The trailers attached to the bridge elec
tric cars were lighted by electricity for
the first time Saturday night and the mo
tor car and trailer presented a brilliant
appearance. It would be hard to find a
prettier train than that which Mr. Lou-,
derbark is now running on the bridge line
branch of his system.
Material is be ing distributed on Fifth
6treet and Fourth avenue by the Daven
port & Rock Island railway company for
relaying the track on that system in
obedience to Aid. Bladel's resolution,
thereby enabling thn company to run
ts Seiand arenas and Fourth avenue
cars through to the saw mill alternately.
The Rock Island Plow works are pre
paring for the annual shut-down for re
pairs abaut August 1. The works gen
erally stop in the spring, but this season
cas Deen so busy as not to permit of
time. The year has been one of the
most prosperous and active in the history
of the company, full crews having been
kept constantly busy.
One of the Davenport open cars used
as a trailer on the Milan line, left the
track twice while coming down the hill
from the tower at 6 o'clock last evening.
The passengers received a little scare
but that was all in falling over each
other trying to get away from the car,
which was finally left alongside of the
track to prevent any further mishaps.
An electiic motor collided with a horse
car on Scott street in Davenport yester
day evening, injuring a lady from Moline
and throwing Mrs. Capt. John O'Connor,
of this city, in each a position that she
sustained a severe sprain of her left ankle.
A number of other passengers were
thrown about in a reckless manner, but
no o:htrj were injured. The horse car
was pretty badly broken up.
Zich Einfeldt, the farmer on the rivtr
road east of Moline, had a peculiar ex
perience Friday. Be discharged one of
his hands because the latter upset a load
of hay, whereupon the other three, rep
resenting the entire industrial force in
the field, threw down their pitchforks and
"walked out" with their hands in their
pockets. Zich repented and did his
best to get them to return, but they
wouldn't do it, and as farm hands are
just now about as scarce as hens' teelh,
Mr. Einfeldt is in a bad fix. The men
claim they were kept working too late at
The horse cars have been taken off the
Moline end of the Third avenue line of

can be completed the old red line will be
itself again, with through traffic, though
improved beyond any expectation. The
company has been using the horse car et A
for that class of its old stock of driver,
who were fit for nothing else. Some of
these got above their natural calling whi n
the v cot as high as a horse car driver,
and the company is well rid of theta.
The only present difficulty Is that one of

During the trial of the cases against
certain Moline persons charged wi h
gambling which have occupied the atten
tion of the county court for the past
three weeks there have been a number of
exciting tilts between counsel at d
there have been a number of smothered
sensations. Not only has abuse been
heaped upon the attorneys both direct y
and indirectly, but slurs have been cat
upon the court trying the case, and in
tbe court room there have been very
plainy expressed differences of opinion
between court and counsel.
Another sensational incident occurre d
this morning during the trial of Perry
Me rr j man, charged with gambling for
money. It was supposed by the attor

case was all in Saturday evening and th it
the arguments would be begua tbe firt

court ted y, however. State's Attorney
Sturireon wished to introduce some new
evidence in the Merryman case. Tb s
was objected to on the part of Willian
McEairy, one of the defendant's atto
neys. on tbe ground that the court had
on Sit urday evening declared that ti e
case was closed. "I did not say it wus
closed," replied the court. "You did."'
said Mr. McEuiry . "I did not." reiter
ated Judge Adams. "You lie!" said Mr.
McEniry; "box fine me if you wish
to," and he turned and walked out of tl.e
court room saying as ha so did. that te
withdrew from the case as did the ass
ciate counsel, and the defendant was left
to plead his own case.
The case went to the jiry at 11 o'clock
without a plea for the defense, after
which court ad jsurned. It is not likely
that any more cases will be taken up in
fore next week.
Of course it is the General belief tht.t

in that direction at a late hour this after
