The following resolution was adopted by the Duluth republican city convention last week: “We believe that the time has come when this city should commit itself to the work of supplying light for itself and its inhabitants. to the end that we may have the benefit of that cheapness in rates attainable only under municipal ownership, and also that the surplus revenues derived from that operation may aid in extending the water supply to sections of the city otherwise beyond the reach of water supply.” Ah bert Lea, like Duluth and hundreds of other cities, will yet own its own light-
