THE COMING I'OWEK.
Within the next ten years or more
we are destined to see the most stu
pendous revolutions in rapid transit.
iJevelopments are now going forward
and experiments being made with
electricity that will shortly astonish
the world, and as a result of these
discoveries and appliances it may be
safely prophesied that steam must
give way to the new motor that is
to-day concentrating tho capital aud
the intelligence of the country.
Electricians aeeomplislied a vast
deal when they succeeded in apply
ing the lightning to the rapid move
ment of city people by the use of the
trolley. It was a great victory for
science. But it doe not rest content.
The scheme which two years aco was
deemed chimerical, of constructing
an electrical railroad between Chica
go and St Louis that would carry
trains at the speed of 100 miles an
hour, is rapidly approaching realiza
tion, and before another five years
vow m?"v roll out of St. Louis at -I
o clock in tne afternoon and roll into
Chicago at 7, nearly 300 miles in
throe hours.
The New York "Herald" of Mon
day morning last prints a whole page
description of a trolley railroad be
tween New York and Philadelphia
that will simply annihilate distance
and place tho two cities within an
hour s ride of each other. The plans
and the company have been formed,
and the enterprise will, it is said, be
pushed rapidly to completion.
On top of all this a ''crank" has
proposed to build an electric railroad
between San Francisco and, New
York which, by use of, highly charged
storage batteries, will carry you
across tho continent in less than a
dat. This sort of thin used to be
laughed at, but not in these days of
stupendously marvelous inventions.
Even the crankiest crank, no matter
how many, wheels he has in his head,
is now permitted to escape until his
schemes. are.realized and wonders' of
