The city council has entered into
a contract with W. H. Abrams for
five years to erect and maintain a
power and light plant and to pro
vide the city with thirty 32-candl
power and seventeen 16-candle
power lamps for street illumination
at the nominal price ot $115 per
month. The contract makes pro
vision for lurther lights at. any
time during the tenure of the con
tract at $2.60 for 32 and S1.60 for
10 power burners. It is provided
that the contractor begin construe
tion of the plant within two weeks
and push the work to completion
at the earliest possible time. Con
iractor Abrams will put iti new and
powerful dynamos and the best of
modern appliances and when the
plant is installed it will be an up-to-date
one in all respects and the
streets will be well lighted. Before
the fire burned up tho former plant
the lights were blurred, dim and
uncertain, but for all that they
were a God-send to the utter dark
ness that now prevails, and when
the new plant is completed and
turns on the electric current the
citizens of Cottage Grove will have
cause formuch rejoicing. It is ex
pected that it will require about six
weeks or until about the first of
January before the new light will
be turned on.
The Nugget at no time during
the campaign had a doubt of the
result of the presidential election,
but it is somewhat surprised that
the victory was so sweeping and
complete for republican principles
of sound money, prosperity, ex
pansion and progress. The people
have spoken in thunder tones and
the verdict is against Bryanism and
democratic theories. Every north'
era state except Montana is found
in the republican column. For
national honor and integrity the
Pacific states stand proudly forth

On the front page of this issue is
a communication that should be
read and acted upon by the moneyed
men of this community. Asmelter
is something that Bohemia needs
and needs badly. Too long already
have the business men of this town
waited for capital to come in from
the outside to supply this want.
'God helps those who help them
selves," is an old proverb, and no
town or camp was ever built up
without the business element put
their shoulders to the wheel and
all push together. When a smelter
is built in Bohemia money will
flow into this town, and that flow
of money is just what this town
wants and must have if it is ever to
amount to anything. Now is the
time to be doing something and all
should work to that end.
