I HEREFORD ELECTRICITY UNDER- TAKING. Proposed Extension of the Works. The Mayor (Mr G B Greenland1) presided on Tuesday at a meeting of Hereford Town Council. The Electric Light Committee presented n report showing a surplus on the year's working of £ 106, as against a deficit last year of 1453. It was stated by Alderman kvi,llls that the concern had now turned the corner. Mr Dymond, chairman of the committee, said he was optimistic as to the future, and added that the ectleulations made three or four years ago as to the amount of revenue to be derived now bad worked out to within about X5 of the estimate. There was a scheme for extending the machinery at a. cost of £ 530, building a new chimney at £ 500, and constructing new mains at a cost of C240. The income from the sale of electricity and from meter rents showed all increase of £7H:, and the net profit, after providing for interest, was C2,492, as compared with £ 1,894 in the previous year. In the debate an extension of the works was fore-shadowed, The Gas Committee recommended a reduction of 2d per 1,000 cubic feet to penny- in-the-slot meter holders, making a discount of lOd per 1,000 from the gross cljarge in lieu of 8d as hitherto.—This was agreed to. It was reported that Councillor Oa1 field, had preseuted a marble statue, The Birili of the Rose," by the late Benjamin Jennings, to the Free Library, in memory of the late Mr William Jennings, Herelord. The bo-.k* in the library numbered 10,995, aud the number borrowed last year showed an increase over that of the previous year of 91a.
