DAMP CABLES DELAY CARS.
Railroad Company's Explanation for Tie-up of Lines.
Dinner in many homes was delayed last night because of dampness on electric cables. Such was the explanation given by the Kansas City Railways Company last night for the short circuiting of the power cables yesterday afternoon. It was this short-circuiting that caused the stoppage of the street cars for about fifteen minutes. The stoppage occurred at 4:44 o'clock and ended at 4:58 o'clock.
