All of the' strike breakers bade the union pickets poodb. an J started to walk toward the Lmon Station for trains or their homes. "Aren't ou ROinc to ride down town," called one of the union pick ets to the departltijr men. "Not on thoe scab cars," was the response in unison from the erstwhile strike breakers. Traffic Cnnditlnnn Iletter. Traffic conditions in the down town section seemed muih improved dur ing the rush hours this morning and the early work goers were Riven the brsi scrlce they hae had since the htrlke commenced. The Capital Trac tion cars, were crowdeJ, and the serv ice on the Washington Railway lines was still far from normal. .The Maryland line running to ll.xnttsville and Iliverdale and the Columbia line between the Treasury and Fifteenth street northeast were not up to the standard set during the last few- das. A number of minor delajs occurred Cars on the E street lines running between Georgetown and Mt. Pleas ant and Uast Capitol street and Thirteenth and 1) screets were tied up shortly after 10 o'olockby an Ana costla car leaving the track at Elev enth and P streets. The" wrecking crew of the railroad company said a bolt thrown In the tracks caused the derailment Union officals denied thls statement. vt union headquarters It was said this morning the service being rendered by the company was no better than that given the beglnnlg of the week. Son There Are I.onc Walts. The railway is fooling a number of people," said Garth Calderhead, secietary of the car men's local union. "They are running cars In bunches, but they are far from keeping up to the schedulj maintained brfora the strike Gurpicketa report a number of delays on all llns, particularly the Maryland and Columbia lines. There are long waits between the , bunches of cars and careful observ ance will show the company is not giving two-thirds of Its normal serv ice, despite the claim of the officials of the cpmpany." Union leaders also declared the smpathy of the residents, of the city was In their fat or and the public Is not patronizing the cars. At the railway company's offices, V? P Ham, vice ppresident of the company, said: "We are running a very good ser Mco this morning. It is better than jestcrday afternoon's service and es terday afternoon we had the best since the strike was called. Flat Wbrrls Noticed. A number of "flat wheeled cars were noticed on all the lines this morning, and it was said by the union leaders that the Inexperience or me strike breakers Is responsl ble for this. They declared the flat wheels re sulted from throwing too much air Into the brakes, and the company lias not a sufficient force at the J- street repair shops to grind the wnr-eis out.

XVhn own the ISO.noo shares of capi tal stock of the Washington Jtailw ay and Klectric Company which Fresl dent Clarence F. King represents, and out of whose pockets is coming the estimated loss of XK.OOO a day result Ing from "the present strike? Hecause the stock changes hands from day to day. It is not known ex actly- who the holders of all the shares are, but a fairly good Idea may be had of the real powers behind the Washington Railway and Klectric Company by consulting the report of the company for the year 101G, as submitted to Congress. This report shows that on Decem ber 31, 101(1. there were approximately 2.200 holders of the 150.000 shares, their holdings ranging from one share to 27,500 shares. There are several score of persons holding one share, but a glance over the list of stock holders and the figures opposite their names in the report Instantly reveals that there Is only one holder of 27.500 shares, and this holder's name is not given as an individual. Bis; Block In Trust. "Fidelity Trust Company, of Balti more, Md., trustee, under Indenture, Washington Utilities Company, dated June 1, 1010 27,500," is the way the entry is made In the report. Besides the Washington Utilities Company, there are Just thirteen per sons holding lots of more a thousand shares. These thirteen persons repre sent 24.843 shares of stock. They are as follows: W. R. Hlbbs & Co 2.S12 Truxton Beale 2,523 J. C. Freeland 1.000 Magdalena Lieb.., 1.21.1 J. W. Rich 1.000 Washington A. Roabllng -4.500 II. K. Slngwald 2,400 Charles A. Spalding . 2,S23 Fred H.

Thompson 500 Railway Relief Association 700 Guy F. Whiting TV) A. S. Worthlngton GW Total D.TSi From the above figures it will be seen that thirty persons control (C!,'J1S of the 150.000 shares of stock of the company. This leaves K7.7K! shares in the hands of the remaining ".170 holders, h'ince most or this 2,170 are very small holders, having from one to ten shares, and since It is hardly to be expected that these smalt hold era would take the trouble to attend annual election to ote their stock. It is apparent that the 27.500 shares held by the Washington Utilities Company would decide the election If the other votes were anjnhere near equal. . Added to thu even half of the 21.S1S shares controlled by the group or thirteen holders controlling 1.000 shares or more, would make the position of the Washington Utlli ties Company even more secure.

A rising vole, without dissent, was taken at the car men's utilon meeting In TjpoKraphlc.il Temple today, pledging the members to stand firm to the union In the wage controversy with the AYaahlnKton Railway & Klec tric Cpmpan.
