Tri City Railway Company Finds
- Connecting of Bluff Loop.
MATTER BEFORE THE COUNCIL
Dimcnltles on Twenty-fifth Street
Referred to Regular
The TrI-City Railway company last
evening submitted to the council in
committee of the whole the amended
route for the proposed line complet
ing the bluff loop for which a petition
had been previously presented, and
which has been heretofore referred
to in The ATgus.
As originally proposed the road
would have connected the lines at
Twentieth street and Fourth avenue
with the bluff line at Eighteenth
avenue and Twenty-second street via
Eighteenth avenue, Twenty-fifth
street. Ninth avenue, Twenty-first
street, Sixth avenue and Twentieth
street, it was found necessary upon
making a survey of the upper part
of Twenty-fifth street to change this,
the matter of straightening curves
and grading involving a greater ex
pense than the company cares to un
Loop Will be Cat.
Therefore it is now proposed to per
ate the Longview line by running the
curs. down the east line, through the
city and "out the west side, turning
back each time. The route it is now
proposed to follow with the east line
is as follows: Beginning at Ninth
avenue and Twenty-fifth street, run
west to Twenty-first street, north to
Sixth avenue west to Twentieth,
and north on Twentieth street
to the 'present lines at Fourth ave
nue, and then around through the
business district to the beginning of
the west half at Fourth avenue and
It is also proposed to extend the
west half of the line from Eighteenth
avenue and Twenty-second street,
where the present ordinance leaves
it, east along Eighteenth avenue to
Thirtieth street, and north on that
thoroughfare to connect with the
present Elm street line. It is propos
ed to operate this -road "with trans
fers to all the other lines on this side
of the river and on a regular and
The1 council discussed the route
quite thoroughly, in committee and
voted to referthe matter to a regu
TELL-TALE TBACKS ARE
USED IN CRIMINAL CASE
A case came -up for hearing before
JnsiK'e McFailane this nuriimg) in
which Louis. Frank and" William Mc
Kaufskey, brothers, of Moline. were
charged with malicious mischief iind
Louis was charged with larceny as
bailee. The complaining witness was
William Minor, of Drurv. .Minor is a
fisherman and fa rim r ami ' last fall
the McKaufskey brothers lived neigh
bor to him.
Trouble arose and now Minor ac
cuses the others of having stolen his
harness which they had borrowed and
of having cut his fish nets and de
stroyed his skiiHV The-brothers were
arrested Wednesday by Constable Si
mon (ioldberg and were placed in $400
bonds for an appearance.' This morn
ing they were represented by. W. t
Allen, while State's Attorney Weld
appeared for the state. The defense
took a change of venue to Justice
Sehriver, where a heaping is in prog
ress this afternoon. During the pre
liminaries it was agreed that the
charge of larceny-as bailee should be
dropjied upon return of the harness
and the charge of malicious mischief
was dismissed against all but Louis
McKaufskey.. It was claimed that
his identification as the guilty party
has been- rendered complete by a
comparison of his shoes with the
tracks that were found in the mud
after the crime had been committed.
PARTY TO A DJsGjsPTION
The extent to which many people
jok to the jwdiceman as an authority
7n all matters of i,ct. law, and even
ethics was illustrate i anew last even
ing when Desk Se jvant Bergsten
answered a telephone call at the po
lice station The silvery tones of a
young lady's voice came to his car,
and this is .what she said: "Please,
Mr. Officer, would you arrest me if I
oressed up for the masquerade to
look like my sister?"
Upon recovering from his surprise
the desk sergeant gave his gracious
permission. "Why, certainly not,"
said he, "dress up like your brother,
if you want to."
Did anyone notice a person that
looked" like someone else at the Ar
mory last evening?
Public notice is hereby given that
the co-partnership heretofore exist
ing between John . 1. Sexton and
George Schneider, under the style and
firm name of John 1. Sexton .-. Co.,

be made in county camp to indorse
that plan or its equivalent.
"Resolved, That we recognize the
necessity existing at the present time
for some change from our present
rates. We favor a change which will
be just to both the old and the young
members of the society and which,
by placing the society on a secure
basis, will prevent a recurrence of the
present harmful agitation, lhe dele

fore instructed to give their indorse
ment to any reasonable plan of pro
cedure having" for its object the adoj-
tion by the Indianapolis head camp
