The Fropesed Sew Bridge Kf-tweea
lTeaprt Md Mellnc Sates and
The Divenport Democrat offers the
following comments on the proposed
scheme to build a road from Clinton to
Davenport and to bridge the river be
tween the latter city and Moline:
The corporation is the outgrowth of the
scheme mentioned in the democrat some
time ago for a transfer acd terminal com
pany at this place. Since the project was
first broached the promoters hive been
quietly at work en it, and the organiza
tion is the result. Instead of making the
enterprise simply a local one for the
transferring of cars across the river at this
place, and for the handling and storage
of those that are to be held here for a
time, the plan bus befn extended. It
embraces all this plan and more, includ
ing, 88 is seen by the foregoing, a plant
for a line of road to Clinton via the river
towns above here. It i3 stated that there
is the greatest enthusiasm among the peo
ple of these smll places oyer the project
They are acxiou for the construction of
the road, as are the farmers all along the
way, and it is promised that there shall be
liberal subscriptions of capital stock.
Indeed, it is said that the subscriptions
in sight will be ample to build and place
in operation the road and all its appur
tencea. The prade is almost a water
level all the way from here to Clinton,
and ttre are no engineering difficulties
of const quence to be met with.
The design in building to Clinton is to
give Davenport, by connection at that
point, the trains of the Chicago & North
western and to admit to Clinton the
trains of such roads as may cone in here
from the other side of the river. As the
plan includes the construction of abridge
at this point, which will probably be a
double track bridge as has before been
outlined, the Santa Fe. now surveying
this way from Monmouth or Glesburg.
will oe admitted to this fide of the river
and may possibly be carried to Clinton,
being held out of that place only by
agreements tbat may probably exist not
to invsde the territory rf the roads that
are now intrenched tbere. The scheme
for the construction of the transfer and
terminal yards and transfer bridge is still
mnile a part of the enterprise.
The promolors of the matter instance
the coming of the X irtLwenern from
Clinton as a valuable hecession to this
city, as well hs to Moline and Rck Isl
and. That line is 1;U miles io length
from Clinton to Chicago, and as the plan
contemplates a line only abut 31 miles
long from tbis ci'y to Clinton, it is ar
gued it at the distance ftom this city to
Chicago will be materially reduced from
its present rigurt s. and that thire will be
a corresponding reduction iu tha price of
limited tickets on other lines. T.'ie ad
vent of a shor'cr line to this place, it is
further argued, will materially cut down
frei:b-s to this point. There are other
advantages, amonr which is the securing
of the S3nta Fe sjs'cm from Galesburs
or some kindred point. The proposed
bridge is to be located just below tee
rnou'h of Duck creek.
A dispatch from Burlington states that
Q ' officials are indulging in considerable
talk regarding the building of a double
track between Burlington and Council
Bluffs this year. They say it is very
probable. The Burlington people have
bought a tract of land at Colchester,
Iowa, and will put in machinery for man
ufacturing clay into ballast to be used in
grading. There are many signs of activ
i v in improvement in the various depart
ments of the road.
When "Gath" asked Mr. Pullman about
eiying tips to Pullman car porters he
said: "We do not ask or expect, the pub
lic to pay our porters. We pay them
eod salaries, and we can get all the good
porters at the price we pay them. Fees
paid by foolish people often demoralize
the service. We wish the people would
The Canal Oniloik.
Cap. Lon Bryson, of Davenport, who
has been at Washington to meet the river
and harbor committee and talk about the
Hennepin canal, has returned and re
ports that the outlook is favorable for an
appropriation for the work. The appro
priation recommended by the engineers
for the Hennepin canal work at the hands
of this congress is f 1,700. OlK). and Cspt.
Brjsoa feels sure tnat favorable action
will be taken by the hcuse, but possibly
not to the ex'.ent of this recommendation.
One trouble is that so much of the f 300.
000 appropriated by the last congress
ri mains unexpended. This, however, is
no fault of the engineers or of congress.
It is due to the deiay occasioned by local
ehstructionists and the canal project in
their endeavor to force the location of
the canal by a route to the mouth of

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
of free treatment has
been a success,so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
afflicted people who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many of whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has come to
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
