A LIGHT SUBJECT.
WHAT WOULD B A TAIK MtC FOR OAK?
Since gal i a commodity with which
newspaper men aro iuppotod to bo entire
ly familiar, the public would tcarcoly ox
cuse us should wo fall to discuss tho fact
that have been given promlncnco by tho
refusal of the city to continue tho old con
tract with tho ga company, and tho re
fusal of Iho company, or their agent, to ,
continue tho supply of gas. It was
manifestly, tho purpose of tho city coun
cil to notify the gas company that, inas
much as city scrip rates very nearly at
par, the city did not desire to continue a
contract madt upon the basis of scrip at
CO or C6 centi. Tie "agent of tho com
pany, giving the resolutions of the coun
cil a" literal construction, concluded that
the city would not pay for any more gas
until a new cSntract wa entered into, put
dowstjbe gate, and shrouded the city in
darkness, for ono night only.'
The hoavv oxpense' attending tho light
ing o? tho city by gas ($4.60 per month
per burner) has stimulated inquiry as to
the original coat of the article , the com
parative cost of coal oil light, etc. It has
been ascertained that Pittsburg coal can
be delivered at tho gas works here for
bout $4.40 per ton. Ono pound of coal
will produce four cublo feet of gas. Thi
is equivalent to 8,000 cubic feet to tho
A correspondent of tho Pittsburg iW,
peaking of the cost of gas, assumes that
tho coke and tar will moro than pay tho
oxponse attending the process of purifica
tion ; and that the cost of placing tho gas
n the bolder need not exceed $2.50 per
8,000 feet, if, then, we allow a loss of so
per cent, to cover leakage nnd condensa
tion (which tho Posf regards as oxtrava-
eantly high), wo can very closely approx
imato to tho cost involvod in tho produc
tion of gas In Cairo
Ono ton of coal delivered ft 40
Placing gas In holdor 2 50
Total cost fC 00
Allowing that the loss, as above stated,
amounts to 30 per cent, we havo hero, the
sum of tc.90 as tho cott of 5,600 feet or
gas in the gat-ometer about $1.20 por
i:o00 cubic feet.
A ttreot lamp using a five foet burner,
will If pushed a little, use 1,600 feet per
month. Tho cost of this amount at $1.20
ner m. would bo S 1.80. To this sum ad-
the cost of lighting, the wear and tear on
machinery, and repairing, say f 1.00 per
month, and wo have the total cot of each
lamp with a five foot burner brought
down to $2.80 per month.
When we remember that gat companies
do not expect to make any -profit out of
their public patronage hare no fault to
find with tho council, for waking a discon
tinuance of a contract under which thoy
wero paying $4.50 for a quantity of light
that should be, and most probably will be
furnished at $3.00. If "figures will not
lie," fie gas company will then realize at
least . small profit and,the city will save
at a corresponding rate.
