A union depot'is no more merely
a. suestion, but now seems an abso
lute neees.sit y. This was clearly
showii this week. When passenger
traffic is rushing we have no room to
handle it. Trains have been run in
sections the j ast week on account of
the enormous travel to Chicago.
Ihiring this time trains wen- strung
from the Roc Island depot to the
bridge crossing the slough, and on
several oceas ons w est bound trains
were also Mo -ked -passenjiiT as well
as freight. Then the (. M. & St. 1.
trains, which use the ltock Islam!
tracks out l here, were delaved as
well. The b ocking of west bound
trains, of course, will soom be reme
died when the double track across
the slough bridge is completed, but
the blocking of cast bound trains
cannot be remedied until some other
arrangement is made. With a union
depot trains could run in when they
come am! lea ve on time, and not be
delayed 15 or 20 minutes to get into
the depot ya-ds. and then be obliged
to wait or 10 minutes before follow
ing the trail preceding.
Would Im' a SiU'ce-s.
Uock Islard is now enough of a
railroad ecu' re to warrant the suc
cess of such a project, and in cities,
not near as large, nor not handling
near the passenger trailie that roads
running into Uock Island do, vou
will lind uni n depots. No doubt tlio
C. K. I.. & P. depot is somewhat of
a union depot, but its location is a
seriou obst icle, not only geograph
ically speaking, but because of its
close proxinJtv to the place where
t he bulk of i lie freight switching is
done. Again, when a train is an
nounced, which is not a freuuent oc
currence, p.-opie ru-h out of the
depot onto the platform and verv
often onto the tracks. Switch en
gines are constantly running up and
down past the depot, and accidents
are unavoid ible. 1( we had a union
depot with gates, no one would be
apt to get upon the tracks ior the
rin i im Kiti
Froin ve -tenia v on railroads from
here to Chicago the fare was reduced
to one fare 'or the round trip. The
prevailing i'lipresion i- that the fare
alter (let. l.i will oe one cent per
miic from lock Inland, but theC,
K. I. vV I', and the C IV iV Q. em
phatically deny this, and claim that
from all points at lea-t : 1 miles or
more from Chicago the cut to one
cent per mill' applies. The 1!.. ('. K.
.V N. however has advertised one
cent a mKc from ail points on its
lines and Ih s is accountable perhap-.
for the erroneous impression.

out of Chicago on the Illinois divi
sion of the Uock Ilaud was killed at
Ultle Island yesterday, by jumping
from his engine to avo'.d a supposed
accident, thinking a ool!i.-ion im

made nervi us hy the accidents which
have heen occurring in different
parts of lh country recently. When
running at high speed, at a point be
tween Chi -ago and lihie Island.
Wells saw a light ahead, and lieliev
ing it to be an engine coming toward
him on the same track, he thought to
save his lif by jumping. He struck
cither a bridge or a rocky place and
was terribly bruised and broken,
death resulting almost instantly.

worthy of the club, and add much to

audience than that of last year the
