The Toll Increased to Muscatine

At meeting of ibe Muscatine Bridge
com puny held tbe oihir evening it whs
determined to r.ise the tolls on tennis to
20 cents each wsy, an iccresse of five
cents each v. j over the the present r'es.
This Etep is made cecery, the Musca
tine Journal sa9, by toe lare tsx im
posed on the Bridge eon pany ty Illinois.
Acc.onlir.g to the Drury "township.
Hoc k Ibland county , tux collector's books,
there is due him from the bridge com
paiiy for the yearlS91, 'as BniOdnting to
?9'J7 87, or 4.00 a day for each day the
bridge was in operation This amount,
4 20, istqual to 18 per cf nt of the gross
receipts of the bridge s nce opened May
8. 1S91 . Shjs the Journal:
When the bridge company fixed the
tolls they were cmeful to fluure clcsely,
and all tuat whs atteripted was to get
enough income from tie tolls to pay ac
tual expenses. Oi,e thing not figund on,
and which turLS out to he quite import
ant in amount, was the tax levied, fig
ured according to tbe assessment made
by the Drury township lisscssor.
The only income the Bridge company
has is from tolls; thus differing from any
other corporation . Ir. order to meet
buch a seemingly outrageous tax it U
therefore necessary for the toll rate to be
raised; no other way is )efl open to them.
Tbe five cents increase will De sufficient
to meet this unexpected increase of ex
penses in the Illinois tax. The most of
this money will go to tt e state and coanty
atd it is perfectly lieht that it should
come from there in fact, it is not possi
ble to raise this I linoij tax in any other

pleted until May; $4 20 a day while in
operation; 18 per cent of the gross re
ceipts to Illinois! Gee Wbiz!
That bridpe was built as an evidence of
Muscatine's enterprise and pluck in i s
determination to provide every resource!
for bringing Rock Islaid county farmers
into that city to trale, and while our
Iowa neighbor was leaking these tfforts
to catch tbe Rock Island county farmers j
Rock Island should have been taking the
tolls from Milan bridges. As it is now it !
is about as cheap for lower end farmers to
come to Rock Island ss to go to Musca
tine, and the last embargo to their coming
hire would be raised i'' that bridge to the

chise of the Davenport & Rock Island
Railway company to that portion of its
system in the city of Davenport known
as the loop lines granted under the ordi
nance adopted Dec. 14, 1SS7. The ordN
nance was placed rpon its' passage, and
the vote stood: Ayes Beyer, Biscboff,
Eikhardt, Klein, Leonard. L. Tarkhurst;
nays Voilmer, E dinger, Korn, Klug, M.
R. Parkhurst, Smith. The ordinance
failed to pass, eight affirmative votes be
ing necessary, and went over to the next
meeting. It seems that the conservative,
p iblic-spirited element of tbe Davenport
council may prevail after all. The council
has done right in refusing to countenance
tbe throwing away of 250.000 worth f
street car property in tbis way, and de
priving tbe city of valuable means of
transportation. It is to be hoped now
the differences between tbe city of Dav
enport and the syndicate will be amicably
adjusted by mutual concessions'!
