The Chairman: 1 will state this meeting was called for tonighr by agreement with Mr. Harlow from whom I received a letter on June n;. requeetlag that he be given permls slon to appear before the oomu You have had all the papera whl erence to our actlons and prooet and our recommendations to Council, and tho matter was referred back to us for a consultatlon with you, for which we are here tonight. We to make a report on next Tu< night, the 24th, and we are here ti listen to you, to know what you ean do in referenee to helpiag us make tbis report. Mr. Harlow: I understand that ln this hearing by agreemenl between the committee and the attorney lor the Alexandria Electric Compan; are to have a BtenographtC copy ol the eridenee, the company, of co paying for Ita copy. There was miannderstandlng witb regard to oar gettlng a copy of the teatimony taken prevlously. The Chalrman: You ware fm i ed with printed copiea of the teatir mony. Mr. Harlow: We only received tbe teatimony on'the day tha eommittei reported to Council, and I nndei in my converaatlon with tbe commit? tee a few day- ago tliat tbe I grapber would take the teatl and give us the report. or | OOpj ol ii. i would like to bave thal under standing with. the commltb The Cliairinan: You want ? COPJ of the atenographer'a raporl ol meeting tonight? Mr. Harlow: Yes, sir. I pn of course. tbal most of this teatlmon] will be teatimony of our wltneaa Tbe Chairman: Is it the wish oi the Committee thal a copy be rarnJab ed to the company? Mr. Hill: Yes, sir. Mr. Spinks: Certainly, so far (U I am concerned. Mr. Harlow: You will recall that I wrote to the committee and req ed thal thay polnl oul the facts upon which their report of defectlve aer wa based. ! understand that it la ihe deslre of the committee to ad just. if poselble, the dlfferencea be? tween the City council and the andria Electric Company, If there ar. any, and it is almost impo. ihi'i anleaa we can have a working baaia. if the committee will fnrniab us with a list of the specific defecta tbal exlat, thal is tbe defecta ahlch they thir.k have m far been proven, are Will take that ap with the com mittee and endeavor to adjuat It. We deaire to have your advlce as to what, in the opinion of the comfl as shown hy the evidence they hav taken, are the defecta which ihould in the opinion of the committee be ad justed. The Chairman: I would like to ?tate tbal you are not furnlabtag us with proper lights. Your lamp not working properly. Last night we had three lamps out on two blocks al one time. On the corner of King and Royal Street tbe lamp had to be down and another one put Up. 1 things are occurring every night. Tim lampa are said to he sluggish: I don't know what is the matter with them. That is for you ro find out Mr. Harlow: 1 understand tbal yonr view of the situation is, I gather this from tbe teatimony thal baa taken before thia thal the system as a system has been changed. and tbal ii ta all right, hut the di conhlal ln tha behavlor of the lampa The Chairman: We don't can what kind of a plant you have, get the lamps and the light. Mr. Harlow: I understand thal the difficulty seems to be in tbe behavlor of the lamps, and tbe lamps seetn to be sluggish. I would like to a.-l, y.m whether (he committee found any other defecti than that some of tbe lampa did not coatlnnoaaly lighl thal the lamps were sluggish. The Chairman: What more do you want than that? Mr. Harlow: There was some con alderable diacuaaion In the teatimony with regard to the amperage of the lamps, and also witb regard to wheth? er tbe plant was capal.le of giving the city proper light and at the same time lighiing the aaborba The Chairmat:: I don't think tbe capacity of tha plant la ln rjui Tiie lamps are not perfonning their duty. Mr. Harlow: I understand tbal the princJpal defecta and the oul feel is that the lamps are not giving proper light? rt te Chairman: That'a the trouble. Mr. Spinks: 1 would !ike t that tbe contentlon of this comml has nfever been that tbe lamps a seven and one-half ampere lam| that they were nol the proper lampa to givo the servlce thal such lamps could give, bat our contract in 00 puv e ? tatea aaythiag about aad one-half ampere lamps or six and six-tenths ampere lampa The con? tract says that the company must fur Ut wi'h an up-to-date lai l] enclosed alternating lamp of candle power Our COBtentloa been that tbough the lamp i have been B seven and one-half am pere lamp. it was not a two tbousand candle power lamp. and we have aever accepted the lamp as being sat isfactory or as fulfilling tbe requlre ments of th? contract. Mr. Hill: 1 have beard a grc,. of talk that this committee was not rary friendly to the Alexandria I tric Light Company. that we wanted to throw some obstacle in its way. II is false. From the beginning to tbe end this commi: Bdljr to tbe Alexandria Electric Light Company. They could stop all this argument and trouble, and we have it from a very reliable source, that if you peo? ple would spend a little money for a proper lamp that would give a proper light, that that would stop all this controveray. I know positlvely that it can be done. You have it in the contraet what should be done, and all you have to do is to carry out the ut. and lhat ends the trouble, and I don't think anybody will say that It cannot be done. Mr. Harlow: If I may be permltted to sa> jnsi a word in reply, I want to bat thia company is now and has always been rnorc than willing to livr np io its contraet with the city, and lf Mr. Hill or any other member of the committee arill produee proof which will ahow that :n law the present lamp d . ith the contraet reejalrementa, we will be willing to pal i:i such a limp as will nieet with requirementa If Mr. Hill has any n-siimony of exper. To the effect that in law ?he preaent lamp does not iu.-.i wiii. iiu' reqniremeate of tii" contraet, aM uny other lamp will do so. wa will be glad io hetr it. v.. hai i noi understood and Wt <l thia contraet re qntrea aa i<> glr* 1,000 candle p oo Boeh lamp mai taa be ahown thal our laanp doee noi ;iiir< ? rnenta and speelficatlons we will one that will.

Mr. Spinks: That is ihe same lamp that we have today. There is the recommendatioa made by your con siilting engineer to your company. 1: the present lamp was not a Batlafac lory lamp and if a better lamp could he pnrchaeed as la recommeaded an see ;!ia' ihore must be wrong. \Ye don't even admit rhat the other lamp Mr. !'? 11 r would have been satisfac we don't know whether it would or not.

Tha: m What Ke said then, but il never was done. Mr. Harlow: What is the date of that report? Mr. Spinks: I don't know. but no new lamps have ever been put ln since that recommendation was made. Mr. Harlow: I desirc to call your attention to two facts: Tha' tbal ra port of Mr. Betts' must have made after the contract was enl into with the city, and tbal Mr. I If has t.-siiiied that I have b.en . Dtirely changed aJace that report was made. He tbought that these lamps could not now be coneld U a Fori Wayne lamp 11 that the whole raslde of tbe UUB] i.een changed, aad tbal it could not be considen-d as the same lamp, and f herefore Mr. Fisher (interriiptingi: Mr. has never atated tbal the whole Inaide bad been ehani Mr. Harlow: He said tbe reeom niendations with regard t" chaagaa in the lampa bad been car rie.l out, and (hat they could not. tberefore, be eoaaidared as Fort Wayne lamps. Mr. Fisher: Does the committee understand Mr. Harlow to say that tbe lampa aoa here are not Fon Wayne lamps? Mr. Harlow: No, sir; they an Fort Wayne lamp improved as recom? mended i.y the city'a expert, Mr. Spinks: I aaked Mr. I (reading): if you bad tbe purchas lng of tboae lamps if you would not have adopted some other lamp ihan the Fort Wityne lamp. You don't know what tbe present company has done anytbing al all, Mr. Bette, do you? Mr. Bette: Weller h:is nol anytbing ao far a i know. i don'l understand thal Weller haa done any? tbing. He has heen trying to stand ground tbal it la all right. Mr. Bplnfc i: That was his reply, thal Weller was trying to stand OU the ground tbat it was all right. II the n ^ of Mr. p. tta' answer i read? ing): I think Kirby is mistaken in saylng that tbe carreul waa kept down, beeauae i doal tblak that VVIcker would do II for him, but then I don't know who is on at the plant .1,1.
