Principal Articles Exhibited. 



AUTOMATIC RAILWAY. ( *ww.) 

A special gravity railway for carrying and storing bulk materials, 
any distance up to 600 feet, entirely automatic, and requires neither 
steam nor other power, used princ ipally on wharves for coal or ore. Over 
250 are now running on coal wharves in the city of Chicago alone. 

COAL ELEVATOR. ( jm,/.j 

A special elevator for hoisting bulk cargo from vessels. Over 100 
are working in Chicago. This and the automatic railway can be seen in 
almost every port in America. 

STEAM SHOVEL. (/*//&*,.) 

This is an automatic shovel for unloading vessels. The working 
capacity in actual work is about 100 tons per hour at a hatch, and the 
average from start to finish of vessel is about 500 to 600 tons of coal in 
a day of 10 hours. 'I he labor cost of unloading a vessel and putting the 
coal in elevated bins, ready to draw directly into carts for delivery to 
customers, is in some cases as low as one cent per ton. The mechani- 
cal details will repay a careful examination. 

NOISELESS CONVEYOR. {Full sue.) 

This is an entirely new type of conveying machine and (.very engineer 
and business manager should see its many peculiar features and under 
stand its availability for handling bulk materials in manufactories. Photo- 
graphs and drawings are exhibited of locomotive coaling plants, large 
steam power plants, coal storage yards, and ore crushing plants using this 
conveyor. 

INDUSTRIAL RAILWAY. (Fun size.) 

This system of tracks and rolling stock is especially designed for 
use in manufacturing establishments. The cars run around a curve of 
12 l'eet radius as easily as a wagon turns a corner. The advantage of 
this will be appreciated by every one who has had experience with rigid 
wheel base cars. 

SECTIONAL TRACK. (/*//&*«.) 

Narrow gauge railroad track made up complete ready to lay, with 
steel cross ties securely riveted to the rails, together with switches, curves, 
crossings, etc.

LIFT. (Full Size.) 

This is a special arrangement of inclined cable track, for use in 
manufactories having tracks on different levels driven by an independent 
steam engine. The cars are automatically carried up or down the incline. 
When the vertical lift is small, it is far quicker and better than a vertical 
elevator. 

CARS. (Full Size.) 

Various styles of our narrow gauge cars, for use in manufactories, 
that run as easily on a curve of 12 feet radius as on a straight track. 



ENGINES. 



Steam engines arranged so that all the steam passages drain down- 
ward, with no pockets where water could freeze in winter. The engine 
can be put in the top of a coal storage building without danger from frost. 



TRANSMISSION ROPE. (Full s»e, 



This is a specially made manila rope for rope driving, and this 
brand "Stevedore" is used in the great majority of rope drives in large 
power stations and in manufactories in this country. The sizes most 
commonly used for this purpose are shown. 



BOOM TRUCK. (Full s*e.) 



Used on elevator for coal hoisting on wharves. The "Paucellier 
Cell," that moves a point in a mathematically straight line, by link work, 
is used in this truck We believe this is the only commercial application 
of this interesting mechanical movement. 



PULLEY BLOCKS. (Full s*e. 



COAL TUBS 



For both wire and manila rope. Those for manila rope are fitted 
with patent bearings, having 14 tool-steel rollers, and lignumvitee sheaves, 
16 inches in diameter, 2 % inches thick. These are interesting as being 
much the largest commercial sheaves made of lignumvitee. 

. (Full Size.) 

These tubs are self-dumping and self-righting. In America they 
are universally used for unloading coal and ore vessels. 



WHEELBARROW. (f*u sue.) 

A high grade, with springs, used in coal yards, gas companies, and 
large steam plants. 

MAST AND GAFF. (A// sue.) 

Universal joints and complete fittings, used on wharves for coal 
hoisting. 

SCREENS FOR COAL. (A// s&o 

Plate and woven wire screens for retail coal dealers.
