Utilities Commission Hears
Plea for New Trans
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
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
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
Those signing the petition on behalf
of the employes and the divisions
which they represent are;

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
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

Partial payment subscribers to the
liberty loan were urged by Secretary
MeAdoo to complete their arrange

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

them $1,300 through the sale of eggs
the past year, besides supplying their
own wants. ?
