COMPANY GETS RIGHT OF WAY
Council Praetleallr Decide oav -Petition
' of Bavllnsjtosi , t
The ordinance Introduced at the meeting
ot the city council last Monday, giving the
Chicago. Burlington Qulncy railroad the
right to maintain., two . main tracks, on
Elsventh avenue from Mala etseetf to the
Union PaclDo transfer depot, will not be
opposed. The aldermen a a committee of
the whole went over the ground yesterday
morning In company with the local officer
of th railroad and found ne reason why
the request should not be granted.' '
In consideration for the passage of toe
ordinance the railroad, fcasegr to eon
struct waterway on each side of Stain
street at 1U tracks of sufficient . capacity
to carry off the water which heretofore In
times ot heavy rains ha flooded th street
to such an extent as, to make It impas
sable for street car, v The surface water
from the adjoining side gtreet congests
at the point on Main street where the Bur
lington's tracks cross, and -the storm sew
ers have proved Inadequate to carry it oft.
This Is to be remedied by the railroad com
pany, which is planning to ratio its pas
senger depot and make ' other - Improve
ments at this point. .
The original ordinance granting the Bur
lington a right-of-way on Eleventh avenue
provides only tor the maintenance ot one
main track, but for many year past tne
railroad has had two In operation over the
greater part ot the avenue. It now de
sires to extend its second track clear to
the transfer depot, and for this reason the
ordinance bas been Introduced.
At different times it ha been suggested
that the Burlington be required to main
tain crossing 'gates on Main street, the
same as the Northwestern has on Broad
way, but the aldermen will not at this
tlms Insist on this. The committee of
the whole yesterdsy on investigating this
matter decided that there was no actual
demand for the gate at this point, but It
is more than likely that before the ordi
nance is passed the city council will re
quire the Burlington to maintain a Bag
man at the crossing at the Eleventh ave
nue and Sixth street crossing. This is con
sidered to be the most dangerous crossing
in the city, as the large building of the
Monarch Manufacturing company com
pletely shut off all view ot the tracks and
trains approaching from the west. Several
accidents have been narrowly averted at
this crossing, and a few 'months ago a mall
wagon was struck by a mall train and ths

Would Like ltew Encampment.
The member of the Flfty-econd regi
ment, Iowa National guard, have made
some effort in the direction of having an
other encampment of the regiment this
year. The regiment was literally' drowned
out at Fonda early In the month and com
pelled to abandon the camp after two or
three days ot wading In the ' mud . and
water.. The veteran members ot the regi
ment felt great disappointment over the
unfortunate turn of affairs. It Is the first
time In the history of the guard that an
encampment had to be completely aban
doned on account of bad weather, and the
boy would like an opportunity to try
again. -With the camp broken up the en
tire regiment will go In the records for
the year without any markings as to drill
and camp work, while the other three
regiments will secure their markings. Be
sides, there wss some complaint on the
part of citizens of Fonda aa to the con
duct, or misconduct, of member of the
Fifty-second regiment and the boys would
like a chance to demonstrate that they
have a good regiment. As there sre no
funds with which to provide for an en
campment, It is not likely to be held.
