the securing of the right of way for
V the proposed belt railroad is meeting
at tho Rock Island club this after
' noon to select incorporators and
trustees, 1 tf of the former and five
of the latter, with a view to for-
nially launching the enterprise. Suf
. ficient progress Tiad been made with
the preliminaries to warrant periect
ing of the holding corporation.
Resistance to the building of an
adit ional track on First avenue has
been based chiefly on the suspicion
that private" interests are behind fhe
belt and that wheii it is completed it
will be turned over to the control of
some individual railroad corporation.
Nothing could bo mere remote from
the ical facts. The committee has
succeeded in convincing the majority
of the owners, but there are still a
lew remaining to be converted-''

The Argus is fully conversant'. with
the conditions under which the read

to fully explain them to its. readers

The belt primarily is to get compel
itive transportation lirfes to th'& west
end factory distri-ct. v Secondly, it
will be available to al interurban
and steam railroads that may in years
to come desire entrance to. the city.
The belt will connect at Seventeenth
street with . the Burlington, Mil
waukee and Davenport, Bock Island
& Northwestern, and those roads
then will be in position to operate
' t.heiv trains to the "western limits of
the city, on payment of a rental
charge to -the belt company. First
avenue will be followed to a point in
the vicinity of Mill street, and thence
it will continue to Eighteenth ave
nue. s Have KnmlM to liny Way.
Money wHl be taken from the
booster fund to buy right of way and
begin the building of the road. It
will be hekj.fh perpetuity by a board
of trustee's, none pf whom is to re
ceive ;ay for his services. All profits
less operating and maintenance ex

and streets fund of the city of Rock
It s a pro4ect for the upbuilding of
the city. It will benefit ail alike. All
ohould be for it and work for it.
