The only alternative to IncreaseO street car fares Is for the courts to allow a price of It cents per. kilowatt hour for electricity, ai?d for Congres? to pernii', the pooling of the earnings of the Washington Railway and Elec tric Coin; any and the Potomac Elec tric Power Compsny. according to the testimony of William P. Ham. presi dent of the Washington Rsllway and Electric Company, before the House District Committee yesterday. Mr. Ham declared that It was un businesslike .nd illogical for the Pub lic Utilities Commission to rule that the earnings of tbe two eompsnle? cannot be pooled, although all the stock is held by Ihe Washington Rail way and Klectrlc Company. He com plained at the ruling of tho commis sion that the price of electricity must be reduced from 10 cents per kilowatt hour to 8 cents. Weald Keep Rale I p. The consumers are now paying st the rate of 10 rents, but the additional 2 cent? over the rate allowed la to be refunded consumers If the courts "hold the 8-rent rale legal. This fund no* ?mount? to ?1.0?4.0??, and Mr. Ham pointed out that it almost l.alance? the present shortage of the Washington Hailway and Klectrlc Compsny. Mr. 11am denied that he wished to put an unfair burden upon the users o. electricity, but raid they should carry their fair share of the traction doubles. He asserted ihat If the Potomac Klectric and Tower Company operated separately It would l?e readily ad mit lei thai a 1<! cent fare was neces sary*? **Wh>." lie asked, "lake Ihe bur den that should Is? on the power con sumers and place It on Ihe car rid ers G ' lit completing his statement on Ihe Merger hill, Mr. Ham declared that the public must realise that public service corporal ions will not invest (heir money except willi the assur ance of a fair return. I>. C. Traetlea Kiara.Ur. Pointing out that no city except New York ha.? such an expensive un derground construction for the street railway?, he said thnl "luxury'? wa> ordered by Congress, and that the car companies sent men abrosd to llnd out how to install such a sys tem. Mr. Ham asserted that all the expense of this tnstsllatlon was born by the companies and none by the guvernment. The revenue from Ihe sale of the current, he said, had grown from ,974.000 In 1906 to $4.500.000 today. ??The Public Utilities Commi.. siQ?v" said Mr. Ham. "by Its policy or fixing rales and making what it calla a fair valuation has denied the Washington Hallway Snd Klec tric Company any advantages from the ownership of the Potomac Elec tric Power Company, which it has bulli up."
