A Town Which Under
riunicipai O w ner>
ship Gives a Good
Day Current==It is
Building the Town.
The town of Weatherford, which
is not as large ns Chandler recently
installed an electric light plant un-
der city ownership, and began with
a day service. 'Ploy did not have a
single contract to begin with except
that they pumped the water for the
city, but they kept the current going
day after day. Pretty soon this man
put in a fan and that man put in an
electric motor and it was not loug
before the day service was on a pay-
ing basis. Here is an object lesson
for the city of Chandler. The City is
paying Mr. Stettmund $184.00 per
month for the street lights. If the
City owned the plant this expense
would be cut off. The city is main-
taining a pumping station and has
steam up all day long. The same
steam used to pump the water will
also furnish a day current of electri-
city and it will not be long before the
city will be realizing nearly enough
revenue so that the expense of pump-
ing water will be bourn by the reve-
nue derived from day customers of
electricity. This is not the best part
of the proposition, however, if Chand-
ler wants to succed and be a city with
other cities it is the duty of the town
to offer equal facilities with other
towns and there iB not a single good
town in the state that is not provided
with a day service. As a town build-
er a day service Is indispensable.
A. J. Titus, a prominent attorney,
good roads advocate and Chairman
of the Democratic Committee ol Al-
falfa County, filed complaint against
Hip Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe
Railroad Co., with the Corporation
Commission charging discourtsy on
the part of the station agent and al-
leging that the said agent blew
ciggarette smoke in the faces of pa-
trons when they asked the time that
overdue trains would arrive.

Prof. J. H. Bayes went to bis farm
Saturday. He says that lie lias a bet-
ter crop than for several years be-
it lias been our pleasure to com-
pare the electric service of Chandler
with that of many of the cities of the
state, and with the exception that we
have no day service the comparison
lias always been in favor of our home
city. Mr. Stettmund lias a good plant
and lias given good service. We do
not pretend to know what the plant is
worth, but we do know that the fran-
i hi.se provides that the city can pur-
chase it at any time it sees fit and if
that can not agree on the price they
can appoint an electrical engineer,
who with a man appointed by Stett-
mmid, sets the value on the plant and.
if they fall to agree they call in the
third man who with the other two
fix the value tlial the city is to pay.
This is the provision of the franchise

He says that the stockyards people
are very much interested in the ef-

and that they highly commended the
action of I.incoln county. They feel
that it means more cattle, better cat-
tle and a higher price when this
work is completed. Mr. Morrow
talked with several firms that they
were all of tlie same opinion. He
also talked with several wealthy cat-
tlemen of Missouri, some of whom
desire to invest money in cattle in

it was below the quarantine line they
could not do so. Some of them as-
sured Mr. Morrow that they would
