'May iilect n Compromise.
Tbo residents of East Lincoln who are so
vigorously opposing the Hock Island grade
crossing at O street have suggested the fol
lowing compromise : They propose Unit the
Hock lalunu tracks bo depressed six feet below
low the urobOut grade , and that the present
O street grade bo raised six feet tor a short
distance on each side of the crossing. The
street would then bo Hllod in Irom lot
line to lot line and the slope up to tbo cut
would bo so gradual that struct Irafllc would
in no wlso bo inconvenienced. In audition
the Hock Islnnd is to erect a short viaduct
not more than eight foot blah over its tracks
on O btreet. A competent onplnoer tins
estimated the cost of this viaduct , together
witti all necessary expenses of changing tlio
grado. lining , curbing and repaying , at
$17,000. The Hock Island olllcluls are suid to
look upon the proposal with some degree of
Vi-ry l.llio a Cyclone.

poilled right aide up in a vacant lot. The

your claim on record before

It takes lime to .put an ap
