THE Ystrad Gas and Water Company are apparently determined to set at defiance the agitation which has for some time been on foot in the Rhondda Valley for a reduction in the price of gas. When last we wrote upon this question, there seemed some probability of a compromise being arranged, but now a settlement seems as far off as ever. At the meeting of the Rhondda Valley Chamber of Trade last night âIn consequence of a satisfactory reply not having been received from the directors of the gas company, numerous petitions were submitted to the meeting, containing the names of hundreds of consumers, all of whom, it was alleged, were determined to discontinue the use of gas unless a re duction were made. It was proposed that the chamber finally fix the 15th of January as the date for the dis- continuance of the use of gas. This was seconded and duly carried. One of the members proposed that should they come to a decision to discontinue the use of gas, the consumers, after turning it off, should act unanimously in declining to re- sume its use unless the company compensate tm for the expense incurred in buy.ng lamps. The Ystrad Gas Company will probably be wise in titne. When they find that the gas conlimuen in their district are fully determined to carry a reduction in the price of gas, they will probably concede it; but they may wait until the oil lamps are in general use. Then they will no doubt be glad not only to reduce the price of gas, I but also to compensate the consumers of the expense incurred in buying those lamps.
