THE STKEET RAILWAYS.
. , :: ' '
Messrs. M itchell and Buckingham
In the City.
I'lpanetl WlthSthe dqalpmcnt and the
City's rewih Other Hyndlete
Messrs. J. J. Mitchell and Clarecce
Buckingham, of Chicago, two of the
heaviest stockholders in the Davenport &
R cfc Island 6treet railway company, and
who, withD.H. Louclerback, are sole
owners of the Rock Island & Milan road
nd Black Hawk's tower, arrived from
Chicago this morning and are putting in
tte day inspecting the plant, forjthe im
provement and maintenance of which
they have been putting up bo liberally
ever since purchasing it. They thought
tney would ran down and see what was
coming of all.they bad been putting in here.
An Argcs representative met them on
a car coming down from Moline and ask
in?.them what they thought of the service,
Mri Mitchell replied, "There has been a
wonderful improvement since we were
lan here, and I can truly say that we are
very proud of our system since the elec
tric equipment has been put in."
The reporter added that the people of
Rick Island were equaliy proud of the
system the company had given them.
"I hope so," answered Mr. Mitchell.
''e have endeavored to deserve their
good will, and I can say in all candor
and without undue egotism I hope, that
no city has better street car facilities than
tbtse three cities now have."
' I obeerve that your city is improving
greatly, too, said Mr. Mitchell. You are
carrying on a 6ystem of street improve
ments here that is highly commendable.
Indeed, there is a wonderful advance
ment since we were last here. With all
these evidences of improvement and
prosperity we are equally pleased, for you
mustkeovwe are dee p'y inter s'.ei here
as much so in the three cities perhaps, as
any corporation you Lave.-1
When Spencer tquare was reached,
Messrs Mitchell and Buckingham both
eselaimtd what a beautiful transforma
tion had taken place, and as they left the
c ir at the Harper house for dinner Mr.
Mttcueli remarked "that speaks volumes
for the good taste and progressive
tendency of Rock Islaad "
For several days rumors have been
prevalent of a determination on the pirt
cf the syndicate to dispose of its lines in
the tLrte cities, so much having come up
to ann.iy and discourage the enterprising
OTctrs. :he purport of such rumors being
that a locU company of Rck Island and
Moline capitalists had made an oer for
tne lines on th's side of the river and the
bridge line, while the lines in Davenport
were to be sold to the Davenport Central
Electric road of which Dr. W. L. Allen
is president. When questioned on the
matter last evening Managing Director
Louderback said, "I dont know
as there is anything in any sikq remarks.
I have made a proposition to dispose of
our interests here and I don't know what
will come of it. If I could sell out all
we own here it would doubtless be as
good a thing as I could do for my friends
whose interests I waB sent here to look
after. " It :s sinotrely to be hoped noth
ing will come of any such negotiations if
auy are being made, for to lose the Chi
cago syndicate would be as bard a blow
to the three cities, in the midst cf their
advancement as could be struck. With
other people in the control of the system,
our people who do not already real ze
what is being done for Rock Island, would
wake up to a realization of to what an
extent each of the three cities is indebted
to these pushing Chicago men, whose
money we have had the benefit of
without stinf for three years.
The Letter That Came lat?.
Boss Wells attempts to excuse the
shortcomings of his service as-uming that
the letter concerning the 24 hours' delay
of which in reaching its dcstintalon in the
jity was mentioned in last night's Argcs,
was only a circular and of no importance.
In the first place the letter was contained
ii a sealed envelope, much as the post
master claims to know of its contents and
was of considerable importance. In the
second place no matter what its impor
tance it was entitled to prompt delivery
and it was simply due to carelessness that
it did not have it, and no attempt on He
boss' part to insinuate or insult the reci
pient as was the aim of the article in this
morning's Union, will excuse the weakness
in the service which is accountable for its
failure to properly reach its destination.
It is nevertheless interesting to know that
the postmaster considers the contents of
letters as of bearing upon the prompt'
ness witn which they should be delivered.
Carrier Scott called at the house where
the delayed letter belonged last evening,
confessed that it was due to a mistake that
it was not delivered before, and made a
very manly explanation-of the, cause of
the delay. Mr. Scott, too, expressed &
rializition of the importance of the let
ter when It was explained to. him. But
he bad not reported to the postofnee then.
Tint Annual Picnic.
The journeymen tailors' union, of Dav
enport and Rock Island, will hold their
first annual picnic at Washington garden,
Buaday, July 26. All union organizt
tions are invited to join in the parade and
picnic. Parade at 1:30, p. m.
, lAKMi Tint ON A WHEEL. 1
C. A. Boyle's Junrney lrn Wells,
31inn to rittKborg an a Bicycle.
C A. Boyle, wbo is making the iourney
from Wells, Minn., to Pittsburg, Pa, on
bicycle, stopped in the city last night
to purchase a few additions to his ward
robe, which by ihe way is not very . ex
tensive, consisting solely of a 10-pound
bundle which be carries strapped in front
of bis saddle. Mr. Boyle left Welle,
Minn., on July 4th, coming direct to
Lena, 111., where he visited a week with
friends reaching thisjeity late yesterday
afternoon. The best run be has made so
far was from Lena to Sterling a- distance
of 57 miles, which he covered in less than
10 hours. He is making the trip sohly
for the benefit of his health in the hopes
of improving which he had gone ito
Minnesota. He wished to make -the trip
back home on a wheel, but wai told by
physicians that he could not survive the
journey. From his present appearances,
however, he is in the pink of condition,
and when questioned by an Argus re
porter last evening, said that he had his
appetite right with him and had never
felt better in his life. He left this city
this morning for Aledo. where he will
visit a short time with friends after
which he will continue bis journey east
stopping at Chicago, Fort Wayne and
Cleveland, Ohio. At the latter city be
will be met by the Keystone cycling club,
of Pittsburg, which wi 1 usher him into
the city where he expects to arrive about
Monday Mrs E'.iza Dorance filed a pe
tition ia equity in the district court at
Davenport against her husband, Capt. D.
F. Dorance.asking separate maintenance.
Stie states that she was united in mar
riage to the defendant on Dec, 23, IsSG.
Soon after the marriage ceremony her
husbaud began to mistreat her, calling
her vile names and threatening to throw
her out of the house and to kill her. In
the spring of 1;S9 he struck her with his
fist acd tad their danghter not interferred
would Lave done her further injury. Since
the autumn of 1S90 they have occupied
different apartments in their home in
Le Claire, but the plaintiff alleges that
she is now aftaid to live any longer in
the same house with her husband. She
further charges that the defendant is col
lectiug rent from property belonging to
her and using acd converting the money
to his own use. She further charges that
in January, 1S90, her husband borrowed
S1.60O from her to pay in part for a piece
of real estate, agreeing to deed it to her.
He has not done ihisjicr has he repaid
the money borrowed. She therefore asks
the court to give.her a decree of separate
maintenance and that the defendant be
ordered to pay 300 for the cost of the
suit and also 50 per month alimony. A
writ of attachment was issued against
certain property owned by the defendant
to prevent his disposing of it before the
case is settled.
