Estimated Amount of Freigh
Handled Through Rock
MILLION AND A HALF TONS

Now used in over
It is estimated that 50,000 carloads
of straight carload commodities, or at
an averaee of 30 tons to the carload.
J.50U.OUO tons of merchandise of this
Claris, was shipped out on the various
railways through Rock Island offices
in 1'J. The amount of the lieal
freight handled is cstlmited at about
lS.nnu car loads from Kock Island, an:l
5.0'i from Moline. The importance of
Hock Island as a shipping center is
shown by thesa figures,, and the
amount of the incoming business is
nearly the same as th-j volume of
freight shipped out during the year.
The estimate is based on the number
of cars handled each way on all roads
entering Rock Island. To estimate the
amount of freight revenue involved in
this amount of shipping Is impossible,
but the figure is in the huadred thous
ands. "The volume of business handled on
the railways from Rock Island during
the calendar year ending -Dec. 31,
shows an increase over 1904 of be
tween 5 and 10 per cent, as indicated
from the figures of the total tonnage
of the year.
The increase during the calendar
year is practically the same as that
shown during the fiscal year ending
June CO, 1905, and this in an indica
tion that the volume of freight ship
ping, both out of this city, and incom
ing, is steadily increasing. It i.
shown in nearly every commodity,
lumber being almost the only excep
tion. The transportation of this com
modity has been steadily on the de
crease for some time, and it is predict
ed that the coming year will show an
even greater fall than has been seen

Kail Wnlhrr Help.
The last two months of 190a were
unusually good for the freight depart;
ments, owing to the exceptional fall
weather. The business of November
and December did much to raise the
totals of the year and result in a total
business in the year greater than that
of the preceding year.
It is interesting to note that the
more general use of concrete for con
struction work is bringing about a
better condition In the stone industry
in this locality, and the general busi
ness during the year 1905, as indicat
ed by the shipments made, show some
thing of an increase over 1904. It is
expected that during this year an even
greater increase will bo experienced.
Agricultural implements, vehicles, man
ufactured goods of all descriptions.
and general merchandise during the
last year experienced a healthy in
crease, and railway men anticipate that
this year will be even more prosperous
