
he is playing with edge tools such as
all malicious stories are. Davenport
