OF TWO UTILITIES
Portland Electric Power
Company and Northwest
ern Electric Named
Investigation of the rates,
charges and service of the Port
land Electric Power company and
the Northwestern Electric com
pany was ordered by the public
service commission here Tuesday.
The investigation follows the
recent defeat of the proposed mer
ger of the. properties of fhe two
companies, and the automatic
death of a previous order of the
commission , reducing electric
rates in event the merger was ap
proved by the voters.
The first step in the investiga
tion was taken last night when
the two companies were requested
fo send to the commission a com
plete and detailed Inventory ot
their properties. This inventory
will be used In establishing the
valuations of the two concerns for
rate making purposes.
The last valuation of the Port
land Electric Power company's
properties was made In 1916 and
totalled $46,862,971.92. No val
uation of the Northwestern Elec
tric company has been filed with
the commission. The valuations
of both companies will be brought
down to date, members of the
Taxes paid by the Portland

aggregated $185,477.11, as
against $76T,696.81 in 1927.
Hearings will be held under the
direction of the, public service
commission and the rates of the
Portland companies will be com
pared with utility corporations op
peratlng in other cities on the Pa
. The Investigation was said to be
in line with the probe of other
public utilities now being conduct
ed In Oregon.
PORTLAND, April 17. (AP).
The city council in a conference
with the mayor today determined
to file a petition with the state
public service commission at once
with the Intention of bringing
about a cut in electric rates In
Portland. The council said It
would "go the limit" In pressing
the case before the commission.
The resolution which the coun
cil Is expected to adopt tomorrow
called on the chamber of com
merce and other clyle organiza
tions to enlist In the fight for low
er power rates. It pointed out
that statements were made by
power company officials prior to
the rerent unfavorable vote on the
power merger proposed by the
Portland Electric Power company
and the Northwestern, Electric
company, In which It was said that
much waste takes place In the op
eration of the two companies and
that the public pays for that
waste. The power companies said
in urging the people to vote for
the merger, that the waste result
ed from duplication of efforts in
the same field.

nance Committee UD-
posed To Tariff Rider
WASHINGTON. Apr. 17. (AP)
Prospects ot democratic support
for the Shipstead tariff rider to
the tax reduction bill were dashed
tonight! n a statement by Senator
Simmons of North Carolina, rank
ing democrat on the finance com
mittee, declaring that he and oth
ers of the party, "would not look
with favor" upon the combination.
Senator Shipstead. farmer-labor.
Minnesota, offered a measure yes
terday as a rider to. the tax bill
proposing ah Increase of tariff du
ties on farm products, -and Senator
Simmons who was looked to by
the Minnesotan for. support, de
clared the linking of taxes and tar
iff might Jeopardise tax reduction
at this session.
The North Carolinan's state
ment, which said It represented the
views of other democrats on the
finance committee, was regarded
as definitely precluding enactment
of the Shipstead proposal. Admin
istration republicans were not ex
pected by Shipstead to favor his
proposal but he had hoped that
democrats and some republicans
might stand with him.
Two radical changes In the ad
ministrative provisions of the rev
