THIS is essentially a book for experts, and especially American experts. The English engineer may find here and there in the book some information that will be useful, but he must be an expert to understand it. On the title-page we reel that this is “Volume Two,” and that it deals with “Engineering Preliminaries and Direct-current Substations.” By preliminaries the author means statistics as to the relations between the number of inhabitants in a town and their requirements in the way of travelling facilities.
