Anotl er Change by Which the City
V.'ill be Greatly Benefitted.
A Rumor that the C, K. 1. 4k, P.
Alant to Hive all tbe R?maia
Ire Engine-, ttt.. to thia
Side or the River
There is a well founded rumor afloat
tbat tie C, R. I. & P. is about to make
another change that will add materially
to Rock Island's prosperity. The new
chang) contemplates the removal from
Davecport to thia city of til the remain
ing engines, etc., so tbat the passenger
as well as the freight trains will be made
up on this side or the river. The train
dispatchers' office will also probably be
moved oyer here, which -will make this
city tie end of both divisions as it should
A E'avenport paper a day or two ago
spoke of tbe new Baldwin engines in use
on the passenger division of the C, R. I.
& P. not being a success, saying that
they were too heavy and were conse
quent y laid up in the shops there from
the ef'ects of hot boxes. Neither of the
four engines have been laid up as yet.
The heat is probably on the other side
of the river where they don't see the en
gines any more since tbe passenger divi
sion b as been changed.
The work of extending the culvert run
ning tinder the C, R. I. & P. yards, just
above Wagner's brewery, is being pushed
by Mbster Mason Wiman, and it will soon
be rei dy for the C, B & Q to carry it
out uider their tracks la the river. How
valuaale track room is there at present
can be seen from tbe amount of filling
that run hwn done in the vioinitv nf tho
Vnhnr! rmiio6 vlipr kVi&L Was fnrmprlv a
wide slough has been filled up to grade to
make room for additional tracks.
The Central Traffic association has
gotten out a new scheme for handling
theat-ical companies, ball clubs, etc., on
what is called special party tickets. It
provides that any company of 10 or more
persons traveling one way can secure
transportation on these tickets at a rate
of 2 cents per mile. If some of the west
ern rads would adopt this plan it would
help nur ball teams out amazingly.
Rumor hs it that the C , R I. A P.
and C, B & Q. are about to put an a
thioLgh train from Chicago to San Fran
cisco The train will run from Denver to
San Francisco over the Denver & Rio
Grande, but between Chicago and Den.
ver will alternate over the Rock Island
and Burlington routes, thus giving tour
ists the advantage of traversing both
rouits on one trip going ,over one and
returning on the other.
Etgine 139 pulling the C. B. & Q
pay r. was in town yesterday. The 139
has one of tbe sweetest sounding bells on
the Q " system, but it is said that the
bell of the pay car engine on any road has
a much sweeter sound for a railroad man
than any other. The only trouble is that
on n.oat roads they don't bear it often
There is a rumor that the C, R. I t
P. n ill put on a new Denver limited ps
seccer in the near future. It is thought
that the new train will leave Chicago
about 10:45 a. m., which would make it
rorh Rock Island about 3:45 p. m. If
put on she will be a flyer.

The Democrat says there are 200 sa
looni in Davenport which are paying
$100 "beverage license" into the city
treasury. It thinks a third of them
could easily pay $300 license, or even
$500, or $1,000 which is a moderately
low estimate of the number that could
thus afford an increase. Mayor Bills in
bis inaugural address, proposed to raise
the license to 3U0, and tbe proposition
has met with much favor. But there is
& class of Davenport groggery-keepers
who don't feel like "seeing" the new
mayor's call. Twenty of these men met
recently and resolved ' tbat the citi
zens represented oad noticed with great
consternation tne determination of Mayar
Bills to raise the beverage license to $300,
"that it is the sentiment af this meeting,
etc.," that the'liberties of the state and
especially of the city of Davenport, are
to be trod upon by one who considers
himself smarter than "the rest of us," or
words to that effect. The preamble
wound up with a very flowery clause, thi
gist of which was, tbat "in the opinion
of this meeting the business of tbe grow
ing and highly prosperous city of Daven
port wou'd be seriously injured by the
proposed change of license. It was re
solved to take the matter before tbe city
council and see what could be done."

One week ago tcday two men giving
their names as Frank Burns and Frank
Williams engaged a room in the house of
well-known citizen on Second avenue
for, as they represented, the occupancy
by their wives. . That night the nea
took two women to the house, and thev
have spent the past week there, the men
remaining away at night claiming that
they had night employment in a hotel.
YeBterday the head of the house, whose
suspicions had been sroused, advised his
wife to tell the women that the room
would not be at their disposal after la; t
ght, but during the night one of tbe two
committed a desperate act which divulged
the true nature of things. At 1 o'clock
this morning the family was aroused by
disturbances in the rooms of the lodgers
and on breaking into the room, one of
the women was found on the floor in ap
parent agony. Dr. Meyers was im
mediately summoned and it was soon
discovered that the woman had taken a
dose of elixir of vitriol from a 4-ounce
bottle, but the doctor was successful in
the administration of emetics and in re
staring the woman to consciousness.
She gave her name as Lizzie Reddig, and
her companion as Carrie Brown, the tat
ter's husband being at present in the
county jail. Both are women of ilKre-
pute, but tbe cause of the attempted sui
cide is unknown.
This morning Burns and Williams we: e
arrested by the police, and Magistrate
Wivill fined them $5 and costs for d: S
orderly conduct. A greater Imposition
than they have succeeded in perpetrating
has not been committed on respectable
society in Rock Island before. The en
tire quartette should be run out ot town.
