Inter-company transfers are to be
issued at these points as soon as
the existing transfers can be con
fiscated and a new series printed.

In a stormy session of the Public
T^tilltiee Commission, officials of the
Washington Railway and Electric
Company fought the granting of in
tercompany transfers. The fight
hinged on the paragraph in the re
cent order of the commission grant
ing the increase in fare, which stat
ed that the Increase was granted on
condition that the companies should
interpose no legal objection to an
order requiring the issuance of trans
fers between the lines of the com
panies at points of intersection.

Electric Company, and George Ham
ilton, president of the Capital Trac
tion Company, declared that no such
statements or intimations had been
made by officials of the company.
He stated that free transfers would
entail serious loss to the companies.
Representatives of various citi
zens' associations presented the
views of the citizens in the matter.
They declared that their associa
tions had endorsed the recent in
crease only on condition that uni
versal transfers be granted.
Bill Price, president of the Con

public would not stand for any

He declared that the commission
should go ahead and inaugurate free

Expert Says Gain Possible.
Ed^rd A. Roberts, traffic expert,
associated with Mr. Beeler, was cross
examined by attorneys of the rail
roads. He reiterated statements that
the companies would not lose to any
great extent by the adoption of free
inter-company transfers. He main

increase their revenues slightly by
such aotion, *
After three hours the hearing took
a recess. When the session was re

lines agreed to grant free transfers at
the points mentioned above.
They further agreed that the whole |

of John A. Beeler, traffic expert, and j
that he, working in co-operation with

use VapoRub at on^e. Melt a little
in a spoon and inhale the vapors
arising, or VapoRub can be used in
a regular benzoin steam kettle, such
an most druggists carry in stock.
If this is not available, a very good
substitute to use is an ordinary tea
kettle. Fill half-full of boiling
water?put in half a teaspoon of
VapoRub from time to time?keep

inhale the steam arising.

Food Shortage Causing
Misery, Minister Here
Four of the ?even million inhabi
tant* of Belgium are destitute today
and subsist entirely on what they re
ceive when each individual arrives at
his goal in the "soup line." accord
ing to a statement by E. de Cartler
de Marchienne. the Belgian Minister
He made public a statement thank
ing President Wilson for delegating
Herbert Hoover,. food administrator,
to take charge of all relief work
abroad, and said:
"That Mr. Hoover and his associates
in the commission for relief in Bel
gium and In the Food Administration
are to have charge of this enlarged
interest of the American people in
Belgium will give a feeling of abso
lute confidence to the whole of our
people, and this evidence of Ameri
ca's continued solicitude will be an
encouragement and stimulation to my
people second only to their actual lib
eration from German oppression.'
Inasmuch as it will be some time
before Belgium can expect to claim
reparation from Germany, according
to the Minister, it can easily be seen
the misery in which the Belgian peo
ple will find themselves unless prompt
relief measures are undertaken.
Need Haw Materials.
Raw material must be found to
start factories, industries must
again be put under way, railroads
and canals reconstructed, houses re
built. seed and agricultural imple
ments furnished before the country
may look for a real livelihood
through its own efforts. The French
and English governments, however,
have also promised their co-opera
tion in reconstruction work. The
minister concludes his statement
with this reference to the enemy:
"They destroyed our railways, our
mines and our canals. Never before
has a country' been reduced to
such a plight as ours today and
never has a country had such
friends. We have won the war.
We must now bend every effort to
restore our country and prepare it
for its glorious future."
