Messrs. Guyer snd McCslie laid before t ie
committee their desire to get into lti k
Inland from the road's present W-rmio is
atFeirmounl Park, east of South Patk,
by a route that would be remunerative to
tbe company. The different routes.rr.
posed were discussed snd members of the
committee also made remarks favorable to
the project of encoursging the road in its
endeavors to reach tbe business hesrt of
tbe riiy. The following resolution was
Onslly adopted eipit-ssire of the comrrit
tec's sentiment, snd President 1 1 ass I as
called a meeting of the association " or
next Monday evening:
"Wherbas, The building of the 5 o
linc Central street rsilwsy into our city
would prove of great benefit to the busi
ness interests of our city, and :he proj ict
is one which should meet with whate rer
encourxgement can be given it bv he
Citizens' Improvement association, there
fort- he it
Jiesvleett, That the president of tliU
association be requested to call a special
meeting of thcassociation to consider t."
The committee further resolved to in
struct the directors of the company to
present all its desired routes to the asso
ciation at its special meetiog, that t iat
body may decide upon one as sufficiently
feasible to give it the weight ef its en
dorscment, when the application is mide
to the city council for right of way p-iv-ilegrs.
Tbe enterprise is a deserving one in it
reaches a new and rapidlv-erowinc; set
tlement on tbe southeast bluffs and to
ward Moline tbat will by this mrnns be
brought into quick and direct communi
cation with the busiuess cenU-r of the
rit v- Viewed from this standpoint, the
association's endowment, while eminently
proper, is not necessary, however, hit
the project my receive fair treatment at
ihe handrt of the Rock Island round, if
the privileges sought for are not unless-
onahle and inconsistent. The pnscnt
municipal body of Rock Island bat- not
iled in a single instance to evinc i its
disposition to encourage all desering
public enterprises, and as far as tbe Ainu
is able to judge of its ruling spirit, it lie
lieves that every project which it can aid
will receive its hearty cooperation.
Kut the question of route is to In an
important one in the minds of the r un
til, if it ia to be ju.lged by its past ac ion.
The Moline Electric company has set-era!
route under contemplation, one of which
t will seek. One, and the most p pu-
lar one with the Improvement assorii.tion
at least, is from First avenue and I i'li
teenth street south on Eighteenth Creel
to Seventh avenue east to Twenly-bflb
street, south to Ninth avenue and tt enre
by the west ravine to Thirteenth avenue.
then east across tbe ravine by metnsof
n iron bridge which it is the actieme
to build in part by the company and in
part by special assessment to Tl irty-
iirst street, south to Fourteenth ave-
e and east to the present teniinus
of the electric road at Fairmouot park.
No objection whatever has been hesrd to
this route and it seems to meet wilt gen
eral f ivor on all sides. It would certain
ly be in the nature of a benefit to tbe
city snd it is believed tbe council would
so view it. Tbe company also has in its
mind another route which is down E!m
after tapping Fairmount park teniinus,
to E ghlh-and-a-half avenue snd 'hence
through Rodman's and Gregg's adi.itions
to Twenty-fourth, thence north to Sev
enth avenue, west to Twenty-third, north
to Fifth avenue and west to Eigb eentb
and north to First, or, west to Wes: Sev
enteenth and uorlh to Second a -enue.
Some variations from both these routes
are also under discussion. But thnre is
still another route under considers ti n .and
it is believed o be the one tbat tbt Elec
tric i (npany Uings to with the g-eatest
houe.w notwithstanding that the council
has expressed its emphatic and righteous
disapproval of. and would again, doubt
less. Tbat is, to enter tbe business por
tion of the city from Seventh avecue. via
either Twenty-third or Twenty fourth
street to Second avenue, and tvest to
West Seventeenth street. It would not be
the part of wisdom, policy or faiiness to
grant such a franchise, and it it a safe
assertion tbat the company will not place
itself in a favorable attitude before the
present or any other council by seeking
it. A few months ago the city fathers
refused to grant such a right ol way to
the Electric company, and they -eceived
the endorsement of tbe public f r so do
ing. The Akuus does not believi in mo
nopolies, or in entirely exclus ve fran
chises, but it does hold tbat where a cor
poration shows a spirit of enter
prise and of consideration for public in
terests, and aids public improvements
such as the Holmes people have in
what has been done on Second avenue,
they are entitled to the same protection
tbat the electric people would rijhtly ex
pect if they bad a right f way Into Rock
Island and bad provided the best ef vacu
ities that could be asked for. It would
not be just to gTant another con pany the
right to use Mr. Holmes' tracks, and the
city would openly involve itself in what
might prove years of litigation if it acted
in a manner that would permit mch tres
passing. Competition is the lite of business, as
has been truly said, but direct a id wholly
uncalled for antagonism is not t ie part of
legitimate compelilion.and it Is not to be
auDuosed that the Rock Island counci.
weuld tolerate it. So tbat if the Im
provement association wishes to main1
tain its present position as commanding
the resnect of the council t will be
guarded as to which rout it endorsee,
but. If any of the lines extend eg south
from tbe business part of town are
selected, it is not only be ieved, but
hoped the company will be successful
before the Rock Island city cot ncil.

The wife and daughter of Roger Dwire,
the man whose dead and mangled body
was found in the C. R. I. A P. yards at
Davsnport Tuesday morning with evi
dence! of having been run over by tbe
cars, state their belief that Dwire was
not killed accidentally, but was murdered
for bis money. Mrs. Dwire obtained a
divorce about three months ago, since
which time she and ber daughter bave
lived in Davenport and Dwire has made
bis home in Muscatine. He had some
property down there, a farm at least and
probably other possessions. Mrs. Dwire
says tbat he was in tbe habit of coming
here quite frequently, when be would see
his daughter here and anetber who is
married and lives in Rock Island, and
that upon such occasions be invariably
brought with him from 1100 to f300.
His pockets contained nothing when bis
body was fo-und. at,d upon this, in con
nection with other circumstances, is
based tbe theory of murner. The view
of the wife and daughter seems to obtain
little credence among the other people
who have come in contact with the case.

The time is past due when tbe Rock
Island and Burlington roads should have
provided the gates at the Twenty-fourth
street crossing and the roads are subject
to Icavy penalty for every day tbat
elapses between the day specified and the
time the requirements of the ordinances
are complied with. The mayor has a
letter from the Rock Island road, setting
forth its inability to agree with the C,
B. A- Q as to the joint action of the two
roads in putting the gates in. This is of
no concern to the council. Public safety
can not be endangered because of the
failure of the two riads coming to terms.
If the city per mi is itself to be inconven
ienced and delayed on this account, tbe
time when the gstes will be put in may
remnin indefinite. The gates were or
dered put in by a certain day and the city
council chould not countenance anv des
ly. The gates are imperatively needed
at this point and should be put there as
the council ordered.

A team of htndsome greys from Sni-

avenue last evening attached to a car

excavation near the corner of Twelfth
street, and both animais were helpless in
an instant, though they became piteoufly
frightened and struggled desperately to
get out. A large crowd gathered about
the scone, ropes were secured, and

horses were extricated. Dr. Glt oversee

after the horses were safely out it was
