To Handle Entire Traffic for
Streckfus Steamboat Line
CHOICE A POPULAR ONE
Carnival City Company Announce
Schedule Which Is to Begin
That the steamboat business has In
creased within the last few years is
evidenced by the fact that the Street
fus Steamboat Line company, succes
sors to the Diamond Jo Une, has in
creased the force which will handl
the passenger and freight traffic and
excursions in the tri-cities. As was
stated in last night's Argus, Captain
D. W. "Wisherd, traffic manager of the
company, was here for the purpose of
selecting an agent to oversee the
business of the company In the tri
cities. Ills selection was made public
this morning when he announced that
Carl J. Mangan of Davenport will be
the general agent for the company In
Mr. Mangan needs no Introduction
to the people of Rock Island, for dur
ing the last seven years he has acted
in the capacity of local agent for the
Acme Packet and Carnival City Pack
et lines, and during that period has
through his efforts gained a host of
friends here who will be glad to learn
of his new appointment. Under him
will be two agents, or assistants, one
of whom will be in Rock Island and
the other in Davenport. He enters
upon his ofiBcial duties at once. As
yet he has not been relieved as agent
for the Carnival City packet line, but
as soon as a man can be secured to
fill his place, he will sever his con
nection with that concern and devote
his entire time to the new agency.
He will have charge of all the passen
ger, freight and excursion business in
the tri-cities. Whether he will main
tain his office in this city or Daven
port has not been decided, but if the
company erects a new warehouse in
this city, he will probably be station
r.tKMAL CITV SKASOV.
The Carnival City Packet company
is now making final preparations for
the opening of the season next Mon
day. The steamers Wenona and Keo
kuk were brought up from the Daven
port harbor this morning and docked
at the Davenport levee. The boilers
of the steamers are being overhauled.
The steamer Black Hawk wilj be the
first to leave the tri-cities, sailing
from the local port next Monday after
noon at 4 o'clock for Burlington. It
will maintain trl-weekly service be
tween Burlington and Quincy. The
Helen Blair will leave here next Wed
nesday afternoon at 4 o'clock for Bur
lington and will maintain tri-weekly
service between Burlington and the
tri-cities. Later the Keokuk will be
added to the line and will run between
Keokuk and Quincy, and the Black
Hawk run will then' be from Burling
ton to Keokuk. The service is so ar
ranged that connections will be made
at the various steamer terminals, con
necting the tri-cities and Quincy.
The management of the company
has not yet announced the schedule
of the Wencna and Columbia, the two
other boats in the fleet. It is probable
that they will be used in the excursion
business. Beside the boats of the two
companies, the Morning Star, the big
sidewheeler which is the property of
of the Northern Steamboat company,
will handle passenger and freight traf
fic from the local port, running to St.
Paul. Leaving here May 4, it takes
an excursion to New Orleans, return
ing in about 40 days, and then to en
ter the packet trade.
EI.EVEX BOATS IV SEItVICE.
It will be seen by this that the local
waters will be well provided with
means of transportation, 11 boats in
all to handle the excursion and packet
business. If the -stage of the water re
mains as high as It is at present, there
will be little or no difficulty in naviga
tion and the season will be a success
ful one. Last year for the greater part
of the season but two boats could be
run with success.
