Paris is Assured ol Natural Gas.
The assurance of a natural gas sup
ply for Paris has been received by
. Mayor Hinton from Capt. John Ton
' kin, president of the Central Kentucky
i Natural Gas Co., who was a visitor in
According to Capt. Tonkin, the natu
ral gas mains extending from the
j Wayne countv fields will be laid to
: Pans next spring and that a natural
gas supply will be turned into Paris
Capt. Tonkin is vastly interested in
the development of the Eastern Ken
tucky gas and coal fields and thinks
that piping the line to Paris would re-
I suit in a great profit to his company,
j The distance irom the line to this city
is not more than fourteen miles and to
i extend the mains to Paris would be a
! comparatively small undertaking.
It was first intended to becin the
work this fall but fearing cold weather
would hamper the progress of the line
it was thought best to abandon the
idea until next spring.
