A Study in Anatomy and Physiology
UNDER the direction of Commissioner Charles M. Thom
as a study in public utility anatomy and physiology is
going forward in Portland. Judge Thomas h undertaking a
case study of the organization and operation of the North
trestern Electric company. His auditors have examined some
95 boxes of vouchcra covering every item of expenditure of i
the company since its organization. They have examined the
entries on the books and evidence has. been introduced re
specting certain arbitrary entries which have been made. '
- This anatomical study shows first a write-up of capital
by some ten millions of dollars. The chief engineer says this
is just "watered stock, and eliminates it from consideration
as part of the invested capital of the company.
. The revelation of ihe physiology part of the investiga
tion is the contract with Electric Bond and Share company,
the grandpa holding company, by which that company re
ceives 1.5 of the gross earnings of the company for "super
visory services",. This amounted to $54,916 in 1931 and to
$67,000 in 1928.
Following these studies in the company's anatomy and
physiology Commissioner Thomas will lay down rules of hy
giene for the health of the company and the community.
In this manner of procedure Commissioner Thomas jus
tifies the belief of those like ourselves who have faith in
" the virtue of utility regulation in lieu of public ownership.
He is trying, to get at the facts. The company will have full
opportunity to defend its rates and accounting practices.
Then the commissioner will issue his order. This order must
be one .which is reasonable and not arbitrary so that if at
tacked in the courts the commissioner may be able to de
fend it -
So far as the write-up of ten millions in capital is con
cerned company's counsel contends that this has nothing to
do with the rate base which depends on the plant invest
ment That is true. The facts about this write-up were fully
' reported by The Statesman in the 1930 campaign. As we re
call the company's earnings were not excessive, after elim
inating this ten millions of watered stock. But it is assured
ly a subject which calls for official inquiry such as is' now
. Fees for supervisory services are always subject to
criticism. In some cases the services rendered may deserve
compensation. In other cases it is merely a scheme to siphon
into holding company treasuries money which is labeled "op
erating expenses" of the subsidiary companies.
The state should follow the progress of this case with
interest Commissioner Thomas has an opportunity in it to
demonstrate the virtue of state regulation. He should be fair
; to the" company and to those who have honestly invested
money in the property. He should not seek to render a pol
itical decision. He must also keep faith with the public and
make his rate order in' accordance with the facts which a
thorough investigation discloses. He is on trial as well as the
company; and so is state regulation.
X Marks the Spot
THOSE who were foolhardy enough to venture into the
riffles of political candidacy now find themselves caught
in the full current and are gasping for breath to find out
whether they are being swept over the falls or whether they
-tee being carried on a flood tide to victory at the polls. For
they are now getting letters from various groups seeking def
- inite and unequivocal answers to specific questions. For in

' your Candidates for dog-catcher are being given the third
degree on their stand for resubmission.
-The militant hopgrowers first took the field and by re-
peated solemn declaration they have "warned the candidates
what to expect if their breath issirroco. The church: groups
and W. C. T. U. long familiar with the questionnaire test are
challenging candidates to make their stand known on the
great question of prohibition.
"X marks the spot'?-and it is a hot spot for many who
: want to run with foxes and hunt with hounds. Others how
ever, resent being - catechised : on an Issue which they feel
does not arise over the offices which they aspire to. For ex
ample the office of county recorder isn't one where the mat
ter of one's stand on" the prohibition question would affect
the administration of the duties of the office. This class of
candidates naturally doesn't like to be nailed to the cross
on what is to them an extraneous issue. .. ; ;
; Oregon is to have a- referendum- this f aH on the question
of state prohibition. The real test will come in this vote;
Both sides, do welt to reserve their heavy .ammunition for
- the fall election. The candidates in the primaries may boldly
. declare their allegiance; or they may, as 'many probably will;
ignore the questions from both sides and make the-best of
the situation. Right now the candidates are undergoing the
blindfold test they would like to take a peek to see just what
is the wise thing for them to do, politically speaking.

Disbanding the Shock Troops
T7USCIST HITLER is getting a taste of his own medicine.
X , He has extolled force and bemeaned the German govern
ment for lack of positive action. Now the government bol
stered by the overwhelming -vote in reelection of President
von Hindenburg. has moved swiftly and decisively. It has
ordered Hitler's "shock troons" to disband. It f rirtldny rm
their headquarters and supply depots and threatens sum
mary action, against those, who interfere with the function

r lf the German people stand fast in th? frvfn
means the triumph of government and the defeat of Adolph
Hitler and fascism In Germany. Just as ten years and more
ago Germany resisted the blandishments of eommnn!m
now it refuses to go the road of fascism. Either one is a dic
tatorship, a rule by a powerful few. Germany prefers to take
the middle ground of orderly, responsible, constitutional mv-
ernment rather than the dictatorship of the fMan on horse
back" or of the proletariat headed by some Stalin or Lenin.

A o-ealled Coanty BepnbUeam
Convention was hold In the Cham
ber of Commaren Saturday after
noon. The writer was an on-took-er,
not n delegate. . i
It wail one of thoso spasmodlo
attempts to bras . back thn old
convention arstemvlnto Oregon
pontics. Other similar attempts
havo been made la. tho past, no
Ublr the ono that resulted ia the
eleetioa of Os West, n Democrat,
oyer J. Bowerman, tho convention
candidate of tho Republican party.
It was unfortunate that ; tu
convention was held. : It accom
plished no good purpose. Tho peo
ple may not do a very good Job
running- their own government,
but they will continue to run It
nevertheless. Had tho convention
assumed a high standard, adopted
eonstruethro program, avoided
controversial matters. It might
well havo resulted In chrystallls
Ing sentiment In favor of better
government and assisted In bring
ing: success ' to tho . republican
party. As it was, however, the
convention spUt about evenly on
tho wet and dry question, and tho
wets will still bo wet and tho dry
will still be dry.
Candidates for office who
were unfortunate enough to be
delegates, were wisely absent when
the roll was called, doubtless real
izing tho convention would not
represent In any sense the Repub
lican party or its views.
The discussion over tho adop
tion of the wet plank took on an
amusing aspect when most of tho
dry speakers devoted their time
to an expression of solicitude tor
the welfare of the Republican par
ty, while most of the wet speakers
expressed most concern over the
present laxnees in the enforcement
of tho Prohibition law.
It looked to a bystander as
though there was just one issue
before the contention, and that
was whether or not 'we should go
on record for a legalised liquor
trairic, ana the issue, having
been Injected into the convention
by tho wets through the insistence
upon the Inclusion of a wet plank
In the Republican platform.
snould have been fought out on
strictly a wet and dry issue. When
ever the wets attempt to clothe
this issue in the angelic vestments
of law enforcement, or the drys
attempt to evade the issue by in
slsting that It Isn't good for the
Republican party, it is unfortun
I might be accused of strad
dling If I didn't say frankly that
was strongly in favor of tho
Eighteenth Amendment and tho
enforcement of the Volstead. Act
lust as it Is, even though It takes
150 years to eradicate the liquor
irainc m America.
Personally, I think It would bo
a good thing for the Reoublican
party and Everybody concerned If
the so-called convention was en
tirely forgotten and no candidate
reminded of it during the primary
election. , It will be difficult
enough to overcome its adverse
effects on tho Republican candi
dates in the general election.
