RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA. FEB. 3. 1898.
A NEW PROPOSITION.
The Projectors of the Electric Light Plant
Present a New Proposition. City
Need Take No Lights
Thin week tho City of Red Cloud re
ceived 11 now proposition from Messrs.
T. II. Fisher ami Wm. E. Gray of Den
ver, tho projectors of tho Hod Cloud
electric Unlit, heat nnd power plant.
It Neenis those gentlemen uro willing
anil anxious to put in an electric light,
heal nml power plnnt in thlx city at an
expenditure of about $20,000, and why
stumbling blocks should ho strewn in
their way and eold water thrown on
their proposition Is more than tho av
erage enterprising citizen can soo. Tho
new proposition Is much hettcr for tho
city than tho former 0110 in which tho
city was aked to tnko llfteon streot
lights, hut under tho presont propo
sition tho city is not nsked to tako a
single light unless it wants to. This
clause in tho former proposition caused
considerable opposition 1)7 reason of
many thinking that our city was not
linnneinlly nolo to pny S1125 per year
for street lights. Another fenturo wri
tho granting of ntwenty-onoyear frnt
chiso, supposedly oxcluslvo. Tho new
proposition nsks for n twonty-ono year
franchise, hut does not ask for nn ex
clusive franchise, and tho stato lns
would not permit tho granting of srrh
ovon wore tho city inclined to concede
it. A careful rending of tho franchise
clause in tho proposition will convince
anyone that all tho projectors ask for
is tho right to maintain and operate
their plant for n period of twenty one
years without being compelled to ro
movo it, nnd not a word appears in tho
proposition which would prevent tho
city from granting a dozon nioro fran
chises for a liko purpiso. Another ob
jection was tho numerous improve
ments tho franchise included, viz: elec
tric lighting nnd heating, sUnm heat
ing, n power plant and gas lighting nnd
heating "should it becomo nccessnrv
during tho lifo of franchise" In just
what mnnncr any of these nro to bo
detrimental to tho interests of our city
we nro at presont unable to see, and if
tho city over grows to proportions that
will render them necessary nnd foasiblo
why should not parties who nro willing
to holp build us up to that point bo
granted tho franchise. And would not
the granting of such bo an inducement
to them to help tho city in every way
in gaining that point. Tho city council
at its meeting last Wednesday took no
action on the mattor, but will hold a
meeting sonio day next week, which will
bo previously advertised, at which
timo the proposition will come up for
considointion and everybody who'has
anything for or against tho proposition
should attend. Following is tko prop
osition as presented, only that it is
slightly nbroviated, as tho entire prop
osition is too long to permit of publi
cation, however, nnno of tho features
havo been omitted. Rend it over care
fully and you will find nothing that
will bo detrimental to ourinterosts, but
to tho contrary you will iind several
things which will bo very beneficial to
our city during tho next twonty-ono
