The possibility of receding costs
Tor labor, materials and supplies
opens up a ray of hope (or the legis
lators who bavo been looking ahead
to tbo solving ot Intricate financial
One ot the best informed Btato of
ficials on financial matters estimated
the other day. after privately going
over the figures ahead, that the
problems may bo mot by the finances
-which will bo available. His figures,
however, wero based on contingencies
which may not nrlse, and what is
looming on the financial horizon of
the state for the next blennlum is
problematical, to say the most that
can bo said.
By a combination of numerous
"Its" a deduction may bo roacbed
that If there Is money enough to go
around the state may get through,
Jiut If there is not tho stato won't
gut through satisfactorily. That
teems to bo the most logical solution,
and will no doubt bo tho basis upon
which tho legislature works, after it
lias its first few spasms in trying
to straighten out tho tnnglo.
There is little doubt but this gravo
(problem will be the one to tako up
the most ot the legislator' tlmo and
ijray matter and tho guess apparently
lias chances for being a good ono
that tho tanglo will not bo stralght
uned out until tho G per cent, limita
tion amendment, by Its own auto
matic growth, reaches a place whoro
sufficient funds will be provided.
When that financial mlllenlum Is
reached no doubt tho people will rc
peal tho amendment. Thero Is little
liopo ot its over being repealed bo
foro that halycon day. Dut wliatovor
"becomes of it there are a largo num
ber of state officials who do not heBl
tuto to declaro that a mlstako was
made when tho amendment was
Indications point to tho fact that
tho public service commission may
Tdck over the traces in tho telophono
TUto cases and precipitate a tight
which will determine whether or not
tho federal govornment may rido
rough shod over stato statutes and
state regulatory bodies In a tlmo of
comparative peace. Tho commission,
during the tlmo that actual hostil
ities wero in progress, threw down
the bars and acquiesced In tho ac
tions taken by tho federal regulatory
administrations, but tho control ot
telephone and telegraph lines ap
parently takes on a new phase with
a practical, If not actual stato ot
peace existing.
A hearing will bo hold next week
In Portland to detcrmlno whether or
not the Pacific Telephone & Tele
graph company Is justified In mak
ing material Increases sought under
tho guise of giving higher wages to
operating employes. Tho company
admits its servlco is a heinous of
fenso against an entirely unoffending
state, but contends that its only
remedy Is an increase In rates so
that It may boost tho wages ot some
decidedly underpaid girls.
The assumption seems to be that
in these times of high prlcos tho old
schcdulo of wages for telephone
operators Is entirely too low for a
girl to llvo in decency and solf
rospect and thero doosn't seem to bo
much objection on tho part of any
one to paying them wagon that are
something near commensurate with
the sarvlcos rendored and tho cost
of living.
Tho commission agrees that this
should be done, but the members
are not all suro that the phono com
pany needs anything llko tho in
crease asked, nor Is It at all sure
that It needs any Increase at all.
Tho solid fact of tho matter Is
that It is barely possible It may bu
found that tho present rates of tho
company might bo reduced, tho oper
ating employes' wages raised, and
still havo money left for tho company
and the government. This Is not a
prediction that such will bo found
to bo tho case, but It Is hinted at
as a possibility.
Whatever is found, tho commission
will operate along tho lines that It
will go completely Into tho situation
and roturn an order squarely on Its
The situation simmers down to
something llko this: Tho company
filed its rates with tho approval of
tho postmaster general, but did so
Illegally aB far as tho stato statutes
aro concerned. Strong protests from
tiic commission finally brought tho
postmaster general -to a point whoro
ho conceded that the stato statutes
should bo followed and that he
thought tho company had followed
ho regularly provided channels of
procedure. lie ordered tho company
to do this, but ho did so laboring
under tho assumption that by fol
lowing tho proccduro It would be
merely a perfunctory proceeding and
that tho commission would merely
Issue an order approving tho in
creases without going into tho situa
tion any further.
There is whoro tho postmaster
general stubbed his too, becauso tho
commission fs going to do nothing at
all ot the kind. It Is going squarely
Into tho matter on Its merits, nnd
horo It seems to havo tho P. M. G.
over a barrel, as when tho merits
of tho case nro shown up, commis
sion members hint, tho merits will
bo such that tho esteomed P. M. G.
won't havo tho nerve to kick over
tho traces If ft Is found that his
wishes aro not compiled with.
As near as can bo determined,
without prejudging the cause, the
company Is endeavoring to slip
I something over on tho patient pa
trons that Is not entirely Justified
by tho conditions and the commis
sion Is lying In the brush wnltiivg
to Jimmy the company squurely on
the coco at tho first uppuaranco of
tho aforesaid company's benn.
Those telephone cases may be tho
opening wedgo toward determining
how far the government has control
over the rights or status to regulato
public utilities within their own
borders, and inuy havo an Important
bearing on tho future of government
control and ownership ot public
As It Is, there Is not u community
In tho state but Is waiting to see
what tho public service commission
will do.
In tho light of Increases in Port
land on tho Portland Hallway, Light
& Power company, us well as of the
interurban carfare rises, and In
creases given to utilities In many
parts ot tho stato, It Is likely that
with tho first dawn of pcaco tho
commission will tako a gougo at tho
telophono company, It Is apparent
that prices for materials, at least,
will drop to a certain extent and sup
plies ot many kinds will go tho same
wuy. Tho company, , or tho govorn
ment cannot expect to hold out for
long tho cry of advancing costs, bo
causo costs will probably go down.
Tho postmaster general gavo as
surances when ho took over tho
lines that ho would hotter tho reve
nues by increasing tho volumo ot
business, and that tho way tho vol
umo of business would ho Increased
would ho by lower rules und hotter
service. Instead tho company lias
Immediately been endeavoring to put
on higher rated with a service which
smells to tho high heavens. If any
of tho government ownership bugs
think Hint the P. M. O. Is making
their cause popular they should back
up nnd go down another switch.
