What Alderman Oorken Saw and
Heard in Chicago.

Aid . Dan Corfcen &od wife returned
tiday from Chicago, Aid. Corken baving
put in most of Lis time while there
nepecling the fire department system of
that city. he having an especial interest in
matters of this kind (ince Lis identifica
tion with Hock Island's new organization.
He was conducted tl rough the departs
meut of Chicago by Chief Swenie, and
was highly pleased with all that he saw.
In company with the Chicago chief he
called on the firm having the contract for
Rock Island's new wtgon, and found that
it had just left the hsrjds of the painters
and was awaiting the drying of the paint
before shipping. ' It will be shipped
within a week. Chitf Swenie congratu
lated the alderman on the good taste
shown in the selection of a hose
apparatus and stated that Chicago had
ordered 15 similar to it, with a view of
abandoning the old n:el carts. On .hear
ing a description of the Rock Island de
partment headquarters the Chicago chief
said Rock Island und ubtedly would have
as fine a system as there is in the country
Aid. Corken also paid a visit to the
Gamewell fire and police alarm system
and found that tie company since
eecuring the contract here had made
contracts with other cities and was at
tempting to fulfill all and was staving
all the cities, Rock Iiland included, of.
Aid. Corken told the company that Rock
Island would not submit to any unneces-.
sary delay and that the contract must be
complied with at once or the city would
annul the contract. Mr. Corken was
thereupon assured tbt the work in Rock
Island wouM becin at once, and this city
will not suffer because of the fact that
the company has more work on its hands
than it can attend to.
Chief Ramskill is already beginning to
look out for horses. A team was tried
on the hook and ladder truck yesterday,
but after a few blocks' run the horses
proved of too light weight and too short
winded. The depaitment will accept
oolv the best horses that can be had
and these will be found in due time.
This afternoon a fire looking team of
iron grays are being tried on ' the hook
and ladder truck.
The MtNiai pal's Dourer .
Charles E. Harrison, of Davenport,
left yesterday evening for Minneapolis to
join Captain Glazier s exploring ' party
there. Mr. Harrison is the only Dav
enporter in the party and only j lined
them after several inventions from Capt
Glazier and the urgeat request of the
members of the Dave nporl Academy of
Siiences, which borly lie represents. The
party will stay in Minneapolis until Mon
day, when they go by rail to Park Rapids.
At this place thev take ox-teams
for the rest of the distance. They will
be gone about five or six weeks, returning
in the latter part of September. The
purpose of the expedi: ion is to discover
the source of the "Great Father of
Waters." Capt. Glazior does not agree
with the theory of Scioolcraft that the
source is Like Itasca, but that it is seme
lake further up. Hence, his expedition
which is to settle the q iesstion,
"One object of the expedition I am
now organizing," said the captain, "is to
obtain sketches and photographs of
scenery around the so irce of the river.
Also attention will be given to the botany,
zjo'.ogy and gi:ology of the surrounding
country, and additions', information will
be sought. I consider the present the
best season of the y ?ar, owing to the
lowness of the water.'
Jnmpea the Tiaek.
The predicted accident consequent np
the pushing of the trailer on the
ilau road back to the car bains occur
red yesterday shortly after noon. Ex-
enena Silvia, J. T. Ken worthy and others
were goirg home to dinner and riding in
i open car in advance of the motor.
when at 8eventh avenue and Twelfth
street the first car left the track and made
bee line for the buildincs on the south
Side. The Dasseno-era ar.ramhlpri nnf and
r. Silvia left the car iust as it
made a lunge, throwine him in
such a manner, as to painfully wrench
U1B naCK. lrom the tfrYnt nf n-hwh
is still suffering. Supt. Hun-
toon is investigating the cause of the
ifnculty, and to avoid a repetition of it.
the trailer will after Monday be kept in
the rear, as it should be, or abandoned
this side of the barns. It is the purpose
to put in a switch on Nineteenth street,
and until the switches and curves arive
for Seventeenth and Third and Nine
teenth and Third, run the Milan train
around Second avenue from Seventeenth
to Nineteenth and back, switching the
trailer about on the latter street to its
proper place. After the loop is com
pleted the switch will come in handy as
a tur:jut for holding cars.
It would be better under all circum
stances to keep the motor car in advance
hereafter. Indeed, in the interests of
public safety it oueht to be comDulsorv.
Nothing brings satisfactory results which
is run backwards or contrary to
established principles. This may be one
of the reasons why the old Central road
in Davenport, which deliberately and per
sistently run its cars on the left hand
side of a double track instead of the right,
did not succeed better. In such cs'H-s as
in this matter of mnning electric trains
backward, there is a duty incumbent upon
municipalities to enforce the laws of
usage and safety.

lirious condition and after being per-'
saaded by some friends to return home,
while on the way she attempted to throw
heiseH in front of a passing C. B. & Q.
switch engine and was rarely rescued by
ner friends from being crushed beneath
the wheels. Her strange actions are said
to be due to domestic troubles.
