; MAKES A BID.
The Electric Light Company Offers
Low Rates for Street Lighting. :
There seems to be a probability
that there will be a renewal of
contract between the city of Cor
vallis and the Electric Light Com:
pany, by which the latter will sup
ply the city with light for street
and other purpose's for a term of
years. The negotiations are 'be
tween the Light Company and the
special ; committee, on street
lighting, consisting of Council,
men Henkle, Avery and Rose.
They have reached a -. stage where
preliminary -agreement has been
turned over to the city attorney,
with instructions to put in form,
and for preparation of an ordinance
J which will be
presented to the
council for consideration. The
character, of the contract is such
that before it can be made binding
on the city, it must pass the coun
cil in the regular way in the shape
of an ordinance. It will be up for
consideration at a special ; meeting
of the council, which has been
called to convene next Monday
night. . ' ' -' .
; The basis of the proposed con
tract, is an offer mide by the Light
Cbmpany to the council committee.
The terms xf the proposition have
become generally known on the
street. As learned from this source
it seems that the Light Company
makes its offer, on a basis of both a
io and a 20 year's contract. On a
ro year's contract the company of
fers to supply street lights of the
present candle power at $24 per
year each, which is $2. per month.
The price now paid is $30 per year
or $2.50 per month. On a contract
to run 20 years, the company ;of
ers to supply the. same lights at
$17.50 per year each. ' or a little
less than $1.50, per month
The proposition also includes a
bid on arc lights. ' On a ten years'
contract the price of arcs of regul
ation candle power is placed at $85
per year, or $7.08 per month. On
a twenty year's contract the price
is Jixed in the bid at $75 per year
for each arc, or 16.25 per month.
The city now uses 40 ' incandes
cent street lights. The committee
has figured that four arcs in , the
central portion of town would sup
plant 13 of the incadescents; that is
each arc would take the : place ' of
three and one fourth incandescents.
In other words fonr aces and 27 in
candescents would light the ton"
as well throughout the city, and in
the central portion far better than
does the present supply of lights,
But under the terms of the proposed
2o years contract, for $75 per month
the city could get four arc lights
and 33 incadescents, r That is to
say the city has. been paying $102
50 per month for 40 incandescents
but ' it can get under . the
proposed bid the central por
tion of town beautifully lighted
with arcs and get six more incades
cents than it now has for the other
portion of town for $75 per month,
jit is not supposed that the council
will take final , action at Monday
nights meeting." It is not even
known what the report of the
special light committee will be; that
whethe the committee will recom
mend acceptance of the . bidd or not
Should thecommitteso recommend
the report will be likely to largely
influence the other members of the
council. What the opinions of
other coucilmen are on the subject
is not known. In any event, it is
probable that the matter will be
exhaustively discussed at Monday
nights meeting, and that the pro
posed ordinances and contract will
be continued for either , another
special meeting or to the regular
meeting next month for, final action.
One member has expressed a desire
that the matter shall not be unduly
hurried, and that ample time may
be given for consideration of . the
question in all its phases. A fact
of particular interest is - that the
council seems in fair way to put the
matter 01 street lighting on a busi
ness basis. (Ji equal interest ' to
them would be similar action
with referance to water for

What will the Outcome be Third
Meeting Between the two Elevens
-J' "T Washington men Here. ,
There is very great local interest
in the outcome of the game of foot
ball to be played on OAC field this
afternoon, between the OAC and
University of Washington elevens.
The teams have met twice before,
and each has a victory to its credit.
OAC won the original game sever
al years ago in a score of 17 lo
naught. The game was on OAC
field, and it gave the local team the
Northwest; championship. Last
year the second meeting between
the teams occurred at Seattle and
Washington won ina score of 16 to 6.
In today's ' game, ' several of
the players on both sides will face
each other for a 'second time. Of
the latter among the OAC men are
Abraham, Williams, Root, Nash,
Bowers and possibly Cupper. Cap
tain Bert Pilkington, who- was out
of the game last year with a sprai
ned ankle, bas a lame hancl, now
and will not be in the struggle this
af .ernoon., Of the Seattle men it is
understood that about six of the
team played against the OAC men
in last year's, contest. Nearly all
the remainder are understood to be
new players, some of them in their
first game.' In this respect together
with the fact that the match is on
their own field, the OAC men have
sligh'ly the advantage of the game.
With both teams, the struggle of
this afternoon will be the first game
of the season, and will accordingly
be a matter of much
with respect . to the ontcome. In
the Seattle eleven is Capatain Spei
dell, who won fame by making five
out of eight place kicks that he at
tempted last season. Two of these
kicks - he ; made against OAC
and to these kicks one of which was
made in the last minute of the last
half is due the better score for the
The game will be the first of the
kind between the heavier teams of
the Northwest this season. It will
attract the attention of enthusiasts
in two or three states , and will be
the beginning of a campaign of the
sort that promises to be universally
brilliant in character. Even should
the local team meet with a reverse-
this afternoon, it willnotbediscour
aging, for the eleven that it is to
meet swept everything before it last
season winning the Northwest cham
pionsnip with ease. .1 he game
Will -be called at 3- o clock.
