I HE IRON HAND
from three o>ut of the four utility companies in the town.
Briefly summarized, the results of the cojnrnittee were
‘as follows: ’ , ,,
TELEPHONE. Extension of two-party rate, hereto-
fore available only in special cases, to anyone^who asks fox
it, without the necessity of having the second par > n a >
for connevUoh>t the time. A saving by this means ot
$6.00 annually for residence and $12.00 annuall t"i >
POiVER AND LIGHT. A reduction amounting to ap-
proximately one-third in the.starting' pe r-kdowatt rate tor
power and light*, with reduction in all other power an 1
GAS COMPANY. Promise of sweet gas within ' __
days. Likewise the promise that the proposed.sweet, gas
will have more heating quality than the present .product, „...
therefore will amount-in-effect to a cut in rates. Promise ,
pf an oil treatment plant to remove foreign matter fro n ,5i„
gas coming to the city.
WATER COMPANY. No concession of any sort.
Thus, a movement on behalt of lower utility rates,
started in an unassuming way two years ago. has at last
borne some fruition.
William L. Kerr, now district attorney, pioneered the
first utility investigation here along with the Enterprse,
which acted merely to give voice to the wishes of the
people. That investigation was stopped by an obstacle
that none had foreseen at that time but nevertheless some ^
results were obtained even then. Several thousand dol-
lars in interest on security deposits were secured for Pecos!
people and the seed was sown that v;as to germinate in the
present successful movement for lower charges.
Now, as we understand it, the revolts of the utilityj
investigating committee are to be ril. :i into ordinance ~
to insure their legality and the fight mare or .less ‘checked’;
to the city council, who heave indicated rat t! y ' ill carry
on a militant fight on behalf pf the people. i
In giving credit where credit ’* du< for re ult's obtain-,
ed in this movement, the Utility co rniv < e t PnyUing oi D..,

U. W. Bozeman, J. H. Lawson and B. T. Biggs deserves
credit for the thorough manner in which they probed into
the facts in the w hole sit uation and for the fair and square
manner in which they approached the utilities.
Judge Henry Russell, who w as a guiding factor in the
entire investigation, deserves especial credit for the fair-
ness in which he handled the situation at Monday night’s
meeting, as well as the other times. He sees the people’s
side and he sees the side of the companies. And it is the
cool, level headedness of Russell and others who have been

This newspaper now believes that the committee has
done fine work, and 1 hat the city council should proceed
from this point in the manner required by law with the t iti-;
zens’ committee frequently consulting with them as the
direct representatives of the 200 or more persons who at-
tended Monday night’s meeting.
We believe that the Utility Association’s recommenda-
tion in regard to the ordinances, the possibility of municipal
ownership and the employment of a city meter reader
should be carefully considered by the eouiicil
These things being done, this newspaper is -atisfied
that the people’s interests are being protected.
