A REAL. REPORT.
"Investigating" Crook county is
coming to bo qulto n habit, and a
rather tiresome one, at that. Never
theless tho report from the offlco of
the Stnto Insurance Commissioner,
resulting front tho latest Investiga
tion, Is of too great Importance and
solid worth to permit our omitting
any portion of It.
The report speaks for Itself. It Is
fair and there Is no taint of animus
about It. It Is businesslike, nnd Its
conclusions nro set forth plainly. As
a contrast to a previous report, It Is
It Is a revelation In another way.
too. For It cost nothing. The report
which Judge Springer foisted on the
taxpayers cost (should all the claims
be allowed) near $1200, and at that
was totally worthless. Incidentally,
this last official Investigation con
sumed but a few days, while the
Sprlnger-Uall effort began to assume
tne proportions of a llfo job at $20
Therefore let us bo thankful. And
once and for all let It be clearly ap
parent that these facts are now es
tablished beyond the possibility of

defended has been shown up In its
true colors, and the utter wasteful

the Dall report, tho only criticism of
officials which the state Investigators
jdve volco to concerns a laxity by the

linquent taxes. No doubt this Is well
founded, and tho present occupant of
the office should bestir himself to
Cot in the cash. Rut It should be
borne In mind that the criticism,
which is mild, concerns the last sher

departments ot the office. While we
may be totally out ot sympathy with

attacks of the Sprlngerites. If ho Is
re-elected, be will owe It to Springer.
And now comes forward Spring
er's henchmen and say that tho offi
cial slate report Is worthless. The
effrontery ot It is farcical. Disgrun
tled because the Judge's hired man
was cast out of a fat job, whose ex
pensive results have been shown to
be worthless, they seek to throw mud
at the State's Investigation. Could
anytblng be more childish? And
could anything be more laughable
than the statements of the recall
seekers that the commissioners had
shut off all Investigation, appearing
simultaneously with the very report
they Intimate was never to be made?
It is a funny situation. Whatever
the virtues and the vices ot the offi
cials against whom the Springer con
tingent Is fighting, in face of the facts
as they are the recall can result In

of Lake and Klamath counties has

and personal popularity is concern

parts and a progressive citizen. His

To the Editor:
I want to say what I can to encour
age other farmers to go ahead with
the co-operative creamery. I believe
it Is a very good thing for all of us,
and I am sure that even If wo get
only 300 cows to start on wo can
make a success. Here Is one thing
to remember: butter Is getting high

owners will never be worse off than
they are now. I looked up my rec

STATKMHNT 1Y MR. STKIDL.
To tho Editor:
It Is prolmbly well known to tho
public that on tho lDth dny of March
114, tho City Council by a tie vote
rejected tho application ot Stoldl &
Tweet for an electric franchise for
tTTo City of llond; tho mayor casting
the deciding voto against tho fran
chise. It 1 very apparent that the
gensroua warning given to the coun
cil by tho representative ot the Rend
Water Light & Power Co. that It
would bo doliiK Stoldl a favor to vote
against the franchise nnd save him
the disgrace ot going broke, struck
deep In the receptive minds ot some
ot tho counotltuen, so deep Indeed,
that It completely changed tholr at
titude toward the franchise. That to
gothor with tho present company'
bluff that in tho event that the fran
chise would bo granted, It would
mnko no more Investments horo, that
it would give the city a "black eye"
and that competition at this time
would be an economic waste upon tlm
public, wore sufficient to transform
an affirmative council Into a negative
one and defeat tho franchise.
I nsk tho public to Judgo whether
nor ot 1 am entitled to as much con
clderatlon for tho Investments I have
made In and around llond ns the
Bend Water Light & Power Co. I
mve nt present about 20.000 Invest
ed In my power plant, which must
00 nosoiuieiy iosi unless i am per
mitted to come Into this city and soil
my goods, which require n franchise
from the City of Rond. Why should
1 not bo allowed to reallxe on my In
vestment If I can furnish tho public
with cheaper light and power than
thoy now got? Would It not bo a
public benefit? Why should the pub
lic or Its officers worry If I can under
sell tho present company nnd still
mako a profit and givo the public the
bonefit of tho lower rate? ,Let the
present company look after Its own
interests. The commission will nor
Interfere In the matter of reducing
rates so tong as I am alilo to show the
required profit, notwithstanding the
tact tnnt tne compoting company or
Utility can not show a profit at tho
samo price, and even though I un
Tho present company knows that I
can undersell It and that Is the rea
son It fights roc. and not hecauso It
has the public Interests so much at
heart that It fears for tho public wol
faro In tho event of competition. Just
remember tho Rend Water Light &
Power Co. Is hero for profit and not
for public health.
There is room for two companies
here now so whv not let In compe
tition? The people. I beliove,' invito
It. It Is a well known fact that com
petition produces first class service
and cheaper rates. The utilities act
was passed mainly to regulate and
control competing public utilities, to
prevent monopoly nnd to foster com
petition. Rend is now In the forma
tive period nnd now Is tho tlmo to
get competition In and prevent any
one company from getting n monop
oly on tne electric business hero. Tho
Rend Water Light & Power Co. says
that It built on the future and admit
tat It would raise the samo cry
against competition flvo years henco
as now, even though the town should
experience great growth. Tho com
pany will do well by tho public so
long as it is forced to but not other
wise. Profit Is tho Incentlvo and not
the public welfare.
I will leave It to any fair minded
citizen of Rend whether Lytic. Wles-
torla, Kenwood and Riverside would
have bad water and H'ht now If we
had not Invaded tho field.
We aro not trying to Invade or
force our rights or desires upon the
public, but wo are willing to submit
tho franchise to the voters and let
them decide whether or not wo shall
be permitted to furnish light and

In their judgment and will let them

LETTER FROM MR. TWEET.
A few remarks to Mr. T. II. Foley's
letter published In The Rulletln of
March 11, 1914. He states In his
letter that It would be an Injustice to
tho present company In granting of
another franchise at this present
time. It Is not an Injustice to no
body It would be a justice to all the
people of Rend, and It would be a jus.
tlce to Mr. Stoldl & Tweet who havo
been on the ground at Dond for
nearly 12 yoars and are In faot tho
first company and tho oldest In Rend
and It was mora of an Injustice to
Steldl & Tweet that Mr. Foley and his
company came Into Rond to drlvn
8toldl & Tweet out of their business
in which they already had establish
ed and a part already In operation.
The people of Rend know that Steldl
& Tweet havo boosted Rend moro
than any other two Individuals In
Central Oregon. Somo of tho peo
ple of nend know that Mr. Tweet wo3
the first to go east to advertise Cen
tral Oregon and spent his own monoy
In doing so and now been turned
down by Foley, his company nnd
somo of the councilmon. Steldl &
Tweet did not say anything against
tho other company' coming Into
Rend to operate another wntor. llcht
and powor plant. All Steldl & Tweet
Is asking Is that tholr right is 'ro
tected by the people- of Rend In which
they havo confidence and believe they
will do when the proper tlmo comes
which will soon be. Steldl & Tweet
will not give up their right as easy as
Mr. Foley thinks. They aro here to
stay. We have expended our money
here (about $20,000) and tho other
tholr groat monoy power. Wo will
take an ovon chnnco with thoni.
