FIRE AT MIDNIGHT
Blaze Damages Home of Col. C.
W. Durham to Extent
LACE CUfiTADr IGNITED BY CANDLE
Firemen Have Trouble Getting Cor
rect Address by Tele
phone. The residence of Col. C. W. Durham,
10:0 First avenue, was badly damaged
by lire early yesterday morning, the
eeond floor of the north portion of
he buildintr beinir partially destrov-
d and the contents both above anil
elov suffering greatly from smoke
ind water. Incidentally another in-
lauee is furnished of the unsatisfact
ory working of the telephone as a
means of communieatinir alarms.
The fire started shortly after 1
clock from a candle that was nlac-
d too near a lace curtain. Mrs. Dur
ham tat up Kfter midnight reading in
her room upstairs. A caudle furnish
ed her light. She dropped asleep in
her chair only to be awakened by the
blaze. Seeinc that the lire was be-
'ond her control she at once crave the
larm, arousing the other - members
of the family, and then attempted to
ommunicate with the fire depart
ment by telephone.
Apparently the operator became
xcited, for repeated attempts to get
he address correctly failed. In the
meantime the crew at the Central en
gine house had manned the trucks
and was ready to start. Finally, the
10-year-old son ran barefooted

a different telephone.
Thus the department arrived after
the fire had been burning about a
quarter of an hour and by that time
he blaze had broken through the
roof. Considerable water had to be
used to save the building, but the
flames were finally subdued before
they had crone to the first floor.
The total loss is estimated at about
$2,500. There is $3,500 insurance on
he house anil $2,000 on the contents.

BROWN CONGRATULATED ,
ON LATEST TRIUMPH
Landlord Charles McIIugh, of the
Harper, is an intimate acquaint
ance of C. YV Brown, who rose
from brakeman running out of
this city to general manag
er of the New York Central. The
other day Mr. Mellugh wrote Mr.
Ilrown sending congratulations .upon
the manner in which that gentleman
took hold of and cleared the con
gested yards of his road at ISuffalo,
moving 25,800 cars in a single day,
and breaking all previous records in
railroading. In his acknowledgement
of the letter just received Mr. Ilrown
expresses the interest that he feels
in this community and the hope that
he may at no distant future date
meet once more with Iloek Island
This is the., third time .Mr. Brown
has brought himself prominently into
notice through a display of his re
markable generalship. The first in
stance was on the occasion that he
frustrated a plan to rob a train near
Joseph, Mo., by sending out a
clammy train with an armed posse n
board. The result was decidedly dis
astrous to the robbers The second
case was that in which he succeeded
in preventing the passage of the law
by the Iowa state legislature making
the passenger fare in that tate two
cents instead of three.
The latest performance, however,
is rated as easily above the others,
esiK-eiallv in point of the degree of
ability in his particular field that was
manifested and goes to show that Mr.
Brown is not sleeping on his laurels.
Many of his friends are now ready to
claim that he is the greatest of liv
ing railway operators.
Public notice is hereby given to all
persons interested, that the tinder-
signed, Tri-City Railway company,
will, at a meeting of the city council
of the city ot Rock Island, to be held
at the city council room March 2
next, at the hour of S o'clock p. m.,
present a petition to said city council.
praying that it will grant to the un
dersigned, Tri-City Railway company,
the right to construct, operate and
m5tain. for a period f 20 years, a
single or double track electric street
railway, with the usual and necessary
appurtenances and appliances, to run
its street cars upon, along, over and
across the following streets and ave
nues in said city of Rock Island, to
wit: Beginning at a point on Eighteenth
avenue in paid city at the southern
terminal of Twenty-second street,
there to connoct with the street car
track from the west; thence east n
Eighteenth avenue to Thirtieth street;
thence north on Thirtieth street to
Fourteenth avenue, there, to connect
with the present line at the corner of
said Thirtieth street and Fourteenth
avenue. Also commencing at a point
on Ninth avenue at the intersection
of lwenty-hfth street and running
thence west on Ninth avenue to Twen
ty-first street; thence north on Twen

PASSENGERS FAIL TO
GET WHAT THEY PAY FOR
There is some dissatisfaction being
xpresscd over the new rule that
went into effect on the l'eoria branch
of the Bock Island the first of the
present month by which there is a
general increase of fares between
this city and most of the points down
the line. This was brought about, as
was told in The Argus at the time,
by changing the terminus at this end
from the Twentieth street depot to
the Fifth avenue depot, making a dif
ference of about a mile.
The protest over .thy new rates is
liarticularlv strenuous on the part or
hose who travel to the city from the
nearby towns by rail. They are in
clined to expostulate against paying
for a ride to the upper station when
tlu3' have no business in that end of
town. There is a positive injustice in
the application of the present system
to the trains on the Mercer county
branch. Passengers are compelled to
pay the. additional fare amounting to
four or live cents each way, when as
matter of fact the trains do not
run to the upper depot at all, ami if
passenger wishes to transfer to the
main line he must employ some other
method of getting there if he is in
too big a hurry to wait till a passen
