A new electro-magnetic brake, invented by
Mr. George Westinghouse, will render the control of
cars more certain, and will help to prevent such accidents as the above. The brake is a combined rail

suspended just over the rail on each side between the
wheels, with lever connections to the wheel brakes.
When it is desired to apply the brake, a current is

Tne result was that the introduction of electric traction was delayed until this legal point was settled, and
the company has nothing to show for the unnecessary

law costs it had to incur.
"( D ) Upon the invitation of a corporation a tramway was promoted. The corporation insisted upon the
scheme being enlarged by adding lines which were
not needed, except, perhaps to increase the value of
some building plots, and which lines, in the opinion of
the company, would not for very many years pay to work,
and as there was no longer aDy prospect of the undertaking becoming remunerative, the order was withdrawn, and there is no electric traction in that town.
"(c) In the case of a tramway worked by steam
without any profit, application was made for the
necessary powers to work the line by electricity. The
CDrporation approved of the proposal, but made it a
cond tion of their assent that the electrical energy
should be purchased from an electric light station
which the corporation proposed to establish. The

as the town is a very small one, but the corporation
hoped that, by obtaining the tramway as a customer,
they would be able to make their proposed electricitybut so doubtful was this

Street Railways forcibly illustrate this inter-dependence. Such roads obviously rely for their income, and therefore in
great part for the value of their securities, upon the population and activity of the country they serve. Hence constant
reference to our State and City Supplement will be found necessary by those wishing to purchase the stocks and bonds of
street roads. Population, assessed valuation, tax rate, total debts of the counties, cities and minor municipalities are given at
length in that publication, every one of which items is an essential fact contributing more or less to any correct estimate of
the amount of suburban travel a given road commands.

Com-

pany's lease.

The Brooklyn Uity RR. Oo. is held under a 999-year lease, dated Feb.
14, 1893, guaranteeing all fixed charges, organization expenses, taxes
and 10 per cent dividend on $12,000,000 of stock. The lease is nomi1

nally to the Brooklyn Heights RR. Co. but practically to the Brooklyn
Rapid Transit Co., since that company owns the entire capital stook of
the Brooklyn Heights Company and guarantees payment of dividends
to lessor. In 1898 the Heights Company leased the Brooklyn Queens
County & Suburban RR. The lease was renewed year by year, rental
being fixed charges, taxes and organization expenses. On July 1,
the B. Q. C. A 8. began operating separately again. On April 1»
1899, the Heights Company temporarily leased the Brooklyn Union
Elevated RR. Co.— see terms under the latter— and also on the same
date the Nassau Electric RR. Later, permanent leases were made.

See terms under Nassau Electric.
The Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company in April, 1899. also acquired,
through one of its constituent companies, all the franchises and properties of the former Brooklyn & Brighton Beach RR. Co., and has converted it into an electric road. The company also then leased for the
period of 999 years the Prospect Park <fc Coney Island RR. (see terms
under the latter), the New York & Coney Island RR. and the Prospect
Park & South Brooklyn RR. In November, 1899, acquired all the
stock of the Kings County Elevated Railroad, which has since been
consolidated with the Brooklyn Union Elevated.
In April, 1900, the Brooklyn Heights Company began suit against
the Brooklyn City RR. to recover about $2,000,000 for failure to fulfill
obligations claimed to be imposed by the terms of the lease between
the two companies.

§ Five per cent after Feb. 1, 1905.
Stock— Stock authorized is $45,000,000; issued $45,000,000. The
stock was formerly held in a voting trust, but this terminated January
1, 1900, and control is now vested in the owners of the shares.
In the reorganization of Long Island Traction the old $30,000,000
stock paid an assessment of $10 per $100 share, the old stock being
reduced to $20,000,000, and $7,000,000 of 5 per cent bonds being
authorized, against $3,000,000 of Long island Traction.
The Rapid Transit stockholders voted Feb. 11, 1899, to increase
the stock from $20,000,000 to $45,000,000.— V. 68, p. 185, 329.
In April, 1899, stockholders were given the privilege of subscribing
for new stock to the extent of 7% of their holdings at par.
Bonds— Of the $7,000,000 50-year gold 5s of the Brooklyn Rap.Trans.,
$1,875,000 took up collateral trust notes. $3,000,000 went to stockholders for the assessment balance for future requirements of the
road. For description of property covered by the mortgage see V. 62,
p. 1138. See also application in V. 67, p. 904.
Brooklyn City RR. mortgage of 1891 is for $6,000,000 and is a first
lien on the old Brooklyn City road and a consol. lien on the lines
acquired by consolidation in 1890. Of the $6,000,000 issued, $4,373,000 are in the hands of the public and the balance is held in the
guaranty fund.
The total authorized issue of first consolidated mortgage gold 5s of
the Brooklyn Queens County
Suburban RR. is $4,500,000, of which
$1,616,000 are reserved for extensions, on which they will be a first
lien.
Of the $2, 84,000 outstanding, $2,255,000 in 1898 were endorsed with the guaranty of the Brooklyn Heights RR. Co. as to principal and interest, and in January, 1899, provision was made for
guaranteeing the remainder on the payment of ten dollars per bond
Both B. Q. C. & S. loans are subject to call in 1916.
The 8ea Beach Ry. 1st 4s also are guaranteed as to principal and interest by the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Co.— V. 65, p. 1219.
The Nassau Electric bonds are guaranteed (by endorsement on each
bond) by the Brooklyn Heights RR. Besides covering the mileage
directly owned they are a lien by a supplemental agreement upon the
stock of the Coney Island & Gravesend Ry. and the Sea Beach Ry.
and will become a direct lien on these lines as soon as they have been
formalh merged in the Nassau Electric. Of the total of $15,000,000
bonds authorized the unissued remainder is reserved for prior liens.

consolidation of the Cincinnati & Hamilton Electric Street Ry., Cincinnati & Miami Valley Traction Co. and Dayton Traction Co., giving
a continuous line from Dajton to College Hill, a suburb of Cincinnati, 52^z miles. Franchises on 18 miles are perpetual, that is over
private right of way; for 25 miles 50-year franchises, and on the
remaining 9 miles 25-year franchises. In a suit against the Dayton
Traction Co., the right of the latter to carry freight was upheld by the
Ohio Supreme Court on March 26, 1901. See V, 72, p. 626.
Persons who are largely interested in this road have purchased the
Cincinnati & Northwestern, a steam road, which will be equipped with
The
electricity.
It is, however, an entirely distinct organization.
Southern Ohio Traction will extend its lines in College Hill to connection with the Cincinnati & Northwestern, thus giving the former road
an entrance into Cincinnati.
In Oct 1901, purchased the entire capital stock (no funded debt) of
the Miamieburg & Germantown Traction Co., which has 5 miles of
track. The Hamilton & Linden wald Electric Transit Co. has also been
acquired. These two roads will shortly form part of the system.

also to get $100 in the stock of tlrn new corporation, which is to be

with control of the acquired lines." A syndicate composed of Henry
A. Everett, Edwird W. Moore and Ralph A. Harmon agreed, as part
of the reorganization arrangement, to advance such sums of money
up to $2,000,< 00 as may be necessary to meet accruing obligations of
the Detroit United Railway or the Michigan corporation which is to
take its place, during the period of eighteen months from Sept 4,

to 140 in 1895, to 172 in 1896. to 212 in 1901. The acquisition in
1900 of the Third Avenue system adds 216 miles more of track, making
ft grand total of nearly 430 miles of track.
The Elm Street Connecting Railway Co. was incorporated in May,

Elm St. from Centre St. to Great Jones St. and through Lafayette
Place, a distance of 6,000 feet, as a short route for the 4th Avenue line.
In March, 1900 (V. 70, p. 584), purchased in the open market a controlling Interest in the Third Avenue Railroad and in April, 1900, took
a lease of the same. In July, 1900, built a strip of road across Manhattan Street, connecting the Metropolitan system with the Third Ave.,
and began running cars through from the Battery to Fort George.

points of the two systems. The transfers are granted for an additional
fare of 3 cents, making the cost of the entire journey 8 cents. For the
latter sum a passenger can thus ride from the City Hall and South
Ferry to Yonkers, New Rochelle and Mt. Vernon.— V. 68, p. 672, 872.
Owing to failure of negotiations for a new loan to take care of a
large floating debt which had accumulated and to provide means for
pressing needs, the Third Avenue Railroad was on Feb. 28, 1900,
placed in the hands of Hugh J. Grant as receiver. On March 19, 1900,
Itwas announced that the Metropolitan Street Railway had purchased
control of the road in the open market and would provide for the rehabilitation of the company. Arrangements were at once concluded
through a syndicate, represented by Kuhn, Loeb & Co., for the sale of
$35,000,000 of the $50,000,000 new mortgage described below, and on
May 24 the property was restored to the company, passing into the
possession of the Metropolitan Street Railway Company as owners.
Kuhn, Loeb & Co. offered a block of the bonds for sale in Dec, 1900.

the principal street car lines in Utica and adjoining villages. It leases

$15,000, the lease being dated 1886 and running 99 years. In Jan., 1897,
the stockholders voted to lease the railroad and parks of the Utioa
