Work has been commeneeil in earn
est on the remodeling of the C, II. I.
& P. round house, and the structure
that has stood out in bold relief there
for so many years now looks shat
tered and ruined. The south por
tion of the building has been dis
mantled of its roof and is being torn
completely away. Only about one
third of the old building will be torn
down, or in other words about a
dozen stalls are being taken out.
The house originally had 42 stalls,
but a part of the room was used for
machinery, etc., so the house held
about 40 engines when crowded.
About 12 stalls are now being torn
away and the remaining ones, togeth
er with the new wing, which will
hold about 20. will make room for
about 55 engines, as it is understood
that another building will also be
erected separate for the machine
shops so that all the room can be
utilized for storing engines. A large
gang of masons are at work on the
foundation for the new building,
which is to be just east and adjoin
ing the present structure. When
finished the new structure will pre
sent the appearance of other modern
round houses, most of which are be
ing built with a flat roof, and semi
circular instead of round as former
ly. The new arrangements will give
considerable additional yard room,
something that has been badly
needed for some time.

The relative advantages of large

The consensus of opinion is that the
American GO.oOO pound capacity cars
are the best in the world for bulky

however, there is a changing opinion
in favor of smaller cars. The reason
for this is that the larger cars are
seldom loaded to their capacity with
package or local freight owing to the
difficulty of sorting the freight and
unloading at local stations.

street Car .
The Davenport Democrat relates
sonic Ival street railway history as
The lirst street cars that wore used
in Davenport were made by John
Stephenson, of New York, and cost
about $(imi each. When the Hrady
street line was built a few years later
in l7l. a few cars wen' built by
Woebcr Hros.. of Davenport, but
proving rat her heavy for hill work,
wore sold to tho Third .-trcet line,
and some of them were in use when
the electric syndicate took control a
few years ago. John Stephenson
built the first street cars used in
America. Tho tirst car of tho kind
was built by him in ls:?i, to go upon
the lirst street car line thai was first
put in operation in Now York, No
vember -!". s:5- Mr. Stcpln-nson is
yet living in that city at the ripe age
of s:i. lie built more than lO.OOO
streetcars during his career. The
cost of tho average horse car was
about ssuo. The cost of a lirst-class
electric st root car is about 5.o;M.
There are now in operation in the
United States about :;.." I st root cars
and they arc rapidly increasing.
The Democrat is mistaken as to its
observat ions aboil t the cars built in
17:? for the Hrady street line which
were not put up in Davenport but
wore turned out by Hoover A; Smith
of this citv. There wore three in
number, but they were too heavy for
Hrady street hill and one was sold,
the other two being kept for big days
until a few years ago.
On the Kock Island and Moline
side the John Stephenson cars were
tho first used, and later a couple of
cars of the Laclede company of St.
Louis were purchased, and when the
syndicate took jxissession it put on
six cars of the St. Louis Car company
make, and the remainder of the
closed cars purchased were 1 he La
clede design, though the open cars
were made by the Calumet company
of Chicago. Tho cars on the original
Milan line were built by the Hrownell
Ai Wight company, of St. Louis.
All the electric cars at present run
ning in the three cities 5'i in num
ber were built by the St. Louis Car
company, except those on the Moline
Central, which are either Pullman or
the Hrill Car company stylo of Phila
