The Coming Trial f Ihr rw Hyotem
of F.lerlrle Railway I'rnpalnlon at
The Peoria Trarurript of yesterday
contained the following further facta
with reference to the Pennock electric
railway system, which is eoon to be given
a trial in that city, aa heretofore described
in the Argus, and which the public
everywhere is watching with deep inter
est: For several months the new system of
electrical propulsion has been the topic
of conversation among people in this city
and Chicago. Ever since the Central
Railway company put in the trolley sys
tem, Capt. Hall, of the Fort Clark line,
has been looking about for a more im
proved system. He desired to put in the
oveibead system about two years ago.but
the city conncil did not favor improve
ments unless they were in it, and he was
forced to abandon the plan, although he
had already purchased poles and placed
considerable of bis track in condition to
receive heavy cars.
More recently the Pennock system has
been attracting a great deal of attention,
and a trial is to be made in tbis city. It
promises to revolutionize power for pro
pelting street cars. In the Pennock sys
tem each car carries its own battery for
generating electricity, and every car is,
consequently, an independent motor, and
the breakage of a wire or break-down at
the power house does not affect the en
tire line. If the system works as it is ex
pected to, Capt. nail will adopt it at
Geo. B. Pennock, the president of the
Pennock Electric Railway system, act
companied by Mr. Ed- L. Smith, the gen
eral manager of the same carporation. ar
rived in the city last night and are stop
ping at the National. These gentlemen,
together with Capt. Hall, of the Fort
Clark road, were seen at the hotel last
evening, and all were in acenrd with the
statement that the Pennock electric syg
- tern would finally supercede all other
Mr. Pennock will today inspect the en
tire line of the Fort Clark road and de
termine the number of motor cars neces
sary to tnoroughly equip the outfit.
The Peoria Jnurnal says on the sub.
Dynamo manufacturers have for a
long lime pooh booed the idea that there
could be any success with a galvanic
battery. But Mr. Pennock brings to
their notice some things that a primary
battery has already accomplished as a
motor power. After experimenting for
five years Prof. Jacobi in 1889 propelled
i boat thirty feet long, carrying a load of
about 5,000 pounds, down the river Neva
at the rate of three miles per hour. His
motor was of the crudest kind, and the
electric power came from sixty cells of
the Daniel type, giving him at the ter
minals about 50 volts and one ampere.
In tbe same year Robt. Davidson, - of
London, experimented with an electric
railway car, 10 feet long, and carried a
weight of 13,000 pounds, at a rate of 4
miles an hour. He also used
the cells. Again in 1861, the pri
mary battery made a most notable
showing, propelling an electric motor car
of great weight at tbe rate of 20 miles an
hour between Washington, D. C, and
Bladcnburg, Maryland. This trial was
made by Prof. Page, of the Smithsonian
institute, he securing his electric power
for his 10 b. p. motor from the Orove bat
tery, and when we stop to consider the
crude magnetic motor, the unscientific

gearing that Page used, together with the
extraordinary expenses in those days for
the fuel burned in the Grove battery,
why certainly this showing of speed has
not been equaled by the serial system of
today. Mr. l'ennock claims to have
no doubts whatever of the suc
cess of his scheme and says tbat
there will be at least a hundred
persons here from abroad to witness
the trial trip. Other-motor men are be
ginning to recognize the value of his in

weeks and wish to draw tbe attention of
the people to the ordinance relating to

without paying at least $3 for tbe season.
Sprinkling will he allowed between the

What is a cold in the head? Medical
authorities say it is due to uneven clot li

is, that a cold in the head ii an inflamma

which, when unchecked, is certain to pro
duce a catarrhal condition for catarrh is
essentially a "cold" which nature is no
