North Carolina are much higher than
the average rate charged in 177 cities
of 50.000 population, or over. A chart
or graph prepared by Dr. Waddell
shows that while the average charge
for 60 kilowatts in these 177 northern
cities is $3.80. the Carolina Power and
(Light Company charge is $5 for 60
kilowatts. The bill of the Tidewater
Power Company would be $4-90 for 60
kilowatts, the Southern Public Utili
ties would charge $4.45 for 60 kilo
watts and the Durham Public Ser
vice Company would charge $4.30 The
Corporation Commission is asking all
these companies to bring their rates
down as near as possible to the aver
age rate charged in these 177 north
ern cities.
The commission agrees that it can
hardly expect the power companies in
this State to bring their rates down
all the way to this average for 177
cities, for two reasons. One is that
there is less domestic consumption
of electricity in all the southern
states—not just in North Carolina—
because of lees density in population,
with the result that a slightly higher
rates by the power companies is justi
fied. This lack of population in the
i South, as compared with the nor*i
•nd ea«t. *« further accentuated be
cause of the large percentage of Ne
groes in the soum, most of whom are
non-consumers of electric power and
non-users of other utilities.
Aa a result, the commission can
hard tv insist that the same rates be
put into effect in thia State aa are in
effect in northern states. But it doss
believe existing rates can be lowered.

The Statsi. Supreme Court refused to
grant a n£W trail and upheld the con

the case of Davis, the United States
Supreme Court has refused to grant
a writ of certiorari, which means it
has refused to review the case. Offi

the case by the United States Supreme
Court was received here Saturday, al
though the decision -kad been an
nounced several days ago. It has not
taken any action action on the peti
tion to review the case in behalf of
Luke Lea and hie son, however.
Both Davis and the Leas are near

being brought closer and closer to ihe
doors of the State Prison, it is gen
erally agreed. This would be even
more true should the State Supreme
Court refuse to grant a stay of exe

court should refuse to grant this *tay

still nearer to prison. Yet they would
still have several weeks—perhaps sev

to start serving their prison sentences

The Leas are much farther from the
State Prison than is Davis, since It

But even if the Supreme Court here
should deny the petition for a str/* of

The Leas and Davis, however, could
postpone their sentences still further
by failing to appear at this time, even
should they bo called. If they did not
