A MEXICAN WATER POWER PROJECT.

A MEXICAN WATER POWER PROJECT.

A party led by William Mackenzie, of San Antonia, Tex., is at present in Mexico for the purpose of inaugurating, if the plans now forming mature, a scheme for generating electric power from waterfalls situated about seventy kilometres from Mexico City. The scheme is, in brief, the developing of 24,200 horsepower from the Malinaltenango Falls, which are situated in the district of Tenancingo, State of Mexico. Mr. Mackenzie is the owner of the property upon which the falls are located, and he has interested Philadelphia capitalists, who, in answer to his request, sent their engineer, George B. Burbank, to examine the property and make a report thereon. It is understood that the building electric current, are carried over is now a market for the power in the various mining enterprises in that district. It is quite possible, however, that the power will eventually be supplied to industries in Mexico City.
