Power Co. An order from the Georgia Public Service Commission last week dured commercial power ratC3 in ninety-eight cities served by Georgia Power Company and placed the rate schedule on a uniform basis in the territory served by the com pany. The reduction grew out of an ap peal jjiada *s«verxl .months ago hyi 1 * Dr. R. C. Swint, Mr. O M. Ennis citizens in several Georgia towns ask ing for a uniform rote throughout the territory. Col. Erwin Sibley represented the citizen? in the argu ment before the commission. The power company appeared before the commission and several months was necessary to complete the hearing. The order will become effective af ter the December meter readng. The C©mmiB>ion ordered a like uniformity of vhe residential light ing and power rate in December of 1928, and the new rate will effect the following: The commercial lighting custom s who do not receive any power.

Engineers of the highway depart ment in the Augusta division ordered nil work on the section of the rood leading to the State Hospital between Bland Lumber Company and the end of the Wayne street paving to stop Monday morning, declaring that the section of the road was in the city limits and the Law would not permit the highway dopni£meni doing work within a municipality of a popula tion more than twenty-five hundred. Under the order the Sanitarium Avenue will be paved and the origi nal plans to pave the road in front of the T. O. Powell building and the now L. M. Jones Hospital building looping beck into the avenue, will be carried out. The State Highway was supposed to have rrached an agreement with the city to pave the section of the road that was within the limits and a survey had been made and construc tion work had started. The fill at Fi'hing Creek was being graded and had been pratically finished to Double Branch Filling Station when the order Hopped the work. It was learned that the city in 1925 agreed to turn the road at Fishing Creek and the Oconee River ovc the State Highway and that they were to make all repoirs and im provements and the city would give them entire control of these sections of road. The Highway constructed the bridges at the creek and river and built the fills several years ago and have maintained those roads since that time. and Mr. L. H. Andrews will appear before the Highway Board in At lanta Thursday to argue the matter. In the meantime the construction company has finished laying the base on the road down the avenue and around the grounds and are now waiting the settlement before fur ther work can be done. The work of raising the Fishing Creek fill and grading the other section of the road his been stopped. MISS MARY IVEY DIED THURSDAY EVENING of Milled gaville's Well Known >men Pen« Away.
