Abstract

[from Phila] Test of Edison 200 machine finished; don't have final figures but heard it worked @ 95% electrical efficiency and 90% external efficiency (lower with lighter loads---gives figs). The "Electrical Committee are touchy and childish.....object to being questioned about their work." Plans for upcoming tests of Weston & Edison machines. Howell gives permission to use Edison lamps for our tests; think it's good idea.
