To Discuss Girder Removal. The
large number of fatalities for which
the overhead girders at the Main and
Hariison street crossings near the
Rock Island station have been respon
sible, and which increase rather than
diminish in frequency as the years go
by, with the steady increase in rail
road travel, have brought to a head
again the discussion of the death traps
that has been going on ever since they
were put in, and Mayor Becker has de
cided, it. is understood, to call a meet
ing of the city council in committee of
the whole next Monday afternoon to
discuss the matter. The Rock Island
road, it is understood, stands ready to
expend $1S,000 or more in getting the

A WEAK STOMACH
NEEDS THE BITTERS AT ONCE
Hoesli Freed. Police . Magistrate

Would Make Room for Tracks. A
plan for the solution of the track re
moval problem1 in Moline has been hit
upon and it is believed that it wi'l
meet with the approval of the railroad
companies as well as the other compa
nies interested. A conference of the
railway officials and the industrial rep
resentatives of the manufacturing com
panies and the industrial and munici
pal organizations of the city will be
held in the near future, when the com
plete details of the plan will be made
public. W. A. Meese was the man to
solve the problem and the committee
which he has been working are of the
opinion that it will meet with approvi
of the railroad companies and govern
ment. There has always been an ob
stacle in moving the tracks to the riv
er front the lack of sufficient land for
the tracks. The river could be filled
in along the tailrace, but this would
interfere with the water power which
operates the great government work
shop. It was suggested that the river
be made deeper but this would have
no effect on the water power. It Is
true that the volume of water would
be the same, but by deepening the cur
rent two feet that much fall would be
eliminated and the power proportion
ately decreased. The plan evolved by
Mr. Meese would remove this obstacle.
He proposes to fill in 100 feet on this
side of the tailrace and cut off the
same amount from the south side of
the government isjand. This would
leave the same volume of water and
would not interfere with the fall in the
river bed. ' '
