Kallroad Companies Muxt Make Spe- Party WASHIXGTOX, Feb. Inter- State Commerce Commission has ren- dered a decision in the complaint against the Baltimore Ohio for making spe- cial rates to local parties at the rate of two cents per mile, which is less than the regular rate for a single person, and for selling round trip excursion tijketa without publicly posting- the rates at which these tickets are sold. The commission holds that passenger excursion rates are required under the law to be published; that party tickets are not com mutation tickets, and when party rates arc lower than contem- poraneous rates for single passengers they constitute discrimination and are illegal. The Baltimore Ohio Railroad Company is therefore required to imme- diately cease and desist from the sale of party rate tickets and is ordered to print and post excursion rates.
