Allowed 2 1-2 Cent Unto.
In the case of the Washington -
Southern, the Corporation Commission
declined to permit a charge of :i cents
a mile, but entered an order allowing
a rate of 2 1-2 cents to be charged, thus
putting the line on the same basis with
the other trunk railroads of the State.
Tiie Washington-Southern wa3 not
satisfied with this ruling, and took an
appeal to the Supreme Court, where
the case is on the docket awaiting- ar?
gument at the March term.
Inasmuch as the arguments advanced
for a 3-cent rate are the same in the
present case as in that of the Wash?
ington-Southern, there would appear
no reason to doubt that the judgment
of the commission ,wlll be the same.
In that case, the decision of the .su?

Supreme Tribunal Will Soon
Reach Adjournment?Several '
"While a good many cases pending in
the Supreme Court of Appeals have
been passed to the March term, this
does not relievo the docket as a whole,
since it is the court's custom to dis?
pose of all cases before adjournment
in the early spring. However, argu?
ment and submission have proceeded
rapidly since court met on January 3,
und it is probable that adjournment to
March will soon be reached.
It is a matter of comment among
lawyers that the docket In Virginia's
highest court is never really congested,
while in the other States suits drag
on interminably because of the
plethora of matters on the docket.
This Is supposed to be due to the pro?
cedure in this State, under which the
court or or one of the judges, in term
or vacation, passes upon petitions and
grants or refuses writs of error and
appeals. In other States only an ap?
peal is necessary to get a case up for
