This means that double the one way fare will have to be paid on all trips from Washington. For instance it wouia cost sz to Baltimore and return. Instead of $1.75 as at present. It is like ly tnat the week-end excursion fare will be continued. The fare to New York, under abolition of the round trip would be $11-30, instead of a flat $10 as .at pres ent. It is understood that the fare to Chicago is advanced 50 cents one way. It will take many days to learn the de tailed Increases in commutation fares.
