Electricity for Power and Light With
Increased Water Supply.
Anticipated Large Scheme for Future Utilization
of Rainfall In Mountains Proposed
Id connection with tho letter of
F. J. Gross, tho electrical ongineor,
which appealed in tho Bulletin
tho othor day, it can bo said that
the ideas thero put forward aro
not altogether now to tho local
authorities. Before tho lottor ap
peared Andrew Brown, superin
tendent of water works, was con
versing with a roportor of this
paper about tho projected im
provement of tho wator mains, for
which now pipos havo just boen
contracted to be furuishod.
Mr. Brown, in answer to a re
mark that probably two years
honco tho capacity of tho water
supply would renuiro to bo still
further iacroaBed, said tho time
was probably not far distant when
storago basins would bo construct
ed iu tho mountains to catch the
rainfall waters. From thoso a
bond could bo obtainod for gener
ating olectricity to operato the
town artosian wolls and street
olectrio lights. The water thus
expended would in turn form a
supply for tho higher levels of tho
city plot and ovon for mountain
When the lighting of tho

VHlley water hoad was first sug
gested which, by tho way. it was
iu tho Bulletin peoplo regarded
tho proposition with only a languid
interest as if it was "only nows
papor talk." It would bo interest
ing today to know how much
money has beon saved through the
adoption of wator instead of steam
