ignored the evidence as to the in

fonning the basis of the valuation
of July 1, 1914.
"The trial court was of the view
that the rule adopted by the comtis
sion was correr. We are unable to
concur in that 'iew.
"The principal object of valuation.
of cost. is to provide a rate base. and
the statute clearly contemplates that
the commission shall ascertain the
value as of the time of said valuation
and not as of some anterior date. It
has been ruled many times thatth.re

"In the presa.nt case the comrni

conditions would continue. In assum

"As conditions changed %,nel values
were substantially affected it would
have been th- further duty of the
commission to exercise Its discretion
and revalue the property. The con
ditions existing were world-wide, and.
while their duration and future ef
feet were problematic, there was no
immediate prospect of a return to
normal conditions. It may lie sug
gested, although the point was not
raised in th" opinion of th' com
mission, that practical difficulties
would have been encountered in an
attempt to asewrtain the increase in
value of the property between July 1.
141, and D)ecember 31, 193G. But
there was substantial evidence lI
fore the coumission as to the rise
in values, and a brief investigation
would have enabled the commission
to determine, with substantial ac
curacy, how much, in fairness, should
be added to the earlier valuation.
"Much reliance was placed by the
trial court upon the language of for

Byt we find nothing in the report as
we read it justifying the action of the
