Considered

but this will not represent Its great
est benefits, and should nto be giv
en more than due consideration. To
dispose of large blocks of power to
Industries employing but few men
would be a mistake.
FIRST INSTALLATION
Conditions here seem to Justify an
original development of something
like 80,000 to 40,000 horsepower. The
cost of developing and delivering at
a central sub-station in the city a
30,000 horsepower peak load as the
first installment will not exceed
$2,250,000, and the cost of a complete
distributing system, reaching all
consumers within the present city
limits for light and power, includ
ing street lighting, would be ap
proximately $4,250,000, such distrib
uting system capable of taking care
of business 60 per cent greater than
the present and adaptable to exten
sions without extra expense. In or
der to give an Idea of value In con
nection with tho commercial and
street lighting business and not for
the purpose of recommending any
particular rate, profit or policy, lt
may be stated that assuming that
the city or any single concern with
the .investment of $6,500,000 In the
properties mentioned, had all of the
commercial . light and power busi
ness and street lighting, but exclud
ing railway power, it could establish
a 6-cent base rate, with a corre
sponding scale for light and power,
and receiving credit at the rate of
$60 per arc lamp per annum for
street lighting, or against the pres
ent rate of $76.30 show an excess
earning of something like $700,000
per annum, after allowing for all
operating expenses, Interest on the
$0,500,000 at 4% per cent, sinking
fund of 2% per cent and proper de
ductions. These results are based
on conservative estimates, but
could not be accomplished with sev
eral distributing systems and sev
eral organizations operating to sup
ply the same service.
83,500,000 BOND ISSUE
At the time the issue of $3,500,000
of bonds for power purposes was
recommended the charter limita
tions would not permit of more.
The conditions in regard to aque
duct construction wore such as to
necessitate the expenditure of some
$300,000 in temporary work in order
to pass the water by power sites,
unless certain works in connection
with the power plants were pro
vided for at the same time. The
necessity for providing funds
promptly in order to make lt pos
sible for the city to profit by such
power opportunities at the comple
tion of the aqueduct was recog
nized also, and as pointed out by
the mayor during the bond cam
paign $3,500,000 would not only gen
erate an appropriate amount of
power, 30,000-horse power peak, as
stated, but would ieave at least
$1,260,000 for distributing purposes,
which would cover a substantial
portion of the city and result In a
working system. So much being
accomplished, it is evident that ad
ditional funds should be provided
for extending over the whole city,
which work could be accomplished,
thus placing the system In a posi
tion to make a much better show
ing, whether lt should have the
whole business of the city, as sug
gested in the above hypothetical
case, or be under the necessity of
competing for business, in which
case the showing which the sys
tem could make would bo quite
different, but the benefits to the
consumer no less. \ The present
peak load for light power in city,
excluding railway power, is ap
proximately $17,500, so that 80,000
--horse power would care for several
years' Increase.
The wording of the ordinance
calling the bond election and the
ballot by which the people In a
ratio of seven to one authorized the
Issue of $3,500,000 of bonds Indicate
an Intention to provide ln some
way for both the development and
the distribution of aqueduct power.
It is believed that the city will en
deavor to purchase existing dis
tributing systems at a fair valua
tion and not proceed to Install an
Independent system unless forced
to, and certainly should not.
. EXISTING POTVEB COMPANIES
' It has been suggested by many
that the city should sell power to
the existing companies for dis
tribution and resale by. them to Its
Inhabitants. The city and Its In
habitants have patronized the com
panies ln the past, and now has its
' own commodity, and so long as lt
stands ready to purchase existing
distributing systems at a reason
able price there ls no Justification
for such a claim. The question is
. raised as to the effect on the gen
erating systems of the combined
companies. Their statements to the
city council. of i January last show
that approximately 20 per cent of
the total power generated is used
ln connection with the business ln
question, being all commercial light
and power. Including street light
ing, but, excluding railway power
within the present city limits. It is
a' fact that the yearly Increase ln
the -generating business . has been
20 per cent for many years, from
which" it is evident that with suf
ficient notice neither the value of
such generating systems nor their
usefulness should be impaired.
There Is room in Southern Califor
nia for all. It is simply a ques
tion .of the city's sharing in the
business at least to the extent of ,
its own consumption, exclusive of'
. railways. Reports of companies to
; the council show that their dis
tributing costs' ln connection with
this service are something like
$400,000 greater than a very liberal
estimate on these costs to the city
. for supplying the same service.
The proposition of selling to com
panies for resale to the city and
its Inhabitants, therefore, could not
bo contemplated without Involving
a uniting of the companies so far
as this business ls concerned. 'It
would perpetuate a constant temp
tation to, interfere with the city's
' policies,' as well as the unfortunate -
condition of a number of • its best
citizens having Interests conflicting

with the city's best Interests. It
may be said that the people here
have made the city in which they
live rather than to havo been born
in it, and have a good understand
ing of civic affairs, and the city
has had successful experience ,in
handling municipal works of mag
nitude. Cheap power ls not and
will not be over plentiful In this
section and Is a matter of sufficient
importance to justify public in
terest.
John B. Miller, president of the
Southern California Edison company,
said that the power companies attend
ed tho conference in a spirit of co-op
eration and helpfulness.
SPEAKS FOR" COMPANIES
Attorney Trask appeared as the rep
resentative of all the power compa
nies. He said ln part: ( •
The subject under consideration
in its entire scope Is not easy of
comprehension — to understand
many of its details, to appreciate
the difficulties and uncertainties
attending the business require a
technical knowledge which but few
possess. But there are many facts .
Involved that we can all under
stand and which will be of assist
ance ln reaching a Just conclu
sion, and it is to such facts that I
propose to address myself tonight.
I shall assume that the power ex
pected can be generated and for
the expense contemplated, and you
will bear In mind that the bonds
thus far authorized do not Include
the expense necessary for a distrib
uting plant ln the city of Los An
geles or an auxiliary steam plant.
It ls estimated that at the present
time it will cost the city about
five millions to construct such a
plant, and to meet the required
extensions, Including underground
conduits for the next three years,
an additional expense of more than
' two millions. It ls also estimated
that an auxiliary steam plant ' will
cost at least $1,000,000. Tho bonds
of this city at present Issued and
authorized aggregate more than
$33,000,000. which ls the largest
' bonded Indebtedness of any city
of our class In the United States
except Cincinnati.
The rapid growth of the city ls
constantly requiring the extension
of electric light plants to supply
outlying districts. The expense of
which. Including the building of
underground conduits In the city,
amounts to from $700,000 to $800,
--000 annually. It goes without say
ing that in the present unsettled
state of affairs the companies can
not afford, to make the required
extensions. If lt would be the pol
icy of the city to enter the field
as a competitor of the companies,
lt follows that they will not be Jus
tified, In extending their systems
; ln Los Angeles, i There ls but one
course for them to pursue in such
a contingency, and that ls to stop
all extensions, husband their re
sources and prepare for the best
. fight they can make to hold the
business they now have.
FAVORS PROFITABLE RATES
The problem In hand cannot be
solved by competition ln rates, nei
ther can lt find a solution by an
agreement as to rates. To compete,
the power companies must of ne
cessity make a lower rate than
the city. Otherwise, from a con
sideration of self-interest, consum
ers would patronize the city. Such
a contest must necessarily be in
jurious to the city and possibly
ruinous! to . the companies. . And,
gentlemen, I respectfully submit
that the companies are entitled to
a better deal from the city of Los
Angeles than ruinous competition.
I have suggested some reasons
why there should bo an amicable
adjustment between the power com
panies and the city as to the dis
position of the Los Angeles aque
duct power, for a time, at least.
I have no special plan to offer at
this time, but I respectfully sub
mit that If : one can be evolved
whereby the city will j receive as
much net gain as If would by dis
tributing Its light and power to the
consumers direct and at tfio same
time securing to them Just rates,
and also the protection of the In
vestments of the power companies,
lt should be adopted. And I would
further suggest that . it would be
well to call to your assistance, in
addition to the able men you al
ready have, and for whom we* all
have respect, some expert from
the easta man from some of the
public utilities commissions who
has practical as well as theoretical
knowledgeand with such assist-
ance and such other light as you
can get by the advice of a board
appointed for that purpose or other
wise, determine what profit the city
can make if it constructs a r dis
tributing plant Itself and deals di
rectly with the consumers, and
then you will be in a position to
take up the subject with the power

companies and determine whether a
proper adjustment can be made.
PASADENA WANTS JUICE
Mayor Earley of Pasadena declared
that his city would want some of the
electrical "juice" just as much as it
wanted some of the Owens river wa
ter, as soon as Los Angeles was in
a position to furnish it. He pointed
out some of the mistakes Pasadena
had made in its municipally owned
electric plant and cautioned the Los
Angeles authorities against similar er
rors. He said that if the city was
going in to the business of municipal
ownership of electric power It should
supply all the light and power used
in the city and not enter into competi
tion with the power companies.
W. B. Mathews, attorney, for the
aqueduct and power departments, de
clared that any plan to dispose of the
power through the ' power companies
must be carefully thought out in a way
that would meet the ideas of the peo
ple
"The power companies must say on
what basis they expect to take over
this power and how the consumer Is
to be treated," said Mr. Mathews. "The
people must know definitely what the
power companies are to pay the city
and what they will charge the consum
er. This question will be decided by
the people and if they are to be guided
in their deliberations they must be giv
en a comprehensive Idea of what to ex
pect. The sooner the representatives
of the power companies meet with rep
resentatives of the city to determine a
working basis the better it will be for
all concerned." . '•"«

King, Richmond Plant and R. G.

The beautiful baths in many of the

and Mrs. McCan said that in many of

Miss Fanny Wills, Just home from
the suffrage convention at San Fran
cisco, says that the suffragists of the
northern part of the state have their
doubts as to the reliability of the
southern men. "You told. us before
that the southern delegation was all
right and when we got up to the legis
lature we found it was not right at
all," they have reminded the women of
the southern part of the state. "Con
sequently," said Miss Wills at the
Votes for Women club last night, ' It
becomes necessary for each one of us
to work as hard as possible between
now and election and see that the del
egation which goes this time is right."
Miss Wills and Mrs. Cora Lewis
made their report of the proceedings
of the convention to which they were
delegates. There was no formal ad
dress, the evening being devoted to the
transaction of business, and it was de
cided that the play, "How the Vote
Was Won," written by Miss White
head of Pasadena, should be produced
very soon for the benefit of the club
fund. Miss Whitehead will be chair
man of the committee, which will In
clude also Miss Cora Lewis. Miss
Fanny Wills, Mrs. L. Levlne, Mrs.
Mena Young and Miss Vina Nuss, to
make the necessary arrangements for
the production. It ls Intended to make
the affair entirely an amateur one, and
all players will be directed and coached
by Miss Whitehead, the writer of the
piece.
The club members are anticipating
the pleasure of entertaining Mrs. Char
lotte Perkins Oilman Stetson, who is
now in San Francisco and will prob
ably arrive in Los Angeles about the
middle of November.
The program for the meeting next
Thursday evening will include a de
bate, "Resolved, that the economic de
pendence of women is cause for their
political Inequality." Miss Whitehead
will have the affirmative In this argu
ment and Mrs. Cora Lewis the neg
ative side.

EBELL CLUB OBJECTS
TO ARROYO EARTH FILL
Largest Woman's Organization
Joins Big Movement for
Pasadena Ay. Bridge
Since the park commission voiced
the first protest against the construc
tion of an earth fill across the arroyo
seco at Pasadena avenue, not a day
has passed that has not produced a
protest from some other source. Yes
terday the protest was in the form of
a resolution from the Ebell club, the
largest woman's organization in the
city. The objection was like all the
others, a protest against spoiling the
beauty of the arroyo with*& fill that
will cost as much as a concrete bridge.
R. W. Pridham, of the board of su
pervisors, was before the streets and
boulevards committee of the city coun
cil yesterday. This committee is also
the bridge committee that is consider
ing the matter of the earth fill.
Mr. Pridham declared he had asked
the supervisors for all the money he
felt Justified ln asking for the dirt fill
but if it was the intention to build a
concrete bridge and property owners
would appear before the board of su
pervisors and ask a larger appropria
tion to provide a concrete bridge, he
would make no objections.
Bids for the fill are to be opened by
tho supervisors October 24 and the
bridge committee of the council has
decided to await the action of the su
pervisors on the bids. The city is
pledged to pay one-fourth the cost of
the fill but the protests against it are
becoming so numerous and strong that
a bridge may be provided in place of
the proposed fill.
