Most all of the regulars have taken advantage of our sale, but we always have a few stragglers---who come in. ublic Opinion is a powerful influence in any fror: and enlightened community. Indeed, public opinion, as crystali/.cd and voiced by an independent, enlightened, public spirited public press, is just about the most potent of all the forces dominating the life of such n community. No man, and certainly no corporation, can flout public opinion with impunity. liven where no governmental agency is specifically designated for the REGU? LATION* and CONTROL of public service companies, Public Opinion alone in the long run has been, and continues to be. a safer, surer, more efficient and more effectual means of regulation than competition. For COMPETITION IN PUBLIC SF.RVICE IS NOT REGULATION. The testimony of all the authorities th.tt can be cited, of all the public service commissions ever created, and of all the communities that have had complete experience of competition, is that as a means of regulation competition in pub? lic -ervice is "A FAILURE," "A FUTILE FALLACY," and "A FARCE." The only way competition "regulates" service is to depreciate its quality. The only way competition "regulates" rates for public service is to make them higher for all future time. In the electric light nnd power business COMPETITION IS AN ECONOMIC CRIME AGAINST THE PUBLIC. The PUBLIC always has to PAY for the duplication of plant and also for the less economical methods of production and distri? bution which competition inevitably brings. Here in Richmond Public Opinion is by no means inoperative-?YOU know that. But in addition to the wholesome CONTROL by Public Opinion, public service corporations are subject to REGULATION and CON TROL by spe? cifically designated governmental agencies?both City and State. The Virginia Railway and Power Company is under the influence and CONTROL of Public Opinion, and as to its light and power business specifi? cally IS SUBJECT TO FULL AND COMPLETE REGULATION AND CONTROL BY BOTH THE CITY AND THE STATE. Furthermore, if then is any conceivable point in relation to this business over which the. Cor? poration Commission does not now have power of regulation and control, the State Constitution expressly authorizes the Legislature, at any session, to confer such additional power upon the Corporation Commission. That the management of this company realizes all this?realizes that this company IS A SERVANT OF THE PEOPLE OF RICHMOND?is proved by the uncontroverted and incontrovertible FACT that this company is pro? viding SERVICE OF THE BEST QUALITY?service that is not surpassed anywhere?at a price that is EXCEPTIONALLY LOW.
