Citizen There Fears Utilities Com

In view of the fact that Shelby at
the present time Is considerably In
terested in anything dealing with
light and power rates, the follow
ing comment of a Gastonia citizen
appearing this week in The Gaz

“If we do not watch the South
ern Public Utilities company, they
are coming into Gastonia and buy
out our local light and power
plant," said a citizen of the town
•'They have secured entrance
into every town around here; Gas
tonia is the only place where they
have not succeeded in buying up
the local fight and power plant and
they are anxious to come in, but
the city is making gdod money
from the sales of light and power
from its own plant and it would not
be good business to sell it now un
less we could get a big price for it,
knd the S. P. U„ is not going to
pay too much for it.
"If the city of Gastonia can
make money off it. I say let's keep
it. First tiling you know, if the S.
P. U. get hold of it, rates on lights
and power will jump out of sight;
and there will be no getting around
it, for they will be the whole
cheese around here and can set the
price what they want it to be.
"No, I think we should give this
matter a lot of study before we
sell out to them; let's debate the
proposition and look at it from
every angle before we get too far.

toward the eventual purchase of
