TAXI LINES WANT
RAISE IN FARES
Higher taxi rates for passengers
riding over one mile were asked yes
terday by the Terminal Taxlcab
Company in a petition to the Public
Utilities Commission for a hearing
The commission set December 8 for
the conference
Under the petition the taxi company
would revert to the pro-war schedule
of 40 cents each additional mile trav
eled. instead of 30 cents as is now
the custom. The charge for the first
mile is 50 cents, and this would re
main the same.
The present rates became effective
April 1. 1917. upon a voluntary act of
the company. The petition avers
that since November a year ago they
have granted six raises lo chauffeurs
The rates aske'd for follow: For one
passenger. .*? rents for the first half
mile or fraction thereof, and 10 cents
for each additional quarter mile.
Twenty cents extra per trip for the
r >econd and third passengers; fourth

I have thoucht it very good of
you to write me so much. Of course
I am feeling rather fagged, and the
next four days, which will include
San Francisco, will-be tiresome; but
I am very well. This is a beautiful
hotel in which we are spending Sun
day. with gardens and a long 17
mile drive beside the beach and the
rocks and among the pines and cy
presses. I went on horseback. My
horse was a little beauty, spirited,
swift, sure-footed and enduring. As
is usually the case here they had a
sreat deal of silver on the bridle
and headstall, and much cftvin^ on
the saddle. We had some splt-niNd
gallops. By the way. tell mother
that everywhere out here, from the
Mississippi to the Pacific, I have
seen most of the girls riding astride,
and most of the grown-up women, i
must say I think It very much bet
ter for the horses' backs. I think
by the time that you are an old lady
the side-saddle will almost have
vanished?I am sure I hope so. T
have forgotten whether you like the
side-saddle or not.

Blessed Kermlt:
The last weeks' travel I have
really enjoyed. Last Sunday and to
day (Sunday) and also on Wednes
day at the Grand Canyon I "had long
i rides, and the country has been
, strange and beautiful. I have col
, lected a variety of treasures, which
I shall have to try to divide up
equally among you children. One
treasure, by the way. is a very small
badger, which I named Josiah. and
! | he is now called Josh for short. He
is very cunning and I hold him in
| my arms and pet him. I hope he
will grow up friendly?that is if the
i I poor little fellow lives to grow up
j at all. Dulany is taking excellent
, i care of him and we feed him on
! milk and potatoes.
| I nave enjoyed meeting an old
| classmate of mine at Harvard. He
? i was heavyweight boxing champion
when I was in college.
I was much interested in your see
ing the wild deer. That was quite
remarkable. Today by the way. as I
rode along the bc^ch I saw seals,
cormorants, gulls and ducks, all as
| tonishingly tame.

cunning, who lives in a small box.
We took him out and gave him a
run in the sand today. Se far he
seems as friendly as possible. When

Dearest Quenty-Quee:
I loved your letter. T am very
homesick for mother and for you
children but I have enjoyed this
week's travel. I have been among
the orange groves where the tree>
have oranges growing thick upon
them and there are more flowers
than you have ever seen. I have
a gold top which I shall give you
if mother thinks you can take care
of it. Perhaps I shall give you a sil
ver bell instead. Whenever I see a
little boy being brought up by his
father or mother to look at the pro
cession as we pass by I think of you
and Archie and feel very homesick.
Sometimes little boys ride in the
procession on their ponies. Just lik^
