The uso of cablet in hauling street cars
is not at nil a new tiling, even in New
York. A cable lino has bren in opera
tion in One H limited and Twenty-illth
street for hoveral years, and, as all the
world knows, in .San Francisco. Chicago,
Kansas City. Philadelphia and other
cities tho story of cable earn has long
been an old one. Uut nowhere else has
tho cable been put to so severe a test as
it has hero The crowds on Broadway
are denser anil the tralllc is greater than
in any other city Crowded streets in
crease, tho danger to life and limb, and
undoubtedly the congested condition of
Broadway has contributed its full share
to the opposition to the introduction of
the cable here, which has nowhere else
been us strong or so long continued. It
is worthy of record that the Broadway
managers have been able to congratulate
themselves because of the fact that no
.other cable road In existence made ho
clean a record, mi far as hurts to humani
ty are concerned, during ltd first week's
operation as the Broadway line.
The opening of tho Broadway road as
n cable lino is but the beginning of the
reign of the wire ropo in Now Yoik.
Third avenue is about ready for tl9
cable. Work was begun in that thor
oughfaro at about the nunc time as on
Broadway. That was literally yearsago,
and the public has complained often and
with bitterness of the seeming dilatori
ness with which tho work has been car
ried on. But judging from tho satisfac
tion with which the Broadway Hue is
discussed since the cable has begun its
work tho disoontent of the past will bo
very shortly forgotten. The laying of
the couduitH and the building of the big
power stations were watched with gen
eral Interest during the progress of tho
work, but those who have been fortunato
enough to go through the stations since
they were put in operation have seen
something almost infinitely more inter
esting. I devoted half of yesterday to the sta
tions at Fiftieth street and Sixth avenue
and Houston street and Broadway. In
u certain sense they are much alike.
Botli contain powerful steam cnginca
that turn ponderous flywheels and pul
leys of fabulous Htze, and though the en
gines at Houston strct t are larger and
the wheels and pulleys heavier tlimi they
are at Fiftieth street the lay eye per
ceives little dillnroiice in these n lien
lars Hut there inn very apparent differ
ence of cjiilto another kind Tho (Mf'ieth
6treet station i housed in u high build
ing that in other days wn used ior sta
bles and cnrhoiiscs. All the upper Hours
have been taken out, and the place is a
vast hollow shell of brick walls, pierced
by many windows, and slate roof. Tho
first impression, therefore, of the visitor
is that he is in a cool, spacious, well
ventilated place. There is at once on
entering a sense of plenty of room and
of great power e.erted quietly, for the
big engine that is at work performs its
labor without noise. It. with its dupli
cate, stands on high brick piers some
eight or ton feet above the level of the
street. Tho attendants move leisurely
about, and no one seems to be in a
The power station at Houston street
is a veritable intcrno. The engines, of
which there are four Instead of two, are
in the bowels of the earth Of great
pulleys there are also twice as many as
nt Fiftieth street, and as there are
thousands loss square feet of floor sur
face space it) at a premium, and all the
machinery is crowded. Instead of the
pleasant coolness brought about by
many open windows through which the
breezes blow freely the temperature is
decidedly torrid. The attendants are of
course more numerous, and they clothe
theuiselvf s very lightly while at work.
Hot jets of steam and dropping tepid
water are everywhere encountered.
Much of the station is directly under
tho street, and tho ear is constantly as
sailed by the grind of wheels and tin
click of horses' hoofs on tho pavement
The din is terrillc. Tho electric lights
aro not yet In place, ami tho gas jets
flare and flutter in the constant hot
drafts, casting weird lights and Dantean
shadows everywhere. But many of
these characteristics of tho Houston
strott powerhouse am duo to the fact
that the construction of the bullMiig
overhead and of tho power station Itself
Is yet incomplete, and tho men who aro
tit work about the engines and the trans
mitting machinery are crowded togethoi
with masons and bricklayers and other
Utlll another power house is being
built for the Broadway road. It is lo
cated at Front street and will not bi
furnished with such powerful enginei
and driving machinery as the stations
that are now m operation. Of these,
that at Fiftieth street propels the cable
from Fifty-ninth street to Thirty-sixth
and that at Houston the two cables from
Thirty-sixth to Houston and from Hous
ton to the Battery, in all three the en
gines are of tho Corliss type. At Fif
tieth street they are of l.OOO-horsepower
each, with cylinders ISO inches In diam
eter and BO Inches stroke The fly
wheels aro 'Jl feet in diameter and weigh
60 tons each, us much as a good sized
locomotive. The driving pulleys aro l!0
feet in diameter and weigh I1.' tons on-h,
the difference in weight arising from tho
fact that in order to insure steadiness of
running the flywheels are purposely
made heavy while the pulleys are built
as light as possible without sacrificing
Tho power Is communicated to the
drums over which the cables run by
means of cotton ropo instead of belts,
which are being displaced in many in
stances where great power Is employed.
A pressure of 100 pounds of steam is
used at both the power houses, anil the
engines are run at U0 revolutions a min
ute. The four engines at Houston street
ono and a duplicate for each cable
have cylinders of two inches greater di
ameter than those at Fiftieth street, tho
flywheelsaro more massive, and thodriv
Ing pulleys and drums carry more ropes
mid are correspondingly wider ami heav
i r. There are six boilers of WO horse
power each at the Fiftieth street station,
but only three are used, the other three
being kept constantly re.uly in case of
accident. At the Houston street station
there are of course more boilers, and
they aro run as are the boilers at Fif
tieth streetthat is, only half of them
aro at any time supposed to be under
Although the engines are of 1,000 horse
power and upward each, they aro not
worked to much more than half their
capacity at present. Tho idea through
out is to have a superabundance of pow
er and duplicate machinery everywhere
including extra cables, all strung so
that the possibility of a shutdown is
reduced to a minimum. In case of an
accident to any of tho engines its mate
can lie put to woik without stopping the
cable, and the substitution of one cable
for another would cuuso a delay of not
more than 10 minutes.
The cable that pulls the cars on tho
Upper section of the road reaches tho
Fiftieth street station through a tunnel
lighted by incandescent electric lamps.
This tunnel is an interesting place. It
Is cool and filled with the clean odorof
the tar that is allowed to drip from a
tank on the cable at intervals to keep it
flexible. A man is employed to watch
the cable constantly in this underground
place, and though it is interesting to the
visitor to watch t lie iron rope on its end
less journey the workman says it has al
ready grown monotonous to him. At
Houston street the cable runs directly
into the station, and there is no long
sweet smelling tunnel. But if you aro
heatproof the Houston street station is
much the more entertaining place to
The cable cars do not run much if any
faster than horse cars, but they start
with less delay, and so the trip is Hindu
in rather less time. The Third avenue

ms ii.in was iiih ti:.n'I)i:k ixii.vr.
in her as a champion beauty. I didn't
lose live minutes' tune telling my feel
ings of adulation and admiration, but
the most she would say was that she
would ride down hill on my hand sled,
borrow my geography in preference to
any other and allow mo to sharpen her
slate pencil and licit the bovs who snow
balled her after school. Thus wo loved
and loved, oi at least I did. Therocaine
a time when 1 could look back ami see
where Melvina was cool, calculating and
level headed where her love stopped
dead short and business began, but I
was blind then.
A year passed by before a rival entered
the field We had our spa's. There wero
occasions when we mado up (aces at
each other across the schoolroom: when
she turned Irom mo and let another boy
wash her slate; when 1 was glad that she
left ol) at the foot of the spelling class;
when 1 added up 1) and 8 on the black
board and made br, and sho giggled and
was rejoiced On the whole, however,
wo wero happy. I licked l-l different
boys lor her direct benefit Unit year,
und her ht cent in geo;rtrphy was
tho highest of any girl in the school.
Wo were engaged that is, I had asked
Melviini about half a million times if she
would have me, and sho had alw.iys re
plied that sho guessed sho would if the
hogs didn't get in and root up the gar
den or some other awful calamity occur.
My rival was a callow youth named
Sam Greene Soimthinu warned mo of
peril tho tninuto I set eyes on him, but
an hour later, when I heard that ho could
write poetry. 1 realized that it would bo
a tight to the death. Sam went straight
to work to unhorse uie. At tho forenoon
recess ho presented Melvina .lackson
with a lead pencil and a slate sponge, and
she smiled sweetly assho accepted them.
I wrote her a note meant to annihilate
her lint she read it with her mouth full
oi apple and didn't scare wortli a cent
Long enough before noon I had doter
mined to lick Sam Greene. A licked bo
goes right out ot the rival business aim
doesn't bother any more. It Melvina
had melted a little and assured me ol
her fealty. I might havo changed m
muni hut she didn't melt. She even
went so far as to whisper to a girl who
would whisper it to mo that Sam Greene

it he trvi d to bo a sterling antagonist

t ,;i-t hold with both hands ho gave in.
i or a weei; iuciviun pi.iceu mo on a
pedestal and almost agreed to elope.
Then Sain .rcono sent her u piece of
poetry entitled "The Maiden's Heart,'
and 1 lost my grip again. Tlnioulvtliiiiu
to bo done was to lick him again, but he
had hud his Muur shingled in the mean
time, ami the conflict did not terminate
to my satisfaction, Some of the boys
saiil I "hollered." and others said I
licked, and ic was an omui question as to ,
who won. He went right homo and i

Hum Greene tho uwfullcst licking u hy
mn of u boy ever received. Ono of his
legs slipped into a pesthole during our
t.trtiggle, and then 1 had him. This was
only a week before tho Fourth of duly,
unil there was also to bo u circus in town
that day. In that light, as I was re
joiced to hear, Sam lost (I centa in cash
out of one of hn pockets, uud I fondly
hoped ho would be lluancially paraljr.ed
on tho glorious Fourth. Alas, for my
hopes! Ills mother permitted him to sell
two old fhitiroim and a dozen eggs, and
ho was made (liianclally stronger than
before. Neither of tin dared ask the fair
Melvina to accompany us to the celebra
tion. Wo hadn't tho ago imr the back
ing. Our att 'iittons would coino In after
sho reached town in her lather's lumber
wagon I had licked Sam Oreenoagain
Imt ho was not discouraged.
When tho glorious day arrived, I had
u cash capital of t'7 centa In firing the
sunrise salute thouuvil burnt, and one of
the pieces Hti licit our hencoop. That
would have inadu mo a hero in Mel
viiia's eyes, but thntoriiery Sam Orcciio
managed to burn u Imlo ill his vest ex
actly over his heart with u firecracker,
and that dished me. We had u fight
over it, but it resulted in h draw Sam
offered Melvina the first 'lasses candy,
hut I cnnio in u good second with real
pink lemonade. I think lie discovered
tho circus procession before I did, but I
was the first to call Attention to a ser
pent CO feet long painted on tho canvas
of a sideshow at the circus. It was
which and t'other until I pit u plan to
ruin Sam. I encouraged liiui to take
Melvina in to behold the wild man of
Borneo, whilo I remained an outsider.
Ho fell into tho trap and cauiu out dead
broke, while I still had 113 cents capi
tal. Ah my dear ono uml 1 sat under ono of
tho circiiB wagons that afternoon eating
gingerbread and living lor each other
iiloue, while Sam was trying to regain
his lost prestige by turning handsprings
a few yards away, 1 remember that 1 aji
pealed to Melvina to ily with mo. Sho
Eiiid she was too fat to lly, nnd 1 had to
struggle with my disappointment. She
promised on her solemn honor, how -or,
to die the same night I did in case wo
both had bilious fever, and 1 was quite
satisfied. When the shades of night be
gan to fall, Sam Greene was a doomed
boy. Poetry couldn't save him. Homado
a raise of il cents somehow and bought

peeling and half tho fruit, hutsho turned
away in disdain.
