Thegult of the Village of Uppsr Alton against the Chicago & Alton 1UII- road Company, will come up In the Jnlted States Circuit Court at Spring- leld in February. Col. A. F. Rodgera, Village President In Upper Alton, Is very much interested in ttie prosecution of the suit and stated to a Tur.R- CIRAPH reporter that the railroad will >e prosecuted to a finish. The suit 0.1 originally brought WAS for the maximum amount of penalties for nil vlo- ations of the law during the year pro- ceding tbe bringing of the suit Tiio total WAS 9000,000, but the bill ban since been modified and now Uppor Alton demando only the modest sum of 900,000 to remunerate It for its outraged laws, which obliged C. & A.. .rains to observe certain speed limits while passing through the village. Ool. Rodgers also [stated that tbe C. &A. had seml-offlolally offered to compromise with the village by build- ng a commercial side track, but still held to its claim that a passenger depot would not pay. Most of the trains mssingover cut-off are the fast Limit d trains and time Is quite a consideration with them. The patronage from Upper Alton would not be profitable o the railroad should the village sue- eed in making the place a regular topping place. Ool. Rodgers says that the people of Upper Alton would be satisfied with a depot, a sidetrack, and one train a day; but the 0. & A. officials have bdnrately held out and still refuse make a single concession oven when confronted with a $30,000 damage suit. Ool. Rodgers says that all he village ;aaka is a convenient ingress and egress by means of rail- •oads, as it Is very inconvenient to be obliged to come to Unioa Station at Alton to have trunks checked. Judge Irwln, of Edwardsville, is the attorney for tbe village of Upper Alton. Tbe O. & A. will be represented >y some of tho foremost legal talent of the country when the case comaa np for trial.
