Squires and II. J. Brownrlcar to the of

Tha railway nroblem Is the most so
rious tho new Government must face.
The railway has become unsafe for
travel, tacks rolling stock and motlvo
nnwer. and only the expenditure of
manv millions can remedy the situation.
Vnder the Reld railway contract tho
Ileitis are supposed to repair the line, but
it Is evident they are not In tho finan
cial position to do so, the railway, they
contend, belnr a losing concern. A uov.
frnment expenditure ot 110,000,000 to
repair the railway will place n heavy
financial burden on tho country.
To ease the situation the Government
has issued tenders for four large steam
itilps for the North and West coasts, and
the press urges that tne present. Day
service be doubled.
Tho Ico blockade has also seriously In-
trrffred with the export of fish to tho
Mediterranean, and fish exporters fear
that the halt million quintals of fish yet
unshipped will reach Latin countries too
late for the Lenten season. In which caso

TWO RATE RAISES
REFUSED BY COURT
Jamaica Gas and Brooklyn
Railway Lose Appeals.
Justico Greenuaum denied yesterday
tho applications ot two public service
(orporatlons for permission to charge
more monoy for service.
In the case ot the Jamaica Gas Light
Company for an Injunction against tha
Public Service Commission he decided In
favor of the commission. The company
wanted tho commission restrained from
enforcing tho law which declares' U a
thousand cubic feet to bo the legal rate
for gas In Jamaica. The company
n anted the commission restrained so
that it might charge LIS.
In the case of the Brooklyn City Rail
road Company for permission to Issuo
refund slips so that it could charge more
than a five cent fare pending an appeal
Justice Greenbaum decided against the
applicant. The company tried to enjoin
the Public Service Commission from in
itrlerlng with Its contemplated fare In
crease and failed.
The city of New York, through Cor
poration Counsel Burr, moved to Inter
ne as a party defendant In the Ja
maica Gas Light Company case. Justice
Ureenbaum granted the motion.

Seventy-five of the 125 members ot

have not lent their aid to the Inter
church movement, were eald to be tak

Dr. Riley explained that this Is not a

tho meaning of tho word. While In

It was stated at tho Municipal Dulld
Ir.R that several American Legion mem
bers who had appeared thero to Inquire
as to what servlco they could render
were found to bo insufficiently shod for
thoir work. Thsy were ndvlsod that It
would be most unwleo to risk ontrnct
ItiET serious illness by tackling tho snow
piles without proper protection.
Tho only woman snow shoveller whoso
name wns recorded by the city officials
was Mrs. George Alexander Wheelock,
of $0 Madison avenue, a member of Bar
bara Frlotehle Post of tho American Le
gion, who volunteered 'to drtvo a Street
Cleinlng Department truck.
To-day the city officials plan a big
cleanup of the downtown business sec
tion. They Intend to gather all of tho
forces that have been working abovo
Fourteenth street and to concentrate as
many as posslblo on the streets down
town. Health Commissioner Copeland.
who also toured tho food district during
the day and conferred with tho Mayor
about tho urgent necessity of clearing
the avenues of traffic there, said that he
was sure tha olgest part of the trouble
would bo overcomo before this evening.
At tho ofllccs of the New York Kail
ways Company It was etated that tho
wholo system might be In operation to
morrow. The Third Avenuo line was
gradually overcoming tho difficulties In
Forty-seoond street, where Just about
half of tho tracks were free from snow.
When he wasn't hustling around get
ting cussed by truckmen yesterday tho
Mayor found Inspiration to issue the
following appeal to the great public of
the City ot New York :
"The people during tho tnmier time
have block parties and enjoy" themselves
mmentelv. Jlanv people might navo
snow parties and have a great deal of
fun. If the people will get together on
their block, have a snow party nnd open
up a passageway through the street to
that the fire apparatus can get through
they will get a whole lot of fun out of
It. and at tho same time reduco the tiro
hazard In their particular neighborhood.
I would also suggest that tnc c;iy gut
ters and sidewalks bo cleaned. This
will aid In a crista like tho present."

TO KEEP JAPANESE
FROM OWNING LAND
British Colombians Utge Ac
tion on Canada.
Vancouver, B. C, Feb. 14. Immedi
ate action to prevent Japanese owner
ship of land In Canada was urged on the
Dominion Government to-day by the
Associated Boards of Trade ot British
The erzanlsatlen ftrtseaaccd that at
Its annual convention It had passed a
resolution asking the appointment of a
commission to devise a method of mak
ing it impossible for "Orientals and un-
i desirable aliens to own, lease or other
wise control land In Canada."
I A sharp debate between H. B. Morley,
sponsor of the resolution, and Japanese
Consul Uklta preceded the vote. Morley
said that the number of Orientals in the
province was probably a larger propor
tion ot the total population than was the
case In California.
Iklta said that many Japanese had
taken out Canadian naturalization
papers and could not be prevented from
owning land. He denied that a Jspaneso
syndicate had bought or Intended to buy
tho Cold Stream estate near Vernon.
Appealing for fair play to his country
men, ho said they were good citizens and
anxious to assimilate and that Japan
