Garbage Removed
Promptly Even if
Snoiv Work Is Slow
While the District street clean
ing department got off to a late
start on concerted snow removal
work, it developed today that the
same department made a\ better
showing in the garbage collec
tion service.
Since the heavy snowfall early
Saturday morning the city has
succeeded in gathering up 85 per
cent of the normal amount of gar
bage. The ash carts also have
been kept going as rapidly as pos
sible In view of the condition of
the streets.
The garbage collections have
been as follows: Friday, 138 tons
collected; Saturday, 191 tons; Sun
day, 202 tons; Monday, 221 tons.
Reports from New York state
that no garbage has been collected
there for three days.
Supreme Court Holds Its Tentative
Appraisements Not Subject
to Review.
Tentative valuations of railroads as
made by th-» Interstate Commerce
Commission are not subject to review
by the courts prior to being made
final, the Supreme Court declared yes
terday in an opinion delivered by Jus
tice Slcßej nolds in a case brought by
the Delaware and Hudson Co.
The railro-.d sought modification of
the tentative valuation placed upon
its property by the commission. The
court explained that the "tentative
valuation” was no more than an ex
parte appraisement without probative
effect, and that the carrier was au
thorized to make a protest to the
commission before the valuation be
came final.
The railroad had made such pro
tests and was awaiting action there,
said Justice Mcßeynolds, adding that
no showing had been made to prove
that the commission had wilfully dis
regarded the law, failed to proceed In
an orderly manner, or would nflt pass
upon all the matters set forth in the
Senate and House District Com
mittees to Hold Joint Session
Tomorrow Morning.
A general plan of legislation for
the District of Columbia at the pres
ent session of Congress will be map
ped out at a joint session of the
Senate and House District committees
tomorrow morning.
Special joint subcommittees on
three important measures will be ap
pointed, it is expected. These bills
are the proposed rent act, the bill
proposing a merger of the street rail
ways and the bill for a five-year
school building program. A joint
subcommittee already has been ap
pointed to handle the so-called Dis
trict pubtic welfare bill. That sub
committee is to meet Thursday morn
It is hoped the Joint committee
i meeting tomorrow will result in co-
I operation on the part of both houses
