The Trouble Between the if., V, It.
4i X. una i he City f Davenport
The trouble between the B., C. It. &
N. road, incident to the road's having
stolen a march on the city and taken pos
session of a piece ot track it desired, in
the night, has been amicably adjusted.
The Democrat sys of the settlement:
President Ives, of the B.. C. R & N
road, with several other officials of the
line, were in Davenport yesterday, and
in company with Mavor Firke, Cily At
torney Sharon, Citv Engineer Murray and
.hcRhardt, ISeyer. Klug and D.
Park hurst, spent most of the afternoon
in investigating the track differences in
the western part of the city . , After look
ing over the ground thoroughly the par
ty returned to the office or Mayor Ftcke.
wnere the terms or agreement were put
in writing. They are considered very
lavorabJe to the city
In consideration of the city giving its
consent to the company's laying the de
sired sidetrack, the railroad company
agrees to deed to the city for street pur
poses a strip 60 feet wide from Mill to
Centennial street, or about 13 blocks in
length. The railroad company owns a
strip of land between the two streets
named, varying in width from 300 to 500
feet and including part of Hall's island.
As most of the strip thus deeded to the
city will require filling before being in
shape for use, the company offers to do
half the filling.
The company also agrees to place
ront street in good conuition from War
ren to Mill street, grading and macadam
izing it at ns own pense
The city is also given the right to open
three 60 foot streets scross the real estate
the ompany owns between Mill and
Centennial streets, whenever it may wish
to do so, and for this puroose may also
cross the company's tracks whenever nec
essary. The right to lay aay sewers
across the same properly to tmpty into
the river is also conceded, and there are
other conditions favorable to the city.
