in tho abovQ transfor indicates that North

was creditably rendered: Reading, Asa

oration, Geo. McMichael; quartet, A. A.

and Will Ormsby. The question debated
was "Resolved, that the U. S. govern
ment was to blame for the Indian out
break at Pine Ridge agency;" B.C. Davis
and Fred Elliott taking the affirmative
and H. S. Ridgley and A. A. Gilman the
negative. The decision was favorable
to the latter.
It is claimed by experienced persons
that potatoes pay better at twenty-five
cents per bushel than any crop the
farmer can raiee, but when they reach
sixty to eighty cents and often a dollar
per bushel, they can certainly be con
sidered a profitable crop. We beliove
that the farmers along tho North Platte
irrigation ditch are the most prosperous
of any in the county, and they undoubt
edly owe that prosperity to the fact that
they raise thousands of bushels of pota
toes. Why not make potato raising
more universal in Lincoln county?
Everybody Bhould attend the debate
and contest to be given by the L. L. A.
No. 985 at Keith's opera house, Monday

place "between Mr. Mothersaid and Mr.
Wessyl of Wallace and Geo. McMichael
and A. A. Gilman of North Platte. No
admission will be charged for the debate.
On Tuesday evening there will be three
contestants from Wallace, one which has
already won two medals, and seven con
testants of North Platte. The admission
for the contest will be 15 and 25 cents.
No one can afford to miss this. Every
body turn out and show the boys you are
jglfjifted in them.

where they succeeded in scaring up

THE ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE
Iieokina: After the Alum and

has been introduced iu the legislature at
Springfield, by Mr. Nohe. The bill is
intended to prevent the adulterations of
baking powders with Ammonia or Alum,
imposing proper penilties to enforce the
law, etc. This shows an earnest desire
onjtbe part of our representatives to pro
tect their constituents.
The Chicago Tribune, referring to the
'question- of legislature on Alum and
rAmmonia baking powders, says: "It deals
in a direct manner with an evil that
must be cut down."
Following is a partial list of the names

been examined and found to contain
either Ammonia or Alum. Many of the

Judge Church, grand commander of
the G. A. R. of Nebraska, gave his talk
on Andersonville to a crowed house on
Friday evening of last week. The Judge
started out by saying that he did not
propose to deliver a lecture or a formal
oration that he would only talk and
give his personal experience, of life in
the prison hills of the south during the
war. And he did talk. For two hours
ho held the audience spell bound with
his viviil portrayal of life and scenes
that came under his personal observa
tion in the prison pens. To the younger
portion of tho audience who knew only
of Andersonville in a dim and general
way, his description gavo new and un
dreamed of revelations. It was a story
which they never will forget. The

cruelty practiced on Siberians exiles. It
gave the young people a better idea of
what many an old veteran had endured
than could ever bo gained by reading
the story of the terrible strife in the
histories of the echools. There
was one very noticeable thing in the
talk of Judge Church nnd that was this.

Editor Tribune: In response to your
invitation to discuss the electric light
question, I will offer a few remarks. In
the first place there is no law permitting
a citv of our size to levy taxes to pay
private parties for lighting it with oilgas
or electricity, consequently there is no
use wasting time discussing franchisee or
making contracts witn private com
nonwu, at Tha fnllnwincr is the only
pautcuj WW. - " "
authority we have for lighting our city:
"An ant to authorize any city of the
second class in this state to establish,
maintain, one rate and control, a system
nf olectnc I ehts. and to nx rates or
rhnnren for the use of liehts and to pro
vide for the collection of such charges.
Be it enacted by the legislature of the
state of Nebraska:
Sfctios 1. Anv city ot tne secona
class in this state Bhall have the power
nnd is hnrebv authorized to establish
and maintain a Bystem of electric lights
far annh nitv nnrl thfi citV COUncil shall
have the power to levy a'tax not exceed
ing. fiv fSl mills on tne aoiiar, in any
one year for tho purpose of establishing,
extending ana maintaining aucu njoroiu
of electric lights.
Sec. 2. Where the amount of money
which would be raised by the levy pro
videdfor in section one of this act would
be insufficient to establish a system or
electric lights as contemplated herein, in
any city in this state, such city may issue
its bonds bearing not to exceed seven
nor rant interest, and maturing in twenty
years, but payable at any time- after the
expiration of ten years at the option of
the "city, for the purpose of raising a pum
system; provided, that the aggregate of
hnndn issued for such DurDose shall not
exceed two and one half per cent of the
taxable value of the property of such city
n shown hv the last nrevious annual
assessment; and provided further, that
no such bonds Bhall be issued by the
city council until the question of issuing
the same snail nave oeen buooiiluju wj
the electors of such city, and an election
hold for that Durpoee, notice of which
shall be given by publication in some
ra .... - - Jl A. . 1 .
newspaper publisnea m saia city anoant
twntv davs nrior to the date of said
election, and a majority of such electors
6hall have voted in favor ot issuing such
bonds; provided, no such election snail
be called with a petition Bigned by at
east ten resident freeholders from eacn
ward of said city, Bball bo presented to
the mayor and council asking that an
election be called for the purposes here
in provided. When any city has estab
lished a system of electric lights as here
in contemplated, the city council shall
have power to levy an annual tax of not
to exceed two (2 mills on the dollar of
the assessed valuation of the city tor
the liurposo ot maintaining, operating
and extending the same."
The balance of the act consists 01 tne
details. It is evident that we can levy
five mills on the dollar valuation which
will raise about $2500, and we can issue
S10.000in bonds making $12500 in all
which will establish an excellent incan
descent electric licrht svBtem. I am not
posted on electric lighting but I believe
we can have three distinct .kinds. The
arc which is only suitable for streets and
public buildings, the incandescent which
is suitable, to streets, public buildings
and private residences and the arc and
incandescent combined which i3 a very
expensive system. The arc system alone
is out of the question as it has been
tried once hero and failed. It is too
brilliant close to it and too shadowy a
distance off. It is too expensive to light
tho whole town well, but the incandes
cent could bo carried to the remotest
parts ot tho city as tho residents there
would want lights in their houses and
the same wire could be used for lighting
tho streets. Our city would look an
immense sight better and our people
would have more benefit to have an
incandescent light at every street cross
ing to tho outskirts of the town, than a
few arc lights hung in the business part
of the city.
I believe the desiro for electric lignts
is general and no time must be lost in
order to have the tax in this year's levy.
Tho revenue obtained from lighting
ards, shops and hotel of the U. P. rail
way, court house, school houses, hotels,
churches, stores and private dwellings
would iuny pay ior tne running ot tne
works so that we could get our streets
lit for nothing or only the cost of the
works. It is reported that the U. P. is
so favorable as to give free a location for
he works on its right ot way. Let us
have light. James Belton.
