Severt.I months ago the Argus made
extender! reference on several occasions
to the titlked-of charlges in the running
of freipl t trains on the Illinois division
of the Rxk Island road, and also on the
Iowa division, both cf which terminate
here. At that time assurances were res
ceived from the management of the C,
K. I. 4 P. that any contemplated
changes would not necessitate the res
moval if any crews or families from
nock Island, and at the same time came
advices t the road men themselves from
the company that they would be given
ample nctice before any radical changes
were male. But in the face of all
this an in portant order came to Foreman
Mirdeld, of the Rock Island round house
saiuniay it was duly posted "on the
board" in the round house and rond as

Dear Mr: Pieaae arrange that on and

except looal imsrht. shall run "through"
between fhops and Rock Island and shops
uu reona. lours truiv.
H. P. Roycb, Gen'l Supt.
This is a very short order, but its sig
nificance is tremendous, as might have
been readily conceived by one witnessing
the commotion it create J among train
men when they caught a glimpse of it,
and the 10 pie of Rock Island will re
gard it with equal importance when
us real maaning is fully explained. The
order in the first place comes from the
general superintendent to the general
master mechanic, who accordingly for
warded it to his subordinate, Foreman
Mirfleld, i f the Rock Island round house,
whose department here in Rock Island is
most affected by the change. The latter
part of the order with reference to Peoria
attaches no interest to Rock Inland.
'The shops" are in Chicago, and the true
meaning 1 f the order is that freight trains
on the Illinois division are to run
'through" between Rock Island and Chi
cago instead of changing back each way
at Peru and that Chicago will be the
headquarters of the division, that all the
long lay overs will be in that city, all
repairs being made there; io a
word that the crews on the east run now
making their homes in Rock Island will
be taken away from the city and made
only trans ent in their relations to the
city. Thty will only come in here long
enough to deliver their trains and got an
other out, coming in first in first out.
and no crew will be in the city
longer tba a eight to twelve hours at a
stretch and probably not that long. There
are twenty engines running between
Rock Island and Peru, which means forty
men and forty families, or about three
hundred people, who will be obligned un
der the new order to move to Chicago.
This item alone entails a loss in cash of
$50,000 a year to our merchants, to say
nothing oi the social and family ties to
be severe!, homes which yeLrs have
been spent in securing to be left, and
the increased hours of work to be
imposed upon the men. But with
this order comes the probability of
another v hich would work further dis
aster to Rock Island. The jurisdiction
of Trainmaster Root, of Davenport, has
been exteaded to Dea Moines, while
Trainmaster Fox, of Atlantic, is to
be moved to Des Moines, and have bis
territory extended from that city to
Council Bluff , Trainmaster Giles Wil-
iams, of Des Moines, having resigned to
accept the assistant superintendency of
the Pittsburg & Ft. Wayne, taking his
chief train dispatcher Cooper, with him
as trainmaster. The lengthening of the
MiUlivisiot s of the Iowa division fore
tells the running of freight trains from
Rock Island to Des Moines Instead of
stopping at Brooklyn, and the running
the ci-ews west of Des Moines
through ti Council Bluffs, instead
f turning at Stuart. But more it
savors strongly of a determina
tion to mat e Chicago and Des Moines the
two great c ivisinn centers on the
ine of the system, running the
from Chicago as far as Rock Island and
back, and irom Des Moines to Rock Isl
and and ba.k and to Council Bluffs and
back. This Older of things would in
clude anotlier blow to Rock Island, as it
would take about thirty engine crews
running west from Rock Island to Brook
lyn away from here and move them to
Des Moinen. In fact if the Rock Island
carries out the scheme which its recent
move disck'Ses, it wiil take all its engine
men from Uock Island as far as residence
is concerned; to express It pointedly, it
will give the city as severe a thrust as it
is in the power of a corporation to inflict
upon a community, especially one that
has contributed as handsomely to the
support of that corporation as Rock Isl
and has idways to the road that so
proudly bears its name. So much for the
probabilities and possibilities.
Now as to the direct effects of the or
der already issued transferring the crews
on the Illii ois division to Chicago, and
abandoning Peru aa a terminal point, to
which it has heretofore been the custom
for the Rock Island engines to run and
return. Amde irom ine disaster mat 11 is
to bring to Rock Island In the substitu
tion of trar sent railroad men for perma
nent residents and property holders, it is
going to work a great hardship to those
men, whict they are not disposed to as
sume witbc at a protest. That the labor
and time of the engine men will be great-
increastd in fact, doubled by .the
change is spparant. The engine crews
running eaiit now go to Peru, eighty-two
miles and return, and those running west
to Brooklyn, 106 miles and return. Un
der the new order the Illinois
will haye to run to Chica-
go. 184 miles, and the prospects
for the western men are to Des Moines
177 miles. Either 184 or 177 miles is a
long distance for a fireman to keep the
furnaces in one of the big engines of the
Rock Island hot. pulling a heavy freight
train. For a passenger train clipping it
over the territory in a few hours it is not
so bad. And it is no less a severe task
for the engineer who sits over a hot boil
er head for eighteen to twenty hours at a
stretch; and the fireman's duties are to
be made still more arduous by the addi
tional duties of being obliged to clean
out his own fires and fill up his sandbox
both of which tasks have hitherto been
attended to at the round house at Peru,
but being now under way for such
length of time he will be obliged to look
after tbls work in addition to shoveling
ENGINE HEN PROTEST.
Realizing the increase in labor to be
imposed by the contemplated change, a
meeting to take action was held this
morning of engine men of the Rock Isl
and road, both engineers and firemen, at
the rooms of Division 60, B. of L. E. and
Twin City Lodge 89, B. of L. F., in
Reynold's block. Every C , R. I. iSfP.
engineer and fireman of either division in
the city, about thirty in all, was present.
Chief Baker, of Division 60, B. of L. E.,
presided. The effects of the new order
were discussed, and resolutions were
adopted protesting against the new order,
and committees appointed from both the
engineer and firemen organizations to go
to Chicago and present the resolutions
personally to the management of the
The committees are: engineers, James
Ewing and J. J. McCormick; firemen,
Daniel Maroney and Chas. Pearson.
these committees leave tonight for
Chicago and tomorrow morning in con
junction with a meeting at the rooms of
Division 111 in Chicago, will prepare
plan of formally presenting the griev
nuues ior as grievances tnev are re
gardedto the Rock Island officials.
Some of the engine men are regarding
the e fleets of the new order with some
thing akin to bitterness. For instance.
one of the engineers snid: "The Rock
Island proposes to give us a mean deal.
We have worked years for the company's
interests and built our home) here; some
of us have just got them paid for, and
now we are to be asked to give them up,
and increase our living expenses by mov
ing to Chicago."
"Could you nor retain your home
here under the new order?" interrupted
an Argus reporter, who had been listen
ing to the mutterings of discontent being
exchanged by a group of engineers who
had grown old in the service of the Rock
"We could if we did not care anything
for our families," came the prompt reply,
'and didn't give a darn whether we saw
them once a week or once in two weeks.
But I don't believe in living that way. I
give the road two-thirds of my time now
and am subject to their call any moment
when I am at home, without going away
for a longer period at a time than I now
"You see, there are so many what we
call 'turn backs' on the east end of the
road coming out of Chicago, runs oat to
Bureau, LaSalle, Joliet, Senaca and down
to Peoria, and down to Kankakee and
back, that a man living in Rock Island
and catching a number of those in a
stretch, there would not be much show
for him getting home for a long time."
"There is no use talking," chirped in
another, "if the new order goes, we'll
have to move to Chicago or quit, as all
the extra men who now live here will be
moved np there, too, and a man could
not get off at this end of the run if he
was dying, or no matter how urgent the
"Oh, we will be under the supervision
of the Chicago round house, there is no
doubt about that, and will have to move
to Chicago. Mr. MirSeld will have no
further control over us, except as we are
here temporarily, but Chicago will be our
headquarters," said still more.
These are but samples of how the en
gine men feel and of what the order
means as a serious blow to Rock Island
on the part of the C , R. I. & P. rails
The action on the part of the Rock Isl
and road has been the topic of conversa
tion among many of our business men
today who had learned of it, and many
expressions of surprise and disapproval
were heard. Mayor McConochie has
taken the matter properly in band and
issued the following call for
