Judge Lettun aaid.
"J think this contract was made entirely
outside of the provisions of the franchise
mdiiiance, and I am unable to see any
sol nd reason for the holding that "the obli

waa changed, reduced, qualified and limited'
by the hew oi dinanoe."
The contract in Question provided that
the' gat company should furnish lights to
the city at the rate of S2S per lamp per
yaf. f The ordinance providing for the con
tram was attacked on the grounds that
il had nut -been fiubUs'ied two weeks before
passage and because It violated the pro
visions of the franchise. The old contract
provided for lamm for I2fi a year and in
the franchise was the clause that the company-should
bid on the street lighting as
'(fun aa required by the council.

In reply 1 beg to thank you for your
Interest in keeping these grounds In good

be able to notice the dirty condition In
front of the auditorium, whlrh 1 under
stand is under your charge, and that you
will prevent the collection of disease breed
ing filth in that very prominent part of
It is true that there has been a pile of
brush or perhaps 'more on these ground,
at various times, Inasmuch as we have
to pile this rubbish until we are able to
collect a wagon load to haul off.
We Janitors work about sixteen to eigh
teen hours a day tnd if you would have the
city of Lincoln construct electric lights at
the corners of the grounds as promised
I we would be able to work loncer hours
and thus keep the grounds cleaner. And If
you would wee to it that the people of
Lincoln refrain from throwing their whis
key and beer bottles on the capitol grounds
it would save us much time, as we usually
have to devote a good portion of the
morning to collecting these bottles.
In conclusion 1 simply desire to say, that
if you will attend to the business for which
you were employed, and In addition call
the attention of the city authorities to the
conditions prevalent in the business part
of town and the streets, you will have
less time to complain of the work of an old
soldier, who with his assistant have the
best kept public lawn in the city.

Steps Down aid "Out Following
" GRAND ISLAND. Neb., May 5. (Special
Telegram.) Late this afternoon George
Poell, county clerk, tianded in hi resigna
tion. Mr. Poell was declared Tuesday to
have raised certain receipt of employees
in hia office and thus to have retained
fees unrightfully. The day after the in
vestigation beran Poell turned over JTiOO
of excess fee that had been retained by
him for saveral years.
The reeignation came as the result of a
conference with Supervisor Sievera, F. W.
Ashton, Poell'a . attorney and W. H.
Thompson. The majority members of the
board who are democrats. Indicated plainly
that had the resignation not been offered
it wouli have been Insisted upon. Poell
is also a democrat.
Richard Buenr, who wa a candidate for
the democratic nomination at the last
primary, wa chosen by the majority
member aa the uccessor. H will take
charge of the office as soon as he nun
j qualify. In his resignation Mr. Poell
ciaim he ha turned In every dollar right
fully belonging to the county and asks
for the Investigation of the rest of his
term of offloe.
It is Bald In Poell' behalf that he raised
the receipt to cover up the shortcomings
of some one else In his office, though thi
is generally discredited.
As evidence that there was nothing poli
tical in the ordering of investigation, it is
clte-d that this was done on the motion of
a republican member. The members of
the minority acquiesced in the appoirt
ment of the democratic successor.
