J. P. Jackson: I have found, as I presume all who have dealt with gas power-plants have found, that the first question to be determined is that of reliability. Is it possible to have a plant that will operate continuously with good service under all conditions, a plant that will not shut down on account of trouble of one kind or another, as gas plants have a habit of doing?
