Decided February 19, 1923

Page 261 U. S. 268

2. A street railway company has a constitutional right to a reasonable return on the value of its property used in the public service if it has not contracted the right away. P. 261 U. S. 272.

3. A contract between a city and a street railway company considered and construed as fixing fares for the first year of operation under it, but as leaving unfettered the rights of the company and of the city, respectively, thereafter to charge and prescribe other fares that are just and reasonable. P. 261 U. S. 273.

4. A decree enjoining a city from enforcing street railway fares found to be confiscatory should be so framed as to protect the city's right to prescribe the same fares if, through change of conditions, they become just and reasonable. P. 261 U. S. 275.

Modified and affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the district court permanently enjoining the City from enforcing an ordinance prescribing fares for the Railway Company.
