Ham, president of i he Washington Railway ft Electric Co., in ihe stand as a witness for the Fed eratlon of Citizens’ Associations. Wtl -1 Ham McK. Clayton, counsel for the ! federation, began a searching probe : today ar. the car fare hearing before the Public Utilities Commission into the relationship existing between the Washington Railway ft Electric Co. and the Potomac Electric Power Co., of which Mr. Ham is also president. Mr. Clayton developed rhe fact 'her the railway company manufactures i power at rhe power company’s Bennings plant under a contractual agreement with rhe power company and resells what it does not use itself to other I companies operating outside of rhe Disrrict. When Mr. Clayton sought to hare Mr. ■ Ham state whether or not the railway ’ company made a, profit on mese sales of power to other companies, not owned or controlled by 'he Washington Rail •vav ft Electric Co., objection was made j by s. R. Bowen, counsel for the railway i company, on the'ground that it. had nothing to do with car fares in the District. Objection Sustained. ”Ts 'he railway company does make I a profit on these sales, I want to follow j it up and see what becomes of it,” de clared Mr. Clayton. *T think it does ha"e a hearing on the rate case here.” The commission Titled, however, that Mr. Ham need not ans Fer rhe ques tions. since it related to sales outside' ' the District. j Vice Chairman H H. Hartman asked ! Mr, Ham a series of questions to find i out whether in his opinion economies would result from rerouting Connecti cut avenue cars of the Capital Traction Co. over the Mount. Pleasant line of ■ ! the Washington Railway and Electric Co. and the Wisconsin avenue cars of the latter company over the Capital Traction Co.’s Pennsylvania avenue * lines. Mr. Ham said the first proposal would probably have poor results.” and it. would rake a careful study to determine the effect, of the latter change. Open Bn* Hearings. The case of the Washington Railway fi. Electric Co. was completed this morning, and one exhibit was placed on rhe record marking the beginning of i the case of the Washington Interurban Railroad Co., which operates busses j fron Fifteenth and H streets northeast 1 to Cheveriy, East Riverdale and College j ‘ Park. The fare on these busses is the : j same, as on the street cars, and it is ; proposed to increase it to 10 cents cash, ! with four tokens for 30 cents, as re quested by the street car companies. ] This exhibit showed that the bus line had lost money every month but one i since the busses were substituted for | trolley cars in May, 1923. The total loss up to date was given as $48,675. After receiving this exhibit, and be fore any questions were asked about It.' the commission suspended the hearing j until 10 o’clock Tuesday morning, when ; the case of the bus company will be re- \ sumed. to be followed by the presenta- ; tion of evidence by the Washington j Rapid Transit bus line, an independent' concern, which has been made a party i to the present rate case. Retirement Figures Sought. Mr. Hartman’s first questions were directed to the accuracy of the charges made upon the company's books for retirements of property. "Aren't your retirements made some ' times at a higher, sometimes at a lower j cost than rhe original cost?” Mr. Hart- I man asked, "and if the retirements are made at a lower cost, would that not I leave some balance in the valuation . figure that can attach only to retired : property?” | ’ That’s a general question." replied I Mr. Ham, “let us have something spe ; eifle.” ; “Very well.” said Mr. Hartman, “take ' the case of 254 track feet of rail from !

Lacking an evident motive, police are ! trying to find out. what occurred to i precipitate the shooting, since none of ; the neighbors had heard any argument i just prior to the shots. Joyce was so i weak from loss of blood at the hospital, | that his speech was inaudible when he was asked about the shooting after his arrival there. Say Wood Unfriendly. Neighbors said that Wood had shown ; an unfriendly attitude toward them * since taking up his residence with Joyce. He spent most of his time at work on what he called a photographer’s patent. . , < A veteran of the Spanish-American War. Wood is salts once to have been a patiept at the Government Hospital at Balboa. Joyce Is said to have secured his release from St. Elizabeth's follow ing his commitment in that institution after Wood had spot Sergt.

After this shooting Wood was con fined in St. Elizabeth's for six years, when he was released in 1926 on a jury verdict of sanity. Wood recently filed divorce proceed ings against his wife, through Joyce as his attorney.

Lucien T. Williams. 57, a local contractor, who has been miss ing from his home for six weeks, walked into his house in the 5800 block of Fifth stre»t, this morning, emaciated and ill from lack of food and his har- ■ rowing experiences. On the morning of .July 13, Williams was drawing about. S3OO from the Mount i Vernon Savings Bank here when three men accosted him and ask®d him if he would come with them to estimate on a Job. He agreed to meet them in a few minutes at Ninth and L streets. I and, after transacting hts business at the bank, did so. The ihree men were in a spdan and invited Williams to get in to ride to the site of the job they wanted done. I After going several blocks Williams be came suspicious and started question ing the men. That, is the last thing he i remembered of himself until four days ago he awoke in a hotel in Chicago, awakened to the full power of his mind . by the crash of an elevator in a build ing across the afreet. Williams told «£» family this morn ing that, as he remembers it now, he was beaten into unconsciousness by the three men in the car. When he came to he waa lying alongside a road near Marion. Ohio, his clothing shorn of their identification marks, his money gone and his memory blank. He was picked up by a farmer living 1 nearby and given food and shelter by the farmer, earning his keep as a hand on the farm. When the farm work gave out he was paid off by the farmer, and with a newly found acquaintance went I to Chicago. Williams had only a few dollars, he says, when he recovered his memory in Chicago. With this in his pockets he set out hitch-hiking for the Capital : and made the trip In four days. He was too ill to see any one today and has been placed under the care of the family physician.

TARIFF BILL FAILS TO BRING SUPPORT: Hoover Represented as Un willing to Bring Pressure ■ for Passage. BV DAVID LAWRENCE. Sign-; erp multiplying that the ad ministration would not he broken hearted if th® tariff bill were lost in the shuffle. Senator Borah'* announcement that ( he would seek the defeat of ihe hill' is coupled with the fact that no par- j tieular defense of th» measure, as ap proved by the Senate finance commit tee, will he made by President Hoover. Certainly no pressure will he brought ; tr> hear one way or the ether on admin istration Republicans, which means that the group which will stand behind 'he finance committee's bill will be a minority of the Senate. i Th» lukewarm attitude of the admin- . Istrarinn may also be reflected in the diminished enthusiasm of members of the House and ihe conferees as it now ! begins to be apparent, that the Senate will limit, revision almost entirely to, the agricultural schedule and some ] manges in the administrative provi sions, such as the acceptance of Ameri- , can valuation. Although there have been statements to the effect that the new bill would actually increase revenue, the Treasury Department is displaying little interest in the measure, though it. would like to see American valuation substituted for what it. believes to be an unequal and unfair method now used in calculating . tariff duties on imported merchandise, j Ways of Defeat Many. There are many ways in which the , new tariff bill can be. forced into oh- I livion. Senator Borah's resolution to limit revision to the agricultural sched ule has enough votes to pass, but, it is not known what will happen to Sena tor Brookhart's proposal to add the J export, debenture plan to the bill. A majority of the Senate voted for the j debenture plan when it was part of j the farm relief proposal, and at, that time it won conservative Democratic support, because the debenture scheme , was *o be optional with the Farm Board and not mandatory. Now that the Farm | Board has begun to function the deben ture plan mav not have as many j , friends, although Mr. Brookhart has begun to press very vigorously for it.s j passage. If it should be incorp.t'.atcd J in the tariff bill as it leaves the Senate j this would be an added reason for a i conflict between the House and Senate conferees, involving further delay, dead lock and possible abandonment of much J ;of the tariff revision that has been i proposed.

THE HAGUE, August 23.—Philip Snowden, British chancellor of The ex- 1 .chequer, ’his afternoon rejected ’he I I new compromise proposals offered him >by the other four principal creditor : ; power.- to satisfy the British demands for an increased share of German reparations. The basis of the arrangement which ! the other four principal creditor pow ers are seeking with ihe British is the increase of British receipts through cession and bv Jtaly of part, of her share of ’he annuities, by France of her interests in ’he balances available from the Dawes annuities this year, j which had been earmarked for thp ! smaller powers, a.nd by the transfer by Germany of part of her conditional an nuities to unconditional ones. France and Italy would compensate ihe smaller powers by revision of their debus. Some estimates of the amount ’hit assured to Great Britain fixed it at an per rent of the total demands made by Chancellor Snowden. Presages Failure. j Hopes which had been revived that < the conference might, yet. surmount all I obstacles and finally agree on adoption of the Young plan were shattered by ; the rejection on the part of the British : chancellor. Mr. Snowden, after considering verbal proposals presented by Premier .laspar ‘ of Belgium last, night and a further de tailed offer made to him thl- morning consulted his colleagues and decided that, the offers represented little ad vance on those already rejected and l could not he accepted. Mr. Snowden held that the offers of ; the four powers with a contribution by Germany in an increase of the uncon ditional annuities fell far short, of the ! estimate made last evening. It. was said in French and'Beigian circles that their | offer represented at least 75 per cent of ; the amount the British demanded, bu’ Mr. Snowden contended that it was . worth much less. i Been the most determined optimists this afternoon admitted they could see | no way in which the conference could j overcome the difficulties and it is now ! expected that, the sessions will end at I the beginning of npxt week in a full ' session that will enable the delegations to place their positions before the world.
