THE GAS SITUATION


Communicated.

Through the northeastern and northern part of the county the Ohio syndicate have a system of ten-inch mains, with a large portion of the land covered by leases. This system reaches well across the county westward, to a point north of Muncie. Indianapolis syndicates are in on the west and northwest, with a system of eight and ten inch mains and have a large acreage under lease. Chicago corporations are heading this way, and while, perhaps, they have no footing in the county, they are now in a position to be a competitor for the county's gas output. Richmond penetrates the county on the southwest, extending northward with a good system of mains sufficient to carry all the gas from that vicinity
