Delos F. Wilcox, Franchise
Expert, Tells Conference
Utilities Should be Operated-
Tho people of Toledo have been
uwakencd to the fact that public utili
ties corporations obtain their right to
exist from tho peoplo: that the cor
porations must servo tho people eco
nomically and Well, nnd that when
thny no longer servo tho best Interests
and operato only in tho Interests of a
few stockholders nnd high-salaried
officials. It becomes the right of citi
zens to operate the public utilities cor
The people of Toledo will never ngaln
grant a franchise that docs not con
tain a clause giving them the right
to purchaso a public utility corporation
at Its physical value. They realize In
flated franchise values Increase tho
prlCe they must pay for the service
cotporatlcms supply. They will endure
this no longer.
The street car company In Toledo at
present Is operating without a fran
chise, because the company will not
give better service at a lower rate of
fare. The experiences of Toledo will
benefit the nation.

efforts to obtain better transit facili

Municipal ownership and operation of
public utilities was vigorously advocated
before the first Conference of American
Mayors this morning by Delos F, Wil
cox, a franchise expert, of New York
"We can havo nof sympathy with the
attempts being made on every hand to
hinder, hamper and render abortive the
municipal ownership movement," he said.
"We cannot approve of the attitude ot
those who are willing to saddle the city
with an enormous over-capltallzatlon as
to its Initial handicap when It under
takes municipal ownership "
He asserted that public utility invest
ments, if retained under private control,
should bo placed on a non-speoulatlve
basis and that their Mcurity should ap
proximate that of municipal bonds, in
the establishment of the non-speoulative
character of tbw Investments, cjtlw
should not undertake to make good past
losses, he eoatended
"So far as future Investments In the
standard utilities are concerned " Mr
Wilson said, "th oilltw should auutni
the risks ot losa dua to unforeseen
uauses and should substantially guaran

that I'hlladelphlana stand for a square

"We want Philadelphia to stand out as a

"We recognize the great part which the

they must be assured of an adequate and
