THE TRIAL TRIP.
The First Car Propelled by Eler
tricky in Rock Island.
Xo. 13 Of the Elmfitreet Rnuieh (1.1 ...
the Run Over Mont of the Linott
In the city WithKeanltH
W holly Kallfac:ory.
The first car baa been run by electricity
in Kot k IsUnd.
The trial trip was made last eveniDg by
the .Thrmson Houston company under
tbe auspices of the Davenport & Rock
Island Uail way cfirapany. Cr No, 13
of theE mstteetauil Ninth sireet tranches
eft the Moline avenue barns at 6:30 in
charge of B. Willard. chief electrician of
the ThomsonIIouston company, and A.
K. Fredericks, superintendent of the
same company; and there were also on
board D. R. Louderback, managing direc
tor, and Henry Schnitgtr, general super
intendent of tbe Davenport & Rock Isl
and company, John Huotooa, Jr., super
intendent of the Rock Island & Milan
road, together with Aid. Joseph Geiger,
and representatives of The Argus who
boarCed tbe car en route. The car was
first run down over the old Moline & Reck
Island line to Fourth avenue snd Fifth
street and thence back again up to Nine
teenth street fnm wber.ee the Elm street
branch was traversed to the terminus at
the top of tbe hill. The car ascended the
hill as easily and smoothly as if on the
level, sliding over the rail as a sailboat
rides before a stiff breeze and on
tranquil waters. It was a noticeable fact
that there was not that grinding deafen
ing roar which is so characteristic f the
left-handed, system that runs up
Brady street hill in Davenport.
In this respect as much ss in anything
else is the superiority of tbe Thomson-
Houston system over the Sprague demon
strated . Indeed the absence of noise was
shown everywhere on the line, and this
too, with the car and its motors new.
After miking the run up and down Elm
street the car was sent down over
Fifteenth street to Fourth ayenue and
west to the terminus of the blue line at
Fifth street. The car then returned over
the same route to Seconl and proceeded
tack to the barn. Coming up Fourth
avenue Electrician Willard put tbe con
trolling lever in Superintendent Schnit
gtr s hands and told him to "open her up."
The privilege was seized by the unda'unt
ing Henry as a school boy does his first
opportunity to take a swim in a mili
pond, and the car shot ahead and spun up
the ayenue at a rate of speed somewhat
less than that made by Jay Gould's train
which recently ran over the C
& N. W. from Council Bluff9 to
Chicago at an average rate of a
trifle over a mile a minute. Henry's
hat blew off and his hair stood up like
the stalks in a corn field. The breeze
which the speed of the car created played
merrily through the whiskers of Manag
ing Director Loaderback who braced him
self by clutching one of the ornamental
buttons on his superintendent's Prince
Albert coat, while with his foot he
clanged away at the gong under the pi it-
form for dear life, and a number of Mr.
Willard's assisstant electricians re-echoed
the sound with the gong on the rear plat
form. To the passengers the experience
was a novel one. The denizens who had
gathered along the side of the streets to
cheer and wave their handkerchiefs at the
first electric car. the houses and fences
all danced before the visions of those in
the fpseding vehicle. Veri'y Henry
was in bis element, and Solomau arrayed
in all bis glory did not eDtertain the pride
that blossomed in his breast for those few
On reaching Fifteenth the speed was
slackened somewhat and up through the
business part of town the car was not
run so rapidly, though as one of our
rural citizens exclaimed; "She got over
the ground right smart."
There appear to be a great many ad
vantages in the Thomson-Houston system
in addition to those already innumerated.
in regulating the speed. The car can be
started steadily and at one horse power,
and the speed is gradually increased.
The controlling lever is more compli
cated in its appearance than the simple
crank of the Sprague system and by
means of it and a rehostat the car is at
all times in the control of the motorneer,
and it is therefor an advantage that it is
less simple than the other, as it must re
quire a man who must baye a thorough
knowledge of the business to be trusted
with control of the car. This will in a
great measure insure greater safety to
passengers. The controlling lever too
instead of requiring a clumsy box on tbe
platform is supported by a rod lareer
than the brake and outside the dash
board, thus leaving the platform free
The cars are beautifully lighted the
chandeliers which support, the fine in
candescent light being further ornamented
by beautiful cut class globes or shades.
The cars on all the lines on the Rock
Island side of the river will be running
regularly in a few days.

Mortal ear can never know.

Seems to shrink from common view.

Is a death blow nnto such.
