STREET RAILWAY JOUR'L For August Gives Some Interesting Information Benefits Shown. The interurban electric roads of this country, as well as of the old world, become more interesting the more the public looks into the wonderful de velopment of these properties. People living in remote parts of the state of Indiana, who have no special need or opportunity for investigating the rap id advancement in electrical appli ances, litte realize the magnitude of electric railroading and what is be ing accomplished. Now that we are to have, a new line, which is today a familiar mouth-word with everybody, it behooves each community to thor oughly acquaint themselves with the progress being made. The "Street Railway Journal" of New York City, an acknowledged au thority, contains in its issue of Au gust Cth, matters of great moment to every reader, and especially those who expect to be benefitted by the coming of the Columbus, Greensburg and Richmond Traction road. The Journal among other things says: Passenger Agreements Made With Steam Roads. fThe Lake Shore Electric Railway Company has -. t .nj leted arrangema irs with Western steam roads by which it can 'irkcl p. csengers from any point on the electric line to any of the important cities of the West. The arrangement is of importance because the electric the electric fare is less than the steam road. In the case of the trough passengers the electric road carries them to its terminus and then turns them over to the steam road. The steam road gets its full fare; the electric road also gets its full fare, but the passenger has the advantage of a rate lower than the prevailing rate from his home town. For instance, the Lake Shore Electric is turning over to its stea mroad con nection in Toledo a lot of passengers who are not from Toledo territory, who ordinarily should take the steam road at other points. The traction line gets a long haul from them and the steam roads get business without cost in developing he trade." Dining Car Service on Electric Rai lways. "A very popular innovation has been inaugurated by the Grand Rap car left Grand Haven. ' The Grand way, of which T. L. Hackett is gen eral manager and freight agent. On July 25 the company's first dining car left Grand Hoven. Thee Grand Haven interurban management has for some time been thinking of ex perimenting with the system, and as it has proven so successful it will probably be maintained the balance of the season. .The Goodrich boats from Chicago have from forty to one hundred passengers every morning for the interurban going to Grand Rapids, and the limited car generally leaves so soon after the steamers arrive that these people have no opportunity to get breakfast. Consequently the din ing car system was proposed. The cars are generally so crowded that lunches will be served the passengers in their seats. The run from Grand Haven to Grand Rapids, thirty-four miles, is made in one hour and twenty minutes. A combination car is used on this train, in which baggage is car ried." The Holland Sleeping Cars. "Joseph W. Selvage, general mana ger of the Holland Palace Car com pany of Indianapolis has been going over the various roads between Indi anapolis and Zanesville with a view to placing in operation the long-talked of interurban sleeping car service through Central Ohio and Indiana. He has conferred with the operating de partments of the various roads, and this week will ro to Boston to take. up the matter with the Tucker-An-Anthony and Appleyard interests which control several of the Ohio roads that would be traversed. It is understood that the Holland Com pany's proposition is to own and oper ate the cars and furnish a porter and charge the various roads a certain amount for their use. The distance from Zanesville to Indianapolis is about 235 miles, and the large cities en route are Newark, Columbo.s, Springfield, Dayton and Richmond. As has already been pointed out by the Street Railway Journal a great many steam roads operate sleeping cars over even shorter routes than this, and they are patronized because traveling men are willing to make an all-night trip in preference t'o spending a good share of the day on such a run. It makes 'no particular difference if the electric car takes an hour or two longer for the run, and the lower fare and absence of smoke are points which would be greatly in favor of the electric sleepers. It has been stat ed repeatedly that the trial of the pro ject over this route has been up on account of a low undergrade crossing at Richmond, Ind., but it is under stood on good authority that the man agers of some of the roads concerned are fearful that the extreme weight and high power of the Holland cars now ready for operation might prove too great a strain for existing bridges and power stations, which were design ed for much lighter cars and mo tors." "The plan adopted by the different roads of the Ohio Interurban Railway Association for an interchangeable coupon book, good on all the roads, has been held up for nearly three months through the inability of the officials of the association to find a bonding house that would go on the bonds of the various roads. It will be remembered that the agreement be tween the various roads required that each road put up a bond of $10,000 to ensure the carrying out of the agree ment. The bonding houses had never heard of a proposition of this kind and declined to make any kind of a deal that the officers of the association deemed satisfactory. It s understood that this difficulty has now been sur mounted and the bonds placed, so that the books will be issued in the near future and the plan will become oper ative on the various roads within a month or six weeks." Interurban Freight Business. "The building of a freight station for the use of the interurban lines entering Indianapolis has been plann ed on a large scale, and work will proceed as soon as the Supreme court disposes of the question involved in a suit pending to test the right to haul freight through the streets. President McGowan of the Terminal Company, announced that the money had been set aside for that purpose. It is generally believed, in the light of the Fort Wayne decision, that the forthcoming decision will be favora ble to the interurban companies.' ' The C, G. & R. Traction Co. "C. N. Wilson, general manager of the Columbus, Greensburg and Rich mond Traction Company, announces that the contract for the construction of the road has been let to Westing house Church, Kerr & Company of New York. Contractors are to build the road complete in every particular, and engineers are to be on the field in a short time, and the Richmond-Con-nersville divison will be the first built. An effort will be made to complete the entire line next year. The pros pectus just issued by the company claims that it will be one of the finest equipped in the United States. The company will operate an entire pri vate right-of-way, 60 feet wide and 80 miles long, through Bartholomew, Decatur, Rush, Fayette, Union and Wayne Counties. The line will run from 4 to 18 miles from any compet ing trolley or steam road through a very fertile country, touching numer ous prosperous towns and cities, and affording access to at least four of the most beautiful and popular parks in Indiana. The prospectus estimates the annual income as follows: Limit ed service, $65,000; local service, $225,000; excursion service to parks, etc., $50,000; carload freight business, $150,000; local freight, $75,000; ex press business, $25,000 ; amusement concessions at parks, $25,000 ; baggage $2,000; pouch mail, $1,000. The of ficials are: President, A. K. Hol- lowell ; Vicee-president, H. F. Holland treasurer, William P. Mver." Refusee to Accept Freight. "An important announcement was made by officials of steam roads en tering Richmond, to the effect that the steam roads will not enter close traf fic arrangement or receive freight from the C, G. & R. and other electric lines that are now weaving their web over the state. The announce ment is regarded as worthy of notice at this time, as it indicates that the steam roads, which have always an tagonized the traction lines, intend to fight the traction interests by re fusing to receive their freight and for ward the same over their lines. It is. not destined to become a matter of legislation, and there is little doubt but that such a law can be enforced. Only recently the Indiana Supreme Court decided the law valid which re- quires express companies operating m the state to receive and forward ex press matter, and certainly the same principles of law should apply to freight traffic."
