from .?200,(XX) to $2.10,IKX) in similar
work, says tlio San Kr.iiicisco Chron

Ouo of I ho ollirors of tlio company
wln'ii interrogated upon tho suiji-ot
said: "This laying of tho wires un
derground is, as a nutter of course,
an usponsivo operation; that is to
"V. " ,t vost !8 i'0."""'""-''-
greater than that of stringing the
wirus ovcrliuml. but in tho lunir run
it is fnr inoro I'conoinii'al nnd wo aro
(ilacing tho wires utiriorroitml as
fast ts wo fool warranted in making
tho outlay. Tho Mtuplost proof
which I can oiror of tho assort inn 1
innko is to lio found in a comparison
of tho rates of currout charod for
1 by tho ovorhoad sorvico as compared
1 with thoso for uudorrouud sorvico.
I ''Tho company has boon for yoars
past steadily roduciiiK tho jirico of
currout. Theso reductions aro duo
i to many causes which may bo sum
med up," said tho ollicor, "in general
terms as tho cheapening of produe
lion. In addition to the advantages
of laying the wires underground,
many other improvements have been
made in tho plant of tho company,
and 1 question if there is any con
cern iu this city which has so asidu
ously adopted every valuable inven
tion for tho advancement of its busi
ness and tho economic production
of its manufacture as the Kdisou
Light and 1'ower Company. In the
1 matter of condensing water the com
pany has iu tho past year built at
largo expense a concrete tunnel,
which, running out into the bay,
convoys salt water to the condensers
and so saves tho cost of fresh water.
' Tho boilers aro of tho latest and
' most economical type, and have re
cently been fitted with automatic
' coal feeders. The engines of the
company aro tho most modern iu
tho United States for the purpo-o.
Thoy aro of tho regular marine type,
and aro constructed on a most econo
( "Tho best results are obtained
i when tho engines aro run at an even
speed developing an oven amount of
power night and day. Tho nearer
wo can keep our mains at their full-
i est carrying capacity tho clieapnr
' wo can sell current, and as a conse
quence the more our patronage is
increased tho cheaper will bo not
only tho cost of production to us
i but of consumption to tho user. It
is to our interohl to make reductions
1 whenever practicable, as the cheaper
wo can sell current the larger tho
' number of our clixnts will be.
"In February, lMl , wo made a
general reduction of 10 per cent,
which was the fifth reduction in as
many yoars, and we are now prepar-
iug a schedule of rates to go into
, ell'ect January 1, 18!t."i, which will
' give our customers a further roduc-
i tion of 10 per cent.
1 "Another feature of the business
which should not be lost sight of is
tho wiring of buildings. Prior to
February, l.S'.CI, wiring was douo in
discriminately, and often by irre
sponsible parties. Tho result was
that when current was turned on
for lightiug the wiring would not
stand. Generally the electric light
ing company was blamed for poor
sorvico so that our company iu Feb
ruary, 181KJ, announced that there
after it would do all incandescent
wiring, where current was to be sup
plied from its mains, at actual cost,
and since then uo have done thou
sands of dollars worth of wiring at
cost, aud often at a loss, but tho end
justified tho means, and now we
raroly have a complaint on account
of poor wiring.
