Johnson yesterday that tho railroads wcro Informed what tho formal decision of tho commission would bo a day bqfore It was made public, has given rise to a new storm of protest among tho com muters. That tho commission 'dealt un fairly with them Is tho opinion of all who took part In tho rato light.
