THF PEORIA'S POSITION.
The Railroad s Side of the Question
of liiver Frontage.
Knpt. Mndlow Kxpnaaei Himseir
'rrely oa the KlKhc of Orrapanry
and the lIpoItlon or the ;ity.
Speaking this morning of the action of
the Rock Island Citizens' Improvement
association in adopting resolutions look
ing to the improvement of the river front
and the removal of tracks occupied by
the railroads there, and held to be un
necessary and causing much complaint on
the part of property holders living on
First avenue, action which led the coun
cil to assume a position looking to rem
edying the cause of complaint, Supt
Sudlow. of the R. I. & P. said: "I have
noticed the action of the Business Men's
association and am somewhat suprised. I
understood their mission to be to build up,
not to tear down, to induce new roads
and factories to come in, not to drive
out tboBe now here, a mission to espouse
cause of the general welfare of the
c.tv. and cot of personal grievances."
Asked as to the occupation of city
ground by the Peoria road, Mr. Sudlow
"Yes, we occupy, and have for many
years, some of the city's ground between
Twelfth and Fifteenth streets for yards
and sidetracks, and have been paying the
city a fair rental under proper agreement
for the same. These yards and tracks are as
necessary to the factories, mills and
merchants as to ourselves. In these days
of clos competition factories can't well
afford to haul their incoming material
and their outgoing product by wagon
and compete with their neighbors, who
are aHowt d sidings to load and unload
from. Wholesale men would no! be
satisfied to be deprived of their loading
and unloading tracss and be compelled
to haul longer distances."
"Dow about the noise nuisance 7"
"Yes, we admit that in order to!o
yard work and run trains in the ordinary
course of business, we are compelled to
xnahe a noise. Under the statutes we
n ust Eound the whistle to prevent acci
dent to life and property and steam will
escape frin the safety valve at times,
a.l of which I am sorry to say is unpleas
ant o people living in too close proximi
ty, to, too. is the clatter and bang of
tbe electric car through the day and half
the ni&ht t ffensive; so too is the smoke,
the hammering, the pounding and grind
ing of the factory, trying on the serves
of those living too near by. Tbec there
is tbe big mill with its whistle, its buzz
of mtcy saws, its lumber piles and un
sightly. stacks of kindling that, too, is not
Gesirable if too close to one's residence.
But all of these, like tbe railroad and Its
tracks are necessary and a vital part of
our great commercial and industrial sys
tem, and no live city can dispense with
Asked as to vacating the grounds, he
said: "We do not have so poor an opin
ion of the city council as to, think for a
moment they would order us to vacate
ground they have no use for; or.that they
would seek to strike a blow of this kind
to ths city's prosperity or attempt to
6quelch a road that has been fighting the
battle of just rates for these three cities
for years, and been working hand in hand
with home industries to advance local in
terests. Neither do I believe they will
lend themselves for the purpose of pull
ing any one's chestnuts out of, the fire."

Some men are born wise, others attain
wisdom, and others still have wisdom
thrust upon them, but to none eo fortun
ate as anv of these can be attributed the
origin of the Liberal Republican club idea
which to the majority of the.fast fading
faith, is a mystery. What puzzles them
the most is what the word "liberal" in
connection with the club's name signifies,
which as vet is unexplained, although
that was supposed to be tbe purpose of
last night's ghost dance. Only two of
the three gentlemen summoned to appear
before the tribe put in an appecrar.ee.
Con ant, whe had been selected by the
braves to dig up tbe hatchet, and who had
been laboring most faithfully the past
few days, presented a dejected ap
pearance as he strode into the hall.
Tbe dance was finally begun by the
chairman, Wounded Heart Deckmann rap
ping for order. Mayor McConochie was
first called upon and he made some re
marks that were brief and somewhat to
the point. He was a republican and
would. glory in republican success, but
he didn't want to see anything but a
straightout republican club. He was
not in favor of German, Irish, or veteran
clubs but of one that would take In
every republican. tie men tauncnea
into the on' told tale of the glories at
tained by the G. O. P. and closed with
an excuse for the brevity of bis remarks.
Aid. Schroeder was next called upon
and he addressed the assembled chief
tains with a vim that made the atmos
pheric conditions perceptibly hotter
and when be had finished be sat down
on the word liberal with all tbe force
he was capable of mustering. He wanted
it understood that he was an out and out
republican and that no one could ring
him in on any side issue. If the word
liberal had any factional function con
nected with it, he was not in it, he said.
The speaker had never been informed
what liberal meant in connection with
the Republican club, and be wished some
one would explain it. This ended his
speech, and it was here that the fun
began. Big Chief Wilcox saw the break
and he threw the grand hailing sign of
diB tress to Young Mn-Not-Afraid-of-His-WhiskerEr
the latter hadn't yet
tumbled, though everybody else had, and
Wounded Heart knowing that something
had to be done to prevent a stampede,
arose and announced that "perhaps Mr.
Conant can enlighten us," but that indi
vidual couldn't be was busy with his
thinker, and he in turn called on Dr.
Craig, who explained that the club was to
be liberal in every particular and aimed
to take in all classes of republicans and
even democrats. This, however, didn't
seem to be just what was wanted, and it
was plainly visible that something had to
be done at once. Pain-in-The-Face null
then began to hustle and after several
hand to ear conversations among tbe
braves Morris Rosenfield was called for,
but be had nothing to say and another
painful silence ensued, and finally with
out having -done anything whatever, on
motion the meeting adjourned.
It was noticeable that most of the vice
presidents and members of the different
committees were conspicuous by their ab
sence. Tbe meeting became so warm at
one time that Crowfoot Cary threw aside
his bear skin and had it not been for
wiser council he would probably have at
tempted to break in on the sacred sun
dance that was i eing conducted. Crow
foot always likes to be in on anything
that is going on.

Every day that passes now is valuable
time lost in the promotion of tbe Twin
City Columbian enterprise. As The
Argus has stated heretofore, it is high
time that a meeting was held of the
original Twin City committee, and the
endorsers of the note under which the
land is held in trust for the association,
to the end that a permanent organization
may be formed. The Akous is in favor
of taking action looking to tbe engage
ment of a salaried secretary who may de
vote his time absolutely to the enterprise
and thereby derive a revenue from tbe
use of the land, and also to secure tbe
stock necessary, collect it in asd put tbe
matter on a sound basis. The members
of the committee who have brought the
undertaking to its present status are
probably anxious to be relieved of tbe
responsibility, and the forming of a per
manent organization will provide for this
In hopes of improving the track the
grounds were some time ago thrown open
to the public, but the privilege faas been
taken advantage of by teamsters who
have not confined themselves to the track
but have cut the grounds up in all di
rections. Other abuses have been noticed
which should be stopped. Tbe time Is
approaching for the Labor day obser
vances. Barnum's shows are coming,
and while the first advance man evinced
a determination to go out into tbe Dav
enport lands, there is no doubt that with
the facilities of the Columbian grounds.
the shows will co there, and all these ad
vantages to be taken advantage of re
quires the attention and services of some
one wbo can aSord to give the time solely
to tbe interests of the Columbian project.
This afternoon it was determined to
call a meeting of the Twin-City Col am
bian committee at tbe rooms of the Rock
Island CitizenB' Improvement association
next Tuesday evening, when the endors
ers of the note and others interested are
expected to be present.
