COMPRESSED AIR MOTORS
New York Lines to Be Operated By Air
Motors Ten Cents a Mile Per Car
Other Cities Experimenting.
New York, Doo. 23. Within
tho next twelvo mouths compress
ed nir will bo put to use in opcr
nting euborban nnd stroot rail
ways in Now York and othor Ame
rican nnd English oitios. The
question of power for tho hand
ling of audi traffic has narrowed
down to tho altornntivo of com
pressed air or electricity, and the
decision in favor of ono or tho
other of thoao is likoly to bo in
iluonced by local couditiouB.
For somo years electricity has
held tho field without a dan
gerous rival, but thero aro abund
ant indications that from this
timo on it must sharo the honors
with tho new motivo power.
Tho comprodsed nir plant now
being established by tho Metro
politan Traction company in
Now York is uoarly completed,
and by tho ond of Fobruary ton
air-motor cars will bo in operation
on tho company's Twenty-eighth
and T.wonty-ninth stroets crnBs
town lino. Following this, a bolt
lino connecting the ferries and
raiwny stntions nnd covering the
hotol nnd shopping districts will
bo established. If tho presont
plnns of tho Metropolitan compa
ny are carried, out, all tho cross
town lines in New York city, with
ono or two exceptions, will bo
equipped with air motors in tho
course of tho coming two yoara.
GIIIOAaO AND ST. LOUlS ALSO
Although the Now York lino
will tho first in this country to bo
operated entirely by compressed
air, it will not long remain tho
only ono. Ono of tho Chicago
lines is to bo fitted with nir power
during tho coming summer, and
negotiations for tho oquipmont of
a part of St. Louis' system aro
nearly completed. Tho officers of
tho Amoricnu AirPowor company,
who control the rights of tho com
pressed nir system, havo boon in
consultation recently with street
railway men from n numbor of
wostorn cities, and it is oxpected
that some of them will adopt air
power soon on thoir lines.
Moreover, it is possible that tho
success of the Amorican systom,
as demonstrated by its nctunl
oporntion, may lend to its ndoptiou
on thoLondon underground roads.
u. Anon uaicer, au oxpert en
gineer, who was oont over to this
country to investigato tho subject,
recently returned to London aud
submitted his ropoit. Ho cotn
pnros compressod air with tho gas
power now in use on tho Black
pool lino in London, and his con
clusions aro decidedly favorablo to
tun tormor. Mr. Ijaker finds that
not only is nir power cheaper
than ens, but it is eunorior in
cleanliness and is noiseless in
operation, two important consider
ations on an underground lino.
ON ItAIMtOAD SUBURBAN LINES.
In addition to thoao develop
ments, it is said that tho NowYork
Central rnilroad is preparing to
uho air-motor engines in its yard
optM'atious nnd in hnuling trnins
through the tunnel nt tho Now
York Hud of tho road aud on thoir
A compressed air ongine has
!otn used for somo timo in tho
Viitds of tho Atchison, Topoka &
Santa Fa road at Topoka, for
tiwi'chiog, nnd is reported to hare
Wlion it is added that a com
pany is being formed in NowYork
to utilize tho air motor in running
automobile carriages, it will bo
seen that 1809 promises to bo a
great your for compressed air in n
number of ways.
Tho Amorican Air Powor com
pany, which controls both tho
Ilardio nnd tho Hondloy motors, is
capitalized at 37,000,000, nnd
among those said to bo ohipfly in
terested in it aro P. A. It. Wind
oner, William O. Whitney and the
othor laruo stockholders of tho
Metropolitan Tmotion company,
Colonel A. W. Soper of tho
Pintsch Light company, Henry
U, Cook, Alexander MoLeod,
formerly president of tho Kead
iug system, and numerous men of
importance in tho financial world.
WONDERFUL DEVELOPMENT OP THE
Tho use compressed nir as
motivo powor antedates electricity,
although it is only within the past
fow years that the system success.
lully employed by the Amorican
Air Powor company has been de
veloped. As far back as 1879 an
air-motor car was run on the
streets of Now York. In tho fol
lowing yoar an Englishman nam
ed Colonol Beaumont operatod it
comproised air ongino at Wool
wich, but it did not meet with
favor. In 1680 the city of Uorue,
Switzerland, ndopted nir for stroot
traction, using what wns known ns
tho Mokarski systom, and in tho
following year n lino wm installed
in Franco nnd nnothor nt Chester,
England In 1802 Samuel E. Jar
vis built nu nir- motor car which
wns run on n specially conetruptod
uno in Detroit, nnu in tlio snmo
yenr tho Consolidated company of
Toledo mado somo experiments
with a car equipped with tho Mo
Nono of theso experiment? wero
roported failures, but from nono
of thoso tried in this country did
any important results folio. Ono
difficulty encountered was in stor
ing onough nir to run tho cars any
cousiuerauio uistanco. iuo nir
was stored nt low pressure, and
consequently tho capacity of any
ordinary car was sufficient to car
ry it only about four miles, Tho
compressing apparatus was far
from perfect, and tho experiment
ers wero troubled bv tho heatiutr
of tho air during the compressing
process nnu by its freezing when
IIAItDIE THE OIIEATEST KXI'EIU
MKNTEIl. The dovolopment of compross-
ed air traction, as wo have it toJ
day, is chiefly duo to Robert Hnr
dio, a mechanical engineer nnd
inventor, who carried on h'is ex
porimonts in the uso of compress
ed nir nt high pressuro for sovoral
yoara nt ltome, N. Y., whoro tho
first successful air-motor enr con
structed from the plans now in
uso was put in operation.
Tho rosults of Mr. Hnrdie's x
periraonts wore embodied in tho
Hnrdio onginp, built for experi
mental uso on tho Manhattan olo
vated railroad, and in n street car
constructed for tho American Air
Powor company. The lattor was
put in operation on tho Four
Hundred and Twenty-fifth strept
lino in JNow lork on Aug. 14,181)0.
Two others of tho samo paltorn
woro added a little Inter, and the
three continued to run successful
ly for nearly n year. It was the
practical test to which theso cars
woro subjected by nctunl service
that induced tho Metropolitan
Traction company to adopt tho
nir-motor system for somo of its
lines. It wns found that tho cars
ran smoothly, with loss wear nud
tear to car nnd road equipment
than tho cablos, that they woro
not affeolod by woathor conditions
and that thoy wero loss dangerous
than cablo or olectrio cars, as the
ontiro 2000-pound nir pressuro
could bo applied to tho brakes, or
tho motor could be reversed if ne
cessary. Tho cost of operation
was a little groatcr than that of
tho othor cars on tho road.
HOW A COMPUES8ED AIR OAR LOOKS.
Tho Hnrdio cars employed in
this experimontnl work woro liko
ordinnry cablo cars in npppnrnuco,
except that tho spaco bono.ith the
body of tho car was protected by
aprons extending nlong tho sides.
Uelnncl these aprons, mounted on
tho car trucks, woro tho storage
chambers, conncotod with the run
ning gear by pistons similarto
thoso employed in steam locomo
tives. An improvement on this
driving apparatus was affected in
what is known ns the Hondloy
motor, described ns nn "insido
gear." This is tho one now in
ubo, nnd in enrs of this pattern
nono of the opornting machinery
is exposed to view.
