PAUL GLOBE, SUNDAY, MARCH 18, UHH). ii iiiii mil MANHATTAN 1,I(;11T, HKAT AXIJ POWER COMPANY WAKTS TO BPRBAD FIELD LIMITED AT PRESENT it Want* tii<> Council to Give it (lie KIrIiI to Erxtemd Us Wires and Pipe*. The Manhattan Light, Heat and Power Company of St. Paul Is now In the Reid asking- tor a privilege which would Seem to be i>t" material benefit to the company anu residents of the city. The circum stances which brought the new corpora tion into, at present, partial competition with the St. Paul Gas Light company are as follows: Five years ago in April the Manhattan building, at Fifth and Robert street.-, passed into the hands of Smhh .<: Taylor, who have long boon Identified with real estate Interests in St. Paul. At first, t>r the accommodation of their own building, the firm placed therein an electric light plant of quite extensive proportions. Not long afterwards they b.-gan accommodat ing neighboring blocks across the streets :iot only with light, but heat from the ex hausi steam of the pant. To do this le gally, however, it became necessary to s - cure permission from,, the city council. rk"ni^ limited franchise gave them the privilege of supplying six blocks b tunded by Third, Jackson, Sixth and Minneso ta Streets. Smith & Taylor then increased the ca pacity of their plant to the extent of $ •">. em or $40,000. This is now in operation and giving the best of satisfaction to its patrons. Two months ago the Manhattan Light. and Power company was Incorporated, with a capita! of $1,000,000, with 1- 1.. C Brooks as president and A. Wilford Zahn manager. It was in the case of this appli cation for incorporation that Attorney General Douglas decided that the Man hattan company was a manufacturing concern. Application for a franchise giv ing the new corporation the same privi lege enjoyed by the Old company was made to the city council. A resolution to that effect was passed unanimously in that branch of the municipal legislature. The application is now pending in the as sembly, and has been referred to the c >m mittee on streets of that body. Three hundred customers are now be ing supplied by the new company. From outside the district to which it is now confined there are many applications for !).),h light and heat. It is conceded by many that within the narrow limits in which the Manhattan Light, Heat and Power company now operates light la fur nished 7M per cent cheaper than it is by the old company to consumers on the out side- of these limits. It is due to the new corporation to say that arc lights are new furnished within the prescribed tenitory of the Manhattan company by both con cerns for $60.50 per annum. Outside of these limitations the price is $142, and in some sections of the city $14.") per annum. It is at once apparent that the Manhattan company can, unless it should be granted equal terms with the older corporation, b3 forced out of the field entirely. It is quite easy to reduce prices in a small section of territory for a special purpose, and when competition is done away with, ro- Btore them again. When the Manhattan concern entered the small Held againsr the SI. Paul Gas Light company, all busi ness houses in that section enjoyed the benefit of its enterprise. It Is to extend this benefit to the entire city that the .Manhattan now asks the city council fjr a franchise. The company has recently added ma terially to its plant in the way of new machinery, including a large generator and the finest switchboard this side of Chicago. By disposing of its exhaust steam the new company has been enab'ed to reduce- prices for lighting. It has supplied the neighbors in the six blocks mentioned by simply crossing the streets with conduits to the adjoining buildings and from these to other blocks wi.hout tearing up the streets longitudinally. It dees not ask to do this in its application for a franchise, where there is asphalt pavement. It simply desires that no more restraint be placed upon its oper ations than Is now placed on that of its competitor. While the older corporation makes the claim that by using water power from Apple river it can reduce prices for light, the Manhattan can meet all such compe tition by the sale of its exhaust steam. The company, in fact, was enabled the first year of its operations to save more than enough to its patrons to offset a 5 per cent gross Income tax. So soon as the franchise is granted nearly $50,000 will immediately be invested in machinery necessary to increase the capacity of the plant. Every business house in the city can be accommodated with light at the greatly reduced figures charged by the Manhattan company. It is, therefore, urged by advocates of the new corporation, many of whom have voluntarily petitioned the board of al dermen and assembly to grant the fran chise, that a great saving in the price of illumination is offered by a thoroughly reliable corporation, a home company comprising home men whose interests are and have been for many years in the city of St. Paul. On favorable action by the council work will be commenced and completed within six months' time. At present the com pany is considerably hampered in its work of extension, even In the prescibed territory of six blocks. Before it cait cross a street to perfect a connection U is necessary for it to secure a permit by resolution of the council and submit plans and specifications for the approval of the city enginpe'". Such restrictions are not placed on the old company arid the new one asks only for equal priv ilege?. In Minneapolis there is a new c >m pany seeking the same privilege asked by the Manhattan. It is the Interna tional Electric company, with headquar ters in the Lumber Exchange building. Its opponent is the General Klec'ric com pany, operated by water power from th Mississippi river. And yet the new com pany successfully competes with the old one and has greatly reduced the cost of illumination to the consumer. The Manhattan was the first to Intro duce in St. Paul the "enclosed type" of ' arc light, which burns 100 hours. The \ old company has adopted the idea and is i now experimenting with it with i view i of introducing it In city lighting. Tin first one in use in S(. Paul was it place of Adam Decker, on Jackson street, and was placed there by the Man hattan company and is a success. It i can supply them whenever wanted if granted the franchise prayed for. In the Manhattan building the new company will be centrally located and enabled to reach all patrons in the city.
