The question of whether Red Cloud
shall have an ulectric lightning plant,
to bo owned und controlled by tho
jity, is agitating tho minds of many of
our citizens at present There seems
to bo no doubt in the minds of tho
members of tho council that the city's
ilnances uro in such shape that tho
city could go ahead with tho work.
It is argued that tho city could vote
siti issue of bonds to cover tho cost of
the plant, and that the interest ou tho
bonds would amount to less than half
what it would cost for street lightniug
indor private ownership. The rev
enue from rentals to private parties
would cover tho cost of maintenance
and operation, as well as give us an
opportunity to lessen tho cost and
improve tho service of tho water plant.
As an example of what municipal
ownership will do, take the city of
Soward. Tho net cost of tho Sew
ard electric lightning plant was 511,
:)00 '1 he city is now lighted by
twenty-five arc lights, aud during tho
year ending March 1
has ono life iusurauco company is
suing policies which are absolutely
fair to tho insured, stating in tho
policy emphatically that tho policy
shall participate in all prollts of tho
company resulting from interest in
vestments, lapses, and from all
other sources. Tho compiw y is doing
business on tho mutual old lino legal
reserve plan and every policy is fully
secured by tho deposit of farm mort
gagos with tho auditor of tho stato as
required by the laws of Nebraska.
This company did more business in
our homo state during 11)0-1 than was
dono by any of tho eastern old lino
companies. This homo company is
hooping all its funds invested in No
braska securities and is destined to
become ono of tho greatest financial
institutions of tho west Thousands
