Oat Holme Citizen contradicts
Mtateanent That Electric Cars are
To Fast and Molds the .Syndicate
Is All Ulcht.
In Thursday evening's Moiine Dispatch
appeared a statement from a correspond
dent that the way the electric cars
whizzed through the streets "was an out
rage," and also attacked the tri-city
company for not putting proper guards
on its cars. The latter com plaint was
all right, and as soon as the rearrange
ment of the Moiine avenue car houses is
completed so that the cars can be accom
modated with the guards they will, no
doubt be provided. The guards came
with tba cars and it is probably the in
tent ion of the company at least It should
be to use them.
However, the person who made the
complaint in Moiine about the speed of
the electric cars was very likely one of
the same people who lesi than a month
month ago were condemning the horse
car transfer at the Moiine end, urging
the council to insist that the electric cars
be put on. Now he has cot his wish and
the electric car is too swift for him. That
he does not voice the sentiment of the
more sensible people of Moiine, however,
is shown by a correspondent in last
night's Dispatch, who says:
I read in last night's issue of
your paper a contribution, the substance
of which was a straight kick at the elec
tric street car syndicate. Now who, in
our little city, but must admit tbat we
have been greatly benefitted by this very
company? If there be any such iust let
him turn back in his diary, say 10 years,
when the so called street car connection
with Rock Island was controlled by local
capital. It then took about an hour of
riding in a little "bob-tailed," dirty car
to make the trip, and you paid 10 cents
for the privilege. The fare is now re
duced to one half and the time to one
third, and you ride in a far more pleasant
car. If we move along too fast for your
contributor, be hsd probably better go
where the procession is slow enough for
him. The most of us undoubtedly want
to keep within hearing of the band wagon.
True, there are times that things occur
through the negligence or carelessness of
employes tbat are unpleasant for the pas
sengers, but are they more frequent than
of old, when compared with the addi
tional number of employes? Then, too,
it is the experience of the writer (and he
has used I tie line a great deal during the
past fifteen years, much of that time
going daily to Rock Inland), that the best
way to right such matters is to bring
them personally to the notice of the man
agement. This can easily be done if ycu
ride enouah to pay Jou for bothering
yourself about it, and it can certainly
leave a better feeling on the part of those
who are serving us.
' The writer, who has no interest in this
matter further than a desire to see all
possible progress in our community,
would like to know if there is anyone
tbat agrees with bim?
To these remarks the Dispatch adds:
The letter above seems to rtflect the
majority of public sentiment in Moiine.
The people are few who believe that the
cars are making faster time than the pub
lie convenience requires. The average
man or woman of today rides cot as a
pastime, but in order to go quickly . The
rider desires to make Lis trip with the
best speed attainable with comfort and
with safety to himself and for the general
public. So there is no general complaint
in regard to the rapidity with which the
syndicate cars tiavel.
On the whole. Moiine is in hearty sym
pathy with the syndicate people, giving
them credit for great enterprise, and
recognizing the fact that they have suffi
cient faith in cur future to spend money
here that they cannot expect to get back
in a hurry.
W03IEX AS CONDUCTORS.
A. Radically Xrw Role for the
Fair Hex Will he Moon IVcar a
I'Dirorm and Jci k the Bell Flinch.
Sinee the innovation of the street 'car
conductor in Rock Island, along with the
other features of modern convenience
and comfort, which the tri city syndi
cate has provided, any thing that tends of
the nature of street car etiquette will be
read with more or less interest. The
Chicago Tribune of yesterday contained
an extended notice, suitably illustrated, of
the probability of the introduction of
lady conductors on a new line of cars to
be introduced in the metropolis before
the opening of the world's fair, in which
Women as conductors! That means a
revolution in street car etiquette. The
sex that has long suffered irom man's
rudeness and domineering ways will now
have a chance to get even.
Women, pretty young women with
tight fitting, braided jackets, and jaunty
little caps, could not De rude under any
circumstances. It would be unbecoming,
hence out of the question.
"We do not propose to man our cars
with lady conductors simply to create a
sensation, said James L. Dyer yester
day. Mr. Dyer is the designer of tbe
new Columbian coach which it is prom
ised will soon be a familiar feature of
street scenes in Chicago.
Lady conductors are a necessity to
us owing to tbe city ordinances, he con
tinued. "There is an ordinance to the
effect tbat no vehicles can be run on the
boulevards unless there be a lady
aboard. I suppose the object of tbe oid
inance was to keep the boulevards for
pleasure ridiog, and to secure this a gen
tleman is supposed to be out riding with
"Will you secure the handsomest wo
men you can find for your conductors?"
"We won't have any homely ones if
we can help it, said Mr. Dyer with a
wink. "There is no reason in the world
why a woman should not engage in the
lezitimate occupation of street-car con-.
ductor. There are women lawyers, wo
men doctors, women clergymen; women
are gaining an entrance to tbe ranks of
toilers everywhere. Why not in the
' Oar oars will be fitted up in palatial
style, fit for the occupancy of any lady,
and we shall maintain them as such."
"Don't you apprehend criticism of your
"Of course, but we will see that our
women conductors maintain their proper
decorum and turn iu all tbe nickels in due
form. Women hav m-resenee than they
are ordinarily given credit for."
Mr. Dyer does not think it will be
necessary to put in conspicuous places
- . WILL PLBASS KOT COLS
No young woman will be accepted as
conductor, he says, unless she is proof
against tbe smiles of the other sex.
Who knows but what this experiment
if successful in Caicsgo, may lead to the
same innovation in the tri city cars? Tbe
tri-cities may thank Chicago for street
railway improvements less contemplated
locally speaking, than the lady of the
av raor Flfer Can't Come.
It will be remembered that among tbe
arrangements for tbe County Farmers' In
stitute picnic on Big island, August 25, a
committee composed of Messrs T. S.
Silvis and Howard Wells was appointed
to extend an invitation to Ooyernor Fifer
to attend. Tbe committee performed its
duty and this morning received tbe fol

III. Oeutleinen: la reply to your
kind favnr of tbe 25th inst., I desire to
say that I will not be able to attend tbe
Farmers' picnic near Rock Island on the

extended notice of the private excursion
to Alaska in which Rock Inland is largely
On two special Northern Pacific cars
attached to tbe express from the east
the following laoies and gentlemen, who
conetitu.! a private excursion psrty
bound for Alaska, arrived here today.
This oarty is under the chiiernnsge o-'
Mr. C II Davis, a well known St. Paul
railway man. With the exception of one
or two, all the gentlemen in tbe party are
lumbermen, amongst their number being
F. Weyerhauser, of Rock Iiland, who is,
according to all accounts, tbe tichest
lumberman in the world.
In conyersation with one ot the tourists
a World reporter learned that the trip
out from Winneoeg hsd been a most de
lightful one. The only place where the
pleasure was in any way marred was at
Bsuff. and tbe cause of the complaint
was that tbe Raymond-Wbitcomb Alaska
excursion party had engaged, all the hotel
accommodations in sight. The Davis
party were, therefore, compelled to stop
on their cars. On their return from
Alaska they go home by way of the
Northern Pacific and Yellowstone park.
