"The present bylaw is being submit- ted to the voters of the city that they -nid-v pass on certain amendments A-hieh'-have been made in the fran- chise which was granted to the Cal- gary Natural Gas Co.: In July, 1910. These amendments are being asked for by the company which now holds the franchise, and which is at pres- ent engaged in building a between the flora's at Bow Island 'and'the city of Calgary, tapping all the towns and cities intervening. The chief point of contention'Is-on the matter of prices. The CalgaTy Natural .Gas Co. was given a fran- chise toT distribute natural gas in the city of Letbbridgo by Augus't 1, 1913, at 15 cents per thousand feet Tor manufacturing purposes, and 2o cents per thousand feet far 'domestic pur- poses.- The Canada-Western Natural Gas, Light, Heat and.Power. Company .which now holds the main- tain that these prices are so low as to make it impracticable for them to distribute natural'gas in LcMibrldge at thiae rates. They come to the city, asking that a new bylaw amending the and in- serting instead tvventj cents lor manufacturing purposes and thirty- "five cents for domestic purposes, be submitted to the. ratepayers, the. cost of submitting the bjlaw to be borne by the company. f In return for granting these higher rates the cttj is iccelve certain concessions 'not granted in the old bjlaw In the first which was granted bj a large majority the city had practicalli no con'rol the streets and lanes which'' vvm tot used by the company in distributing gas within the city limits.
