After a far-reaching Investigation

extending over a period of five
months and marked to fstormy hear
ings in tne city of Portland, the com
mission issued an order today refus-
ing 10 auow an application or the
Pacific Telephone & Telegraph com
pany for an increase of 27 per cent
'in telephone exchange rates .on the
company's lines in Oregon. The com
mission takes the position that to
grant the general revision sought in
the company's application would
place an unwarranted burden upon
. No increase is allowed in residence
rates except at four places and Salem
is not one of them. To help the
telephone company meet wage in
creases and other abnormal expens
es a temporary modification is made
in rates for business service. Im
portant among the ruling of the or
der is a clause permitting persons
who desire to change from desk to
Wall phones to do so at any time
within 90 days of the effective date
of the order without extra charge
After 90 days a charge of $1 will be
made. The order is effective from
Relative to increased wages and
other abnormal expenses the com
mission holds that some relief is im
perative if adequate service Is to be
furnished. Business service rates in
Portland are, increased for single
party lines' from $8 to $8.50 and for
two-party lines from to $ month
ly. At points outside of Portland
excepting towns where consolidations
have been made, the maximum in
crease in business rates Is $1.50.
This rise applies only In few instanc
es. Outside of Portland the increase
in business rates In most cases is less
than $1 and for small exchanges the
increase. is seldom more than
Increases in residence rates are
allowed for only four exchanges.
These are Albany., Corvallls, Oregon

The higher rates sought by the
company were designed to produce
additional revenue of approximatly
$640,000 in Oregon and in some in
stances the increases asked were as
high as 60 per cent and throughout
the sUte averaged 27 per cent. Rel

mission. The telephone company
represented that the rates would re?
turn only 4.35 per cent of valuation.
but the commission's probe revealed
that the rates If allowed would act
ually bring a return of 7.2 per cent
The calculations of the company were
found to be in, error in that a rate
jof depreciation was asked on a
straight line basis wnue ai me same
time the company asked for a return
on undepreciated value. This, the
commission avers, is inconsistent
and that if undepreciated value is
made a basis for calculation the de
preciation must be figured by the
"sinking fund" method, while ir a
"straight line" depreciation is adop
ted in the calculation a depreciated
valuation must be used. The order
allows 5.6 ner cent for depreciation
while the figures of the company is
on a 5.75 per cent basis.
