August 11 POWER PLANT CONSOLIDATION.-The Navy Department haa approved the plans for the perma nent consolldatlon of the power plants at the Leagu- Island Navy Yard. following out the ap provai of the tentative projeet submltted a few weeks ago The cost of the lmportant if'?**!14'11'" for which exlsting appropriations are avatlable wm be about $140,000. and the commandant at I__ague Island has been authortzed to instruct the c engineers on duty there to proceed wlth the wow of consolldatior. and expanslon to that extent. Tne eventual capacity of the plant has been taken into consideratior. by the civil engineers who have made the designs for this projeet, and lt ls now possible when the growth of League Island so Justlfles to Increase the central power plant to meet future needs. but for the present the sum named will enable the authorities to carry out the plans whlch have been approved. The department haa also authortzed lmportant work at Puget Sound Naw Yard, where the general scheme has been approved. with the detalls vet to be worok-jd out. The basis of the etectrtcal generating ph_nt will be alternatlng current. At Pensacola, Fla . Congress made provlslon for a central power plant by d'.rect approprlatton, and the only question now before the department has been the general plan of dis tributlon of power to the dlfferent deparfments of The vard Nothlng has yet been done with the plans for the central power plant at the new r.avy yard at Charleston, S. C. but recommendattons m regard to that place are expeote.. shortly, taking into conslderation the operation of the drydock pumplng plant by eleetrically drlven machinery. At Mare Island rhe questlons of power plant con? solldatlon are somewhat held up by the completion of the drvdock mechanism. There ls an unusual sltuatlon at that yard. ln that the govemment ls able to purchase Its power from the Bay Countles Power Company at a very low rate Wlth the ad vent of the new drydock tt may be necessary to add to this power, and lt is considered a wise pre caution to nave a central power plant to meet extraordinary demands at tbe yard and to make the govemment lndependent. when necessary, -of the contracting power compeny. At the New-York yard the department has this week approved all the plans for tne dlstributlng system <3nly a part of the work. to ihe extent of about $.50.000. will be done at New-York this year.
