Work of Installing Gas
Plant Starts Tomorrow
DR. A. L. BEATIE.
Dr. A. L. Beatie, owner of the gaa
franchise In tbia city, haa closed a
deal with a large acetylene firm to
begin the Installation of the plant.

The system will be Installed In
units, and wilt be extended to all
parts of tba city a soon aa poasible.
It will probably be necessary to bava
two generating plants on the hill and
two or more In the business section.
The flow of gaa will be measured by

Tbe calcium carbide light. It la aald.
baa many advantages over the ordin
ary gaa light. The fumea are harm
lens and tbe light la more brilliant.
It more nearly resembles sunlight
than any other artificial lllumlnanU
About 400 towna In Middle Western
slates are lighted by thla process, and
It haa been found .satisfactory ln all
respects. The same light la need by
the Government in Its lighthouses
where the best results must be ob
tained. Dr. Beatte announced Saturday
night that only residents of Oregon
City would be interested in the flnan-:
clal aide of tbe enterprise. Capitalists
In- varloua large cities have been
anxioua to finance tbe business, but
Dr. Beatie feels that only local capi
tal ahould be employed. He has had
offers of enough capital to build five
plants such aa would be needed In
this city. The systenv-to be employed
la known- aa "gravity system." A
miniature plant will be exhibited at
the SUta Fair and residents of Ore
gon City are urged to Inspect It.
- Drr Beatie promised when her was
granted tha franchise, that be would
install the plant as soon aa possible,
and his decision to begin work at
once proves hla sincerity.

crease In traffic. Better results are
obtained when the streets are not

ment. Another carload of oil" Is ex
pected to arrive today.
