5. FORMAL COMPLAINTS. 1908-1932.

Physical Description: 57cf.

Scope and Content Note

Selected cases arranged by case number in ascending order. Documents composing cases placed in the following categories in the following order: Commission reports, legal documents, Commissioner's notes, memoranda, evidence collected by C.R.C., correspondence, transcripts, exhibits, and C.R.C. Engineer's valuation reports. Arranged in reverse chronological order thereunder, unless otherwise stated below.
Formal complaints could be brought by the Commission's own motion on behalf of the people of California, or upon complaint of a third party, but having for its object the rendition of an order or decision which could be enforced by the Commission. Formal complaint hearings were governed by the standard rules of courtroom procedure.
Each case is described briefly in a paragraph statement in the biennial reports ( Journal of the Senate and Assembly [1908] Appendix Vol. 4, pp. 48-72, [1910] Appendix Vol. 5, pp. 73-94) and the annual reports of the Railroad Commission ( Reports of the California Railroad Commission, 35 Vols.), for the year in which the formal complaint was filed. Includes a statement of the nature of the case and its current status at the time the report was printed. Cases listed by case number in ascending order. The Commission published every few months its opinions and orders ( The Opinions and Orders of the Railroad Commission of California, 42 Vols.). Opinions and orders comprise a description of the decision reached and a discussion of the testimony and evidence which led the Commission to come to its conclusions. Arranged chronologically in volumes by date on which the decision was reached. Both the Reports and the Opinions and Orders are fully indexed in each volume, both by the name of the individual company involved and by the case number.
Materials arranged in the following categories:
 

Reports

Scope and Content Note

Originals or copies of opinions (statement of the Commission's position on the issues raised by a case which was a precedent to be applied to similar cases in the future), orders (requirements carrying the force of law for a utility company to upgrade services, reduce rates, and/or repay consumers for past overcharges), and dismissals (a brief paragraph explaining the reasons why a case was dismissed). Identical to reports published in bound volumes of opinions and orders mentioned above, with the exception that the unpublished reports contain the names or signatures of those Commission members who were responsible for the decision.
 

Legal Documents

Scope and Content Note

Contains certain of the following: formal complaints by plaintiff(s) stating the nature of the alleged violation of the Civil Code or Commission rulings; defendant's answer--reply to the formal complaint arguing the legality of the defendant(s) actions; notice of motion to dismiss--giving detailed legal arguments by defendant(s) for a dismissal; demurrers (plea for dismissal) from defendant(s) or defendant(s) council stating legal grounds for dismissal of case; and consent forms from plaintiff(s) stating that a case could be dropped. Defendant's answers occasionally include copies of articles of incorporation, agreements, contracts, mortgages, and local ordinances bearing on the case.
 

Commissioner's Notes

Scope and Content Note

Handwritten notes summarizing the most important testimony and evidence presented in a particular case. Probably used in the preparation of opinions, they are suggestive of what testimony and evidence most strongly led the Commission to reach its final decision. These notes exist only in a few cases. They have been preserved only when they are legible and sufficiently detailed to be of significant research value.
 

Memoranda

Scope and Content Note

Copies of correspondence sent between Commission members expressing opinions on the nature of a case, and correspondence and reports from C.R.C. departments explaining the nature and history of a given case, providing technical information, and offering suggestions as to the decision the Commissioners should reach. Reports emanate most frequently from the Engineering Department (dealing usually with the condition of equipment, quality of service provided, and safety factors), the Rates Department (involving the operating expenses of a utility and the legitimacy of rates charged or proposed rates), the Auditor's Department (auditing company books), and the Stocks and Bonds Department (reporting on the financial state of a utility and the advisability of allowing further stock and/or bond sales).
 

Evidence Collected by C.R.C.

Scope and Content Note

Statistical data and narrative reports from C.R.C. departments, and data requested from the defendant(s), complaintant(s), and other utilities involved in similar operations as those of the defendant(s). Includes data on the income and expenses of various utilities, confidential lists of stockholders, and narrative descriptions of services provided. Similar to the type of information available in the exhibits, with the exception that this evidence was not assigned exhibit numbers and was not made public. It was for the confidential use of the Commission in reaching its decisions.
 

Correspondence

Scope and Content Note

Contains certain of the following: requests from persons or organizations not directly involved in a case asking for information on the case, or clarification about the nature of the Commission's decision (often letters received many years after a case was decided); copies of the C.R.C. secretary's replies; letters from plaintiff(s), defendant(s), or their lawyers requesting clarification of the legal nature of the case; copies of replies by the Commission's secretary or Commission members; complaints from the public about services provided by the defendant(s) or about rates charged; petitions either favorable or unfavorable to the defendant(s); copies of Commission requests for technical information from the defendant(s), complaintant(s), and/or utilities involved in similar operations to those of the defendant(s); replies providing the information requested; and descriptions by the defendant(s) after a decision was rendered of what actions were being taken to comply with the Commission's order(s).
In some cases includes correspondence involving informal complaints which were later incorporated into a formal complaint case. This correspondence usually comprises a copy of a statement by the Commission explaining the nature of the case, letters from the public complaining about utility services and/or rates; requests by the Commission for the utility(ies) involved to reply to the complaint(s) and if possible to reach a mutually acceptable agreement with the complaintant(s); and statements by utility(ies) to the Commission explaining their position on the complaint(s) and describing what action, if any, they intend to take.
 

Transcripts

Scope and Content Note

Includes testimony by witnesses and councils' statements. Comprises testimony of plaintiff(s) as to how they had been treated in violation of the law or C.R.C. rulings, of utility users other than the complaintant(s) describing typical services provided and rates charged, of utility officials explaining the legality of their rates and the adequacy of their services, and by technical experts (such as engineers and auditors) about the nature of services provided and the cost of providing such services.
Statements by Council for the plaintiff and defendant are in some cases placed in a separate volume and in some cases bound with the witnesses' testimony. They contain a deliniation of the legal positions of the complaintant(s) and defendant(s), giving statuatory references. Concluding summaries by council of the evidence and testimony provided are also included.
 

Exhibits

Scope and Content Note

Documents numbered by C.R.C., presented by complaintant(s), defendant(s), intervenors, and the Commission itself in support of their various positions. Composed largely of statistical data including charts of rates charged for services, distances between various points goods were transported, rates charged by other utilities (including utilities in other states) for similar services; income and expenses of utility companies; deeds, agreements, contracts, and ordinances bearing on the case, cost of construction and maintenance of utilities as well as reproduction costs; maps of railroad lines; drawings of equipment; and blueprints of dams, buildings (such as railroad stations), and bridges; as well as photographs of equipment in use and of the construction of dams and railroad lines. (Note: large maps, drawings, diagrams, charts, and blueprints, as well as photographs have been filed separately. For a more detailed description of these items and references to their locations, see P.U.C. Map Book.)
Between 1917 and 1920 the exhibit room staff of the C.R.C. composed lists of the exhibits in each case (including a brief description of each exhibit and its date of submission). Where these lists still exist they have been filed in the first folder of exhibits in a particular case to act as a table of contents. The exhibits are arranged in the order they appear in the exhibit list (note: not all exhibits listed still exist).
 

C.R.C. Engineer's Valuation

Scope and Content Note

Report on the value of all the physical property of a utility, prepared by the Engineering Department. These reports usually include a map of the utility system, a description of the means by which values were set, a brief corporate history, a summary of the findings, and an extremely detailed valuation of all the physical property of a utility (including in the case of railroads the cost of railroad ties and spikes). These reports were the result not only of an investigation of company books, but also of on site investigations involving, in the case of railroads, travelling along every inch of the line noting all physical property. These valuations are especially useful in research into the nature and extent of the operations of the state's railroads. In 1912, the Commission on its own initiative ordered all the state's railroads valued as of that year (see cases 129-213).
In certain complaint cases, C.R.C. Engineer's valuations were numbered as exhibits and are therefore located with the exhibits rather that filed separately. Such cases are duly noted below.
Note: transcripts and, less frequently, exhibits often relate to more than one case. When this occurs the material is filed with the case with which it was originally filed by the Commission. Other cases, or applications, to which material relates are listed immediately after the title of the case with which the material is filed. Such instances are cross indexed.

6. FORMAL APPLICATIONS. 1912-1928.

Physical Description: 37cf.

Scope and Content Note

Selected applications arranged by application number in ascending order. Documents from application proceedings placed in the following categories in the following order: Commission reports, legal documents, Commissioner's notes, memoranda, evidence collected by the C.R.C., correspondence, transcripts, exhibits, and C.R.C. valuation reports. Arranged in reverse chronological order thereunder, unless otherwise stated below.
A formal application is a request for some right by a utility or by a person or corporation seeking to become a utility, such as an application for a certificate of public convenience and necessity, an application to increase rates, an application to build tracks across the right of way of a road or railroad, or an application to issue bonds or sell stock. Unlike formal complaint cases, there is no complainant or defendant; yet, an applicant may be opposed by a protestant(s) whose interests conflict with those of the applicant's. A third party, called an intervenor, may become involved--either in support or opposition to the applicant.
Each application is described briefly in a paragraph statement in the annual reports of the Railroad Commission, which includes a statement of the nature of the application and its current status at the time the report was printed. The Commission published every few months its opinions and orders in bound volumes. Opinions and orders comprise a description of the decision reached and a discussion of the testimony and evidence which led the Commission to come to its conclusions. For full references to these sources see series entry 5, FORMAL COMPLAINTS, 1908-1932.
A register for formal applications filed between 1912 and 1917 is available in the Selective Archives Record Group (F3566-5). Volume arranged by application number in ascending order. Lists application number, date application was submitted, name of utility making application, brief statement of the nature of the application, date when hearing was scheduled, and the date on which a decision was reached.
Materials arranged in the following categories:
 

Reports

Scope and Content Note

Originals or copies of opinions (statement of Commission's decision), orders (requirement carrying the force of law for a utility company to upgrade services, reduce rates, and/or repay consumers for past overcharges), and dismissals (a brief declaration stating that an application had been withdrawn. Identical to reports published in bound volumes of opinions and orders mentioned above, with the exception that the unpublished reports contain the names or signatures of those Commission members who were responsible for the decision.
 

Legal Documents

Scope and Content Note

Contains certain of the following: applications to change rates, to issue stocks and/or bonds, to purchase a utility, for a certificate of public convenience and necessity, or to construct tracks over the right of way of a road or railroad (note: often exhibits required by the Commission to be included with an application were attached to the application itself and are therefore filed with the legal documents - these can include the following: articles of incorporation, maps of crossings, agreements, deeds, and descriptions of proposed stock and/or bond issuances - such instances are duly noted below). Also contained in this category are objections from the public, municipalities, or other businesses to the proposed application; replies from the applicant to objections; and petitions from the applicant to formally drop the application.
 

Commissioner's Notes

Scope and Content Note

Handwritten notes summarizing the most important testimony and evidence presented in a particular application proceeding. Probably used in the preparation of opinions, they are suggestive of what testimony and evidence most strongly led the Commission to reach its final decision. These notes exist only for a few applications. They have been preserved only when they are legible and sufficiently detailed to be of significant research value.
 

Memoranda

Scope and Content Note

Copies of correspondence sent between Commission members expressing opinions on the nature of an application, and correspondence and reports from C.R.C. departments explaining the nature and history of a given application, providing technical information, and offering suggestions as to the decision the Commissioners should reach. Reports emamate most frequently from the Engineering Department (dealing usually with the condition of equipment, quality of service provided, and safety factors), the Rates Department (involving the operating expenses of a utility and the legitimacy of rates charged or proposed rates), the Auditor's Department (auditing company books), and the Stocks and Bonds Department (reporting on the financial state of a utility and the advisability of allowing further stock and/or bond sales).
 

Evidence Collected by C.R.C.

Scope and Content Note

Statistical data and narrative reports from C.R.C. departments, and data requested from the applicant(s), protestant(s), and other utilities involved in similar operations to those of the applicant(s). Includes data on the income and expenses of various utilities, confidential lists of stockholders, and narrative descriptions of services provided. Similar to the type of information available in the exhibits, with the exception that this evidence was not assigned exhibit numbers and was not made public. It was for the confidential use of the Commission in reaching its decision.

Exhibits

Scope and Content Note

Documents numbered by C.R.C., presented by applicant(s), protestant(s), intervenor(s), and the Commission in support of their various positions. In rate applications usually comprises statistical data including charts of existing and proposed rates, distances between which goods are transported, the rates of similar utilities providing similar services, and income and expenses of utilities, the cost of construction and maintenance, valuations, deeds, agreements, contracts, and local ordinances dealing with utilities. Application to purchase utilities and/or to issue stocks and/or bonds frequently include valuations, data on projected income and expenses, mortgages (existing and proposed), lists of stockholders, data on proposed financing of purchase or of issuance of stocks and/or bonds, deeds, agreements, contracts, and local ordinances. Applications for crossing(s) usually contain maps, profiles, and diagrams of proposed crossing(s) and diagrams or plans of proposed signalling devices. All applications may contain maps and profiles of railroad lines, water canals, transmission lines, telephone lines, and oil and gas pipelines; drawings of equipment; and blueprints of dams, buildings (such as railroad stations), and bridges; as well as photographs of the construction of transmission poles and the construction and operation of dams and railroad lines. (Note: oversized maps, drawings, diagrams, charts, and blueprints, as well as photographs have been filed separately. For locations and for more complete descriptions of these items see P.U.C. Map Book.)
Between 1917 and 1920, the exhibit room staff of the C.R.C. composed lists of the exhibits in each application proceeding (including a brief description of each exhibit and its date of submission). Where these lists still exist they have been filed in the first folder of exhibits in a particular application to act as a table of contents. The exhibits are arranged in the order they appear in the exhibit list. (Note: not all exhibits listed still exist.)
 

C.R.C. Engineer's Valuation

Scope and Content Note

Report on the value of all the physical property of a utility, prepared by the Engineering Department. These reports usually include a map of the utility system, a description of the means by which values were set, a brief corporate history, a summary of the findings, and an extremely detailed valuation of all the physical property of a utility (including in the case of railroads the cost of railroad ties and spikes). These reports were the results not only of an investigation of company books, but also of on site investigations involving, in the case of railroads, traveling along every inch of the line noting all physical property. Valuations were extremely important in applications involving tariff rate changes and the sale of utilities. The Commission's ability to reach an equitable decision was based on its ability to precisely judge the financial condition of the utility it was dealing with.
In certain application proceedings C.R.C. valuations were numbered as exhibits and are therefore located with the exhibits, rather than filed separately. Such cases are duly noted below.
For further C.R.C. valuations see series entry 13, P.U.C. VALUATIONS, 1910-1926. Also see series entry 14, VALUATIONS FILED BY UTILITIES, 1930-1931.
Note: transcripts and, less frequently, exhibits can relate to more than one application. When this occurs the material is filed with the application it was originally filed with by the Commission. Other applications, or cases to which the material relates are listed immediately after the title of the application with which the material is filed. Such instances are cross-indexed.
