Jeer, F.te., Ulsewsed at Last
The regular monthly rrecting of th e
Rock Island Citizsna Improvem ent as
sociation was held at the rooms last
evening with President Jackson in the
chair. Thtre was a good attendance of
representative members of the association
Mayor McConocbie reported on bis re
cent trip to Jacksonville in behalf of the
association to investigate as to the aims
and desires of the J. S. E. road, stating
that the road would build to Rock Island
provided it could obtain the right of way
from Rock river into the city to a depot
site about the foot of Twentieth street.
Mr. Henry, he stated, was the authorized
representative of the company, vested
with the powers he had represented him
self to possess..
A discussion followed over the road's
proposed right of way, Fred Hass op
posing the adoption of a line south of the
Peoria track where it would encroach
upon First avenue. He stated he was
emphatically against such a right of way
and would oppose it with all the vigor he
possessed, as it would have a tendency to
damage the property of citizens living on
that tnoroughfare. Mr. Hass stated that
a right of way north of all the tracks
alone the river front would in his esti
mation meet with more popuUr approval
Mr. Hass was, however, for exerting
every reasonable effort to secure the road.
H. D. Folsom spoke in favor of grant
ing the company any feasible rieht of way
that it might eetk into the city. He was
not for damaging anybody's property,
but one citizen should not be allowed to
block a road from coming into town.
Other remarks were made by C. A Rose,
Dr. W. A. Paul, W- B. Ferguson and J.
M. Buford.but there was no action in
order and none was taken.
President Jackson spoke of theCoK
umbian project, the impetus that had
been given it by the purchase of the land,
and holding tht the enterprise Bhould
now be taken hold of in earnrs. It
ought to assume definite shape cow, as
there was much woik to be done and
work it is that must be done. The land
beicg secure all we now have to do is to
raise the money for the stock in the ssso
ciation. Remarks were made by Dr.
Paul, Henry Carse, J. M. Buford, W. B.
Ferguson and W. C. Maucktr, the pre
vailing opinion being that the 100.000
capital should be raised, and that soon,
but should it be found impossible to do
it the amount might be reduce 1 so as not
to delay organization too long. Howev
er, there should be a determined effort to
raise the 10O,00O. and it is beliivjd that
can be dene.
The association then adjourned.
