Irrigation Company filed with tho
Supremo Court an application for a
writ of prohibition, stopping tho
tho Public Sorvico Ccmmlsslon from
tho hearing which was to havo been

permanent Injunction. Acting upon
this application tho court temporari
ly has restrained tho Commission
from proceeding with tho case, pend
ing a hearing which will bo hold be
foro It on Fobruury third.
Tho C. O. I. Company bases Its
application for n permanent Injunc
tion on tho allegation that the Com
mission has no Jurisdiction In tho
case, hocattso a Caroy Act company Is
acting as nn agent of tho state. At
torney Uauoral Hrown will appear for
tho Commission and will attempt to
show cause why tho Injunction should
not become permanent.
It Is clenr, apparontly, thnt Irriga

undoubtedly bo under the jurisdiction
of tho Commission. Under tho Car
