One of the Important features of thi
Rock Island pension system .that differs
from. that of all other roads is the fix
ing of a maximum amount. This com
pany will not give a pension to exceed
$150 a month to any officer or employe
This is the only road that has fixed
I a maximum pension. On all the other
I lines there is no top or limit to the
! amount a retired officer or other em
! ploye may receive. In some instances
J on other lines pensions of as high as
j$500 and in one instance $1,000 a
j month has been given retired officers,
I the amount beirg based on their
Sl.'O In the Limit.
The Rock Islalid company has do
; cided that regardless of the amount
i an officer might have received or tho
i prominence of bis position, $150 a
; month will be the limit. This is on
'the theory that those earning or re
t reiving unusually high salaries have
i been in positions to have made a pen
: sion unnecessary.
This company is also to give the
j highest minimum pension, $20 per
I month. The Pennsylvania has fixed a
i$10 minimum, and the Northwestern
I recently decided to make $12 the low
i est amount paid a retired employe.
The Illinois Central pension is based
: on a standard that practically insures
a good minimum.
! Brotherhoods Are Active.
i There is considerable complaining
! among employes who have been re-
! tired under the pensions of the various
i roads over the low amounts given
i them. The different brotherhoods and
organizations of employes of the Penn.
j sylvania railroad are now circulating
! petitions asking that the men give 60
I cents a month out of their wages, to
go into a separate fund to be added
to the pension. The employes figure
that from this fund every man retired
could receive $25 a month added to
the amount given as a pension. While
the men are not fighting pension sys
tems, there is considerable dissatis
faction over the low amounts given
on retirement, and it was in answer
to these protests that the minimum
had been fixed. The' men say these
minimums are too low, as the pension
er is usually too old to do other work
and that in few cases will anything
under $50 per month mean much in
the way of general support.

Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 25. Three
persons were killed and three were
badly injured yesterday afternoon
when a motor car owned and driven
by John Mahoney, a contractor, of
Kansas City, Kan., became unmanagea

Driving Own Car.
Mr. Mahoney was driving his car
around a curve on Cliff drive, one of
the most popular automobile boule
vards of the city, when he momentar
ily lost control. The car skidded bad

DE WOLF HOPPER CANCELS.
DeWolf Hopper, who was seen re
cently at the Illinois In "A Matinee
Idol," has cancelled all his engage-.
ments In this vicinity by reason of
the death of his mother. The first can
cellation occurred at Clinton Saturday
night, where a capacity house was
awaiting the favorite comedian.
It cost the Rock Island Southern
$3,350 to get tho last bit of right of
way for the proposed stub line from
Gilchrist to Aledo, the jury in the
condemnation proceedings finding that
to be a fair price in their judgment
for the Butler place. The case came
to a close Saturday afternoon, and
after the final Instructions had been
given the jury they retired and aftr
an hour's review of the case came
back with the verdict.
Now that the right of way for the
Aledo line is secured and a definite
understanding har, been reached be
tween the road and the citizens of
Aledo, on the amount of assistance
which that city is to give the road In
b Uding the line, it Is expected that
c struction work will .be started on
' i line as soon as spring opens up.
e country over which this line will
pass is not so rough C .t traversed
f"hv the north and south xe of the
R. I. S., and hence there will .ot be
so many problems for the engineers
nor so much expense incurred in build
ing the line.
Open Soon After Main LJne.
Owing to these conditions it is ex
pected that the work of building the
short road will not take very long,
and that the stub will be ready for op
eration about as soon as the main line
is opened for traffic between this city
and Monmouth. The equipment for
this bit of road will be similar to that
of the main line, and a service that
will easily take care of all the traffic,
both freight and passenger, has been
promised by the officials of the road.
