Rock Island will shortly be called
upon by the Buffalo Prairie interurban
committee to learn what can be secur
ed in the way of a right of way and
financial encouragement for the road
between here and Keithsburg that is
being promoted. It is well understood
that it is not only an interurban they
are planning, but an entrance to the
city for one of the big trunk lines.
That they mean business and have ev
ery assurance of financial support if
the desired concessions are secured
there is little doubt.
The committee, which was originally
appointed at a meeting at Buffalo Prai
rie to take full charge of the survey,
met in Rock Island this morning, the
main object being to go over the map
of the route surveyed by City Engineer
Wallace Treichler, and to decide upon
the entrance into the city. Mr. Treich
ler has practically completed his work
in this county.
Come Moat Direct Way.
It was decided to come into the city
from the southwest, the line leaving
the bluffs three miles east of the vil
lage of Andalusia and running nearly
parallel to the Mississippi river, from
there in, crossing Rock river near the
The route chosen is further evidence
that the road is not purely an interur
ban, for a trolley line would probably
head for Milan, making a more cir
cuitous route, but one through a better
territory for business. A line up the
Mississippi through the bottoms of
Rock river would secure no traffic for
seven or eight miles, and it is not like
ly an interurban company would favor
it. However, it would be three miles
shorter than a line through Milan, and
therefore would be favored by the
builders of a steam road.
Rock Island should be prepared to
give the project every encouragement,
for if it is carried out and brings in
.a new steam road it will mean a so
lution of the competitive track ques
tion for the factory district in the
west end of the city.
VANITY OF WEALTH.
He has fifty million dollars more than
that, some people say;
I could live a year in comfort on hi3
income for a day;
He has half a dozen autos and a yacht
and private car;
He has servants who are richer than
the greatest scholars are,
But his wife is oft the subject of rude
jests among her "friends,"
And he has the kind of fingers that are
blunted at the ends.
He can travel where he pleases, he can
come and go at will;
He can leave his work to others, and
his profits pile up still;
There are none to give him orders,
none to bid him go or stay;
When the monthly bills are brought
him they produce no new dismay;
But he has a cherished daughter living
under alien skies,
Where her titled husband beats her for
the sake of exercise.
He has fifty million dollars fully that
and maybe more;
When he bathes a servant rubs him;
there's a footman at his door;
But his wife will seldom suffer him to
pass beyond her sight,
And he often tosses wildly when he
ought to sleep at night;
He can purchase lards and castles; he
can travel east or west,
But he can't induce contentment to re
side within his vest.
