NIOBRARA HYDRO PLANT
PROMOTERS VISIT O’NEILL
- LAST SATURDAY EVENING
The erection of a hydro-electric
plant of 4,000 horsepower capacity in
the Niobrara river north of O’Neill, is
to begin within the next fe\V weeks,
according to an announcement made
Saturday night at a mass meeting in,
this city by W. K. Newcomb, of
Omaha and A. W. Person of Fairmont,
officers of the- Northwestern Nebraska
Power company. The plant will cost
in excess of $450,000, according to
Mr. Newcomb, who is chairman of the
board of the company, and Mr. Per
son, its chief engineer.
The plant will be of a type similar
to the Keokuk one on the Mississippi
river, in that the power house will be
in the center of the stream. This
system of construction does away
with trouble from suspended sand and
silt in the stream, a grave trouble for
hydro plants of the retard dam type,
several of which already are in opera
tion in the state. The power site,
which was held up by the state for
several years under previous adminis
trations, was approved by the state
on January 29. It also has been in
i spec ted and approved by Dr. Condia
' of the state university, who, is said to
have pronounced it one of the best
not only along the Niobrara but in
the entire state. It is located one
quarter mile above the Whiting brdge
on the federal highway between
O’Neill and Spencer.
The eompany proposes to bring
electric current to the city limits of
the cities and towns in the territory
without cost to the municipalities, ar d
to there deliver it to the switchboard
at a rate of 2 cents per kilowatt. Con
tracts also have been made with north
Nebraska and South Dakota electric j
distributing companies to take all of
the surplus current generated. The
proposition for the development of i
the waterpower resources of the river
was endorsed by the mass meeting, j
which also recommored that the city
council investigate the proposal to
contract for the sale of current to the
city. Acceptance of the proposal will
mean that the city will have to erect|
a distributing system or else purchase
the one now owned and operated by
the local lighting company.
THE CITY ELECTION.
Thefcity election past off quietly in
O’Neill Tuesday, there being but one
contest for the office of councilman
and that was in the third ward where
L. G. Gillespie defeated George Shoe
maker, the present incumbent. Only
a light vote was polled.
Miss. Anna O’Donnell and C. B.
Scott were each re-elected to positions
on the school board. Miss Meta Mar
tin, who was also a candidate for a j
position on the school board, received i
a light vote.

Dr. at which time it will be ascer

in the band. When the boys are able
to handle the heavier music the two
bands will be merged.
O’Neill needs a band and the efforts
of Dr. Lubker to reorganize the band
and furnish some music, are com
