THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1913.
TALK OF NEW LINE TOTHELOWER END AS A REQUIREMENT Young & McCcizbs j Come to the Big Quality Store Tomorrow!' Youns - McCcmbs EX-GOVERNOR SULZER HAILED AS HERO BY PEOPLE OF HIS DISTRICT IN NEW YORK' Important Stipulation Urged in; Connection With Internrban Franchise. TAP VALUABLE TERRITORY M ; 'l n : 1 U j 1- f pi lJ U j Rock Island to Bestir Itself to Get Advantages Common to Other Cities. "It should be a condition of any franchise accorded the Rock Island Fouthern for track rights up town, all other things being satisfactory," re marked a citizen, "that a line be built from Milan or Taylor Ridge into the noutb end of the county In the direc tion of Illinois City. There is a ter ritory there that should be reached by lnterurban cars for the benefit of the people living down that way and for the advantage of Rock Island. Tl.lnk of the trade of the lower end that now goes to Muscatine. The fact that it has proven sufficient to war rant the erection and maintenance of a high bridge built and operated by Muscatine capital and extending from the Illinois side Into the Iowa city, is significant. BITLT LIE TO MTSCATI3E. "When the last Tri-Clty Railway franchise was granted In Davenport it mas made a condition that an lnter urban line be built to Muscatine and that stipulation was complied with. The road has been built and Is now In successful operation. The coaches run into the business section of both cities and Davenport Is reaping the chief benefit "The lnterurban Is recognized by all wide awake cities as one of the great est of assets. There are few modern cities in which lnterurban cars do not traverse the main streets. Take it from Peoria south, and all the main cities are connected by the Illinois Traction system, Lincoln, Bloomington, Decatur, Springfield. Danville, Cham palgn and Jacksonville being all link rd up. There are also lnterurban cars in Galva, Galetburg and Monmouth. To the east the Illinois Traction bas another system running from LaSalle to Joliet Consider what the lnterur ban has meant to such cities as In dianapolis, Cleveland, Buffalo and a Kcore of other cities throughout In diana. Ohio. New York, and to come nearer, to Iowa, as well as Illinois. "In Qulncy the business men have been conducting a campaign for some time in hopes of getting In an lnter urban. Almost any concession will be Frutited with this end in view. SOT !M .fOI IV OTHKR CITNE.

More like a J the state legislature tor five year's conquering hero than a disgraced ex governor has William Sulzer been re ceived by his friends and neighbors in the Sixth assembly district, which he represented in the legislature many years ago. To these people the ex governor has always been "Honest Bill" Sulser, and thus do they regard him today. They showed how much they thought of him when he returned home a few days ago. Accompanied by bands and delegations the former governor paraded around the old dis trict, and everywhere was greeted with tremendous enthusiasm. Now Sulxer is making the fight of his life for the assembly, and the chances are he will be elected. He has joined the progressive party, and the progressives are very strong In his district "I have accepted the nomination for membership in the assembly for this district and I do so with pride," said SuUer in his speech of acceDt- almost a quarter of a century ago and for 18 long years I represented it In the halls of congress. "I shall be glad indeed to represent this district once more. For I want to go back to Albany to represent you and not Mr. Murphy. "Last year, my friends, the people! of this state elected me to be their' governor by the biggest vote that was 1 ever given a candidate. Ever since j the finstday of January I have been I representing the people honestly, fear- j lessly and faithfully. The bosses re-' moved me because I stood for and ! represented the people and would not! represent them. "I shall come down here among you and make a personal campaign. In the very near future I shall talk to you more fully and tell you things that will make you blush with shame for the citizenship that is in the clutch jot a cruel, arrogant, relentless and corrupt doss, wno win destroy you All Charge Purchases Made Tomorrow Put on November Account Young & McCombs' Big Quality Store cleans up all odd lots every month so that all stocks shall be new and fresh.
