     This Bond shall not be valid or become obligatory for any purpose until the
certificate of authentication  hereon shall have been signed by the Trustee,  or
its successor as Trustee, under the Indenture.

     This Bond is one of an  authorized  issue of Bonds of the Company  known as
its "First Mortgage Bonds," issued and to be issued in one or more series under,
and all  equally  and  ratably  secured  (except as any  sinking,  amortization,
improvement, renewal or other analogous fund, established in accordance with the
provisions  of  the  Indenture  hereinafter  mentioned,  may  afford  additional
security  for the Bonds of any  particular  series)  by a Restated  and  Amended
Indenture of Mortgage and Deed of Trust, dated as of September 1, 1999, executed
by the  Company  to  JPMorgan  Chase  Bank f/k/a The Chase  Manhattan  Bank,  as
Trustee,  as supplemented and amended by a First Supplemental  Indenture,  dated
August 13, 2002 (said Restated  Indenture as so  supplemented  and amended being
hereinafter  collectively  called the  "Indenture"),  to which Indenture and all
further  instruments  supplemental  thereto  reference  is  hereby  made  for  a
description  of the properties  mortgaged and pledged,  the nature and extent of
the  security,  the  rights  of the  holders  of  said  Bonds  and  the  coupons
appurtenant  to coupon  Bonds,  if any, and of the Trustee and of the Company in
respect of such security, and the terms and conditions upon which said Bonds are
and are to be issued and secured.

     To the extent permitted by the Indenture and as provided therein,  with the
consent of the Company and upon the written  consent or  affirmative  vote of at
least  sixty-six  and  twothirds  percent in principal  amount of the Bonds then
outstanding  and entitled to consent,  and of not less than  sixty-six  and two-
third percent, in principal amount of the Bonds then outstanding and entitled to
consent of each series affected thereby in case one or more but less than all of
the series of Bonds issued under the Indenture  are so affected,  the rights and
obligations  of the Company and of the holders of Bonds and coupons  appurtenant
to coupon  Bonds,  if any, and the terms and  provisions of the Indenture and of
any instrument  supplemental thereto may be modified from time to time, provided
that no such  modification or alteration  shall be made which would postpone the
date fixed herein or in the  Indenture  for the payment of the  principal of, or
any  installment  of interest on, the Bonds,  or reduce the principal of, or the
rate of  interest  payable  on,  the  Bonds,  or reduce  the  percentage  of the
principal amount of Bonds the consent of which is required for the authorization
of any such  modification  or  alteration,  without  the  consent  of all of the
holders affected thereby. The rights,  duties or immunities of the Trustee shall
not be modified without the written consent of the Trustee.

     As provided in the  Indenture,  said Bonds are issuable in series which may
vary as in the Indenture provided or permitted.  This Bond is one of a series of
Bonds  authorized  by the  First  Supplemental  Indenture  and  entitled  "First
Mortgage Bonds, 7.23% Series AE Due 2032" (the "Series AE Bonds").

     Pursuant to the  provisions of Section 8.05 of the  Indenture,  the Company
may request  the  Trustee to apply  moneys  deposited  with the Trustee  ("Trust
Moneys") for various  reasons  toward the  redemption of those Bonds,  including
payment of premium and accrued interest,  selected by the Company.  In the First
Supplemental  Indenture,  the Company has covenanted  that the Bonds may only be
called for  redemption  by the  Company,  as a whole at any time or in part from
time to time,  at a  redemption  price  equal to the  greater of (i) 100% of the
principal  amount  of  Series  AE  Bonds to be  redeemed  or (ii) the sum of the
present values of the

remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon (exclusive of
interest accrued to the date of redemption) discounted, at the then current
Treasury Rate (as defined in the Supplemental Indenture) plus 30 basis points,
to the date of redemption on a semiannual basis (assuming a 360-day year
consisting of twelve 30-day months) plus in each case, accrued and unpaid
interest on the principal amount being redeemed to the date of redemption.

     Notice of each redemption shall be mailed to all registered owners not less
than thirty nor more than forty-five days before the redemption date.

     Pursuant to the provisions of Section 8.08 of the Indenture,  the Series AE
Bonds are further  subject to  redemption,  in whole or in part,  by the Trustee
applying  certain  Trust Moneys which have been held by the Trustee for a period
of over two  years.  Any such  redemption  is made pro rata  among the series of
Bonds then  outstanding in the ratio of principal  amount.  Redemption is at 100
percent of principal, plus any premium due at the time of redemption and accrued
interest to the redemption date.

     If this Bond or any portion  thereof  ($1,000 or a multiple)  shall be duly
called for  redemption as provided in the  Indenture,  this Bond or such portion
thereof shall (unless the Company shall default in the payment of the redemption
price) cease to bear interest from and after the date fixed for redemption.

     Upon any partial  redemption of this Bond,  this Bond may, at the option of
the  registered  holder  hereof,  be either (a)  surrendered  to the  Trustee in
exchange  for one or more new  Series AE Bonds for the  principal  amount of the
unredeemed  portion of this Bond or (b)  submitted  to the Trustee for  notation
hereon by the Trustee of the payment of the portion of the  principal  hereof so
called for redemption.

     If an Event of  Default,  as defined in the  Indenture,  shall  occur,  the
principal of this Bond may become or be declared due and payable,  in the manner
and with the effect provided in the Indenture.

     A certificate in global form representing all of a portion of the Bonds may
not be  transferred  except as a whole by the  Depositary  for such  series to a
nominee of such Depositary or by a nominee of such Depositary to such Depositary
or another  nominee of such Depositary or by such Depositary or any such nominee
to a  successor  Depositary  for  such  Bonds  or a  nominee  of such  successor
Depositary.

     The Series AE Bonds are issuable as fully  registered Bonds without coupons
of the  denominations  of  $100,000  and any  multiple  of  $1,000  which may be
executed by the  Company and  delivered  to the Trustee for  authentication  and
delivery.  The Series AE Bonds,  upon  surrender  thereof to the  Trustee at its
principal  corporate  trust office in the Borough of Manhattan,  The City of New
York,  are  exchangeable  for other Bonds of the same series in such  authorized
denomination or denominations in the same aggregate  principal amount, as may be
requested by the holders  surrendering the same.

     The  Company  and the  Trustee  may deem and treat the person in whose name
this Bond is  registered  as the  absolute  owner  hereof,  for the  purpose  of
receiving  payment of or on account of the  principal  hereof and  interest  due
hereon, and neither the Company nor the Trustee

shall be affected by any notice to the contrary. Interest payable herein shall
be paid to the person in whose name the Bond is registered at the close of
business on February 1 or August 1 (whether or not on a business day) next
preceding the interest payment date, except for defaulted interest and unmatured
accrued interest on the Series AE Bonds called for redemption on a date other
than an interest payment date.

     No  recourse  shall  be had  for the  payment  of the  principal  of or the
interest on this Bond,  or for any claim based  hereon or  otherwise  in respect
hereof or of the Indenture or of any indenture supplemental thereto, against any
incorporator,  stockholder,  director  or  officer,  as such,  past,  present or
future,  of the Company or of any predecessor or successor  corporation,  either
directly or through the Company or any  predecessor  or  successor  corporation,
whether  by  virtue  of any  constitution,  statute  or rule  of law,  or by the
enforcement of any assessment or penalty or by any legal or equitable proceeding
or otherwise  howsoever;  all such liability being, by the acceptance hereof and
as a part of the  consideration  for the issuance  hereof,  expressly waived and
released  by every  holder  hereof,  as more fully  provided  in the  Indenture;
provided,  however,  that nothing herein or in the Indenture  contained shall be
taken to prevent  recourse to and the  enforcement of the liability,  if any, of
any  shareholder  or any  stockholder  or subscriber to capital stock upon or in
respect of shares of capital  stock not fully paid up.

     IN WITNESS  WHEREOF,  the  Company has caused this Bond to be signed in its
name by its President or one of its Vice  Presidents,  and its corporate seal to
be  impressed or  imprinted  hereon and attested by its  Secretary or one of its
Assistant Secretaries.

     SECTION 2.03. Optional Redemption.

          (a)  Notwithstanding  the provisions of Section 8.05 of the Indenture,
     the Series AE Bonds,  upon the mailing of notice and in the manner provided
     in Section 10.03 of the Indenture, shall be redeemable at the option of the
     Company,  as a whole  at any  time  or in part  from  time  to  time,  at a
     redemption  price equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the principal  amount
     of Series AE Bonds to be redeemed or (ii) the sum of the present  values of
     the  remaining   scheduled  payments  of  principal  and  interest  thereon
     (exclusive of interest  accrued to the date of redemption)  discounted,  at
     the  then  current  Treasury  Rate  plus 30  basis  points,  to the date of
     redemption  on a semiannual  basis  (assuming a 360-day year  consisting of
     twelve 30-day months) plus in each case, accrued and unpaid interest on the
     principal amount being redeemed to the date of redemption.

          (b)  Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 10.03 of the Indenture,
     in case of the  redemption  at any time of less  than  all the  outstanding
     Series AE Bonds, the particular Bonds or parts thereof to be redeemed shall
     be  selected  by the  Trustee  from the  outstanding  Series  AE Bonds  not
     previously  called for redemption as nearly as  practicable  pro rata among
     the registered  holders of the Series AE Bonds  according to the respective
     principal  amounts  of  such  Bonds,  provided  that  the  portions  of the
     principal of Series AE Bonds at any time so selected for redemption in part
     shall be equal to $1,000 or a multiple thereof.  (c)  Notwithstanding  that
     Section 8.05 of the Indenture authorizes the Company to request the Trustee
     to apply Trust Moneys toward the  redemption of Bonds to be selected by the
     Company, the Company does hereby covenant that the Company will not request
     the Trustee to apply any Trust  Moneys to the  redemption  of the Series AE
     Bonds except pursuant to Section 2.03(a) of this Supplemental Indenture.

     SECTION 2.04. No Sinking Fund.  The Series AE Bonds are not entitled to the
benefit of any sinking fund.

     SECTION 2.05. Bonds to be Issued in Global Form.

          (a) The Series AE Bonds will be initially  represented  by one or more
     Bonds in global form (the "Global  Bonds").  The Company hereby  designates
     The  Depository  Trust  Company as the  initial  Depositary  for the Global
     Bonds.  The Global Bonds will be deposited  with the Trustee,  as custodian
     for the  Depositary.  Unless and until it is  exchanged in whole or in part
     for Bonds in  certificated  form,  the Global Bonds may not be  transferred
     except as a whole by the  Depositary to a nominee of the Depositary or by a
     nominee of the  Depositary  to the  Depositary  or  another  nominee of the
     Depositary  or by  the  Depositary  or  any  such  nominee  to a  successor
     Depositary  for the Bonds or a nominee of such  successor  Depositary.  The
     Depositary  may  surrender the Global Bonds in exchange in whole or in part
     for  Bonds in  certificated  form on such  terms as are  acceptable  to the
     Company and the Depositary.

          (b) If at any time the  Depositary  for the Global Bonds  notifies the
     Company that it is unwilling or unable to continue as  Depositary  for such
     Global Bonds or if at any time the Depositary for the Series AE Bonds shall
     no longer be eligible or in good standing under the Securities Exchange Act
     of 1934, as amended, or other applicable statute or regulation, the Company
     shall appoint a successor  Depositary with respect to such Global Bonds. If
     a  successor  Depositary  for such  Global  Bonds is not  appointed  by the
     Company within 90 days after the Company  receives  notice or becomes aware
     of such  ineligibility,  the Series AE Bonds shall no longer be represented
     by Global Bonds and, subject to Section 2.07 of the Indenture,  the Company
     will  execute,  and the  Trustee,  upon  receipt of a Written  Order of the
     Company for the authentication and delivery of individual Bonds in exchange
     for such Global Bonds,  will  authenticate and deliver  individual Bonds of
     like tenor and terms in definitive  form in an aggregate  principal  amount
     equal to the  principal  amount of such Global  Bonds in exchange  for such
     Global Bonds.

          (c) The Company may at any time and in its sole  discretion  determine
     that the  Series  AE Bonds  issued or  issuable  in the form of one or more
     Global Bonds shall no longer be  represented  by such Global Bond or Bonds.
     In such event,  subject to Section 2.07 of the Indenture,  the Company will
     execute,  and the Trustee,  upon receipt of a Written  Order of the Company
     for the  authentication  and  delivery of  individual  Bonds in exchange in
     whole or in part for such  Global  Bonds,  will  authenticate  and  deliver
     individual Bonds of like tenor and terms in definitive form in an aggregate
     principal  amount  equal to the  principal  amount of such Global  Bonds in
     exchange for such Global Bonds.

          (d) In any  exchange  provided  for in  Section  2.05(b)  or (c),  the
     Company  will  execute  and  the  Trustee  will  authenticate  and  deliver
     individual Bonds in definitive registered form in authorized denominations.
     Upon the exchange of Global Bonds for individual  Bonds,  such Global Bonds
     shall be canceled by the  Trustee.  Series AE Bonds  issued in exchange for
     Global  Bonds  pursuant to this Section  2.05 shall be  registered  in such
     names  and in such  authorized  denominations  as the  Depositary  for such
     Global  Bonds,  pursuant  to  instructions  from  its  direct  or  indirect
     participants  or otherwise,  shall instruct the Trustee.  The Trustee shall
     deliver  such  Bonds  to the  Persons  in whose  names  such  Bonds  are so
     registered.

                                  ARTICLE THREE
