Skandinaven -- January 26, 1887New Cable System
A new power cable has been invented by a well-known Dane, R. Rasmussen. It has been tried out by the Cable Car Company and found to be a great improvement over the old underground cable.
This new cable is housed in a "box" on the surface between the rails, thus facilitating the repairing of the cable in case of a break.
Several other improvements over the old system are to be found, among them being better control of speed, easier stopping, less wear and tear, and higher degree of safety.
No doubt this new cable will soon be in use throughout Chicago.
