Carruthers, who has been appointed Rhodes scholar from Toronto.; .': - . Horse power from the city electric plant at-fifteen dollars or little mote Is not &irch an anomaly after all. When Expert Ross got through with the City Council yesterday afternoon he had shown them that G. W. Green and other local manufacturers who first mooted chaap power from the present plant were not so far out In their calculations as to be ridiculous, And what is bettor, he had shown them that the very best free gar. under boilers can do is to produce steam, not electric power at.fifteen dollars per annum, not for 24 hour days either, but for the ordinary working day. Mr.. Robs did not say much about the advantages of electric power over steam. He did not tell how many lines of industry are adopt-, lag the electric current as a means of driving their plants.. In fact he showed that steam power Is often used in preference to electric. Nevertheless he did show that if the city does wish to sell power at the plant for SIB nev annum, or ait the Industrial site for $20 they would De losing nothing. And when he did so Aid. Loverlng's countenance lighted up with visions of 30,000 population this time next year. The city will make no profit selling electric power at $15 or $20, but at the same time they will not lose anything. . That was the fact which ho established.. And he put a great deal of confidence into the council for the attack to be made immediately on the industrial problem. On his return from his trip around the city with Mr. Reld and Mr. Blan-cuard, Mr. Ross made the following verbal report: (Continued on page 5). Hon.
