BILL WITH CITIZENS
Southeast Association Al
leges Inconsistency at
1 Inconsistency In the treatment of cltl
ins at the District building was
charred ag-atnat the officials by mem
bers of the Southeast Washington Glu
tens' Association at the monthly' meet
ing last night The attitude of officials
of the District was likened to a weather
vane. In that It could never be deter
mined from one day to another what It
was going to be.
H. C. Kmrlch cited an Instance where
he sold It had cost one of his employe
fU to obtain a permit to make certain
repairs to his property, while Mr. Em
rich said he had obtained a similar per
mit for nothing. Other members of the
association told of Instances where they
-asserted the District officials had
changed their rulings and decisions for
no apparent reason.
The association lined up strongly In
favor of an adequate pension and relief
fund for firemen and policemen and a
resolution pledging support to the pen
sion movement was passed unani
mously. On recommendation of Allan Davis
the association paused a resolution that
it was the "sense of tho association to
. tako no adverse action to tho Commis
sioners' plan for Increase In water
rates, but that the Commissioners
should endeavor to increase the ca
pacity of the water system according to
the half-and-half principle of tho or
ganic act as soon as tho revenues of the
District will permit."
Announcement was made that the
work on the new public park, extending
from Giesboro Point to the Anacostla
river, was progressing rapidly, and that
when completed It would be one of tho
finest parks In tho District.
Mr. Emrlch was appointed chairman
of a special committee to consult with
engineers and get an estimate on the
amount of money needed to build a
cross-town lino from southeast to south
west Details of the Diana which the
association has in view were printed ex
clusively In The Times following the
previous meeting of the organization.
Both the Capital Traction and tho
Washington Railway and Electric Com
pany have informed the association that
it Is not practicable for them to build
such a line. A. O. Herrmann, president
of the association, Immediately started
a movement among the members with a
view to forming a now company to
build the line.
Mr. Herrmann says there will be no
trouble In Interesting outside capital in
such a project, but he believes the busi
ness men of southeast Washington will
subscribe for all the stock.
Charles W. Darr Asks Cali
fornia Senator to Meet
Charles W. Darr. chairman of iht.
Citizens' Conference on Universal
Transfers, today sent a letter to Sen
ator John D. Works of California, In
viting him to meet with the executive
commltteo of tho conference to discuss
the citizens' proposed transfer bill.
Mr. Darr Is much pleased by the Sen
ator's expressed Interest In the uni
versal transfer situation, and his state
ment that he desires to confer with the
citizens of Washington in reference to
tho form of a bill to present to Con
gress. "The only thing in which tho Senator
Is mistaken," said Mr. Darr, "is in his
thinking that the citizens are not in
agreement over the form of a transfer
bill. If the citizens of Washington ever
wore a unit over any one public meas
ure, they are together In their support
of the transfer bill as drawn by their
conference committee. Only ono Indi
vidual, not representing, according to
nis own statement, any organization or
Interest, has opposed the form of tho
"We havo not yot been Informed by
the District Commissioners whether they
will recommend the passago of this bill
or their amendment of the Senator's bWl.
Both were compared at the hearing bo
fore tho Commissioners on Monday. In
cur opinion there nre vital differences
between the two bills, but the only dif
ference of opinion over tho form of n
bill Is between tho committee and the
Commissioners, if even there, for wo
havo not been Informed ns yot about
their final decision.''
It Is expected that the Commissioners
will announce this week the result of
their comparison of the two bills.
