Will Effect Every State in Which the Two Ct,

Harrisburg, Pas, Jan. 20.—The
Pennsylvania supremp court today
handed down an opinion which de-
clares the two cent passenger rate
unconstitutional. This decision Is
far reaching, inasmuch as it affects
nearly every state in the union where
euch a rate has been incorporated in
the statutes. The action of the su-
preme court of Pennsylvania will be
taken as the foundation to guide oth-
er state courts which will eventually
kil the two cent rate everywhere. The
railroads are feeling jubilant over the
victory as it means millions of dol-
lars to them.
