BOARD IS TO GRANT FRA'CHSE Alderman Dedman Has Amended the Sidewalk Ordinance to Allow City to Give Out Contracts for Their Construction. The Board of Mayor and Aldormen at its adjourned meeting held Thurs day night, a resolution was passed requesting the representatives of Maury county in the legislature to In troduce a bill providing a special form of charter for water, gas and electric light companies, in counties of not more than 40,000 and less than 11,000 in poulation, according to the last federal census, or any subsequent fed eral census. The proposed act has been drawn up by the attorneys tep- rcsentlng the city and the water and light company, and after the pream ble, gives the charter which it de sires to have prescribed. The charter provides for the organization and run ning under one firm name, a coipor ation having for its purpose the fur nishing of electric lights, gas and wa ter, to the people. This charter. Is to apply only to cities located in coun ties having the population above In dicated. George T. Hughes, Sr., one of the attorneys representing the city, af ter drawing up the resolution which was later passed, In connection with attorney W. S. Fleming for the water and light company, stated in a speech that 1 he had approved , the charter which was proposed, and that there were certain sections which he consid ered especially to the benefit of the city. These were the sections which prohibited the company's conducting its plant in such a manner as to re sult in annoyance to the people of the city; that it should construct, main tain machinery sufficient to supply the people and the city with an adequate, full and competent supply of pure and wholesome water, and .plenty of eleo trie light and gas; and that it was not to conduct its affairs in any way to interfere with the police or the of ficers of the city in the discharge of their duties. The board of Mayor and , Aldermen Is to prescribe the condi tlons under which the firm may op- ' erate. The real fight according to ' Mr. Hughes and Mr. Fleming, will come up when the new corporation, acting under the act which they hope to have passed, shall ask the city for a fran- . chise under which they may do busi ness. , A copy of the bill will be furnished to Representatives Galloway and Lips comb and to Senator Brown, who will be requested to push the passage of the measure. , Chairman Chaffln, of the pavement " committee reported to the hoard that they had decided to allow the Cen tury Club and the Elks Club, at their own expense, to construct a crossing over the street in front of the Centu ry Club building on West Seventh.
