I It Is Said.
Jhnt'thft decision of tne, New York
x-uono service commission to order unl-
Yersal. transfers upon the surface street
railways of that city, comes at a for
. tunate time, and will aselst tho, cam
paign fop transfers upon the street 'car
una of the district, and that the rea
sons 'fdr the order are Just as nllca
ble to 'conditions In the' District as they
ate In New York, are, the opinions to
day of Charles W.-Darr, chairman of
tn citltena' Conference on Universal
Transfers, and .Capt James F. Oyster,
president of the Chamber of Com
merce. , j , v
"The order of the New York commis
sion," Bald Mr. Darr, "comes at a pecu
liarly fortunate .time, for It will dem
onstrate to Congress that If the com
plicated, systems of New York can bo
made to Issue 'universal transfers. It
ought to be a-comparatively, easy mat
ter to arrange In Washington. The
order, too, and the reasons set forth
by Commissioner Cram for Issuing It,
cannot help but attract .the attention of
many members of Congress and impress
them with the example the metropolis
has set for.the Capital."
. ' Oyster's Statement.
Qaptaln Oyster agreed with the state
ments made, by '.Commissioner Cram In
tbetr-vr applicability to I-conditions In
"Washington. "While I .am a corpora
tion, man In the; sense that I believe
orery' corporation- Is Justly entitled to
all reasonably, profits, yet I think tha
transfers here .would 'not work a hard
ship upon, the railway companies.- and
that, .on the other hand, the people are
entitled to-this privilege, .since the rail-way--vconipanica
occupy the public
yhe.ew York .public service commis
sion' yesterday afternoon ordered Us
counsel to draw; an order directing all
.the surface street railways to Issue free
'transfers, so that the people of 'New
'York -can ride from any point In. Man
hattan to any other point upon the pay
ment of one fore. The order will be ef
fective January 1. It will provldo for
the issuance of transfers between all
Branches of tho company to which the
Initial fare Is paid and. also to one other
company and from that company back
go the company which received the. fare.
.There are 1M transfer points.
Reasons for Order.
The reasons given by the commission
tor tho order.. as expressed by Commis
sioner Cram, are as follows and are be
lieved to be exactly the same reasons
for, asking universal transfers In the
r- "Transfers are beneficial to the pub
.'Ho service corporations, the traveling
public, and the municipality.
.Theybeneflt the public service cor
porations, because they Increase their
traffic: this Is shown by the fact that
their receipts were greater when uni
versal transfers existed than the re
eel pte -after .their abolition.
"Ilrst The larger gross receipts were
obtained practically rwlthout" any addi
ctions) eitpenMb to the companies. The
transfer system also leads to a great In
;cieaso In Phort trips, which are more
profitable than long ones, and trans
fers were, .universal when the share
holders operated the companies (before
the receiverships In other words, when
the companies were operated by their
"Second The transfer system Bftves
the public the additional fare, lands
passengers closer to their destination,
-and appeals particularly to women pas
sengers. "Third Ihe municipality benefits In
the increased value of real estate, the
Increase of traffic enhancing the value
of the .abutting property."

One of the subjects engaging much

the lepers at this beautiful settlement is

clubs, churches, race track, two bands,
moving-picture theater, and the like.

islands. Ho says the last year, like the
three preceding it, has been one of great
prosperity. He Bays that crops nave

tries have been begun and old ones
extended; transportation and communi
cation facilities have been increased by
additional vessols, by railway, street
railway, and road construction, and by
Improvements In wireless and telephone
