I could not gel tno nusincss: - -, Bo tbat for tho past two years havo been between tho Devil and tho deep blue sea. I havo not beou able to make tho plant pay n return on tho Investment, and of course I have not been ablo to reduce tho rates. I rea lized that under tho peculiar local conditions, that the money Invested In tho plant was In dangor, but that I had lived In hopo that the long looked for development would come and pull mo out ot tho hole, by giv ing mo a chanco to got moro business. so I could ruduco the ratos. "In ordor to convlnco tho council and tho people that wo wero playing fair I was tino of tbo strongest advo cates for calling la 'e public rer vlco co mm l:e Ion. nnd thev have just concluded holr Jiivpstluattan npd oxpect to have a. bearing ln;thq neat luturo. "Now then Into this condition of affairs comes theDend Flour- Mill' Askiae for a franchise to uso tho Streets for polea to carry power to their flour mill from outside the town. Previous to Its chaugo of ownership we had carried the flour mill for about eight months, and bad never got n cent for It- wo did not havo to carry It of course, but we did not want to shut down tho only In dustry In town. "Now then cornea n man who statos that ho will malto tho floor mill a success but In order to accomplish It he must have cheap power, becauso ho la handicapped bv the differential In freight rate between Uond and towns nearer th center of the wheat bolt such ns Redmond or Madras. "I feel that any Industry Is en tltlod to this becauso othorwlo the.v will not locnto hero, but I must not mako tho rnto so low that the pub llo will bo carrying Ibo burden. "For this reason after talking It ovor with Mr. Kroenort several time I offered to furnish tho power on tho following basis: 76 H. P. on n 10 hour basis. $181 per month; 75 II. P. on a 24 hour sehodulo. $170 per month; according to Mr Kraenort's figures on tbo output of his mill, this amounts to 5 cents on n barrel of flour that costs you J7.C0 or to put It another way to mitnufature JUtO worth .of flour will cost 05 contB for tho power. , "This shows how ridiculous all this fuss about power Is nnd that tho op eration of tho flour mill Is not tho real conslderotlon of this franchise. You might fay tbat you aro not Interested In what tho flour mill bays. This Is one of tho groat mistakes of this whole business bocauoo the coun cil la not Biinposod to bo representing the flour mill or Foloy or any other Interest. You aro here to do what ever is best for tho publlo and the granting of this franchise would bo distinctly nntaKontstlo to tho publio Interest Why? "Rocause oven this low, rate that tho flour mill would pay ub will rep resent between 10 and 20 per cent of our net revenue for electricity and If this revenue Ib taken away, it will mako it necessary for tho Railroad Commission to fix tho ratos that much higher than It this franchise Is Mannh eimer s Not How Much We Sell You ' ' but How Much We PLEASE You not granted. "This docs not mean that the rates will bo necessarily that much higher than they are now, but that they wlil bo that much higher than what the commission would make them if wo had this flour mill reve nue; "It has been said that this Is a Question of personal liberty, that tbo flour mill ought to be allowed to use the streets for their polea it they want to. This is another mistake, becauso personal liberty ends when you begin to interfere with the rights of others, and in this case it would be Interfering with tho rights ot tho public, because ns I said before you would cause tho public to pay be tween 10 and 20 per cent moro for tholr light and power. Another point to bo considered Is "hat In tho very near future this town Is going to bo put In tho position of trying to In duco a loreo milling Industry to lo cate In Rend rather than a good many miles from Rend, Is tho attitude or the town toward the oastorn capital already Invested hero going to havo any weight In making this decision, my guess is that it is. Tho counoll has put this whole matter In the hands of the commis sion and tho least you can do Is U wait tholr decision. I am .not asking you to favor a corpo&Uori. although thlscompay Is enUtled.to fair treatment HufI do auk you" to decide this matter for tho bendflt'of the public nnd If yqu do you will not approve this fran chUo: Advertiswitenrif" ' " SIGNS FOR BALB.
