"Some of feu people who have been
here right along for the past three jeare
oaght to go away for a year or so and
then come back. If it don't open your
eyes I am very much mis: alien. I tell
you what, iht people heie don't begin to
realize what a transformation has taken
place. Rock Island is getting a reputa
lion all over the country for the rapid
strides it is makiag in the way of im
provements. We heard of Spencer square
oat in listings, Neb., atd we beard of
the paved streets and rapid transit, but
let me say to you, you have got to come
here to see for yourself, for seeing is be
lieving. I want to eay jast one thing too,
and it tray be something many of your
citlzt ns have not thought ab iut. The street
car syndicate is the ciuse of a'.l the im
provements you have eij)ftd and are
enjoying. I can see this, for when I left
here three years ago, the Cnicago syndi
cate had just bought iu and now on my
return I cm see the results."

The opinion held by Mr. Mclntire is
also bora out in part in the following
communication to the Dubuque Telegraph,
which the papers of other Iowa cities are
copying with comments of a commenda

that of our own city, Duouqne in the
above mentioned period, is due to the
construction of electric street car roads
more than to any other agency will scarce
ly admit of a doubt. The work of cover

sides of the city is beyond question the
result of the splendid car service given

The suburbs on all sides and extendine
for miles from the central part of the eity
are reached by 11 distinct car lines com
prising apwards of 40 aniles of track.
These lines all connect at a central point
in the city. Csch line is thoroughly
equipped with its own cars, operated on
schedule time, which is observed to the
Transportation thus improved has so
minimized the difference in living one
mile or tbrce or four miles from one's
place of business that since the advent of
the electrie car thousands have taken ad
vantaee of the comparatively cheap prop
erty thus made available and have secured
beautiful locations and built elegant
8ome two years ago tbe first electric
line was operated to North Des Moines,
three and one-half miles from the city.
It was built oa an earth grade through a
timber country. Today tbe entire dis
tance is built solid with fiae houses, tbe
streets all paved and cement curbs and

of commerce, civilization and thrift, and

At Sioux City three years ago was con
structed a cable line extending three and
a half miles out frcm tbe city, over a
roueh rolling prairie. Tbe entire dis
tance tbe hills were graded and the gorges
filled. Today elegant bouses, highly
improved streets, and largely increased
material for the assessor are ths results.
A friend of mine last week met a gentle
man from Burlington and put tbe usual
question, "How is it in your town?"
Tbe gentleman answered: "Why, sir,
we have awakened to new life in Bur
lington. We have electric cars in opera
tion tbere now and we are all buildine
fine houses and moving to the suburbs."

as far as they have been built, it is tqual
ly true that much bas been lost to tbe
public and to tbe car companies tbrough
their neglect to extend their lines and en
courage s iburban improvements. Can it
be our street car companies are we 'ded
to the delusion, that you must first build
the suburb and the street car will comet
or that you must build tbe city as long
as you desire to make it and have things
in good shape to accommodate a street
car companj t Can tbey not realize the
fact that the construction of a road giv
ing a good service is certain to result in
increased value to their franchiser Evi
dently oar electric street car men do not
see things in that light and object to
building beyond permanently improved
localities. In this they display an on
pardonable lack of enterprise and very
poor judgment and add another to the
many instances in which Dubuque's best
interests have suffered through what
might be termed stoughton bottle enters
prise, and through which her choice nat
ural resources and tbe interests of many
of her more deserviasr and enterprising
citizens have been heavily taxed that
Dubuque might be abreast of the times.
Extend your lines. Citizen.
Rock Island, however, has no "kick
coning" in tbe matter of extension of tbe
lines. The street car company bas done
its share. If tbe street car lines are not
properly extended and improved here, it
will be the fault of the council. If they
are not built np in tbe suburbs and made
to pay it will be the fault of the property
holders. It is first the d ity of the street
railways to extend, next the duty ot the
council to grant tbe right to txtend and
next the doty of property holders to build
np tbe territoiy on the extended lines.
