In this same opinion and order of the commission it was stated, under the head of “finding of tentative values.' that “by reason of the inability of the staff to make complete appraisals of all of the petitioner's property, thus a 1 fording more complete evidence, and the necessity of early hearings, several cities were prevented from making desired in vestigations as to values. “The commission believes, therefore, that It Is unwise In these cases finally to fix the value of petitioner’s property. “It will be understood, therefore, that in each of the casee now under consid eration, the commission will fix tenta tive values, which will be used only for the purpose of the particular- cases now before the comnrlseton. “The tentative values used, although $42)00,000 less than claimed by petitioner, are liberal.
