PASSES HERE Utilities Commission Hears Plea for New Trans fer Points. Free Intercompany transfers, at seven of the intersections of the lines of the Capital Traction Company and the Washington Railway and Elec tric Company were ordered yesterday by the Public Utilities Commission. The points at which the transfers will be issued and accepted by the companies are: Seventh and Florida avenue northwest; Florida avenue and Eckington place northeast; Eighth and H streets northeast; Eighth and D streets northeast; Eighth and C streets northeast; Eighth and East Capitol streets; North Capitol street and Massachusetts avenue. Small Loac to Companies. ^ The proposed plan is framed with the special intention of relieving the situation in regard to navy yard em ployes. The transfer points fixed in the northeast section are expected to enable the employes of the yard to reach the government housing pro jects, which are being constructed for them, without the payment of an in creased fare. It was brought out at the hearing that the granting of transfers at these points would be the result of only a small loss to the companies. Edward A. Roberts, assistant to John A. Beeler. traffic expert, testified be fore the commission that the annual loss to each company would be about 13,000, with an additional loss to the Washington Railway and Electric Company of about >800 due to the Brightwood commutation tickets. The cause of universal transfers re ceived a "boost" at the conclusion of the hearing when Commissioner Louis Brown low announced that he favored the granting of Intercom pany transfers at all of the twenty nine intersections of the lines. A petition asking for the granting of further intercompany transfers was presented to the commission by James L. Wilmeth, acting for the em ployes of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The petition asks for the transfers at Fourteenth street and Pennsylvania avenue. Twelfth street and Pennsylvania avenue. Four teenth and H streets, and Seventh and G streets. In the petition, which is signed by representatives of the various organi sations of the bureau, it is pointed out that the granting of transfers be tween the companies at the points suggested would tend to relieve the traffic congestion at these points. It is also claimed that it would enable the 8.000 employes of the bureau to reach their work on time, thereby adding to the efficiency of the organi zation. Short Trip ( ijunt. At present there is in effect a sys tem of 2-cent transfers from Four teenth street and Pennsylvania ave nue. The petition holds that such a charge is unjust for such a short trip as the one to the bureau. The commission agreed to hear fur ther discussion of this matter. It Is probable that a further hearing will be allowed at the same lime as the companies are to be heard on the transfer points which have been se lected. Those signing the petition on behalf of the employes and the divisions which they represent are; Plate printers. Daniel Hassett: ma Vhlnists. Edward R. Williams; engi *ers. James Williams; Federal I^abor Vnion. Nora James; engravers. Will iam Hass: transferers. Ben Golds worthy; plate cleaners. William Brown; firemen and oilers. Daniel O'Leary; carpenters. John T. Wells; painters. O. Pillow: steamfitters. Pres ton Shannon; plumbers, William Sells; pressmen. F. Gelsler. In case the companies should have ?ome objection to the points estab lished for the issuance of transfers, the commission set next Thursday for another hearing FOOD LICENSE SYSTEM EXTENDED TO STORAGE Extension of the Federal Food Ad ministration's licensing svstem over manufacturers, dealers snd storers of 'oods not touched by license up to 'his time was announced in a proc lamation by the President yesterday.

JEWELRY STOLEN AS POLICE STEER CROWDS Burglars Take Advantage of Op portune Peace Demonstration. While Mrs. Harry R. Bunnlll. of apartment 5 on the first floor of 1430 Rhode Island avenue northwest, sat at the bedside of her invalid husband, burglars last night entered the apartment through a side win dow and committed one of the most I daring and well-timed burglaries ever committed in this city. Over $1,000 worth of Jewelry was taken from a dresser in Mrs. Bunniirs, bedroom without the burglar or burglars making a sound that would betray their presence. The theft occurred about 8:30 when every available policeman was detailed to keep order on Pennsyl vania tvtnue where nearly 210.000 people paraded. Mrs. Bunnlll was unaware she had been robbed until she went into her bedroom and discovered the dresser drawers in disorder. One look waa sufficient and she immediately noti fied the police. An inventory of the remaining contents of the dress er revealed that several large dia monds set in platinum and several valuable watches, brooches and other articles of Jewelry were miss ing. Detective Vermillion has been assigned to the case. The police are confident the rob bery was committed or directed by some one familiar with the premises. Railroad Men Subscribe 100%. Final returns from all the United States railroad regional directors show that every one of them, with the exception of Mr. Maher, of th?s Pocahontas Region, reports a 100 [)er cent subscription to the Fourth IJberty Loan In the general offices In his respective region. M'ADOO URGES BOND BUYERS TO 'CARRY ON' Duty of Each Subscriber to Com plete Contract. Partial payment subscribers to the liberty loan were urged by Secretary MeAdoo to complete their arrange ment in a statement issued yester day. Many employers throughout the country have rendered most patriotic assistance in the distribution of lib erty loan bonds to their employes and have assisted them in the purchase of these bonds by arranging that payments may be made in install ments covering a period of time longer than that which could be granted by the Treasury Department. It is the duty of the aubscribers to bonds on these partial payment plans to complete the contract into which they have entered. If they do not do so both they and the government suf fer. as the bonds for which they have contracted and for which they do not pay in full must usually be sold in the open market. It la, of course, recognised that in case of necesaity caused by sickness or other unavoidable circumstances cancella tions of subscriptions or sales of bonds are entirely warranted. In cases where employes have made ar rangements to purchase the bonds on installment plans and then sever their connection with the employer with whom they have made subscrip tions, arrangements should be made for the completion of the subscrip tion or for having the subscription taken over by the new employer or by a bank in the community where the subscriber resides, thus avoiding the necessity for sale of the bonds covered by the subscription. Mr. and Mrs. S. N. Simmons, of Ap pleton. Me., say that their flock of 223 Rhode Island Reds has netted them $1,300 through the sale of eggs the past year, besides supplying their own wants. ? u? at/xu* COAL PRICES ADVANCE TO COVER WAGE RAISE Fuel Administration Announces In crease Averaging 74c Ton.
