Foregoing advertisements havo answered the
question when it was explained that a gas company
must continously seek and invest new capital year
after year in order to serve tho public adequately and
efficiently; further, that new capital cannot bo ob
tained for necessary enlargements and extensions
with only a few years remaining of the existing
There is a vast difference between an ordinary
mercantile and manufacturing business ' and a gas
Tho gas company is subject to regulation be
cause it is conducted as a monopoly, whereas tho
merchant or manufacturer is not subject to regu
lation. Tho gas company delivers its product
UNDER THE STREETS, while tho merchant
delivers his UPON the streets. The firBt named
turns his capital over several times a year, while a
Bervice company takes in an amount equal to its
capital investment only once in four to six years,
and-is compelled to invest more and more capital
each year to meet publio requirements.
The fact that a gas company is compelled to lay
pipes' under the streets of a city, and thereby has to
have a 'franchise, is no fault of the corporation.
SERVICE CANNOT BE RENDERED OTHER
WISE. Using the streets for gas mains is putting tho
thoroughfares to broader publio ubo, FOR THE
BENEFIT OF THE PUBLIC.

no fault of its own. It is a fundamental of the busi
ness that one gas company, with one set of managers,
manufacturing establishments and system of mains,
can render bettor and cheaper service to a single
community than two companies, each with only half
of the business, with twice the investment and twice
the fixed charges.
President Wilson, in addressing the students, of
the University of California prior to his election,
"Public service corporations are, in a very inter
esting sense, natural monopolies. They generally
use the pieces of land and the roads and highways'
which are most convenient for their purpose, and
most direct for effecting the communication which
they wish to effect; and it is perfectly obvious -that
if other companies are allowed to compete with them
there is a very wasteful duplication in outlay: and
equipment, so that competition generally results, in
an eventual combination of the competing compan
ies, and the necessity to charge a price on what they
supply that will pay the interest on twice as great
an investment as was really necessary for one
The franchise which will be voted upon August'
19th, ib NOT exclusive and will not? prevent OmtJha
from granting a similar franchise to others, should
it see fit to do so. i
The facts that the Gas Company is a necessary
monopoly, and that it has to use the Btreets, do not
confer unusual earning power.
The proposed franchise in itself is valueless, but
it may be possible for PROGRESSIVE, ECONOMIC
OAL and EFFICIENT MANAGEMENT, operating
under its provisions, to earn a small rate of return
on the money actually invested in the gas property;
