THE other papers presented at this meeting deal with the application of electricity on shipboard. Proper terminals are closely allied with shipping and very necessary for its operation, and it is, therefore, the purpose of this paper to show in a general way the necessity of electrifying terminals, presenting to shipping men some knowledge of what can be done with electrical apparatus to simplify their problems, and to present to electrical engineers some idea of such shipping problems as concern terminals.
