ROCK ISLAND. ILL
Judge Ramsay Renders Decision
in Suits Brought by
IMPORTANT VIOTOEY FOB COMPANY
Temporary Irjanctlon Granted I jf
Master Against Village
Tlie questions at. issue between the
village of Senrs anil the Tri-City Rail
way company which resulted in the
argument of two motiqns for injunc
tions early in the present term of
court have been decided by Judge
Itamsay, lefore whom they were ar
gued, in favor of the company. Tho
finding of the judge was filed here to
day. One of the motions argued was
made by the counsel for the village
for a dissolution of the temporary in
junction granted by Master in Chan
cery Kntriken at the time that the
citizens of the village tore up the
track across the Twelfth street road,
restraining them from a further mo
lestation of the property of the com
pany. The other was also made by
the counsel for the village and pray
ed an injunction to prevent the com
pany from operating its cars in the
village limits. IJoth were argued at
the same time and both were taken
under advisement by the judge. To
day it was learned that the motion
for the dissolving of the injunction
in force had been overruled and the
petition for the other had been re
IecUlon Important One.
This is considered an important,
victory for) the company in its bear
ing upon the other suits now pending
with the villages of Sears and Milan.
Of course, the plaintiffs may take an
apjeal. but that will require time,
and it. is doubtful if the people of
Sears will be willing to back up a pro
longed fight for the amount that is at
stake. The company is represented
in the case by Jackson. Hurst & Staf
ford, while Ken worthy & Ken worthy
are conducting the case of the vil
lage. Opinion of Court
The court holds that as to the ques
tion raised by the village that no no
tice was given for the renewal of the
franchise, that no notice was neces
sary because that law requiring no
tice applied only in cases where it
was an original construction of the
road, and not where it was a renew
al of a franchise, and that this same
question is involved as to the peti
tion of the abutting land owners.
That no petition was necessary in
case of a renewal. ' i
The court holds that the ordinance
was legally passed; that it received
three votes of the four trustees in
the village board; that the words, "in
the village board," applied to trus
tees, who were then members of the
village board, and that the vote that
the ordinance obtained of three for
and one against was a legal vote,
when there were only four members
in the village board.
The court also holds that the Tri-
City Iiailway company is a railroad
within the meaning of the law of
1S97, and that it is excepted from its
Power to Extend Franchise.
The court also holds that the vil
lage board had power to extend the
franchise at anv time before the ex
piration of the old license.
And on the contention that the vil
lage board had no power to extend
the franchise to a foreign corpora
tion, the court holds that such a
question is not properly Involved in
these injunction suits.

PROPOSED RAILWAY LOOP
- The Kock Island Retail Merchants'
association held its regular meeting
last evening, transacting nothing but
routine business. Some time was
spent in discussing the proposed loop

THEIR CHARGE TOR VISITS
A meeting of Hock Island and Mo
line physicians was held at the Har
per house last evening for the con
sideration of a new fee bill prepared
by a committee appointed at a pre
vious meeting at which a revision
was decided upon. The bill as re
ported was adopted and the commit
tee was authorized to complete cer
tain details and present it to the li
censed physicians of the two cities
for their signatures, upon which it
will go into effect.
The changes are few in number
The most important is that raisin
the charges for visits within the lim
its of either city between the hours
of 8 a. m. and 0 p. m. to from $1.50 to
$3. Ky the bill now in force the lim
its are from $1 to $3. The fees for
visits between the hours of C and S
a. m. and G and 10 p. in. are left as
before, from $2 to $4, as are those be
tween the-hours of 10 p. m. and 6 a.
m., now $3 to $. The charges for
obstetrical and surgical practice are
practically the snme as those now In
force, although a number of new op
erations have been added to the lists
Local physicians state that the
charges in Ihis city are now the same
as those in Davenport and in other
cities of the same rank as Kock Isl
and. In Moline there is no fee bill in
force at the present time and there
has accordingly been great irregular
ity in the fees charged.
