Every Brunswick Should Read

Report of W. 8. Greene, Receive?
Brunswiok Light and Water Cos.
To the Committee of Bondholders’
Brunswick, Ga., Deo. 31.1900.
Replying to your inquiry as to rates
obarged by this Company to the City
of Brunswiok for Water, Gas and
Eleotrioity supplied by this Company
to said City, and a comparison of rates
in other cities aod towns in the stats
of Georgia, I beg to say that a proper
comparison ean only be made as be
tween private corporation?, as where
there ia municipal ownership the city
Of ooorae supplies itself. 1 have pro
oured books of rates aod rules from
aeveral cities and from them have
gathered material for comparison, and
which I herewith submit:
lat. Brunswiok, Ga.—For fire protec
tion, eaob hydrant yearly $50.00
Flushing sewer aod other purpose?,
for a daily consumption of from 1000
to 30,000 gals, per 1000 gals 10
This Company puts in ail corporation
cooks at mains, lays all service pipes
to sidewalk and puts in stop cock free
Of cost to consumer.
The City has a Waring system ot
sanitary sewerage with sixty four
automatic flush tanks, formerly set to
flush three times in twenty four hours,
each tank holds 150 gallons, and the
46 require 10,613,000 gallons per year.
For this I made them a rjte of 100. per
1,000 gallons, but it was rejeoted and
the water has never been paid for and
la still being supplied under protest,
and ie still being used.
Q There are also two water carts for
street sprinkling using 3,831.260 gal
lons per year, and this is on same
footing as the sewerage w&ter. Tbe
monthly amount now charged the city
is abont $1,000.00 or $12,000.00 per year
or $1,33 per oapita, I heard Col.
Goodyear in a speech at the City Hall,
in speaking about the health of the
City, say it was due to tbe magnificent
aawei-ags system, \vhioh of c urse
would be useless without this Compa
ny’s water to flush it.
Tbla City is supplied with gas for 146
street lamps, each lamp consu mi ng 1400
feat of gas monthly or 16.800 feet
yearly, at a charge of $ 1.19 per 1,000
feet, or ye arlv per lamp $20.00
It is also supplied with 47 electrio
aro lamps each yearly SB4 00.
2nd. Atlanta Water Works.— Thie
being municipal ownership, there is no
charge for water used by the City;
hence I gave rates to oonsumerr, and
wbiob are usually higher than rates to
cities in ease of private corporation, as
retail is to wholessle:
Atlanta charges per 1,000 gallons daily
up to 75,000 daily for each 1,000
For 150,000 gallons daily 08
For 1,050,000 “ “ 06

Fire protection by the mile of water
main at $333.33 per mile with 20 hy-
drants to each mile of main.
Gas. Now as to the comparison of gas
charges, I have no statistics on hand,
bnt the sharge of this company of $1.19
per 1,000 feci is believed to be as low as
In any other city not giving -‘one dol
lar gas” and this compaLy holds
that its aharges are below any city Id
the south in its rates to a municipality.
I put in a meter on a street gas lamp
and it is lit and put out by our lamp
lighter as the oity’s lamps are, aud I
find it consumes about 1.600 feet In the
winter months and 1,200 in the summer
months, an average of 1,400 icet per
month for the year.
Electricity. This company charges for
electric city lighting as follows;
Each arc lamp, 2000 candle power,
burning all night and every night, the
sum of $7,00 per month each, or, SB4 00
per year, and asserts the fact that it is
less that nine tenths of the cities in the
south charge, and lees than any oharge
under like conditions, with ooal at
$3.40 per ton.
Now to give comparison of eleetio

A SAD DEATH.
Mrs. H. Myers Passed Away Tuesday
Died, at 3:3d e clock a. m., January
let, 1901, Lula Dart Myers, wife of
Mr. H. Myers, of Tifton, Ga., and old
est daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. R.
Dart, of Brunswiok, Ga.
To live a happy, petted girlhood; to
be a well-beloved wife, aDd to die be
fore the cares of life and motherhood
furrowed the brow, and sever the
bounding heart, is the happiest fate
that can befall a woman.
Such has been the lot of Lula. Five*
years ago this Marob, she married the
man of her choioe, and though she
went with him to live at Tifton, in the
lovely little home he provided, her vir
its to her parents have been frequeDt,
aod t-acb return brought to us akuowl
ege of ber happy contentment, and the
certainty that Lula was beloved by her
husband’s large family oirele, as she
had been by her own. When she came
Chela Christmas there was hope of even
greater happiness than the season
usually brings, and when ber little son
was laid in her arms, aud we were as
sured that “all was well,” our con
gratulations were showered on the
proud young parent with little thought
that before three days were done, Lula
would have left this world, and all its
joys and sorrows forever. Yet, suoh
has been the oase—and today we lay
her sweet young body in the grave;
while the grief of ber husband and pa
rents, the sobs of her sisters, and ories
of ber dear little baby, fall on non
There i*.jjo comfort for ‘hose so
sadly bereft, but to* 'uer, bur pula,
there should be only joy lo ber new
and perfect life.
No more nervous apprehensions, no
more pain and tears for ber! From
happiness to heavenly bliss, from a
bed of pain to peics unspeakable, Lula
Our dear little nervous girlie,
I’aioleßS and quiet now,
With the peace of ao endless restful*
Stamped on her marble brow,
Has gone to ber home in Heaven,
And waving her beautiful hand.
Called to us, “Come! I am waiting,
Safe in this eorrowless land.”
