Remarkable results hnva been accom
plished by the Omaha Electric Light and
Power Co. In restoring Us electrical ser
vice. Over 150 men have been working
night and day slnco tho dlsai-ter and
despite the hnndicap of the snowstorm
havo succeeded In tearing away entangle
ments and connecting up hundreds of
homes that hardly hoped for lights so
soon. , ,
Already service has been restored to
practically tho entire south end of the
city, the West Farnam district and pretty
well to the whole section southeast of the
storm path. Also service Is now had In
the north of the , city to Cuming street
and quite generally to the northeast of
tho tornado line.
Officials of tho company announce that
they expect to havo the service connected
up to Benson and Dundee tonight or not
later than tomorrow morning and to re
store service to Florence, Fort Omaha
and Other points by Wednesday noon.
"Wo aro working under great disad
vantage because of the storm," said
I. B. Zlmman of the company, "but wo
realize the gravity of tho situation, es
pecially In tho case of hospitals and other
places where sick and wounded are quar
tered, and are working desperately and
at all hazards, to restore our service We
also appreciate tho urgent need of our
service to those manufacturing concerns
using our power and that Is also being
taken care of with all haste."
