PLACED ON FILE
Proposition Made at Request of the
Council Turned Down Would
WOULD OPERATE JUST AS OAS
The city council committee of the
whole voted to place on file, at least
for the present, the contract pro
rcral received a week ago from the
Omaha Electric Light and Power
company for lighting of streets for
five years. It was proponed to re
quest the light company to submit
a proposition for the sale of equip
ment to the city and a rate for cur
rent for the street lamps.
Representatives of the Northwest
Federation of Improvement clubs,
United Improvement clubs, Druid
Hill Improvement club, Fontenelle
Home Improvement club and the
Lincoln Heights Improvement club
protested against the city entering
li to the proposed five-year contract.
One of the propositions offered by the
Improvement clubs wss that the city own
Its lighting equipment and buy current
from the light company until such time
as the city might have a municipal plant.
It was proposed to submit a bond propo
sition at the April primary election.
Reaaeated toy City.
Mnyor Dahlman said; "I want It un-
dersiod that this proposition of the light
company wss made at the request of the
city council. I don't care whether the
contract Is let or not. but If It Is not let
' I went the people to Know the farts, and
to place the responsibility where it be
longs. I know we need more lights.
Omaha Is not well lUhted. It will take
nearly five years to g-t a municipal plant
In operation. Under this contract pro
posal of the light company w could get
nearly S00 more electric lamp at the
same yearly expenae we are now pay
ing. I am for municipal ownership, and I
believe the way to handle the electric
light situation would be to acquire the
present plant through condemnation pro
ceedings. I think we have some rights
also in the street railway company, and
I believe e are golnj to take that plant,
Roller Wants Radartlna.
Commlesioner Butler disagreed with
the mayor by stating that a start should
be made now toward municipal street
lighting. He said It Is not nernsxary
to wait for any action by the legislature.
He proponed the city should install some
lamps and use current from the Flor
ence water plant. He alleged that while
the contract proposal of the light con
tract appeared favorable on the face of

used under the proposed new system it

current used for the old atyl of lampa.

contract until the light company offers
a reduction of rates for householders,"
said Mr. Butler.

Commissioner Jardlne brought the dis
cussion to a close by moving that the
contract be placed on file and the light
company asked to present a new propo
sition, contemplating ownership of equip
ment by the city. v
At the present time the city own the

During the discussion Improvement
Club repreeentatlvea stated that they
would be willing to go another year or
