It is probable tliat before tlie robins nest agaln the exUtinjï street rail war a a Datroit will have active ospoMliou in the thape of several lines of carettes traversing (he principal thoroutflifares. Tlie euterprise will be manoged by Mr. J. Huntt-r, manager of the Slivdden Cartage Uompaay. "I have ordered twenty carettet froin the manufactures in ChlCftLO," sakl Mr. Huiiter to a representativa oï the Free Press last evening, "and lliey will be put in operation üs 8')on as lUey arrive, whirh I hope will ba in a few lays, thougli tlie factories ure behiml in fiiling orders, and this may occasion soine delay. I ui backed by a stock conipiiiiy with ntnple capital and a rietermiuatioit to make the buaiuess a success. "Our llrst cna will be put on Cup avenue and we will aiiu l kespo:i streets pa ved with with asphalt as mucli as possible.Cars will run trom the nortll end of Cüss avenue to the Cliy Huil aud uil the depots, and the fare will be the same as that chur!Pd by the street railwuy compunies. l'assengers will be taken aboard at the depots and transferred at the City Hall to otlier carettes for any part of the city. We will build atables and give eraployinent to many hostlors, drivt-rs and conductors. As soou as a site can be secured a plant will be established lor the construction of our own carettea. It is our ititentioo to have the line fully equlpped at the start, so that the service cannot tall to be smUfactory. Jeflerson avenue will be the seeond thoroughfare provided with a carette service. We will be able to make much better time Ulan street cara, and will stop for pasengera wheuever aignalod. Vehicles similar to the ones which Hr. Huiiter bas ordered are now in successlul operation lu New York, Washington, Phllailelphia, Chicago and otber cities."
