For nearly six years afterward Robertson was a fugitive from justice. He was arrested last April as he was about to cross the Canadi. an border.

It was after the battle of Arbela in 331 B. C. Alexander the Great was the speaker and his words were said to Darius of Persia. Arbela was one of the decisive battles of the world: Alexander with 40,000 Greeks had cut to pieces the Persian army of 200,000. And now Darius who, the morning before, had proudly boasted that he ruled the world, was suing for peace at the hands of the great Alexander who wanted to rule the world. Darius offered the great Greek half of Asia as the price. It was then that Alexander made his famous speech quoted above, and thereby turned the course of history. The point we desire to stress is that in his laconic way, Alexander had voiced a principle which has always been true, and upon which your electric light and power company is operating today. It is the old, old truth that a Man, a Country or a Corporation cannot serve two masters. Kansas Gas and Electric Company serves but one master the Public. Our one excuse for existence is to serve that Public to the very best of our ability, in furnishing it with light and power. You know how true is the old saying: "A lie travels farther and faster than the truth." It makes no difference whether it is an intentional or an unintentional lie it hurts just the same. Both combine to tear down a service which means everything to the community in prosperity, growth and convenience. When anyone of the countless individuals of the Public comes home and touchesva button, we must have electricity on tap, to answer that touch with a flood of light. We must be prepared to give all the power and light our customers want at the time of the "peak load" those periods at the close of day and at dawn when everybody seems to want light or power at once and to maintain our equipment capable of giving this service, even though at some other periods not one-tenth as much power is required. It is to our interest to serve the public but it is to the Public's interest to help the utility in its service by honest, open-minded co-operation. Your co-operation determines our ability to serve. Misunderstandings and lack of "team-work" hinder us in our service. Study the problems of the electric light and power company. Your team-work will bring you returns in service satisfaction.
