Mr. Harvey, who was the spokes
man of the lighting company, stat
ed that the engine and generator to
be used in the plant in this city
had been ordered from the Choose
factory at Mattoon. Illinois, and
should be loaded and ready for ship
ment in a few days at least. This
engine and generator are new and
fully capable Mr. Harvey stated of
carrying the load of the city and
others whih might be placed upon
it in case of emergency. One of the
chief engineers of the light com

day and went over the plant in thic
city with Superintendent Kuvken

the installing of the engine and
generator, and supervising the over
hauling of the boilers which Mr.
Harvey stated were in excellent
shape and with some slight repairs
would be ready for service and
were ample to carry the load that
would be demanded by the new ma

From Wednesday's Dally.
Edward Fitzgerald is in the city
enjoying a short visit here with his
daughter Miss Opal Fitzgerald and
looking after some business matters
before returning to his ranch in the
western portion of the state. Mr.
Fitzgerald is wearing his head
bandaged up as the result of a rath
er serious accident that he exper
ienced at the stock yards in Omaha
Monday afternoon. Mr. Fitzgerald
had brought six cars of cattle from
the ranch to Omaha and after hav
ing them unloaded was looking over
the. stork yards when ho had the

plaiii; wall: over one of the feeding
pens to tin- ground a distance of
sr.nie ten feet r.nd as a result he
fell in such a manner as to severely
lacerate one of his ears as well as
bruise him up considerably. The
injured ear was dressed and is
getting along as well as could be
expected but is still quite painful.

N'ebraska for the supplying of cur
rent, for the different transmission
lines that they control. The Ne
braska gas and power company have
lines reaching west as far as Fuller
ton and southwest into Hamilton
and York counties, north as far as
N'crfolk and south to this county,
and Mr. Harvey stated that the ex
acr location of the plant had not
been determined at this time as the
plans for the plant were still under
discussion and action on them would
not be taken for some time. This
proposition will be taken up at a
meeting of the stockholders of the
company in Cleveland, Ohio, during
the coming month and discHssed.
but it is probable that no definite
action will be taken for this year at
least. To establish a plant of the
size and cost of that planned by the
Nebraska gas and electric company,
it wil be necessary. Mr. Harvey
stated, to develop to a high degree
the efficiency of the transmission
lines as well as to increase the num
ber of consumers of electric current
so that when the plant was install
ed it would be possible to place up
on it a load that would give a reas
onable rt-turn upon the investment
made. The cost of a plant as pro
jected by the Nebraska gas and
electric company would be in the
neighborhood of $.",.00f.000 or $4.

have to be assured of a sufficient
patronage for their current to make
the erection of the plant an object

some little time to develop Nebraska
