Rock Island Reported to be Plan
ning a New Road Through
FIFTY MILES OFF DISTANCE
Improvement Brought About Dy
v Competition of Burlington
According to a report the Rock Isl
and road has practically completed
arrangements f(ir the construction of
a new short line across Iowa which
will be the shortest line between here
and Council Bluffs, and incidentally
the shortest between Chicago and
Omaha. The distance between Rock
Island and Council Bluffs will be
shortened between 40 and 30 miles
The terminals of the new line will be
Knoxville and Council Bluffs. It is
said that surveys have already been
made for the greater .part of the
route, and the route will be almost
a straigt line across .Marion,
Warren, Madison, Adair, Cass and
Knoxville is now a terminal of a
branch of the Rock Island, which is
built almost straight west' from here.
The country to be tapped by the pro
posed extension has very poor rail
road facilities, nearly all the lines
reaching it running north and south.
Among the towns that will probably
be reached by the proposed extension
i.re Indianola, Winterset, Greenfield,
Cumberland, Oriswold and Carson.
I'he main object in building the road
is to facilitate the handling of through
business on the Rock Island.
Mall Contracts an Object.
It is also rumored that the com
pany will go after the mail contracts
between Omaha and Chit-ago, over
which the Northwestern and Burling
ton have been contending for years.
the Burlington holding them at present
rhe new road will be considerably
shorter than either of the other lines.
and with the old main line to handle
the slow freight, there is nothing to
prevent an jinusual speed being at
tained. Time Change on Burlington.
A new time card becomes operative
on the Burlington tomorrow. Trains
entering Rock Island are' affected as
follows: No. 40. now arriving from
the south at f:3o a. m.. wi.l arrive at
6:5.", and will depart at 7:20.
No. 27, from the south, will arrive
at 7:15 p. m., instead Oi 7:10, and de
part at 7:40. as now.
No. 4S, from the north, will arrive
it 6:35 a. m.. instead of 7, departing
No. 50. from the north, will arrive
it 7 p. m.. as now, but the time of
departure is changed from 7:25 to
OFFICERS REELECTED BY
PEOPLES POWER COMPANY
The stockholders of the Peoples
Power company held their annual
meeting yesterday afternoon at the
office of the company on First ave
nue and Seventeenth street, reelect
ing the same officers for the ensuing
year, as follows:
President C. O. Nason, Moline.
Vice President Phil Mitchell, Rock
Secretary and Manager S. S. Davis,
Treasurer W. L. Velie, Moline.
Directors C. O. Nason, C. II. Deere.
W. L. Velie, Moline; S. S. Davis. Phil
Mitchell, T. B. Davis, Rock Island; A.
W. Vanderveer, Davenport.
The business of the year has in
creased to sneh proportions that the
company feels the need of further
improvements and extensions, and the
board of directors will meet again
the coming week to decide on what
is to be done in this direction during
the next year.

unscrupulous dealers in place of Fo

dealers for a little extra profit will

and thus jeopardize the lives of their

ROYAL BAKING POWDER
LOSERS ARE NOT SATISFIED
Davenport and Moline are Play In r Foot

Moline is inclined to grow "chesty
over the showing that the high school
team made on the gridiron Thanks
giving day against Joliet. "If we had
only been up against Rock Island
instead of Joliet," the3" are telling
each other, "the result would have
been different." Home of the papers
are advocating a post season game to
see if we are really the tri-city cham
pions. Across the river comment is
being pased around that if the team
had been playing in its usual form
Thanksgiving day there would have
been something worth telling about
and they would just like to see us do
it again, etc.

both Moline and Davenport were

is idle and unsportsmanlike. The tri

little men and look as pleasant as
It is said that Joliet intimated that
the winner of the Rock Island-Da ven
port game might be challenged bv that
city to a post season game. There is
some sense in this proposition, though
not much. If it would settle the state
championship there would be much
interest in it. but since Joliet was
beaten by a small score by Englewood
and has .not met some of the other
teams that are also putting forth a
claim to state honors, a post. season
game between Rock Island and Joliet
would hardly attract enough interest
to be profitable. The weather would
be an uncertain quantity, and the men
more or less out of condition so that
the results would probably be un-
atisfaetorv all around.

The pilot of the engine was broken
