MAY BE TROUBLE.-
Resulting From the Proposed
Rock Island Reduction.
ENGINEERS AEE NOT SATISFIED,
A Committee ioo to Chicago to Conrer
With the OtlirlalH and Interpoxe Strong
Olijertions (ioneral News Concerning
the Iron "lo.-xe unci the Men who Drive
There may be something interest
ing grow out of the proposed 10 per
cent reduction in the salaries of
trainmen in the employ of the Rock
Island road, unless the discussion of
the matter runs along without ac
tion being taken until the period
during which the tut was to be made
shall have elapsed. The Alters has
spoke of the pronounced opposition
of the switchmen to any such course.
If the trackmen propose to offer
stern resistance to I he policy of re
trenchment., the engineers, from
what can be- learned today, will not
be far behind them. As a matter of
course, the knights of the throttle
are as reticent as the railroad olli
cials themselves about what they
propose to do under certain circum
stances, but it is not necessary to
ask too many ijuestions to ascertain
how they would receive a proposi
tion to reduce the amount of their
earnings 10 per cent for say, UO'davs.
The engineers are not talking "about
what t hey propose to do, however,
in view of any suggestion
that may have been made
them touching the question of
wages. It is known, nevertheless,
that the brotherhood of locomotive
engineers has a commit tee in Chi
cago now conferring with the offi
cials of the road on liipoint of the
reductions. The committee did hot
go for the purpose of submitting
graciously to all the suggestions
that might be made affecting the
income of the locomotive engi
neers. Whether thev will see
things in a different light when thev
get there and come home perfectly
satisfied that a reduction is just i fi-
aoic 011 me pari 01 me company, or
whether thev will return with their
loins girded for war remains to be
seen. Certain it is the brotherhood
will be guided by the result of the
com mi t tee's invest igat ions.

Freight business on the east end
of the Rock Island is not so bad for
this time of the year. The same
may be said of eastern roads, al
though western roads suffer mater
ially: The switchmen on the Rock Island
are still discussing the merits and
demerits of the 10 percent reduction,
and a great many of them still hold
to the idea that it is '-not- what it is
cracked up to be."
MAIMER AT THE CANAL.
Ceter XeNon Sufl'ern the I.ohh of a Limit
Killed in n Mine.
Unfortunate indeed was the acci
dent which befell Peter Nelson, of
Maquoketa. this morning on the
canal at about 0:30 o'clock. Mr. Nel
son was told to set the brake on a
dump car, and the brake being low,
he at tempted to jump from the car.
and in doing so lie slipped and fell
beneath the car in such a manner
that the right limb was crushed and
was amputated about half way be
tween the knee and the foot. The
man was brought to St. Anthony's
hospital, and Dr. Kearns. ot Moline,
and Dr. Williams, of Milan, perform
ed the operation. Mr. Nelson is now
resting easily and seems thankful for
his narrow escape from death.
