President Louderback, of the Daven
port & Rock lilind street railway
company, yesterday wrote Mayor Bills.of
Davenport, a letter unconditionally for
feiting the franchise held' by the com
pany for tracks west of Scott street on
Second street, in Davenport a por
tion of the old Allen line. Mr. Lou'ter
back explains that this trrck is within a
block of the Third street line, and that as
the council now requires the company to
operate cars both ways on both streets,
involving an additional expense of $9,
000 per year, the company prefers to
abandon the Second street right of way
and will cease operating the same, and
remove its tracks at once. The Daven
port council has been 6o oppressive in its
dealings with the ' company that it has
simply been forced to act in its own de
fense. The company's books show that
it is losing $20,000 a year in Davenport.
