SAN FRANCISCO. Jan. 17. Regu
latlon by commissions was the sub
ject of ami address delivered this
evening at "the University of Califor
nia befoie'-a large gathering of stud
ents, business men 3nd railroad men
by Samuel O. Dunn, editor or the
Railway Age Gazette, member of the
Illinois liar, and author of the Ameri
can Transportation Question.
Mr. Duuu in hts introductory re
marks spoke in very high terms of
the v. oik nd the personnel of the
California commission. He stated
that during: his visit In California ht
had been making a stiid of ll'e work
of the comniif .ti'i and Hint he fad
nothing but words of praise for It.
He said jn jiart: '
-Regulating commissions aae been
created both by the nation and inosi
o"l."thV states because Jit is believed
tliat public, utilities must, be contiolled
"-TnU nfeguluted In the public Interest,
and it is thorn-lit that lawmaking bod
les. courts and ordinary executive of
flcials .are unfit for this work. The
personnel and the legal ;iowers of
these bodies are equally Important. A
commission composed of able and Im
partial men with small powers will
do much more good than a commis
sion composed of incapable and bi
ased men with large powers.
"Unfortunately, the personnel of
regulating commissions ustialb has
been tery deficient The commission
er often hae been partial and seldom
lone been specially qualified for
their duties Several things are needed
to secure better men. Higher salaries
should be paid In most states. Id
only one state, it is believed. Is the
salary o'ler $5,000.00 a year and in
Fome it is as low as $1200.00 or
?1j0OO0. The commissioners snoulo
be appointed rather than elected.
They should have special knowledge
of transportation and other public
rtlUty matters when chosen, they
should be given long terms, and re
appointed as long as they remain
faithful and efficient. They should
have the strength and courage to re
sist the public when It is wrong as
well as to coerce public utility man
agements when they are wrong. In
toojk many " cases the commissioners
have been politicians who have pre
viously carried on agitations agalnsi
the. concerns to be repeated and who
have by that very circumstance be
come disqualified to fairly alt in Judg
ment on them.
-A public uUllty is not public prop

to a public service. As long as its
ownership remains private so should
