B. Rae inginouring oompany of
Chicago , to ascorlain what the oily
could put'iu a plant for. In order
that the public may have the benefit
of tbc information obtained we
nubmit below i the Icttora which

$3,500. This amount of money
would not cost the city to exceed
seven per cent intorcHt , or $236
annually. If bondri were floated to
Bouuro the ready inonuy neoesaary
to put in the plant it in nrgued liy
somu that four per cent boiulH could
bo negotiated at par. Thin would
reduce the coat to * 140 per year.
The revenue derived from the in
candescent lights to the merchants ,
private residences nml offices would
not only pay the interest but the
running expenses of the plant. The
proposition recently nubmitted to
the oily council by the Aurora gen-
tlomau in wbicb bo proposed to
furnish seven arc lights for 1600 a
year would , in seven years , have
cost the city $3,600 ; and the city
would have been but half lighted
and the uionoy paid by individuals
for incandescent lights would have
gone into the ovfforri of some for

Dear Sir : The subject of inuni-
ciplo ownership and operation o
electric light plants is engaging the
attention of municipal governments
very generally , and has perhaps
been considered by your council a
a possible moans of effecting eooti
omy m the administration of muni
cipal affairs. This company , in
their oapaoity as engineers , ha
been oonnootod with the municipal
izatioo of lighting plants for abou
eight years , during whioh time the ;
have been retained by the followiu )
cities : Detroit , Lauoing , Hillsdale

Dear Sir : This late reply ( to
your request for tome eleottio
lighting information with .which to
answer Mr. Loj\org a , of Brpkon
Bow , Neb. , has boon delayed be-
oai BO of my absence from the oitj.
I lake it Irom ( tholetler , you refer
to me that the city ia Dot lighted
nnd that there is no plant for fur
nishing lights located at Broken
Bow , and , that if a , plant ia installed
jy the city it uonld furnish arc
lights for tho.stroetdjand could also' '
sell incandescent lights to scores
ami residences. For n plant of
this uharactcr requiring only , a
small number of arc lights , I wpuld
suggest the installation of a aingle
alternating current dynamo hating
a capacity for , say about SOU inoan-
leeoeut lamps of sixteen oaudlo
power eaoh. Each are light operated
ated from this machine would
reduce ita capacity about ten oan *
doacent lights , ur in other words ,
to supply the twelve are lights
necessary would leave a oapaoity in
incandescent lamps of SCO to 800
To operate the five hundred light
incandescent plant to ita fall capac
ity would require about fifty horse
power , Exclusive of the building
necessary , a rough estimate of th <
cost of the plant would be aa fol
lows : Boiler and ataok .oreotac
complete $050 ; engine , feed water
heater , boiler , feed pump , piping
bolts etc , 1750 ; dynamo , switch
board , twelve are lamp * and , station
wirinu ; $1,780. The po'e ' line con
atruolion with the are circuit BUS-
pensions , feed wires for , the incan
descent system , including converters
ors and erection complete $1,000
engineering and other expenqei
$950 ; total for the plant exnlusive
ot the building , $3,350. The eity
should vote an appropriation of a
least this amount and it would b
better perbapsn to aik for $3,800
The revenve from the inoandeioon
lighting baaed on 300 ) amps burn
ing three hours per day and 800
days per year , which is a v ry low
would yield a rcvomio of
12,000 per year , which would more pny thi ) coht of operation
nctuding intercut on bonds , if
jondn weto noccri'ary. If the city
vote to put in plant , we will In-

iJonnreHMiiari W li. Green died
ist Saturday night in Omaha in
thu B. & M. depot , while on his
way lo Lincoln. Tint following
from the Onriha Buc tells of the
event as follows :
Al 7 o'olook last iiighl William
L Green , of Koarnny , of the Sixth
congressional district of Nebraska ,
was apparoutl hale , hearty and in
'ull enjoyment of life with all its
) leasureridomeHlio , nocial and po-
ilical. At B o'clock he had joined
the great majority , UIH' ' thu awful
najesty of death was stamped upon
tin face as . .o lay in his last Hlocp on
ho cold mosaic floor of the Bur *
iugton station in ihis city.
Mr. Green came to Omaha from
jincoln on Friday evening and put
up at the Arcade hotel. Ho had
> con at the state capital for some
days , having oomo up from Wash-
nglon to witness the election of a
Nebraska senator. After spending
Saturday greeting his friends and
attending to busines in town , he
ook a hook about 7:45 : in the oven-
ng to catch the Burlington train
o Lincoln.
Congressman Green WIIH accom-
mnied by three friends , bound for
ho same train , J. C , Reeves , of
liadison county , a farmer ; R B.
* rinoe , a hotel keeper of Mndison ,
nd T. B. Donovan of the Madison
On reaching the station Cou-
; rosaman Green was observed lying
> aok in the seat of the back as if
asleep and every effort was made
by his companions and the paseon-
; erdirector to arouse him. Ho
was borne io an unconscious slate
o the waiting room of thu depot
and in answer lo a telephone message -
ago Dr. S. II. Smith was noon in
n attendance. On looking at the
> ody the doctor pronounced him
dead and advised Ihe railway au-
horities to summon a coroner.
Elia advice was immediately follOwed -
lOwed and in a few minuton Coroner
ner Swansea had gathered the facts
and thebad ; was removed to the
morgue. Death was attributed to
heart failure.
At the poat-mortem inquest hole
at Coroner Swansou's oflico an au
topsy was performed by Dr. Milroy
and the jury returned a verdict o :
death from llio. excot-sivu unu o
Already the popnhsts are discuss
ing the probtble man to ( ill the
vacancy in congress ouuanioued by
the death of W. L Green. Ex.
Gov. Jlolootab .and Judge II. M.
Sullivau are oonsidurod formidable
oaudidatos in this vicinity. It H
thought thtt Ex Sunator Stewart
of Chadron , and Wm. Neville , of
North Platte , will be caudidaies
but if theru ia no extra session
of congress , a special election oan
not bo called and the vacancy will
not bo u'Uod until the fall eluution ,
whioh will give limt for candidates
to develop in every county m the
district , But while the pops are
wrangliug over a choice the
republicans will so lout the
winner. The Omaha Bee and the
Fremont Tribune have each sug-
ueited , Senator bM. . Uurrie , as the
man that can take the uake , in
whioh they are eminently correct
The Tribune says :
'Perhaps the Rlrougcs candid lie
who could be named v/oukl bo
Senator Currto of Broken Bow
He would bo an ideal candidate for
the party. Ho carried u strong
ftsion district last fall in his candi
dacy for the ulate senate. He has
demonstrated himself cue of the
atrongett men , if not the real leader
of the aenate. Hie winter's work
at Lincoln baa been highly credit
able. He IB a strong debater , lit
is a college bred man. He instead
fast in his honorable purposes
Moreover , he is a farmer and cattle
grower * It would be a praise
worthy innovation for Nebraska to
break its delegation of lawyers sen
to Washington by electing a pro
duoer to congress. Senator Currie
it a repreientatiYe of the two su
ironic imluptmm of the Hixth ( Ii3-
iii-i the only ones worth mention-
ng. Ono of thu issues upon which
ic was chosen lo the senate was
tin opposilion lo Irun railroad
nHief. Ho i ppOBed a popul si u
IIIH and ( lnfciitcd him in a populist
stronghold , He would have an
advantage in linn. Gavernor Hol
mb for instance has worn a pook-
11 full of pissca to a frazzle , which
M aNo probably true of any other
jopulItU likely to he nominated.
I'ho republicans of the sixth district
can practically insure victory by
nominating Senator Cnrric. "
The death of Congressman Green
romovuH 0110 of the moBt notable
characters of the niitli congressional
diHttict. IIt\ wan an able orator ,
forcible debater nnd a Htrong crim
inal lawyer , UIH great fault waH
IMH uncontrolable appetite for
itrong drink , which hutiicd hard
but was utiablu to control. He wan
n Htrong advocate of thu principles
of thu populist party , and in IIIB
doatli the parly hao lopt one of itH
ablest dofemlerH in the stato. The
Kiii'unuoAN extends its sympathy
to his wife and children , lo whom
ho WBH greatly dovotod.
It is reported that only fifty four
i of thu lifty eight pop inomberrt of
the stale legislature agreed to ao >
cept D. E. ThotnpHou'ti proposition ,
and as fourteen republicans would
not go into il , the dual was declared
off and tliun our populist brethren
lent their opportunity to elect one
to the United States HonrUo , whom
thuy have been pleased to dub a
the Mark ilanna , of Nobrasku.
In itti issue of last , week the Bio
ken Bow Chief attempted to ex-
) lain what was meant by llio term ,
'supporting the administration. "
As near as we oan h'guro it out , the
Chief ic "supporting thu adminis-
rrtion" by palling iho sheriff on

about it when ho is out of sight. .
