Mr. MacDonald, at the outaet of his remarks, saict It was refreshing to come here to meet » body of men who are absolutely fair. He said If the figures contained In the letter of Mnrvln Shieb- ler, which had been aubmitted to the Board were correct, the Board haa a right Co believe they are entitled to a reduction. He declared, however, that thi re was another aide ot the question. The reduction in the coat of boiler fuel, he aaid, affected the company very lit¬ tle, because they do not use much of it. Mr. MacDonald said all the company aaked or Is entitled to ia a fair return on Ita Investment and that la all the Public Service will allow it. He said further that the company Is not givlrip the service to which the people are en¬ titled, and has not been able to because It has not had money to spend. The last year, he said was $79,000 and fo|', the first part of the preaent year about $40,000. The company had never paid a dividend on Its common stock and he had not received a c«nt of aalary aa preaident In three yeara. Prior to that, he aaid he had put his nalary back into the bualneaa for common stock. On rnotlon of Mr. Munke. it waa ile- olded ko arrange a conference, and Mr. Ma<i^)onald auggested that a large hall be secured where a large number of people could assemble and be able to ask qiieatlona.

Mr. MacDonald, at the outaet of his remarks, saict It was refreshing to come here to meet » body of men who are absolutely fair. He said If the figures contained In the letter of Mnrvln Shieb- ler, which had been aubmitted to the Board were correct, the Board haa a right Co believe they are entitled to a reduction. He declared, however, that thi re was another aide ot the question. The reduction in the coat of boiler fuel, he aaid, affected the company very lit¬ tle, because they do not use much of it. Mr. MacDonald said all the company aaked or Is entitled to ia a fair return on Ita Investment and that la all the Public Service will allow it. He said further that the company Is not givlrip the service to which the people are en¬ titled, and has not been able to because It has not had money to spend. The last year, he said was $79,000 and fo|', the first part of the preaent year about $40,000. The company had never paid a dividend on Its common stock and he had not received a c«nt of aalary aa preaident In three yeara. Prior to that, he aaid he had put his nalary back into the bualneaa for common stock.
