Complaints Against serr1c fur nished by tho Tri-Ctty Railway company on the Elm street line tn Bock Island were made by citi zens of the east bluff district at the city hall this moraine and de mands made that some action be taken with the company to force through a better service plan. Mayor Harry M. Schriver and the four- city commissioners heard the complaints tad announced that they would take the matter up with the company Immediately. Strenuous objections were made by the citizens of the way they are crowded into the cars during the early morning and evening rushes. It was claimed that eren by crowding the cars In every nook the company Is unable to care for the traffic. Persons are left on street corners until the next car comes along and the entire service was held to be deplorable. Attention was called to the city officials of the promise made by tne company to tne state utilities commission when the 7-cent fare was granted that extra cars would be run on the Elm street, Watch Tower and Long View lines. It was pointed out that trippers were put on the Watch Tower and the Elm street lines for a few days and men tne service dropped. Switches In If rong Place. Several plans were suggested for the betterment of the service. The company operates six cars on the KTUTwV. A i VV f V VitU ! OUCH!

Rock Island, and let - passengers transfer on the Third and Fourth avenue lines for the trip on to tbe west end of the city. It was claim ed that by this plan the schedule could be quickened and the six cars carry as many passengers as seven or eight., would by making ine run trip. However, it was claimed by the commissioners that citlsens in the west end of the city would strenuously object-to a cur tailment 01 their service In behalf of citizens living in the east end. Extra cars pr connecting switches along the line was said to be the only solution for the situation. The line is single track with the excep tion of switches tor passing points along most of the run. Consider able time was lost due to blind switches on Sixth and Seventh ave nues in Rock Island. Double Switches Bad. The switch on Sixth avenue runs fmn ill mi i' m 1 niflf rQ waabiostoo Street.

Fourth Ave. ana imub St a. i. isse. from Twenty-third to Twenty-flfth street, , the tracks then continue over to Seventh avenue where there la a switch between Twenty-seventh and Twenty-eighth streets. The crews on a car on either switch could not know when -the other car was coming and were frequently held up 1-0 minutes waiting for the other car' to run over, or, as was done In many Instances, an effort to run over to the next switch would prove futile and one - or other of the cars would have to back up. This phase of the situa tion was taken care of about three months ago when the company put in signal lights, which are operated by the crews. The boxes are at tached to the poles and it Is neces sary for the motorman or con ductor to get out to turn the signal light on. Much of the time lost on the line was thus eradicated, but another serions hitch Is confronted on Fourteenth.avenu. -. There is av switch, between Thir tieth and- Thirty-second streets and a stretch of 20 block! to Fourth street. Moline, with only one switch In between. This middle switch starts at Thirty-sixth street and ends at Thirty-ninth street Cars headed for Moline are continually held up for Rock Island bound cars to come over from . Thirty sixth street, being held up from one to two minutes, and on numer ous occasions Rock Island bound cars are held , back by - Moline bound cars running over from the Thirtieth to the Thirty-sixth street switch. Train crews claim that if these two twitches were connected 1 by double track, necessitating a new strewn or lour diocks, practic ally all the hindrances would be taken cars of. According to figures compiled by the company last sum mer the Elm street line is the sec ond best paying line on this side of the river, and patrons of the line say that this is a- big reason why the company should give ef ficient service.
