BOSTON, May 2, 1887.

The Citizen's Electric Light Company, of East Boston, whose station on Condor street was destroyed by fire on the morning of March 4, to which reference has previously been made in these columns, has nearly recovered from the damage than inflicted. The new station, which is of brick, 40 x 50 feet, is about ready for the slate roof, and the engine foundations are now in position. The company expects to occupy the new station in about three weeks, and will then have an excellently appointed establishment, with a first class new plant of 185 lights, American system. The experience of this company is proof that a company with small capital, the best of modern apparatus and conservative management, can command success, even in the thinly settled suburbs of a large city, proverbially the most unfavorable situation tor a lighting business.
