Southern stated In an Interview' with
a representative of The Argus this
morning that a month of suitable
weather "would see the road completed
so that trains can be run' from this
city to Monmouth, the other terminus.
There remains only six miles of rail
to be laid, this being a gap about
three miles this side of Monmouth
over Cedar creek. The Immense Cedar
creek steel bridge is to be completed
this week and as all the grading along
the line has been done there will be
only the ballasting left to do in order
to start a schedule of trains. : The
first trains will be run by steam, but
the electrification of the road Is going
on rapidly and if the. cold weather con
tinues electric trains will be running
almost as soon as the road is com
pleted. The power house at the Ed
wards river with its 2,500 kilowatts
steam turbines has been almost fin
ished at a cost of $200,000.
The options on the right of way of
the road for the branch line to Aledo
have all been accepted and by . June

trains to Aledo. ' ' " ' ' '

The company Is considerably wor

going to get its passenger trains into

from Preemption over the Rock Island
road's Cable branch, but. the electrifi
cation has to end at First street and
Fourth avenue. The stock cars and
freight cars of the Southern can con
tinue Into the city over the Rock Isl
and road, but the electric coaches have
to find some other way to get in. The
tracks of the Tri-City Railway com
pany cannot be utilized as the huge
electric coaches which the Southern
will use would be unable to turn the
corners around which the city tracks
go. In addition to this they are so
wide that two of them could not pass
on the double tracks of the city rail
way. The Rock Island Southern pas
senger coaches will be 05 feet long,
which is almost double the size of the
street cars. The company is hop'ing

CRUSHED TO DEATH BY CAR
Henry Dadelow, Muscatine. Meets
Tragic Fate While at His Work.
Henry Dadelow, employed by the
Roach & Musser Sash and Door works
at Muscatine, met instant death Satur
day by being crushed between a brick
wall and a car. Dadelow was engaged
in piling lumber in a dry kiln and a
car of lumber stood on the incline
track which runs Into the kiln. The
block which sustained the loaded car
were removed in order to allow its
passage into the kiln, Dadelow being
timely cautioned to step aside. He
apparently did not realize the danger
of his position, however, and was slow
in getting out of the way, the box car
catching his clothing and crushing out
his life when it struck a brick wall in
the kiln. Several of his ribs were
broken and he was otherwise inter
nally injured from which he died al
most instantly. Dadelow was 55 years
of age and is survived by his widow
and a daughter.
