CLINTON TRYING TO
Hillsdale, 111., May 17, 1913. Editor
The Argus: Considerable hai been
printed in the papers concerning the
various routes from the tri-cities to
Sterling as a link in the ocean to
ocean official highway, but one point
has been little mentioned that vitally
concerns the tri-cities.
It will have to be admitted that a
direct line drawn through from Chi
cago to Omaha will pass through Ster
ling. 111., and Clinton, Iowa, and if the
tri-cities are to get the tourists trav-l
eling the long distances they will have
to divert them from this direct route
at Sterling and get them started in
a southwesterly course toward the
tri-cities, via Rock river valley route,
the direct short route.
If the tourists keep f,oing straight
west from Sterling until they reach
the Mississippi river and then have
to turn due south 40 miles out of their
course to reach the tri-cities, it is the
belief of many that they will not do
so, but will cross tne Mississippi ai
Clinton, Iowa, the east end of their
bridge being only one and a half to
two miles from a point on the Mis
sissippi scenic highway route, viz:
the Cedar Creek school house corner.
and then proceed on across the state
of Iowa on the transcontinental high
way which is already a good road.
The people of Clinton, Iowa, will
not be slow to construct a good road
or navement lrom tne east ena oi
their bridge to tap the above men
tioned route, and I am informed upon
reliable authority that a man repre
seating the large financial interests
of Clinton attended a meeting at
Gardenplain, 111., in the interest of
the Mississippi scenic route and spoke
at such meeting. It can easily be
understood why the people of Clinton,
Iowa, should favor the Mississippi
scenic route over the Rock river val
