The fact that we are to have a com
plete system of electric railways in the
tri-cities so near in the future attaches
special interest to everything that 'can
be learned upon the success of electricity
as a motive power, which, as a conse
quence, becomes a matter of current in
terest. The city of Des Moines prides
itself on the most complete electric equip
ment in Iowa, and one of the best in the
United States. The tri-city equipment
will be second largest excelled only by
Boston-when it is in complete operation,
but Des Moines' electrical plant has at
tracted attention for some time and there
has been much surmise as to bow it
would come'out ot its first winter encoun
tei. The Leader, of that city, has fur
nished some interesting information on
the subject. It says:
There was no little apprehension and
great natural curiosity to note the suc
cess of the Des Moints electric system of
street railroad during the last winter
months. The great outlay by home cap
italists to inaugurate the new system of
running street cars by electricity was a
bold move, requiring considerable confi
dence. The results have been more than
satisfactory. A victory has been won for
electric traction and the public has come
to have perfect faith and confidence in
the new propelling power. Now that
winter is over the country is discussing
the admirable electric system. Des
Moines takes great pride in its electric
system of street railroads, and its record
for reliability duting the past winter will
compare favorably with any road in tbe
country. On seeking for particular
information at the office of the com
pany as for its storm record, the re
porter was shown the daily record
bonk. The first heavy snow storm of
the week occurred on January 1, and
being Xew Years day will be easily
recollected as one of extreme severity.
Tbe appliances for fighting this, snow
plows, scrapers and etc , were kept upon
the tracks, run by electricity, and were
successful in keeping the routes open to
travel throughout tbe day. Parties liv
ing or visiting at houses remote from the
tracks thought surely the cars would uot
be running, and telephoned for hacks.
What was their surprise and chagrin to
see the warm well-lighted cars bowling
along, while the horses attached to the
hacks were plodding painfully through
the great drifts of snow. The record
shows other storms more or les3 severe,
on Februarv 8. March 1, 2, 5, 7, 8. 18
and on the 20th, a sleet storm. On every
one of these days the system was in
operation, and cars running very little
behind time, if any, and at no time dur
ing tbe whole winter has there been a tie
up of the cars, caused by the elements.
This is a great victory for the believers
in electricity for street railroads, and puts
to flight all doubts regarding its reliability
in winter time. Toe test has been a
severe one during the past storm season,
and the Des Moines Street Railway com
pany has cone through it successfully.
Tbe Apr.l number of the Street Rail
way Journal has devoted a great deal of
space to tbe discussion of this part of
the street railway question. It savs.
"The storm on Tuesday, March 3, was
the heaviest experienced in Boston for
years. The fall was not less than 18
inches, find altogether the storm was one
unusually severe and exceptional in char
acter and uniting mny trying conditions.
In spite of ell difficulties, however, the
electric serv'ce won a complete victory,
and the result showed how effectively
good apparatus and good administration
can overcome a furious storm. The situ
ation is beet summed up in the words of
Mr. Burchmore, of the West Erie com
pany, w"ho f aid: 'So far as detentions
acd tieUvs w(-nt. we should rot haye
known that we were contending with
a grta: storm "

Tbe president of the great governmen
tal staff of physicians and surgeons, with
his assistants are now visiting this
country and are permanently located at
their residence, 217 west Fourth street,
near Main, Davenport. All who visit these
eminent doctors before May 20. will receive

cure. The object in pursuing this
course is to become rapidly and person
ally acquainted with the sick and af
flicted. Tbe doctors treat every varie
ty of disease and deformity, but will not
accept incurable cases. If your malady
is beyond all hope they will frankly tell
you so; also caution you against spend
ing more money for useless treatment.
Invalids will please not take offense if
rejected as incurable. All difficult sur
gical operations performed this month
will be free of charge.
Remember tbe date and go early, for
their offices ate crowded from morning
till night. Office hours from 9 a. m. to 7
p. m.; Sundays 10 a. m. to 4 p. m.
