PROPOSED ICE AND GAS PLANT.
MessrsS. I'. Vecker, Designing

^position of ere.-ling, installing
and runningsGasand lee plant

ctssary preliminary arrange
menls.
Mr. Vecker, was templed into
this scheme through our ener-
getic fellow citizen L. G. FJrice"
Esq. whom he accidentally met
in Key West, Fla., last fall and
ever since that time Mr. Vecker
has not only been considering
it, but lias been in communicn-
tion wtth-t4t- Government on
the subject, with the result that
he and Mr Anders arrived per
S. S. Morro Castle on the 12th
These gentlemen have signed
necessary Memorandum and
Articles of Association for
corpora ting, and we are credibly
informed that a Petition will
be presented to the Legislature
in due <-onrse for certain con-
cessions as to free imports, &-C
They have gone very carefully
into the possibilities of the
scheme, have obtained an option
of a suitnl'le site,and have gone
away to draw plans, order mat
erial &c, awaiting the result of
petition, expecting to return
here not Inter than June, if all
goes well to commence opera-
tion.
The two or goint plants will
mean the expenditure of about
20,000 o o, n quarter of which
amount will go into the pockets
|of the labouring classes* of this
place.
It is propesed to construct n
large fire proof building on the
selected sigh, and already they
have made preliminary arrange
men ts for the quarry of stone fur
their ptrrposesi
They had the pleasure of an
nti n iew \\ th the Electrii al
Supt. I' II. Burns Esq who
showed them over the Electric
Plant, and expressed himself
BS being pleased at the prospect
of their present electric light
machinery obtaining gas from
the new company and thus oh
, viate the necessity of producing
its own gas supply
L. Walton Young Esq also
liflterviewed them' and gave
j them much valuable informa
tion as to lobor and material
, available here.
The new company has no
wish or intention to compete
with the Electric Pepartmenl,
I as their scheme is to supply
Gas for cooking and heating
1 purposes, nnd also for lighting
, purposes beyond or outside the
Electric Zone.
The Ice question, is one often
written about and it If surper
fluous to say how anxious we
are for the Plant to be an es
tnblished fact.
:o:
Our readers are reminded of
the Historical Pageant at Gov
eminent House tomorrow after
noon.
A good show for a good cause
and well worth taking in.
Our thanks are due the lion
