Oatlaa-s) at Home as Proponed by a
Davenport Pap r, ib Poatble WliU
the Present Street Railway Facili
ties). The Davenport Democrat of lart evens
ing makes the following timely tugges-
tions under the head of "Outings at
Home," and they are applicable iih
equal force to Rock Island. Hence they
These warm days and nighis are scat
tering the people away to tbe mountains
and seaside. All who cn go at this lime
are seeking rest in cooler and more de
lightful places. Tbe impulse is natural
and it is only a pity that the number of
outers is not 1 trger. But we cannot all
go away. There are thousands of per
sons in this city who are unable to get
out of town for even a week or part of a
week, during the heated term. Subsis
tence depends on close, hard, unremitting
toil. These people, as mu:h as
many others, need the rest and
recreation. There are others bel
ter circumstanced in otbei' ways, who
are still unable to take a vacation. What
those people need is ampler means of
recreation here at home.
In the large cities the street cars furn
ish the only outings that many people
have. They carry paseengers at swift
enough speed to create a cooling breeze,
carry them cheaply and safely, and re
turn them safely to their homes without
possibility of failure. Why can't we
have such a system of night street car
service here? la the hot months there
would undoubtedly be patronage for it.
Suppose the lines of tbe tri-city corn
puny and the Davenpost Central were to
announce that they will run cars in suffl.
cient numbers to carry all comers com
fortably, and were to make th j trips till
11 o'clock at night, two or three nights a
week. If tbe people knew they could
take a ride down town and get home
without being crowded to death or com
pelled to stand, and if they were morally
certain of being carried home again in
safety and comfort, and in reasonable
time, there might cartainty be some bus
iness done in this way. It would not be
long till the people would understand
aad more than pay tbe extra cost of the
service. A lew extra cars will render it.
It is understood that tbe tri-city lines
offer a large reducton in regular rates to
parties of considerable s:ze from this city
to Black Hawk's watch tower. If that
service could be so arranged that people
would not be afraid of being left by the
early departing motor, or if the arrange
ments could be made such as to render
the time of tbe trip to tbat place as short
as possible, and tbe trip itself as pleasant
as possible, there would be an increase of
patronage for that resort. Tbe thing that
encourages street car patronage is attea
:ion to these matters which are ordinarily
neglected. When the means of pleasure
:ire offered to people they are not ordi
narily slow about taking advantage of tbe
(hance. A coolin? evening r.de of tn
Lour at a nominal price, a chance to gocn
tn impromptu picnic at a low fare and at
tbe minimum cf inconvenience and time
ii transit, these are things that will ap
real to tbe people who are heated and
weary with business and the burden of
tie day. The thing is worth trying at
Apropos of these suggestions, it may
bi; stated that Manager Liuderbick in
formed an Akgcs representative the other
evening that he had just such plans in
contemplation, and that aa soon as he had
tte Milan road equipped for electricity
v said run summer evening excursions to
the tower as late as midnight. Doubt
lets he would do the same on the main
lites to Moiine if sufficient inducement
wt re offered. The tri-city system has
abundance of trailers seme TO in a'.I
ani C' uld very readily carry out tie Dem
ocat's excellent idea, cr give it a trial at
