The city council spent an hour last night
In ttperlul texalon discussing the street
lighting situation and wound up by arriv
ing at the conclusion that It could do
nothing but await the completion of re
quire at the Omuha plunt.
Councllmen Younkernian and Maloney for
the Are and light committee reported that
they had vlsltod the electric light plant In
Omaha yesterday morning In company with
City Klcctriclan Bradley, and as n resu.t
of their Investigations they felt certain

oould uhdor the circumstances to fur-
nlHh this city with lights. They stated
that Manager Holdrege had assured them
that conditions would be materially Im
proved In about three days, but that It
would be two weeks at least before the
plant would be In full running order again.
Manager English of the Citizens' Gas
and Electric company explained the situ
ation across the river and assured the
councllmen that his company was giving
the bent service possible under the cir
cumstances. The reason the- street arc
lights were not turned on earlier In the
night, he explained, was due to the fact
thut the commercial lighting absorbed so
much of the present limited power.
Councilman Wallace suggested that the
company " cut out Its commercial llgnt
lng while the present conditions lasted and
give the city more street lights. This,
Manager English declared, was hard'.y
practicable at this season of the year, as
the stores were kept open evenings on ac
count of the Christmas trade.
Councilman Fleming suggested that If
the city could do without the street arc
lights In the fore part of the night. It
could do without them for the rest of the
Ight, and he thought It would be just as j

sume Its regular service not to have the
lights turned' on Bt all. Such a move, It
was suggested, might not meet with favor
by the police department, and the commit
tee on lire and light was Instructed to con
fer with the police department and ascer
tain if Its work would be hampered by
the lights not being turned on until ths
regular service was resumed. The commit
tee Is to report back at the meeting of the
city council next Monday night. That
Council Fleming's plan. If carried out,
will meet with much objection la certain,
as the general opinion seems to be that a
half loaf Is better than no bread at all,
and that street lights for part of the night
would be far better than no lights at all.
