Committee to Study Missouri Utilities Order. The Missouri Public Service Commission which held a hearing on its general order No 20, affecting the conduct of water works and lighting plants, has appointed a committee to take up the study of the order and submit objections and proposed changes. The order was the subject of much protest from representatives of cities owning plants and of private plants at the recent hearing and the committee appointed by the commission is instructed to meet in St. Louis or Kansas City the latter part of this month or the first part of September and agree on the changes desired. The commission then will decide whether another public hearing will be necessary before formally promulgating its order. Among those on the committee are Water Commissioner E. E. Wall, of St. Louis, and John Donnelly, representing the water works of Kansas City.
