The privilege of operating a gas
plant and an electric light nnd gas
plant in North Platte Is sought by two
Individuals. A man named McLaugh
lin, of Washington, D. C, desires to
erect and maintain a gas plant, while
Mr. Todd, of Omaha, proposes plants
for gas and electric light and power.
Mr. McLaughlin submits to the
council a proposition to have the people
vote on 'his franchise at the next reg
ular oloction. Ho proposes to chnrge
$1.25 per 1000 feet for gas if bills are
paid when duo and in return for the
franchise will turn over to tho city
three per cent of the gross earnings of
the plant. Mr. Todd Introduced an
ordinance at the council meeting Tues
day evening which grants a franchise
for an electric light and gas plant. He
asks that n special election be held to
give tho people an opportunity to grant
or reject this franchise, and that he
will pay the expense of the election.
He proposes to charge $1.50 per 1000
for gas with a penalty of ten per cent
if bills are not paid when due.
Both propositions were referred to
the committee on lights of the council
manic body, and this committee will
probably make a report at the next
