The story is of two girls, one of whom chooses domestic life, and the other a lite ot another kind. The girl who goes out into the world soon wants to come back, but finds out the terrible mistoke she has made. Commissioner Freeman is concerned regarding tlio campaign on the part of the natural gas company to induce merchants and others to Instal gas for lighting purposes. A couple of biislnesM men have replaced their electric lights with gas lights within the past tew days and others are known to be contemplating such a move. The commissioner brought the ones tlon to the attention of the council tills morning. He said tbe campaign was beginning to look serious and something would have to bo done. If I many more business firms follow the lead of those who have already Installed gas, the sale of electric current will fall off to such an extent that i)rlcuK will have to be raised or the electric lighting department go , through the year with a deficit, which I will have to be made up by general taxation. The following resolution was therefore offered by Commissioner Freeman: "That In view of the fact that an eiicri;(:tlc campaign Is being made to lndi;co merchants to Instal gas for lighting and that several ot the business men are now using gas, and others are contemplating its use, and whereas the time will come, if citizens (latronlze this form of lighting when either the price of electricity will have to be increased or the deficit In the electric department will have to he I made up by Increased taxation, and whereas, an Increase in cost of electricity means an increase in cost of water and Increase in cost ot operating the street railway, as well as an Increase in the cost ot power, It can be shown that the extensive use of gas for lighting purposes may soon become a burden instead of an economy, be It therefore "Resolved, that immediate steps be taken with a view to eliminating this menace to the city's public utilities." The matter was referred to City Solicitor Ball for a report as to the legal aspect of the situation.
