Anaconda Standard (Newspaper) - August 13, 1912, Anaconda, Montana THE ANAOONDA STANDARD: TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 13, 1912. 'TUT WHITE W MEETS WITH FUR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE R'EW LIGHTING SYSTEM. ASKS COUNCIL TO PASS IT Engineer and Gcnornl Mutineer HoTiRon of the electric company cxplnln Ilic inn tier to iTCll-nt- tcudoil raoetlnjs. By a unanimous vote, the Butte Chamber of Commerce last night, at a well-attended meeting, adopted the following' approval of the contem- plated improved lighting system in the business districts of the city: "Whereas, Tin- city council has un- der consideration the passage of an ordinance to form a brilliantly-lighted business section under tlie state law regulating the creation ol a special Improvement district of this charac- ter and as the city engineer, who 1ms thoroughly examined the contract for this Illumination proposed by the Butte Electric and Power company, has demonstrated to this meeting that the expense of installation will be only the actual cost incurred by the com- pany subject to his supervision, and that the guaranteed charge for main- tenance nxed at only 5 cents per front foot each month is much less than similar taxes in other cities, includ- ing the trimming, repairing and illuminating. 1 move tlint this chamber record publicly by this resolution its conviction that a lighting plan for the mercantile district is practicable and desirable, that it will markedly enhance property values, that it is a worthy movement for the beautlfica- tion of the city, and that, together with the improvement of our street pavements, it is absolutely required at the present stage of Butte's develop- ment, and that we urge the city ad- ministration to establish the, artistic arid ornamental post arc street lamp system as early as possible, while, at the same time, arranging for na Just a distribution of the tax between the- 'property owners directly interested and citizens generally as the require- ments of the state law will permit." Dlntrlbntion nf The resolution was offered by James H. Rove and was discussed fully before being adopted. City Engineer Paul A. Gow was called in to explain the mat- was contemplated. He said the part included in the improvement district extended practically from Arizona on the east to Idaho on the west, and from Copper on the north to Galena on the south. Park street would get "i'2 of the lights, Broadway 56, Granite street 46, street 28, Montana street 32. Dakota street 16, Alaska street 16, Hamilton street S. Main street 42, street 3fi unit Arizona street 14, a total of lights. The apportionment of cost of installa- tion and maintenance lie gave us: City. 13.44 per cent.; street railway, 11.56 per cent.; abutting property, 7S per cent. The estimated cost of installation was 537.175, and the cost of tnsiinteimiux' n your This would be distrib- uted to the abutting property street railway company and city f2.3Sl.75. The number of arc lights cut out would he 33, for wlik-h the city is now paying making a few dol- lars difference. The engineer as the rate for installation to abutting property and of maintenance 60 cents a year. It would mean placing the wires underground in places and in the alleys in other places. This cost would be paid by the company. In the course of discussion between Jaines H. Rowc and D. Clark, it came out that the actual cost made by the company for service would be 1 cent per kilowatt. This was in reply to the suggestion thr.t San Francisco charges cents per kilowatt. Gen- eral Manager Max Ilcbgcn of the elec- tric light company said that his coin- eern had been requested by the mayor and city engineer to submit, figures on the installation tind of the lights, and he had quoted tlic low- est rate of any place in the country. He said there was an alternative prop- oslt ion by b ich the com puny would do Ihe inytallmg, -and which would re- sult in a alight increase in the cost of maintenance. Manager Hebgcn figures to show what other cities had to pay for similar service, which showed that Rutte would get none the worst of it. His" company had entered Into the matter in a spirit of fairness. He realized that the city wanted the streets cleaned of polos. This would mean a lot of changes for the com- pany. Then after some remarks by John Gillie in fnvor of the new system, the resolution was adopted. Alderman T, J. Nerny, who came in about that time, pledged his support in the coun- cil. He said there were always people in the community who stand in the way of public improvements on ac- count of the outlay of a few dollars. MV.STICKY IN DEATH OP JISHUY SHU A, A MINEK.
