HOW IT HAPPENED.
A Valuable Discovery ftesnita Frem
an Aceldent Why car ar 1 1tnnnlus
Under Broeka Croaslnar Vladnet.
Ham UivU' Explanation.
Accidental discoveries are sometimes
aaiOLg the mooi potent to man's advanco
ment. This hss been true of some of our
grea'est invention-, anl m d; of the ad
vantages we now enjoy are traces bio to
the development of Ideas founded on
casual observation. A striking illustra
tion of this obseivatiin is af
forded in the fact that c&rs are
now running under the Brooks' crossing
viaduct. For weeks the Davenport &
Rock Island Street ra lway syndicate h9s
been suffering the pecuniary loss of
transferring its through passensers to a
horse car before going under the bridge
Decause or tne rear that there was not
room enough under the viaduct for the
cers to clear. One or two experiments
were made and the trolley poles bowed
so that the wheel at the end of the po'e
was thrown off the wire and in conse
quence the power seized. The wire was
somewhat adjusted, but the electricians
were still in doubts as to the practical
every-day running of the cars over this
portion of the track. Many solutions of
the problem were proposed, discussed and
in turn abandoned. Supt. Wilkrd. of the
ThoBcson-IIoutton company, wrestled
with the surged until he was' weary;
Managing Director Louderback, of the
Davenport & Rock Island Rtilway com
pany, lay awake nights and thought it
over; General Superintendent Schnitger
had a serious attack of insomnia on the
streegth of it; Supt. of Motive Power
Frederick, lost his appetite, so great was
his brain trouble, while Assistant Super
intendent II ill eat out in front of toe car
houses on Moline avenue acd
whittled up a wagon tongue, in strug
gling with the matter. Finally the com
pany's experts decided that one of three
things was necessary if the eiee'ric cars
were to run through to Moline on the old
line the present cirs must be sent back
to St. Louis and lower ones ordered in
their p'ace, or the cars in use must go up
and cross over the track or the v aduct
must be raised. This latter alternative wa?
decided upon as affording the best way
out of the aifSculty. The railroads were
applied to and the Rock Island courte; us
lv agreed to raise its biidge, while the
Burlington, with equal public spirit, said
it would follow suit. This brought peace
to the distressed railwav oeonle
but the thought of the delay occasione i
by such an operation remsined. One day
last week relief that was sweet and last
ing came, and with it the exemplification
of the theory that a:cidtntal discoveries
are ortimes valuable. A motorman
on a red line electric car, after pro
ceeding as near to the viaduct as he c. u!d
go to meet the horse car transfer, let his 1
brake off wh le be went to the rear of the
car to change the gites, etc , when to I is
surprise the cr sorted ai d before he
could eain the front pMform it shot
around the curve and under the bridge.
The trolley kept the wire although the
power circuit hhd Lot been con
nected. But the cr made the run
all right scd was under the via
duct before the mo'.orneer realized
what had happeced. The conductor
too, was almost struck dumb with amaze
ment and for a moment tbey looked at
each other in silent itqiiry as to the best
move next. They didu'i know whether
they had better go ahead or back up, or
whether they bad not better desert the car
and fiee, leaving lie company to make
the startling discovery of a car on the
upper side of the viaduct. Finally they
determined to get back on e west sicte
as soon as possible if they had to push
the car by main force. The thought nf
going back by motive power donned cn
the motorneer, and reversing his trolley
pole, he applied tin circuit and the car
glided through as smoothly as jou plevse.
Toe circumstances were reported at the
car houses, and the cars have been rui
ning since Sunday as far as the Cam
Planter works in Moline, and tbey will
be ruuning to the end of the red line this
week probably. This is the s.ory
Sim Divis tells and hence it
must be so. On the other hand, how
ever, a steel trolley pole has been intro
duced on one of the red cars and is giving
much satisfaction, especially in running
under the bridge, while the poles on the
other cars on that line have been turned
upside down to do away with the bow in
the centre, which has heretofore thrown
the trolley wheel off. But the public
does not care as to authenticity. An
important discovery has been made, and
the patrons of the road are getting the
benefit so is the road.
It is to be hoped, nevertheless, that the
railroad companies will not abandon
their determination to raise the bridges.
It would be an improvement, with the
street cars out of the question.

concerning Rock Island's public square ;
Rock Island has the flest public square
of any city of its size in the United Sutes.

enterprise and artistic taste of Mr. Wil

east to west and from north to south,
meeting at right arg e in the cen'er and
two running from opposite corners and
crossirg in the centT. App oxim te
toe junction or all these waiss is a line
fountain surrounded by vases filled with
rare tropical plmts. A little to the right
of this is a drinking fountaiu and on
ei'her side of the walk leading from the
fountain to the grand stand is a figure of
a reclining lion, while theectrarce to the
rand stand is guarded by two marble

gez'ng eastward toward the cradle of
