Metropolis of Northern Arizona. o_ o VOL 25. . Electric Light Decision. The'- suit of N. S. Ely, mayor of the town of Winslow vs the Winslow Electric Company, in stituted several months ago be fore the Corporation Commis sioners, for the purpose of a re adjustment of the cost of street lighting, has finally been decided in a lengthy opinion, full of legal verbiage and technical terms. Boiled down to real facts, the Commission finds there is no con tract existing between the town and the company for street light ing, and the town bears relation as any other commercial consumer; that the old flat rate of $8.33 per month for each lamp was not a contract price; that they had the right to elect for a moonlight schedule and could in sist on a meter measured service for current. The commission al so furnished a new schudule of rates to be charged the|city for current, fixing the rate for street lighting at six cents an hour for 1000 or over K. W. hours per month. On the principle points of contention the city has won, and let us all hope peace and harmony will hereafter prevail between the city and the com pany. The commission decided the city had to pay the light bill under the old schedule for the first three months of this year, while the row was brewing, and prior to the case reaching the commission.
