Ontario's Power System, Operating Without Taxes Serves Customers at Cost (Oonttnued from Pag* one.) Director King picked up a chart and occasionally pointed to it, as he proceeded: "Until 1910 Ontario's and our own private power companies charged ap proximately the same rates. The be ginning of 1910 found Ontario con sumers paying a 9.3-cent per kilowatt hour average, with Americans aver aging 9.2 cents. "The Ontario level remained prac tically unchanged throughout the year.'Then the province-launched its public ownership experiment. A year of uncertainty followed, as indicated by the dotted line on the chart, but 1912 opened with Ontario cities of 10.000 population and over averaging a S-cent rate. Since then the figure has declined steadily. In 1928 it was down to 1.5 cents. Smaller municipal ities have continued a trifle above this level, but were averaging only 1.7 when the larger ones had reached 1.5. “The average in 32 selected cities in the United States—selected by the rate research committee of the Na tional Electric Light association and therefore probably not chosen with a view to proving high prices—fluctu ated slowly downward in the same period to 7.2 cents.” “As to the question whether 7.2 tents is fair in the United States, against 1.5 in Ontario.” said Director King, “eminent authorities differ." H« discarded his chart for a pam phlet—" Power Records of Hoover and Roosevelt,” described as "a non-par tisan analysis for the information of voters” —just las usd by the National Popular Government league, and opened it. "According to Mr. Hoover, address ing a state utility commissioners’ con vention in 1925.” King continued, reading. “'ln intelligent state regula tion neither watered capital nor spec ulation (in holding company securi ties) can affect the rates paid by the consumers.’ While, according to Mr. Roosevelt, in a memorandum to the New York legislature April 193 °- 'The speculative interests, which have been magnified by holding company operators, to directly opposed to the interests of both legitimate Investors and consumers, and must, therefore, result in pressure for higher rates.’ Hpover t at tfte conYcntioa me a ■ V , M * 0• - *. t* Sfgpafrf} tioned above, also told his hearers, ‘The total distribution of interest and dividends by the electric companies, taker, ns a whole, has nrvei yet ex ceeded 6 per cent upon the values of all the properties for rate-making ipurposes’-while Mr. Roosevelt in formed the New York State Demo cratic committee in 1931 that they (|the power companies) seek in many I instances to earn, not 7 or 8 per cent, (but 30, 40 and 50 per cent on a large portion of their investment.’ “‘Your organization,’ Mr. Hoover complimented the National Electric Light association, in 1924, ’has shown great constructive ability in the de velopment of business ideals'—but Mr. Roosevelt's account, in a magazine article In September, was tha 'instance efte rinstance of pillage, deceit of the public and even prostitution of public agencies and officials, for which these same managers have often been re sponsible. may be found in the files of the Federal Trade commission inves tigation.' • ' "One must draw his own conclu sions," observed Director King, clos ing his pamphlet. State Democrats Start Campaign In High Point (Continued irorn Page One.) • mal opening of the Democratic cam paign in North Carolina is slated to begin this afternoon at the Demo cratic rally and barbecue at High Point, the camaign really started last Saturday with the "Hoover cart” rodeo in Goldsbor o,Governor O. Max Gardner said this morning as he was getting ready to leave for High Point. "The real opening of the Democra tic campaign in North Carolina was in Goldsboro last Saturday when from 10.000 to 15,000 people gathered there for the ‘Hoover cart’ rodeo to give the laugh to the depression and pay tri bute to the failures of the Hoover ad ministration," Governor Gardner said. "No one intended the ‘Hoover cart’ rodeo to have any political signifi cance and it has required almost a wee kfor its real significance to sink in. But when 15.000 people come to gether to smile at their adversity and to laugh at hard times and to show the world that they are still un daunted, even if all tey have for transportation is a mule and the rear end of the old Ford, the occasion has tremendous political significance. “In November the Republican party is going to wake up to the fact that EXECUTOR’S NOTICE I have qualified before the clerk of the Superior Court of Vance County as executor under the will of Mrs. Letti 3 S.

' •» , RAVAGING INSECTS FROM FOREST FIRES Raleigh, Sept. 17.--yme of the worst insect depretiatlons of years have: occurred in the forests during thA current year as a result of the heavy burning of forests of the State in 1931, Chaa. H. Flory. assistant State forester in charge of forest fire con trol, said today. Trees weakened by fires, he explain ed, are being with lower ed resistance and are. therefore, more subject to injury by Insect pests. A typical instance of insect ravages following forest fire as cited by Mr. Flory is t in Columbus county, where the Southern pine beetle has attack ed aiarge area. Where the attack has been* heaviest, the insect is said to ave stripped the trees of all needles. Wit hthe timber market already suffeftdgr along with other commodi ties, Mr. Flory pointed out that it is even more Important to offer ihe highest possible grades of timber for sale. Insect infected Umber cannot be marketed for even a reasonable le turn, he said. .
