The peo ple wanted the road, ami wanted it badly, but they lacked continence in the ultimate success of the project. Ther were rather inclined to the lie licf that the chief contractors sought mainly to obtain the right of way for purely sjeculative purposes, and that once securing it some would be come fleeced, and the road choked oil at LaSaWe. Jam 4c larnam were the engi neers having the contract, and the afternoon nf the day Messrs. War ner and Whitman put loot in Kock Island a great mass meeting was to have been held at the court honse. at which Mr. Farnam was to speak, but the people had become so convinced as to what was the purpose of t he engi neers that tbey would not permit Mr. Farnam to speak until he had printed and distributed handbills bearing a statement from John War ner that the latter bad been given a sub-contract to do the grading and tone work west, to and across the Mississippi river at this point. The circulation of these handbills turned a prevailing sentiment of doubt into a spirit of general rejoicing, and an elaborate public reception was tendered Mr. Warner. Mr. Warner built the road, but he was oblignd to commence grading operations several months in advance of the time anticipated, in Jorder to damonstrate to the satisfaction of the people that the company be rep resented really meant business. He was equal to the emergency, and the portion of the great system con structed onder his supervision has proved one f the best graded strips of the road.
