GAS V. ELECTRICITY. I 9 SWANSEA CORPORATION'S BID. The statements made at the Swansea Highways Cimmittee, that the nfice of gas in the borough is one of the highest in the kingdom, are borne out by the annual compilation just made by the Borough Treasurer of Preston—an auth- oritative list on the subject. Of a very long list of county boroughs in one case oniv, that of Barnsley, is the pNce higher than at Swansea. Manyj others are considerably lower. Here are a few:—Bath 2s., Bootle 2s. 3d., Cardiff 2s. Pd., Chester 2s. 9d., Derby 5s. &t., Liverpool 2s. 3d.. Newport 2s. lid., Pres- ton 3s., Plymouth 2s. 4d., Portsmouth 2s. 8d., Sheffield, Is. 9d., Sunderland Is. 9d., York 2s. 7d., and so on; Swansea 3s. 4d. (since increased to 3s. 6d.}, Barnsley 3s. 6d. Meanwhile the Corporation are effenng1 special facilities to occupiers of houses and business premises who are unable or, unwilling to bear the initial cost of in- stalling the electric light. In brief, the Corporation will do the installation pn the hire purchase system, and the rates pro- posed are easy. An approximate cost of installing electric light say in a six- roomed house would be t4 5s. 6d., and the occupier is asked to deposit only 20 per cent. of this cost, and the balance I can be repaid by quarterly instalments spread over periods of three, five or seven years. Full particulars can be had of the Borough Electrical Engineer or the Borough Treasurer.
