prior to a petition for rehearing which was denied without more. P. 269 U. S. 357.

Writ of error to 192 Cal.192 dismissed.

Error to a Judgment of the Supreme Court of California sustaining upon review an order of the state Railroad Commission which increased the rates demandable by a public service corporation for supplying water for irrigation purposes.
