EXPECT DECISION IN GAS CASE
FROM JUDGE BALDWIN
Judge Jesse Baldwin's decision in
the s uit of the cit yagainst the gas
company is expected daily. The
judge will decide whether or not the
city has the power to look at the
books of the gas company to find the
actual physical value of their prop
erty. This information is absolute
ly necessary. With it the city ex
pects to prove that the gas company
has been earning a fair return on its
investment and that the $10,000,000
impounded by Judge Gibbons as
overcharge belongs to the people of
Chicago and should be paid back to "
them in rebates.
Arguments on the petition of the
city for a right of access were closed
last Friday. Judge Baldwin took the
case under advisement
Attorneys for the gas company
have told the judge they would not
obey if he told them to open their
books. They contend he has not the
right to do this, that he should with
hold his ruling until they can get into
the Illinois supreme court on a writ
of mandamus and try to compel the
case to go back to Superior Court
