The new motor car, designed for
trial service between Houston and
Galveston, reached Bryan shortly
after 8 o'clock yesterday morning,
with the officials of the II. & T. C.
heretofore mentioned on board, al
having epent the night in Hearne
A number were waiting at the II.
fe T. C. passenger depot when the
car arrived, and a large crowd
soon gathered and were allowed
plenty of time to go through and
examine to their entire satisfac
tion. The officials and those in
charge of the car were very cour
teous about answering all Inquir
es. The description published in
the Eagle yesterday morning coh
ered the car very well, except some
nteresting details. Everything is
"ship shape" about it, bo much so
that it has been aptly compared
to an armored cruiser minus the
The 100-horse power gasoline
engine is in the "bow," a baggage
room a little forward or "amid
ships," and seats for the passengers
occupy the remainder of the space,
which is considerably more than
half. The car is an all steel struc
ture, well ventilated and beauti-
ulljr lighted with acetylene gas in
twenty-five opalescent panel lights.
The water utted to-cool the engine
circulates through many coils of
pipe and serves to heat , the car
comfortably. The coach weighs
50,000 pounds and cot $12,000.00.
t is handsomely and eerviceally
nit-hed in the interior, and with
wo people to each teat will carry
forty-tix paeeengir. Three peo-
e could very well occupy each
seat and leavwitanding room for a
considerable additional number.
The machinist in charge of the
engine informed the Eagle reporter
that the car can tuake CO miles per
hour, and that fifty miles is not
unusual where the cars are in regu
lar use. About 35 miles an hour
was the tchedule for the trip over
the Central from Denison to Houston.
In speaking of the eay riding
qualities of the tar Col. M. L.
Robbins, general passenger and
ticket agent of the H. & T. C,
said it reminded him of a sleigh,
there being no sideways vibration
and very little up and down mo
tion. Col. Robbins raid the car
would carry its own load and pull
two trailers with a seating capac
ity of fifty people each.
Contrary to the expectation of
those familiar with other gasoline
engines, the car is operated with
little noiae and all the fumes of the
gasoline are carried off through ex
hausts beneath the rear end and do
not reach the passengers or opera
The car looks to be entirely hobo
proof, as there are no outside pro
jections to climb, sit or bang upon
nothing but the rather hazardous
looking and irregular shaped roof.
There was much speculation
among the onlookers regarding the
availibility of such a car for scr
vice between Bryan and College,
and the opinion was quite general
that it would be a fine thing pro
vided it was operated on a regluar
schedule and not laid out to wait
for every passing train.
Col. Robbins said the car was
brought to Texas as an experiment
and he could not tell what the out
come would be.
in the Lone Star State. On the
other hand, what has the railway
ticket scalper done for lhli city
What have they done for Bexar
county or for the state of Texas?
Do they build up and develop the
country and cause two blades o;
grass to grow where only one grew
before? Do they erect buildings
that are taxable and pay revenue
to the support of the public Insti
tutions? Nay, nay, Pauline t The
ticket scalper's office is usually a
"bole in the wall," or a corner in a
business room with some one else
Instead of helping to build up the
city, the country or its interests,
be is continually trying to Injure
legitimate and honorable institu
tions, for such the railroad enter-
prises of Texas are. It is just as
dishonorable to beat a railroad
corporation as it is an individual,
A wrong is a wrong, no matter
who Buffers by the injury, and 1
cannot help comparing the San
Antonio of today with the San An
tonio of. twenty-two years ago,
when I first came to this "neck of
the woods," and I often wonder
what the Alamo City would have
amounted to without the railrctds,
with their ribbons of steel extend
ing in all directions, and "still
there's more to follow." This is a
good time for all good men to get
together and- put the eternal ki
bosh on the ticket scalper and his
nefarious business. .His ways
ike the ways of the heathen Chi
nee are very peculiar.
I may be a little ancient in my
ideas, but I've still got a sneaking
idea that honenty is the beet pol-
cy, and therefore I am opposed to
atrotiizing the ticket scalper in
any Tray. Let him alone and he'll
quit bueinefs without a state law,
which, thank heaven, the next
islature will enact in spite of
the gigantic efiorts of the El Pa.-o
mwnbrokers, who ought to be in
more honorable business. Then,
there's that other nuisfauce, the
personal damage suit man, always
obbing up and bringing suit
gainst a railroad or some other
corporation. He a tarred with the
same stick the scalper is, and he
ought to be "quelched" along with
the fellow who brings fake damage
age suits. What an unholy
trinity! Away with them and thair
deeds. Yours respectfully,

automaton that has ever been con
structed was exhibited at Exeter ex
change, 1-oudon. This automatic won
der represented a country gentleman's
bouse, aud was of such Intricate and
elaborate construction that no one dis
puted the claim of the exhIMtor when
be declared that be bad worked twenty-
seven years In perfecting It It showed
the regulation English country bouse,
with parks, gardens, cascades, temples,
bridges, etc, besides over 100 appro
priately clad human figures lu the gar
dens, on the bridges, chopping wood
and at various building operations. In
the park were several deer moving
naturally about and four homes aud a
coach following the meandering road.
Resides the above the figures of boys
were seen fishing from the bridges,
while a boat load of ladles aud gentle
men regularly rowed across au en
largement lu the brook, much to the
consternation of the natural looking
fljmrca of gee nud ducks which were
paddling alHWt in the water. The
whole of these animate and luaulniate
figures were Inclosed In a space only
