removed the end of the passenger divi

tbe end of the passenger division was in
Davenport while this city constituted Jhe
end of the freight division. It became

dee lia e was brought over here. When
this bad been done it at once became
evident that the train dispatchers and
trainmaster's office should also be here,
but so far tbe officials have not ordered
the charge, though there is more than a
probability tbat it will ia the near future.
As it is now all the order?,
etc.. from the trainmaster and
tbe business connected with the djs
pitchers' rffices is necessarily con
ducted either by wire or telephone,which
at times is exceedingly unhandy. No
doubt exists whatever but tbat these of
flees properly belong bere and will sooner
or later be changed. Of course Daven
port will not be pleased at tbe prospect,
as it will then leave tbat city nothing
more or less than a way station on the
great. Kocfc 1-lana route.
