ChunuU* is one of those fortu-
nate cities, of whom there are
hundreds in the country, that
wisely refused to sell out their
Municipal Electric and Gas Sys-
tems to the private Interests.
Now they own these properties,
free and they are not loaded
down with a burden of Interest
on borrowed money which seems
to be oue of the many afflictions
suffered by the private utility in-
For example, the Oklahoma
tras A Electric Co., in their sworn
statements to the Corporation
Commission, alleges an Invest-
ment Iii property used In serving
Ml Reno, In excess of $800,000.00.
The Corporation Commission has
generally established 8% as ,i
fair return on investment foi
electric utility companies. An
8% return in El Reno Is more
than $64,ft00.oo annuall.
Chanute has no interest to pay
on their electric plant investment,
which no doubt accounts for their
net earnings in 1929 of $59,583.-
00, with a top electric rate of
6c per KWHr.
Mr. Naylon’s stutcmuuts force-
fully illustrate the essential dif-
ference bet wen public and pri-
vate ownership. Under private
ownership of electric utilities, the
Investment upon which returns
must be earned is a constantly in-
creasing amount; under public
ownership, the Investment upon
which returns must be earned Is a
constantly decreasing amount. He
nmy argue that even tho the debt
on a public owned system Is
paid and there are no longer In-
terest charges to meet, the In-
vestment Is still there and should
be profit producing. I will con-
cede this point. Chanute’s elec-
tric system certainly Is produc-
ing this profit; last year In the
form of $59,583.00 cush, and
probubly an equal amount to the
users of electric service in the
way of rates nearly 50% lower
than electric rules In El Reno.
Mr. Naylon also says the ron-
son Chanute’* Municipal Gas sys-
tem made such a targe profit in
1929 was because, not being un-
der regulation, it was permitted
to earn 28.2% on the valuation
of its property.
Bear this in mind. Chanute
has a top Gas rate of 60c per
1000 cu, ft. Chanute purchases
their gas supply at the gute from
pipe lines of prlvtfte companies at
25c and 20r per 1000 cu. ft.
If under such conditions they
could make net earnings of 28.-

Huff was In the capital the other
day—the first anniversary of the
'meeting which led to creation of
the Farmers National Grain Cor-
Chairman Alexander Legge of
the Farm Board Introduced Huff,
a medium sized, baldlsh, quiet-
spoken fellow, as the “biggest
grain merchant In the United
States." That was a fair estimate
of Huff's position as president of
“We are getting uloug,” Huff
suld modestly. “I figure we ought
to handle about 200,000,000 bushels
of the 1930 wheat crop and from
40 to 60 per cent of tho crop in
"You know wo made our first
sale to a foreign customer on
June U. Well, sir, in the first
wo sold 11,000,00 bushels of wheat
"We have divided the country
into five zones with a headquar-
ters and branches in each zone.
We have representatives where-
ever wheat Is dealt in. Every day
in every wheat market of the
world we sell or offer wheat."
“In one day recently,” Huff con-
tinued, 'our organization sold
wheat lu eight foreign ports. The
other day we sold and delivered
to the mill door of a co-operative
consumer’s society in Scotland
a cargo of wheat. In that transac-
tion only two groups ever owned
the wheat Involved—the producer
and the consumer.
Huff was more than pleased
about the incident. The purpose
of the Farmers’ National Grain
Corporation Is to cut the middle-
men in marketing of farmer’s
crops. The corporation was or-
ganized with the assistance of
Legge and the Farm Board. It is
a $10,000,000 corporation and it is
tlves throughout the United
States. He figures the corpora-
tion now is handling more grain
than any other organization In
the world. Asked whether this
expansion had not aroused opposi-
tion from private commission men,
"The grain trade now' has re-
spect for us, and that’s what it
didn’t have u few months ago."
