MARCUS IS RECOGNIZED, His Plan for an Undor-ground Railway Loop will Win. Just What Chicago has want od for Years. Construction to be on plan of Gucla Pesth Road. The Chicago Times-Herald of Sunday last devotes over a page to the cuts and plans of the new railway scheme which our former townsman Marcus Pollasky, a prominent lawyer, has proposed for that city. Chicago, like the other large cities of the world, lias tendered to congest In r business interests into a small portion of her large area and dining the busy hours of the day tratlic is necessarily hindered by the mass of people crowding and jostling Utween Polk St. and the Chicago river. The electric street car has become a nuisance and of little use owing to the delays caused by the crowded tracks, so in many casts the council has found it essential that they refuse the right of way for such purposes. Then too, the Chicago river oilers a very perplexing problem to the railroad company since the run over it must be made largely on draw bridges, which the law says must open for tin ship. The increased demand lias compelled the cars to be run every forty-five seconds, so when they reach the river in case of a vessel passage, six or eight cars are blocked on each side. Other cities passing through similar experiences have tried various met hods of solving the problem but have been only partially successful. Marcus Pollasky! is a genuine American Yankee and he conceived an idea that the way to run the cars through the crowded streets-; was not to run them there at all, but to run them by means of a loop beneath the ground. He made the subject a careful and thoughtful investigati n and was continued in his views u four years ago he laid the plan for t!;e loop or Subway before the couneil 1 Chicago and such men a Lyu.au Gage, now Secretary of Treasury, gave him hearty support. Hut the plan a. laughed at by the couneil and Pollasky was hailed as an idiot or as laboring under a terrible halucination. So the matter was laid aside. Since that time the same system has been adopted by Boston and several large cities and has been fully perfected and operated by that thriving city of Bohemia, Euda Petsh. Mr. Pollasky has recently been in that city and given a careful study of the working of the system finding it a grand success. Inspired by this he has made another effort and this time Chicago receives him with open arms and is prepared to undertake the work. We cannot explain the system in de tails as our space is limited. Approach es or stations are placed at every corner to receive passengers and lower them to the track. The tunnel through which the tracks run will be made of iron, be brilliantly silvered and lighted by elec tricity so that one can see to read with perfect ease. Air currents will keep the atmosphere cool and pure. On emerging from the tunnel the trains will run out on there own tracks without any inter ruption. The underground way will be six and a ouarttr miles long. The cost of the project will be $s,0uo,oo0. A company has been formed to constrict the lino if the council favors the move. Furtherit might bo said that Mr. Pollas. ky is working for the city as well as for himself for he provides that at tin end of twenty years the entire plant may pass into the hands of the city on payment of the cost of construction ai d expense to the company. The plan is a magnanimous one and will be a preat credit to Mr. Pollasky'a ability. The Rkcoi:i join the citizens of Alma in wishing for the success of the project.

Remembered bo the lives and deeds of our comrades who have gone to bivouac with the dead. Like tired children they laid down by the way side and fell asleep and wo pause to drop a soldier's tear and deck their graves with beautiful flowers. How expressing at this tinio is the language of the pansy, "Think of Mo" and tho blue violet, that magic word, Love." Comrades, show the world your loyalty to tho memory of thoso who were loyal to their country's need. Let tlio exercises be of such a nature that it will indeed be a memorial day and not a holidav.
