."It was thought at tho boginnlng of
tho coal strllco that tiie company nau

"This quantity in transit Is boing do-

als and .public Institutions would bo
without light or power. There would
bo no power for electrical instruments
used by doctors and dentists.
"Even though the coal in transit
arrives in time to prevent any shut
down, It is possible that the mines
may be slow in opening up and mak
ing deliveries regardless of the fact
that the strike is ended, and it will
take possibly a week after the mines
do open up to got coal delivered.
"In the interest of nil, and In spito
of any loss of revenue to tho company,
wo feel It our duty, therefore, to ad
vise everyone to be conservative In tho
use of electricity. In other words we
request everyone to save electricity so
that tho supply of coal may be made to
Inst as long as possible. Individual
savlug of electricity may appear to bo
insignificant to the private citizen,
but individual savings in the nggrogate
can accomplish a considerable econo

merchants to limit their window light

our other customers to economize in
their use of electricity as much as pos
sible until this emergency Is over.
"We'Teol hopeful that we will get
through the present difficulty without
having to shut down tho plant hut wo
also feel thnt It is our duty to warn
everyone of the exact condition of af

of our customers in conserving fuel

Hny of Hope for Coal
Local coal, dealers have been as
sured by tho Union Pacific company
that the cars of coal thov had in tran
sit prior to November first hnvo not
been confiscated or diverted; thnt the
cars are simplv "hold" for order of tho
government. This Is encouraging, for
the dealers had some reason to believe
that tholr coal had been either seized
or diverted. Yesterday one dealer
was advised that two cars of his coal
which had been held at Rawlins had
been released, and the two cars will
nrobablv bo started on their way to
North Platte, but It Is not known how
soon thev will arrive.
North Platto dealers had about forty
oars In transit prior to November
first. If thoso havo not. as tho Union
Pacific states, been confiscated or di
verted and will be released by tho gov-
ornmont, there is a ray of hope for
better coal conditions in North Platte.

represents a dollar paid by tho pur

pates both in the management and the
