THE REPORT OF TlfE ENGLISH PARLIAMENT
COMMITTEE ON TnE ELECTRIC LIGHT.
From our Regular Correspondent.
London, June 21, IS79.
The report of the select committee of the
house of commons on electric lighting was
issued yesterday. It states: The general
nature of the electric light has been well
explained in the evidence of Professor Tyn
dall, Sir William Thompson and others. It
is an evolution of scientific discovery
which lias been in active progress during
the whole of this century. Essentially the
electric light is produced by the transfer
mation of energy either through chemical
or mechanical menus. The energy may be
derived from a natural force, as for instance
a waterfall, or through combustion of a
material in the cells of a voltaic battery,
or ot fuel in a furnace. The energy being
converted into an electric current may be
used to manifest electric light by passing
between carbon points, or by rendering in
condesent solid bodies, such as irridiiim.
A remarkable feature of the electric lidit
is that it produces a transformation of en
ergy in a singularly complete manner.
Thus the energy of oae-horse power raay
be converted into gaslight, and yields a
luminosity equal to twelve-candle power;
but thu name nmottnt of energy transformed
into electric light produces l,C00-caud!e
power. It is not, therefore, sur
prising that, while many prac
tical witnesses sue serious
(lithculties in the speedy adoption of the
electric light to the useful purposes of illu
mination, tlio scientific witnesses see in
this economy of force the means of great in
dustrial developement, and believe that in
the future it is destined to take a leading
part in public and private illumination.
There is one point on which all witnesses
concurred, that its use would produce little
of that vithted air which is largely formed
by the products of combustion of ordinary
illummants. Scientific witnesses also con
sidered that in the future the plectric cur
rout might be extensively used to transmit
power ms well as light to considetable dis
tances, so that the power applied to me
chanical purposes during the day might be
made available for light during the night.
The committee only mention these opinions
ns showing the importance of allowing full
developement to a practical application of
electricity, which is believed by competent
witnesses to have future important bear
ings on industry. So fur as the practical
application of the electric light has already
gone, there seems to be no reason to doubt
that it has established itself for light-house
illumination, and is fitted to illumine large
symmetrical places, such as squares, public
halls, railway stations and workshops. It
is used in Paris for lighting shops which
require a light by which different colors
may lie distinguished, and has recently
been used in England tor the
same purpose with satisfactory
results. Many trials have been made for
street illumination with greater or less suc
cess. Compared with gas, the economy
for equal illumination does not yet appear
to be conclusively established. Although
in some cases the relative economy for
equal candle power is on the side the elec
tric light, yet in other cases gas illumina
tion of equal intensity has the advantage.
Unquestionably, the electric light lias not
made that progress which would enable it
in its preseut condition to enter into general
competition with gas for the ordinary pur
poses of domestic supply. In large build
ings the motors necessary to produce the
electric light may bo readily provided; but
so far as we have received evidence, no sys
tem of central origin and distribution suit
able to house of moderate slzo has hither
to , been, established. The committee do
NEW SERIES NO. 11.
not consider that the time has yet arrive J V a
to give general powers to private electric ,
companies to break up the streets unless by ;
consent of the local authorities. It is, i
however, desirable that local authorities
should have power togivo facilities to com-. '
panics or private individuals to conduct ex- .
periments. When the progress of inven- "
tion brings a demand for facilities to trans
mit electricity as a source of power and '
light from the common centre for manu
facturing and domestic purposes, then, no ,
doubt, the public must receive compensat
ing advantages for a monopoly of the use
of the streets. As the time for this
has not arrived, the committee do not enter
into this subject further in detail than to
say that in such a case it might be expedi
ent to give tothe municipal authority a pref
erence during a limited reriod to control
the distribution and use of the electric
light, and, failing their acceptance of such .
a prefereuce, that any monopoly given to a
private company should be restricted to the
short period required to remunerate them
for the undertaking with a reversionary
right in the municipal authority to purchase. ,
the plant and. machinery on easy terms.
But at the present time the committee do
not consider that any further specific rec
ommendation is necessary than that the
local authorities should have full powers to .
use the electric light for the purposes ot
public illumination, and that the legisla-.
ture should show its willingness, when the
demand arises, to give all reasonable pow
ers for the full developement of electricity ,
as a source of power and light.
