Rate Ruling Lrliins Breaks In Coal Road Shares. With railroad attorneys expressing satisfaction rather than disappoint ment over the decision of the I'nltod States supreme court handed down Monday in the so-called commodities clause CHse. the stock market and rail road Interests generally, after a fore noon of uneasiness followed by a slump in the market In the early af ternoon, quickly adjusted themselves to the situation with the conviction that the coal carrier will be practi cally unaffected by the Interpretation of the law barring "legal ownership only." When the real meaning of the deci sion was understood in Xew York City the stock market, quickly rallied and Phlledalphla and Reading, which had declined 3 points on first reports from Washington, almost immediately re covered this loss, as did Delaware and Hudson and Pennsylvania, which also had dropped 1 4 and and 1 point re spectively. Thereafter, with the re ceipt of more reassuring news, steady advances were recorded. Reading reaching 151, Its highest point since tHOo, and making a range from 143, its low point for the duy. During the hours of chaos promi nent attorneys were pressed for Inter pretations, as they saw It, of the deci sion. William S. Opdyke, general coun sel for the Delaware and Hudson, was one of the first to give out an Inter view. He said. "This decision allows the railroad companies to continue as now consti tuted; that is, those which do not own the coal mines directly, but exercise control through coal companies whose stock they own. Reading, Pennsyl vania, and In part the Erie, Lehigh Valley and Jersey Central, as well as the Ontario and Western, come within the interpretation of the court's deci sion." William S. Jenney, president and general counsel of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad company, said: I "The decision of the suprerrtV court directly affects our company. The Lackawanna owns its coal properties directly, and although I have not seen the complete decision it Is apparent that the Delaware, Lackawanna ' and Western will have to divest Itself of the legal ownership of these properties and form a separate company to take them over. . "It seems to me that there must be some 'joker' in that decision some where that will put a different lhshlon this question of direct and indirect 6W-Tl!hlp." - . IXSAXK MAX CUXXIXG FOKGF.K.
