rich country which assures ample returns on
the capital invested in a railway. Its officials

wonder if the local company has not started
out to build through its exclusive southern
territory with the ultimate object of competing
for its business.

TO THRILL BIG WIRES
Some Notable Things That
Electricians Are Doing in
TROLLEYS FOB LOS ANGELES.
Bier Projects at Nevada City, Folsom
and Fresno Getting Ready
for Opera tlon.
The business boom in the electrical world
continues and new schemes for power
transmission and other electrical enter
prises are being formed, while hustling
promoters of other schemes a little older
are figuring on the cost of planta and try
ing to raise capital.
One of the newest projects in ttiis line is
a big one that interests Los Angeles. The
Los Angeles Railway Company owns forty
seven miles of street railway there, and
practically all in the southern metropolis.
Considerable of the mileage is electric,
much is cable and the rest is operated by
horse power. After years of competition,
litigation and hard times the syndicate
now proposes to organize its system. This
means more and better trolley lines for
The project of operating by electric
power the big group of mines about Ne
vada City and Grass Valley has just passed
the stage of planning. The Nevada County
Electric Power Company has closed a con
tract with the Stanley "Electric Company
of Massachusetts for two 400 horsepower
generators, and the other features of the
electrical plant, including several miles of
pole line. The company is now at work
on the flume which will "bring water from
tbe South Yuba over three miles to the
point near the Excelsior dam, where the
generating plant will be located, four
miles from Grass Valley and eight miles
from Nevada City,
The initial plant of 800 horsepower,
which will be in operation in three months,
will early be enlarged. The flume and
pipe line is being built on a basis of 2500
horsepower. The company proposes to
light Grass Valley and Isevada City, and a
franchise for an electric road for passen
gers and freight between Grass Valley and
Nevada City has been asked for from the
Supervisors. This will be the first "two
phase alternating system established in
This experiment is an illustration and a
promise of what electricity will soon do in
aiding the development and economical
operation of California mines.
The Standard Company, which estab
lished at its Bodie mines the first long
distance power-transmission plant on the
Pacific Coast, has just greatly enlarged its
plant. The company has now installed in
its mines a plant of 100 horsepower, 3000
feet from its mill, for the electrical opera
tion of its pumps, hoisting machinery, etc.
The project for bringing electric power
from the Sierras, thirty-five miles, to
Fresno is Etill in the preparatory stage,
but during the week it" has advanced in
one direction to the extent of making a
provisional contract with the General
Electric Company, and the promise that
the notable project will soon be carried
through is bright.
The coming week will see in operation
the first 1000-horsepower generator of the
Sacramento Light and Power Company,
whose great generating plant at Folsom
has been so long talked about. Three
other generators, each of horsepower,
will be established as quickly as possible.
The largest electrical plant in the State
will thus be in operation before July 1.
W. F. C. Hasson of Hasson & Hunt, con
sulting electrical engineers, has been elect
ed vice-president of the American Insti
tute of Electrical Engineers. Mr. Hasson
was the superintendent of the electrical
department "of the Midwinter Fair.

Cadets to Go to Niles Canyon.
The first encampment of the League of
the Cross Cadets will be held on July b'.
Company A, under command of Captain
Frank S. Drady, will leave for Niles Can
yon, where a picturesque spot has been se
cured. Here the boys will spend eight
days and strict military discipline will be
In compliment to Rev. Father Yorke,
the camp win be named in his honor, Camp
Yorke. Military instruction will be im
parted by Colonel Sullivan. In addition
Father Yorke and Colonel W. C. Mahoney
have consented to be present for several
days. It is expected that about sixty
members of the company will be present.
The members of the company will defray
all the expenses.
Captain Drady has arranged a pro
gramme as follows: b' a. m., reveille; 6:30,
squad drill; 7, breakfast; 8, company drill;
9, inspection; 12 m., lunch; 4:30 p.m.,
dress parade; 5, guard mount; 6, supper;
7, retreat; 9:30, tattoo; 10, taps.
As two Sundays will be spent in camp,
arrangements have been made to have
military masses on the Sundays the 7th
and 14th. On Saturday the 13th a field day
has been arranged for and a long list of
events has been prepared for the occasion.
Invitations have already been issued for
the Held day.
In order that the health of the young
soldiers may be amply protected, Dr." A. P.
Mulligan, captain and* surgeon, and Dr.
J..P. McCarthy, will remain at the camp
during the week. Camp will be struck on
Sunday afternoon of the 14th of July.
No Swedish Schism.
A. Wistrnnd, president of the Swedish-Ameri
can National Union, says that his organization
was not an offshoot of the Swedish Patriotic
League. They were never members of that
body, and they wish it so understood. This
dissipates the rumor ot schism in this par
ticular branch of the Swedish community.
