The crew of wire workers, who were stringing the wire from Winona to Hatfield for the La Crosse Water Power Company, finished through and connected at the power house Monday, thus supplying the final connecting link to make what is expected to be the biggest water power in the state of Wisconsin. The current has doubtless since been turned on, and this long projected and confidently anticipated powerful impetus to metropolitan industry at motors and the proofs of efficiency to complete the fact. That the proofs will be forthcoming is the wish of every good citizen, but it seems to the Banner a matter of profound regret that uses for the power could not be found nearer the base of supply.
