The Street Car War Over There and
lew MeoRtble People View It.
The Davenport council, which is surely
noi representative of the sentiment of
the people having the interests of the
city nearest at heart, has stirred up a
racket by its arbitrary and oppressive
disposition toward the Davenport &
Rock Island Street Railway company,
and the consequent action of the com
pany in removing its Second street tracks
west of Scott street, as a matter purely of
self-defense, has not served to improve
the situation. The papers over there
with one accord stand by the company,
the Democrat presenting a particularly
strong argument in its defense. It prints
an interview with President Louderback,
and deprecates tho trouble as tending to
work a bad impression in the eyes of
outside capitalists. The Democrat says:
In talking on the subject yesterday F.
H. Griggs said: "I consider the present
situation of the street railway matter
very unfortunate, not to say dangerous
to the interests, not only of the com
pany, but to the city of Davenport Per
sonal prejudice and selfish local demands
ought not to influence the action of the
city council in the premises. What is
for the good of the whole city should be
the main consideration. We are striving
to get outside capital to help build new
factories, packing houses, railroad'), etc.
K the report is spread abroad that our
street railways do not pay ; that their
owners are harshly treated, how can we
expect that foreign capital will venture
"The Chicago capitalists who have
been spending large amounts hundreds
of thousands of dollars in rebuilding our
street railways, putting in the best elec
trical appliances, buildiug car shops and
extending lines, evidently had faith in the
future prosperity and growth of our city.
That mistakes have been made is self
evident, but it seems to me that to take
advantage of the situation and force the
street railway company to operate lines
which cannot possibly pay expenses,
would, in the end, be suicidal certainly
would delay if not prevent other capi
talists from risking their money in enter
prises which we want to establish. Home
capital will not take the risks. Shall we
encourage or drive away outside capital?
"There is another point of view. It is
well understood that there is danger that
the present company cannot carry the
burdens of operating expenses, interest,
charges, taxes, etc.. without utmost
economy. Should a receiver have to
take the management of the company's
property what would be the result? Cer
tainly no court would order lines to be
operated at a loss. Instead of 10 or 15
minute cars. 30 or even 50-micute time
on the outside lines would be ordered .
The reputation of our city would be so
affected that to ask investors to help us
would be useless. For these reasons I
hope the city council will treat the rail
way company liberally, and not force a
Continuing Mr. Griggs said that he
woulJ like to have the people of this city
turn back in recollection four or five
years to the time of the old mule-power
cars, and compare those days and their
service with the treatment the public gets
now. We would have something like it
in the appointment of a receiver, and this
matter or some, thing worse is not its
possible to befall us before we are out of
the woods. The 80 stockholders in this
company are disheartened. As a business
man who has known a great deal or the
inside of the deals said yesterday, they
invested in this property expecting to get
at least the interest rightfully due them
on their bonds, and probably diyidends
also. They have got nothing but assess
ments, and heavy ones. They have
reached the point, Mr. Louderback states.
beyond which they will not pass. They
refuse to put any more money on top of
the large sums they have liberally spent
here in trying to get this properly in
shape to earn money for them. They are
beginning to talk of abandonment rather
than of additional investment.
In all this the damage to the street
car service of the city would be bad
enough if it were to be Interfered with
by the appointment of a receiver as sug
gested, but it would not be commensur
ate with the detriment that would result
in other ways by the left handed adver
tisement this city would get in such an
an event. As Mr. Griggs says it would
be a disaster to have this report go out
about us. It may not be known to the
general public, but it is nevertheless a
fact, that this company of stockholders is
in a position to control directly a very
large part of the capital that may come
here for investment and our own up
building, and it is also imposs
ible to strongly influence a vast
amount of other capital that might
come here. This influence permeates
the financial system from which we
rightly expect to draw our future strength.
As has been said above, we must look to
the ouside source for the majority of the
capital invested here. Our own capi
talists do not put it up. If an unfavor
able opinion of the people and their dis
position goes out, or if there is reason
for outside capital to believe that the
commercial conditions here are so unfav
ablc that investment in factories or rail
roads or other enterprises here is likely
to be followed by disaster, we will simply
get left. That is all there is of it. That
is the result the business men fear, and
which they are seeking to avoid.
J. 8. Wylie suggests that a mass meet
ing be called te consider what ought to
be the attitude of the business men and
the citizens toward the company . No
call has been Issued, but one may be.
How general the response to such a call
might be is not known, but there is
reason to think that it would be quite
strong. It is certain that the peremptory
action of the council last week does not
meet the entire approval ot the citizens
t'antdsU's M ariag.
The trial of Cansdale of this county,
charged with tbe forgery of a marriage
certificate, came up at Davenport Satur
day, end the Leader says:
Cansdale, the prisoner charged with
conspiracy in mock marriage with Mary
Stratton, sat all afternoon in Judge
Eagal's office yesterday listening to the
arguments of Attorney Fisher for the
state and Elubbell in making a defense
for himself. The man did cot appear at
ease nor did he produce an impression
among the crowd that surrounded the
room that he was guiltless of the offense.
Indeed, it was shown that the defense
would be obliged to prove him inno
cent of one of two crimes, that of se
ducing Mary Stratton under the
farce of a mock marriage or bigamy.
lne case has excited no little interest
among the frequenters of court circles,
and in fact among tbe people of the three
cities who have been posted on the mat
ter through the press who have given it
a thorough airing. According to tbe
testimony of Mary Stratton, Cansdale met
her while she was engaged in Rock Isl
and 89 a nurse for a little child While
out walking one afternoon he met her
and made himself so agreeable that she
was pleased to meet him again and again
at the same place until they had gone
through love's story and come to Daven
port to be married. Tbe marriagd took
place in Gerstenberg's salooa in the
presence of Gerstenberg and several
other witnesses. A marriage certificate
is shown, which has the marks of being
a fraud. It is signed by a Mc-tbodist
minister, Rev. M. . Stone. It was
shown in the evidence that there was no
such minister in the city. From the sig
nature it would seem that the hand is
not that of a literary man. During the
argument letters signed by Ellen Cans
dale, and addressing William Cansdale
as her husband, were introduced. The
prisoner grew savage as the luckless
scribe made an effort to give his readers
the benefit of such correspondence. The
case was not finished last eveniag. but it
seems quite likeiv that be will be held to
the grand jury.
