VIEW OF LINE
Representative of Roberts & Abbot
Company Discusses Project of
Mrs. Alice Moore
AT MEETING AT HARPER
All the news all (he time The Argua.
Possibilities of Interurban Between
Rock Jsland and Peoria Reviewed
Report is Favorable.
v At a meeting at the Harper house
this afternoon the interurban proposi
tion which Mrs. Alice M. Moore is
promoting, for a line between Rock Is
land and Peoria, was taken up again,
and Mr. Roberts of the Roberts tc Ab
bot company of Cleveland, Ohio, was
present and discussed the engineering
phases of the project. When the mat
ter was last taken up at a meeting of
business men, Mrs. Moore was asked
to arrange a meeting with , the engi
neers, and accordingly the gathering
of this afternoon was held.
' - ;.A We to Judj;e. :
Mr. Roberts was enthusiastic in his
reports of the possibilities of the pro
posed line. The"flrm which he repre
sents has won for itself a name along
all lines, of engineering work. It has
been -connected with the building of
some 150 electric railways and about
350 . electric light and ' heat plants.
They have done work in many states
from Pennsylvania to Texas and they
have come to be considered an auth
ority on the subject of the feasibility
of electric roads. The opinion of the
Crm if favorable to a road has proved
of considerable value in aiding in the
sale of its bonds.
The Propoed Ilne.
The proposed Rock Island and Peo
ria electric interurban will run in the
same general line as the Peoria branch
of the Rock Island road. It is under
stood that the power plant will be lo
cated at Galva in return for certain
concessions granted by that city.
Andover is considerably interested in
the proposed project and several rep
resentatives from that place were at
the meeting this afternoon.
The promoters of the road expect to
secure free access to both this city and
Peoria in return for making these the
terminal points and besides this it is
likely that the business men of both
cities will be asked to buy a share of
Sinrverera at Work.
There are a number of surveyors in
the city , who have been' at work for
some time in the railroads yards and
along the river in the west end of the
city and It is generally believed that
they are working either in the inter
est of the proposed line to Peoria or for
the Rock Island Southern which will
soon be in a position to run cars out
toi the coal 'beds near the Edwards
river. - . ' "

were George. D. Palmer, A. J. Nord

PRIEST PREY OF THIEVES?
Father John Reported Robbed and
Signature Forged by Abbess.
St. Petersburg, Jan. 5. The body of
Father John of , Cronstadt, who died
two days ago, was transported through
the streets of the capital yesterday af
ternoon to the Monastery of St, John,
where it will be interred today. The
event was marked with scenes of relig
ious devotion approaching mania. A
number of stories are circulating con
cerning the incidents surrounding
Father John's death at Cronstadt. It
is reported that large sums of money
disappeared from his house 'during his
closing hours, and that at the very end
an jibbess held the unconscious priest's
band and traced his signature on a
will bequeathing his property to her
institution. After his death a ereat
part ofthe money contributed by his
followers throughout . Russia and a
large collection of unset gems were
scattered ! aimlessly y throughput the
rooms of. his residence. - " m
