Thc derision of the- Southside Street
Hillway Companv lo adopt the Casebolt
niel lion of locomotion, which has been so
stir.se.*fn| jn .s;it) Francisco elnritu; the past
four year*, >promiSM to work a comjilete re
volution in Ihe system of street Havel in
this ejfy, and it is a little remarkable tti?t it
Ins tint been adopted before- I his. The
dclaie* ol Ute meilind have aln-adv
oecn explained in ihe- Tribune at
length, and its workings have licet)
retn-iH-ted sn thoroughly by Hie man
agement of the road tiut tbey have no ht si
lat ion in lillipilli'.: ir, although it will in?
volve an oullav of at lea*t 160,000 a mile for
a single track, milking lin- e.Hire o*t for
their tricks in thc south Division about
afeMOtOOO. At the risk of repetition wc
may lu ii fir say Ihat thc new method i? sim?
ply an e-nelle*s *|eel chain or cable -tink in
111etich, running round drum* af thc ter?
mini of thc road anet driven by steam-power,
operant)': upon a liuire wheel winch revoke*
thc callie, located mid.viv on Hie coarse.
For instance, if thc termini of ihe roail were
Madison and Twenty-second streets thc
[lower would be located at Twelfth street.
Tmt firs ate provided w n u grip or
[?lamp, whict). by thc action of a lever,
-eizes Hie cable-, which thereby proped-, thc
far, while it in btopped hv -imply ml ixin-r
the grip, and the momentum of thc car can
be stopped, as now. by the eptratkM of a
brake. One ctr ts used for Um irrip, and
?o ot two ears caa be attached as lo tba
2sne ol the dummies now roniiiiicr to Hyde
Park anil Luke View. Aa to the soceess ol
lie new plan there hardlv -erins to bc a
doubt, provided tba difficulties in turning
Karners and eroSBlaR oilier railroud tracks
?an bc overcome and thc dinger of water
freezing in lin-trench cati be obviated. Mr.
Holmes, however, ha* plan* for removing
ldc first two nf the-c (ILfficultie*. tod Hie
ia-t can ba ovorcomc Lv pi entiling eatcb
basins which will draw edi thc water and
hereby prevent it* trot 7.\ol'.
Tile advantage* art- ->a> numerous tba! they
prill occur lo any one upon a moment's rc

mmen-e -aving in horseflesh nnd the wear

tootie disease*, inclemency of wi allier,
velght of loads, or anv injury of any ?ort,
erovidi'd ordinary care is exercised. It will
)l*o, of cour*e, obviate the necessity of nu.
'loving so many men upon the road and in
be Stables. Thc advantage**, however, ate not
ill upon Hie side of toe railroad company.
I'lie public will e quail) share in them. Under
bis arrangement tbe car* will not be crowd
id, for with such a powctfiil motor the conn
Miny Can pul on anv number of chis, and
bus tbe crowding' of platforms and aisles
viii lac avoided, and every one will have a
eat. Their motion is .verv cany, and thev
an be stopped and started with petted
use, and liiey arc ubsoluiely safe. There
viii also bc B decided gain in time. At
?reseat, including st,,^, our ears make
bout four miles nu hour, while under the
icw -system they will make six, and can
ihenevcr the emergent?*/ reejuire-j it make

Fortunately the plan in not an e-xpcrl

e'siilt* for (our years io t-an Francisco,

lillias Ibat do not ex I at here, for in ihat
itv the car* have to he .'muled-up very steep
raile*. sometimes to altaitniles 180 or 400
-et above Hie starling point, while herc un
oads arc pcrfeclly level. Thorc it ha* been
iii-ti a success tba! no one would think of
tarting a horse-i-ailroad, mid there does not
??ni to bc any reason why it should not
rove to oe even a still greater -uecess "jere,
t is uneiticsti,mably a oaethod which will
Hie the system of -metropolitan traos*,
ortation for a long lime to come, and the r
ouihside .Company deserve* credit for its *
aterprise in adopting it.
