This entirely unexpected leniency with
the public. In view of the demand of
the telephone company and the tat
company, has somswhat shocked offi
cials ft the Utilities Commission.
However a hearing will be siren the
jitney men some time In the future to
determine whether there should be a
rise in Jitney rates from S cents to 10
cents. Some time ago a number of Jlt
nay operators wrote the commission
that they must have increased fares.
The commission directed that letters be
written all of those to whom licenses
have been issued asking- their views on
the question.
Many Jitneys are now operated between

DKTROIT, Mich.. Dec. 8. While
thousands of younr Americans
are ambitious to stow a mous
tache, scores of Qermtns her ar
making ever" effort to cet rid of
theirs. The United State mar
shal has prohibited them havlna
thelr moustaches which look like
the (Kalser', shaved off.
To grant the appeal, would
mean making- new photographs
to be filed at "Washington for
Identification purposes, and the

Ur or the city, and between Lincoln park
and the center.
The letters received Indicate that on
the H street rout the operators make
fair money on 5 cents, but they ask
that where thev run berond Fifteenth
and II streets they b allowed Increased
fares 10 oenta. lor Instance, between
the city and the District line on the
Bladensburr road, and 15 cents between
the city and and Chesapeake Junction.
The Brookland operators are disposed
to want 10 cents for their runs to and
from the center of the city.
Some citizens hate written the com
mission that if jitney service .to dis
tant points can be encouraged suf
ficiently to compete with the line of
the Washington Railway and Electric
Company they are willing to pay 10
cents. What they want Is a cbanc
to ret to their work and thtlr homes
under better and quicker conditions
than the car company now sTlves.
One trouble with the Jitneys is that
they, have nothing like a, schedule.
They run or fall .to run alont; certain
atreets just as they please" and the
public can not depend upon them'wlth
certainty. These and other phases of
the jitney question will be considered
at the hearing.
Tele shea e Rate Stir Feeyle.
Information It that the hearings
over Increased gts and Jelephone
rates will develdp considerable on the
part of the people. The ra hearing
is to be held December 18 and the
telephone hearing- on .December 20.
In analysing the telephone situa
tion In Washington the general public
is faat reaching; therooncluslon that
the Federal Government should be
willing- to bear whatever Increase may
be necessary, owlnr to the fact that
the heavy increased coats the com.
pany alleges, have been almost wholly
due to Government necessities and ac
tivities. The public's share of the In.
creased colt of operation has been
practically nothing compared to
the expenses incurred in rushing
preparation for the Government. The
public has, in ract. sunerea patiently
because it understood the strain on
the company in serving; the Govern
ment.
The Utilities Commission ha su
pervision of the telephone company
fonly so far a the service to the pub
lic Is concerned, it is possible mai
the bearing may develop a desire on
the part of the commission to tax
no action toward Increasing rate to
the public pending the efforts the
telephone company is making to have
the Government grant Increases. If
the Government should show a will
ingness to compensate the company
for Its losses there would be little
reason why the public should have
to pass the hat for & large, contribu
tlon. As urged by the telephone
company the people of Washington
are asked to contribute a' minimum
of 1250.000 additional mdy each
year, half of that being in pay sta
tions, and the bulk of the other halt
falling. on people who now nave un
limited service, but will have to take
an unlimited service at a probable
large Increase in payments.
As to gas, the demands of the Gov.
ernment have been comparatively
small, although It Is a considerable
Item In the business of the company,
and this feature Is likely to bs
brought out on the 35th.

to have started hi Investigation this
week, but when he undertook to find

many or whom ar to be with him, he
struck a snag. The Utilities Commis
sion hopes the delay will not be long,
the exigencies of conditions here de
manding prompt Investigation and re
port of conclusions.
The opinion among local utility ex
perta crystallises each day toward the
conclusion that varying working
hours In the Government department
promises the apeedlest relief from the
street car congestion In the morning
and afternoon hours. Mr. Bseler la
expected to have other recommends,
tlons that will contribute somewhat
toward bettering the car service, hut
the belief grow that the co-operation
of the Federal executive departments
in rearranging their working hours
so that all will not close and open at
the same time will be vitally neces
sary until plans for permanent relist
may be made and aeted upon.

Ex-Caotaln Henry Schneider, for
merly of the Seventh police precinct,
dismissed from the police force, told
The Times today he would appeal to
the District Supreme court from the
decision of the District Commis
sioners, making his suspension per
manent.
Captain Schneider declared he
would base his appeal upon charge
of unfairness In the presentation of
evidence, and stated he would "make
some startling revelations." Me re

charges he will prerer until the re

ney, Wilton J. Lambert. In the event
of the Supreme Court affirming the
action of the commissioners, Schnei
der said he will take, the case to the
Appellate court.
Again Leglnika charmed a, large
audience In Washington yesterday
afternoon. She wove a pli arouna
her hearer that made one forget the
mere achievement of thl marvelous
little pianist, and that carried one oft
to lands of Illusion, Isnds of fancy
whose clotures she painted and wnose
dramas sh told In tone-poem of
deepest emotion and of great beauty.
The concert wa the rourtn in
the Ten Star Serte at the National
Theater. It served to emphasise the
fact, that Leglnska must be rated as
an Individualist, and It I !n Inter
pretation, in dramatic portrayal, that
her power ar most telling.
I Masterly Interpreter.
Possessed of a mastery and
breadth In execution that responds to
her every command, this little black-
robed figure, a she bends over the
keyboard, makes of her Instrument a
varied orchestral palette through
which she reads eloquence and deep
meaning Into every phrase. She has
something to tell through each com
position, and she holds one expectant
every minute aa to bow she will
tfll It.
' The spirit of Llsit was the domi
nant note In the program, for he
lloes his great sonata In B minor and
the "Mastppa" study, LeglnsVa added
a encore hi "Campanella" and the
eighth Hungarian Hhapaody. It was
like a potent tragic recitative her an
nouncement or the opening passages
of the sonats. Tone and interpreta
tion again vie with each other, or
perhaps they combine In lyric mo
ments of surpassing loveliness that
bear the Imprint of a "Benedlelte."
or In dramatic devastation told In dis
sonant chords or In the ever recur
rent dark notes of Fate. The bells
of the "Campanella" she held like
fluid crystals, cold and clear; while
the Rhapsody was a creation In Itself.
Clvea Clear Dellneatlea.
How far a course has the piano run
In modern music? The oriental fan
tasy, "Islamey," by Balaklrsw, was
again all orchestral In Its tone tex
ture. The art of the player brought
Into it a real atmosphere at odd tlmea.
a background of such rich fiber and
tempestuous movement that It seem
ed as mad and as Intricate as
"Scheherazade." but It was also
abundantly planlstlc and was given
with a masterly deer delineation.
At the close of her Chopin "Etude"
In E major, there was an Impressive
silence. The etude was beautifully
colored, and her gradation were de
lightful, while In the tTolonalse" and
even In the dainty figure of the
Scarlatti numbers the dramatist spoke
with Individual force and accent. The
Bublnstsln "Studs" for the left hand
was measlve In Its brnad curves and
weep. But first and last the drama
tic Imagination of thla tiny artist of
great powers Is the thing that leaves
a lasting Impress on-the mind.
