REDONDO.
UNUSUAL ACTIVITY.

Redondo, Feb. 27 [Regular Correspondence]

The town is uncommonly active with the prosecution of a number of important business enterprises. The United Electric Gas and Power Company has a gang of men, including a surveying party, rebuilding the electric-light distributing system. The company recently purchased the local electric lighting system. The company recently purchased the local electric lighting system from G. J. Lindsey and will soon light Redondo in connection with its long distance transmission line connecting Santa Monica, San Pedro, Long Beach, Terminal Island and Monrovia. The long-distance line is at present within six miles of Redondo.

Two surveying parties, understood to be operating for the Standard Oil Company in connection with its oil-dockage enterprise here and for the proposed electric railroad, are also employed in town.

Mrs. Louisa A. Boland and Joseph Ordwalker are erecting brick blocks on the Front-street sites, which were burned over about two months ago. The buildings each occupy ground space 50x60 feet, and their aggregate cost will be about $6000.
