At 17o0 ffCt they are on the Ijevcl of the gas well ot Slodicine Hat and the gns should be struck any time below that level. The summar.v of the negotiations of the committee with Mr. Peat was submitted to the Council as follows: Mr. Peat will go 3,000 feet with 41 in. pi|)e at $10.00 a foot unless he strike primary or granite founda. tion or until it is impossible to put pipe further. That in his opinion the prospects of striking gas are good and sees no difficulty in going down the full 3000 feet. He thinks tnat he will strike gas within 400. or 600 feet.
