Fund Pleas Heard by High Court, Transit Company Contends New York Deposits Are Exempt. City Seeks Authority to Demand Facts of Hidden Accounts. The state supreme court yesterday heard arguments in the appeal of the Twin City Rapid Transit company from of the Hennepin county disthe order trict court directing the company to produce for the inspection city officials certain of its records of financial transactions. Simpson Appears for Company. Arguing for the company, Judge David F.

Simpson, maintained that the street car control law does not give power to city officials to carry on an inquisition or to compel corporations to disclose business transactions which have no relation to rate valuation hearings. The city mandamus proceedings in an have disclosed the started, disposition of $227,000 of the street car company's funds deposited in a New York bank. It is not within the province of the Minneapolis city attorney to examine personal records of the company, Judge Simpson said. Inspection of Book Denied. After the company submitted the proper records, Judge Simpson said, Mr.

Cronin demanded an inspection of the minute book of the street car company, and subsequent a refusal the city official applied to the district court of Minneapolis for an order compelling the defendant to submit all records. This, he said, is contrary to the intents of the state law, and he reiterated that personal transactions of the street car company have no bearing on the cost of operation or valuation fig. ures. He also argued that the requests for the list of stockholders and their addresses was not within the bounds of the city's jurisdiction and that this matter also is not relative to the question of rate investigation. "The city has no right to ask its stockholders what they did with their money," Judge Simpson said.

"This is essentially what they are doing when they ask the company to disclose what distribution was made of the $227,000 in question." Declares Lower Court Erred. Judge Simpson confined his opening remarks to an explanation of the law, and how it applies to this case. He pointed out various sections of the law to the court and said the lower court erred in ordering a writ of damus ordering the stockholders to disclose their private affairs. Court convened at 9:30 o'clock and the counsel for the streetcar company were the first to argue. Neil M.

Cronin, city attorney, and William H. Morse, and R. S. Wiggin, assistants, represented the city of Minneapolis. Judge Simpson was assisted by W.

D. Dwyer of Minneapolis as counsel for the Twin City Rapid Transit company. Mr. Cronin in his argument contended that the expenditure of the $227,000 in question is as material as any expendi00 ture of the street car company, and as such should be submitted for inspection by the city officials. He challenged Judge Simpson's statement that the street car control law does not give the power of this investigation, and read from the law where a commission or council can order the submission for inspection all records, refuse to submit this particular transaction it can likewise refuse to explain any expenditures of the company and designate which expenditures are terial or which expenditures are tive," Mr.

Cronin said. He pointed out that without the knowledge of this penditure, it is impossible to arrive at any accurate conclusion as to the costs of operation and maintenance of the Twin City Rapid Transit company. The supreme court, after arguments, took the matter under advisement. books and the accounts of the company. Taken Under Advisement.
