Railways a Tussle Seriots Accident In
Today's steady snow etirrc has en
tailed to the street car company the
hardest fight ia which its n en have en
listed in keeping tbe road open, since the
introduction of electricity as a motive
power. On this side of the river the
powerful electric sweeptr has been on

running as double headers, on reduced
time to be sure, but have managed f)
keep running on all branches of the sys

The icy condition of 'be tracks led to a
collision between two cars c f the Daven
port & Rock Island railway company on
the treacherous Brady street bill at Dav
enport at 8.30 this morning. Cars 2 and
5 were proceeding down tbe hill, both
filled with passengers ,No. 5 being in
advance. No. 2 waited at tbe top of the
bill until No. 5 had reached Sixth stret-t,
a safe distance ahead as was supposed,
when it started to follow. The wheels
bean at once to slip, a id Molorman
H fThr soon saw that he bad no control
over the car. The motor slid down the
hill at a startling rate, and Motorman
Peterson, of tbe car ahead, realizing the
danger of a collision, opete 1 bis motor up
and gave it full power. It shot ahead,
but tbe approaching car in the rear gain
ed too rapidly, and in front of the city hall
the rear end collision occurred, the collid
ing car crashing into the on 3 ahead of it
and but for the presence of mind of Mo
torman Peterson in starting ahead as
rapidly as possible, the can would have
been telescoped. As it v as no injury
resulted to the passengers beyond a shak
