I'ri-.- WASHLNTON, May 3.---liuimaiion lhat a special session of congress will li- called by rresidcnt Wilson to meet June 1 is contain- ed in confidential dispatches re- ceived here today from Paris. It was said in authorative administra- tive circles that it was quite pos- sible that if the Paris situation should develop rapidly the special session might meet even before Juno 1. In that case the call would be by cable. The State Corporation Conimis- 1 sion has hitnded down si ruling on j the aplicatlon of the Ada Electric; it Gas Company by changing the i rates, but dty'ymK any increase in i I revenue. Manager F. E. j after ninnini; throuKh several pages I of his ledger this morning, says he thinks the new ruling will result in less instead of more revenue. The new rate permits the small cousumr to gel his juice at a lower rate, bin compels I lie larper con- sumer to pay considerably more. The ruling says; "The Commission finds that au increase in rates is not justified at this lime, but there is reason for changing the rates now in effect.. The testimony brought out the fact that the present jates are what are known as step rates and are dis- criminatory for the reason that at various ste-ps of the scale it is pos- sible for the customer to lower his bill by using or wasling more en- ergy. For instance, for lighting purposes. KWH would cost fo.SS and 50 KWH would cost The Commission will prescribe liglitinR and power rates that will avoid this absurcf condition and which, it estimated, will not af- fecl the revenue of the company to an appreciable extent. It will be found th .it the rales prescribed will amount to a reduction to the smaller consumer. If. :ffter a fair trial, they are found to lip jable. the' Commission will authorize 'different rates upon a showing made by the company or ihe citi- zens. Wherefore, ilu1 premises being considered and the Commission be- ing fully advised, it is. therefore. ordered that the Ada. Klectric Has Company shall put the follow- ing rates into effect in the city of Ada for current used for liithtins and power purpose: IjiRhtinj; Hate. First. 75 KWH per month at lie per KWH.
