a car was Duut at Uinaha about a year
ago for thtJSouthern Pacific's West aide
run and tested all the way from the Ne
braska city and it proved satisfactory
until it reached the mountain grades,
when it was found a failure and sent
back Eait. Now the Southern Pacific
has a motor car that will do . the work
and as soon as it arrives from the East
will be put on the Hillsboro run. Con
cerning this new car the Telegram says:
General Manager J. P. O'Brien, head of
the Harriman lines in the Northwest, is
arranging for the assignment of two new
motor cars to the Southern Pacific lines
in Oregon. Until he returns from New
York the time of the arrival of the
equipment will not be known. Two
cars have been experimented with on
the West side and Yumhill divisions,
but were found unsatisfactory. In the
new cars, it is said, the defects which
were found in those tried are remedied,
and with greater horse-power and seat
ing capactty the new coaches are ex
pected to prove successful. The cars
will probably be first operated on the
Oswego route, but it is understood they
are intended ultimately for service on
Fourth street, when the Ilarriman in
terests will route freight over a hiuh
bridge at Oswego to a connection with
tho main line at Milwaukie. A regular
passenger service will be maintained as
far as Forest Grave via of Hillsboro, and
the motor cars are thought to bo the
equipment best suited to the trsvel. A
remarkable advantage gained in the en
gine of the new model is that the car
speed is almost entirely controlled by
the throttle, the same as a locomotive:
even on grades the speed can be varied
from three to seventy miles an hour by
means of throttle and ipark levers only.
or it can be started on what is known as
high speed. The engine is connected to
the axle, although it is preferable to use
tho gears in putting the car in motion,
but ones ic motion the gear, are thrown
out and the speed of the car entirely
controlled by the engine. This makes
wie operation ot the car simple, and tho
economy in the consumption of gasoline
ana reduced duty on the transmission is
such that the practicability of these cars

strated. The car is finished in Cuban
