SAYS TRUE STORY
NOT GIVEN OF CASE
Nebraska Lighting Co., Not Wholly
to Blame for Discontinuaaice
of Service to Patron
from Wednesday's Dally.
Relative to statements made at
the council meeting on Monday even
ing as to the discontinuance of the
electric lignt service to a party re
siding in the former home of John
Beeson near Lincoln avenue. Mana
ger Kuykendall yesterday afternoon
stated the ciscumstances of the case
as they reoccurred to his mind to
the Journal representative. It seems
said Mr. Kuykendall that sometime
before he assumed the management
of the lighting company here, the
manager of the Lincoln Telephone
& Telegraph line had allowed an
electric line to be strung in on their
lines to the residence of Mr. Beeson
and to this line ' thte 'Nebraska Gas
& Electric Co., were requested to
supply current, which they did, now
when Mr. Beeson 6old his residence
property, Mr. Kuykendall states, the
telephone company promptly notified
the light company that they would
not tolerate the electric light wires
on their poles and for the lighting
company to discontinue the . current
along that line. This was complied
with, the current shut off, and the
wires removed. The line carried four
or five blocks of wire and had the
lighting company put them in on a
copper circuit, Mr. Kuykendall states
that the service would cost the con
sumer something like $1 per kilo
watt. This ia the reason for the service
being discontinued and not the fact
that the man in question declined
to purchase any stock of the light
ing company. If the consumer is will
ing to stand the cost the company
will put the line in for him.
