UTILITIES FIGHT CENTERS IN N,Y Governor Lehman Insists on Far Flung Probe of All Companies.

Thayer in 1927 and 1928, when he was chairman of the senate public service committee, to the Associated Gas and Electric company, which asked if his work had been "satisfactory," and pointed out that "detrimental bills" had been killed in his committee. The senate judiciary committee will begin investigation of the letters Monday.
