Tri-City Railway Finally Decides
to Remove Its Car Shops
TEAOK ORDINANCE IS VETOED
Fourth Time Measure Has Been Re-jected-To
Having1 been turned clown by the
Davenport city council Saturday ev

quest for additional track' room for
its car houses on the other side of the
river, .T. F. Lardner, general manager
of the Tri-City l.ailway company, to
day ordered the removal of the car
shops of the company to Hock Island,
where there nre the accommodations
that have been so long sought in Dav
enport and where the company hopes
for more generous condsideration at
the hands of the city council in the
event it has any future favors to ask
in line with those that were denied
by Ihe Iowa city fathers.
The company had made a number of
concessions in hopes of securing per
mission' to use i portion of Hock Isl
and street in Davenport, where it had
acquired additional properly and ex
pected to invest quite a sum in the
erection of ew shops, but the coun
cil stood steadfastly against favoring
the company. Overture after overture
was made, and finally the threat that
the company would be obliged to re
move its shops to Koek Island if the
request was not acceded to.

a vote of five and three. But before
the meeting had ended Mayor ISecker
announced lie would veto the ordin
ance. An attempt was made to pass
it over the mayor's objection, but "t
So today, feeling ail moves on the
other side of the river had been ex
hausted, the company announced the
order for bringing the shops to Rock
Island. They will occupy the old car
barn on Fifth avenue.
Now that the climax of the affair
has apparently been reached, develop
ments will be watched with much in
terest by the patrons of the company

of the local distributing plant of th.

gone to Quincy, where he will be lo
cated in future. The local agency
has been abandoned, owing to the re

This explains the reason why the

The Koek Island road has let the
contract for I.'Sj locomotives to the
Brooks Locomotive works; the nia
chaines to be delivered for use on the
main divisions as soon as the com

Scale Hotine as Mil Hoard.
Saturday afternoon the police in
terfered to prevent the scale house
on Market square from being lost
sight of under a load of theatre and
circus posters. The, practice of al
lowing the scale house to be used as
a bil!board is strictly characteristic
of the present city administration.
Such a disfigurement of a publi"
structure is in direct violation of the
sentiment that has brought about a
movement in the interests of civic
benuty in Koek Island and is there
fore particularly odious. ,
