271 U.S. 456


An order of the Interstate Commerce Commission, made upon petition of two railroad companies, permitting the one to acquire control of the other by stock ownership and leases, with the object of coordinating and improving their operation in connection with another railroad system, is an order relating to transportation within the meaning of the Act of October 22, 1913, and therefore a suit to set the order aside cannot be brought in a district where neither of the petitioning companies resides. P. 271 U. S. 459.

2 F.2d 765 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the district court sustaining a plea for the dismissal of a suit to set aside an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission upon the ground that it was in the wrong venue.
