the supply. He said it Is better t i

servioe now rendered
Mr. MoOrackeu made a lengthy de?
fense of the Superintendent, uoal, ano

used was superior to that used in
Riohmond and other cities, but that
the pipes were not large enough to
furnish the pressure for the, largi
quantity of gas now consumed nmi
hence the inadtquute supply. That in
a short time the new electric light
plant would be completed and rellevi
