Action to fax taken by various
citizens' associations, favoring- unl-
versal" transfers In connection with
th crantlnr of straight 5-cent car
feres to city stAt railways, has
added Impetus to the known inten
tion of members of the Public Utilities
Commission to Tiyrjr thoroughly go
Into that subject.
That "universal" transfers would
beyond doubt be favored by the com
mission If It does not interfere with
the necessary financial assistance to
be riven the companies through a
C-cent fare, can be stated with con
fidence. It is the Intention of the
commission and of representatives of
citizens' associations who will be pres
ent at the hearings beginning October
7 to develop facts as to what might
be the effect upon the two railway
companies of transfers at vital points
throughout the city.
Experts like John A. Beeler agree
that interchangeable transfers are of
great value to the public and often to
street railways, hut declare It Is a
question for careful study.
The shortening of long roundabout
hauls is one advantage to the com
panles, aa well as the public, and
there are a number of these In the

There will be strong pressure from
representatives of the people for at

transfer Idea, so long approved by
civic bodies. If the general introduc
tion of the plan should threaten dan
gerous financial loss. It Is possible,
cltltens feel today, that the plan may
