Thisexciting or charging of the machine is manifested by a whizzing sound.If the motion be stopped, the electric charge of the cylinders lasts forseveral hours. If the handle be turned in the opposite direction, themachine does not become uncharged.

It is made withtwo circular plates of glass, one stationary, the other revolving close infront of it; two sets of combs and two Le3^den jars, with a switch betweenthem. To the back of the stationary plate are attached two sets of paperand tin-foil inductors, connected with which are two wire brushes, and tothe front of the revolving plate are attached six metal carriers with

Opposite parts of the plates and opposite inductors andcarriers become oppositely electrified, condensation takes place in the jars,and sparks pass between the sliding electrodes, which may be increasedto seven inches or more in length.

The switch, as seen in the cut, is placed between the Leyden jars,and in connection with their outer coatings, so that the induced currentbetween them is controlled by the operator.

ower. United Railways & Electric Com-pany. After passing interlocking territory the electric carsproceed to the prepayment area, discharge their pas-sengers and proceed around the loop. Most of the carsthat run to the shipyards, after completing their morn-ing work, are stored on the inbound track during theday, a shuttle car being operated on the outbound trackfrom about 9:30 to 2 and a two-car train shuttle from2 to 4. The latter is necessary on account of the com-ing of the men to work for the afternoon shift. Thisshuttle connects at the interlocking tower with themain-line service. There is more or less casual travelbetween the shipyard office and the city, which makesit imperative to provide this shuttle service duringthe hours when the demands for traffic do not necessi-tate through service. A representative of the trans-portation department is located at the shipyard all dayand has supervision of the operation and storing ofcars. During the day a representative of the shops
