Today 13, of these stations are in active operation in various parts of the city. Two were put in operation last year. Four station hare already been erected this year or are now in process of erection throughout the city, and it ia understood that there is a possibility that still another may be erected before the end of the year. Of the 1 3 station now in operation, the Standard Oil company has nine, the Sinclair Refining company two, and the Red Fox Petroleum company two. These axe located in widely separated part of the dty, and have proved to be 4 great convenience to the people of the residential district. The people' attitude on the subject is said to have - changed completely, tnd they are reported to be in general satisfied with the operation of the station and the results obtaind through thm. The gain in the amount of gasoline distributed through these stations i said to be very marked, indeed. It is estimated that from 500 to 1,000 gallons of .gasoline are distributed each day through these stations. Of the) new stations erected thi year, the Standard Oil company has just completed one at the corner of Broadway and Beaver street, and that company is now erecting one at the corner of Washington and Ewini streets.
