The street car power was myster

employ of the company failed to lo
cate the cause of the trouble. About
ihe wires suddenly became dead
and in spite of all sorts of coaxing
refused to return to life. A hasty

of the company were at their wits

and all again went merrily. Investi

the question. 1 he street car men say
it was the Peoples Power company's
fault and the latter says it wasn't
so there you are.
Secretary Davis, of the Peoples
power company, today declared the
trouble lay with the line men of the
street car company who had drawn
one of their back current wires in
Moline up against a main wire of the
power company and thus temporarily
divert ed the entire current.

The memliers of the state railway
and warehouse commission who ar
rivetl in the city yesterday afternoon
were Chairman J. S. Neville, of

field, consulting engineer; Supt. J. F,
(iibson, of the Milwaukee, and Gen
eral Manager E. F. Potter, of the I)..
I. I. & S. W. The party came on
special train of iwo cars which were
side tracked near the levee passenger
station, and some time was spent in
looking over the crossing at the fook
of Seventeenth street.
The Peoria and I).. II. T. & S.
roads have failed to arrive at an
agreement in regard to the sort of
crossing to Ik installed at the point
named and the commission had been
asked to formulate a plan ns a way
out of the difficulty. The North
western desires to double-track to
the bridge as soon as legal objections
are removed, and the crossing is one
of the obstacles. As at present oe-
rated there are frequent delays and
there is no absolute safeguard
against loss of life or property.

The commission will probably rec
