A Columbian Says This Committee
"Would HaTe Better Results.
Editor The Missourian:, One of the
really ludicrous things about Ameri
can city government is the serious
ness with which city councils attempt
to deal with public service corporations.
In Kansas City this summer the (court," declared Mr. St. Clair. "I ex

pany should allow smoking on its
cars. It failed of enforcement be
cause public opinion was overwhelm
ingly against it. Now the council has
done its best to make itself ridiculous
by meddling, by ordinance, with the
corners at which various cars shall
stop. The question of rates, however,
is the one which is continually com
ing up in connection with public util
ities. Presuming that the members of any
city council are of sufficient caliber
to forget their local prejudices, the
question arises as to what is justice
in rates. Of course it is conceded
that the companies should make a
fair profit on their investment, but
the determination of the rate that
will gie a fair profit has always been
the sore point with public service cor
porations. It is not surprising that this should
be the case, for few city councils, es-; sidewalk on the north side of Broad

rattier than on thc amount actually
invested in the plant.
A state board with power to regu
late utilities would have some advan
tages over the city council, in that its
members probably would be more
capable of handling the problems
arising, since they would be appoint
ed for that especial purpose and
would gic most of their time to such
work. They would also be freed from
the local prejudices that arise from
being actually involved in the partic
ular cases. Still the difficulties re
main the same and seem to demand a
board of more than ordinary ability
Competition has been advocated as
a cure for all these evils. Some hae
even gone so far as to say that Col
umbia should have a competing tele
phone system. Dut this only plunges
one into worse difficulties. A public
utility is by its very nature a monop
oly. A double system of telephones!
would mean that each subscriber
would get only half service for a rate
very little less than full service costs
at present. Those who favor a com
petitive system of telephones should
consider well the case of Kansas City,
where each business house must have
both phones, and where each house
holder continually finds that his
friends are on the wrong line. ,
Well, you ask, if utilities are essen-j
tially a monopoly, and if their satis

things, what is the solution?
Municipal ownership is the only
real answer to this problem. Socialis-;
tic. Possibly. But consider, is there
any difference, other than in degree,
between public ownership of a tele
phone system and public ownership
of a sewer system or public owner
ship of streets. All are practically
necessities, so much so that thc
mere threat of a public corporation
to suspend business is frequently i
enough to defend it from the attacks,
of a reforming council.
The question of rates would disap
pear with municipal ownership, fori
the profits could be applied to paying
off the bonds necessary to buy the
plant, and service given at cost af
terward. It would also take the cor
porations out of politics, into which
they are practically forced now in
self defence. M. '

Dentistry, surgery and just plain

Backus of the College of Agriculture.
Of course there is theory, too, but
there is practice and plenty of it.
Eighty-nine clinic cases were treated
by the class this year up to October
2S. Up to the same date last year
forty-five cases had been treated.
Doctor Backus said this increase was
due to the recognition by the farmers
of the advantages offered by the vet
