Description

Excerpt from Report of the Commissioners for the Queen Victoria Niagara Falls Park, 1899 In order to secure the abandonment of the monopoly clause on the part of the company, it was found necessary to make some concession in the rental, which would facilitate the financing of the enterprise, until a market for a reasonable amount of the product could be found and the business of the company placed upon a secure basis. The Commissioners are convinced that the principle adopted in the new agreement of paying a fixed rental for the first horse power generated and disposed of, and thereafter a charge for every additional horse power sold, will produce a much larger revenue to the Commissioners in the course of a few years, and will assist greatly in inducing other capitalists to engage in developing other and competitive power projects, to the great and per manent gain of the community and the best interests of the Park and of the Province. The terms of this agreement will be found in the appendix to this report. Since the execution of the agreement, the Company have been engaged in making core test holes at several points along the line of its proposed works, in order to determine the nature of the rock in which their excavations and tunnels will be constructed.
