The long distance transmission plant of the Big Cottonwood Power Company, which our readers will remember was de­scribed in our pages some time ago, was started on the second of last June. They have since closed a contract with Salt Lake City to furnish three hundred 2,000 candle-power arc lights for street lighting, at $8.50 each per month. The contract is for one year and is based on the Philadelphia schedule.

They have also a ten-year contract with the Salt Lake and Ogden Gas and Electric Light Company to supply current, the minimum guarantee being 2,000,000 units annually.
