the turning of west bound Fourth ave
nue cars at Twentieth street west on
Third avenue to Fifteenth street,
lience north to Second avenue and
bark east. The Third avenue cars
wculd proceed exactly vice versa, that
is. over the same route on Second
avenue to Fifteenth street, then south
to Third avenue and east to Twenti
eth street to Moline.
This plan would convert the down
town lines of the Third and Fourth
axenue lines into stubs which would
loop around Seventeenth and Twen-
tieth streets and Second and Tnird j
a enties. There are to be through cars
morning and evenings. It is in the
cutting out of the through cars that
the chief objections to the proposi-

XEW WAITING STATION.
The plan calls for the erection of a
waiting station on Market square,
which would be utilized aa a term.uai
ana transfer point. Mr. Hart cailed
attonricn to -he fact that out cf town
people coming from points e-ist to
llork Island are notified both at Twen-!
ty-fourtli street and at Twentieth
H'reet. and Third avenue to change for
Uavenport, without ever reaching ihe
business center of the ciy. The Earn--rule
applies as to out of tosn puop-a

will walk about the city and find the;

without going to Davenport. Those de-
siring o cross the bridge can get their
car at the terminal just the same. i
If the plan is agreed upon it will
necesfrltate considerable construction
work on the part of the Tri-City Rail

Mr. Hart's plan calls for not only '
th. building of a terminal in place of!
the Market square pavilion, but the an- .
pointnient of a station man whose du
'y shall be to call the approach and '
destination of all cars. This plan ha j lepialature voted today for senator,

It is pointed out that by the instal

there w ill be presented a greater op

were heartily In favor of the plan, as

' rs. and it is believed that the Tri
City railway officials will approve of
ti.e advantages which it offers.

avenue, immediately after the pave-
ment of Third avenue. - 1
The motion was seconded, after ;
which Commissioner Reyno'.ds moved ,
as an amendment that "he resolution ;

(Written for The Argus.)
In 1SS3, when Paul Vander Voort was
commander-in-chief of the Grand Armv
I of the Republic, and the encampment
I was held in Denver, the Woman's Re
lief Corps was organized and accepted
as tie auxiliary of the Grand Army of
the Republic, and left free to work as
suited it. Since then the order has
grown to magnificent proportions. The !f
local branch, the John Buford Woman's
Relief Corps No. 66, w as organized :
Feb. 12, 1887. ' j
The work of the Woman's Relief i
Corps is to give comfort and assist,-;
ance to the veterans of the Civil war,
and also their needy or dependent :
ones, to find them homes and employ-;

and friends, to maintain true allegiance i
to their country, to inculcate lessons !

aid and assist the Grand Army of the
Republic, and to perpetuate the mem- j
ory of their heroic dead. j
In May, 1911, the John Buford Wo
man's Relief Corps Xo. 66 of Rock Is
land undertook to erect a monument '
on the soldiers' lot in Chippiannock i
cemetery, and in September of the
same year formed an organization of
the different patriotic orders, to be
known as the Rock Island Monumental
association, to raise the money neces
sary to accomplish the work. It is tjje
wish of the association to erect a $5,000
monument as a fitting tribute to the
men who responded to their country's
call by deeds bravely done, to at last ;
bring about a time of peace, through I
which march the remnant of a mighty j
host to the silent resting place of their j
comrades. This work, welf done, will
