If we were a political prophet we would say that '
neither Root nor Burton will be the republican candidate j
for president. A new deal and a new man is likely to be '
the outcome of the next national convention, alter a
hard struggle between the eastern and western wings of
the part. Justice Hughes alone of all the old-timers has i
a show to land the nomination.

A news item in the Eugene Daily Pveg'uter is signifi
cant. It tolls the story of the great success of municipaj
ownership of public utilities in that city in spite of strong
private ownership compotiton. When the cty went into
the light and power business there the Oregon Power
Company was charging the people 13 cents per killowat
for lights and proportionately high for power. The
municipal plant fixed the rate at U cents ami forced the
Oregon Power Company to meet it, but made so much
money over operating expenses, interest on bonds and
pinking fund provision that a further cut to S cents was
made. Still the plant makes money, and all the people
have the benefit besides of getting their lights for half
I he money the private corporation charged them when it
had a monopoly. The Register news items shows the
growth of the plant and how it is able to meet the re
quirements of increased business without resorting to
bond issues, as follows:
An aiivilinrv elect lie plant opfnt.-.l by te.uu will be built bi the l.u,.ciie
