SWANSEA ELECTRICITY WORK. CHANGES AT THE CENTRAL AND UPLANDS STATIONS. At, Thursday's meeting of the Swansea j Electnic Lighting Committee, Alderman Devonald in the chair, the Electrical En- gineer (Mr. J. W. Burr) reported that s ince i,h(A last report 27 new applications for supply had been received. Since the last meeting, Messrs. Young and leldham had joined his Majesty's forces, whilst Mr. A. H. R. Tregaskes had given up his pupilage and left the works. In view of this he (the Engineer) had been obliged to reorganise the staff. The Committee adopted a recommenda- tion of the Engineer to &ell the engines and dynamos at the works known as Nos. 1 and 2 sets, and to take one of the rotaries from the Uplands sub-station to the works, and that the feeder pillars at the Hospital, and Kiing Edward's-road be connected by means of a feeder. The Uplands sub- station could then be shut down and the pressure at Uplands maintained from the works. The cost of the alteration would be about P-IM, and the removal of the engines would leave sufficient space for the installa- tion of a 3,000 kiJowat turbine. The Engineer said that the change would be of benefit to the staff, who were now working very long hours. It was further reported by the engineer that great difficulty had been experienced in obtaining fittings and apparatus for the showrooms in Wind-street on account of all the electrical firms being engaged on muni- tion work. However, he was of opinion that sufficient ma.te.-ial would be obtained justify the opening of the showrooms on or after the 24th inst. It was agreed to have a public opening. I
