Council Acts on Natural Gas
Mt1T.1T II HI! HI -Kt MOt - - .
The Cily Council at" its meeting last
night passed upon the franchise that
was offered several weeks ago, admit
ting natural gas to this city, after
Mayor Hinton and City Attorney C. A.
McMillan had been instructed to act i:
conjunction with the Light Committee
of the Council to go over the franchise,
make such changes as would safeguard
local interests and advertise for bids
upon the franchise.
The action of the Council followed
an unusual session tand the franchise
was freely discussed. Col. Stuart, of
Winchester, who as a representative
of the Central Kentucky Natural Gas
Co., presented the franchise to the
Council, was present, the object of his
visit being to confer with the mem
bers of the Board in rpgard to the ob
jections that hudjbeen marie to l.it and
whichjresulted in its rejection at a re
Col. Stuart presented his claim to
the Board and after a prolonged discus
sion it was agreed that the section ot
the franchise which contained the
clause fixing the maximum rate would
be changed t" conform with the fran
chises now in effect in Winchester,
Lexington and Mt. Sterling, and that
the rate in Paris at all times should be
the same in force and effect in those
Col. Stuart said the purpose of that
section was to equalize the rate for
gas and readily agreed to the changes
to meet the demands of the Council.
He said his company, if it purchased
the franchise, would act in good faith
with the people of Paris and would be
gin work within four months and com
plete the laying of the pipe lines to
this citywitliin six months as provided
by the franchise, andexpend a sum oE
$150,000 in the construction work.
Hon. Claude M. Thomas, represent
ing the Paris Gas and Electric Co.,
addressed the Council in an efiort to
have it refuse to grant the franchise,
stating the company which Had submit
ted the propositionghad no intention of
bringing natural gas here. He inti
mated that there bad been an effort of
certain capitalists'to buy the local gas
and electric company and after their
failure to do so, had adopted this plan
to force a sale ot the plants and equip
ment while pretending to be in good
faith in regard to bringing natural gas
to Paris. He appealed to the Council
to consider local interests before going
too deep into the affair, and from the
fact thai the prospective purchasers
of the franchise had shown no consider
ation for the local interests and had
ntimated that they would not pur
chase the property of the local plant in
event thpy should pipe gas to this city.
Col. Stuart assured Mr. Thomas and
the members of the Council that in
event his company came into posses
sion of the franchise, the company
would agree to purchase all the mains
in the city that were suitable for the
