Abandoned C. R. I. & P. Freight
House Taken by Hartz &
Bahnsen Cempany. ,
IN TRAFFIC USE 35 YEARS
Razing of Building Contemplated in
Order to Strengthen Tracks
May Be Done Later.
Through a lease signed yesterday,
the Rock Island gave possession of Its
abandoned freight house on Twentieth
street to the Hartz Bahnsen com
pany for use as a warehouse. The
lease has been under consideration for
some time, the wholesale druggists
making application for the use of the
building as a warehouse as soon as It
became known that the freight house
would be abandoned by the railway
aad its forces transferred to Silvis.
The lease provides for termination at
will on 30 days notice by either of
the parties. -
When the company's freight business
was all transferred to Silvis, the dis
position of the old freight house was
taken under consideration by the
road's officials at once. It was thought
first to tear the structure down, thus
making possible the straightening of
the switch tracks in the lower yard.
Temporary occupancy was granted the
Hartz & Bahnsen compeny, and the
lease followed yesterday.
Kreeted 'M VfBM Ago.
The old building was erected about
thirty-five years ago, under the early
management of the C. R. I & P. rail
way, the old freight house of the Chi
cago & Rock Island, located there, be
ing turned over to the St. Paul. The
St. Paul occupied the old building until
the D. R.I. N. W. transfer became ef
fective, when the building was taken
by the Rock Island Sand and Gravel
company. It was tken removed from
its old site on Twentieth street to a
site along the yard tracks near Twenty-third
street, where it is now used
for a coal shed.
HOME COMING CELEBRATION
R. C. Willerton Among Oswego's
Strayed Population to Return.
The Oswego (N. Y.) Palladium
prints replies from several former res
idents who have received invitations
to have a homo-eoming celebration in
June, which is being prepared for in
that city. 'Among them is one from
Robert C. Willerton of Rock Island,
which is as follows:
"Robert C. Willerton, Rock Island,
111.: To me it was very gratifying to
heer from the old town where I was
raised, and I thank you heartily for
the invitation. I think the idea and
the enterprise shown by the Palladium
admirable, and shall try and visit the
old home during the celebration."
To this the Palladium adds:
"Mr. Willerton Js recorder of Rock
Island commandery, K. T. He left
here thirty odd years ago. He is prom
inent in Rock Island both in business
and masonic circles. Many old friends
still here will be glad to greet him in
July. The Palladium's bureau is in
debted to him for many addresses and
SOUTH HEIGHTS IN
Meeting Tonight to Discus Forming
an Improvement Association.
Residents of South Heights, impress
ed by the bad condition of Seventeenth
street south of tle city limits, and the
need of other things that they have
not been able to secure in the past,
have called a meeting at Paridon's
store at 8 o'clock this evening for the
purpose of discussing the abvisability
of forming an improvement associa
tion. It has been suggested that with
proper cooperation it will be' possible
to gradually macadamize the streets,
perhaps using crushed stone furnished
from the state prisons. This will be
talked over. Another question that i
pressing for solution is that of provid
ing a better route to the school house.
Th building is located on Twenty
fourth street and now can be reached
only by a circuitous and unimproved
road, pupils being forced to vsde in
the mud during a large part of the
time. Building a sidewalk on Twent
ieth avenue or some avenue south from
Seventeenth street to Twenty-fourth
street will be up for discussion tonight.
And there are various other matters.
