AN AUTOMOBILE HACK SERVICE.

Baltimore and Ohio Introduces Electric Cabs in Washington.
Special to The New York Times.
WASHINGTON, April 7.—Washington is the first city in this country if not in the world, it is believed, to have an automobile hack service at a railroad station. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad has just installed such a service in connection with its trains, the carriages being of the latest and most noiseless pattern, with handsomely upholstered cushions and Electric Lamps and time pieces.
There is another illustration of the tendency here to do away with the dilapidated and unpleasant hacks at the stations, yet this modern and attractive service, which will reach out over the whole city, is provided at rates just as low as hack service of equal character. By arrangement with the conductors of the trains entering Washington the patrons of the line may have automobile hacks awaiting them on their arrival.
