BTAENAYON. INQUESTS.—On Saturday afternoon Mr. Eatt, coroner, held two inquests at. the Railway Hotel. The first was on the body of William Morgan, 45 years of age, a labourer. Dr. Quick, who attended deceased, said he was suffering from heart disease and indigestion. A verdict of Death from heart, disease" was returned.—The second in- quiry was touching the death of IVilliam Watkins, 76 years of age, who was killed by some trucks going over him. on the night of February 1. A verdict of Accidental death" was returned. TIIE PRJCB or GAS.—A correspondent writes to us complaining of the exorbitant price charged for gas in Blaenavon. He says We have to pay a scandalously high rate for gas, though wo have a works for its manufacture literally on the top of the coal pits which msans that the coal costs the company no more than about 7s. per ton delivered. This shows that the company get. at the present price, something like .£2 Os. 6d. for every 7s. spent on coal, estimating 9,000 feet per ton of coal used. Taking the cost of coal used in other towns, I find that the price is about two and a half times more than here, and the gas considerably less to con- sumers. Why should this be ? If the manage- ment is defective the directors are to blame, and ought not to charge their customers with their faults. There is a word, too, about the quality of it. Only the other night I had to light candies, the gas gave such a dim light. Does not this add to the cost to the consumer of gas by making him burn more? If the Blaenavon Iron and Steel Com- pany will only extend their electric wires into the town they will confer a boon on the poor con- sumer, who has to pay such a high price for gas as to make it an expensive and sometimes almost useless luxury to burn it."
