Some the men students evidently sympathize with the movements for a number signed the pledge which is being circulated. A plan for getting Justice Thieke is in fact so Little difference in opinion this Gas question for the most part thai it would seem Ames has an Opportunity right today to set a Pace in the adjustment Public service rates in the state Iowa. Ames has already done so in Many municipal ways. The ame budget plan City financing the Ames method City accounting the Ames plan combining a City manager Wuh t a Council form gov in in eat All these Are innovations brought about by Ames and setting a High Standard in municipal affairs. The Tribune sees no reason Why . Rice s administration cannot distinguish itself by a practical working hash the administration Public utilities rates if . Rice will abandon his Manifest Bias in favor the Ca company will proceed the Assumption nut Tho Gas company should show that it is emitted to the Rai in rate which it asks and will cooperate with the Council in getting at Tho fact and adopting an ordinance that will be workable and will establish Justice. Now lets see what the facts Are. From these we can learn just Haw easy it would tie to arrange an adjustment. Over 200 readers the Tribune who Are user a have signed a protest against the raise in rates which the Gas company Bas asked without an investigation to show 1. That ame la not being ask a for an excessive rate to make up for losses in Arr in service to Nevada outside am 2. That the Aine Gas Plant is efficiently operated and managed 3. Thai Anu s is not being asked to pay exclusive charges to cover a pen to develop . Tenney # Ness a that 1 signing they further say 4. I believe a meter a Plant to a it s incurred in experiments other and principal bust and Selling Gas plants. Bould be installed at the can know whether we Are asked substitute a minimum charge. Which would make Bim furnish Gas for every Dollar he collects. And Why he suppose a merchant could charge fifty cents additional each month Eveaj % to makes a Purchase from him the logic the situation is incontrovertible. President ten Nee is forced to seek to bolster up i position by a instatement fact. That itself shows the Force the Gas users demand. On this subject the Tribune done to knots where Mayo Rice stand so far As the Gas company goes. It do # know that he personally makes no Effort to Char i patients 50 cents a month any other sum a boing ready to serve them. It also knows thai a majority the Council is opposed to such a charge by the Gas company. Again the More than 2on a user make tim following demand 2. And for the readjustment rates As recommended by professor Peisch to he based upon an Independent audit made by the City and paid for by the Gas company to tie furnished every month so that the Council Shalt base the rate for Gad upon the it expense and the profits being made by Tho company that both a company and consumer May to protected fairly. A i to by president Tenney say �?oo.k., hut the. Y had better hire this auditor. And thus the Gas consumer the Independent audit necessary by month. I am delighted with the plan president Tenney a question who shall pay i not exactly in Point. Ii the essentials he is agreed. The taxpayer is different from the Gas user. Why he should pay is yet to be answered by . Tenney but a the essential he is agreed with the Gas user where the mayor stands the Tribune docs not ores Ann to say. Nor can it predict the Council s position although it would appear that the majority should accept this basis rate making. It i very Plain then that Little difference separate the iwo most interested parties a a the Gas by and the a user regarding either the an investigation a a i rate making. Ext thing is to get the investigation and Tho a ordinance to provide for an adjustment pay for Gas which b president Tenney a inefficiently wasted. Said Over his own signature in print that he has no object iou a Why not. A competent committee anyway a a he asks regarding a he first demand the Tribune Reader who Arga . On the second demand a say a was Teddy used to say the third a again i say �?~bully�?T.1 the need by i to facts pets Hooks which i a meter into is therefore us in a comp heed Tho prop rates than Ames yet Seti. Tribune yesterday carried business Man which a name a hot says in a suggestion from is the fairest it has effect a a committee professor t to enter into an investigate ii is further evidenced i that to it Council has employed t a. Make an audit the company a Adit while absolutely k., do not in i i lets rate making and is ii Jufu tory not Only to professor a but to at least one half the members the t City Council. And 21 that the mayor in an Effort to satisfy the demand the people for an absolute investigation has appointed a committee some Uno Fli Tai character without the advice Sanction the Council to make some hurried sort report recommending something. There you have mayor Council Gas company and people demanding an investigation some Cha act. Anti tie a company and the people Are agreed that it should be the Thoro and searching character. At least half the Council is so agreed then conies the demand for a meter at the a Plant a demand made by Over 200 Gas users who believe that the first essential in arriving at economic efficiency is absolute knowledge what is produced. On this score president Tenney a said a the Tribune has the right idea. Unfortunately he also said there were three such meters at the Gas Plant which is untrue to the knowledge his own employees who had made such a statement publicly even before he denied it and Whit ii a Tribune investigation has since shown untrue. The Tribune does no to know How the mayor stand this essential matter. Nor does it undertake to say where the Council stand but it believes a least half and probably a majority understands the necessity a measurement production in establishing Cost production As a basis for rate making. The a users who have petitioned the Council thru the tribute Coupon further say j. For the abolition the readiness to serve Barge and the substitution therefore a minimum charge which would make the Iowa Public service company furnish Gas for every Penny it collects and base the charge for that Gas in proportion to the Cost the service rendered. President Tenney is oppose i to a change which would abolish the readiness to serve charge and a i. A a in a Row its a. Of Faber r. Agg Ann professor a. M. Peisch a Complete professor Faber to a i the engineering exit Rii nent station at the College is familiar with such work competent absolutely honest. It is in Lints with his duty service to the people the state. He is familiar with both engineering and economic efficiency a it enter into such problems. A splendid Choice for chairman. The Tribune und Ftak is to say that the Gas use would he satisfied with Uch a selection. It at one time discussed . Faber a a possible investigator with . J. It. Larson attorney for the a company and . Larson declared he would be acceptable to the company. Or. Tenney i nut expressed himself. Neither a the mayor the Council. But certainly the suggestion should be acceptable to them. Professor agg is a competent Engineer Long experience in varied lint lie happens to to Mayer Rice a own Choice i unofficial committee. Certainly he would be acceptable to the mayor. He is open minded competent . And sound judgment. The Tribune undertakes to say that he would be acceptable to the a users. He should be acceptable to the Gas company. Professor Peisch is possessed Long experience in a study economic efficiency in Public utilities accounting. Ii know # what is needed in an investigation from that standpoint. He was employed by the Council to make an audit the Gas company a books. He has a High standing not Only at the College but wherever in anus his work is known. His suggestion a fair base for rate making recommends him to the a users. Certainly the Gas company could not object to him. Here the Tribune believes is a splendid Opportunity to bring the warring faction the Gas problem to a basis common understanding an excellent it Hance to get what is desired Justice to the Gas company and to the a user. This Pap a has no axe to grind and has had none. It believes that in the suggestions above it has outlined a plan to which the Gas company is already committed for the most part and to which the Gas users the City will agree. It believes it is the Best plan thus far suggested by far the Best. It believes that mayor Rice administration if it has the Wisdom and foresight to adopt it will go Down in history As establishing the first workable and just solution to the Public service charges problem in the state Iowa.

To the Ames Tribune i would ask the Ames City Council not to Grant any increase in Gas rates until an investigation by competent engineers shows 1 that Ames is not being asked for an excessive rate to make up for losses incurred in service j a to Nevada outside Aims 2 that the Antes Gas Plant is efficiently operated and managed i i hat a Mes is not being asked to pay excessive charges to cover expenses incurred in expert a Nae Fca to develop . Tenney a other and principal business that designing and Selling a plants. I i believe a meter should by installed at the Gas Plant so we can know whether we Are asked to pay for Gas which is inefficiently wasted. I believe no rate should be established which do not provide i for the abolition the readiness to serve charge and the substitution therefore a minimum a charge which would make the Iowa Public service company furnish Gas for every Penny it collects and base the charge for that a in proportion to the Cost the service rendered y and for the readjustment rates As recommended by professor Peisch to be based upon an a a a Independent audit made by the City and paid for by the Gas company to be furnished every month so that the Council shall base the rate for Gas upon the expense and the profits being made by Tho company that both Gas company and consumer May to protected fairly.
