The Consolidated Electric Light Company, of Portland, Me., took possession on Saturday of a lot of land forming a substantial addition to its real estate. About 20,000 square feet will be occupied by the increased station, which will be a two story building with 100 feet street front. The present steam capacity of 300 horse-power will be at once increased to 400 and perhaps to 500 horse-power, and it is expected that the Edison municipal system, which has been operated the past year in conjunction with the arc for street work, the lighting of the Press and Argus newspaper offices and the City Hall will soon be reinforced by the three-wire system for general commercial service and Sprague motors. Superintendent Sawyer is to be congratulated on these tangible results of three years of hard work.
