TALK OF A
City Hall Men Look for Gas and Elsotrio
Companies to Unite.
ANTICIPATE NO FURTHER COMPETITION
Rash. Wk Makes Several Trips V.mmt,
la Uuoted as Telllnar Reach. .
In city hall circles It Is candidly stated
as a fact that the street lighting fiasco Is
a closed Incident so far as the submission
of competitive bids by the gas and electric
light companies Is concerned. On the other
hand, the report is current in Inner circles
that tha lull In the storm portends an en
tirely new deal with the element of compe
tition eliminated and a clear field for ex
elusive street Illumination by electricity.
Whether this U to be accomplished by a
formal consolidation of the gas and elect! !o
lighting interests, or by a properly safe
guarded understanding, U the question, and
th wlsoacrea lean toward the former
s- hrino, saying that F. A. Nash's two re
cent New York trips were for the purpose
of combining the two corporations.
Before Mr. Nah left for New York on bis
last trip he told the men who were indus
triously trying to greae the way for an
electric monopoly to suspend work until he
returnud. After he got back from the cant
Uie "pluggers" reported for duty and were
told that "everything had been fixed."
Sunday night Mr. Nash will leave for an
other) New York trip. Of course it is given
out that the power canul scheme and Its
financing is the matter that demands his
attention. However, the one or two recent)
conferences which the prudident of the
electric light company held with the presi
dent of the gus company are not taken as
being altogother for the purpose of dis
cussing the powr canal project.
Whether a consolidation of the two com
panies la considered, or whether it has been
tentatively arranged, are matters that are
guarded closely by the principals, and lacts
as to the d uls. If thry have been made,
cannot be obtained. Men clone to the elec
trio light company have given It out as
their conviction, howevrr. that a deal of
the kind Is afoot and practically consum
mated. Ownership of Compaales.
The gas company la owned and con
trolled by Philadelphia!! while the
letUVo light cemfny la uader tha
dal thumb of E. W. Nash, the capitalist
and a brother to F. A. Nash.
The proposition to consolidate the two
lighting companies Is not a new one. It
was under consideration and pressure not
long ago. but fell through and the latest
Nash move to force an electrlo light
monopoly Is believed to have been really a
measure to assist In bringing about this
There la good and sufficient reason, it is
urged, for the Interested concerns to' keep
a "community of interests-' scheme dark
at the preaent tjme. because of the near
election and the possibility that the ques
tion of a municipal electric light and
power plant may be submitted to the
people. Should It become known that tha
gas and electrlo interests had combined
with the Intention of forcing exclusive
electrlo stree; lighting, It is calculated that
the people would be anything but In
decisive in voting for a public plant. Hence
the less commotion over fighting at present
the better for the corporations.
KENNEDY SUESF0R SALARY

Frank A. Kennedy has filed a claim with
the rlty council for $5J9 W) for salary as a
member of the Board of Fire and Police

Kennedy was appointed by Mayor Moores

as to the ultimate right of the mayor or
