The Lawrence Bills j
r' is only natural that there should now be discord in the
interpretation of the! sacred writings It was always s?.
The people need not be surprised that even the elect dis
pute anions themselves : as to whether or not the Lawrence
bill conforms to the text of the Jofeeph platform, which is of
course the covenant of the new administration. Harry Gross
-says that it.violates the views of j Mr. Joseph, and the gov
ernor insists that it conforms and! abolishes the commission
"as now constituted and Col. Clark publicly admits that bis
bill is merely the carryover with slight! amendment of the
old legislation and regulatory machinery. The various dis
ciples may quarrel like conventional religionists over; how
to interpret the three tablets of stone that are the alpha
and omega of the new faith. While they are doing tnat tne
public is warranted in making a study of the merits of the
bill without regard to just how itr conforms with the Book
: The Lawrence bill in brief
1st. It "abolishes" the present public service commis
sion of three and sets up a single "commissioner of public
-utilities" who possesses all the powers .now possessed by
the commission. ill' I
2nd. It gives optional and somewhat qualified "home
rule" to cities. . . j vr-' ; ! J ' j ;. -' ; - -. j
;3rd. It gives the commissioner power to examine and
pass upon contract : between, operating 1 utility companies
and affiliated service oi supply companies. j
The last provision is a legitimate protection of the pub
lic interest. It prevents affiliated or holding : companies
from "milking" the utility under the guise of "operating
expenses" and thus keeping its apparent -rate of return be
low the "fair rate." ! ' .. i
'The first change making on0 commissioner instead of
three is pure camouflage. "A ! rose by any name would
smell as sweet." Compare it with senate bill U2, creating a
"hydro-electric commission" which would consist of three
members. The regulatory i commission or commissioner
will have far greater duties than this latter commission of
trirfMv shiner-ton nas ft single hpArl nf the "department of
utilities", but he has associated supervisors who join in pass-
ing judgment on rates. The public service commission is- or
dinarily one of the most over-wdrked branches of govern
ment. The duties are pressing, important and onerous. The
work is of such a character that the seasoned judgment , of
three is much to be preferred to the judgment of one. It
would be a mistake, in bur opinion, to substitute a single
commissioner for a board of threei ' i

How about "home rula?" In all probability this would

young newspaper reporter. . A
note, written by the Baroness, is
found near the body. Bim recalls
seeing the Baroness slip the but

denies. Suspicion is cast on Mary

' CHAPTER XHI
As always, when aha saw Miss
Laura Allan in these surround
infgs, Bim was struck by the vast
difference between the aloof, ar
istocratic young woman and the
members of the Pine Hill crowd.
Laura Allan was tall and slen

Given more vivacity, she would
have been like a thin, burning
flame; as it was she seemed to

Her manner was languid end
faintly scornful; she. appeared' to

them.- She would sit for an entire
evening with an untouched high

This morning she seemed to be

Something was said in this

though with an inward shudder.

until a clump of shrubbery , hid
her from the- view of those who
watched and there she- paused a
moment to draw a long breath.
The summer house was before
her, locked and deserted: she
was too far away to see the sheet
spread overthe body which lay
upon tee floor. T
, As she was turning back an ob

stopped and dug it out of th

Bim studied it thoughtfully
and stepped it into the pocket of
the sweater Jacket she wore. "An

self with a wry little smile, "one
