Myatraa Milt Be Entirely Equipped
Willi Kleetrlrlty Thlt rail.
The A Rous recently spoke of the visit
of a representative of the Sprague Elec
trie Railway & Motor company, of New
York and Chicago to Rock Island for the
purpose of inspecting the tri-city lines of
the Holmes syndicate, and learning to
wbat extent they were suitable to elecs
tricity as a motive power. Plans of tbe
lines showing all switches, curves, double
and single tracks and connections are now
in the possession of the Sprague company,
and tbe action of the Holmes people in
tbe matter of adopting electricity is con
tingent largely upon the report of the ex
pert wbo recently came here, and wbat
terms it can make for power, either with
the Rock River and Mississippi Power
eompany or Davis & Co. The Daven
port Times holds that:
Tbe equipping of these lines will in
volve an expenditure of about $350,000,
and will add materially to the prosperity
of the tri-cities. The Holmes syndicate
nave about twenty-seven miles in opera
lion, about evenly divided on the two
sides of the river, and it is tbe idea to
establish two power stations, one in D-tv
enport and one in Rock Island, each sup
plied with steam plants and dynamos
sufficient to operate the entire system so
tbat in case of accident tbe whole line
may be operated by the uninjured power
plant, though ordinarily the power would
be equally divided, thus making a ma
terial saving in wire, which is now at the
highest point it has reached for years.
i he equipping by electricity would neces
siiaie me purcnase or annul nriy new
cars and electric -ar equipments which
alone would cost about $175,000.
To equip twenty-seven miles will re
quire 2,500 poles, which would cost $5.-
000 delivered here. Each station equip
ment would have to be between 70O and
1,000 horse power, or from six to ten
times as large as tbe Central railway
In case arrangements are made, the
system will undoubtedly be the Sprague,
tnesame as the uentral railway, as their
single trolley wire with feed wires makes
it by far the most desirable for long lines,
as In the case of a break on the trolley
wire delay is caused only at the one point
where the wire is broken, whereas with
other systems the breaking of tbe trolley
wire disables the entire system.
It is now believed that within ninety
days, and surely before the storms of
winter set in, the Holmes tri-city lines
will be run by some propelling force
other than animal power.
