such a scheme it will cost As to thero being a reduction of expense from that required for horso or mulo power I cannot as I am not well enough acquainted with the canal to A very extended and interesting opin ion on tho feasibility of tho canal elec trical scheme was given by John of tho Ronan Towing Ronau said Tho plan which you ex plain to mo is not a new ono by any The first man who

it were adopt Supposing that all tho or more bouts on the canal were on that or tho At any timo a boat is liable to leak or to have an accident tic cur to its What then is to bo done It would block tho whole and that could not bo Ono of the main will say tho main tho introduction of this system would be its reduction of That is what wo uro looking As canal boats uro now constructed tho introduc

uro now being used off tho for no boats that did not run by electricity could navigate in those Can wo ifford to do this Then the introduction of a motor into a canal bout would in crease its tonnage
