Europeans Advised by
Former Food Administrator

House Committee.
With starvation menacing Western
En rope, and disintegration of all gov
ernment as a possible result. Con
gress was asked yesterday by Sec
retary of the Treasury Glass to au
^ thorize a special relief loan of $130,
*0.000 for the purchase of food sup
plies for Austria. Poland, Armenia
ind other countries.
The Secretary explained by letter
to the House Ways and Means Com
mittee that the money could be taken

United States Grain Corporation with
out making a drain on the Treasury.

t>y the Treasury and England were
riven the committee by Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury Davis.
The committee will hear Herbert
Hoover next Monday on the same
Davis said that for the loans made
it was intended to take such se
curities as the governments receiv
ing the loan could give. Austria has
Torests, water power and a tobacco
monopoly. Poland has gqpd railroads
ind valuable resources, with no war
"You are asking this loan more
for humanity than for the eco
nomics of the situation." suggested
Representative Garner. "You are
lfraid of the political effect, of the
spread of Bolshevism, if help is not
Admitting this. Davis said the
Treasury was interested also be
cause of the bad effect disintegra
tion of governments in Western
Europe would have on the stabiliza
:lon of finance.
Davis said that small measures
of relief were necessary in Bel
gium. Italy and for the peoples of
Budapest, although not for Hun
gary proper. He thought the relief
loans should run for a period of
ive or ten years. Replying to ques
tions he said the Red Cross could

Consolidation I;
Legislation designed to compel
i merger of the two local street
'ailway companies, if they fail
vithin a set period voluntarily to
ronsolidate, may develop in the
'orm of an amendment to the mer
ger bill proposed by the District
Commissioners, it was indicated
A precedent for such action has

I >ill. which passed the Senate rg
?ently. This bill, which the District

heir brief to Chairman Mapes. of
:he House District Committee, pro
/ides for merging certain groups of
railroads into one company after
?*ven years, unless the companies
hemselves voluntarily b.ing about
t consolidation before that time.
"The commissioners have not asked
Congress to fore? the companies here
:o join forces." Chairman Charles
.V. Kutz. of the Public rtilttles
Commission, pointed out yesterday.
Plaa to Remave Obstacles.
"We have merely, sought to remove
mv legal obstacle which could be
lsed to prevent a voluntary merger
>y the companies." he said.
Commissioner Kutz. when asked if
he provisions of the Cummins rail
?oad bill with regard to compulsory
velding-together of railroads within
i time limit could be applied simi
arly to the local street railway sit
jation, appeared to see no objection
o this plan.
The commissioners are confident

which will bring about the much

Wan. for murder in the first degree.
Tsong Ing Van soon will be tried J
for uttering a worthless check.
United States District Attorney
Laskey announced yesterday. Van j
already has been indicted on that J
charge. Van. it is claimed, attempt
ed to cash a *3,000 check, forged
with the signature of Dr. T. T.,
Wong, director of the mission house,
on January 30. 1919. the day after
the murder, at the Rlggs National
Bank. , J , I
Van. as a witness for the defense
in the Wan trial, admitted on the
stand he had presented the check,
but declared it Was given him by a j
Chinese named T. P. Wang. !
The prosecution throughout the ]
trial contended that "Wang" was a
fictitious person, and that Wan was
the man who gave Van the check
James A. O'Shea. who defended.

British Labor Urges U. S.
To Aid Starving Austria
'? An appeal for contributions from the
'trade unions in America to help the,
?.starving people of Austria Is made in
'a cable received yesterday by Samuel j
Gompers from W. A. Appleton, gen
eral secretary of the General Federa
tion of Trade Unions in Great Britain. ]
A special appeal by the Interna
tional Federation of Trade Unions,
sent to Mr. Gompers from the head- j
quarters in Amsterdam. Holland, says:,
i "The poverty and destitution !n I

Planned to
C. Car Merger
Attached to Commis
Unless Voluntary
5 Effected Soon.
' delving into all the possible benefits
to be derived from a merger, seemed
not to have grasped the full signifi-!
cance of the proposed system of levy
ing based on operating income instead
of gross receipts.
Would Reduce Taxes.
This tax plan, as outlined In the
bill sent to Congress,'would greatly
reduce the taxes borne by the Wash
ington Railway and Electric Compa
ny, whose ten suburban lines have
tended to pull the whole company
from its feet, while the flourishing
Capital Traction Company would be
forced to pay into the proposed
"street railway contingency fund"
nearly all of its revenues above that
representing a 6 per cent return on
This would mean, in other words,
that the present tax burden borne by
the Capital Traction Company would
be more than doubled.
Statisticians of the public utili
ties commission have figured out
that a straight 7-cent fare, as now
desired by the Washington Railway
and Electric Company, would fur
nish the already substantial Capi
tal Traction Company a 13% per
cent return on investment.
? Per Out for W. R. A E.
The fair return of S per cent,
flxed by the commission, would just
be received by the weaker company,
it is estimated.
Under the new plan of taxing
operating incomes, the fair return
of 6 per cent would adjust Itself
equitably between the two systems,
It is believed.
The street privileges enjoyed by
the Capital Traction Company,
which operates only two suburban
lines, would be heavily taxed, while
the burden placed on operating the
I ten suburban lines of the Washim;
jton Railway and Electric Company
'would in great measure be lifted.
