PROVIDENCE KXPKKIMKNT.
The experts engaged by tho Third Avenuo Rail?
road Company to examine the Bentley A Knight
electrical raliway system of Providence submitted
their report yesterday to President Lyon. Ihe road
they oxan_j? was one 800 feet long, built with
jne sharp grade of one foot in twenty, and an abrupt
rurvo of forty flvo feet near the end of tho line,
mnc small open car ls operated hy an electric motor
Jf twenty-five horse power, ami 1,500 pounds weight
itt*ched to the bottom of tho cnr. From thl* motor
:he power ls applied to the axle* of the car by gear
nit und side bara similar to _8BB BBB] on locomo?

Meetrica! c.inductor for the tran-ml-sl'in of the cur
?ent to the rat- from two ten-horse power dynamo*
it tho central station, lavers to cut off or reverse

Pm: One of tho last acts of Mr. Cleveland when (iov
rnor was to sign a hill to put a park nt l.'orlear's Hook,
Ebb! Uiver, whh li wo.lld nen -.-Rate a sea-wall that woulci
'ompletely cm__ tuc Hunk and change the entire con
ormatlon of the shore at that point.
If a park ts wanted on the Eust Bide lt should not be
tlaeed at the only point between Fifth mid Montgomery
its. where deep draught vessels cnn be berthed. Below
Fackson-st. and as far down as Montgomery-st. there ls a
?eel'which run* close along the pier line. Above Grand-st.
herc ls another which runs nearly as close, being from
evenly to one bandied leal Oat, extending as far as
"Ifth-st. Let tho park bc built to accommodate this con
oniiatinii. not in the face of lt. To place lt between
trawl and Jackson sta, ns i andentend lt la noa pro.
Hised to tin. is not only to take tint only deep WOBar ftOBI

in-!. *- another objection i nt present the Honk eros?e
IB eddy which not only lessens the title, otherwise too
tnnig for vessels rounding the curve, but relieves the lce

If Mr. Cleveland had compared the bill wi!h the legis
