The Dtverj port & Rock Island Street
Railway company entertained about 100
of its tri city friends last evening at the
new Bla k Hawk Inn at the Watch Tower,
which w is formally thrown open for the
first tine The mayors and other city
officers, the councils, officers of the Basi
nets associations, the Rock Island super
visors, sad South Rock Island road com
misticni rs and the press, together with a
number of representative citizens and the
pres-s of the three cities became by invi
tation tl.e guests of the syndicate, and
the cci slon was a pleasant and notable
one in til respects.
Speci kl trains from Moline and Daven
port brr uyht those from those cities to
Rock bland at7:30where three trains of
'he co i.jitnj'a beet motors brilliantly
lighted ks were the trailers electrically
als , ere mvV up on Market Squaie
and prcceedeJ to the V wer. The motor
men an 1 conductors which were picked
from tto btst on this tide of the river,
wore buttonhole bouquets, and white ties
and g'oves, which together with the
regulation uniforms presented an at
tractivi ly neat appearance. The com
pany's local officials. General Supcrin
tendan Schnitger, Electrical Engineer
Pre let rks, Treasurer Lardner. and
Aesisti nl Superintendants Huntoon,
Sheriff and Hill were all on hand
to e c that every detail was
properly guarded. The trains reached
the Tower shortly after S o'clock. The
grount.s were pr.ttily illuminated with
Japanese lanterns, while the Inn presented
a corneous appearance in the reflection
of inc indeacent lights. The guests were
received rn th': veranda by President
Loudtrback, Treasurer Lardner and Supt.
S. hrii ger, itnd after the reception, in
whir!, c ni pi intents were exchanged and
the Inn and grounds informally in
spect! d. the barquet was announced.
This vas served in the dining ball ou the
first t h r. where long tables ran length
wise of the room, which was beautifully
decorited wiih the national colors arlisti
caiiy festooned, while palms, pitted
plnnt- 8Ld flowers lent nature's tribute to
the scene . Tlie tables were handsomely
arranged and the feast was a glowing
compliment to Manager Montrose who
his c frye of the Inn for the summer,
mid ho, with the aid of Clerk Willerton
and Meward Lonsdale, had spared no
effuri to mu.ke the important feature
node their direction in every way worthy
of tbe occasion . Ed. Hill was also on
h:ni an X made himself useful. Tbeb-tn-quet
could not have been improved upons
It Was well prepared, and as well served.
Everything was ample and heartily
President Jackson, of the R.ck Island
Cit.Zw-ns' Imprtvemaci association, acted
as f-ast mister, and after prayer by Rev.
W. J . Kerr, of Miln, there came an
anirb;.ed tiiscussion of the viands, and
aboi t the time the glasses began to click,
and the m k to rise from fragrant
Havinnis. Toasmaster Jackson rose and
start d that the first and second parts of
the tve ling festivities had passed in the
rece jti ui and banquet, and now came
the third part. The gentlemen were
present at the 'nvitation, he sail,
of tne DavenLiort& Rock Island railway
company. He spoke of the occasion as
the opening of the company's new
pav lion so complete and so beautiful, n
its ( jui potent, and construction and which
Wd- the pride of us al! as citizens. He
spoteof the triscity unity of sentiment
or rather as it should be, four city
nnl.y. Here in this community we are
all ne people. Our interests are identi
ci!, and brought closer together by the
bards of steel with which the street car
company Ivib linked them together. Tne
cimpanyhad built up for us the finest
line of electric railway in the northwest,
hat invested nearly two millions of dol
lar here and paid more than a dollar for
evtry dollar that has come In. The
syi dicate has donemore for the cora
mi nity than any other gentlemen in its
history. The company is composed of
80 of the best business men of Chicago
an 1 it is a pleasure to welcome them here
wkh their capital and enterprise. Their
wt rk here speaks for itself. They are
ile i.riinj of every encouragement that
cai possibly be shown them in the ci
te .si ii and maintenance of their sys
tem. President Louderback was then intro
diced. He spoke of the pleasure it gave
tb; company he represented to meet the
representative people of the three cities
or this oceasion. He expressed his ap
pieciation of the municipalities of the
three cities, ibr Rock Island county sup-erviner-.
and road commissioners, without
w iose c insent and co- oper 'lion the com
p my could have done nothing in making
tl e improvements it had. From the first,
tl e eotBrpaaj had been actuated in all its
e Ions by what it considered the best in
U 3??: of the three cities. "We don't say
fiat are were philanthropic," said
A r L . . r . "in making the im
l ri-v ruent'j we have in our system. We
tut looking to our best interests, which
we believe have been your interests, for,
as has been said, our interests are
your interests, and your interests
are our inte-restE . We have shown our
faith iu your community, our faith in
you, in your cities, and while we have
gone in so heavily in our investments in
reconstructing the system, that things
have looked blue at times, we hope there
are brighter times da vning, and when they
come we know you will rejoice with us,
for as has been so truly said, our success
is your success". Mr. Louderback
said as far as construction was concerned
the company was practically through
on this side of the river, although the
business men had petitioned for an ex
tension on Fourteenth avenue, and the
people of Milan wanted electric cars over
the Rock river bridges, both of which im
provements would be made if feasible and
the council consented. Concluding, Mr.
Louderback paid a handsome compliment
to the company's offlceis in the tri-cities
who had succeeded in conducting tte
company's affairs and operated its system
without interruption under circuit-Stance s
when generalship was required, such as
in paving and track laying and changing
from horse power tu electric
power, -tnd he desired, Mr. Louderback
said, to acknowledge on behalf of the
company his appreciation of all these
Aid. S. F. Smith of Davenport was
announced for the next toast on "Black
Hawk Inn," and J. E Calkins, city editor
of the Davenport Democrat in Mr.
Smith's absence and in obedient to that
gentleman's n q'lest, read a letter ad
dressed to President Louderoack, and in
which the writer sa d it was indisposition
of body and not of heart that prevented
his attendance. He presented his com
pliments to the president of the com
pany however and presented this senti
ment "May Black Hawk Inn Grow in
Favor as may the Street Railway Com
paiv, until it Cjmpels Popular. ty."
Aid. E U. Guy er of Rock Island was
called upon andtxpressed the belief that
the citizens of the three cities were unan
imous in the sentiment that the advent of
the street car syndicate in our midst was
the dawn of a new era for us. He spoke
of Black Hawk as the first promoter in
this community, he having discoyered the
tower, of Mr. Hakes, as the second, he
having originated the Milan street rail
way and the water power, and of Mr.
Louderback as the third promoter, he
having put in the electric line to the
tower and placed the historic spot within
reach of all.
Capt. W. C Bennett, of Moline, was
then called upon and made some brief
remarks on the auspicious occasion. He
had not come prepared to speak, suppos
ing that those features had been looked
after before hand, but he felt like ex
pressing his hearty aprreciation of the
company's efforts to promote a good
feeling among the people of the three
cities, Milan included and was proud that
the locality should attract such people
as the ones opt rating the company
a;nong us. He was sure that these cities
possessed a street car system second to
none, and cloned with the statement that
it was hi3 belief that th se men present
who would live to see a population of
250, 000 people in thete four towns so
Mayor William HcConochie was next
in order, and be in turn spoke words of
eccourasemi ut lo the company and its
representatives here. The city bad given
these gentlemen everything it posnbly
coald, and he believed as did Mr. Louder
back, that the company hed put in more
than a dollar for every dollar it bad taden
out. All our people are willing to help
the company as our success is mutual,
and he closed by predicting a bright fu
ture for both.
Rev. W. J Kerr, of Milan, then made
a few remarks in which he spoke of the
vast and extensive system of improve
ments inaugurated in this vicinity by the
Davenport fc Rock Island Street Railway
company, and told of the grandeur
of the appearance of the scene presented
to one standing in the streets of Milan
last night and looking toward the Tower
all ablaze with liyht and presenting ins
deed a beautiful view. He then took oc
casion to pay a compliment to the enter
prise and push of the street railway com
pany and hoped to see the day when Mi
lan would be connected with the rest of
cities by electr city.
General A U. Sanders, editor of ttc
Davenp rt Tribune then responded to
the toast "The Press," his remarks being
full of reminiscences and good hits, and
contained many words of praise for the
enterprise shown by the company, special
mention beiug given to President Louder
bick, whom tne spaier had k-i .vn when
a boy in Davenport, while the press came
in for a modest tribute, of course. It was
an able effort and abounded in good
J. T. Ki-nworthy was called for and re
sponded with a few remarks appropriati
to the occasion, expressing his good feel
ing in being preseut among tUe representa
tives of the four cities and joined with the
rest, in wishing the company prosperity,
and complimenting it on what it has done
for the community.
Cuairman Smith of the board of super
visors and a resident of Moline, was the
next to respond, and bis remarks were
complimentary to the company and its
representatives. He had presided over
the board of supervisors for several days
where everything was out of order "but
this evening" said the speaker, "every
thing is in order" and he extended the
thanks of the Board to Mr. Louderback
for bis courtesy.
Aid. Korn of Davenport, Phil Mitchell,
Fred Hass, J. B. Oakleaf of -Moline then
spoke in the order named, each making
pointed remarks that were listened to
with interest, the last named gentleman
expressing himself in favor or giving the
company any privilege it might ash. Iu
Moline, the speaker s&id, he was sorry to
admit it had not been done in the past,
but it probably would be in the future,
and in this connection he mentioned the
substantial improvements that had fol
lowed the advent of the company here,
and said he hoped in the future that
everything would be done to make mat
ters mutually agreeable to make the com
pany and the people.
It was expected to have more responses,
but in view of the threatened approach
of the storm it was deemed best to dis
perse, and the cars were taken for home.
A mandolin orchestra discoursed de
lightful music during the feast, and the
event proved a gratifying success.
