After a strenuous fight which lasted
man)' months nnd which was watched
with unusual Interest In all pafts of the
country, the thtce-cent faro controversy
in Toledo, Ohio, has at last been settled.
Judge Killlts, in the United States Dis
trict Court of that city, has decided that
the city ordinance enforcing this rnte is
conllscnlory nnd he has oidered n tcturn
to the old rates. (He .cents for each pas
senger except during the morning nnd
evening nisli hours, when the rate shall
remain at tiuee cents.
Decision In tile enso was n victory fnr

was on between the Toledo Hallway &
Light Company and the city authorities,
thcie developed a situation In Toledo
which his never had a parallel In thl
countr.v The compnn, after March 17,
when tho otdlnanco became effective,
declined to accept the three cents offered
by passengers- who boatded its cars, nnd
those who did not pinducc- the live cents
which tne company declared to be Its
icgular i ate, were permitted to ride free.
Thcio was no acceptance of tlnee cents
for o ride except during the rush hours.
Kor live months the company operated
Its cars undei thin legulatlon and Its
officers llgurcd that the losses Incident to
this arrangement nveiagcil H.OW a day.
i'et they would not retire fiom their
original position In the matter and they
detci mined to fight It out to the end.
They declared the principal of the lower
fure scheme to be all wrong and on the

weio being serldusly Impalied b the low
rates, they fought every move for en

Darl In the fight Henry h. Doherty.
head of the company, offered to permit
the city authorities to take over the car
s.vstem and operate It for a year to prov
that the low rotes of fare were unprofit
able. The city declined the offer, but It
submitted to the voters a proposition to
have the municipality buy the property
and operate it under u municipal owner
ship scheme. The voters, at n special
e'eetlon, agreed to tnls plan, but there

Judge Killlts laid upnr the city authori
ties the bin den of proof to show that the
company's revenue, under the three-cent
fare ordinance, would pay Its operating
expenses and leave a suiplua of from
JSOn.OOO to JliXl.dOO a jear. Such proof was
rot produced. In his opinion.
Judge Killlts said that the city should
rave had, when It pnsscd the three-cent
fare ordinance, knowledge that Its term
were reasonable. Neither the city nor a
court has the right, ho said, to fix an
nrbltrnry rate of fare without the knowl
