THE ARGUS, FRIDAY; - OCTOBER 25. 1907
ON FASTER TIME
Elm Street Line to be Operated
''with One Car Less Begin
ning First of Month.
HAS LITTLE EFFECT HERE
Change Applies Mainly to Moline End
of Line Reconstruction Work to .
K Be Completed. '
(General Manager J. F. Lardner of
tie Trj-city Railway company this
- morning announced that beginning Hio
first of next' month' the schedule on
the Elm street line will be made fas-
' tier, andi one car will be taken off. Tho
same time, a 15 minute schedule, is t.j
'be maintained with five cars instead
of. six now used to handle the traffic.
The difference in time will be madj
entirely on the Moline end of the line,
however, the schedule remaining as i
is now in Rock Island between th
Thirty-fifth street switch on Fou
teenth avenue, and the west end te
rii'inal at Fifth street. One passing
point In Moline has been eliminated
in the rebuilding of- the line, but Vl
of the switches in Rock Island will re
main as they, have been. i
Work On the Hill.
. - The reconstruction work, Mr. Lan:
ner states, will be finished on the'Elm
street line this winter. He states .that
the construction department has been
directed to reconstruct the Elm street
line from Seventh to Fourteenth ave
; line on Thirtieth street, to compute
the track work of the entire line, an !
' has given assurance that this stretcii
will be rebuilt before snow , flies. Tlu
work in Moline is now practically fin
i i9hed, and it is probable that the men
' will begin work at once on the Thi--tleth
street hill. The construction de
partment, however, is desirous of dis
posing of certain odd bits of repair?
in the downtown territory in Rock i
! land . before the- El hi fctivet work is'
commenced, and it I possible that tie
mucn neeaea rebuilding of the hill
track will be delayed.
However, whether the hill track is
rebuilt or not. the new schedule is to
go into effect the, first Tf the month.
ine proposed change Is' causing raucn
comment among patrons of the line,
and many of them predict-that the re
Suits of the change will be unsatisfac
tory from the passengers' point" of
view. It is argued that the traffic wi'l
be heavier when the line is. put in goo'l
shape, and made more satisfactory by
reason or the operation of the new
type of cars, and that as a result ev i
the new cars, though larger than the
old ones, will be insufficient to accom
modate the traffic, if one car is taken
The operation of six cars, on a 10
or 12 minute basis, it is stated, woull
prove a material benefit to the public
while the proposed change will likely
make the seryice no more satisfactory
at -least in- Rock, Island, than it was be
fore, and possibly- give even less ac
commodation than before.
' From the standpoint of equipment
the company is not much nearer meet
ing the demands of the patrons on eith
er the Elm street or Long View lin?
now than it w'as a year ago. While new
cars have been provided scarcely p
day passes that one or more of the old
rattletrap? does not-make its appear
ance and it Is just as apt to catch the
busy hours as the better type of
cars. Some of .the old , cars that
are running daily on both the
Elm street and Long. . View line
are so disgraceful in appearance insid?
stfid out that the company ought to
feel too much ashamed of them to send
them out. but as long as there are any
of them around the equipment depa-t-ment
will : no doubt manage to keep
them In view. If there Is one thin?,
the equipment end of the Tri-eitv
Railway company is emphatically op
posed to it is uniformity.

Mr. Raines argued that the passive
