EOT LOT ON
Passage of the resolutions directing
City Atty. Veb!rt to fil- complaints
heforo the Indiana public service com
mission, to secure a lower rate of gas
from the Northern Indiana Gas &.
FAv t r i o., ;tnd a lower rate of clec
trieity from the Indiana & MW-higan
FJe trie Co.. were tho chief exciting
features of tho council session Mon
day night. Ii. S. Walters, general
manager of tho pa? company, and
John A. Yeagley, its attorney.- were
present with a request to the council
to withhold action temporarily as to
that institution, promising a, probable
compromise rate in tho course of a
month, but without assurance as to
what tho compromise would amount
to, tho councilmcn declined to wait.
General Manager "Walters explained
to tho council that he had secured a
promiso frooi b-adlnp directors of his
company to consider a compromise
rate at thir annual meeting in I'hil
;uto!phla. next w eek, which he plans to
attend. 1L want? to go thither and
plead with tho director for a friend
ly udjustment. and not be hampered
hy evidence of antagonism on tho part
of the city, such an the resolution to
refer to tho utility commission would
Foem to Imply, He stated that ho had
placed a. proposition before "his people,
hnt when Councilman Goebel asked
what tho proposition was, no positive
unswer was forthcoming".
Atty. Yeasley. addressing tijo coun
cil, explained that it would cost be
tween 525,000 and $30,000 to make
Mich an investigation of the gas com
pany as the resolution calls for, and
ihat the city is taking a chanco on
liavlng tho rate9 Increased rather than
reduced, or if reduced cvt all, proba
bly not to any such extent n-s the
company may ho willing to reduce
them of Its own accord. Ho told of
how rates had recently been increas
ed in Toledo by tho Ohio utility com
mission, of how the Dm Moines fipht
is turning out unfavorable to the city
and gave a number of other instances.
"It is not to escape investigation, " he
said, "but to evade, tho expense of tho
action, both to you and to gas con
sumers, that we arc taking this
course.'
Vote T Unanimous.
Pres. Ting and Councilmen Uoech
nr. Seifert ird Gcebel spoko in favor
of passage of tho resolution, and the
vote was unanimous. Pres. Lang ex
plained that the gas. company made no
effort to bo heard at the committeo
meeting Tuesday night when asked to
attend. Councilman l?uechner called
attention to a gas resolution that was
up a couple years ago, eliciting some
kind of proposition from tho compa
ny, hut the directors in the east fell
down on it. There was no one pres
ent to oppose the resolution with ref
erence to electricity. Tho Indiana. &
Michigan appears to have decided to
meet the cmestion before tho commis
sion without further parley. It will
cost about the same as the gas case.
Although Clerk Jlostiser reported
from the committee in the "hole," fa
voritism for tho passage of an ordi
nance providing for a woman on the
police force, tho ordinance itself when
presented was referred back to the
"hole" for further consideration. The
ordinance states that the salary of the
policewoman shall bo $600 a year, and
appropriates $4 00 from the general to
the police fund to caro for the bal
ance of 1314.
"Want Ln1oratory Ordinance.
An ordinance r.aa also received,
parsed second reading, and referred
to the committee, confirming a con
tract between tho board of health and
the South 3nd Medical Laboratory,
for the use of the medical laboratory
in the work of tho department. The
contract coll.- for an exoenditure of
? 1,12 5 a year. This is an arrangement
that ?eey. Charled Boenbury has been
working for since entering office, and
the board is invited to attend tho com
mittee meeting next week for a hear
ing.
The only other matter to come up
was City Controller Manning's report,
aid a petition from John Ott, and
fight others, to name the, alley run
ning east from Carroll ft. to Vistula
v., between "Way no and Division sts.,
Wilson court. The controller' report
shows 5150,r6?.0; on hand Feb. 1;
.collections for Feh. to be $S2,S67.43;
i!i.sbur3'mrnLF, S7S.53 4.05, and a bal
ance of cash on hand, $104,702.43.

A request for tho installation of a
ventilating system in the city court
room where dozens are forced to
congregate almost every week-day
morning in a stilling atmosphere has
been made of the board of public
works by City Judge Herbert D. War
ner and City Clerk Harvey F. Jlostis
er. It is remarked that as the warm
days approach, a condition even
worse than in former vears. is likelv
to result, leaving an impression upon I
the victims of arrest, bound to face
justice there, that is not altogether
uplifting.
Although the reouest was made pre
vious to Tuesday's session of the
board, the matter was not taken up,
hut will probably bo investigated
during' tho coming week, and refer
ence made to the city engineer. About
all the board did Tuesday was to con
sider proposed improvements in sun
dry parts of tho city. A public hear
ing will bo held Tuesday night with
regad to tho giading and paving of
Cedar and Dayton sts., and Pennsyl
vania av. Opposition to the proposed
Improvements on the latter street
promises to bring out a largo attend
ance.
A proposed addition to the city was
submitted to tho hoard, taking in
ground at Webster and Perry av.,
and the city engineer is directed to
see that tho proposed bluo prints
conform to city designs. Some
changes are to be made as the laj'out
of streets, etc., before the addition
will bo accepted.
