Hon. J. A. K1.N9,
Minister of tho Interior, Ha
Dear Sir: In complianco with
the request embodied in your let
ter of Octobor 8lBt, 1898, wo have
in conjunction with tho Superin
tendent completod a most thor
ough investigation of the Govom
mont IMectno Liight system, and
hereby submit for yonr considera
tion our report:
Tho powor houso wo find, in
many respects, in good working
condition but laoking in a few
ossontial. J.n oruor to reduco the
Qro hazard, we could advise that it
be rowired throughout and all
conductors of tho electric current
run on insulators and all holes
where thoy pass through walls or
floors bushed with high tension
glass or porcolain insulators.

We furthor find that thero nre
no automatic regulators, which nro
vory essential adjuncts to the per
fect working of a plant of that de
scription. Atprosout any varia
tion in tho load is only compen
sated for by tho attendant's mani
pulation of flie gate wheel, and
tho result is that the lights are not
as steady as thoy should bo, and,
again, if tho lino botweon tho
City and tho station should from
any cause bocomo partod it would
roliovo the machines of their

mediately race and tho probabili
ties aro that, beforo tho attpnd
ant could get it under con
trol, it would havo thrown itself
out of its case, thus ondaugoring
life ns well as wrecking property.
We would therefore suggest that
good roliablo governors bo install
ed at onco.
Next wo note tho nbsonco from
tho switchboard of automatic cir
cuit breakers. Iu lieu of them are
fusiblo outouui, which in our
opinion nro an inferior protection,
inasmuch that it is next to impos
sible to proouro fuso links that
will provo upou tost anything liko

can be adjusted to 11 nicety, conse
quently wo advido tho adoption of

Wo also find a jackscrow in uso
as a belt tighteuor owing to a de
feet in the baso frame of the
machine. This wo would relievo
by making tho nocessary repairs.
Tho shafting of tho arc light
mnphinos is out of alignment
owing to a dofectivo coupling.
This coupling wo would replace
with a now one.
"Wo find tho station somewhat

with tho porusal of a book,tntithd:
" Educational Value of tlio Chil

Stoynn Vasil TsauolT, gouornl eec

Longuo, Philadelphia. An ab
stract of some of tho Buthor's opi

"Ways of supplying playgrounds
aro loft to the circumstances of
oach caso. Land in cities is no
counted too expensive to bo de
voted to such children's "extrnva
gnnco." If philanthropists dosiro
to treat thorn with n pieco of
ground somewhere, very good, but
to go beyond this "does not pay."
PInygrounds, therefore, aro in
most caBos boing improvised from
such spaces as aro oponod by
chanco. London tins utilized
many churchyards and abandoned
cometorics. So havo mnny other
cities. Tho idea of throwing open
tho schoolyards for tho purposo
during the summer months is ra
pidly advancing. In the nrt of
entoring and using vacant lots, bo
longing to privato parties, tho chil
dren themselves nre ndepts.
But tho modt oft-ni entnmouded
way of obtaining plnygiounds is
by leaving parts iu the small pirks
or squares for thin purpoco. Parks,
ganlons nnd othot provisions for
tlio pleasures nud nmuxoments of
older people hrfvo iu a measuro al
ways boen in existence. Tho chil
dren havo not been directly con
sidered. Now, how or, as an
awakening iu the interest of tho
children has takon plat-e, tho idea
of fitting parts of tho parks to
their taste and use is forcing its
way into public noiico.
Hero it may bo remarked that
the Logislatuio of 1898 has de
signated two lots for playgrounds,
nnd it only romnins for the Exo
cutivn to carry out tho will of the
