TWO DECK CARS
ON THE T. C. LINES
New Type of Observation Cars
Will Be Introduced This
Trolley Trips for Pleasure to Be
Made Still More At
New Track Extensions Will Make
a Great Twin City Scenic
Minneapolis is to be the first place
in the United States to have double
decked observation cars operated over
its electric street railway lines.
In the great*shops of the Twin City
Rapid Transit company, at Thirty-first
street and Nicollet avenue, work is
already under way on the first car of
the new type, and it will be ready for
business by the time observation trips
Since the Rapid Transit company be
gan building its own cars, it has
evolved a type of car which is char
acteristic. The new car is based upon
this present large standard car, the
lower compartment being practically
the same size and style. To provide
for the second-story passengers, the
roof is made flat, and seats, holding
four each, are placed crosswise. There
is no center aisle, the seats being
entered from a passage at each side,
which is one step lower than the cen
tral platform. Strong standards ris
ing from the body of the car support
a light but strong roof over the upper
deck and between these standards are
placed wire screens and spring roller
curtains to afford safety and protec
tion against the weather. The car
thus resembles an ordinary standard
car of the all-the-year type, with an
open car superimposed upon it.
How to Reach Deck.
Passengers desiring to enter the
lower compartment will use the cus
tomary door and gates at the r^ar
of the car. Tourists for the upper sec
tion will climb a neat iron stairway,
entering from the side of the car at
the forward end and ascending with
out any spiral across the front of the
The Idea of such a car was picked
up by Vice President C. G. Goodrich
while on a tour of England. The
Minneapolis car, however, shows some
striking improvements over the Eng
lish cars, which are short and
"teetery," and are lees than seven
leet wide, while the Minneapolis cars
will have a width of eight feet
nine inches. Despite the defects ap-/
parent to any American, however, the
English cars were so popular that Mr.
Goodrich was impressed with the
value of this mode of travel in
the twin ^cities,. An additional faci.
tor which psdmp'ted the Introdudfc
tion of the new cars here is the
fact that this season's extensions
will afford a rare opportunity for the
touriBt to see nearly all the points of
Interest in both cities from an elec
tric oar without covering the same
route twice. Starting from the West
hotel, for instance, the tourist could
make the run to Lake Harriet, thru
the fine residence section of the city
to Minnehaha by way of the new
Thirty-first street line, thence by the
new line to Fort Snelling, across the
river and down into St. Paul. The re
turn trip could be made by way of the
new state capitol, Como park and the
state university, thus giving the trav
eler an excellent Impression of the
best there is in both cities in a busi
ness, industrial, residential and scenic
Cars Will Be Popular.
Inasmuch as the two cities are
famous for their natural beauty, it
goes without saying that the observa
tion car will prove instantly popular
among the thousands of transconti
nental tourists who stop over here ev
ery summer. The bulk of the steady
patronage, however, is due to come
from the thousands of people in both
cities who occupy flat buildings the
year round and to whom street car
riding has become a regular summer
evening pastime. For years this pleas
ure riding has been growing in favor,
and the new cars will enable the
travelers of this class to enjoy their
trips under ideal conditions.
New Car's Capacity.
The seating capacity of the stand
ard car is fifty-two of the double
deckers it will be the same. To carry
the additional burden of larger con
struction the cars will be of especially
strong construction and will be pro
vided with motors capable of develop
ing 250 horse power, whereas the
standard cars have 150 horse power.
Comfort and speed are both provided,
and as the new cars will be sixteen
feet from rail to roof, the upper deck
passengers will enjoy the exhilarating
privilege of viewing the landscape and
taking deep breaths of pure air from
easy seats far above the street.
"If this car Is a success, as we be
lieve it will be," said Mr. Goodrich
this morning, "we expeot to adopt it
for our White Bear line, for our Min
netonka line, if we should build it, and
also for our lnterurban line."

within the past few weeks such sweep
ing victories as practically to end the
fight between them and Governor
Cummins over the selection of dele

The losses of Cummins and his
friends have been in the cities and
country alike. Beginning with the
reverse in Polk county, the Cummins
men have lost steadily until the ap
parent climax was reached in the
Dallas county convention yesterday,
when Judge Nichols, groomed as a
candidate for congress in the outside
counties of the seventh district against
Captain Hull, arose In the convention
and said he had no intention of fight

he Is not and has not been in favor of

Mott walked unassisted to the gal

believed his conviction had been
brought about thru dishonest meth

The crime for which Mott was hanged
was the shooting of his wife on Sunday,
Jan. 4, 1903. For months previous to the
murder he had been addicted to the use
of liquor and drugs, causing a depressed

lingered for nine hours before death.

Mott went to the supreme court in an
effort to secure a new trial and made two
