NEW POWER PW
; J '
STAYTON, May 9 Informa
tion from a more or less reliable
source to the effect that the
Mountain States. Power company
was not seriously considering the
rebuilding of its power plant here
recently destroyed- by fire, has
occasioned the circulation of pe
titions requesting the company
to reconsider this matter. City
officials and prominent business
people are most anxious for the
plant to be rebuilt.
While there was some talk of a
municipal plant being built pro
vided the eompany does not re
build, this for the most part was
considered as unfavorable. In
past years when power was fur
nished by private or municipal
owners, the service was not so
adequate as since the Mountain
States took it over.
The Mountain States holds a
franchise secured In 1921 which
does not expire until 1941 for the
construction and maintalnence of
power lines here. -Its present plant
equipment is said to be worth
around ; $7,000 and In order to
protect this Investment It seems
imperative that they should re-
build, r . . .
; Power company officials - have
suggested they may construct! a
high voltage line to Stayton from
Albany, but this plan Is not In ac
cord with the power users, here.
Since the power plant burned
about two weeks 'ago there' have
been a gvxd many times .wheni
