type |* shall be so designed that

with the proper connections two or more may be operated successfully in series, so that with ordinary care and precaution any dynamo may be added to or taken from the circuit without in any manner affecting the efficient operation of the remainder, and with but a momentary fluctuation in the candle-power and steadiness of the lamps; if of the direct-current,

so designed that with the proper connections two or more may be operated successfully in parallel so that with ordinary care and precaution any dynamo may be added to or taken from the circuit without in any manner affecting the operation of the dynamos remaining in circuit or causing any change in the candle-power of the lamps; and that when two or more are operating on the same circuit the load may be divided between them in proportion to their respective capacities under all conditions from no load to full load. The dynamo(s) shall be rated with such

margin of safety that fley will not be

injured if subjected to an overload of — per cent. above such rating for a period of −.

The foundation(s) shall be capped with a framing of well-seasoned timber securely fastened thereto, the dynamo baseframe(s) being securely fastened to the framing or to the foundation through the framing, both framing and baseframe being secured in such a manner as to prevent lateral motion in either direction and to give an even bearing surface at every point. If metal is used to fasten framing or baseframe to the foundation it must be thoroughly insulated where it passes through them, and at all places liable to come in contact with the dynamo must be countersunk and covered with

There shall be provided with each dynamo one voltmeter or pressure indicator which shall remain constantly in circuit so as to indicate at all times the pressure at the point to which it is connected; one brush jig for trimming the brushes; one insulating baseframe provided with rails and a suitable device for shifting the position of the dynamo to alter the belt tension; if of the constant-potential type, one hand regulator made entirely of incombustible material, a compensator or suitable balancing device for keeping the current in each circuit practically constant; if of the constant-current type aregulator for so controlling the potential as lights are turned on or off that the current shall not vary appreciably from its normal value under any condition of load. There shall be provided for each circuit one ampere meter for indicating the current in said circuit, one ground detector which shall continuously indicate the insulation from the ground maintained at both poles and approximately the distance of any ground from the station, and one pair of lighting arresters. There shall also be provided one testing set capable of measuring up to — ohms.

This contractor shall carry to the switchboard location at — all regulator, exciter, auxiliary and main wires, leaving the ends coiled up neatly, properly tagged and sufficiently long to make the necessary switchboard connections. All main wires shall have a capacity of at least — C. M. per ampere and no wire smaller than — B. & S. or — B. W. G. shall be used. All wires shall be in
