States Supreme Court, saw a contro
versy on Pennsylvania avenue last

was walking down the Avenue with As
sociate Justice Lamar about 5 o'clock.

and damage their property. They say
that there are at least three other ways
to get 'the wires up the hill.
President Burr Is in receipt of a com
munication from Electrical Engineer
Wa.ter C. Allen, who advises" him that
the erection of the po.es has been
-stopped pending final decision by the
Commissioners. The point emphasized
by the citizens is that the wires, are de
sired in an underground system, similar

coal was found In a house in Hillsdale.

Sylvester Orders Rigid
.. Enforcement of Rules
Special orders were Issued from Po
lice Headquarters today for a rigid en
forcement of the'trafflc regulations at
intersections of streets. The following
notice was sent by Major Sylvester to
the captains of the precincts:
"Complaint Is made that the operators
of motor vehicles do not lessen their
speed at intersecting streets, and that
they vlolaate the speed law in turning

But they didn't want to -stop, and rush

and had to 'be dragged apart three
times before they finally were led away,
each one glaring at the other and ready
to sail in again.
Justice Lamar didn't enjoy it at all,
and turned away from the spectacle.
The Chief Justice stood up close and
saw it all, keenly interested, bur seem
ing to realize the hopelessness of is
suing any injunctions, restraining or
ders, quo warrantos,' or mandamuses
which would get the slightest attention.
"Hard to stop," "hard to stop," he
murmured, in a. tone of admiration, as
he turned away at last from the young
bearcats.' and walked up Fourteenth
street with Justice Lamar.
Pennsylvania avenue extended, from
the bridge crossing the Anacostia river
to Minnesota avenue, will be regarded
as a business street, and the parking
and sidewalks outlined accordingly. If
the petition of the property owners In
that part of the Twining City district
to the Commissioners Is acted upon fa
vorably. Citizens of the locality were
Informed that there was doubt at the
Municipal Building whether to treat
the avenue between the points named
as a residential or a business street
Robert F. Bradbury and other property
owners circulated a petition, which has
been sent to the Commissioners, urging
that it be held to be a1 business street.
This- will mean that there will be es
tablished a ten-foot parking and a ten
foot sidewalk on each side of the street.
The other plan provided for forty feet
of parking.

Postponement of its blanket order,
making sweeping express rate reduc
tions, was announced today by the In
terstate Commerce Commission. The
order was to have become effective De
cember 1. but has been further post
poned until February 1. No reason for
tho change is given, but It is understood
that the express companies showed
they did not have sufficient time in
which to get ready for the new sched
ules of rates. The express companies
were ordered today to file their new
tariffs of reduced rates by January 10.
The original order was made effective
October 15 last
The new rates and orders affected
the Adams, American and Wells-Fargo
Companies. Their delay in filing all
traffics was assigned as cause for the
latest order. t

ordered changes to clarify general ex
press regulations and ordered that some
suburbs of Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati,
New York, Philadelphia. Pittsburgh,
Washington, and Newark, N. J., bo

Saturday they will spend their time In
sightseeing trips about the Capitol,
guests of the local temperance union.,
Members of the local union who had
returned from Asbury Park made up a
receDtion committee, and. under the
leadership of Mrs. Theo T.- Moore, met
the visitors at the Union Station, es
corting them to their hotels.
Arrangements for a formal reception
to have been held in the W. C. T. U.
headquarters tonight have been given
up because of the death of Mrs. Jennie
W. Robinson, vice president of the

a definite and syatemlatized campaign.
There Is to be a great mass meeting
each year, also a prayer day In which
eery union in the country will take
part The first prayer day comes Janu
ary 15.
"There wasn't the slightest opposition
to suffrage at the convention as far as
I could determine. The movement Is
growing wopderfully. The reports of
various delegates from States where
suffrage is enjoyed Strengthened the
cause greatly at the convention."
Mrs. Henry's opinions of the suffrage
movement are borne out by other re
turning delegates.
