J.ariy next week the Uitision sup
erintt ndcuts of the Kock Island road
will hold a meeting in Chicago to dis
cuss the features that it is consid
ered adv isablc to incorimrate in the
annual spring time table," which will
go' into effect during he middle
April. The special additions to be
made to the jsern'ce are the usual

vision from Davenport. This latter
train is expected to be of considerable
While of course it is impossible to
forecast what decision as to time wiJI

it is generally believed the new train
will Ih put on to pass through Kock

and the efforts that were recently
put forth by local merchants to t-e-cure
sonic such service on the Kock
Island iis this mny now lear fruit.
Uencseo will be a regular stopping
place, and that will lie wort h . some
thing, even !f no other stops are
made. The westbound trains on the
southwest- division are expected to
pass through Kock Island about 1,
o'clock in the afternoon. These
rains will be daily.
For the through Kocky Mountain
service there is a lisposit ion this
year to make n chance whereby one
of the regular trains now on will be
changed somewhat to cover the busi
ness rather than to put on a. new
train as has been done during the
past two seasons. This- will be

The I'eoria road will of course
make up a new time-table Ui gojnto
efTect whin the one on the Koek Is
land does. As the time of the I'eoria
trains must necessarily be governed
by that of the ones oh the big road
with which they will connect, so it
will be useless to do much figuring
til! the latter is through. It'is hojH'd,
however, that some way .may be
found to use one of the trains now
runtime instead of put line -n a new
train as was done last ymr.
