$3,000,000 More Yearly Needed
The city objects to a proposed aboil-'
tion of nil free transfers, the elimina
tion of three-cent exchange tickets from
the central delivery district and fare
charges for children by height rnthcr
than the age rule.
The increased tariff, estimated to
viehl $3,000,000 additional a year, was
'to become effective July 1. At tho sug
gestion of the Public Service Commls
ion tho company postponed tho tariff
until the commission rules on tho vari
ous questions raised.
Chairman Alney opened tho pro
ceedings by summarizing the complnint.
aimed at a proposed abolition of all
free transfers nnd the elimination of
three-cent exchange tickets in the cen
tral delivery section.
Speedy Hearing Desired
"This enso in of unusual Im
portance," commented Mr. Alney. "The
commission, in executive session, ex
pressed a desire that the full commis

"Questions pertaining to matters of

There are just two questions to be con
sidered. One Is the incrense which the

The other is whether the method of put
tins the incrense Into effect is just and
Mr. Alney was referring to tho city's
contention, expressed by City Solicitor
Smyth, that the convent of the munic
ipality is necessary before 11 fare in
crease is legal. The contract of 11107
between the city nnd the company is the
lmsis of Mr. Smyth's contrition.
Burden of Proof onu. R. T.
Mr. Alney concluded his remarks
with a statement that tho proceedings
would bo rushed through to a just con
clusion. "Tho burden of proof rests on the
respondent company to justify tho
necessity for this incrense," the chair
Mr. Alney informed Frederic Ij.
Itallnrd, of counsel for the company,
that the commission was ready to pro
ceed. Mr. llallard called Mr. Dunbar
ti' the first witness.
Tho company's flnnnclal vlco presi
