IAberdare and ,Electric Lighting.


I Aberdare and ,Electric Lighting. I TENDERS FOR THE STATION. On Tuesday a special meeting of the Aberdare District Council was held, when a further step was taken in reference to the electric lighting of the towu. It will be recalled that some four years ago the District Council went in for a Parliamentary Bill to carry out a scheme for an electric tramway service through the town, the erection of a refute destructor, and the widening of the streets. The tramway scheme was struck out of the Bill, bnt the other things were allowed. The Council proceeded with the street widening, including the construction of a now road from Aberaman to Cwmaman, which was opened last year. They also a month ago let the contract for the refuse destructor. Having failed to obtain r the tramway scheme, which it was intended to work from the refuse destructor, the Council some twelve months ago made application for a pro- visional order for the electric lighting of the centre of the town, the power to be supplied by boilers in connection with the refuse destructor which will be erected on a portion of the old Gadlys Estate, where the Gadlys ironworks once stood. This was obtained, and on Tuesday the Council met under the presidency of Mr. T. Lewis, J.P., to consider the tenders for the erection of the building and installation. Three tenders were received for the erection of the building, the tender of Mr. D. Tyssul Davies, Aberdare, for £ 1,085, being accepted. There were eighteen tenders for the erection of the generating plant, the tender of the Lancashire Dynamo and Motor Co., for £3,312, being accepted. For the batteries, nine tenders were received but the acceptance in this ease was left in the hands of Mr. Sellons, the electrical expert, be to select the best contract for maintenance. There were seven tenders for the cables, and the tender of the Callender Cable and Construction Co., for 28,247, was accepted. «.
