THE ROCK ISLAND AHGUS, THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1890.
IT'S A GO, SURE.

Wliklhe Officials) Other Xfwn I'er
talninc twlhe Koad.
The Rock Island delegation sent to
Chicago by the citizens' mass meeting to
confer with tho officials of the Rock Isl
and road relative to the recent order is
sued bj Supt. II. F. Royce, extending the
Illinois division and consolidating the
headquarters of the enginemcn at Chica
go, thus depriving Rock Island of about
forty families of its population, has re
turned. Mayor McConochie and Mr. R
Crampton got back last night and Mr.
John Ohlweiler reached home this morn
ing. The latter gentleman was seen by
an Argus reporter. "We succeeded in
having conferences," he said, "with Gen
eral Manager St. John, Supt. Royce and
General Master Mechanic Wilson. Our
principal conversation was with Mr.
Royce, and after we bad presented our
resolutions and explained the hardships
the new crder wa9 bound to mke for
Rock Island, he informed us that the or
der was positive, aad he did not at first
take kindlv to Rock Island's idea of pro
testing. lie stated that the company
must run Its affairs on business principles
and could not consider the welfare of the
city of Rock Island in preference to
its own business. He assured us,
though, that while the company would
carry out its own Ideas as to the
best policy to be pursued in govern
ing and managing its road, that the new
order would not necessarily cause the re
moval of families from Rock Island; that
the men could continue to live here if they
preferred to, and he was not sure but
that it would be more advantageous for
some of them to remain here as the longer
lay overs would be at this end. He also
said that the order would have the ef
feet of bringing more crews here than
' L9ter we had an audience with Gen
eral Manager St. John, and he talked
pretty much the same way that Mr.
Royce did, giving us no satisfaction as to
the repealing or altering of the order.but
ne explained that crop prospects were
poor this year, and that the company,
forsceiug a reduction in its revenue on
this account, had realized the necessity
of curtailing expenses, and that the offi
cials had seen where by this recent move
of consolidating the divisions they could
largely attain to that end. As
to the matter of removing
the engine crews from Rock Island
he corroborated what Mr. Roy ze had said j
in mat respect, ibe mayor spoke of the
possibility of engine men from this end
getting a number of short runs out of
Chicago to Peru, Seneca, Peoria, etc ,
and return, thus keeping them away from
Rock Island two weeks at a time, and Mr.
St. John replied, 'we have thought of
that, and made provision; all the
short runs will be given to old
paat oml !
men living in Chicago.
"Having received these assurances we
could say nothing more on this question,
except to speak of the neglected cocdi
tion of the company's grounds and build
ings from Twentieth street east, and the
officials advised us to lay the matter be
fore Mr. Kimball, at Davenport, and we
will do it.
"We met the engineer and firemen's
committees and they are in earnest in
their determination to protest against
the new order on the question of endur
ance. They were to meet the officials this
morning, and if they are given no satis
faction will adopt other means for pre
senting their grievances more forcibly.
We were impressed with the earnestness
and determination evinced by the broth
erhood men, and we believe they mean
The committee-does not 6eem to be
satisfied with the results of the confer
ences, notwithstanding the assurances of
General Manager St. John and General
Superintendent Royce that there would
be no necessity for removal of the engi
neers and firemen from Rock Island.
They fear that with the order in effect
the crews will find it so much to their ad
vantage and interest that they will be ob
liged to move to the big city's end of the
run where the headquarters are to be.
About the Rock Island round house
there is nothing new conceruing the new
order. Foreman Mirfield is inclined, as
is his nature, to be reticent, but he said
this morning that he bad no idea when
the first crew would run through. They
would run out of Rock Island in their
regular order tomorrow as usual, but af
ter they left Rock Island tbey would be
subject to further orders.
An old engineer staled last evening
that the plan for increasing the' runs of
engines had originated with the C, B. &
Q., which road the Rock Island was im
itating in this regard. That after the
strike on the Burlington, the officials got
to figuring on the number of miles a
freight engine could run without repairs,
and they got it down to a nicety, estimat
ing that 100.000 miles could be run by a
good engine without general overhauling,
and that 50,000 miles could be made a
year, and hence an engine could run two
years without general repairs. Thus
they were figuring wholly on the endur
ance of the engine without regard to the
endurance of the men and finding that
the engine could stand it, decided to put
it iu effect, and now the Rock Island is
The Davenport Dtmocrat has the fol
' lowing relativo to unpopular movements
on the part of the Rock Island road in
other departments of its service :
The Rock Island passenger brakemen
are indignant at the new order putting on
the colored brakemen in Illinois tomor
row, but there ia nothing for them to do,
and the order will be a go. The colored
men will have the head end of trains 11
to 16 inclusive, and will be called upon
to act the role of porter for the occupants
of the chair cars, and do other similar
work about the trains. They work
cheaper than white men do, and their
will be some saying in salaries.
The salaries of the white brakemen
were raised some time ago from $50
$55 a month. This is partly made up,
however, by the taking off of the three
crews that have been selected as the ones
to go, as stated a day ago in these col
umns. The conductors to be taken off
are 8. C. Birchard, J. E. Roper and A. V.
Nutting, all residents of this city now.
Mr. Birchard will go to Atlantic and take
a run there and the other men will go
into the freight - service. The brakemen
will do what they can, as far as thev now
Another change that has recently been
ordered u old arrangements is in the com -
pensation of the branch conductors for
their services to the express companv
They have been getting paid by lbs ex
press company, generally if not in all
cases to the amount of $20 a month.
This has been ordered discontinued.
There is mourning among the men on the
branches in consequence.
The Rock Island is putting the screw
to its men in other ways, however, that
the public will be more apt to endorse.
A circular has been issued in which it is
stated that within a few weeks all em
ployes will be furnished blanks upon
which they will be ordered to place an
swers to questions concerning their so
briety, social position, character, whether
married or single, and many other ques
tions. All men whose reputation is not
good will be discharged. - The imme
diate occasion of this order, it is said, is
the fact that the recent switchmen's
strike in Chicago was the result of drun
kenneS9. The strike was because a
switchman was discharged, and bis dis
charge was because he was drunk. It
was not till Manager St. John had ob
tained evidence of this fact and laid it
before the strikers that they were con
vinced of their folly in going on with the
strike and agreed to go to work again.

annually grown we can spare more than
half after meeting all the home wants of

increase the crop to any amount called

From reliable information in regard to
the crops of Henry and Mercer as well as
Rock Island county, as appearing in yes-
terday's A Rous, the crops are going to be
short. It is confidently expected that the
corn crop will not be oyer one-third that
of last year in these counties. Many
farmers say that they do not expect a
yield of more than from 17 to 25 bushels
per acre. Tbey have had very little rain
and tbey believe that should it come now
it will be too late. Corn is drying at the
butts and the leaves are deadening.. Ttie
oats crop is light, a number of fields hav
ing been threshed out with only 30 to 35
bushels to the acre as a result. Potatoes
are very light, and poor results are beard
from Kansas and Nebraska. Should th
corn crop be a failure, the renters will he
in a bad condition, as they will not raise
enough to pay their rent.
. tneer Freak of the Mfttatnine.
About three o'clock yesterday after
noon tne citizens oi this vicinity were
startled by a terrific clap of thunder com
ing out of a clear sky, only slightly over
cast with light clouds, and much wonder
was expressed as to where it came from
and what caused it; but those in the vicin
ity of Seventh and Brady streets were
made aware that a bolt of lightning had
struck an oak tree in the yard of Dr. W
F. Peck. Pieces of bark and splinters of
wood were strewn about in profusion, and
one piece of live, solid oak, about thir
teen feet long and three inches thick by
six inches broad, was thrown upon the
west trolle wire of the electric car line
and fell to the track, being picked up and
taken into the Academy of Science. The
pieces flew as though a charge of dyna
mite had been exploded inside the tree
Several people passing at the time were
severely shocked, but recovered soon
The bolt struck the tree at its fork, about
fifteen feet from the ground, the branches
reaching much higher, and several higher
anu larger trees standing in close prox
imity to it. It was a most peculiar freak
of tne subtle fluid. Davenport Times
