No. 4

Argued November 23, 28, 1927

Reargued October 15, 16, 1928

Decided January 2, 1929

278 U.S. 322


1. An order of a district court of three judges denying an interlocutory injunction will not be disturbed on appeal unless plainly the result of an improvident exercise of judicial discretion. P. 278 U. S. 326.

2. Evidence to prove the value of plaintiff's natural gas land, like that considered in United Fuel Gas Co. v. R. Co. Comm'n, ante, p. 278 U. S. 300, held, on the authority of that case, to be insufficient to support the burden of proof in a suit challenging the adequacy of rates fixed by a public commission. P. 278 U. S. 326.

14 F.2d 209 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree denying an application for a preliminary injunction in a suit by the Gas Company to restrain the Commission from interfering with the putting into effect of a new and higher schedule of gas rates.
