Mr. Carnegie thinks thnt gentleman

capital, without family influence and
without college education. It i they

THE CONTRACT FOR LIGHT
ING THE STREETS.
L. N. COX IS BY FAR THE LOWEST
BIDDER FOR IT.

Neely I'uaucceiwtrul To
Hum All Nlifht.
Five thousand dollars for sixty lights
ier year is what the city is to pay for its
stre-t lighting for the next two years lw
gimR.ig with October 1 next. Hereto
fore forty-two lights have been URed and
they have cost something like $4,000.
More than this they have been run on a
moon schedule. That is they have not
been turned on on nights when the moon
shone. With the new system they are to
run every night and all night.
The meeting ol the Board of Aldermen
Inst evening to open bids and uwnrd the
contract for the lighting of the streets by
electricity for the next two years did not
begin uhtil nearly ten o'clock. One of the
mcmlicrs was absent and the Board
waited his aptcarancc. The first bid
ocncd was thnt of the Asheville Light
and Power company. It offered to fur
nish any numlicr of 2,000 candle power
lights, to lie located nt the discretion of
the Board for $1X50 a month for each
light for a (irriod of two years. The
Bonrd were to lie the judges of the effi
ciency ol the service. The company also
agreed to submit to any equitable reduc
tion in case the contract was not com
plied with. The only stipulation wus
that in case the Board should decide to
have more than fifty lights they should
he given a reasonable time for the pur
chase of the necessary insulations. It
wns signed by T. W. I'atton and Secre
tary B. M. Jones.
The next bid oiened was that of K. I.
Foster and T. C. McNeely. They would
light the streets for a eriod of five years
beginning with October 1, with clcet-ic
lights not less than sixty in niiailier and
2,000 candle power for $5,400 a year.
These figures were based on the moon
schedule. If the lights were run every
night and nil night they would charge
$8 extra xr light. They would also
erect four towers of approved design ntn
cost of $120 each. The rcmninder of thc
liglus were to lie swung from poles tot he
center of the street. They stipulated that
their projierty was to be free from munici
The bid which wus the lowest and
which will be accepted, if it will stand
the close scrutiny ol the light committee,
wus that of Mr. L. N. Cox, of Washing
ton. He offered to run sixty lights of
nominal 2,000 candle power every night
nnd nil night for $5,000 cr annum,
with $7 extra for each additional
light. Mr. Cox also wanted to sell the
city an electric light plant. He would
furnish the city with two dynamos with
a capacity of fifty lights of 2,000 candle
power each, in a building to U-crectcd by
the city for $0,500. Then followed a list
f figures showing how the city could get
their lights for almost nothing, but alter
consideration it was decided to accept his
bid to light the city if everything was

peal to the Mayor.
"I'm more of nn object of pity than of
censure, your honor."
Thnt wus the remark made by James
llcnnet ns he stood licforc the bar in the
Mayor's court this morning and begged
pitcously for mercy. He had been found
drunk Inst evening and taken to jail and
when he mudc his npcnraucciii thceourt
room this morning he wus a sorry look
ing object. His clothes were old and torn
in many places, and his face wore a beard
of a week's growth. When his name was
called he admitted his guilt, and nt once
began an abject pica for his release.
"I have no money," he said. "I cannot
work, nnd if you will let me go this time
I will never be up licforc yon again."
"But," began Mayor Blanton, "sup
pose you get drunk?"
"But 1 will not get drunk again, "broke
in the prisoner. "1 will get out of town
in two hours. I am a physical wreck. It
don't mutter how I heenmc so but I nm.
I cannot work nnd 1 have no money."
For ten minutes he made an urgent u
cal for the leniency of the court.
"You ought to lie n lawyer," remarked
Mayor IUanton when he had finished.
"You would have been a good one."
"Oh! there's lots of things I ought to
lie that I'm not," returned the prisoner,
ns he settled buck in his sent.
After the other cases were disposed of
he again took the floor. It ended 1 1 his
pica's iK-ing grunted and he liiiqied from
the court room.
Dick lohuson pleaded guilty of being
drunk nnd wus lined $5, nnd on n second
warrant charging him with riotous nnd
