OfCouncilon (Street Lights and
People Asked to Adopt
In their argument against the pro
posed ordlnince for street lights
Council lilritnd that they would soon
be able to provide the town with light
from some o.uer source than the local
Company and for very much less than
is now asked. Having absolutely noth
ing real to offer In the way of light,
Council could only hope to keep tho
town In darkness by hinting at some
thing fine to come in the future that
would amply repay everyone for the
long Indefinite period of darkness.
A number of people wanting to see
some sort of light provided for the
streets during the life of the present
generation and being a little uncertain
as to what Council really had to offer,
began to ask, when will lights be fur
nished and where will they come
Council has at last decided to take
the Public Into Its confidence and
through the columns of the News
Herald answers these questions as
follows : "Council has also had up the
question of street lights with the C. &
C. Traction Co. This company Is now
In the hands of a receiver and it will
not make such a Contract as It would
lnvolveaddltlonal expenditures. Mem
bers of Council say that they under
stand the receivership will probably
be raised soon and they bollovo that
it will then be possible to make a
contract with that Company at a very
Is this answer satisfactory ?
Do the words understand, proba
bly, soon, believe, possible on
which this answer is based seem to
offer Immediate, certain, steady lights
for the streets, or do they simply hold
out an Indefinite hope. "Some day,
some way, perhaps."
So far as the Traction Company Is
concerned In the light question the
facts are these. Last Spring the Coun
cil asked the Traction Company to
make a proposition for furnishing
street lights for so much money. The
amount offered being too little to
justify the large expenditures neces
sary to enable the Traction Company
to furnish street lights nothing has
ever been done by the receiver.
Now Council Is asking tho town to
get along without light until the
traffic between Norwood and Hlllsboro
grows to such a volume that the Trac
tlon Company can earn enough money
to raise the receivership, and then to
wait until the new management will
come to look upon the street lighting
business here as very profitable and
justifying the expenditure of a large
amount of money, and then to wait
still further until the State Depart
ment will change the Traction Com
panies charter so they can enter into
the lighting business, and then to wait
again until The Public Utilities Com
mission will recognize the necessity of
having the C. & C. Traction Company
engage In the lighting business in
Hlllsboro and will give them permis
sion to issue and sell tho necessary
securities to raise the money to pur
chase the equipment for lighting the
town, and then to keep on waiting un
til the investing public will purchase
the securities issued to furnish the
money to buy the many things that
will be needed before the town could
be successfully lighted from Perln
town. If the convenience and prosperity of
the people depend so little on well
lighted streets that they are willing to
' do without them until all these things
come to pass, then street lights are
truly of little value and uie town
might as well remain in darkntss. If
on the other hand street lights are
essential and can be secured here under
conditions as favorable as in any other
place in the State why hhould the
town be asked to wan uuleiluiiely lor
this dream to come true. adv
