Thq tow r lights , have sent out no lays for
the past two nights to guide the belated
lilurtltcto his home , nml they will not be
running ngnin until the weather moderates
Btifllclcntly for the men to work on the top of
the towers. The results experienced thus
far from thcuew method of lighting the city
have elicited widely varying comments , al
though it is the general impression that the
change has b cn for the better. Several of
the business mrn of thorliy hnvo expressed
themselves as being disappointed because the
lights did not do as well as thu ones did on
the court house during the trial last summer ,
and have attributed It to the Use of n three-
sided lantern instead of u globe around thu
lamps. In order to ascertain whether
them was anything ! this state
ment. the Hti : : mancstcrday
calico upon Mr , Thomas Officer , of the
electric light , company , and asked his opinion
of the present working of the new lights.
" 1 have not been around very much to f > cc
the effects from the different towers1 f.nid
he. "but from what 1 have seen 1 atn very
well satisfied. There was considerable
trouble in locating the tower on Oakland
avenue , from the fact that theic wcie no
cross streets along there to afford us the
proper guy fastenings , and one of tno posts
liatl to be placed on private property. The
only place to be obtained was at the coiner
of Avenue 10 , and Mr. Mutt granted the
desired permission to place a post on his
grounds. When 1 MUV the location , I was
very uncertain whether a tower at that place-
would light the bottom lands , as the liuhts
would be more than 'J.'jd foot above them ,
Wncn the lights wcie started I rode out tlinre
to see the effect , and was very iigiceabl.v dis
appointed. In testing the power of electric
lights , and thu results obtained from towers
of diffcient heights It has bcrn uscci tallied
that the same light will bo received ; lum fiet
from a 50 foot tower : I , t ( XI feet from a 7i > foot
tower : lf > ( K ) from a 100 foot tower ; -,1(10 ( tcct
from a 1-5 foot tower and " , .MiO feet finm a
150 foot tower. It was for this reason that I
advised the council to adopt the l.VI foot tow
ers. The .same i-xperiments showed I hut
when the lights were elevated above Kill feet
the distance to which the light was thrown
begun to decrease , demonstrating that the
best results could be obtained from towers of
thu height adopted In the citj. "
"I Jo you think that ( lie lanterns now in UM :
on the tower lights are as good as the globe- ,
that were used on the old lights ! "
If 1 had not thought Sn , I shuuld nut have
bought them , us they cost about S."i , while I
could have bought globes for the twenty-
eight lamps at about * ! apiece. 1 went to
Detroit , where thi'V li'.ur about one bundled
and twenl.v-tive \ loot towers , and saw
these lanterns in use. 1 did not make any
particular inquiries in rcg.ml to them , but
supposed they had pivcji them a sufficient
test. It maj bo Hint globes would be bettor ,
but I think tli.it the lanterns have not yet
had a fair test. The glasses hud to be put in
alter the lamps wcie in place , and the
weather at thu time WHS quite cold for a man
to work at tli.it elevation with his ban- hands ,
for tiiu glass had to be cut on the
top of the lowers , so it would
, iot be at all surprising if the
work was done rather hurriedly , and the
the glass mluht not have fitted tightly. It
will be impossible to tell what caused them
to blow out , until a man can go to ( lie top of
the towers. The lamps may have swung
around so us to bring thohot metal in cont'ict
with the glass , und so have ciacked and
broken it , although it is of double thickness.
It is too cold at present for a man to work at
replacing the glass , but such weather would
not prevent him from going up to put In now
cartoons if the lamps were in running order.
Tin1 only objection to a globe is that it may
get full of snow and frce/e. Such a thing
might not happen for two or three years ,
although it did a few times last
winter. In those cases the base
was taken into an adjoining store
and thawed out , Imt that would bo almost
impossible to do with twenty-eight lights , lo
cated ISO fci't in the air. These lanterns
wcro supposed to obviate all such difficulties ,
and I want them fitted up in good shape this
time. If the city council prefers the globes ,
of course they can have them. The lights
will not be. started again until plcas.tnt
weather , for a man can not work up there
now. The lights on the court house were
fixed to-day , but the man had to come down
about every ten minutes to warm. Tins talk
about the corners of the lanterns throwing a
. heavy shade is overdrawn , for the shade
thrown by one lantern is overcome by the
light from another. I think they will work
all right , still they can bo changed if neccs-
"Do you think the lights on the court house
are giving as good results as they did last
"Yes , just exactly. There is no reason
why they should not. The lamps are just as
strong , and the current the same. There is
no difference. "
"Tnero is considerable talk in the city at
present regarding the incandescent light.
How is it as compared with the arc system i"
"Why , for lighting offices , private houses ,
and small rooms , the incandescent is the
thing , but for street lighting and for large
rooms the arc is the best. For a church ot
opera house the incandescent gives u much
pleasanter light , but it requires a gre.it many
of them. The arc lighting is giving peed
satisfaction at the prcsbytoriun church , and
it the Methodist will be lighted in the same
way , if other subscribers can be found in thai
vicinity to make it pay to build a line up
there. The work on the tower lights will be
1 done as soon as possible , and I hope the re
suit will bo satisfactory. I don't want an
other failure , and the repairs will not b (
made until they can be made properly. The
city will not bo left in absolute darkness , a
the moon and gas still shine. "

* > Glenwoodcomcs as a great surprise to many
( Ho was well known throughout this part o :

to Omaha , and thb best wishes of a largi '
circle of friends went with him. Ho hai

in heart , and when the announcement wa is ;
made that ho had been indicted for forgery , !
was generally thought that the result mus
be an honorable acquittal. Now following th
surprise felt at the indictment.comes u f urthe
surprise in the verdict of guilty.
The charge against Young was that ho hai
forged the name of Mr. Klnnry to a note fo
tiUK ) , and had used this note at the bank a
collateral security on n loan. Kinney cami
upon the stand und denounced the signatnr
Is as a forgery. To offset this the defens
in claimed that It was not that Kinney wh
in.Ml signed the note , but another Kinney , whos
.Ml homo was now in St. Louis , and whoso dc

stated that ho had signed thu note , and thu
it was his genuine note. This with Mi

It Wnti n Grand HIICCCHS.
The cantata "Under the Palms" had Its
second rendition last evening nt St , Paul's
church. The work Is the latest product of
the celebrated composer , George F. Itoot ,
and combines many of his best musical ideas.
In the disti ibutlon of the work splendid op-
IKirtunitles arc presented for the different
volcos. The onrcinblc is a grand conception ,
for in It. arc combined the various shades of
feeling which moved the Jewish people in
the scenes of their history which are hero de
picted. This presentation was an accurate
rcVroductlon of the conception of the author.
The chorus was constituted of about fifty
voices. It showed a wonderful symmetry
and unison in its execution. This wus the
result of careful training ut the hands of the
Hcv. t.1. . Mackcy and the organist , Mr. W.
J , ( .iratiun , and to them much credit is due
for thotruiningof the fifty children toso high
a degree is no small matter.
The soloists rendered their parts with rare
excellence. Mivs Barbara Merkel , the so-
piano , added new laurels to her already en
viable reputation. Mrs. Ward , always a
favorite , laid additional claim to prominence
as an alto foloist. Her voice showed Its won
derful richness especially in the solo , to
which Miss Mary Haas furnished a beautiful
harp accompaniment. This was keenly ap
preciated by the audience and the other
singers us well. Mr. I. M. Trcynor. wlioluus

The cn tumes were elegant and appropri

stage was erected in the chuncel und Its ur-
riinp-cincnt und adornment were beautiful.
Token as u whole the work was most ex
cellently rendered. The audience wus largo
and showed its appreciation freely as oppor

When Lawyers Full Out.
The case of Freluont Ucnjamin against
Arch ColTman is still on trial at Avoca , In
this case llcnjamin claims fi.filX ) fee for at
tending to ColTinan's interests in a prelimi
nary hearing only. On the part of CotTinan
the claim is resisted on the ground that he
has paid Henjamin all that hcwascntitlcd to ,
that the fee demanded is exhorbltant , and
worse than all , that Benjamin , after being
discharged from the case , went over to the
enemy and not only revealed to the prosecu
tion the secrets of his client , but tried to em
ploy attorneys to prosecute Coffman. Among
the' witnesses for Coffman was Askwith ,
Benjamin's old partner. Judge Thornell ,
who was prosecuting attorney in the Coffman
case , was called in as a witness. John Y.
Stone , whom Benjamin tried to employ to
prosecute Coffman in the case , was also on
the stund. There seems to be a good deal of
interest taken now in the affairs of the old
law firm of Benjamin & Askwith. The two
lawyers have fallen out , and there are some
spicy stories being told , each on the other.
A move is mudc to have Askwith disbarred ,
and there are whisperings that like proceed
ings may be commenced against Benjamin
when this case is through.
