Meanwhile inside the Hall of Electricity. The crowd erupts intoa joyous applause.... as President Clevelandflips on the switch.Nikola come quickly!I heard a loud “zap” in thegenerator room. All of the voltagemeters are reading zero and thetransformers have ceased their hum.I think that we are experiencinga blackout!
You did it!You lit upChicago;it’s beautiful!Hurrah forNikola Tesla!
 
Perhaps a glitch causeda short circuit, I haveto find the problem;and I’ll need to debugthe power system.I just wish that I couldfind my tool box. The Presidentis going to pressthe “on” switchany minute now! Tesla quickly searchesthrough the mazeof wires and cablesfor the short circuit. Tesla finds awire frayedby a pigeon.He skillfully reconnectsit just in time... Thank goodnessthose students wereable to find just theright tool I needed.We would have beendoomed withouttheir help!Slowly, one-by-one, thelights begin to flicker. Then like magic, the entirearea is illuminated with the vibrant glow of Tesla’s bulbs. The crowd pauses and is silent.Everyone is anxious to see what’sgoing to happen next.
