(Note.—The point at which streetlight- 189c^a0[ ing circuits will be controlled will depend much on the system adopted and on local conditions; it is sometimes absolutely necessary that they shall be controlled from the station; in other cases for the sake of economy or convenience it is desirable to have them controlled from some other point such as the centre of distribution.)

All street lighting circuits shall be controlled by switches at (location.)

sent very closely the number of lights to be installed, yet as some changes may become necessary during the process of construction each bidder shall name in his proposal a price to be added to or deducted from the contract price for each light installed in excess of the number specified or which shall be cancelled, provided such addition or cancellation involves no change in the work already completed and shall be along the line of existing circuits. The price shall include lamp, fixtures, extra poles required and labor.
