operated at their fullest capacity l
during ths entlr< twclv?> months of the f

Industries that began to use natural, f
;ras on account of th-? nrice of coal' f
advancing from two hundred and fif'> .,
to five hundred percent of its former j

I wl?h to say here hid the price of
rr.tural vis advanced along with tinprice
of coal Here would have been
comparatively little rhortage during ,
the winter of 1917 and 191*
This Increased demand for Indus- '
trial Oa? has not been to the liking i '
of the gas companies which had Its '
protected wells shut In In vergin tcr- ] e
ritory to be used for future domestic]
rervicp The land owners were paid ( *
their royalties for these wells from : '
which no gis was taken, pipe lines in 1
many instances were miles away.

In the transporting of natural gas j i
difficulties arise similar to transport , t
iue other commodities. We are affect ; t
ed to a eertaln extent by condtions. j
All the railroads during the extreme f
cold weather are practically at a stand still
and are unable to move either J
passengers traffic, or freight trains 11
on any regular schedules.
Industries are frequently closed 1
down on account of the railroads be- *
Ing unable to delircr their materials,]'
which are he'd up in a blizzard o. '
blocked hv a snow drift. This Is takqn
as a matter of course. People under 1
stand it and do not complain. Com- r
patent management adjusts Itself to,)
conditions as they arise. i
When we stop to consider the enor 1
moiia Inr-rposed demands made upon #
the natural gas utilities caused by a a
drop in the temperature of from thirty, f
forty and sometimes fifty degrees, t
with only a few hours notice and 11
never more than from eighteen to j t
twenty four hours. It seems Incompre-1 j
hensible thftt the service Is as good as (
it is. I j
For one degree drop in the tempera- f
ttire means an increase o' three per f
cent In the consumption of gas.
It does n'?t take much figuring to 1 (
show that the increased demand for1
natural gas on a few hours notice runs
from one hundred to one hundred and j
fifty percent. We 1tnow of no business

and domestic consumers to coserve <
and it has been demonstrated to the, t
satisfaction of exports and laymen \ <
that the kind of burners and appll-|t
am os used with proper installation i i:
has everything to do with the amount c
of gas consumed J
It has been shown by testa made In t
one of the Slate Laboratories that r
certain kind of burners properly In-1 c

Natural Gas Is the fuel In the home |;
of the laboring man, in other words in j f
the home where the wife does the1 ?
work, its convenience and cleanliness |
saves her many hours of work and,
drudgery. The family can sleep longer I
in the morning as it is not necessary j
to build a fire and wait half an hour'
for the stove to heat sufficiently to
boil the coffee and cook the breakfast.
This class of consumers should
have preferred service. In other
words, the man who uses gas In his
furnace for heating his bouse, should
be required to burn coal during the ex
tremo cold months, so that those depending
entirely upon gas and require
It for heating and rooking should not
suffer shortage
The cost of producing gas has In
creased. Label has advanced sixty

On Main street most of the house
and stores had water in the basement,
according to report. In several of thi
apartments there, women set oui
buckets, even coming down into of
fices and flats below them where a
better rain spout was situated, asking

The drug stores had a small amount
