Beginning duly I the Annoying Dou
ble Fare Will Be a Thing
of the Past.
The Scrantou Traction company has
posted a notice in tho dispatcher's
office, that beginning with July 1, the
conductors will collect fare on the
South Side line to the city limits, in
stead ot m heretoloro to tho South Side
car ban, and from tho city lmits to
Greenwood. This action was taken
after a consultation between the city
solicitor and Jessup and Hand counsels
lor the iraction company.
When tho order takes effect, it means
that tho Scrauton Traction company is
a loser to a vary considerable extent,
and it is to be explained in this man
ner. The original company to whom
the charter was given, was the Scran-
ton Passenger Railway company, and
in its charter and franchise there was
no provisions made for transfers of
any character. Tue line of this com
pany casus at wutit is now known as
the Car Barn; from the cir barn to
the city line it ia owned and controlled
by the Valley Passenger Railway com
pany, aud from that line to the terini-
uus is the property owned by the
neranton and fittston Railway com
pany. The Scrantou Traction company
lias leased from th other three com-
paniss their properties, and each com
pany holds the Scrantou Traction com
pany responsible for a certain ainouut
Iu extending this fura to the city
line it means that tho Scrauton Trac
tion company out of its receipts col
lected through the city of Scranton,
must pay the Vnlley Passenger railway
company its proportion of earuiugs
oyer the line from the car barn to the
city limits. In other words, n loss ac
count on transportation is cansed by
this action, but the present manage
ment ot the scranton Traction com
pany is dtRirious of giving every facil
ity to the public, who are its patrons,
and nlso to meet tho views of tho city

The desire of the present management
is to please its patrons, even nt a sacri
