from the Inception of the proceedings

Mr. Phillips" WrVTild 'lib' '-MUlslled
With Ji'liic nnd it Half I'nder Cer
t itl ll Conditions.
President O. T. Bunion, of the Capital
i Traction Coiirpaiiy, appeared before Ihe
I Commissioners this mofiing in rtgard to
' tlie proposed lncreate or ieid for street
1 car?. He first asked whether there was
not a law passed by Ccigrefs regulating
the speed of chicles,
i He opposed tLe Increase of sjieed. The
I cable car, as was "well kiown, must run at
II ami- rate at every I nlm, so long as
. tLe grip's l.okl on the cable was main
Italned. l'urthermore, at the very points'
where the danger is great that Is, at
the curves a firm grip must be taken
'In the table and the tars must go rourd
at run speed. -
UB company was able to run the cars at
a greaierspeedlhanthenlncmllesaii hour
now kept, but he thought It was not ad
visable to do so. Home persons, he- said.
were so eager for rapid traruii that they
would want to go at forty-five mile" an
hour, but thjs would be very foolishly dan
gerous. MOMENTUM AT CROSSI.NGB.
In answer to (mentions, he said his cars
now run by momentum merely at crossings
and on meeting other cars.
MaJ. Powell asked It there wits not a
regulation in his coiiiiianr's charter on the
subject of speed. Mr. 1J union answered
there was in the Kocfc Creek (barter, lim
iting it to fifteen mih-i nn hour: nothing In
tne Georgetown charter.
PresJuVut Phillips or the Metropolitan
was present. He said the acts or January
IMS. 1KS7. and February 20. 1S!C, wou.d
permit the Commissioners to make u regu
lation ullowing greater speed- on one road
than a not her and a tone point than another.
He said urder existing conditions his road
was able to run only three and scvhi
eicbths miles In thirty-two minutes when
limited bv the law to nine tulles an hour.
The main difficulties were the delays
by the Anacostla cars running on the same
tracks, the stoppages by the Pennsylvania
railroads trains crossing Ids tracks, slstv
a day: waits ror vehicles ard for passen
ger, and the hill Irom G street t.. New
Vork avenue. He was not asking for any
thing lor the Capital Traction Company,
neither was he asking an exclusive privi
lege. The Metropolitan speed up to O
DELATED BY WAGONS.
M.iJ. Powill njkei ir the carv were i,ol
muih delayed on B street, between Sixth
and Ninth, by market wagons, and he an
swered yes. He also said In answer lo
MaJ. Powell that he was willing to give
Anacostia cars free tranxfers in order lo
kevp Ihem orf his track. It was not. how
ever, a collecting line In the seueof the law
compelling reciprocal transTers.
M r. innilop said he thought the lines were
connecting lines, since It was possible to
run from one road to the other. Itoails that
merely cross. he thought were not connecting
M r. Phillips said he was running now on a
twentr-elght minute schedule over the
Ninth street line, and to mak- that time he
must be allowed to make at the ends or the
road, where there was little (ross travel.
Ihe time lost by the stoppages referred to.
Endir present coislltions people wcrecom
nlalmng that the elcstrsc tars were "a
slow coach." not much better than horse
cars. He would be satisfied with a
Sthcdule run of nine and a half mile an
hour, wilh the privilege of reaihlnc that
average peed bv running faster. t the ends.
Mr. Dtiiiiopsaid his road was making -7-
nilnute time on tlie Seventh street branch.

President K. Y. Baker of the Columbia
road said his company would be glad to
have a slight Increase In the speed allowed
In order to reallv become rapid transit.
Atlheprcsen' ratelheycould do little better
than bv the old method. If twelve mile
an hour were alio wed. thecablecould make
It. but he Ihoaght It would be nnsire. Ten

Three Weeks More Will Be deed
ed for Tunnel Ime-tltnttloiu
When the engineer exports preivtring a
reiiort on Lydeeker's tunnel adjourn this
afternoon it will not meet again before
thegreat hole Is cleared of water.
"it may take as long as three weeks to
do that," said Gen. Craighlll to a Times
reporter. "1 have ordered Capt. Galllard
to put In another pump and push the work.
"Ton can depend upon it that we are
going to make no balNhearKd Job of this
Investigation, and when thecommisioners
report is finished it will be an ircii-clad one
that will obviate the necessity of any
more suspense about what the tunnel is
good for. There is no particular use
of hurrying the Investigation. The Con
gressional committee Is not jet formed."
In the interim the experts will return
to their respective homes.
Had the investigation not reached the
partially complctid condition It has,
an adjournment would still have been
necessary today, because Mr. Fitzgerald
is compelled to be at his desk in Boston next
