IT; fudge Dietrich Hearing Petition for Injunction to Restrain Mountain States From Rais ing Rates. WANT ACTION DISMISSED Deny Public Utilities Commis sion Has Jurisdiction and Holds It Cannot Interfere With Order of Postmaster General. The right of the public utilities com mission of this or any other state to Interfere with an order of the post master general, was squarely raised In the United States district court here today. Argument was heard by Judge Prank S. Dietrich on a motion of the Mountain States Telephone «& Tele graph company to dismiss the applica tion for an injunction of the Idaho commission to restrain the telephone Company from collecting an increase in telephone rates as authorized by Postmaster General Burleson. The commission was represented at the hearing by Its president, A. I>. Free hafer, and its attorney, Raymond L». Go veils. The company denies the right of interference. DENY MOTION TO REMAND. The public utilities commission made a motion to remand the case back to the federal court on the grounds it properly belonged there, the litigation being based on a state statute. Judge Dietrich denied the mo tion on the grounds a federal ques tion V. as involved and the federal court was within its jurisdiction. The motion to dismiss as inside by the company was then argued and sub ir- itted. It was taken under advise ment, parties to the action being given the right to file briefs. A decision is r.ot expected for several days. The commission Saturday filed nn application in the Third judicial dis trict court for an Injunction to re strain the company from collecting the proposed increase for telephone service In southern Idaho of approximately I BO cents per month.
