The Ownership of the Rock Island

The Union flies the track at the resolu
tioos endorsed by the mayor and city
clerk of each of the cities of Davenport,
Moline and Rock Island and by the pres
ident and secretary of each of the Bust
nees Men's associations'of the three cities
as published in last night's Argus, and
urgii g that section 5 of the regulations
making the Rock Island bridge free at all
seasons of the year be permitted to stand.
Then are numerous reasons why the
Union might have been expected to op
pose such a course even to the disregard
of the wishes of all interests of the com
mnn ty as voiced through the mayors and
city clerks and the officers of the commer.
cial bodies of the irNciltes. There are
thre explanations at least of the Union's
attitude that are familiar with the charac
ter is' ic policy of that excuse for a repre-
sentt.tive newspaper, and briefly sum
mari.ed they are:
1. It is the hireling and a very poor
one too of the ferry company, the inter
ests of which are alone affected by the
established permanency of section " 5 of
the I ridge regula'ions, which has hereto
fore been in force only during the season
or suspended river navigation.
2. The success of Congressman Gear
through the cooperation of the three
cities in making section 5 permanent, is a
pointed reflection on Congressman Qest
who'te election was due in a large degree
to hia being a Rock Island mau, and the
undrrstanding that the interests of the
people of Hock Island would be guarded
with special care by him.
3. It 19 opposed on general principle
to public improvements and progres
But the cunning of the morning paper
a trait it has never before attempted
to manifest in attempting to lay at the
doot of the C, R. I. & P. railroad the
efforts to maintain section 5 'is as trans-.
parent as it is without truth in fact.
Rea 1 a few lines from its argument to
substantiate this view:
T le theory of the war department has
heretofore been that as tba Chicago.Rock
Island & Pacific Railroad Co. owns a half
intr rest in this bridge its rights and inter
ests should be protected to the extent
at least of not allowing the use of the
lower deck of the bridge for the purpose
of lessening the company's legitimate
iraric and earnings on the upper deck.
The question that naturally arises iu
the minds of one who reads the above ex
tract is if the Rock Island road is respon
sibli for the remonstrance now on file in
YVaiLingtrin against the permanency of
section 5. why should the Union feel
icse f called upon to sustain the said re
run!, stranre so enthusiastically? But be
fore attempting the solution of the cons
u rid rum let us gee if the C , R. I. & P.
road does own a bslf interest in this
bri( ge. 'Let us have a little light from
the congressional record at the time the
brie ge was built, on the subject. In the
pro ieed ings of the second session of the
Thirty-ninth congress in 1807 may be
found this provision wbich was passed
relative to the construction of the present
bridge at Rock Island:
For the erection of a bridge at Rock
Island, Illinois, as recommended by the
chief of ordnance, two thousand dollars:
Pnvided, That the ownership of said
briilge shall be and remain in the United
States, and the Rck Island and Pacific
company shall have the right of way over
said bridge for all purposes of transit
aor )ss the island and river.upon the condi
tion that the said company shall, before
any money is expended by the govern
ment, agree to pay and shall secure to the
tn ted States, first, half the cost of said
briilge; and, second, half the expenses of
keeping said bridge in repair, and upon
guaranteeing said conditions to the sat-
isfi.ction of the secretary of war, by con
tra' ;t or otherwise, the paid company
shbll bave the free use of said bridge tor
puvposes of transit, but without any
claim to ownership thereof.
Then from the proceedings of the
Fortieth congress the following joint res-
olition passed July 20, 1808, relating to
the "ownership"' of the bridge, the fol
lowing is taken:
I5e it resolved bv the senate and house
of representatives of the United States of
America in congress assembled, That
thi: act of congress "making appropria
tes for the support of the army for the
ye ir ending June thirty, eighteen huu
dr:d and sixt-eight, and for other pur-
peses," approved March two, eighteen
hundred and sixty-seven, be, and the
same is uerebj, so amended as to author
ize and direct the secretary of war to
order the commencement of work on the
bridge over the Mississippi river at Rock
Island, to connect the said island with the
cUies of Davenport and Rock Island:
Provided, That the ownership of said
oniige snail be and remain in the United
Slates, and the Rock Island & Pacific
Railroad company shall have the right of
way oyer said bridge for all purposes of
transit across the island and river, upon
erudition that the said railroad comnanv
shall pay to the United States, first, half
of the cost of the superstructure of the
b ulge over the main channel and half the
cost of keeping the same in repair, and
shall also build at its own cost the bridec
oer that part of tie river wbich is on the
eust side of the island of Rock Island, and
a so the railroad on and across said island
of R -ck Island; and upon a full com'
pliance with these conditions said railroad
c impany shall have the use of said bridge
f ir the purposes of free transit, but with
out any claim to the ownership thereof;
and said railroad company shall, within
six months after said new bridge is ready
f r use, remove their old bridge from the
river and their railroad track from its
i resent location on the island of Rock
Island: A nd provided furtlier. That the
government may permit any other road
r roads wishing to cross on said bridge
to do so by paying to the parties then in
interest the proportionate cost of said
bridge, but no such permission to other
roads shall impair the right hereby granted
to the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific
Railroad company; and that the total
(ostof said bridge shall not exceed the
istimates made by the commissioners ap

resolution, to make and guarantee the
igreement specified in the act of appro
priation aforesaid, approved March tec

then the f ecretary of war shall be, and is
hereby authorized and required to direct
the removal of the existing bridge, end
to direct the construction of the bridge
aforesaid, and expend the money appro
priated for that purpose in said act; and
the said Rock Island & Pacific Railroad
company shall not have, acquire or enjoy
any right of way. or privilege thereon, or
the use of said bridge, until the agree
ment aforesaid shall be made ana guar
anteed according to the terms and condi
tionsof said act of appropriation. All
acts or parts of acts inconsistent with
these resolutions are hereby repealed .

this resolution shall be constructed so as
to conform to the requirements of section
two of an act entitled, "An act to au
thorize the construction of certain bridges
and to establish them as post roads." ap

dred and sixty-six.
Approved July 20. 18CS.
It is unnecessary to further comment
on the actual ownership of the Rock Is
land bridge or how far the C , R.. I. & P.
road is empowered to interfere with traf
fic over it. The C., R. I. & P., as is
plainly seen, is in no respect interested in
the ownership of the bridge. The gov
ernment of the United States does not go
into partnership with corporations in the
construction of public works Uncle
Sam does not do business in that way. So
much for that part of the Union's argu
Now as to what interests are affected
by the continuation in operation at all
seasons of section 5 What corporation
other than the ferry is to be affected by the
observance of the rule restricting the
opening of the bridge to traffic in the
season of river navigation and the re
moval of Biich barriers to trade when the
river is open? "What interests solely
could be benefitted by such regulations?
Why. if ths C, R. I. & P. road had any
thing to say about these rules, should it
discriminate as to what seasons there
should be free use of the bridge for trans
fer of freights by wagons, and what se&
sons businers over the lower deck of the
bridge should be checked? What differ-.
ence does it make to a railroad when river
navigation is open and when it is slupi-
fied by the frigid embrace of winter?
But let us forbear to read another line
from the Union's argument:
There is no particular benefit to the
public as these resolutions suggest.
There is not a branch of business in
the three cities that is not benefitted by
free bridges, and just in such a propor
tion is the public benefitted. Every ad
ditional cent of toll or freightage that the
business man is compelled to pay in the
receipt of his goods is sooner or later
charged to the consumer. That miy be
low tariff doctrine, but it tits in pretty
nicely here without regard to politic.
The opening of the Rick Island bridge
to traflio at all seasons removes the ferri
age on evjry dozen of egi andevery
pound of butter or every bushel of pota
toes, onions or grain that passes between
the cities of R wk Islaud and Dvenport.
It lessens the cost of coal to the Daven
port consumer and opens a bigger trade
with Rock Island. It benefits all classes
of commercial pursuit; it benefits the en
tire public to have section 5 of the Rock
Island bridge regulations ns it is.aud as it

Now we have tbess same goods and

He either is trying to deceive the people
or else paid too much for bis goods

style goods. In either case the people

for them. No dealer can or will sell
goods at cost, especially when they have

We ask the people this question: Why
is wall paper so much cheaper since we

our method of doing business, namely:
small profits and quick returns jrith an
assortment of the latest patterns of wall
paer larger then all the other dealers
combined. The public appreciates enter

we have them all the run. No rents, no
