FORM NEW LIGHTING COMPANY
Locil Men Propose to Bid for Contract
When Preaeat One Expires.
INTEND TO ERECT PLANT IN THE CITY
Dissatisfaction Over the Fact that
Present Com pa ay Gets All Its Car
rent from Omaha and Em
Although every effort to keep the matter
quiet at this time has been made by those
Interested, It has leaked out that a number
of the prominent business men of the city
are planning to organize a' local gas and
electric lighting company with a view to
being a bidder for the city's lighting when
the present contract with the Citizens' Oas
and Electric company expires.
The present contract with the Citizens'
Gas and Electric company went Into effect
July 1, 1901, and was for a term of five
years, so that It has but three and a half
years to run. The contract was originally
secured by the Bluff City Gas and Elec
tric Light company, organized by Thomas
Bowman and other lorel men whn trans.
n v i j , . ,
'erre1 tnelr 'rnehlse "d contract to the
Citizens' Gas and Electric company, a
company organized under the laws ot New
I ....... .
Much dissatisfaction has always been
expressed by the business men of the clt?
because the Citizens' company, Instead I
the outside employes.
The new company, It Is said, not enly '
proposes to engage In the gas and electric :
lighting business, but Intends to also fur
nish power for manufacturing plants and
beat for business and residence houses.
The company plans to erect extensive elec- I
trlc light and gas plants' and will be a local '
organization In every sense of tbe word
If the plans now under conslderztlon are
fulfilled, It Is said, the new company will
be prepared to supply gas for both domes
tic and lighting purposes at a material re
duction from the rate now obtained by the
Citizens' company. The ever Increasing
demand for gas for domestic purposes at a
reasonable rate Is said to. bave prompted
the business men Interested In tbe new
venture to plan on organizing a local com
pany. In addition, It Is stated, every dollar
of capital stock will be subscribed by local
While the whole matter Is said at pres
ent to be In an embryonlo state. It Is
stated on reliable authority that early In
the new year steps will be taken to bring
tbe organization of the company to a con-
summation.,. ' One ' or more' well known
bankers are said to be back of the pro
posed new lighting company.

HEW IMPLEMENT WAREHOUSE
Ohio Cultivator Company Decides to
Establish Branch In
Council Bluffs is now assured of another
large wholesale agricultural Implement
house. The Ohio Cultivator company,
which has heretofore only maintained an
office in this city and transacted Its busi
ness through the Union Transfer company,
will establish a large branch warehouse
Through Its local manager, 1). I. Hoch,
the company yesterday consummated the
negotiations for the purchase of the largo
brick warehouse at the corner of 8lxth
street and Twelfth avenue. The building
was originally erected by the McFarland
Carriage company, but for some time past
bas been occupied as a storage warehouse
by the Fuller-Johnson company. Tbe Fuller-Johnson
company having organized a
separate local company under the name ot
the Fuller Johnson-Shugart company,
will next spring occupy the large ware
house on South Main street, now being
erected for it on the old Deere-Wells site
by Warehouse Construction company No. 2.
The warehouse building acquired by the
Ohio Cultivator company Is a basement and
two-story brick structure, with a frontage
of fifty-five feet and a doptb ot 110 feet.
As It was originally constructed as a ware
house for vehicles such as handled by tbe
McFarland Carriage company, a much
lighter grade ot goods than the agricultural
Implement stock bandied by tbe Ohio Cul
tivator company, the building will have to
be strengthened, and In fact almost en
tirely remodeled. '
The Ohio Cultivator company had for
some time past been considering the ad
visability of establishing a large warebouso
in this section and discontinuing the band
ling ot Its business through the Tranafer
company. Failure to secure a suitable site
In this city had almost decided the com
. pany on moving to Omaha, when tbe oppor
i tunlty to secure the property at tbe corner
of Twelfth avenue and Sixth street, with
Its excellent trackage facilities, presented
Itself and gives to Council Bluffs one more
I large agricultural Implement bouae.

tbe advisability of erecting a steel bridge

on the less expensive structure. Flagler's
bid on tbe steel bridge waa $9 IS and that
ot Wise $890.

ment from Banks.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE3 MOINES, Dec. 9. (Special.) In
the report ot President M. J. Wragg of the
Iowa State Horticultural society at Its
thirty-seventh annual convention, he called
attention to tbe necessity for a complete
horticultural exhibit from Iowa at the
Louisiana Purchase exposition at St. Louis.
The president said he had been unable to
find out how much the Iowa commission
Is willing to set apart for the horticultural
branch of the Iowa exhibit. An appropria
tion of $125,000 bad been secured to prop
erly display Iowa's agricultural, mineral.
Industrial and educational affairs. He
spoke for harmony and co-operation.
Four prominent members of the society
died the past year, namely, N. K. Fluke,
F. N. Chase, William M. Beardahear and
Samuel Parka. From the last legislature an
additional appropriation ot $1,600 a year
bad been secured. President Wrsgg sug
gested that It be used in educational work.
He would suggest that instead ot having
an annual report In a large volume It be
divided Into' twelve parts and be Issued
once a month. The educational work Is
most Important and there should be con
tinued efforts to bave tbe schools In
erested. The work of the experiment eta
tlons hss been greatly Increased the paat
year and this especially In pollination.
There has been an Increase In tree plant
ing in Iowa, but the past season, with
thirty-four inches of rainfall in the grow
ing months, against sixteen Inches tbe
previous year, waa (the most disastrous ot
President Wragg recommended a change
In the fruit districts of Iowa, making tbe
southern two tiers of counties instead ot
the southern three a district, and adding
one tier to the northern district. He
would also put Bremer county in the
Secretary Greene, In bis report, urged
that $200 annually be appropriated for add
ing to the specimens in the society's mu
seum and a like amount for books. He
would cease distribution of reports free,
but would have bulletins Issued regularly
for free distribution.
The usual committees Were appointed and
representatives from Illinois and Wiscon
sin were admitted. The program was taken
up and papers presented.
State Farmers' Institute.
While the program of the State Farmers'
Institute was short, tbe papers were ot a
high character and as there was abundant
time for discussion the session wss de
clared by those present to be a most In
teresting one. President Fraaler of Bloom
field was not present and tbe meeting was
presided ovor, by Vice President Morrow
of Union county. Four papers were read
at tbe morning session. '
Henry Parsons, of Rockwell City told of
bis experience' In maintaining the fertil
ity of tbe soil oh a farm devoted to grain
raising. He preferred disking tbe ground
before clowlnc. ' and 'this in addition to
liberal fertilization. He sowed clover with
grain for the purpose of . plowing it under
the next year.
W. W. Morrow of Afton, on the subject
of procuring a perfect stand of corn, of
fered suggestions as to either fall plowing
r the spring plowing aa near planting
time as possible.' On fall plowing he used
the disk or harrow before planting. He ad
vised early planting, but would not plant
before the ground Is warm.
An interesting paper was read by H. C.
Wallace on winter wheat, in which he re
lated the experience of himself In raising
winter wheat on farm seven miles south
of Des Moines. Eleven hundred bushels
were raised on 25.6 acres, or 15.6 bushels
per acre. The average price per bushel
for several years was 66.8 cents and the
proceeds were $8.88 per acre. This was
better than oats or corn and yet tbe rec
ords show that there bas been a steady
decline in winter wheat growing in Iowa
for many years. He pointed out what good
winter wheat can be grown in all tbe south
part of the state.
W. J. konnedy of the State college dis
cussed the points to be considered In
economio production of beef. He said the
successful farmer ot the future would be
one with beef cattle, dairy cows, good
bogs an all-round farmer.
This afternoon James Atkinson of Des
Moines read a paper on forage crops, W. B
Barney of Hampton bad a paper on tbe
silo tor the Iowa farmer and P. O. Holden

ment of seed corn.
