DAY CURRENT IS
DARK STORES AND OFFICES DUR
ING WINTER DAYS RELIEF
There has been, considerable talk
the last few weeks of a day electric
current, caused no doubt by the ex
ceptionality cloudy and foggy weather
'this fall. It is a fact there has) (been
few days when lights were not
needed in moat ot the stores except
a few hours in. 'the mididile of the) day.
It has already been demon situated
that several of the court house Qf1
fiioes are too dark to work In during
winter days without artificial llgilii.
This is esipecIaiHy true of the clerk's
and sheriff's offices. The! matiter has
been brought to the attention of the
The company now furnishing elec
tric light has so far nefusedl to In
stall a day current, and this fact is
causing those who see the, great need
of it to look elsewhere for reMlef.
It is stated that the Joseph Electric
company is using only oaie-thlrd of
its power and wants to come -toi .this
city with its lines. ' It already has 0
franchise from the county court, over
the roads to Enterprise city limits,
and a number of farmers along the
route ,want the current not onlly for
lighting but for power purposes also.
It is stated hat the Joseph com
pany has offered to sell .the local
company current at wholesale rates
to make up any deficiency that
might ensue' iif the lines and useful
ness of .the local system were ex
tended, a diay current glvem and also
to provide a reserve eo the . town
would not he far darkness during tine
cold snaps of .winter. .
If any such arrangement couldi be
effected to .the mutual iniiereat of
all parties concerned, including the
customers 'present and prospective
of such an improved and enlarged ser
vice, that would probably be the
beot way out of .the, difficulty.
The, majority, of .the 'business! men
talked to oni the subject, while. Im
patient for the enlarged service, say ,
they would prefer only .one system
In town. A few are outspoken for
enlarged service, especially day cur
rent, get it how we may. There is
some talk of a, municipal plant. '
The most urgent need of a " flay
current rigfoft now is for lighting pur
poses, but it would prove a big boon
for power also, and a number, of) motor-
would be installed. 1 ;
Leo Forsyth, of the local com par
said Saturday that no offer had) been
received to the last yean from the Jo

STATE CASH FROM
AMOUNT RECEIVED OVER! HALF
MILLION, DOLLARS ORZGON'8
Washington, November 30 For
the fiscal year landed June 30 laPt,
the U. S. Department of Agriculture
announces, the 25 per cent of Na
tional Forest revenue which will go
to tiie, stoitesi for road and Bchool
Purposes amounted, to $506,194 34.
This was $67,492.03 more Khan laot
year, or an increase of a lditfele over
15 per cent. The; payments are an
offset to th loco of Income from
ta;:abile 'property sustained) through
withdrawal of ithe forest land from
entry under the public land laws.
The amouna which will go to the
various states are as followo: Arizo
na, $51,220.33, Arkansas $2,904.44, Cal
ifornia $60,752.91, Colorado $50,306.19,
Florida $706.38, Idaho; $66,074.65, Kan.

South Dakota $9,808.93, Utah $32",906.49

Noteworthy Is the especially heavy
increase over the amounts lest year
In certain states, m California the
amount rose by over 25 'per cent, In
Idaho by oven 35 per cent and in Or
