the viaduct which forms part of the
bridge from this arsenal to the city of
Rock Island, I was compelled to re
quire the Tri-City Railway company to
witnuraw its heavy cars and to operate
only light cars across the bridge.

from the bridge all wagons hauling
loads of more than two tons.
"The viaduct has now been so far
strengthened as to permit recall of in
structions issued last June, and I have
consequently advised the Tri-City Rail
way company that they resume run
ning their larger cats, and have also in
formed firms whose heavy loads were
excluded from the bridge that they may
now resume ordinary traffic.
"The necessary false work to sustain
the viaduct will remain in position un
til removed, probably next spring, when
the reconstruction of another bridge is
