Raleigh. Oct. 26 —Tne State Cor

its conference here tomorrow with the
four larger electric power companies

lower and more uniform rates for the
entire State of North Carottna. Each

Southern Public Utiltiles Company

Power Company and the Durham Pub

together with a chart showing the
prevailing rates of these companies ! n
North Carolina and the average rate
in ITT cities of about 50.000 population
This chart, prepared by Dr. C. E. Wad
dell, the consulting engineer and rate
specialist employed by the commission
to assist it in its study of rates in
the State, showed that the rates of
these four companies are materially
higher than the average rate for these
177 northern cities. The letter fur

their rate* down as nearly as pos

cities and to submit their nej* rate,

Carolinians who gathered at the State
Fair grounds here yesterday morning
to hear and see him while his special
train paused for about 20 minutes,
judging from the enthusiasm with
which they greeted him. True, it was
nothing like the crowd that utrned
out to hear and se« Alfred E. Smith
when he passed through here in 1928,
when more than 50,000 people packed
and jammed the streets of Raleigh to
get a glimpse of "The Happy War

Roosevelt yesterday waa probably
more sincere, with less of the curiosity
element in it, than the wlecome given
Smith four years ago.
It is believed that there would have
been from 25.000 to 35,000 people out
to welcome Mr. Roosevelt yesterday
If the weather had been better and
if it had been possible for him to

weather, which was chill and drizzly
and threatening to turn into a down
pour of rain at any minute, the ardor
and enthusiasm of those who did turn
out was not dampened in the least.

the request of the American vi» e

who gave him name as Jean Saul, a »d
arranged to send him to Madrid l*r
que-tloning in connection with the
kidnaping of the Lindbergh baby.
He was apprehended after the Am

noymous note from two American
sailors who said they had talked with
Saul in a saloon here, and that 'he
seemed to know entirely too mu :h
about the Lindbergh kidnaping.”
The vice-consul asked the police -O
investigate, and it was diacovei id
that Saul's Identification papers were
Incomplete. Police also said he had
made contradictory statements about
hie nationality, than declined to an
swer further questioex, declaring that
he would tell nothing more “until I
can face the American police, where
I can expect falrneaa.”
At the consulate It was said that
Sau! speaks English with a heavy ac
cent and it is suspected, therefore.
; that he is not an American. The name
he gave the police, they said, probably
is an alias.
