FOR PERIOD OF TWO YEARS LAD HAS BEEN UNHEARD FROM BUT ! FATHER IS HOPEFUL OF STRIK ING A CLUE. FeU.-uii'im Special. 1 Indianapolis, April 2. Is the kidnap ed little boy of Dr. S. Byers, of Seeley-! ville, Ind., in Indiana? j Renewed efforts to find the boy who was cruelly stolen from his parents nearly two years ago, are being made, and Dr. Byers has written to the editor of the Sun a statement of the cse, ask ing fr the interest and sympathy of the public. The boy, as stated in more detail In Dr. Byers' accompanying article, was stolen from Seeleyville, a small Indi ana mining town, May 29, 1904. Since that time the father has spent all his means in the search. He is now traveling about on a fund of $1,500, subscribed for the purpose in Indiana, running down all clews. No little lad of a boy that meets his eye escapes a scrutiny such as only a dis tracted parent can give. Mine Workers Interested. Only recently Dr. Byers was given great comfort by the action of the United Mine Workers of America. The miners, in convention to decide the deliberations long enough to take up the troubles of this agonized father and mother. President Mitchell told the story of little Richmond Byers, and the miners voted $3,000 out of the treasury, to assist in the search. A resolution was dopted to present the case to every miners' lodge in the United Sttes and to call on every American miner to constitute (himself a detective of one to watch for the missing lad. TO PURCHASE LIGHT PLANT sion of the electric light situation In this city was had. At the last of such meetings the Mayor was invited to be present and, during the discus sion, asked that any proposition I had to make should be submitted in definite form, and that the same would receive proper consideration. I submit herewith an honest offer for the purchase of the Municipal Electric Lighting Plant of the City of Richmond. I represent financial Interests that are ready with the nec essary capital to make such propo sition and to accept proper franchises as may be agreed upon between rep resentatives of the City and the new company which will be organized un der the laws of the State of Indiana for the purpose of taking over the municipal plant and the competing plant known as the Light, Heat & Power Company, and with this In view I submit the attached proposi tion. Very respectfully yours Edwin E. Witherby. The- Proposition. Richmond, Indiana, April 2nd, 1906. To the Mayor and Common Council of the City of Richmond, Indiana. Gentlemen: There is a condition existing In your City at the present time that has been brought about in a most natural way and one that, if allowed to continue, will mean sure loss to the City, as an Inevitable result. Under the original conditions the City was justified in taking the course that it did, but, as the matter stands today, that which was sought at the time ha3 finally been accomplished, the result being the lowest prices for electric lighting in any city in India na, In fact prices so low that the two fully equipped electric lighting plants now in operation cannot continue In definitely. We assume that trie electric light business, from the City's standpoint, is simply a business proposition and not one of sentiment; that, if the same or better results can be accom plished without risk of loss to the City or its citizens, you would not care to take the chance of further loss in keeping the light plant. To solve the question which now presents itself to you, we stand ready to purchase the City's plant at Its cost, as may appear npon the books of the City of Richmond and, at the same time, agree to protect the City and its citizens in the matter of prices for light and power, not only for city purposes but for all commer cial purposes as well. We are will ing, in addition to paying the entire cost of your city plant, to accept a franchise protecting the rates and to make a contract for the City's light ing at a much lower price than you are now paying lbs city ulajat. Tp T that end, we submit you the follow- ing proposition: ,- , . 1. -We will purchase your plant t and pay therefor the exact cost of-! the same, shown by an audit of the City's books, made by public accoun tants, either by all cash or by assum ing the bonded Indebtedness given for the purchase of your plant as part payment, with all interest to accure thereon, secured in a manner satis factory to the city and the balance of the purchase money In cash. 2. We will make a contract with the City to furnish its public arc lighting, using the same type of lamp that the city is now using, of the same power, at a reduction of ten dollars per light per annum from the price now charged by the city plant furnish the same lamp for sixty-five dollars per light per annum, the con tract to be for any term of years designated by the proper authorities. 3. We will agree that the net rato charged consumers who pay their bills when due shall never exceed tho following schedule. Rates for lighting, per month, not to exceed: For the first 50 K. V. S cents per K. W.; For the next 50 K. W. 7 cents per K. W.; i For the next 50 K. W. 6 cents per K. W.; For the next 50 K. W. 5 cents per K. W.; For all above 200 K. W. 4 cents per K. W.: It being agreed that each consumer shall pay a minimum bill of fifty cents per month. Rates for power, per month, not to exceed : For the first 200 K. W. 5 cents per K. W.; For the next 300 K. W. 4 cents per K. W.; For the next 500 K. W. 3 centa per K. ; For all over 1000 K. W. 2 cents per K. W. ; . 4. We will guarantee that, at the expiration- or. eacn term or ten years, this rate may - be reduced (not increased) to meet r the State of Indiana nearest In pop ulation to the City of Richmond, hv ' the last preceding general census, so that the maximum rate charged citizens of. Richmond shall not be greater than the average rate charged for similar service In said ten cities. 5. We will agree that the forego ing proposition may be embodied in contracts and franchises prepared to the mutual satisfaction of the parties, with proper safeguards to the City and its citizens, and w;ui such other reasonable modifications as may be desired by the City. 6. We will agree that, If this prop osition be accepted and the sale of the plant ordered, upon the foregoing terms, or with such modifications as may be agreed upon, all of thia pro-. position may be included as a con- " anion in me ordinances provide! for the sale of the plant; that we will accept a franchise with the conditions hereinbefore . set forth incorporated therein and will give a bond in the sum of Twenty-five Thousand Dollars, executed by some approval surety company, conditioned that we will complete the purchase and accept the franchises, ordinances and contracts then agreed upon between the City , and'ourselves before r-e sale Is con summated. . " 7. We make the foregoing propos-v it ion in absolute crood faith and will' be very glad to have our representa tive . meet you and exchange views with you on the situation at an early date. We make this proposition at this time for the reason that the ques-' tion of expending Forty Thousand Dollars additional money on the city ...111 1 a 1 a M ft. v ..... 4XV UHtO we feel that the fairness of our pro- position in rates, both for city light ing and power and to consumers, and the price offered for the plant will,' cause every thinking citizen or your desired having been fully accomplish ed, better results in the future can be gained. by disposing of the plant and securing yourselves than by tak ing any chance of an "additional out lay and loss to the City in the de preciation of the plant. 8. We desire this proposition to be thoroughly canvassed, and state that there are.no evasions or deceptions in' the same, and that we are not tech nical in making this proposition. Neither members of Council nor citi zens need look into the same for any thing hidden or concealed, but take it' as a straightforward proposition and one in whose dalls the City's rights can be absolcely protected in the, future, bjrcotractB and franchises - J t i i r . . . . ... l which can -we suommea io me peopie. for ratification before being acted up- Respectfm.y submitted.
