Question as to District Electric
Railway Commission.
Provision of Measure Seems to Terminate
Career of Board.
Section Forbids Use of Public Money
for Councils Not Authorized
by Congress.
Did the provision of section !l of the i
sundry civil bill, making appropriation
for the sundry civil expense? of the government
for the fiscal year ending June
So, 1filf>, which was approved March 4,
legally put the District electric
railway commission out of business?
That is a question that seems pertinent
and will bear close consideration before
answering, according to an official of
re of the local street railway lines.
The section referred to provides: "That
hereafter no part of the public moneys
or of any appropriation heretofore or
hereafter made by Congress shall be
used for the payment of compensation or
expenses of any commission, council,
board or other similar body or any members
thereof, or for expenses in connection
with any work or the results of
any work or action of any commission,
council, beard or other similar body,
unless the creation of the same shall be
or shall ha\e been authorized by law;
nor shall there be employed by detail,
hereafter or. heretofore made or otherv.
ise. persona! services from any executive
department or other government establishment
in connection with any such
commission, council, board or other similar
First Report on Subject.
In its first report upon the subject, after
the enactment of the law of May 2*1, 1f*?8t
giving the interstate commerce commission
supervision and control over the
District electric railways, the interstate
commerce commission advised Congress
of its action in creating the District electric
railway commission. It stated as
follows: "To the end that this commission
might fulfill the duty thus imposed
(by the ad of May 23, 1908>. and in a
desire to learn the needs of the District
and be advised as to the best manner in
which the requirements of the law might
be met. the interstate commerce commission
tailed to its aid three residents of
this District. Brig. Gen. John M. Wilson.
U. S. A . retired, formerly chief of the
Corps of Engineers: Hon. Henry L,. West,
Commission* r of the District of Columbia,
and Mr. Thomas W. Smith, a business
man of long residence and high standing.
to act as a District electric railway
commission. These gentlemen were appointed
agents and examiners under an
order dated July 1. 11108, a copy of which
is hereto appended, and for convenience
were designated 'District electric railway
commissioners." "
The report then proceeds to state that
suitable quarters were secured for them
and an executive officer and secretary employed
to assist them in their labors; that
they entered at once upon their duties and
that the railway companies refused to
recognize them. The report also calls attention
to the many duties imposed upon
the interstate commerce commission by
the enforcement of the act to regulate
commerce and other acts, and expresses
the belief that it was in the contemplation
of Congress that the interstate commerce
commission should secure such assistance
as was needed to the proper performance
of the duties imposed by the act

Congress Passes Bill.
This report, it is said, bore date of January
1M. I'.WKl. With this report and its explanations
before it Congress in a little
less than two months afterward passed the
section of the bill above quoted forbidding
the use of public moneys to pay for commissions
not authorized by it.
"These are the facts," said the railway
official. "The question is: "What is the
status of the District electric railway
commission under the law?" "
The section has never been repealed by
Congress, it i? said. Commissioner Dane
of the interstate commerce commission,
who is chairman of the branch of the
commission that deals wtih street railway
affairs in the District, is abroad.
The other members of the commission
were engaged in a hearing today. The
commission heretofore has taken the
position, according to the statements of
some of its members, that the interstate
commerce commission has not delegated
its authority to the District commission,
and that it makes all ths orders an<l
regulations affecting the street railways.
But it is contended by the railway people
the section forbidding the use of
public monevs to pay salaries or exp.-r.sf-s
<ifi? commissions not authorized by
Congress makes no reference whatever
to the question of delegating authority.
It is directed, it is said, against the commis.-ion
itself.*no matter what its duties.
The District electric railway commissioners.
it is understood, feel that the
, question is not one for them to determine.
It is up to the interstate commission.
ami the question is "What is the
legal siaius of the District electric railway
Died After Refusing to Talk From
the Time Mortgage on His
Farm Was Foreclosed.
SOMERVILL.E. N. J., July 13.-When
Siias Hoffman died recently in Bedminater
township he had spent nearly onehalf
of his sixty-seven years in silence,
though I.is vocal organs were not affected,
ar>l in bed, though his health was
excellent until shortly befowe his death.
For years he had been known as the
holder of the world's record for treasuring
up a "grouch." Gagsipers speculated
on whether or not Hoffman would
gel up. or speak again, or die first. He
died without saying a word, his silence
^ having been maintained from the day,
thirty-one years ago, upon which a mortgage
was foreclosed on his farm.
Opinion was divided as to 'the real
cause of Hoffman's withdrawal from
human ass?xiation Some declared that
be just hated the world and all its people
and works. Others, and they were
in the majority, held to the opinion that
when the mortgage he had signed came
back to gall him he determined never
to speak again to any one who might
suggest that he sign anything and to stay

after he lost his farm. At one time he
was regarded as being wealthy, as wealth
went in those days and in this place.

All Cabinet Officers Absent From the
City?Revival of the MacVeagh
For a few fleeting moments today the
question of "Who's who" in government
authority was a burning one in Washington.
Apparently no responsible chief was
"on the job." Not that it made any
particular difference, however, since "the
boys" were running the government about
as usual in the absence of the heads.
The situation was brought about by the
sudden disappearance of Postmaster
General Hitchcock, who. without so much
as saying "by your leave." packed his
grip last night and departed for New
York, whence he sailed for Europe this
All Cabinet Members Absent.
This left no cabinet officer on guard.
Secretary Knox is spending the summer
at his home in Pennsylvania. SecretaryDickinson
is on his way to the Philip
pines. Secretary Meyer is at his summer
home in Canada. Secretary MacVeagh
is settled down for the summer
at Dublin. N". H. Secretary BalMnger is
inspecting Indian reservations. Secretary
VViison is inspecting forests in the Rocky
mountains. Attorney General Wickersham
and Secretary Xagei are on the way to
So it fell to Assistant Secretary Hilles
of the Treasury Department to hold down
the government lid, which he accordingly
proceeded to do. Departments are expected
to open and close as usual and the
pay roil will come around on schedule
Revival of Resignation Rumor.
There was renewal today of the report
that Secretary MacVeagh will retire front
the cabinet. The Secretary's friendsTiere
nut no credence in the rumor. They say
that when he left Washington he had no
such intention. He likes his vork and the
President likes him.
It is thought that the report was started
by some of the "stand-pat" politicians in
the party who profess to be fearful lest
Mr. MacVeagh is not a dyed-in-the-wool
republican. They have been hammering
away at him on that line for some time.
Some of the stand-pat leaders in the Senate
have strongly intimated their desire
to oust him.
Secretary MacVeagh's friends say that
he is as good a republican as any man in
the party and is intensely loyal to President
Taft and the republican administration.
They insist that he will support the
President heartily and will take the stump
for him and for the party whenever necessary.
Roy Knabenshne, for Wrights, Suggests
Date for New YorkWashington
It is regarded as probable that the
TOight-Curtlss aeroplane race from New
York to Washington will be arranged for
the end of October, Just after the international
meet, which will be held on Long
Island. 'Roy Knabenshue, who is managing
the exhibition flights for the Wrights,
made that suggestion to Dr. Albert
Zahm of the Washington Aero Club at
Atlantic City last week. The problem so
far has been to get the Wrights into a
race with Curtiss, and since they tentatively
accepted the next matter of importance
is to fix a date.
Knabenshue said that the Wrights expected
to build a racer for the international
meet, and if so it probably would
be a machine good for seventy miles an
hour or more. The mlle-a-minute mark
has been passed, and in the meeting at
Rheims recently the speed contest was
won at a fraction over sixty-eight miles
an hour. Aviators expect that the seventy-mile
mark will be passed during the
coining fall. There is every reason to expect
that this mark will be established at
the International meet.
Wright Machine Slow Flyer.
The Wright machine has never before
figured in a speed contest and has always
been a notably slow flyer, although
the Wrights have said that they could
build a faster machine if they wished.
In the recent meet ax Atlantic City
spectators said that it was only through
generosity or lack of enterprise that Curtiss
failed to take all the prizes. His machine
is faster on the level and could
climb about 50 per cent faster than!
Brookios', who handled the Wright machine
and won the altitude prize at a
height of 6,275 feet.
All the prospects are for a lively contest
when the Wright and Curtiss machines
meet at Long Island. If the
Wrights make good their threat to produce
a seventy-mile machine there will be
some of the most'exciting aerial races the
world has ever seen.
