In local railroad circles it is under

pointed to a fj-eneral office with the
Kock Island .system, s-iieceeilinj, prac

ger, a title until recently held by V.

the Alton. It is not known whether
he will be styled treneral manager or
whether that office will be abolished
and he become gencial superintend
ent. .' 'There is no official confirmation of
the pleasant news in. ol in- Mr.
Ilohbs. but the iriform-ititm comes
from a source that leads to the ,be
Tief that his selccticn has ulreiwly
becn settled upon: Mr. Ilohbs was un
til a few year :nr superintendent of
lines east i f Missouri for the K ck
IsIati.I, but in Ihe slmkcup that fol
lowed the executive ehanjje.s iuniiiru
ratcd by the new regime of financier
who -ot a footli.ld in. tin control of
the company he was lost track" of
for a time, and finally lauded in the
otliee of the treneral manager, to
whom he was nii'de assist ant.
Mr. llobbs .is wtdl knwvvn to the
employes :f the Kock Islaml, and all
would be glad to see him in the posi
tion of general superintendent. When
he had charge of the lines east of the
Missouri he kept in touch with the
men, and was considerate of every ap
peal made to him in his official ca
pacity. To Hen to re Oltl Ruter.
A few weeks ago the Kock Island,
r.urlmgton and Milwaukee roads an
nounced a reduction in freight rales
between the tri-cities and Chicago
amounting to about .'J cents per hun
dred pounds. This was on first-class
freight, which was cut from 4'",.-t:; to
4:i, and there was a corresponding
reduction in the IO classes which grad
uate to 10 cents per one hundred.
Shippers in other towns heard of
the concession made at this point,
and they demanded similar treatment.
The Northwestern road, which seems
to have been pressed the hardest of
any to meet the cut between CKnton
nnd Chicago-, protested to the manage
ments of the three roads entering
here, threatening that it would start
something that would amount to
more than .'J cents a hundred if old
rates were not resfcreil between acre
awl.' Chicago. The Kock -Island. 'Mil
waukee and Km lingtf n scented a
rate war, and forthwith decided on a
course looking to the preservation of
peace, with the result that the local
representatives f the three roads
have orders that the original rates
will be effective Nov. 1 I.
Will Connollclrtte Shipment.
The Kock Island has effected an
agreement that will overcome annoy
ing delays suffered by Davenport and
M( line shippers of freight to Chicago.
lTntil now the Moline ti linage, many
times ami unting to only a few thou
sand pounds, would be placet! in a car
and sent to the local .station to wait
transfer to a car containing the Kock
Islam! shipment ant! sent on to Chi
cago. The same process was followed
in regard to Davenport tonnage. The
consequence was that freight, from
Davenport and Moline would in fhc
majority of instances reach Chicago a
da late, for the reason that it would
arrive here after the departure of the
local car. The plan now agreed upon
is for the daily consolidation of the
tri-city tonnage, that from Daven
port and Moline to be switched 1o the
local freight depot before 4:'M) p. m.
Here it will be transferred from the

The announcement that the prelimi

off of the Kock Island had been com
pleted to Kansas City -from Trenton,
Mo., has been made. The .Kock Isl
and's lease for the use of the J'.urling

its Chicago line at Trenton to Kansas
The line will be a direct one from
Trenton to a connection with the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul tracks
at r.irminghc.m. a few miles from
Kansas City. The Kock Island' will
use the Milwaukee bridge into Kan

a connection with the Kock Island's
St. Louis line near Sheffield. From
Sheffield the trains of both the Kock
Island lines will enter Kansas City
over Ihe Kansas City belt line tracks.
The new cut-off will run through the
towns of Hebron. Kingston and Li
berty. It is .-ai.l that a plan is under way
for the building, of an independent
line for the use of the Kock Ishmd
between Topeka and Kansas City. The
Kock Island is now using the C.nion

The Kock Island is also planning to
terminate its least of the.l'nion Pa

but the road on which he was to be
a passenger to his destination had an
independent station in another part
of the city. A transfer, hack line is
operated between the -stations. His

hack. 'Having but 10 minutes fin

could find the conveyance. He was
directed to it. and took a scat. He
was the only passenger.
Presently the hack started. Ten

One of the best stories at the bar
banquet at the Harper Thursday
night was told by Judge 1'mery C.
(iincs, of (leneseo.
It wan in the days when Judge
(raves was a struggling lawyer. He
had been retained to defeml two ne
groes, who had been indicted for lar
cenv. One was a man and the other
was a boy of 11 years. Judge (iraves
had a conviction that the little fel
low was an innocent party and that
his companion was making an effort
lo free himself by shifting the blame
on the boy.
One flay, shortly before the trial,
he visited the lad in the jail.
"Now," said the attorney, "if you
nrc not guilty don't be afraid to say
so ritht out in court. Don't fear the
big fellow. If he is the one who com
mitted tlit t In-Tt say so. lie w ill do
you no harm. We are your friends
and will protect you."
The boy finally admitted that his
companion planned anil executed the
theft. , , .t,-
Judge (iraves naturally sympathized
with the hoy, ami was made all the
mi'je anxious to clear him since 'his
companion was endeavoring to place
the whole blame on the lad.
The day of fhc (rial came. Harvey
that was the boy's name was placed
on the stand.
"Now, Harvey, tell the court what
happened and just how it happened".
Tell all you know. Who stole the

Judge Craves said he was thunder
"Harvey, some one has been talk

" Yes." sir."
Judge (iraves here thought he could
bring out a telling point.
"Who was it. Harvey?"
"It was you Mistnh (iraves."
Judge Craves said he would have
given $10 if he could have been drop

up to him to clear himself.

JOHN LINES TO LEAD
THE BROADWAY CHOIR
John J. Lines, a tenor, who will be
pleasantly remembered as one of the
soloists in the presentation of "Elijah"
at the Illinois. theatre last season by
the Kock Island Choral society, has
come here to locate, having taken
charge' as conductor of the choir of
the Broadway Presbyterian church,
and aside from the duties, of that po
sition will give instruction in voice,
Mr. Lines comes from New York City,
where he received his musical educa
tion, having for eight years been a
student of Harry Wheeler, one of the
-.on n try's leading teachers of voice.
Mr. Lines prrpfses also to revive the
choral society, interest in which
seems to have lagged since- the re
moval from the city of C. F. Tocn
niges, to whose efforts the organiza
tion of the society was jri a great
measure due. " Mr. Lines says the so
iety has some excellent vocal mate
rial, and there is no reason why Kock
Island should not have as good a
chorus as there is in the state.

Arthur Chapman, writing from Dur
ban, Natal, South Africa, says: "As a
proof that Chamberlain's Cough Kem
edy is a cure suitable for old and
young. I pen you the following: A
neighbor of mine had a child just over
two months old. It had a very bad
cough and the parents did not know
what to give it. I suggested that if
they would get a bottle ff Chamber
Iain's Cough Kemedy and put some
upon the dummy teat the baby was
sucking it would no doubt cure the
child. This they did and brought
about a quick relief and cured the
baby." This remedy is for sale by
