From The Sun, Dec. 7, 1898:

"The question of lighting the village of Savage by electric lights at county expense was settled today (Dec. 6), after a long controversy by the county commissioners deciding to authorize the improvement. President Hess opposed it.

"It was arranged that the annual appropriation for this purpose should not exceed $150. The Savage Manufacturing Company agreed to furnish at their own expense a number of lights and the same company will provide all the lights. The only other village in the county lighted at county expense is Elkridge."
