It is hard to tell just what the sity's electric light plant has cost. !n a general way we know that it cost much more than first estimates. Much cash, including the money real- zed from the sale of the Forest mill 5roperty, has gone into the plant. It s paid for, however, and it promises to be more than self-sustaining after allowing liberally for interest on the .nvestment. In conversation wlih Councilman Ha&tery this morning he said that he had read Mr. Dolan's communication Carefully and was surprised that he should intimate that the Democratic members uf the present council were In any way opposed to this public enterprise. "We are not opposed to it," be said, out are willing to aid in every way possible in making it a success. What we want Is that the affairs of that public institution shall be conducted openly and above-board. We are willing to vote to purchase additional machinery for the plant, but we want to know what the needs are that we may vote Intelligently. We believe that machinery of such capacity should be put in that further changes will not be necessary Ipr some time to come." "What do you think of the earning capacity of the plant?" "If the figures given out by Mr. Dolan and the electric light committee .are correct, the plant ought to now be paying Into the city treasury $20,000 per year In excess of operating expenses, If there are nine thousand lights supplied private consumers and these lights are burned one hour per day at one cent per hour, the receipts per day should be 190.00 or 82,700 per month. This should bring into the treasury from this source 132,400 per year. Putting the operating expenses at 112,000 per year—the figures named by Mr. Dolan—and there should remain $20,000 to go into the general funds of the city and this sum should be used to lessen city taxes to that .extent. This is the reason the Democrotic members of the council voted against the tax levy recently adopted by the council. la view of the large sums derived from the earnings of the electric light plant and from liquor licenses, It would seem that a deeper cut than 2 cents on the $100 should have been made in the general fund levy." "You may say that the Democratic members of the council are just-as anxious to make the electric light plant a success as Mr. Dolan is." Annual Autumn and General SALE NOW GOING ON.
