Dear 8ira Your editorial Thoso
Gas Franchises of December 12tb is
timely and should havo tho thought
fui consideration of not only our city
fathers but every citizen of Palestino
having its future progress tho com
fort and wellbeing of nor people at
heart Palestine wants and actually
needs GAS of the kind tbat can be
UTILIZED both for fuel and as an 11
lumlnant We havo had for some
time the OTHER kind and it seems to
increase the nearer wo approach the
realization of our necessities Why
You assert tbat competition is a good
thing when it does not DESTROY and
ia this declaration every DISINTER
ESTED thinking and intelligent citi
zen agrees with yon
There is room iu growing Palestine
for an electric light and power plant
and also for an independent gas plant
One will stimulate tho other to bettor
service and isuro reasonable aud fair
prices which both are cntitlod to and
should have in order to live and give
the best obtainable results
About two j ears ago a company
represented by ono Mr Williams of
Chicago visited this city with the in
tention of securingxa franchise for
supplying Palestine with gas Two
visits were made by Mr Williams with
this object in viow but the idea was
abandoned for the apparent reason
that capital could not then be suffi
ciently interested However from
that date two years ago to this the
individuals comprising tho momber
ship of the Chicago company have had
amplo knowledge of the needs of our
city Tho writer has personal knowl
edge of the Chicago company for hari
took a deep Interest in the lnvestiga
tion at the time and aided eomowh
hhelraisiroct8v
since applied
During the present year tho Fedoral
Gas company through their represen
tative Mr McGoIdrick have been
persistent applicants for a gas fran
chise through our city council and
4 knowing the great advantages that
would accrno to our people not alono
iu dollars and cents but what is more
to the point in health comfort and
happiness tho writer has given con
siderable time seconding their efforts
to secure the privileges asked for of
1 our board of aldermen
Now tho fuel and illuminant fur
nislicd by tho Fedoral company has
been thoroughly tried and testod Our
committee to Texarkana an honest
i intelligent and capable ono havo
mado their report privato lnvestiga
tions from a thoroughly rollablo and
responsible source proves conclusive
I ly to the writers mind and asido from J
I the splendid report of Messrs Oztnent
I and Grant that tho Fedoral Gas is the
i superior of any othor that has stood
rx > tho t08tof tmo and ev ° ry consumer
yy OAT T7
C Xv O JLjLJLly j Is not only satisfied but takes pleasure
in testifying to tho cheapness and ex
I cellenco of tho gas both for fuel and
as an illuminant
A franchise has boon granted the
Fedoral Companv two othor appli
cations aro now befnro our city coun
cil If they aro granted tho question
is not will wo get tho BEST gas but
will wo get any gas at all
Wo havo given Mr McGoIdrick a
franchiso now givo him a CHANCE
and not tho knifo
Competition is a good thing when
it does not destroy Two gas com
panies cannot llvo in this town If
thoro Is a man in Palestino who will
put a fow thousands nay hundreds
into a gas plant hero with the knowl
edge that there may or will bo two lot i
him Bpesk out If thero aro those1
outside of Palestine who would do so j
why were they so late in applying
when thoy might havo bad a cliar
field and no competition
1 Tho writer is not financially inter
ested in any gas franchise He does
not want nor does he expect to own
stocks or bonds in any gas company
but for tho sako of his family and his
foflow citizons he does want to see a
fuel and illuminant gaB plant in Pales
tine and that soon and as ho has said
beforo our Board of Trade on several
occasions If it is to be had in no other
way bo stands ready to donate out
right two hundred and fifty dollars to
secaro what wo want what wo need
and what wo should have had long
ago and by tho tow line of tho Her
ald and tho help of our worthy city j
council what wo are going to have
