A LIGHT SUBJECT.
The Lightning Lights of the Angelic City. A HISTORY OF THE ENTERPRISE. From Small Beginnings Large Re sults Developed in the Short Space of Six Years. On the last day of the year of grace, 1882, a small engine of fifty horse-power was set in motion on the corner of Ban ning and Alameda streets, this city. It was to tarn a single electric dynamo and generate electricity to light the central part of Los Angeles. Soon after it was set in motion the lamps on the tops of half a dozen tall masts began to twinkle and then they Shed their weird but bril liant light over the houses of the An gelefios. It was one of the events which helped to bring Los Angeles into national prominence. All the country heard of the city of climate and its novel system of illumination by means of lights gener ated by electricity and hung on the tops of masts as high as that of some great admiral. For several years all visitors to this city were duly escorted to the works after the shades of night had fallen thic'-c over the earth, [and there tbey be held with wonder the single dynamo with its many-colored sparks flying from tbe conductors, and the light which cast such a pallor on all around. Los in those days the only city in the United States lighted in this way. The man who had set the plant up and set the works in motion, Col. C. 11. Howland, haa been a pioneer in more than one en terprise during bis long and active ca reer. He is still the general manager of the company, and is ably assisted to-day, as he has been from tbe first, by Mr. J. W. Warren, the efficient superintendent and electrician of the works. The writer wa) "among the very first newspaper men in the city to give an account of the electric light works, and to explain the modus operandi of the system. He has steadily watched the growth of the concern with much interest, and yester day having a spare hour he took a walk to the spot to see how tbe works look at this juncture. He found Colonel How land and Mr. Warren busy about the place looking after one detail or other at the works. BUT WHAT A CHANGE ! Instead of the one small engine he found that it had been cast aside as use less, and there was the second engine the company bought, a 14x20 engine, still doing all the work that could be got out of it, and besides this three fine 18x42 Corliss machines of the very best make, pressed to their highest possible capacity to produce motive power for the plant. The one small boiler had been replaced by four immense ones of ordinary make, and two Hazelton boilers thirty-six feet high, each containing 900 tubes 36inches long. There is boiler and engine force equal to 750 horse-power, and it is all used while tbe lights are burning. The one dynamo has increased to twelve and they are all driven at their utmost speed. The driving wheels on the Corliss engines weigh each ten tons; tbey are sixteen feet in diameter, with a force twenty-two inches wide. The pulleys on the dyna mos are twenty inches in diameter, and this combination gives a speed of 750 to 800 revolutions per minute. Each dy namo is estimated at this speed to pro duce light for sixty-live lamps of 2,000 candle power each. This ie 130,000 can dle power to each dynamo, or 1,500,000 candle power as the product of the twelve dynamos. One can easily write a million and a half candle power, but to imagine what the light of that many candles of the standard gnage would be is far beyond the power of the finite mind. But this is not all one eees at the electric light works. He has to visit the furnaces and inspect the perfect system there for generating heat before he fully comprehends the excellence of the system. BURNING OIL. In the Mikado the killer of the heir apparent ia to be treated to a bath in boiling oil as a "huraoroas" episode. At the Academy of Music just cow Rev. Sam Jones has a good deal to say about pretty hot fires. Sam could gain inspir ation by visiting Jimmy Warren's fur naces. Here is another enterprise in which Los Angeles is the pioneer city of the Union. At this moment the East is trying experiments ot all sorts in the way of burning oil. The problem has long been solved at the electric light works. The oil mixed with steam is forced into a great furnace lined with fire brick. It is injected with great force against a massive heap of these bricks in the center of the furnace. The oil and steam are regulated so that the proper amount of carbon and oxigen are brought together to consume all the fuel, leave no smoke and produce tho most heat. The water that goes into the boilers is first heated and then forced into the boilers by means of duplex pumps that work as nicely as a watch. There are repair shops and other ac cessories in the rear of the works, and oil tanks below ground. The whole business is systematized in the meet admirable manner. WHAT IS ACCOMPLISHED. Here is the motive force, and here the system which gives to Los Angeles her light. The city is six miles square, the area is thirty-six square miles, or 23,040 acres. It is the largest area on this Coast attempted to be lighted. That area is all lighted. More than this. The country beyond the city for several miles is largely the beneficiary of this system. As far off as at Anaheim, a distance of nearly thirty miles, the electric lights may be seen like stars on the horizon. As ships sail outside the mouth of Santa Monica Bay at night, the eyes of tbe watch ing mariners are attracted by the lights that gleam from the tall mast heads on the hills of Los Angeles. Prof. Geo. Davidson, of the United States Coast Survey, wrote here some time ago to learn the altitude of tbe lights above sea level with a view of calculating how far out at sea they would be visible. THE COST OF LIGHTING. For the electric light service the city pays $1,000 a year for each mast bearing three lamps of 2,000 candle power each. The total cost for lighting the city is about $2,600 per month, or $62,400 a year. San Francisco has been paying as high as $300,000 for lights. The little city of Stockton pays $20,000 a year for gas bills. Up to the present time the concern has not been a paying investment to the company. Nearly all the stock ia held in this city, Mr. L W. Hell man being the heaviest stockholder, and Mr. O. W. Childs and Hon. E. F. Spence, the next two, each holding THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 19. 1889. about the same amount. These three • ntroll the concern. There has been expended on tbe works about $250,000. The dividends thus far have been al most ton. Tbe running expenses are very h avy, and the expense of extending me system eats up all the earnings. If a new mast is ordered it costs, with its trimmings, $1,000. It it is far from another mast, the wire to make the circuit to and from it costs a good deal more. Then there is the cost of supply ing it, which runs the expeneeto such a figure that it takes two years' income to defray this outlay. This has been tbe history of the concern from its inception. In discussing the matter yesterday Mr. Howland said: "Los Angeles has a larger area lighted for less money than any other city Ln the land. The citizens get excellent service for a moderate cost, and so far the stockholders have been getting nothing. People do not reflect on the extent of the city, and that is all lighted by our system. Then the people on the outskirts want as much light as those in the center of the city. Bovlo and Brooklyn Heights comprise fully one-fourth of the area of the city. Heretofore there have been only two lightß there. Now one more is ordered. Three masts for such an area is very little." DEFECTS IN THE SYSTEM. Mr. Warren said: "There are defects in the system, or rather in the applica tion of it. At the corner of Swain and Griffin avenue, East Los Angeles, there is a mast. Wo put it where we were ordered to place it. But it is in the wrong place It is in a hole, and only a few houses get any light from it. That mast ought to be on a hill. There is no system in placing the masts. Some of them are a mile apart. They should be so placed that the light from one mast will blend with that from all the others around it. Then the shadows will all be broken up, and each spot will be well lighted. The masts ought not to be over 1,500 feet apart. Then the masts should each have four lamps. There are only three lights to the mast now, and they are so placed that there is an angle of shadow be tween each two series of rays. As to the center of the city, we are trying to show how this should be lighted now. The swinging lamps at the intersection of the streets is the only way. When we began there were few tall building? in the city. Nor were the blocks closely built up" all over. There were not so many and so dense shadows. Now tbe ma«ts cannot shine over all tbe big buildings. All the center of the city should be lighted by swinging lamps at the intersection of the streets and the masts should be set on tbe hills. In the center of the city there has not been a new mast set up in three years. We all know how the city has grown up in that time. The buildings used to be all low affairs. Now they are three, four and five story affairs, and it is hard to light over and around them." Mr. Warren took out his time card and showed the reporter how they treat the city on dark nights. The contract allows the works to "keep dark" two nights be fore the full of the moon, the night of the full, and two nights after it. As a mat ter of fact the lights are out only four nights each moon instead of five. Long lists of days were pointed out when the lights were lit a full hour before schedule time. Having taken up nearly two hours of the time of the manager and his assist ant the reporter returned to the heart of the city, thinking what a good exponent of the the growth of the city the Electric Light Works is. It began with one engine of 50 horse-power. It now uses four, aggregating 750 horse-power—an increase of 1,300 per cent. It began with one dynamo and now it haß twelve. Nor can one intelligently review the fine machinery of all sorts in tbe plant and not feel a justifiable pride that this young city should be so well equipped in the matter of lighting apparatus. San Francisco is the only city in the Union whose electric lights compare with Los Angeles. There is no plant of any sort in the United States whose machinery can elipse that in the Electric Light Workß of Los Angeles. BOARD OF HEALTH. No Selection Made Yet for Health Officer. The Board of Health met yesterday afternoon, Mayor Bryson in the chair, and Messrs. Shafer, Bryant and Hum phreys present. The committee firing the limits wherein no more than two cows can be kept recommended that the boundaries be fixed as follows: Alvarado street, Bellevue avenue, Beaudry street, Virginia street, Alameda street, Aliso street, Santa Fe avenue, Second street, San Pedro street, Ninth street, Maple avenue and Washington street. These boundaries were adopted, and it was de cided [to recommend that the Council in struct the City Attorney to draft an ord inance embodying the same. The matter of the selection of a name for Health Officer came up, and Dr. Bryant placed the Republican druggist, L. S. Thompson, in nomination. Mr. Hum phreys thought the matter should go over until Mr. Kuhrts was present, but Mr. Shafer threatened that if it did he would move at the next meeting of the Council to declare the office vacant. A roll call resulted in two votes for L. S. Thompson and two for Dr. Reese. The matter was then dropped for a while. The matters of nuisances, in relation to factories and garbage wagons, was re ferred to the Health Officer. A petition to be allowed to uee a water trough at Cape Horn was granted. Dr. Reese, who had been sent for, appeared and in answer to questions re plied that be was a resident physician of this city and had been here for six years. Quite a lively conversation fol lowed between Dr. Bryant, the Mayor and Dr. Reese, after which the meeting adjourned. A Charity Concert. The coming concert for the benefit of the Orphans' Home, which will take place at Turnverein Hall on the Ist proximo, promises to be a very enjoya ble affair.
