No Desire to Cripple Kock Island's
On the Contrary an Aim to Improve
the Advamas.s and Opitortoai
Mf or All Lin Kntrx
Idk the City.
From interviews with various First
avenue property holders and. also repre
sentative members of the Rock Island
Citizens' Improvement association, it is
learned that there is no manifest desire
to cripple or curtail the railroad facilities
of Rock Inland as stated by Superin
tendent Sudlow, of the R. I. & P., in his
interview in The Abgus Saturday, but
rather an aim to improve and extend our
commercial advantages, to promote the
facilities of all our roads in a manner
that will afford equal rights and advan
tages to all, and access fair to all to the
large manufacturing industries in the
lower part of the city.
The city council, as The Argus is in
formed, is likewise favorable to this plan
wuii the inanicipul body is also desirious
of encouraging the terminal ground pro
ject in the lower part of the city, which
will meet the rtquirements of ''all the
roads now htre, as to switching and at
the same time offer inducements to those
that are seeking entrance, offering as such
a tc'jeme does, the best possible advan
tages as to switching, and storing of
The council has endorsed the idea of
clearing First avenue of the cattle and
freizht cars for the puspose of making
room for the main tracks to be put down
parallel to the R. I. & P. main track, to
be used in common for all railroads now
here, and furthermore those that are
seeking to enter the city. "I do not be
lieve," said one property holder, "the
city council has any idea of oppressing
any railroad, any more than they would
seek to give one road advantages that
could be extended to no other road on
First avenue and to the manufacturing lo
ca ities in the lower end, but as I take it, it
iobc belief of the council that all railroads
should have common privileges of access
in retching the proposed terminal
grounls. I am informed that First ave
nue, in front of blocks 3, 4 and 5, is com
pletely covered with tracks for the stor
age f freight and cattle cars, and this
without lawful authority, to an extent
that co other railroad could gain accets
to the city through that locality. It is
cooeidered, therefore, that if improve
ments are made that will clear First ave
nue of the storage of cars and First ave
nue improved, the streets to the river,
reopened as provided for by law, that
the value of the property will be increased
to an extent that can be based on the
same basis then that on First avenue,
which will also give the city a more pre
sentable appearance to river traffic in
and about the lower part of the city which
will be improved and largely built up by
the raployes that ere necessary about
such terminal facilities."

A dispatch from Washington to to
day's Chicago News, says:
Representative Cable, of Illinois, said
today for the first time in three months
that the Wcrld's Fir appropriation
would pass. When he left here for the
Cleveland notification ceremonies he said
the appropriation had not a ghost of a
show to pass. When he returned this
morning and mingled with the members
he found a remarkable change of senti
ment. "It hardly seems possible that
such a charjge could have occurred in a
week," said Mr. Cable tonight. "The
Illinois delegation is now a unit for the
appropriation and they are working with
splendid effect among other delegations.
I am as certain tonight that the appro
priation bill will pass as I was a week
ago that it would not pass."

I desire once more to bear my testi
mony to the value of Allcck'a Porous
Plasters. I have used them for 25 years
past, and can conscientiouly commend
them as the best external remedy that I
have known. Years spo, when thrown
from a carriaze and seriously injured. I
gave them a thorough trial. la a very
frhort time the pain that I was suffering
disappeared, and within a week I was
entirely relieved. On another occasion,
when suffering from a severe cough,
which threatened pulmonary difficulties,
which I was recommended to go to Flor
ida to relieve. I determined to test the
plasters aga;n. I applied them to my
chest and between the shoulder blades,
and in less than a fortnight was entirely
cured. On still another occasion, when
suffering from an attack of rheumatism
in the shoulder to such an extent that I
could hardly raise my arm, I again re
sorted to the plasters, and within a very
few days the rheumatism entirely disap
peared. I have them constantly by me,
whether at home or abroad. My family
as well as myself have found them to be
a sovereign remedy, both for external
and internal troubles. I never had but
one Kidney difficulty in my life, and the
application of the plasters cured me in a
week. I desire, as I said before, to bear
my testimony in a public way to their
efficacy, and I know of no better way of
doing it than by giving you my personal
