TUet city, can-manufacture ita own Tticctricity for its own uso as light iitld power. This Is the proposal to bo bade to- the City Council by Water iSJommlssloner HcrahejrWelch. Tho Uroblom k of ifdver' for the now .Humps at the -city water Btation and auxiliary station iif tho south part of town is yet to bo Bolved. The bid of the North Platte Light and IJower Co. Jot furnishing electricity to drive Uio 'Dumps is five cents a kilowatt. Ac cording to tho roports ot othor water stations with equipment similar or less efficient than that in tho. .local powor station, olectricity is made for less than two cents a kilowatt measured at the switchboard. Comparison of costs and equipment convince those who are studying tho question that two cents will be adequate to pay tho entire cost of producing electricity. A dynamo for generating this cur rent would coat probably in the neigh borhood of ten or twelve thousand dol lars. It is proposed to run this dyno sao with steam from the boileqapnow in tho station. Since somo of tho pumps to bo connected with this pow er are for emergency use only It would follow that tho current could be used for streeet lighting, enabling tho city to maintain cluster lights and elec troliers on tho main streets at a cost Which would bo only a small part of he cost when furnished from the reg ular sources. I Mr. Welch will propose Uio installa" tion of the jlynamo becausQ it Is a part i of his business to acquaint tho Mayor . and Council with the best practices of . other cities. Ho is now . collecting in formation as to costs and these fig-1 nrcs will bo available before long. The Council will have this Information 'aJcd boforo It and after delibcra ' on will decide as to its value. There 'ay be some legal matters to attend to before final actlpn can be taken as it Is bettor to take care of such matters before they come up in the courts, t-::o:: SPANISH TCAIIJVEXE11AN8,.
