Members of the city commission have
Issued a statement to the public on their
position In tho matter of the compromise
effected between the clty-and the Ouinha
Gas company. A public meeting Is calico:
for Saturday afternoon. The statement
"The cltv council feels that the gas
consumers and citizens generally of
Omaha should know the real purport of
the com prom lee agreement with the
Omaha Otis company relative to rates to
bo charged fur gas and setting forth the
tax to be paid to the city on tho output
of the company.
"This ugl cement was reached only
after nn extended'" series of conferences
between a commlttci of the council and
representatives of the gas company. On
the part of tho council eommltteo the
contention all along wns that tho gas
consumers of Omaha wero entitled to a
reduction In price to It per 1,000 feet.
This proposed agreoment, If carried out.
will accomplish that purpose and will
mean a saving of at least $120,000 to tho
gas consumers In tho first year. This
saving must naturally Increase by a very
substantial sum In the aggregate with
every passing year. The Income to the
city treasury, under the agreement, will
also lncreaso by a definite scheme of
progression as the output of tho com

'If the citizens of Omaha me m
earnest In their desire for dollar gar,
they should let the members of the
Douglas county delegation In the state
legislature know their wishes, so '.hat
they bo given a chaucu to at least vote
on the provisions of the bill which ho
legislature Is asked to pais. A voto of
the people of tho city Is the only test
that can bo considered to have Riiy merit
at this time. There will be no chanco
record for or against the proposed com
for the citizens to put themselves on
promise unless tho legislature confers on
tho council the power to call nn election
on this mutter. If the slogan "Let the
people rule" has any merit here Is 11
chanco to test It. '

future growth of their city, they will
sco some merit In tile plan outlined for
an lncreaso of Incomo to tho city treas

grows from year to year. Within ,cn
years the Income from that source should
be of sufficient magnitude to materially
reduce the sum of gcuoial taxation. At
tho same time, while this Income has
been growing tho consumer will have
been enjoying the benefit of tho reduced
cost of gas. This, after all, Is tho main
point to be kept In mind. ?
