On aeroitn t of tihe illited ailoilit
of electrie power that has been sup
plied during thle past two days, Tie
Advet tiser has been forced to leave
out mu11ch of its tic ws and advertisinig.
The severe dry weather has redueed
ijhe VOumew of w'a r at the power
plant.; supplying the city to such an
extent that the u sual volume of cutr
rent hias been greatly reduced. Other
industries in the city using electric
(curreit have beeni similarly aftected
as The Advertiser, cotton gins par
ticularly being without power. The
local ice :iant has been able to Iakc
hut little Ice. but has succeeded inl
securing a supply from other cities
preventing a famine. The City Coun
cii has authorized a committee to con
for with the local power company
which supplies electric current to thc
city with a view of providing at
Cinergeticy power plant. Experiene
in the past has demonstrated that th<
power comi::a'y, with its presen1
plants, Is unable to furnish a stead:
supply of electricity and it is to hN
hoped that the committee and tho
power conpany catn come to some
agreement whereby the annoyance o
curtailed service in the future cat
he largely avoided.
