other causes may force the company to meet its obligations by increasing tho price He said ho dd not think thin was likely but in order to protect the company it was necessary to make this provision in the franchise The meeting Monday evnning waa a quiet one Mr Daly stated the proposition and was wiling to make any reasonable concessions that the council asked The original franchise offered to Akron antt Canton wna valid for ton years It was asked that Jt terminate at ttie end of nine md onehalf years thus expiring In the spring of the year This same privilege was granted in the local franchise City SolicHor Kratsch ask ed if any reduction could be made when gas was used In public build ings Mr Daly questioned tho legal ity of such a proceeding saying he thought that It might be questioned is to whether the company was not discriminating In its franchise Ho said ho would rather have the taxes raised to offset a reduction in tha price That question will be decided before the ordinance is submitted to the council In the original franchise It was stat ed that if a dispute arose at tho end of the nine and onehalf years ami the gas company decided to Kave the cMT thirty days notice would have to be given Or if the city wanted the company to leave the same length of time waa to be allow ed it to vacate Councilman Browne well asked that the time br Increased to sixty lays
