       W. H. Higgins, signal engineer of the Central Railroad of New Jersey, died at his   home at Jersey City, Wednesday, January I5, 1919. Mr. Higgins began his railroad career with the Pennsylvania in 1875 as a brakeman, serving in that capacity for four years. He then transferred to the telegraph department of that road and was with the construction forces for eight years. Later he was promoted to the position of electrician at Jersey City and he remained at that work until 1890, when he was transferred to the signal department. Here he became identified with J. P. Coleman, now consulting engineer of the Union Switch & Signal Company, in the installation of the first electro-pneumatic plants of any considerable size in the country, these installations being made at A, XA and RU towers, Jersey City. It was in 1891 that the first electric-pneumatic interlocking that employed electrically actuated switch valves was installed by the Union Switch & Signal Company at the Jersey City terminal of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Previously, hydrostatic pressure served this purpose in this system. The use of electrically actuated switch valves introduced a great number of electro magnets not previously used. The operation of these and those of signal valves, lever locks, relays, etc., quite naturally involved a materially greater normal current flow from the batteries serving the interlocking than formerly and 250 cells of gravity batteries failed to meet the needs of this particular plant. During the installation of the plant these facts became painfully conspicuous and a departure from the practice of employing gravity batteries as the machine battery became necessary.
            Mr. Higgins, who was assisting the Union Company in the installation of the plants, suggested the use of storage batteries, as previously he had assisted the Pullman people in some experiments with such cells in car lighting service. It was with some reluctance that the Union Company's representative finally agreed to the trial. Mr. Higgins secured a half dozen old chloride accumulators from the Waldo Avenue shop of the Pullman Company and sets. them up in the tower. He then wound coils of No. 9 iron telegraph wire on broomsticks and stretching these between improvised crossarms on a nearby pole he charged the batteries from the 110 volt d. c. generator by which the station was lighted. All the troubles experienced with the gravity cells disappeared the instant the six storage cells supplanted the 250 gravity cells, and this meant much to the development of the electro-pneumatic system. This incident constitutes, as far as is known, the first application of storage cells for interlocking and block signal work in America. A few months later Mr. Higgins carried 12 No. 14 wires from 12 German silver resistance coils in the tower to the 12 track circuits—one to each— formed by the train shed tracks and removed the 24 cells of gravity batteries there which unsatisfactorily met the conditions then prevailing (during the construction of the terminal). This was the first time storage batteries were applied to track circuits, and it is especially notable because the 12-volt battery was used for all 12 sections and the same battery was used for supplying the interlocking machine. The air main was in those days used as a common return, rendering practicable the grounding of one rail of each shed track to the pipe line. Mr. Higgins continued in the service of the Pennsylvania until July 1, 1901, when he accepted the position of signal engineer with the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the New York and Long Branch, which position he held at the time of his death. The signal department of the Central of New Jersey was developed under the direction of Mr. Higgins. Mr. Higgins was the inventor of the well known motion plate clip, better known as the "Higgins rail clip," which is used by a number of roads as standard on all interlocking plants where detector bars are in service. He was a member of the Railway Signal Association and served on many of its important committees. His death is a great loss to the Railway Signal Association and his large host of friends.

-ALEXANDER JEROME HIGGINS-

 Alexander J. Higgins, a leading lawyer of Jersey City, where he is gaining recognition among his professional brethren and also a share of the patronage of the public, is a native-born son of New Jersey, his birth occurring in West Hoboken, December 7, 1882. He is a son of Michael C. and Catherine (Collins) Higgins.

In early life he attended the Catholic parochial schools in the vicinity of his home, and the knowledge thus obtained was supplemented by attendance at the public schools of Jersey City, including the high school. He studied for his profession at the New York University Law School, from which institution he graduated in 1905 with the degree of Bachelor of Laws. He was admitted as an attorney at the New Jersey bar at the February term, 1905, and as a counselor at the November term, 1908. Since his admission as an attorney he has practiced his profession in Jersey City. He is an able advocate and a wise and impartial counselor, and his success in the field of labor he has chosen is assured.

Biographical Review:

George H Higgins, an enterprising and enterprising agriculturist and a prominent citizen of Clementon ,in Gloucester Township, Camden County, N. J., was born in Cambria County, Pennsylvania, August 31,1850.His parents were George G and Elizabeth (Workman) Higgins ,the father a native of Scotland. His paternal grandfather, Gibson Higgins, was a lifelong resident of Scotland, where he was engaged in general husbandry. George G. Higgins came to America at the early age of thirteen years, He had prosecuted a course of study at Edinburgh University, and had become the master of six different languages; and after his emigration to this continent he followed the honored vocation of school-teaching in Camden County, New Jersey,though he made his home in the city of Philadelphia. After spending several years in that calling, on the outbreak of the civil war he enlisted for service in behalf of his adopted land ,enrolling in Company I of the Twenty-ninth Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. He served for four years, and then, being seriously wounded, he was discharged; but he reenlisted in the Hancock Volunteer Reserves, and in this body officiated at Trenton as a recruiting officer until the termination of the war.
He subsequently, until the end of his earthy years, made his home with his son, the subject of this memoir,at Clementon ,New Jersey. Mr, George G, Higgins was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Workman, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Workman, the former of whom was engaged in general agriculture in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Of the children, six in number, whom she bore to Mr. Higgins, five still  survive, namely, John; Elmira, who married William Philson of Philadelphia; Alice, who became the wife of Harry Phomosa, of Philadelphia; George H, and Clinton, Joseph is deceased. Mr. and Mrs. George G. Higgins were members of the Presbyterian Church. He departed this life at the house of his son in his sixty-sixth year, his wife surviving him many years, dying at the venerable age of eighty-four. George H. Higgins spent his early years at the home on the paternal estate, and when eleven years old he found employment on the farm of Josiah Jenkins at Somerdale, with whom he remained eight years. In his twentieth year he went to work for J.P. Kirkbride, in whose mill and on whose farm he was employed three years. After engaging a year with ex-sheriff Gibbs he purchased in 1876 his present estate, at that time embracing fifty-five acres, of which he has disposed of twenty-five acres. Besides that property he has a farm of forty-five acres ay Gibbsboro and still another of two hundred and fifty acres in Burlington County. His home farm, the residence on which he has remodeled, he devotes to general agriculture, to the cultivation of various garden vegetables and to some measure to dairying. For ten years he, in connection with his regular pursuits, was the proprietor and manager of an extensive business in coal and wood. the former commodity he purchased by the carload and sold by the ton; and the latter he cut on his own land fifteen hundred cords per year. In 1869 Mr. Higgins was joined in wedlock with Miss Sarah A. Watson, a native of Clementon, and one the eight children of Isaac Watson, the possessor of an extensive farm in the town. Mr. Watson is a representatives of one of the oldest families in Clementon, his father having formerly owned the entire tract of country now embraced in that village. Mr. and Mrs. Higgins have four children- Isaac W.; George R.; Louis G.; and Helen C.. Mr. Higgins has rendered efficient service in several positions of public trust. For two years, during 1887 and 1888, he was a member of the board of Freeholders; for four years,1883 to 1886 inclusive, he constituted on of township committee; from 1879 to 1883 ,he officiated
as Supervisor of the Roads; and for a period of eleven years he was a member of the Executive County Committee of Camden County ,in connection with which he devoted very much of his time and thought to the public welfare. He has also represented his town and district in the New Jersey legislature for two terms,1887 and 1888.In 1895, Mr. was instrumental in having the board of Freeholders pass a motion to build a stone road from Kirkwood to Berlin.T he road, which is five miles long, and is composed of solid trap rock, and was constructed at an expense of twenty five thousand dollars and required eight months labor. It is the finest piece of road in the state, and it is the object of universal admiration. Mr. Higgins had the honor and now has the praise in acting as superintendent of its construction. In the fraternity life of the community Mr. Higgins is favorably and widely known,as in the civic and industrial. he is associated with the Odd Fellows and with the Blackwood Independent Lodge No. 64. He is likewise affiliated with the Rancocas Tribe of the Independent Order of the Redmen at Clementon and the United Order of American Mechanics at Lindenwold. Politically, his beliefs bring him into fellowship of the Republican Party. In religious faith and sympathy both Mr. Higgins and his wife are connected with the Blackwood Presbyterian Church. Mr. Higgins is in a large sense a self made man, what he has and is being chiefly due to his qualities of enterprise, industry, and progressiveness.
