Cable Roads in San Francisco. [Extract from the oration ol W. W. Morrow at the opening ef the Mechanics' t air. | In this city, under our very eyee, we bave seen h revolution created in tbe system of street railroads, and, wbile to tbe public of Ban Francisco tbe transition bas been gradual and familiar, tbe inven tion is of sucb a cbaracter as to de serve here special mention, be cause tbe inventor was for many years tbe President of tbis noble and enterprising society, aud the invention itself Is another example of what Califoroians are doiug for tbe world. For many years horse dealt has been the principal motive power used in carrying people to and fro iv cities and towns. Aud as tbe democratic omnibus succeeded the more aristocratic cab, it in time became supplanted by the less noisy, more couveuieut and less costly street car; but they all bad to be drawn by horses, and as these modes of conveyance multiplied, as they naturally<did from tbeir con venient and cheap mode of trausit, more horses were used and a larger number killed by overwork, espe cially on streets where the ascent was steep, or where the number of passengers carried was very great. Steam motors, compressed air, latent steam and other plans bad been tried without success, and methods tbat could be operated ou oountry roads were not permitted to be used in cities and towns. . Large corporations were formed for carry iug on street railroad traf fic, and possessing thousands of horses, immense stables for tbeir oare and maintenance were re quired. In sucb cities as Philadelphia, where streets are almost level and laid out at rigbt angles, the city railroad oompanies have a oar iine ► on every street, and make large profits on tbeir passengers at the rate of fare charged. But In many cities like San Fran cisco, where tbe streets run up and over steep bills, the service to tbe publio was poor, tbe remuneration to the oompany was not great, wbile tbe comfort and care of tbe poor horses were oertainly as bad as it oould possibly be. The higher bills of tbe city were uninviting except to the enthusi astic climber wbo had just arrived and wanted to get a bird's-eye view of tbe Htate. At tbe north end of tbe oity the oars of the Omnibus Railroad Com pany were drawn up Jackson street from Kearny to Stockton, a dis tance of 875 feet, by five horses, the elevation in that distance being 7S feet. In tbe winter evenings, when the oars were crowded, the struggle of these unfortunate horses up that steep hill was something terrible. It was on such an occasion in the winter of 1869 that A. S. Hallidle « was watching the efforts of the * horses to draw up an overcrowded car, when one of the animals slipped on the wet cobbles and fell, throwing down the horse behind him. Tbe brakes were immediate ly put on, and the horses urged to regain their footing, but tbe brakes being insufficient to hold the car ou tbe steep incline, it slid back ward, dragging the horses down tbe bill to the crossing below. To tbis incident are we indebted for the cable road of to-day aud all Its attendant comforts. A. S. HALLIDIE'S PLANS MATURED, Within two years Mr. Hallidie had matured bis plans for a road, but like all such inventions aud en terprises, it did not at first meet with much encouragement, and but for tbe assistance aud co-operation of two or three gentlemen, wbo saw In it mors than the mere fancy of an inventive mind, it would have ■lumbered where It was born. In September, 1873, tbe first rail road of the kind ever built was con structed on Clay street in this olty, and, while a great many difficul ties and obstacles bad been over come, and notwithstanding it sur prised the majority of tbe people by tbe simplicity of its working, it yet failed for some time to con vince the skeptical of its ultimate success, but as it continued to run month after month under tbe care and guidance of its master, it grad ually won the confidence and ad miration of the entire public. The simple principles involved and tbeir ingenious adaptation mark tbe value of tbe invention and the success of the undertaking. And what a revolution it has made in the mode of transporting passengers in this oity! The bills have fallen down before It, and tbey are now even more ac cessible and oertainly more desira bie for residence than the level por tions of the city. Where the goats used to frolic on California street hill, mighty rail road kings bave built tbeir palaces. The bald old hill bas taken on all the bewitching charms of a young girl with a bright, new poke bon net, wbile Clay street and Russian hills, decked out in new finery, fiirt with those brown old bills across tbe Gate in Marin county. SUMMIT OF CLAY-STREET HILL, Tbe summit of Clay-Btreet hill, reached by tbe cable road, is 307 feet above the starting point at Kearny street, and tbe time re quired to make the transit ia six minutes by oars tbat depart every five minutes, ascending tbe steep incline as noiselessly and as lightly aa a bird in flight. The feelings of personal discomfort, of commiser ation for tbe tired and straining horses are entirely absent, and tbe weary passenger returning home enjoys a rest of body and soul. Property on these bills, which before tbe advent of these roads oould be purchased at almost any price, now commands high figures and is being rapidly built upon and improved. It is eight years ago yesterday since the first experimental trip was made on tbe Clay-street road, whiob was at time 2,880 feet long. Since then the road has been ex tended to double that length. Four other roads have been built, and another is now incouseof construc tion. Oa tbe five roads now in op eration steam macbinery ia em ployed of tbe aggregate of 1,300 horse-power, keeping in motion for eighteen hours each day seven teen miles of steel wire rope, con taining 2,350 miles of wire and transporting 40,000 passengers daily. Under tbe old system, one horse would draw, on a nearly level road, •n average of forty passengers daily; but ten thousand horses oould not perform tbe work of our present cable roads. Another item ia tho expense. On the Clay-street oaMo road thirty-six pounds of coal will draw forty passengers; or, in other words, 9-10 of a pound of coal, oost 8-10 Of one cent, represents tbe cost of fuel in drawing one passen ger. While the underground railroad is the peculiar feature of London, and the elevated railroad is In a like manner tbe feature of New York, San Franolsoo takes special pride in her cable roads, In wbioh tbere has already been invested a oapital of one and one-fourth millions of dollars. The enterprising oity of Cbieago, that never does things by halves, is building a series of cable roads which will cost over two millions of dollars. Thus it will appear that while the deßign of tbe inventor was more particularly to overcome tbe difficulties of steep grades, it will prove tbere, as it baa here, admir ably adapted to level streets, and tbe result will probably be that tbe principal cities of tbe Union will be compelled to adopt tbe system on account of its economy, noise lessnees, rapidity and general com fort.
