Monmouth Line Made
ENTERS RICH TERRITORY
Will Serve a Population of 150,000
People Electric Trains Are
Promised J one 22.
Freight service was inaugurated
yesterday on the Rock Island Southern
the new road that form a direct
connecting link between Monmouth
and the three cities when the Initial
run was made over the line. On Doard
the special train a Rock Island South
ern engine and a Burlington passen
ger coach were Ualesburg, Monmouth,
Rock Island, Davenport and Moline
newspaper men, and representative
citizens of Galesburg and Monmouth.
J. W. Walsh, one of tha promoters of
the road, was in charge of the party.
The run was from Monmouth to Rock
Island. A representative of The Argus
made the trip.
On June 22 the passenger sarvice
will be commenced and at that time a
special train will run from the three
cities to Moumouth and tri-city people
will be givan an opportunity of looking
over the road. Bankers, city officials,
newspaper men and representative
citizens, 300 in all. will be invuea 'to
go on the trip. On this occasion, as
yesterday, the people will be guests
of promoters of the road.
Ia Great Piece of Work.
To any one who is not familiar with
railroad work, the achievement of
building the road is .marvelous. Those
who are connected with the work and
those directly responsible for the birth
of the road are aware that it was an
undertaking of no small magnitude.
A faint idea of what has been accom
plished may be gained when it Is
known that 1,500.000 cubic yards of
dirt have been moved in makmg cuts
and fills. Some of the fills are 70 feet
deep. Six hundred thousand feet of
lumber enter into construction of one
bridge. The building of the road was
commenced a year ago last October.
It will be entiraly completed and
equipped for electric cars before fall.
Bridge fonts SIRO.OOO.
The first stop was made at Cedar
bridge is of steel construction ana is
the only steel bridge on the system.
It is 600 feet long and towers 70 feet
above Cedar creek. The bridge cost
$50,000 and is a fine piece of engineer
Two other bridges which called
forth exclamations of surprise were
the main Henderson and the Pope
Creek' bridges. Main' Henderson
bridge is 2.800 feet long and is 35 feet
high. All but 1.200 feet of h will be
filled, and it will require 90,000 cubic
yards of dirt to make the fill. Pope
creek bridge is 915 feet long and SM
feet above the water, the highest
bridge on the system. This is tne
bridge in which 600,000 feet of timber
was used in K3 construction. air.
Walsh announced that eventually this
bridge would be rebuilt and that all
but 200 feet would be of steel con
struction. Other bridges or lesser im
portance are: .

New Equipment Coming.
Mr. Walsh returned Sunday after
noon from Pittsburg and he says that
the new coaches will be here before
the excursion is run from the three
cities. The road will be nearly ail
ballasted before -that date. Trolley
poles have been set for a distance of
33 miles out of Rock Island and 23
miles of poles are equipped with cross
arms. The bridges have been so con
structed that cars may cross them with
safety, traveling at a rate of 60 miles
The building of the road is the real
ization of a dream that railroad men
have had for the last 30 years. The
route has been surveyed on many oc
casions, but no one ever had the nerve
to tackle the project. The Walshes
finally became interested and they
took hold of the proposition with a vim
that crowned their efforts with suc
cess. The seemingly insurmountable
problems have been solved, and it will
not be long before passenger trains
will be humming over tne line.
The drainage through the territory
which the road has been built is to.
ward the Mississippi river, which ac
counts for the enormous cuts and fills
that have been necessary. As the line
does not vary 10 rods to the east or
west in a tan?et from Monmouth to
Rock Island those hills ana ravines
re crossed at right angles.
But with solving of engineering
! problems there is a satisfaction in
knowing that the road penertates a
rich community. On either side ot the
line rich farms are found, and in many
localities are producing coal mine3.
THE SINGER AND HIS SONG.
Of what avail to sing of death?
None but the dead will hear.
Of what avail to sing of Life?
The living lend no ear.
Of what avail to sing of Love?
Only the jealous care.
Of what avail to sing of Hate?
Love will not turn a hair.
Of what avail io sing of Truth?
Truth from old age is cold.
Of what avail to sing of Faith?
Do beggars scatter gold?
Of what avail to sing at all?
The nightingale replies:
"I sing to cheer the heavy heart,
And hold the light that flies!"
