Now, in view of these facts, aad as an act of justice to the tax*payers and the citizens gen erally, the undersigned would respectfully ask your honor and the city councils, to use all honorable means to induce Congress to graat a charter to the " Peoples' Oas Light Company" which guarantees to farnish gas at this reduced price, which will prove a saving to the cor poratlon alone of thousands of dollars. Tour honor will observe that the undersign, ed, the proposed corporators of this Company, are reliable and well known citiaens, and every way responsible peculiarly and otherwise for the faithful fulfillment of all they promise. [Signed?Thomas Lewis, L. Clephane, D. C. Forney, J. W. Thompson, Saml. Fowler, and J. C. McKelden.J -Mr. If. D. Lamer introduced the following bills, which were pasted: To continue brick centrts of gutter or west side of Btb, between K and N streets; to take up and relay gutter on M street, from 6th to 7th streets; to lay flag foot-way on south side of N street, across 4th street w< st; to grade and gravel Ridge street Mr. C. Wilson introduced the following: Be it resolved, That there be appointed a joint special committee of three members of the Heard of Aldermen, and four members of the Board of Common Council be appointed by^the respective presidents thereof, whose duty it shall be to ask and urge Congress for authority toerablethe Corporation to own and manage coal gas works for the manufacture of all gas required and consumed in the city of Wash ington, under the following restrictions: 1. To be authorized to issue bonds, not ex ceeding f 600,000 in amount, at a rate of interest not exceeding six per cent., for the purchase and erection of works until the present pas light company are offered a fair and just price lor all of their present works and fixtures, to be determined by arbitrators mutually chosen. 2. The title of all the property to be vested in fourteen trustees and their successors, two frcm each of the present wards, to be appoint ed by the Mayor, by and with the advice of the Board of Aldermen, and those first ap pointed to hold their positions severally from one to fcuiteen years; all vacancies occurring by death or resignation to be filled by the re maining trustees. 3. Gas to be- furnished to the Government at 82 50 per thousand feet, without deduction; to private consumers at S3 per thousand, with 10 per cent discount for prompt payment, if paid Within five days lifer the rendition of tho bill 4. iill corporation lamps to ba furnished with pas without taxation or cost to property bor dering on the street lighted. Mr. Wilson said be introduced this resolution to harmonize all difficulties, the committees on the District being sick ol the conflicting peti tions for charters of ga? companies; and as there was but little dcubtbut that large profits were to be made from gas, It was proper that our citizens should reap the benefits of the profits. If Congress would ac*opt these sug gestions and the Corporation takes hold of the matter, over ten thousand dollars could be saved annually in lighting the Corporation lr,mps. He had heard two ot our citizens say that they would pay the interest on the bouds for one-half the profits. Mr. Shepherd expressed his hearty concur rence in tlie resolution, except as to that por tion locking to the purchase ot the present gas company's works. The gas mains would tankrupt any company, being in a leaky con dition; indeed, a person could not go two squares without smelling gas, and if a pick is struck into the street the ground is found sat urated with gas. The cause of the pompany endeavoring to increase the price is that they have lost and are losing by leakage of mains from 25 to 33 per cent, of their gas. He argue J against fixing the price of gas at S3 when it could be furnished for less. Mr. N. D. Lamer thought the wisest course to pursue was to go right to work. If we wait two weeks, by that time some private company moving to get a charter of Congress will suc ceed, and the purpose of this bill be defeated. Mr. M. Lamer was also in favor of prompt action in the matter. If a private company was te get the charter he was satisfied the citi zens would be no better off than they are now; especially if the company whose petition was being carried around the streets should suc ceed. The names of some of the parties in that company were not calculated to inspire confidence on the part of the community. Mr. Ellis moved to strike ont all the resolu tion relating to restrictions as to pri:e, Ac. Mr. C. Wilson argued that the resolution in that shape would be imperfect, and moved that the clause asking authority for the Corporation to issue bonds be inserted; which amendment was accepted by Mr. Ellis. Mr. Shepherd offered the following a? a sub stitute, but afterwards consented to offer it as an independent resolution: Resolved dc., That we respectfully protest against any increase in the rates now d iid for gas in the city of Washington, and do" hereby request Congress to give the city power to establish gas works, or to grant a charter to such company as propose to furnish gas at S2..50 per thousand feet. The resolution of Mr. Wilson, as amended by Mr. Ellis, was adopted; and the resolution of Mr. Shepherd, after being amended, on motion of Mr. N. D. Lamer, by the insertion of a pro viso that nothing shall be construed as an indorsement of or a request for a charter lor any private company now applying, was also adopted. Mr. Shepherd reported a resolution providing for the appointment of a committee of two members of each Board, in conjunction with the Mayor, to wait on Congress and ask power to iesue bonds, bearing six per cent. Interest, to the amount of *150,000, for the purpose of erect ing a new Center market-house upon the Bite of the present market-house, with the under standing that the revenue arising therefrom shall be applied to the redemption of the bonds wbich was passed. Mr. Ellis asked that the committee on the fire department be discharged from the considera tion of the petition of D. D. Foley la reference to a fire ladder, liischarged. The following were reported and passed: ? Bill for work done on K street bridge, (from the improvements committee;) to take np and reset fire-plugs, (drainage committee:) to defray expenses incurred in Introducing water in the Northern Market, and bill making appropria tion for the improvement of the Northern Mar ket, (market committee;) to purchase500 feet of hose for the Franklin Fire Company, (commit tee on fire department.) *u Mr. Baub offered a resolution instructing the committee on wharves to inquire whether the wharf now building between tfthand7thstreets does not obstruct the channel. Passed. The bill providing for the removal of cinders and coal ashes was taken up as the special order, and after some discussion was laid over. [1 he bill provides that all persons occupyiog buildings shall keep vessels for the reception of cinders and coal aehes under a penalty of from one to three dollars. No cinders or ashes shall be thrown Into any street or alley, but delivered to the ash gatherers under a penalty ot not less than ten dollars. The commission ers of improvement shall employ carts to re move all cinders and coal aehes from dwellings and places of business, (blacksmith, machine and similar shops exceoted,) who shall visit every dwelling daily from October 1st to April let, and remove all cinders, Ac. The cinder* and ashes are to be kept in such places as the waTd commissioners may direct, and any per son failing to comply with his requirements shall be subject to a fine of not less than one nor more than three dollars. Any collector of cin ders or coal ashes who shall unload his cart at any place than that designated by the com missioners shall be subject to a penalty of ten dollars. The expenses are to be paid from the respective ward funds.] Mr. Shepherd, from the committee of confer ence on the bill to Increase the salaried of teach ers iu the public schools, made a report, which was adopted. [The particulars are stated ia Aldermen's proceedings.] The bill from the Board of Aldermen provi ding for the immediate vaccination of persona throughout the city, was taken op, when Mr. Shedd proposed to strike out all part of the bill requiring persons to renew vac cination every five years. He thought the five year system a humbug. Dr. Miller had ex pressed the opinion that where a person was onge well vaccinated, he was safe. He moved that the bill be referred to the committee on police, with a view that the opinion of the medical fraternity might be obtained. There THE WEEKLY STAR.
