Permitting passengers to ride upon the running-boards of open cars and prohibiting commuters from standing between the seats was advocated by William McK. Clayton, representing the Federation of Citizens' Associa tions st a hearing ?before tho Public Utilities Commission yesterday. Attorney Clayton aroused the vig orous opposition of the traction mag nates by seme of the new rules which he advocated, and President George E. Hamilton, of the Capital Trac tion Company, branded a number as wholly Impractical. ? fciinf- Props ?ed. Summarised, tbe changes which he proposed were: Permitting passengers with trans fers to leave cars and take the car ahead in cases of blockade. The making* of reports by ths rail way employes when cars are de tained five minutes. Enforcement of the rule which prohibits passengers standing be tween the guard rail directly behind conductors and mutormen. Prohibiting the company from changing the signs marking the destination of a street car after the trip had actually begun to the point of destination Compelling the company to fur nish the names of witnesses to ac cidents as well as the names of those Injured. To the latter proposal President Hamilton voiced a firm protest. He claimed It would open the way to ambulance "runners" and shyster lawyers. ATTORNEY GENERAL VINDICATES VROOMAN Declare?
