Attorney General Schaffer
Presents Petition on
Behalf of State
Tlio Dauphin county court to
day on petition of Attorney General
Schaffer issued a preliminary In
junction restraining the Bell Tele
phone Company, of Pennsylvania,
from charging the increased tele
phone rates ordered by the Federal
authorities. The hearing was fixed
for next Monday afternoon at- 2
The petition of the state authori
ties, which was presented by the
Attorney General in person and ac
companied by affidavits from Public
Service Commissioners Ainey, Mc-
Clure, Brecht, Alcorn and others,
averred that the Bell company had
not' complied with the provisions
of the Public Service Company law
which requires filing of rates with
the commission and declared that
the fixing of rates is a state matter
entirely. Mr. Schaffer appeared as
general counsel of the commission.
Governor Sproul having requested
him to act in—the matter.
Both Judges Kunkel and McCar
rell were on the bench and just be
fore Mr. Schaffer presented the peti
tion the new Attorney General and
First Deputy Attorney General Rob
ert S. Gawthrop and Deputy Attor
neys General Emerson Collins, B. J.
Myers and William B. Swoops were
formally admitted to the Dauphin
county bar on motion of Bieutenant
Governor Beidleman. Deputy Har
gest and Counsel Berne H. Evans,
of the Public Service Commission,
who are members of the Dauphin
bar, were also present.
The petition presented by Mr.
Schaffer required almost fifteen
minutes to read. It set forth that
the company is a Pennsylvania cor
poration, organized and existing un
der Pennsylvania laws; that it has
been ordered lo and has filed rates
with the commission, among them
a schedule effective June 21, 1917,
which can not be changed or discon
tinued by the company within three
years without approval of the com
mission. It is then set forth what
the company has done irt the mat
ter of the new rates, complained of
by the state, which it is stated be
came effective January 21.
Declared to He in Excess
The Federal rates are declared in
excess of what the Bell was au
thorized to charge by the state and
the petition avers that the com
pany in charging the rates complain
ed of is acting in violation of orders
of the commission and that the
charges are illegal.
"Neither the defendant, nor the
postmaster general, acting through
the officers and directors of the de
fendant, is authorized by law to
change thd tolls and charges deter
mined by said commission, except
with approval of the commission,"
says the prayer, which declares that
"the attemfit to change said tolls
and charges above set forth is an
impairment of the lawful police
regulations of this state, as ex
pressed in the Public Service Com
pany law."
In the prayer it is asked that the
defendant company be enjoined
from violating orders -of the com
mission and from- churglng or col
lecting the new rates until the com
pany applies to the commission for
approval. '
In answer to some questions from
the bench Mr. Schaffer said the po
lice powers of the state were never
delegated to the United States gov
ernment by any action in connection
with the telephone systems and are
in any event expressly reserved to
the state. He said that ho did not
know wherts the Federal authorities
got the right to increase the rates
in this state and that the Bell wus
a Pennsylvania corporation.
Judge McCarrcll asked if the gov
ernment had not taken over the prop
erty to whioh the Attorney General
replied that it had not, but was su
pervising and controlling it in the
functions of managing director.
"We will tlx next Monday, Febru
ary 3, at 2 o'clock as the time for
the hearing," said Judge Kunkel
The effect of the action Is to re
strai nthe Bell from charging the
new rates until the injunction pro
ceedings is ended. The injunction
may be- cither made permanent or

effects of Inhala

works of the Aetna Chemichl Co.,
at Oakdale. The decision' Involves
some unusual features. The defend
ant claimed that the man died fr'orn
pneumonia and It was found that
th , man had been made 111 by fumes,
which caused him to go home. Ho'
returned to work, but three days
later he suffered the same exper
ience. Pneumonia . set in. The
board holds that it furnishes "a
complete and unbroken chain of
events from an accident suffered in
course of employment until the
death occurred as a natural result
of the violence thus suffered."
In the Case of Wick vs. Trio
Waist Co., Philadelphia, the board
adopts conclusions of a medical ex
pert who holds that the man who
appears to have suffered nervous
ness from an accident can over
come his disability 'by going back
to work. A similar order is made
in Cnnazaaro vs. Frick Coke Co.,
Unlontown, in which it Is recom
mended that the man take up some
work which does not involve any
violent use of the neck.
The board disallowed compensa

Wright vs. Hodder Construction Co.,
Braddock; Gaviu vs. Hellpriri Mfg.

would have been further delayed.
