THE LIGHT CONTRACT
CHANGED ONCE MORE
Mr. Humphrey fit Last Night's
Meeting of Select Council Had Or
dinance Reconsideied nnd the Con
tracts for City Building and Hose
Houses Changed to Three Years
The oft-debuted lighting contracts foi
.he city building nnd the two hose
houses was subjected to nnothcr
change. The latest levlslon liui 10
sultctl In making the contracts for a
pcilod of Unco jenis each, Instead of
live for the hose houses and three for
the oily building.
It was at ti special meeting of select
council thai the modifications took
plat e. After the meeting opened, Mr.
Muiphy moved to leconsldor the
amendment of Monday night last, when
on his motion, the oidlnancc awarding
the contract for lighting the city
building to the Cntbondale Gas com
pany was chnngtd ftom one year to
three 1'ears, and the ordinance giving
thccontiact for lllumlnntlng the hose
Itouses was" made to lead fle yens,
were so amended. Mi. Humphiei's
teason for the change was for the pin -post
of saving the city the dlfCei elite
between a shoit and long contiact.
Hocct, theie Is considerable oppo
sition In councils against a long term
contiact. Mi. Ilumphiey, In the mean
time becume aw aie of this, and not
dcslious of ctlirltig up that opposition,
he mucd for .1 reconsldeiatlon, sub
stituting the changes as set fotth In
the opening paiagiaph of this nitlcle.
The electilc light contiactois changed
to tin ee jeais, so us lo bo uniform
with the one for gas coveting the city
Mi. Mannlon entcssed himself as
being unaltciably opposed to any con
tiact that would lead foi moie than
one jeai. Such a contiact would op
ciate ag.ilnst municipal ownership. If
such a movement be m.ide in the mean
time; and for this teuton he could not
consistently be In f.ivot of long ton
tiatts slnte It was municipal ow net ship
platfoitn that he was le-eletted on last
The oidinances were changed as
moed foi by Mr. Ilumphiey, and weie
given to committee. The tommittep
lepoited fjvoi.ibly foithwith and or
dered them to be piinted.
The changed oidinances will be la
piint by tonight and will be pissed
on lust leading at another meeting of
select council. They will be passed
llnally at a meeting to be held on Mon
day cenlng, and will then go to com
