quately Iservo its customer)?, were
mndo public by the Kentucky Com
niittco on Public Utility Information.
The "turn-over" of invested cap
ital is much slower in the public util
ity industry than in any other line
of business. Tho merchant receives
back over tho counter in tho form
of sales the amount of his original
investment on the basis of $3 to
$10 per year for each $1 invested.
Capital invested in tho manufactur
ing industry is "turned over" from
one to fivojimes a year. But 5n the
public utility industry the outlay of
capital for plants, lines, tracks and
other equipment is so great that a
return in the form of sales of but
20 cents per year on ench dollar
is the best that can bo expected.
"Because of tho extraordinary
capital demands of tho industry and
the heavy investment necessitated in
every cpmrnunlty obtaining electric,
gas, telephone, water, or street rail
way srvice, it is clearly apparent
that nothing must he done thnt will
affect the credit of these companies,"
says the committee. "Unless the
companies are treated fairly by tho
communities they serve they cannot
go into the money market and ob
tain the funds necessary to keep
pace With normal development and
rendcij the efficient service which
every citizen has a right to expect.
"No industry makes as great a
permanent investment towards "the
upbuilding of the community as the
public utility industry. A rightly fi
nanced and properly managed and
faSrly regulated public utility com
pany is'ns stable and enduring as

equipped with a large amount of val

to, and embedded in the soil, these
companies are urban and interur-
ban fixtures. They have no yenrs or
seasons to shut down duo to poor

terprises must anticipate, for they
must furnish continuous and unend
