ABOUT THE RAILROADS.
Commercial Office Not Changed.
The many rumors to the effect that the
Davenport commercial office of the
Rock Island is to be abandoned, and
the work carried on through the divi
sion freight office, are unfounded. The
abandonment of the office was consid
ered, but it was decided to continue
under the present management.
Stock Yards at Silvis. The fact that
the Rock Island is planning to remove
the stock yards of the road from Gen
eseo to Silvis has caused considerable
agitation among the property owners
at Silvis. The yards are to be located
about one-half mile west of Carbon
Cliff, just east of the big overhead
crossing, and the atmosphere at Silvis
will hardly be affected by the odors
from the yards. The removal will re
sult in censiderable saving of expense
for the road, as the train crews will not
be put to the necessity of deadheading
back to the Silvis terminal, as at pres
ent. Surveyors are now at work on
the ground which will be used for the
yards, and the removal of the feeding
yards will take place early in the

Artistic Advertising. The most artis

the International live stock exposition,
to be held in Chicago. Dec. 10 to 23,
the passenger associations have au
thorizes! a reduced rate to Chicago.
The fare from Rock Island to Chicago
im Dec. 10. 17. and IS, will be $G.!5 on
all roads. Coining, as it does, just pre
vious to the holidays, this reduced rate
will undoubtedly be taken advantage
of by a great many who desire to do
holiday shopping in Chicago, as we ll as
those who wish to attend the exposi

to the releasing of the Pullman dining
cars by the Rock Island, there will be

DOUBLE BILL IS PROMISED
Good Time for Those Who Attend Uni

Aside from the fact that the concert
to be given at the Illinois theater on
Monday evening, Dec. IS, is to be made
the occasion of a society event in the
trinities, the visit of the University of
Illinois Glee and Mandolin club is in
teresting to theater-goers because it
assures them a first-class musical en
tertainment. The college boys know how to sing
and there is an inimitable charm in
the songs and glees that are so distinct
ively a part of university life. If one
wishes to drive dull care- away he
should be at the Illinois on the night of
the ISth. The program will embrace
the best efforts of the large and well

CLOSE CALL FOR A
Brakes Failed to Work at Illinois Riv
er Bridge But Draw Had Just
The fact that the draw across the
Illinois river at Beardstown had been
closed but a few minutes before it
reached the place saved No. 9, the
Beardstown passenger on the Burling
ton, which reached here yesterday,
from destruction. As the train, heav
ily loaded, approached Beardstown,
the engineer found that the machinery
was out of order and he was unable to
apply the-brakes to stop as usual be
fore crossing the river. In spite of all
efforts the train ran on till its momen
tum was expended and was then back
cd to Beardstown. where repairs were
made causing the loss of an hour. The
draw of the-bridge had been opened a
few minutes before the train arrived
for the passage of a boat, and was
closed just in time to avert a catastrophe.
