THE WASHINGTON TDIES. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1919.
Bureau Workers File ' Sharp Protest Against Zone System Adoption It Happens in the Best Regulated Families t JrteBtJBff in no uncertain term" asrainst the application or the Wash ineton Railway and Electric Com pany for an increase in fare, the Joint conference board of the trade organizations of the Bureau of Eh V"av'inK and Printing: yesterday filed a lengthy memorandum with the Pub lic T'tilitiea Commission. The memorandum urged an ar rangement which would bring the two Washington street car companies Tinder a single management, assuring Stable conditions in the future. The "Syme merger plan" carried the unanimous indorsement of the joint ronference board of the bureau. This board represents all of thr persons employed at the bureau with the ex ception of directing heads. It is com posed of representatives from each ef the forty-eight trade unions hav ing members employed there. Tweaty-Elgkt Cents a Day Fare. The memorandum recites numerous facts concerning the transportation problem in 'Washington, pointing out the fact that many in fact the great majority of the bureau employes .would be forced to pay as high as 2S cents daily car fare should the pro posed "zone system" be adopted. Further, this system, the petition declares, would wrk a hardship oa suburban residents, and serve to de crease the value of suburban prop erty. The petition further recites . only cne of the two traction compa nies, the Washington Railway and Electric Company, is in need of addi tional revenue; the second company Capital Traction Company is making raasonable profits under existing conditions. It would be manifestly unfair to add exorbitant profits to the one com pany to meet the deficit of the other. sind. further. it would be equally un fair to grant the increased fare to the one company without according the same privilege to the other, the petition states. . Sysae Plan Theaght Right. Under the Syme pl&n.an equitable f arrangement could be reached, de clare the workers. The chief dlf culty would be in getting the two companies to agree on the present valuations of their properties. The memorandum urges that Con gress at once undertake to solve the preblem and ask that the Public Utilities Commission hold the question In abeyance until some action look ing to the future is, taken. In conclusion the memorandum quotes from poster's in Philadelphia street cars: "High faces make riders. Rialk. "Low fares make walkers ride. r "More fares make low fares." , The memorandum. isv signed by Ed- ward XI William.", chairman, and Ma tilda Lmdsa. secretary of the Joint t'onferem e Board. In addition it i signed by th accredited representa tives of the unions represented at the bureau.
