We iMkd been paying them �s high, and hitaiber, wages, than any other .varl. ia'the woat. The men �vont out because we were going to use a ton o( Gait coal we had iwught at the high line, in the boiler. Over two mmitta) ago we had op:k.'ix>d thrqe carlpads. of coal from Pabor, but hod only received one carload. Then we had an order with the Barnes mine to giive us all the coal' t'hoy could, but �ro� couM not get enough to run the kilns, As you know, you muat Itave coal to; run a knin, and i( the flro gooa out from lack of coal, the brick is ruined." ~ The Brick Co. state ibey will hot yioW to (he. men. They are not going to-be diotatod ito as to whait coal wed to onklress a few words to our ratei>a.vors, at the risk of being termed a generator of more gas. Thnie of our most estimable legol firms have presented to our representatives, t'hc aldermen, applications for the securing of an e.xclusive gas franchise. That natural ga� oxis'ts hero was positively demonstrated some years ago, and from the good repute en-ilo.ved by Mr. Conyfccai'e, Mr.' Johnstone and Mr. Sininicns, we must (roncitide I'hat tlieir i-tevcral clients arc men of uijriou!�Ud resp,,.nsib'ility and businoss acumen. These men, 'then, are i'oa'dy to spend money io discover if gas" exists in paying and serviceable quantity, and such discovery can 'be mode at an expenditure of not more than four thousand dollars. As I am not representing any exclusive frondiise corporation, I am free to advocate what I doom to be in -the best interests of the ratepayers of this city, and that. Mr. Editor, is nMmicipal ownership. I am aware 'that, to many, this is not acceptable, but I suhmit that in Ca-nad'ian cities '^therc it has 'been given a fair trial, an iiitdouUtMl benefit, to the ratepayers has ihecn the resitit. Some of our present aldermen were loitd in e.xpressing their a'dherence to this principle when seeking our support; now is thetr opportunity to put their convictions of thoit time in practice. Ijet us ma'te the neces-sar.v expenditure on discox'er.v for this splcfKiid asset ourselves, and if found, let the city ratefmyers own it. |,run it, and get every i|)enefit there is in it. jAit there lie no franchise to any private corporation.
