THE WORLD OF ELECTRICITY.
Keeping Track of Street Cars.
Chicago KvcorU: The running of a
treet rar from the time it leaves the ter
minal fined to Its return Is generally aup
posed to be dependent entirely on the
motorman and the conductor. Few peo
ple know that the movement of the car
all the time is known to the superintend
at in the central otflre. He simply con
sult a chronoRraph and Immediately
learns whether the tarn ure running reg
ularly or irregularly; whether there is a
stoppage at any point; how long it lasts;
how many cars are blocked, and when the
trouble Is removed and the road begins
, operation again. This chronograph con
stitutes a sort of living map ot the road
by means of which the superintendent
can take a bird's-eye view of the whole
operation of the line. If there Is a bad
break he can send Instructions to 1111 In
with extra cars. If there Is irregularity
in the running time without good cause
he can check It. and. if necessary, trace
the exact car which Is responsible for the
deviation from schedule time. The man
ner in which all this Information Is ob
tained Is extremely simple. The chrono
graph consists prlmnrily of a sheet of pa
per moving at a uniform rate under a se
ries of pens or points operated by mag
nets. Each magnet point represents a
point on the road, and each time a car
passes this point oh the rond It makes
contact and the mugnet point on the
chronograph magcj a mark on the pa
per. On the frame of the Instrument is
mounted a back roller to hold a supply of
paper, the front roller on which to roll up
the record, the top plate holding the mag
net points, and the roller, which Rives the
time movement to the sheet. This top
roller Is a series of grooved wheels, one
for each magnet point. The Importance
of this part of the device is obvious, since
the movement of the sheet must be abso
lute and exact or there will be Inaccuracy
In the time record. This roller Is actuat
ed at the rate of one revolution an hour
by a powerful clock movement. This
gives the paper four Inches ot movement
in the hour, or one Inch for every fifteen
minutes, A line running on a one-minute
schedule will therefore show fifteen cars
or prick marks to the Inch, a llve-inlnute
ai.hudiilM Ihi-ua tn thn Innh nml art iin .1
break of two Inches would denote a stop
page of thirty minutes nt that point.
'When the superintendent sees a regular,
unbroken showing of points on tlio record
he knows that the cars are all doing their
To Run Ships by KlcctrlcIC-
Chlcago Hecord: Ten years ago a well
known professor of clctrlcal engineering
In a leading American college, who had
tested almost every form of the storui:
battery then made, was asked whether he
aw any future for tho accumulator. Ills
reply was: "The more I see of storage
batteries the more.. I am convinced that
they ure Impracticable, and that they can
never be made commercially valuable."
Today the storage battery Is working its
way into almost every branch of clectricui
work, and, If certain promises which re
cent Improvement In construction scorn
to give are fulfilled. It is on the eve of
Its crowning triumph recognition as a
practicable motive power for the com
mercial propulsion of street cars. Many
electrical engineers have Just as little
faltn In the possibility of driving ships
across the Atlantic by electricity as thn
college professor had as to the future of
the storage battery, but on the other hand
Inventions are now being perfected which
will efi'ect an extraordinary and almost tn
oredlble revolution In . ship propulsion.
Those who know what Is being done In
this field, which Is not yet mude public,
realign that to name ten years as the
period within which electric ships will
cross the Atlantic Is to allow a very liberal
margin. This will probably be affected by
machines giving an enormous economy of
pow.-i, but there Is already tulk of carry
ing out the Idea with existing appliances.
A. fl. Hlckley, a pioneer In American elec
tric launch construction, holds that the
reasoi vessels crossing the Atlantic make
such comparatively alow time is that they
cannot drive their propellers fast enough
with the amount of power behind them
without shaking the boat to pieces. He
ptopopes to put in an ocean ship a pow
erful engine, say a compound-condensing
engine of slow speed type, connected to n
multi-polar generator giving say 500 volts
potential. Directly on the shafts of the
propellers, he would put the arma
tures of the propellers which are
to drive the propellers. These can
easily be made to run from 00
to 9iW revolutions a minute, whereas the
engine Is probably making only sixty or
eighty. In this way not only would there
be a considerable acceleration of speed,
but the vibration of the ship would be
almost entirely prevented and the dipping
In and out of the water of the propellers
In rough weather would not affect the

Electricity In Congress.
. A plan has been proposed, though It
lnu; not be adopted, to facilitate voting
and eliminate the long and tedious oral
yea and nny call. This plan contemplates
running electric wires from the member's
desk to a large Indicator placed In front
of i.he speaker, where It may be seen read
ily, "o that when the yeas and nays are
ordered a vote may be taken In a few
jiicmenH by pressing the buttons. In
thl way members could show whether
they are paired or not, or whether they
' vows yes or nay, and all this could bo done
In a few seconds, whereas It now takes
thirty or forty-live minutes to finish a roll
cull. If the new electric system for call
ing tho pages works well It will be the
forerunner nf fnrthpp ntlHpn tlrm nt .!...

telephonic communication nvnllable was
had through the central exchange down In

houses: to be dlHDlnved In tho lnl,Mua

. tlves and senators will be able to see nt
a glance what Is going on in the other
co-ordinate body and thus save time arid
Itultons for Statesmen,
Another radical Innovation will be made
In .the method of culling pnges to the'
desks of congressmen. Hitherto, ever
.'since congress has been In existence, the
members have called up the pnge boys by
lightly clapping their hands together, a
method open to serious criticism and often
the cause of much inconvenience. When
considerable number of members hap
pened to clap their hands at the same
time the ordinary confusion of tho house
chamber was increased tenfold and often
an eloquent orator on the floor could not
make himself heard above the din. Many
a blushing new member, too, while mak

fusillade of handclapplng for applause.

covering that It was not. There are thirty-three
pages In the house, and these
young gentlemen. In an exciting session,
often become mingled In the crowd of
statesmen clamoring around the speaker's
desk, getting In their way and adding to
the general disorder. All these annoy
ances will now be obviated. Klectrlc wires
have been strung from each member's
desk to an Indicator and call board in the
cloak rooms, similar to those In hotel
olllces, and each desk will be supplied
with a push button for starting the cur
rent: so that all a member will have to
do when he wants a page will be to
push the button.
Telephones for Moving Trains.
Chicago Record: A telephonic attach
ment for railroad use has been introduced
which will greatly Increase the safety of
railroad travel. At present, the- device Is
designed for communication only between
the conductors and the nearest station,
but the Intention is to so modify it that
it can be used by passengers traveling on
expres trains. By this arrangement the
telephone can be called Into requisition by
the train dispatcher In addition to the
telegraph dispatching wires, while, on the
other hnnd, the dispatcher can be called
by any station or block along the line In a
second. An Ingenious part of the equip
ment is what Is culled a hanging set.
which is to be carried in every baggage
car and caboose. Should the train come
to a standstill through a block, wreck, or
any other interruption, the hanging set,
consisting of spliced wires on the polo line
Is dropped on two wires on the pole line
alongside the track. This gives as per
fect connection as If the telephone were In
a private otrtce, and It will work along ev
ery foot of a rallwuy line. In case of a
wreck the telephone Is Instantly avulluble,
the dispatcher Is called and orders are
sent direct to the spot In return.
Plcascd with an Klectrlc Launch.
When the Itttsslun squadron cumu over
to participate in the naval display in
New York harbor and Hampton Roads
on the occasion of the Columbian festivi
ties the grand duke Alcxundcr, who was
with the neet, took a great fancy to the
electric launch that had been provided
as part of the equipment of the United
States ship Xew York. Through the
courtesy of this government the grand
fluke was permitted 'to purchase) this
launch. Oruntl Duke Alexander took hl3
new acquisition back to Russia and it
proved to be a source of envy to all who
saw It, not excepting the emperor him
self, who has through the naval attache
of the Russian embassy nt Washington,
invited bids for an electric boat.

ceeded In constructing an apparatus, op
erated eleeflcally, which overcomes the
ordinary (llnVultii s of the nrtlllcial listen
ing of chickens. The apparatus Is easily
manipulated and needs a, small but con
slant supply of current. Automatic at
tachments regulate both temperature and
moisture, the adjustment working with
such delicacy that a temperatuie within
one-tenth of a degree of the normal heut

messages, have their shoes polished and
generally make themselves comfortuble.
