final action was taken today and the fol

Two Companies now Ask for Street Railway
Franchise in Lewiston — An Ordinance was
Introduced Last Night
A petition was submitted to the council
last evening by James G. Trainer of Chi
cago and Fred T. Dubois of Blackfoot
asking for a Street railway franchise. An
ordinance was introduced by Alderman
Scully in conformity with the petition,
was read twice and referred to the com
mittee of the whole. Before any action
was taken by the committee in granting
the franchise the couucil decided to re
quest E- H. Libby of Vineland to appear
before them and make a statement of his
proposition in regard to a franchise at an
adjourned meeting Saturday night.
Early in May Mr. Libby petitioned the
council tor a franchise and the matter
was postponed upon the suggestion of
Mr. Dubois and his associates to await
developments in their Waha irrigation
and power scheme. Their action last
night is an affirmation of the fact that
they will push this project to an early
The ordinance as read provides for the
granting to James G. Trainer, of Chicago,
and Fred T. Dubo s, of Blackfoot, of a
franchise lor the construction, mainten
ance and operation or a street railway on
the following streets and alleys:
Commencing at the northwest corner
of section 32, township 35 north, range 5
east B. M.; thence extending northwest
erly direction along the Lewiston Lapwai
road to a point where the same intersects
with the Genesee road; thence north
along the Genesee road to the Northern
Pacific railway track ; thence commencing
again at a point where the Lewiston
Lapwai road intersects with the Genesee
road; thence running westerly along the
Lewiston-Lapwai road to Eighteenth
street; thence west along Main street to
Fifth street; thence north on Fifth street
to D street; thence west on D street to
First street; thence south on First street
to Snake River aveuue; thence south on
Suake river avenue to Third avenue
grade; thence along Third avenue grade
to Third avenfte; theuce along Third
avenue to Fifth street; theuce along Fifth
street to Sixth avenue; thence along Sixth
avenue to Seventh street; thence along*
Seventh street to Eleventh avenue; thence *
along Eleveutfiavenue to Eleveuth street; j
theuce along Eleveuth s' reel to Eighth
avenue; thence along Eighth avenue to
Tenth street; thence along Tenth street I
to Seventh avenue; thence along Seventh :
avenue to Seventh street, where junction
is made with line.''
The life of the franchise is 25 years.
The street railway is to he operated by
either animal power, steam, cable, gas j
electric or compressed air power. Under
the terms of tin. ordinance the grantees
or their assigns shall be allowed to charge
not exceeding the fare of 5 cents for one
continuous ride one vay on said railroad.
The line can lie operated by. animal,
electric, motor or cable jiower.
It is expected that the Vineland com j
pany will not lose this plum without a
contest and present indications point to
the fact that Lewistou will soon be pro
vided with street railroad transportation.
In connection with this street railroad
the Waha company expect to put in a '
motor car line lietween Lewistou and j
Waha for the purpose of handling the
fruit products of the Tammany sectiou lo
be irrigated hu«J furnishing a passengt r
service for the W'aha Lake which is a '
promising summer resort.
