by the case and save.
Standard Corn, per case of 21 $4.15
Tomatoes, per case of 24 $4.00 .
Milk Co-operative, per case $6.75
We guarantee this as good as any.
Potatoes, Weston Mountain, per sack. . . . $1.90

The telephone company will be compelled to borrow large amounts of money
in the next few years, not only to extend its service to new subscribers, but to
take care of the constantly increasing use of the service by present subscribers.

A lender in business will demand of a borrower ample security and will insist
that its value be maintained without deterioration. He must be shown that this
security has an assured earning power. He must be satisfied that his investment
is safe ; that it car? be disposed of at any time without loss and that it will bring
him a continuous return.
At the present time this company's operations in Oregon are conducted . at a
deficit. Its expenses are greater than its revenue. No return is being received by
its stockholders from their property in Oregon. Not even the interest on its bonds
properly chargeable to its Oregon properties is being paid from Oregon receipts.
With new capital scarce and commanding high rates of return, a business
showing operating results such as these will find it difficult, if not impossible,
to secure money for its necessities. '
We assume that the people of Oregon wish to treat the utilities doing business
in this state justly and fairly, and in this belief we have asked the Public Service
Commission to approve a schedule of rates increasing our revenues. The amount
asked for isrelatively small to the individual rate payer, but the aggregate will
place us in A position where we can obtain the outside capital necessary in our
Under present conditions an adequate telephone service efficient and suffi
