Waive 5-ccnt Fare. The city council
of East Moline met Monday evening in
committee of the whole with represen
tatives of the Moline., Rock Island aad
Eastern Railway company for further
discussion of the matter of a franchise.
The situation was thoroughly gone
over, and in several points chances
were effected in the franchise proposed
by company and city. Two big points
yet remain unsettled, however. Theyj
are the matter of a bonus and the
length of the franchise. It will be te
menibcied that the company's ordi
nance provided for a fifty-year term
and no bonus, while that prepared by
the city called for a bonus of $2'J,o,.-o
and a twenty-year term. The matter
of a 5-ccnt fare to Rock Island which
was included in the city's proposal was
waived, it is understood, and a chango
effected in the company's fare arrange
ment extending somewhat the zone of
a 5-cent fare.
