Rochester and others?" questioned
submitted them as furnished by
Mr. Smith.** Ham answered.
Ham was then asked if he knew
that companies who used the power
of his company, are beginning to
generate their own power. He answered
that he did not know this.
"Do you know," Chamberlin
asked, "that the American Ice and
the Washington Hotel companies
would install their own plants tomorrow
if they had the room?"
"No, I did not know this," replied
"Is it not true that the Potomac
Electric Power Company sells current
at cost to the Washington
Railway and Electric Company, that
it in turn sells it to the Washington
and Rockville. Capital Traction.
City and Suburban. Washington and
Old Dominion and other companies

This was acknowledged to be
true, and at the yame time it was
explained that this transaction takPing
place outside the District was
not within the jurisdiction of the
commission. The fares of the Washington.
Baltimore and Annapolis
company, when operating in the
District, are given to the Washington
Railway and Electric Company,
it was explained.
Clayton then desired to know
whether Ham thought the users of
electricity would be reconciled to
the application of the profits of the
Potomac Electric Power Company
to the deficit of the Washington
Railway and Electric Company. U
was Hams opinion that the users
of electricity would stick to the
power company as long as ft is to
their advantage to do so.
Fights Lower Rate.
Asked by Chamberlin if he did
not think that the present cost of
electricity was too high. Ham
answered that he did not think it
should be lowered. He also stated
that he did not think it made any
difference to the people should it be
decided to pay the money to the
company that was now being impounded
as the result of a ruling
by the court.
Robert B. Swope. manager of the
Southern Oxygen Company of South
-Washington. Virginia, was introduced
as a witness by Chamberlin.
, Objection to his testimony by coun1
scl for the Washington Railway
t and Electric Company resulted in
his* withdrawal. It was decided that
although the current used by the
Southern Oxygen Company originated
in the Potomac Electric
I Power Company's* plant, beins: sold
to the Washington Railwav and
Electric Company, who in turn sold
it to the Virginia company, the fact
that it was not subject to the ruling
of the commission excluded it from
Rate lp M Per Cent.
Chamberlin then introduced G.
Hall White, superintendent of the
firm of Chapin and Sacks. White
stated that he had previously been
employed by the Atlantic Sugar Refining
Company and other large
manufacturers. He estimated that
the increase in price of electricity
had been *4 pe* cent and in replying
to the question of how this affected
the price of Ice cream he
quoted the samG percentage. White
in answer to a question, admitted
that Chapin and Sacks had. because
of the high price of electricity, contemplated
the installation of their
N Mark !,ansbur;:h. office manager
.and member off the firm of Lansburgh
and Brother, testified that
thf principal fault he had to find
-with the Potomac Electric Power
Vompanv was the service. He
pointed out the loss to the firm in
business as a result ot* the breakdowns.
Ho ptated that they would
not hesitate to install a service of
their own if they had the available
sahmiU Coal Prleea.
S. J. McCaffrey, purchasing asent
for the District Paper Company,
then produced figures to substantiate
the claim that he purchased
and received bids on coal substantially
less than that paid by the
Potomac Blectric Power Company
and from the <*ame company.
The meeting adjourned to meet at
2 o'clock this afternoon.
During the morning session it
was again pointed out that the suburban
lines of the Washington
Railway and Electric Companywere
financially in need of assistance
and in order to come to their
aid it was advocated that the Potomac
Electric Power Company be
allowed to increase the rate of
electricity and apply the profit to

ARREST OF LONE
SOON BY POLICE
Bankers' Description Results
Of Suspects. .
With several suspects under police
surveillance, an early arreat la
expected in connection with the
daring daylight hold-up, which
netted a lone bandit $S40 in tlO ana
120 bank notes, at the People'*
Commercial and Savlnga Bank
branch, SSOS Georgia, avenue northwest.
shortly before noon yesterday.
Descriptions 'furnished by Ernest
8. Brown, vice president of the
bank and manager of the Georgia
avenue branch, who was forced to
turn over the money to the robber,
and John T. Clancy, president of
the company, who had spoken to the
man earlier in the day about a loan,
have given the police what they believe
to be a clue to the perpetrator
of the deed.
The photograph of one of the
suspects was taken from the police
"rogues gallery" by headquarter*
detectives working on the case last
night, to be shown to Brown ano
Clancy for Identification.
Entering the bank at 11:45 o'clock
yesterday morning, about two hours (
after he had askA President Clancy
for a $1,000 loan, the bandit pointed
a revolver at Brown?the only person
in the bank at the time?and
ordered him to "pass over all or
the <10 and 920 bills you have."
Brown lifted a small tray of bank
notes to the top of the counter anr
proceeded slowly to comply with
the demands of the robber, hopinu)
semeone would come Into the bank
or would notice the hold-up from
the outside. The bill tray was
emptied, however, without discovery.
In the same drawer from
which the bills had been taken
were several thousand dollars in
large bundles, wlilch the bandit
overlooked in his hurry. He also
loft a 910 bill on the counter.
Having placed the money in his
roat pockets. the bandit, still
flourishing the revolver, backed to
the door and warned Brown not to
shoot or shout. He then turned
and ran swiftly south on George
avenue. Brown got his revolver
from beneath the counter and
started In pursuit, firing a shot at
the fleeing robber, which went wild.
At Sherman avenue and Park
road the bandit hailed an automobile
driven by A M Clemmer, of
7?1. Harvard street northwest, and
commanded him to drive to Fourteenth
street and Columbia road,
claiming he was going on an
emergency hospital call. Arriving
at Fourteenth street .and Columbia
road, the bandit leaped from the
car. and going north on Fourteenth
street ? ?? soon lost in the noontime
Not knowin* of the bank robbery,
but made suspicious by the
action* of hl8 passenjrer. Clemmer
went to the Tenth precinct police
station and explained the incident.
A detail of policemen was sent to
the place but a search failed to
reveal any trace.
The bandit is described as between
25 and 30 years* old. smooth
of face, about 5 feet 10 inches in
hflaht. of slender build, dark complexion,
dressed in a neat blue suit
and wearing a straw hat.
