TILES' ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRI DA Y,Q JANUARY 25, 1M-9.
A Effort to be Hide to Revive Vpper
Xlllppi Trade and Traffic.
A new steamboat packet line wu
formed in St. Louis Tuesday morning
under the name of the St. Louia, St. Paul
and Minneapolis Packet company, with a
capital Mock of $100,000 cash. The
names of the members in the company
re withheld fur the present for various
reasons, but it Is known that Mr. An
drew Delanj, of St. Paul.in old steam
boatman, will be the manager. The new
company has bongbt out the St. Louis
and St Paul Packet company, consisting
of three side-wheel steamboats, one
wharfboat, twelve warehouses and one
grain elevator at St. Paul. The steam
boats are now in harbor at Hamburg Bay,
up the river. .These will be taken to St.
Louis immediately and completely over
hauled, over 120.000 having been laid
aside for repairs. Painters hve been
called upon to aid on the painting inside
and outside of the boats and wharrboats,
and work in this line will begin in a week
Mr. Drlaney, the active organizer of
the company, whs seen by a Globe-Democrat
reporter . He ssirt: "Our organi
sation is complete, and we have applied
at the state capital for a charter, and filed
our papers in the United States court. It
is formed chiefly of St. Louis business
and moneyed men who, like myself, are
confident we can revive the trkJe of the
Upper Mississippi river. We do not
want to say too much for ourselves, but
propose to do what we say. The
passenger travel between St. Louts
and St. Paul is very large, and,
as you know, Minneapolis is the
largest flour market in the world. We
will endeavor to get the people of Minne
apolis to open the river sufficiently to al
low heavy boats to get there, and we will
then get some of the flour trade, which
will be of great value to St. Louis. The
railroads will not affect us, we believe.
Steamboat rates are ulways below rail
rates and for eiijht months in the year we
can travel and carry without interrups
lion. You will alwuys notice that rail
road rates go down when the river opens
and go up when it closes. We will buy
all our stores and ship our crews in this
city. We propose to build two new side
wheel boats at a cost of $80,000, should
our trade this year demand it. The boats
will be built in St. Louis. Iam aware
the steamboat business has been dormant
for a number of years, hut I can see no
reason why it should remain so any Ion
ger. mere nas been no ennrt to revive
A few years ago the Diamond Jo line
and the packet company just bought
combined for a season, ami did the best
business known in ten years. We intend
to revive a great line of boats, revive the
trade of the Upper MiflftUsippi, open up
new markets for St. Louis good9 and
make this a receiving point for northern
flour, and all we want here is the encour
agement of the St. Louis merchants in
the matter of freights. As for passenger
travel, there are no prettier views in the
world than on the upper river, and
will enjoy a good travel I am sure."

The work of extending the Rock Island
road in New Mexico is progressing rap
idly ai witness the following from the
Leader, of the 21st, published at White
Oaks, New Mexico:
Tbe Rock Island surveying party of six
arrived in town Sunday morning last, in
charge of Maj. Faulkner, locating chief
engineer of the Rock Island system. The
party is composed of experienced men
who expressed themselves as well pleased
with the route from Liberal, Kansas, to
White Oaks. They have run the prelim
inary line twelve or fifteen miles west of
ihe old Ft. Summer road, and will con
tinue on to meet the surveyors from El
Paso, who re now this side of Tularose.
We were informed that last year the Rock
island built 392 miles of road, and are
now placing a large quantity of material
al we end ot the track at Liberal to con
tinue construction at once. Come along;
you cannot get here too soon. The dis

I Life Saving la England.
A century ago there was popular preju
jioe against interfering with the condition of
persons who bad lost consciousness in the
water, and it was to combat this folly that
Dr. Hawes, tbe founder of the Royal Humane
society of England, began to offer rewards to
those who would rescue the bodies of drowned
persons between London and Westminister
bridges, in order that experiments might be
made in resuscitating them.
At first, the project was merely ridiculed.
but as it resulted in bringing to life a large
number of Inanimate persons, public sym
pathy soon turned in that direction. A soci
ety of thirty-two persons was formed, and
still continues to Sourish.
Its work Is every year increasing. During
the last twelve mouths, 533 persons were re
warded for making attempts to save life, and
540 persons were actually rescued from death.
The society ignores all risk of death, except
in cases of drowning, or suffocation from tbe
foul gases of mines, wells or sewers. Al
though lives are every day risked in heroic
deeds of other sorts, it has been found best to
restrict its action to its original scope.
beren kinds of rewtt-ds are offered. The
most common is a testimonial, inscribed on
vellum or parchment. Anion 5 the most dis
tinguished rewards are silver medals, of
which six were last year given, and tbe high
est prize of all is a gold, medal, awarded to
tbe case which shows the' most gallantry far
The lost gold medal was given to a gentle
man who in pitchy (tartness jumped iuto the
river to save a girl who had walked into it by
mistake. The current was running very
rapidly, and lie had the greatest difficulty in
bringing tier to the bank.
it is a curious fact that notwithstanding
the constant increase in England's popula
tion, the number of persons drowned there
shows hardlv any increase durine tbe last
twenty-five years, Youth's Companion.
Electrical Tire Engines.
About the most recent invention for the
application of electricity U Professor Whee
ler's electrical tire engine. It is inteded to be
worked by the current of any of t.'-e over
head electric light wires. The ;rincipal
difference in the invention to th Tdinnry
steam tire engine is that the jkiwo obtained
from a motor instead of the si itn chest.
Each of the new engines will carry a reel
of some 50o feet of insulated tine copper
wires, bound together cable fashin, so as to
equal in strength a No. 3 wire for the trans
mission of the current. As by this method
the engine can be placed anywhere, as tbe
wires overhead can 1 tapped anywhere, the
engine will be placed nearer the fire than
by the old method. The powerful current of
an arc light wire will uot be required, that
of the ordinary incandescent circuit being of
sudlcient potential to run the motor.
The advantages claimed for this new
method are many, in the first place it is
much lighter, and much greater speed can
therefore be attained. Again, owing to the
construction, it can be built for about one
third of the cost of an ordinary steam fire
engine. A very important consideration is
that, like all motors, it starts up immediately
under full speed. It is safer and easier of
control. It is noiseless, and is much more
economical. That this last point is true is
perfectly evideut The expense for fuel for
the present engine in use is considerable.
By tupping tbe wires overhead, fuel is pro
vided gratis. Tbe atxue advantages are
claimed by the Inventor, and many of them
seem important, and, if the cluims can be
substantiated, the iuv.-ntion will aoon be in
universal use. New York Cosnioercial Bul
