Some Diverse Vlows on the Electric
Liglit Ordinance.
Some Hard Work Being Done
Against Hotter Street Lighting and ,
fur a Bonanza for the Elcctrical |
Company?Light on tho Question.
At seycn o'clock this morning the
polls K ill open anil by six this evening
tho question ol tho ratiilcation of tho
elcctrie light ordinance will be decided
by tho qualified votors of the city.
There has been a good deal said pro
nnd con on tho subject, and yesterday
wen opposed to electric lights unless
bought from tho Wheeling Elcctrical
Company wero working as hard and
spending money as freely as though the
election of a President wero at stake.
Opponents of tho ordinance have
raised money somowhero to pay workers
at tho polls to labor for tho defeat of the
loan to-day. Yesterday men, most of
them interested in the electrical company,
were going about employing men
on salary for tho purpose.
A South Side advocate of decent street
lights has a largo blue print of the
pjan of lighting tho city displayed at his
iront door, with tho words placarded
on it: "Don't stand in your own light."
This lirtrniiin n sort n( lt.iMlc crv with
the friends of better light.".
In anothor place in this morning's
paper is tho resolution on tho subject
of tlin loan adopted by tlio Council. A
member of the Klcctric l.ight CommisBion
recently received tliu following
letter, which explains itself:
Deak Kin:?We liavc your favor of
the 2<th lust., in which you desiro that
we should give you, either for publication
or for personal use, au estimate on
the cost of operation of an elcetric light
plunt of 400 lights of 2,00(1 candlo power
eiich. You desiro that tho ligures
should bo oxnet regarding the wages of
all men necessary, specifying tho amount
lor each man, and rating coal at a cost
of three cents per bushel.
In answer to the foregoing inquiries
we can a talc frcm our experience during
the past ten yonra in the clcctric lighting
business, and in the construction
a?d operation of the largest plants in
tho United States operated under the
Wood system. Wo would say, however,
that there is a marked difference
in the cost of operation of tho various
systems of electric lighting, but the
tacts are not generally known, for the
reason that in system's where the cost
of operation is "exceedingly high, the
first cost of tho plant is oxcee'diilirlv
low, and the purcfimcrs usually conceal
from tho public the cost of operation'
for reasons best known to themselves;
but when probable purchasers go into
the investigation for the purchase of a
plant as large as 400 lights, and costing
as much. money, it is business policy to
enter into the* closest investigation regarding
the questions you have asked.
We have been informed that the
Wheeling Elcctrical Company lias
stated in the public press that tho operation
of this plant will cost$30,000 per
year. To answer the company's representative
on this point we might refer
to a paper published and addressed to
tho honorable Mayor and Council of the
city of Wheeling, W. Va., recently, in
which they state that they are willing
to purchase a plant 01'electric light to
cost from $80,000 to $100,000, and rent
tho same to the city at a cost of $72 o2
por lamp per year, ajui in accordance
w ith their own statement we would observe
that they are willing to do a business
on an investment of $100,000, upon
a profit of S2 48 per light per year.
Without going into the merits or demerits
of their position, it is evident
there is a large sized bug in the stateino.it,
which the following?tho cost of
operation of a plant?would clearly
show the Wheeling Electrical Company.
Perhaps they desire to have tho public
wnnilApfiil aiman nf
Wo will take, to begin, tho cost of labor
1 upon a plant ot the Fort Wavno Wood
apparatus, and if it were desired we'would
be willir.fi to guarantee to tho city our
iigures would be correct.

Total .. ..$13,398
We would also state that tho figures
here given are quite liberal in every department.
and amtriv sufficient to oner
ate this plant.
Now wo will show why tho Wheeling
Electrical Company wore so anxious to
secure the contract at $72 52 pur lamp
per year, providing tho terra ot the contract
should be ten yours, and also with
tho stipulation that the city may have
the option to purchase the plant at tho
end of ten years for $80,000.
You will observe thel$72.C2 per lamp
per year,less operating expenses, $88.49,
would nialio a net profit to tho Wheeling
Electrical Company, in case this
contract were awarded to them, of
nearly $14,000 per year, or 17} per cent
upon'their investment. You will also
observe that their estimate on $SO,OOOis
based, in my opinion, upon two circumstances:
First, they have their laud
and building; second, thoy have their
poles scattered over a largo portion of
the city. And taking into consideration
these two large items thoy could build
u good plant Tor $80,000, oiio very much
superior to the lights tlicy have been
operating in your city, vii., tho West
Illguouau s.vhluiu, niiirn un.i jiiuvuii unsatisfactory
and unreliable in neatly nil
the placcs'that it has been erected.' We
call to mind two places where the apparatus
has been condemned and
thrown out within the iinst monthWarren,
0., and Blairaville, Pa.
In conclusion, we call (o mind thnt
during tho past two months bids were
asked for and submitted to the city of
Wheeling for in electric light plant,
consisting of 400 lamps ami the necessarv
steam plant and construction, and
owing to the largo size of this plant and
the amount of money involved, the
writer believes thnt owing to tho spirit
and competition existing in tho electric
linlit bmiueiii to-dar. voiir committee
I.ivs received proposals for this plant,
and from good people, any of which ran
construct your plant for tho amount of
money thoy have agreed to, but wo heliovo
that the Fort Wavno Company
made tho lowest and bent hi<l, with tho
best apparatus known to tho world today
for street Ushtln*. We would susiwt
to vott, as a member of the committee,
that on behalf of the Fort Wayne
Electric Company, wa would ask your
committee, or as many as could conveniently,
to tto and wspoct our system
now in operation lighting the streets of
Cincinnati with 600 lights, Louisville
720, St. Looii with over 4,000, Detroit
with 1,200, n Urge jwrtion of -Chicago

statement hero Willi submitted yon, as
to cost of operation and the care and
maintenance of this system. Wo aik
tliis In justice to ourselves, and also
suggest that you may employ an? export
electrician to accompany you,
that this investigation may he made
without fear or favor to any ono.
All of which wo respectfully submit
to you as a member of die committee.

A Citizen's Reason for'oppoftltiff tlio Adoption
of the Ordinance.
To the Editor of the Intelligencer:
Sin:?Permit me to say a few words of
j warning to tho eitizons and taxjiuvers
I of the city of Wheeling concerning tne
proposition to be voted on to-morrow.
I I am not a stockholder or in any.manner
interested in the Wheeling Electrical
Coinpuny. I hnvo np# intcofjt or
j prejudico to serve hy'mj'r^jjDsifion to
the ordinance and shall strive to content
myself with the result, if the necessary
three-fifths of th6 vbt?r4. ilfcdido it
necessary and desirable that wo should,
under the circumstances, put upon ourselves
the load of additional debt and
taxation for the purpose of electric
street lighting. ......
The question 8bo?ld be klecidtd !>ysound
common sense and the best possible
judgment, keeping in mind the
very grave and important consideration
of iitiancos? the results that must and
will surely follow. The >Vh<;eling Electrical
Company should~nave\nothing to
do with tfie matter, and it should be
made clear to the public that any effort
to create an impression that it,is a conflict
between that coin pan/and .the pub*
licor the city,is an abort!vffdwjigivoncoivcd
to direct attention from the real
merits and bv prejudico effect what
woulcl naruiv Docomuioreu, u uivosiuu
of the heat tlnis thrown into llio iseuo.
This had shown itself to be a patient,
long suffering communit?evils and
abuses have grown about us until we
are environed by perils greater Ujap wo
suppose. Are wo to continue in this
line? Are we ready to assume the
grave responsibilities involved by further
additions to our public debt?
Are wo to repeat tho experiences not
yet done with, of the new bafin and
bur handsome stone liridge?the one
built beyond tho capacity, ot ourw.Uur
works to rcach, aiiitincapabte bfoctalning
water, even could it 11 pumped to
it; the other, to cost so little, to bo
completed so soon, vet not within the
thinnest shadow ot completion, and
evident to the most obtuse personalia t
tho expenditure will come to nearly
double the original estimate by which
tho public was misled?even now with
a serious question of its stability?.> |
possibility no prudent individual would
assume were he acting for himself.
The voters of the city of; .Wheeling
should understand that the question is
not one of local pride, but local taxation;
that all of these beautiful things I
must be paid for,monuments to remind
us ol our wisilotn or louy. 1 ney snoum
decidewher?aud Iiow tigs ntyaeyshpuld
be expended, riot forgetting Hint good j
streets with poor lights are bettor than
poor streets with good lights; that
plenty of cheap, pure, healthy water is
a blessing onualed.only by.pure and
healthy air, and fir more essential to
the health, contentment and happiness
of a people. The manufacturer, the
banker, the merchant or the real estate '
owner can (lmw upon his reserve or exact
an additional pr^ftfepth which to
pay his growing burden of taxation;
but how with him who labors for bis
all,who, by pinching economyand great
self-denial, lias gathered to himself a
home, although it. may bo ever so
modest? Ilbwis lie-to m'eelHiiSiacreasing
demand, ond from what is he tb'
draw? He can answer for himself. It
means more economv, mora self-denial,
an increased demand upon his savings
or his weekly wages. Ihese of.our people,
they are' many, should as seriously
consider this matter as he who may be
a bloated bondholder.
It matters not wnomor jieiiiuru, i
Moundsvillo, Martin's Ferry or Wegee
has cloctric light. Do wo need it?
Aren't our streets well lighted? Don't
wo want lew tnxos, better and purer
water and fewer jobs? Let us content
ourselves and devote our attention to
bettering those institutions- wo have
and give the masses of tho people something
for their money.
Every citizen should seriously consider
the question of to-morrow upon
its broadest basis, "the greatest good to
thcgroatost number," and express his
convictions by his vote.
Don't let it go by default. Don't rely
upon yolir neighbor and don't be misled
by tho "big man am 1" of any newspaper.
Bear in mind' an 'aflirmativo
vote means increased taxation; that our
four and a half per cent bonds tor
bridge purposes have not been sold,
cannot bo, and that it is proposed to
pay sis per cent on tho electric bonds,
n very little matter, yet a volume in
itself; and don't forget' the "gang" arc
spending money "and' working hard to
foist this job npon us.
"You pays your money and you takes
your choice."

To the Editor of the Intelligencer:
fin:?I tako it that no ono in thia city
is opposed to lighting the streets with
electric light, but thero are many objections
to the plan proposed. It occurs
to me that the proper way to get the
light is ns follows: (iet proposals from
builders of electric light appliances for
furnishing -100 or more arc lights at a
fixed price per monthfor A term of ten
or twenty years, together with a lixed
price at' which the city may at its
option take tho plant nt' tno ^expiration
of any year dnringthe ter4i/\ g
Use all tho profits of tho gas works
for tho pavmcnt of monthly bills for
electric lighting, and invest the surplus
ill city bonds until enough has
been accumulated to pay for the plant.
If the gas works is as profitable an establishment
as we are led to bolieve,
and electric lightine is as cheap
as advocates of the proposed loan would
havous think, we can in this wuv got
our clcctric light at once without issuing
any more bonds, and in a fow years
own tlie plant without taxing any one.

An IxTntLiGHScEE reporter was talking
yesterday to Mr. Hanson E. Waddoll,

what the prospects were for nextseason.
"I think that the reneral glass trade

months," Mr. Waddell replied. "Inour
own Hues the trade has not been
particularly brink lately, except in our
uew patented lamp, which in having a
good snle. We are rushing this ware
oat as fast as possible, with our forco
working day and night. We are short
of stock, however, and when we have
packed and shipped all we have on
hand we will be o,000 lamps short of
orders already liled. As I have 3aid, in
other lines trade has been dull during
the spring, but I attribute this to the
disagreeable weather and bad roods.
The country merchants couldn't get to
town, so t'lio jobbers say, and thie, of
course, has had a great deal to do with
the state of trade.
"When do you intend to start up

"We will begin work August 15. A
Wheeling paper has stated that the
Ifobbs Glass Company will not start up
.tt tbe usual time. I don't know wlicro
they got their information, but so far as
my knowledge goes, we will be turning
out goods at the reghlur time. The
only thing t,hat could possibly delay us
would a failure to settle the wage question,
and I see no reason to anticipate
tmch an event. The glassworkers will
ftbld thoir convention in Steubenvlllc
July 6, after which the two conference
committees will fneet. The men want
to work, and so do the manufacturers,
anil six weeks if surely a long enough
time to, allow them to settle the question.
In our factory wo have only the
or.Knary repairs to make with nothing
to delay us, and I feel sure that on August
15'tlie works will be running again,
with prospect* for a good trade ahead."

""When I was 14 years of ago I bad a sevcro
attack of rheumatism, and after I recovered
had to go on crutches A year later, scrofula,
la the form of wliito swellings, appeared on
various parts of my hody,and foi 11 years I
was an Invalid, being confined to my bed
years. In that thno ten or eleven sores appeared
and broke, causing mo great pain and
suffering. I feared I novcr should get well.

pressed with tho success of this mcdlcino that
I decided to try It. To my great gratification
tho sorc3 soon decreased, and I began to feel
better and In a short time I was up and
