Trains to and From Harrisburg
Carried Few Passengers
Officials of the Pennsylvania Rail
road, as well as those of the Reading
Railway, report a big falling off in
passenger traffic yesterday, due mostly
to the fact that New Ye.ir l);iy travel
ers heretofore have been mostly pass
holders. Few Harrisburg folks went
to Philadelphia to see the Mummers'
display, and local trains carred a very
small number of passengers.
On a morning train, yesterday, on
wnicfi there have never been less than
100 passengers leaving Harrisburg for
Eastern points, there were but twenty
seven passengers out of this citv. A
< umberland Valley train south-bound,
had Its full quota and was the onlv
train leaving the Pennsylvania Railroad
Mation, which did not show a decrease
in travel. The train, east-bound, leav
ing Harrisburg at 3:25 a. m , had but
one full car.
From the West travel was verv
light. Conductors on five trains out of
Altoona reported that they had but one
passenger until they reached Tyrone.
Another train had two women out of
Altoona and a third had but six pas
