Abstract

Results of Grower's(?) tests comparing different meters; he'll continue tests. "Am pushing Bergmann with the cheese knife model," but won't need till consumption in 1st district "is considerable." 250 light machine will be ready to test agn today. Clarke and Dean are "decidedly against the high speed" b/c too much wear on magnet. 5th dynamo for Pearl St. tested OK; spark wasn't too bad. Discusses appropriate load for street safety catches. "Do you propose to start the light outside the station at all before the net work is complete in every detail?" TAE: "no"
