or has been within two years
either directly or indirectly in
terested in any franchise or

and tha the penalty for so do

of the law under which Hock
Island is proceeding is as fol
low: "Neither the mayor nor any

The fire insurance policies held by
owners of the largest buildings in
the city are in danger of cancella
tion, according to a statement made
public today by representatives of
the local insurance board. What Is
more, it develops that an expert
electrician sent here in the Interests
of the insurance companies, follow
ing the recent fire at the New Har
per hotel, has reported that most of
the risks of the companies In the
city are extremely hazardous and
that It seems as though another con
flagration were being courted. Most
of the blame is placed on the shoul
ders of the People's Power company,
which is criticized for the method it
uses In conveying power throughout
the city. Negotiations are now pend
ing with the company looking to
wards a change in the plan of car
rying power but should the company
fail to acceed to the request of the
insurance companies the result will
be a stiff raise in rates or cancella
tion of the policies now in force.
OBJECT TO OROIM) Cl'RREST.
The fact that the power company
is using what is termed a grounded
eurrent to supply power for the num
erous motors throughout the city Is
the basis for the objections being
made by the insurance companies.
These motors, including most of the
ones which run the elevators in the
hotels and stores, are connected with
the street car trolley wires for their
energy. The return of the current
is made through wires which are
grounded: in other words which re
turn to the rails. This method gives t
a powerful direct current. With the!
street car tracks being torn up con-!
stantly for repairs there are many i
occasions when the returning current i
is poorly conducted and the result j , ,
is that the motors are heated and : Country Thoroughfares Elock
