Talk of the Runs of the C., R. 1. & p. Flyers
Between Here and Council Hlnfls Being
Cut Down From Three to Two Local
Note of Interest and Personal Mention.
The Rock Island is considering the ad
visability of extending the run of the ens
gineers on the "flyers." Should this be
carried into execution it will cut this ser
vice) into two instead of three divisions.
The divisions at present are from here to
Brooklyn, from there to Stuart and from
Stuart to Council Bluffs. The plan un
der consideration is to extend the run
from here to Des Moines and from there
straight through to Council Bluffs, doing
away altopether with the central divi
sion. If this should be done it would
reduce the engine crews from six to four,
giving the men longer runs and giving
the company two more engines for ser
vice elsewhere. The cause of this
change is said to be the fact that the
present runs ure not of sufficient length
to get all the service out of the engines
that the company desires.
The scab operators on the B., C. R,
& N., lines are receiving the same treat
mcnt at the hands of shippers that those
did who took the places of the strikers
on theC, M. & 8t. P. lines before. Sev
eral have been notified to leave town, and
it is being made decidedly unpleasant for
many. Chief Ramsey is confident that
the men will win. and says that most of
the operators who do not belong to the
order are either incompetent or dissl
pated. The dispatchers at Cedar Rap
ids have also gone out now, but it is gen
erally supposed that unless the operators
are backed up by the trainmen, they will
be unable to win. The trainmen have
partly promised to back them up.

The operators' strike on the B., C. R

the strikers, and has not s riously crip

struck arc being rapidly filled. Both

Freight business on the Rock Island is
