acted as groomsmen and Miss Blanch
.Moling, of Holdrege, sister of tho

Wo have had numerous inquiiies of
Into by our citizens in tho following
words: "Why don't tho Chikk advo
caio tho lighting of our city? It is a
shamo and disgrace to n town tho
size pf Red Cloud to have dark streets
after 7 p.m." And with them wo nre
willing to heartily ngroo. Thero ought
to bo lights on our streots nftor 7 p.m.
when tho stores closo. Wo aro all
ready and willing to ndmit tfiat. But,
what is the proper method of lighting
our streets? Thnt is tho question.
Some say electric lights, and others,
(wo might say tho majority of our pop
ulation) Bay no moro electric lights
for us, we have had a plenty, nnd again
wo heartily agree. At this ago and
stago of tho wcrld oleotrio lights aro a
back number and too exponslvo to even
be thought of. And again numerous
towns throughout tho state aro being
lighted with tho now gas lamps. This
is what we would advocate for Rod
Cloud. Eloctrio lights at $100 to $125
per month aro too expensive. We be
lieve that our citv could bo lighted
with gaff lamps at one-fourth this price
after tbo lamps had onco boon put in,
aud tho cost of putting thorn In would
not bo over $500 at the most. The now
gasolino lamps of tho present timo are
almost tho equal of tho aro oloctrio
light in lighting power, and can bo op-
orated at one-tenth the cost. Why not
light our city with thorn? Whou a
move is mado to light our city with
gas lamps wo aro willing to do nil in
our power to bolp the good cause along
but wo will not advocato electric lights
as wo believe they aro too expensive a
luxury to burden our city with.
