" Citizens had better keep their
lamps ready all winter," said Aid.
.McSorley at the nieelinf; of the
city council last, nifjlit during a
dieoussion of the electric liplit and
power service. Mr. McSorley Hi-
olared that it whs no uee deceiving
lhe people and that until the new
unit was installed at the power
plant trouble might he expected
from time to time. On account of
the war it hml been impossible for
tbe council to obtain delivery of
the new machinery.
During the discussion it wus explained that a log in the flume wus
the cause of the present interruption of the service. It is possible
to provide power from the old unit
sometimes when the current is not
-iill'u ient to provide light.
The mayor Baid that comment
had been made because Aid.
Smythe had light at the Empress
theatre when the rest of the town
was in darkness, and Aid. Smythe
exiilsitied that he had connections
with both the power and light ser-
vice    anil    hail    special     electrical
machinery which enabled   him   to
convert the power into light.
An attempt, was made yetterday
to blow away tbe  obstructing  log
S15G nt the power plant with dynamite
but without succe.-s. The auxiliary yu-, producer engine is being
brought into service.
