Former Resident of t/ethbrklgd Cied on Ocean. Municipal ownership of natural gas was discussed at a meeting ol the Board of Trade last night. AW. Oliver asked for an expression of opinion by the, board, so Unit tbe City Council might know the (cling of the business then, when tho tUHssl-tioii comes up at an early date. He moved, seconded by AM. Robinson that the board ot trade considers it' is in the interest ot the city to put down a well for the purpose ot gating a gas supply and advocates the City Council placing a by-law before the ratepayers (or the purpose of raising money by debentures for this purpose. Mr. Freeman saM he felt ihc l�-lec-trlc light Co. had u proposition better tban the city coukl ffTor. He suggested that tbe Board of Trade Should not take action until all the propositions had been submitted. He said the Electric IJifiltl Co. would dispose of their interests to the citj^tu cost. ltr Barfaed moved that Aid. Oliver's resolution be laM on ho table until next meeting, K. a. Cunningham seconded this. J. Kenny asked if tbe franchise would not have to be submitted t� the city. Mr. Freeman- The Electric Light Co. is not asking (or a fraiv>'.tise. Ald.
