The Bridge Protect.
The Bubject of a new bridge across the
Mississippi river in this vicinity came up
for general discussion at the meeting of
the Davenport Business Men's associa
tion Monday evening. Secretary Deni
son stated that the question had been
asked of him whether the parties holding
a bridge franchise at present were re
sponsible for the recent agitation of the
subject, and he wished to publicly reply
in the negative. The introduction of the
subject on his part had been entirely vol
untary. A. P. McGuirk stated that a
well-founded rumor had reached him to
the effect that the C. B. & Q officials
bad had plans perfected for a bridge at
this point some time ago, but had been
deterred from taking any action in the
premises, because of the hostile attitude
of the Iowa railway commission toward
railroads generally. H. T. Denison
moved that a committee of five members
be appointed to investigate and report
upon the ad visibility of bonding the city
for the sum of $500,000 to be expended
on internal improvements. Carried, and
the chair appointed A. P. McGuiik. S

TEE ELECTRIC SYSTEM.

Trass ter sf Ue Csrrest. '
It is confidently expected by the elec
tricians of the Thomson-Houston system
that within three weeks the electric cars
will be tinning on the Rock Island side
of the river. There is enough machinery
in the pewer house in this city now to
operate a portion of the system, and
things are only waiting on the completion
of one of the three big tripod boilers that
are to furnish the steam for the engines.
This boiler, it is expected. -will be set up
and in order in a few days more. The
work of erecting the poles and stretching
the wires on the Third avenue line in Mo
line is progressing cicely and will be com
pleted in bout 10 days.
On the Davenport side, the car shop on
the corner of Second and Rock Island
streets is under roof. The last bit of
covering vas laid on it yesterday. Its in
side work will be done in two weeks
more, and it will be ready for whatever
disposition is to be made of it.
But. the Democrat says: "There are
obstacles ia the way of getting the cars
in motion over here, however, and we
shall not ride behind the motorneer as
soon as our friends in Illinois. The hitch
now is in connection with the crossing of
the bridge with the lines for the carrying
of the pott mial current. The plans for
this work have been made for some time,
have been submitted to the Western
Union Telegraph company and accepted
as being satisfactory, and now all that is
wanted is the order from the war depart
ment allowing the work to be carried out
as contemplated by those plans. This
order, for some mysterious, red tape
reason, does not come, and in the mean
time things are standing still. It will
take some t me to put the lines across the
bridge after this official permission is re
ceived. Tte representatives of the syn
dicate are not committing themselves to
positive promises as to the day and hour
the lines on this side of the river will be
gin to run by electricity, but they con
tinue to hope that it will notbelcne, and
our people jam with them in the hope.
STOPPED THE SQUEAK.
A Mississippi titrtBbsit Knctseer
Wh -Filtered it Out."
A newspaper man who has lived on the
Mississippi river tells an amusing yarn in
the Troy (N. Y.) Press. It was his for
tune to often mike a trip up or down the
river on one of the old siernwheelers.
The engines of those boats were in plain
view oa deck, and were usually the ob
jects of curiosity on the part of the pas
sengers. "Oa one of these occasions,"
says he, "'two or three of us
were interes ei in the motive
power of the boat, which for some seem
ingly inexplicable reason, kept up a con
tinual squeaking. During one of the
most excruciating spasms of the suffering
machinery the engineer, with determina
tion in every look and motion, prasped
the huge oil can and made for the spot
whence came the cry for lubrication. A
bountiful supply cf oil was poured upon
every conceiv'iblj plase of friction, and
for a few moments a'l moved smoothly.
But soon the 8?emingly everlasting squeak
began again, much to the disgust of the
passengers ss well as of the engineer.
Again the oiling process was resorted to.
and more pers-iveringly than before, and
quiet was again restored.
But just ss the burly engineer ap
proached the ( roup of spectators another
squeak occurred, which his quick ear this
time located correctly. A ventriloquist
was in the crowd. Walking up to the
joker, the irate oiler seized him by the
coat collar with one hand and with the
other squirted the remaining contents of
the oil can down the victim's back until
the grease ran out of the legs of his
trousers. "There," he exclaimed. "I
don't think tint old engine will squeak
again this trip." And it did not, for tbe
ventriloquist found his time completely
occupied in vain efforts to erase the evi
dence of the success of his experiment.
The B. . Cat .
It is expected by the C, B. AQ. man
agement that the reductions of employes
now being mad:wiil reduce the pay roll
of the eight lints forming the Burlington
system, by about $150,000 a month. The
Burlington's statement for February,
which is now being compiled, will be
made public abcut March 31. No offi
cial information regarding the February
statement can b i obtained until it is pivec
out, but an iiiBide authority estimates
that it will be felly as bad as tbe January
statement. In its policy of retrench
ment. the Burlington is striking all the
grades of employes .
