The l ouib.iird Alarm.
It only requires a visit to the council
chamber now days to fill one with enthu
6i"ism over the advantages Rock Island i3
to have in its system of electric police
and fire alarm. Charles A. Rolfe has ar
ranged there an txnibit of the practical
working of the police telephone and
signal company's combined system of fire
alarm and police telegraph. This con
sists of a signal box, 25. and also an in
dicator. Each box is accompanied by
two keys, one marked "fire" the other
"police." When a fire alarm key is used
to open the bos door, the fire depart
ment will be summoned. If a police key
is used to open the door, the police de
partment will be summoned. In other
words the key used to unlock the box,
switches the proper signal into circuit,
requiring nothing of the person giving the
alarm but the universally known "pull
the hook." Each box is also provided
with a return signal, notifying the person
seeding in an alaim that his signal has
been received and attended to. There is
also an apparatus which records the time
of the alarm, the number of the box, etc ,
thus automatically making a complete
record of the signal. .The boxe3 are to
be located at convenient places through
out the city, nnd the indicators three in
all one in the police station, one in the

Manager Londi-rbaek Speaka Plainly
ot Imn-fcition on the Mir. et Rail
The first trip of a syndicite electric car
was made over the Third street line in
Davenport Saturday night and proved en
tirely satisfactory, except that the car
jolted a little over that part of the roid
where the old tram rail is spiked down,
and which will have to be relaid. Super
intendent Henry Schnitger manipulated
the current, and Manager Louderbsck,
Superintendent of Motive Power Fred
ericks, Treasurer Hulbert and Electrician
Willard, of the Thomson-Houston com
pany, were on ihe car. During the trip
Manager Loudeiback talked plainly to a
Democrat reporter aboat what the com-,
pany would do if Davenport continued to
manifest its unfriendly disposition re
ward the company:
"You can say in your paper in the
morning," said Mr. Louderback to tbe
representative of the Democrat, "that this
company will give the best service it can.
There wll be no waiting on switches and
there will be no delays or long waits be
tween cari. We will nin cars as often as
the patronage warrants doing. The fre
quency of the trips will be gieatly in
creased aoove what it has been, and if
there is warrant tor further increase above
the first schedule that increase will be
made Trailers will be run whenever
there is need for them. We have in the
three cities 135 cars, and we will run them
all if there is business for them, and if
tbey won't hold the people who want to
ride we will get more.
"You can say more for me," continued
Mr. Louderback, warming to his subject.
"This company ha just authorized the
expenditure of .$117,0)0 over what it has
already spent here. I can have 1200,000
mote, if I can show ths members of this
company that thtre is a net return of six
percent, for their investment. If I can
make that showing on $50o,000 more I can
have it, and I can have it for Sl.OilO.OOO.
This company has dealt liberally with th's
city, and has done you all know
what toward the increase of values
and the improvement of the city. Now
we want to be met half way by the
city. If the city will take oil these
special taxes it is burdening us with,
us as well as the Alien road; and show
a disposition to treat us in a friendly
manner, and to aid us in our work of im
provement her", we will do our par; and
mere. We will develop tbe transit sys
tem here to the limit of its profitableness,
and we will do it right.
"If the council, on the other hand, de
termines to handicap us and sit down up
on us as it has been doing, we shall pro
tect our interests. I control this proper
ty and it shall be handled as I siy. I
have the owners back of me and they will
do what I recommend . And you can say
for me. atd say it as strongly as you are
ab:e to say it, that in case of a niggardly
narrow policy toward us, such as has
been stow nin the past and is being
shown now, we wi':l not spend a dollar
beyond what is needed to make our pres
ent si s:em a paying one.
"We stall t:ive a fair trisl to eaffc lice
in tie city. Aii lines that do nm py
shall be torn up ted the material us?ri in
laying track where it will pay If the
Northwest Divccport atd Ruckmuh i.u

and tie sieei (.n iLt-m w:l. be used i
double trntkir;i; ti-e Third s:re. aa.l .he
loop lines. Taere is a criarce for prc-tr
in those lines fand we hI! stay nh -re we
can be assuied on that profit. We do
not propose to pay a cent of tribu;e for
the purpose of staying in a territory
where we have to do business at a loss.
We wili go where we can eel the recogci
tion our enterprise merits, and wheie we
can be assured of such return hs we
ought to have. We shall deel wi:h the
city as it deals with us. If we nre
trea'ed as we should be treated we will
not f p;.re t xpense to m-ike our system
and service hire perfect and complete.
The Democrat commenting on th:s
The Democrat h-as no woid to add to
this. Mr. Louderback has said what be
evident y means ard has not spared piaia
word in lie savirg of it. 1 !:c; ma-trr
hhs been mentioned so often in lnst
columns that comment is needless. It s
to be hoped that no citizen or coticciiruan
of this city will stand between it and
public improvements. Ton mnrh has
been done in this line already. It is time
to take a business view of the matter.
Eiectric cars will be running on
Tnird street in Davenport regularly after
When sees this morning Mr. Louder;
bicft stated, "to tell the truth the directors
are getting desparate about the lines in
this locality and they positively cannot
stand any further oppressions. Heate
fjrth the lines are to be cocduita on
strictly business principles and any branch
that does not pay will come up. We
have too much money invested here al
ready and cannot stand another cent of
unnecessary expenditure. We wouli
rather giye up what we have and seii it
for what we can get for it or equip soxe
of our systems elsewhere than to expend
any more money."
Mr. Louderback has been associated
with the directors of the Davenport &
Rock Island street railway company in
other enterprises and has expended mil
lions of dollars for them always with
profitable results. The company owns
besides the South Side cable roads in
Chicago, lines in St. Louis, Indianapolis,
Alton, Richmond, Ind., Houston, Tex.,
San Diego and Los Angeles, Cal., and
other places, and everywhere they have
been made to pay . The directors haye
been liberal and public-spirited in their
investments here, and it is natural that
they should complain if they see that they
are being burdened to such an extent as
to absorb what little revenue they receiye
and to preclude the possibility of profit
on their lines.
