Cambridge, Mass. The Cambridge Electric Light Company have placed an order with J. A. Grant & Co., of this city, for two more McIntosh & Seymour tandem compound engines of 200 h. p. each. So great has been the growth of the electric light business of this company that they have been compelled, temporarily, to abandon the work of furnishing power from their station for the cars on the Cambridge Division of the West End Street Railway Company until the additional engines are placed.
