A Reassuring Promise
Everyone I in n nwashing washing Washington ton Will Villread read
with pleasure the text of the letter I Iwith
sent to Chairman Gallinger of the
Senate District Committee by b Presi ¬
dent de nt Dunlop of the Capital Traction j
Company Mr Dunlopsays Dunlop says briefly
Dear Sir In connection with Senate I
bill 7122 which was W lS introduced into the
Senate yesterday csterda I beg to advise that
tnis company is now engaged In vestibul
InS Its cars and will have them all
equipped before next n t season
Therefore I Ires res reectful1y pectfully ectfully request that
no action be takeit with respect to this
The Times Tim S thinks th inlm the th e whole Wh ole city
will accept this assurance as com ¬ I Iwill
plete In another instance w when len
Congress considered the establish esta pliSh 1
ment of an allnight car service by 1
law lawa a pledge of this same character
was given and it has always been j
kept by Mr Dunlop and his company j
For several hundred motormen then
the end of their suffering is in sight j
But The Times does not think this
assurance by letter obviates the need
for the law which Senator Gallinger j
proposes There are many other
cars ars in Washington V than those operat i
ed by the Capital C pital Traction Company J
and not all are equipped with Vesti J
bules As S no pledge has come from i
the operators of those other oth cars a J I Ithe
law may be necessary necessary to obta obtain in ves vestibules j
tibules for those other cars f
The he ilusinessMens z Business Mens Association j t
gives sign sign of ofits its new spirit by b taking
lip 1p this th s question qu stion of vestibules in ri i
earnest Its president Has given ghr en sup SUpI ¬ I
port to t the movement from the first
and yesterday its boar board d o of f directors
adopted resolutions favoring the in ¬
stallation stallat on of vestibules and directed i j
the secretary so to notify not fy the th e two i
street streetcar car companies There is now no
doubt where the Business Mens As ¬

Levies LiesNo Not Gifts I
Certain clerks ina in a Treasury bureau I
Were ere invited seve several days ag ago to sU sUb4 sub b4 ¬
scribe for forflowers flowers as a token of sym sy ¬
pathy p thy for a bereaved berea ve d workmate On 1
Investigation jn stigation it developed d de velopelthat eloped that the he
bereaved berca ed one had lost a grea grea greataunt t taunt nt
That was all That was the only
connec connection tio n between those thOS e other oth erClerIS clerks
all aiim in need of all they earn earnand and the 1 1all
funeral for which they were to
provide flowers Yet the inevitable
subscription went its r ro ronds unds nds and the
cost of a pair of stockings here h re a
good luncheon there th re a good book
somewhere ei3 were vcreaJs a5 sot r dovn dov
All through the th aepsrimc npatmepL p t c bLs l Hhjs tl1is hi

every death although rarely for great at
aunts and greatuncles gre atuncles to be sure surej
gifts fts to every retiring official sub ¬
scriptions scri Uons for numerous and persist IJE > rsist ¬
ent poor families familiesthere there is isapparent1y apparently
no natural limit liD1it to it I
Not long ago subscriptions fur a
testimonial to the head of a 1 bureau I Itestimonial
a h he I1zad e ad who retired witaout overmuch
gi gOlY oiy were solicited solici ted d by b the chief clerk
of Hie bureau The enterprise had all I
the force of a levy None of ofthe the clerks
dared lag behind in i ii the giving al ¬
though many of o them protested with I
Plight and main When the levies lei f fI I
Were collected and the gift was I
bought the chief Clli f clerk made a speech I
and the retiring bureau chief mide a
speech and you youwouJd would have thought I Ispeech
to read those two speeches sP eeh s that Wash ¬ I
ington was leaving his men at Valley Yalle
Forge or Leonidas was saying fare ¬ I IForge
well to his men at Thermopylae The I
thing would have havebecn been a burlesque I
if ifi it t had not been too serious to
laugh at at I
No one on onein in the departments or out I
of if c them themhas has the slightest objection I
to flowers for the dead and gifts to
the living if they are the honest and
willing expression of sympathy symp < thy or 0 I
esteem e teem For such uses it would woul suffice
if the money were dropped into a box
without any record of the giver But I Iwithout
a subscription subscriptionwith with names set down d wn
and the amount of the gift set oppo j
s site t the nameJoses name loses all character as
a voluntary testimonial I Ia
And incidentally the collection of
for gifts to
money retiring officials I
is forbidden by statute and the col ¬ I
lection of money for flowers is for ¬ i
bidden by the regulations of nearly
every bureau in every department j I
A Working Basis I
No claim to perfection is made mad for I j
the EschTownsend bill in regulation J
of railroad rates It is in a sense
experimental but it affords a working
basis That it passed the House with
only seventeen negative votes record ¬
ed against it shores sh Ws that whatever
the outcome the principle of the
measure neasur has the indorsement of the I
public and advocacy of O f it tended to I
the tbeeffacing effacing of party lines I II
The main feature of the bill is the
granting to the Interstate Commerce I
Commission the right to name a rea ¬ I
sonable freight tariff and to make the
rate operative The other features of
the bill billwhile while important in themselves
are all supplemental to this purpose
An increase from five to seven I
members is made in the commission
and salaries are to be flOOOO 10000 Thus
to the thebod thebody body may be drawn dravmmen men of re ¬
pu pute te in the law or the field of traffic
That it will be an organization marked I
by dignity acumen and andhighminded highminded
ness is to be taken for granted j
There is to be a court of transporta ¬
tion composed of five circuit judges I
If adverse criticism were to be made
it would touch upon this phase of the
subject as an appeal from the com ¬ I
mission to the Court of Transporta Transportation ¬
tion and thence to the Supreme Court I
must involve inyolvedelayHowever delay However as J
the theruUng ruling of the commission is to to be
in force until set aside by a reviewing revie wing
tribunal the temptation temptation to cause de ¬
lay will be less lessacute acute than usual
The country believing the measure
nec necessary arJ and as good a plan as a has
been devised would be glad to see
it on the statute books The ral
roads have not opposed it markedly
and railroad rail toad managers it is conceded
in fairness seem inclined to lend
themselves to a trial of the scheme
on its merits and aildwithoutanydesign without any design 1
to make its operation odious
The Lads Foot i
Not long ago agcaprize a prize was offered i
to the lady having the H Hsma smallest sma l est and
prettiest foot It was won by a per ¬ i
son so constituted constitu ted as to have to wear
a childs size of shoe That is to say
that a foot abnormal in type out ¬
classed the shapely and natural mem ¬
The size of the foot should be in
proportion to the size of the whole
body It either is this or it is to
some extent a deformity Thus a
small foot might as easily be a ablem blem ¬
ish as an adornment
There is much nonsense about a bout the I
liking for a little foot The woman
who is well developed physically phYSiCallYj j
125 12 and
weighing perhaps pounds ponndsmd
from that to fifty pound more would
not only find the little foot of scant
service but that the possession of o it
would detract from her good looks
As to shapeliness 5 the small foot is no
more apt to be perfect than the one one I Im0re
which takes a healthy healthYWOm womans ans size sze
of shoe j
Cinderella had a tiny foot footb but utshe she
also had a pumpkin for a carriage I
The Chinese lady has a particularly
tiny foot and that t at she is proud of it
