Editor's Notes

requests accurate ground plan of lot for station at Appleton, are there buildings there? Are water wheels in position, size of shaft, position relative to lot? If no wheel, will local co erect one and supply power and building or "do they expect me to tender for both of these items?" are they keeping dynamos as they are presently being operated, or will they be moved to station? Size of wires connecting places lighted from each dynamo to house lighted, position and size of poles? "In fact I want all possible information in relation to the plant now at Appleton."; will area marked on blue print be sufficient? "white line dots on map represent shade trees, and they prevent us from running where we want to."
