Another head-end collision occurred
at the foot of Seventeenth street at

The coal train is an extra and has
no fixed time of arrival, although it
usually reaches Rock Island before

accident was reached. Here a stop
was made to wait for the switch en

The latter was pulling a striug of
cars cast. Engineer Chambers had
nen the coal train, but-thought it was
on the Peoria tracks. He was looking
back for signals as he approached the
block station and supposed the track
was clear till within a few yards of
the other engine. Neither crew had
time to jump before the machines
came together. The speed of Cham
bers1 engine was not great, but the
cars pushing from behind gave it
considerable momentum'. The tender
was shoved up into the cab and nar
rowly missed crushing the engineer's
legs. The switch engine also lost its
air dram and was otherwise damaged.
The freight engine's pilot was
smashed, but it came oil in much bet

rated they were able to run to the

Several days will be required in

Tho Fay no traction bill was defeated
in the house yesterday by a vote of
69 to 60. This was a senate bill. It
was intended to ratify the consolida
tion of tho Bock Island, Moline and
Davenport street railway companies,
which have been operated of lato un
der a consolidation agreement. The
bond issues were clouded, however.
and the bill was drafted to authorize
any street railway company organ
ized under the Jaws of the stato to
consolidate with any street railway
organized under the laws of any other
state. It provided, too, for every
safeguard that might prevent Chicago
companies taking advantage of the
measure. It was feared, though,
that this bill might in some way en
able the Chicago traction companies
to consouoato wttn Indiana compan
