All previous records in passenger
traffic have been completely outdone
during the past two days, and be it
said a credit to the trunk lines lead
ing toward Chicago from the great
west, they have met the demands of
the situation, though it must be said
it has crowded them somewhat
to do it. The Koek Island
has been hustled to its utmost capac
ity, but has gotten there, and what is
better, up to noon today had landed
all who had entrusted themselves to
its care, in safety in the big citv,
which is being honored today. As
far as the (.'.. H. & (. and C. M. &
St. 1'.. 1 he two other lines in which
Hock Island is interested, are con
cerned, it is reported they have made
equally proud records on their main
lines, and have hauled people into

sands. The Kiish I'ltpreci'clentiMi.
Here in Hock Island, which is one
of the principal terminal points on

the magnitude of the rush Chicago

the Hock Island depot. Commenc
ing Saturday the C. H. I. & P. run

and all were jammed, people stand

of the coaches', and, in fact, riding
