Electricity vs. Gas-
The town, if we remember correctly,
is under a twenty-five year contract to
take fifty street lights from the Gas
Co. This number they took when gas
was first introduced. Since that time
the demand for lights has induced the
council to add ten or fifteen additional
lights. We assume that the town
only bound for fifty lights. If this be
true, would it not be a good idea to
substitute the electric arc lights, now
suspended at the intersection of Broad
and Jackson, and Broad and Fletcher,
in lieu of the eight gas lamps used to
light these corners? The town pays
two hundred and forty dollars per an
num for these 8 lights, and they could
doubtless save money by substituting
the electric lights. Besides, the arc
lights light up the corners and adjacent
streets more brilliantly than the gas
As good lights and economy are the
watch words of the hour, we throw
out the suggeslion for what it may be
worth—if it be worth anything—for
the consideration of the city fathers.
There is another view of it: We
should like lor visitors and strangers
coming to Thomasville to see Broad
street, at least, flooded with electric
lights. It speaks of progress, keeping
up with the procession and this im
pression is worth something to. the
We would say nothing to cripple the
gas company; we want them to receive
their lull share of patronage; want
them to do well, to make a fair divi
dend on their investment, but for the
reasons assigned we think the substi
tuting of the arc electric lights for the
gas lights mentioned, would be a
good thing for the town. And we
are lor the town, first, last, and all the
It might not be a bad idea, in fact,
we think it would be a good one, to
put two additional arc lights on Broad
one between the Masury and the court
house, and tlie other near the railroad
and the Piney Woods hotel. This
would flood liroad with splendid
lights. %nd then the new lights might
be put on Jackson, one at the city hall
and two more between Broad and the
depot. This would light the central
portion of the city, and be a great
safeguard a'gainst burglars.
In the territory mentioned there are
29 street lamps. These cost the town
$880. The number of electric arc
lights mentioned (seven) could doubt
less be put up and run for less money.
Good, economical lights are what the
The gas lights removed, over and
above the fifty—which the town is
bound to take, might be placed at
other points where they are needed.
This will be economy for the town.
Friday night, about 10 o’clock,
some oue entered the residence of Mr.-
T. C. Mitchell, ou Remington Avenue.
The family were sleeping up stairs,
and Mrs. Mitchell heard the thief
walking about below, and called out
of tho window. Mr. Will Mitchell,
who lives just noross the street from
his father’s, responded and entered
the houso through a window, just
as the would-be burglar quitted the
house by the door. Mr. Mitchell shot
at him twice with a pistol, just as he
was entering the pear grove adjoining
the front yard, hut ceased firing,
when the fellow cried out, “don’t
shoot,” thinking he had hit him.
Will is a good shot, but ruuuing after
a burglar, over rough ground, bare
footed, clad in sleeping attire, dodgitig
trees and overhanging limbs, is not
calculated to make one’s aim any bet
ter. Now if tlie fellow bail been
thrown from a trap, Will would have
winged him certain.
It is not known whether the in
truder was while or blnek.
Mr. Mitchell found a silver fork
which the thief dropped in his flight,
