Ask for them. , DoYouKnowThese Conditions? Since the rates for electricity were fixed in your city the electric light companies of Indiana have had to pay 194 per cent, more for coal. 48.41 per cent, more in taxes. 144.8S per cent, more for coppe 45.41 per cenu more in iax.es. 144.8S per cent, more for copper. 51.14 per cent, more for iron. 65.91 per cent, more for general supplies. The general operating expenses of the light plants of Indiana have in creased at least 45 per cent. BUT THE RATES FOR ELECTRICITY HAVE NOT INCREASED AT ALL. Someone has had to pay these increased costs ever since prices started to soar. The lighting companies of Indiana have met these increases out of the narrow margin between their operating expenses and their gross reve nue as they were estimated before prices began their upward trend. IN MANY INSTANCES the lighting utility has not only sacrificed the return on the capital to which it was entitled by law but has actually gone into debt in order to keep up its service to its community. ISNT ELECTRIC SERVICE AND "BUSINESS AS USUAL WORTH A FEW MORE CENTS A MONTH TO YOU? The electric light companies of Indiana have stood the drain of increased costs on their treasuries as long as possible. Now they are asking you to help them carry a burden that has resulted from conditions entirely beyond their control. The utilities are not tillring: of ptoflt today. They are not asking to be reimbursed for the tosses of the last few years. They are seeking only rates tiat will enable them to meet their increased and increasing cost of living. They hare suggested 30 per cent aa a reasonable increase to day. The Public Service Comraiaalon has the power and the ability to determine whether this figure is reasonable. The lighting companies uk for nothing more than justice.
