Main 1086 * ONE-MAN CAR RULE DISAPPOINTS HAM Utilities Commission Refuses to Allow W. R. E. to In stall Ten More. The Public Utilities Commission yesterday afternoon denied the peti tion of the Washington Railway and Electric CdTnpany to Install 10 more one-man cars. The decision will not Interfere with the operation of the 70 cars of that type already in use. William F. Ham, president of the company, said this morning that he was disappointed over the decision of tho commission, but preferred not to discuss It in detail until he has seen a copy of the order. At the public hearing on the one man car case last week Mr. Ham de clared street oar travel was declining steadily and that economy of opera tion was imperative. He added that If the company is not encouraged In Its efforts to economize a higher fare might be necessary. lie Fare Boost Indications. There were no Indications today, however, that the company would Immediately seek an Increase In fare because of the inability to install the 10 additional one-man chrs. If these cars had been allowed, the saving to the company In a year would have been 133.000, but an official of the commission pointed out that it would have cost substantially that much to equip the cars, thus offsetting the sav ing for the first year. The formal order of the commission may not go Into details as to the reasons for rejecting the application, but It is understood the commission took the view that one-man cars cannot be moved over the tracks as expeditiously as two-man cars and that vehicular traffic Is delayed longer at corners where one-man ' cars stop. William McK. Clayton, spokesman for the Federation of Citizens’ Asso ciations, led the opposition to the one man cars, assisted by representatives of a number of Individual associations.
