MR. ASHMAN EXPLAINS. To the Editor. Sir,—In your issue of February 7th J under. "Northcote-Preston Electric Light Agreement," the following is reported—"The president—Northcote's electrical engineer made n mistake of about 1000 yards in the length of cable that would be required." This is incor rect. I might state for your infor mation that a map showing the plan of I the Northcote streets was handed me j by the council authorities. On this map was marked an incorrect scale from which the measurements of cable < were taken. On laying the cable I ; discovered that this map was incorrect, and I am in no way responsible for shortage of cable. I would also point out to you that the total length of the Preston feeder cable from Langwell's parade sub-station to the Preston meter house, north of Dundas street, is 1S00 yards as against 1330 yards scaled on plan handed me, and which does not coincide with the shortaire of 1000 vards ; mentioned by Cr.
