"That's It, No. 103. Send It on as soon
asjoucau," snld Captain A. A. Thomas
In his ofllco up skyward In tlio Atlantic
Ilulhling this morning.
Ho was talking to n plcosant-fnccd man
with a brown mustache, who Jolted down
tho number In a note-book ns Captain
Thomas pokc. Captain Thomas, who Is
tho president of tho 1) right wood Hallway
Company, stood by a lablo In his ofllco as
ho spoko nnd tapped with n lead pencil a
short section of heavy steel rati that was
one of n dozen or so samples of various
kinds of street-car rails ranged along tho
desk. They had been left thero by tho
agent of tho manufacturers for tho llrlght
wood directors to select tho rails for their
road from, and the ono Captain Thomas
indicated was n bout tho heaviest of tho lot.
'Iho man with tho noto-book was tho
agent of tho manufacturers of tho rail, nnd
Captain Thomas had Just given him an
order for all but a few feet of tw o miles of
rails for tho Hrlghtwood Hallway.
"Wc expect to break ground," Captain
Thomns Said, "between tho 1st ond the 10th
of next month. Early In Juno wo expect
to have cars lunnlng over tho new road
clear out to Hrlghtwood.
"Tho motor? Well, I cannot tell vou
.yet what tho-motor for the new road will
be. Hut It won't bo cable power, becauso
that Is too expensive; It won't be overhead
electricity, becauso thero is a law against
putting up wires; It won't bo underground
electricity, becauso I bcllcvo that to be
about tho poorest method of 6trcct-car pro
pulsion thero Is at present.
"Tho road is being built for n motor of
some sort, though, tho roadbed being very
solid and tho rails vory heavy. Why, when
that road Is built with those rails I Just or
dered, It will be strong enough to have n
forty-flvo ton freight engine ruu over It.
My men is to mako the road a rapid transit
line. I think after wo get things running
tightly wo should bo able to mako tho dis
tance from tho Iloundary to 11 right wdod In
fifteen or eighteen minutes,
"Hut, of course, to do this wo must havo
a modem motor, something better than

In getting permission to run ono simply on

see now gooa n moior a uummy engine is
they will let us uso them altogether.
"Theso engines aro noiseless, smokeless
and most of them burn coke, though ono
that my attention has been called to burns
oil. Tho fuel Is crudo petroleum, which Is
thrown iuto tho furnace in a Jet, encounter

"Tho agents claim that theso dummy en
dues can bo stopped even moto nulckly
than a horso ear can. They aro fitted with
air-brakes, and really seem to offer an ex
cellent motor for street cars."
Pcndlug the selection of a motor nnd the
building of a complement of cars for tho
new rallway,'tho present strcct-cnr 6crvIco
that extends to tho Hock Creek Church
ltond will bo continued over tho new
track to Hrlghtwood. Tho Hrlghtwood
Company has practically acquired tho
present track from tho lloundnry to ltock
Crcclc Church ltond and tho present track
on that portion of tho road will be relald
and form a part of tho Hrlghtwood Hall
way Company's ejstcm.
until tho new company selects a motor
nnd gets Its own rolling stock ready, tho
present oar service of tho Metropolitan
Company on tho Seventh-street road, bo
jond tho Iloundary, will bo continued over
tho new lino to Hrlghtwood.
Tho new track Is to bo a model street-car
track. Tho rails aro of tho sort known as
sldo-bcnrlng. Tho top of tho rnll Is the
shnpo of thoso used on the F-strcct line,
nnd in fact on nearly all tho street-car
lines In the city. Tho dlffcrcucu Is that tho

elng lu tho form of a strip of iron that is
laid on top of a stringer running parallel
to (ho rail, It will bo laid on a scries of
cross-tics lit o feet apart, and the rail is In
tho form of a beam or girder set upon Its
edge. This stjlo of rail Is tho modorit

Tho track h to bo a single ono at first,

Tho police authorities manifest n decided
disposition lo suppress nny hlcathat Ocorgo
Juencmau wus murdered.
"Ho was drunk, was struck by the train
and rolled over on tho sldo of tho track,"
wns Lieutenant Kcllj's tersely expressed
Tho almost, If not entirely, unanimous
opInlotMif tho police authorities Is that ho
was caught try a train. Notwithstanding
this belief, tho cuts, which Wcro inflicted
evidently by somo sharp Instrument, aro
still plainly visible
Juencmau heard some one says "Leavo
the fellow there, and they will believe that
tho train killed him."
And tho pollco bellovo It.
'Ihcso assassins aro smart men.
In a casket of dark wood lu the house of
Mrs. Juencmau, tho mother of Iho mur
dered man. lay tho remains. Iho pretty,
tear stained faco of a joung ghl, ono of
tho dead man's relatives, bent over the
casket as sho told how' (Icorgo had como
lioi.io that night battered and bruised bo
yond recognition. Ills family strenuously
deny the rumor which has been circulated
around Capitol Hill that they suspect a
son-ln-lawf Mrs.Jcuncman named Hollo
ban. "Wo do not suspect him," they said.
"Although there had been somo misunder
standing between us wo aro sure that ho
was not capable of such a thing."
It Is said that tho son-in-law cherished
somo bitter feeling toward Jucncmau's
people, claiming thot they had been instru
mental In causing his separation from Ills
wife. This theory is tho cxcluslvo property
of tho gossips so far. Tho pollco have, to
their own entire satisfaction, fixed tho
tragedy on tho 1). it O. Hallroad Company,
Whero Is tho engineer who ran over him?
Is a question which docs not appear to havo
occurred to them.
No Investigations In this direction havo
as yet been set on foot, although even this
aspect of tho case Is ono of oxtrcuio Im
portance. Another theory of tho homicide Is that It
was done by somo member of a crowd of
men who had made n loafing pluco of the
lumber yard which Jcuncman's toother had
built near Sixth and C streets northeast.
His family say that ho had Incurred the
displeasure of somo of thoso men by order
ing them away, becauso they becamo noisy
and dlordcrly. Threats to "get even"
had been made.
A pollco ofllcer, however, Is authority
for tlio statement that Juencmau was on
good terms with this crowd and lu no way
iiKciy to do auacKcu oy inem.
Jtiencmun leaves a wlfo and four chil
dren, the eldest being 13 years old.
"It Is so sudden. Annie, nnd the children
,nro so joung," wcro nmong tho Inst words

The nctlon of the Coroner In the mnttcr
Is awaited with Interest. At thu station
homo this morning Dr. Patterson expressed
tho belief that It was a railway accident,
although w hen ho went to visit the house
this morning ho happened to strlko the
Wrong sldo. of the street, and returned with
out having sceu the remain.
If tho 11. A 0. Hallroad establishes an
alibi and pruves that no 11. & O, engine
lu tlalryard uses tlio language, or Inlllcti
razor-like cuts, or leaves marks like tlioso
of n boot-heel, tho pollco will still hnro
much to lutercst them. It Is a question
whether tho railroad company Is not able
lo establish bojond n doubt whether or not
a man was struck at tho time and place In
