New York, July 2S. As the sapient
Parson Jasper, of Richmond, re
marked, "tho world do move,"
On tho 24th day of May, 1SS4, when
the Brooklyn bridge was opened to traf
fic, it was one of tho engineering won
ders of the world. In 12 years it has be
come n back number.
How much of a back number, it is
somewhat surprising: to learn by a
comparison of the present bridge with
the now one whose construction, about
a mile and a half further up the river,
is now being busily pushed. Tor that
matter, the Firth of Forth bridge
opened near r.diuburgh a number of
years ago, was bigger and higher nnd
longer and heavier than the Brooklyn
bridge, but it will, in turn, be sur
passed by the structure which is now
about to rise from the water's edge,
uniting the sundered sections of Great
er New York. For the new East river
bridge, although 100 feet shorter in
its central span than that over the
Forth, is wider, heavier and bigger in
every other dimensions, and will ac
commodate a traffic immensely in ex
cess of any that Scotland is ever likely
Stated in bold figures, there are some
sharp contrasts between the new Brook
lyn bridge and the old.
The new bridge probably w ill cost a
trifle less for nctual construction, and,
as w ill bo shown, immensely less for op
eration hereafter than tho old, yet it
will be practically (he times as pow er
ful. The. towers will be from 70 to
72 feet higher than those of the old
bridge. This additional height allows
the cables to take a more decided curie
in their huge loop across tho river aud
thus subjects them to a strain which,
relatively to the weight imposed, is
considerably less than in the old .stiuc
ture. Yet, tall ns thej are, the towers
of the new- bridge will be very much
lighter than those of its predecessor, be
cause, instead of being constiucted of

solid masonry, they will be built up ot
lattice work of steel upon a masomy
Tho towers alone- of the old bridge
weigh ten times as much ns the entire
steel superstructure. In the new span
the weight of the towers nnd super
structure will be approimately tin;
same. Impiovements upon the present
bridge have been hampered, immensely
by the fact that its apprpoaehes nre all
built of solid masonry, defying change,
alteration and improvement as ef
fectively ns they defy the gnawing
tooth of time. In the new all the ap
proaches as well as the suspended struc
ture itself will be of steel, and sufficient
land wilt be reserved on loth sides to
allow room for future changes and to
insuic against interruption of traffic
by fires nnd accidents on neighboring
property. What is more, the approaches
will be separate trusses capable of sup
porting their own weight. The cable,
after leaving the central span, falls to
tho earth level and is clamped to its
mighty nnchornge within a distance of
COO feet, acting merely as a backstay
and supporting no weight whatever.
Because of the deeper loop which the
cable will assume it will be so much
larger than in the old bridge, as might
be expected. Each cable will hav ifa di
ameter of 20 inches, as against, 15
inches upon the Bocbllng masterpiece.
It has been erroneously stated that
these enormous bteel ropes would bo

their complet 'd form This is, of
course, wildl.v impossible. The engi
neer in chief, Mr. TclTcrts Iluek, who is
known far and wide to the profession as
the engineer of the Niagara suspension
bridge, lias, however, devised a plan
which will greatly hasten and cheapen
the production of the cables. A dum
my is to be prepared at the wire shops
over which each strand of the cable
will be built. A single strand can well
be handled and manipulated by the
workmen upon the bridge itself will
b, indeed, not much larger than tele
phone or telegraph cables which are
commonly handled in the streets. The
task will still remain, however, of bind
ing together nearly 300 of these strands
into the cable itself.
In the old bridge each cable was
actually built in place, wire by wire,
slowly and painfully.
The masonry of the towers and ap
proaches of the present Bast river bridge
is as good as the finest in the world. En
gineers say that considering its quality
it was also very cheap. The foundations
for it were laid 7S feetbelow water level
upon the New York side and 40 feet.be
?ow upon the Brooklyn side. The foun
dations of the new bridge will begin 78
feet below water lev el upon the Brook
lyn side and 60 feet below water level
upon the New York side. Each tower,
instead of being a solid mass all the way
up, w II consist of two nearly square
towers pfaccd some litll" distance apart
j-cU connected by stiffening girders and
trusses between. It is probable that the
foundation for each paitof each tower
w ill be si solid mass of masonry CO feet
by 80 ftet, the narrow end being toward
1 lie liver, and will taper upwind until,
at the point 20 feet above (lie water
level vv here the steel woik begins, it will
mrasmo some SO feet by 70 feet.
This single member of a single tower j learned a. valuable lesson from the dis

fiom the coiumibsioners charged with
Iho woik, tiiatthenew bridge will make
the most radical departure, not only
iiotn the old one, but from every pre
viously existing structure In the world.
When completed It will tnko its place.
nnd until a mlfrhticr Hiiccctnor arises,
hold it us tho engineering marvel of the
curly years of the. Twentieth century.
The old bridge has two footways, two
carriage ways and two railioad tracks.
The new bridge will havo six rullrnad
trncks, twocarriiige ways, two footways
and two bicycle paths. Two of the rail
road tracks nre forelcvutedcnre, which,
without doubt, will secure connections
on, both sides of the river so thot pas
sengers can go 20 or 23 miles, say from
Jamaica to Yonkcrs, without once de
scending to the level of the street, pos
sibly even without changing cais. The
four other tracks are for surface cars
driven either by electricity or by com
pressed air; two of them approaching
nnd leaving from tho north nnd two
from Jho fcouth to servo the different
narts of the city. An architectur.-vi-wc-

i i imiwocww
pert vv id early be called into consultation
to keep in mind tho aesthetic quality
of the great Htrueture. It will have, in
stead of pinched terminals debouching
upon narrow sheets, u broad plaza at
either end, perhaps 000 by !)00 feet in
sie, equal to several city blocks, along
which can be rrnged car stands for 20,
30 or 10 different ear lines if necessary,
eacli fal'lng into its place, receiving
its passengers nnd joining in the line
for tho procession across tho bridge.
It is calculated that some SO per cent, of
the truffie will be passenger traffic.
Yet if a person vv ishes to walk or wheel
over the river umTcnjoy thcunequalcd
panorama from the summit of the arch
he can do so withoiitdanger to his neck,
for on eithei aide of the wide plau a
footpath and a bicjele path will sweep
in an easy curve toward the big towers,
gindually arising lit a somewhat higher
gi ad lent than that o' the enrringe track,
until ns they reach the bridge proper
they ar.' directly above the carrhigc.
vvajs. By this arrangement the width
of the now bridge is kept at t IS feet.
Even at that, it is fully 50 per cent, vv ider
than the old one.
After this statement of the dimensions
of the phuas at the terminals of the
biidgc, it will hardly be necessary to
add that there is no congestion of traf
fic, to be apprehended in any of the I
streets approaching it. It is ns if the
throngs which will pass over are to be
buttered out thin over a wide area, so
that each stream can seek its channel
without interfering with any other.
Still, it is likely that, the main lines of
approach on either side will be widened
by the city nuthoiities, although with
this the bridge commissioners and engi
neer have nothing to do.
In another regard the bulldcr of the
new link between the two cities have
adequate compensation for the cost of
the structure, partly because of the ex
pensive and antiquated ways in which
its various activities are conducted,
which are, again, rendered necessary by
the limitations of the termini. It has
a complete engineering staff, a sepa
rate police force, separate lighting con
tracts, itfi own cars, cables, engines and
railway staffs. It costs many times as
much to switch the cars back and forth
from one track to another within the
stations themselves as it. docs to haul
them all the,w ay across the bridge.
The new bridge will have neither po
lice force nor railway staff nor any em
ployes whatever excepting an engineer,
a superintendent and some inspectors.
The cities, which, long before its com
pletion, will be but the one city of
C renter Xew York, will light nnd police
the bridge and clenn Its streets pre
cisely as they do the rest of their ter
ritory. Xo rolling stock will bz re
quired, because the bridge will be made
a. thoroughfare of which the ears of anv
surface or elevated railway will be per
mitted to make use at will, upon suoh

lyn a man may board his morning car,
surfnee or elevated, and, instesd of
chauging at the bridge entrance and
joining in tho scramble for a (.eat or
standing room only for a lido of but
six or eight minutes, will roll on across
tho bridge in the same car withoutstay
or detention, and the same at night
upon his return, What turn per pas
senger tho car lines will bo required
to pay for their use of the bridge !s
a question which, of course, the future
will bo left to determine, but however
small tho rate, it is easy to see that the
Immense throngs which use tho bridge
will provide a sufficient revenue to pay
