TROUBLE ABOUT A TRACK.
Tie Cl'T f laveprt Rpsrata m

newed la tke Day.
The feelings of enthusiastic friendliness
between Davenport tnd the B., C. R. &
N. road which were the cutsrrowth of the
advent of that road into Davenport b
virtue ot its purchase of the Davenport,
Iowa & Dakota road, are a little strained
just now. The road has been in ere at
need of better track facilities in Daven-
port,and daring Thursday night put down
rails under cover of darkness. The diffi
culties are thus described:
Friday morning it came to the knowl
edge of the chief of police that some time
Thursday night, between the hours of 11
p. m. and daylight, the trackmen of the
road named had laid a second track on the
north side of its main line west of War
ren street. The Milwaukee has a track
extending along the main line on its north
side almost to that place, and tbis B , C.
R. & N. track leads out of the main line
toward the west a couple of hundred feet
beyond the stub end of tbii Milwaukee
track . It is about 400 feet long, and will
hold 9 or 10 cars.
Some time ago the B.. C. R. & N. was
engaged in taking dirt from bomrV-pits
on the norttfside of its line at the place
where this second track was built Thurs
day night. Water collected in them and
a nuisance was created. The city asked
that no more dirt be removed from those
pits, and the road pleasan ly complied.
Then the city obtained from the owners
of the land abutting on the track there
the rght to dump street cleanings in
those pits and the adjacent low ground
and to use the accretion as a street, ex
tending east and west on the north side
of the B., C R. & N. main line between
Warren and Mill streets. The property
was owned b; M. D. Snyder and the heirs
of the Grant estate, and they readily gave
permission. The fill was mostly made,
though some work of that kind is still in
progress there. When It wss discovered
Friday lhat a gacg of men had laid a track
on this new accretion it was at once be
lieved that the B.C. R. & N. bad stolen
a midnight march on the city.
.General Agent Knapp. of the B , C R.
& N. wss interviewed by a Democrat
man on the matter in the afternoon, lie
said that the B . C-R. & N. is and has
been sadly cramped for yard room, and
that it has fonnd it rjectsary to construct
a second track eomewh r . A reading of
tne ordinance tne otnciaM of the com
pany judged to give teem the right to lv
this track as they did at this place It
was lail at night because it was not prac
ticable to lay it in the dtytime. The
Milwaukee and the B., C. R & N both
use the line tncre u-p to 10 o'clock" p. m.
or after, and the work was delayed until
that boar that traffic might not be im
peded He denied that a fores of men
was imported, as claimed by the city, and
secrettd m the lumberyard till night, but
said the construction train and tools and
material came in early in the daytime and
stood on a tiding till night, and that the
regular trackmen who live and are oper
ated from here did the work. He denies
that there was any attempt at secrecy on
the part of the road, and says lhat it was
not considered necessary to ask the city's
leave to do the work because the to id
understood that It bad full right to make
In the afternoon Mayor Ficke callid
together with himself Aid. Smith and
Eckbardt, Chief Kesi-ler, City Attorney
Sharon ard Charles Whitaker, represent
ing the Grant estate, and went into secret
session with them in his office. Mr.
Knapp was also present, but not at this
inner meeting, and soon after left. Aft r
consulting upon the matter, and reading
tbe ordinance granting tne right or way
t the B.. C. R. & N. road, they all went
to tee switch wnose construction is com
plained of, and will make a thorough in
vstigation of tbe premises and all inci
dants in connection with the building of
the offending siding.
At about i o'clock yesterday afternoon
by order of Mayor Ficke and upon the
advice" of City Attorney Sharon, a gang
of men were put to work, with crowbars
and jacks, and every inch of rail and
every tie with tbe exception of half a
dozen that were fast beneath the - car
wheels, were removed. This leaves four
or five freight cars standing upon tbe ie
cently filled ground, and entirely apart
from any track
Mayor Ficke states that to his mind
there was no other conclusion to be drawn
from the company's action than that.it
attempted in tbe dtrkness of night to
steal a march upon the city in being tbe
flret to make use of tbe filled ground, and
that in tbe premises be saw no course
open to the city bdt the one taken .
