1UILWAY RULES VIOLATED
A igorou- complaint w as filed jeMcrday
by Oipt Jacob Freeh, concerning alleged
violation li the Columbia Hailwaj Cmi

that Hie Commifcuoiicrs ntnilre the Com
pany to oltey life own regulations, and that
the practices alleged fcluill be discontinued
The rirt thing to whkh he dini t atten
tion it. the "failure to slop for a man when
he signals at the regular popping place"
It is a rule, lie s.ith, to stop onlv on the
near hide of a crossing, and in man in
stances the gripman gives no sign that he
fceeh the man.
Another complaint filed is that the
conductor rings the bell before the man is
safel on and a third is that the bell is
rung before tlio passenger is safel off
lie cites instance, and gnea the da
aud iKJiir accidents have occurred from
this eaabe One was m the case of a man
thrown to the ground and hurt.
He distinctly states in his communication
to the Commissioners that he las no
blame to the charge of either gripmen or
conductor, as the origin and continuance
of the practices complained of "are evi
dently the resuilt of the policy of the
management of the road, and have re

shall keen posted In its cars a notice re

No action was taken testerday by the
Commissioner!? upon the application or Uie
Eckinglon ami boldlers" Home Knilway
Company to locate a temporary stable in

be considered to-day
It is the intention of Uie company to
restore the old Belt Line and to run cars
by the former schedule, thereby making
continuous trips and avoiding the transfer
of passengers, as at present In order to
do this, additional horses will be required,
and In order to accommodate them the
sheds proposed will be required

by himseir and Chief Marshal McIIugh.
A proposed amendment to the police
regulations, requiring all street cars to
stop on the near side at intersecting
streets, will be taken up by the board of
Commissioners to-morrow for considera
tion. The greater part of two afternoons, yes
terday and the day before, have been oc
cupied by the Commissioners in revising
the police regulations, preparatory to
having them printed for distribution. At

in the labor. The erfort Is to have the

Mr. W. Kesley Schoepf, late vice presi
dent of the Eckinston and Soldiers' Home
ltnVroad Company, has been constructively
at the workhouse for the past month break-
iuj? rock, and a day or two ago was re- '
leased on five days' "good time,' because
he had behaved himself well during the '
As a nmlter of fact, Mr Schoepf has
been very spryly engineering Uie con- i
struction of the new trolley road from '
hero to Baltimore j
The report from the Washington Asjium, '
as the workhouse H called, made on
Monday shows the supposed re&ult of '
Mr Schoepf s conviction for obstructing '
the streets secured by Assistant Commis
sioners Attorney Tugh in the latter part
of July '
The case is well remembered Mr.
Schoepf, as the reprcsentaUve of Uie Eck
inglon and Soldiers' Home Kaiiroad, was
constructively put under arrest and regis
tered ut the First precinct station as locked
up charged with obstructing Uie streets
Ofcourse.Mr Schoepf was never at tually '
under arrest nor in durance He was tried
in the police court, and, with die least
possible personal inconvenience, was de-
clared guilty, aud it was decreed that he
pay $50 fine or go down for thirty dajs
lie did neither one A poor man in the
sume condition would probably have gone
down He undoubtedly must have paid
his fine or gone to the rock pile He could
not nrford to do what Mr Schoepf, with
a wealthy corporation behind him. did
Mr bchoepf had his attorney instructed
to apply for that writ, once dearest to the
heart of the commoner , but now the pei l il
di feiL-e of the wealthy, and po werful a writ
of habeas corpus.
The ordinary man rarely gets thebtnefit
or it, uiileso he has back of him a labor
organization, as tho Railway Union was
behind Eugene Debs.
When Judge Cole decided that Mr
Schoepf was not entitled to thk defeiie,
uie corporations attorney nau another
legal barrier between .Mr Schoepf and the
workhouse, where another man would have
I landed long before if he did not promptly
pay his fine.
He a"ked for an appeal to the court of ap
peals, and it was granted under S500bond
This bond, which Mr Schoepf gave In a
Jiffj ,doe- not mean, of course, that heAi!l
pay $j00 if he should finally be beaten , but
that he will be present when the eae is
called next month. j
The cost of "standing off" the Comnus- j
slouers till the case i decided bj the court
ofappt .lis will be ver light forMr Schoepf. j
He pays his attorney by the ear
Finally he may have to pay Uie $50 fine.
j But his object will have been accomplished;
the question whether tbe trolley poles must
go will have been postponed and the
rights of the people trifled with fur nearly
six months more, and a great many things
can happen in that tune.
It may be that among the happenings
something can be found which will post
pone the taking down of the poles another
MAY WORK IT AGAIN.
It may be that Mr Schoepf will then pay
his fine, be arrested again, again go to the
workhouse constructively and be cred
ited with five days "good Unie" for ex
emplary behavior while constructively a
prisoner working out his fine on the Tock
pile, get a writ of hab as corpus and through
It secure another delay or six months and
the retention of the trolley poles in their po
sitions of danger to the people and piofit
to the railroad company.
The Iron foot of the millionaire trolley
syndicate will remain firmly planted In
the city till the enormous resources back of
it have been able to wear out the people's
champions, to overcome or elude opposi
tion, aud then on the heels of some session
of Congress slip through a clause in some
bill which will give them the all-protecting
The magnates can then snap their fin
gers at the people and build trolley roads
right and left. One trolley line once firmly
established will be an argument for an
oUier till the net-work is as complete in
Washington as m other cities.
The streets of the Capital City are too
broad aud inviting to let Uieni escape with
out a treniendousstniggle, AndMr. Crosby
S. Noyes and Mr. Samuel H. Kauffniann,
with their large holdiugsinUieconipany that
owns the trolley line here, apparently will
be ready to lend them Uie influence of the
Washington Star, when it will do the most
Meantime Mr. Schoepf has been to the
workhouse, served his time and got five
days off. That is what Uie records said
at any rate.
TROLLEY HANGS OVER US.
It may be that his attorney will take ad
vantage of it to secure a rehearing or an
appeal or something else when he is driven
to the last resort. Great victories have
hung on smaller mistakes. The trolley
may be fastened upon the city through
The Commissioners, who declare that
they have given no orders to slaeken the
prosecution of the fight for the city's
rights in the removal of the trolley poles,
nevertheless, when asked why other easts
arc not made, leply that they have not had
time again to take up the subject.
The poles are all the while still on duty.
They are not even constructively removed.
It may happen that the company will find
a means to have them removed In a
purely constructive sense, even as Mr.
Schoepf was in the workhouse, and go on
using them just the same.
When this is" done the Commissioners may
await a more convenient moment, or may
act with the greatest vigor and aggressive
ness; It will be all one to the trolley people.
The poles will be here to stay and bring
property in fires and in the many other
ways in which they menace the public.
