The Keren t .1 . S. K. Complication Other
The recent Santa Fe Jacksonville
Southeastern complication is a com
plex affair. There are several ways
of regarding it. That it is a cur
tailment of railroad accommodations
to begin with. It is estimated that
the J. S. K. union with the Santa Fe
took 1.500 people per month to
Peoria, who are now compelled to
trade elsewhere. Wes Kent is the
general passenger agent of the J. S.
E. and lie is a gooiPfriend of Peoria.
He is a capable man and a hard
working, conscientious oflicial. The
divorce of the two systems destroys
a creditable condition of travel which
he labored hard to establish and
which was, in short, the apple of his
eye professionally. It is probable,
too, that this system will not be set.
on its feet again. The Peoria Jour
nal says: "There will, of course, be
some kind of a readjustment. The
J. S. E. is already at work on a new
schedule with the Santa Fe left out.
mere are usually two sides to a
story. There always has been since
the initial yarn in which Adam and
Eve and tlie serpent were mixed up.
Thus far only one side, however, of
this railroad ruffle has been given to
the public, and it looks suspicious to
a man up a tree. The other side
seems to be based on tlie pernicious
hostility of the Alton road. The
Alton has suffered since the J. S. E.
started, and it now appears as if the
Alton had Hven the Santa Fe a
chance to make more in other tcrri
tory as compensation for sacrificing
the J. S. E. Of course, the Jackson
ville will prefer heavy claims for
damages, based on breach of contract
on the part of the Santa Fe.''

that Hock Island has the second larg

THE. PEOPLE'S WISH.
Fleet rlelty Sought a a Motive Powe on
the Bridge Line. 4
The Argus does not presume to
criticise the personal opinions of peo
ple as regards the adoption of elec
tricity as a motive power on the
bridge line. It cheerfully accords to
all the same right that it reserves it
self to hold whatever ideas may
stem right. There are, doubtless,
those in Hock Island, who, having
some doubts as to the safetv of elec
trie cars on the bridges, are disposed
to withhold endorsement of -the
petitions now in circulation, while
there are yet those who don't care a fig
about the matter either way. Hut it
to is not either category thus alluded
to that the few individuals belong
who are making a personal matter of
lighting the adoption of the electric
system, who are putting in time at
tempting to create an impression
that electric ears on the bridges
will be absolutely dangerous,
and whose remarkable interest in the
matter is carrying them so far as to
talk of sending emissaries to Wash
ington to thwart the movement look
ing to the extension of our electric
system across the government do
main. People actuated by a desire
solely to promote the good and safety
of the human family don't adopt such
a radical course of procedure. Men
are not, as a rule, neglecting busi
ness and running around trying to
do something to keep somebody else
troni getting hurt, lliev are not
built that way. Fortunately or un
fortunately, one or tlie other, those
who belong to this clement in Hock
Island who are opposed to the elec
tric cars on the ground of safety niav
be numbered on your fingers.
The People's Wish.
Tlie petitions now in circulation in
the three cities do not indicate that
theri is anv great amount of fear ex
isting among the people, as a whole,
as to the safety of electric cars on
the bridges, or elsewhere. Thev be
lieve that what has been true in oth
er cities similarly situated will be
equally applicable here. Thev don't
take any stock in the theory that
electric cars will work any greater
danger on tlie Hock Island bridges
than thev do on other bridges where
conditions are almost identica'l
They don't see why the rich man
horse in Hock Island, Davenport, or
Moline should not be educated into
submission to the approach of the
poor man's carriage the same as he
lias been in other cities. Tlie peo
ple, as a whole, do not see why be
cause a man may be fortunate
enough to ow n a fierv team he should
have any more privileges n the gov.
ermcnt island than their vehicle.
They know that with the substitu
tion of electric for horse power on
the bridges the time between the
two cities will be reduced one-half
that aside from the benefits thev will
receive, a company which hasexpen
decf Sf.K ,1X10 in public improvement
on the bridges and island, ought not
to be made to stand aside in the inter
est of a corporation that has no pub-
lie intcrst there or in cither eit v other
than what it rings out of the people
traveling from shore to shore.
The Ai;;rs believes in letting tin
people be hoard in tins matter, and it
hoi.es and believes the authorities at
Washington will act in accordance
with the voice of the people as shown
bv the petitions now in circulation.
