ROCK ISLAND. ILL
ENACTMENT INTO LAW ASSURED
Preparations for . Resuming
provenicns in This City
The bill for the relief of the Tri
City Railway company, in view of the
decision of the Illinois supreme court
holding that the franchises on this
side of the river were not legal as
having- been granted to a foreign cor
poration, now avnis the signature of
Gov. Yates. 'Yesterday afternoon it
passed the upper house of. the legisla
ture without opposition, and having
already passed th-j lower honse, its
approval by the governor is. now con
sidered assured. .
The progress 'hat the measure has
made is gratifying to those who have
the best interest- of the city at heart.
It points to a-n early resumption of
the improvements that the company
has begun in thk city and a renewal
of the impetus to the upbuilding of
the outlying distrie's that the new
lines will reach, "which hail lagged mo
mentarily in ti:e uncertainty that ex
isted.. Hon. K. Hurst has represented
the Tri-City Kail way company, not
only in the preparation of the meas
ure, but in presenting the essential
importance of it to the members of
the two houses of the general assem
bly, and he speaks highly of the ef
forts in behalf of the bill, not only on
the part of the local members of the
house, but of Representative Cooke,
of Mercer county, who, recognizing
.the importance :f the act to the cit
ies of Pock Island and Molin, not
only worked for it, but made-a speech
in behalf of it before the house at the
time it came up for passage. The fact
that it encountered no dissenting
voice in either branch of the legisla
ture is the best evidence of the merits
of the bill..
Letting Contracts for Material.
In earnest of the, company's inten
tion to proceed forthwith to make
the extensions planned on this side,
it was stated by General Manager .1.
I Lardner today Unit contracts arc
being closed for the remainder of the
material needed, and everything will
be gotten in shape to lay the west
half of the Longxicw loop as soon as
paving operations commence on Fif
teenth street. The east side of the
loop will also receive immediate at
tention and the preliminaries will be
disMsed of with all possible dis
patch." , . 7
.Manager Lardner states that" the
rails that have been taken from
Fourth avenue on this side of the
river, where they had ocen distribut
ed for the purpose of relaying the
track there, has been necessitated by
the non-arrival of the rails that
should have been shipped April 20 for
use on Davenport lines. The shipment
will be made tomorrow and the steel
taken will then be replaced. The re
laying of the Fourth avenue tracks
will proceed at such times as are
convenient this summer.
Open Cra Oat.
The open ears are being brought
out on the lines on this side of the
river and in a few days the winter
ears will all be retired. The summer
cars have received- new coats of paint
of the standard traction yellow after
being thoroughly overhauled, the
work being (lone in the shops on this
side of the river. The new cars, af
ter the weather is settled, will be
made into open ears by the removal
of the windows, and in that condition
they will be run throughout the summer.

Pt. Rev. AViJliarn E. McLaren, bishop
of the Episcopal ' diocese of Chicago
for 27, years, is seriously ill at Atlantic
City, and it is feared he will never re
turn to Chicago. The bishop was
stricken with an attack of vertigo a
month ago at Sycamore, 111., but later
returned to Chicago for a few days.
His advanced age and feebleness made
it diflicult for him to rally from his
illness and physicians advised him to
go to Atlantic City, hoping that the
sea air would benelit him.
Reports from the east, however,
have been discouraging, lie had been
expected tnm preside at the annual
Episcopalian convention, which will
be held May 26, 27 and 2, but it is
probable he will not fe able to do so.
His last official act in Chicago was to
