Postmaster H. A. J. McDonald has
just received word from the office of
the first assistant postmaster general
that the llock Island postoffice is to he
Jlowed two additional carriers. The
force is to be increased Oct. 15, in ac

department headquarters. Postmaster
McDonald will apixnnt Lucius lige and

Mnkt-N Total of IS.
The additions to the carrier force
give the Rock Island office a total of
IS carriers. The increase was granted
in order to give a more adequate serv
ice in the business district, and also to
give two deliveries a day, where pos

one delivery is made at present. The
increase in the size of the carrier force

The addition to the force, however
has given Postmaster McDonald a
troublesome problem to solve, that of
finding room for the necessary distribu
ting cases for the new carriers. The
office is already greatly overcrowded
and where to put the two new racks is
a difficult question.
The postoffice has for some time
been greatly hampered because of in
adequate floor space and insufficient
room. The matter has been taken up
with the authorities of the postoffice
and treasury departments and with
Congressman McKinney, and an effort
is being made to secure additiotial room
by enlarging the present building or
erecting a new structure. Plans along
this line have not as yet reached a

The McKinley syndicate has a net
work of interurban lines already oper

and some time ago organized another
company to construct a line between
Rock Island and Peoria, for which the

important cities of the southern part
of the state, as well as St. Louis, by
