THE COMPANY KNEW A YEAR

Manager H. A. Orr of I hu Southern IT
Public Utilities company waa greatly it
pleased yesterday with the reception I d
of tiie anuunceinent of the reduction
in rates on electricity cold in the city.
One year ago the rate was 12 1-2
couts., today lt ls 10 cents, a saving
of 2 1-2 cents. tl
A year ago the company aasked for U
a renewal of its contract for five g
year* and for a renewal of its fran- tl
chise a permit lo do ousiness in the hi
city. This was not for an exclusive
franchise, as the old one was and au
was at ti rut understood of the renewal p
by many who raised a protest, and thu tl
company subsequently agreed to take ri
a 40 year franchise, in view of thu
opposition to tiie 60 year proposition.
In seeking the new contract for
live years, the company explained that
it had tn make certain repairs, im
provement!? and extensions at a con- j V
siderhule outlay of money, und for j b
that reason urged an immediate ac-1 lc
lion, promising the city to put in a
10 cent rate as soon us possible.
Council wished th(p written In the
contract and the company demurred.

him to town where medical attentional
was given and it was discovered that
he was not badly hurt.
A youngster riding a bicycle was

he was struck a glanctng blow by the
