Witness at Crosser Hearing
Says He Wanted, to Be
"On the Inside."
FOR "COMMON PEOPLE"
Julian Pierce Gave Up Shares When
"Things .Went on Bum" Vote
The Crosser bill, providing that the
District of Columbia shall take over the
local street railways and operate them,
will be voted upon by the. House District
Committee tomorrow morning.
At 1 be conclusion of yesterday's hear
ing the committee unanimously agreed
to make the bill the special order for a
meeting at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.
While other, requests for hearing have
been made. It Is unlikely that the commit
tee will further delay a vote upon the
Representative Crosser, author of the
bill, told the committee yesterday that
be desired' to leave the city Saturday and
thought that the committee had already
heard enough on the subject The com
Julian Pierce, chairman of the public
utilities committee of the Study Club in
Economics, who also described himself
as a farmer, writer and lecturer on
economic subjects, "a man who has al
way lived with the common people" and
yet who had made some Investments in
local and other corporations, was the
last and only witness before the com
As to "Common" People.
Chairman Ben Johnson Inquired as to
what the witness meant by "common"
people. "Do you mean In contradistinc
tion to the high-brows referred to by
Mr. Welliver yesterday?" he asked.
The distinction was not clearly drawn.
On the point of Investments the chair
man of the committee brought the frank
admission from the witness that he had
become a Email holder of stock in the
local public utility corporations in order
tc "qualify as a sleuth." He was pressed
for the number of shares he had pur
chased and said it had been one in each,
"in order that he might get on the in
side and learn the game."
Mr. Pierce later admitted that he had
subsequently sold his stock at a loss
"because of the slump that followed the
Introduction and passage of the tariff
and some other bills which you gentle
men here brought In. Things then went
on the bum," he added, much to the
amusement of Congresrman Wlnslow, a.
The Crosser bill presented a local
problem, the witness declared, though he
was in favor of the general proposition
of municipal ownership. Asked whether
he would include such public utilities as
food, clothing, and shelter, Mr. Pierce re
plied that he would, "If the people
In the majesty of the democracy so de
manded." Thrre Is a Limit!
Municipal fish boats, which should go
down the river and out Into the bay to
catch the fish now used for fertilizer raw
material, and bring them to the people of
Washington, was also advocated by the
member of the Study Club, but he balked
at the. ' suggestion of Representative
Johnson that the District operate mu
nicipal watermelon boats.
The witness gave as his reasons for
municipalizing the street railways that
he was opposed to despotism in all forms;
that there is absolute political despotism
In the District; that the sen-ice of the
street ralln ays is unsatisfactory: that the
people rebuild the properties and make
presents of them to the corporations;
that municipal ownership will "electro
cute the power of the stockholders" and
will ultimately result In a :-cent fare.
Mr. Pierce added that the companies
pack the people into the aisles of the
cars, don t give enough transfers, and
handle their accident claims Improperly.
Representaties Prouty and Johnson
wanted to know whether the witness
thought the government handled claims
against it in a more expeditious or satis
factory manner, and the latter replied by
discriminating between the general and
the municipal governments.
Crosser llecomra Restive.
Members of the committee wanted to
know- how the money for taking oer the
street railways was to be raised. The
witness favored the issuance of bonds "as
far as necessary."
Representative Crosser became restive
under the continued questioning of the
witness by other members of the com
mittee. and remarked that much of what
the witness was saMng was repetition of
what had been testified by previous wit
nesses, to which chairman Johnson re-
"Well, there is much of this that I
never heard before in my life."
But the committee acquiesced in the de
sire of Mrs. Crosser to suspend, and
oted to make the bill the special order
for Saturday morning.
EVEN CUPID WAS POWERLESS.
I.ltllc tore of God Was Poor Ally
of Representative Barnhnrt.
Not even Dan Cupid could force a, night
session of the House last night although
Representative Barnhart, in conjunction
with the little god of love, sought to
bring this about
"One of the happiest events of my
life Is to take place In Indiana Saturday
afternoon." said Barnhart "I want to
go there, but I want to vote on this bill
before I go and unless we have a night
session we cannot reach a vote Friday."
Barnhart later explained that his son
is to be married Saturday and he must
attend the ceremony. The anti-trust pro
gram vote was finally arranged with
Representative Shreve, of Pennsylvania.
