Southern Urged to Choose One
of Avenues as Entrance to
MERCHANTS IN A MOVE
Freight Ooold Be Carried Between
Hour of Midnight and 0 in
Ways and means of bringing the
Rock Island Southern road into the
city so that the terminal would be
nearer the business districts were dis
cussed by the Rock Island Business
Men's association last night. The mat
ter of routes from the west end to the
heart of the city was considered. It
was the sense of the meeting that the
Southern come into the business dis
trict via Fifth or Sixth avenue to Sev
enteenth street and then north on that
thoroughfare to First avenue.
The matter of handling freight dur
ing the day time met with disapproval
of the business men, and so the hours
from midnight to 6 o'clock in the morn
ing were suggested. Mr. Fearons, who
represented the road, stated that that
arrangement would be favored by the
company. No definite action was tak
en by the meeting. President M. H.
Sexton suggested that there be a joint
meeting of the business men's associa
tion, Rock Island club, Rock Island
commission. Belt line trustees, Rock
Island Southern officials and the Indus
trial commission for the purpose of
considering the matter and bringing it
to a head. As Mr. Sexton is president
of the business men a:.d the Industrial
commission, he will probably call the
meeting of these committees within the
SHERRARD WAXTS A STIB.
Sherrard sent a representative dele
gation to the meeting for the purpose
of enlisting the aid of the association i
for the building of a stub from Pre
emption to Sherrard by the Rock Is
land Southern. The delegation includ
ed C. A. Clarke, El G. Daniclson, James
McWright, E. E. Simcox, C. A. Sam
uelson, Ed Bergreen, J. C. Schuessler,
Will earners, George M. Bell and Fred
Setterdahl. Mr. Bell, who is mayor
of Sherrard, was the principal speaker
for the delegation. He stated that at
present his town has no good connec
tions with Rock Island, where the
greater part of trading of the 960 resi
dents of Sherrard Is carried on. The
Rock Island road of course has a train
running to and from Sherrard, but the
accommodations are anything but de
sirable. Mayor Bell stated that it

BUSINESS MEN DISAPPROVE
ILLINOIS THEATRE CHANGE
At the meeting of the Rock Island Business Men's
association last night the proposed changing of the pol
icy of the Illinois theatre from a legitimate to a vaude
ville playhouse was discussed. The sentiment of all
present was in disapproval of the plan, and a resolution
to that effect, offered by F. T. Myers, was adopted by
unanimous vote. President M. H. Sexton was instruct
ed to name a committee of three members to call upon
the officers of the Illinois Theatre company, owner of
the property, in an effort to defeat the announced pur
pose. Business men who expressed their views last
night took the position that public contributions of money
made possible the erection of the Illinois theatre; that
it was provided in order to assure a permanent home
for standard attractions in Bock Island, the city for
several years previous having been denied the better
grade of theatrical amusements and to alter the policy
of the house at this time would be nothing short of a be
trayal of a public trust.
would be necessary to secure permis
sion from the Rock Island by the South
ern to use Its stub track, which is a
little more than five miles long, to
connect Sherrard with Rock Island,
meeting the main line of the Southern
at Preemption. This stub might be
electrified or steam cars might be
used. He stated that the mines of
Sherrard were in full swing and that
the output was large. The present
shaft was good for the next 10 years,
and when It is exhausted there are
coal fields to the north which have not
been touched. The mines employ 300
men. Aside from the mines, Sherrard
and vicinity is rich in agriculture and
the fertile fields will afford great quan
tities of produce.
LEADS ITS NEIGHBORS.
Mayor Bell is authority for the state
ment that more money is paid out in
wages in Sherrard than in all other
towns along the Southern between
Rodk Island and Monmouth, with the
possible exception of Aledo. The great
er part of the money is spent in Rock
; Island Othpr Khprrarrl sneakers were
Mes;Brs. Clarke, SetterdaM and Samuel-
son. Mr. Fearons, representative of
the Southern, stated that as long as
there was a possibility of revenue, the
road was ready to make any extension.
He stated that the company which he
represented is friendly as long as the
proper spirit is showji.
In order properly to bring the matter
before the association, E. B. Kreis pre
sented a motion favoring local co
operation in. devising ways of perfect
ing the stub line. Another motion was
then presented authorizing President
M. H. Sexton to appoint a committee
of five which shall act with a like com
mittee from Sherrard to confer with
the Southern officials.
REPORT OX WORKHOUSE.
S. R. Wright, supervisor for Rock
Island township, sent to the associa
tion for consideration his report in re
gard to the workhouse proposition and
the feasibility of providing such an in
stitution in the county. He included
in his communication a report of his
visit with other board members and
J city commissioners to Peoria. He set
I forth the advantages which may be de
l rived by the establishment of a work
I house. President Sexton was instruct-
ed to appoint a committee of three to
j Investigate the proposition and report
I Members of the executive committee
jof the Druggists association, which is
, in charge of arrangements for the state
meeting of the Illinois Pharmaceutical
j association here in June, were present
j to solicit the cooperation of the asso
j elation in securing rooms in private
i homes for the visiting delegates. The
president was instructed to name a
committee of three to work in con
junction with the druggists' commit
tee in securing adequate accommoda
tions. MOOSE FA I It I:DOHSbU.
B. F. Schriver, dictator of the local
lodge of the Loyal Order of Moose, and
E. J. Tobin. who is in charge of the ar-
; rangemnts for the Moose street fair
which is to be held June 5 to 10, ad
j dressed the meeting for the purpose of
j securing the endorsrment of the asso
ciation of the proiect. Mr. Tobin ex
plained the plans ard objects of the en
tire proposition. The association en
IVesi lent Sexton presented the mat
ter of securing for this city the head
; cfioes of labor organizations which are
r.ow located in Indianapolis. There Is
, a well defined move on the part of the
; lalxir bodies to transfer their head
quarters from Indiana because of the
alleged illegal procedure in the re
; moval of J. J. McXamara. secretary of
' the International Bridge & Structural
I Iron Workers" association, to Califor
jria and the seizure cf records of the
organization. Rock Island is now head
qdarrcrs for one of the largest labor or
ganizations In the west, that of the

tiers, which will be sent to the labor!

probable cost of a road.
IS ROUGH COUNTRY.
The country through which it is
proposed to run the line is rather
rough, crossing the Edwards river
and a number of creeks flowing into

tee promoting the scheme believe
they will be able to furnish the right
of way to the company free of cost
