with squaw, but can get a oung girl
from Hampton or Carlisle.
"This has become an almost dally oc
currence, and only last week I received
a telegram from Dakota telling me that
an Indian whom wc revered has fol
lowed this growing custom and through
the Inlluence of a wretched lawyer Is

New Schedule Seems to Have
Produced, Desired Diminu
tion in Crowding.
Additional street car service on the
Mt. Pleasant and six other lines, w'hlch
began Monday Is believed to be result
ing in the diminution of crowding, al
though sufficient time has not elapsed
nor observations carefully enough made
for final, authoritatlvo pronouncement.
"Increasing the number of cars on
the Mt. Pleasant line has diminished
the speed of cars," ad Secretary John
Marble of the Interstate Commerce
Confmlsslon, who also Is secretary of
the District Electric Commission, "but
more seats arc provided for passengers.
"So far as I have observed since Mon
day, men and women who at& willing
to wait one, two or three minutes during
the morning and evening rush hours
may obtain scats. Of course if cither
a man or woman insists on getting on
an already crowded car. no scat can
be found, and no human ingenuity can
find one, for him or her.
"Motormen ought to be trained to go
faster und not to stop when their cars
are full. Of course discretion must be
exercised in this and It must not be
done when another car Is not close
behind. Else women will be kept stand
ing out of doors too long.
"Wtlb the number of cars consider
ably increased on the ML Pleasant and
other lines, diminution In speed is in
evitable unless motormen go ahead
when their cars arc full."
It is an admitted fact that the public.
as well as motormen. must be trained
to observing full cars whiz by men and
women waiting for a car. Such per
sons now almost always exhibit some
impatience In such situation even if
they can -see another car coming a
block away. Persons In & hurry often
prerer to stand in a crowded car than
bit In the next car.
The District Commission held a so
cial meeting' last evening and worked
on Its new rules and regulations for
operation and equipment. The subject
of ventilation was specially considered.
