The Illinois Commerce Commission today pared to 42Mi per cent the Alton Water Co.'s 4V/ 9 per cent rate increase, according to a ruling announced at the Chicago offipe of the ICC. On Dec. 18, 1957, the rate hike granted by the ICC totaled 47>i per cent. Litigation Ihut followed took the case to the Illinois Supreme Court. The high court remanded the case to the ICC with instructions to reach a decision while taking into consideration certain factors in which the ICC had been in error, according to the court. The rate ruling announced today through Harry R. Begley. assistant attorney general with the ICC, indicates the ICC interpreted the Supreme Court ruling to mean that the ICC should revise its rate findings rather than discard the entire original proceeding* and start from scratch with the water company rate hike request, local attorney said.
