that the "electric mule" has taken the
place of the long-eared quadruped

along the Erie and Miami canals.
. The New York legislature at its

subject of electrical towage of canal

on the Erie canal at Schenectady for

in the fact that the wheels grip the
under side of steel rails instead of
7unning along their surface. The
trollev "mule" takes the current from
a trolley wire, throigh a tolley pole.,
and pulls the canal boat by means of
a long towline. The demonstration
consisted of hauling three canal
boats carrying a total burden of 616
tons. Another test was with a total
of 780 tons and a third test with 1.396
tons. Other tests consisted of over
taking and passing boats drawn by
animals with the "electric mule."
As the tests were highly successful,
there is little doubt that the electric
towing device is destined to work a
revolution of canal transportation in
this country and in Europe.
