NO CASE IN COURT
Judge Graves Dismisses Quo
Warranto Suit Against Tri
VICTORY FOR THE RAILWAY
Court Holds That Interest of Public
Would Not Be Served by Stop
ping the Street Cars.
Upon motion of the attorneys for the
defendant Judge Graves this morning
dismissed the case of the people ex rel
S. R. Ken worthy vs. the Tri-City Rail
way company, which has been in the
court in the form of a quo warranto
proceeding for about a year and a half.
In this is a sweeping victory for the
defendant company in attempting to
preserve its rights in. the city of Rock
Serve Xotlee to Council.
The ease was first brought to public
attention when notice was served upon
tn'e city council ordering that body to
hare removed from the streets of the
city of Rock Island all of the tracks,
poles and wires of the Tri-City Rail
way company, or action in court would
be commenced compelling the removal
thereof. Subsequent, to this the quo
warranto proceedings were begun with
S. R. Ken worthy as the relator.
I en ainf of IVoplV.
Slate's Attorney H. A. Weld went
into the case alleging in his petition for
the writ that the people were interest-e-d
in the granting of the writ, and set
ting forth that the cars were being op
erated on the streets of the city with
out paying the city any revtnue there
for. Affidavits were submitted show,
ing that in a published article Mr.
Webl had suggested that the ease
would be dismissed if the company
would make certain concessions, one
of thera' being to pay revenue to the
city of Rock Island.
Do ot olni-itlf.
In deciding the matter this morning
Judge Graves said that the evidence in
dicated that the thing asked for was
not the thing wanted; that while they
were asking for an order of ouster the
evidence indicated that what was
wanted was that the 'defendant com
pany slhonld pay a franchise tax to the
city of Rock iHlHtwl.
It wai,ei.that while the petitivn
set forth thau.it was interest of the
people, it wouJJ not hi reality serve
the interests of the people in stopping
the cars from operating in the city. As
it had been asked that the cars be
stopped that was the only question be
fore the court, and it could not antici
pate what might be done by the com
pany toward serving the people in the
payment of the required revenue, or
compliance with other demands, that
would allow it to continue operations
and not tie up traffic.
The court held further that during
all of these ytrs the people have n
eognized the company's rights ami ac
quisccd while the company has gone
ahead ami spent thousand.. po thous
ands of dollars in the6ity of Rock
Is!and, and that if now estopped from
action that would amount to practical
confiscation of vested rights.
An appeal will be taken to the supreme-
court. -Jackson. Hurst & Staf
ford and Searle & Marshall are attor
neys for the defendant company, which
was also represented in court this
morning by President E. E. Cook ami
leneial Manager J. V. Lardner. The
relator was represented by J. T. Ken
worthy, H. A. Weld and State's Attor
ney J. K. Scott.
