Advocates of the Former Not so Stren uous as Was Expected Auto Law Will Soon -Rival Public Utilities in Popular Interest. (Special to The Bulletin.) Hartford. March 26. Of course the public utilities commission matter ab sorbs the major part of the attention of the legislators these days, though there are numerous other matters which merit and receive attention. The Judiciary ' committee is by no means through with its hearings on the subject and probably not through with the affirmative side, , though, it must ha said in all truth,, that the advocates of the measure were not so strenuous or at the hearings in such large num bers as it had been expected they would be. No Great Rush to the Hearings. There does not ' appear from the course of' the hearings thus far to be the great popular demand for this measure that one might have, thought Irom reading the papers and from the last democratic platform. There has been no rush to Hartford to make the demand for this legislation so insist ent and so unmlstakeable that tha committee would be forced to report something favorably. I do not say, take notice, that the committee won't report something in the way of a commission measure, nor that it ought not; I merely say that there is evidenced no great popular uprisln' which would force this, whether or no. ' Secretary Wells, of the present tem porary commission, appeared and made plain the commission's feeling in the matter. The commissiqndoes hot in sist on limiting the pertffanent com mission to three members and would be as well pleased with "five. It does, however, insist that the .first few pro visions of the measure' framed by, which secures to the commission to be appointed the handling of all special charters, after they are taken away from the legislature.' ig fundamental to the proper sort of work by a commis-J DIVU, 1 ll.t, 19 lire ' ' 1 J 1.11 1 1, T 1111 11 WJG present legislature is very unlikely to grant For one thing, the basis of this lies In the need for regulation of the finan cing of public utilities companies, on the ground that if conservatively fi nanced under the supervision of a commission their charges can be made lower and thus the public will benefit Even if the representatives from the small towns weren't utterly opposed to taking these special charters away from the general assembly, as they are (and their attitude appears to be fixed on this point), it would require some thing more tangible and more readily understandable by the average man than the bonding and otherwise finan cing of public utilities corporations to serve to work men up to see a great public need for a plan which Is a nov elty to them. -Something Far Away from the Average Man. The financing of public utilities cor porations is something far away from the average man and whether or not his interests need protection in this re gard and I am making no argument as to whether they do or not and sim ply discussing the situation as it ex ists in the capitol from a news stand point the Subject isn't close enough to his everyday life for him to get worked up about It. Just there is w here the present commission has err ed in its effort to get the people to see matters from its standpoint. The Only Popular Interest. The only popular Interest in this whole subject lies in the- phase of con trol and regulation of corporations which furnish public utilities. If you show a man that the telephone rates In this state are Inordinately high and he'll open right up; that's something he knows about and can talk about and if you have a plan -by which he can be benefited along, that line he's with you. But the average man cares as little about whether or not the Southern' New England Telephone Co. is capitalized for a million or a hun dred million. He doesn't know any thing about such things and it's the hardest thing In the world to make him see that the capitalization has anv direct bearing on his end of the tele phone business; i. e.. what he pays for telephone service. If, indeed, it has; this isn't to say whether It has or not; opinions! of men-learned In the subeet differ very radically; yes, diametrical ly. Representatives of business men's associations see this matter, from this standpoint and, in reality, their onl Interest in a commission Is to have court of appeals to handle complaints that they have regarding this or that public service corporation. At the hearings, then, it was realiy a stand continued on Page Twelve.) SENSATION AT CORK, O'BRIEN, M. P., RESIGNS.
