-TAKING A TUMBLE.
Promise or a Break I'p la World's Fair
Kates Railway Notes.
, The rush towards Chicago seems
to be on the wane. For a while every
train passing through thecity going
to the city of the World's fair was
crowded, and frequently extra
coaches had to be added here to ac
commodate the people. While there
is considerable travel to Chicago still
the rush has abated. This is due to
the fact that the vast majority of the
well-to-do people have already been
to Chicago, have seen the fair and
have returned. The middle classes
and the toilers, cannot afford to go,
or at least feel that they cannot spend
the amount of money required to pay
railway fare, etc., at the present
rates, "and unless a low rate of fare is
made will remain at home. What
will be done in the matter of railway
rates the future can only decide. Al
ready, however, something has oc
curred that may lead to a general
break up of rates in this state. The
Jacksonville Southeastern has made
a rate of 3.5!) for the round trip
from Jacksonville to Chicago, the
regular excursion rate that has been
running being $8.35 for the round
trip. The Chicago & Alton then of
fered a $2.75 rate and the Wabash
followed suit, and now the merry war
is on. People are going fromQuincy
and points on the Q"' around bv
Jacksonville to secure the cheap
rates, and now the Burlington will be
forced to do something. It is thought
that the ball has been started.
