A we anticipated, thefranchi-rf for pulling in gas in Las Vegas ha been gi-mitcd inul llio roll tract let. Ilun. P. A. Fi-ko. asattorncy fori). II. Irland appeared be lore the. board of count y commissioners on Mondaj evening and made application for u t'raii'rlHt. and the commissioners tak ing tin? matter under advisement postponed definite action till yester day forenoon, and just before noon' the franchise was grunted and digued Jy the commissioners. Tho follow ing are the conditions under which it was granted: That from and after the 16th day of pd fluiber, 1880 nniil the lull and com plete expiration of fifty years, the said L.m Vegas (as and Coke Com pany shall have, uud it iS hereby granted, the privilege and right to erect, maintain and operate aP build ings, n.ttcldnery and other works which are, or muy be necessary, for ihe manufacture and distribution of illumiuating gas within the limits of the town of LasVegas audits suburbs in the county of San Migue, and ter ritory ol New Mexico; to lay gas main and pipe under and along any and all the streets ol said town and its sub urbs, lor the purpose of distributing said gas throughout said town anil its suburbs, and to sell said gas to all per- is, bodies and corporations desir ing to jiurchuse cud use the same. That the said company shall have,aud is hereby gran'ed, the privilege and license to sell and dispose of, as it may deem lit, the coke, coal-tar, naplha and oilier products of gas maim bid urc, aud generally that the said company shall have all rights and privileges subject to the restrictions of these articles, and the said order necessary for the proper and success ful prosecution of the business of mukiiig, distributings and selling illu mimling ;ras in the town ot Las Ve gas aud its suburbs. And for and' in consideration of the premises and the foregoing promises, covenants and agreements entered into ou the part, of ot the said board of county commiss ioners, the said Las Vegas C5as and Coke Company, parly of the second part, doth hereby promise, covenant and agree to, aud with the 6aid board of county commissioners, party of the first pari, as follows, to wit: "That Ihe said company will not charge the said town ot Las Vegas nor any per son, body or corporation more that three dollars ($3.) per thousand cubic feet for illuminating gas; that within lour months ot the dale hereof, tho said company will commence actual operation, within the said town of Las Vegas for t ho construction of the necessary works for tho purpose of inauulacturing illuminating gas: that on or before t lie Ihirty-lirst dav of .July, 1881, the said company will have at least one mile or more of dis tributing gas main or pipe laid in the said town of I as Vegas ami its sub urb, ready tor use, from the point or place where the said gas is manufac tured, and will be ready to lurhish such gas along the line of said main or pipe to the town of Las Vegas, aud all persons, bodies and corporations desiring to purchase and use the same; that within a reasonable time there after the said company will lay pipe, distribute and sell gas on nuy ai, d all the streets respectively of said town of, Las Vegas, so far as there may be any reasonable demand for such gas on said streets or any of them; and that the said compauv will at all times 'furnish a lull and sufficient supply of gas ot not less than sixteen candle power io meet the demand thereof, un!es prevented bv accident. or other minc beyond its control. A meeting of the Las Vegas Gas and Coke Company was immediately called and ihe contract let to 1). II. Irland, J. Iioscnwald Esq., the presi dent ot I he company and T. F. Chap man, secretary signing, and delivering it to Mr. Irland's representative. The stipulations under which it was let were, that the covenants of the fran chise should be kept and it was furth er exacted that work should bo com ineucd within three months from y est erday. Mr. Irland agrees to build theworks and take stock in payment, but will dispose of his stock to such citizens as can be of service in forwarding the work of introducing gas and other wise making the project a success. This offer is considered better than his first offer, for alter visiting Vegas and looking over the town, he came i o 4 Iii conclusion that there .as here u tar better opportunity for making a success of tho scheme than in Santa Fe, and ho was so well pleased that he changed his offer (to put in half the money requisite) aud agreed to build it himself. There can be no doubt of its success judging from Ihe experience of the company in Santa Fe where Ihe stock was readily gobbled up by a large syndicate and is now held at fifty per cent advance. This same syndicate r-t.ind ready to lake our stock if an opportunity is afforded it. Mr. Irland has had considerable ex perience in this business and has al ready puf in forty-four systems, lie proposes lo build works etc., to the capacity of thirty-live thousand cubic feet per day, w hich will bo sufficient for Vegas for a number ol years, even if she develop as fast as her mot san- j guiñe citi7.cn anticipate. Tho works 1 arc to be identically the same a are; now so successfully operating in San ia Fe. lie will begin at once to ship machinery to this city aud gather ma terial, whicji can easily be brought forward. This in fact is the only really difficult pari of the undertak ing, for with everything at baud the ! the work can be rushed ahead, In I Santa Fe lie w as delayed nearly three weeks waiting for one car load of material which was necessary before the works could be started up anil it was then secured outy after an outlay of over $200 in telegrams and much diplomacy with railway officials. Iu au interview with a representa tive of the Gazkttk, Mr. Irland stat ed that he confidently expected to have the works in good running or der by the first ttf J uup, and by the middle of the month at furthest. This was, providing thai he secured the contract at once, and, as he has met with no delay, we shall expect to see the work completed at least a month before tho limit set by the con tract. Tho county commissioners deserve great credit for the provisions for protection imposed in the franchise for the benefit of our citizens. At first sight, it might appear thai they had aided in setting up a monopoly, by granting the gas company the ex clusive right to cont rol the manufac ture of illumiuating gas for the period of fifty years. But if it be a monopo ly, it is oue of the fairest monopolies that was ever built up, for the condi tions under which it is established are the fairest than can be imagined. First: tho works must be built be fore July 31st., which precludes all possibility of dallying on the part of the company, and gives us the imme diate benefits to come from the intro duction of gaj Had no limit been fixed the company might have waited till it chose, to. create a greater de mand for it, and in ike its introduc tion conditional to its securing a cor tain number of subscribers. Second: JNot moro tlian sa per thousand cubic feet can be charged for gas. It is only necessary to com pare this sum with the price chat god in other cities. In Denver, for in stance, the price is higher, and the same in San" Francisco, Washington and the majority of eastern cities, and is only twenty-five cents more than 4 charged in St. Louis, a point where the price of coal is very reasonable. Then, too, it. must bo bor o hi mind that much of the necessary expense. incident to the msiiutacturc ot gas, is no greater in largo cities than it is in small places. Third: the gas must, be of good quality aud not less than sixteen can dle power. In this connection, it may be slate., that iu Santa Fe, where this same condition was imposed, Ihe company is furnishing about tweuty candle power, and Trinidad coal can bo made lo yield twcntv-lwu caudle power. The principal advantages of gas arc that it is much cheaper than coal oil and far inore convenient, to say nothing of the greater brilliancy of tho light and1 is far better toread or work by. It is less dangerous than coal oil, which is shown bv the fact that insurance companies will deduct twenty-five per cent from rates on houses lighted by gas, from the sanu houses lighted by coal oil, especially Irani" houses such as we have in Las Vegas. It is presumed that there will be more consumers of gas in this city than in Santa Fc and, whereas, they expected about six hundred' stibscrb ers they already have nearly twice that number. All in all, we have reason to bo proud of the step thus taken, and Las Vegas is gradually taking lo herself the privileges of a metrópolis. Itnilwny Circus. The amicable relations, that ' ave thus far been reciprocated by the of ficers of the Southet n Pacific, and the Santa Fe it. It. companies are tempo rarily broken ofj in consequence of a speck of a war cloud that has arisen. The former road m .do the first Mirvey through Florita Pass but the Santa Fe road secured tho rigid of wuy over this same course. The Santa Fe men commenced breaking ground over their course when they were onleed to desist by the chief of construction of the Southern Pacific. Chief Engi neer Itobinson scut forward a party ol men with orders to stand their ground, when a detachment of Chiua meu were put into the gap by the S. P. As everything is in favor of the Santa Fe road.it is more than likely that "the Chinese must go.'' It is not considered anything else than a lilllo exhibition of spunk that sober second thought will tide over,-as (here is plenty enough room for both roads to lay track through tho pass. The Santa Ke road has added eight hundred freight cars and fifiv ocomotives to its rolling stock. Local Items. --lion. E. A.
