CITY MAY PRODUCE GAS
St. Johns Will Consider Municipal
After discussing the pending- gas
franchises last night for nearly two
hours the St. Johns Council again post
poned final action, this time until the
. meeting of August 13. Mayor Couch
was desirous of securing- some action
last night and even suggested that all
three franchises be granted, but this
did not meet with approval of the
Council. Before the regular session the
members held a long caucus in the
committee room on a proposition sub
mitted by Councilman A. R. Jobes that
. the pity erect a plant and. supply . its
own- ge if - It be -found- practicable.
That this was the subject Of the con
sultation came out in the open session
when Mr. Jobes suggested that the city
might do this under the charter. There
was no discussion of the subject.
Councilman King- said that all the
franchises contained good points and
some features that were objectionable.
The franchises are asked by James
Steel, F. L. Purse and S. D. Davldorf.
Davidorf proposes to establish a plant
that will cost $35,000, the cost to be
J1.45 a thousand feet and to be re
duced as the gas consumption in
creases. The first year 2o0 is to be
paid the city. The franchise is to run
25 years. The James Steel franchise
offers heating- gas for 75 cents a thou
Councilman Jobes nag studied the
question closely and Is inclined to think
the city can erect and operate Its own
plant," and this matter will be consid
ered along with the franchises. The
Council is moving slowly for the rea
son the matter is important and it does
not want to make any mistakes.
A proposition to oil the principal
streets of St. Johns was received last
night and taken under consideration.
