' .■■ ■■ -,:..: - v.; ; r(Tlic Saturday: Evening Post); ■ "Who is Francis X Spraguo'.' most pcoplo Will ask. Those who know will tell, you that Mr. Sprague is a captain of American industry, who, at 45. has done more, perhaps, for the comfort of the masses and the wealth 1 of the country than- any other single man. He it was who made the trolley car. possible, and the trolley car has flayed a- greater part in -the economical development of America than has any other inctor. In the great .metropolitan center and the small' country village alike ithas changed life. It has added approximately a thou sand million dollars to me value of. real estate in /the United States, and almost ; as ; much to tlio value of street railway properties. - It: has fairly, quadrupled the number of men ; employed in the street railway business, and has furnished em ployment; directly: andlndirectly,: to hun dreds of thousands who are engaged in the industries on which electric cars depend: miners.; machinists, electricians, :eto. ; . In Now Yorki City alone the number of em ployees on the street; rail ways '.-has grown 1 from 2.000,: the maximum number in the days of horse car's; .'lp 10,000. , Tho receipts have grown from two .million: to twenty million,. Approximately 100,000 trolley cars are in operation to-day in the United States as against; 22.ooo horse cars before the change was made to electric. traction. If the saving of time that has come from the introduction of trolley- cars could be computed, the figures would run into sums so fabulous as to stagger tho mind. And. all this Francis J. Sprngue wrought. He was a ! graduate of Annapolis, enter ing that institution in 1574, at the age of 17, from Mil ford. Conn., his birthplace. From the first he had; had a passion for electri cal engineering, and he devoted much of his spare time at tho Naval Academy, to mastering. this "science- In ISB2 he resigned from the navy in order to devote himself entirely to electrical experiments. He sought out Edison and remained with him for a year; then he branched out on his own account. It was about this time that the question of electrical: traction- was being every where discussed.; European- as well' as American engineers, fully alive to the jjossibilitics that lay in this field, devoted their best energies to its solution,; but lhcir results were more than unsatisfac tory. Occasional electric cars were to be seen here and there in the world, but no one had been able to devise a 'scheme that would' make, them commercially prac ticable. They were toys nnd objects; of curiosity, nothing more: Young Sprague made up: his mind that here v.-as a: thing for him to do. Hebuilt a rough motor, and -with, this as a basis formed the Sprague Electric-Railway and Motor Com pany, on paper. CAME TO RIoimOND., The next .thing, was to get "a railway . company that would pive him a chance to try his motor. Jic fastened himself; to street car men whenever . he could find them. Imt they all declined to take him seriously." 33u't a little thing like that didn't discourage. the young engineer,, even remotely. He kept right on pcrfectinghis maclihie, and keeping a sharp lookout for a confiding railway manager. One day he found him.' in the person of A. E. Burt, the manager of tlic principal car system in Richmond, Vn. After nn : amount of talking ihat would have- worn out most men. Mr. Sprague-: secured; st v contract to | equip his line wi— forty eloctric' cars, an- ; electric station plant, poles, wires, and j everything else. i Then he hujitod for capitalists. This was i nn experience even moro trying than the I hunt for, a contract. From a strictly com-' I mercial st.indpoint, Mr. Spraguo's proposi tion seemed about the most insane thing: conceivable. • All he had was some blue prints of his machines and a, lot of rough experimental parts.- .-But he finally sue-; reedc-d in forming a company, of which •E. 11. Johnson was the president. This was in May, ISS7. . . CLIMBS WITHOUT HORSES. In January, of the following year the trial trip .was?- inade,. and a new epoch in American, history was begun. For. a llme it looked as if the epoch would be a dißappointment. Tho, trial car was not Tv.il out until nine o'clock' at nighty Mr. Sjnuguo was the inolorman. : With him were S. . Dana Grrenc, an: electrical, engineer, and Mr. Burt. The car movod out of the .sheds, at a ewu. pace, until-, it •struck the niiddlft of a sh.irjj: curve, " and there it stuck. The inventor pushed iho motor handle this way and T thnt,- th>j others lending aid and sympathy V and ponio counsel. ; They juihped up and down on the platform, they sot ofC and pushed, but all in vain. :•" . :: "I suess we are stuck for keeps." final ly suggested Mr.; Burti satJly: Mr. Greene^ echoed the sentiment, but Mr.. Spraguo was still undaunted. ■ . ' "I'll pet out of this cun'e." ,. : lie', said -.grit-, ting his teei.li, ; "if I wreck the whole machine."- * -- - . ; ■' AVilh thathc jammed; tho handle until the motor liangvv.. To the; amazement of Burt and Greene, the car irav«:i forward jerk, and in a ■ secbm? it had cleared' the curve ar.ci was speeding up the- lino be yond. ; • " • ' . ■' _, .; ■ . .. •■:..'■ " . The news of the proposed trial trjphml soinehov/ . leaked out , in; the: city, and de^ .spite the JatcncH of the' hour' a'; great crowd Is.ad gathered. When '"the halt carne their > numbers ; wero steadily- aujpneii ted.'

'A half mile 'beyond the. : curve there '.was a steep hill. At the foot.of :this Mr.SpfagUQ threw the handle" over, and broiight.itho car, to a standstill: ' He gazed dubiously at. the ascent and' then turning: to tha"gen eral 'manager, . he -said: ;■■■■■..'■- ■. r, r •■.-:; : ;: "Bnrt,' we won't 7nake it.". . : ; v -i.

Mr. Burt; and ,slr.

I hoped that: it might^ cool down if we waited long enough, : but was in some doubt." They had not been standing long when : the enthusiastic crowd caught up with them again, this time to Mr. Sprague's intense : relief.' ' He new that. they, w ould want to inspect this v new -■• marvel • of engineering, : and' that would givehlni a', breathing spell and his machine" an op* ■ portunity to-cooL -He waited; as long f.s' he could, welcoming all comers with ! opeh arms. But after.a while a- start had to be made again, and ho turned the lever, : Instantly ho saw' that his -worat. fears were realized.. There was a buzzing and' a grinding, but the car did not budge. < The intense heat had burned out; the. armature. : By prodding ;and; pushing the car was worked along in jerks for another block, but there it stopped .hopelessly. - . USED "INSTRUMENTS." ...I Tho mob sv.-armed: all over it, and Mr. Sprague was in -a dilemma. To confess failure her ; might i im peril the success of the entire ' under taking, so in: 10ud..: aside" .he -.told" Mr. Greene he had better, go back ahd'got the "instrumdnts," as there .was probably some slight trouble with : the: circuit.: Then the. inventor, turned out tho'- lights and stretched himself out on a car -seat, hoping the crowd would melt away. It was an hour before Mr. Greene returned, bringing 'the "instruments"" with;' him— these latter being four' of the most power ful mulesfin the city of Richmond; ; the "instruments" dragged the car back : io the shed. But the main -point had been settled. ' It : had been demonstrated- tliat a self-propelled car could -round tho sharpest curve and climb the steepest hill. The rest was only a matter, of detail. -.Bj' May 4th the entire road, was operated" by : electricity, and' the retirement of tho horse cars 'throughout the ■ world had begun. ' .."
