The Light Question.
Editor of News-Herald: The city
officials who have talked for publica
tion have pretty thoroughly stated
thelr"posltlon 'and rights under the
various utilities laws; these rights
were known to me for some time and
I believe that,tho Light Company has
been willing to leave all questions to
the Utilities Commission for adjust
menu If the Commission rules that
tho. Light Company must furnish
meters free It will be welcome news to
many users of current and no doubt
users of water would appreciate free
water meters also.
In that case the meters would be
assets and the Utilities Commission
would have to Include them when
making a physical valuation of the
plant so that the Company would get
some returns for the meters though
less than at present.
1 find that many persons are suspi
cious of the Light Company and owing
to circumstances over which he had
no control I have come under suspicion
also. Until these people openly accuse
me I shall offer no explanation or ex
cuse, but I wish to say that these peo
pie are causing me to lose faith In their
own Integrity. I wish to say to those
who have tafcen the trouble to read my
articles that I am not making an effort
to maintain the present lighting rates
and further that the rates will soon be
lower but how much lower I do not
know as an invoice of the plant must
be made first
If both public and private users of
current get rock bottom rates I cannot
see that It matters to them whether
there is a municipal or private plant
here or whether the stockholders have
other sources of income or where they
live so long as they patronize business
houses here even to the same extent
that many merchants do.
I have maintained all along that
private ownership under control of
the Utilities Commission is preferable
to municipal ownership and a study of
the utlllies law will show that I am
right. Evidently municipal ownership
is unfair to the taxpayers unless the
bond Interest and the depreciation
fund came out of the net Income of the
plant so operated ; that is the Interest
and depreciation fund should not bur
den the taxas of those not using cur
rent and the plant ought to be self
The present plant has a good fran
chise but not an exclusive one and
whether'they have competition is up
to Council as is also the question of
meter rental though the Light Com
pany may settle the matter before
I believe the Light Company is ready
to meet all reasonable demands for the
public and such belief Justifies the
course of action I have taken. I have
tried to report facts and conditions as
I have found them though I have not
said much about the technicalities
involved because I know the people
are much more interested in the atti
tude of the Light Company and' the
rates;they are able to make, for service.
I have not found that the Light
Company has made excessive profits
and most of this profit went into ex
tensions, changes of equipment, repairs
and renewals. Under good manage
ment and on a narrow margin of profit
the plant ought to be able to produce
current at much lower rates and be
able to give uninterrupted service.

Panama Canal in Moving Pictures
When the average American reads
that the Panama canal is completed
and is now about ready for the formal
opening to the world's commerce, he
still wonders at the enormity of the
task-of building it. No printed de
scription can tell the'full story of the
greatconstruction. However, Lyman
II. Howe will present at Bell's Opera
House on May 13, an animated record
of Uncle Sam's great achievement
which will fully enlighten every cur
ious citizen. The film produces every
interesting phase of the Canal Zone
activity. Under the masterful edit
ing of the Howe organization, the
principal incidents of nearly ten
years oi photographic vigil at tne
Panama Canal have been put into
their natural sequence and will be
presented with a degree of realism
and perfection that is amazing. It
required several hundred kinds of ap
paratus to create the mechanicals ef-
fects which enliven the reproduction.
Mr. Howe has many other attract
ive features in his new program
There is a striking contrast of the
scenic grandeur of the Montana Can
yon of. the United States with the St.
Gothard Mountain which Is between
Italy and Switzerland. The traveler
has reproduced two masterpieces of j
natural beauty from opposite Bides of ,
the world. The spectator in a com
fortable theatre seat may now com

esque pblnts. The American views
