The people lost a point in the
fight for cheaper gas against the
People's Gas Ligftt and Gpke Co.
today when the decision of Judge
Scanlan, restraining the com
pany froni charging more 'than 80
cents per thousand cubic feet for
gas and impounding ''the differ
ence between the 80 centrate ajid
the 75 cent rate, the, maximum
fixed by the new ordinance, was
reversed ,by the appellate court.
..The company-, will continue to
charge at the 80 cent rate, and
the difference between that and
the ordinance rate will not be im
pounded. A bill is now pending"Jefore
the superior court, which will de
cide whether the company shall
be, enjoined from charging more
than the price fixed by the ordi
nance. ; Corporation Counsel Sexton
said he did not think the decision
was a blow to the ordinance, as
the equity of the bill now incourt
-Was not attacked, the judgment
merely eliminating the provision
for impounding.
