Oh! Dear, House Gleaning !
The work of strengthening the Rock
Ieland bridge is progressing much more
rapidly than was at first anticipated. The
force is under the supervision of H. D.
McKee, of Phoenixville, Pa., superinten
dent of the Phoenix Bridge company, of
that city, which has the contract.
Already the new deck is prac
tically completed the entire length
of the draw, and the indications
are that the immensu undertaking will be
completed in much less time than was
originally anticipated. As baa been
stated, the old wooden girders, seven by
14 inches in dimension occurring every
16 feet for the entire length of the bridge,
are to be replaced by iron girders, 42
inches high and J- of an inch thick, with
caps on both sides, nine inches wide and
of similar thickness. Each new girder
weighs three tons. The wooden flooring
of the upper deck is being entirely re
placed by a J inch iron floor
ing in stringers S3 inches wide,
and .all the old wocden ties will
be replaced with new, sound ones. The
work so far has been on the upper deck
over the central portion of the draw
Here the work his been pursued under
difficulties that will not be met with else
where. The supports upholding the
roof that protects the engine rooms at
tais poict had to be taken away and to
effect th:s tbey were suspended from
The Rock Island road, it is understood.
proposes putting a new track upon the
upper deck as soon as the new girders are
in. Tbe repairs on the bridge are not to
be allowed to prevent the stringing of
wires for the syndicate power, and only
the signature of the secretary of war to
tbe necessary papers is necessary to start
that branch of improvement going. - The
Western Union company has also under
taken a big job in the replacing of the
high tower over the draw with a shorter
and stronger one.
The permit for the crossing of the
bridge with the wires that are to carry the
potential current for the operation of the
tri-city syndicate street cars has been ra-
ceived, and tbe company bus made its
contract with the government, - accepting
the conditions laid down by the latter.
Engineer Willard, the Thompson-Houston
expert in charge- of the work, has submit
ted his working plans for the erection of
the brackets and the stringing of tbe 14
heavy copper wires that are to be used.
These brackets will be placed on tbe rail
road deck, at the side and rising several
feet above it. The wires will be strung
at such an altitude as to remove all
danger of injury to any one below in case
any one of them should break. They
will be situated so high up that their short
span between brackets will not allow
them sweep enough, even if tbey do melt
or break in two, to come in contact with
anyone on the walk below. There will,
however, be very little danger of such
Of coura? work on tbe upper deck will
necessarily have to be done without the
interruption of the passage of trains
t cross the upper portion and it was hoped
tbat the lower deck might also be left
pen to travel, though Capt. Lv on, acting
commandant, realizing the danger for
t lally warned the public at the com
nencemeni oi me wot a. it is very ap-
l arent tbat tbe work is to be attended by
considerably more danger than at first
supposed, tbe battered appearance the
t ridge cars are assuming showing this if
rothing else, and Capt. Lyon has been
seriously thinking of closing the bridge
entirely until the work is done.
On Sunday evening memorial services
were held at Augusuna college cnapei
in honcr of the students who fell victims
to the typhoid fever scourge a year agOt
There was a large congregation present.
The scriptures were read and prayer was
read by Student M. L. Larson, of the the
ological seminary. After this Prof.
Bartholomew delivered a memorial dis
course in the English language, basing
bis remarks on the words, "Dead. Yet
Speaketh." He said: This is an occa
sion of tender memories; memories of
sore affliction, of dark days, of sad hearts'
of earnest prayers, of anxious watchings.
It is also an occasion for devote thanks
giving, oecause uoa rose up again so
many of our students who were at death's
door; because he has brought blessing
and prosperity out of our affliction; and
because be has not visitc d us again with
his chastising rod. But we recall es
pecially our honored dead, who rest from
their labors. This spring the grass
grows green over seven mounds which
were not a year ago. These in tbem
selves are a precious memorial. The
voices of those whom we laid away are
silent in death, yet they speak unto us.
President Oleen spoke in Swedish, basing
his remarks on the 90th psalm . The ex
crcises were interspersed with music,
both iu English and Swedish. Tbe clos
ing prayer and benediction were offered
by Rev. Prof. C. E. Lindberg.

The llaMFatiae Bridge.
Maior Mackenzie and Capt. Durham
were in the city last evening consulting
witn tne bridge company relative to lo
cating a sneer Doom lor the convenience
of raft boat pilots. Their instructions
were to construct a floating sheer boom
800 feet long from tbe pier on the Iowa
side of the channel span, extending at an
angle of about 10 degrees. The ex
pense incurred will amount to several
thousand dollars, in view of tbe ex
traordinary width of the channel span.
440 feet, and tbe long approach to it
from up the riyer, it seems like an un
necessary accommodation, but will have
to be put in if ordered bv these officers.
Capt. Durham had letters with him from
pilots, asking that tbe bridge company be
required to construct a boom 5,000 feet
long on tbe Iowa side, acd 4,000 feet long
on tbe Illinois side. bupt. Lilubndge
suggested .building one to connect with
the government bridge draw at Dayea-
port. Muscatine Journal.
