Van Arsdoll of Vitielutid who hud
elitirge of tlie wont whan the brunch
was projected ill 1890 has received the
1 appointment of chief of construction
and left Tuesday for headquarter* at

sfieciflcaiions. Mr. Van Arsdoll under
stand* the matter in detail and under
Ills efficient management the work
will lie pushed rapidly. 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. Last
id-hi (lie city counsel in extia session
met and passed an ordinance granting
the Northern Pacific the right-of-way
through the city. The committee lit
charge of subscription to secure the

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

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

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

feasible and the needs of the city de
mand such an improvement.

Home misapprehension lias arisen
over the Identity of the Night Owl

club of roynters. They represent some
of the liest citizens of the city and
wish it distinctly understood that no
