Tho News was not being treated as other advertising mediums, lie thought the tiction of the Council unjust, Mayor Ualbralth said that tho Sou them Alborto. News had not treated tho city fairly and resented Mr. Fes-senden's insinuation that the council was using Katon methods. Tho News had not givon the council any expla nation of tho unwarranted delay ol about six months in getting out tho special number. Aid. Cunningham mentioned that he had an interest in the question but he thought that tlu Industrial Lothlirldge number was a creditable number suited to advertise the city at any time of tho year. The motion of the Mayor that 975 be paid to the Southern Alberta 90.795.85 News in full of account was carried the loiincil tool the agreement was the company was to bore 1 tit 10 ii et and that the depth reached at the present time was over I It'l) feet. 'The contract with Petit iVi Sons was that if any delay was roused by the Company , the borers were to receive .^'Jo o day. He reminded the council that if casing were ordered at once, it would not be here any too soon. 'The council should take action at one., if it desires to go to a greater depth 'The company was prepared] to make arrangements to drill dvp-| 1 er or to hand the well over to the city. i 'The Electric Comtmny will grant I 'lie use of the present well and if 1 gas is struck, tho original agreement j should obtain and the company lx( bought out. If gns is not struck, the city should pay half the cost of j^hole, namely $5,000 for the use of th.' hole. Knowing circumstances are os dilllciilt, as they are it would lv impossible to get another hole bored tor the same money. The known di-lllculties would cause the expenditure to reach $15,000. If the city does not wish to continue tho boring, it should give the comtmny un exclusive franchise in tho city if they continue the boring and strike gns. What Mr. Eroemun wished to impress upon tho council was tho necessity of immediate action in the matter. Tho engineer said that using the present hole boring could be continued to a depth of 3,0f�) foot. Six inch cusing is now being used and could be used to a depth of 1800 foot after which a four inch pipo would have to bo used. Tho strata at which gas had been struck at Medicine Hat nnd Calgary gave no clue ns to where the gas would bo struck here. Aid. Cunningham asked what the company would take if the city do oidod to go down anothor 400 foot. Mr. Freeman replied that if tho city was prepared to go another 400 feet the cost would be |10 a foot at that depth outside of the cost of piping. -THE- All Alberta preacher was discoursing on the Allvrtn crops, and dealt with his subject scriplerally Ik-hold a sower went forth to' sow, ami when he sowed all I 1 he snieil fell into good ground.
