Points Out Desirability of a Water Gas Plant—City Should Not Lose Plant. j The follow ing communication from | Mayor i buries < Schmidt on the all important gas question Is self rxplan- | utory. and is worthy the careful con sideration of every resident of the ;ity: T.. tin- f.ut.»r • r Hi.- it t.lt g.n.»> Since thi- action of council at its net ting on March L’s on the question of the rehabilitation of the gas works plant, the situation lias been clarified with respect to the use of natural gas for iilutnin.iting purposes in place of Hie artificial produce. The new conditions that have arisen encour age me to insist on the original pro position the reorganization of the gas works along the lines suggested by the Joint committee, namely. Hie Installation of a water gas system. This plan, as you know, was endorsed by the I’lrst branch of council by a comfortable majority, but failed of passage by the Second branch by only a small margin. The subject still re mains a live question though the ac tion of the Second branch in referring the matter to the Board of fontrol with instructions to secure bids for the sale of natural gas to the city. No Bids Submitted There have been no bids of thn* character submitted to the board On the contrary the only proposition IS (OUR CHILD A harmless, pleasant little wafer will bring quick relief.

These developments. It strikes me. have simplified conditions and ought tu suggest the Immediate rehabilita tion of the gas works along the lines suggested in my message to the city council and advocated through pub lic utterances in the dally press; and I reiterate them now In asking that the gas plant be saved to the city, as the only protection we have against the probable monopoly of the illumination of the city bv the' natural gas Interests. This will eventually ensue should the gas plant be aban doned or allowed to further deterior ate. The natural gas Interests need no plant for the distribution of their product, and therefore have no con cern as to the proftosetl abandonment by the city of Its establishment. How important, then, u should be to pre serve the gas plant against a day when the citizens of Wheeling might lie helpless und.tr the control of the situation by the nut unit gas com panics. I do not think I can be too earnest in urging the absolute necessity of the rehabilitation of the gns plant. The proposition. T know, is subjected it. peculiar prejudices in certain quar ters. but mv only nltl and hope, with out a particle of personal or selfish interest, is to preserve to the city an institution that. In mv judgment. It " III be in dire need of should it ever be its misfortune to lose it. Will Reduce Price. There have been some reckless statements made In the newspapers about the gas works, which, even In Its present crippled condition, is pav ing Its way. Kor Instance, one con tributor has said that lie is opposed to the rehabilitation of the gas plant because he doesn’t want to continue to pay 7.r. cents for rotten gnsif that was to lie the result of Hie |>ro pt.se,l reorganization of the works 1 would drop the whole matter in an instant. Hut the purfH.se of the re habilitation of th- plant is to give this very complainant, and every other consumer, a brighter and better illumlnaut at a lower price, probably equal to the boasted cheapness of natural gas. anil save him and others In the years to come rrom the pro liable extortions of a monopoly. Another writer for the press sng g.-sts that til- present scheme for preserving the gas plant Is nothing more than to provide more places for political favorltles. an asylum for T\ar<! workers and "henlors.” A mu** must be desperate. Indeed, when such arguments have to be resorted to Such a contention mav catch the tin thinking and irresponsible voter, but If certainly can make no impression on Mi.- reasonable-minded or the we|||n. formed citizen. However. I am able to state that with the rehabilitation «>f the plant established, and the wat. r g.is system installed the works will be operated with fewer employes than nr- now required, resulting in a more economic administration of til • affnirs or the plant. Certainty vs. Uncertainty. In conclusion. I wish to impress these facts on the people of Wheel lnK There has been no offer of the sale of natural gas made to the Hoard of t ontrol. and that a former sugges tion fo sale of gas has been with | drawn, rite question now is, shall ’J1''- i;:'" Hart he abandoned or al low- ,l lapse decay, or shall It be rejuvenated and reorganized with money air. ,-idv vot.-.l f,.r .....i __ V" “'I 'hat the people of Wheeling will Hitt.IV* he assured of an unfnll It.g supply of an lllmnlnant. brighter and hatter than natural gas. nod at a price ;■« low. and. probable in tf»e> future, lower.
