The following Item clipped from the Montrose Journal, shows that the city city up the river is there with the lanterns and has applied for a charter. The I^antern Club which was or ganized in Keokuk since the accident at the power house is becoming quite popular. The streets are being light ed by members of the club hanging lanterns !n front of their houses, and the membership now numbers over 500. It would be well for Montrose to organize a lantern club as we never have any street lights and on these ,, dark nights it is pretty hard to get around_ We would llke to see every enterprising citizen hang lanterns In front of their homes and places of business until bed time Friday night and keep it up during the winter and see what a difference it will make. At LaPorte, the lighting plant burn ed down Wednesday morning and the city is in darkness. That city will be without lights for sixty days and a branch of the Keokuk Lantern Club will be organized there for the bene fit of the people. Other cities, nearby, are consider ing the forming of branches of the Keokuk Lantern Club and Keokuk will in time become famous as the head office of what promises to be come a national organization. li °ui°nS h- not made up correctly of acid and al ines.

To the Editor of The Gate City: In this time of distress and darkness due to the accident to the electric light plant I venture to make a suggestion as to the temporary lighting of the streets. Anyone who has been out these dark nights haB noticed how much more light than he expected a single lantern of ths coal oil variety gives when sus pended as some enterprising and pub lic spirited citizens have suspended their lanterns, over the street inter seco.ons. Would it not be possible for the city to purchase enough lanterns and pro vide a man to light, one lantern for each former arc light. The poles are there with the means of hoisting up the lantern, and all that is required is a man to do the lighting and cleaning. It just is at the Intersections that one wants the light, to make the gutter crossings safe. A single lantern will do a great deal to dispel the gloom at these intersec tions for the next six weeks or two months. At the end of that time when the new engine Is installed the lan terns can be auctioned and most, of the cost of lantern be recovered. The city is saving from the light rentals, which Is of course not now being paid to the electric company, enough to do this lighting, probably a cheaper light than the arc lights. While the lantern clifb is all very well it ls a duty which will not be well or methodically performed, to light the streets with private lanterns. And when a few have been stolen from public spirited citizens the enthusiasm will subside, and no light put out. I notice in my neighborhood that al ready by midnight there are but two lights to be seen in many blocks awl tho streets are pvactlcally unllghted. City fathers to the rescue. CITIZEN.
