THE ARGUS FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 20. 1907."
GARS ABOUT READY
Elm Street Line to Have Modern
Equipmentas Soon as Track
' Work is Finished.
OF THE LATEST STYE
Will Be Done by Oct. 1, But Will Not
Be Put In Service Until Later
Work is Progressing.
As soon as the relaying of the track
on the Kim street line in this citv
and Moline is completed the Tri-eity
Railway company will refurnish tin
line with six new cars similar to thoso
now in use on the Long View line.
The tears have been under construc
tion for some time at the Fifth avenue
car shop and will he finished by Ock.
1, and ready for use at that tint'.
They will not be put into commission,
hov ever, till the track is completely
rehid. When this line is equipped
wit. i the new cars all lines on this
sidi of the river will have modern
Work in Delnyrtl.
At present the work on the El
street line in this city has progressed
as tar as Thirtieth street and Seveut'i
avenue where work has ceased tern
porarily on account of delay in th-?
arrival of material. As soon as this
is received the force will be returned
to vork and relay the line up to F011--teei:th
avenue. The stretch on Fuu--teeuth
avenue which is only three
yea's old, will remain as it is. O.i
the Moliue end of the work the relay
ing has been progressing rapidly and
is completed to n point between Nin h
and Tenth streets. It will be relai 1
in a short time as far as Forty-sixt'i
ttrfet. this city, joining the recentl
laid Ktfetch on Fourteenth avenue.
This" will put the line in first class
condition, with all new track.
Work i Well Dour.
The rails as laid will remain firm
for many years. The ties are beinr
placed about eight feet apart com
pared to every two feet as formerly.
This results in a material saving its
tie expense, and with the use of a con
necting rod between each tie and th-
cement as used, makes a firmer be.l
than in the old way. The rails are of
the SO pound type, equal to the weight
of railroad track, and the joints an
locked securely with unusually long
connecting plates firmly bolted.
On VYHta-h Tower Line.
General Manager Lardner has asked
City Engineer Wallace Treichler for
an estimate of the cost of leveling
the'grade along the Watch Tower line
on Eleventh street between Tenth an I
Eighteenth avenues and desires L.j
start work along the line at an early
date. The company has been asked
to bring its track to the level of the
street and the lowering of the grade
of the fill will be done in connection
with this work.

Caused General Belief That Davenport
Glucose Plant Was Burning to
Ground Last Night.
A startling noise from the direction
of the Glucose works in Davenport
last night led many to believe that
tile entire plant was being destroyed,
for there was a small blaze there. An
air shaft was set afire by spontaneous
combustion, and some one. thinking
the fire might prove disastrous, tied
open one of the steam whistles, and
it blew off steam for about half a i
hour. The fire caused about $200 dam
age. The building is equipped with
an automatic extinguishing system
which makes it practically fire proof,
as far as a blaze of serious propo
tions is concerned.
