T. Company for operation of the city-owned Frankford Klevatcd w .started today by Transit Director Twining and City Solicitor Smyth, en instructions from Mayer Moere. Better terras wcre insisted upon by these officials, as Council's Special Transit Commission met te hammer out n new agreement. The first session was rjeld.in the office of Itlcherd cg loin. president of Council. The- commission was created last Tutsday when Themas 13. Mitten, president of the P. It. T., offered te dpcrate the clty'-builtllnc In conjunction with the Market street subwayclevatcd. -Object te Mitten's Tlan Under the new Mitten plan the city weujd receive the diffcrence between the operating receipts and the operating xpenscj of the Frankford "1 and would pay a proportionate rental for the uee of the Market street subway front ,cent,freet te the Fifteenth street station. Mayer Moero is lighting for mere liberal .terms and li piepnring for municipal' operation of the "L." The' conferees representing the city were Mr. Twining, Mr. Smyth. Control -ler.Iadley and Mr! Weglein. The com pany was represented by K. A. llicli urdwn. vice president of the I. K. T., In charge of operation ; VT. C. Dunb.ir. vice president 'in charge of finance, and vColemen .7. Joyce, counsel for the com cem I'gny. The es&ien began at 11:10 o'clock thind locked doers. Mr, Smyth brought Assistant' City Solicitor Megec with tlm. The only ether person present who was net a nipmber of the commission was Frank W. Short, executive clcik f Cduncil. Kates Are Disciisted In preparation for the conference Mr. Weglein last night read ninety-five typewritten pages covering the ftute merits and discussions at the transit meeting last Tuesday Six tickets for a nuartcr may be the ' Tain of far- rhAnrpri en tbe Frankford ' Ievated line If the city operates the municipally constructed read. In his message te Ceuuell yesterday accompanying the ordinance authoriz ing the creation of a Bureau of Opera tions te run the line, Mayer Moere sug gested that if the city operated the ele vated "a return te the rates of fare prevailing In 1007 might be brought bout." Six Bides for Quarter? TWiat means the old six rfaii for a quarter which prevailed up te 1H0D. The suggestion that the city might underbid the Philadelphia Ilapid Tran sit Company en the matter of fares If it operated the Frankford read was easily the outstanding featurp of the transit situation yesterday. The low fare, it was said, would attract riders and f xeUld materially increase the number of 1, passengers carried in addition te boost- ' tng the receipts. In Council yesterday Mr. weglein charged that the proposed aereement forwarded te Council last month by the Maver would have "stung the car riders of Philadelphia te the extpnt of J53,00O.0OO,M because of a contemplated increase In ratea of fare from four tickets for a quarter te a straight "" aeTen-cent basis.

The Allied Repara tions Commission, meeting today te consider the German notice of Inability te pay the next two installments In full and requesting extension of time, vir tually agreed that the Commission itself should take definlte notion en the request Instead of referring the question te the allied governments. The note was coldly received by the French press. It was announced that the Commis sion would meet again this afternoon te discuss the matttr further. Dr. Mayer, German Ambassador, de livered te Premier Brland today n ceny of the German "reparations note. The German Embassy announced that Dr. Mayer's visit was liralfed te this errand nnd that there was no truth in the re port that he had presented a formal de mand for delay In the payments ec for n moratorium. The two payments, 000,000,000 geld marks each, are due January 15 and February 15 of next year. The note declared that, even with the time extension, payment in full depended upon the success of efforts te ebtnin a fereien lean. Custcms re ceipts nnd revenues from ether sources which Germany intended te use in making the payments had netted only from 150,000,000 te 200,000,000 geld marks, the uote continued. Nole Lacldng in Details Although the note cannot be de scribed as curt, it is regarded in rcn rcn nratiens circles as remarkable for its lack of details or expression of regret ever its failure te live up te the agree ment. Fer these and ether reasons, the note has made an unfavorable im pression in French circles. "Will the Ruhr be occupied this time?" "Germany cannot pay, but her industry tiavs SO Per cent divi dends." These arc some of the captions in the morning newspapers straws that show whieli way the wind of opinion blows. Says the Figare: "Germany doesn't want te pay any thing, und if her debts were remitted she would seen be asking for indemni ties." Le Journal asscits German Industrial magnates have 7.000.000.000 geld marks deposited In foreign banks, but that they demanded such outrageous tonus in return for nld te the Govern ment that Chancellor Wirh wns obliged te refuse, lacking the courage or strength te require of them mere dis interested aid. Whether the reparation commission's action will take the form of another note te Germany or the Immediate (riinsniisien te the allied Powers of a statement of the facts, together with implied recommendations, bus net been determined, but In reparation circles It is believed the latter course will be fol lowed. Majority opinion in the commission is said te favor submission te the Allien of an outline of the only three methods considered possible by which Germany could meet the forthcoming payments. The first method, it is peintrd out, would be for Germany te use the money held by German nationals nbrerid. amounting te about seven billion geld murks. Te n request of this kind Ger many could reply that sue wns unable te force her nationals te give up (his money, and the Allied would have no re course, i The second method would be the use of the geld reserve in the Gernuin Reichsbank of mete thnu one billion geld marks. Reparation officials say that while this reserve covers only 1 per cent of the outstanding paper and therefere Is valueless as u guaranty, the German people nevertheless derive con fidence from it. nud if the entire re serve were vvipd out financial chaos with unlimited potentialities for harm might fellow. Failed te Balance Budget The third method Indicated would be for Germany te buy foreign exchange with her paper marks, which method, in the view et the experts, would be even mere disastrous than the second method suggested. the experts advocate the Inclusion of. these three methods in 11 nole te the Allies, with the statement that thee ere the only wnjs open te Germany for pnyment et the next two installments i and that if, In the opinion of the Allies, failure te resort te ene of them would constitute u default, then Germnnv should he formally declared in default of her payments.
