The City Council met Wednes
day night at the city hall. Ma
yor George and Councilman liaicb ,
Squires , Kimberling , l < cdwicb ,
and Taylor were present. After
the transaction of some routine
business the franchises submitt
ed by O P. Sells , of Sterling ,
Colorado , and O. .1. Shaw , of
Aurora Nebraska , wore lead.
Shaw and Sells were both present
at the meeting. They were
called upon to answer questions
concerning their franchises and
to give the council information
on the questou of the advantages
of muuiciple and private owner
ship in electric lights.
After some discussion it war
moved by Squires that the coun
cil recommend a franchise to the
people for them to vote for or
against at the municipal elect
ion if that they could secure a
larnchise which they believed
was for the interest of the pee
pie the motion prevailed. Coun
cilman Squires , Uaisch , and
Kimberliug voted for the motion
and Councilmen Ledwich and
Taylor favored municipal owner
Mayor George appointed a
committee consisting of Squires ,
I/edwich and Baisch to confer
with Shaw and Sells and any
other person who might desire
to put in an electric light sys
tem. This committee will con
fer with Shaw and Sells today
and will report to the council at
- . ' the next regular meeting.
1 beg to announce for the ad
vise of homcsteadeis under tl e
one section act especially , and to
th < > public in the dtbdistiict gen
erally , that by means of correspondence -
. pondence I have found enough
fri difference of opinion cxiatiug ar
1 > k to the advisability of seeming a
reduction of the improvement n-
v' quiremeuts to make me conclude
* " to defer pressing such legislation
until I shall have become moie
definitely informed as to the
propot lion of sentiment for and
against a reduction , also as to the
- < . * value of improvement , sc that I
s hall not attempt to promote SIILI
an amendment before the next
Docembersession , if at all , inlt nd-
ing meanwhile to become mete
fully advised. Any such legislat
ion that I may undertake to ptt-
mote must have the endorsement
of at least a very great majority
of my constituents in the territory
covered by the act. The pros
pects are that in order to secure
such an amendment the value of
improvements would have to be
fixed as high as ( W/- cents and
' - , ma\bcashigh as 75 cents per
acre. Advice by letter and other
wise will be appreciated.
