PLANNING FOR NEW'
BUILDING AT ISLAND
Street ItaUway Company Will Re
place Burned House-in-tbe-Woods
at River Resort.
Plans are being drawn by Temple
& Burrows, Davenport architects, for
a building on Campbell s Island to re
place the House in the Woods, which
was destroyed last summer by fire.
The new building will be larger than
the old one and it will be located on
the main channel side of the island.
General Manager J. O. Bun toon vis
ited Campbell's island a short time
ago and selected a site for the build
ing 3uu reel below the shaft. A sur
veyor's crew has laid out a new route
for the track, which will be changed-
considerably.. Instead of making a
sharp turn after crossing the brick
the track will continue straight ahead
and will turn in the woods, termin
ating in front of the building, 100 to
150 feet to the east
The matter of cost of the new build
ing Is still being discussed by officials
of the company. They looked over
several sketches and it is possible
that they will settle on' a fireproof
structure. A building of this type
will cost considerable, but .it will be
more practical In the long run.

effort to conduct the big amateur and

and Olympic cup competitions, and
unless an npset occurs at the meeting
the Colorado metropolis will be favored

slight kick registered against conduct

a central point but this opposition is
not likely to figure when it comes to
The open championship has been
asked for by the Idlewlld Country club
of Flossmoor. No fight is promised
for this attraction, as the other clubs
of the association are apparently satis

it will, and in this case sentiment
seems to favor the Chicago club, which

Chicago Bars Unnecessary Noise
Chicago has placed the automo
bile horn in the same class with loc
omotive and street car signals by
creating a .law . forbidding its use
save as a warning of danger. More
over, the city has taken another
step forward by defining,- for the
first time in the history, of munici
pal legislation, just what an ade
quate automobile signal is, by pro
viding that no device shall be used
as a signal of warning save that
which gives an abrupt sound. This
means- that no matter how much
noise might be made with a warning
signal, to make other than an abrupt
sound will put It in the power of
the court to fine any person guilty
of unnecessarily sounding his Big
The ordinance specifically states
that it shall be unlawful to make
any unnecessary noise.
The warning signal proposition is
thus treated in a section of an ordi
nance which it is believed will check
the abuse of the muffler cutout, and
various other automobile dangers.
But the chief feature of interest is
the warning signal section, because
its adoption sets the pace for the
rest of the United States and shows
the way to the successful solution
of a problem that has bothered most
of the cities and towns of the coun
try for a long time.' The section
reads as follows:

protect the motorist and pedestrian
alike, and at the same time put an

ordinance is the result of his idea.
In discussing its intent and provi
sions, Mayor Harrison said:
'It is my Idea that in considering
this automobile question the whole
rights of the public must be respected.
'This being the case. It was nec
