"1 can tell you of people found dead in their beds In the morning bo cause when the pressure went down In the night the little flame left was blown out, and when the pressure came up again In the morning there was no llamo left to consume tho poibonous fumes. And I can tell you of Coroners' juries Invariably report ing these us deaths from natural causes. Dr. Berg was followed bv A. .1. Iiunnliigliain who also attacked tho propohed changes.

A large number of complaints wore directed against tlio Kings County Lighting Company, in Hay Itidge. Hath Ilcach and norougli Park, Hrooklyn. Many persons testified to waiting nioro than an hour to boll water, and one man said. "We ought to treat the gas com panies as the felons who sell shott weight are treated.
