At the band concert to be given to night at the Hawaiian Hotel, Mr. H. Y Almy, of Boston, will give an exhibi tion test in the grounds of the block of the new and wonderful Washington light, a light that has bcvn ;i great topic of discussion in the city since the preliminary test was made of it last Sunday night in the hotel grounds. The Washington light made its lirst appearance in America in Boston, about nine months ago. since which time it has been in constant operation, largely replacing all other known il luminants. It has passed through all the tests to which it has been subjected bv the fire underwriters, and its instal lation is now permissible by all insur ance companies under simpler condi tions than surround any other known lighting plant. The cost of installation of a plant is considerably lower than any other sys tem of lighting. The only apparatus required, aside from the burners, is a steel container or reservoir scarcely four feet high, with a diameter of about ten inches, from which th-e oil is forced by air pressure to the lamps through a copper tube one-sixteenth of an inch in diameter and which is no larger than an ordinary telephone wire. The air pressure is supplied by a small force numn on the side -of the tank. The copper tubing lis quite flexible, and can be strung through a building as readily as an electric wire, and as eas ily hidden from sight. The Washing ton Light is an exquisite bit of mechan ism, the principle involved being tne vaporization of a very fine stream of oil and the ignition of the mixture of the vapor and air in the proportion of ten per cent of vapor to ninety per cent of air, which is said to bo the most oerfect combustion known, and ac counts for the marvelous cheapness of the light. It has been aptly remarked that by this system the lamp is virtual ly burning air. The marvel of this lamp is. that each light of 1,500 candle power, costs for maintenance but tnree- fifths of a cent per hour, which was the result of a test made in the Boston Globe press rooms and also on the Boston Commons, where the hrst test exhibition was given in the presence of thousands of people. In comment ing upon this light the Boston, uioue makes the following comparison as to cost of maintenance of the Washington Light as against their electric light in stallation: ELECTRIC PLANT. Capable of running twenty 1,000 candle power arc lights: Cost of installation about $5,000 ICost of maintenance, including carbons, repairs, interest on plant, etc., per day, 20 lamps over WASHINGTON LIGHT PLANT. Capable of running twenty lamps of 1 r.on enndle nower each: Cost of installation about $975.00 Cost of maintenance per day for twenty lamps s will be noticed, the electric plant furnished only 20.000 candle power. whilP the Washington light iurnisneu 30,000 candle power from the same number of lamps. This shows tae economy of this new illuminant, but it chmiiri bp borne in mind that tne cot of maintenance in this country will be vsiicrhtlv increased in proportion as tne cost of kerosene oil in this market ex ceeds that of the Eastern markets. TVrhans one of the greatest features of this light is the fact that colors ap- the same in this light as in uay- light, showing it to be a pure white iio-ht from which all tne actinic ia of the electric and other lights are eliminated and which are so huraui to the eyes. This light was -utilized to emphasize its wonderful illuminating power in the case of the exhibition at the rt Gallerv of Doll & Richards, m Boston. The beautiful effects produced on the colors of some of the paintings bv this latest test of the wonderful l'ght caused art connoisseurs to go in raptures over it. A well known fact is that the noonday sun exposure on a painting will show to the eye all its beauty or an us ueiee-i. " ington light in brilliancy and harmon izing effects, in the opinion of artists, is equal to the sun. and in a large gal iorv illumines the room and brings out the shades and values of the painting as though sunlight itself were the il luminant. , , The Boston Post ot June r.un ia, has this to say of an exhibition of the light there. -A clear, unwavering sneen oi want, that suggested the brightness of the mkldav'sun. overspread the immediate vicinitv of Boylston and Treraont streets" last evening, and attracted the admiring attention of the thousands o. people who witnessed the illumination during the hours it was in progress. It was the first outdoor test in this sec tion of the country of the Washington light, a marvelous light in more ways than its ability to shed a glow peerless in the annals of illuminants. yet with out losing one jot or tittle of its illum inating power, possessing none of that harshness or tendency to irritate the eye. which usually accompanies lights of intense brightness, etc., etc. The great crowd united in praising the bril liant display." . The use of the Washington light is Comparing the Washington light with the only high candle power light, commercially practical, viz: the elec tric arc, it costs on an average 2 cents for the Wa-:i'.uiLon light and : cents r'or the arc. both lamps burning an equal length T time. Ir has been nwontod bv tie i-r - ica Government, and is in use m the ran vav station ot me lour leading imes cf France, and the leading boulevards of Paris are lighted with it, as well as the lighthouse on the Brittany coast, which is supplied with Washington lamns of 42.000 candle power. In Brus sels it is in general use in places of amusement and cafes, wnile in Bel gium gas and electricity have been dis carded in street lighting and this light has been substituted. The. combustion which takes place in the production of the light, being practically perfect, no soot or smoke comes from the lamp. and no accumulation of any kind forms in it. The extreme simplicity of the whole thing is so marked that the mine is great lv impressed with it. Anyone can understand it and anyone can op erate it who can care for an ordinary lamp.
