Word comes from Kendrick that a contractor in that locality lias received orders to supply '200,000 ties and that 00,000 of these were already to move from Bear Creek to the reservation line. Everything is moving to perfect plans and remove all obstacles.

Î j Jj 4 j ^ Î New Light and Power Plant. D. M. While and 8. H. Reed, presi dent and secretary of the Lewiston Light Co. are working now to perfect plans for a ucw organization to operate a light and power plant to I*» located on Asotin Creek, above the Vineland water ditch. They have filed u water right on enough water to generate u 1000 horse power, and expect to transmit the electrical power to Lew. tston, to he used in lighting and oper ating mills ami other machinery. The distance from Lewiston is eleven miles, and the estimated cost of erect ing tlie plant $20,000. Pro . E. Darrow, of tlie Pullman Agricultural college, an electricul engineer of prominence and experience is to be here next Mon day to look over tlie proposition and a 4É> A ♦ make estimate* and plans for the pro posed plant. The present light plant in Lewiston is now taxed beyond its capacity and is not aide to supply the needs. It is lieing oiterated at a heavy expense for fuel. The cost for wood now is $3500 tier year. This saving alone would pay Interest, on u $35,000 investment and allow ample power to light tlie city and operate its mills and machinery for years to come. The hydraulic, plant proposed will lie of l(HK) horse power capacity. One electrical machine only will he put in at first and about 300 hoise power de livered at Lewiston. The Lewiston Flouring Mills, the Lewiston Water Company und others mailer enterprises have signified their intention to use the power when tlie plant is put In ■>|iera:ion. Tlie plan sit-ins perfectly feasible and the needs of the city de mand such an improvement. The Night Owl Club. Home misapprehension lias arisen over the Identity of the Night Owl dub. They have tu en re|smed as a club of roynters. They represent some of the liest citizens of the city and wish it distinctly understood that no dissolute characters either masked or unmasked will lie allowed in tlie ball room. The hull will lie a German mask, everybody present desiring, whether masked or not is, entitled to dance Tickets 75 cents. Supper served at the hull. 25 cents. D.Ê Cur.
