CAPABLE OF GREAT SPEED
Cars on Road Projected Between New
York and Newark, N. J. can
Travel 80 Miles an Hour.
Three of the former rapid tiansu
commissioners in New York have be
come interested in a project to build
nil elevated four track monorail road
between Jersey City and Newark, N.J.
with the intention of carrying passen
gers from New York to Newark lor ;
cents and from New York to Jersey
City for o cents. Announcement of the
new project was made the other day
simultaneously with the successful
conclusion of a trial of the new mono
rail scheme in tho exposition grounds
at Jamestown, pays the New York
It has Itocii ascertained definitely
that John II. Starin, formerly vice
president of the rapid transit com
mission lu New York; Charles Stew
art Smith and "Woodbury Langeloii. al
so former members of the commission,
ere to give the new company the be-n-etit
of their experience-.
If possible connect ion is to lie made
with the Mc.Uloo tunnel system be
tween Joi-sey City, llobokcn and New
York, now Hearing completion. If this
plan fails the new company will in
stall fast ferry service with specially
constructed boats built for speed and
passenger service only. It Is stated
that the whole trip to Newark, includ
ing the journey by ferry, will be made
more ipiiekly by the monorail than by
the steam railroads.
It was stated on behalf of (hose in
terested In the new company that their
purpose is to institute a real rapid
transit system rather than to build up
a great money making enterprise. The
announced aims of the concern are to
give exceptionally good service, to
avoid overcapitalization, to maintain
harmonious relations with the public
aiul with employees and to prove that
an enterprise conducted on highly
moral grounds can be made successful
The system to be used differs radical
ly from tlje P.ehr monorail system, pro
posed for a road fr:m P.rooklyn to
Conev Island. It Is the invention of
Howard 11. Tunis, a P.altimore en
gineer. It is claimed that it can be
constructed at less than half the cost
of n trolley road, that it can be oper
ated at one-third the expense and that
eighty milcs an hour can be made with
ease and safety. From the explana
tions given out it appears that the
chief feature of the new scheme Is it

P.rielly stated, the system consists of
a long, somewhat narrow, cigar shaped
ear. running on two trucks if two
wheels, set tandem, each over one raii
Overhead the car is supported ley an
equilibrium device' which holds the ear
upright under all possible conditions
and at tue same time acts as a cinvey-
or of the electrical current, doing away
with the dangerous third rail. I5y rea
son of this device it is possible to op
erate extremely light cars over an ex
tremely light structure. With snob
curs the Inventor and others claim that

Supported above the car by Iron
bents on each side of the track are twj
small L shaped rails about thirty inches
apart. Tlie equilibrium device consists
of a ladder-like trolley pole arrange
ment, at the end of which there are

tne ij snapea rails. Tne trucks on
which the little wheels rest may not
be rcfcioved from the rails without tak
ing the structure apart, so that there is
no chance of the wheels "jumping" and
letting the ear topple over sideways.
The body of the car Is of standard con
struction, forty -seven feet Umg, six
feet wide, and It has eight motors.
Mr. Starin, who is already identified
with several transportation interests,
"I have been for more than thirty
years identified with transportation in
terests in one way or another, and for
seventeen years I have been a member
of the rapid transit ltoards of New
York city ami engaged in an effort,
which has not been entirely unsuccess
ful, to work out the great urban trans
portation problems that confront the
city, and it has given me considerable
pleasure to be able to assist in the de
velopment of what is without doubt the
most wonderful railroad system the
world has yet seen. First of all. It
will do in an effective manner that
which Is the main business of a rail
roaddeliver you at your destination
with promptness. An average; speed
of- from (id to 100 miles an hour for
passenger trains ought to satisfy even
this hurrying age-, and if it doesn't the
speed can easily be pushed up to even
a higher average.
"The thing that has appealed to me
lu this new system Is Its striklin com
mercial advantages. It can be built
anywhere In a narrow street, because
it Is a narrow road and has only one
rail, thus taking up but little space;
in rough and inaccessible country be
cause it is the master of the hard prob
lems of grades, and wherever it is built
its construction is cheap compared with
the great oost of steam and even trol-
lcv railroads. Take, for instance, the
three tra-k, steed viaduct extension of
the subway in the P.ronx. That line
cost the enormous sum of .7."i,hio
mile to build. This monorail can be
built for $".". M'H a mile, four tracked

fairly made business hum with the irresistible
force of their bargains. We are now preparing

made extensive preparations. It won't be long
before these new fall wearables will be making
their appearance, thus naturally crowding out
whatever may be left of our spring and summer
stock. Our patrons always look forward to M. 6c
K. July sales because they know there is no
juggling with prices every article and every price
is always just as our newspaper statements call
for. We invite our patrons to an investigation of
the extra special values to see is convincing, be
sides the goods and prices speak for themselves.
Our 35c or three for $1 sale is particularly at
tractive, comprising many of ourlormer 50c ar
ticles which were excellent values at their original
low price of 50c. All our 50c underwear, 50c hos
