Cliff Turner's for Spring Hats
The position taken by the Daily
Transcript in Thursday's issue on
the municipally-owned elcctr'c
light plnnt proposition, seems to
meet with the emphatic approba-
tion of evry thinking man and
woman in the city; at least the ap-
probation of the many with whom
the Transcript man has talked. It
is the universal thought that Nor-
man should not, at this time
go to the extreme of voting large
sums of money to install a new
plant, unless it is impossible to
make equitable arrangements with
the present electric light company.
Until the conferences of the May-
or and members of the city coun-
cil with the light officials fail of
Mny results in adjusting differ-
ences, agitation for a municipally
ow&nd plant is premature. Some-
thing will be doing along this line
; next week.
No More Juries
Until March 17th
The district court has been
"marking tims" since the conelu
sion of the Jay case, and there
will be little doing until March 17,

White et al, State vs. W. 0. Wil-
liamson, ct al and State vs. San-
