The special Judges named by Gov-

Supreme Judicial district of disqual-
ification to try the case of tbe Pan-
handle Telegraph & Telephone com-
pany versus the City of Atnarllto as
to whether an Injunction craiuted
temporarily by Judge Frank P. Crec-
ver of the Thirty-first Judicial dis-
trict against the Panhandle Tele-

straining the collection of an Increase
of 2.1 cents pejr phone to be collect-
ed and applied to the use and bene-
fit of the said company should be
perpetuated or dissolved decided in
favor of the former course.
The telephone people held that
they are now operating more than
I'iOO phones and that under the con-
ditions of their franchise they have
the right to advance uniformly on
all phones 23 cents each. The city
held that the telephone ccmpnny has
not tne number of pnones us con-
templated by the ordinance to war-
rant the Increase. This contention
assumed form of Injunction proceed-
ings and Judge P.rownlng having cer-
tified his disqualification Judge

and granted the re'strnlnln; order as
indicated. The order granted by
Judge Greever temporarily provided
