Brief Review of the LlRhthig Con
tract Fiplit, Which la to Be Dis
posed of Tonight.
What will piohably In- Ihi' tn-t-
lll-!'-Sllim lllfetlllg llf CoUIH'lls in
ninny months It Hip Jnlnl session t ltd t
will he held Mils evening.
Wlinl has awakened llie Intel cut of
the nubile 'he extent I hut In In
be observed In the places iilinilt llu
city where topics me most discussed
In lite lighting contract, w-hli-h Is to
bo disposed "f linn My tonight.
t'li In thli year, the l.iickuwiinnn
Vnlley Hleelrlc Mh I. company hus
had nn opposition In obtaining the
contract I'm- illtiinitiiiting tin streets
nr the city. It hits liml the'ileUI to
Itself nnd tin- disposition "f the f-nn-Itfiet
wis ii mere inn t lor (if procedure
each year.
This your, however, u 'rival np
iv fired, The Wolsbueli i-ninpniiy, the
maker nr the gas lumps which now
have mi llitornutloniil reputation,
seuglii mi entrance with ('urbotidulc,
anil Ihi-'iich Ihe I'nrhomlnlc (las l-oiii-p.iny,
bids wore submitted to the
lotini-lls mi Monday evening. May l..
The Joint llghl and waler eonimlttce
I i.iik up the bids, hut the proposl-lli-.ns
coming from the two cmnpnnloH
-the gas roinpany and the electric
llcht corporation weie too mneh for
the rommllloe In Intelligently dispose
or In the limited time tit Its disposal
rftid Ih'-y begged that the awarding of
Hie f-ontiviel no over until at least two
works, when both branches would
have a meet Inc. This was aceordlng
Jy done, and tonight the joint com
mittee, after having canvassed the
subject in all its details, will present
its report to councils.
In the meantime, the light contract,
lias probably been Hie most discussed
topic of the projects now before coun
cils. From the start, the Wolsbueh
iVimpany has shown bow earnest it is
lo Install Its method of illumination
In I'arboiidale. From Hie outset, It
was anxious to show the councllmen
and Itho citizens Hie effect of the
Welfdiaeh lights and after a public
display lot the question of Hie etllclen
r.v of the ilhimlnant and its advan
tages, if any. fiver the arc light.
Accordingly, lights were placed at
s-"von different points In the city and
Mere put in operation over three
weeks and have been burning since
then. There have been numerous ox
picssioiiK of opinion on the new light,
but they have been so varied that one
could sc-ircely draw any conclusions.
Another public project In which
there Is nn intense interest Is the
municipal water plant. This, too, is
to come up in councils tonight to be
disposed of dually, and It is safe to
say Hint the couniil .linmb.irs will bo
inadequate to ncconiniodate the ex
pected outpouring of citiezns to hear
the discussions on these two Import
ant measures. '
While the report of the light coiii
mitlee is In the keeping of the chair
man, yet It will be n safe venture fo
say that a change is llkel In-the
method of illuminating Hie city, and
that some of the streets, at least, will
likely have a now glow of light.
Tho Higli School Commencement
Will Be Held on June 14.
The largest graduating class in the

smaller ratio than usual. Tho larger
number of boys is due largely to the

A good suggestion was mado by

The suggestion made by t 'omnia li

eorded iu the annals of fratricidal
The remnant of our once mighty host
of self-denying patriots feel and know
what sacrllices were required of men
and women during the trying days
when secession was rampant.
While life last's they need not be told
of the privations and physical endur
ance of tho noble men who exhibited
the most unselfish patriotism when
good red blood was exacted as a vicari
ous atonement for a great national
To peipetuate the glorious history of
ihe righteous cause for which our vall
um snwieivs and sailors so nobly con
tended; to show to tin1 world our ven
eration for tile memory of our sacred
dead, who freely gave their lives for
the laud lliey loved; to bless posterity
by the weight of their potent influence;
to aid deserving comrades iu distress,
and to help the families of those de
ceased, the Grand Army of the Repub
lic was organized,
All soldiers, sailors and marines
(tualllied to join our order should deem
it an honor to have their names en
rolled in tlio Grand Army of the Re
public, and they should deem It a privi
lege to help sustain an organization
of tho rank and llio of tho most in
telligent men over disciplined to meet
llio shock of battle, and which .stands
unique in the world's history.
Search the annals of events from
Ihe time of Noah until the year A. D.
Ie6ti and you will fall to ilnd a record
of any body, of discharged soldiers, or
sailors who ever conferred benefits nn
mankind by concentrated' effort. You
will also find that the myriads of men
who have shed blood on battle fields
for spoils, glory and conquest, have
no roll of honor like the men who
saved the Plilon and .sanctilled our con
stitution. During the last twelve months two
of the comrades, within our precinct
have gone to the bivouac of .silence:
Samuel !', Goodrich, tCompany H. Ono
