Judge Foust. wa.= busy all day today with the trial of liie cas>^ of the state vs W. E. Mal-^y. charged with felonious assault, and !u' crjii 'd not be reached by the a;;orn<-ys for Mr. Flemming. Just as soon as the court has a leisure hour, however, the lawyers for plaintiff will ask that a i^-m- porary writ be issued enjoining the defendant company from takin? any drastic move until the case is finally adjudicated in court. It is the contention of the plaintiff that the -Vattiral Gas company contemplates a raise in rates to 30 cents per thousand feet for gas. He also charges that th^ company disclajms anjr responslbilltr for the J5 dej-osfled with the T.iylor company and ;ha; ii has notified the consumers that another $5 must be deposited with the new management. Failures to coir- ply with these conditions Is to be met with a shut down of the plant, the petitioner asserts. Mr. F'emmlng contends that, having deposited $5 with the Taylor company the money should pass to t::'- .N'aiural Gas comriny as the successor of the Taylor company and th.-ft there is no necessity for another d*- poeii. The advanc':d rate is also objected to and th'- rilleged threat of the company to susp'.-nd operation cf the gas plan* is ciaimed to be utiiaw- ful unless den" imaer certain conditions. The plaintiff, on behalf of th- people of Gss Ciry asks that th>' defendant be required to give at !»afi .•3" days notice, before going or.t ct business.
