copper.The drop, due to the ohmic resist-ance of the wire, is eight per cent.,which is enhanced by the self-induction to ten per cent. On theextreme ends of the top cross-arms of every pole line are strunggalvanized iron wires, which aregrounded at each third or fourthpole. These iron wires, with each other withlightning arresters, placed at each end of the transmission lines, give a total andsafe protection from all lightning storms. So perfecthas been this protection, that a discharge in either thegenerating station or sub-station is virtually unknown. The transmission lines enter the city of Quebec inthat portion identified as St. Rochs, and the sub-station islocated in the centre of the industrial district, wherepower is required for the tanneries and shoe factories for distributing board in the next room. Provision haswhich the city is noted. The sub-station is 90 feet lengthy been produced, nevertheless, for two more circuits of the sameby 65 feet wide, and is two storeys high, built of brick, capacity.
