governor. Prince's reply waa that there
could be no situation In which the governor
could know what the people want better
than (hey know for themselves. The board
as demanded In both party platforms was
to be strictly a nonpartisan affair, but
Prince succeeded In getting his bill Re
lented from the four. The fact that It
makes the board elective makes It merely
theoretically nonpartisan. The only dissent
ing votes came from Matrau and Jones.
Nebraska Sand Pit Located.
The committee on mines and minerals,
of which Evans of Adams Is chairman,
submitted a report which the house re
fused to take seriously. The report waa
a section culled from soma geography of
ehraxka telling of the mineral resources
tif the gieat and glorious state. The house
gladly accepted the report since It made no
recommendations, and Mockett offered a
resolution that It was now the sense of the
house that It was fully advised of the
place where the gentleman from -Adams
got his Large quantity of "sand," The
laughter and applause which greeted the
resolution showed that the Evans filibuster
has Mot yet been forgotten.

COUNCIL NAMES A GAS PRICE
Offer of $22 a Lamp and No Interest
1$ Declared Final.
LAWYERS DELIVER OPINIONS
( oaneel for omoaay I rfte Arbitra
tion to Avoid Ks prose of Mdaa
tlon Many Are Opposed
The city council, without a dissenting
vote, submitted an offer of $23 a lamp per
year, without Interest, to meet the offer
of the Omaha Gag company, which seeks
to compromise Its claims against the city
on a basis of $.'7 ft lamp per year and In
terest. The council's offer came yesterday aft
ernoon after testimony had been Intro
duced and arguments made In the special
hearing to effect a compromise If possible.
The gas company will be given time to
reply to the council's ultimatum. A reso
lution, embodying the $23 price will be In
troduced Tuesday night by Councilman
Lee Bridges, who made the motion yester
The afternoon session of tbe hearing was
given over to arguments. T. W. Black
burn, W. A. Glider and David O'Brien pro
tested against any compromise, advising
the council to let tha gas company carry
Its claims to the district court.
Attorneys Herdman and Connell for the
gas company pleaded the pause of the
company, suggesting that ft compromise
should ba reached If possible to avoid the
expense of litigation.
I. J. Dunn, assistant city attorney, spoke
at length on the legal phase of the situa
tion without committing he cly'e position.
C. J. Smyth told the council thst the
gas company would recover for Is services,
but it could only recover the actual cost
attending the service. Smyth cited su
preme court decisions to sustain his point.
The council's offer of compromise came
after an Informal session and was based
on the figures submitted by Charles F.
Crowley, gas commissioner, who said the
maximum price for the service should be
$24 a lamp per year and the minimum $22,
and on the statement of Mr. Dunn that
the company was entitled to no Interest
over the amount In litigation.
Council Will Stand Pat.
The council declares It will stand pat
on the $-2 offer. If the company does not
want to take this amount It can go lines
the court and recover what It can, the
Earlier in the day the council members
decided at an Informal caucus to offer the
company $23 a lamp with 2 per cent In
terest, but after argument they decided on
the lower prices.
The gas company, through Frank Ham
ilton, its president, submitted Its first
offer of a compromise Friday morning,
when It agreed to aettle tha claims against
the city for street lighting for the last five
years on the basis of $27 a lamp per year
trowley on Stand.
Gas Commissioner Crowley was Dut on
the stand during the morning and testified
that the maximum amount which should
be paid per lamp was '$24 ft
year and the minimum about tan
Crowley bases these figures on mainte
nance, labor and gas. Crowley declared
mai gas snouid not cost more than M
cents a thousand feet and thftt the com
pany would make a fair profit at this fig
ure. Based on 20,000 cublo feet of gas per
year to each lamp, the cost of gas would
run $16 a year, which, added to the main
tenance and labor charge, would maka the
total cost $24. Crowley did not advise this
ugure as a compromise price, but stated
that in his opinion it was the maximum
amount which should be allowed.
On cross-examination the attorneys for
the gag company went Into Crowley's fig
ures at length on the cost of gas produc
tion. After they had put him throuah a
stiff examination, the company waa In
vited to put its own expert on the stand
to refute the statement of the company.
But the attorneys again refused, saying
that what could be collected for gaswas
simply ft legal question. The gas com
pany's attorneys reiterate that they would
stand for the franchise price ot $1.26 a
thousand cublo feet.
Intimations that the gas company might
make further offers of compromise waa
made possible by ft query from Mr. Hamil
ton, who wanted to know If the council
had agreed on the highest price per lamp
It would pay. The council refused to maka
any reply to tbe query.
