NORTH PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
ATTORNEY SAYS NO EXTENSION
OF POWEll.H OF STATE HAIL
WAY COMMISSION.
Tho following letter from Mr. Shu
man Is of IntercMt to the people of
tho olty and for Hint reason wo print
It In full:
"Editor of Tribune :
Corporation nover sloop, but the
pcoplo oft times tlo If wo thought the
gas rate question wns closed when
tho Council turned down tho Com
pany'H request for nn Incroaao, wo
mado a mistake. It looked like this
was tho ond of It, hut Inst wook a 1)111
was Introduced In tho Legislature to
alvo tho Stnto Railway Commmlsslon
power to fix those ratos. And ovon
In North Platto papers tho North
Platte Light Sc. Power Compnny has
the norvo to requost by nn advertise
ment that wo being partial, request
the legislature 'to glvo thorn an un
tiartlnl Jury tho Stato Hallway Com
mission, to dccldo all Issuos relating
to rates and service to tako control
of Uio regulntlon of public utilities'
They will havo a. poworful lobby In
tho loglslaturo to accomplish this re
sult. "Tho Stato Hallway Commission Is
a body that has granted all tho rate
Increases to tho telopliono companies
and other bodlos In tho State of Ne
braska, If this bill bocomes a law,
wo will no longer havo tho situation
In our own hands, but will bo forced
to go to a board at Lincoln,
"Tho way to stop this, of course Is
to kill thin bill and wo can do this by
oxorclstng our Influence upon tho
membors of tho loglslaturo. Tho nd
vortlsemont tolls us to wrlto our Sen
ator and Representative that wo favor
this kind of a law. Shall wo do It?
Tho North Platto Light & Powor
Company has a plant In North Plntto
and another ono In Columbus. North
Platto Is sovcral times as largo as
Columbus, but In that city tlioy charge
but nlno cents for oIectrlclty whllo
thoy chargo us 12 cents. Tlioy asked
tho mayor and council thoro to glvo
thorn a 20 Increase In oloctriclty
rates, but ovon thon that would not
bring tho rato up to what thoy charge
In North Platto. This rato incrcaso
was donlcd by tho mayor and council
of Columbus. Shall w Bloop until
thlo bill becomes a law and thon And
wc aro helpless In tho matter? If
theso corpornMons ask for this kind
of a law, wo can easily know It Is Just
what they want
Very truly,
W. E. SHUMAN."
