sent a letter and brief to Governor Park pointing out that if the governor signs the every case pending before the commission involving the ableness of rates charged ers would automatically end There are fifty major cases now in process of adjudication before the Public Service sion all of which will be ly determined in the near future Mr O'Bryan said Among tlie concerns whose valuation and rates involved are the souri Power and Light Company which serves Moberly and a ber of nearby communities Since the institution of this the letter said ring to the Missouri Power Light there have been re-
