McQuigg .. , .. , 0 u . , -e bt, t)e(j Up wating for 8-inch G HAS a gas well nowr he agrees to drill another as soon as it ran be (lone starting within possibly 30 days after the granting of the franchise. He has made rates that are fair, less than are being allowed other cities by the Util ities commission; he agrees to make an investment in a distributing system which will be valuless should he ad vance the rates to the point where it is unprofitable to use gas; it is up to him to protect his investment to drill other wells should these show signs of failing. Aside from the essential points we can see no argument which would af fect the proposition. One objection is that McQuigg has no gas. Even if this were so, it would not.be so serious an objection. When a franchise was let to the Liberal Light Ice and Power Company, the company did not own a foot of pro perty in the city and did not give ser vice until a plant could be built and casing which will be set at about 2500 feet. The drill has been running in brown shale, changing into lime. A little water showing vup Saturday brought the decision to set 8-inch in order to avoid any trouble from water that might cause caving in open hole. The American is informed that the log is everything that the operators could wish in a wild cat well,- short of oil angas. j DEATHS VALVE-IN-HEAD Buick MOTOR CARS More Facts You Should Know!
