V ? $ PUBLIC HEARING ON CITY LIGHTING QUESTION TONIGHT fCONTIXUi:i) FROM VAdK ONE.) sion. aking a review of the local lighting situation, and a readjustment f local rates both for municipal light ing and to private consumer. Coun cilman RIce in a lengthy address, championing the petition and remon strance, tried to have, the ordinance confirming the contract tabled until alter the, commission had been given opportunity to act. His motion, however, failed and the public li earing on the ordinance and remonstrance Is the one that will be taken up at the executive; session Tues day night. Councilman J lice also made, a plea, in which he wa-s hacked by Councilman Fink and Jiuechner, in favor of a municipal light distributing plant which he asserted could be in Mailed at an expense of approximate ly jsj.ooo. This $3 4,000 on the basis of his es timate would cover ) miles of streets. 10 lamps to the mile, or f00 lamps, of w hich two miles would be underground and 5S miles overhead wiring. The total expense of th underground in htallation, he figures, would run $7,000 a mile, and the overhead installation $70 0- a mile. City Kneineer iMoore, however, points out that the proportion of underground to overhead wiring, under tho present ordinance, would run not les.q than l" miles of the for Jiior to C5 miles of tho latter, which, according to the councilman's own estimates per mile would bring the cost of tho plant up to approximately 5139.900. Tho proposition of the councilman not to have a. generating plant, but to buy the current of tho Indiana & Michigan nt wholesale, rates, and the city distribute tho current itself, game as is now done in MUhawaka, it is claimed, at a considerable saving to the city. City JMant ImiossiIlc. Liwyers acquainted with the public utilities law aro taking the position on tho other hand that a municipal distributing p.nt for outh Hend is impossible as iong a.s the Indiana & Michigan Is equipped to furnish tho city lleht, and stands ready to furnish fmch light at rates which the utilities commission may deem reasonable. The purpose of the commission, it is asserted, is to preserve U the util ity company its monopoly a.s long as It will serve the public at such rea sonable rates as leaves but a reason able return on. actual investment nd physical property. When the com pany refuses to do that, or is unable to do it, the commission an compel it to sell out to the city at n price which the commission will fix. It Ls also maintained that so far as citv lighting ls concerned, there is nothing before the commission for consideration until a contract has ac tually been entered into. At present there: is only a contract in contempla tion, and It is claimed that a hearing on that question would be like trying a moot case in court, which is ery con trary to the rules of practice. The commission on the present pe tition can consider the question of rates to private consumers for there the rate, by implied contract, ad mitted to exist, but the only contract "with tho city is the old one. executed nin years before the public utility law was enacted, and this, the lawyers say. carries obligations beyond the power of the commission to impair. The hearing ordinance promises to . call out a considerable sprinkling of interested parlies after which the council will probably take the matter up farther in secret and virtually de cide what they will do with it when it comes up for linn! or third reading next Monday evening. OIMHCTS TO INCItHASi:. To the Editor of the News-Times and the Hoard of Public Safety: 1 s e in the papers that the city iirenx n demand more pay. Now its all right for a man to take all he can get, but I think it Is unjust what They want, and when the board of uiifety ;cts on It so they should remember that a whole lot of taxpayers who must pay the present price have to -work for a good deal less than they et. The writer has never mad" $50 a month and still he has saved so much that his tax s last year was 2'1Z, and he has lived good, yes, even he drinks beer, and still has saved that much. There are hundreds, yes, yes, more than that of taxpayers In South Hend who never made even $40 per month on the average, and these firemen are not satisfied with $1,300, $l,3ee, $1,000. $&G0. $900 a year, and besides this they i?et all their street car fares, free smokes now and then, ar.d when they get old there is a renslon fund for them. If any facte ry In outh Ilend pays a salary of $1000 a year he must be a foreman. Some times their work Is certainly not pleasant but they have many days when they have not a thing to do. As soon as the board of safety gives the liremen more then conies the police men, and say should they not have It? They must be out every night, no mat ter how the weather is. and there I? not so many assistant chiefs, captains nnd lieutenants who want' J1.S00, $1,500, $1,200. $1,080, $1,020 a year.
