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. The remalnder will
