Are Considered by the
Through action. of the city council
at its meeting "last night the proposed
industrial bureau is assured, as the
Rock Island Club and the Ketail Mer
chants' association stand ready to co
operate with the city. AUK ,Vndersoi),
of the special committee appointed to
confer with the two other organiza
tions, reported a recommendation for
an industrial bureau to consist of
three' appointees from each of .tile,
three interested elements, the cin
mission thus chosen to elect a per naa
nent secretary; of; business ability1,
good address 'and recognized stand
ing, who is to devote all h time
the collecting of statistics, the prep
aration of nn illustrated pamphlet to
be sent to interested parties, the mak
ing of trips and entertaining of visi
tors. To start the bureau will require 93,
K)0, the understanding is that the
council will assume half and the other
bodies the balance. The resolution
was accepted and adopted with the
understanding that the election of a
secretary should be confirmed by the
council. Aid. Birkel Avivs added to the
Pump and Sewage Matter.
A resolution was presented by Aid.
Rlochliiiger providing for a new elec
tric pump at the flood gates and the
placing of the building in proper con
dition. The city engineer explained
that a pump run by a motor would
require only one man to look after it
and would prove more satisfactory in
other ways. lie recommended that a
new brick building be erected to ac
commodate it. The resolution was re
ferred to the mayor and the superin
tendent of the waterworks. Tempor
ary arrangements have been made to
take care of the excessive quantity
of water in the sewers 1)V an addition
al steam pump from the saw mill.
The report of the' eity: engineer on
his plan. for the new addition to the
sewage system 'was received.-' The ter
ritory covered is. . west of .Twelfth
street and between Xinth and Efgh
teenth avenues. According to the
plans the entire Black Hawk territory
will be cut rff from the Twelfth street
sewer, which will result in a great re
lief to that already overburdened part
of the system. No estimate of the
cost was gien. as the people further
'west' are still to be provided for and
changes will probably have to be
made. On motion of Aid. Kckhart
the council voted to visit the vicinity
Saturday afternoon and look overthe
A' petition was "received from prop
erty owners on Fifteenth street liv
ing, between Twelfth and Eighteenth
avenues for the aving of that section
of the street with brick. The petition
was referred to the board of public
improvement for necessary considera
tion. The board presented the estimate
for the paving of Twenty-ninth street
with brick for a width of 30 feet from
Seventh to Ninth avenues. The pas
sage of the ordinance was recom
mended and on roll call the recom
mendation was adopted. The. cost is
estimated at $fi.S08.60. The question
of repaying Twentieth street from
Second to Fourth avenues was
brought up by A hi. Birkel and it was
referred to the board of local im
provement with the recommendation
that an asphalt sub-layer be looked
The dump boat received another
rapping last night. Three distinct pe
titions were received protesting
against the present location at the
foot of Seventh street. The alder
men from the ward stated that if the
people in the vicinity could o"nly have
the assurance that the council would
remove it as soon as a road could be
put in shape, that there would be no
trouble. The petitions were referred
to the health and police committee.
Woo Id Enforce Ordinances. '
Aid. Kckhart started a ti-vely dis
cussion by making a motion to the
effect that the chief of police be re
quired to enforce the city ordinances
in regard to the harboring of women
in or about saloons. He gave it as his
opinion that things were about the
same as they were before the recent
grand jury action. The motion led to
some rather cutting tilts between
some of the councilmen, and a substi
tute was finally passed referring the
matter to the committee on health
and police. - ..-. a

FAITH IN THE WEST
Financiers Expect Great increase
in Population in Next
ROOK ISLAND EXPANSION EVIDENCE
Possibilities or the Dig System Are
Considered Almost Lim
itless. The rapid expansion of the Uock Isl
and System in two years from a com
pany with little over 3,0O0 miles of
lines to an immense system of nearly
15,000 miles is a most conspicuous ex
ample of the tremendous faith leaders
in 1he railroad and financial worlds
have of the future of the country.
Western consolidations of recent
years have been based upon the be
lief that within the next :;o years
the territory west of the Missouri
river will be as densely populated in
its fertile regions as are the eastern
states at the. present time. This be
ing the case, western roads have but a
few years in which to prepare for the
greatest commercial and industrial de
velopment in the history of the coun
try. The census bureau has estimated
that in 1933 the population of the
United States will be between l.VV
000,000 and 1G0.OO0.0O0. This means
that when the time arrives the terri
tory west of the Mississippi will be as
thickly settled as in the state of New
York, leaving the city of New York
out of account. It is dillicult to real
ize what this would mean to western
railroads in the way of trallic, so
great are the possibilities. Undoubted
ly the Uock Island expansion is based
on a belief in the correctness of the
census bureau's estimated growth of
Had Important Cateway.
Starting with Chicago as the great
central point, therefore, the Uock Isl
and has been hastening to, establish
itself at the important traffic gate
ways of the present and the future
and to establish lines of intercom
munication between them. The com
pany now is firmly intrenched at the
Missouri river gateways of Omaha.
Kansas City and St. Joe, at the Missis
sippi river gateways of St. Paul. St.
Louis and Memphis, at the gulf port
of (ialveston, and soon will be at
New Orleans, and at the two main
western gateways of Denver and Kl
Paso. The traffic gateways are im
portant to the success of railroads
as is the possession of fortified
strategic points to a country in time
The Uock Island now apparently has
a comprehensive grasp upon the traf
lie gateways west of Chiengo, and has
placed itself in position yto accept a
generous portion of the traffic from
the northwest, the west and the
southwest and to turn it by means of
the Chicago, St. Louis and Memphis
gateways to the markets of the east
or toVhandle it through its gulf port,
whichever course may appear from
time to time to be for the best inter
of its patrons and itself.
Robert Mather, vice president of
the Rock Island, has explained to the
Texas authorities why his company
bought a half interest in the Texas
lines of the Southern Pacilic. He
said: "The Uock Island is essentially
a north and south system and the de
velopment of the system is toward a
movement of the traffic from the
north to the south and vice versa.
"The territory from which the com
pany draws its business extends from
the great lakes to the gulf and from
the . Mississippi river to the Rocky
mountains. It is essentia therefore,
that our system have adequate entry
and facilities at the gulf ports of
Texas, liy our latest acquisition we
gain access to two gulf ports. ,
"The Southern Pacific, from which
an interest in these lines has been
purchased, is essentially nn east and
west xystem, transporting products
between the Atlantic and Pacific
coasts, and the lines I speak of were
not essential to the plan upon 'which
the Southern Pacific is constructed.
Because these lines are of much more
importance to the Rock Island than
the Southern Pacific it has been ar
ranged that the Rock Island shall se
lect their presidents."
