there wbh mm h less tlinti the usual amount
of work of an) description to be done, hut
i'outii llinnn llrown win? given a elenr Idea
of what might have to be done any lilghL
N"ot only the councilman, but all the other
vlsltotn were prettj thoioinrhly convinced
that many nights cvci moment of the
time the cables nre not In aclunl use Is
ti eded to make necessary repnlrs, w that
the table tan bo got lenity In time for the
earl morning travel.
A sttiuiil In the cable Is the most frequent
and one of tho worst untitevnuccg to vv tilth
cnble men ate subject Cables an- miulo
up of stiatids, In each of which there are
tlghteen vv ties'. When all the wires In one
of these strands ate wont through by the
act Ion of the grip there conns n break
which means ttouole, ami on the- principle
tliim an ounce of prevention Is worth a
found of elite, cvet one of the cables on
the Metiopolltnn fjstctu Is Inspected evety
night, nnd when a place Is found which
looks ns though there Is danger of a break,
tho bad piece of the cable Is cut out nnd a
new piece Is spliced in. This splicing Is a
tedious and lengthy operation. lecpililng
skill nnd time to complete A specimen
strand In the cnble vvn shown the pirty
last night, nnd It Is wonderful to sen what
a fenrfullv tangled shape the cable can get
In from this cause
The broken strand unwind" nnd kinks
nnd vvrnps Itself around the cable In every
vailety of shape until the cable gets as
big us a man's leg In ome places, nnd the
wonder Is how It can run through the
sheaves at nil. When these stiands occur
In the daytime It meins a stoppage of the
t ntlre line until a new niece can be snllccd
ltl. In oidt-r to prevent this Hie cables uto
gom- over evety night and the necessary
work to put the cable In sound condition Is
done nt that time to avoid ns fnr as possi
ble all de-lays In the daytime. Sometimes
there nre a dns-cn of these splices to be
made In one night, and then It Is all that
the- expert workmen -an do to get throuch
their work by morning. At other times, as
was the- case Inst night, there are none to
be made, and the only work to be done Is
the Inspection of the cable, which ot Itself
Is a long and tedious Job
'Ile-ddes the time ueeess.irv for these
splices, there nre many other things In
tho way of breakages needing Immediate
lepalr. which, take time every night If
one of the Immense sheaves, or drums,
through nnd over which the cables run In
ami out of the powe-r house, gives wa, or
ireta worn down so thin that It Is in danger
of bteaking. It Is a lob roepilrlng hours of
hard labor to leplnce It. The whole pro
Ki amine of a night's work was. fully ex
plained to Councilman liiowu nt the 1'lf-te-enth
nnd Grind avenue- power house last
night, nnd vvlnn he had seen and been tnM
all nbout the- emergencies which might,
and do fre-oucntly, arise, he had a better
understanding than before of the time
needed by the cable cotnpanlis for their
Prom rifteenth street the n.irtv wont
out to nighth ami "Woodland, where work
of a different nature wits e-xeiupllfled.
The biggest Job the company has Is the
running In of a new cable, mid this Is a tre
mendous one Prom the- moment the cable
stops at night until time to stmt up In the
morning, every mnn who cm work to ad
vantage Is engaged on the Job nnd It tnkes
all of them everv minute of thn. time, nnd
then they sometimes nre not nblo to get
through in time Next Saturday night a

Am a result of the strikers' failure- to re
