The Cambridge Electric Light Company entertained last evening, at its building on Main street, Cambridge, about 300 prominent gentlemen of the city and vicinity, including the Mayor and various city officials. The upper floor of the large building in which the company's plant is located was turned into a dining hall to accommodate the company, and lighted for the occasion with 120 electric lights. Previous to the festivities an occasion was given the guests to inspect the premises and witness the lighting of the city by Mayor Russell. At the banquet Superintendent E. H. Mulliken presided. Prayer was offered by Rev. W. S. Apsey, D. D. After-dinner speeches were made by his Honor Mayor Russell; President Corcoran, of the Common Council; Prof. A.E Dolbeare,of Tufts College; Judge Henry J. Wells, Hon. Charles Theodore Russell, Judge Wm. H. Orcutt, Superintendent of Streets McSorley, Aldermen Close and Kelley, Edgar R. Champlin, Esq., and Col. A. C. Wellington.
