mercial power rates of the Portland
Railway. Light s Power Company and
the Northwestern Electric Company, of
Portland, are increased in orders is
sued by the Public Service Commission
today. Tho orders become effective as
of this date. Tha commission, in grant
ing the increases, allows the parity
rates of tba two companies to exist and
as far as the new schedules are con
cerned the orders for the two com
panies are Identical.
The main increase is imposed by ex
tending the number of hours allowed
under the primary rate. Under the old
rates th first 73 hours per month of
the consumer's demand was at the pri
mary rate, while under the new
schedule th first 100 hours are at the
primary or the larger rate. This Im
poses a greater rate upon the medium
or larger consumer, while not affecting
th rates of the smaller consumer.
' Primary Kate to Stand.
The primary rate Itself stands the
same under the new schedule as under
th old, with the exception that under
tbe new rate all kilowatt hours in ex
cess of 16.000 used under the primary
rate is charged at 1 cents per kilo
watt hour, where the charge was
formerly i cents in any excess over
aOOO kilowatts under that rate.
A comparison of Increases of sec
ondafy rates la practically impossible.
aa th commission has established
new schedule, not covering as many
different pbaies of use in the new order
as were shown under the old scneauie.
The new schedule of rates, effective to
First 100 hours' use ner month of the
consumers' demand will be at the pri
mary rate. All consumption In excess
of that at the primary rate will be a
th secondary rate.

The commission, in reaching Its ded
slon eoverlng the new rates, finds, as
far as th Portland Railway, Light &
Power Company is concerned, that th
increased charges, for which more
"revenue Is demanded, may be attributed
to the commercial power end of the
company's operations and, consequently,
no change of rates for lighting service
is Justified. The commission also de

Each citizen of Portland, who desires
to express appreciation for the deeds

Captain R. C. Dolbin, believes that
fully 8599 uniformed men may form tha
military pageant that . is to preeede

with bands playing and flags flying
through downtown streets to the Ice
It Is not likely that the soldiers will
have concluded their march ana oeeo
seated in the Hippodrome much before
8 o'clock," said Chairman Mills, "and
it is probable that the programme will
begin at that time. Seating accommo
dations are ample, and loyal .citizens
ihnniH rrsaD this opportunity to ex

Here are the military detachments

It In also Drooable that S08 sailors from
Bremerton, accompanied by their own
band, will arrive to participate in me
namria and nroeramme. Military oiii-
cers estimate that it will take 15 min
utes for the spectacle of marching men
to pass a given point.
The programme at the Hippodrome,
which will begin Immediately after the

structure, will be of approximately an
hour's duration. Opening with congre

Captain Hamilton was an officer in
the British army for 14 years. He re
