Improvement In the Service
Oa receipt of the telegram from Man-,
aging Director D. II. Louderback, of
tbe Davenport & Rck Island street rail
way company, Wednesday, announcing
tbe signing of tbe preliminary papers
merging the syndicate electric system and
that of tbe Davenport Ceniral electric
railway, and tbe fuct of Dr. VP. L.
Allen heretofore managing director in the
latter becoming a director in tbe consoli
dated company, Tiik Argcs sent Mr.
Louderback a letter asking for such of
the details as to tbe general effect of tbe
change on the tri-city system as could be
In his reply Mr. Louderback says:
"There will be no cbange in management,
but by having Dr. A.len and his associ
ates as stockholders, and the doctor as
director, we can have Uie benefit of their
advice on the ground. Oar intention is
to arrange a system f loops that will be
of much benefit to tha riding public of
Davenport, all of which will be duly ex
plained later on. Our aim is to do the
bett we can for all three cities. There
will be no changes ia Rock Island or
Moline, except in all cases such as look
to the betterment of tbe service, and to
guard the small detai s that go to make
it perfect j ust as soon as construction
work and paving stops so that we can
have a chance.
"We are hn'ryine; i he curves for tbe
Milan line and loops all we can. They
have to be made especially for tbe places
where tbey are to be used."
Mr. Louderback also adds in response
to an inquiry with reference thereto, that
he will remaiu as managing director unless
other business matters interfere too much,
which he do6 not think will be the case
when the ;? once permanently
fixed as the company expects to have it,
and the Jong aimed for permanent policy
The assurances contained in Mr. Loud
erback's letter that thee i3 to be no change
in the management of the tri-city system
and that tbe lines in Rxk Island and Mo
line are to remain unchanged will be wel
come intelligence to all appreciative of
such improvements as look to public ad
vancement, have become admirers of the
syndicate for its enterprise, pluck and
confidence in our tri-.ci y community.

Tne Moline Republic.in-Journal of last
evening contains tbe fo. lowing:
Oae of tbe most important deals that
has ever affect d the mtterial interests of
ibis io. nW" r.rvr under consideration
by two railroad corporu lions with lines
ci.Uriut; iu llic ihice ciiies. TheRepub-iican-Journal
bs r.oted trom time to time
tne proposition of certain rich men in
Sco't county to bridt'e the Mississippi
above Moline for the purpose of enabling
Mi pr-dnf-e raiser or it at fertile section
to reach the Moline market direct and
tiU ud Vantage of the higher prices paid
for their products here, :nstead of divid
ing iiie prorits of their toil with the mid
dleman of Davenport. One of the roa

thf intprent of the bridge enterprise was

Rapids to Davenport.
T'lif :: r , , - j.-.. now has takcu a
much mure iuiDortaat tura than wss at
brat anticipated. The B. , C. R. & N. is
aLxious to get into Molin-j and Liinoia.
So is the C . B. & Q. equtlly, if not more,
anxious to get into Iowa it this point,
that being one of their long cherished
aims. It is now stated oa the be6t of
authority that these corporations are
ready and willing to co-operate with the
aforementioned capitalists in the building
of the bridge across the river at a point
immediately above Moline. The river
men are fighting the enterprise as they do
everything that is liable lr cut down river
comaerce and do away with poky meths
ods of transportation. Btt it is believed
there will be no trouble in securing a
charter from the government.
The bridge will be made for
both railroads and wagons. Of
course tbe plans are L8 yet only
vaguely fixed in the minds of its pro
jector, but it is not improbable that the
bridge will form a Y similtr to tbe one at
Rock Island, tbe stem being tbe high
bridge over the river channel The de
sirability of these railroads getting across
the river is quite apparent. At present
tbe B . C R. & 2s. is pacing the Rock
Island for switching cars f-om Moline to
Davenport and the C . B. & Q. bas to
transfer across the river at Rock Island
or send the freight around t y Burlington.
The Q has also attempted to get across
the river at Clinton but without avail,
and this is the best point, connecting
tbem as it does directly with the Illinois
system and Bt. Louis. Tho outcome of
the negotiations will be awaited with interest.

. STRUGGLES FOR A WIFE.

Mchnld, of till t. Ity, had to Coatcnd
An I'nwiilioft- loth-r-in-Iaw.
One week ago last night A. F. Schmid,
of this city and Miss Laura Otto, of Davs
en port, were married at the Broadway
church in this city by Rev. W. 8. Mar
quis. The Davenport Times discloses a sen
sational side of the course of love in this
case as follows, and while the story is
interesting, either facts of the actual cere
mony are distorted, or the couple were
married twice: "
Many have had unpleasant experiences
in securing a wife, bur possibly few, if
any, have been so roughly handled by a
prospective mother-in-law as bas A. F.
Schmid, of Rock Island, who on last
Thursday married Miss Laura Otto, of
this city. For some time before the
marriage young Schmid paid close atten
tion to Miss O.to, so much so that it dis
pleased the would-be mother-in-law who,
by the way, is a fortune teller residing on
West Fifth street between Myrtle and
Marquette streets. The lover was run
through something of a torturing ma
chine, and it might have been for the pur
pose of testing the nerve of the aspirant.
At any rate he has the eirl and whether
the wife's mother has obtained satifaction
or not is unknown. Among the almost
innumerable unpleasant receptions are
such things as having the door closed in
his face. ; Th young lady being locked
in a room, to which the lover, however,
had a secret key. The old lady at one
time in some unaccountable means
poured water in his ear, whether it was
done while be was asleep with his head on
the young lady's snculder is also not
known, but she flooded his head. On one
occasion she offered him 500 to leave the
city forever, and again she locked the girl
up, claiming that she intended poisoning
her unless she severed her lovable rtla-.
tions with tbe Roek Islander. At last
this kind of treatment became too varied
and painful and as the young people in
tended to get married anyway they de
cided that it would be useless to endeavor
to convert the mother.
Thy struck on a plan which they car
ried to a successful ending on last Thurs
day night. The plan was for him to leave
the city after having a Sx d up falling out
with the girl, by which she was to return
all the presents that her lover had given
her. The mother was told that he was go
ing far, far away and that before going he
intended .givibg Miss Laura a surprise
party, but that their home was en
tirely inadequate to the demands so.
pretendingly, they" rented a .furnished
bouse at 1621 Harrison street for the
one night only . The mother was jubi
lant to think she was going to get rid of
"the young vagabond" (in her opinion)
and readily consented to have the party.
Every preparation was made and a large
number of friends responded to the invi
tations, and all was well with the mother
who was soon to be shocked and heart
wrecked. At a given time the couple
walked out in the middle of the floor
and the minister stepped up to them, and
in as few words as possible pronounced
them man and wife, to the utter aston
ishment of all, and the clairvoyant mother
almost went crazy, and there was a gen
eral scramble and a sudden leaving of the
home by the irate mother-in-law. but the
yoang people remained under their own
shelter, and now tables have turned, and
the son-in-law and daughter are trying to
conciliate matters and induce the high
n morird foMier 'o say like manv othfra
wbeauistu late too help themselves:
"Wti:, children, just so yoa don't do it
Mr. and Mrs. Schmid are happily
housed at their home, where all their
