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.’

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

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

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.
