The Terminal Pneet.
The Terminal project being the next
subiect for consideration Secretary Searle
read a report from the committee ap
pointed somitime ago, as follows:
Tour committee appointed for the pur
pone of orgab'Sing or devipinz means t(
liuproviug the railroad facilities of the
city of Rck Island, would beg leave to
report as follows:
After the appointment of this said
committee it immediately set about the
work asMgned to it. Iu first step was to
cast about for a feasible and practicable
entrance to the city. It determined that
the route known as the '"River front" was
the only practicable mode of entrance from
the southwest. It found, however, that
the occupation of the river front by the
existing railroads was conducted in so
ot jectionable a manner that it was Im
possible to obtain the consent ef property
Holders for an additional road without a
rttdicnl change of conditions. It then de
ierminid that the most eatisfactory way
of solving the probk m was first lo organ
ize and incorporate an organizi'ion
known as the Tri-City Terminal com
pany, which was then formei and incorp
orated under the las of the slate of
ll'.ino-p; tbe incorporators consisting r-f
27 irifliiential business men of the
After these preliminary steps weie
taken, your committee successfully urg'.'d
the citv council to have t.'ie legality
the occupancy of the Tiver front by the
various r-ulroada investigated by the city
attorney. Afer a long and careful in
vestigtition the said city at-orney hs
presented to that body a very exhaustive
report showing the illeeility of the ordi
ncr.cvs under which all tracks excepting
the main truck now upon said river front
were constructed Si;d report has tee-i
referred to a special coirmiUee and is
now under consideration.
Your committee would further beg to
report th- t tbty tiave secured an option
for tbe terminal grounds from Messrs.
Sehreirer A. Roth, suid ground being east
of the present track of the Rock Is and
& Peor.a railway and south of tbe Penn
Tank Line company, extending to the
citv limits, said grounds being 500 feet
wide and shout 1,400 feet long. Messrs.
Schr. iner &Roth have made this option
at a vety low figure, on condition that
the laud Hbouid be taken Boon, and a
payment made thereon, expecting to de
rive their compensation from the ad

would see its way clearly to assist tbe

of the undertaking that the council ren
der all assistance within its power. John
Oalwailer. A!d. William Kennedy. W.
C. Maucker and 8. W. Searle also spoke
briefly on the sutj'ct, after which Fred
Hass presented the following resolution,
which was adpted:
Resolved, That whereas the city coun
cil has at the solicitation of this associa
tion secured a report from the city at
torney ia relation to ths occupation by
the railroad companies of the street
known as First avenue; We therefore
respectfully urge the council to take
such action upon that report as the pub
lic interest demands; and that this public
highway into the City be secured for the
benefit of railroads wishing to come here
and for the business accommodations of
all railroads which are now running into
the city. The secretary of this aasocia
tion is hereby ri quested tor or ward acopy
oi these ret olutions to the citv Cierk to be
read at tbe next regular meeting of the
Aagastan. I'nlTeraity Exposition.
C. A. Rosander was elected to mem
bership in the association and afterward
addressed tbe meeting in regard to tbe
plate of the proposed University Exposi
tion, outlining the plan of action and
showing the roHgnitude of tbe project.
He was followed by Dr. J. W. Stewart,
who also spoke enthusiastically in favor
of the plans and was of the opinion that
the association should adopt some mea
sure showing its interest in the matter,
and accordingly tbe following resolutions
were passed on motion of L, Simon:
Whereas, The Augustan University
association is making extensive and elab
orate preparations to bold a great exposi
tion in our city next June, and
Whereas, We know said association to
possess tbe means and facilities to make
said project a grand success, as it owns
and controls 10 acres of land located on
Moline avenue, along two street railway
lines, three blocks fr .in the C, R. I. &
P. depot, and a great jubilee anniyersary
of the Augustana synod will be held tier
ntxt June, when thousands of people
from abroad will attend; therefore,
Resolved, That the Citizens' Improve
ment association of Rock Island is
pleased to endorse this exposition pro
ject, and recommend it as in every way
wi rthy the confidence and support of
enterprising manufacturers and - business
Fred Hass offered the folio ving reso
lution which was adopted:

STILL STANDING FIRM.
The Operator and Officials Both Maintain
Today will probably demonstrate
whether or not the operators strike on the
Rock Inland will be a success, as it is
figured that all ends of the svstem nhnnl.l
have a thorough test by tfce.t lime unless
as rum red yesterday there should be
sympathy from other roads or from
flme brxnch of the train service of the
Rock Island. Trains have so far been
moving oa time and very little evidences
of a strike is to be seen locally speak -ing.
Aiient Meyers came down from
Moline and assisted Trainmaster Sickles
at tbe key here yesterday and last night a
new operatpr arrived to go on duty and
at once, went to work. Asst. Supt.
Ilobbs held down a key at Bureau June
tion yesterday but a number of new men
passed through the cicy on their way
west last night and two more were in
town today looking for a vacancy.
Both Side Still Confident.
Chief Rmsiy still insists that the men
will win tbe day saying that it will not
be a hard matter for the company to
handle business between this city find
Chicago on account of its double tracks,
but that further west tbe order is stronger
and tbe company cannot fill the placer of
the strikers so easy. He also inim'-g
that other men may be called out arrj
that o her branches of the train s;rvic
may enlist their sympathies. It is claimed
als) that assuracciB have b:en re
ceived of the lctyal'v of the latter to the
operators' cause. Oa the other hand the
officials are firm as ever and are confi
dent that the strike wiil not materially
affect their lines
The O. B. T. Noi Kecog-nuwd.
General Manager St.. John still states
that he will treat with a grievance com
mittee representing the employees of the
Roek Island road, bat that he will rot

of Railway Telegraphers. As the mit
ter thus stands there is no immediate ad
justment of tbe difference probable, and
it wi 1 be fought oat on the present
