Christmas Spirit Will Prevail In City
Again This Year; Workers Will Organize
At General Mass Meeting Tomorrow Night
Klamath's deserving poor are to be remembered again this Christmas.
Tired mothers, sick fathers and wond cring-eyed kiddies are going to be
made glad.
Final plans for the organization of the annual Christmas Chest will be
made at the chamber of commerce q uarters at 8 o'clock tomorrow night
when delegates from all civic and fraternal organizations, churches and
other bodies will meet to consider Christmas plans and name the various
committees in whose hands will be p laced the task of caring for the city's
poor at Christmastide.
The Christmas Chest workers are o rganizing this year more than a month
earlier than last. There is much preliminary work to be done; investiga
tions to be made, funds to be raise d, and it is hoped that early organiza
tion will eliminate the last-minute cpnfu3inn which prevailed last year, due
to the short time in which the worke rs were given to carry on their work.
Keen interest is in evidence throu ghoul the city over the Christmas Chest
plans, and it is expected that nearly every organization in the city will
have delegates to the organizatidn meeting tomorrow night.

Copco Places two Entirely
Different Valuations on
its Property
DUcrepencies Declared for
Purpose of Obtaining
Higher Rates
SALEM, Ore., Nov. 9.
Declaring that the public
utility corporations of Ore
gon are assessed at one
value for rate making pur
poses and a far lower figure
for tax purposes, Governor
Pierce has issued a state
ment specifically pointing
out the result of such a pol
icy as it effects two of the
big utilities in the state, the
Portland Electric Power
company and the California,
Oregon Power company.
The statement places the
value . of the properties of
the Portland Electric Power
company as fixed by the
public service commission
for rate making purposes at
$71,575,215.62, and the as
sessed value fixed by the
state tax commission at $41
965,059.10 for the year
1925. After applying the
county tax ratios it is esti
mated that the company is
only paying taxes on an. ap
proximate valuation of $21,
000,000. In the case of the Califor
nia Oregon Pow'er company
the rate making valuation
is placed at. $5,892,615.94
the tax assessment valuation
at $4,050,751 for this year
and the approximate basis
for actual tax payments un
der the county ratios $2,
400,000. Governor - Pierce asserts
that the net earnings of the
two companies on tne actual
tax assessment valuations
for 1924 were more than 15
percent, although th?ir pro
fits were shown to be undsr
5 per cent on the basis of
their rate making valua
tions. .
