of tho property aud proprietor of tho hotel,
left Washington. Ho Is said now to bo nt

Then yesterday n bill of salo was filed,
by which tho hotel was sold, furniture and
all, to i Charles C. Abbey for some
$10,000. This furniture was tho causo of
all tho trouble.
It was bought from Houghton & Co. of
this city and not yet paid for. Houghton
& Co. found out that It had been sold and
.they Immediately sued out a writ of ro-
picvin. ucpuiy I'liiuips ana nis men were
serving the writ this morning whllo tho
boarders wero looking clscwhcro for' their
lunch. Something of tho sort has been ap
prehended over slnco Mr. Sherman left

was showing tho appraisers through tho
hotel and standing by whllo tlroy appraised
tho furntturo this morning, when ho was
asked If ho wished to say anything about
tho matter for publication. Iio didn't.
Mr. Houghton of Houghton & Co.
said: "Wo furnished tho houso through

thousand dollars worth of furnlturo in tlio
house, nnd as soon as wo found out that
Mr. Sherman had sold it wo got n writ nnd
you sco It being served now. Wo didn't
losa any tlmo about It cither."
It Is understood that thcro is another
claim, smaller than Houghton & Co's., for
fuel furnished by J. Maury Dove.
Houghton A, Co.'s claim though Is
likely to tako prcccdcnco because they
wero tho first to get out a writ.
Tho houso Is very handsomely furnished,
thcro probably not being a hotel in tho city
whoso furnishings aro richer. Tbo carpets
aro all of tho best, and the parlor furniture
Is really beautiful.
Everybody expected that tho nowhotcj
would do well. It was In a most elegant
location, convenient to all tho public build

Unless something Is dono tho deputy

At tho suggestion of any moro modern
method of etrcct-car propulsion In Wash
ington than horso power but a few months
ago would Invariably lie met with n doubtful
shrug of tho shoulders If mado to au old
resident. Now, though, tho clcctrlo road
out on New York avenue Is a fixture, and
Mr. Hurt, ot tho W. A (I. llallroad, says
that wo aro going to havo a cablo road up
Seventh street, too.
Ho docs'nt say It dubiously but positively,
asbcflls tho president of n street car com
pany that has unanimously voted to spend
a million dollars, if necessary, to build a
cable road. It Is n big undertaking, tho
establishment of this cablo road. It Is esti
mated to cost $700,000, and Director Dun
lop told a Ciutio reporter that that is moro
tlmn the cutlro present plant ot tho com
pany cofrt. "And when wo get through
with lhls,"ho continued, "our plant will
probably have cost us over a million dol
lars." "It is a Bcrlous matter, this putting $700,
000 under tho ground," President Hurt
And it Is. Most of tho inonoy a cablo
Bystcin costs may bo said to bo put under
ground, becauso all tho cable's, grips, etc.,
aro out ot sight, and tho tracks ot - a street
car lino operated by a cablo look but llttlo
dlllcrcnt from tbo ordinary street car
tracks. The principal dlftcrcnco Is that
thcro Is a third rail between tho other two,
with a narrow slot- through Its centra and
through this slot comes tho steady, unin
terrupted, whirring buzz of tho cablo as
long as the street cars aro mnnlug.
This slot rail is no disfigurement to tho
street, and tho opening Is so narrow that n
man could hardly get his thumb throtprh
It. Tho Seventh-street lino is peculiarly
adapted to a cablo system. Thero Is not a
cuivo In tho whole lino from ono end to tho
other, and tho construction of cablo roads
around curves Is particularly expensive and
complicated. Tho cablo will go up Sev
enth 6trect under tho easternmost track aud
down under the west track. So every rtlr
coming down toward tho river will, by Its
own weight, pull enough on tho cablo to-
raise a car on tho other track going up.
This Is ono of tho great points mado lu favor
of tho cablo srstcm.
Tho advocates of tho system claim that It
will operate cais ou roads running up hills
moro cheaply, aud with tho ovpcndlturo of
less power than other methods ot propul
sion. Tho cars run along quietly, almost
silently, tho only nolso being tho low ruin
bio of tliu swift running cablo down lu its
narrow tunnel under tho trades, nud tho
whirr of tho wheels. A big gong will boon

TI1U bTYI.K Or CAlt TO I1F. USF.D.
Thcro aro several styles of cars lu use In
various cities, and tho Washington and
Gcorgctowu Company has not yet decided
which Kind they will use. Tho kind most lu
uso though, in roads that have boon trans
fopned from horso roads to cablo roads, as
tbo Sovcnth Street Lino is to he, is a rather
small car, In which tho "grlpuian," as thoy
call tho man who operates tho lovers that
moves tbo cars and brakes, stands lu tho
centre of tho ear or at ono end. To this
tho ordinary cars can easily bo attached by
very slight chnuges being made In their
construction, and by this method tho old
cars can bo utilized on tbo new road. In
this way regular trains of three or four or
even moro cars can bo run, ns each grip car
is capable of drawing almost any number of
The power to do nil this Is located in tho
power-bouse, which will bo placed cither at
mo ncud oi eovcniu street, ne.triua iiouuu
ary, or dow u by tho river w hero tho stables
aro now. In tho powcr-houso thcro will bo
a pair of powerful engines. They will bo
geared by an lutrlcato system of cog-wheels
with Immenso winding drums, nud tho cable
will bo wound around theso. Tho eablo
will bo a steel wiro rope, an Inch or so lu
diameter. It will bocndless.iuunluguorlh
under tlio eastern track on beventh street,
and south under tho other. At tho end of
Iho lino It will pass through a tunnel to tho
power-house, pass round cud round tho
drums ot tho machinery, so that thcro will
bo no possibility of Its slipping, aud back
under tho trucks again.
l.AMNCI THE IIO VI).
l'hcro is nothing very complicated about
a cable road, notwithstanding tho great
cost. Tho rails aro laid Just as forau
ordinary street ear line, only they test ou
stringers laid ou masslvo Iron framework
Instead of on tho ground. Tlio ccntro or
slot rull between tho other two Is not a rail
at all, but tho roof ot tlio tunnel In which
tho cablo runs. Tho tunnel will bo two or
thrco feet deep, perhaps deeper, and n
eouploof feet wldo In tho middle. In this
tumid, ten or twelve feet apart, aro wheels
with gioovcs around their edges, aud on
these tho steel cablo rests as It Is whirled
along by tho ongluos til tho power-house,
desciiiviion or Tin: omv.
Tho "grip" Is a llttlo machine lu Itself
aud tho most Important part of tho system.
Over 130 pateuts havobecu taken out In tho
Patent Ofilco for grips and oilier appli
ances tor cablo loads, Tho gtlp Is ar
ranged with two small rollers, and as It
nastcs alonir tho cablo is suspended on It
and runs easily over theso rollers until tho
grlpman wants to ttart his car, 'llicn ho
moves a lover aud tho grip, Instead ot al
lowing tho cablo to run through It without
any resistance, begins to squccza together,
grasping tho cablo tighter and tighter, till
finally tho car Is w hit led along at tho sumo
spcid mo cauio is running.
At first, beforo tho car gets under head
way, tho cable slips through tno grip so that
tho car will not start with too much of a
Jerk. Tho power that each motor car has is
really limited only by tho 'strength ot tho
gilp, tor tho engines that propel tho cable
whirl It along with aforco tlist. Is almost

havo lo ho torn up so much and so long to
lay tho cables.
i no picture snows now eevenui street
will havo to bo torn up to put all those big
Iron frames under tho level of tho street.
Through tho oval openings In tho ccntro of
tlio frames tho tunnel will run and tho grip
will depend through between tbo slot rails
In tlio centre. Wooden stringers will bo
laid along resting on tho arms nt each side,
and on theso tho rails will bo laid. Then
tho street will bo filled In nnd tho Belgian
block pavciiu ut rcluid, and tlio only part
that will show abovu ground will be tho
two rails and tho slot rail.

Tho rails used will bo tho Improved Eng
lish rail, llko that used on the Kckliigton
Electric Itoad, tho most satisfactory street
car rail made. Tho plcturo represents but
aslnglo track, and Just us much work will
havo tu bo dono on tho oilier track.
Though n cablo system for street-car pro
pulsion was patented lu tho Patent Ofilco
hero In 1S5U by E. G. Gardner, It Is only of
lato years that cable rouds havo been put In
successful operation. Now, nearly every
big city lu the country has Its cablo street
car lines. But thero has never been any
thing moio modern than tho horso In Wash
ington, until tho Ecklngton ltoad was built,
and but few Washlngtoniaus havo an Idea
as to what n cablo road looks llko.
Tho work of tearing up Sovcnth street to
lay tho cables Is to bo begun ns soon as tho
plans can bo formulated nnd contracts
mado and then tho work will bo pushed
along as rapidly as possible. Though tbo
street will bo torn up for somo months
whllo tho work Is going on, after It Is all
dono thcro will bo but llttlo dlffcrcncu In
tho looks of tho tracks. Tho slot through
which tho grip runs In only about as w Ido as
a man's thumb and tho steel cable, which

ItociiESTnn, N, Y,, April 1. Mr. Booth
aioso at 8:30 o'clock this morning. Dr.
Sumner called ou htm and found his condi
tion mucn improved. Tho actor Is now
able to speak qulto plainly. Ho took break
fast In his room. Dr. Sumner ndvlssd hint
to tako a rel for a week or ten days. Tho
(loctorlcftabontOo'clock, A I'mt-llrprest
rtjiorlir called on tho physician at his rest
deuce on North Clinton street. Iu reply to
tho question i "What is Mr. Booth's condi
tion this morning t" tho doctor said :
".Mr. Booth is feeling a great deal better
"Did jou consider his condition last night
"1 did not think it was Immediately dan
gerous. I found that ho had sustained a.
slight stroke of purnlysl, which prevented
tho power of speech. Tbo paralysis affected
his entire left side. Ho was uuablo to
speak, and of courpo I told him ho could
not go on with his part. It was thought
nt first that tho attack would pass away In
n few minutes, but I felt sura it was Impos
sible tor him to resumo his part. Ills con
dition wns Indeed pitiful. As ho lay then?
In his drcsslug-room, looking appcallngly
at Mr. Barrett and myself, unable to spcnlc
a word, my heart felt for him keenly. Wo
did nil wo could to aid tlio suffering trage
dian, and ns soon as possible had him re
moval to his hotel."
"Do you think Mr. Booth's strength ai
an actor Is Injured by this attack !"
"That I cannot say. I think, with a rest,
of n week or ten days, ho will bo nblo to
keep his engagement. Lost night's attack,
however, Is n premonition of what Is bound
to come. I think that within a few years;
Mr. Booth will suffer a final attack, wide
may rob America of Its greatest actor."
Mr. Booth's manager, Arthur U. Chase,
"The reports of Mr. Booth's illness liars
been much exaggerated. He Is now look
ing well, and speaks as plainly as ever."
"What do you think caused last night's
"I havo no doubt tho Immediate causo oC
tho attack was excessive cigar smoking.
Mr. Booth smokes about twenty strong Im
ported cigars a day and frequently usca
pipe. I told Mr. Booth this morning I
thought this wnstho causo. Ha smiled and
said: U couldn't glvo up my cigar.' L
think ho will smokeless cigars In tho fu
ture." Mr, Booth, accompanied by his valet,
left on the 10.30 o'clock train this morning;
for New York. In reply to an Inquiry from
tho Detroit Journal, ho Instructed Manager
Chase to say that ho will keep his engage
ment In that city week alter next. Mr.
Barrett has dctcruitnod to keep tho Booth
Barrett engagements. Lawrence Hauler
will probably tako Mr. Booth's Dart.
Tho company will piny In Buffalo to
night and the remainder ot tlio week, and
