approved form of lug or set screw, in all cases care being taken to secure good and sufficient contact to prevent heating and insure permanency; when made with lugs or set screws they shall be in plain sight and easily accessible for tightening. Connecting wires shall be so run and secured that crosses or grounds are impossible in the normal operation of the plant. 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.

This contractor shall furnish, and, un- . less otherwise specified, erect the following apparatus and material:

33. Dynamos. (See Note: p. 43, sec. 21.)

- dynamo(s) (each) having a capacity of — kilowatts. The maximum voltage at the terminals of the dynamo(s) shall not exceed — volts at full load.

The dynamo(s) shall be of the latest and most efficient pattern; mounted on a base provided with an adjustable belt tightener so that the belt may be tightened while in operation; capable of operating under full load for — consecutive hours without increasing the temperature of any part, especially the armature, fields and commutator, to such a degree as to en

danger the insulation or decrease the efficiency of operation; shall not spark unduly with proper care of the commutator and adjustment of the brushes, nor under considerable variation of load; shall have an insulation resistance of not less than - ohms between all parts insulated from each other; shall be adapted to operate at such speed as will allow the use of high-speed, automatic cut-off engines belted direct; shall be provided with efficient oiling devices; the armature shall be balanced both electrically and mechanical- · ly so that there will be no tendency to spring the shaft or to draw the armature toward either bearing so as to cause excessive friction and heating, and no vibration; if of the direct and constant-current tyno S they ,

shall be so designed that it 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, constant-potential type ihey shall be 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 they will not be injured if subjected to an overload of per cent. above such rating for a period of —
