Still, the figures show the trend ofaffairs. As the pitmouth value of American coal is almost exactlyhalf that of British, and as there is not a very great difference in thequality of the coal of the two countries taken as a whole, it wouldseem as if the whole question of the possibility of American coal com-peting with British in the European markets depended on the cost offreight and handling between the respective mines and the markets.. THE VEVEY-MONT PELERIN FUNICULARELECTRICAL RAILWAY. By Enrico Bignumi. The installation described by Signer Bignami in the pages immediately following is not ofgreat magnitude, but it exhibits an interesting and rather unusual combination of powerapplications. A problem presenting exceptional conditions is solved simply by combiningthe separate peculiar advantages of several distinct agencies—the gas generator and engine,electric transmission and driving, the storage battery, and cable traction. For this reasonthe short descriptive account is presented.—The Editors. MONG the numerous funicular or cable-operatedrailways with which Switzerland is provided, es-pecially at much visited sites, perhaps the mostperfect example is that from Vevey to Mont Pel-erin. This line connects the city of Vevey withtwo villages, Chardonne and Beaumaroche, situ-ated on the flank of Mont Pelerin, and havingfine views as well as being pretty resorts for trav-ellers in
