I a-aaa a - " Burlington's Building Plans Are Postponed. POOS EU3IHEES IS THE OAUSF. tioo. She it now vi.iting in Chicago. Charles Mitchell, who was dij- misaed several months ago fcr fol lowing too close behind a train croas- ne the bridge, has been reinstated as switch engine engineer for the Rock Island. Drawing Cam pU ted far Bandaoma an Conmodtoa Depot Work am Which It Is tuoml Wilt B Bran Not Later Than Haxt Saaaon. It is official' t announced that no work will be done on the Chicago, Burlington & Qaincv railway's con templated depot at the corner of Second avenue and Twentieth street tois season. The cause assigned is dull business. Officials of the But- ington say that while the company proposes carrying out to the letter every detail in the original plans with reference to the depot question, it will nut be doue until .another year. flans of the new depot are aU completed. They rail for a 2-story building of pressed brick with fctoue tritnmiugs. The depot will face on Twentieth street where the company has acquired about ninety-three feet for building purposes, while on Second ave nue the deput proper will occupy something like 150 feet. Ea-1 of this will bo the freight house and store houses. Then another reason for not com mencing on the building now is owing to the latenes of the season. fearing that winter would ateal in upon roclliess walls and result ia much damage. But when the depot s completed and that will be but a few brief moons after work is started in the spring one of the handsome- est and most commodious in this sec tion of the state is promised; one that will be a credit to the city and to tho Burlington system. Book UUad Chans'. A dispatch from Des Moines says that it is officially announced that the Chicago, Bock Island & Pacific road will next spring center its ma chinery department tor Iowa in Val ley junction, a suburb of Dcs Moines. adjoining the city on the west. Tbe company has let contracts for build ing a new 22-staIl roundhouse in ad dition to one 10-stall just completed at Valley Junction, also for a new engine shop of the same size as the one now iu operation. Further, a car shop 250x1 5 J feet, the largest in Iowa, has been contracted for. Tbe vards will be doubled in capacity. The shops at Stuart and Brooklyn will be closed down and the machin ery and equipment brought to Val ley junction. 1 he road has con traded with the persons at Valley Junction who donated them the real estate to bring to that town sixty train crews of an average five men each, and all the machinists at Brooklyn and Stuart except a few for local repair work. J heiiuestion which naturally occurs to one is where all those train crews are coming from. While railroad men who have families and properly in Rock Island view thi contemplated change with much seriousness. many of them feeling that n means their transfer to Valley Junc tion, local officials say that this point win not lie alTected unless for the butter. This has become a crave matter and one in which Rock I-land business men should interest them selves, and should affairs develop ac- coruing lo me opinion ol people well postca in railway matters, the con- sequence would be the removal to alley Junction of nearly one hun dred families. A large tract of land has been donated to the railroad company at Valley Junction in re turn lor which it has agreed to in crease the population of that town to a certain extent. Then the com pany may also be figuring on the disposition of its land to employes end building op that town at the expense of Rock Inl and. Hence it will be seen that quite a serious question is confront ing tne people ol this city, and in order to set it at rest one way or the otner, business men should interest themselves. Some railway em ployes now think that they will be located at Valley Ju action, which will be made the distributing point of the east Iowa division, and be obliged to run both ways be. tween the Junction and Council Bluffs and from the Junction to Rock Island. But, however, there is the pleasant side to look at, as referred to in Tbk Ar;u9 of last Saturday, in the prospect of the abolition of Brooklyn and Stuart as division ter minals that is the hope that manv new train crews will come here to live. It all depends on the distriba ting point ii tne men are to run first in first out of Valley Junction it will be a serious blow to Rock Island.

In 1873 he entered the Rock Island Na tional bank as bookkeeper, and there throngh his painstaking industry he acquired the knowledge of business methods which laid the foundation for his future.
