SALEJt, Or.. May 21 (Special.)
Rehearing of the Pacific Telephone &
Telegraph rate case has been set for
June 27, in an order issued by the
Oregon public 'service commission 46-
day granting a review of the order of
last March, which Increased telephone
rates throughout the state an average
of more than 30 per cent. The hear
ing will be held in Portland.
In connection with the order for
a rehearing the commission held that
the petitioners attempted no showing
whatever to justify a suspension of
the rates fixed in the schedule of
last March, eiher in whole or In part,
and therefore the commission was
warranted In assuming that neither
the law nor the facts support their
contention. As a result of this the
present rates will continue in effect
pending the outcome of the rehear
ing. "Primarily,", said the order, "the
city of Portland in its application
acts on its own behalf and on behalf
of other cities and towns In Oregon j
that have elected to Join with it. We
were Informed by the'eity attorney. In
oral argument, that the principal
cities requested that Portland repre
sent their interests. Consequently,
waiving for the present technicalities,
we assumed that Portland appeared
for the various Interests except In
such Instances as cities, associations
or individuals actually filed applica
tions. Only Oae Order Involved.
"It will serve no useful purpose to
rehearse the grounds here. Irrespec
tive of many references by the city
of Portland in its petition on mat
ters touching other and prior orders
of the commission affecting telephone
rates, there is but one order, and one
order only involved at this time in
the rehearing. This is the order Is
sued last March, known as No. ,689.
Evidence and testimony on orders
other than this ere not only redun
dant, but Irrelevant and Immaterial,
and any attempt to reopen other or
ders is apparently made deliberately
for the purpose of adding confusion
and clouding the issues.
"The telephone situation In all its
phases has been thoroughly covered
in numerous bearings heretofore held,
as shown by the voluminous records
in detail practically from the .time of
the first establishment of a telephone
station in- the state of Oregon to the
"The orders heretofore issued have
become law. No appeal was asked or
taken from any of the orders, and
they must therefore stand.
"Petitioners for rehearing attempt
ed no showing whatever to justify a
suspension of the rates fixed in order
689, either in whole or in part, and
therefore this commission is warrant
ed in assuming that neither the law
nor the facts support their contention.
New EviaVmce Hinted At.
"This petition for rehearing has
very remotely intimated that there
might be some new facts and evidence
to support the grounds alleged; but
there are no allegations in the form!

CHICAGO, May 21 (Special.) The
banking and business situation is
fundamentally sound and the danger
of a credit crisis has been passed. This
Is the mature opinion and best judg
ment of the soundest bankers In the
middle west and in its way is an an
swer to the critics of the federal re
serve board when a sharp advance In
discount rates was held responsible
for a too-speedy deflation from war
time levels. As a matter of fact, it
was the after-armistice business and
speculation which' strained the money
reserves of the country to tbe limit.'
Those charged with the administra
tion of the federal reserve banks had
never before had opportunity to test
the power of, high interest . rates to
cause business to alow up and thereby
decrease -the demand for bank loans
and improve the reserve position.
Many people were skeptical about tbe
success of such an effort. But there
is now no doubt of Its efficacy.
The Increase in the rediscount rates
of the reserve banks and the conse
quent increase of the rates on com
mercial loans by all banks, had an
immediate and increasingly strong in
fluence on all business. The price of

The latest proposals for a settle

with them earlier in the week. She

Should negotiations for a settle
