Miss Carrie Altz, nignt operator in the
Moline telephoje station, will net forget
her experience of Saturday night. Shortly
after mid-night the rom began fining
with smoke, and whenever sheattempeed
to connect anyone the sparks flew out in
all directions. She did not dare leave
her post, and could not use the 'phon e
to call anyone up to tell of the
trouble. With ber long experience she
knew the cause, but could not anticipa te
the result or provide a .remedy. She
knew there was great danger of being
burned out, for the telephone and electric
light wires were crossed. 8he waited pa
tiently, seeing the room grow black with
smoke. Finally the current was turne d
off at the electric light station, and any
serious damage averted.

THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA
The new drimatic sensation, "The
Bottom o! the Saa," will be saen at Har
per's theatre tomorrow night, where it
will be presented on the same scale of
scenic splendor that marked its produc
tion in New York. The story is said to
be one of in'ense interest . It opens in
the cabin of the pissenger steamer Isabel
on her voyage from the W est Indies to
Havre. The principal characters are on
board. The first realistic scene shows
the destruction of tte vessel by the ex
plosion of her boilers, the rescue of tte
passengers by a passing yacht and the
sinking of the ill-fated stealer. After
some episodes which tnnspire in France
the scene changes to the deck of a steam
er laying a submarine cable, and here
some of the more intense dramatic
incidents transpire. The hero of the p'ay
descends to the bottom ot ths sea to re
pair a break in the cabl aid while in
cased in a diver's suit is accompanied by
the villain. At the very bed of the ocean.
on the deck of the sunken passenger
steamer, which is where the break of the
cable took place, the villain with a hatchet
takes advantage of his enemy, who is at
work on the broken cable, and cutting
the ai--p:pe and life-line leaves his victim
apparently dead and ascends to the sur
face. Incidentally there is an attack on
the divers by a large octopus and a
thrilling realistic conflict. la the subse
quent scenes the hero, who has been
miraculously saved by the air remaining
in his helmet, comes to confront his
would-be assassin. The various scenes
and effects are said to be produced in an
entirely realistic way. "The Bottom of
the Sea" is an adaptation by William A.
On Saturday evening next, ' Feb. 14,
there will be presented at Harper's thea
tre, that funniest and mst amusing mu
sical farce comedy "Town Lott," which
is a comedy which forces the muscles of
one's face to contract and expand at in
tervals; so much so that a continuous,
broad, loud and hearty laugh is the re
sult. It is filled to the btim with pure,
wholesome fun, and excellent singing and
dancing. Miss Eloise Wiiltrd, the clever
soubrette, supported by her own com
pany of artists, makes "Town Lota" the
funniest play ever seen.
A few of our local sports had arranged
for a little exhibition of canine ferocity
Sunday evening and had as they thought
everything "fixed," but alas how easily
things go wrong. Shortly befoe the ap
pointed hour brass buttons flashed in the
flickering light in the immediate vicinity
of the pit and all was changed. A closed
carriage rolled away bearing the princi
pals and later a little group of disap
pointed ticket holders followed the car
riage out into the darkness, and all was
silent. One of the terriers which might
have taken a conspicuous part chewed one
of his fellow creatures up in Davenport
before coming over. The disappointed
ports say the affair programmed for the
evening was a fare;.

With the acceptance of the Third ave
nue ordn ance in Moline by the otrcet
railway syndicate, the last obstacle in the
way of pushing the electric equipment
vanished, and now the wire stretchers
have clear sailing in the completion of the
portion cf the work assigned to them.
Work at the power station on Second
avenue is progressing nicely; nearly every
day witne es tne arrival of machinery.
A visit to the building even now in its
condition of semi completion, affords a
comprehensive idea of the magnitude of
the plant. To a mechanical engineer it
must be a particularly interesting
study. The wires or cables which
are to convey the cuxrent to the
Various 'ines on this side of the
river are being stretched up Twenty
third stre.t to Fourth avenue and the
wires which are to unite the system here
with that on the Davenport side, will be
pat up as soon as changes already de
scribed an: made in the tower on the draw
of the Rot k Island bridge.
In Davenport the immense car bouse is
rapidly nearing completion and will be
ia readiness for the reception of the new
cars as soon as they arrive.
Gen. Supt. Schnitger is in daily expec
tation of i n installment of the cars from
the St. Louis Car company. Sixteen are
expected tLis week, sixteen next
week aad eighteen later, com
pleting tte fifty orierel. They wili
be beaatie;, all of uniform size, sixteen
feet in length, and finished throughout in
the most elaborate and comfortable style.
They will be numbered from one to fifty
inclusive, md will ail be painted one
color, a bright yellow, this being
due to the fa-t that it will be impossible
to know how maiy are to be assigned to
each branch and on some occasions more
will be required than at ethers. The
cars will hve no lettering except on the
dash-boards, where the letters "D. & R.
I. R'y. Co " will appear. Oa the tops
will be pla:ed plainly lettered signs de
noting the destination and these can be
changed hen cars are p'aced cn other
lines of th system. The signs will have
colored backgrounds of red, blue, orange
or green a-xordiog to the route, and the
lights at niht will be colored accord
ingly, so taat there will be no difficulty
in detectii g the route at a glance.
As soon as the new system is in opera
tion the b;st of the present cars, about
35 in number, wi.l all be repainted, also
yellow and reserved for trailers on big
days anywhere on the syttem.
