reducing existing freight rates about 26
percent. All of tho main lino rail

prevent tho stato officials from rnforo

ranged between tho railroads and the

wero to put the 2-cont law In fores.
The railroads agreed lo give tho 2

asked ludgo Mcl'hrrson to give thorn
that much time to see how tho law
would affect their revenues. For soven
months tl.o railroads have sold tickets
