DAVENPORT WINS CASE
OVER THE DIAMOND JO.
The supreme court of Iowa has
decided the case of the city of Daven
port against the Diamond Jo Steam
boat company in favor of the city.
The ct'o was tiled before Judge Wolfe
in 1898 and was by him decided Id
favor of the city. 1 he court held that
the city had a right to control the
river front for levee purposes; that it
had the rigat to give to the railroad
company the right of way across the
property and that the only question
was the price that should be paid
Njw wonder if the Diamond Jo will
rudely chastise Davenport as it has

MOLINE BRIDGE CLOSED:
REPAIRS ON STRUCTURE.
A force of men has been put at
work to raise the middle span of the
Moline bridge to Rock I-land arsenal
three and a half feet When the ex
tension to the wiDg dam was built
the water in the pool wa raided more
than three feet, for which reason it
was necessary to raise the bridge
span to permit of barges and dredges
passing under in the work of keeping
the water power in repair. The four
other tpans will inclin from either
-hore toward the middle span, neces
sitating me mis'ng of all the spans
exc pr. the euds or the outside spins
tvnicti re it on the ahore abutments.
b bridge will rlo be replanked and
repa nt. d fr m funds appropriated by
the giverament- Mj Blunt an
nounces that the structuro will be
closed to travel for several wetks.
Alcohol jtcks, Binall enough to go
in a cracker box, each cipablo of lift
ing oO tons, are being used. They
are c.iupo-ed of a series ef valves
inside of a mass of steel strongenough
to stand the pressure of this weight,
Tbe valves are title 1 with alcohol,
rather than water, which would frcezo
in cold weather and by means of a
lo g lever, which works like a pump
handle, pressure is brought to bear
upon a cjIuoiq of alcohol about the
size of a dime. Thus the alcohol Is
compressed a little, but finally it can
take no smaller space and forces out
the cieat valve, which raises the
bridge With the two jtcks a lifting
power of 200 000 pounds is obtained.

the average farce is only a step "be

TAKE A TBIP THROUGH TABES
Rock Island to Have the Shortest
Line to the Pacific
A special car bearing the construe
tion cllioials of the Q was in the city
for a time this morning, having come
in attached to the regular early train
from the north. The car was backed
down to the Crescent bridge, where
the party made an official inspection
The t llicial- who were hee were
Consulting Engineer L W- Blake
Chief Engineer W. C Breckenridge
and J O loom superintendent of
bridges and construction on tbe St.
Louis division. There was a report
current that the visit was more for
the purpose of looking over the
gronnd with a view to possible tract
txtensi n than to ascertaining the
pre-ent condition of tbe road.
Rock Island' Short Root.
Although official confirmation U
lacking there is little reason to doubt
thit a close traffics agreement has
been entered into between the Rock
Island and the Siutbern Pacific both
as to passenger and freight business.
Whether the agreement also includes
the Santa f"e Is not known, but it is
presumed that bifore long matters
will be arranged so that there will be
no cutting of rites, at least, when the
Rock Island's El Pts d line is opened.
It is not generally understood that
when the line is in opcrttion the
Rock Island will have tbe shortest
route between Chicago and Los An
geles by way of El Pso. Few of the
problems of mountain railroading
which confront the other California
lines will bother the Rock Island,
accordingly there will be nothing in
the way of making fast time The
new line will, it is expected, be
openel for business late in December
or early in January The position
tbe Santa Fe will take is being
watched with interest. The theory of
community of interests nas secured a
strong hold, and it is not likely that
there will be any light over the Cali
fornia business. " I; is probable that
the tint of the year will see the three
lines in a traffic agreement which
shall define limits as to territory and
tbe amounts of certain c asses of bus
iness to be enjoyed by each.
DE YEAGER MAY DIE

HOME FOR MASONS'
ORPHANS AND WIDOWS
In the closing hours of its annual
session yesterday at Stndebaker hall.
Chicago, the Illinois grand lodge of
Masons voted to accept the bequest of
264 acres of farm land in Moultrie
county left by Robert A. Miller, and
appointed a committee to devise ways
and means by which the provisions of
the will might be carried out. There
was a determined tight against the
acceptance of the land, the grand
lodge on many occasions having re
fused to receive gifts of land and
The acceptance of the bequest
means that in a few years there will
be a home for the needy widows and
orphans of Masons in Illinois, Mr.
Mil er having stipulated that the land
should be devoted to that purpose.
After hearing the reports of the
committees and installing the new
officers the grand lodge adjourned,
mot of the members leaving tho city
before dark. The Order of Eastern
Star also adjourned its annual session
at Medinah temple at 3 o'clock.
