Continuing Mr. Morris said: "Up to this time the city has not known all the fscts. We have arrived at the point where Mr. Ballard, the lighting expert who is aiding thc city in the light, and myself think It wise to enter into a plan for a settlement. This proposition is not started by the city bnt tbe Light Company has expressed tbe desire. ' After going over the matter thoroughly wltb Mr. Ballard we have decided that no tana can be done in looking to a settlement, if we can g.-.t a reasonable offer we will present if to couhsij.' w*'#in'brfih a position to lay tnr.t the city has made an effort to settle*.

I want to say frankly to council that everything I did hu been done honestly'for the city. If the question Is settled we can go ahead with the street .lighting proposition. If the rate granted by the Utilities Commission is aot satisfactory to the company the latter can catry it up through tbe courts.

Then lf we do arrive at an' agreement we will come back to council for its sanction If the city desires to settle, now is the time to negotiate.' 8olidtor Morris said tf we get a settlement now, we shall know st ones what the rate will be, rather Uun bv waiting two or three years by having the decision of the commission thrown into tho courts. Allowing tbe esse to go to ths commission ls like placing a case before a jury—no one can tell what tbe verdict wlll be.
