people to have the benefit in good service at fair rates."
By "fair rates" referred to in that letter, we showed that we believed
Hie present rates were not fair to u. (but we had nothing to do with
cresting or establishing these rates,) and our intent was to give you a fair
rate as soon as the sale was continued by the Court and the property turn

The people, who are now offering "reduced rates" and informing you
that vim do not exjoy the same rates as your neighbor, are the scry people
who bad control of ami managed the Idaho Oregon Light & Power Company
before it wan put in the bands of the Receiver, and they are responsible for
