The Fisher Road at San Jose, Cal.

We this week give another interesting view of the Fisher electric road on the shallow conduit system at San Jose, Cal. It is taken from a photograph, and illustrates very graphically the interest taken locally in the new enterprise. The fact has already been recognized that California presents a favorable field for electric railroads, and, probably, there are more such undertakings of the kind afoot in that State than in any other part of the Union. Owing to the general dryness of the climate, moreover, it has been argued that conduit systems have there an excellent opportunity to display their merits.
