Lord, we prav that the excursion train
going east on the Hannibal & St. Joseph
railway this morning may not run off the
track and kill any church member that
may be on board. Church members on
Sunday excursions are not in a condition
to die; and in addition to this it is em
barrassing to a minister to officiate at the
funeral of a member of the church who
has been killed on a Sunday eicursion.
Keep the train on the track and preserve
it from any calamity, that all church
members among the excursionists may
h-ve opportunity for repentance, that
their fins may be forgiven; we ask it for
Christ's safce. Amen . "

Incidental to the paving of Moline ave
nue there are to be some important
improvemeuts in the Rock Island depot
propt rty. Relative to this matter a num
ber of conferences have been held of late
between the mayor and street and alley
committee, and the railroad officials, and
between the latter and the contractors,
Edwards & Walsh, which resulted yester
day in an agreement which has the
appearance of bringing satisfactory
results all around. There has been
considerable dispute as to the en
croachment of the Rock Island railroad
company's tracks on the ayenue, the
property holders on the south side rightly
holding that the railroad should vacate
any portion of the street it was occupy
ing, and bear also its equal proportion of
the cost of the improvement. Vice-President
H. A. Parker and Roadmaster S.
Baker, of the Rock Island, spent yester
day in the city, and after holding a num
ber of consultations with the municipal
authorities, it was agreed that the com
pany should vacate the part of the street
it was occupying voluntarily, and be per
mitted in turn to lay a third track
from the Brooks' crossing viaduct
east to Moline. This is from the yard
limits and does not come this side of the
crossing. It will occupy vacated ground,
and the company is in great need of the
accommodations thus sought. Further
more, the company is to raise the depot
and other buildings about it to the estab
lished grade, and pave all the space be
tween. including the court where the earn
riages, "buses and wagons now drive in .
The company is also to pave eight feet on
the north side of the street alcng the de
pot premises. This, with the 16 feet abans
doned by the company along the avenue
will put the Rock Island railroad proper
ty in good condition, and whde the public
will appreciate so much for improvement
it will not be entirely satisfied until the
Rock Island road rnns into a union depot
in Rock Island. This will come sooner
or later, and when it does the present
depot property can no doubt be utilized
by the company.
