The Syndicate iSurreidera its Dav
enport Be It Lines.
The ldt ,he 0r-i.ai,c41l
of AhHnOOBmrnt lrmwB l.ant
Atl&st eveniDg's meeting of the Da
enport city council, the tpcil strett c&r
committee sulmitted a commnnication
from the Davenport & Rick IsUod street
cur company stating that under do cir
curestsDces wculd it continue to operate
the dargerous Tiemont a venue hill either
by electricity or horses, and that if the
city were disposed to tDs:st upon itmain
iiioing it or eurreodi rim; the entire belt
or loop line ordinate?, of which it was
made & part, then it would rather sur
ritder the entire ordinances governing
surh portions of its sys'em although it
would preftr to retain the ntht to oper
ate the remainder of the lines teld by it
under that ordinance. Tne committee
submitted a resolution authorizing the
city attorney to draw at. ordinance for
feiting by the Mr.ct cr company tte
franchises mentioned, and the sme.was
adopted by tbe cc uncil
This leaves the syndicate in
posse-sion of these franchises in
Davenport; the Third street, Brtdy
s'reet. Fifteenth street aid Mt. Ida lima,
ihe Second street and Northwest Diven
port Iines,etc., which are vastly preferable
in their prestnt c-jnditioa free from the
exacting burdens the coancil might put
up on them had there be .n a compromise,
and which are worth more, as a matter of
course, in their exclusive ncB than would
have been tbe eniire nei work of tracts
heietofore possessed v ith the council
holding tbe right it desired the syndicate
to clothe it with, to permit o:her com
panies to use portions of its tracks.
The Democrat intimates that tbe action
of last evening means not the end, but
tbe beginning of trouble. One thing is
certain tbe syndicate dis K&st8sed of non
p tying lines now has srmething in Dav
enport worth fighting to:
But viewed from a disinterested stand
point, and after watching the complica
tions from tbe first, it d es not appear as
if the action last night augered trouble.
Tbe tendency would appear more as if
tbe city and tbe syndicate were coming
to a better understanding. Concessions
ouyht to be expected on both sides, fr
there is something bejo: d tbe council or
the syndicate that ought to be taken into
consideration. and that is the public,
whose interests would not be advanced
by pursuing the hostilitiss of tbe pat.
Mr IMwia Aravld n l.rrinr?.
Quite a number of Rook Island people
attended tbe lecture of Sir E twin Ar
nold at tbe Burtis Open, house at Daven
port ItiSt evening. Bis-hop Perry intro
duced tbe poet reader :n brief but bap
pily cbosen words, and then Sir Edwin
took possesion of tbe ta;e for an hour
and a half. Etcb of tiie eight readings
was accompanied by j refatory it marks
as to thetvents which .nspired tbe writ
ing. The openicg selection, "The Dis
course of Buddha," was of too heavy a
nature to arouse tbe sue ience to warmth,
but it can safely be said that the impres
sion made by tbe reader was more pleas
ant with each succeeding number, from
bis "Day Lingers on the Pdk9 and
Niaht Upon tbe Valleys " with which tLe
discourse opens, to the closing verse of
b's unpublished poem, ' la Many Laodi,"
which completed tbe tight's entertain -meet.
Tbe in termed tte programme
numbers were "Ali and he Angel." "The
Egyptian Slippers," ' C,'iieen Arjtmund
