Congressman Charles 1). Haines, of
Kinderbrook, representing; the Nine
teenth district of New York in the
lower branch of the national legisla
ture, was at the Harper last night on
his way from Freeport to Iowa City,
at both of which cities he owns valu
able street railway franchises. Not
long since Mr. Haines acquired pos
session of tlie street railway at Free
port, now operated by horse power,
and his recent visit to that city was
to secure the passage of an ordinance
permitting him to equip the system
with electricity. The council of that
city held an important special ses
sion Monday evening to consider the
matter. It took two hours to read
the ordinance by sections, and the
Bulletin says of Mr. Haines: "The
gentleman is a sharp, shrewd busi
ness man and he is not overlooking
anything that will prove to bo to his
interest, lie listened with the ut
most patience to the proceedings last
night and coollv ana calmlv made
his objections to what he thought
would prove to be detrimental to hi
own interests, lie is a forcible ant
entertaining speaker; he speak
slowly and not m a passionate
After detailing a number of see
tions to which Mr. Haines took ex
ception and the adjusting of the
same, one of which extended his fran
chise from '2l to .r vears, the Hulle
When the clerk read the thirteenth
section of the ordinance Mr. Haine
was very attentive and when the
clerk had linished reading it he sait
that it was an imposition on himself
and the company that he represents
1 lie provision ot the ordinance 1
that the street car company shall be
responsible for any and all accident
that shall occur along the line of th
system, thus leaving the city exempt
from damage suits that might follow
accidents. Haines claims that there
is not an ordinance in force any
w here that places the above rotne
tions on a railroad company. II
savs that the statutes of the state do
not show such a state of affairs. Mr
Stearns argued that the section was ail
right and that if it is omitted from
the ordinance the citv may become
responsible for accidents that might
occur. To this Mr. Haines said that
all corporations are sued before 1
city. If an accident happens on 1
railroad passing through Freeport
the people never sue the city. It i
the corporation that they look to for
their damages. Mr. Haines'' objec
tion to the section in the ordinance
received a tie vote among the alder
men on the call of the ayes and nays
and Mayor .Nciman settled tue ques
tion bv voting to knock the section
Is a ISMklway Kntlin.last.
And so it was with pretty much
every section of the ordinance Mr.
Haines objected to. He knows hi:
business thoroughly, takes hU
ground well, and generally gets
there. An Audit's representative
who hail a pleasant chat with him on
a train coming into lioek leland last
night found that street railways was
a great hobby with him, and quite
a profitable one, too. lie owns a
great manv systems. is an en
thusiast on the subject, and as fast
as he acquires a franchise he
improves the road and oquips it with
electricity, if it is not already ro
equipped. Thus the cities of Free
port and Iowa City have been bene
fitted bv this railway enthusiast just
as the cities of Rock Island, Daven
port and Moline have protitted by
the inreftmcnt here of the Chicago
capitalists. While pleased with what
he saw of the tri-city electric system
Mr. Haines was surprised that elec
tric cars are excluded from the
bridges between Hock Island and
A Urast MuocesB.
There are many remarkable suc
cesses ou the road this season, but
none exceed the popularity enjoyed
by the latest New York sucoess, "She
Couldn't Marry Three." Tress and
public accord it au ovation wherever
presented. The scenic effects are
superb, the story an intense and in
teresting one, uulike the many un
reasonable and unnatural plays with
which the public are surfeited. It
is full of hearty laughter, bright and
catchy music, the most sensational
The company is one of the strong
est on the road, the scenery the most
magnificent ever built, and as the
curtain rises on each act, prolonged
applause attest the public apprecia
tion of each beautiful stage picture.
The great scenic artists, Messrs.
Daniel Crimmins and Herbert Speck,
feel justly proud of their work on
In Magistrate Wivill's court this
morning the case in replevin grow
ing out of the recent Grammerstorf
Hansen trouble came up for hearing.
It was as to the proper ownership of
the anonymous letter and as the de
fendant Granimerstorf did not ap
pear, judgment was entered against
him. The assault and battery case
comes up tomorrow afternoon. .
THE SCHNELL CLUB.
Kntertaiiiiiiff Protrrammo Presented
A large and thoroughly apprecia
tive audience gathered at the rooms
of the Schnell Social and Literary
club in the B 11 ford block last even
ing to listen to the regular
monthly entertainment of that or
ganization.. The handsome parlors

The opening numlior was a charm
ingly rendered piano solo by Miss

by an address on "Our Club" by J.W.
The speaker traced the history of
the organization from the small be
ginning and of its benetits to the
vouug men in a social and intellec
tual way, and wished it a bright and
prosperous future. J. Frank Kane
then recited "Over the Hills From
the Poor Ho usfc" in a more than
pleasing manner, after which came a
well rendered piano solo by Mrs. D.
Maekin. A recitation by Sliss Lizzie
Murray, with a piano accompani
ment by her sister, Miss Jennie Mur
ray. A piano duet by the Misses B.
Kochc and Lucy MetJuinn was the
next number that received a well de
served encore and was followed by
remarks by Kcv. Father Mackin.
The programme was closed by the
singing of "The Man that Broke the
Bank at Monte Carlo," by Will Egan.
The programme, upon the whole,
was admirably arranged and well
carried out, being one of the most
enjoyable of the season.

tiled the papers in the office of tin
circuit clerk for a suit for $3,000 of
Rosa Hotter against the city of Hock

Another suit against the city has
been brought by J. L. Bean asking
the citv of Hock Island to compen
sate him to the amount of $500 for

Manv anxious inquiries are being
heard as to whether the new frame
buildin"- in course of erection on
Twentieth street is the beginning of
the long looked for union depot. For
th benefit of those it may be said
that it is not, but on the contrary the
imposing structure is a new office for
the Fort Byron Lime assoiation. It
will no doubt be a hnndsome piece of
architecture, and Manager Mattison
of th association should have it
thoroughly explained that it is not
construed as his contribution to
the ornaments of spencer square.
