Not a Wise Idea.
Apparency a change has taken place
of late in tbe local management of the
street railway lines. From appearances
a number of tbe motorm8n and con
ductors have -discarded their uniforms
and taken up the running of the svst-m
The result is not entirely tatisfact- ry lo
the public. This was demonstrated the
other night for instance when the car io.
or Moline people after attending the
theatre in Rock Island were dumped out
at tne Moline avenue car barns and told
to get home the best they could, and
while they were fortunate enough to se
cure a conveyance, it broke d.wn
and th morning was breaking
when they finally readied home.
Aga:n. a few weeks before, a party of
Rock Island people returning from Chi
cago, fully a cr lond in all, had to dicker
with a motorman and conductor in order
to he brought down towu at all, and then
he car was turned back a ccuole of
times by the crew, who seemed anxious
ot displaying the authority with wliicb
it was vested, before they were landed
down town, although the people wer
williog to pay any price to be brought
down. Numerous complaints have come
to the A nous of similar acts
of ovtrbearaace on the part of car
men, which tbe company should
rectify, all showing that it would oe
a much wiser plan for the company to
restore its proper superintendents to
power, and the result will be better ap
pearing men, tbe cara will all be desig
nated bv the full complement of siitns as
originally designed by tne com-iany,
there will be less broken windows, h
holes in the sides of the cars, the cars
better heated, and the Dublic will b- bel

The strike on the Rock Islao to all
appearances, is not changing much in

the men it needs, all tbe offices on tbe
Iowa lines being now occupied. wbil
those on this division have Veen for a
couple of days. There was a meeting
of the Brotherhood of L cimotive Fire

Rock Island is still a matter of cor jectun
The Chicago papers today report that
Chief Ramsay may call out tbe men on
the Northwestern, bnt as not much help
was received from that direction it is not
probat le that this will be done. Manager
St. John, of the Rock Island, declares
that the -company has won the strike, and
says thf.t more appli;ations are on hand
for positions than can be given places.
The reports that come from the west th t
the company is no. riencing trouble in
handling its trains f.ri stoutly denied
the company's rep-esentativs. It seem
now that the outcome of the strike de
pends upon the other hr.mcbei of t

would be a h ird matter lo guess.

The operatois held a. meeting in the

was present and the result was that the
