For Rebuilding of Bridge Across
Rock River in Vicinity
ADVANTAGES CLAIMED FOB IT
Furnishes Basis for Compromise of
the Various Interests
Now that the parties back of the
Western Illinois Kleetrieal mail have
seen fit tii make public .some sort of
a proposition with reference to se
curing brulfre facilities over Rock
river, the possibilities of the tiling
have led to a revival of the discussion
of that much mooted question, anil u
new scheme has been suggested.
This, while as yet in crude form, has
some points to recommend it. anil is
therefore worthy of consideration.
It is pointed out that the present
mule of the road from Milan to Sears
across Jlock river, is a circuitous one,
and involves a greater length of
bridge than is really necessary to
cross the stream. Not including the
bridge across the south channel there
are six spans with two short bridges,
one an approach and the other across
the ol.l canal at Sears. In all there are
a doen piers. When it becomes ne
cessary to rebuil 1 the bridges, as it
will before electric cars can cross
with safety, it will probably be neces
sary to rebuild at least part of the
piers. In that event it is held that if
a single bridge were thrown across
the main stream below the islands, a
considerable sating in cost could be
New lioail From Searn
If a nuim mad were extended
slightly west of south from the junc
ture of the Ninth and Twelfth street
roads in Sears. Kock river would be
reached at the point formed by the
bend in the river just below the old
paper mill, and from there a bridge
could be erected to Ilig island. Then
by following the western village limit
south across the canal, and the nar
row south channel, the present high
way would be reached near the north
end of what is known as Cheney's
lane. The road thus afforded would
bring all points to the south and west
a mile or more nearer to this city
than by the present road, and assum
ing that llie government could be
prevailed upon to remove the canal
brid re to the new crossing, would
greatly simplify the bridge building
If Milan and the country to the east
were disposed to object to such a
course they might retain the bridge
across the south channel and the
present road down the canal ban'.; j
which would still leave the distance
from .Milan to Kock Island no great
er than it is now. As the south chan
nel accommodates only Mill creek
now, a bridge half the length of the
present one would be sufficient to
cover it, and probably one of the
present iron bridges across the mid
dle channels could be used for Milan's
Some I'lnn Necetmary.
It must by this time be cxiilent to
every thinking citizen of Kock Isl
and, and every observing- resident of
the adjacent territory to the south
that the question of permanent and
convenient highway connections be
tween the county seat and the lower
end of the county is one that must
be settled for a reiteration, at least,
and that within the next five years.
Two of the bridges now in use will be
past repairing, and the other two will
have to be replaced by heavier ones.
The wise thing to do is for all the in
terests involved to get together, map
out a plan and all work for it.
Of course a road paralleling the
Mississippi river and running' near its
banks to the lower end of the county,
would be a most desirable improve
ment, but many hold' that the cost is
an obstacle that there is no prospect
of overcoming- for years. The city
would have to build such a road prac
tically alone, and o maintain it after
wards. It would be calculated to
draw trade from a considerable dis
tance, and the building" of a railway
line to the lower end of the county
would, in great measure dispense with
the need for it.
Cheap and Direct.
On the other hand, the route above
mapped out would embody advan
tages that would appeal to all inter
ests. It would be comparatively free
from eng-inering- difficulties and there
fore cheap, and direct to nil Mints
of any yet proposed. With these ad
vantages there ought to be little dif
ficulty in perfecting- an arrangement
between the city an interurhan rail
way company that means business,
by which new bridges can be built
and their maintenance provided for
without charging" the publie tolls for

for coughs, colds and lung troubles.

NEW DEPARTMENT OF
W. C. T. U. IS ESTABLISHED
The local W. C. T. U. yesterday af
ternoon met at the home of .Mrs.
William MiL. Stewart, and in addi
tion to transacting other business,
established a new department enti
tled the "cradle roll." This has been
finned for the esMcial consideration
of subjects relating to children from
infancy to G years of age. .Mrs. J.itz
riidt was chosen leader of this de
partment. The subject considered
yesterday afternoon was 'The Kela
tion of the Mother to the Home," up
on which a paper was read by Mrs.
Atkinson, of Moline. Mrs. Atkinson
presented the subject in a very care
ful and interesting manner and the
discussion was profitable. Plans for
the work of the society during the
coming year were outlined.

Chicago is enjoying one of the most
delightful seasons of grand opera in
Knglish that has yet been recorded.
The engagement of the Castle Square
ojM'ra company at the Studebaker
theatre is proving a genuine treat to
music lovers and they are showing
their appreciation of the admirable
organization by exceedingly liberal
patronage. The past week was de
voted to the opera "Tosca" which is
Victor Sardou's intensely dramatic
story "I-a Tosca" set to music by
Puccini. "Tosca" had never before
been heard in Knglish in Chicago and
the production proved a decided suc
cess for the Castle Square company.
Indeed Mr. Savage's singers have cov
ered themselves with glory in the Kn
glish interpretation of this great
classic-. This week I'.alfe's "Kohemian
Girl" is given in all its tuneful and
magnificent splendor. Kehearsals will
begin this week for George Ade's
new light opera, "Peggy of Paris,"
which Henry W. Savage will produce
in Chicago at the Studebaker theatre
soon after the first of the year. The
music of the opera is by William Ko
ranic, of "Salome" and "Zomona"
fame, and is said to be particularly
tuneful. The book is decidedly Ad
esque, being much on the order of
this popular author's universally read
"Fables in Slang." which have
brought him recognition as one of
the foremost humorists in America.
"Peggy of Paris" will be by a'l odds
the most elaborate light opera pro
duction Mr. Savage has brought out.
The event of the coming of Mascag
ni and his grand opera company to
Kock Island is one that may well
challenge the attention of every per
son in this region. Mascagni himself
occupies a position of snch promi
nence in the musical world, and
whose achievements have shed such
light from the musical firmament lat
terly, that his presence alone en
titles him to the warm recognition,
not. alone of devotees of music but
of the general public. I'nqestionably
Mascagni is one of the most illus
trious peers of the younger genera
tion of composers and his "Cavalleria
Kusticana" is bound to live as his
greatest monument thus far for peri
ods to come, but aside from Mascag
ni, the presence of the organization
which is composed of one hundred
persons, the orchestra alone number
ing 54, is one that might well rivet
the attention at any place. A most
brilliant performance is offered in
the coming of the great organization
on Christmas night. Part first will be
in, operatic concert form by members
of the .cast and the full orchestra di
rected by Mascagni.
Part second will be given to the
production of the entire opera."Caval
leria" full cast, chorus and orchestra
in costume, all directed by Mascagni.
The giving of "Cavalleria Kusticana"
by the composer himself reveals" such
mysterious and inexplicable depths
and beauties of emotional sympathy
on the part of the composer and his
trained musicians and singers, such
as another one who does not possess
feelings of parental affinity could
hardly feel or disclose, no matter how

DUE TO SUNSTROKE
Mystery of Demented Man Who
Tried to Hold Train
WIPE TAKES HIM TO BURLINGTON
Manner in Which Ho Keached Rock
Island Not Fully Ex
plained. Mrs. L. K. Warner, wife of the de
mented man found at the Kock Island
passenger station Monday night, ar
rived last evening from her home in
Kurlington and today, with the as
sistance of Sheriff McArthur, of
Scott county, took her husband
across the river to remove him to
their home. I'nless he recovers at
once he will be placed in an asylum.
The case is a sad one and the man
ner in which the demented man
reached the city is something of a
mystery. Ordinarily he is perfectly
sane, although this is not the first at
tack of the kind he has experienced.
The trouble, according to the wife's
story, is due to an attack of sun
stroke sustained by Mr. Warner whin
he was IS years of age. Since then he
has from lime to time manifested
symptoms of being mentally unbal
anced and of late th spells have been
more severe than formerly.
Had to (live I'p llaHlncHii
Three years ago he sold his busi
ness at Fairfield. Iowa, on account of
the recurrence of these attacks and
the family removed to lturlington.
Last week he left home in company
with a traveling man who was an old
friend and wished to take him along
on a trip through the northern part
of the state. While, somewhere west
of here he felt an attack coming on
and the friend started him for home,
telephoning to Kurlington that he
was on the way. That was the last
heard of him till he was found here.
Mr. and Mrs. Warner are of middle
age and are evidently people of means
an I highly respectable. The husband
showed no desire to commit violence,
but he was utterly irresponsible and
his ceaseless activity rendered it nec
essary to handle him bv force.
much imbued with the spirit of a
production. Mascagni feels the won
derful emotions that sprang in the
conception of the opera and gave it
its wondrous beauties, quite as much
in the public performance as in the
writing of the work. Cutler his baton
one sees and hears the opera as
under no other influence possible. The

everything to please. The theatrical
