Builder of Muscatine High Bridge Passes Away. James B. Locke died Saturday at his home in Des Moines. He was trained under his father, who built the New York & Erie road, and when he came to this part of the country, in 1853, he naturally drifted into the service of the Rock Island road as a bridge builder. It was Mr. Locke who built the stone curbing, coping, and tiers of steps of the present state capitol. He supervised all of the stone setting that formed the massive foundation of this great pile and did it well. He had the honor of assisting in the building of the first railroad bridge in the state of Iowa. This was the old Rock Island, and Mr. Locke put in the bridge work east of this city. He erected the first railroad bridge in the state. Two huge bridges spanning the Mississippi river were constructed under the supervision dk Mr. Locke, They are ) both stanflmg monuments to his enterprise. One is at Lyons, the other at Muscatine.
