Monopoly In Water
Power Rights Grows
Forestry Service Shows Development
Of Industry In All Tarts Of CountryOver-Development
Washington, December ??? In the
fiscal year 1916, says Henry S. Graves,
Ch'ef of the Forest Service, in his an
nual report, twenty new water power
project which utilize National Forest
land began operation. This was an
increase of 18 V6 percent in the total
number. In the fiscal year 1915 the
number of new projects which began
operation was twelve. Forty-two per
cent of the total developed water
power of the United States utilize
National Forest land, the Forest Serv
ice figures show.
Development of relatively small
projects Is particularly in evidence,
according to Mr. Graves, in the Rocky
Mountain States. California leads in
the amount of power under permit
and In operation. The number of
transmission line permits In effect
was increased by thirteen during the
year. The forty applications for
power-project permits received in
1916 included eight from Alaska a
notable evidence .according to the re
port, of Increased local interest in
power development on. National For
est lands there.
Concerning the report prepared by
the Forest Service in response to a
resolution of the Senate calling upon
the Secretary of Agriculture for In
focmation regarding the ownership
and control of water power sites and
any facts bearing on the question as
to the question as to the existence
of a monopoly In the ownership and
control of hydroelectric power In the
United States, Mr. Graves says: "This
report presented In far greater detail
than has ever been attempted before
an exhaustive analysis of the general
power situation. It showed a marked
concentration of definite and compl
ete control of a large percentage of
developed water power by a very few
companies. Data presented regarding
Interrelationships through common
directors and principal officers In
dicated a marked tendency toward as
sociation or community of interests,
particularly between the principal
holding companies. The movement
toward concentration in commercial
central stations of all the primary
power employed In the electrical in
dustries and in manufactures was
found In all sections of the United
States, the rate of concentration dur
ing the period 1902-1912 being highest
In the South Atlantic States and the
extent of concentration greatest In
the Western States.
"The rate of increase in water
power development for public service
use from 1902-1912 was approximately
three times as great as in steam
power. Primary power installation
from all sources and for all uses in
creased from 1902 to 1912 more than
2 times as rapidly in the eleven
Western States as in the remainder
of the United States, while the in
crease for primary electric power for
the same period was 440 percent for
the Western States, as against 226
percent in the other States. The dev
elopment per capita of the Western
States in 1912 was 2 times as great
as in other parts of the country.
"The report showed a considerable
over-development in nearly all the
power centers of the Western States
California, Oregon, and Washington
in particular showing installations far
in excess of maximum demands."
